Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas Walk First Joint Red Carpet Since Separating in August 2013

16 April 2014 4:50 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are making it work. Eight months after the famous couple separated to "evaluate and work on their marriage," the A-list actors reunited on the red carpet Tuesday night. Zeta-Jones—who also debuted new blunt bangs—joined her husband of 13 years for The Library's opening night at The Public Theater in New York City. The actress, 44, and the actor, 69, have been spotted together often in recent months, but this marked the first time they attended an official event since separating. They were supporting director Steven Soderbergh, who created the play. Zeta-Jones worked with the filmmaker on Traffic, Ocean's Twelve and Side Effects, while Douglas worked »

‘The Library’ Theater Review: Steven Soderbergh, Scott Z. Burns Take Aim at Gun Violence

15 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The title of Scott Z. Burns's first play is “The Library,” but its poster eschews books in favor of a single image: a gun on a plain white background. On closer look, however, there is a book on this poster. The spine of the Holy Bible runs along the length of that firearm. Surprisingly, “The Library,” which opened Tuesday under the direction of Steven Soderbergh at the Public Theater, doesn't have a lot to say about America's gun laws – or lack of them. Burns, screenwriter for Soderbergh's “Side Effects” and “Contagion,” wisely focuses his drama instead on telling a. »

Channing Tatum Says He’s Met about Playing Gambit; Reveals “Everyone” Will Likely Be Back for Magic Mike 2

15 April 2014 10:24 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Though few can rival Matthew McConaughey in the realm of “career renaissance” at the moment, Channing Tatum has undergone a fascinating transformation over the past few years.  He first broke out as a model-slash-actor in the first Step Up, but he began branching out with Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 film Haywire.  He subsequently collaborated with Soderbergh on two more films to excellent results—Magic Mike and Side Effects—and proved himself a very skilled comedic actor with turns in 21 Jump Street and This Is the End.  His upcoming films range from dark drama (Foxcatchter) to hard sci-fi/fantasy (Jupiter Ascending), and there are also a few more exciting prospects on the horizon. During a recent interview with MTV, Tatum revealed that he has indeed met about playing Gambit in a potential X-Men spinoff film, expressing his love for the character and willingness to tackle the role.  He also provided an update »

First Look at It's Hell Getting Old from Hellevator Man Anthology; First Word on New Feature Mindless

14 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Two forces to be reckoned with have teamed up to bring us our first look at "It's Hell Getting Old," a horror short from director Patrick Rea that will be part of Blanc/Biehn Productions' new elevator-set anthology Hellevator Man.

Kansas City-based Rea's short stars Kip Niven (Jayhawkers, New Year’s Evil), Joicie Appell (Nailbiter), Victor Raider-Wexler (Minority Report), and Nancy Marcy. It was executive produced by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Michael Biehn, and Lony Ruhmann.

The script, written by Rea, deals with four elderly people trapped in an elevator on their way to their 50th Class Reunion, and one of them may have forgotten to take some important medication. The film was shot in Kansas City, Missouri, and the director of photography was Hanuman Brown-Eagle.

In addition to a few behind-the-scenes photos from "It's Hell Getting Old," we also have the kick-off announcement for Bbp's Mindless, a mind-bending thriller that marks »

‘Terminator's’ Michael Biehn Picks ‘The Artist's’ Ben Kurland to Star in ‘Mindless’ (Exclusive)

1 April 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Blanc/Biehn Productions has started pre-production on the indie thriller “Mindless,” with executive producer Michael Biehn casting Ben Kurland (“The Artist”) alongside fellow rising star Hallie Jordan (“To the Bridge”), The Wrap has learned. “We needed a versatile young actor with a wide range to pull this role off and I feel we found exactly that in Ben Kurland,” said Biehn, who hand-picked Kurland to play the male lead. Described as being in the vein of thrillers such as “Memento” and “Side Effects,” the film stars Jordan as a young woman with amnesia who faces deadly consequences as she pieces together her. »

29 March 2014 3:44 PM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Rumors of a sequel to Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike have been bubbling for some time now, bringing fans of the original into a tizzy when star Channing Tatum posted to his Facebook page a photo of himself supposedly at work on the script under the gaze of a bust of Matthew McConaughey. Confirmation of the project has now come at long last, along with news of the sequel's vivid title, as The Playlist reports that Magic Mike Xxl is indeed in the works, and will begin shooting in the fall. »

The Face Of Love – The Review

27 March 2014 10:20 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

In recent years we have seen a number of films that are clearly inspired by the works of the legendary director Alfred Hitchcock. Just last year, not one but two films were released that carried visual and narrative traits that were all too common in the work of the master of suspense. Both Side Effects and Stoker transformed the idea of a Hitchcock thriller for modern audiences while still clearly letting their respected director’s voices be heard.

This certainly isn’t the case with Matthew McDuffie and Arie Posin’s story of a mournful widow. As the film opens, we see Nikki (Annette Bening) coping with the death of her husband Garrett (Ed Harris). Flashbacks to happier times still haunt her as she attempts to move on five years after his death. When visiting an art museum one afternoon she sees what appears to be her husband sitting in front of her. »

Film Review: ‘Shaadi ke Side Effects’

21 March 2014 5:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It explains a lot when frustrated musician and new husband Sid (Farhan Akhtar) admits to a friend in “Shaadi ke Side Effects” (“Side Effects of Marriage”) that he does not watch much TV. That’s the only way he could possibly have missed the fact that every plot point hinges on exaggerated just-married “crises” that were done to death decades ago on TV sitcoms and in standup comedy routines. The often lively staging of writer-director Saket Chaudhary will keep viewers alert and hopeful for longer than viewers might expect, but at a Bollywood-mandated running time of almost 2½ hours, the film’s repetitive scenes of bickering and reconciliation become almost unbearable. You may find yourself rooting for divorce.

The wearying central issue of this impeccably upper-middle-class rom-dram-com, in which no one ever sweats a car payment or worries about healthcare costs, is how much truth a marriage can stand, and whether »

Summit, Participant Media Acquire ‘The Burglary;’ The Story Of 8 Whistleblowers Who Stole Hoover’s FBI Secrets

19 March 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Decades before Julian Assange and Edward Snowden became the scourge of U.S. intelligence organizations by leaking secret documents, an unheralded group of eight anti-war activists broke into an FBI branch office one night in Philadelphia and made off with a treasure trove of classified documents they fed to newspapers that bared the ruthlessness displayed by the FBI in spying on and blackmailing those it considered troublemakers. Summit Entertainment has teamed with Participant Media to acquire the rights to tell the story of those bandits, acquiring the Betty Medsger book The Burglary: The Discovery Of J. Edgar Hoover’s Secret FBI, which was published in January by Knopf, and an accompanying article by Mark Mazzetti published in The New York Times the same month. They’ve set Scott Z. Burns to write the script and produce with Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar, with Todd Hoffman exec producing. Ashley Zalta is a co-producer. »

Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin May Direct Jo Nesbø Adaptation The Son

18 March 2014 4:41 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Channing Tatum has made no secret of the fact that he’d like to direct sooner rather than later, hinting that he might make his first foray behind the camera on the in-development sequel Magic Mike 2.  However, it looks like he may have found a different, albeit interesting project on which to make his directorial debut instead.  Deadline reports that Tatum and his producing partner Reid Carolin are in talks to produce an adaptation of Jo Nesbø’s crime thriller novel The Son at Warner Bros., with the hopes of possibly taking the helm of the project as well.  Hit the jump for more. Since stretching his acting chops to surprising success in films like Magic Mike, Side Effects, and 21 Jump Street (and the upcoming drama Foxcatcher), Channing Tatum has been looking to expand his filmmaking horizons.  He already has a few credits under his belt as producer, including the upcoming 22 Jump Street, »

Rooney Mara Cast In 'Pan'

Pan is the latest adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan narrative. Directed by Joe Wright, the film will be set in the midst of World War II, according to Entertainment Weekly. Peter, in this retelling, will be an orphan that gets captured by pirates, who bring him to Neverland.

In addition to Mara, Hugh Jackman and Garrett Hedlund are already on board the Peter Pan project. Jackman will be playing the role of Blackbeard, while Hedlund has been cast as Hook. As of yet, the part of Peter Pan himself has yet to be cast.

There Are No Small Parts. Beauty from the Margins

12 March 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

One of my favorite activities each year is compiling a list of actors who really nailed their brief but not necessarily coveted roles. Oh sure sometimes a small part is a true get and key to the narrative. There's no way to watch 12 Years a Slave, for example, and miss the importance of "Mistress Shaw", so perfectly rendered by Alfre Woodard. And some tiny parts are designed as cameos for stars: think Jean DuJardin and Matthew McConaughey in The Wolf of Wall Street. But the bulk of small roles each year in any actor's medium, go unnoticed with the actors adding depth to the ensemble and colors to the director or writer or showrunner's palette. Me, I love looking at the peripheries and seeing which actors are hungry, which find ways to maximize their tertiary characters or simply inhabit them so well that you get everything you need in that one scene or, »

300: Rise of an Empire smashes The Lego Movie off top UK spot

11 March 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Togas-to-go and abs to die for atop the UK box office, while Grand Budapest Hotel books in a surprise third

• More from UK box office

The winner

Seven years after the original 300 film, and with Gerard Butler's slain character missing this time around, it was by no means certain that audiences had an appetite for second helpings. But backers Warners and Legendary Pictures will be plenty happy with the opening numbers for 300: Rise of an Empire in the Us and internationally. In the UK, the film, from director Noam Murro (Smart People) and starring Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom), achieved a robust £2.76m debut. While that's well down on 300's opening salvo – £4.75m including previews of £784,000 – it's not bad for a film that seemed short of marketable elements other than the 300 brand name.

Rise of an Empire knocked The Lego Movie off the top spot after a three-week run. »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 10th 2014

10 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Perhaps the only news of note this week is that in a move echoing what they did with Breaking Bad, Netflix has swooped in and gained rights to the TV series of From Dusk Til Dawn made in the states for Robert Rodriguez’s new El Rey network cable channel. Netflix will stream the episodes the day after they air in the states every week, curiously they are still billing this as ‘A Netflix Original’ when this isn’t the case necessarily. I have no idea as to the quality of this, the film From Dusk Til Dawn was one of my favourites when I was a teenager but how you drag that out into a ten part TV show I don’t know, let alone a possible second series. I watched the trailer and it looks solid and well-made as opposed to a cheap cash in and features Don Johnson »

Who Is 'Dom Hemingway'? Watch Trailer and New Nsfw Videos for the Film Starring Jude Law

27 February 2014 11:22 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Fox Searchlight has launched a new Nsfw video gallery for the film "Dom Hemingway," starring Jude Law as a philandering huckster and safecracker who's just spent 12 years in prison. Now fresh out of the big house, he seeks retribution with the help of former partner-in-crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) against his old boss (Demian Bechir). But could "Dom" be more washed up than Law's not-so-illustrious career and public image of late? Law was excellent in Steven Soderbergh's 2012 "Side Effects. Reviews for "Dom Hemingway" out of the UK and Tiff have been mixed, with some praise reserved for Law's deranged performance. Watch a new trailer for the film below, and two clips from the gallery, which you can watch in full (there are six clips) via the film's website here. »
