Blue Is the Warmest Colour, the award-winning French film, is already notorious for its fisticuffs between stars and director. It's the latest in an unhappy tradition of histrionics and control-freakery. Here are some vintage feuds
Directors and actors being what they are, they like a good argument. On one side are obsessive perfectionists, on the other self-involved exhibitionists – or so the theory goes. It's often proved a combustible mix in the past, with what is euphemistically termed "creative tension" often adding to the dynamic of the final film.
The media, obviously, is the silent third partner in all this; though you, the reader, ought to be equally ashamed, gleefully drinking in all the foul-mouthed resentment and high-decibel score-settling. You don't have to look far: actors Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopolous turned on Blue Is the Warmest Colour director Abdellatif Kechiche, accusing him of traumatising them during the extended periods shooting sex and fight scenes. »

In Exit 147, Kitsch stars as a sadistic cop who plays mind games with a young traveller who he stops driving through the desert one night.
Set to go into production in the second quarter of 2014, it is directed by Julian Jarrold, who recently made Hitchcock TV movie The Girl and is also known for comedy drama Kinky Boots and period biopic Becoming Jane.
Umedia International, the sales arm of the Belgian film finance and production group, is also handling world sales on Dough.
The comedy-drama stars Jonathan Pryce as an old Jewish baker struggling to keep his business afloat until his young apprentice accidentally drops cannabis in the dough and sends »

Next year’s full of potentially great films, so to help, here’s a list of 25 movies we're most looking forward to in 2014...
These lists of anticipated forthcoming movies have become an annual fixture by now, and as ever, our selection has been tricky to whittle down. In restricting our list to just 25, we've tried to create a mix of the high-profile and the less obvious. Movies such as Non-Stop, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Big Hero Six and Edge Of Tomorrow came close but didn't quite make the cut, even though they have much to offer for their own reasons.
Furthermore, given the number of films competing for space, we've left the latest chapters of The Hunger Games and The Hobbit off the list. We're keen to see both, but we're wary of taking up slots with movies »

The 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, aired on Sunday evening and now we have the list of winners (in red) and nominees from the event. Check it out below and let us know if you agree with the results. "Breaking Bad" took home the award in the best drama series, beating such shows as "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "Homeland," House of Cards" and "Mad Men." But the biggest surprise of the evening was that "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston didn't win for best actor in a drama series. That award went to Jeff Daniels for "The Newsroom." Claire Danes won for best actress in a drama series for her work on "Homeland." The actress won the same award last year. And this year marks the first time a show not airing on television has received nominations. That show is "House of Cards," which is exclusive to Netflix. »

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul were upset in their respective acting categories, but Breaking Bad won the night’s top prize, taking home its first Emmy for Best Drama. It was an unpredictable night in several major categories: In addition to The Newsroom’s Jeff Daniels taking home the trophy for Best Actor in a Drama and Boardwalk Empire’s Bobby Cannavale winning for Supporting Actor, Veep’s Tony Hale and Nurse Jackie’s Merritt Wever were surprise winners — Wever was so shocked that she practically ran off the stage without delivering an acceptance speech.
Not every category yielded a stunner, »

By Sunday evening, we’ll know who has won at this year’s Emmys, putting a merciful end to all the guessing and prognostication. But here are some thoughts regarding who should win.
Choosing who deserves an Emmy is, of course, a tad more complicated than other award shows. Music and theater get to start with a clean slate every year, while only TV rolls out the same faces and shows again and again, which brings career-achievement and past-due-account considerations into the process.
Moreover, not all categories are created equal. Some overflow with worthy, can’t-go-wrong contenders; others have candidates all flawed in one way or another.
Practically speaking, it’s nice to see the voters spread the wealth, which has a way of encouraging networks to keep mounting prestigious shows, hoping the effort will pay off in a smidgeon of the glory so ostentatiously showered on HBO through the years. »

Just a generation ago it would have been unimaginable, but the fact of the matter is this: since the arrival of premium cable and the rise of HBO about 30 years ago, television has provided quality entertainment on a more consistent basis than movies. This has never been more true than it is today, with the movies dominated by mindless remakes, sequels and adaptations, while TV offers the likes of not only HBO but also AMC, Showtime and now even streaming alternatives like Netflix, all of which proudly air original and edgy content of the sort that one used to find at the cineplex before the studios were swallowed by profit-obsessed conglomerates. Now, not only viewers look at TV differently — but so, too, do talent.
In years past, film actors looked down on TV actors, feeling that they were working in a lesser medium. They were, »

Chicago – The 65th Annual Emmy Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will unfold on Sunday night and I’m back for that annual game of guess the winners. More than any other show, the Emmys seemed designed to make those of us who try to figure them out feel stupid.
Sure, there are a few very safe bets but there are some categories that just make you want to throw your hands up (or throw a dart at a board). Here are my best guesses along with what should win and what should have been nominated. Don’t bet the farm on any of it.

I feel pretty confident about this one since AMC and the team behind “Breaking Bad” were brilliant to air the current, incredible, highly-buzzed season during the voting window for last year. Picture the Academy voter with a ballot in his hand, »

Like Jessica Lange last year, Sarah Paulson ("American Horror Story: Asylum") seems to be almost a slam dunk to take home this year's Emmy for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actress. She is currently favored by nine of our 12 experts, all seven of our editors, and 78% of users. That puts her far out front with overall odds of 1/4. The remaining nominees have limited support. Her closest competitor is Ellen Burstyn for "Political Animals." She has the backing of two experts, getting 15/2 odds overall. Emmy darling Alfre Woodard follows for "Steel Magnolias"; she is predicted by one expert and gets 16/1 odds. Rounding out the category are Charlotte Rampling for "Restless" (50/1) and Imelda Staunton for "The Girl" (100/1). Here's a closer look at each of the nominees. -Break- Ellen Burstyn, "Political Animals" Burstyn is nominated for playing Margaret Barrish Worthington, m »
