Amal Clooney Recycles Gold Dress From The Monuments Men Premiere for Post-Wedding Festivities—Check it Out!

27 October 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

There's no doubt that Amal Clooney is a fledging fashion icon in her own right, but that doesn't mean she can't take a few pointers from the Kate Middleton playbook. This time, the new Mrs. Clooney embraced the Duchess' recycle-friendly stance by whipping out an old golden dress to a post-wedding bash at the luxury Danesfield House Hotel in Buckinghamshire, UK over the weekend. And while it's hard to see the glamourous gown in its entirety, what's perfectly clear is that Amal looks like absolute Hollywood royalty with a tousled blowout and crimson pout. As for the first time the human rights lawyer donned the gown? That was at the The Monuments Men London premiere back in February. We »

Alexandre Desplat Proves a Perennial Fave at Gent’s World Soundtrack Awards

27 October 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the Mc at Saturday night’s 14th annual World Soundtrack Awards — the culmination of Film Fest Gent — announced, “this should be called the Alexandre Desplat Awards,” after the French maestro was named as winner of both composer of the year and creator of the year’s best original film score (“Grand Budapest Hotel”).

Desplat, with his 13 nominations and six wins since 2007, is apparently a clear favorite of the Wsa committee that decides on such affairs, despite facing such stiff competition from Steven Price, who won the Oscar for “Gravity,” and Hans Zimmer (“12 Years a Slave”), who, along with his then-publicist, the late Ronni Chasen, helped bring worldwide recognition to Gent as a showcase for film music.

The composer of the year award recognizes a talent’s body of work for the previous year, and the ever-prolific Desplat was recognized for no less than seven films, including “Budapest,” “Philomena,” “The Monuments Men »

Bill Murray Should Hire an Agent Already

27 October 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

"Did you know that Bill Murray doesn't have an agent? He just has an 800 number and answering machine." I remember exactly where I was when I heard about how Murray manages his career, just like some people remember when they first heard about Keith Richards snorting his dead dad's ashes. It's one of the best pieces of Bill Murray folklore, right up there with how he's always crashing house parties. But it hasn't helped his work much. Just look at his recent filmography. If you forget about his work with Wes Anderson and flukes like Get Low and Zombieland, it's been a pretty dire stretch since 2005's Broken Flowers — The Lost City, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties, City of Ember, The Limits of Control, Passion Play, Hyde Park on the Hudson, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan IIIThe Monuments Men, and his latest, the treacly dramedy St. Vincent, »

Box Office Report: Ouija Scares Up $20 Million To Take #1

26 October 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Producer Jason Blum continues to be one of the biggest, most profitable names in horror, as his latest spook-fest, the low-budget thriller Ouija, debuted in the top spot in the weekend before Halloween. (Any other month of the year, and it may not have scared up the same amount of business.) With an estimated $20 million take, the title debuted in the middle of the horror-movie range. It beat out past scary, non-sequel October titles like Carrie ($16.1 million) and Sinister ($18 million), but was at about half the rate of anticipated franchise names like Annabelle ($37.1 million) and Paranormal Activity 2 ($40.7 million).

With a no-name cast and miserable reviews, Ouija relied entirely on its late October release date and heavy marketing (especially with its trailer attached to this month’s horror hit, Annabelle) to draw in curious moviegoers. Critics hated the film and audiences have not been kind to it either, giving Ouija a C CinemaScore. »

Weekend Report: 'Fury' Topples 'Gone Girl,' 'Birdman' Soars in Limited Release

19 October 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Brad Pitt's Fury was able to usurp first place from Gone Girl this weekend, though it was a closer race than anticipated.Meanwhile, Birdman opened at four locations in New York and Los Angeles and scored one of the best per-theater averages ever for a live-action movie.Opening at 3,173 theaters, Fury rolled in to first place this weekend with $23.7 million. This debut is in the same general ballpark as movies like Captain Phillips ($25.7 million), Act of Valor ($24.5 million) and The Monuments Men ($22 million). That's a fine range to be in, though it's a bit disappointing considering how far off it is from recent R-rated thrillers Gone Girl ($37.5 million) and The Equalizer ($34.1 million).Sony's marketing played up Fury's intense tank-on-tank action, which made it a strong option among male moviegoers. Unfortunately, the movie never really connected with women, who wound up accounting for just 40 percent of the audience on opening weekend. »

Box Office Report: Fury Rolls Past Gone Girl For #1 Spot

19 October 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was the fourth straight weekend where an R-rated drama took the box office crown, as the World War II thriller Fury earned an estimated $23.5 million. This marked a solid opening for star Brad Pitt and was slightly higher than similar star-studded war titles The Monuments Men ($22 million) and Valkyrie ($21 million over the weekend, after a Thursday Christmas Day opening). As for Pitt, it was a better debut than Moneyball ($19.5 million); however, it was noticeably behind the opening of another war film starring the actor as the leader of a group of soldiers, Inglourious Basterds ($38 million).

Moving forward, Fury is likely to continue bringing in good money. There is little competition for adults in the coming weeks, with the exception of expanding independent titles like Birdman and St. Vincent, and the A- CinemaScore means audiences are liking what they see. The film saw only a 3% jump from Friday to Saturday, »

Friday Report: 'Fury' Rolls in to First Place on Friday

18 October 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

On a somewhat quiet day at the box office, Brad Pitt's Fury easily took first place with $8.8 million.That debut is a bit higher than last October's Captain Phillips ($8.5 million), and also noticeably better than The Monuments Men ($6.9 million). Still, it's way off from recent R-rated hits The Equalizer ($12.5 million) and Gone Girl ($13.2 million). For the weekend, Fury is on track to earn $24 to $27 million.Entering its third weekend, Gone Girl eased 32 percent to an estimated $5.55 million. To date, the movie has earned $94.8 million, and will pass $100 million sometime today. For the weekend, Gone Girl will likely earn over $18 million.The Book of Life opened in third place with $4.95 million. That's identical to The Boxtrolls ($4.93 million), and is a bit higher than Reel FX's first feature-length movie (last November's Free Birds, which opened to $3.9 million). For the weekend, The Book of Life should end up between $17 and $18 million.Playing at 2,936 theaters, »

Brad Pitt's Bloody ‘Fury’ Taking No Prisoners at Box Office

18 October 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Brad Pitt‘s bloody “Fury” blasted its way to an $8.8 million Friday that put it on pace for $25 million opening weekend triumph at the box office. Sony's R-rated saga about a tank crew behind Nazi lines in World War II will end the two-week run at No. 1 of “Gone Girl.” The debut by the David Ayer-directed “Fury” will top the $22 million February opening of George Clooney‘s “The Monuments Men,” but fall well short of the $38 million that another Pitt war drama, “Inglourious Basterds,” opened to in 2009. The audience for “Fury” included more women than might be »

Digital Tracking: ‘Fury’ to Blast Away Box Office Competition with $32 Million

17 October 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? Moviepilot – which studies social data and box office trends – analyzes this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is laid out in the appendix below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.

Moviepilot Prediction: $32 million

Fury” rolls into theaters this weekend armed with the mega star power of Brad Pitt, solid reviews and good social stats. The first of three World War II movies opening this season (the others being Angelina Jolie’s “Unbroken” and “The Imitation Game”), all with significant Oscar buzz surrounding them, “Fury” looks by far the most action heavy. Sony cleverly played this up in the social campaign by appealing to tank »

Forecast: 'Fury' to Invade Top Spot This Weekend

16 October 2014 5:48 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

World War II tank movie Fury will almost certainly take the top spot away from two-time winner Gone Girl this weekend. Meanwhile, The Book of Life and The Best of Me are also opening nationwide.Playing at 3,173 theaters, Fury stars Brad Pitt as the leader of an American tank crew making their way through Germany as the second World War draws to a close.With the exception of 2012's Killing Them Softly*which was an odd, dark crime drama*Pitt has been on a strong run lately as a leading man. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Inglourious Basterds and World War Z all earned over $120 million at the domestic box office, while Moneyball was one of the highest-grossing baseball movies ever with $75.6 million.World War II movies have a mixed track record, though the last few installments have done fairly well. Outside of Pitt's Basterds, the best comparison for »

Forecast (cont.): 'The Best of Me,' 'Men, Women & Children,' 'Birdman'

16 October 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

<< Continued from "Weekend Forecast"Opening at 2,936 theaters, The Best of Me is the ninth Nicholas Sparks adaptation to hit the big screen. Sparks adaptations have been fairly consistent*the last four movies opened between $16 million and $30.5 million. However, the highest-grossing entry remains 2004's The Notebook, which ended its run with just north of $81 million.The Best of Me seems to fit nicely in to the Sparks playbook. It's a romance (of course), and posters feature essentially the same image (two lovers touching faces) as virtually every other Sparks movie poster.There's reason to believe that The Best of Me may fall a bit short of the standard Sparks range, though. James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan are respected actors, but don't necessarily fit in to the genre as naturally as Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough (of last year's Safe Haven). Also, the movie's split timeline has been hard to pin down »

10 Great Lesser-Seen World War Two Movies

16 October 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This week sees Brad Pitt donning his WWII uniform for the first time since the Oscar-nominated "Inglourious Basterds" in David Ayer's "Fury" (read our review here, and our interview with Ayer here) in which he, alongside Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal, crew a Sherman tank as it pushes into Nazi Germany in the dying days of the Second World War. The Second World War remains an eternally popular subject for the movies 75 years on from the beginning of the conflict: even aside from "Fury," this year alone, films like "The Monuments Men," "Unbroken," "Phoenix" and "The Imitation Game" have opened, with plenty more surely to come. But the genre's enduring popularity means that it's easy for films as such produced in the last three-quarters of a century to slip between the cracks. It's unlikely to happen to "Fury," given its A-list stars and huge marketing push, »

Bill Murray on ‘St. Vincent,’ Fame and the ‘Virus’ of Oscars Season

14 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For Bill Murray, the idea of attending Bill Murray Day sounded like punishment. So at last month’s Toronto Film Festival, the comedian was having serious trepidation about the special day designated to showing his classic films “Ghostbusters,” “Stripes” and “Groundhog Day,” followed by the premiere of his latest comedy, “St. Vincent.” The celebration unfolded like a cross between Comic-Con and a political rally, with an army of fans in Bill Murray masks marching en route to the screenings.

“The whole thing gets more complicated as it draws closer, and you feel such dread about it,” Murray says in an interview at his hotel before the hoopla begins. “I’m nervous. All I can think is I feel like the Statue of Liberty covered with maggots. I feel like I am going to be assaulted! Why am I doing this?”

Hugh Bonneville on George Clooney's Downton Abbey role: 'It made our year'

13 October 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Hugh Bonneville has described George Clooney's appearance in a Downton Abbey sketch as "brilliant".

Hollywood star Clooney is to feature in a comedy skit of the ITV drama as part of the channel's Text Santa telethon event in December.

Bonneville revealed that he helped secure Clooney's services after they starred alongside each other in The Monuments Men.

"I was asked if I could help," Bonneville told Huffington Post UK. "It was a long, long, long shot, but he had an afternoon free when he was in London, so he came to play.

"It made our year. It was brilliant."

Bonneville - who plays Lord Robert Crawley in the drama - said that he had known about the secret casting for some time.

"We were hoping to keep it that way until right up to transmission, but such is the quality of the rumour mill these days," he said.

Single? So is Bill Murray.

You read that right, ladies and gentlemen: The Internet's favorite person is romantically unattached. On Howard Stern's Sirius Xm radio show Wednesday, the shock jock asked the actor point-blank: "Is there something you question in your own life on why you haven't found that great love of your life?"

The Monuments Men star, 64, replied candidly, saying, "I do think about that...I'm not sure what I'm getting done here. I have kids that I'm responsible for. I don't think I'm lonely...There's a lot that I need to do that I'm not doing. We're kind of ugly if we look really hard."

Murray, who has six children from two ex-wives, clarified to Howard. "I don't think I'm lonely."
