New Promo For #LADYBIRD

American Hustle Character Posters

We’ve known since the first pictures and the trailer emerged that David O. Russell’s American Hustle features some truly shocking vintage getup. Now here are some character posters to give you a better look at the characters and their hair. Guard your eyes!


Yes, Russell has somehow convinced Silver Linings Playbook stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, along with The Fighter’sAmy Adams and Christian Bale and new recruit Jeremy Renner, to don some spectacular 1970s/80s gear for his latest outing.


The film finds Bale as Irving Rosenfeld, a Bronx-raised con man who arouses the suspicions of driven FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Cooper).

Under threat of prison, DiMaso forces Rosenfeld and his lover/accomplice Sydney (Adams) to work up the Abscam sting, which saw a US senator and five congressmen convicted on corruption charges.

The Hobbit Trilogy Has Cost $561 Million So Far

That figure includes the major 266 days of filming with actors, although it doesn't include an additional two months or so of "pick-up" shoots.

Making the movie trilogy The Hobbit has cost more than half a billion dollars so far, double the amount spent on the three movies in the The Lord of the Rings series.

That figure includes the major 266 days of filming with actors that was completed last year, although it doesn't include an additional two months or so of "pick-up" shoots done this year. There will likely also be additional postproduction costs as the next two movies are completed.

Halle Berry Heading To TV

Halle Berry is heading to the small screen.

The Oscar winner has been tapped to star in Steven Spielberg's CBS summer drama Extant and signed a two-year first-look production deal with the series' studio, CBS Television Studio.

The project found itself at the center of a heated bidding war between broadcast networks and cable networks, with CBS ultimately proving triumphant by committing to a 13-episode straight-to-series order. Extant has been billed as a futuristic thriller about a female astronaut (Berry) trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space. The character's experiences lead to events that ultimately change the course of human history. The casting coup of Berry is as much a commentary on the strength of the spec script as it is on the state of the film business, particularly for actresses over 40.

"Halle is the type of award-winning actress you dream of collaborating with for an event project such as Extant," said …

METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER Review

METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER Review By: RAMA

Thanks again to RAMA for coming through with this great review. Make sure to LIKE his Facebook page and follow him on Twitter.


Though I’m not too gung-ho about concert movies, I have seen a few in my lifetime and METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER is the best one thus far. It’s truly electrifying, even those who aren’t big fans of heavy metal of Metallica band in particular can appreciate how visionary this movie is by director Nimrod Antal. I don’t blame those who may consider the post apocalyptic companion plot featuring Dane DeHaan as a bit weird and relenting, but every ghoulish imagery and illustration in this film capture the essence of what Metallica’s music represents, so it’s no surprise to me that funerals, and electric chairs, and master of puppet come to life in a form of stage theatrics and spectacles in METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER.


METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER stars Metallica, one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history. I…

New OUT OF THE FURNACE Trailer

Here is the new trailer for OUT OF THE FURNACE. Directed and co-written by the critically-acclaimed Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart), the film boasts an Academy Award winning and nominated cast featuring Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoë Saldana and Sam Shepard.

Russell Baze (Christian Bale) works a dead-end job at the local steel mill, as his terminally ill father did before him. When Russell’s brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and mysteriously disappears. The police fail to crack the case, so - with nothing left to lose - Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice for his brother. Sometimes your battles choose you.

Runner Runner Review. Here Is Why You Should Just Keep Running

Runner Runner  Review By: MattInRC

Here'e why the Ben Affleck thriller Runner Runner should just keep running.


In Runner Runner, Princeton grad student Richie (Justin Timberlake) has turned a profitable online gambling career into a disaster, losing his life savings during an online swindle. He flies to Costa Rica filled with data from his tech pals at the university to find the site's owner Ivan Block (Ben Affleck), who not only refunds his money, but offers him a job. Soon, Richie is living the high life, analyzing gambling data and wooing clients. But Block's business is a dangerous one, filled with payoffs to a creepy gambling and murder; Richie soon learns that he's part of an elaborate sting operation by the FBI, led by Pain and Gain's Anthony Mackie, who will break any rule to nab Block. As Richie learns that Block plans to pin him for the company's missing profits, he must decide if Block's assistant (Gemma Arterton) is dirty as well, and whether…

Guillermo Del Toro's Horror-Filled Simpsons Opening

Gone are the days when you had to wait until something hit screens to see it. Take, for example, the opening credits to this year’s Treehouse Of Horror episode on The Simpsons. Not content to simply lend his voice or craft a couch gag, Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro has been given free rein to re-imagine the entire opening credits sequence. Cue the horror!

Lurking within the nifty new sequence are references to del Toro’s own output (including Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy) and a load of nods to his favorite horror movies, icons and moments.

“The Simpsons titles are so iconic and yet they’ve never been riffed in this vein. I really wanted to land the connections between the show’s set pieces and the titles and some of the most iconic horror movies, and intersperse them with some of my stuff in there for pure joy,” he tells EW.

“For example the idea that Ms. Krabappel could be outside the school with Alfred Hitchcock, which is a reference to the sequence in The Birds that happe…

Could Saoirse Ronan Star In Star Wars Episode VII?

Saoirse Ronan was utterly charming in her Empire Podcast interview this week, talking about her latest, How I Live Now, as well as her love of Bridesmaids, how to pronounce her name and a little movie called Star Wars Episode VII, which she recently revealed she'd auditioned for.

Below is what she had to say about the experience of going in for J.J. Abrams and co., which may be a touch on the vague side, but does contain a little teasing titbit about lightsabers for any die-hard Star Wars fans to enjoy.

“Yeah, I did [audition for Star Wars Episode VII]… I don’t know whether I should have said that now! I mean, everyone did. Everyone has auditioned for it. So many people I know have gone in for the part I’ve gone in for, and guys who’ve gone in for a particular part, so I’d imagine J.J. is probably just scanning the earth to find the people that ne needs.”
“But nobody has a clue what it’s about, and nobody’s read the script. So I’ve gone in and read for it, but I have to say, I thin…

In WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, a seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage, “Boardwalk Empire”) rules his family with a rigorous fervor, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris (Ambyr Childers, THE MASTER) and Rose (Julia Garner, MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR) are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family. As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.

24: Live Another Day To Be Set In The U.K.

24: Live Another Day,” the limited series followup to Fox’s hit Kiefer Sutherland starrer, will lens across the Pond, the network announced. “Live Another Day” marks the first production of the franchise to shoot abroad since the 2008 TV movie “24: Redemption,” which was filmed outside Cape Town, South Africa.

When fans of the Emmy-winning skein last saw Sutherland’s iconic counter terrorism agent Jack Bauer, he was a fugitive from justice. The limited event series, slated for a summer debut, picks up four years later in the franchise, with Bauer on the fly in the U.K.

Fox announced the return of the Jack Bauer franchise as a 12-seg limited series during the network’s upfront in May. Series will take place over 12 hours, instead of “24′s” original daylong format. Fox chief Kevin Reilly sees potential for further iterations of the “24″ franchise, should the limited series perform well on the net next year.

“24″ concluded its initial series run on Fox in 2010 after eight seasons.

BAD MILO - Join Us Monday, October 7th For A Reddit AMA With Ken Marino!

Join us Monday, October 7th for a Reddit AMA with BAD MILO star Ken Marino!

Duncan's (Ken Marino) life is a real pain in the ass. Tormented by a manipulative, crooked boss (Patrick Warburton), a nagging mother (Mary Kay Place), a deadbeat new age dad (Stephen Root), and a sweet, yet pressuring, wife (Gillian Jacobs), his mounting stress starts to trigger an insufferable gastrointestinal reaction.

Out of ideas and at the end of his rope, Duncan seeks the help of a hypnotherapist (Peter Stormare), who helps him discover the root of his unusual stomach pain: a pintsized demon living in his intestine that, triggered by excessive anxiety, forces its way out and slaughters the people who have angered him. Out of fear that his intestinal gremlin may target its wrath on the wrong person, Duncan attempts to befriend it, naming it Milo and indulging it to keep its seemingly insatiable appetite at bay.

Gravity Review. The Film Is An Absolute Thrillride

Gravity Review By: MattInRC
The gripping Gravity proves space is the final and most dangerous frontier.

 WARNING: major spoilers ahead.

The beauty and thrill of discovery involved in space travel is matched only by its inherent potential for dramatic loss of life, as evidenced by the tragedies of Challenger and Columbia. Director Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity takes us through just such a disaster, creating both a thrilling and cautionary tale that will either inspire or make you nervous each time you fly.


Astronauts Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and Matt Kowalski (George Clooney) are busy space-walking around the Space Shuttle Explorer when the ship is struck and destroyed by a dead Russian spy satellite. Their only hope is to make it to the International Space Station, which Stone finds has been abandoned, with its only functioning escape craft damaged. As secrets are revealed about the duo, one must make the ultimate sacrifice so that the other may live, paving the way for a gripping …
