"Here's where you make out with my wife."
If you've ever said that, you're either recreationally into that sort of thing (and we here at NextMovie hold no judgment) or you're a Hollywood director married to an actress in the movie you're directing. Get More »
"Master and Commander" star Russell Crowe isn't so good at sea after all.
The Oscar-winning thesp managed to lose his way kayaking in the wild waters off New York's Long Island over the holiday weekend and had to be picked up by a U.S. Coast Guard boat. Oops. Get More »
Emma Watson is seeking shelter from the storm.
The "Harry Potter" star is preparing for a flood of Biblical proportions as she's in talks to board "Noah," according to Deadline.
Emma would be playing the role of Ila, a young woman who develops a close relationship with Noah's son, Shem (Douglas Booth). If Emma accepts the role, she'll be reuniting with her "Perks of Being a Wallflower" co-star, Logan Lerman, who's playing Noah's older son, Ham. Get More »
Darren Aronofsky is going from one crazed ballerina in "Black Swan" to one (arguably) crazed boat-builder in his upcoming drama, "Noah."
And now that the writer/director has Russell Crowe locked down as the titular handyman, he's busy casting two other main roles: Noah's sons. Word has it that English heartthrob Douglas Booth is lined up to play Noah's younger boy, Shem, and Logan Lerman will take on the role of the older son, Ham.
There's still no definitive word on which actress might play Noah's wife (who may or may not support his somewhat radical survival plan), though there are rumblings of Aronofsky's "Requiem For a Dream" star Jennifer Connelly as a possibility, Deadline reports. She starred opposite Crowe in "A Beautiful Mind" back in 2001, so she's got some experience as his better half. Get More »
Saoirse Ronan and Jennifer Connelly have hopped aboard the cast of Darren Aronofsky's upcoming biblical epic "Noah," Paramount confirmed yesterday per indieWire.
Looks like they're going to need a bigger boat.
"Noah," of course, is Aronofsky's long-delayed, long-rumored take on the familiar tale of the biblical figure who built a giant ship to escape the watery destruction of the world at the hands of an angry deity. And as we reported earlier in the week, Russell Crowe is on board as the titular character.
That makes "Noah" a reunion of sorts between Crowe and Connelly, who previously starred together in 2001's "A Beautiful Mind," a collaboration that earned Connelly an Oscar for Best Actress and Crowe his third Oscar nomination for Best Actor. Get More »
UPDATE: Russell Crowe officially will be taking on the role of Noah in Darren Aronofsky's "Noah," a "close adaptation" of the story from the Book of Genesis according to a press release.
"I rejoice that Russell Crowe will be by my side on this adventure," Aronofsky said in a statement. "It's his immense talent that helps me to sleep at night. I look forward to being wowed by him every day."
Neeson's casting remains unconfirmed.
Puppets have a long and proud history in the world of entertainment, but the brand new puppet-show version of the classic Darren Aronofsky anti-drug film "Requiem for a Dream?"
Well, let's just say you won't be seeing this one on "Sesame Street" any time soon. Because these puppets are definitely brought to you by the letter H. Get More »
This is your brain on crystal meth, and it's no fried egg.
"Black Swan" auteur Darren Aronofsky may not have a new movie out this holiday season, but he's managed to orchestrate his own Christmas Methtacular over the course of four new TV spots created for The Meth Project, a public service program aimed at preventing first-time users.
These visceral ads do NOT beat around the bush, featuring lesion-covered addicts brutalizing family members, having sex for money, attempting suicide, and going loony tunes in a mental hospital. Get More »
How do we love thee, "Black Swan?" Let us count the ways.
First, you are probably the only movie that could convince two of America's biggest mainstream sex symbols to get that kind of raunchy in the name of art. We love you for your twisted plot, the Portman child whose conception you are in some way responsible for, and last, but not least, the seemingly endless number of jerks coming out of the woodwork saying they had a hand in making you.
Following the filing of a lawsuit by two interns who claim Fox violated wage laws by employing unpaid staffers, the studio has responded with what may be their biggest twist ending: the interns never worked there at all. (Cue spooky "Swan Lake" music). Get More »
No, making coffee and taking out the trash don't necessarily qualify as "educational" activities.
Apparently unpaid interns are no longer willing to do the often agonizing tasks that unpaid interns are usually called upon to do, as two of them are suing the producers of "Black Swan" for their tedious intern experience whilst working on the Oscar-winning hit, according to The New York Times.
