Lars von Trier, the notoriously outspoken filmmaker who got himself temporarily banned from the Cannes Film Festival for comments he made about Nazis (oh Lars!), has a two-part sex epic coming out later this year called "Nymphomaniac." In a press release, er, released this morning (which clearly isn't connected to Cannes going on right now), it was announced that the two films would premiere in Copenhagen in December, along with the first official photo of the films' cast. Thankfully they aren't involved in some huge gang bang, but rather posed artfully, like a super perverse Gap ad. Get More »
With the MTV Video Music Awards hitting MTV tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, we've compiled a list of the 50 best based on a number of factors: creativity of video, quality of actor's performance and, for some, random dancing ability. Our only caveats: no cameos and no soundtracks. The debate begins now. Get More »
Michael Fassbender's riding into the sunset, Evan Rachel Wood is hitting the road and Jamie Bell is gettin' busy in this week's casting news.
Fassbender may soon be studying to be a quick draw as he's in talks to join the western, "Jane Got a Gun," according to Vulture. Natalie Portman is currently attached to the film about a woman who hires an ex-lover (Fassbender) to protect her ranch after her outlaw husband returns home bullet-ridden and with former criminal colleagues hot on his heels. Lynne Ramsay ("We Need to Talk About Kevin") is attached to direct.
Valentine's Day is upon us, love is in the air, and we are so on it.
Oh, we don't mean candlelit dinners and flower deliveries -- we mean romantic movies, in which every meet-cute and heartbreak has a soundtrack; and hot, sensitive characters say "I love you" better than your significant other ever will.
You know who loves romantic movies, too? Celebrities. From Channing Tatum to Christina Hendricks, these 20 famous folks name their favorites and give us some pretty good ideas for what we might be watching (again) this Valentine's Day.
We don't want to go out on a limb here, but "Man On A Ledge" could be the most white-knuckle suspense film of the new year.
Sam "Avatar" Worthington might need his wheelchair again if he falls off a New York City high-rise he's climbed in order to, get this, distract the cops while his brother pulls a diamond heist to clear his name. Hollywood, you're a genius. Jamie Bell costars as the brother, while the always lovely Elizabeth Banks tries to convince Sam that life is Worthington living. Get More »
Are "Billy Elliot" and the girl from "Thirteen" old enough to get married?
Indeed they are, according to Us Weekly.
Jamie Bell, now 25, recently proposed to Evan Rachel Wood, 24, after being seen shopping for engagement rings in late December.
This is actually Chapter Two of the couple's relationship — they dated for a year or so back in 2005 (they're pictured here at the "King Kong" premiere) and got back together last summer. Wood was previously engaged to shock rocker Marilyn Manson but called it off in 2010. Get More »
'Tis the season ... for holiday movies! When the weather outside is frightful, there's nothing quite like snuggling up on your couch to watch a holiday classic (or two, or three, depending on just how cold it is outside).
Celebrities are no different -- they like having their heartstrings tugged, too. We asked 18 actors, writers, directors and personalities what their favorite holiday movies are; and though you'll see some familiar titles on this list, you may spot a few surprises, too.
Who is Tintin? He's a world-class reporter, a weirdly ageless bachelor whose only friend is a dog, and an action hero who knows how to evade gunfire like it's his job.
Jamie Bell danced his way onto the scene in the 1999 smash "Billy Elliot," but now he's traded in his ballet shoes for a fluffy dog named Snowy and a pistol in "The Adventures of Tintin." Playing the iconic title character for director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson involved stepping into the world of performance capture animation pioneered in "The Polar Express" and recently perfected for "Avatar."
Mr. Bell sat down with us to talk about his love of Hergé's 80-year-old comic book creation, working once again with his "King Kong" brother-in-arms Andy Serkis, and what downtime is like when you're acting in a suit covered in sensor balls. Get More »
Steven Spielberg first discovered the "Tintin" comics right after "Raiders of the Lost Ark" came out and reviewers compared his Indiana Jones to Hergé's classic creation. Ever since, the master director has wanted to bring the intrepid reporter, his faithful dog Snowy, and all the other characters to the screen -- and now he's done so with gusto.
"The Adventures of Tintin" follows our adventure-loving hero as he pieces together the clues to sunken treasure, meets his new friend Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) and foils a dastardly villain bent on revenge. Not only is the spirit of adventure catching, but you'll see three or four of the most incredible action sequences ever put to celluloid. Dr. Jones got nothin' on Tintin. Get More »
Who is this guy and why does he want to plummet hundreds of feet to his death?
The answers are many and none appear to be easy in "Man on a Ledge," a crime thriller about an ex-con (Sam Worthington) who causes quite an incident from the top of a New York City hotel as a police psychologist (Elizabeth Banks) tries to talk him down. Get More »
