Emily Brontë's classic 1847 novel "Wuthering Heights" has been adapted for the movies almost too many times to count, so film fans can be forgiven for wondering if there's really anything new that can be done with the story.
But if you're one of those folks, then wonder no more, because we've got a new trailer here for an adaptation that brings the tragic romance to new "Heights." Get More »
Jessica Biel is more than just a pretty face... maybe.
Though the brunette beauty has leapt from TV to the silver screen, she still hasn't quite proven she's got the dramatic chops to hang in the big leagues. But that might be about to change, because Biel is currently in talks for a leading role in the upcoming thriller, "Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes," Variety reports. Get More »
Thought mid-19th century gothic novels couldn't get any sexier? Andrea Arnold is here to prove you wrong.
The British director, who won an Academy Award for her 2004 short "Wasp," brings her magic back to the big screen with her update on Emily Bronte's classic "Wuthering Heights."
The film premiered earlier this month to rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival, where it took home the Golden Osella award for best cinematography. For those of us whose tickets to the festival got lost in the mail, the wait to see what all the fuss about is over, thanks to the film's teaser trailer, posted on Indie Wire. Get More »
After being named 2009's "Summer's Must Bad Girl" by Entertainment Weekly for her portrayal of promiscuous party girl Effy Stonem on the U.K. drama "Skins," Kaya Scoldelario has become one hot commodity.
We named her one of the top 15 up-and-coming British imports, and she was one of the leading contenders for Katniss in "The Hunger Games," an accomplishment considering that list was about 8 million girls long.
Now, according to The Playlist, the 19-year-old Brit is up for some more racy fun in Ol Parker's new indie film "Now is Good." She'll likely play Zoey, the wild best friend of Dakota Fanning's character. Fanning, hopefully with a very convincing British accent, plays a young girl who wants to get her cherry popped before she dies of leukemia, and falls for a young man played by Jeremy Irvine ("War Horse").

Competition for the lead role in Gary Ross' dystopian nightmare "Hunger Games" is fierce, with nearly every big-name actress under 25 throwing her hat in the ring -- we've heard conflicting reports that Oscar nominees Jennifer Lawrence and Hailee Steinfeld, "Little Miss Sunshine" Abigail Breslin and Chloe "Hit-Girl" Moretz are each the current favorite for the part of Katniss Everdeen.
While Lionsgate tells Entertainment Weekly that, despite all the buzz, "there are no frontrunners at this point," we're nearly out of time to make our own suggestions. With "Breaking Dawn" casting director Debra Zane hard at work and a release date only a year away, an official Katniss must be coming in short order, so we've got to make our casting wishlist while the wishing's still good.
May the odds be ever in our favor. Get More »
As of next year, three of America's most famous superheroes will be played by Brits: Superman (Henry Cavill), Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield), and Batman (Christian Bale). No, we're not going to protest out of some misguided jingoism (although we will point out the horror with which our friends across the Atlantic responded to Renee Zellweger playing Bridget Jones once upon a time).
We don't know if it's the popularity of rigorous youth drama programs or what, but the British are invading Hollywood at a rate that rivals the arrival of the Aussies in the late '90s. Looking at the more established young slate of English talent (Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, the Harry Potter trifecta, and Robert Pattinson to name a few), we say welcome to the next gen of Bright Young Brits.
