Until last week, I thought Saoirse Ronan's name was pronounced "Swar-reese Ronan," to the point that, when I would mention to anyone that I was in the process of creating this article, I would say with a vaguely subtle air of sanctimony, "It's Hollywood's unpronounceable names — like that girl from 'The Lovely Bones,' Swar-reese Ronan."
Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem. How to choose?
We here at NextMovie were scratching our heads on this one, so we figured we'd bring the conversation to you. Welcome to "Eff, Marry, Kill: 'Skyfall' Edition."
This game goes exactly how you think it does — we want you to determine which actor you'd like to spend the rest of your days with, whose days you'd like to end for good and which one you'd enjoy (or suffer through, as the case may be) spending one single night with.
Because such decisions are so difficult, we've asked a few of our buds to weigh in. Hit the poll below and hear thoughts from our experts underneath. And don't forget to give us your thoughts in the comments! Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• James Franco continues to provide evidence that he lives in a world where there are more than 24 hours in a day. According to Deadline, the crazy busy thespian has added "The Grace That Keeps This World" to his insane schedule, a family drama co-starring Brit Marling and Glenn Close that follows a father and his sons as they prepare for the upcoming hunting season.
• Michelle Williams, whom we haven't seen on the big screen since "My Week With Marilyn," is in talks to star in "Suite Francaise" for English director Saul Dibb ("The Duchess"). Williams would be playing, according to Variety, "a spirited young woman in occupied France who falls for a German officer and must choose between love and her country." She'll probably find a way to choose both.
• The con is on with Ben Affleck! Deadline reports that the "Argo" man is in talks to star in "Focus," the tale of a grifter who falls in love with a female up-and-comer — a recipe for heartbreak when one's in the business of cheating and lying. Get More »
Our seven years at Hogwarts are long over and done with, and we're seriously missing our favorite wizards and witches. Sure, the books and movies will always be there, but it's just not the same as having new installments to look forward to, is it? Where's the thrill now that Voldemort is gone and the Boy Who Lived, well, lived? Where are we supposed to get our magical fix now?
Luckily, the actors and actresses behind the wands and invisibility cloaks are still going strong, and we can have fun watching them on screens big and small. We saw Daniel Radcliffe drag us back into the world of the eerie in "The Woman in Black" earlier this year and now Draco Malfoy Tom Felton is getting his creep on with "The Apparition."
In their honor, we've decided to check in on all the Gryffindors, Slytherins, Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs to see just what they're up to, post-Potter. Get More »
Summer's over — it's time to add a little literature to your cinema.
Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations" is a story that's been adapted to film many times over, but luckily it's always a story worth telling. And this new adaptation by director Mike Newell looks to be one of the best ones yet. Get More »
This week: Sam Worthington plays a prison escapee who orchestrates an intricate heist while clinging to the outside of a tall building in the appropriately titled action thriller "Man on a Ledge."
They may be brothers and sisters in real life, but in the acting world, sibling actors are often fierce competitors. Sometimes they're even up for the same roles.
You could call these cases of sibling rivalry being played out on the big screen a real family affair, along the lines of "Mom always liked you best."
We've come up with a list of top actors who have competing brothers or sisters. Vote on your favorites of each brother-brother, brother-sister or sister-sister pairing -- and may the best siblings win. Get More »
Daniel Craig finally returns for his third go-round as 007 in "Skyfall," the 23rd official James Bond movie and the first since 2008's "Quantum of Solace."
Craig reunites with his "Road to Perdition" director Sam Mendes for this latest round of spy games in which the past comes back to haunt Bond's superior, M (Judi Dench), testing the agent's loyalty to his boss and putting him on yet another deadly assignment. We're sure he'll also either threaten to quit or go rogue at some point and will most definitely sleep with at least one of the following Bond Girls: Berenice Marlohe, Naomie Harris and Tonia Sotiropoulou.
"Skyfall" doesn't open until Nov. 9, but you can check out all of the photos from the movie released so far right here, right now, on display in our shaken and stirred gallery.
For centuries now, Chicken Little has been predicting the imminent collapse of the sky -- and this fall, that prediction finally comes true. But don't worry, because when "Skyfall" arrives in theaters this November, humanity is in safe hands thanks to the presence of 007 himself, James Bond.
Check out our ultimate guide to Everything We Know About "Skyfall" So Far. And get ready, because this is one story that may not have a fairy tale ending. Get More »
It’s been a couple years since they battled on screen in what became a huge blockbuster, 2010's "Clash of the Titans." Now, real-life friends Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes are reprising their roles as Greek gods in "Wrath of the Titans." Neeson plays Zeus, king of the gods; Fiennes is Hades, his brother and god of the underworld.
These two acting giants first matched wits (and handsomeness) in "Schindler’s List," which scored them a ream of awards nominations and established both as leading men to be reckoned with.
Both were born citizens of the British Empire. Each has taken a different path in film stardom of late, with Neeson known for his recent man-on-a-mission roles and Fiennes renowned for his villainous turn as Lord Voldemort in the "Harry Potter" series.
You might think the 6'4" Neeson would come out on top in a matchup with the 6-foot Fiennes. But you might be surprised. Get More »
