Move over, Blake Lively. There's a new Gt girl in town. The buzz around Hollywood is that "Dragon Tattoo" star Rooney Mara (who just nabbed herself an Oscar nod, btw) has signed on to play the lead in Steven Soderbergh's latest, "Side Effects," a role that was previously earmarked for Lively.

The thriller, which was previously known as "Bitter Pill," is set in the world of psychotherapy. We're scared already. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story follows a troubled and depressed young woman (Mara) who is coping with the imminent release of her husband from jail and begins to take a new prescription drug to… er… help ease her nerves—only, it turns out to have unforeseen consequences. Dun dun dun. Get More »

Yesterday, Jennifer Lawrence took the podium – tough Katniss on The Capitol interview stage-style - to perform the 2012 Academy Award nominations reading, but that's just a drop in the bucket when it comes to "The Hunger Games" Oscar connections.

In fact, between the cast and filmmakers, we counted more than two dozen Oscar nominations and quite a few wins. Who knew these gamekeepers, so to speak, were so accomplished?!

This list should tell you just what caliber of talent is involved in "The Hunger Games," both on and off-screen. Get More »

Film Is Dead in Keanu Reeves' 'Side by Side' Trailer

Side by Side
Company Films

Will actual film -- you know, the 35mm kind of stuff -- be little more than a novelty by 2015?

That's what they say, which means digital filmmaking may be poised to become the norm in Hollywood, a transition that's already spurning much debate and discussion (not to mention lamentation). Does digital take the "art" out of filmmaking? Is digital making it impossible to discern the real deal from the amateur shooting in his backyard?

In an already narrow playing field of female actors who play characters as tough as their male counterparts, Gina Carano is just about the only one who’s tougher than most of them. In Steven Soderbergh's new film "Haywire," the former mixed martial arts star not only holds her own against the acting talents of Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor and Antonio Banderas (among others), but she also convincingly beats them all to a bloody pulp.

Carano plays Mallory Kane, a freelance operative who must fight her way to freedom after she’s betrayed by the people who hired her. Conversely, Carano indicated that the experience of shooting her first film was a great collaborative experience. She recently explained to us how her previous career has helped guide her through a whole new one. Get More »
