    Amanda Seyfried Auditioned For A Role In 'Superman' But Didn't Get The Job

    Lost Out On Lead Role In 'Sucker Punch' Due To Clash With 'Big Love' ScheduleThink back to the heady days of 2004, when you first saw Tina Fey's minor classic of the teen movie genre, "Mean Girls." You, like the rest of us, probably thought that the biggest star to graduate from that film would be its lead, Lindsay Lohan, who gave an endearing, goofy performance that suggested a long career was ahead of her. Instead, a whole bunch of drugs intervened, and Lohan is basically now unemployable, leaving her co-stars to lap her in the stardom stakes. Well, not Lacey Chabert so much, but both Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried have become some of t...

    Julianne Moore Gets Villainous Opposite Jeff Bridges In 'The Seventh Son'

    Alex Pettyfer Out Of Project Formerly Known As 'The Last Apprentice'Her co-star Annette Bening may have picked up the lion's share of the awards nominations, after the decision was made to push both actresses for lead, rather than supporting, but Julianne Moore really was excellent in "The Kids Are All Right," one of the very best performances in a career that isn't exactly starving for great turns. Not that Moore's resting on her laurels; she's averaged three films a year for the last decade, and she's got the Steve Carell/Ryan Gosling comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" on the way later this year, along with the Robert De Niro drama "Another Bulls...

    'The Hobbit' Begins Its 14-Month Shoot In New Zealand

    Well, ordinarily, a film beginning production is hardly a newsworthy event, but when it's "The Hobbit" some exceptions have to be made. Surviving the near collapse of its home MGM, Guillermo Del Toro leaving last year, union woes and Peter Jackson getting hospitalized in January with a perforated ul...

    First Look: Sexed Up Wonder Woman

    Here's the first picture of Adrianne Palicki as the crime fighting Wonder Woman. The costume looks like a Halloween costume. A little too much for me.

    Weekend Box Office: Unfortunately, Bradley Cooper Is A Star As 'Limitless' Opens At Number One

    When your R-rated comedy does over a quarter of a billion domestically, it’s probably time to cash-in. And yet, the three stars involved in “The Hangover” have taken very different career turns between “Hangover” films. Ed Helms has found himself handicapped by not only being a “type” more than a real actor, but also having to return to NBC as a supporting actor on “The Office,” while planned collaborations with Judd Apatow and Steve Carrell never panned out. Zack Galifianakis has done the most with his newfound clout, starring in one bonafide $100 million grosser (“Due Date”), doing supporting work in high profile performers (“Dinner For Sch...

    Weekend Box Office: Cooper's Limitless Tops Weak Openers; Lincoln Lawyer and Paul Vie for Fourth

    The box office continues to be depressed, no matter what distributors throw at audiences. Adults and families are still turning up at the mutliplex, but where is that old reliable target demo, young males? Anthony D'Alessandro reports. No matter how many wide releases Hollywood booked in theaters this weekend, none could bail out Hollywood’s box office doldrums.  Relativity Media's Bradley Cooper drug thriller Limitless outperformed its $15 million estimate, tripping out with $19 million in number one – a bright spot for the production company whose self-distribution efforts have skidded since unspooling Warrior’s Way back in December.  The f...
