The Book Thief Blu-Ray Review

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

I’m not sure if I can refer to THE BOOK THIEF as a war movie or a Holocaust movie. It touches on both of them, but in such a brief way, they feel more like talking points. Like many movies before it, THE BOOK THIEF uses World War II as a backdrop for the growth […]

Russell Crowe and Emma Watson star in the first Noah trailer

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

The first trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s much talked about NOAH is finally online and not in bootleg form. The film has been the poster child for director’s vision versus a studio’s desire to appeal to a mass audience. The trailer looks pretty good, but I think the film will be known more for the various […]

The Bling Ring Blu-ray Review

Monday, October 28th, 2013

As the closing credits wrapped on Sofia Coppola’s THE BLING RING, a revelation came to me; with the exception of Bob Haris and Charlotte from LOST IN TRANSLATION, I have hated almost every character in every Sofia Coppola movie. And if not for LOST IN TRANSLATION, I probably wouldn’t keep giving Sofia Coppola so many […]

Katie Chang talks The Bling Ring and working with Sofia Coppola

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

THE BLING RING is the newest film by Sofia Coppola (LOST IN TRANSLATION, THE VIRGIN SUICIDES). THE BLING RING centers around a group of fame-obsessed teens in Los Angeles who begin breaking into the houses of celebrities using Twitter to figure out when the homes will be empty. Based on a true story, THE BLING […]

Emma Watson is officially set to star in Your Voice In My Head

Saturday, September 7th, 2013

The will she or won’t she saga between Emma Watson and YOUR VOICE IN MY HEAD seems to be over.  It was officially announced today that Emma Watson will be starring in the adaptation of Emma Forrest’s acclaimed New York Times best selling novel.  Emma Watson was first rumored for the role back in early […]

THE BLING RING official synopsis: In the fame-obsessed […]

Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Russell Crowe in new images from Noah

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

It has been a while since I was in Sunday school, but I don’t remember mean snakes, giant angels or a warrior Noah in the story of Noah’s ark. I thought it was just an old guy pairing up animals and building a ship. But next March, Darren Aronofsky is going to set the story […]

The Bling Ring Movie Review

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Have you ever found ‘nothing’ to watch on TV but continued to stare at the tube while zoning out and not caring what was on the screen in front of you? This happened to me at the theater when I saw Sofia Coppola’s latest motion picture THE BLING RING. It was as entertaining as ‘nothing’ on television. […]

Emma Watson is set for The Queen of the Tearling

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

After starring in 8 Harry Potter movies that basically controlled her life for almost a decade, I would have thought Emma Watson would be avoiding franchise films completely.  After living life as Hermione for so long, I can’t imagine jumping back into blockbuster territory is appealing to her.  But money talks and a girl has […]

Emma Watson and Leslie Mann star in a new featurette for The Bling Ring

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

I’m not sure why any movie would want to compete with MAN OF STEEL, but apparently THIS IS THE END and THE BLING RING think they have a chance against Superman.  To remind you that Emma Watson will be stealing from celebrity’s homes this weekend (at least in New York and Los Angeles), we have […]

Emma Watson, Rihanna and Seth Rogen appear in new images from This Is The End

Saturday, June 8th, 2013

I think we can now say that THIS IS THE END will be the comedy event of the summer, especially now that THE HANGOVER PART III hit with a thud.  As excited as I am to see what Seth Rogen and his friends have in store for us, I hate that it’s going up against […]

Emma Watson robs Paris Hilton in a new clip from The Bling Ring

Friday, May 24th, 2013

I really thought THE BLING RING would be the movie that brought some redemption to Sofia Coppola.  After two consecutive disasters in MARIE ANTOINETTE and SOMEWHERE, her finest film LOST IN TRANSLATION seems like a long time ago.  But after THE BLING RING debuted at Cannes, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to do anything […]

Emma Watson gives attitude in new photos from The Bling Ring

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

A handful of new pictures from Sofia Coppola’s THE BLING RING starring Emma Watson have been released.  Coppola’s fifth directed film will be hitting theaters in about month and it’s time to start drumming up the marketing campaign.  None of Coppola’s previous films have been box office gold but they usually stir up some strong […]

Emma Watson looks happy on the final poster for The Bling Ring

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

If I knew nothing about THE BLING RING and happened to walk by this new poster in a movie theater, I would know right away that the film was directed by Sofia Coppola.  It looks similar to MARIE ANTOINETTE and SOMEWHERE, with the font of the title and the way it’s written.  But if there’s […]

Emma Watson stars in the new trailer for The Bling Ring

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

The more I see from Sofia Coppola’s THE BLING RING, the more interested I become with the film.  Initially, the idea of seeing spoiled Hollywood girls rob spoiled celebrities didn’t appeal to me, but with a couple of good trailers and a good first clip, my interest is officially peaked.  And yes, some of that […]

Emma Watson does a sexy pole dance in the first clip from The Bling Ring

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

Okay, so maybe the actual clip isn’t as exciting as the title would have you believe, but I blame the marketing team behind Sofia Coppola’s THE BLING RING for letting the first clip from the film be one of Emma Watson doing a pseudo pole dance.  They know what they have on their hands and […]

Emma Watson gets wild in new images from The Bling Ring

Monday, April 8th, 2013

If you didn’t already love Emma Watson from her days as Hermione in the Harry Potter franchise, then surely you fell in love with her in the trailer for THIS IS THE END (click the link if you want to check it out) where she busts into James Franco’s home and hits Seth Rogen in […]

Emma Watson robs Seth Rogen and James Franco in the red band This Is The End trailer

Monday, April 1st, 2013

There’s something strangely satisfying about watching Emma Watson bust into James Franco’s house and hit Seth Rogen with an axe, then hearing Danny McBride complain that “Hermione stole all our stuff”.  From the looks of the trailer, THIS IS THE END is going to use every celebrity cameo to the fullest and it actually feels […]

Emma Watson insists she’s not starring in Fifty Shades of Grey

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

I usually find that when it comes to Hollywood rumors, the old saying “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” usually applies.  But I was skeptical when news broke the other day that the hacker group Anonymous had uncovered proof that Emma Watson was going to be playing Anastasia Steele in the adaptation of E.L. James erotic […]

Emma Watson stars in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring trailer

Friday, March 8th, 2013

All the attention has been on the bikini clad Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez in SPRING BREAKERS that I almost forgot Emma Watson and director Sofia Coppola have their own story of spoiled girls gone bad, THE BLING RING, which is coming this summer.  It’s unfair to compare the two since THE BLING RING is […]

Emma Watson may play Cinderella for director Kenneth Branagh

Friday, March 1st, 2013

I just finished writing about Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, breaking out of the Potter world and now we have news of another wizard making good on her fame.  The adorable Emma Watson hasn’t done a ton of stuff post-Potter, but she’s been great in what she’s been in.  She most recently impressed me with […]

The Perks of Being a Wallflower Blu-ray Review

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Seeing the pages of Stephen Chbosky’s novel THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER come to life in the film adaptation of the same name, I let out a sigh of relief. Fully understanding that books and film are two different mediums, it delights me to no end when the movie manages to capture the spirit […]

Emma Watson gazes behind her shoulder in new photos from The Bling Ring

Friday, December 7th, 2012

One of those movies that hasn’t been getting a lot of press lately is Sofia Coppola’s film THE BLING RING, but that’s probably going to be changing once this film hits the festival circuit next season. THE BLING RING is based on the true story of a group of teenagers who robbed some celebrities homes […]

The Perks of Being a Wallflower starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson coming to Blu-ray in February

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Summit Entertainment has announced that the coming-of-age film THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, from writer/director Stephen Chbosky and starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, Ezra Miller, Dylan McDermott, Kate Walsh, Paul Rudd and Nina Dobrev, will be available on Blu-ray February 12, 2013. THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER follows Charlie (Logan Lerman), an introverted […]

Emma Watson and Ezra Miller toast Logan Lerman in a new The Perks of Being a Wallflower clip

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Next month THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, starring Emma Watson (HARRY POTTER franchise), Logan Lerman (THE THREE MUSKETEERS) and Ezra Miller (WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN), hits theaters and today the studio has released a short little clip that is short but touching. THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER really just looks like […]

Emma Watson and Logan Lerman in more new photos from The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Friday, August 24th, 2012

More photos from director Stephen Chbosky’s upcoming film THE PERKS OF BENG A WALLFLOWER (Chbosky also wrote the novel the movies based on) have popped up and these aren’t really anything too new as we’ve seen all these scenes in the trailer already. However, as always Emma Watson (HARRY POTTER franchise) looks too adorable (even […]

Emma Watson and Logan Lerman survive high school in new photos from The Perks of Being A Wallflower

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

One of the more light hearted films that we can all look forward to this fall is THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, which has been adapted from the novel by Stephen Chbosky. Today a few more photos have been released and they can’t help but bring a smile to your face. Emma Watson (of […]

Russell Crowe looks scraggly in new photo from Darren Aronofsky’s Noah

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Considering the Darren Aronofsky biblical epic NOAH isn’t set to hit theaters until next spring, it’s a bit surprising that we’re already getting a first glance of the title character played by Russell Crowe. No complaining on this end though because we probably won’t get anything else of any substance until December, after that we […]

Anthony Hopkins will join Russell Crowe and Emma Watson in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah

Monday, July 9th, 2012

The next epic film from Darren Aronofsky (BLACK SWAN) is still gathering together talent as today we learn that Anthony Hopkins has joined. Anthony Hopkins is set to play Methuselah, which those who went to Sunday school will remember was the oldest man mentioned in the Bible. Methuselah also happened to be the grandfather to […]

Jennifer Connelly may finally join Russell Crowe, Emma Watson and Logan Lerman in Noah

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Jennifer Connelly‘s name has been thrown around for Darren Aronofsky’s (BLACK SWAN) upcoming film NOAH for a couple of months now, but it looks like today she is finally and officially in negotiations to star in the film alongside Russell Crowe, Emma Watson (who I’m guessing is replacing Saoirse Ronan), Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth and […]

Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller in The Perks of Being a Wallflower trailer

Monday, June 4th, 2012

Yesterday, we showed you the poster for THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER and today we get the first full length trailer for the film.  As I alluded to yesterday, I’m a sucker for coming of age films and I have to say that this one looks like it captures the teenage angst and outcast […]

Emma Watson and Logan Lerman get close on the poster for The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

One of my biggest pet peeves, and something that’s become commonplace lately in Hollywood, is the idea of trailers for trailers.  Why on earth would we want to see a ten second preview of a two minute advertisement?  What sense does that make and why are studios doing that now?  I can’t answer those questions, […]

Emma Watson is pretty in pink in a new set photo from The Bling Ring

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

One of the more interesting films that I’m looking forward to is Sofia Coppola’s next flick THE BLING RING. Not only does it sound like a fascinating story, but it also stars Emma Watson (from Harry Potter fame) and I know I’m not the only one dying to see her in another film outside of […]

Leslie Mann joins Emma Watson in The Bling Ring

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Leslie Mann (shown above at this year’s Academy Awards) is best known for the movies she does with her husband Judd Apatow, but she does do movies he’s not involved in, such as THE CHANGE-UP and 17 AGAIN.  Granted, nothing will beat her small role in THE 40 YEAR-OLD VIRGIN, but she’s usually dependable for […]

Emma Watson set for Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Harry Potter who?  Emma Watson has taken off like a race horse since the conclusion of the Harry Potter films, with THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER hitting theaters soon, then lining up YOUR VOICE IN MY HEAD for her Potter director David Yates and most recently, signing on for Guillermo Del Toro‘s re-imagining of […]

Emma Watson set to star in Guillermo Del Toro’s version of Beauty and the Beast

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

After the tragedy that was BEASTLY, I have to admit that I’m done with the Beauty and the Beast storyline.  We have the cherished Disney cartoon, which was recently re-released in 3D and that’s pretty much all I think about now when I think of the story.  So even though one of the most visually […]

Emma Watson joins Your Voice In My Head for Harry Potter director David Yates

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

If you’ve been a key part of one of the longest running, most successful franchises in movie history, you’d probably be a little skittish about branching out and building a free-standing career.  So who better to reunite with than the director of the last Harry Potter movies, David Yates?  Emma Watson has taken the lead […]

Emma Watson and Logan Lerman in new images from The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

It doesn’t technically have a theatrical release date yet, but I would have thought we’d have seen a trailer for the coming of age film THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER by now.  I feel like we’ve been seeing stills from the movie pop up every few months for quite a while now.  But instead, […]

Emma Watson and Logan Lerman in more images from The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant I think the movie-world is anxiously waiting to see if the Harry Potter stars can make it on their own without Hogwarts behind them.  Personally, I think Emma Watson has the best shot of all of them to break free of the HP curse, but we still need to see her […]

Get your Harry Potter movies while you can, Warner Bros. is putting them in the vault

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant I’m actually surprised no studio has mimicked Disney’s practice of releasing films for a limited time and then putting them in a “vault”.  It’s a practice that has served Disney well as they create an urgency in their customers to buy their product and then excitement when they finally bring something […]

Emma Watson and Logan Lerman in new images from The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

Posted by: Zack Bruce Articles like this one make me feel like I’m really behind on my books. Luckily I have a friend that read this one. Today we have photos from the small screen adaptation of THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER. The book written by Stephen Chbosky is full of letters written to […]

Michelle Williams and Emma Watson in the My Week With Marilyn trailer

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant I had little to no expectations for the upcoming film MY WEEK WITH MARILYN.  But I have to say, after watching the first trailer, I’m now officially excited to see the movie.  I was concerned it was going to be impossible for Michelle Williams to pull off playing Marilyn Monroe, but […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 coming to Blu-ray in November

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Even though I’m not the biggest Harry Potter fan, HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2 might have been the best movie of the summer.  It was a great way to end the series and everyone brought their best for the final installment.  The film is due to hit Blu-ray […]

Anne Hathaway looking to join Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe in Les Miserables

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Although nothing is technically official about the upcoming musical LES MISERABLES, the project is at least attracting some big time talent.  The film is set to be directed by Tom Hooper, who gained international fame with the Oscar winning THE KING’S SPEECH and Hugh Jackman has put off THE WOLVERINE a […]

Michelle Williams is Marilyn Monroe in new poster for My Week With Marilyn

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant If you haven’t had a chance to see photos of Michelle Williams portraying Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film MY WEEK WITH MARILYN then you are missing out. Until I saw it myself, I too had a tough time believing that Michelle Williams could look like the legendary actress. We watched […]

Michelle Williams channels Marilyn Monroe in a new image from My Week With Marilyn

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant There seems to be a lot of Oscar-y anticipation around the upcoming film MY WEEK WITH MARILYN, but I just can’t get on board with it.  I think the idea of making a film about an assistant’s week around old Hollywood glamor is enticing, but I’m not sure how well it […]

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart didn’t pick up many Teen Choice Awards

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Apparently the Teen Choice Awards were on last night and since I’m not a teenager, I didn’t watch it. I also don’t watch it (or really acknowledge it) because they have ridiculous  categories like “Choice Vampire”, “Choice Web Star” or “Choice Twit” (which incidentally went to Justin Bieber), it’s all a […]

Guillermo del Toro to develop Beauty and the Beast as a film for Emma Watson to lead

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Posted by: Zack Bruce Can I be hired as Guillermo del Toro’s personal project organizer? This guy wants to do everything! For right now, the director is tied down with PACIFIC RIM, but has several plans when he is finished up. Turns out that CRAZY STUPID LOVE producer Denise Di Novi is developing an adaptation […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Well it is finally over.  After years of following Potter-mania, the films from the classic books have come to an end with HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 2 (which I will now refer to as HPATDHP2).  It is of course bittersweet to announce this finale as these characters and their wizarding world have […]
