First Weekend Of 2015 Sees The Hobbit Still Dominating The Box Office


Peter Jackson Meryl Streep Angelina Jolie

This week’s box office confirmes what we’ve already suspected for a while: people love to watch fantasy over the holidays. The first weekend box office of the year was dominated by The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies with $21.9 million. This raised its total haul in the U.S. and Canada to $220.8 million, according to The LA Times. The fourth and final instalment in the Peter Jackson-directed franchise is also the most critically acclaimed one (61% on Rotten Tomatoes), so if you’re still not sure what to go see next weekend, Five Armies is definitely a solid choice.

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies Still
Battle of the Five Armies might be the best Hobbit film to date. 

Then there’s Into the Woods, which is kind of a winter classic – you have fairy tales, singing and Meryl Streep, it’s no wonder the film pulled in $19,1 million over the weekend. The Rob Marshall adaptation of the classic Sondheim musical came in second at the box office, followed closely by Unbroken with $18,4 million, as per The LA Times' report.

Unbroken Review


Excellent

With a true story that's almost hard to believe, this inspiring biographical drama is made with attention to detail and a remarkable resistance to sentiment. And strong acting helps bring the characters to life, even if everything feels a little too carefully staged. But it's the real-life aspect that grabs the attention, and a central figure who's a remarkable example of the indomitable human spirit. The film also marks an auspicious step forward for Angelina Jolie as a director, telling a big story without giving in to the usual sappy moviemaking pitfalls.

Son of Italian immigrants, Louie Zamperini (Jack O'Connell) grew up in 1920s Southern California and by the time he hit his teens is on the way to becoming a criminal. But his brother Pete (Alex Russell) helps him channel his energy to running instead, and his natural skill make him a local champion as well as an American record-holder at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. When the war breaks out, he enlists and serves as a bombardier in the Pacific, surviving a plane crash before later going down at sea and drifting with two colleagues (Domhnall Gleeson and Finn Wittrock) for 47 days before being captured by the Japanese. From here he endures a horrific stint in a prisoner of war camp, taunted by the cruel commandant everyone calls The Bird (Miyavi), who takes particular notice of Louie simply because he refuses to break.

Jolie assembles the film as a big-budget epic, with massive set pieces as the plot cycles through several outrageous episodes before settling in on the prison years. Cinematographer Roger Deakins carefully contrasts Louie's sunny California youth with the much starker visit to Nazi Germany and the astoundingly bleak Japanese prison camp, with those endless days baking at sea in the middle. So the film looks terrific, drawing us into each chapter in Louie's story while building a sense of momentum. It's not quite as complex as it looks; Louie's darker moments feel a bit superficial. But O'Connell adds some weight to each scene, offering a kick of emotion as well as the charisma that convinces the men around him to draw inspiration from his tenacity.

Sony Leak: Scott Rudin And Amy Pascal's Fiery Exchange On Angelina


Amy Pascal Scott Rudin Angelina Jolie

So at first all we got from the Sony leak was a couple of decent reviewed movies. But now? Now, we've got all the juicy stuff, including a ferocious exchange between studio co-chair Amy Pascal and produce Scott Rudin. We also got some pretty heated passages about Angelina Jolie and Megan Ellison.

Amy PascalAmy Pascal had an explosive email conversation with producer Scott Rudin

The focus of the fiery exchange was a back-and-forth between Pascal and Rudin concerning the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic. Now, we already know that this project has been blighted by various drop-outs and casting problems, though it seems that David Fincher's departure may have been down to more than just money.

Should Angelina Jolie's 'Unbroken' Still Be Considered An Oscar Contender?


Angelina Jolie Jack O'Connell

For the majority of 2014 - and some time before it - Angelina Jolie's latest directorial effort Unbroken has been talked up as a potential Oscar winner. Lord knows the Academy has a penchant for historical biopics and the story of Louis Zamperini is certainly one of the most inspiring stories to rise from the horrors of World War II.

Jack O'ConnellJack O'Connell [L] stars as Louis Zamperini in Angelina Jolie's Unbroken

Zamperini was a teenage track star at the Berlin Olympics in 1936 but was tested beyond belief as a prisoner of the Japanese during the Second World War. Presumed dead after crash landing in the South Pacific, Zamperini survived by clutching onto a raft for 47 days before being incarcerated in prison camps and beaten daily for nearly 3 years, all whilst kept on a near-starvation diet.

With Two Successful Movies Out, Angelina Jolie Can Afford To Do Pet Projects Like "By The Sea"


Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt Jack O'Connell

Recently, Angelina Jolie has made no bones about moving on from acting onto something longer lasting and probably more substantial. I’m hinting at a directorial career, if you haven’t guessed. But Jolie is doing far more than hinting. While doing press for her second effort behind the camera, the critically acclaimed Louis Zamperini biopic, Jolie managed to slip in a little reference to that other project she’s working on.

Angelina Jolie is facing some serious award nods for her second stint as a feature film director in 'Unbroken', and while filmmaking seems to be something this Hollywood superstar is naturally gifted it, she admits it was never on her to-do list.

Angelina Jolie never thought directing was on the cards

Having won countless awards including an Academy Award in her prolific acting career, Angelina Jolie is without doubt one of the brightest stars Hollywood has to offer. She is just as well known for her extensive humanitarian projects, namely regarding sexual violence in military conflict zones and has done more than her fair share of charity trips and million dollar donations. It was perhaps this that took her to her 2011 feature filmmaking debut 'In the Land of Blood and Honey' which dealt with an issue close to her work: the Bosnian conflicts.

With the recent news that 'Fury' has topped the box-office over the course of it's opening weekend, Brad Pitt - the film's star - talks about what went into the creation of this hit film. In an interview with the BBC, Pitt explains how the film was never intended to act as a glorification of war. "War is hell," he says, while discussing the film's dramatic impact. In his own words, the film "was about the accumulative psychic trauma that every soldier carries to some extent."

Arise Dame Angelina! Jolie Rewarded With Honorary Title By Queen At Buckingham Palace


Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt

Some might have already called Angelina Jolie Hollywood royalty, but now the actress has officially been made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II, during a visit to Buckingham Palace. As Jolie is an American the title, which is the female equivalent of a knighthood, is honorary meaning she cannot be addressed as Dame Angelina Jolie. Still, if Jolie wants she can refer to herself as the rather longwinded Angelina Jolie DCMG.

Twitter Explodes Over Ryan Gosling's Baby News: Five Other Celebrity Crushes You Have No Chance With


Ryan Gosling Eva Mendes Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie Cara Delevingne Tom Hiddleston Taylor Swift

Hey girl, did you know that Ryan Gosling is about to be a dad? Neither did anyone else until this week, but when he and girlfriend Eva Mendes broke the news, the internet exploded with highly inappropriate amounts of “grief.” Well, it was mostly just Twitter. Well, mostly just overdramatic Gosling and Notebook fans. But in honor of these poor lovestruck souls (you can read some choice tweets below) we’ve compiled a list of five other people you are never going to date – no matter how much you’d like to.

Ryan Gosling
Gosling and Mendes got together in 2011, so he's technically been off the market for some time now.

Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie. When asked to choose between this power couple, most people would be fine with either. Jolie is intelligent, charitable, worldly and stunning. Brad Pitt, even after his hey-day is… how do we put this delicately… hot, not to mention a creative and business-savvy force to be reckoned with. Fortunately for them, they seem to have found a good thing – lasting marriage, a whole litter of children and thriving careers to boot. Unfortunately for us, this means that both are off the market for good. The same largely applies to Beyonce and Jay Z, by the way.

Adoring Fans Raise "The Fault In Our Stars" To Box Office Success, While "Edge Of Tomorrow" Falters


Shailene Woodley Ansel Elgort Tom Cruise Emily Blunt Angelina Jolie

The Fault In Our Stars seems to be emerging as the winner of this weekend’s box office race, after it made teens across the US (and the world) bawl their eyes out for three solid days. That’s what the tweets say, anyway. The film tells the story of a pair of teens living with cancer – the clever and self-deprecating Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) and the disarmingly lovable Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort). As the two meet, fall in love and go on a life-changing trip together, they discover some truths about life, love and the meaning of it all.. As for the box office stats, well, those are nothing to cry about.

The Fault In Our Stars Cast
The cast of TFIOS at the film's New York premiere.

TFIOS, adapted from John Green’s bestselling novel (read all his books, if you haven’t already, seriously) is doing amazingly well not just in the US, but also in international markets. The film, which reportedly cost just $17 million to make, checked in at $26.1 million in domestic profits on Friday, and is projected to pass the $50 million mark by the end of Sunday, per Box Office Mojo. In international markets, TFIOS is expected to do even better, although the data is still unavailable at this time.

Will 'Cleopatra' Be Angelina Jolie's Swan Song?


Angelina Jolie

We’ve been trying not to listen to them, but there have been plenty of reports circulating that Angelina Jolie intends to quit acting. Even more worrying to hear, it’s being reported that she has plans to act in just one more project before throwing in the towel. Riding high off the success of Maleficent you’d think Jolie would be buzzing off the fact that she’s reached the zenith of her career rather than thinking about calling it quits.

So, what is the project that could potentially be Angelina Jolie’s swan song? It’s looking like it will be the upcoming Cleopatra film that’s been in the works for what feels like forever.

Official: 'Maleficent' Takes $69.4 Million - But Can It Beat 'Edge Of Tomorrow'?


Angelina Jolie Tom Cruise

Angelina Jolie’s Disney blockbuster ‘Maleficent’ has taken $69.4 million at the final U.S box office count for the weekend. That means it’s now pretty much recouped its $180 million budget in worldwide takings and is well on its way to making a bucket load of cash. The competition turned out to be weak, with Seth MacFarlane’s ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ flat lining with $17 million.

MaleficentAngelina Jolie in Disney's 'Maleficent'

The comedy was almost beaten by Fox’s X:Men: Days of Future Past, which itself dropped 64% in its second week. Elsewhere, the critically derided Blended and Neighbors (now in its fourth week) were neck and neck for the fifth spot with Seth Rogen’s comedy losing out.

Angelina Jolie To Retire After Cleopatra? Actress Hints At Focus Shift


Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie has hinted that a retirement from acting could be on the horizon after she finishes her upcoming Cleopatra biopic. The Maleficent actress, who is currently promoting her dark fairytale retake, has already indicated that she'd like to step away from movies to concentrate on her humanitarian concerns.

"I've had a wonderful career and I'm very happy to have had all the opportunities to tell stories and work for as long as I have," she said last month at a Maleficent press conference. "I'm sure there will be more films but I am happy I am able to be selective and have fun with characters like this but I would like to focus on writing and directing and above all I would like to focus more on my work with the UN."

Film Critics Told What's What: 'Maleficent' Wows Moviegoers


Angelina Jolie Elle Fanning

There’s been a bit of a dichotomy in opinion when it comes to Disney’s Maleficent. Angelina Jolie’s eagerly anticipated film was released last week, and despite taking $70 million on its opening weekend, has received mixed reviews from critics. Jolie, who plays the titular character, has been highly praised for her performance, although it’s often noted that her acting is the redeeming feature of the live-action film.

angelina jolie maleficent Angelina Jolie has been widely praised for her performance as Maleficent

Vulture’s Bilge Ebiri sums up: “Jolie’s commitment to the part is admirable: She gives this Maleficent a real emotional urgency. But the rest of the movie lets her down.” Perhaps the most scathing review comes from Jonathan Romney at The Guardian, who gives the film just one star.  Romney describes Maleficent as an “icky affair,” dubbing the movie a “messy live-action retelling of Sleeping Beauty” and criticising Jolie, who he claims is “equipped with a range of variable English accents.”
