Brad Pitt And Co Head Back To WWII With 'Fury'


Brad Pitt David Ayer Shia LaBeouf Logan Lerman Michael Pena Jon Bernthal Angelina Jolie

Now storming through cinemas worldwide after claiming the US box office crown last weekend, the World War II tank-crew thriller 'Fury' is an old-school war movie that attempts to update the genre with a more internalised approach to its characters.

Brad Pitt has deep respect for the war veterans who inspired 'Fury'

"It's about a family and their love for each other," says writer-director David Ayer of the five-man crew played by Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal. "We wanted to explore the moral and psychological hazards of war, and how they affect this family of brothers."

Fury Review


Good

From Training Day to this year's Sabotage, filmmaker David Ayer writes and directs movies about the cathartic power of releasing your inner warrior. And this World War II action thriller is more of the same, with a "war is hell" message stirred in for good measure. The problem is that there's nothing particularly new here. It's a beautifully shot and edited film, with terrific performances and a remarkable sense of scale, but there have been so many movies made about this conflict that it's difficult to find something original to connect with.

It's near the end of the war, April 1945, as Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) leads the crew of a tank named Fury: Bible (Shia LaBeouf) is a true believer, Gordo (Michael Pena) is a relaxed joker, and Coon-Ass (Jon Bernthal) is a hot-headed thug. Having just lost their driver, they're joined by rookie Norman (Logan Lerman), who doesn't yet have a wartime nickname because he never thought he'd end up driving a tank. Together, they head further into Germany, not as liberators but as invaders and occupiers, working with other tank crews to take a strategic town before heading further into the hot zone, where a series of particularly brutal Nazi assaults ensue.

The point of the film seems to be that war erodes a person's humanity over time, and the sharpest aspect is the way each character emerges at some point on the continuum. Obviously, Norman is the naive newbie who still has a strong conscience, while at the other extreme Coon-Ass is virtually a monster. Wardaddy is somewhere in between, a tough guy who still has a sense of perspective, such as when he reasons that Norman should be allowed to have some private time with a young German girl (Alicia von Rittberg) simply because they're "young and alive". All of the actors are excellent, adding telling details to their characters that deepen every scene. And the camaraderie between the five-man crew is remarkably authentic, as is their ease inside the cramped quarters of the tank, which makes submarine movies look spacious by comparison.

Brad Pitt: 'War Is Hell'


Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie David Ayer

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."

Box Office Report: "Fury" Storms In To Knock "Gone Girl" Off The Throne


Brad Pitt Guillermo Del Toro David Fincher Channing Tatum

Ok, it’s time to talk box office stats again. Unlike the past 2 weeks, however, there are actually some interesting new contenders this week. David Fincher’s smash hit Gone Girl has finally been dethroned. Predictably, the new chamion is the Brad Pitt starrer Fury, which took the throne with $23,5 million over the three-day period, easily topping Gone Girl’s $17,8 million (stats according to Box Office Mojo). Fury, a dramatic and gory WWII tale, exposing the horrors of war, also stars Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña and Scott Eastwood. Even so, Pitt who produced and starred, took center stage during the film’s promo rounds.

Watch the trailer for Fury below.

"Studios use star power as the No. 1 marketing tool, and Brad Pitt has that," says Phil Contrino, box office analyst for BoxOffice.com. "But it's not star power alone which gets people to the theaters. Brad Pitt picks smart pictures that people want to see."

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.

Might Want To Look For A New Gig - Vitalii Sediuk Banned From Celebrity Events And Put On Probation For Brad Pitt Incident


Brad Pitt America Ferrera

Vitalii Sediuk, aka the Ukranian “prankster” who has made a career out of harassing celebrities, has had his day in court and – probably – his fifteen minutes. The “prankster” ran out on the red carpet at Wednesday’s Maleficent premiere and attempted to punch Brad Pitt, of all people. Earlier this month, he had attempted to dive under America Ferrera’s gown at Cannes. This is standard practice for Sediuk and has in fact led to his management dropping him.

Brad Pitt
To his credit, Brad Pitt recovered brilliantly from the incident.

As of Friday, however, he has even bigger worries. After he pleaded no contest to battery and unlawful activity charges, Sediuk was sentenced to three years of probation, one year of psychological counseling, ordered to stay 500 yards away from all celebrity events, and issued with a restraining order to keep away from Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Yes, that sounds about right.

Steve Knight Is Penning Brad Pitt's 'World War Z' Sequel


Brad Pitt Steven Knight

World War Z was just one of those success stories. Stranded in that middle ground between critical failure and acclaim, but well and truly prominent in box offices around the globe - it went on to collect $540m worldwide. Steven Knight, according to Variety, has been hired to write the most inevitable of sequels. 

World War Z

Knight’s writing credits include Dirty Pretty Things, Eastern Promises and Jason Statham’s Hummingbird, which all bode well for an action zombie thriller. The sequel already has a director: Juan Antonio Bayona who was behind the camera for The Orphanage and The Impossible. Pitt may have had some sway in this as it comes weeks after it was announced that he was in early talks to star in an untitled World War II romantic thriller, also written by Knight.

Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt Disney

Angelina Jolie has been doing the rounds promoting Maleficent this week but it's not her soon-to-be-released Disney film which has us all talking.

Angelina Jolie described the difficulties of acting alongside her 4-year-old daughter Vivienne whilst in Maleficent and how Vivienne was the only child she knew who didn’t cry when they saw her in her Maleficent costume.

Angelina Jolie Maleficent

Jolie explained how she had not wanted her daughter in the film for the sake of being in a role but because Vivienne was the only child who didn’t cry when she saw Jolie as Maleficent! Speaking to the BBC, Jolie said Vivienne is “in two scenes, they’re cute little scenes – but I’m her mom,” adding “It wasn’t that I wanted her in a film, it was out of necessity.”

Brad Pitt Ready To Sign Deal To Star In 'True Detective' Season 2?


Brad Pitt Matthew Mcconaughey Woody Harrelson

There’s been rumors buzzing around that Brad Pitt is set to star in True Detective season 2 since, well, True Detective season 1 ended. The show was an international success, with both Woody Harrelson and Matthew Mcconaughey highly praised for their roles as detectives Rust Cohle and Marty Hart.

Brad Pitt True Detective Will Brad Pitt join the cast of True Detective?

It was unusual to see two such high profile actors taking time from their busy movie schedules to indulge in a little HBO series, but yikes did it pay off. With McConaughey riding high off his Oscar win for Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective, the actor, once famed for poorly penned rom coms, is now practically unstoppable.  We're sure that Christopher Nolan feels like the cat who's got the cream, landing him for the upcoming Interstellar.

Angelina Jolie Celebrates Love (And New Movie) With Elle Cover And Interview


Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt might seem like the perfect couple now (or as close to perfect as any human couple can be anyway), but it wasn’t always so. Before the two found their little slice of heaven in each other and their brood of children, Jolie had all but given up on finding love, the Maleficent actress says in the June issue of Elle. In an interview to go with her stunning cover, Jolie andmits: "I never thought I'd have children, I never thought I'd be in love, I never thought I'd meet the right person."

Apparently she had a pretty good reason to believe that too.

Are Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Pulling A Beyonce/Jay Z Stunt With New Secret Project Together?


Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie news are usually a Hollywood highlight, but when the pair are about to film a new movie together, it takes the buzz to a whole new level. The power couple have not collaborated on a film project since 2005’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Angelina Jolie
After a few rough months, Jolie is diving back into work.

The Hollywood Reporter first announced the news, but at this point, there is little else to report. According to The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported the news, the project could be filmed from a script for a relationship drama, which Angelina Jolie wrote a few years ago. That project centered on a couple with issues who take a vacation in a last-ditch effort to save their marriage.There is no director attached to the project at this time and there is a possibility that Jolie might direct it herself. Jolie is in post right now Unbroken, the true World War II tale of Lou Zamperini that she directed for Universal. It is also not known who is producing. So far, that’s all the information to report on the upcoming project, but watch this space for future updates.

Brad Pitt And Director David Michod Adapting Stanley McChrystal's Story Into "The Operators" Film


Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt is keeping on with the theme of military films and, with the help of Animal Kingdom helmer David Michod, is tackling a fresh subject – the controversial Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former commanding general of international and U.S. forces in Afghanistan. McChrystal first became a household name in the US, when he was profiled for Rolling Stone back in 2010.

Brad Pitt, Oscars 2014

Michael Hastings’ profile easily sparked controversy, exposing the general and his staff's disdain for their superiors, including National Security Advisor James L. Jones, Vice President Biden and President Obama, and ultimately prompting McChrystal to resign.

Celebrity Engagements That Didn't Last


Naya Rivera Big Sean Jennifer Lopez Ben Affleck Gwyneth Paltrow Brad Pitt Evan Rachel Wood Marilyn Manson Ryan Reynolds Alanis Morissette

The most shocking break up news of the week goes to Glee star Naya Rivera and now ex-fiancee Big Sean. The pair have called it quits amid rumours of infidelity and Rolex theft. Naya tweeted “@bigsean stealing rolexes from a lady’s house now. Maybe cuz I’m on Glee and making more money or something. #triflin.” Although the tweet was quickly removed, the plot is definitely thickening.

Naya Rivera Big Sean Naya Rivera and Big Sean have called time on their relationship

These others celebs also decided to end their very high profile engagements, although none of them accused each other of stealing expensive watches. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck AKA Bennifer were a bit of an odd couple to even begin with. In 2003 the couple were involved in an extremely high profile relationship, going so far as to co-star in a couple of god awful movies. The engagement was broken off in 2004, allegedly because Ben wasn’t ready to give up single life. Which makes sense because a year later he married Jennifer Garner. Burnnnnn.

'Draft Day' Reviews: 'Moneyball' Is Still The Underdog Sports Film To Watch


Kevin Costner Brad Pitt Jennifer Garner

The people behind ‘Draft Day’ are probably getting a little bit tired of comparisons to 'Moneyball', the Brad Pitt-starring 2011 hit, but given that the reviews have just been filed, and it seems to be lacking where 'Moneyball' prospered – so to speak – now is the perfect time for comparisons. And it doesn’t look rosy for director Ivan Reitman.

Draft DayKevin Coster pulls some surprise punches in 'Draft Day' 

The premise is simple: under the intense scrutiny of both a demanding owner and fickle fans, Sonny Weaver (Kevin Costner) must make draft day decisions that will both shape his career and the future of The Cleveland Browns. All the while, hundreds of young men’s sports careers hang in the balance.

Scarlett Johansson Finds Nickname 'Insulting', These Other Celebs Don't Seem To Mind


Scarlett Johansson Brad Pitt Kristen Stewart Angelina Jolie Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lawrence

These days it seems as though fame is cemented when the world refers to you by your very own portmanteau. Over the past few years it’s become a way of referring to our favourite celebs, because in the texting generation don’t nobody gots time to say their full names. Think J-Lo, K-Stew, J-Law, ScarJo, the list goes on. Except ScarJo wants her name taken off the list, because, well, she’s apparently above all that. Apparently starring in a Marvel movie franchise qualifies you as a serious actress, Meryl Streep style. Or MezStree as we like to call her. And she freaking loves it.

Scarlett Johansson portmanteau Scarlett Johansson thinks portmanteaus are 'tacky'

Scarlett Johansson, or ScarJo as we like to call her (and which is how she shall forever forth be referred) explained to Glamour magazine, “I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky. It’s lazy and flippant…There’s something insulting about it.”  Well, that's certainly very diplomatic and won't potentially insult anybody.  Nice work, ScarJo!  ScarJo ScarJo ScarJo.

Brad Pitt's production company Plan B Entertainment has secured the rights to Anonymous vs Steubenville  - a Rolling Stone article by David Kushner about the online vigilante Deric Lostutter's role in a landmark rape case. Pitt and the team behind 12 Years A Slave have been planning this movie for a while, though things are now official.

Lorde, Brad Pitt And Other Celebrities Who Say No To Photoshop


Lorde Kate Winslet Brad Pitt Keira Knightley Jessica Simpson Beyonce Knowles

One of the reasons that we love Lorde so much is that she defies the usual standards of celebrity. The 17 year old has previously posted photos of herself on her Instagram account with a caption explaining she is wearing acne cream in the pic.

Recently the ‘Royals’ singer shared two photographs of herself from Lollapalooza music festival in Santiago, Chile.

To illustrate her point, the singer posted two photos of herself performing at one concert on Twitter, one of which had been edited to perfection and the other showed off the young pop star's natural look.

Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck: Gwyneth Paltrow's Relationships Before Chris Martin


Gwyneth Paltrow Ben Affleck Brad Pitt

We were all surprised when Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their separation by way of a post on Paltrow’s Goop website on Tuesday evening. The couple, who have been married for 10 years and had two children together announced they were ‘consciously uncoupling’, and thus the showbiz world began mourning another high profile couple. But for Gwyneth a high profile split is nothing new, actually she’s had her fair share of famous romances.

Gwyneth PaltrowGwyneth Paltrow has announced her 'uncoupling' from Chris Martin

Before there was Chris and before there was Angelina, Hollywood’s hottest couple was Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow. Although now the two might seem like an unlikely pairing, back in the mid nighties they were the hot couple of the moment. These two set out to define the era for star couples, sporting matching cropped blonde hair and sometimes even matching outfits, (too far). They even got engaged! Although they might have seem like a young Hollywood dream come true, sadly it wasn't to be and they split in 1997 after three years of dating. Gwyneth would later take responsibility for the break up, telling Diana Sawyer ‘My kind of internal stuff really tripped up that whole relationship and I felt really responsible, and also like I was the architect of my own misery … I just made a big mess out of it.’.

Brad Pitt And Fellow Producers Made '12 Years A Slave' Their "Mandate"


Brad Pitt

'12 Years A Slave' is the favorite to win Best Picture at tonight's 86th Academy-Awards, and its raw depiction of an African American's journey from being a freeman who was kidnapped and forced into slavery, has a lasting effect on the audience.

Due to the fact that it is based on a true story, the memoirs of Solomon Northup, is a harrowing reminder of America's dark history, but this also made the filmmakers feel a strong sense of responsibility to create the best film they could.

Matthew McConaughey Was Far From First Choice In 'Dallas Buyers Club' Casting [Trailer]


Matthew Mcconaughey Jared Leto Brad Pitt Ryan Gosling Gael Garcia Bernal

Matthew Mcconaughey may have pulled off the performance of his career in Dallas Buyers Club but the actor apparently had to convince the movie's directors that he was the right guy to take on the role of entrepreneurial AIDS victim Ron Woodroof.

Matthew McConaughey Was Far From First Choice To Play Ron Woodroof.

Looking at the series of cheesy rom-coms that McConaughey has padded out his career with, it's fairly easy to see why director Jean-Marc Vallee was at first sceptical about casting the classically handsome, all-American beefcake actor. "I wasn't sure about Matthew at first," said Vallee to THR. "Mr. The Most Handsome Man With Muscles? Then I met him and found a man who really wanted to change perceptions and have new challenges in his career."

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may have gone home without any individual BAFTAs at last night's British Academy Film Awards but the Hollywood power couple have been two of the most talked-about attendees since the glittering ceremony. The actors turned up at the event in the matching attire of tuxedos and black ties and Angelina served as her fiance's touch-up stylist, tweaking his bowtie on the red carpet.

Whilst Brad kept his look polished and smart, Angelina opted to dress her look down with an open-necked shirt, loose silk tie and tousled hair.

George Clooney Reveals His Long-Running Prank Of Imitating Brad Pitt


George Clooney John Krasinski Brad Pitt Matt Damon

George Clooney has revealed his obsession for sending cards and letters supposedly from his celebrity pals, all began in 2010 at John Krasinski's wedding. The reveal came in light of Matt Damon's discovery that the 'Ocean's Eleven' actor had been posting stationary with his name on to various people in and around Hollywood, yet apparently, Brad Pitt was the first person to fall victim to the practical joke.

"You sent me a thank you gift card" said Clooney, "it actually said Brad Pitt on it, which set the wheels in motion... I've been sending letters to people as Brad Pitt for four years. Don Cheadle was trying to do the Miles Davis story and I sent him a letter from Brad, because Brad produces films, and I said, 'You know, I'm producing this Miles Davis/Charlie Parker thing and Jamie Foxx is gonna play Miles Davis, but you'd be great as Charlie Parker?'"

As far as careers in acting go, Lupita Nyong'o has had one of the most impressive yet equally short stints in the spotlight. Barely out of her twenties, the actress has excelled in her first movie role in Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave. Nyong'o is picking up awards and new nominations for her supporting role alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender at an alarming rate with the golden prize - an Oscar - comfortably within her reach.
