Nina Dobrev Ellen Page Diego Luna

‘The Vampire Diaries’ former star Nina Dobrev is “in talks” to feature in the rumoured re-boot of cult sci-fi movie Flatliners, according to new reports.

Movie news website Deadline claims that the 27 year old actress, who played the role of Elena Gilbert for six seasons of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ until last year, is negotiating with Sony about landing the role of Marlo, described as an “overachiever at the top of her class” in a reported re-make of the 1990 thriller. If successful, she’ll be joining Ellen Page and Diego Luna in the film.

Freeheld Is Important For Moore And Page


Ellen Page Julianne Moore

In 2002 Laurel was diagnosed with terminal cancer and had to fight for a change in the law so that her pension benefits would go to her civil partner Stacie Andree. This was a landmark case in marriage equality law in America.

Julianne Moore and Ellen Page play Laurel and Stacie in the film, and understood the importance of recreating real people on-screen. "You have a responsibility to that person, to become as close to them as possible," Moore says.

Her biggest upcoming project is X Men: Days of Future Past, in which the 26-year-old plays Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat - a mutant with the ability to phase through solid objects and a part Page thought she’d never play again.

Jane Lynch To Ellen Page: "Don't Be So Hard On Yourself."


Ellen Page Jane Lynch

Celebrities have rushed to congratulate Ellen Page on her coming out announcement from Friday. That includes Glee actress, famed comedienne and LGBT+ advocate Jane Lynch, who had some additional words of wisdom for Page. Lynch, who has been out for the entirety of her career, had this to say to the 26-year-old (half Lynch’s age) actress (via People): "When I was younger, I lied by omission. She should give herself a break and not call it 'lying'. "

Lynch is speaking from experience, when she says the younger actress shouldn't be so hard on herself.

This refers to Page’s touching speech at HRC’s Time To Thrive conference on Friday, where the younger actress declared: “I’m tired of hiding and tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered.

In a post-apocalyptic world where mutants are now scarce, Charles Xavier must convince Wolverine to travel back in time to warn Xavier's younger self about their impending disaster-struck world.

The East Review


Very Good

Despite a bunch of cold characters and a deeply contrived plot, this film is so infused with hot topicality that we are held in its grip all the way through. The issue is corporate irresponsibility and grass-roots activism, both of which feel ripped straight from the headlines to give the movie an edgy, almost documentary urgency. On the other hand, it's nearly impossible to get involved in the story's inter-personal dramas.

Director Batmanglij is reteaming with Sound of My Voice actress-cowriter Marling, who this time plays Jane, a corporate-security spy assigned by her shark-like boss (Clarkson) to infiltrate the eco-terrorism group The East. The goal is to prevent them from attacking any of her clients. It takes Jane awhile to worm her way into the anarchists' inner sanctum, where she immediately finds an affinity with leader Benji (Skarsgard), medically trained Doc (Kebbell) and flamboyant Luca (Fernandez). It takes longer to warm to the prickly Izzy (Page), but eventually Jane finds herself part of the core team, invited to participate in a series of jams in which The East gives company bosses a taste of their own toxic medicine.

In the cast of a pharmaceutical giant, this is quite literally the case: they infect the executive (Ormond) with the dangerous drug she's selling to the developing world. And the gang also stages assaults on oil companies in ways that are eerily easy for us to identify with, because the activists are making an important point. Indeed, we never really doubt where the filmmakers' sympathies lie: even if their actions are illegal and rather nasty, these "terrorists" are the good guys. At least this moral complexity gives the film a brainy kick.

Ellen Page Isn't Chuffed About 'The Last Of Us' Likeness


Ellen Page Ashley Johnson

Canadian actress Ellen Page, known for her roles in Juno and Inception, took part in a recent Reddit 'Ask Me Anything' session whereby fans can ask their heroes questions.

Fan 'MozeoSLT' decided to question the actress regarding her first upcoming video game appearance in Beyond: Two Souls, as well as the significant likeness between her and survival horror action The Last of Us game character, 'Ellie':

"This has almost certainly been made clear to you several times, but are you aware how much you look like Ellie from "The Last of Us," a video game which came out about a week ago. She even sounds like you. So much so that almost everyone assumed it was you playing the role. Which leads me to my questions:How did you like playing the role of a video game character when doing "Beyond: Two Souls?" Do you prefer live action? Have you seen any footage of "The Last of Us" and would you have taken the role as Ellie if approached?"

Touchy Feely Trailer


Abby is a particularly well-rated massage therapist who enjoys living life to the fullest while her quiet and correct brother Paul is the opposite with his failing dental practise and an awkward teenage daughter to look after. Abby needs a new place to live and when her boyfriend offers her a home at his place, things start to get complicated for her. On a regular day at work, she finds herself unable to face her new client having developed a phobia of skin-to-skin contact which not only puts her career in the gutter, but also drastically affects her relationship with her boyfriend. Meanwhile, her niece Jenny develops a crush on him and attempts to seduce him despite his love for Abby. Paul's life has also taken a dramatic change after a patient claimed that Paul's healing hands cured his toothache, leading to a much fuller waiting room at his surgery. But will his new found magic touch help Abby regain her life back? 

'Touchy Feely' is the hearting-tugging drama about the unpredictability of our futures and the importance of family support. Directed and written by Lynn Shelton ('My Effortless Brilliance', Humpday', 'Your Sister's Sister'), it's a movie that will see a few laughs, a few sighs and definitely a few tears.

Ellen Page Stalker Who Threatened To Kill Her Ordered To Stay Away


Ellen Page Alexander Skarsgard

Star of Juno and Hard Candy, Ellen Page has been being harassed by a crazed stalker, but has won out after a judge finally ordered the man stay away from Page and not contact her in any way for the following three years. 

As TMZ reported: "According to the LAPD, the threats also coincided with a creepy telephone call received by the non-profit that organizes the LA Film Festival, where Ellen's... movie To Rome with Love premiered on June 14th. The LAPD claims the caller promised to go to the festival and 'kill Page.'"

The fan also used Twitter to contact and harass her, sending tweets such as: "I'm going to murder Ellen Page. She's dead." And "Ellen Page if you continue to date Alexander [Skarsgard] I will K-1-L-L you in public in then ext year . Be it in a club, in a restaurant, or when you're signing autographs." The tweets have been removed since, reports Inquisitr.

To Rome With Love Review


Very Good
After Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen remains in a cheery European mode for another breezy comedy tinged with magical realism. This one's actually four separate stories that are very loosely interwoven as people struggle with the unpredictability of romance and fame. And like Midnight in Paris, it shows off Rome in the most beautiful light imaginable.

Baldwin plays an architect who returns to his student stomping grounds and meets Jack (Eisenberg), who seems to be living his old life, even as he falls for a friend (Page) of his girlfriend (Gerwig). Meanwhile, there's Leopoldo (Benigni), a dull businessman who suddenly becomes a celebrity for no reason he can see, is pursued everywhere by the paparazzi and starts to enjoy the high life. Across town, Jerry and Phyllis (Allen and Davis) arrive to meet the fiance (Parenti) of their daughter (Pill). Then Jerry pushes a future in-law (Armiliato) into becoming the latest opera sensation. Finally, a young couple arrives from the country to start a new life in the city, but the husband (Tiberi) ends up having a farcical day out with a sexy prostitute (Cruz) while the wife (Mastronardi) meets her favourite actor (Albanese).

To Rome With Love Trailer


Woody Allen takes us on a romp around yet another beautiful European city with his latest film To Rome With Love. Set in one of the most beautiful and romantic cites in the world (unsurprisingly) Rome, the film is broken down into four parts and the tale follows the escapades and relationships of holiday makers and local residents alike, each story individually unravels and gives us a glimpse into their -generally complicated & quirky- lives.

Inception Review


Essential
Nolan pulls us into another fiendishly entertaining scenario, engaging our brains while taking us on a thrilling ride. And while the mind-bending story might not be as cerebral as it seems, it completely envelops us.

Cobb (DiCaprio) invades people's dreams for a living, stealing ideas with the help of his sidekick Arthur (Gordon-Levitt). But a new client (Watanabe) wants him to try inception instead: implanting an idea in the mind of media heir Fischer (Murphy). So Cobb hires a new architect (Page) and two other skilled experts (Hardy and Rao) to create an elaborately layered dreamworld for the reverse heist. The problem is that Cobb's wife (Cotillard) is lurking in this alternate reality and could bring the whole plan crashing down around them.

Hard Candy Review


Excellent
After chatting and flirting online, Hayley and Jeff decide to make the jump to real life. They meet up at a coffee shop and trade charged banter, each one doing a little dance to intimate that they are interested without making it too overt or aggressive. It's a courtship ritual between two together people who spark immediately, so they quickly shift locations to Jeff's swanky house in the hills above Los Angeles.So begins Hard Candy; it's not some feature-length ad for Match.com, nor the cozy start to a cyberspace romantic comedy, but rather it's something far, far more icky. See, Jeff is 32; Hayley is 14. Think that's unsettling? Just wait.Haley, as played by a truly talented Ellen Page, looks so young that her androgyny isn't an aesthetic choice, but the result of a body not yet having developed into adulthood. There is literally no escaping how young this girl is, yet she speaks with such unsentimental intelligence and charm that she goes far past precociousness and into genuine maturity. Patrick Wilson's Jeff is confusing in his own way - he's such a nice guy, so easygoing and normal and generally appealing. He makes all the right protests, says all the right things, has all the right humility. As written, their flirtation is a suitably awkward and genuinely likable opening to a sweet, burgeoning relationship. Except the girl is in middle school. So it is all kinds of wrong.The pedophilia angle is immensely disquieting, to be sure, but then it gets worse. Because Hayley is not some innocent fly being lured into the spider's den; she's actually a very calculating young woman with some brutal, well thought-out notions of punishment. Things get harder to take as layers of guilt and abhorrent behaviors pile atop one another for both of them. She's clearly a very twisted and disturbed young woman with some deeply wrong revenge fantasies, but... he's a pedophile. There's no safe place to lay your loyalties on this one.Hard Candy heavily relies on the strength of its two actors, since the entire film comprises these two slowly and relentlessly stripping one another bare. And it's a boon that both stars are quite stellar. Page is fantastic, managing to be both vulnerable and vicious - often simultaneously. And Wilson never defaults to merely playing the victim; he always has more secrets and shame festering under his surface. Director David Slade, largely a veteran of assorted music videos, echoes the claustrophobia of the script with his affinity for extreme tight shots and artfully invasive camera work throughout. All the close-up work forces a reluctant intimacy with the characters, neither of whom are people you want to be particularly near to, which further blankets the film with tension.This is not to say that Hard Candy doesn't have its share of weak spots - the screenplay, by Brian Nelson, is oddly reliant on the unnecessary device/contrivance of Jeff's ex-girlfriend, and the schemes and plans Hayley has in place are, once you step back, so over the top they are nearly laughable. This girl's thirst for vengeance is a deeply rooted flair for the dramatic. And the conclusion, when it finally comes after the numerous twists and turns, left me somewhat unsatisfied.But in reality, the largest liability for the film is its profoundly disturbing nature. This is, after all, a protracted revenge fantasy layered on top of pedophilia. It's relentless and nerve-wracking and squirm-inducing. It's the movie where someone says, "Was it good?" and they are met with a long silence before a hesitant "Yeeaahhhh..." Because you don't like this movie; like a Todd Solondz film, it isn't built to be liked. It's there to be experienced, tolerated, and appreciated for the wretched, well-executed, difficult, artful, and appalling creation that it is.She wants candy.
