If successful, she'll be starring alongside Ellen Page and Diego Luna in the re-make of the 1990 sci-fi classic.
‘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.

The drama Freeheld tells the true story of police officer Laurel Hester.
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.

Patrick Stewart was seen arriving at the world premiere of 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York alongside his wife Sunny Ozell. He plays the much-loved character of Professor X in the movie, whose younger self is portrayed by James McAvoy.
Hugh Jackman had a huge smile on his face as he arrived at the world premiere of 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York, despite the bandage on his nose which was placed there following treatment to remove a basal-cell carcinoma (a type of skin cancer). He thrilled photographers but posing WITH them as well as for them and struck an appropriate pose by crossing his arms in an 'X' sign.
Laverne Cox and Jennifer Lopez were just a couple of the honorees at last night's ceremony.
Last night’s GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) awards were filled with top notch moments. Orange Is The New Black star Laverne Cox was presented with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which is given to a gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender member of the entertainment community.
Cox is one of the most promising new faces to emerge from Netflix's critically acclaimed Orange Is The New Black.
Cox is a well known transgender activist. On Orange Is the New Black, she plays Sophia Burset, a transwoman sent to prison for credit card fraud. She has been a regular presence at the GLAAD awards since 2009, when she won the award for Oustanding Reality Series for I Want to Work for Diddy. Cox was presented with her award by the ever lovely Ellen Page, who came out as gay at the Human Rights Campaign’s Time To Thrive Conference earlier this year.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is getting closer.
Fox has released the X-Men: Days of Future Past behind-the-scenes featurette as it prepares its promotional material ahead of the movie's release on May 23. Mainly featuring Bryan Singer explaining his reasons for getting back into the director's chair for the latest entry in the long-running superhero series, the new clip also features some pretty neat looking footage from the blockbuster.
Ian McKellen in X-Men: Days of Future Past
Singer's first two movies starring Hugh Jackman paved the way for the younger cast (McAvoy, Fassbender, Lawrence etc) to take a hold of the franchise, though the filmmaker is delighted to be forging both teams together for Days of Future Past.
Ellen Page - Ellen Page arrives at Los Angeles International Airport. On Valentine's Day (14Feb14) while speaking at the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, Page revealed that she was gay. - Los Angeles, California, United States - Tuesday 18th February 2014
The 26-year-old actor hopes to make a difference with her honesty
Ellen Page, who famously portrayed the pregnant teenager Juno in the movie of the same name, has come out as a lesbian, admitting her “spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered,” due to hiding her sexuality, according to The Telegraph.
Ellen Page has helped hundreds of non-famous people be themselves with her statement
She made her statement on Friday at a Las Vegas conference for gay teens, and in doing so, provides another important step for the acceptance of gay culture within mainstream society. "I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission," the 26-year-old actress said in a speech at the Time to Thrive conference sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign.

Uploaded earlier today, the trailer for the next X Men movie will blow you away
X-Men: Days of Future Past won't be out until May next year, but after you see the first trailer for it you'll wish that you could jump forward and dive right into it now. In it, we get our first real glimpse at our mutant heroes and villains, from past and future, who must bend the space time continuum to make the future a better day for mutants throughout the Marvel Universe.
The past (McAvoy) and present (Stewart) Xaviers meet face to face in the trailer
Based on the much lauded and incredibly popular (if you happen to be into comic books at least) 'Days of Future Past' storyline from the Uncanny X-Men, the move will unite the characters from the first X-Men movies with those from 2011's X-Men: First Class, with the present day X-Men having to go back in time to prevent the ongoing war against mutants, who are being hunted down by the robotic Sentinels. Are you still with us? Good, because it gets even more complicated.
The ambitious game had more to give, the critics feel.
Unfortunately, despite the hype, Beyond Two Souls hasn’t managed to successfully bridge the proverbial gap between video game and film. Many titles have attempting such a plug, with some getting closer than others - even Two Souls – but it’s the chasm remains. Hang on, though, do we really need to bridge that gap?
Ellen Page in Two Souls
Beyond Two Soul’s hype stemmed from a number of facets. Not only does it feature two prominent actors in Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe, but it was also entered into the Tribeca Film Festival. This lead to a marketing campaign centered on the convergence of the two mediums. But it’s not as though Two Souls is the first game to do this.
Khloe Kardashian took her mind off the on-going drama surrounding her husband Lamar Odom by partying with family and friends, including Katy Perry, during a Labor Day celebration
As the trouble surrounding her husband intensifies, Khloe Kardashian took a much needed break from her usual life by partying hard on Labor Day with friends at an exclusive Los Angeles party. She was one of many famous faces at the private house party, hosted by Katy Perry, but probably the only one there going through such a tumulus period in their love life.
Khloe and Lamar are rumoured to be over
The Hollywood party provided the perfect break fo Khloe, who posted a snap of herself and two friends on her Instagram during the nights proceedings, as she tried to put her marriage woes behind her on one of the last days of summer (2 September). Khloe is rumoured to be splitting with her husband Lamar following his ongoing drug problems and reluctance to enter rehab in order to control his apparent addictions.
X-Men put on a huge panel at Comic-Con 2013 with each cast member and writer present to answer the burning questions of the franchise's fans.
The X-Men stars who were present at this year's monumental Comic-Con included writers Simon Kinberg and Omar Sy, as well as Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, director Bryan Singer, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicolas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Evan Peters, with producers Lauren Shula Donner and Hutch Parker.
Hugh Jackman: Always Ready To Break Into Song.
Hugh Jackman, AKA Wolverine, took centre stage as arguably the most memorable and distinctive character in the long-running franchise. Describing his role as Wolverine as "the job that has defined [his]career...every day [he's] grateful," he added "I thank my lucky stars" before he and X-Men director Bryan Singer engaged in a spot of snuggling.
It's unlikely to win many major awards, though 'Touchy Feely' is likely to be a perfectly watchable indie flick.
The trailer for Touchy Feeling, the new indie-flick written and directed by Humpday's Lynn Shelton, has rolled out online. It stars Rosemarie DeWitt as Abby, a well-respected massage therapist who lives life to the fullest, while her quiet brother Paul struggles with his angst-ridden teenage daughter, played by Ellen Page.
Things get a little complicated when Abby's boyfriend offers her a home at his place and things go from bad to worse when she finds herself unable to face a new client having developed a phobia of skin-to-skin contact. Oh, and Abby's niece develops a crush on her boyfriend and attempts to seduce him. OH NO SHE DIDN'T.
Meanwhile, brother Paul's life begins to turn around when a patient claims his healing hands cured his toothache. Suddenly, his waiting room is packed, though can his newfound 'magic touch' help his sister Abby regain the fun in her life?
Willem Dafoe will feature alongside Ellen Page in new video game from David Cage
Willem Dafoe has been unveiled as the co-star to Ellen Page’s character in the new videogame Beyond: Two Souls. A trailer for David Cage’s new console adventure reveals that Dafoe plays the role of Nathan Dawkins, who meets the younger version of Ellen Page’s character and shows an interest in the demons that she has in her life. In the trailer, on YouTube, Dafoe says to a rather cute young Page that his job is to “study… strange events … and then try to explain them.” He studies a disturbing picture that the young child has drawn, causing her to comment on the ‘monsters’ that haunt her.
Another video shows a behind-the scenes clip of Dafoe wearing the performance capture suit, explaining how his character not only acts as a father figure to Ellen Page, but how he also manipulates the ‘gifted’ child for his own purposes. Page can also be seen in the clip, with her character demonstrating against the pressures being placed upon her “I just want to go out… and be like other girls my age,” she pines.
Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page - Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page, Wednesday 6th June 2012 arrive for Game Four of the 2012 Stanley Cup Final between the Los Angeles Kings and the New Jersey Devils at Staples Center
Frank (Wilson) only has two moments in his life when he felt happy: first was his wedding to Sarah (Tyler) and second was when he helped a cop foil a crime.
So when Sarah leaves him for the charismatic criminal Jacques (Bacon), Frank turns to crimefighting, with a little inspiration from Libby (Page), who works in a comic book shop. Frank's super alter-ego is the Crimson Bolt, smacking criminals with a pipe-wrench. And when Libby figures it out, she becomes his sidekick Boltie, helping him launch an all-out offensive to free Sarah from Jacques' control.

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.

We have an excellent featurette about Chris Nolan's (The Dark Knight, Batman Begins, Momento) latest movie Inception. In the video both Chris Nolan, the director, and Leonardo Dicaprio (Shutter Island, The Departed, Gangs of New York), plays Dom Cobb the lead role, are interviewed about making the film, it's many locations in different countries around the world, the challenges of transferring the dreams of a human mind to the cinema screen and how it was working with each other.

In Bodeen, Texas, Bliss (Page) is the rebellious teen daughter of a proud society mom (Harden) and a laid-back, beer-loving dad (Stern). Then with her best pal (Shawkat) she discovers the roller derby in Austin, where her surprisingly strong audition catches the notice of the coach (Wilson) as well as the stars (including accident-prone Barrymore, wacky Wiig, sassy Eve and tough-girl Bell). Renamed Babe Ruthless, she joins the Hurl Scouts team, discovering that some things are more important than beating their archrivals for the championship, the Holy Rollers (led by Lewis).

Though fitfully discombobulated, the song remains the same. Tracey's parents are two hyper-depressed louts who scream, bicker, and wonder why their daughter can't be just a normal happy teenager. Tracey's boyfriend is Billy Zero, a botched attempt at fertilizing Morrisey's eggs with Gary Numan's seed. Tracey has flourishes of fantasia that paint Billy and her as the leaders of an almost-listenable punk band called Teenage Pussy that gets Album of the Year from Mojo magazine. She has a female psychiatrist that faintly resembles the Screaming Man from Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, and her entire school thinks it's a real riot that she has small boobs. Where am I?

Entering into the Wetherhold house, ostensibly to chauffer the belligerent prof after a seizure suspends his driver's license, is Lawrence's laid-back, semi-transient adopted brother Chuck. Chuck is played by Thomas Haden Church in a clear and mostly successful post-Sideways bid to establish future laid-back semi-transients as "the Thomas Haden Church part." Church and Page are especially fun to watch and, especially, listen to: Church's sort of deadpan surfer growl and Page's nasal precociousness in a vocal duel. That they recall their previous roles only hastens our desire to spend time with them.

When this Argento-loving firecracker gets knocked up by Paulie Bleeker (the invaluable Michael Cera), her rhythms don't change much; a big cookie consumed simultaneously with a lamb kebob seems like something she'd eat even if her hormones weren't all akimbo. After chatting up an ex-pill popper/current pro-lifer, her attempts to procure an abortion are thwarted by the thought of her baby's tapping fingernails and the sterilized miasma of the clinic's waiting room. Hastily, she opts for an old-fashioned, at-birth adoption with no frills. Her parents, played lovingly by J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney, are concerned but surprisingly level-headed, even if they wished she had just gotten a DUI instead of getting knocked up.

We've witnessed, this summer, how fresh blood can rejuvenate a franchise entering its third installment. Weeks ago, Paramount handed the Mission: Impossible keys to J.J. Abrams (Alias) and clicked their heels when the inventive television director breathed new life into a financially healthy but creatively stagnant series.
Fox attempts a similar trick with its valuable X-Men venture, though in honesty the studio had little choice. After conceiving two blockbuster films that delighted both critics and fans, director Bryan Singer walked away from the X universe for the chance to direct the next Man of Steel movie (his Superman Returns arrives in theaters next month). Fox wouldn't let Singer's exit kill its golden-egg-laying goose, so the studio plopped oft-maligned hired gun filmmaker Brett Ratner (Rush Hour) behind the camera and prayed that he wouldn't botch The Last Stand, reportedly the final installment.

The group's fist-in-the-air acronym is SPARK (Street People Armed with Radical Knowledge), and the creed they rally around is "intellectual self-defense" -- a catchphrase that should ring a bell with anyone familiar with the 1992 Noam Chomsky documentary Manufacturing Consent. Apart from weaning addicts off drugs, SPARK's shaven-headed principal members, none of whom apparently owns a shirt, operate with no bigger political purpose in mind. Largely, the group exists as a generic narrative device -- an aimless, visionless organization of Murray's concoction solely to run Sherry through her paces.
