Emily Eavis: Glastonbury Acts Like Ed Sheeran Help Raise '£2million Every Year' For Charity


Kiefer Sutherland Busted Sophie Ellis-Bextor Birdy Scouting For Girls

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has praised Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters and Radiohead for donating their feed to a £2million charity pot.

Headliners of the iconic music festival miss out on huge performance fees in favour of allowing Emily and her dad, Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis, to make a whopping donation to good causes every year and she says it is the ''absolute, most paramount'' aspect of the music extravaganza.

Speaking to BBC Radio 6 music, she said: ''The charity thing is the absolute, most paramount thing of the biggest importance, really. The most important part of the festival is the fact that we can give that money to charity. It makes it all totally worthwhile. We try to give £2million per year, and on a wet year it's harder because it costs more, but we give as close to £2million as we can.''

Louis Lombardi, Kiefer Sutherland's '24' Co-star, Slams Freddie Prinze Jr.'s Ruthless Diss


Kiefer Sutherland

The recent feud Freddie Prinze Jr., started with Kiefer Sutherland has started to spread, and another star of the Fox hit show '24,' Louis Lombardi, couldn't help but join the affray, but it is very clear whose back he has got.

Louis Lombardi
Lombardi weighed in on the Freddie/Kiefer feud 

Freddie garnered a lot of attention when attending this past weekend's Comic-Con in San Diego for publically slamming Sutherland's work ethic when they acted together on series 8 of '24' in 2010, after explaining why he hasn't been seen in the public eye for quite some time.

Freddie Prinze Jr. Almost Quit The Business After Working With "24" Co-Star Kiefer Sutheland


Freddie Prinze Jr Kiefer Sutherland

Kiefer Sutherland recently received the worst kind of negative review – one from a fellow actor. Freddie Prinze Jr., who co-starred with Sutherland on the recently revived 24, recalls that his unpleasant on-set relationship with Sutherland almost caused the younger actor to leave the business for good.

 Freddie Prinze Jr.
FPJ has since found his footing, but he had a few rough years after 24.

"I did '24,' it was terrible," the 38-year-old actor told ABC News about his experience on the hit Fox series in 2010. "I hated every moment of it."

"24: Live Another Day" Recap: It's 3:00 PM And You Can Finally Catch Your Breath


Kiefer Sutherland

It’s Hour 5 on 24 and this week, there was a lot less Jack Bauer to be seen for most of the episode. While it’s clear that Kiefer Sutherland is the show, episodes like this offer a nice glimpse of the ensemble cast, which has been consistently strong since the revival.

Jack Is Back! But Could ’24’ Keep On Living After ‘Live Another Day’?


Kiefer Sutherland

Jack Bauer came bounding back to our screens last night in ’24:Live Another Day’, but is the limited event series a final farewell to our hero? Maybe not, as co-creator Robert Cochran has been telling E! news that this might not be the end of Jack Bauer.

Kiefer SutherlandJack is back everyone!

Speaking at the show’s premiere, Cochran said that if ‘Live Another Day’ is successful we could expect to see more Bauer on our screens in the future.  "I think if this does well, I can't see any reason not to do another 12,” he told the news channel.

Out This Weekend: 'Pompeii' Divides The Critics


Kit Harington Emily Browning Kiefer Sutherland

As you can probably tell by the title, Pompeii is set in the Roman city of Pompeii in the year AD 79. It tells the story of Milo, played by Kit Harington of Game of Thrones fame. Milo is slave turned invincible gladiator who is forced into action to save the one he loves while the ancient city burns around him.

Pompeii Kit Harington at Milo in Pompeii

The fact that he’s invincible already raises question marks surrounding the plot’s plausibility. Of course, a film set in Pompeii will always have a certain amount of creative licence, but the audience still need to be able to put things together… The critics were equally unsure of Pompeii’s appeal, culminating in a measly 40% on Rotten Tomatoes. There are more reviews to come, but one gets the impression that score won’t be beaten.

24's Back And Kiefer Sutherland Is Terrified


Kiefer Sutherland

It’s been four years since the thrill ride that was 24 graced our screens; the multi-award winning drama was famous for its tense nature, and hooked fans for 8 gripping seasons. Now it’s back, and the show’s central star Kiefer Sutherland is terrified of making the return.

Simply Heroic: Angelina Jolie stunned the world this week after revealing she had undergone a double mastectomy in order to reduce her risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer. The Oscar-winning actress lost her mother to cancer and was keen to limit the chances of the same thing happening to her brood.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist Review


Good

A terrific story is compromised by the demands of commercial filmmaking, adding action-thriller scenes to what should be an introspective drama while distractingly beefing up side-roles for American stars. But at the centre is another superb performance from Riz Ahmed (Four Lions), who again takes a complex, challenging approach to the subject of terrorism.

The narrative is fragmented into flashbacks as Changez (Ahmed) tells his story to an American journalist (Schreiber) in Pakistan while a tense hostage situation swirls all around them. Years earlier, Changez was a high-flying Pakistani student, graduating from Princeton and landing a prestigious job on Wall Street when an executive (Sutherland) recognises his talent. He also has a sexy artist girlfriend (Hudson). But all of this is shaken after the 9/11 attacks, when he is harassed by police and immigration officials. Fundamentally changed, he returns to Lahore to become a lecturer in violent uprisings. But this makes the CIA think that he's become a terrorist himself. Perhaps he has.

The various strands of the story are intriguing, and the actors are all watchable as they add layers to Changez's overall story. But the jumbled structure of the film reduces the narrative to a series of seemingly unrelated scenes. Hudson and Sutherland are solid but add little beyond their characters' stereotypical American reactions to Changez's decisions. The always superb Schreiber is better used as a more shady figure. But other characters vanish just when they get interesting, such as Changez's parents, played by acting legends Puri and Azmi.

Networks To Announce Fall Line-Ups, Will 'CSI:NY,' 'Touch' And 'Go On' Survive?


Kiefer Sutherland Matthew Perry CBS NBC ABC Fox

Crime drama CSI NY, Matthew Perry's 'Go On' and Fox's 'Touch,' starring Kiefer Sutherland are amongst the television shows in danger of being cancelled when the networks announce their fall line-ups in the coming weeks. The clock is very much ticking, and it's getting louder with every passing second.

It's a familiar Hollywood plot, with actors, producers, writers and directors waiting nervously to hear whether their shows have made it onto the fall line-ups. If the ratings are not there, the show disappears. Simple. NBC unveils its plans on Sunday May 12, while Fox announce on Monday, ABC Tuesday and CBS on Wednesday. CW fans have to wait until Thursday for that announcement. 

As reported by the Plain Dealer, we already know that Animal Practice, Made in Jersey, Last Resort and The Mob Doctor are getting in, though there are several more high profile shows that are in danger of being handed a pink slip. They include the CBS crime dramas CSI:NY and Criminal Minds. Ratings suggest the latter might survive, but CSI looks to be a goner. A year ago, it was suggested that NY might get cancelled and CSI: Miami could survive though the reverse happened.

Melancholia Review


Excellent
Von Trier continues to challenge audiences with his bold, bleak storytelling.

As always, he creates a stunning visual film experience full of raw, wrenching performances. And he tackles themes that are so big that we're not quite sure what to make of it in the end.

Justine (Dunst) is feeling a bit detached on the day of her wedding to the doting Michael (Alexander Skarsgard), and her brother-in-law John (Sutherland) is annoyed that she's not enjoying the expensive party he's staging. Her sister Claire (Gainsbourg) is more understanding, even when events take a few strange turns. Later, the shattered Justine will become the voice of reason when the planet Melancholia, which has been hiding behind the sun, heads towards Earth in a dramatic fly-by. Now it's Claire who's overwhelmed with moodiness, fearing for her young son (Spurr).

Marmaduke Trailer


Marmaduke is perhaps the world's most famous Great Dane, he was originally brought to life in a newspaper comic strip drawn in the 1950's by Brad Anderson. Now Marmaduke is set to make his motion picture debut. When the Winslow family (along with Marmaduke and their cat Carlos) make a move to LA, Marmaduke pictures the perfect life from now on, after all - LA is home to some of the best dog parks in the world! However, when he arrives, the parks are great but how could any dog from outside LA deal with all the rivalry between Mutts vs. Pedigrees! It might take Marmaduke a little longer to find his 'pawing' than he first thought.

Emily Browning To Star In 'Alice In Wonderland With Guns'


Emily Browning Amanda Seyfried Dreamworks Kiefer Sutherland

Australian actress Emily Browning is set to take the lead role in SUCKER PUNCH, it has been revealed.

The part was set to be filled by MAMMA MIA! star Amanda Seyfried, but it seems she has now dropped out of the role.

Sucker Punch, which is helmed by WATCHMEN director Zack Synder, is described as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns".

Zack also co-wrote the script with Steve Shibuya and work on the production is set to start in September of this year.

Emily, who was last seen in horror film The Uninvited, first hit the big screen with a leading part in LEMONY SNICKET'S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS.

Meanwhile, Watchmen has been replaced by the new Dreamworks animation MONSTERS VS ALIENS as the film with the highest grossing weekend in the US this year.

The superhero flick clocked up $55.2 million (£39 million), compared to the $58.2 million made by the Kiefer Sutherland voiced hit.

Monsters Vs. Aliens Review


OK
It's a title that promises much more than it could ever truly deliver. It plays on B-movie fans' wildest dreams but offers them something much less successful. It comes from Dreamworks, which means it will either be completely faithful to its unusual source material (a la Kung Fu Panda's homage to the films of Asian martial arts experts the Shaw brothers) or rely on the tired, post-Shrek formula of animation artistry meshed with tired pop culture quips. So what, exactly, does the latest CG spectacle Monsters vs. Aliens truly have to offer? Sadly, it's a little bit of moviemaking magic surrounded by loads and loads of scripted stupidity.

While planning for her wedding to local newsman Derek Dietl (voice of Paul Rudd), Susan Murphy (Reese Witherspoon) is hit by an enormous meteorite containing a mysterious alien element. It instantly causes her to grow in size to gigantic proportions. Naturally, this leads the government, under the director of General W. R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland) to capture the gal and take her back to his top secret compound. There, he keeps other so-called "monsters" -- mad scientist turned bug Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie), an aquatic fish man known as the Missing Link (Will Arnett), a blob like biological accident named B.O.B. (Seth Rogen), and Insectosaurus, a building-sized pest with an ear-shattering scream. As America's first line of defense against trouble, the team is put to the test when extraterrestrial tyrant Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson) arrives, ready to take over Earth.

Mirrors Review


Weak
Writer-director Alexandre Aja, along with his co-writer Gregory Levasseur, had been cruising along, showing promise within the horror genre, until (cue overwrought score) the mirrors got hold of him. Their film Mirrors is another remake of an Asian horror movie imbuing everyday objects with ghostly menace. In this case, the objects are, yes, mirrors -- specifically (but not limited to) the mirrors in a run-down New York department store. Of course, jump-scares involving sudden appearances in mirrors have been a cheap horror tactic for years, so this is a little like making a horror movie about murderous loud noises.

Ben (Kiefer Sutherland) is a newly-hired night security guard at that department store, and during his patrols he's been seeing disturbing stuff in the mirrors -- charred bodies, horrible wounds, people screaming for help. This seems like an excellent time to slack a bit at work and hang back in his security trailer, but Ben persists with an investigation.

Dark City Review


Extraordinary
For all of the acclaim Dark City received after its initial, disastrous theatrical release in 1998 -- movie-of-the-year and DVD commentary honors from Roger Ebert; cult adoration; an eventual director's cut -- it probably still hasn't reached anywhere close to the number of people who saw, say, The Matrix (released just about a year later). Perhaps this has to do with the way the film shrouds its ideas in noir mystery rather than cyberpunk fashion; if The Matrix turned a broad audience into geeks who wanted to know kung fu, Dark City seemed ready-made for those whose geekery was established, though the film is broad enough to welcome nerds of the film, sci-fi, and perhaps even architecture varieties.

The Matrix is not a random comparison, mind you; the two films toy with similar ideas about the meaning of humanity, memory, and self-perception (they also share a second-unit director, though unless he is a brilliant stealth screenwriter, it is probably a coincidence). Dark City, directed by Alex Proyas, is less thrilling and sleek than its cousin, but equally imaginative, full of twisty images and clever synthesis of the movies that inspired it. It gives geeks a good name.

Bright Lights, Big City Review


OK
As a college student hoping for a career in the "glamorous world of magazine publishing" back in the '80s, I was captivated by Jay McInerney's 1984 novel Bright Lights, Big City, which depicts that world but tears away most of the glamour. Still, it made New York seem tremendously exciting.

The 1988 cinematic version doesn't quite measure up. McInerney may have aspired to be the F. Scott Fitzgerald of his time, the movie suffers from the same fate as the Robert Redford version of The Great Gatsby: miscasting.

The Sentinel (2006) Review


Weak
The Sentinel is one of those movies made for commercials and trailers full of shots of well-dressed Secret Service agents running and impassioned scenes where actors bark out lines like, "He's looking for an ally and the First Lady is a fine one to have." Rarely do these movies translate well into a longer format, and The Sentinel is far from the exception.

Directed by Clark Johnson (he of the awful S.W.A.T.), The Sentinel stars Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland as former friends forced to become allies after a plot reveals an unknown mole inside the Secret Service. Pete Garrison (Douglas) is a veteran agent drawn deeper into the plot after his affair with the President's wife (Kim Basinger, playing the curviest First Lady ever) is revealed, leading investigator David Breckinridge (Sutherland) to turn his attentions to Garrison. Meanwhile, TV's babe of the moment Eva Longoria co-stars as Breckinridge's sexy new partner and Garrison's protégé.

The Right Temptation Review


Weak
Wow, when did Rebecca De Mornay get old? The Right Temptation is hardly a fitting title for so untempting a movie, a ridiculously unbelievable thriller that puts De Mornay in the middle of a scam dreamed up by Dana Delany's troublesome wife to Kiefer Sutherland. From the moment requests "a woman" be put on her P.I. case, you know something's fishy.... The trouble is, the fish is rotten. Kudos to De Mornay's pet pig, though.

The Break Up (1998) Review


Terrible
Pedestrian thriller. Nonsensical and obvious why it went straight to cable, despite a decent cast of stars. What's with Weber's big moustache, anyway?

I Trust You To Kill Me Review


OK
Who knew Keifer Sutherland had his own music label? His Ironworks records signed a band called Rocco DeLuca and the Burden first, a group which I have little doubt you have never heard of.

That's the central concern in the documentary I Trust You to Kill Me (the title is drawn from one of the group's songs), as Sutherland himself takes on the role of band manager for a quick tour through Europe, promoting the band the old-fashioned way, by granting interviews and forcing free tickets upon people he meets in the street.

The Wild Review


Terrible

You will not find a worse movie in Walt Disney's animated canon than The Wild. At the very least, the hyperactive abomination helps us understand why the once-mighty studio shelled out $7.4 billion to acquire Pixar Animation Studios earlier this year. Pixar is a proven hit factory, an imagination emporium responsible for the lucrative Toy Story adventures and the Oscar-winning superhero smash The Incredibles. If The Wild represents all that remains in Disney's think tank, it's now painfully clear that the Mouse House needs Pixar like a table needs legs.

Wild is a high-impact cartoon, the kind that catapults its characters head first into rocks, trees, and other animal's rear ends every time we expect a joke but are met with silence. Like its immediate predecessor, Chicken Little, this meaningless cartoon assumes kids will roar their approval so long as things move extremely fast, crash with teeth-shattering force, and pass gas. Parents lose twice - they must pay hard-earned cash to enter and then endure 90 minutes of noise.

24: Season Four Review


Extraordinary
Before launching with any credibility into my review of 24, I must confess in the church of guilty little pleasures my absolute obsession with the program and the pursuits of its hero, the honorable Mr. Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland). At the mercy of the networks, such devotion and obsession are rewarded with sweaty and torturous weeklong waits. The clock ticks Monday to Sunday with its trademark "beep... beep... beep..." for anxious fans anticipating the coming thrills of a fresh episode. Will the President survive? Will the bomb be launched? Will Michelle end up with Tony? In DVD format, such questions are answered with great expediency, the wait reduced to whatever length of time your anxiety permits, and the resulting real "real time" is the epitome of geekish rushes. 24's fourth season is its best yet and demonstrates most ferociously the brilliance of the program's premise and its suitability to the instantly accessible digital and versatile disc.

Having saved the President from assassination, the country from both nuclear and viral threats, and having been addicted to heroin, lost his wife and had to murder his boss, one understands when in the first moments of season four Jack Bauer is under different employment. No longer at CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) - in fact not even welcome there - Jack is now the chief bodyguard for Secretary of Defense James Heller (William Devane). Jack's love interest for the day, Audrey Raines (Kim Raver), happens to be his boss' daughter, and when dad and daughter are kidnapped, ransomed and threatened with live web-syndicated trial and execution, Bauer must again brace the corridors of CTU and endeavor to save the day, for the fourth time.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me Review


OK
You can almost plot David Lynch's lunacy on a graph. From perfect form in 1990, with the original Twin Peaks TV show, to borderline schizophrenia with the second season in 1991, to absolute lunacy in 1992, with the prequel movie, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.

Filled with non-sequitur imagery and symbolism, Fire ostensibly tells how Laura Palmer came to be wrapped in that sheet of plastic which so fatefully washed ashore in the first episode of the TV series. But Fire doesn't really tell any story at all. There are scenes of exposition, but these are sandwiched between the endless dream sequences, the lunatic characters (like the woman in red and the one-armed man) who appear and vanish just as suddenly, and bonus raunch added just for the purpose of titillating the audience.

Woman Wanted Review


Bad
Four words: "A Kiefer Sutherland film." Ouch, this is one painful experience of a motion picture -- and even Holly Hunter's turn as a maid who eventually falls in love/bed with both a man and his son can't save the picture. Boring as hell and nearly forgotten before the credits even roll.

Very Good
Taking Lives - it's a title to file under the goofy film names category. It's a pretty obvious name for a thriller about a serial killer taking the lives of his victims, but the subtext is meant to describe the killer's desire to live the life of those he has killed... until a new and exciting life peaks his interest. The film's title failed to excite me, but the movie that bears the name surprisingly did.

Going into the screening for Lives, I had some doubts about the film, primarily because Angelina Jolie has never really found a role that fits her. Since her performance in Gia, her film roles have not demanded anything more than her sexuality (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Original Sin). In Taking Lives, Jolie's performance as FBI Profiler Illeana Scott is shockingly credible - though she does find a scene to bare her breasts - Jolie is in full command of her character. Her eyes are always moving, thinking, and analyzing her environment. Even when it appears she's reached a dead-end with her investigation, she lets her senses take over. At night, she eats dinner alone, across the table from crime scene photos she has taped to the opposite chair.

Desert Saints Review


Good
Passable little flick has Sutherland as La Femme Kiefer, a mysterious hitman who picks up a drifter girl (Melora Walters), a pathetic loser who turns out to be anything but. Against any semblance of good judgment, he takes her on as a partner... only to have her turn out to be an FBI agent on his case. Or is she??? It's a capable thriller but hardly a standout -- there's basically only one more plot twist and it's not all that unexpected. Walters is getting too old to play the hottie vixen... and come to think of it, so is Sutherland.

Picking Up The Pieces Review


Bad
Normally, I'd say any movie that features Woody Allen as a homocidal maniac is okay in my book, if only Picking Up the Pieces didn't bore you to tears en route to the funny stuff, which consists solely of Allen's spare one-liners. The plot, involving a New Mexico community that rallies around Allen's dead wife's severed hand thanks to its miracle-granting powers, shows a ton of promise, but never delivers. Note to Alfonso Arau: more boobs.

Eye For An Eye Review


Good
This movie kinda sneaked up on us, huh? You've probably never even heard of Eye For an Eye. (I hadn't until the screening pass arrived in the mailbox last week.) But you'd think with a cast of Sally Field, Kiefer Sutherland, Ed Harris, Beverly D'Angelo, and Joe Mantegna, the studio would be pushing it a little harder.

As well they should, because, put simply, this isn't your typical Sally Field movie. A long way from Gidget, Eye For an Eye is the very aptly titled story of Karen McCann (Field), a white bread mother whose daughter is raped and murdered (in an exceedingly disturbing opening scene) by a nutcase killer (Sutherland). Ed Harris plays Mack, Karen's second (and very understanding) husband, and Mantegna is the investigator on the case.

Young Guns Review


Bad
Remember the Alamo, and remember the '80s. Young Guns supposedly takes place in the old west, but it actually takes place in front of the cameras. If you use your imagination, behind the impeccably coiffed brat pack (Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Philips, Charlie Sheen), you can almost see their hairdressers, lint removers, personal assistants, entourages, and playmates. Young Guns doesn't have a good reason to exist besides an excuse for these hot young Turks to look good onscreen, pop off their guns, then mosey off the set and indulge in stardom. It might seem unfair to judge the movie this way, but damn if that isn't the way it feels -- an excuse for preening.

Fifteen years later (as the film is reissued on an indulgent Special Edition DVD set, complete with commentary track from three of the less-busy stars), everything in Young Guns feels wrong. The cheap sawdust sets, the dust-free costumes (except for tobacco chompin' Dermot Mulroney, who is "Pigpen" to the rest of the Peanuts Gang cast), the barely awake performances by Yoda-like mentor Terence Stamp and bad guy Jack Palance, and the flat-out arrogance of some of the cast members. At the time, they may have been the masters of the universe -- emblematic success stories of the Reagan era. Now, Emilio Estevez's Billy the Kid is a cute nihilist, a maniac winking at the camera to let us know deep down, he's really svelte Emilio.

Beat Review


Good
Judy Davis might have commanded the definitive Joan Vollmer role in Naked Lunch, but in Beat, Courtney Love makes a not-half-bad at reinterpreting the last weeks of her life before being accidentally(?) shot in the head during a William Tell parlor trick by her famed writer husband William S. Burroughs.

Set in broken down Mexico City, the film finds Vollmer receiving a visit from beat-heads Allen Ginsburg (Ron Livingston) and Lucien Carr (Norman Reedus). (Carr, a minor figure in beat history, was a UPI reporter responsible for introducing many of the beats to one another as well as inspiring Jack Kerouac to type On the Road on a roll of teletype paper.) Burroughs (Kiefer Sutherland) is off on one of his bisexual booty calls, leaving his wife to ponder whether she should stay with her philandering husband (being no faithful lap dog herself) or skip town and return with her two kids to New York with Lucien and Allen. (Her very short history should tell you which route she actually chose.)
