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.

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.

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.
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 clip, featuring never before seen footage from the film, was released through the official X Men movie Instagram page today
Like trailers? How about really fast ones with no dialogue and blink and you'll miss it moments? Yeah? Then the new X Men: Days of Future Past promo will be perfect for you and your busy schedule, and its available for your viewing pleasure at the bottom of the page.
Director Bryan Singer will also be answering questions next week
The clip, a brief few seconds look at the upcoming X Men movie, was uploaded to the official X Men movies Instagram page earlier today (24 Oct.) to give fans their very first look at the project. The seizure-inducing clip isn't just here to wet our appetite until the next year though, as it also serves as a pre-trailer trailer, meaning that it precedes the release of the official trailer by a few day. The actual, official trailer will be released virally and in cinemas on 29 October.

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.

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.

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.
Patrick Stewart and Halle Berry are among the cast and crew of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' to chat about their on-set experience and their characters at a presentation at Comic-Con in San Diego. Among the others are Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, Jennifer Lawrence, screenwriter Simon Kinberg , producer Lauren Shuler Donner and 'The Wolverine' producer Hutch Parker.

The X-Men cast and crew appeared at the San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday. The huge cast for the upcoming movie X-Men: Days of Future Past appeared in Hall-H and was greeted with an overwhelmingly positive response from fans.
The next film will see the cast doubled (quite literally) as the mutant superheroes have to travel in time to change an event which will, if not prevented, destroy mankind. The cast appeared en masse: each taking a few moments to address the audience or in Ian McKellan's case to flirt with Michael Fassbender.

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.

"They ripped off my likeness." Ellen Page has spoken out about the character 'Ellie' from survival horror video game The Last of Us who bears an uncanny resemblance to the Juno actress.
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?"

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?
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.
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.
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.
