Filming for the upcoming sequel 'Now You See Me: The Second Act' was seen taking place in London. In the scene that was filmed, one member of the cast was seen performing street magic in the rain, with one of his final tricks being to stop the rain entirely.
They've fought private military corporations, Nazi splinter-groups and a Norse god. Now, The Avengers assemble once again to celebrate their success. But when a new project from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) reveals itself to be sentient and ready to bring the world to its knees, The Avengers are ready to fight amongst themselves while the threat of Ultron (James Spader) grows his strength, and gains allegiance from Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Meanwhile, Stark is seeing hostility from Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) while Captain America (Chris Evans) desperately tries to bring the team back together to stop the Age of Ultron.

Director Bennett Miller continues to skilfully probe around the edges of true stories with this follow-up to Capote and Moneyball, although this is a much, much darker tale. Actually, it's such an unnerving series of events that it's not easy to watch, and its characters aren't easy to like. But it's so expertly shot and edited, with startlingly full-on performances from the entire cast, that it can't help but get under the skin and chill us to the bone.
It opens after the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, where Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and and his big brother David (Mark Ruffalo) both won gold medals for wrestling. But they need help with funding to train for Seoul 1988, and Mark gets a remarkable offer from billionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell) to start a wrestling team at his vast Foxcatcher estate in New England, which is known for the thoroughbred horses managed by John's imperious mother Jean (Vanessa Redgrave). Aside from wanting to stay home with his wife (Sienna Miller) and kids, David doesn't trust John, so Mark heads to Foxcatcher on his own. But John's obsession knows no bounds, and soon he lures David and family to join them.
Initially, John's interest in wrestling feels like a mere eccentricity, a way of creating a team of "thoroughbreds" to rival his mother's prize-winning horses. But Carell cleverly plays the role with an insinuating glint that makes us wonder what he's up to, and his wrestlers see it too, going along with his nutty plans simply because the money is so good. Then the squirm-inducing twists and turns start, as John introduces Mark to cocaine and everything starts to spiral out of control. Nearly unrecognisable with a prosthetic hook nose, Carell is genuinely terrifying because his performance burns so slowly.

The British actresses were two of the six honorees at the annual Britannia Awards on Thursday night.
Emma Watson and Dame Judi Dench were among the British movie stars to be honoured at the Britannia Awards. The annual ceremony was hosted by BAFTA at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles on Thursday evening.
Dame Judi was given the Albert ‘Cubby’ Broccoli Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment, a gong named after the legendary James Bond movie producer. Presented with her award by Dustin Hoffman, she said: "I'm rather overwhelmed by [the award], because I didn't ever expect to have a film career at all.”

Channing Tatum admits playing Mark Schultz in 'Foxcatcher' was his most painful role.
It seems Channing Tatum is far happier flexing his enviable Hollywood body on a stripper's pole or pulling off some smooth moves on the dancefloor when it comes to movie roles, as his latest part as wrestler Mark Schultz has been his hardest yet.
Channing Tatum [L] is under Steve Carell's [R] tutelage in 'Foxcatcher'
The '22 Jump Street' star is hardly an idler having growing up playing all kinds of sport including martial arts, but that doesn't mean his new work out routine for his role as an Olympic grappler in 'Foxcatcher' was any more of an easy ride. 'I challenge anyone who thinks their sport is harder to come and try it', says Channing Tatum, who landed a college football scholarship as a high school graduate. 'This has been the most painful movie I have ever done. I never want to wrestle again.'
A lot has happened since the Battle of New York. The world was attacked by Norse God, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), causing a united force of tech super-hero Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), reanimated World War Two super soldier Captain America (Chris Evans) and Loki's brother - the Norse God of thunder, Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Two years on, the Avengers have worked to defeat evil in Godly realm of Asgard, on planet Earth, and within S.H.I.E.L.D., the organisation that brought them together in the first place. Now, with Iron Man in retirement and S.H.I.E.L.D. in disarray, the world is suddenly threatened by Ultron (James Spader), a robot who seeks to destroy the Avengers now that he has been unshackled.

Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is brought to the Foxcatcher institute by multi-millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell). Mark is a wrestler, and a good one at that. He confides in du Pont that he wants to be the world's best wrestler. Du Pont himself has his own motives - he wants to be the coach for the world's best wrestling team. But as training steadily creates friction between Mark, his brother Dave (Mark Ruffalo), and du Pont, it appears that not only are the athletes on edge, but their coach is actually becoming more and more mentally unstable.

The 46 year-old actor recently revealed he emailed director Rian Johnson asking for a role in the eight instalment of the sci-fi franchise.

Director Bennett Miller has described, following a showing of 'Foxcatcher' at the Telluride Film Festival, what first attracted him to the story.
Bennett Miller's soon-to-be-released film Foxcatcher has been shown at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado and the director has discussed what aspects of the story first attracted him to the project.
The trailer for Bennett Miller's upcoming film 'Foxcatcher' has been released. Based on a tragic true story, the film has already premiered at Cannes and Steve Carell, who plays a wrestling obsessed schizophrenic, has been highly praised by critics.
Steve Carell is almost unrecognisable as paranoid schizophrenia and wrestling obsessive John du Pont in the upcoming film Foxcatcher. Directed by Bennett Miller who was responsible for such films as Capote, the film is based on the true story of two brothers, Dave and Mark Schultz, who were Olympic wrestling gold medallists.
Channing Tatum and Steve Carell in Foxcatcher.
John du Pont is a multi-millionaire sports coach who has taken an interest in wrestling, wishing to train up a team for the upcoming 1988 Seoul Olympics at his state-of-the-art training facility. When Olympic Gold Medallist wrestler Mark Schultz catches his eye, Mark can't believe his luck having always felt overshadowed by his renowned older brother Dave. Mark and du Pont develop a strong father-son relationship that pretty soon begins to get a little unhealthy; Mark starts to realise that there's a lot more to du Pont than he initially thought as he starts to witness increasingly volatile and erratic behaviour from him. Nonetheless, he is overcome by jealousy on seeing du Pont's newfound obsession with his charismatic brother and through the whirlwind of unusual bonds, deepening insecurity and unstable emotions, tragedy of the worst kind is about to ensue.

Planet of the Apes stars meet the press in San Francisco, while the casts of Hercules and Begin Again stage photo-calls in London. Ferrell tries out prison garb in L.A., and new trailers offer glimpses of Horrible Bosses 2, Paddington and The Skeleton Twins...
It was a week for photo-calls, as the cast of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes gathered in San Francisco. Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and director Matt Reeves were all on-hand to premiere the film and then pose for some picturesque shots in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. The film opens next week in the US and July 18th in the UK. Watch 'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' trailer.
Dwayne Johnson and his costars in the blockbuster retelling of the Hercules myth gathered in London this week to meet the press. Director Brett Ratner introduced the cast and showed a new clip-reel before heading out into Trafalgar Square for a photo op with Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane, Reece Ritchie, Aksel Hennie, Ingrid Bolso Berdal and Irina Shayk. The film opens at the end of the month. Take a look at some photo's from the Hercules Photocall taken in London on Wednesday 2nd July 2014.
Fans of the Oscar-winning 2006 Irish film Once (and its more recent stage-musical adaptation) may find this American drama a little derivative, but it's a strong story in its own right. This time writer-director John Carney has assembled a starry cast to nicely capture the rhythms of New York's streets. And the songs, while not quite as integral to the story, are gorgeous.
The opening sequence sets up the story from two perspectives, as music producer Dan (Mark Ruffalo) hears songwriter Greta (Keira Knightley) reluctantly perform at a bar's open-mic night. Both of these people are at their rope's end: always seeking offbeat talent, Dan is on the outs with his record label partner (Yasiin Bey, aka Mos Def), and wants to reconnect with his estranged wife and teen daughter (Catherine Keener and Hailee Steinfeld). Meanwhile, Greta has just been dumped by her rising pop-star boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine), who got his big break from a song she wrote. To stop her moping, her pal Steve (James Corden) encourages her to start singing her own songs. In Greta, Dan sees the kind of artist he longs to make records with, so with nothing to lose the two set out to record her songs at locations around the city for a new album.
Like Once, this is a love story that doesn't actually involve romance: these two people need each other to discover their life's passions. So Ruffalo and Knightley get the chance to create some terrific chemistry without much of a threat that they'll fall for each other. Indeed, each has other fish to fry, as they try to sort out their emotional connections elsewhere. Their flirty friendship plays out in a fresh, effortless way that generates some complex emotions and ideas. Ruffalo is always great at creating these kinds of loose, slightly hapless characters, while Knightley delivers an even more earthy performance, letting her own sparky personality emerge on-screen for the first time along with some serious skill as a singer. And the supporting cast add texture in just the right places.

The Maroon 5 star just wanted to see how things were done
Many fresh graduates are feeling the pain of unpaid internships and working for free just to get their foot in the door – to add to their CV so they can even be considered for an entry level role at some marketing firm.
And it hasn’t been an entirely different experience for Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, who recently made his film debut in the musical romantic comedy Begin Again alongside Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo. Levine has revealed that he worked for free in order to gain experience in the film industry.

Mark Ruffalo had a sly dig at Ben Affleck.
Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Garner, who played best friends turned lovers in the 2004 comedy 13 Going On 30, are no longer buddies. According to Ruffalo himself, Garner's current husband Ben Affleck made it difficult for the pair to hang out.

Mark Ruffalo no longer has a friendship with his '13 Going On 30' co-star Jennifer Garner, and apparently it is because of Ben Affleck.
The 46 year-old actor made this claim during an appearance on Bravo TV's 'Watch What Happens Live!' on Thursday (June 26th).
He appeared on the show with Keira Knightley to promote their upcoming film 'Begin Again,' but the topic of conversation quickly focused on something else.

It's taken nearly 30 years to bring Larry Kramer's passionate, award-winning play to the screen, but this high-calibre production is a genuine stunner. Even if it was made for television, it carries the gut-punch of a great drama, adding a deeply personal perspective to recent Aids epidemic documentaries like How to Survive a Plague and We Were Here.
At the centre is the outspoken writer Ned (Mark Ruffalo), who has already ruffled feathers in the 1981 New York gay community with his rants against promiscuity. So when a close friend (Jonathan Groff) comes down with what has been labelled "gay cancer", he has a new cause to get angry about. He gathers his buddies including Bruce, Tommy and Mickey (Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons and Joe Mantello) to form an action group, working with Emma (Julia Roberts), a doctor who suspects that the disease is sexually transmitted. But the community isn't willing to give up its hard-fought sexual freedoms. And as Ned falls for Times journalist Felix (Matt Bomer), he becomes increasingly outraged that the government is doing nothing while thousands of people die.
Kramer's script is so intimate and raw that it brings the characters to vivid life, giving each of the actors a show-stopping scene of his or her own. Ruffalo's complex and remarkably transparent performance holds everything together beautifully. Ned's relationships and confrontations all pack a powerful punch, from the romantic scenes with Bomer's lively Felix to darker strain with his brother (Alfred Molina) or an all-out battle with a politician (Corey Stoll). And Roberts gets some pungent scenes of her own, most notably a fiery rant against a room full of callous congressmen.

Actor Mark Ruffalo explains why 'The Normal Heart's' message is as powerful as ever today.
Last night (May 25) HBO viewers witnessed Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo take on his most challenging role to date, as a gay rights activist living in the early years of the aids epidemic of the 1980s. In The Normal Heart, Ruffalo stars alongside Matt Bomer and Julia Roberts as Ned Weeks, a man desperate to draw attention to the aids crisis which is plaguing the gay community.
Mark Ruffalo stars as Ned Weeks in The Normal Heart
The character is based on real life activist Larry Kramer, who also wrote the film’s script based on his 1985 play of the same name. In order to prepare himself to take on the challenging role, Ruffalo spent time with Kramer, hearing his story and reading his works as well as remembering his own feelings witnessing the AIDS crisis in the early 80s. “It felt like a pandemic. And I was young, so I was still idealistic, and it was jarring to see the inhumane response to it all,” he told the Sioux City Journal. “It didn’t compute. But Larry was right, I didn’t fully understand how deep it went.”
‘Foxcatcher’, with its range of themes beyond wrestling glory, has quickly become the most talked about and well liked film at the Cannes Film Festival and critics have hastened to agree.
Murder, wrestling and the French Riviera don’t seem to go hand in hand, yet Steve Carell’s Foxcatcher has definitely won over the crowds and critics at Cannes Film Festival.
Channing Tatum and Steve Carell star in Foxcatcher.
Foxcatcher revolves around a prominent sports sponsor John du Pont (Carell), who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and was convicted of murder in 1996 after he shot Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo). Named after the farm in which du Pont set up a wrestling gym and subsequently shot Dave, it is based on an autobiography by Mark Schultz, Dave’s brother. As such, the film also follows the glory and tragedy of Mark (Channing Tatum) who went on to win a gold medal at the Olympic Games and two at the World Championships in the 1980s.

Mark Schultz is an Olympic Gold Medallist wrestler who is often overlooked as his older brother Dave is renowned in the same sport. One day, Mark is invited to the luxurious home of sports sponsor John du Pont, who wishes to train up a team for the forthcoming 1988 Seoul Olympics at his own training facility. Mark is thrilled to be recognised for his talents for once, and begins to appreciate du Pont like a father. Unfortunately, it soon becomes clear that du Pont is not all he once appeared to be, being prone to increasingly volatile and erratic behaviour, and his support of Mark begins to get unhealthy. Not only that, but it seems he is now obsessed by the charismatic persona of Dave, and through jealousy and spiralling paranoia, tragedy of the ultimate kind is about to ensue.

Based on the real life story of US wrestling coach John du Pont, Foxcatcher is another gritty sports drama that's probably headed straight for the awards after its wider release in November.

Keira Knightley talks about working on her new movie 'Begin Again', in which she stars as a dejected singer-songwriter in New York alongside Hailee Steinfeld, Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine. Although not a natural singer, Keira had to pull off a few tunes of her own in the movie.

Dan Mulligan is a former record executive who has just been spectacularly dismissed by the label he was employed by. Now penniless with nowhere to go and no-one to talk to apart from his hormonal teenage daughter Violet, he is desperate to find some musicians and get his career back on track. Meanwhile, a young singer-songwriter named Gretta has just been dumped by her co-musician boyfriend Dave after he manages to secure a major label deal for himself. Depressed and alone, she finds herself performing solo on a stage at a small bar where Dan happens to be drinking. Captivated, he decides to take her under his wing and help her achieve the success she so craves with his own unusual methods, and both find themselves transforming as people in almost every way.
Formerly entitled 'Can A Song Save Your Life?', 'Begin Again' is a touching comedy drama with a thrilling all star cast. It has been written and directed by John Carney ('Once', 'On the Edge', 'Zonad', 'The Rafters'), and is the story of how music can change many people for the better - and, sometimes, for the worst. The film is due for UK release this summer on July 11th 2014.
The 'Age of Ultron' cast were snapped filming in Italy.
Last week we saw the Avengers: Age of Ultron brother-sister duo Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in Marvel's concept art but thanks to newly released on-set photos, we have been able to catch a glimpse of Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor Johnson as their superhero alter-egos filming an action scene in Italy, via Getty Images/Comic Book Resources.
Elizabeth Olsen Settles Into Her Super New Role In Italy.
The brand new snaps also afford us the opportunity to have a gander at the sequel's main villain, Ultron, who appeared in pre-CGI form as a sinister looking silver robot. Hilariously, the actor performing the movements of the baddie was photographed wearing a thick puffer jacker underneath his high tech silver scales and helmet; a feature that will be digitally erased when it comes to editing.
Based on the play, 'The Normal Heart' frames a love story with the AIDS epidemic.
HBO are ready to present their brand new TV film, The Normal Heart, which will be making its way onto small screens in late May. Based on Larry Kramer's eighties-set play of the same name, the plot has been built upon by Glee's Ryan Murphy: "I worked with Larry on the script for three years. We broke it out to 40- to 45 percent new material, and it's pretty broken out from the play," he told THR.
Starring Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer in the lead roles, The Normal Heart is a love story framed by the horrors of the AIDS epidemic and America's sexual politics and gay attitudes at the time. The drama also stars Julia Roberts, Taylor Kitsch and Jim Parsons and follows gay activists and medical professionals in New York City as they try to unravel the AIDS crisis.
The 'Avengers' actor's new movie charms critics at the festival.
Infinitely Polar Bear has made its debut at this year's Sundance Film Festival and seems to have emerged as one of the most prominent movies, despite some unsure reviews. In the film Mark Ruffalo ('The Avengers') plays Cameron, a dysfunctional father grappling with bipolar disorder who tries to win back his wife Maggie (Zoe Saldana) by attempting to take responsibility over their two daughters. The film is loosely based on the childhood experiences of writer and director Maya Forbes, whose father called his condition Infinitely Polar Bear.
Mark Ruffalo Searches For The Humour In Bipolar Disorder In 'Infinitely Polar Bear.'
Despite the fairly serious subject of mental health, the dramedy manages to inject some humour into the family's trying situation. Premiering at Sundance, the movie received a standing ovation at the weekend and everyone seems to be talking about the wider release of the sweet and poignant film. Both lead actors may be known for playing superheroes in action movies but Saldana has said that she enjoyed playing a parent with Ruffalo because "those are the real avengers, the real guardians of the galaxy!" via NY Daily News.
Even if we've never been to a 12-step meeting, an intelligent script and sharp performances help us see ourselves in these characters and situations. The film may sometimes get a little preachy, but writer-turned-director Blumberg (The Kids Are All Right) strikes a terrific balance between comedy and drama.
At the centre is Adam (Ruffalo), who has just passed the five year mark in his battle against sex addiction. His sponsor Mike (Robbins) is proud of him, but he and his wife (Richardson) have their own issues since their ex-addict son (Fugit) has just returned home. Meanwhile, Adam is sponsoring Neil (Gad), who was court-ordered to attend rehab and doesn't take his addiction seriously until he gets to know Dede (Moore aka P!nk), a fellow rebel in the group. Then out in the real world Adam meets Phoebe (Paltrow) and has an instant spark of attraction. But as their relationship develops, he knows he'll have to tell her about his addiction.
The script is very tightly constructed to explore the topic from several angles through a handful of characters and sideplots. But while this may feel a bit tidy, Blumberg keeps everything grounded in honest experience. So the comedy is edgy and surprising, while the dramas avoid the usual cliches, never going quite where we expect them to as Blumberg and the cast explore the deep flaws all of these people have. So we can cheer for their small victories and sympathise with their failures. And each actor is excellent.

The idea of magicians conducting a series of heists is a great one, but this under-developed film never quite seizes the opportunity. Even its terrific A-list cast can't make much of the lame plot. And director Leterrier is so enamoured with magic that he packs the film with whizzy digital trickery. Which completely misses the point.
At the centre are four illusionists: card trickster Daniel (Eisenberg), hypnotist Merrit (Harrelson), escapologist Henley (Fisher) and street magician Jack (Franco). They're summoned by a mysterious figure to team up for a series of elaborate performances funded by a wealthy benefactor (Caine). First up is a Las Vegas show that involves stealing millions of euros from a Paris bank and raining them down on the audience. This attracts the attention of FBI Agent Rhodes (Ruffalo) and Interpol's Dray (Laurent), who follow them to their next shows in New Orleans and New York. As does a notorious debunker (Freeman) determined to expose their secrets.
The film never quite gets the balance right, as we're not sure if we should root for these flashy young magicians or the people they're leading on a wild goose chase. But there's plenty of eye candy to keep us happy, as each whizzy stunt goes over-the-top to make us wonder what's really happening here. Everything this quartet does has an anarchist slant, stealing from the wealthy to help the needy, which adds a tinge of topicality. Although the gratuitous action scenes and ludicrous effects leave the film about as realistic as a Road Runner cartoon.
