Brad Pitt and Angelina’s marriage is said to have been under strain even during their strange ‘working honeymoon’, it’s being claimed. The couple married after a decade together in 2014, making the odd decision to spend their honeymoon on the set of their recent movie ‘By The Sea’. Pitt, meanwhile, would go to a local bar alone.
The fallout from the Brangelina split continues, with reports that Angelina Jolie has scrapped a long-planned movie project about elephant poaching to avoid working with Brad Pitt. The movie was set to be called ‘Africa’, and was a biopic about real-life conservationist, politician and paleoanthropologist Dr. Richard Leakey. Leakey was the head of wildlife conservation in Kenya in the late 80s, creating the first well-armed anti-poaching units to prevent the practice going on, and giving authorisation to shoot on sight.
Taking a second look at Brangelina's 'By the Sea,' the quiet 2015 drama she directed and both starred in, about a couple in crisis, in light of their real-life split
Combined, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s movies have grossed nearly $13 billion at the worldwide box office, a feat nearly no other Hollywood couple can claim.
Jack O'Connell is just anonymous enough — for now, anyway — that unfamiliar viewers who see Money Monster are going to be stunned to discover he was brought up in Derby, England. The 25-year-old Brit nails the Queens accent, along with the borough’s blue-collar sensibilities, as Kyle Budwell, a man so enraged by a bad, savings-depleting stock tip that he takes hostage the TV financial guru (George Clooney) responsible for the bum advice. O'Connell has earned acclaim in a series of low-budget British-produced films like This Is England, Starred Up, and ‘71.

Hollywood’s best and brightest pull out all the stops and don’t shy away from dramatic silhouettes, fresh-off-the-runway couture looks or eye-catching accessories.

It’s always fun trying to figure out the A-list voices in animated movies. Here, you can bone up on which stars to listen for this weekend when Kung Fu Panda 3 high-kicks into theaters. This exclusive group shot features the voice cast of the sequel — as well as a whole lot of pandas. A class photo of sorts, let’s zoom in and get a closer look (from left): J.K. Simmons, who plays evil Yak chi master Kai, looks like anything but a baddie in this jovial pose. And Kate Hudson appears to be having a great time, too. ...
By Pamela McClintock, The Hollywood Reporter SPECTRE and The Peanuts Movie had no trouble beating a trio of new competitors during another quiet weekend at the North American box office, while Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt’s By the Sea was marooned in its limited debut despite teaming two of the world’s biggest stars. Sam Mendes’ SPECTRE fell a modest 51 percent in its second weekend to $35 million from 3,929 locations for a 10-day domestic total of roughly $130 million.
By Todd McCarthy They sulk, they smoke, they drink, they spy on the honeymooning couple in the next room through a peephole in the wall. Ostensibly about a couple trying to work their way back from a deeply traumatic incident, the film was made in Malta on a bay that looks like it could be just around the bend from where Robert Altman shot Popeye, which might have served as a warning to the filmmakers and Universal. The names in this case, of course, are Angelina Jolie Pitt, as she has now chosen to be billed, and Brad Pitt. After directing two films, including Unbroken last year, Jolie Pitt this time wrote the script and co-stars as well.
This year’s annual AFI Fest, put on by the American Film Institute in Hollywood, is so jam-packed it requires an interactive schedule to guide attendees. While we could take a few hours to go over everything and the kitchen sink (there are upwards of 100 films being shown) let’s just count off the weeklong festival’s five top highlights: 1. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt steam up the big screen in a big way. By the Sea, co-starring Jolie and Pitt and also written and directed by Jolie, involves a couple in the 1970s struggling to save their marriage while on a seaside vacation.
The world’s most famous celebrity couple is back on the big screen together -- and it doesn’t look like their characters are having that great of a time.
It wasn’t exactly easy for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to play an unhappily married couple in the upcoming period drama By the Sea. In a recent interview with the DGA, Jolie — who also wrote and directed the movie — talked about bringing in real-life dynamics from their marriage to their roles. “I’d be directing myself and him in a scene where we’re having a fight, and I’d be pulling out the parts [of him] that have an aggression toward me or when you’re frustrated with each other—it was very heavy,” said Jolie (via Vanity Fair). It sounds just a bit uncomfortable, which is why it’s even more incredible to remember that the By the Sea shoot was actually Jolie and Pitt’s honeymoon.

Five-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt pretty much stumbled into a plum role in Disney’s upcoming live action film “Maleficent.” And it’s all because she’s the only one who didn’t think her mom was a “mean witch.” While Viv’s mom Angelina Jolie, who stars in the film, had a lot to do with her casting, sheer nepotism wasn’t the reason. And onstage, Jolie revealed why daughter Vivienne was cast: because she was the only kid on the film set who wasn’t frightened of Jolie while in full costume as the evil Maleficent — horns and all. And yeah, she was cast because, as Jolie put it, “She was the only 4-year-old who wouldn’t scream.” "Since I was a little girl, Maleficent was always my favorite. “We initially meet Maleficent as a teenage fairy and how she’s betrayed,” said Disney’s live action head executive Sean Bailey.
Stand back, you fools! If there’s ever been a poster that’s conveyed such a sentiment, its Disney’s first one-sheet for"Maleficent," the highly anticipated live-action riff on “Sleeping Beauty,” starring Angelina Jolie as the titular villainess (a close second:every Jason Statham movie poster ). Jolie’s bewitching blue-green eyes (is she part Na’vi ?) are in full pierce-mode, her bright lips could shame the reddest rose, and whoa!
