Shia LaBeouf’s ‘Man Down’ is a spectacular flop. According to The Guardian, the latest Shia LaBeouf flick managed a meagre £7 at the UK box office… but it might not be as bad as it sounds. “Signature’s theatrical distribution of Shia LaBeouf war movie Man Down may be fairly termed token – it opened on Friday in just one venue, concurrent with release on digital platforms,” they revealed.

Earlier this year, director Scott Derrickson tweeted: “Wish more online diversity activists had aggressively celebrated ROGUE ONE.

Last year ‘The Revenant’ swept awards season and claimed its biggest prize: the Academy Award for Best Picture. It was a fitting film for 2016.

After a protracted (sound of) silence, Ben Affleck has finally responded to the ‘Sad Affleck’ video, which went viral around the release of ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ last year. The video – which was based and edited from an interview our very own Tom Butler did with the movie’s stars for Yahoo Movies UK – found Affleck seeming to disappear into a deep funk while being asked about the negative critical response to the movie. As Affleck’s face was zoomed in upon, and Henry Cavill fielded the question, the strains of Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘Sound of Silence’ appeared to capture the nature of Affleck’s expression perfectly.
He’s not Gryffindor anymore. But then again, he’s not quite Slytherin either. The wit and wisdom of Ravenclaw, then, that’s where we might find Rupert Grint in this first teaser trailer for the TV (well, streamed) series of ‘Snatch’. Based on Guy Ritchie’s follow-up to ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’, it centres on a ‘group of 20-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime’. ...
Margot Robbie is at it again! The Australian actress was spotted Monday on the set of her upcoming Tonya Harding biopic, looking absolutely transformed for the role.

If you went into the 2011 Ryan Gosling film expecting a pedal-to-the-metal action flick, you were probably disappointed, even if the resulting drama was still one of the best movies that year. Investment banker Andrew Greene sued the Scorsese movie for using his likeness in a character called Nicky Koskoff, played by actor P.J. O’Byrne, who’s one of Jordan Belfort’s (Leonardo Di Caprio) greedy, amoral trader posse.
The unsinkable movie star Debbie Reynolds died on Dec. 28 at age 84, just one day after the death of her daughter Carrie Fisher. While we mourn her passing, let’s take a look back at some of the Hollywood legend’s most memorable roles.
Carrie Fisher has sadly died following a heart attack on 23 December. The actress-turned screenwriter is a Hollywood icon with a diverse career beyond her iconic ‘Star Wars’ role as Princess Leia.

Ben Affleck has said that the 2003 romantic comedy Gigli's poor performance at the box office would not have been a big issue if he was not dating his co-star Jennifer Lopez at the time. Angelina Jolie had a bad movie [Beyond Borders/Tomb Raider] that year and nobody cared,' the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actor said on TimesTalk on Monday. "But because I was dating Jennifer Lopez that made it a big f***ing deal, you know?
‘Rogue One’ is unlike any other ‘Star Wars’ film that’s come before for many reasons, but one of the most exciting is the diversity of its cast. From its female lead, to its international roster of actors from all around the world, it’s clear the franchise has come leaps and bounds from the original trilogy with its sole non-white character – Billy Dee Williams’ Lando Calrissian.
