Ryan Gosling's Love Letters to Los Angeles

Ryan Gosling's Love Letters to Los Angeles
Ryan Gosling's most frequent co-star isn't Emma Stone. It's Los Angeles.

Over the past 10 years, Gosling has starred in seven movies where Los Angeles not only serves as the setting, but as a character. And he's the first to admit that the sunny, messy, dynamic sprawl is one of the keys to his storytelling.

"'L.A. worships everything and values nothing.' That was something my lady said to me one day, and I thought it was so funny I asked her if I could put it in the movie," Gosling told Et's Denny Directo during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where he was promoting 2016's La La Land. (The lady in question, of course, is Gosling's longtime partner Eva Mendes, although this being L.A., we do love the noirish connotations of him not identifying her by name.) "She was kidding, but it's a funny thing to say... I loved when

Daniel Pyne Takes Over as ‘Bosch’ Showrunner
Ok, try to stay with us here. Daniel Pyne (“Fracture,” “The Manchurian Candidate”) has taken over as “Bosch” showrunner, replacing Eric Overmyer in the role. As previously reported, Overmyer dropped the day-to-day duties on the Amazon original series to be the showrunner on another, “The Man in the High Castle.” There, he replaced Frank Spotnitz, who left the role mid-production on Season 2. Joining “Bosch” as an executive producer is John Mankiewicz (“House of Cards,” “House”), a regular collaborator of Pyne’s. Overmyer will remain an executive producer on “Bosch.” Got all that?

Great Job, Internet!: La La Land is great and all, but let’s talk about Ryan Gosling’s short-lived horror band

In the late 2000s, Ryan Gosling was at a curious place in his career. After rupturing the hearts of romantics everywhere with a star-making turn in The Notebook, the young actor spent the subsequent years trying on different guises—there was his award-baiting role as a crack-addled teacher in Half Nelson, a failed bid at the mainstream with Fracture, and a foray into indie quirk as a weirdo in love with a doll in Lars And The Real Girl. Then, he kind of disappeared for a few years.

Well, he disappeared from our screens. In light of his Golden Globe win for his performance in Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, Vice felt it was a good time to revisit one of Gosling’s more curious musical detours. In 2009, perhaps as a way to reevaluate his career goals, Gosling joined forces with colleague Zach Shields to form Dead Man ...

Superman takes on Wonder Woman in storyboard art from George Miller’s Justice League Mortal

Since the announcement of a documentary following the development of the failed Justice League Mortal, we’ve started to see a lot more of what could have been. We’ve seen some concept art for Aquaman and Wonder Woman as well as a sculpture of Martian Manhunter and now we have a new set of storyboard art that sees the Man of Steel (D.J. Cotrona) take on Princess Diana of Themyscira (Megan Gale).

Check them out below:

So why is Superman fighting Wonder Woman? Well, in the movie The Last Son of Krypton would have had his mind taken over by Maxwell Lord (Jay Baruchel), which would have turned him against his team mates. However, it would have all ended up badly for Lord when Batman (Armie Hammer) steps in to snap his neck. Ouch.

Justice League Mortal was originally set to go into production in 2007 before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug.

Who's that 'Gone Girl'? A chat with Rosamund Pike

Who's that 'Gone Girl'? A chat with Rosamund Pike
Everyone who read Gillian Flynn's runaway 2012 bestseller Gone Girl quickly had a vision of Amy Dunne in their head. Hollywood was no different: The beautiful blonde who'd been the model for her parents' popular children's books, Amazing Amy, who disappeared on the morning of her fifth wedding anniversary, leading to a media frenzy that focused suspicions of foul play on her husband, Nick, could've been Reese Witherspoon or Charlize Theron or Emily Blunt. Chances are you didn't immediately picture Rosamund Pike. But when the lights come on in the theater after David Fincher's Gone Girl, don't expect to hear much second-guessing.

Who Is Gone Girl Star Rosamund Pike?

  • VH1.com
Rosamund Pike, the star of the highly anticipated film, Gone Girl, is about to get a lot of attention for her standout role as Amy Elliott Dunne, a disillusioned housewife who suddenly disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary. The part is one intense (and showy) role, and will surely stick with audiences well after the end credits stop rolling.

With all the buzz coming her way, it’s a good time to get to know the 35-year-old English actress making a big splash Stateside.

She’s a Bond Girl

While this is definitely her biggest role, it’s hardly her first. The actress’ first big screen part was Miranda Frost, a villainous Bond Girl in Pierce Brosnan’s final James Bond film Die Another Day. She was the 68th actress to be featured as a woman who finds herself entangled with the famed British spy.

And She Can Act

Film Review: ‘Inner Demons’

Film Review: ‘Inner Demons’
A clever premise is executed with minimal imagination in “Inner Demons,” a found-footage horror pic in which a crew from an “Intervention”-like reality show slowly realize their drug-addict subject may be possessed by a demon. Most convincing as an audition reel for director Seth Grossman (“The Butterfly Effect 3″) to land a gig helming a future “Paranormal Activity” installment, this is an item for hardcore horror buffs only, and a longshot for any kind of theatrical release following its Los Angeles Film Festival bow. Further exposure at fright fests and ancillary play seem like logical outlets to cater to genre fanatics.

Grossman actually directed eight episodes of A&E’s Emmy-winning “Intervention,” and his familiarity with reality-tv formula initially pays off in a faithful reproduction during the pic’s first act. A three-person crew including imperious producer Suzanne (Kate Whitney), wisecracking cameraman Tim (Brian Flaherty) and wide-eyed rookie Jason (Morgan McClellan

Gregory Plotkin To Direct ‘Paranormal Activity 5′

After stints editing and co-producing the previous films in the Paranormal Activity franchise, Gregory Plotkin is finally going to get to sit in the director’s chair for Paranormal Activity 5.

Plotkin has worked on the found-footage horror series since 2009, and he’s also involved in upcoming spin-off Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014). Plotkin’s CV is filled with other editorial work, including Fracture (2007) and The Break Up (2006).

However, next year will show what Plotkin can bring to the horror franchise. No plot details have been released yet, but we can make a confident prediction that it’ll involve found-footage. Will it be enough to revitalise the series though? We’ll have to wait till next October to find out.

Soundtrack Review: Continuum Season One Original Television Soundtrack

Music Composed by: Jeff Danna

Release Date: August 6, 2013

Format: Digital Download

Number of Discs: n/a (19 tracks, approx. 43 minutes)

Label: Lakeshore Records

Overview:

Lakeshore Records will release the Continuum – Original Television Soundtrack Season One digitally on August 6, 2013. The album features the original music, composed by Jeff Danna (Silent Hill: Revelation, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus), for the first season of the beloved science fiction show.

“I encouraged a partially-orchestral approach to the series,” said Danna. “The world that Simon has created for Continuum is not a small or safe place and calls for music that is as cinematic as Simon’s vision of his characters and stories. The orchestra is the musical-partner for a story like this, and it is a large part of the soundscape of Continuum.”

Born in Canada to a musical family, Jeff Danna has created scores for a long and varied list of films. His

Rosamund Pike Has Been Cast in Gone Girl: 5 Things You Should Know About Her

Spread the word: Rosamund Pike will play Amy Dunne in Gone Girl! We've been speculating as to who would nab the lead roles in the adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel since rumors began to swirl that there might be a movie, and we finally know who will play the leads. Recently we learned Ben Affleck is starring as Nick Dunne, and this week we got confirmation that Pike has been offered (and will likely accept) the role of Nick's missing wife, Amy. It goes without saying that with David Fincher on board to direct and a rabid fan base hoping to see an accurate adaptation, this is a huge role. Names like Natalie Portman, Reese Witherspoon (who is producing), and Emily Blunt had all been brought up - we even had our own list of possibilities - so it's relatively surprising that Pike earned the role.

Justice League: Mortal - An extract from Holy Franchise, Batman!

Gary Collinson presents an extract from his book Holy Franchise, Batman! Bringing the Caped Crusader to the Screen, which details Warner Bros' attempts to develop a Justice League movie under director George Miller....

After relaunching their two major superhero franchises with Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins and Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, Warner Bros were busy developing sequels to both films – along with a proposed Wonder Woman feature from writer-director Joss Whedon – when the decision was made to take their stable of DC Comics characters down a similar path to that of rival publisher Marvel. Establishing their own independent film production division in 2005, Marvel Studios had announced plans to produce a slate of solo movies in Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America, building towards their star-studded superhero cross-over The Avengers in 2012. Having enjoyed little success outside Batman and Superman with their DC properties, Warner Bros executives were

Conde Nast Division Taps Vanity Fair, GQ Articles For Films On Mobsters And Horse Whisperers

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Conde Nast Entertainment Group, which launched under Dawn Ostroff to mine feature and TV properties from the archives of the publisher’s magazine stable, has unearthed two separate projects. Run by former Imagine and Fox Searchlight exec Jeremy Steckler, the feature division has set Fracture scribe Daniel Pyne to script The Camorra Never Sleeps, a drama about the notorious Naples-based criminal underworld that is based on the 2012 Vanity Fair article written by William Langewiesche. Conde Nast Entertainment Group has separately hired Reservation Road scribe John Burnham Schwartz to script a film based on The Horse Whisperer, a 2002 GQ article written by Robert Draper. The movie will certainly need a new title, but the article is based on the long-shot journey of Wesley Keith Ritchie, who went from a Kentucky prison inmate to being a horse rehabilitation specialist who found salvation through the broken down progeny of Triple Crown winner Affirmed.
