Allen Leech, Matthew Goode on 'The Imitation Game' and Working With Benedict Cumberbatch

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on Nov 19th 2014 5:09PM
Often biopics, even loosely based ones, can be dull, stiff, and uninteresting. Not so with "The Imitation Game," director Morten Tyldum's story about the life of Alan Turing. Played by Benedict Cumberbatch, Turing as a character is fascinating to watch. The supporting cast, which features Matthew Goode ("The Good Wife") and Allen Leech ("Downton Abbey"), is an essential part of keeping... read more

The Cast of 'Parenthood' Reveals Their Dream Endings and What to Expect In the 'Cathartic' Finale

Posted By Alana Altmann on November 11, 2014
It's hard to type these words, "Parenthood" fans, but there are only six episodes left in the final season of the critically-acclaimed NBC family drama left. Yes, one of our favorite TV family's story is coming to a close shortly, so prepare to say goodbye to those beloved Bravermans. The timing is bittersweet, but the show celebrated its 100th episode last week with a ceremonial cake cutting...

'Wolves': Everything You Need to Know About the Jason Momoa Movie

Posted By Bryan Cairns on November 11, 2014
There's some serious partying going on one late October evening in a remote area outside of Toronto. From a distance, a fire pit's glow cascades over the area. Loud music interrupts the midnight silence. Clanging beer bottles and glasses contribute to the festive atmosphere. Male voices can be heard and so can .... growling? This is no human get-together. Mere steps away, a feral pack of...

Gael Garcia Bernal on 'Rosewater' and Jon Stewart as Film Director

Posted By Jason Gorber on November 11, 2014
Jon Stewart's "Rosewater" tells the harrowing, true-life story of Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari, a journalist who was arrested and interrogated by security forces in part because of an appearance on satirical American television program "The Daily Show." To bring Bahari's story to life, Stewart cast Gael Garcia Bernal. The quiet, soft-spoken actor is a Mexican native best-known...

Jon Stewart, Maziar Bahari on 'Rosewater' and the Gravity of Making a Real-Life Movie

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on November 11, 2014
Jon Stewart is a lot of things -- smart, funny, a s**t-disturber -- and now we can add another thing to the list: feature-film director. His directorial debut, "Rosewater," is, of course, heavy material. Based on the memoir "Then They Came for Me" by Maziar Bahari and Aimee Molloy, it follows the real-life story of Bahari, who was arrested in Iran after appearing on Stewart's "The Daily Show"...

'Big Hero 6' Star Damon Wayans Jr. Wanted to Be a Disney Animator

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
Fans of quality sitcoms know what a force Damon Wayans Jr. can be. He made a splash in the pilot for the Fox series "The New Girl," but had to leave when another show he appeared on, "Happy Endings" (for ABC) got picked up as well. "Happy Endings" ran on ABC for the next few years and a small, dedicated few (myself included) applauded it for being one of the best shows on television, an utterly...

'Big Hero 6' Star Scott Adsit Won't Curse as Baymax, So Don't Ask

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
A few weeks ago, Scott Adsit, whom you might remember as Liz Lemon's perpetually put-upon coworker Pete in Tina Fey's "30 Rock," was on stage at the New York Comic Con. It was during the Disney panel, when they were hyping up this month's release of the studio's new animated superhero romp "Big Hero 6," and Adsit was beaming. In fact, it seemed like he couldn't believe that he was lucky enough to...

Justin Simien, 'Dear White People' Director, on Making Movie Magic With a Very Sensitive Subject

Posted By Jason Gorber on November 11, 2014
"Dear White People" is dark, biting satire about young people coming to terms with their identities in a myriad of ways. A twist upon the usual frat hijinks of college-aged comedies, this debut from director Justin Simien manages to deftly create a film that's provocative, profound and particularly enjoyable, threading a needle that has foiled even veteran filmmakers. With a stellar cast that...

Eddie Redmayne on 'The Theory of Everything' and Embodying Stephen Hawking

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on November 11, 2014
Taking on the role of physicist Stephen Hawking is an incredible challenge, one that many would balk at simply due to the massive physical effort it takes to master. British actor Eddie Redmayne not only accepted the challenge for "The Theory of Everything," but he absolutely blew it out of the water. He's utterly convincing as Hawking, and is almost guaranteed an Oscar nomination come...

Watch Anne Hathaway Plan a Catwoman Dinner Party

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
When Anne Hathaway was cast in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" as Catwoman, she didn't know that she would become one of the honorary "Nolan players," actors that are asked back to join his visionary productions (it's kept Michael Caine in the public eye for at least the last decade). But she does return, for Nolan's new galactic epic "Interstellar," playing a genius scientist and...

Scott Adsit Talks 'Big Hero 6' and Playing Baymax the Robot (VIDEO)

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on November 11, 2014
Baymax isn't your everyday robot. He's big, he's balloony, and there isn't a trace of metal on him. In fact, he looks like a cross between Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and the Michelin Man. Voiced by Scott Adsit in "Big Hero 6," Baymax will steal your heart just as much as he steals this movie. Moviefone Canada spoke with Adsit about the challenges of voicing a monotone, emotionless...

Felicity Jones and Director James Marsh on 'The Theory of Everything' and Nailing the Perfect Chemistry

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on November 11, 2014
Putting the life of Stephen Hawking and his first wife, Jane Wilde, on screen is challenging enough -- but to do it with such success is a true feat. "The Theory of Everything" director James Marsh and his leading lady Felicity Jones (as Wilde) both deliver amazing performances: one behind the camera and the other in front. "The Theory of Everything" begins with Hawking (played...

Jessica Chastain Wants to Be Christopher Nolan's Bond Villain

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
In just a few short years, Jessica Chastain has gone from a young, up-and-coming actress, to a genuine tour de force, someone whose mere presence can elevate the prestige and entertainment value of any movie (hello, "Mama"). If Chastain is in a movie, then it usually means that the project is interesting, different, or a profoundly watchable combination of the two. The fact that she gets to work...

How 'Big Hero 6's' Ambitious Visuals and Giant Huggable Baymax Came to Life

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
Disney's "Big Hero 6" is one of the most visually astonishing movies you'll probably ever see, animated otherwise. It's set in a futuristic mash-up of Tokyo and San Francisco and concerns the adventures of a young science prodigy named Hiro (Ryan Potter) who befriends an inflatable nurse robot named Baymax (Scott Adsit) and, together, set to rid their city of evil. Based on a Marvel property but...

'Interstellar' Star Matthew McConaughey Loves a Good Monologue

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
Matthew McConaughey, it goes without saying, is having a moment. The actor, whose career prospects, just a few years ago, looked bleak and romantic comedy-filled (remember "Surfer Dude"?), has done a complete reversal, working with a slew of noteworthy directors (among them: Steven Soderbergh, Richard Linklater, and Martin Scorsese) on projects that people just can't stop talking about (hello,...

Eddie Redmayne's 'The Theory of Everything' Performance Moved Stephen Hawking to Tears

Posted By Sharon Knolle on November 11, 2014
Eddie Redmayne did such a convincing job of portraying Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything," the astrophysicist said he thought he was watching himself at some moments in the biopic, which opens Friday. The actor, whose previous films include "Les Miserables" and "My Week With Marilyn," worked with a movement coach to be able to endure long periods of time emulating Hawking's...

David Cronenberg on 'Maps to the Stars' and Whether or Not It's His Last Movie

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on November 11, 2014
Canadian director David Cronenberg never ceases to deliver unpredictable, buzzworthy films. His latest venture, "Maps to the Stars," is no exception. "Maps" follows a bunch of Hollywoodites who are searching for fame in their own individual ways -- and underneath it all is a (very) dysfunctional family drama. Moviefone Canada spoke to Cronenberg about this project, and the filmmaker talked...

Julianne Moore on 'Maps to the Stars' and Channelling Her Inner Diva (VIDEO)

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on November 11, 2014
There's a reason Julianne Moore won the Best Actress honours at the Cannes Film Festival: her performance in "Maps to the Stars" is jaw-droppingly on-point. Moore plays Havana -- the daughter of a deceased Hollywood acting legend -- who's searching for her own major breakthrough. She's entitled, bitchy, and utterly clueless about how she comes off. "Maps" is worth seeing solely for...

Jake Gyllenhaal on 'Nightcrawler' and That Intense Mirror Punch

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on October 10, 2014
This role has "Oscar" written all over it: prolific actor Jake Gyllenhaal has taken on another intense part, this time as nighttime video producer Louis Bloom in "Nightcrawler." In more plain language, he's an ambulance chaser, trying to get the most salacious, bloody stories on camera before anyone else so he can sell the footage to news stations. Sounds grim, doesn't it? Moviefone Canada...
