‘Katie Says Goodbye’ Trailer: Olivia Cooke and Christopher Abbott Star in Unsettling Drama
Since her memorable breakout role in “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” rocked Sundance in 2015, British actress Olivia Cooke has filled her resume with a bevy of highbrow and intriguing projects. In 2017, she returned to Sundance in Cry Finley’s “Thoroughbreds,” where she was electric as a troubled Connecticut rich girl with an axe to grind. She also landed a plum role in Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One,” and thrilled critics with her portrayal of ambitious and scheming Becky Sharp in the latest TV mini-series of William Makepeace Thackeray’s “Vanity Fair.”

Now, she takes on another mature and intense role in Wayne Roberts’ feature directorial debut, “Katie Says Goodbye.” The film follows a small town waitress who is mistreated by nearly everyone in her life — from her abusive mother (a terrifying Mireille Enos) to a seemingly never-ending string of men who pay her for sexual acts — but

Tom and Jerry Movie Wants Peter Dinklage as the Villain?

Warner Bros. reportedly wants Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage to star in their upcoming Tom and Jerry movie. It's believed that the CGI and live-action hybrid will begin production this summer and Dinklage will certainly have some more time on his hands now that his hit HBO series is finished. However, he will more than likely have to do some press for Game of Thrones Season 8 throughout the summer, which could impede on the Tom & Jerry production.

It was previously revealed that Warner Bros. was eying Olivia Cooke for a starring role and they reportedly already met with Zoey Deutch. It is believed that the actresses are up for the part of Kayla, "who teams up with Tom to stop the pesky Jerry from ruining an important event for herself." Peter Dinklage is reportedly wanted for the role of Terrance, who is the antagonist, and Kayla's boss in the Tom & Jerry movie.

Top 13 Oscar underdogs you need to consider before voting: ‘Annihilation,’ Amandla Stenberg, Tilda Swinton …
Dear Oscar voters,

The time for you to pick nominees for the 2019 Academy Awards just started on January 7, and you’ve only got a week before voting closes next Monday on January 14. You’ve already spent the last few months juggling screenings, luncheons, receptions, and trying to remember how to switch the input on your TV to access your DVD player for all those screeners. But I’d be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to suggest a few underdog actors and films you should consider if you haven’t already.

Or if you’re really pressed for time and can’t pop in any more DVDs, you could just take my word for it and vote for these contenders anyway. I won’t tell anyone.

Life Itself Review

  • HeyUGuys
While it’s not difficult to see why Dan Fogelman’s popular TV series This Is Us became an instant hit on both sides of the Atlantic almost overnight, mostly thanks to its introspective, albeit schmaltzy, narrative and hugely likeable characters, sadly the same can’t be said about the writer/director’s latest cinematic offering Life Itself.

Starring Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde and Antonio Banderas amongst other Hollywood heavyweights, Life Itself doesn’t so much as offer any kind of coherent story, but it instead relies heavily on a mishmash of well-meaning, if in the end deeply muddled, reductive and all together baffling series of generational stories about loss, family ties and every other cliched piece of cod-philosophy you can think of. And that’s not even the worst thing about it.

In short, if that isn’t a contradiction in terms, Life Itself tells the story of a

Exclusive: “I miss the chippy” Life Itself star Olivia Cooke on her move to the United States

  • HeyUGuys
With Life Itself hitting our screens this weekend, to celebrate the film’s release we sat down with one of the film’s stars Olivia Cooke. Given it’s an ensemble piece her screen time is somewhat limited, yet her impact, as ever, is there for all to see.

We asked her what attracted her to the role at hand, and what it is about director Dan Fogelman that made her want to work with him again. Given her recent move over to the States, we also asked what she finds is the biggest difference between the Brits and the Americans, and what she misses most about home.

She also explains how she’s given a freedom in America given she has no risk of being typecast as she may in the UK, and she talks about her experiences working with Steven Spielberg on Ready Player One. Finally, we discuss
