The Babadook Director Gets a Release Date for New Movie The Nightingale

The Babadook Director Gets a Release Date for New Movie The Nightingale
One of the most divisive horror movies of the past decade has been writer-director Jennifer Kent's The Babadook starring Essie Davis and Noah Wiseman. Some love it. Some hate it. But either way, Kent firmly made our list of up-and-coming horror movie directors to keep a close eye on following her debut. And today we have word that IFC Films have acquired her follow-up film The Nightingale. The new period survival drama is all set to unleash upon the masses on August 2, 2019.

The old timey thriller follows a 21-year-old Irish convict in 1820s Tasmania, who is desperate to be free of her abusive master, Lieutenant Hawkins, having served her seven-year sentence. Hawkins refuses to release Clare, so Clare's husband, Aidan, retaliates and she becomes the victim of a harrowing crime at the hands of the lieutenant and his cronies. Unable to secure justice from the British authorities before Hawkins

Philip Seymour Hoffman's Partner Mimi O’Donnell Opens Up About Late Actor's Drug Addiction

Philip Seymour Hoffman's Partner Mimi O’Donnell Opens Up About Late Actor's Drug Addiction
Philip Seymour Hoffman's partner of over 14 years remembers when she first noticed that something was "brewing" with the actor.

Mimi O’Donnell opens up in a moving essay for Vogue's January issue about first meeting Hoffman at a theater in New York City in 1999 and the beautiful love story that ensued, which included the two parenting three children, Cooper, 14, Tallulah, 11 and Willa, 9. "When I look back at how close we all were, I wonder whether Phil somehow knew that he was going to die young," she reflects. "He never said those words, but he lived his life as if time was precious."

After being sober for well over a decade, O'Donnell says Hoffman was faced with a lot of trials all at once, which led to him returning to drugs and ultimately dying from a heroin overdose in early February 2014 at the age of 46.

"His longtime therapist died of cancer, which was devastating

'Moana' Repeats at #1, Topping Slow Post-Thanksgiving Weekend

'Moana' Repeats at #1, Topping Slow Post-Thanksgiving Weekend
In a repeat of last weekend, Disney's Moana finished atop the weekend box office for a second week in a row followed by the third weekend of WB's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Overall the weekend played pretty much as expected with a few over-performers here and there along with the weekend's widest new release Incarnate falling short of its meager expectations. Moana dropped 50% from its three-day opening weekend, finishing #1 with an estimated $28.37 million bringing the animated feature's domestic cume to just under $120 million. Internationally Moana added another $32 million from 30 territories as its international gross now stands at $57.5 million for a worldwide haul topping $177 million. Within Moana's international performance it debuted in five significant markets including a #1 finish in France with an estimated $5.2 million, a $5.1 million opening in Russia, $2.7 million debut in Mexico and UK, along with an estimated $2 million opening in Spain.

'Fantastic Beasts' Tops Weekend With $75M While Fellow New Releases Struggle

'Fantastic Beasts' Tops Weekend With $75M While Fellow New Releases Struggle
The weekend didn't quite turn out as Mojo had forecast as the top twelve grossed a combined $149.4 million compared to Mojo's forecast, which foresaw the top twelve grossing over $180 million. Part of the blame lay on an over-estimation of the weekend's top new release, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which did deliver a solid #1 opening, but couldn't match Mojo's lofty expectations. To that point, the vast majority of films fell below expectations including the weekend's two other new wide releases, The Edge of Seventeen and Bleed for This, neither of which managed to top $5 million as well as Sony's expansion of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, which can't be looked at as anything more than a flop at this point. Yet, there were some other notable performances to focus on, particularly in limited release where Amazon and Roadside's Manchester by the Sea delivered strong opening results and Moonlight

'Fantastic Beasts' Eyes Fantastic Opening that Could Top $90 Million

'Fantastic Beasts' Eyes Fantastic Opening that Could Top $90 Million
Fifteen years ago J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series made the leap from its place in literary history to its place in film history.

This weekend a new adventure within J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World begins in the form of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a prequel to the Harry Potter franchise, debuting in over 4,000 theaters and looking at a #1 opening that could top $90 million. Meanwhile, fellow new releases this weekend include the coming-of-age dramedy The Edge of Seventeen starring Hailee Steinfeld and Bleed for This starring Miles Teller. Additionally, Sony's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk expands into over 1,100 theaters and limited release standout Moonlight gets a moderate nationwide release into 650 theaters.

Jennifer Lawrence is World's Top Earning Actress

Jennifer Lawrence has maintained her title as the world's highest paid actress for the second straight year.

The Hunger Games star, 26, earned an estimated $46 million before tax from June, 2015 to June this year (2016), topping the list compiled by editors at America's Forbes magazine.

The past year saw Jennifer appear in the final instalment of the film series which made her a Hollywood superstar, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for her role in David O. Russell's Joy, and star as Mystique in superhero sequel X-Men: Apocalypse.

Despite remaining at number one on the annual Forbes list, her earnings were down from $52 million in the previous year, and well below the figure made by the highest paid male actor, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, who took home $64.5 million over the same period.

Meanwhile, Ghostbusters star Melissa McCarthy climbs up to second place,

Guess What, Guys? Liam Hemsworth Is Gracing the Red Carpet Again
It's been far too long since Liam Hemsworth hit the red carpet to promote a film, and we were starting to go through withdrawals. The last press tour he did was for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 last year, and after some rest and relaxation - including rekindling his romance with Miley Cyrus and lots of surf sessions with his brothers Down Under - the 26-year-old Aussie actor is back and looking better than ever. Liam kicked off his promo tour of Independence Day: Resurgence with a photocall in his native Australia last week and looked just as stunning as the Sydney Opera House backdrop. On Monday, he linked up with costar Jeff Goldblum in London to debut Virgin Trains' new Beam service and posed in front of a car that was wrapped with his own gorgeous face. The big question is: will Miley join her fiancé on

Sir Elton John In Talks To Join Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Well, this is an interesting development. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that music icon and Academy Award-winner Sir Elton John is currently in talks to join the cast of 20th Century Fox's upcoming Kingsman sequel, which is titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle. A deal hasn't been finalized just yet, but if it closes, he'll join a cast that has already added Julianne Moore (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2), Halle Berry (X-Men: Days Of Future Past), and Pedro Pascal (Game Of Thrones). Details on his potential role are unavailable, but there is a chance he may just be playing himself. It was rumored back in 2013 that director Matthew Vaughn was eyeing John for a cameo in Kingsman: The Secret Service, but since it didn't work out then, it looks like he finally got his guy for the sequel. The upcoming 2017 follow-up will be headlined by returning stars Taron Egerton and Colin Firth.
