Waco standoff revisited in Paramount drama, A&E documentary
CNN - about 1 month
Marking the 25th anniversary, Waco and messianic leader David Koresh are having a TV moment, drawn by the story's tawdry mix of salacious elements and bureaucratic overreach. The result is a six-hour miniseries, "Waco," starring Taylor Kitsch, more notable for its casting than its execution, followed in short order by "Waco: Madman or Messiah," a four-hour A&E documentary seemingly scheduled to piggyback on all that promotion.

Truth and Power
The Portland Mercury - about 4 years
The brutalities and falsehoods of Lone Survivor. by Marjorie Skinner IT HASN'T BEEN that long. Moreover, Operation Redwings—the 2005 operation against an insurgent leader in Afghanistan that killed 19 Navy SEALs and Special Ops forces and inspired Peter Berg's Lone Survivor—is part of a conflict that hasn't fully resolved. Society hasn't processed this war, so to take liberties with it now feels, at best, premature. Lone Survivor is based on the true story, as told by... lone survivor Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg). One of four SEALs up against a larger number of attackers (estimates vary, landing somewhere between 10 and 200, with Berg tending toward the latter), these men put up a staggering fight, the action of which the film is primarily preoccupied. Though comparisons to The Passion of the Christ are overblown, the bullets, broken bones, and brutal tumbles down steep, rocky ravines are nail bitingly riveting. Knowing how poor...

Why ‘Lone Survivor’ Cast, Director Took Significant Pay Cuts
Wall Street Journal - over 4 years
"It was fine by me eating lunch outside of a tent in 30 degree weather on top of a blustery mountain with no bathrooms -- that was that attitude on this film," said Sarah Aubrey, director Peter Berg's production partner on Film 44. The film, "Lone Survivor," tells the true story of Marcus Luttrell (played by Mark Wahlberg), a former Navy SEAL who was ambushed by an alleged terrorist leader in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan, and along with his team (Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster and Emile Hirsh), had to fight his way down the mountain in an effort to survive. Directed by Peter Berg, the film was shot in the mountains of New Mexico where "everyone came to really work. The actors were carrying pieces of equipment down the mountain to get a shot before we lost light," said Aubrey. "There was a camaraderie I'd never experienced."

Long Hair, Full Boners, Can't Lose
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Breeze past any lady magazine and you'll see that female celebrities are chopping off their high-maintenance locks by the dozens. While most of us fall into the "don't give a crap" camp, one man in particular has been so deeply affected by the trend, he took key to Internet and did the unthinkable -- he penned a tirade on TotalFratMove.com titled "Why Girls Should Not Cut Their Hair Short." The piece is written by Roger Sterling Jr. -- not John Slattery or Matthew Weiner -- but a nom de plume for another person who is too brave to give his actual name. In his article, (fake) Roger Sterling Jr. breaks down his very specific reasons why girls should think twice before handing a photo of Michelle Williams to a hair care professional and saying "me have that." (I'll discuss in detail, but if you want a spoiler, it's because all the boners will dry up, forcing all the surviving boners out of Boner Town, leaving nothing but abandoned boner husks and tumbleweeds.)

'Catching Fire' Star Sam Claflin On Eating Sugar Cubes & This One Party At Jennifer Lawrence's House
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Sam Claflin wears nothing but a fish-netting during his first scene as Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," but it's what the 27-year-old English actor had in his mouth that was a real problem. "We did that scene for a whole day. When we first started shooting, I was actually eating two sugar cubes," Claflin told HuffPost Entertainment about the eye-opening introduction he has to the blockbuster franchise. During the sequence, Finnick uses a seductive tone and those miniature sweets to rattle "Catching Fire" protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). "There were two per take. Then I toned it down a bit, like, 'You know what, is this necessary?' There were a lot of sugar cubes consumed," Claflin said. "I remember they only had one box, and we nearly got to the end of the box. When we were done, I immediately brushed my teeth." Sam Claflin in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" Finnick Odair is one of a handful of major characters added to the "Hunger Games"...

'Escape Plan' No curtains for old men
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
The film's only-in-the-movies plot follows Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone), a structural-security expert wrongfully convicted and sent to serve time in the most secure facility ever built - which, ironically, he also helped design. To escape, he must call upon the help of fellow inmate and international criminal mastermind Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger). Sagging waistlines and fading eyesight be damned, in Hollywood the dreaded inevitability of age is no roadblock for hair-raising action. Counterintuitive as it may be, as newer and much younger stars flail in the action genre, Stallone and Schwarzenegger are deep into their fourth decade on screen with no suggestion of retirement. "Rocky" sequels and the "Rambo" franchise were huge business for Stallone, and with "Conan," "The Terminator," "Commando" and "Predator," Schwarzenegger couldn't miss in 10 years. Schwarzenegger played a pregnant man in Junior, and Stallone's Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot - about a detective whos...

Channing Tatum Busts Out A Cajun Accent To Prove He's The Perfect Gambit
MTV News - over 4 years
by Brett White In a new interview with Total Film, "White House Down" duo Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum both open up about a few comic book movies. Yeah, Jamie Foxx does have a few words to say about the possibility of the Sinister Six popping up in a later "Amazing Spider-Man" film, which is something that co-star Paul Giamatti has mentioned as well. "They actually talked about doing the Sinister Six, so fingers crossed," says Foxx. But maybe this shows my X-bias a bit, but the real interesting part of the clip involves Channing Tatum and the charismatic X-Man, Gambit. "I would like to play Gambit," said Tatum. "Gambit's my favorite, cause I'm from New Orleans—or around that area, my dad's from New Orleans—and I like to do the Cajun accent, and I can do it for real." Tatum goes on to say he enjoyed Taylor Kitsch's portrayal of the character, as seen in 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," and added that he's always been around Cajun culture and would enjoy bringing that sensi...

(Don’t remember John Carter? That’s okay, no one else does either.) But the extraordinarily handsome actor, who sucked fans in with his angsty portrayal of Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights, is back on the big screen in a movie you’ve probably never heard of. The Grand Seduction is a Canadian comedy that tells the tale of a small Newfoundland town, whose residents try to charm a big city doctor  who relocates to the neighborhood. It’s filled with Canadian specifics but “you can rel...

Moving First Trailer For 'Lone Survivor' Debuts
Huffington Post - over 4 years
You are never out of the fight: HuffPost Entertainment and sister site Moviefone are happy to premiere the first trailer for "Lone Survivor," a new drama starring Mark Wahlberg, Ben Foster, Taylor Kitsch, Eric Bana and Emile Hirsch. Peter Berg ("Friday Night Lights") directs the film, which is due out in limited release on Dec. 27 before a nationwide bow in January. "We have seen the first cut of 'Lone Survivor' and it is soulful, gritty, tough, emotional and, quite frankly, remarkable," Universal chairman Adam Fogelson said at CinemaCon back in April. Watch the "Lone Survivor" trailer in the window above. Based on the book "Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of Seal Team 10," Berg's film focuses on an elite unit of Navy SEALs who encountered an army of Taliban forces in the Afghanistan mountains during a raid in 2005. As the title indicates, the events end with tragic consequences for most of the heroic soldiers; Berg's film ...

Anna Torv's New (Lesbian) TV Role
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"Fringe" star Anna Torv has joined Ryan Murphy's HBO pilot, "Open," EW reports. Torv will play Windsor, “a yoga instructor in a long-term relationship with Holly (Jennifer Jason Leigh), but upon meeting Grace feels an instant connection.” Leigh's character is described as an actress intensely committed to her career, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Wes Bentley also stars as Evan, "a handsome blowhard who loves espousing his theories on human sexuality."

8 Signs A Movie Will Be A Big Flop At Theaters
Business Insider - over 4 years
"White House Down" landed in theaters this weekend with a thud. Blowing up much of the Beltway cost $150 million, but the film only eked out a $25.7 million opening despite boasting the triple threat of Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx and "Independence Day" director Roland Emmerich. And this week sees the debut of "The Lone Ranger," which rides into theaters on a flurry of bad reviews and damaging reports about a bursting budget and production snafus. Of course, like "World War Z," another film that was plagued by trouble on the set stories, "The Lone Ranger" could overcome the bad buzz to be a solid box officer earner.
