After months of bumps in the road, Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic is finally heading into production. Universal has announced ‘Steve Jobs’ as the official and not-very-surprising title for the film, along with a full cast lineup and breakdown, as well as the official plot. It’s all happening.
Kate Winslet is basically the queen of period drama. When you think period drama, you think Kate Winslet in fussy, suffocating clothing. So it’s no surprise that Winslet has once again returned to the genre that first introduced her to mainstream audiences—this time for Alan Rickman (yes, that Alan Rickman), who directed and co-stars with Winslet in ‘A Little Chaos.’ The first trailer for the upcoming film has arrived, in which our reigning queen of period drama gets a lot of side-eye from some upper-class French people at Versailles.
Just last month, Natalie Portman was in talks to star in the troubled Steve Jobs biopic, which recently landed at Universal after being dropped by Sony (which has been dealing with enough problems of its own in recent weeks). Portman quickly turned down the role of the film’s female lead opposite Michael Fassbender, and although production on the biopic has been troubled, the film continues to pick up new cast members. The latest update on the project has Universal eyeing Kate Winslet to fill their Natalie Portman-shaped void.
Shailene Woodley and Theo James are back in the next installment of the YA-adapting franchise. In this first teaser, a house flies.
After four books, a slew of online fan fiction, merchandise, and five feature films, we all thought 'The Twilight Saga' had officially been laid to rest. But, as we learned from 'Game of Thrones,' "what is dead may never die."

HBO's ‘True Detective’ has neither completed the course of its eight-episode run, nor has that Nic Pizzolato-scripted series even officially attained a season 2 renewal, but recently the internet has been abuzz with #TrueDetectiveSeason2 casting choices, both real and fake. The meme may have run its course, but we decided to take a serious approach to pool Hollywood A-list talent we’d like to see in ‘True Detective’ season 2!
On its own, 'Triple Nine' doesn't offer audiences much intrigue. A heist thriller? Where's the hook? Well, the hook is apparently the illustrious cast, which already includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Casey Affleck and Kate Winslet. But now a bushel of stars are in the process of joining, as well, all of who are hotly in demand.
In 1997, James Cameron unleashed 'Titanic,' his epic blockbuster about the ill-fated maiden voyage of the notorious ship and the fictional love story between Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet). The film was a smashing success and was nominated for 14 Academy Awards, winning 11, including statues for Best Picture and Best Director for Cameron. In 2012, Cameron released a 3D version of the film earning it another $343 million worldwide, taking its total earnings to date well over $2 billion. 14 years later, we celebrate one of the most successful films in history by taking a look back at the cast and seeing where they are now.
The business of adapting bestselling young-adult books into movies can result in untold riches (see 'The Hunger Games' and 'Harry Potter') or it can result in something instantly and completely forgettable (does anyone remember 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones'?). The upcoming adaptation of Veronica Roth's novel is certainly hoping for the former, and unlike so much of the competition, the new 'Divergent' trailer makes it look like the film may have the pedigree to pull it off.
