Rooney Mara Regretful for Her Role in Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’ (video)

Rooney Mara, the daughter of wealth and privilege, shows she has a social conscious, after all. She expressed regret in a new interview for play the role of a Native American in the 2015 movie “Pan.” It also starred Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Cara Delevigne and Garrett Hedlund. So, why did she take the role in the first place? It’s not like Mara was unaware of the controversy. More than 96,000 people signed a petition calling on studio Warner Bros. to cast a real Native American in the role. ...

Christian Bale Chases Love, Lust in New ‘Knight of Cups’ Trailer (watch)

Christian Bale rides into the valley of temptation–make that the San Fernando Valley–and confronts the excesses of Hollywood in a new trailer for Terence Malick’s film “Knight of Cups,” a study of temptation, love, lust, greed and possibly redemption. Malick couldn’t have picked a better backdrop to test the limits of human emotion, although like most of his projects, the movie’s plot is shrouded in mystery. The cast includes Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Brian Dennehy, and Ben Kingsley....

Ridley Scott’s Moses, a Wrathful God Strikes in New Trailer (watch)

Ridley Scott’s Moses, played by Christian Bale in a new trailer for the movie “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” is far different than character play be Charlton Heston Will the public buy it? Although Heston starred in Cecil B. DeMille’s groundbreaking “The Ten Commandments” in 1956, the film should still be familiar to today’s moviegoers. Now Bale is stepping into Heston's role and Joel Edgerton will tackle Rameses II. But 20th Century Fox wisely steered clear of mentioning Moses in the title. Instead we get "Exodus: Gods and Kings." ...

Ben Affleck to Play Batman? Are You Kidding? Get Serious…

Ben Affleck as Batman in the upcoming sequel to “Man of Steel” has to be one of the monumental cases of miscasting since George Clooney was handed the role in the 1997 movie “Batman & Robin.” Nothing against Ben; he’s a fine actor and obviously a solid director as well. Check last year’s “Argo.” But he just lacks the gravitas to play the caped crusader in the wake of Christian Bale’s stunning performance in the Christopher Nolan “Batman” trilogy. Then, again, Batman has never really gotten much respect on the big- or small-screen....

Anne Hathaway Cat's Meow In New Dark Knight Photos

Anne Hathaway says she had to physically transform to play Catwoman in the new Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises." But the hard work appears to have paid off judging by new photos from the movie. She appears in her skin-tight Catwoman suit and looks oh so feline. Hathaway's cat suit is unlike any of the others that preceded her in earlier Batman movies, which saw Halle Berry (2004) and Michelle Pfeiffer (1992) play the role. Berry showed far more skin, while Pfeiffer's had a latex look. Hathaway's outfit, in contrast, has the same utilitarian look as Batman's suit....
