Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska star in this quirky indie film called ‘The Double.’ It’s not light and fluffy, though. ‘The Double‘ is a modern retelling of the classic Dostoevsky novel ‘The Double.’ I haven’t read the book, but this looks interesting.
I have to brace myself, though. Dostoevsky, like many of the Russian authors of his time, was NOT known for the happy endings we favor today. Jesse gets to show off his acting chops (again) in a dual role. He did a great job in ‘The Social Network.’ And Mia shines in everything she does. Does ‘The Double‘More >
The Oscars are this weekend and it seems like everyone’s excited. While the celebs are hitting up the pre-Oscars parties, and the normal folk (that’s us) are making out predictions, the members of The Academy are actually determining who will be taking home the most coveted award in film making.
The Hollywood Reporter sat down with an anonymous sound effects professional – who is also a voting member of The Academy – and got the scoop as he filled out his official Oscars ballot.

Zoe Kravitz got a little feature in the March issue of Allure (the one with Victoria Beckham and her hairless legs on the cover). She’s promoting the March release of Divergent. Zoe also appears in the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road that keeps getting pushed back and won’t come out until 2015. So this interview is really about Divergent.
Zoe plays Christina, a Dauntless pledge originally from the Candor faction. From what I remember about the book, the Candor were really annoying. They never hold anything back and have to say what’s on their minds at all times. Zoe says she’s a lot like herMore >
The brunette star is expected to take in about $70million … yes, seventy million dollars, from the blockbuster flick. How is that possible? Well, a lot of it has to do with just how huge of a draw she is at the box office, especially after the success of The Blind Side.
The Hollywood Reporter is claiming they’ve got an exclusive source saying that Sandra was guarenteed $20million up front, and 15% of the “first dollar gross.” So what does that mean?

Star Wars fans – get ready! Casting has begun for the seventh installment (Star Wars Episode VII) of the mega franchise, and it looks like there are two huge celebs about to sign on the dotted line.
Rumors are surfacing that Benedict Cumberbatch and Gary Oldman are almost definitely going to be hitting the silver screen. In fact, according to Market Saw, there have been quite a few casting decisions already made.
Ian McDiarmid, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, Warwick Davies, Benedict Cumberbatch and Gary Oldman [have been cast]. I
Here’s Rita Ora making her way to a photo shoot in New York City. I wonder if she flew into New York from Vancouver? Rita was in the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ movie. Her scenes must’ve all been indoors, though. We never saw her on set!
Rita was cast as Christian Grey’s younger sister, Mia. There wasn’t a whole lot of Mia in the book, so she probably only had a few scenes. It sounds perfect for someone breaking into acting: the role is high profile but the movie isn’t resting on Rita’s performance. I’m excited to see her in it. Are you?
