Something Wicked this Way Comes
Back in August we learned the VERY exciting news that actors Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard signed on play Macbeth and Lady Macbeth in a new feature film based on the masterpiece play by William Shakespeare. Without question, Macbeth is my all-time favorite theatrical play and I am very anxious for this movie to come out. Check out the photos presented in this gallery to get your first look at the actors on set in Farnham, UK and get excited … cuz this film is going to be amazing. I know that not a lot of people enjoy Shakespeare‘s work (for various reasons) but I am a huge fan (I got to see Macbeth on Broadway not once but twice last year, loved it so much each time). Macbeth starring Fassbender and Cotillard is basically a dream come true. This film is definitely on my most-anticipated list. Where my Macbeth fanatics at? Are you as excited to see this film as I am?

The Talented Mr. Hoffman
As soon as news spread of Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s untimely death on Sunday, friends and co-stars of the late actor started releasing tributes and memorials all over social media. Hoffman‘s co-star Gwyneth Paltrow was among those paying tribute to the late actor when she shared a cute photo on her official Instagram profile that was snapped on the set of their film The Talented Mr. Ripley (which also starred Jude Law, also featured in this photo). Ripley is one of my favorite Hoffman films so I love that we get this behind the scenes look from the set of the film … even if it comes in the wake of such very sad news.

There may not be an NC-17 version after all.
Early last month we learned of the possibility that two versions of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie might be shot so that one version could be released in theaters with an R rating and another, more explicit, version would be released in less theaters with an NC-17 rating. Today we learn of a new report that suggests the movie might be released in one version … a version that will feature none of the racier sex scenes that made the novel so popular. At this point, none of these reports have been confirmed but if this turns out to be true, it sounds like the much ballyhooed Fifty Shades of Grey movie might turn out to be a huge disappointment to fans.

It’s been about a week since we checked in with the production of the Fifty Shades of Grey film currently filming in Vancouver, British Columbia so I thought it’d be nice to share new photos snapped on the set of actors Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in action. As you can see in the gallery presented here, Jamie and Dakota as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele get awfully close to lockin’ lips as a scene from the movie is being filmed. It seems to me that producers are wisely teasing fans with access to these kinds of photos without actually showing us anything steamy. The really good stuff (ie. the sexy stuff) will be filmed behind closed doors so that fans will RUSH to theaters to see that good stuff with their own eyes. The scenes that are being filmed in public are a great tease to keep people interested. Check out the photos in this gallery to see just how close Jamie and Dakota got on set this week. Things will eventually heat up very, very soon.
Because American Horror Story: Coven is on winter hiatus until next month there was no new episode of the show on FX last night. To make fans feel better about the lack of witchy goodness on their TV screens this week, Coven star Gabourey Sidibe posted a photo on her official Twitter profile that was snapped on the set of the show. As you can see below, Gabby‘s character Queenie gets up close and very personal with another character on the show. In fact, the photo shows Queenie‘s most intimate act with another character on the show thus far. Curious? Well, why don’t you have a look below and see who Queenie is gettin’ all freaky with on camera. More »
They Had A Blast On Set
Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence clearly had a blast filming their new movie together American Hustle. The film– from Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell– just hit theatres and it’s getting some rave reviews. I fear that it’ll be a while before I get to see it, but I’m seriously looking forward to that day. It sounds like there’s a lot of making out that went down, LOL. Click inside for more!
"The sun'll come out"
Last week we got to see really cute photos from the Harlem, NY set of the new film adaptation of Annie which stars Quvenzhané Wallis, Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz and Rose Byrne. Today, we get to see really fun video from the film set. As you can see in the video embedded above, an industrious fan managed to get video of the cast performing the song Tomorrow. Quevenzhané and Jamie got the moves, Cameron kinda does … Rose, notsomuch. Even still, the video is worth watching, I think. Annie will be in theaters next year … so remember this clip when we get to see the final product on the big screen.
Kissing! We have Kissing!
Last week we saw the very FIRST photos from the Vancouver, BC set of the upcoming film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey and today we get to see a new batch of photos from the set. Because filming production has just gotten underway, there are still a few of the scenes that need to be rehearsed a bit before they can be filmed (in take after take after take). As you can see in the photos presented in this gallery, stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan rehearsed and then filmed a kissing scene. Additionally, you can see that some of the scenes were filmed in front of a building labeled Grey Enterprises. Fifty Shades fans, you’re gonna wanna see these photos. Can you tell which scenes are being filmed from just these photos?

Jamie, Quvenzhané, Cameron & Rose like to PARTY!
Back in February we learned that Academy Award-nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis was cast as the lead in the upcoming film remake of Annie, alongside Jamie Foxx (as Benjamin Stacks aka Daddy Warbucks), Rose Byrne (as Grace, the loving assistant) and Cameron Diaz (as the villainous Miss Hannigan). Filming production of Annie has been taking place all over Manhattan in recent weeks and this week filmed a fun parade in Harlem. Click thru the gallery to see cute photos of these actors in action in the roles they play. I am IN LOVE with the casting of this film. Quvenzhané will make the perfect Annie and Jamie will make a decent Daddy. I’m kind of intrigued with the idea of Cameron as Miss Hannigan. Carol Burnett made the role LEGENDARY in the original film, I’m curious to see how well Cameron does with the role. I’m really looking forward to this production of Annie. I hope they do the story justice. Considering the caliber of actors they have in the film, I am not worried at all.
Filming Production is Underway
Yesterday, when we learned that plans are in the works to release the upcoming film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey in two versions — a tamer R rated version and an explicit NC-17 rated version — we also learned that filming production of the movie would begin today … well, it’s today and as you can see in the gallery of photos presented here, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are hard at work in Vancouver, British Columbia in their roles as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele respectively. As you can see, Jamie‘s Christian and Dakota‘s Anastasia are enjoying a pot of tea together, surely as a precursor to all the kinky S&M sex that they are going to have as the movie unfolds. Check out photos from Day 1 of the filming of Fifty Shades of Grey in the gallery and then click below to see a bonus photo shared from the movie set shared on Twitter by a producer of the film.
