'Enough Said': Julia Louis-Dreyfus Q&A turns into adorable mini-'Seinfeld' reunion -- VIDEO


If anyone can make you seek out the bittersweet romantic comedy Enough Said maybe George Costanza’s mother can pressure you into it.

Enough Said, which is in theaters now, stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a massage therapist who discovers that one of her clients (Catherine Keener) is the ex-wife of her new boyfriend (a lovable, lunkish James Gandolfini) and decides to use the relationship to secretly gather intel on her new man.

At a recent Q&A for the Nicole Holofcener film, Louis-Dreyfus talked a lot about her late co-star Gandolfini, whose final lead performance is also one of his most sweet and tender, and making the leap from cringe-comedy like her Emmy-winning role on Veep to a film with a more dramatic and romantic edge.

But then, at the very end, the entire show was stolen by one 85-year-old woman …


George Clooney pushes 'The Monuments Men' to 2014

Another 2013 movie is on hold.

George Clooney told the Los Angeles Times Tuesday that his World War II drama The Monuments Men would not meet its scheduled Dec. 18 opening and will instead hit theaters in early 2014.  A representative from Sony Pictures, who is distributing the film, confirmed the news to EW and stated that the film would be released sometime in the first quarter of 2014, but no release date has been set.


Steve Carell drama 'Foxcatcher' postpones opening date to 2014


We’re going to gave to wait a little longer to see Steve Carell’s eerie turn as a millionaire chemical heir who turns homicidal in the drama Foxcatcher.

The movie, directed by Moneyball and Capote filmmaker Bennett Miller, was originally set to open Dec. 20, but tonight distributor Sony Pictures Classics announced it would be pushed back to an unspecified date in 2014.

The studio said it supported “the decision of the filmmakers to allow for more time to finish the film,” but there can’t be much enthusiasm for the movie over at the America Film Institute, which had announced plans to feature Foxcatcher as the opening weekend gala at its November film festival.

The conversation begins …

The Toronto International Film Festival unofficially kicks off the Oscar race each year as the best-of-the-best line up for their shot at awards glory – and the movie-fan attention (and ticket sales) that inevitably accompanies it.

Benedict Cumberbatch faces a disturbing secret about own safety in 'The Fifth Estate' clip -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 12.00.57 PM

If there’s one thing Julian Assange does not lack, it’s confidence. But his epic self-assurance crumbles spectacularly in this clip from the Wikileaks thriller The Fifth Estate, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the eccentric hacker-journalist.


Toronto: '12 Years a Slave' makes a devastating impression, with Oscar nominations a certainty

12 Years a Slave is the movie that left a whole theater speechless. And that’s saying something.

Festival-goers tend to gab easily about their likes or dislikes as they walk out of a film, but the crowd exiting Friday night’s emotionally crushing 12 Years a Slave showing struggled to express their overwhelming admiration. They communicated at first mostly in deep exhales and short exclamations like “Wow,” “Amazing,” and “Oh My God …”

Based on a true-life story that starts in 1841, Chiwetel Ejiofor stars as a musician — a free, educated, and rather well-to-do Northern black man — who is kidnapped during a trip to Washington D.C. and transported to the deep South, where he is sold into slavery with no recourse for contacting his family or restoring his legal liberty. It opens to the public on Oct. 18.

Director Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame) and his impressive cast — which includes Michael Fassbender, Alfre Woodard, Brad Pitt and Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o – took the stage after the credits rolled, and the audience managed to shake off its collective shellshock for a standing ovation.

Consider this the first film to qualify as a sure-thing Best Picture nominee, and a formidable contender to win. McQueen, Ejiofor and Nyong’o, who displays immense strength in the face of unconscionable suffering as Patsey, a fellow plantation slave, should also prepare for a long season of red carpets.


Toronto: 'The Fifth Estate' stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Daniel Brühl are vulnerable to the wrath of Assange

Benedict Cumberbatch and Daniel Brühl probably shouldn’t store any compromising materials on their phones or computers.

The stars of the WikiLeaks cyber-drama The Fifth Estate admit they would be easy targets for vengeful hackers.

Or even friendly ones.

Brühl, who plays conscience-stricken WikiLeaks activist Daniel Domscheit-Berg, met the real-life man during filming and said this computer savvy underwhelmed the tech mastermind.

“When I first met Daniel, he told me it would take him probably five minutes to get into my computer and get all the information. So I changed my passwords — and now I don’t remember them,” Brühl said at the movie’s Toronto International Film Festival press conference.

Cumberbatch, who stars as divisive WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, also admitted to being “computer illiterate.” READ FULL STORY

Toronto: Benedict Cumberbatch praised, but 'The Fifth Estate' Oscar chances spring leak after critical jabs


The WikiLeaks film The Fifth Estate has proven to be as divisive as its subject.

The journalism drama, about the early David vs. Goliath victories of Julian Assange’s truth-telling tech movement, kicked off the Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday night.

There was praise for Benedict Cumberbatch’s incarnation of the white-haired cyber-guru — who is a hero to some, and an instigator of chaos to others. And the film got an extended standing ovation at the premiere, but early reviews were generally harsh, which could sap its Oscar hopes.

EW’s Owen Gleiberman split from the naysayers and gave The Fifth Estate a strong endorsement, calling it a “feverishly edgy and exciting drama.”

At the after-party launching the 38th annual festival, which is seen throughout Hollywood as the official start of good-movie-season — reactions to The Fifth Estate were so-so. The movie, directed by Dreamgirls and Gods and Monsters director Bill Condon definitely had some supporters, but there tended to be more zeal from its detractors.
