“I too am not a bit tamed—I too am untranslatable; I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.” —Walt Whitman

Michael Keaton isn’t mid-sneeze in the photo above from Birdman. Actually, he’s executing the fierce war cry of Birdman, the iconic movie superhero who his character, Riggan Thomson, was famous for—before walking away from the role after Birdman III 20 years ago. In the new film, directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Riggan has bet everything he has on adapting, directing, and starring in a Broadway play based on Raymond Carver’s What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. He too wants to make one final barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world, to prove his worth, not only to critics and his daughter, but himself. READ FULL STORY

Edward Norton reflects on not being the Hulk

When Edward Norton and Marvel parted ways in 2010 over the role of the Hulk, there was some real rage. Both camps lobbed broadsides at each other, with Marvel dropping a preemptive bomb that implied that Norton had to go because he lacked the “collaborative spirit of [the Avengers‘] other talented cast members.” Norton’s agent angrily responded that Marvel’s unilateral decision to end good-faith negotiations with Norton was purely financial. For his part, Norton took the high road with an earnest missive on Facebook where he expressed regret that he wouldn’t be joining all the Marvel superheroes in The Avengers.

Four years later, Norton has a slightly different explanation for what happened then, which ultimately resulted in Mark Ruffalo taking over as Bruce Banner and the Hulk. When he spoke to NPR’s Terry Gross on Fresh Air, Norton, who is a leading contender for an Oscar nomination for his work in this month’s Birdman, made the 2010 parting seem like it was very much his artistic choice: READ FULL STORY

'Grand Budapest Hotel': Take a peek inside Wes Anderson's inn -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Grand-Budapest-Hotel-02When Wes Anderson thinks “hotel,” he doesn’t think bed bugs and low-pressure showers. He thinks luxury, in the way the best hotels used to be run.

“In those days, it was the hotel’s job to take care of all of your needs — before you even knew you needed them,” says Bob Balaban, one of the many familiar faces gracing Anderson’s latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel.

In the exclusive behind-the-scenes video below, see Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, and many more Anderson first-timers and favorites talk about why they needed to inhabit this world: READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Edward Norton versus Michael Keaton in 'Birdman'; Plus Liam Neeson, Keri Russell, more

Yesterday we reported the initial casting for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman, but one of the key parts was left out of the announcement: Who would be the foil to Michael Keaton’s character’s comeback. Wednesday it was announced that Edward Norton would take on the role of the egotistical theater actor, which sounds like another inspired casting choice. We’re also kind of excited to see the failed Bruce Banner go head to head with one of history’s most beloved Bruce Waynes. Norton just wrapped The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson’s follow-up to Moonrise Kingdom. [Deadline]

• Liam Neeson is in talks to join Seth MacFarlane’s sophomore film, A Million Ways to Die in the West. Amanda Seyfried and Charlize Theron are already set to star in the film as MacFarlane’s ex-girlfriend and an outlaw’s wife, respectively. If the deal goes through, Neeson would play Theron’s outlaw husband. [THR]

Wes Anderson and Edward Norton talk 'Moonrise Kingdom'

There’s no other way to put it: Wes Anderson’s latest film, Moonrise Kingdom, is extremely Wes Anderson-y: quirky, warm-hearted, and visually stunning. Starring newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward, the movie is about a couple of pre-teen runaways who are pursued by a scout master (Edward Norton), a local police officer (Bruce Willis), and the girl’s parents (Bill Murray and Frances McDormand).
