The framing device of the new, 15-years-in-the-making documentary For No Good Reason finds Johnny Depp paying a visit to the film’s subject, British artist Ralph Steadman, at his home in Britain. Director Charlie Paul admits getting that footage proved a little tricky given that Steadman was initially none to keen on participating in the project at all, and Johnny Depp is, well, Johnny Depp.

Anyone who’s seen Sophie’s Choice knows the scene. A frightened Polish mother stands in line for the German concentration camps, holding her young daughter while her young son huddles closely against her. A rapacious Nazi officer makes some lurid remarks and then demands that Sophie choose which of her children will survive. Only one. The other will die. Sophie protests. She screams. And then… she decides.
If that scene — punctuated by Meryl Streep’s silent scream — is forever branded on the back of your skull, imagine if you were the girl being ripped from Streep’s arms. Jennifer Lawn Lejeune was just 4 years old and had never acted before she was cast as Sophie’s daughter, and that day of filming was practically as harrowing for her as it was for the film’s characters.

Stopping crime? Warding off evil? Saving the human race? It’s just another day on the job for Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man.
But while Spidey spends most of his days keeping the good citizens of New York out of harm’s way, this particular meeting is a little different — namely because it involves an Oscorp employee named Max (Jamie Foxx) who will become significant in Spider-Man’s life later on. READ FULL STORY
Come hungry, leave happy.
That’s probably the feeling you’ll have after seeing Chef, the new movie from writer/director Jon Favreau. It premiered at last month’s SXSW festival in Austin, and EW has an exclusive clip of the food lover’s film.
Favreau stars as Carl, who quits his job as a chef at a top Los Angeles restaurant and decides to open a food truck in Miami to stir up his creative juices, sauces, and more! The cast includes Sofia Vergara as Favreau’s ex-wife and John Leguizamo as his friend who both helps out in the new culinary venture and with Favreau’s son, played by Emjay Anthony. In the clip, Vergara calls in to check on the progress of the other three men in a typical, overbearing, motherly way. Watch below: READ FULL STORY
Loosely based on a true story, Decoding Annie Parker follows one family’s history of breast cancer — and the woman who teamed up with scientists to find out if the disease has a genetic link. The film, directed by Steven Bernstein, stars Samantha Morton as Annie Parker and Helen Hunt as the lead researcher on her case.
And in an exclusive clip from the film, we are taken back to 1974, when a food fight goes horribly wrong after Annie’s sister Joan (played by Marley Shelton) admits she’s found a lump in her breast.
There are essentially two kinds of alien movies — the kind in which bicycles are magically transformed into flying machines, and the kind in which people’s insides are rather less magically transformed into lunch.
As we inch closer to the May 2 release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we’re learning more about the bad guys Spider-Man will face—like Dane DeHaan’s Harry Osborn, a.k.a. Green Goblin. Harry and Peter Parker were childhood friends before Harry left for boarding school. Harry returns to New York to discover that his father, Oscrop’s Norman Osborn, is terminally ill and his son is about to inherit more than just the family business. “It’s a complicated storyline,” DeHaan tells EW. “But to boil it down: This is the origin story for Harry Osborn becoming Green Goblin.”
Making the physical transformation from Harry to Green Goblin wasn’t easy, but the process did help the actor get into the right mindset: “When you look at yourself in the mirror and you’re in the suit and full-on Goblin makeup? You feel like a badass,” says DeHaan. “I look at myself and think, ‘Hell, yeah, I’m the Green Goblin! Let’s go do this.’”
