American Sniper Is Popular, But Is It Misleading?


Bradley Cooper Clint Eastwood

Over the past few weeks, American Sniper has been touted as an example of quality military action, one of Clint Eastwood’s best, and even received several award nods. However, the film has also ignited plenty of controversy over its depictions of a soldier’s return home. Ostensibly, American Sniper is a character study of a tortured soldier.

Bradley Cooper portrays Chris Kyle in American Sniper.

The movie’s detractors point out Chris Kyle’s apparent lack of trauma – both in real-life and his onscreen portrayal. Intentionally or not, Kyle has painted himself as a remorseless sniper who said his job was “fun” and wished he could return to Iraq to fight even more, and who made millions of dollars and gained worldwide fame writing about his exploits.

Is American Sniper's Chris Kyle Really A Coward?


Bradley Cooper Clint Eastwood Michael Moore

American Sniper may be on-course to be the biggest grossing war movie of all time, and it may have scored surprise Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Best Actor, but should we really go along with the whole hero narrative? Not according to documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, who has described snipers as "cowards".

Chris Kyle, played by Bradley Cooper, is credited as the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history. He was killed at a Texas shooting range by a former soldier after returning from Iraq in 2013, though his Hollywood story was already in the works. The movie has already set box-office records for a January movie and pulled in an estimated $105 million for the long holiday weekend.

After Entering The Oscars Race, "American Sniper" Dominates January Box Office


Bradley Cooper Clint Eastwood

American Sniper is on track to win this weekend’s box office. Unsurprising, given the six Oscar nods the Bradley Cooper starrer scooped up this week, including Cooper’s third Best Actor nod in as many years.  It earned six Oscar nominations on Thursday, including Best Picture and a Best Actor nod for Bradley Cooper. The Time Warner release even made it seem like even more of an event via asking IMAX to do a lightning-quick conversion for yesterday’s wide release.

American Sniper Review


Excellent

Once again, director Clint Eastwood lurks in the background, springing a stunningly atmospheric thriller on audiences when they least expect it. Honestly, for an 84-year-old Eastwood is an astoundingly nimble filmmaker, able to take an audience right into a tense situation while never cheating with flashy movie trickery. This film grabs us without mercy, pulling us into a morally complex situation that gets our head spinning.

It's the true story of Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper), the Navy Seal sniper credited with the most official kills after serving four tours of duty in Iraq. Based on his memoir, the film traces him from his religious upbringing, during which he's taught about guns and encroaching evil from an early age. So after the 9/11 attacks, he enlists in the Navy. His sharp-shooting skills are quickly apparent. And as he prepares for his first assignment abroad, he romances local girl Taya (Sienna Miller), a feisty woman who knows what she's getting into. Chris, on the other hand, is instantly thrown into a quandary when his first targets as a sniper are a woman and child who seem to be carrying a bomb. Over the next few years, his marriage to Taya and his moral centre are tested by his military service. And when an Iraqi sniper challenges him, he takes it personally.

Jason Hall's script sticks close to Chris' perspective, which is intensified by Eastwood's coolly efficient direction and Cooper's beefy performance. By putting the audience so tightly within Chris' point of view, we are unable to escape the psychological impact of his experiences, even if real warfare is no doubt much more horrific even than what's depicted here. Cleverly, the film never asks us to judge Chris, merely to see how battle changes him. And Cooper is terrific at finding tiny details that reveal both Chris' altered state and the core stability that never leaves him.

Clint Eastwood On Crucial Research For 'American Sniper'


Clint Eastwood Bradley Cooper

Production for 'American Sniper' began back in May, 2012, after Warner Brothers acquired the rights to Chris Kyle's autobiography of the same name. On 2nd February, 2013, Kyle was shot dead at a shooting range in Texas by a fellow ex-marine, suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. That sort of devastating twist in the tale was enough to cause director Steven Spielberg to leave the project, yet it wasn't enough to keep Clint Eastwood from stepping in and bringing the hero's story to the big screen.

"The studio called and asked if I would be interested in being involved with this picture," explained Eastwood, "and ironically I was reading his book. In fact I was down to about the last 30 pages." Eastwood officially joined the project as a director on 21st August 2013. After receiving the offer, he sat down and finished the book, calling back the following day to accept the job.

'American Sniper' Is A Late Arrival To The Oscars Party


Bradley Cooper Clint Eastwood

The heart-pounding teaser trailer for American Sniper had so much promise that perhaps a current "fresh" score of 74% for Clint Eastwood's movie seems underwhelming. That figure will probably climb in the coming days leaving the tense drama starring Bradley Cooper with a one way ticket to the Oscars.

Why Were Jennifer Lawrence And Amy Adams Paid Less Than Their Male Co-Stars?


Jennifer Lawrence Amy Adams Bradley Cooper Christian Bale Jeremy Renner

The confidential files just keep on leaking from Sony and the latest batch has ignited some gender-related controversy. Basically, after some financial info was leaked, it was revealed that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams (whose names you may recognize from, well, every headline this year,) were paid significantly less than their male co-stars for their work in the Oscar-winning film American Hustle.

Jennifer LawrenceAmy Adams
It seems like for Lawrence [l] and Adams [r], the pay gap is still a reality.

Aah, pay gap, how we’ve missed you. Well, not really, because the pay gap never went anywhere, not even within the film industry apparently. The good folks over at The Daily Beast have unearthed a message from a message sent from Andrew Gumpert, President of Business Affairs and Administration for Columbia Pictures to Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Doug Belgrad, President of SPE Motion Picture Group on December 5, 2013, confirming that Adams and Lawrence received roughly 7% of the film’s talent budget each. Meanwhile, co-stars Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale got... get ready for this... 9% each. I’m no math expert here, but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t even come out to the often cited statistic of 81 cents to a dollar.

Since Bradley Cooper is considered one of the most handsome and successful men in Hollywood, it is hard to believe that the 39-year-old actor had issues with drug and alcohol abuse in the past, and his road to recovery has been far from easy.

However, instead of letting these struggles get the better of him, including his father's death in 2011, Cooper spoke to Vanity Fair about using his experiences with addiction to help him prepare for his most challenging role to date in Clint Eastwood's upcoming biopic, 'American Sniper,' in which he portrays Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle.

Serena Review


Good

Gorgeously shot, this period drama has a terrific setting and vivid characters, but is edited together in a jarring way that distances the audience from the situations. As the story progresses, the film also shifts strangely from a riveting exploration of a power couple with a pioneering spirit to a more melodramatic thriller about corruption and murder. It's consistently engaging thanks to the power of the cast, but it should have also been darkly moving as well.

The story is set in the late 1920s, as lumber baron George (Bradley Cooper) struggles under the economic pressures of the impending Great Depression. Then he meets Serena (Jennifer Lawrence) and it's love at first sight. A feisty, outspoken woman with a background in logging, she immediately ruffles feathers in George's camp by giving out advice that's actually helpful. George's two righthand men, accountant Buchanan (David Dencik) and foreman Campbell (Sean Harris), both quietly wonder if this woman is going to mess up their all-male world of underhanded bribes and physical danger. But she develops a rapport with George's hunting tracker Galloway (Rhys Ifans). Meanwhile, the local sheriff (Toby Jones) is trying to get George's land declared protected national parkland.

Oscar-winning Danish director Susanne Bier (In a Better World) gives the film a grand scale with expansive mountain landscapes and a sweeping romantic tone. The Western-style bustle of the logging camp is lively and authentic, as is the continual threat of death or dismemberment on the job. Against this, Cooper and Lawrence have terrific chemistry both with each other and the characters around them, sharply portrayed by strong actors who know how to invest plenty of attitude into even a small role.

Continue reading: Serena Review

Serena - Featurette


"When I first read the script," begins director Susanne Bier, "I called Nick Wechsler (one of the film's producers) and I said 'I think this should be Bradley Cooper and Jenifer Lawrence'". In this featurette for 'Serena', the two lead actors discuss their mutual respect for one-another, and their excitement to work together on the film. Bradley Cooper states "I've sort of hit the jack-pot, being able to work with Jennifer Lawrence." In response, Lawrence explains why their previous work together has helped, as they found it "easy to just kind of jump into it." 'Serena' serves as the third time Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have worked together on a film.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Review


Extraordinary

By refusing to follow the usual formula, filmmaker James Gunn has made Marvel's best-yet movie, a summer action-adventure that provides more cinematic fun than the rest of the year's blockbusters rolled into one. It's shamelessly entertaining, keeping the focus on sparky characters even as the action spirals into exhilarating set-pieces around them. And the best thing is that the film isn't actually about the big plot: it's about a group of people who should hate each other but instead come together as a team.

In a pre-logo sequence set in 1988 America, a young boy is kidnapped by aliens. Some 25 years later, Peter (Chris Pratt) has become an ace thief who roams the galaxy in search of cash. Curious and charming, he can get himself out of most scrapes, but when he collects a mysterious orb for a client he ends up as the target of two bounty hunters, the raccoon-like Rocket and tree-like Groot (voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel). And the villainously destructive Ronan (Lee Pace) sends his best fighter Gamora (Zoe Saldana) to get the orb for his own nefarious plan. Rounded up and thrown into prison, Peter, Gamora, Rocket and Groot stage a daring escape with the help of literal-minded muscleman Drax (Dave Bautista), then must work together to deal with this troublesome orb. So they contact Peter's mentor/nemesis Yondu (Michael Rooker) before taking on Ronan and his second-best fighter, Gamora's half-cyborg sister Nebula (Karen Gillan).

Gunn gives the film a look and tone unlike anything in the Marvel universe, with colourful ships, sassy humour and freewheeling action that propels the story and deepens the character at the same time. It also makes the most of the well-worn 1980s mixtape Peter uses as his own personal soundtrack. It's the kind of riotously thrill ride that makes us hold on for dear life, loving every twist and turn. And since it's so tightly focused on the characters, the action plot involving the orb merely adds texture around the edges. As do terrific actors like Glenn Close and John C. Reilly in small but pivotal roles.

Now, he leads an all star cast in Marvel’s latest multi-movie deal, and if the reviews are anything to go by, he’s got himself a franchise to be proud of.

"What's really nice about this movie is that I believe we did something that's never been done before ...

London’s Leicester Square played host to the Guardian of The Galaxy premiere last night. The latest Marvel adventure has been attracting strong praise for the critics ahead of what is expected to be a big box office weekend for action-comedy.

“They're the thieves, the bounty hunters and the neglected”, explains Zoe Saldana of their characters in this featurette. “It's not a typical superhero movie.” Chris Pratt – who plays the ‘hero’ role, adds: “Peter Quill is the only human in this crazy world. He doesn't have superhuman strength or the abillity to fly but he uses his cunning and his charm to get himself out of situations.” Finally, Bradley Cooper – who plays a machine gun-wielding Racoon, Rocket - spoke highly of the melding of genres, both action and comedy. “There's a lot of humour in this one and a lot of heart. There's nothing like it, that's for sure.”

The film’s stars, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, John C. Reilly, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, Michael Rooker, Dave Bautista, Laura Haddock, Glenn Close, Ophelia Lovibond, Peter Serafinowicz and Melia Kreiling – amongst others – were in attendance at the glitzy London premiere last night.

Robert Downey Jr. is the highest paid actor in Hollywood for a second year running, Forbes has announced, putting Iron Man star top of the list with earnings totalling around $75 million. It is his involvement with the Marvel franchise that boosts his position to pole – the movie bagged around $1.2b when it was released last May and comprises the bulk of his counted earnings.

Given Iron Man’s heavy involvement with the Avengers team – the highest grossing single film in the entirety of the company’s output – Downey Jr. presence in the upcoming instalment, Age of Ultron, means he’ll be ‘there or there abouts’ for a few years to come, we’d predict.

In what is possibly the most epic bromance of the summer, Vin Diesel plays a humanoid tree named Groot, who is only capable of saying the same phrase over and over: "I'm Groot", whilst Bradley Cooper lends his voice to a trash-talking mercenary raccoon named Rocket. Amazingly, the two actors never worked together in the studio, and Diesel the CGI team and director James Gunn with making sure their on-screen relationship was out of this world.

New 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Trailer: What We Noticed


Chris Pratt Zoe Saldana Bradley Cooper Vin Diesel Glenn Close Dave Bautista Josh Brolin James Gunn John C Reilly Karen Gillan Benicio Del Toro

Prepare to check out the new trailer for the upcoming summer blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy, which is due to open from the end of July. James Gunn's visualisation of Marvel's lesser-known comic book series recruits a stellar cast in an outer space setting with jaw-dropping special effects and rib-tickling one-liners.

Chris Pratt takes the lead alongside Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Josh Brolin, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close Benicio Del Toro and Dave Bautista in what looks to be one of the action highlights of summer 2014.

In a nutshell, Pratt's adventurer, Peter Quill, gets stranded in space and unites a team of unlikely ex-con aliens in order to mount a defence against the cosmic threat of Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Trailer


Peter Quill runs into some trouble when he discovers an unusual looking orb that happens to be hunted by the merciless admiral Ronan and his army of miscreants. He is an Earthling; an unusual race within his neighbourhood in which he grew up after being removed for his home planet as a child. Naming himself the Star-Lord, he likes to think he's one heck of a superhero - but he's about to meet his match (or should we say 'matches'?). After being arrested by Ronan's people, he is greeted by four other alien outlaws. First there is the enormous Drax the Destroyer who is determined to use his supernatural strength to avenge his murdered family; then there's cyborg Gamora, the daughter of Thanos (an even bigger villain in this story); Rocket, a psychotic gun-toting raccoon; and half-man half-tree Groot. They may be distrustful of each other, but they've got to stick together if they want to save the universe from certain annihilation.

Since when did superhero films have to be serious? Marvel apply comedy to comics with 'Guardians Of The Galaxy', which is based on the original comics by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. The movie has been directed  by James Gunn ('Super', 'Slither', 'PG Porn') and co-written by Nicole Perlman and is due for UK release on July 31st 2014.

Model Best Friends: Cara Delevingne And Suki Waterhouse


Cara Delevingne Suki Waterhouse Bradley Cooper

Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse are definitely the hottest celeb BFFs on the scene (sorry Kim Kardashian and Blac Chyna!). The pair of stunning British models are currently the face of Burberry and have been spotted at all of the coolest international events, from partying it up at the Cannes Film Festival to appearing arm-in-arm at the afterparty for the Fendi flagship store launch in Mayfair.

Suki Waterhouse Cara Delevingne Friendship Suki and Cara are possibly the coolest set of celebrity BFFs on the scene

Cara, who has recently split from Fast & Furious actress Michelle Rodriguez (some cited her friendship with Suki as the cause for the split) is one of the world’s most in demand models of the moment, while Suki Waterhouse can lay claim to Hollywood heavyweight Bradley Cooper. The pals are definitely the ‘it’ girls of the moment and are currently living together in a trendy London home. But how did the two blondes get to where they are today?

Guardians Of The Galaxy Trailer


Peter Quill is a fearless Earthling pilot who rather proudly proclaims himself to be an outlaw, going by the nickname Star-Lord. As a child, he was taken from his home planet and forced to live around various alien races, but even he is in for a surprise when he is captured by merciless hunters led by the evil admiral Ronan after he tries to make off with an extraordinary orb. It is during his imprisonment that he meets four other intrepid outlaws. There’s Drax the Destroyer, a man of muscle hellbent on avenging the tragic murders of his family; Gamora, a green-skinned cyborg who is the rebellious daughter of Ronan’s boss Thanos; Rocket, a genetically modified raccoon with incredible firearm dexterity; and Groot, a half-man half-tree creature who knows little about the technological world. Despite their reluctance, the five must join together to save the universe from Thanos’ dastardly plans.

Is Bradley Cooper The 'Master Manipulator' In Jennifer Esposito's Memoir?


Bradley Cooper Jennifer Esposito

Bradley Cooper’s 2007 marriage to Jennifer Esposito was so short it didn't really seem worth taking about. Until now that is. In Jennifer’s Way, the actress’ recent autobiography, she speaks of one particularly bad relationship where she labels her ex a ‘master manipulator’. While the ex in question is never named, all signs seem to point towards one Bradley Cooper as the man in question.

Bradley Cooper Oscars 2014Bradley Cooper was married to Jennifer Esposito for five months in 2007

Back in 2006, Jennifer Esposito was starring in sitcom ‘Related’ on The WB network, previously she’d been known for her role as Stacey, the secretary of Michael J Fox’s Deputy Mayor on ‘Spin City’. As for Bradley, his Hollywood career was just beginning to blossom, having starred in ABC’s ‘Alias’ for five seasons and hitting the big screen in Wedding Crashers. When the pair became an item in 2006 they kept things low key, to the point that when asked about their rumoured romance on that year's Golden Globes red carpet Esposito simply said, "I'm not answering that."

Bradley Cooper Is NOT The New Indiana Jones. Got That, Internet?


Bradley Cooper Harrison Ford INDIANA JONES Disney

On Wednesday (March 26, 2014) a new report on the Latino Review suggested Disney was ready to go ahead with a new INDIANA JONES movie. Not too much of a surprise you may have thought, and you'd be right, a fifth Indie movie has been rumored for a couple of years. Only, this report suggested the studio was ready to replace Harrison Ford with Bradley Cooper.

The story also suggested Frank Darabont - who apparently wrote a far better script for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull than the one produced - had pitched a new idea for a new movie.

Jennifer Lawrence Gets Her Party On In 'American Hustle' Deleted Lip Sync Scene


Jennifer Lawrence Lupita Nyong'o Bradley Cooper Christian Bale Amy Adams

Jennifer Lawrence has delighted owners of the recently released American Hustle DVD by appearing in one of the disc's deleted scenes lip-synching to Santana whilst wearing rubber gloves and cleaning. Those who have seen the film will remember a similar, shorter scene where Jennifer mimes and dances to Wings' 'Live and Let Die' in front of her bemused son but the extended 'Evil Ways' clip goes all the way.

"Guardians Of The Galaxy": Meet The World's Most Dangerous Raccoon (And The Voice Behind Him)


Bradley Cooper James Gunn

The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer has been out for a week now – plenty of time to get acquainted with the rag tag band of misfits, who call themselves the Guardians. These aren’t your regular superheroes we’re talking about here. And despite the fact that the team includes a green alien assassin and a treelike humanoid, the Guardian getting the most flack has to be Rocket. You know, the raccoon?

Rocket Racoon
Rocket, looking cooler than any racoon ever could.

Rocket Racoon didn’t get a lot of screentime in the trailer – presumably the visual gag of him being, you know, a raccoon, was enough to make people remember him.

'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Character Rundown: What You Need To Know


Chris Pratt Zoe Saldana Bradley Cooper Vin Diesel Lee Pace Karen Gillan

By now nobody is questioning Disney and Marvel’s decision to invest in the Avengers franchise. It started out a bit rough - 2008’s The Incredible Hulk is still a mostly ignored part of the cinematic universe – but by Iron Man 3, the series was grossing billions. Now that Marvel is on sure footing and the cinematic universe has an established fanbase, the studio is making the next move with Guardians of the Galaxy.

Guardians of the GalaxyGuardians of the Galaxy is one of the most aniticpated movies of the year

On Tuesday the studio released a trailer and it looked like a hot mess. Granted, a hot mess featuring Chris Pratt, but there was also a talking raccoon. It had the unmistakable feel of an 80s sci-fi flick. On that note, here’s what you need to know about GotG’s bunch of A-holes for this movie to make any sense.

Who Is Suki Waterhouse? Hint: She's Not Just Bradley Cooper's Girlfriend


Suki Waterhouse Bradley Cooper

When Bradley Cooper began dating relatively unknown model, Suki Waterhouse, back in March of 2013, everyone was a little confused. Bradley had just come out of a long term relationship with fellow Hollywood star, Renee Zellweger, but was suddenly seemingly serious with Suki, who had practically appeared out of thin air.

Suki, who was born in 1992, is 17 years younger than her Oscar nominated beau and since beginning her now year long relationship with Bradley, her career has gone from strength to strength. Since Bradley announced at the BAFTA awards on Sunday night that she is “the one” for him, we take the time to really delve in and ask, who is Suki Waterhouse?

Bradley Cooper has revealed that he attended a White House state dinner in honour of the French President Francois Hollande...completely commando. The 39-year-old actor told Ellen that he met President Barack Obama and other state officials whilst he wasn't wearing any underwear. That's not the only reason the event was particularly uncomfortable at the event: he admitted to wearing a tuxedo so tight he could barely breathe.

Jennifer Lawrence Stained 'American Hustle' Dress With Doritos!


Jennifer Lawrence Bradley Cooper Christian Bale Jeremy Renner Amy Adams Michael Wilkinson

For most of us, white dresses tend to be avoided due to the catastrophic stains which inevitably and quite magically appear all over the material and which are, quite inexplicably, impossible to scrub out. Fortunately, we're not the only ones and even the terribly glamorous and confident Jennifer Lawrence is not immune from destroying her wardrobe, even on a film set.

American Hustle
The cast of American Hustle, Jennifer Lawrence's pristine white dress can be seen on the far right.

Lawrence's white dress in American Hustle was the victim of Doritos stains and on more than one occasion. As a result, the film's costume designer Michael Wilkinson was forced to make a number of dresses for the clumsy star. Wilkinson, who is nominated for an Oscar for his work on American Hustle, was recently interviewed by Vanity Fair and he joked about Lawrence's junk food habits. He said "Jennifer Lawrence is a very, let's say, raw and intuitive young lady, and she's not against eating Doritos and snack food in her costume. So we were glad that we had a couple [of backups]."
