Ark Art?: Darren Aronofsky Opens “Noah” Art Exhibit

Erik Parker

When I first heard of the new $125 million film, Noah starring Russell Crowe, I have to admit I thought it sounded a bit like an SNL parody. But after checking out the cast (Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman, Anthony Hopkins, Nick Nolte, Frank Langella) and then seeing it was headed up by director, Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The ...

Javert’s Retort

Screen shot 2013-01-03 at 10.51.51 AM

After Adam Lambert slammed Les Mis on twitter calling the bad singing "distracting", Russell Crowe answered with this tweet. I totally agree with Madame about Javert's horrendous singing but this film is so breathtakingly amazing to me that I can forgive it and the other sins that were made as well, namely: Marius sounding like Kermit but looking ...

Leaked Video of the Day: “One Day More” from Les Miz

Screen shot 2012-12-19 at 8.03.57 PM

Omg, look, it's the rousing "One Day More" number that ends Act 1 of Les Miserables, courtesy of the Spanish television network La Sexta. Eddie Redmayne slays it, of course, Amanda Seyfried sounds perfectly serviceable (I don't know what everyone's kvetching about), Hugh Jackman is doing his slightly pretentious Hugh Jackman thing, and Russell ...

Wet with Anticipation

So there's this whole Noah movie in production, and yesterday we saw our first look of Russell Crowe sporting some antediluvian fashion, and my first reaction of course was YUCK. Biblical epics only work for me if you've got Victor Mature in a loincloth and Gina Lollobrigida in a fabulous gold headdress. Fat Russell Crowe in a burlap sack? Not so ... See the Rest

Newly single Russell Crowe steps out of his trailer in full costume as he heads to the New York City set of "Noah"

A massive Russell Crowe, fresh from a relationship gone south, emerged today disgruntled and in costume from his trailer on the New York City set of Darren Aronofsky's Noah. We understand Crowe's playing the title character, but it looks as if he could play the ark itself. Just sayin'. Meanwhile, Crowe's costume looks like something off a runway at ... See the Rest

Les Miz Extended Trailer

Screen shot 2012-09-20 at 5.04.08 PM

Here's an extended look at the upcoming musical, and it's a knockout. Viewers are taken behind the scenes, where we see Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, and Amanda Seyfried singing and explaining the process of creating the movie. Director Tom Hooper made the rather radical decision to have the cast sing live as they taped, as opposed to ... See the Rest

Crowe Crows

Accepting his "actor of our lifetime" prize at the Empire Film Awards last night in London, Russell Crowe read aloud to the audience a poem he wrote that included paraphrasing from legendary sources:  "I am celebrating my love for you with a pint of beer and a new tattoo. "Imagine there's no heaven. "I don't know if you're loving ... See the Rest
