Why Did Christian Bale Quit New Movie?

1/18/2016 9:05am EST
Christian Bale
Christian Bale is no longer playing the role of Enzo Ferrari in an upcoming biopic due to concerns about the weight gain required for the role.

Deadline has the report that despite transforming himself for numerous other roles throughout his career, Bale has decided that the weight required for 'Ferrari' was simply too much, too soon, with filming set to start this spring.

In the past, Bale has taken on roles all over the scale, from his emaciated look in 'The Machinist' to his overweight bulge in 'American Hustle'. Bale reportedly weighed only 121 pounds during production of 'The Machini...

Did Steve Jobs' Widow Try To Stop The New Biopic?

10/9/2015 12:35pm EDT
Steve Jobs Widow Laurene Powell Reportedly Told Leonardo DiCapri
'Steve Jobs', the long-awaited biopic of the late Apple CEO of the same name arrives in theaters today. Early reviews state that the movie gives Jobs credit for his many innovations but does not paint a flattering picture of his personal life. Which might explain why Jobs' widow, Laurene Powell, apparently tried to keep the movie from happening.

That's the allegation made by several figures close to the movie in a feature by The Hollywood Reporter this week.

"They haven't helped," said Danny Boyle, the film's director of Powell Jobs and current Apple CEO Tim Cook. "There's been some tough...

'The Big Short' Not Short On Talent: Pitt, Bale And Gosling To S
You've got your A-list casts, and then you've got this: Brad Pitt, Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling, all crammed into a single movie.

And it's real.

The movie? "The Big Short," an adaptation of "The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine," a book by Michael Lewis.

The subject? The 2008 financial crisis.

According to Variety (who broke the story), "The Big Short" will follow "several key people who played a role in creating the disastrous credit bubble."

Yeah, admittedly the subject matter's not what we expected (probably something involving life-or-death physical violence... maybe cool ...

Christian Bale Gets Biblical In First Trailer For 'Exodus: Gods
Christian Bale and Ridley Scott are teaming up for Exodus: Gods and Kings, which just got a first trailer that proves it aims to beat out Noah as the best Biblical epic this year.

In typical Ridley Scott fashion, the period piece will feature giant battles and sweeping sets, as seen in the first seconds of a trailer when two armies charge and a cloaked figure looks over a populated ravine at night. Joel Edgerton's Ramses snarls to Bale's Moses, "You say you didn't cause all this, you say this is not all your fault – so let's just see who is more effective at killing: you or me."

Happy New Years everyone and welcome to 2014!

Doing some simple math, 40 years ago would make it 1974.

Christian Bale is still trying to lose the remainder of the 43 pounds he gained to play a con artist in American Hustle, after eating tons of greasy and fatty foods.

The 39 year-old actor ploughed his way through junk food to expand his waistline, however he's finding it a little harder to drop the excess weight, months after completing filming.

He tells People.com, "I ate lots of doughnuts, a whole lot of cheeseburgers and whatever I could get my hands on. I literally ate anything that came my way. I was about 185 and went up to 228. I'm still working it off."

Box Office Predictions: Christian Bale Won't Defeat Jennifer Lawrence... This Weekend

This could be an entirely different headline when American Hustle opens. Then again, Lawrence is also in American Hustle.

1) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire- 35M Weekend, 345M Total

This is a traditionally slow Box Office weekend, and that will definitely be true for everything that isn’t Hunger Games or Frozen. Everything else will struggle, but these two should keep chugging along at a decent pace.

Frozen remains a top choice, and really the only choice for families. It will continue to perform strong into December.

Review: 'Out Of The Furnace' Is Well Acted But A Familiar Story (Video)

12/4/2013 8:33am EST
'Out Of The Furnace
Some films grab you from the first scene. 'Out of the Furnace', directed by Scott Cooper, is one of those films. Not wanting to spoil it for you, let's just say it involves Woody Harrelson, his girlfriend, a drive in movie and a hot dog.  

Woody plays Harlan DeGroat, a crazy redneck, living in the backwoods of Pennsylvania. Besides having an off the chart violent temper, DeGroat is the leader of a gang of thugs, whose collective I.Q points hardly equals 50. But he's not the main focus of the film, even though he does play a very significant part in the events that transpire.
