Kingsley Takes a Villainous Turn in 'Iron Man 3'

ben kingsley iron man 3

LOS ANGELES _ There was a time when being a part of a comic-book based movie was considered little more than a way to earn a paycheck. Not anymore. Ben Kingsley, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh share more in common than just being actors from the United Kingdom. All three have been knighted, either won or been nominated for an Oscar and are part of comic-book movies. Caine was Alfred in the "Batman" movies; Branagh directed "Thor." Sir Ben's venture into the ever-growing genre has him playing The Mandarin in "Iron Man 3." The character first appears in a series of threatening video messages that promise to rain down a terrorist hell o... more

LOS ANGELES - Oscar voters will no longer be required to see certain nominated films in a theater to cast their ballots. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Saturday that members will be mailed DVDs of documentaries, shorts and foreign language nominees - categories that don't typically get lengthy stays on multiplex big screens. President Hawk Koch says the move is an effort to expand member participation by giving voters as many opportunities as possible to see all the nominated films. Prior to the final round of voting, the academy will mail members DVDs of films in Foreign Language Film, Documentary Feature, Do... more

NEW ORLEANS - Grammy-winning singer Usher believes his dancing skills will help him in his upcoming role as Sugar Ray Leonard in "Hands of Stone," a new boxing film about the great brawler Roberto Duran. Usher said he has been preparing to play Leonard - a fighter with fast hands, smooth feet and a wide smile - for more than a year and still needs to lose nearly 25 pounds (11 kilograms) before shooting begins in October. The movie is based on Duran, a world champion in four weight divisions over a career that spanned five decades. Duran, whose nickname was "Hands of Stone," rose from the slums of Panama to defeat an unbeaten Leonard in 1... more

Gordie Howe Movie Focuses on 1st Season With Sons

DETROIT - A fascinating part of Gordie Howe's life has been turned into a TV movie. "Mr. Hockey: The Gordie Howe Story" premieres Saturday night in the U.S. on the Hallmark Channel. The focus of the film is on the World Hockey Association's 1973-74 season, when the then 45-year-old Howe came out of retirement to play for the Houston Aeros with two of his sons, Mark and Marty. Gordie Howe helped Houston win the WHA title and was MVP of the league that later merged with the NHL. "Marty and I had a lot of input with the script," Mark Howe said. "My dad couldn't really help much because he doesn't remember most of that stuff." Howe, who tu... more

LOS ANGELES - Sometimes you just can't wait for Comic-Con - whether you're a fan or a filmmaker. With the summer movie season now beginning in early May ("Iron Man 3" opens Friday), studios are co-opting the July pop-culture convention's model of stoking interest in anticipated films by bringing sneak-peeks of new material directly to super fans, who then, it is hoped, spread their enthusiasm via word-of-mouth and social media. For "Star Trek: Into Darkness," which opens May 17, Paramount shared early photos and videos with Trekkies devoted enough to download an iPhone or Android app. Other aspiring blockbusters, including Disney's "The ... more
