Roles Where Actors Lost Weight

  • Cinelinx
New Year’s resolutions are a time to work towards a transformation of your body and/or your life. To honor these goals, this month we’re going to look at transformative roles in film. This week we look at some prominent examples of actors losing weight for roles.

It’s one thing to mentally prepare to play a character in a movie or a play. It’s another thing to physically transform yourself in order to better identify with the role. Some transformations are only skin deep; extensive makeup or prosthetics may be sufficient to pull of the necessary look. Other transformations are more involved; many actors may take part in weeks, if not months, of preparations for a role. This can include intense training, specialized diets, and exhaustive exercise routines. The end result of an actor going through such a transformation is not only a more accurate visual resemblance,

Ice Cream Truck Trailer Will Give You the Chills

Ice Cream Truck Trailer Will Give You the Chills
Uncork'd Entertainment has released the new trailer and poster for The Ice Cream Truck, the studio's upcoming horror-thriller that will arrive in select theaters and on VOD formats August 18. This haunting trailer shows that the ice cream man, bringer of joy for kids and adults alike in the summertime months, may also have a sinister agenda aside from handing out soft-serve treats. In this neighborhood, the ice cream man is the most dangerous man in town.

The story centers on Mary (Deanna Russo), whose husband gets relocated for work which allows her to move back to her suburban hometown. As her family ties up loose ends back home, Mary moves into their new house all alone and waits. Although her familiar suburb is a constant reminder of her youth, something seems strange. A local Ice Cream Man (Emil Johnsen) with a love of nostalgia starts to kill some of her neighbors.

‘Awards Chatter’ Podcast — Vince Vaughn (‘Hacksaw Ridge’)

By: Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

“I think what happened to me after The Break-Up was I was kind of more ‘booking jobs’ and not working from that same catalyst of, ‘I really believe in this and we all want to make the same movie,'” acknowledges the actor Vince Vaughn as we sit down at the London West Hollywood hotel to discuss his career on The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. Following a remarkable run of hit comedies in the early 2000s — among them, 2003’s Old School, 2004’s Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Starsky & Hutch and 2005’s Wedding Crashers — Vaughn had deliberately pivoted towards drama with the 2006 dramedy.

“But I didn’t follow through on it,” the 46-year-old says with unmistakable regret. Instead, he lost his way for a decade, during which he was humbled by critical and commercial disappointments — see Fred Claus

Every girl deserves a “girls night out” – even the future Queen of England.

A Royal Night Out is a charming, Cinderella in reverse type film that follows one evening in the lives of princesses Elizabeth and Margaret Windsor on V-e Night, May 8th, 1945, respectively played by Sarah Gadon (Maps to the Stars, Dracula Untold, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Bel Powley (Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch 2015, The Diary of a Teenage Girl).

Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks to split from Disney next year

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that DreamWorks’s distribution deal with The Walt Disney Company is set to expire after the release of Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg in July 2016, with Disney opting against a renewal.

At this point, it’s unclear which studio DreamWorks will partner up with for future releases, although THR is reporting that the likely home will be Universal given its close ties with Spielberg, who most recently executive produced Universal’s monster hit Jurassic World.

DreamWorks – which was founded in 1994 by Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen – has struggled somewhat as of late to secure financing for its projects, while recent releases such as Need for Speed, The Fifth Estate and Delivery Man have failed to set the box office alight.

Spielberg's DreamWorks May Split from Disney and Go to Universal
Ever since 2009, when Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks parted ways with Paramount, Disney has distributed the studio's films, but that may all come to an end when their deal expires next year. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the director's upcoming adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Bfg, which hits theaters July 1, 2016, will be the last film Disney releases through its contract with DreamWorks, which expires in August 2016. The report reveals that Steven Spielberg may bring DreamWorks over to Universal Pictures, after the Disney pact runs out.

Steven Spielberg has always had his offices on the Universal Pictures lot, even while his DreamWorks company had distribution deals with Paramount and Disney. The report also claims that Steven Spielberg was a "hands-on" executive producer on the studio's massive box office hit Jurassic World, and he is also a vital part of the studio's plans for the sequel, Jurassic World 2, and their future theme park plans for the franchise.

Will 'True Detective' Revive Vince Vaughn? Actor Joins Mel Gibson Drama

Will 'True Detective' Revive Vince Vaughn? Actor Joins Mel Gibson Drama
If you're watching "True Detective," it's hard to buy that Vince Vaughn's performance as crooked Vinci ringleader Frank Semyon could put the defibrillators on his career. The actor, long known for his goofy comic turns, postures a faux-seriousness that whiffs of Matthew McConaughey's brooding season one turn, and a face that says, "I'm thinking about Emmys." (When "Delivery Man" opened in 2013, we called him a "toxic comedian" who "has burned many smart moviegoers over the years.") But Vaughn clearly wants to buff his dramatic chops. After "True Detective," he will usher into Mel Gibson's World War II drama "Hacksaw Ridge," Deadline reports. He's set to star opposite Andrew Garfield and Sam Worthington in Gibson's first film since 2006's "Apocalypto." Distributed by Lionsgate, "Hacksaw" will shoot in Australia.

The Longest Ride movie review: romantic bargaining

For once, a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks book appears to be populated by relatively realistic approximations of human beings dealing with relationship conflict in realistic ways. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of Nicholas Sparks

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I think this might be the first movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel that I haven’t hated. Oh, sure, it’s set in an American South — specifically, North Carolina — where there are, impossibly, no black people (see also: Safe Haven), and where it only ever rains as an expression of manly sadness that cannot be articulated in any other way. It uses a motif similar to The Notebook’s, in which romantic handwritten documents of a relationship — in this case, love letters — allow for flashbacks to the 1940s,

‘Unfinished Business’ VOD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, Dave Franco, Sienna Miller, June Diane Raphael, Britton Sear, Ella Anderson, Nick Frost, James Marsden | Written by Steve Conrad | Directed by Ken Scott

Daniel Trunkman (Vaughn), a hard-working but disillusioned salesman, decides to set up on his own and take on the big man – or more specifically his cut-throat former boss Chuck (Miller). Accompanied by two unlikely associates; Timothy McWinters (Wilkinson) and Mike Pancake (Franco), he travels to Europe to close the most important deal of his life. But what begins as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every imaginable – and unimaginable – way, including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit.

Ken Scott, director of Starbuck and its Us remake Delivery Man, seems to have cornered the market in broad comedies with emotional heart. Delivery Man could have been just another gross out comedy about

Results – The Review

For the last half a century or so, Americans have been on a seemingly never-ending quest for physical perfection. This has manifested itself in the proliferation of cosmetic surgeons, health food stores, diet books and programs, and the wide spread, often popping up overnight, health clubs (Aka spa, the gym, the fitness center, etc…). So, naturally these places would become a movie location, in comedies (in the 63′ classic original The Nutty Professor, Jerry Lewis causes havoc at a “Vic Tanny Gym”) to documentaries (the Pumping Iron flicks). Then there’s those hybrid comedy/drama/romances like the John Travolta 1984 vehicle Perfect and the Robert Altman ensemble called, simply, Health. Now, in this new low-budget “indie” flick, three unlikely (and often unloveable) characters come together when one of them heads into a health club (sounds like an old joke set-up, “A guy walks into a spa…”), hoping, needing ,to achieve eventually,
