Christian Bale’s ‘Vice’ transformation
Bale, Adams try to keep their own politics out of ‘Vice’
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Complete list of winners at the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, presented Sunday in Beverly Hills, California, by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association:
Drama: "Bohemian Rhapsody"
Actress, Drama: Glenn Close, "The Wife"
Actor, Drama: Rami Malek, "Bohemian Rhapsody"
Comedy or Musical: "Green Book"
Actor, Comedy or Musical: Christian Bale, "Vice"
Actress, Comedy or Musical: Olivia Colman, "The Favourite"
A different Nicole Kidman stares out at us under the harsh Los Angeles sun of the neo-noir "Destroyer."
The actress who famously donned a prosthetic nose for "The Hours" has here gone to greater and grittier lengths of transformation. Her eyes are sunken. Her skin is hardened. Her stare is provocatively hollow. She looks dead inside — nearly so on the outside, too.
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Christian Bale had a choice to make. He'd been hemming and hawing about Adam McKay's very unconventional proposition that he play Dick Cheney in a biopic about the former vice president of the United States, and his deadline to decide was coming up.
Christian Bale’s ready to fail big
Blow your nose, and you'll miss the split-second shot of a younger Donald Trump in "Vice," Adam McKay's exhaustingly entertaining (and entertainingly exhausting) Dick Cheney movie.
Christian Bale’s spirit animal is a sloth
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — A list of the nominees for the 25th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, announced Wednesday in West Hollywood, California:
Actor: Christian Bale, "Vice"; Bradley Cooper, "A Star Is Born"; Rami Malek, "Bohemian Rhapsody"; Viggo Mortensen, "Green Book"; John David Washington, "BlacKkKlansman."
Christian Bale: Dick Cheney is ‘a big boy’
LOS ANGELES (AP) — To say Andy Serkis has been through the wringer with his adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book" is a bit of an understatement. It was always going to be an ambitious project for a first time director — dark, intense and more in the spirit of Kipling's stories, with a big studio (Warner Bros.) behind it, a blockbuster budget, A-list talent to match, from Christian Bale to Cate Blanchett, and all the high-pressure stakes that go along with that.
NEW YORK (AP) — Adam McKay's Dick Cheney biopic "Vice" staged an awards-season coup Thursday, landing a leading six nominations from the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards to narrowly edge more expected favorites like Bradley Cooper's tear-jerking revival "A Star Is Born," the interracial road-trip drama "Green Book" and the period romp "The Favourite."
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on the announcement of nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California (all times local):
"Vice" director Adam McKay says he's only competitive with one movie in the best comedy or musical film category: "Mary Poppins Returns."
Speaking from London about his film's leading six Golden Globe nominations Thursday, McKay deadpanned that "we will take 'Mary Poppins' out." He added: "Dick Cheney is going for her."

Hollywood meets Bollywood at ‘Mowgli’ premiere
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Maze Runner: The Death Cure," the third installment in the young adult dystopian series, raced to the top of the box office in its opening weekend in theaters with $24.2 million 20th Century Fox said Monday.
It bumped "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" into second place after its $16.1 million weekend. The Dwayne Johnson pic had been resting easy at No. 1 for three straight weeks and has earned $337.8 million to date.
NEW YORK (AP) — Clearly not every actor suffered through lean times on their way up, but origin stories are full of tight-money moments nevertheless.
Patrick Wilson said recently on the red carpet that he once scraped for change at the Lincoln Tunnel. Greta Gerwig said her bank account was nearly drained when she drove past a Los Angeles movie theater with her face on the marquee.
Enemies are thrown together for a perilous journey in "Hostiles ," an unforgivingly violent and sparse revisionist Western set in 1892 that explores the traumas of American westward expansion.
Bale on ‘different’ Western ‘Hostiles’: ‘As dark as you can get’
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Christian Bale won what embattled Kevin Spacey lost: the privilege of being name-checked on "This Is Us."
Tuesday's episode of the NBC drama included a 2008 flashback scene in which a struggling actor learns his roommate has gotten a role in a major movie.
In the scene filmed before Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct, the thrilled roommate refers to a Kevin Spacey film.
TORONTO (AP) — The kind of breakthrough performance where it's immediately apparent that an actor is going to be a star for years to come is a rarity in movies. Think of Emma Stone in "Easy A" or Jessica Chastain in "The Tree of Life."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Before Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale and Ben Affleck donned Batman's cape in a stream of Hollywood blockbusters, there was Adam West.
West's deadpan portrayal of the comic hero in a campy 1960's TV series brought the Caped Crusader into the national consciousness with a "bang!" The Dark Knight had been a brooding presence on the pages of comic books since 1939 and on the big screen in 1940s-era movie serials.
