Clint Eastwood's Invictus may appeal to some as a historical story about Nelson Mandela; others will see it as another sports movie about a rugby team. Whatever the reason for heading to the theater, the film has the unique ability to take the audience on a journey that will leave you cheering when it's all over — even if the story seems familiar.
Invictus takes us to South Africa in 1994, the year that Nelson Mandela took the presidency after spending 27 years in prison. Faced with the mountainous task of uniting a nation post-apartheid, Mandela turns to rugby captain Francois Pinnear (Matt Damon) to give the divided masses a cause they can all rally behind.
That's just the tip of the iceberg though, so read more
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie weren't the only special guests at last night's Invictus premiere in LA — they brought their oldest son Maddox to pose and mingle on the red carpet. The eight-year-old was decked out in a fedora just like his dad often wears, though lately Brad's all about the beanie which he wore for date night with Angelina earlier in the week.
The movie's stars Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman, as well as director Clint Eastwood, were all fresh off Wednesday night's NYC screening. Between publicity stops with Luciana on his arm always, Matt's still busy filming The Adjustment Bureau in NYC. Invictus is getting Oscar buzz already which hopefully means a lot more of these handsome faces during award season.

The final month of the year is a big one for the entertainment world; as one TV show returns, another is sadly heading for a hiatus. Meanwhile, we'll get to check out another batch of movies with Oscar written all over them plus fatten up that DVD collection with movies to make you laugh and cry during the cold months ahead.
December is always a very big month for movies; with just a few weeks left until awards season starts up, this time is seen as the last chance for filmmakers to show off their biggest works of the year. In the coming weeks there will be no shortage of highly anticipated films and top-notch performances. Let's take a look at my top 12 picks.
Hope you haven't OD'd on Matt Damon yet! Just yesterday I showed you a preview of his upcoming Jason Bourne-esque action flick, Green Zone and today we get a peek at Invictus. In the upcoming film from Clint Eastwood, Damon stars as a Francois Pienaar, real-life member of South Africa's rugby team who's summoned by Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) to rally support in the country and unite the racial divide.
I love Matt Damon, but I'm actually more interested in Freeman's performance in Invictus. It looks like one well-done biopic, and it's obviously Freeman's Oscar film — although I'm sure Damon doing an accent could translate into a nomination for him around awards time, too. (Not to mention that many things Eastwood touches turn to Oscar nods).
Warning: If cheering crowd scenes and African singing often play with your emotions, you may get goose bumps while watching this preview. Check it out, and tell me what you think when you read more
Crazy interesting news:
Morgan Freeman will portray former South African President Nelson Mandela in The Human Factor, a drama based on an upcoming book titled The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Changed the World.
According to the article...
"Pic is set after the fall of apartheid, when South Africa was host to the 1995 Rugby World Cup. Mandela was in his first term as South African president, and he used the event as a way to end decades of mistrust and hatred between whites and blacks."
Morgan Freeman is amazing:
Apparently, Freeman has traveled to South Africa to discuss the project with Mandela. "'I have known Nelson Mandela personally for quite some time, and am continually in awe of his enormous presence in the world,' Freeman said. 'The opportunity to portray him in this film is a great honor.'"
