Catch up with the last seven days in the world of filmThe big storyUS opponents of gun control have a new whipping boy in the shape of Jim Carrey. The star found himself in the pro-gun lobby's sights this week after the release of a sketch on comedy website Funny or Die, in which he appeared as Charlton Heston and riffed on the former NRA chief's famous "cold dead hands" speech.Ebay got caught up in the ensuing row after it removed (and later reinstated) a listing for an autographed photo of Carrey, which seller "astrobuzz" said he was auctioning to raise money for a gun.The right wing media has also been taking pot shots at the actor in response to the Heston sketch, with Fox News host Greg Gutfeld calling him "the most pathetic tool on the face of the earth."Carrey responded with a statement last Friday, which indicated he wasn't likely to apologise for the sketch any time soon : "I'll just say this: in my opinion Fux News is a last resort for kinda-sorta-almost-journalists whose options have been severely limited by their extreme and intolerant views; a media colostomy bag that has begun to burst at the seams and should be emptied before it becomes a public health issue."In the newsRoger Ebert takes 'leave of presence' to deal with recurrence of cancerMatthew McConaughey to star in Christopher Nolan's InterstellarJack Reacher film gives New Zealand viewer too little bang for his buckNew Zealand points to its diplomat's diary as proof that Argo got it wrongA-list audition tapes blocked from auction by SAG-AFTRABrad Pitt zombie movie re-edited for Chinese marketOn the blogHollywood's hold over global box office – 63% and fallingWho are your favourite film critics?Jurassic Park 3D: revisiting the film that put machismo on the extinction listZac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens: who is now more sleazy?Clip joint: maids and servantsCine-files: The Phoenix, FalmouthWatch and listenThis Is the End: watch the red band trailer – videoOnly God Forgives trailer: Ryan Gosling drives excitement for CannesKarl Hyde's The Outer Edges: watch the world exclusive trailer2 Guns trailer: wait for the money shotVideo on demandThe HuntThomas Vinterberg's brilliant Danish drama about a teacher wrongly accused of child abuse won the best actor award at Cannes for its star Mads Mikkelsen – you can watch the film on demand here.For EllenPaul Dano stars in this brilliantly observed story about a musician who tries to connect with his small daughter during a custody battle.
