Emma Thompson Says Donald Trump Asked Her Out Once: 'I Didn't Know What to Do With Myself'

4 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Emma Thompson could have been the first lady... or Donald Trump could have never been president.

During a recent appearance on a Swedish television show, the 57-year-old actress revealed that she was asked out by the media mogul-turned-president in 1997, just after her divorce from Kenneth Branagh, and before he met his current wife, Melania.

"I'll tell you the story. It's very funny," Thompson shared. "I was doing a film called Primary Colors with John Travolta in Hollywood and I was in my trailer, and it was on the Universal lot and I had just been divorced and my decree absolute had just come through, like, the day before, which was no big deal."

"So the phone rings in my trailer, which it has never done before. I look at it and it's, like, weird. It's like a moose has just entered my trailer »

Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk' given PG-13 rating in Us

16 March 2017 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Tom Hardy Second World War drama won’t have an R-rating in America.

Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Second World War film Dunkirk has been awarded a PG-13 rating in the Us by the MPAA for “intense war experience and some language”.

The rating means ‘some material may be inappropriate for children under 13’, though children of any age can enter with permissions from parents.

This could translate into the 12A rating into the UK, although that is not confirmed.

Dunkirk’s Us rating implies that the film will feature less bloody violence than other notable Second World War films such as Hacksaw Ridge, Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line, which were all rated R in the Us.

The R certificate requires anyone under the age of 17 to be accompanied by an adult.

Dunkirk stars Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Harry Styles and tells the story of the famous Dunkirk operation, when more than »

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk receives PG-13 rating for “intense war experience”

15 March 2017 1:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Christopher Nolan’s upcoming WWII drama Dunkirk has received a PG-13 rating in the Us.

Every new Christopher Nolan film is an event; the critically praised English director with a loyal fan base has been bringing his unique brand of ambitious blockbusters to cinemas for quite some time now.

With 2014’s Interstellar wowing many and baffling plenty more, fans are eager to see how he handles the more grounded affair of a World War II drama.

Dunkirk tells the story of the Dunkirk evacuation where allied soldiers were trapped on a beach, surrounded by Nazi soldiers.

The stakes are certainly there for Nolan to work his magic, and along with an all star cast that includes Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh, and Mark Rylance, Dunkirk has seemingly all the ingredients to be another hit for the director.

And now we know the age rating for the epic war thriller, »

Beauty and the Beast Review: A Lavish Yet Unsurprising Spectacle

3 March 2017 9:53 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney's Beauty and the Beast is a lavish spectacle. Fans of the classic cartoon will be very happy with this live-action update. It's pretty much an exact retelling with a slightly deeper dig at a backstory. The film is a wall to wall musical. Characters break into song accompanied by intricate choreography and first rate visual effects. There is a twenty-first century update with a racially mixed cast and sly inferences to homosexuality. The major drawback is the total lack of surprise. Beauty and the Beast is well made, but plays out exactly as expected.

In medieval France, a selfish and vain Prince (Dan Stevens) is cursed by an enchantress. He is turned into a hideous Beast. His servants transformed into objects. All memory of his castle and kingdom are erased. Only true love can break the spell; the falling petals of a magical rose dictating the timetable to an irreversible fate. »

Beauty And The Beast Review

3 March 2017 8:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As Disney continues to humanize its cartoon vault, lucky filmmakers put their own spins on timeless classics. Kenneth Branagh made a rather wonderful dance out of Cinderella, Jon Favreau knocked The Jungle Book out of the park, and now we have Bill Condon’s Beauty And The Beast – arguably one of Disney’s most famous titles. A story of damning sorcery, furry princes and how true love can save an empire. Dashing fairy tale material, propelled by animation to recreate personified objects and one reclusive Beast. No sweat after The Jungle Book, right? Well, let’s just say you’d be surprised. No doubt entertained, but surprised nonetheless.

I’m assuming you all know the plot, correct? Emma Watson stars as Belle, the small-village girl who finds herself imprisoned by a wretched creature, “The Beast” (Dan Stevens). Er, maybe “imprisoned” isn’t the right descriptor? Ok, she’s imprisoned *at »

Beauty And The Beast (2017) review

1 March 2017 10:23 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Disney's new take on Beauty And The Beast, starring Emma Watson, sets itself a tough task. Here's our review...

Director Bill Condon called the original Disney take on Beauty And The Beast a “perfect” film, in an interview with this very site back in 2015. It damn near is for my money too, and the economy, the storytelling and the richness it packs into less than an hour and a half is spectacular.

Condon’s live action take on the story, firmly using the animated classic as its basis and heart, runs to 129 minutes (including credits), and therein lie its inevitable problems. That a story that had been worked and trimmed and cut to just the right length is now a third longer again. The grumbles that follow are a consequence of that decision.

However – and I say this as someone who nerdily adores the 1991 movie – Condon’s film is very good. »

Christopher Nolan discusses Dunkirk’s narrative structure and the significance of the battle

1 March 2017 4:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Christopher Nolan is pretty much the reigning modern-day king regarding captivating yet highly complex storytelling, a trademark that is returning for this summer’s hotly anticipated World War II epic Dunkirk. Despite looking relatively straightforward in its first trailer [watch it here], we should have known the director would have some tricks up his sleeve.

Speaking about the narrative structure to Première, Nolan stated: “The film is told from three points of view. The air (planes), the land (on the beach) and the sea (the evacuation by the navy). For the soldiers who embarked in the conflict, the events took place on different temporalities. On land, some stayed one week stuck on the beach. On the water, the events lasted a maximum day; and if you were flying to Dunkirk, the British spitfires would carry an hour of fuel. To mingle these different versions of history, one had to mix the temporal strata. »

Christopher Nolan Inspired by Robert Bresson and Silent Films for ‘Dunkirk,’ Which Has “Little Dialogue”

28 February 2017 9:55 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We’re less than half-a-year away from Christopher Nolan‘s Dunkirk, one of our most-anticipated summer studio films (alongside Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, of course), and one of our biggest questions is how (or if) his approach to a period epic will feel different than his recent features. Inspired by Operation Dynamo, a miracle of a mission in 1940 where nearly 340,000 Allied troops were rescued after being trapped by the Nazis in this northern area of France, more details have now arrived.

“I spent a lot of time reviewing the silent films for crowd scenes –the way extras move, evolve, how the space is staged and how the cameras capture it, the views used,” Nolan tells Premiere Magazine. The director revealed that he brushed up on silent films such as Intolerance, Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, and Greed, as well as the films of Robert Bresson (notably Pickpocket and A Man Escaped, »

13 films that could be in the running for an Oscar in 2018

28 February 2017 12:07 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Like it or not, the awards race 2018 is already underway.

Painful as it may sound, the awards marathon is at least a 12-month proposition these days. With Sundance in the rear-view mirror, the talk of potential 2018 Oscar candidates is already underway in industry circles.

Below, Screen runs through 13 films that could be heading to the dance this time next year (the Oscars will be held one week later in 2018, on March 4).

Downsizing

Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig and Christoph Waltz (all previously nominated) star in awards perennial Alexander Payne’s social satire in which a man realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself. Currently in post-production, the film is slated for a December 22 release through Paramount, which is financing. Payne’s last six films have been Oscar-nominated.

Simon Kinberg Says Reports Of Him Directing X-Men: Supernova Were “Premature”

26 February 2017 1:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the last full-fledged team-up entry in the franchise already almost a year behind us now, fans and filmmakers alike have had X-Men: Supernova – the supposed title of the series’ next outing – on their minds. And although not many concrete details have surfaced as of yet, all signs point towards it adapting The Dark Phoenix Saga.

Knowing that Bryan Singer probably won’t return anytime soon, the question has remained as to who’ll direct the next major installment. One obvious choice that recent reports seemed to solidify was that of Simon Kinberg, who’s already penned several screenplays in the franchise and runs all things X-Men over at Fox.

Well, it seems that somewhere along the way, somebody jumped the gun, as Kinberg himself clarified things in a recent interview with ComingSoon.net:

“They didn’t announce it, somebody broke a story about it that’s premature, but we »

Simon Kinberg on possibly directing X-Men: Supernova, Nicholas Hoult thinks he’ll return as Beast

24 February 2017 5:03 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago it was reported that Simon Kinberg is being lined up to make his directorial debut on the next instalment in the main franchise, X-Men: Supernova. Coming Soon caught up with Kinberg this week and asked him about the report, but the writer and producer was keeping his cards very close to his chest and giving very little away.

“They didn’t announce it, somebody broke a story about it that’s premature, but we have been talking about what the next X-Men movie would be since post-production on the last X-Men movie. We are prepping the film, can’t say much more than that, but we’re excited to get back into telling the story of the mainland X-Men.”

Asked hypothetically what he feels his directing style would be, Kinberg responded: “I’ve had the good fortune of working with a lot of good directors, from »

Josh Gad Has Enlisted a Star-Studded Group of Sleuths to Get Star Wars Spoilers Out of Daisy Ridley

20 February 2017 11:44 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

There’s just under 300 days until The Last Jedi hits theaters – plenty of time for actor Josh Gad to crack its star Daisy Ridley.

Gad – who is currently filming the Murder on the Orient Express remake with Ridley – has been peppering the British actress with questions about Star Wars: Episode VIII, even enlisting some other famous faces to help out.

In his first attempt – recorded and released on social media – Ridley came by Gad’s trailer clad in her robe.

'Star Wars': Daisy Ridley Hounded for 'Last Jedi' Spoilers in Star-Studded Video

20 February 2017 10:01 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

If this doesn't work, nothing will.

Josh Gad has been trying for weeks to get Daisy Ridley, his co-star on Kenneth Branagh's remake of Murder on the Orient Express, to spill a few spoilers about her upcoming turn as Rey in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it's all failed. He even enlisted Dame Judi Dench earlier this month, but Ridley revealed nothing.

For one final try, Gad has pulled out all the stops, inviting a star-studded group to badger Ridley for spoilers, with Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Leslie Odom Jr. and Penelope Cruz among those waiting »

Great Job, Internet!: Now Dame Judi Dench is trying to pry Last Jedi info from Daisy Ridley

9 February 2017 12:26 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Look, Josh Gad is fucking trying. The latest in his ongoing series of duplicitous attempts to get Daisy Ridley to reveal Last Jedi plot details has come out, and he has called in no higher authority than Dame Judi Dench for help. The three all have supporting roles in Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming adaptation of Murder On The Orient Express, but Gad does not give a shit about that movie. Dench appears in the video suddenly, with the hushed, omniscient presence of a Bene Gesserit witch, but uses her powers here for good, asking Ridley, point blank, if she is the titular last Jedi, if Snoke is Palpatine, and more.

In a twist ending, Ridley cannot say no to Dame Judi Dench; it is unclear if anyone could deny the Dame. She gets what she wants, and in this case, it is plot details about The Last Jedi. Perhaps in »

Now Dame Judi Dench Is Interrogating Daisy Ridley About Star Wars: The Last Jedi

8 February 2017 5:38 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Unlike Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi hasn't suffered from any major plot or concept art leaks, and while we've seen a handful of set photos, they shed no light whatsoever about what we should expect. It's understandable then that Josh Gad is trying to uncover some answers as he shoots the Kenneth Branagh helmed Murder on the Orient Express alongside actress Daisy Ridley.  Well, after trying and failing twice to learn more about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the actor has now enlisted Dame Judi Dench to quiz the young actress on what exactly is going on with the movie. Seeing the iconic Brit push Ridley for answers on who the Last Jedi is and whether Emperor Palpatine is downright hilarious (and bizarre), and by the time all is said and done, it looks like she succeeds! Unfortunately, it's then that the video cuts off, »
