“Deep Vote” On “The Ghost Writer,” “The King’S Speech,” And “The Town”

29 December 2010 11:43 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

“Deep Vote,” an Oscar winning screenwriter and a member of the Academy, will write this column — exclusively for ScottFeinberg.com — every week until the Academy Awards. He will help to peel back the curtain on the Oscar voting process by sharing his thoughts about the films he sees and, ultimately, his nomination and final ballots, as well. His identity must be protected in order to spare him from repercussions for disclosing the aforementioned information.

Thus far, he has shared his thoughts in column one about his general preferences; column two about “Winter’s Bone” (Roadside Attractions, 6/11, R, trailer) and “Solitary Man” (Anchor Bay Films, 5/21, R, trailer); column three about “Alice in Wonderland” (Disney, 3/5, PG, trailer), “Toy Story 3” (Disney, 6/18, G, trailer), and “Mother and Child” (Sony Pictures Classics, 5/7, R, trailer); column four about “Get Low” (Sony Pictures Classics, 7/30, PG-13, trailer), “The Kids Are All Right” (Focus Features, 7/9, R, trailer), and “The Social Network” (Columbia, »

Pierce Brosnan to team up with Sarah Jessica Parker (IrishCentral)

24 December 2010 12:53 PM, PST | IrishCentral | See recent IrishCentral news »

Pierce Brosnan has a high-profile project to look forward to in the New Year – he’ll co-star alongside a galaxy of stars, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Christina Hendricks and Kelsey Grammer, in the comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It. The film will be based on the 2002 best-selling novel of the same name by British writer Allison Pearson.  Parker, shifting into post-Sex and the City mode, will play the lead character, a harried successful businesswoman and mother of two who’s navigating the competing aspects of her life. Brosnan is reportedly down to play one of Parker’s love interests, though the Kate Reddy character is married in the book.  Filming starts next month, and as the book is based in New York, it’s a good bet that at least some of the shooting will take place in and around city streets.  The film is being released by the Weinstein Company. »

2010 Look Back at the Year in Film

24 December 2010 9:10 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Scott Mendelson

hollywoodnews.com: Let us begin our look back at the year in film with a token acknowledgement of ten films whose reputations did not proceed them. For the record, not all of the films below are bad pictures. But they all generated critical and/or audience esteem that they perhaps did not entirely earn. There is nothing wrong with overpraising a good film. It often emanates from a hunger for quality that often causes we the critics to look at a merely solid and/or competent piece of cinema and hail it as a groundbreaking work of art. The following are in alphabetical order.

The Ghost Writer

The release of this film timed so conveniently with the arrest of director Roman Polanski that the reception of this film seemed to fall into two categories: ‘a triumphant thriller from a master artist’ and/or ‘the new movie by that kiddie-rapist’. Truth be told, »

New this Week: ‘True Grit,’ ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ and ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (DVD)’

22 December 2010 7:00 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Hitting movie theaters this weekend:

Gulliver’s Travels – Jack Black, Emily Blunt, Jason Segel

Little FockersBen Stiller, Teri Polo, Robert De Niro

True GritJeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Hailee Steinfeld

Movie of the Week

True Grit

The Stars: Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Hailee Steinfeld

The Plot: A tough U.S. Marshal helps a stubborn young woman track down her father’s murderer.

The Buzz: This one’s an easy pick for “Movie of the Week,” as for me, Jack Black has worn out his welcome, and any film I’ve ever seen with the word “Focker” in the title was absolutely horrid. Though the Coen Brothers have been hit-and-miss in the last decade, with amazing highs (No Country For Old Men, O Brother, Where Art Thou?) and abysmal lows (Burn After Reading, Intolerable Cruelty), this film, a modern day rehash of the old John Wayne vehicle, looks quite good. »

For Your Eyebrows Only: the 007 regulars

21 December 2010 9:22 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Despite Daniel Craig successfully taking over the role of James Bond in Casino Royale (2006), Eon Productions has now put the immortal series on a backburner because of a potential take-over of MGM. Whether another Bond film will be produced under the partnership remains to be seen, and even if the series kick-starts once more, there’s no guarantee that Craig will return as the world’s most famous secret agent.

The past 40 years has seen a number of actors who have contributed to more than one film. So with this imposed hiatus, it's worth taking a look at those performers who have been in the most 007 movies.

Making her debut in the first 007 outing Dr No (1962), the durable Canadian actress Lois Maxwell made 14 appearances as Secretary Jane Moneypenny, forever flirting with 007 when he returns home from another world-saving assignment. Ian Fleming always regarded Maxwell, who died in 2007, as the perfect Moneypenny because, »

“The King’s Speech” Leads Nominations for the London’s Critics’ Circle Awards

21 December 2010 8:18 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

More awards news now, and it comes from the London’s Critics’ Circle who announced the nominations for their 31st Film Awards, which will be held on February the 10th.

The King’S Speech won out over The Social Network this time around, garnering 8 nominations, including two for Colin Firth and his portrayal of King George VI, one in Actor of the Year and British Actor of the Year. True Grit was also given some well-deserved kudos, getting nominations for actor Jeff Bridges, newcomer Hailee Steinfield, and directors Joel and Ethan Cohen. Toy Story 3 also managed to grab a spot in the Sky 3D Award: Film of the Year line up, and indie movie The Arbor secured a coveted spot on The Attenborough Award: British Film of the Year list too. But where is Biutiful and Javier Bardem‘s nomination, strange that it seems to be getting left off many awards lists… »

London Critics Embrace Monarchy With ‘King’s Speech’

21 December 2010 7:31 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Britain: it’s a lot like America, only in Europe. Everything we have over here — sandwiches, The Beatles, federally mandated health care — they have over there too, except it’s a British version.

And that includes movie critics — critics who, like their American counterparts, have just announced that “The King’s Speech” and “The Social Network” lead their award nominations.

Yes, the list of nominees for the 31st annual London Critics’ Circle awards is topped by “The King’s Speech,” while “The Social Network” landed five and the British drama “Another Year” grabbed six.

“Another Year,” which stars Jim Broadbent and Lesley Manville as an couple in denial about the aging process, was one of several films which got a boost from the fact that the London Critics’ Circle has double nominations for each major category, one for films in general and one specifically for British films. Thus “The King’s Speech, »

Christina Hendricks and Olivia Munn Join Sarah Jessica Parker Comedy

21 December 2010 5:27 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Sarah Jessica Parker’s latest rom-com, I Don’t Know How She Does It, based on the popular Allison Pearson book, will have the stylish actress playing a Wall Street financial type, who has to juggle work, raising her kids, and–one assumes—finding true love. So, this flick will not likely be something men line up for.

But hey, men! Don’t be put off by the lame plot, the fact that Sjp tends to make truly terrible movies, or that this will feature a bunch of characters painfully unaware of financial troubles. (Recession? What recession? That’s Sarah’s motto!) Because the La Times reports, that the producers have added some incentive just for you!

Christina Hendricks (the gorgeous Joan from Mad Men) and “Twitter sensation” Olivia Munn (whose addition to The Daily Show sparked a wild—but thankfully brief—backlash from some female viewers) have joined the cast, »

Hendricks, Meyers And Munn Just 'Don't Know How She Does It'

20 December 2010 1:11 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If you thought Sarah Jessica Parker wasn't going to be doing much for awhile after the release of "Sex and the City 2," then you're wrong. She's bringing the novel "I Don't Know How She Does It" to the big screen with a couple of intriguing casting additions. Christina Hendricks, Olivia Munn and Seth Meyers are all making their way onto the cast that's clearly headlined by Parker.The happy quartet will be joining Kelsey Grammer and Pierce Brosnan in what appears to be one of the more interesting group of actors under one film that's been reported in awhile. She'll be playing a high-powered finance type who's also the mother of two young children and trying to balance the many competing elements in her life. You can clearly guess that this project is some sort of romantic comedy, which means that Parker's "Sex and the City" fan base will »

Christina Hendricks, Seth Meyers, Olivia Munn Join Sarah Jessica Parker's 'I Don't Know How She Does It'

20 December 2010 11:45 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

There are few men I know out there who can honestly say that they get excited for a Sarah Jessica Parker movie, but with the recent casting announcements for her upcoming flick "I Don't Know How She Does It," it seems like this film might be the first.

The Los Angeles Times' 24 Frames blog reports that "Mad Men" starlet Christina Hendricks, G4's Olivia Munn and "Saturday Night Live" staple Seth Meyers have all come on board for the flick.

The film would follow Parker as a hedge-fund manager and married mother of two who has to balance her working life with taking care of her children. Hendricks will play Parker's friend, while Munn will be Parker's work colleague. Meyers' role has not been revealed. The three actors join the previously cast Pierce Brosnan and Kelsey Grammer. It's a kind of funny coincidence that all of these actors got their start on the small screen. »

Christina Hendricks And Olivia Munn Join I Don't Know How She Does It

20 December 2010 9:07 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Though she's still incredibly famous thanks to the lingering popularity of Sex and the City, Sarah Jessica Parker's movie career has been particularly brutal, between the frankly terrible two Sex and the City movies and uninspired rom-coms like Did You Hear About The Morgans? and Failure to Launch. With her time as Carrie Bradshaw probably over for good, though, Parker's got to keep working somehow, so she's giving the romantic comedy another shot with I Don't Know How She Does It, an adaptation of Allison Pearson's comic novel. Parker is set to star as the main character, a businesswoman also raising two children, and now The La Times reports that a whole raft of famous names have joined as well. Christina Hendricks, Olivia Munn, Seth Meyers, Pierce Brosnan and Kelsey Grammar have all signed on for roles in the Weinstein Company film, which starts under director Doug McGrath »
