Kingsman: The Golden Circle Will Be Bigger And Badder Says Star Taron Egerton

21 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Image via 20th Century Fox

Last year, Kingsman: The Secret Service really came out of nowhere. I’d seen trailers for it, and while it looked like it could be fun, it looked more like a cheap Ya adaptation (I hadn't read the comic) than the kickass spy flick we ended up with. Man was I happy to be wrong with this one. What we got instead was perhaps one of the most genuinely fun films of the year. Most importantly, it sold Colin Firth as a complete badass, which I honestly didn’t realize was possible.

Given the great word of mouth of that first film, and the great success that it was at the box office despite its R rating, it was inevitable that a sequel would be in the works. Luckily for us, writer/director Matthew Vaughn was back on board for this sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, »

Andrew Davies: 'I can't control myself'

30 November 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

He may have just turned 80 but he isn’t slowing down. TV’s great adapter comes clean about his best binge-watch, dyeing Colin Firth’s hair – and why his Les Mis will be nothing like the ‘travesty’ of a musical

Arriving to interview Andrew Davies is rather like being in one of his TV dramas: events have reached a cliffhanger and there’s a naked woman on the loose. As he greets me in the hallway of his home, the first thing Davies says is: “There’s water pouring everywhere and Diana is upstairs with nothing on.”

The power shower has become as power crazed as Francis Urquhart, the post-Thatcherite plotter in Davies’s adaptation of House of Cards, the basis for the current Kevin Spacey version. Davies has managed to avoid the spray and so is not wearing a damp shirt – unlike Colin Firth in the best remembered scene »

Love Actually Sucks, Actually, and You All Know It

29 November 2016 9:30 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

"Solid gold sh*t!" - Love Actually describing Love Actually I know many of you are probably seething just reading the headline. But the fact is you're here now. Something deep inside of you knows I'm right. Let's get a few things out of the way: I'm a devout Christmas enthusiast. I openly celebrate the reason for the season, I'm known to sport inappropriate Christmas sweaters (at Disneyland, no less), I start my Christmas music listening extravaganza in late October, and I'm a mulled wine fanatic. You need to know that I do have merriment in my heart; I'm not some Grinch who hates the holiday spirit. Furthermore, I am obsessed with British people and will forever feel inadequate for not having an adorably chic English accent. But Love Actually is a flaming turd among sparkly baubles within the holiday film genre. These yuletide films tend to have a specific formula, »

Exclusive: Amy Adams on Competing Against Herself for an Oscar With 'Arrival' and 'Nocturnal Animals'

22 November 2016 9:55 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If there's any safe bet when it comes to the Oscars, it's betting on Amy Adams. In the past 10 years, she has earned five Academy Awards nominations. Her first was Best Supporting Actress for Junebug in 2006, followed by nominations in the same category for Doubt in 2008, The Fighter in 2010 and The Master in 2012. She secured her first Best Actress nod in 2013 for American Hustle and that streak could continue this year with either Arrival or Nocturnal Animals.

"I'm always grateful if I get to be there," Adams humbly told Et when asked about garnering Oscar buzz for two films in one year. She then added, just as chipperly, "If not, then that's Ok too. I'm happy to support really good films. I'm in the Academy, so I'll be voting for the awesome films and performances I've seen so far."

Tom Ford is drunk on movies. Like the fashion icon he is, the director brings a keen eye for style, texture and design to the images he creates.

A Single Man (2009) was a masterful debut with Colin Firth giving a career-best performance as a gay professor feeling suicidal over the death of his lover. Ford hits it out of the park again in Nocturnal Animals, a stunning film noir that resonates with ghostly, »

‘The Crown’ Review: Netflix Period Drama Came to Reign in Made-To-Order Emmys Contender

4 November 2016 12:38 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

William Shakespeare, in “Henry IV, Part II,” wrote, “Uneasy lies a head that wears the crown.” Oft misquoted as “Heavy is the head that wears the crown” (or a similar variation), a combination of these interpretations should serve to briefly sum up Netflix’s new, weighty period drama, “The Crown.” A heavy, devout evaluation of a woman who ascended to a complex position of power and an office in turmoil after years of controversy, the new drama is dripping with enough import to make viewers overlook an absence of levity and an abundance of familiarity in exchange for such magnificent prestige.

Tracking Elizabeth II throughout her reign, Peter Morgan’s 10-episode first season is a thorough study of how her coronation drastically affected her life, the lives of those close to her and a country she represents. One could say the series is an in-depth look at the personal life »

Afm: German Money Boosts Projects Across Borders

3 November 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Germany has long been the powerhouse driving the economy in Europe, and in recent years its film and TV industries have likewise developed into major players at home and on the international scene.

The country’s sales agents are becoming more involved earlier in the production process due to creators’ financial needs and the agents’ financial connections, says Mariette Rissenbeek, managing director of German Films.

“Projects of well-known independent filmmakers can only be financed by involving international distributors or producers at an early stage,” Rissenbeek says. “German TV series with a high creative level and a high production level also demand international financing in order to be able to get started. Accordingly, German sales agents are more and more involved with this type of pre-sales and co-financing as they are well-connected to the international film and TV industry.”

In the TV arena, she notes, “a number of larger sales companies »
