Did You Hear About the Morgans? | Film review

31 December 2009 3:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A decent romcom with Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker. By Peter Bradshaw

I know, I know. Some movies – most movies – get a bigging up before they are released and this one has had an awful littling down. No one has had a civil word to say on the subject of Did You Hear About the Morgans? The word of mouth, in this case, appears to begin with S. I spoke to some people who had seen this romcom, before settling down to watch it myself, and they had the shocked, glassy-eyed expression of people who have witnessed two buses, full of children from two separate orphanages, involved in a head-on collision. And the littling down process hasn't been helped, particularly, by the film's star, Hugh Grant, who gave a cheerfully detached performance on television with Jonathan Ross, indicating that he wasn't exactly pinning Oscar hopes on it. His pairing »

29 December 2009 12:01 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Trailer: Furry Vengeance

29 December 2009 7:40 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Brendan Fraser’s got a new movie coming out with Harrison Ford in February called Extraordinay Measures but this new move, Furry Vengeance is of the more comedic nature!

Furry Vengeance stars Brendan Fraser and Brooke Shields and is directed by Roger Kumble. It’s scheduled for release 7th May and from the trailer which you can view below or in HD on Apple, Fraser continues to do what he does best, making us (some of us!) laugh.

Synopsis: A live action family comedy in which an ambitious young real estate developer, Dan Sanders, faces off with a band of angry animals when his new housing subdivision pushes too far into a pristine part of the wilderness. Led by an incredibly clever raccoon, the animals stymie the development and teach our hero about the environmental consequences of man’s encroachment on nature.

Hey, What's Coming Out in January 2010!?

28 December 2009 4:32 PM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

By now you're surely sick of high-quality films. You're fed up with James Cameron and Squeakquels and year-end Oscar push movies. By this point you're itching for January, a movie month that only a true genre geek could enjoy. Or someone who loves the geeky risk of maybe seeing a really rotten flick. Yes, January offers that much and more!

Week 1

Daybreakers (Lionsgate) -- A nifty horror sci-fi mash-up that played Toronto and Fantastic Fest and played 'em well.

Leap Year (Universal) -- Amy Adams and Matthew Goode in a romantic comedy about romance. I'll rent it one day because Amy Adams is cute 'n' sexy.

Youth in Revolt (Weinstein) -- The Weinsteins still release films? Yes, but only ones that have been sitting on their shelf for over a year. In this one, an uncomfortable Michael Cera tries to woo a girl. (Oh, you've seen it already?)

Week 2

The Book of Eli »

2010 Winter movie preview

28 December 2009 9:17 AM, PST | Tampa Film Examiner | See recent Tampa Film Examiner news »

What's worth checking out inside?

The Winter movie release schedule for 2010 is pretty much a roll-of-the-dice for moviegoers.  Obvious choices like Shutter Island and Alice in Wonderland will attract audiences for a variety of reasons.  Will there be anything else that will standout over the next few months though?  Here's a look at some possible flicks to check out and ones you may want to avoid.

2010 begins with the uber-popular vampire genre in Daybreakers.  Vampires are still a draw these days and that alone will have people heading to the theaters.  Having a top-notch cast that includes Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe could give this movie some life (pun intended).  The story seems to be predictable though, and having vampires that aren't terrifying is getting a bit stale.  In the end, fangs=$$$.  This is one of those times where one should read the critics take on this before going in blind. »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Six

27 December 2009 10:09 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Last Airbender

Opens: July 2nd 2010

Cast: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel

Director: M. Night Shyamalan

Summary: A live-action film based on the Nickelodeon animated TV series. In a fantastic world where civilisation exists as four great empires, a reluctant young child sets out on a perilous journey to restore balance to a world torn apart by war.

Analysis: It has been quite the decade for M. Night Shyamalan, who started it as a household name with the label of a modern-day Hitchcock thanks to the likes of "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs". Today he's considered more of a one-trick pony and in some cases a punchline due to rampant stories of egomania run wild and a series of much derided onscreen flops like "Lady in the Water" and "The Happening".

Thus 'Airbender' marks a potential return to form for the helmer. An adaptation of the hit »

Mia Kirshner Comes to Vampire Diaries—but Is She Already Dead?

21 December 2009 2:25 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Can Matt Davis do a good Harrison Ford? How about a good Dexter Morgan? We're about to find out on Vampire Diaries, because sources tell me there's much more to the casting news that just broke about Mia Kirshner (24, The L Word) joining the cast for a recurring role. While it's true she's playing Isobel, the wife of Matt Davis' ridiculously named schoolteacher character Alaric, she might already not be of this world... According to my sources, Kirshner will appear on the series beginning Jan. 21, but her scenes won't be in present-day. They will be in flashbacks because her character Isobel is already dead. And you'll never guess who killed her. No really, go ahead, »

Kristin Scott Thomas: 'I've been a very sad person, but I'm not any more'

20 December 2009 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Kristin Scott Thomas on self-belief, not being on the right list in Hollywood and playing John Lennon's Aunt Mimi in her latest film

The moment that Kristin Scott Thomas knew she didn't want to be a typical movie star, the moment it seems she switched from playing romantic leads to infinitely more interesting roles, was when a director told her she should make her character more appealing. The idea didn't grab her. "I just thought, I don't want to do that," she says. "I don't want to have to be pretty. I don't want to have to be adorable. Because if I'm watching that on screen I get irritated." She sits back with a sigh. "I can't bear it."

It was an astute response. After all, Scott Thomas's best work is not about looking doe-eyed and flicking her hair; instead it's defined by froideur, then thaw. There is a toughness in her performances, »

Yes Man (Peyton Reed, 2008)

10am, 8pm, Sky Movies Premiere

Remember Jim Carrey in Liar, Liar, where he forces himself to tell the truth for 24 hours? Well, here Jim Carrey forces himself to answer yes to any request, for a year. Which is upping the ante somewhat, but doesn't make it a better film. This is a return to the manic, gurning, not-very-funny Carrey, as if The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine etc hadn't happened. Just say no.

The Golden Compass (Chris Weitz, 2007)

Dinner for Schmucks

Opens: July 23rd 2010

Cast: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Bruce Greenwood, David Walliams

Director: Jay Roach

Summary: A renowned publisher encourages his friends to invite the most pathetic guests possible for their weekly dinner party. Just as they find the most pathetic man yet, the host is injured and ends up trapped with the man all night long.

Analysis: A remake of director Francis Veber's 1998 César award-winning "Le Diner des cons", 'Schmucks' is one of the highest profile comedies of next year with one of the strongest casts for the genre in recent memory. It also marks the return of "Austin Powers" and "Meet the Parents" helmer Jay Roach who has produced several films in recent years but hasn't directed since 2004's "Meet the Fockers".

Keri Loves Her Coffee Talk in NYC

17 December 2009 1:30 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Keri Russell put on her comfy coat yesterday when she headed out to grab a coffee in NYC. She took her cup to go, then sat outside the cafe to make a quick call on her BlackBerry. It's been a low-key few months for the actress, as she spent time at home in Brooklyn with her leading men River and Shane. Soon she'll be hitting the red carpet, though, when it's time to promote Leaves of Grass with Ed Norton - check out that film's trailer - and Extraordinary Measures, formerly known as Crowley, with Harrison Ford before they hit the big screen soon.

Self-Described Failure Alec Baldwin Talks Career Highlights

16 December 2009 10:05 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

A little while back it was said that Alec Baldwin simply didn't have an interest in his craft anymore and would be retiring from acting when his award-winning bout on NBC's comedy series "30 Rock" ended, most likely around 2012. To make matters worse, Baldwin went even deeper and darker: "I consider my entire movie career a complete failure." Powerful, but sad words from a gifted actor. Some people have written this off as an empty promise, but when Baldwin sat down with Wired, he went through his career ups and downs and talked about how making terrible films has saved his career on many occasions. Read on! Despite Baldwin's follies from losing the Jack Ryan franchise to Harrison Ford after The Hunt for Red October to appearances in less than stellar films like My Best Friend's Girl and The Cat in the Hat, it seems his failures ultimately ended up »

Miller Talks '300' Follow Up

15 December 2009 5:30 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Frank Miller recently spoke up on just what he's got cooking for his return to the "300" world: Miller is preparing a follow-up now titled “Xerxes,” which begins about 10 years before the events of “300,” and Snyder has expressed interest in it as a film property as well. “It’s the battle of Marathon through my lens,” Miller said Wednesday. “I’ve finished the plot and I’m getting started on the artwork.” Well, the good news is that for right now it's only in graphic novel form. Hopefully it stays that way. I mean I enjoyed "300" but it doesn't need another chapter. Yes, I've said that about many seemingly stand-alone stories that have gotten sequels, but come on. It was a story about a last stand; all the heroes died at the end. Now we're gonna follow the villain around, ten years earlier? Will there be golden skies and CG blood »

See new clips from CBS Films' "Extraordinary Measures," starring Harrison Ford, Brendan Fraser, Keri Russell and Courtney B. Vance. The Tom Vaughan-directed drama opens on January 22nd next year.

From his working class roots, John Crowley (Brendan Fraser) has finally begun to taste success in corporate America. Supported by his beautiful wife Aileen (Keri Russell) and their three children, John is on the fast track.
