Naomi Watts Looks Adorable Scooting Around L.A. in a Little Girl's Dress!

15 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Forget Bring Your Daughter to Work Day. It looks like Naomi Watts is participating in something way more fun: Be your daughter for the day! The only confusing thing is that the Birdman actress doesn't technically have a daughter. We're just going to assume she stole this from a friend's kid. Maybe her good mate Nicole Kidman? Although the denim sack could technically be an oversized shirt that one of her two sons would wear, and that scooter is definitely from their side of the backyard shed. Bottom line: The Impossible star is taking a much-deserved break from red carpet wear during a stroll around an L.A. farmers market. The straw hat and shades serve as an attempt at a disguise »

Ross Burden obituary

20 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Chef who found fame through the TV series Ready Steady Cook

Ross Burden, who has died aged 45 after undergoing treatment for leukaemia, was a celebrity chef who espoused the virtues of using local seasonal produce. He first came to public attention as a contestant in the TV cookery competition MasterChef, then became a regular on the BBC series Ready Steady Cook and a favourite private chef of stars such as Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Known for his charm as much as for the culinary skills he had learned from his grandmother as a child, he was once dubbed "the tastiest man in Britain".

Born in Taradale, in the Hawke's Bay region of North Island, New Zealand, he was adopted by Kelvin Burden, an electrician, and his wife, Anne, and described his childhood as idyllic. He told a New Zealand magazine: "As a kid, we had a bach [beach house] in Mahia. »

Colin Firth and Mark Strong Spook Nicole Kidman in Trailer for 'Before I Go to Sleep'

25 July 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Somewhere between this year’s “The Railway Man” and next year’s “Genius,” in a loose and unintended trilogy of Nicole Kidman-Colin Firth collaborations, comes “Before I Go to Sleep.” Breaking up the biopic trend of the other two films, their next collaboration is a full-blown thriller directed by Rowan Joffe (“Brighton Rock”). Kidman plays a woman whose short-term memory loss causes her to question her environment. A previous trailer shows her husband (Firth), trying to assuage her fears, who is undercut by a doctor (Mark Strong). Who's on her side? Surprise: shades of Hitchcock's "Suspicion," her beau is a little hard to trust. The preview sells a high class thriller of the sort where violence and sexual intrigue play a larger part than mere titillation. There is, of course, the chance that things could quickly go off the (ahem) rails, but Joffe earned points with 2010’s “Brighton Rock” — which, »

U.S. Majors Recover Box Office Ground in China in a Year of Solid Growth

25 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The U.S. majors enjoyed a big comeback at the Chinese box office in the first half of 2014, after stumbling in 2013 — but with the local B.O. growing by 25% over the same period in 2013, there’s enough upside for local filmmakers, too.

“China has been growing at this pace for the past five years,” says Y.C. Chu, g.m. of Hong Kong’s Emperor Motion Pictures. “We see no reason to think it will stop any time in the next five years, and if you have good cinemas, we can see growth continuing for seven years.”

Indeed, Emperor has redoubled its bet in the territory, recently diversifying from production, finance and distribution into mainland Chinese exhibition for the first time, inaugurating a 12-plex in the Guangdong Province city of Foshan just last month.

The Chinese box office delivered a cumulative gross of RMB13.6 billion ($2.2 billion) in the January to June period, »

UK Trailer Hits Before I Go to Sleep

25 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It's been well over a year since we've had anything to report about Rowan Joffe's Before I Go to Sleep, and today the long-awaited trailer has finally come across our desk here at Dread. It comes courtesy of the UK, and has definitely served to whet our appetite for the Memento-like thrills and chills. Dig it!

Look for Before I Go to Sleep in theaters on September 12th.

Written and directed by Joffe, the thriller stars Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong.

Synopsis

Before I Go to Sleep is based on the worldwide bestselling novel about a north London woman who wakes up every morning remembering nothing. Her husband tells her she suffered a trauma and that she dare not leave home. She sneaks off to a doctor who gives her a small digital recorder and urges her to play back her thoughts day after day in hopes of re-integrating her mind. »

Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth Star in the Before I Go to Sleep Trailer

25 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

What if you combined 50 First Dates with Memento? It would look something like Before I Go to Sleep. Based on S.J. Watson's best-selling novel, Nicole Kidman plays a woman who wakes up every morning with total amnesia. And if that's not bad enough, some real psychological-thriller business happened in her past. Colin Firth plays her charming yet seemingly sinister husband. Not sure how a vomiting walrus will come into play. »

Watch: Nicole Kidman Needs To Remember In New Trailer For 'Before I Go To Sleep'

25 July 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The elusive nature of memory can certainly be good fodder for drama. The idea of things remembered, forgotten or selectively recalled motivating the actions of a character is rich territory, but unfortunately, it doesn't really seem to be put to good effect in the forthcoming "Before I Go To Sleep," even when navigated by a cast like this. Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong are the leading trio in this Ridley Scott-produced thriller that follows a woman with an unusual problem: every time she goes to sleep, she wakes up with total amnesia, unable to remember anything about her life. Could a therapist be the one to lead her back to a normal life? Is her husband hiding dark secrets? Guess we'll see, but outside of the concept, this looks like standard genre fare at best. "Before I Go To Sleep" opens on September 12th. Watch below. [EW/Empire] »

Kahaani gets English version redux as Deity!

25 July 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Yrf Entertainment will remake the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Sujoy Ghosh directed and Vidya Balan starrer Kahaani, for Western and international audiences as “Deity”.

One of the coolest things is that “Deity” will be directed by Niels Arden Oplev (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”).

The movie is a thriller about an American woman who goes to Kolkata in search of her missing husband. As she gets closer to the truth, she finds herself at the centre of a dangerous conspiracy. The story unfolds in the context of a colourful, week-long festival.

An excited Sujoy Ghosh said, “It’s an incredible step by Yrf. Years back Aditya Chopra had said he wanted to make ‘Kahaani’ for a global audience… I thought he was kidding. But obviously not. Yrf has left no stone unturned on making the English version. The new script by Jose Rivera and Richard Regen is perfectly »

In the new teaser for Before I Go to Sleep, Nicole Kidman plays a traumatized woman who can’t remember the violent attack she suffered 10 years ago.

The debut 2011 novel from S.J. Watson was a best-seller, and Ridley Scott’s production company quickly nabbed its rights. Rowan Joffe, who wrote 28 Weeks Later, »

‘Before I Go To Sleep’ Remembers To Release A Poster

24 July 2014 2:24 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Based on the best selling debut novel from Steve Watson, Before I Go To Sleep, takes that classic plot device of amnesia in order to deliver a thriller at our door. Starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong, the film sees Kidman having to put the pieces of her life back together but soon realises her life may all be a lie. Although not the most original selling point, the strong cast ensures that we’ll be seeing some great performances. Rowan Joffe, the screenwriter behind 28 Weeks Later and The American, steps up to direct his second feature film after 2010′s Brighton Rock. Can this do for him what Memento did for Nolan and what 51 First Dates did for Peter Segal? Who knows?

The poster captures the idea of looking at things from different perspectives, as well as suggesting that not everyone is who they seem. No doubt readers »

Several new posters have been released recently and I'll begin with the above banner for David Ayer's Fury (click for full size), which clearly has the makings of three separate posters so I separated them and offer larger looks directly below.

Exclusive Before I Go To Sleep Poster

23 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The last time Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman shared a screen it was in a solid relationship in The Railway Man. Things are a little less calm this time. Before I Go To Sleep promises enough psychological shenanigans to send even the strongest couple into therapy, and its new poster, a Persona-like effort, gives a flavour of the turmoil beneath the surface. Rowan 'son of Roland' Joffé's second feature, the dark-hued thriller sees Kidman play the amnesiac Christine Lucas. Her burden is to solve a dark riddle, Memento-style, despite being stricken with total amnesia every 24 hours. She's understandably reliant on husband Ben's (Firth) help with her frustrating life. Could Mark Strong's doctor be the man to help them out of the maze?Before I Go To Sleep is based on the bestselling mystery potboiler by first-time author S.J. Watson and Joffé promises to mine golden-age Hollywood traditions in his interpretation. »

20 July 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The cycling movie is an expansive genre, covering everything from sports documentaries like the recent Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist to quirky comedies such as Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and fondly remembered children's adventure movies, like the oh-so-1980s BMX Bandits.

Cycling as a professional sport is also well represented on screen, whether it's the Indiana University Little 500 race in classic comedy-drama Breaking Away, an animated Tour de France in Belleville Rendez-vous or the Paris–Roubaix in Jørgen Leth's stunning documentary A Sunday in Hell.

With the Tour de France about to enter its final week, Digital Spy takes a look at the ten best cycling movies.

Peter Yates' wonderful small town comedy-drama won an Oscar for Best Screenplay and was nominated for four more, including Best Picture. Dennis Christopher stars as Dave Stoller, an Indiana teenager obsessed with the Italian cycling team, who gets »
