Sponsored Video: Johnnie Walker Blue Label Presents The Gentleman’s Wager Starring Jude Law

21 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Shot in the idyllic British Virgin Islands, and starring a-listers Jude Law and Giancarlo Giannini, Johnnie Walker Blue Label’s “The Gentlemen’s Wager” is more than just a typical advert for any-old drink.

The short film, directed by Jake Scott, sees Jude Law trying to win something he most desires; a 1928 rarer than that rare Italian boat that money simply can’t buy.

To win it, however, Jude Law is going to have to get his dancing shoes on.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label is a rare whisky that is hand selected by the Master Blender from the four corners of Scotland. Only 1 in 10,000 casks of whisky have the required character to be blended for Johnnie Walker Blue Label, with its smooth signature taste.

The whisky is presented in individually numbered bottles and is reminiscent of the 19th century style.

This post was sponsored by Johnnie Walker, but the words are our own. »

Guy Pearce And Dominic West Are Fitzgerald And Hemingway In ‘Genius’

27 September 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Having Colin Firth and Jude Law starring in your movie surely fulfills a quota for requisite manliness. But for his upcoming film Genius Michael Grandage is throwing Guy Pearce and Dominic West into the mix for a true story of literary giants and their personal turmoil. Pearce is playing The Great Gatsby writer F.Scott Fitzgerald and West takes on the mantle of tough guy author Ernest Hemingway (The Old Man And The Sea).

The pair enjoyed quite a friendship, but the focus of John Logan’s script is Max Perkins (Firth), arguably the world’s most influential book editor and his relationship with Thomas Wolfe (Law). It’s adapted from 1978’s Max Perkins: Editor Of Genius by A.Scott Berg. This all sounds very blokey, but Grandage is also delivering on the actress front, casting Nicole Kidman and Laura Linney in supporting roles. Tim Bevan is executive producer.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow 10 years on: A ground-breaking blockbuster

27 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's 1994, and aspiring filmmaker Kerry Conran sits down with his Macintosh IIci to begin work on a short film that's a throwback to the buccaneering adventure serials of the '30s and '40s. In those post-Jurassic Park days, computer-generated visual effects technology was still in its infancy, but Conran, a former CalArts student, saw the potential to tell a story he'd dreamed about. After four years of painstaking work with blue screen and his already-obsolete Mac, he fashioned a black and white teaser trailer for The World of Tomorrow.

Alongside Conran for the entirety of the journey was his brother Kevin Conran, who served as production and costume designer on both the short and eventual feature film. Speaking to Digital Spy from his home in California, Kevin recalled the lightbulb moment when his brother first pitched him the idea.

Lionsgate is shuffling its 2015 release slate, pushing Johnny Depp's Mortdecai from February 6, 2015 to January 23, 2015, while also moving Blake Lively's The Age of Adaline from January 23, 2015 to April 24, 2015.

Just one month after The Age of Adaline was given a January 23, 2015 release, Lionsgate is shifting it to April 24, 2015, where it will face Rock the Kasbah starring Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Kate Hudson and Zooey Deschanel, and Beyond the Brick: A Lego Brickumentary in limited release. »

"Dom Hemingway" Proves The Scum's Just As Green On The Other Side Of The Pond

22 September 2014 9:42 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Unsavory Europeans are in. James McAvoy sported his most detestable self in Filth, Martin McDonaugh is putting the eloquent ire in Ireland, with his younger brother John angling to establish himself as another wordsmith of societal disharmony and individual anarchy. Somewhere in that mix is the filmmaker Richard Shepard, most well known to date for helming the then recently decommissioned 007, Pierce Brosnan, in his repugnant turn as perverted, alcoholic hitman in 2005’s The Matador. While softening his approach for the occasional TV pilot, with Criminal Minds and Ugly Betty to his name and an Emmy in the bag, Shepard makes a raunchy, boisterous return to the Silver Screen with Jude Law as his new guinea pig, feeding from the slop trough of immoral absurdity.

The Essential Movies & TV to Stream This Week – September 15th 2014

15 September 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

First of all, something of an apology. I have been writing this column thinking that every single title due for release the following Monday would of course be released via some kind of pay to stream service. Of course it would, we are living in the future, and this is how things are done isn’t it?

Apparently not, last week I included Jeremy Saulnier’s much loved Blue Ruin in the pay to stream section and then it didn’t come out the way I thought it might. Turns out that some companies still have a fairly limited release pattern so Blue Ruin was released by channel 4’s DVD label and appeared on DVD and Blu but didn’t show up to stream on any of the major providers, not even Sky Store or Playstation Network.

So turns out that being a channel 4 release, you can of course rent »

The Last Of Robin Hood – The Review

4 September 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

As we bid goodbye to the Summer action blockbusters, we say hello once more to the serious slate of films looking to pick up award gold in the last few months of the year. And what better subject matter than the true story or the biographical or “bio-pic”? Maybe a good mix of the two, and since Hollywood enjoys celebrating itself why not tackle one of its greatest stars? Though not as highly merchandised today at contemporaries Bogart, Monroe, or Hepburn (either one), few stars shone as brightly in that golden age than Errol Flynn, king of the silver screen swashbucklers. Now Flynn was played by the similarly dashing Jude Law ten years ago in the Howard Hughes story, The Aviator. And previously he was parodied wonderfully by Peter O’Toole as Alan Swann in the raucous comic gem My Favorite Year in 1982 and by former Bond Timothy Dalton as »

12 lessons we learned from 2014's summer movies

30 August 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

What a summer at the movies! The galaxy got guarded. The future days went past, like some sort of extinct age. The planet of the apes stopped rising and started dawning. Our stars had a fault. And also: Lucy!

Hollywood had a rough season at the box office in summer 2014, with overall box-office receipts falling precipitously from last year’s flurry of mega-grossers. Going into this weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy, the highest-grossing film at the summer box-office, has earned about $256 million–which would have made it the fifth highest-grossing movie of summer 2013.
