'Furious 7', 'Jupiter Ascending', 'Paddington' & Many More in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

22 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can't remember the last time I had eight major titles to report on in an MPAA ratings bulletin, but today is that day with the most notable being the PG-13 for Furious 7 and all its "prolonged frenetic sequences of violence, action and mayhem", another PG-13 for Jupiter Ascending and its "suggestive content and partial nudity" and a PG for Paddington, which appears to be taking a small page out of Ted's book with some "rude humor". There's also the PG-13 rating for the much buzzed about (and worthily so) Selma from Ava DuVernay. In addition to that we have A24's Cut Bank starring Liam Hemsworth and Teresa Palmer as well as their action thriller Son of a Gun starring Brenton Thwaites, Alicia Vikander and Ewan McGregor. Warner Bros. has a couple in the mix with Jaume Collet-Serra's reteaming with Liam Neeson after Non-Stop in yet another "aging hitman" movie, »

What's Up With Ewan McGregor, From 'Son of a Gun' to Sundance as Jesus? (Clips)

16 December 2014 4:10 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Scottish thesp will soon be seen in Sundance epic "Last Days in the Desert," a chronicle of Jesus' 40 days of fasting starring McGregor as both Christ and the Devil. "Last Days" is directed by Rodrigo Garcia, helmer of the handsomely made "Albert Nobbs" and earlier, more intimate passion projects "Nine Lives" and "Mother and Child," which tangled the lives of women in interconnected vignettes. One of the most hotly anticipated Sundance 2015 titles, "Last Days" was shot in five weeks by Emmanuel Lubezki, who reunites here with "The Tree of Life"'s Tye Sheridan, costarring alongside McGregor and Ciaran Hinds. In the above image, Ewan McGregor channels the ragged and starving Jesus, but it's hard not to think of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the cloaked Jedi Master of "The Phantom Menace." Whether Scorsese's "The Last Temptation of Christ" with Willem Dafoe or Gibson's "Passion of the Christ" with »

Ewan McGregor Is Playing Jesus, Here.s How He Looks

11 December 2014 11:31 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Yet another film portrayal of Jesus of Nazareth will hit theaters in the new year. And the first photo of the worn-down and ragged Ewan McGregor, as the man of the hour in the new film, Last Days in the Desert, has just surfaced. Take a look. The photo released by The Hollywood Reporter, gives a glimpse into the setting where most of the film will take place, as the tale follows Jesus.s 40 day and 40 night fast through the desert. Upon the journey, the son of God is visited by Satan who tries to tempt the young man into breaking his fast, and turning against God. As the story in the Bible goes, Jesus obviously refuses, but not without struggle. This film looks to be a minimalist production but is bound to have a dramatic take on those emotional struggles. Ewan McGregor is also cast as the Devil in »

Exclusive Clip From Crime Thriller Son Of A Gun

11 December 2014 6:11 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Stars present and future butt heads in this new clip from Australian crimer thriller Son Of A Gun. In the red corner is Ewan McGregor as Australia's-most-wanted-type hardnut lunatic, Brendan Lynch; in the blue is Pirates Of The Caribbean 5's Brenton Thwaites as 19 year-old Jr, a relative newcomer to the muscle-topped gang. It's probably safest to put your Aussie dollars on the former - seriously muscled-up for this one - before clicking play on this one. brightcove.createExperiences(); The set-up sees Brendan (McGregor), with charm to match his menace, taking the young con under his wing when some lags try to brutalise him. His seeming saviour has one or two stipulation, however, namely that Jr helps him with a big heist on the outside. However, his planned getaway pilot has a new girlfriend (Alicia Vikander) and the job has lost some of its sheen since his release. This scene »

First Look: Ewan McGregor is Jesus Christ in Sundance's 'Last Days in the Desert'

10 December 2014 3:54 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ewan McGregor is darkness and light. The two-time Golden Globe nominee is playing the dual role of Jesus and the Devil in the forthcoming Sundance drama "Last Days in the Desert" - and the first photo of him as the former has arrived. It's pretty much what you'd expect - long brown hair, tattered robes, beard - but the film takes off from a different perspective than we've seen: namely, an "imagined chapter from his forty days of fasting and praying in the desert. On his way out of the wilderness, Jesus struggles with the Devil over the fate of a family in crisis, setting for himself a dramatic test." Directed by Rodrigo Garcia ("Albert Nobbs," "Passengers") and also starring Ciarán Hinds, Ayelet Zurer and Tye Sheridan, "Last Days in the Desert" is set to debut as part of Sundance's Premieres lineup. Check out the photo below. The 2015 Sundance Film Festival runs from Jan. »

First Image From Last Days In The Desert Features Ewan McGregor as Jesus In Exile

10 December 2014 3:07 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While absent from all of the big Sundance updates we were posting earlier this week, director Rodrigo Garcia's new film Last Days In the Desert will indeed be playing the festival next month.  Starring Ewan McGregor as Jesus, this film is bound to pick up the usual dust that accompanies movies that address this topic without self-identifying as "faith based."  What looks unimpeachable, however,  is the visual aesthetic of the film, which was shot by Emmanuel Lubezki. Hit the jump for a better look at the Last Days In the Desert image of Ewan McGregor as Jesus.  The film also stars Tye Sheridan, Ciarán Hinds, and Ayelet Zurer.  It premieres on January 25th at 6:30Pm at the Eccles Theater as part of Sundance 2015.

First Look: Ewan McGregor as Jesus and the Devil in Sundance Film

10 December 2014 2:07 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

What the hell heck is this film?! One of the wackiest, most eye-brow-raising selections of Sundance 2015 is a film titled Last Days in the Desert, written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia. The plot is explained as: "Ewan McGregor is Jesus -- and the Devil -- in an imagined chapter from his forty days of fasting and praying in the desert." As much as that sounds like the perfect comedy, it's actually a historical "adventure drama" (according to IMDb) where Jesus must overcome a "dramatic test" as he confronts the Devil, who is also McGregor. Our first look at Jesus has just arrived and because this is such a unique film, I can't help but share the photo (though it doesn't show much) as we count down the days to Sundance in late January.

Moroccan Producer Khadija Alami Plans Mini “Skywalker Ranch” in Morocco

10 December 2014 8:27 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leading Moroccan film producer Khadija Alami, one of the main line producers for foreign TV shoots, has purchased a plot of land near the Cla Atlas Film Studios in Ouarzazate and plans to build a mini “Skywalker Ranch,” a downsized version of George Lucas’ state-of-the-art facility near San Francisco, which will include studio and post-production facilities and production offices, specifically targeted at foreign productions.

In 2014, Alami line-produced three major TV shoots – “The Ark”, “King Tut” and “A.D. After Death” — and also Susanna White’s spy thriller “Our Kind of Traitor,” based on the John le Carré novel and starring Ewan McGregor and Stellan Skarsgard.

She is confident that the surge in Moroccan foreign shoots in 2014 will continue its upward trend in 2015 and that there will be increasing demand for studio space in Ouarzazate.

Ouarzazate, the “door to the desert,” is the preferred location for foreign shoots, given its proximity to the Sahara desert, »
