Interview: Hossein Amini (The Two Faces of January)

24 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Continuing in the tradition of Patricia Highsmith’s set of globetrotters and vacationing daytrippers who dip their toes not only in foreign backdrops, but in tend to find themselves in the most inconvenient of situations, it is the American novelist’s 1964 novel that finds a suitor in British-Iranian writer (and now turned director in his own right) Hossein Amini.

Working with players such as Viggo Mortensen, Oscar Isaac and Kirsten Dunst, Amini, whose long list of creds include Michael Winterbottom’s Jude, Iain Softley’s The Wings of the Dove, Shekar Kapur’s The Four Feathers, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive and the upcoming Our Kind of Traitor, takes a stab at the thriller-genre with the sun-drenched Greece and Turkey as the conniving backdrop with The Two Faces of January, which opened August 28th and is still running in its limited engagement. Here is my interview with Amini which took »

Joel Edgerton Talks Thriller ‘Felony,’ ‘Exodus,’ Trials of Shooting ‘Jane Got a Gun’

18 October 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Joel Edgerton has one piece of advice to aspiring actors, it’s this: always be sure to check your inbox.

“I found an email the other day from my old agent in London, that I’d just sort of discarded because I was too busy at the time,” Edgerton recalls on a recent afternoon in New York, looking a tad professorial in full-rimmed glasses and beard. “It was this screenplay for a film by a first-time filmmaker that, if I was interested, I should consider auditioning for.” As it turned out, the filmmaker was Steve McQueen and the movie was “Hunger.”

Well, you win some and you lose some in this business, and lately Edgerton has been chalking up the wins. After back-to-back breakout performances in the Oscar-nominated “Animal Kingdom” (2010) and “Warrior” (2011), the 40-year-old Australian actor and screenwriter has been working nonstop in Hollywood, from his Navy Seal commander »

Kirsten Dunst Hits The Red Carpet With Garrett Hedlund, Debuts New Bangs!

17 October 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Kirsten Dunst has a mature new 'do! The "On The Road" star hit the red carpet with her longtime beau Garrett Hedlund at the Diesel Black Gold at Saks Fifth Avenue Launch and Flaunt magazine's 15th Anniversary Celebration in Beverly Hills on Thursday. Dunst looked gorgeous in her mint green '70s style dress, which perfectly matched her new fringe bangs. The 32-year-old completed her look with a black clutch and matching pumps. Hedlund looked equally stylish for the event wearing a black jacket, grey shirt and black slacks. The couple posed for pics together on the carpet and Garrett held on to his lady love with his arm around her waist. While we think the "Bring It On" star looks great with her new bangs, the haircut definitely ages the actress a bit. What do you think of Kirsten's new 'do?

Kirsten Dunst’s hairstylist did a bang-up job with her latest look! The Two Faces of January star attended a double event in Beverly Hills on Thursday, Oct. 16, and her handsome beau, Garrett Hedlund, wasn’t even her best accessory!

Google Responds to Jennifer Lawrence Attorney's $100 Million Lawsuit Threat

2 October 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

On Wednesday, attorney Marty Singer slammed Google in a letter that threatened a lawsuit with at least $100 million in damages for allegedly facilitating the posting of hacked nude photos. Although Singer was silent about exactly whom he was representing, records of takedown requests indicate he's challenging Google's conduct on behalf of Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst, Kate Upton and other stars. According to Singer, Google isn't abiding by its responsibilities under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to expeditiously remove owned images on platforms that include YouTube and Blogspot, nor is it being diligent about the URLs in its search engine.

The top 25 must-see movies of 2015

2 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…

Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein. 

What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »

‘Skeleton Twins’ Robust In Specialty Box-Office Expansion; ‘Pride’ Solid In Debut

28 September 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Even with another flood of specialty film debuts, The Skeleton Twins, the dramedy starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, had another impressive box office showing in its third weekend. Meanwhile, another dozen films tried to elbow past last week’s 14 newcomers and numerous others already in the market, to middling success among those reporting.

Other than Twins, the holdovers that look like they’re gaining some autumnal momentum include IFC FilmsThe Trip To Italy with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, and more niche-oriented films such as American Experience/PBS Films’ doc Last Days In Vietnam and Oscilloscope’s Art And Craft. Starz Media also scored a robust gross for the second week of Not Cool, featuring YouTube star Shane Dawson, as it migrated east to New York and was also profiled on a Starz channel doc series.

CBS Films’ Pride can be proud of scoring the weekend’s highest average among new titles. »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About The Fappening

27 September 2014 12:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Unless you’ve been living on the moon with both fingers literally in each ear then you’re probably familiar with the recent phenomenon that has been coined “The Fappening”. To put it in a nutshell: on August 31, 2014, a collection of almost 200 private pictures of various celebrities – including Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and more – were posted on the imageboard 4chan. They were quickly disseminated by other users on websites and social networks such as Imgur, Tumblr and of course Reddit.

It’s not entirely clear who uploaded the photos, or how many people were involved, but it’s safe to assume that simply due to the sheer volume of the images that they were indeed hacked and not “leaked” by the celebrities themselves (as a small minority of internet trolls have suggested).

Viggo Mortensen on Getting Lost and Saying No to Superheroes

26 September 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's hard to get a read on Viggo Mortensen's con man in The Two Faces of January, and that's awfully fitting, considering who plays him. Since the Lord of the Rings trilogy made Mortensen bankable, he's mostly spent that capital on unexpected character roles in a series of modestly budgeted indies, including this throwback thriller (adapted by Hossein Amini from the Patricia Highsmith novel), where Mortensen and his wife Kirsten Dunst are thrown together with Oscar Isaac after an accidental murder in 1960s Greece. No one is who they seem, and their alliances are always up for grabs, and Mortensen had a ball with the ambiguity. "It’s always fun to have secrets," he told Vulture, "but when you’re playing a con man, you’re having secrets within secrets within secrets."The film reminded me of A Perfect Murder, where you and Michael Douglas are vying for Gwyneth Paltrow »

Viggo Mortensen explains rooting for the bad guy in 'The Two Faces of January'

26 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In The Two Faces of January—a sumptuous adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 1964 novel of the same name that opens Friday—Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst portray Chester and Colette MacFarland, a golden couple embarked on a whistle-stop tour of southern Europe’s most glittering capitals.

Exuding wealth, privilege, and a uniquely American post-war pluck, the immaculately turned-out jet-setters’ fortunes grind to an abrupt halt in Athens where they meet an American tour guide named Rydal (Oscar Isaac)—an expat grifter with a straw fedora and palpable lust for Colette.

‘The Two Faces of January’ is a slow-burner that tests your loyalties

25 September 2014 11:51 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Two Faces of January

Written & Directed by Hossein Amini

UK/France/USA, 2014

 

Guilt is a powerful motivator.  Its nagging voice can corrupt even the noblest of intentions.  In the case of The Two Faces of January, a son’s guilt leads him into a questionable alliance in which he becomes inextricably trapped.  There are twists and turns, jealousy and lust, but the real pleasure of a film like this is watching how far people will go to silence those nagging voices.  Even if it means losing everything they care about.

It’s a misnomer to call the characters in January ‘con artists.’  Chester MacFarland (Viggo Mortensen) is simply a crooked stock broker with a long list of duped investors.  He and his scandalously young wife, Colette (Kirsten Dunst), have been throwing around some serious cash on their European getaway.  Serious enough to draw the attention of an American expatriate »

25 September 2014 6:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Denzel Washington is gearing up to show his box office might once more as The Equalizer debuts in 3,234 theaters, including IMAX and other premium large format screens, starting with early Thursday-night showings. The R-rated Columbia Pictures action thriller, which re-teams Washington with his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua, will easily win the weekend, beating out last week’s champ The Maze Runner and this week’s other new opener, the family-friendly The Boxtrolls.

Here’s how things might play out:

Specialty Box Office Preview: ‘Jimi: All Is By My Side’, ‘The Two Faces Of January’, ‘Pride’, More

25 September 2014 5:23 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Music is at the core of two new Specialty features making their theatrical bows this weekend, albeit from rather different ends of the spectrum. XLrator Media will open Jimi: All Is By My Side focusing on the artist’s life in London in nearly three dozen theaters, while Samuel Goldwyn Films will bow faith-centered The Song in over 300 theaters, the biggest number of runs for a limited release newcomer this week. Magnolia Pictures will take thriller The Two Faces Of January starring Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac to an initial half-dozen locations in the wake of its VOD release late last month and CBS Films is targeting the same number of runs for its Cannes ’14 feature Pride. Factory 25 is opening its art meets goth-rap thriller Hellaware and Cinema Libre will debut a former Swiss foreign-language Oscar contender The Little Bedroom in exclusive New York runs.

Kirsten Dunst Doesn't Want To Take A Selfie With You

25 September 2014 5:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Kirsten Dunst is one of those actors who wears her celebrity rather wearily, which you can't really blame her for given that she's been famous since she was 12 (not to mention a favorite target of the paparazzi over the years). So I can't help but feel like this new Matthew Frost-directed short film - in which two hilariously vapid, selfie-obsessed Angelenos treat her like a social-media prop - sums up her feelings about celebrity culture in general. Or not! Whatever the case, I loved her in "Lost in Translation." Aspirational from Matthew Frost on Vimeo. »

‘The Two Faces of January’ cannot sustain a sense of dread

The Two Faces of January

Written by Hossein Amini, based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith

Directed by Hossein Amini

USA, United Kingdom, France, 2014

Patricia Highsmith is one of those authors whose body of work the film industry just can’t stop panning for gold. The Two Faces of January is the latest adaptation of one of her books, and it ticks off most of the drinking game check marks we’ve come to expect from her stories: a vivid locale, desire that turns deadly, antagonists bound together by circumstance, numerous double-crosses, and a general mood of darkness in the soul. This is also the directorial debut of Hossein Amini, whose genre screenplays (Drive, Snow White and the Huntsman, 47 Ronin) have become a hot Hollywood commodity in recent years. With the help of a capable crew, Hossein has helmed a thoroughly capable film.
