Danny Glover: the good cop

18 May 2012 4:11 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

He found fame as a policeman in the Lethal Weapon films, but it's his political activism that really drives him. He talks about his beloved Haiti, Obama's disappointing presidency and his friendship with Mel Gibson

A few years ago, Danny Glover sat in his car and cried. The Hollywood star and political activist had just heard the news that his friend, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Haiti's first democratically elected president, had been toppled in a coup backed by the Us and France. "It was 28 February 2004 and I sat in that parking lot crying uncontrollably, knowing that we'd have to start building again."

Glover fixes me with tired eyes as we sit in an upstairs room of the Crossroads Women's Centre in London's Kentish Town on a rainy Saturday afternoon. He has just flown in from the Us and the same evening will give a speech at the centre during a fundraiser for the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund. »

The Criterion Collection Announce August 2012 Blu-ray Slate Including The Royal Tenenbaums

15 May 2012 8:54 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

During the summer months, theaters are often full of blockbusters and "popcorn" films; movies meant to make one turn off their brain and forget the world around them and its troubles. Much like they do all year long, the folks at The Criterion Collection have a multitude of summer Blu-ray offerings during the months of July and August that demand one's brain be "on" and fully aware and ready for thoughts, ideas, and discussion.

In July, Criterion is releasing four Blu-ray titles, three of which are upgrades of previously released DVDs in the collection. Leading off these upgrades is Jim Jarmusch's sophomore directorial effort Down By Law, a 1986 noir-ish comedy starring Tom Waits. The other two upgrades come from director Whit Stillman; 1990's Metropolitan and 1998's The Last Days of Disco. Both films look take a look at various aspects of Manhattan life with a dry humor and wit that Stillman made his own. »

Turkish filmmaker Mahsun Kirmizigul’s movie, originally entitled Five Minarets in New York, also stars such American actors as Danny Glover (2012), Gina Gershon (Showgirls) and Robert Patrick (Safe House).

Fox Picks Up ‘Touch’ For Season 2

11 May 2012 6:51 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Amidst a rush of news regarding the fate of several bubble shows, Fox has announced that its sentimental, pseudo-science fiction drama, Touch, has been renewed for a second season.

The series concerns single-father Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland) as he tries to unravel the mystery behind his son Jake’s (David Mazouz) seemingly preternatural abilities, which involve the Fibonacci sequence, predicting events and love of orange soda. Along for the ride are co-stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Jake’s social worker and Danny Glover as a specialist who understands Jake’s abilities and helps guide Martin to a deeper connection with his speechless child.

Despite seeing a small decline in ratings, Fox has decided that the Kiefer Sutherland drama was one of the network’s freshman programs worth saving – something that cannot be said for fellow newbies The Finder and the ...

Touch: Season Two for Kiefer Sutherland Series

9 May 2012 10:41 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Kiefer Sutherland (24) and Fox will continue their long relationship into next season. Touch, the actor's newest TV series, has been renewed for a second season.

Touch follows the tale of Martin Bohm (Sutherland) and his struggle to connect with his young autistic son (David Mazouz), a boy who sees patterns that connect the people and events of the world. Other castmembers include Danny Glover, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Roxana Brusso.

The network took a gamble by giving Touch a special premiere in January, two months before the show would start airing regularly. The initial episode's performance was solid with a 3.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 12.01 million total viewers. But, would that audience remember to tune in again in mid-March?

They did, or at least most of them did. Touch returned on Thursday, March 22nd to a 3.3 rating and »

“Touch” Renewed, “Alcatraz” Locked Out

9 May 2012 7:09 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

More dominoes are falling and the puzzle pieces are starting to fall in place for Fox’s fall tv schedule. Mixed metaphor aside, Fox has announced (thanks be to EW.com for the scoop and the following Nielsen ratings) that Touch will be back for a second season, whereas Jj Abrams prison mystery Alcatraz has been served a life long sentence. While Alcatraz’s demise was hardly surprising given its middling ratings and mixed reviews, the show averaged a higher rating (3.4 million) than Touch (2.8). But Touch has Kiefer Sutherland (and Danny Glover!), and their thinking is that trumps Sam Neill, Jorge Garcia and Sarah Jones, even if I’m not sure Fox realizes that Touch isn’t quite 24.

I can’t say I’m too sad to see Alcatraz go, but I do know the show had its share of devoted fans, and the premise was great, the cast had potential, »

Harry Lennix to play Henry IV

5 May 2012 9:28 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

In a recent interview, actor Harry Lennix revealed that:

“Right now I’m doing what I think is the first black Shakespeare film ever done, which is called “H4”. It’s a reconfiguration using Shakespeare’s language of “Henry IV Part I and Part II”. I play Henry IV in it along with an estimable cast including Keith David, Angus Macfadyen from “Braveheart”, we have a number of young and talented actors.”

Harry Lennix also said that he's producing the film.

On IMDb, Michael Dorn is listed as playing the part of Henry IV, but Shakespeare fansite Bardfilm clarifies:

Michael Dorn will not be playing Henry IV in the finished version of the film. Scheduling conflicts prevent him from being available for the reshoots. But Harry Lennix, who played Aaron (and played him brilliantly) in Julie Taymor’s Titus, will take over the role.”

So, effectively, this is Commander Lock »

Sundance London: Luv Review

29 April 2012 5:55 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Sheldon Candis

Cast: Common. Michael Rainey Jr, Danny Glover, Dennis Haysbert

Running Time: 95 min

Synopsis: Over the course of one day, a shy 13-year-old forms a bond with his troubled uncle.

Luv, according to the Urban Dictionary means ‘A casual way of saying you really like someone without freaking them out by saying I love you. Commonly used by people early on in relationships, where it is too soon to say I love you. Luv may develop into love but it is not love.’ I thought that it one simply one of those terrible text things ‘u use t shortn msgs.’ Something I’m clearly not used to or indeed any good at. Something that really quite annoys me. Lol.

The phrase ‘luv’ is applied to this film as potentially the bond between rapper turned actor Common’s Vincent, and his young nephew Woody, played by Michael Rainey Jr. »

In "Noosphere Rising," "Touch" takes a rough turn. After the death of Teller (Danny Glover) last week, things are getting even more complicated. Jake's (David Mazouz) aunt Abagail Kelsey (Catherine Dent) has filed for full custody after hearing that Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) didn't show for the evaluation.

Jake is trying to show Martin and Clea (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) patterns through a poker hand called "Dead Man's Hand," as well as giving them Teller's key. Will they have the time to do this before Abagail gets her hands on him?

Check out the video clips below and give us your predictions for the episode. Sutherland is just knocking this show out of the park. "Touch" airs Thursday night on Fox.

Sundance London: Luv Review

26 April 2012 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Roger Dodger’ meets ‘Training Day’ in this powerful, if predictable coming-of-age tale from the mean streets of Baltimore. Rapper-turned-actor Common is ex-jailbird Vincent. Recently freed from prison and hoping to make that shift away from his criminal roots to legit businessman, he lives with his mother and nephew, Woody. Driving the youngster to school one morning, he decides instead to let him spend the day seeing how his uncle goes about his daily business.

A stop off at the bank (where Vincent is hoping to get financial backing to open his own seafood restaurant) is less successful than envisioned, and he’s told he needs to first pay back the arrears on his mother’s house before his dream venture can go ahead. With a deadline for payment looming, he takes Woody along to meet with his former shady associates in an attempt to drum up some funds. Unsurprisingly, his efforts lead to dire situations, »

Sundance London 2012: ‘Luv’ compelling viewing with a great child-actor performance

25 April 2012 10:24 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Luv

Written by Sheldon Candis and Justin Wilson

Directed by Sheldon Candis

USA, 2012

Fans of the Baltimore crime drama The Wire will probably take to this coming-of-age drama like a duck to water. Luv follows a day with Woody, a young boy whose mother has left him, and his uncle Vincent, who has recently been released from prison. When trying to legitimately start his own business, Vincent finds out that he is unable to secure funds for his venture and has to resort to his criminal connections to proceed.

For its 94 minute running time, there is a lot to process in terms of character and plot development.  The majority of the dialogue is very ‘street’, so it is sometimes hard to keep up with the developments if you aren’t familiar with the lingo, but what Luv doesn’t try and do is glamorize being a criminal like most crime dramas, »

‘Touch’ Stars Talk About The Deepening Mystery

25 April 2012 7:30 AM, PDT | Fox All Access | See recent Fox All Access news »

Touch” reached a turning point in its first season last Thursday night, as one character — Arthur Teller (Danny Glover) — was lost, and another — Clea Hopkins (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) — found herself more invested than ever in finding out more about the strange goings-on that now surround her.

So this coming Thursday’s episode promises to be an interesting one, as the mystery surrounding Jake Bohm’s (David Mazouz) abilities and Teller’s death deepens even further.

Compounding the drama is Jake’s aunt (Catherine Dent), who initiates a custody battle to try and pry Jake away from his father, Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland).

Fox All Access caught up with Sutherland and Mbatha-Raw at a “Touch” red carpet event in Hollywood this week, and producer Jeff Axelrod spoke to the stars about the new shifts in the series’ storyline.

All-new episodes of “Touch” air Thursday nights at 9/8c on Fox.

'Touch': 'Lost and Found' proves why this show has staying power

20 April 2012 12:44 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The episode started with Martin's (Kiefer Sutherland) recurring dream of hugging the son who won't allow himself to be touched. This could have been just a poignant moment, but it ended up being a huge piece of the mystery. If you're not watching "Touch," you really need to start. This show keeps getting better and better and it actually fills a huge hole in television these days.

At the winter press day in Pasadena, everyone introducing their shows made a big deal about how it was totally fine if you miss an episode. "Oh, this won't be like 'Lost,'" they said. The thing is, "Lost" was a phenomenon because you couldn't miss it.

Most of the shows on television this season are easy to forget about. "Oh, I'll just watch the episode online later," you might say. They pile up on your DVR and get erased in a chunk when it gets full. »

Sundance London 2012: preview – shivering with anticipation!

16 April 2012 9:57 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 26th-29th April sees the Sundance London Film and Music festival hit the O2 Arena, which sees the festival – renowned for its programme of independent film – take place in the UK for the first time in its 34-year history.

As a Sundance newbie, I am excited to attend the indie festival.  I’ve always heard so many great things about it, especially as a lot of great films initially got noticed at previous Sundance fests (Napoleon Dynamite, Clerks, Reservoir Dogs).

Looking at the line-up, I expect the cream of the crop of forthcoming independent releases.

Here are the following that I’m keeping my eye on during the festival:

For Ellen

The third feature film from In Between Days and Treeless Mountain writer and director So Yong Kim, and her first film with an American cast – a great cast ensemble, I need to add. Starring Little Miss Sunshine‘s »

'Touch': It's all about love in 'Entanglements'

12 April 2012 12:28 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Touch" is all about making love connections in "Entanglements." Not just romantic love. It's about familial love as well. Jake (David Mazouz) and his numbers bring greater understanding of family connections in the episode.

We're keeping this spoiler free, but here's what's coming in the episode. Jake has a huge evaluation looming and Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) is trying to get there. On the way, he meets a young woman with serious family issues.

In Saudi Arabia, a young woman defies her father, while in New York, a Chinese pickpocket comes to terms with where his daughter is and what fatherly love requires. Teller (Danny Glover) meets with his estranged daughter, who thinks his brilliance is actually a brain issue. What does this mean for his theories about Jake?

How they all link up is the usual fare on "Touch," though completely fascinating. We're still not getting any answers to our »
