Q&A: Best 'Best Actress' Decade? Gay for Play as Actorly Rite of Passage?

16 June 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Four more reader questions to kick off the weekend. Wheeee. As ever, I'd love to hear your answers to these questions thrown my way.

Matt St Clair: Is there an unseen awards contender this year that you are hoping doesn't fail?

Nathaniel: My "please let this be successful" hopes reside with Blade Runner 2049 (because the original's reputation being tarnished would be such a pity), The Greatest Showman (because musicals Must continue to thrive) and Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (because it's infinitely annoying that Annette Bening doesn't have an Oscar yet and didn't even get nominated for such gorgeous work in 20th Century Women). While we're well- wishing please let Wonderstruck, How to Talk to Girls at Parties, and The Florida Project could be bigger hits than usual for Todd Haynes, John Cameron Mitchell, and Sean Baker, since they're three of our most distinctive American auteurs.

Great Job, Internet!: Kumail Nanjiani has a very nice story for you

15 June 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Kumail Nanjiani is having a banner year. Not only is he a Silicon Valley highlight with exciting projects on the horizon, he’s also the co-writer and star of an acclaimed new romantic comedy, The Big Sick (which we loved). In the wake of this success, Nanjiani took on a moment on Twitter last night to reflect on his favorite childhood movie and how he came to revisit it upon the release of The Big Sick.

It’s a beautiful, affirming story that serves as a symbol of the role art can serve in our lives, the ways in which a single movie/song/book can come to shape our sensibilities and provide an emotional resonance that ripples throughout adulthood.

For Nanjiani, it was writer Richard Curtis’ 1994 comedy Four Weddings And A Funeral, which starred Hugh Grant at perhaps his most charming. Read Nanjiani’s whole story below:

‘My Cousin Rachel’ Review: Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin Have an Uneven Affair in Moody Daphne du Maurier Adaptation

13 June 2017 7:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Despite its title, “My Cousin Rachel” is not a family comedy set over a Bat Mitzvah weekend in New Jersey, though it might yield similar audience demographics. Rather, it is a moody period romance from “Notting Hill” director Roger Michell starring Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin, and one of a diminishing breed of mid-budget studio dramas.

Of course, the title wouldn’t have been so funny when the novel came out in 1951, written by Daphne du Maurier. The twentieth century British author and playwright’s work has inspired many great films over the years, including Nicholas Roeg’s “Don’t Look Now” (1973), starring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, as well as two from Alfred Hitchcock (“Rebecca” and “The Birds”). Lesser known is 1952 version of “My Cousin Rachel,” starring Richard Burton and Olivia de Havilland. Though classified as a romance novelist, her stories are more about the darker side of love and its obsessive qualities, »

The Moustaches of 'Maurice'

9 June 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Murtada

Do you not  think that Maurice’s moustache would be the making of him?

No. It’s revolting.

This exchange about an hour into Merchant-Ivory’s 1987 classic gem Maurice, made me laugh so hard. There are so many moustaches in Maurice. It must’ve been the fashion in Edwardian England. But Hugh Grant’s Clive Durham is right, Maurice’s is revolting. But then how come later on he grows one even more revolting. In the world of Maurice, moustaches are the ultimate boner killers.

Maurice (James Wilby) and Grant’s Clive meet when they are students at Cambridge in 1909 and fall in love. Their relationship means a bit more to Maurice, he’s so smitten. And who wouldn’t be infatuated with Grant at the height of his floppy haired gorgeousness. Clive though always keeps him at an arm’s length, never succumbing to carnality. And we »

The 25 Best Comedies of the 21st Century, Ranked

9 June 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Now more than ever, the world could use a laugh. This bizarre, in-progress century has already produced any number of great comedies, which is to say that many of your (and our) favorites were left out: sorry, “Toy Story 3”; sorry, “Knocked Up.” As we tend to lean toward the indie side — and away from certain men-behaving-badly movies — there are also some titles on here that you might not have seen.

There are even some you may not consider to be straightforward comedies. You may not think of “Lost in Translation” or “Mistress America” as laugh riots, but we felt it best to be broad in our approach — any movie that balances its darker shades with cathartic humor was eligible. You’ll notice that we like women and Working Title (the British production company responsible for several titles on this list), which is to say: This is less a definitive »

26 new UK TV shows to look out for

31 May 2017 7:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jun 1, 2017

Some exciting new UK drama and comedy commissions are making their way to TV over the next year or so…

We know, we know. You still have two episodes of Fargo season two before you can think about starting season three. You’ve already fallen behind on American Gods. Your planner memory is chock-a-block with Big Little Lies and that Oj Simpson thing and some Spanish prison series your workmate bullied you into recording. You’re struggling to make time for Twin Peaks. New Game Of Thrones is just around the corner. And guess what, Netflix UK have just added a whole new season of It’s Always Sunny, those sods. You need a list of new TV show recommendations like you need a hole in the head.

And yet, as long as they keep making them, we’ll keep recommending them. »

Just days after The Weinstein Company set a January 2018 release date for the upcoming sequel Paddington 2, the studio had unveiled the first teaser trailer for this upcoming sequel. Along with the trailer, The Weinstein Company has also unveiled the first nine photos featuring Paddington Bear, along with a first look at new characters Knuckles McGinty (Brendan Gleeson), Phoenix Buchanan (Hugh Grant) and the returning members of the Brown family.

The Weinstein Company debuted this new trailer earlier today, which opens with Paddington Bear starting his new job as a window cleaner, but it doesn't go too well.

This trailer also gives us a glimpse of Peter Capaldi's Mr. Curry, who returns from the original movie, »

First Teaser Trailer for the Return of the Lovable Bear in 'Paddington 2'

30 May 2017 3:54 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"The hunt begins..." He's back! One of the surprise hits of 2014 was the live-action Paddington bear movie, which many critics said is actually much better than expected. So, of course, they whipped up a sequel in no time and now it's hitting theaters later this year. Paddington 2 opens in the UK in November and the first teaser trailer has arrived. Paddington, now happily settled with the Brown family, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen. The very British cast includes Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Peter Capaldi, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, and Hugh Bonneville, with Ben Whishaw returning as the voice of Paddington, and Imelda Staunton as the voice of Aunt Lucy. This looks a bit zany and cheesy, but still lots of fun. Enjoy. Here's the first teaser trailer »

Author: Jon Lyus

Let’s start the day with a heart-warming story about an immigrant who contributed greatly to the happiness of those who took him in. Paddington 2 is coming, and director Paul King’s second blend of Movie-London live action and the genuinely impressive CG bear appears to be just as lovable and enticing as the first.

Two new cast members join the gang, namely Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson who will be appearing along with Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, with Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington. Here are the studio-approved descriptions of the new players in this tale of Peruvian immigrance.

The Loveable Bear Sets Off On Another Grand Adventure In First Paddington 2 Teaser

30 May 2017 2:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pack the finest marmalade sandwiches and prepare for another grand adventure – the legendary little bear is back in today’s first-look teaser for Paddington 2.

Heralding the return of writer-director Paul King – who crafted a heartfelt sleeper hit two years ago, when the original Paddington charmed its way to a global cume of $268 million – StudioCanal’s CG/live-action sequel opens at a time when Paddington Bear is considered a permanent member of the Brown family. But there’s trouble brewing in Windsor Gardens. While moseying around a London antique shop, our fuzzy, pint-sized protagonist happens across a unique pop-up book, one which he deems to be the perfect present for Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday.

So far, so Paddington. But when the book is stolen by a mystery thief, our kind-hearted lead is forced to scramble across the four corners of London. Skyfall and Spectre‘s Ben Whishaw is back in the voice booth, »
