Film Review: ‘The Rewrite’

13 November 2014 4:27 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A screenwriter has to be mightily confident in his script to christen it “The Rewrite,” a title that begs jaded critics to suggest it may have needed another pass or two. Marc Lawrence’s affable but under-inflated romantic comedy does little to fend off such punchlines: The story of a faded Hollywood scribe seeking to regain his creative mojo via a small-town teaching job, the film finds its own writer-helmer struggling to match the bubblegum snap of earlier works. What it does have is Hugh Grant — a standby collaborator for Lawrence, and not an asset to be underestimated. Happily paired with the ever-game Marisa Tomei, the British star hardly tests himself with yet another study in high-class bumbling, yet his breezy effortlessness is precisely the kind that’s in overly short supply here.

Given its easy digestibility and an ensemble speckled with familiar faces — including erstwhile “Juno” spouses Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons, »

Stephen Frears’ ‘Florence’ Warbles Way To Strong World Sales Via Pathé – Afm

12 November 2014 2:42 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

While the biggest game in town at the past week’s Afm has arguably been Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, other prestige titles have certainly enticed foreign buyers. Among them, Pathé‘s Florence, which is now going by the name Florence Foster Jenkins. The Stephen Frears-directed biopic about the real-life New York heiress and socialite who coveted a career as a great opera singer, but who lacked any real ability, stars Meryl Streep in the eponymous role and Hugh Grant as her partner and manager. Pathé has retained distribution rights in the UK, France and Switzerland. The international sales team, led by Muriel Sauzay, also secured key deals during the market in Australia (eOne), Germany (Constantin), Greece (Feelgood), Hong Kong (Sun Dream), Israel (Shani), Italy (Lucky Red), Japan (Gaga), the Middle East (Gulf Film), Scandinavia (Svensk), South Africa (M-Net) and Turkey (Fabula), among several other territories.

From Benedict Cumberbatch to Idris Elba, Americans can't resist a suave British man

6 November 2014 1:12 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Once, Americans swooned over bumbling, floppy-haired Hugh Grant. But the new breed of British dreamboats are largely tough, upper-crust men of action and theyre all over our TV shows

Maybe we should blame it on Hugh Grant, that floppy-haired, bumbling star of so many romantic comedies of the 90s and 00s, including Love, Actually (which goes into endless repetition as the holiday season approaches). It just seems like Americans cannot get enough of posh British dudes though our tastes seem to be changing with the times.

The latest to grace our shores on a regular basis is Tom Hiddleston, most widely know for playing Loki in The Avengers and two Thor movies next to Chris Hemsworth (the pile of Australian muscle is another type Americans love, but that is a whole different study entirely). Hiddleston is slated to star in The Night Manager, a British spy miniseries based on a John le Carré novel, »

Afm Kicks Off With Prestige Fare Amid Global Shifts & Hunt For The Perfect Fit

5 November 2014 2:00 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

A decade ago, when the Afm forged in to replace Mifed in November, it was a bastion of B-movies with B-List stars hawking themselves in multiple films, and a slew of deals that often didn’t result in anything. Now, with studios only wanting to finance sequels and superhero movies, and requiring partners to fully fund or partly pay for everything else on their slates, indie companies have new currency and are dealing with some of the biggest films in the business, with everyone from Gary Ross (The Free State Of Jones) to Quentin Tarantino (The Hateful 8) in Santa Monica courting foreign buyers.

As it sheds the schlockfest stigma the Afm once bore, attendees are focused on the increased importance of offshore returns and a more disciplined approach to the business. There’s a lot of money in the market, but rigor is key while packaging has become tougher as »

Gotham Season 1 Episode 6 Review – ‘Spirit of the Goat’

29 October 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews episode 6 of Gotham

Something from the past comes back to haunt Gotham’s police department, while things come to a head for one of their newest recruits…

Character development for the sake of it within the confines of a burgeoning series is dicey. If done badly then the episode is left forever blowing in the wind, segregated and awkward alongside its more mainstream compatriots. However when done well and tied into a story worth the telling, this rarefied breed broadens and benefits everything else. Thankfully this example falls into the latter category.

Essentially a two hander between Ben McKenzie and Donal Logue who appear to be finding their feet within the Gotham perimeters, there is less painful dialogue and more entertainment on display this week. An absence of back catalogue Batman characters and the expectation that comes with them is refreshing, while a lack of pantomime villainy »

13 'Pride and Prejudice'-inspired movies, books, TV shows and more, ranked

27 October 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's a truth universally acknowledged that a person in want of a good project will adapt Pride and Prejudice-if not always to dazzling effect. The latest take, a two-part miniseries called Death Comes to Pemberley, premiered yesterday on PBS. And if there's anything P&P fans like almost as much as Austen's book, it's consuming and then critiquing the various interpretations of it. Which is why we're taking this opportunity to rank 13 different iterations of Pride & Prejudice, from the best (the 1995 miniseries starring Colin Firth is a nigh-untouchable high point) to the significantly less great. 1.
