Jason Isaacs on The Death of Stalin: ‘Cameron told me it was exactly like what was going on in Downing Street’

19 October 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor’s role in Armando Iannucci’s Soviet satire is another memorable one to go along with his turns in Harry Potter and the new Star Trek series. Here, he explains why he played Marshal Zhukov with a Yorkshire accent

Most actors, especially the male, British ones, will crack a few self-deprecating jokes in an interview, if only for form’s sake. Call it the Hugh Grant legacy. Jason Isaacs does this often enough to make you think he may actually mean it. “I just think I’m rubbish,” he says at one point. Then, later: “I can’t believe people don’t go, ‘I’m so sorry, we’ve made a terrible mistake for the last 30 years. Please go and open a cake shop.’” As regards his casting in The Death of Stalin, Armando Iannucci’s splendidly bleak new comedy about Soviet power struggles, he is even more »

Julia Roberts Reprises Her Film Career With James Corden’s “Help” On ‘Late Show’

5 October 2017 11:13 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Julia Roberts became the latest celeb to get the This Is Your Career treatment from James Corden on CBS’ Late Late Show. They acted out snippets from her career, starting with Notting Hill, in which Corden did the worst Hugh Grant impression on record — despite which Roberts said, “I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” Corden topped that with an even worse Mona Lisa, to help Roberts reprise Mona Lisa Smile.

5 October 2017 8:32 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On Wednesday's (Oct. 4) episode of The Late Late Show, Julia Roberts stopped by and reenacted some of her most iconic film roles with the help of James Corden. The host and actress crammed a number of snippets from her impressive filmography of more than 50 movies into a nine-minute sketch.

The duo first took on Roberts' turn in Notting Hill as Anna Scott, a successful actress commonly dubbed "America's Sweetheart."

See Julia Roberts Reenact Entire Film Career With James Corden

5 October 2017 5:57 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

James Corden and Julia Roberts reenacted scenes from Roberts' wide-ranging filmography on Wednesday, calling up brief, famous scenes from Notting Hill, Pretty Woman, Erin Brockovich and more on The Late Late Show. Roberts stopped by to promote her upcoming movie, Wonder

Corden got to play most of the famous leading men in the last thirty years of Hollywood blockbusters – he filled in for a mopey Hugh Grant in Notting Hill, a bathing Tom Hanks in Charlie Wilson's War and an aloof Jude Law in Closer.

Paddington 2 Trailer #2 Has the Bear Running from the Law

3 October 2017 5:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a couple of very rough days, the world could use a little bit of an adorable bear finding himself in mischievous scenarios. That being the case, the brand new trailer for Paddington 2 has arrived just in time. This trailer promises a family-friendly movie that is sure to make everyone smile and, if you saw the first movie, that shouldn't come as a shock. Much like the original Paddington movie, Paddington 2 looks like it could be an unexpected surprise.

The Weinstein Company and Studiocanal are partnered up for Paddington 2, which is set for release in the UK on November 10th, with the Paddington 2 U.S. release slated for January 12, 2018. With the release date creeping up, the studio decided to release a brand new trailer that gives us easily our best look at the sequel yet. We get to see Paddington (Ben Whishaw) on the run from »

Another Adventure with the Lovable Bear in Full 'Paddington 2' Trailer

3 October 2017 3:56 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Are you quite sure you're ready for the work-place, Paddington?" Studiocanal UK has unveiled the new full-length trailer for the live-action Paddington bear sequel, titled simply Paddington 2. In this movie, Paddington the bear, now happily settled with the Brown family, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present (a book) for his Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen. The film's 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. I much, much prefer this movie to the other British hybrid-cgi movie Peter Rabbit, which looks terrible. This, on the other hand, looks very adorable and totally fun. Here's the new full-length trailer (+ poster) for Paul King's sequel Paddington 2, direct from »

‘Paddington 2’: New Trailer Features an Incarcerated Bear and Hugh Grant as a Master of Disguise

3 October 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Paddington was one of the best surprises of 2015, and now a new Paddington 2 trailer has arrived. The sequel follows the adorable Paddington (Ben Whishaw) working odd jobs to make enough money to buy an antique pop-up book for his Aunt Lucy (Imelda Staunton), but when a washed-up actor (Hugh Grant) discovers that the book is worth a fortune, he steals it and frames Paddington. Now it’s up to Paddington’s family to exonerate the bear and get back the book. If you liked the first movie (and you should because it’s damn delightful), then … »

Full Trailer For ‘Paddington 2’ With Ben Whishaw & Hugh Grant

3 October 2017 2:14 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Early word on 2014’s “Paddington” was tentative at best. The live-action/CGI revival of the iconic British children’s character, created by Michael Bond (who passed away sadly this year) gave off a slight early whiff of “Garfield” or “Marmaduke,” had a rather unpromising early trailer, and even spawned the Creepy Paddington meme in advance of its release.

But when Paul King‘s film arrived, it proved to be a delight: a near-Pixar level of family entertainment with big laughs, a gigantic heart, real cinematic magic, and an utterly vital message about refugees.

The Best Performances in Bad Movies — IndieWire Critics Survey

25 September 2017 12:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best performance in an otherwise bad movie?

Joshua Rothkopf (@joshrothkopf), Time Out New York

There’s a Cult of Val (Kilmer, obviously) that I proudly belong to. Mainly it revolves around movies like “Real Genius,” “Top Secret!” and “Heat,” all excellent movies that don’t fit the parameters of this question. But you really don’t know Val until you’ve made your peace with Oliver Stone’s beyond-awful “The Doors.” The apocryphal anecdotes around Kilmer’s deep dive into Jim Morrison are insane: insisting that no one look him in the eye on set, wearing the same leather pants for months, »
