Argo was released October 12th, »
While a win for SAG ensemble doesn’t always line up with an Oscar win for best picture, it can be seen as a good bellwether. Last year, “Argo” took both awards, but in years past, such ensemble winners as “The Help,” “Inglourious Basterds” and “Little Miss Sunshine” failed to clinch the best picture award at the Oscars. Still, the SAG nod is a sought-after prize.
This year, there are two films that could figure prominently into the Oscar race yet likely won’t be considered for an ensemble kudo. One is “All Is Lost,” in which Robert Redford delivers a stellar performance as a man lost at sea that has many considering him the front-runner for the lead actor Oscar. Technically, he’s an ensemble of one. But if that one actor is as good as Redford, could a case be made to include him in the ensemble category as well? »

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2001, and a vintage year for lesser-seen gems...
Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke may have seen 2001 as the year we'd head off to meet alien intelligences in the depths of space, but in reality, its cinematic landscape was dominated by fantasy rather than extra-terrestrials. Rowling and Tolkien dominated the box office, with Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone and The Fellowship Of The Ring earning almost $1bn each, while Monsters, Inc and Shrek thrilled old and young audiences alike.
At the other end of the spectrum of success, 2001 was such a vintage year for movies that we had to whittle our usual selection of 25 films down from an initial selection of more than 40. This is why the decision was made - with heavy heart - to exclude some of our favourite films, »
“Enough Said  is a romantic comedy and the music is a much smaller instrumentation and the core of the music is piano, guitar, and a little percussion,” states Marcelo Zarvos (Brooklyn's Finest). “We had some orchestral pieces later in the film for some emotional moments that happen.” It was important for musical score not to be overpowering. “The dialogue is fantastic and you have amazing actors who are delivering those lines.” The Brazilian composer notes, “You’re laughing at the characters because they exist; that’s my favourite type of comedy to work on because I feel that the music doesn’t have to be pandering for laughs. It’s more accentuating and pointing out that this is a »
Here's the first trailer for a modern-day adaptation of William Shakespeare's Cymbeline. The movie was directed by Hamlet director Michael Almereyda, who teamed back up with Ethan Hawke to bring this story to the big screen.
The new adaptation takes "the tale of Roman and Celtic nobility battling it out and takes it to the streets. Explosions, machine guns and lots of people looking pretty grimy."
As of right now there is no release date for the film. It doesn't even have a U.S. distributor. Thanks to The Playlist.

Both director Michael Almereyda and actor Ethan Hawke are returning to Shakespeare with an adaptation of one of the Bard’s lesser known and late (perhaps even final) works. In fact, this is its first big screen treatment.
Cymbeline tells the story of Imogen, daughter of Cymbeline (King of Britain) and her elopement with Posthumus. However, problems face the loving pair when daddy decides he’s not so keen on his new son-in-law. It’s all set against the backdrop of Celtic/Roman Britain and warring factions.
Almereyda is no stranger to Shakespearean adaptations. In 2000 he tackled crowd-pleaser Hamlet, which also starred Hawke as the procrastinating Prince of Denmark, in a modern re-telling of the tragedy complete with business suits and CCTV surveillance. Cymbeline will have a Sons Of Anarchy vibe, transposing the war to drug dealers and bikers. And if the trailer’s anything to go by, it’s »

Michael Almereyda’s (Hamlet) latest film adaptation of a work of William Shakespeare, Cymbeline, has a lot going for it on the surface. Not only does it feature all of the flowery language and intricate, twisting plot elements that one would associate with a work that was penned by the Bard, but it also features an extensive ensemble cast that’s full of familiar faces, and more action than you can shake a stick at. Almereyda has taken a pretty soap opera-heavy story about love and deceit, set in a world of ancient nobility, and plopped it right down in a modern drug war between a crew of corrupt cops and a gang of unruly bikers, he’s got big stars like Ethan Hawke, Penn Badgley, Dakota Johnson, Milla Jovovich, Anton Yelchin, John Leguizamo, Ed Harris, and a handful of others helping to bring it all to life, and he’s brought more car crashes, machine »

Cymbeline unfolds as an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang set in a corruption-riddled 21st century America. In the vein of Sons of Anarchy and in the style of Romeo + Juliet, this is a fresh take on a universal story of love, betrayal and revenge. Check out the trailer, featuring Ethan Hawke, Milla Jovovich, Ed Harris, Penn Badgley and Dakota Johnson.
Four months ago, we reported that Ethan Hawke would reunite for his Hamlet director Michael Almereyda for another modern spin on the Bard’s work. This time, they’ve teamed up for one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known works, Cymbeline. In the play, the story is about [per Yahoo! Movies] “the impossible love between Imogen (Dakota Johnson) and Posthumus (Penn Badgley), and on the conniving influence of the Queen (Milla Jovovich) on her husband, King Cymbeline (Ed Harris).” The new adaptation was reportedly “in the vein of Sons of Anarchy and Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet, and is an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug-dealing biker gang set in a corrupt 21st century America.” The trailer has now come online, and it looks like Amereyda has delivered on that promise in an effective and exciting manner. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Anton Yelchin, John Leguizamo, »

Like Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet, director Michael Almereyda (of The Eternal, Hamlet previously) is taking on a contemporary adaptation of Shakespeare's lesser known Cymbeline. After directing Ethan Hawke in a similar style adaptation of Hamlet, Almereyda reteams with the Training Day star to amp up the tale of Romans and Celtics going head to head, this time with the aid of automatic weapons, explosions and a gritty cast of characters played by Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Anton Yelchin, Dakota Johnson. Benaroya Pictures describes the film in the vein of "Sons of Anarchy" and this first trailer supports that. Here's the first trailer for Michael Almereyda's Cymbeline from Ontd (via The Playlist): Cymbeline is directed by Michael Almereyda (Hamlet), based on William Shakespeare's original text. Ethan Hawke (Training Day, The Purge) stars in the film which unfolds as an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug »

Bay and Wahlberg teamed up earlier this year for the action-comedy Pain And Gain. Also starring Dwayne Johnson, Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub and Anthony Mackie, Pain And Gain was based on the unbelievable true story of three personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong.

Dirty cops, drug dealing biker gangs.... Now this is Shakespeare. Ethan Hawke has reteamed with his "Hamlet" director Michael Almereyda for a contemporary take on "Cymbeline" and they are moving fast. Lensing only went down in August, yet a trailer has emerged online already and it certainly throws any preconceived notions of the Bard out the window. Co-starring Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Penn Badgley, Anton Yelchin and Dakota Johnson, this new adaptation takes the tale of Roman and Celtic nobility battling it out and takes it to the streets. With explosions, machine guns and lots of people looking pretty grimy, we'd wager it's probably the most exciting treatment the otherwise less celebrated "Cymbeline" has ever gotten. No release date or even U.S. distributor yet for this one, though it has sold in numerous territories worldwide. Watch below. [Ontd] »

Though it was only shot recently, director Michael Almereyda has already assembled a promo for his take on William Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, which takes the lesser-known play and gives it an update that appears to blend the modern stylings of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet and the grittier edges of Sons Of Anarchy for a violent crime drama. The first trailer has now emerged online. Ethan Hawke, Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Anton Yelchin, Dakota Johnson, Penn Badgley, John Leguizamo and Delroy Lindo star in a labyrinthine romance which on the page includes deception, disguises, cross-dressing and supernatural intervention. We don’t see much evidence of the spookier elements, but there are a lot of guns and cars on display, plus the cast giving it their best Bard. The setting this time is among dirty cops and drug-dealing bikers in a crime-ridden modern-day America.Johnson plays Imogen, who disobeys her father »

"Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me"
What's It About? The Memphis band Big Star has legions of diehard fans and critical acclaim aplenty, and its influence can be felt across the history of rock 'n' roll. But why did mainstream success elude them? Why did Big Star flame out after only three albums? This doc tries to put the pieces together.
Why We're In: Even fans don't know the whole story about this cult band and its members, so this doc will help them fill in some of the blanks. Chris Bell died in 1978 as an unknown, and the late Alex Chilton was also not a huge fan of talking to the media. "Nothing Can Hurt Me" puts the band into context of the Memphis scene, and it has tons of interviews with everyone left who was involved with the band, rock critics, and »

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2000, and another 25 overlooked gems...
The new millennium brought with it an eclectic range of hit films. Hong Kong action director John Woo brought us Mission: Impossible II, the most profitable film of the year at the box office. Ridley Scott enjoyed one of the biggest critical and financial successes of his career with Gladiator, while Robert Zemeckis created a memorable drama with Tom Hanks and a ball named Wilson in Cast Away.
From a comic book movie standpoint, 2000 was also a key year. X-Men not only established a successful film franchise which is still going, with X-Men: Days Of Future Past out next year, but also headed up a wave of big-budget Marvel adaptations which shows no sign of slowing down.
As ever, we've travelled far outside the »
