Kenneth Branagh boards Murder on the Orient Express remake

16 June 2015 11:56 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

British star set to direct new movie version of Agatha Christie’s locomotive homicide favourite

Kenneth Branagh is in talks to direct a new film version of Agatha Christie’s genteel tale of train slaughter, Murder on the Orient Express.

If the film proceeds, it will be the fourth screen transfer for the story, which concerns a mysterious death on a train departing from Istanbul and boasting a picturesque selection of passengers. The novel was most famously adapted in 1974 for a film starring Albert Finney as Belgium sleuth Hercule Poirot; subsequent TV versions in 2001 and 2010 starred Alfred Molina and David Suchet.

Kenneth Branagh May Direct the New Murder On The Orient Express for Fox

16 June 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It looks like Kenneth Branagh might have found his Cinderella follow-up. According to The Wrap, Branagh is currently in talks to direct a new adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express. The novel was first published in 1934 and has been adapted four times since - there’s Sidney Lumet’s 1974 feature film starring Albert Finney, a five-part radio series for BBC Radio 4, a made-for-tv version starring Alfred Molina that aired on CBS, and then another rendition for the series Agatha Christie's Poirot. Michael Green (Green Lantern) is set to pen the new Murder on the Orient Express film for 20th Century Fox. The narrative features a private detective named Hercule Poirot. During a trip aboard the Orient Express, an American man is murdered and Poirot agrees to investigate and try to find out who did it. Ridley Scott and Simon Kinberg are on board to produce the film alongside Mark Gordon. »

Cheyenne Jackson on 'American Horror Story: Hotel': 'It's Scary and Amazing'

15 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

How top secret is "American Horror Story: Hotel"? The actors haven't told their families what to expect when the latest installment debuts this October.

Moviefone caught up with Cheyenne Jackson June 7 at the Actors Fund Tony Awards viewing party, where the actor serenaded honoree Alfred Molina with a performance of Elton John's "Your Song."

So can we expect Jackson to sing on "Ahs: Hotel" as well? "I can't say. It's so top, top secret. Literally, not even my mom knows," he said. "I know it's set in a hotel and I know who's in the cast and I know it's scary and amazing. And that's all I know."

The cast, by the way, includes Lady Gaga in her her first TV role (she briefly appeared in "Machete Kills"), as well as Matt Bomer and Max Greenfield ("New Girl") and previous "Ahs" stars Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, »

DVD Review: 'Love Is Strange'

15 June 2015 12:52 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Two stand-out performances from John Lithgow and Alfred Molina illuminate Love Is Strange (2014), the new film from Keep the Lights On (2012) director Ira Sachs. Like 2013's comparable Chilean offering Gloria, it's the story of love in an older generation and just as moving. Lithgow and Molina play Ben and George, two Manhattanites who take advantage of changes to the law and get married after 39 years together in Central Park. However, soon after their honeymoon, George is abruptly fired from his position as a music teacher at a Catholic school after its conservative headmaster worries over public perceptions of his recent marriage.

Heavenly Sword is a dramatic tale of revenge that sees Nariko (Anna Torv), a fiery red-haired heroine, embark on a quest for vengeance against the invading King Bohan (Alfred Molina) and his army. Once considered the failure of a legendary prophesy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another. This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without it slowly but inevitably killing them. For Nariko it is a race against time to avenge her clan before her life is irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword.

I am going to preface this review by stating that I have never played the Heavenly Sword game. I am reviewing Heavenly Sword »

Ten Songs Forever Changed By Movies

31 May 2015 9:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

People have a pretty intimate relationship with music. The song that was playing when you had your first slow dance, broke up with that certain someone, or lost your virginity will rank higher for you than it will for some random listener. Even bad songs have a way of causing flashbacks, for better or worse. So when a movie ties a song to imagery we never imagined while making out in the back seat, it can shake up our reality a little. Say Anything permanently connected Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” with boom boxes and early-morning wake-ups, and who among us can hear Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” without regretting that they spent good money to see Sleeping with the Enemy? Here are some other songs that celluloid changed forever.

Oscar Isaac Heads To TV For David Simon’s ‘Show Me A Hero’

20 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The ‘O’ in HBO could well stand for Oscar, with the news that in-demand leading man Oscar Isaac has signed up to star in Show Me A Hero, a new miniseries from The Wire creator David Simon.

This Sixties-set piece sees Isaac head an ensemble cast as a New York Mayor, who faces a powder keg of social tension when he’s instructed by authorities to house minorities in white areas. Simon is renowned for tackling major issues on an unflinchingly honest level, so this project should be perfect for his writing talents.

Winona Ryder, Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina, Bob Balaban, Latanya Richardson-Jackson and Jim Belushi will share the screen with Isaac’s beleaguered official, and the director is Paul Haggis. It looks like the cable channel are pulling out all the stops with this one.

It’ll also provide a strong counterpoint to a forthcoming production featuring Isaac »

Winona Ryder, Jim Belushi, Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina, Latanya Richardson-Jackson and Bob Balaban also star.

Simon and William F. Zorzi will serve as writers, and will exec produce along with Nina K. Noble, Gail Mutrux and Haggis.

This Summer, Everybody Will Get Mad at Oscar Isaac Again in David Simon’s Latest HBO Minseries

20 May 2015 11:58 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Oscar Isaac stars in the upcoming HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero as Nicholas Wasicsko, the young mayor of Yonkers, New York. The six-part series is created by David Simon of The Wire and, less thrillingly, Paul Haggis of Crash, and is based on a nonfiction book of the same title by Lisa Belkin, which explored the racial strife that emerged in the late '80s when citizens protested a federally mandated public housing project in the predominantly white part of town. The cast also includes Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina, Winona Ryder, Latanya Richardson-Jackson, Bob Balaban, and Jim Belushi. Lots of angry white people will start yelling on August 16. »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1987

13 May 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From anime to pitch-black thrillers, here's our pick of the underappreciated movies of 1987...

Sometimes, the challenge with these lists isn't just what to put in, but what to leave out. We loved Princess Bride, but with a decent showing at the box office and a huge cult following, isn't it a bit too popular to be described as underappreciated? Likewise Joe Dante's Innerspace, a fabulously geeky, comic reworking of the 60s sci-fi flick, Fantastic Voyage.

What we've gone for instead is a mix of genre fare, dramas and animated films that may have garnered a cult following since, but didn't do well either critically or financially at the time of release. Some of the movies on our list just about made their money back, but none made anything close to the sort of returns enjoyed by the likes of 1987's biggest films - Three Men And A Baby, Fatal Attraction »

Cate Blanchett Opens the Closet Door with Lesbian Romance ‘Carol’

12 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s not surprising that “Carol” was locked away in Hollywood’s development closet for 15 years. Based on Patricia Highsmith’s scandalous 1952 novel “The Price of Salt,” Todd Haynes’ latest movie is a double whammy by industry standards: it’s headlined by two women, who fall in love with each other.

The film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, arrives at a pivotal, yet paradoxical, time for female-driven stories. There has been a string of hits this year that celebrate female empowerment — from “Insurgent” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” to “Cinderella,” and the upcoming “Trainwreck,” “Spy” and the final installment of “The Hunger Games.” That said, gender inequality both in front of and behind the camera is a hot-button issue in the global entertainment business.

As one of cinema’s most prominent stars, Blanchett, whose recent roles include the evil stepmother in “Cinderella, »
