What I Watched: From 'The Phantom of the Opera' to 'Gosford Park'

22 September 2008 12:59 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The idea for this article came out of how many films I have been watching lately in an effort to up my film IQ. I am not watching these films to be any kind of film historian, but to just have an overall knowledge of movies. It is also a nice way to make up for how many bad films I have to watch. I will still continue to do my Cinematic Revival editorials as well as hopefully bring you more of these recap pieces. My larger goal is to begin writing full reviews for all of these films when I don't write up the longer Cinematic Revival essays to improve on my writing as well as bolster my list of written reviews. That said, here is a look at what I watched at home last week and if you have any films to recommend that you watched recently (it »

Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany Debate 'Creation'

5 September 2008 11:40 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Filed under: Drama, Independent, Casting, Deals, Celebrities and Controversy, Scripts, Newsstand, Religious

Acting couple Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly must have decided that life would be too calm after November 2008 -- so they have signed to play Charles and Emma Darwin in Creation. Yes, the Darwins. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will be directed by Jon Amiel, from a script penned by John Collee, and based on Randal Keynes' book Annie's Box. (Keynes is Darwin's great-great grandson.) The film will portray Charles Darwin as a man torn between his love for his deeply religious wife, and his growing belief in a world where God has no place.

I hope that they explore Darwin's personal struggles and belief more deeply than the plot description suggests. To sell him as an athiest smacks of wanting to stir up controversy -- Darwin always called himself an agonostic, and his rejection of »

Bettany and Connelly to star in Creation

5 September 2008 10:49 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

* Paul Bettany is to star alongside his real-life-movie-wife Jennifer Connelly in a new movie entitled Creation, which is to be directed by Jon Amiel.

The flick, according to the trade newspaper Variety, will see the duo play Charles and Emma Darwin. It is described as part ghost story, part psychological thriller and part love story. It will follow Darwin as a young man, struggling to cope with the loss of a child.

A true story, Creation, is based on the book "Annie's Box," which is written by Darwin's great-great-grandson Randal Keynes.

Jeremy Northam, Benedict Cumberbatch and Toby Jones have also been cast in the film, which is co-financed by BBC Films and the U.K. Film Council.

Shooting on the period piece begins September 28th, and will take in locations like the Darwins' home, Down House, in what was then the Kent village of Bromley. Bromley is now part of London. »

Real-life couple Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly are to play man and wife on the big screen in a Charles Darwin biopic.

Bettany will play Darwin and Connelly will take on the role of the English naturalist's wife Emma in director Jon Amiel's Creation.

The movie, based on a book written by Darwin's great-great-grandson Randal Keynes, chronicles the scholar's early years, as he struggles to cope with the loss of a child.

Jeremy Northam and Atonement star Benedict Cumberbatch have also signed up for the project, which will be partly filmed on location at Down House in Kent, England, where the Darwins actually lived, according to Daily Variety.

The film's release will coincide with the bicentenary of Darwin's birth in 2009.

Husband and wife Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly have been cast as a married couple in an upcoming film titled Creation (previously known as Origin).

This biopic is being directed by Jon Amiel, of Entrapment and The Core, and has script penned by John Collee, of Master and Commander and Happy Feet.

Bettany, Connelly to star in Darwin pic

4 September 2008 11:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

London -- Real-life husband and wife Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly have signed on to play a married couple in "Creation," Jon Amiel's project about the life of Charles Darwin.

Bettany will play the British father of evolutionary theory, and Connelly will play his wife, Emma, in the big-screen take on the life of the controversial "On the Origin of Species" author.

"John Collee's compelling script tells the remarkable story behind Darwin's revolutionary theory and the foundation of a book that changed the world," said Oscar-winning producer Jeremy Thomas, the force behind the project. "We think of Darwin as an old man with a gray beard. The reality of our story is very different."

Amiel's film portrays Darwin as a man torn between his love for his deeply religious wife and his own growing belief in a world where God has no place. The scientist finds himself caught »

Final Tiff 08 titles announced

19 August 2008 1:29 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

For a total of 312 films from 64 different countries. Wow, I wish I could go. Of the remaining announcements in 3 different sections, the most intriguing would have to be Vincent Cassel playing legendary French gangster Jacques Mesrine in Public Enemy No. 1. It's listed as a "work-in-progress" so I guess that means what will be screened is not the final cut. Another I'm looking forward to is The Lucky Ones which stars one of my favorites, Tim Robbins. It's about some returning soldiers who go on a road trip across America. Check out the full list following.

Real To Reel

Paris, Not France Adria Petty, USA

World Premiere

Polls show that in certain demographics, more people identify the name Paris with "Hilton" than with "France." Gaining intimate access to the glamorous and chaotic day-to-day life of one of the world's biggest icons, director Adria Petty explores the businesswoman and the human »

Toronto -- U.S. directors Rod Lurie, Neil Burger, Jodie Markell and Gavin O'Connor were among those snaring world premieres Tuesday as the Toronto International Film Festival finalized its lineup.

Lurie will bow his political thriller "Nothing But the Truth," a Yari Film Group title that stars Kate Beckinsale as a Washington reporter put behind bars for revealing the name of a covert CIA agent.

O'Connor will bring Warner Bros.' "Pride and Glory," a cop family drama that stars Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Jon Voight, while Burger will debut Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions' Rachel McAdams/Tim Robbins starrer "The Lucky Ones," about a road trip by returning U.S. soldiers.

Markell's "The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond" is based on a rediscovered Tennessee Williams screenplay and stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Evans and Ann-Margret.

As Toronto completed its lineup for its Sept. 4-13 run, it unveiled 312 films from 64 countries. These include 249 features, most of which are world, international or North American premieres, and 61 of which are directorial debuts.

Other new Roy Thomson slots include German filmmaker Caroline Link's "A Year in Winter"; Toa Fraser's "Dean Spanley," toplined by Peter O'Toole, Jeremy Northam and Sam Neill; Jerry Zaks' "Who Do You Love," a biopic about famed record producer Leonard Chess; and Indian director Anees Bazmee's romantic action comedy "Singh Is Kinng."

Also on tap is a North American premiere for Ethan Coen and Joel Coen's Venice opener "Burn After Reading," the CIA comedy that stars George Clooney, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich and Brad Pitt.

Three French films will receive gala treatment in Toronto: French director Anna Fontaine's "La Fille de Monaco," Jean-Francois Richet's "Public Enemy No. One" and Daniel Burman's "Empty Nest." In all, France will be represented by 30 movies.

Toronto also has booked "New York, I Love You," a compilation of short films from 12 directors including Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Allen Hughes, Shekhar Kapur, Mira Nair and Brett Ratner.

Historical cage match: 'The Tudors' vs. Jane Austen

27 March 2008 10:16 PM, PDT | The Watcher | See recent The Watcher news »

Not every historical drama has to be as deep and serious as HBO’s “John Adams,” which is admirable and engaging but not exactly escapist viewing.

Sometimes you  just want to escape into the world of frock coats and palaces and corsets, and there’s a great tradition of costume dramas that seek to entertain more than they educate.

“Sense and Sensibility,” a two-part Pbs remake of the classic Jane Austen  novel (9 p.m. Sunday, Wttw-Ch. 11 ) does a credible job of telling the tale of the Dashwood sisters, despite some unnecessary melodramatic flourishes and an inconsistent tone. Yet by focusing on the characters within those Regency costumes, it manages to find the emotional truths that have kept Austen’s books in print for 200 years.

The Tudors,” which returns for its second season Sunday (8 p.m., Showtime),  gets the pomp-and-circumstance part right, but is consistently disappointing in several other areas. Chief »

Sheen + Northam Fought Over Beckinsale

14 March 2008 5:34 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Fists flew on the set of period film The Golden Bowl when The Queen star Michael Sheen and fellow Brit Jeremy Northam fell out over then-new mum Kate Beckinsale.

Protective Sheen, the father of Beckinsale's daughter Lily, had dropped by the set of the 2000 film to visit his then-girlfriend and was taken aback when Northam started shouting at her.

Sheen didn't hold back and stepped up to defend upset Beckinsale - by thumping Northam.

Beckinsale recalls, "I was so mortified. I thought, 'Now Michael's going to jail, and I'm going to have to bake that cake and put the file in it.'"

But the actress admits the warring men quickly patched up their differences.

She adds, "It all became very sort of British and gentlemanly between those two, with handshaking all round." »
