Listen Up Philip Trailer Starring Jason Schwartzman

17 January 2014 3:57 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the Sundance Film Festival currently in full swing, director Alex Ross Perry released the first trailer for his drama Listen Up Philip on his YouTube page. Jason Schwartzman stars as the title character, an angry novelist who gets away from it all when his mentor (Jonathan Pryce) offers the use of his summer home. Elisabeth Moss, Jess Weixler and Kate Lyn Sheil co-star in this drama, which makes its world premiere January 20 at Sundance.

Anger rages in Philip (Jason Schwartzman) as he awaits the publication of his sure-to-succeed second novel. He feels pushed out of his adopted home city by the constant crowds and noise, a deteriorating relationship with his photographer girlfriend Ashley (Elisabeth Moss), and his own indifference to promoting the novel. When Philip's idol Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce) offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, he finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favorite subject - himself. »

Sundance 2014 is now under way, and we’ve already got our first trailer – hurrah!

Everyone thinks Jason Schwartzman is a dick in this teaser for Listen Up Philip

17 January 2014 9:29 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Jason Schwartzman is very good at playing unlikeable characters. Maybe it was his experience working with Wes Anderson on Rushmore at a young age or maybe it is something that comes naturally to him, but it looks like he will put that talent on full display in his latest film, Listen Up Philip, which premieres at Sundance this week. Co-starring Elizabeth Moss, Jonathan Pryce, Krysten Ritter, Josephine de La Baume, Jess Weixler, Dree Hemingway, Keith Poulson, Kate Lyn Sheil, and Eric »

Teaser Trailer for Sundance Entry Listen Up, Philip Starring Jason Schwartzman and Elisabeth Moss

17 January 2014 8:39 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Color Wheel director Alex Ross Perry’s new film Listen Up, Philip will make its debut in a few days at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, but in anticipation of the film’s premiere, a teaser trailer has been released online for all to see.  The pic stars Jason Schwartzman as a self-obsessed author awaiting the publication of his “sure-to-succeed” second novel.  Facing a deteriorating relationship with his girlfriend (Elisabeth Moss), uncomfortableness at his home, and an indifference to promoting his novel, Philip is offered the chance to retreat to the summer home of his idol, played by Jonathan Pryce.  This teaser is certainly an odd watch, as we see a barrage of characters addressing the title character Philip by talking to the camera head-on. Hit the jump to watch the teaser trailer.  The film also stars Krysten Ritter, Josephine de La Baume, Jess Weixler, Dree Hemingway, Keith Poulson, and Eric Bogiosan. »

Watch: Sundance Teaser For 'Listen Up Philip' Starring Jason Schwartzman & Elisabeth Moss

17 January 2014 7:51 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“The character is so specific and such a curmudgeon and so angry. But when I heard that Jason [Schwartzman] wanted to do it, it really clarified things for me,” said Elisabeth Moss told EW about deciding to take a role in "Listen Up Philip." “Jason has this knack for playing characters who are maybe not necessarily that likable. He doesn’t try to make them likable, but there’s something about the way he is that makes you just want to watch him. You’re interested in what his character’s doing even if he’s being an asshole.” It seems there are a lot of people invested in Philip, with a pretty nifty teaser landing today for the latest from "The Color Wheel" director Alex Ross Perry, premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. Featuring a pretty great supporting cast including Krysten Ritter, Jonathan Pryce, Jess Weixler, Dree Hemingway and Eric Bogosian, »

Last year, we covered the Sundance premieres of “Before Midnight,” “Upstream Color,” “The Way Way Back,” “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints,” “We Are What We Are,” and many more. And Chicago Critics Film Festival hits “Stories We Tell,” “The Spectacular Now,” and “The Kings of Summer” premiered in Park City in 2013.

There are dozens of films that have piqued our interest and that we’ll be covering here in daily diaries starting on Friday but here are ten, alphabetically, that already have people buzzing.

Sundance 2014: Jason Schwartzman channels a jerk in 'Listen Up Philip' -- Exclusive Photos

13 January 2014 6:11 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Philip is not the most likable guy. In the first few seconds of director Alex Ross Perry’s film, Listen Up Philip (premiering at Sundance on Jan. 20), we see Philip (Jason Schwartzman) rushing down a New York street as a narrator (Eric Bogosian) explains that he’s ”characteristically not in a hurry, but perpetually enraged by slow foot traffic before him.”

It’s the perfect intro to the character that you’re about to spend the next 108 minutes with as the embittered, narcissistic writer navigates his life, the stresses behind the release of his second novel, and his crumbling relationship. »

King Lear: a YouTube roundup

13 January 2014 5:20 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This week Simon Russell Beale takes on the royal role in a revival by Sam Mendes at the National Theatre. Here's a look back at Lear on film

Reading on a mobile? Click here to view

One of the earliest film versions of King Lear (retitled Re Lear) was made in Italy in 1910 with Ermete Novelli as King Lear. What takes over three hours on stage was packed into a dense 16 minutes of action that remains haunting many decades on.

Reading on a mobile? Click here to view

Almost 80 years before the 1997 movie A Thousand Acres based on Jane Smiley's novel, which transposed the play to contemporary Iowa, French director Louis Feuillade was doing something similar in Le Roi Lear Au Village, a 1911 adaptation in which Lear becomes a blind French farmer who foolishly gives over his land to his two heartless daughters. Alas, I couldn't find any footage online. »

Daily Mail deduces a case of left-wing bias in BBC's final Sherlock episode

13 January 2014 5:01 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Boris Johnson: Sherlock's mockery of me is 'perfectly legitimate'

Sherlock closes case with almost 8.8 million viewers

The Daily Mail perceives a sinister political agenda in the series finale of BBC's Sherlock Holmes. Its page 7 lead story today is headlined "Sherlock's new foe and more evidence of Left-wing bias."

The paper points out that Holmes's new enemy is a foreign newspaper baron, and unashamed capitalist, called Charles Augustus Magnussen, who uncovers secrets about the great and the good which he uses to blackmail them.

According to the Mail's report, this "not-so-subtle depiction of the evil press baron was created by the series' co-writer, Steven Moffat, who has previously ranted against right-wing media and declared his dislike of the Conservatives."

It points to an interview Moffat gave to The Guardian before the last general election in March 2010, in which he said: "I hope the Tories don't win."

William Nicholson: 'The novelist who thinks that "story" is a dirty word had better be a genius'

10 January 2014 9:20 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The author and screenwriter talks to Nicholas Wroe about emotional openness, storytelling and how Hollywood critiques help you focus as a novelist

'If you are a screenwriter and you write a novel, then you are still a screenwriter," explains William Nicholson. "With two novels you become a screenwriter who writes novels, and with three you are a novelist and screenwriter. But write seven or eight novels …? At the moment the people in my different worlds don't have much idea of the other things I do. The film world especially has no clue that I've written children's books, adult novels and plays. What I'd really like is to be up for a film award and literary award in the same year. That would confuse them."

A bold ambition, and looking at Nicholson's track record, not an entirely fanciful one. As a screenwriter he has been Oscar-nominated for adapting his own play about Cs Lewis, »
