10 Crazy Full-Motion Video Game Performances By Well-Respected Actors

23 March 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Tim Curry has stolen my heart and he’s taking it into Communist space.

Full-Motion Video games were a mid- to late-1990s fad that were either semi-playable movies (where you shot at bad guys running on screen) or incorporated live-action cutscenes into otherwise animated games. Think Who Framed Roger Rabbit? but on your grandma’s PC. They’re usually all as silly as you’d imagine, either aimed at a younger audience delighted to watch some over-the-top fantasy or an older audience wowed by the possibilities of technology. It seems like the perfect home for character actors and infomercial escapees to camp it up with little career risk and some quick cash, right?

The weird thing is how many A-list actors — or at least people you’d never expect — appeared in these games. What’s even weirder is how crazy most of their roles were. Nobody’s a heartfelt dramatic lead, they »

TV Review: Sally Wainwright’s ‘To Walk Invisible’ on PBS Masterpiece

23 March 2017 6:20 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the flood of spring TV options, it would be easy for “To Walk Invisible” to get lost. It shouldn’t be. 

“To Walk Invisible” will no doubt be catnip to a few different subcategories of TV fans: Those who enjoy costume dramas, those who can’t get enough of films about creative types, those who simply appreciate well-made films with strong but subtly conveyed points of view, and those who enjoy the work of Sally Wainwright, the creator of “Happy Valley.”

For those who fall into all four groups, “To Walk Invisible,” which serves up an intense glimpse into the lives of the Brontë sisters, will fly by.

At the outset, it’s important to offer a warning that also applies to the great Netflix series “Happy Valley,” one of the finest offerings in all of television: The Northern accents of the characters take some getting used to. I’ve spent enough time in the U »

Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote begins production (yes, really)

12 March 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

17 years after the plug was pulled on his first attempt, Terry Gilliam has now commenced production on his passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, IndieWire is reporting.

As announced last year (when the project was delayed once again), Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Adam Driver is set to take on the lead role originally portrayed by Johnny Depp in the abandoned 2000 version. However, it seems that Gilliam regular Jonathan Pryce (Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) will now take on the role of Quixote, replacing Michael Palin (who himself replaced John Hurt, Robert Duvall and Jean Rochefort).

Joining Driver and Pryce in the cast are Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Joana Ribeiro (A Uma Hora Incerta), Eva Basteiro-Bertoli (Black Bread) and Rossy de Palma (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown).

Here’s the official synopsis for the project, »

Terry Gilliam Has Begun Shooting ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,’ For Real This Time

9 March 2017 3:48 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Terry Gilliam has finally begun filming on his very, very long-gestating passion project, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.”

A source close to the production confirmed to IndieWire that shooting began this week. There’s also the first photos from the set in the form of two Instagram posts, one from actress Rossy de Palma (who was to be part of the movie’s original production in 2000) and one from makeup artist Sylvie Imbert.

De Palma’s post, dated Feb. 27, is a photo of the cover of the film’s screenplay captioned, “FinallyHereWeAre.” Imbert’s post, dated March 6, shows her poring over a production grid for the film and is captioned, “Final touches last night.”

The original 2000 production was infamously delayed and waylaid by a variety of disasters, which were captured in the 2002 documentary “Man of La Mancha.” In October 2016, Gilliam was supposed to go into production with leads Adam Driver and Michael Palin, »

For some time now I have known that Jonathan Pryce had replaced Michael Palin in Terry Gilliam's so infamous it's infamously infamous, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

‘Feud’ Season 2 Dream Cast: 12 Actors We Need to Play Charles, Diana, the Queen and More

1 March 2017 6:44 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Princess Diana

As played by Emily Blunt?

We already know that Emily Blunt can totally kill the Princess Di look, thanks to a Halloween costume she wore in “The Five-Year Engagement.” But Blunt is also an incredibly nuanced actress who deserves a meaty lead role like this — and if the film world isn’t going to give it to her, then we happily welcome her to the world of television.

Prince Charles of Wales

As played by Ben Mendelsohn?

Just look at that side-by-side above. Just look at it. Originally from Australia, the Emmy winner is simply perfect. We did briefly consider Tom Hiddleston, but then we looked at Ben Mendelsohn again. Yeah.

Queen Elizabeth II

As played by Jessica Lange?

The grand dame of Murphy-dom may as well have a literal crown at this point. »

Taboo Season 1 Episode 7 Review: Revelations

21 February 2017 8:20 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

East India thinks they've won, but it's James Delaney who appears to have the upper hand, as always.

There were so many Huge reveals in Taboo Season 1 Episode 7 that I barely know where to start, so let's get right to it.

Helga was so convinced that Delaney killed poor Winter that she dimed out Delaney to East India, but of course she's wrong.

I don't think anyone out there really thought Delaney did the deed, but it's good to know that it was the evil East India responsible for it.

And it was heartbreaking to see Winter join the cast of dead spirits that haunt Delaney: poor guy. 

Lorna is really feeling Delaney now, but he seems resigned to the fact that he is damned, and doesn't want to take anyone else with him. 

Lorna: I know you didn't do it.

Delaney: And how would you know that? [grunt] I very well may have. »

Morfydd Clark joins Dan Stevens in 'The Man Who Invented Christmas'

1 February 2017 12:28 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen International Star Of Tomorrow Morfydd Clark has joined The Man Who Invented Christmas.

The project, based on Les Standiford’s book, imagines how Charles Dickens created his iconic story A Christmas Carol and stars Dan Stevens as the author.

Clark will play his wife and joins Christopher Plummer (as Scrooge) and Jonathan Pryce (as Dickens’ father) in the cast.

Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day) directs from a script by Susan Coyne (Mozart In The Jungle).

The story begins in October 1843 when Charles Dickens was broke. Despite early success, his last three books had failed. Rejected by his publishers, he sets out to write and self-publish a book which he hopes will keep his family afloat. After six fever-pitched weeks, he created A Christmas Carol.

Clark recently appeared in Love And Friendship and Pride And Prejudice And Zombies. She also played Cordelia opposite Glenda Jackson in the »

Taboo Season 1 Episode 4 Review: League of the Damned

31 January 2017 8:25 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The gauntlet has been thrown down: will Delaney accept? What the hell do you think? 

In the action packed Taboo Season 1 Episode 4, the big challenge of a duel from that uber dick Thorne was the crescendo, but we'll have to wait a week to see if Delaney takes the bait.

I challenge James Delaney to a duel. At dawn. To the death. Do you accept? Do You Accept?

Thorne Permalink: I challenge James Delaney to a duel. At dawn. To the death. Do you accept? Do You Accept? Added: January 29, 2017

I expect he will, and we will have a magnificently shot duel scene at dawn, in a fog shrouded field, in beautiful slow motion. But this isn't a lock by any means.

Given how the Americans have kindly offered to waste Thorne, Delaney might just take them up on it.

Just think about that for a minute. If the Americans do the deed, »
