Hollywood Heads to Broadway

16 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.

The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ To Close Rio Festival

6 September 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stephen Daldry’s Universal-distribbed “Trash,” his awaited venture into Brazilian filmmaking and teen-thriller territory, will close the 2014 Rio de Janeiro Festival on Oct. 7.

Trash” stars Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Brazil’s Wagner Moura (“Elite Troop”) plus actor-director Selton Mello (“The Clown”).

The gala screening will mark “Trash’s” world premiere, a matter of import for Oscar pundits given Daldry’s Academy Award track record: “Billy Elliot,” “The Hours” and “The Reader” all snagged Best Director noms, “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” made the Best Picture cut.

Written by Richard Curtis and Felipe Braga, “Trash” also reps Daldry’s first teen adventure thriller, and a pioneering Brazil, U.K. co-production which melds top echelon talent from Brazil and the U.K. while staking out Brazil as its home market.

An adaptation of Brit Andy Mulligan’s novel, and set on a massive landfill outside Rio, “Trash” is produced by London’s »

Telluride kicks off with a tribute to a masterpiece

30 August 2014 1:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Telluride — While press and patrons were hustling into gondolas and over to the Chuck Jones Cinema for the World Premiere of Jean-Marc Vallée's "Wild," the 41st annual Telluride Film Festival was kicking off with a bang at an over-stuffed Werner Herzog Theater for the lead program of this year's schedule: a tribute to Francis Ford Coppola's "Apocalypse Now." The ticket was so hot that well over a hundred pass holders were turned away at the door. In introducing a new Dcp of the original theatrical cut of the film (supervised for Coppola himself), Telluride co-founder Tom Luddy said it was noteworthy the event was unfolding at the Herzog, as "Apocalypse Now" holds a fair share of homages to Herzog's "Aguirre the Wrath of God," which screened at the fest last year to dedicate the new venue.

The FIFA World Cup promoted a colourful and spirited Brazil, but Trash introduces us to the darker side of life in the Rio slums, but this latest trailer provides a heart-racing and exhilarating introduction to Stephen Daldry’s latest project.

Trash stars Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen & Wagner Moura. It’s directed by Stephen Daldry, written by Richard Curtis and opens in UK cinemas on 30th January 2015.

'Trash' International Trailer Starring Rooney Mara

27 August 2014 5:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Critically-acclaimed director Stephen Daldry (The Hours, The Reader) returns to the big screen with Trash. Universal Pictures UK has released an international trailer for this adaptation of Andy Mulligan's novel, which follows a group of Brazilian boys who find something in a trash heap that could change their entire country.

Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura and Selton Mello star in this upcoming drama, which doesn't have a domestic release date set at this time.

Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping on it. Then one unlucky-lucky day, the world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It's a bag of clues. It's a bag of hope. It's a bag that will change everything.

New Trailer For Trash Looks Like A Brazilian Slumdog Millionaire

27 August 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If your film is named Trash, it better be pretty great, or it will instantly be fodder for reviewers upon release. The good news is that Stephen Daldry’s latest effort, starring Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and three newcomers who could have a bright future in Hollywood, looks terrific, a mix of gritty slum story and inspirational drama. In other words, this could be the new Slumdog Millionaire and it already comes from a director who has danced with Oscar nominations before.

Trash could also easily be up for foreign language film at this year’s Academy Awards, since 80 percent of it is in Portuguese (the rest is in English). The film is based off a best-selling novel by Andy Mulligan, which follows three kids living in a Rio slum who find a wallet filled with money and valuables connecting to officials in power.

New International Trash Trailer Features Rooney Mara Opposite Three Young Newcomers

27 August 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

That international trailer for Stephen Daldry’s Trash that dropped just about a month ago did offer up a solid preview of the film’s style and tone, but it’s much nicer when you can actually understand the dialogue.  This latest promo is in English and has subtitles when it’s not, offering up a much clearer picture of the trouble that Rato (Gabriel Weinstein), Gardo (Eduardo Luis) and Raphael (Rickson Tevez) get themselves into after finding a bag in the dump. The details on why what’s inside the bag could change the nation aren’t particularly clear, but the trio is likable and engaging enough to inspire you to believe in and get behind what they’re fighting for.  Hit the jump to check out the new Trash trailer for yourself.  The film also stars Martin Sheen, Rooney Mara, Wagner Moura and Selton Mello, and is due »

New International Trailer for Stephen Daldry's 'Trash', UK Release Date Set for January 2015

27 August 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

On the heels of the new picture from Serena we have a new trailer for another film that would seem like a solid Oscar contender and yet we've heard nothing about a stateside release. Set to premiere at the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival at the end of September, followed by an October 9 release in Brazil, we have a new trailer for Stephen Daldry's Trash. Trash features Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Wagner Moura in the middle of a story following three boys (Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein) who scrape a living by picking through trash. One day they find a leather bag, the contents of which plunge them into a terrifying adventure, pitting their wits against corruption and authority to right a wrong. This is the second trailer we've seen for the film, but this one at least has subtitles as we now have an »

Trailer for Trash

27 August 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Coming from director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Reader), I have a strong feeling Trash is going to feature heavily when the upcoming Oscar race goes into full swing. Adapted from Andy Mulligan's novel of the same name by Richard Curtis (Love Actually), the movie follows three boys (Rickson Tevez, Luis Eduardo, and Gabriel Weinstein) who survive in the slums of Rio picking through trash. When they find a wallet sought after by some very bad man, they are propelled on the adventure of their young lives, uncovering a dangerous conspiracy along the way. Also starring Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara, Trash does show the promise of a compelling, and the young actors at the heart of the story will no doubt tug at audiences heart strings. Released: 30th January 2015 (Irl/U.K.)/ ? (U.S.) »

Rooney Mara helps start a revolution in 'Trash' trailer

27 August 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Though Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen are the big names in Stephen Daldry’s Trash, a new trailer highlights Eduardo Luis, Gabriel Weinstein, and Rickson Tevez. All three are making their screen debuts in the film, playing the three boys who are led on an adventure after finding important items in the landfill where they work.

Though Andy Mulligan’s novel on which the movie was based wasn’t set in a particular location, Daldry (whose other tale of youth, Billy Elliot, is being touted in the trailer) filmed Trash in Rio, and, per Variety, the movie is 80 percent in Portuguese and 20 percent in English. »

“It’s a country I feel in love with, they believe in change…and they believe in their country,” Stephen Daldry told Screen Daily about Brazil, the setting of his upcoming "Trash." And certainly, the filmmaker rolled up his sleeves and dove right in, casting three kids —Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein— who had never been on camera before to star in his film alongside Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Wagner Moura.  A new international trailer has arrived for the picture, indicating a sun-baked, uplifting, and energetic drama. Penned by Richard Curtis ("War Horse," "Love Actually"), and based on the novel by Andy Mulligan, the story follows two boys living in the slums who stumble across a wallet full of cash while trash-picking in the local dump. With a reward out for its return, the pair team up with a friend to discover why the wallet is so important, »

First Trailer For Trash Arrives Online

Would it be reductive to call Stephen Daldry's Trash a sort of Slumdog Brazil-ionaire? Going by this trailer, we can expect some of the same atmosphere thanks to the energetic young leads here, the impossible odds and a note of optimism that runs throughout despite the threats of violence. Take a look below and see what you think. brightcove.createExperiences();The film centres on three young friends, Raphael (Rickson Teves), Gardo (Eduardo Luis) and Rato (Gabriel Weinstein), who find a wallet in the dump where they pick through rubbish all day. Its contents threaten to expose a huge conspiracy, putting the trio in the firing line of some huge and potentially deadly forces.
