Sarah Michelle Gellar Is In Trouble In Trailer For Veronika Decides To Die

19 December 2014 2:37 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Some five years after production and its subsequent release into the rest of the world, Veronika Decides To Die will finally land on U.S. shores. The Paolo Coehlo adaptation lensed back in 2008, and stars Sarah Michelle Gellar as a young woman – Veronika – who decides to end her life. Didn’t really have to spell that one out for you; it’s in the title. After swallowing a bunch of pills, she wakes up in a mental hospital and discovers she’s only got a few weeks left to live.

To reignite interest in the movie, Yahoo! has dropped a new trailer, and it definitely serves to point out the gap between production and release. Five years on the shelf and its cast, which also includes David Thewlis, Melissa Leo and Parenthood duo Erika Christensen and Jonathan Tucker, look significantly younger than they do now. That’s the passage of time for you. »

Screen Actors Guild Awards recognize ‘Birdman’, ‘Boyhood’, ‘Modern Family’

10 December 2014 1:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.

In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.

The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

SAG Nominations and Announcement of A New Feature

10 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.

Here's where a new running feature comes into play:

As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

How to be SAG Snubbed Even When You're Nominated

10 December 2014 7:06 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As is our annual tradition we like to peruse the credits of the SAG Ensemble nods to see who got left out despite their film's nomination. The Film Experience started this kind of analysis ten years ago when The Aviator had some really dumb exclusions and inclusions but lots of other sites now cover the injustice. We never get credit for starting this line of Norma Rae righteous anger but, that said, at least a lot of people have it now.

Did SAG think her face looked like she'd licked a homelessman's ass?

If you aren't familiar SAG uses a system whereby only actors with solitary title cards are official nominees for the Cast category. This means if you are famous in a bit part and have a good agent you are more likely to be an official nominee than the unknown who delivered a better performance in possibly a »

Interview: Rising Star Ross Anderson On ‘The Silent Storm’, ‘Unbroken’ and ‘Macbeth’

2 December 2014 10:08 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I first encountered newcomer Ross Anderson when The Silent Storm premiered at the London Film Festival earlier this year. I was so blown away by his performance (and the film!) that I knew then and there that people would be seeing much more of Anderson soon enough. And I wasn’t wrong.

He has been busy promoting Unbroken, which premiered in London recently. Angelina Jolie’s second directorial project is based on the life of Louis Zamperini and sees Anderson play a prisoner of war along with the film’s star Jack O’Connell, Garrett Hedlund, Luke Treadaway and many more incredible young actors. If that wasn’t enough, Anderson has also finished working with the likes of Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, David Thewlis and Paddy Considine on next year’s MacBeth which promises to be an incredibly dark take on the Shakespearean tale.

Miraculously, Anderson found the time to »

British Independent Film Awards Honor Full Range of Brit Pics

2 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With alternative modes of production reshaping the definition of “mainstream” well beyond the reach of studio cinema, it can be difficult for independent cinema to maintain its, well, independence.

Yet the British Independent Film Awards, now in their 17th year, still occupy a unique position in the U.K. awards calendar. Though their definition of independent cinema is hardly elitist, their nominees annually cover a large sector of British cinema not served by the BAFTAs — as the latter institution models itself ever more directly on the American Academy Awards, their spotlighting of homegrown product grows increasingly selective.

As a measure of the disconnect, the last three winners of Bifa’s top prize — “Tyrannosaur,” “Broken” and “Metro Manila” — scored just four BAFTA nominations among them, all in specialized or subsidiary categories. This year’s Bifa nominee list sees Yann Demange’s tough, low-grossing Troubles thriller “’71,” above, leading the count ahead of »

Justin Kurzel’s All-Star ‘Macbeth’ Adaptation Set To Be Even Darker

1 December 2014 4:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Snowtown director Justin Kurzel is turning his directorial hand to Shakespeare with next year’s new adaptation of MacBeth – and with an all-star cast including Marion Cotillard, Michael Fassbender, Sean Harris, David Thewlis and Paddy Considine, the film is set to be one of the big films of 2015.

We caught up with actor Ross Anderson (full interview coming soon!) who plays Rosse in the film and, after discussing his work in Unbroken and The Silent Storm, we were just able to get a little inside perspective on what we can expect from this MacBeth. Despite being cast alongside some of his childhood heroes, being part of this incredible cast hasn’t seemed to intimidate Anderson. Here’s what he had to say about just what makes this adaptation of the Shakespearean classic so different to what has come before:

“It’s presented in a very raw, human way. It’s pretty mind-blowing. »

Movie Review – The Theory Of Everything (2014)

1 December 2014 3:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Theory Of Everything, 2014.

Directed by James Marsh.

Starring Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Charlie Cox, Harry Lloyd, David Thewlis, Emily Watson and Christian McKay.

Synopsis:

A look at the relationship between Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Hawking (Jones), from their meeting at Cambridge until Hawking’s worldwide success.

There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there’s life, there is hope.

Biopics often work most when the film in question isn’t out to praise something to the high heavens or slander into the ground, but rather find a comfortable middle ground peppered with a touch of controversy. The Theory Of Everything could have been formulaic Oscar bait of the highest caliber, depicting the relationship of Stephen and Jane Hawking as a perfect love affair full of happiness with no strains along the way, »
