London Film Festival: Women In Film to Be Key Discussion Issue

5 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The issue of diversity in film is set to be a key theme of this year’s BFI London Film Festival (Lff). Both Festival Director Clare Stewart and BFI Chief Executive Amanda Nevill were quick to highlight the issue at the launch for the Lff program on Tuesday morning (Sep. 1).

“The natural quintessence of the festival lies in its diversity,” said Nevill, referring to the ‘Three Ticks’ guidelines for receiving Lottery funding, designed to ensure film productions represent UK diversity, that the BFI introduced last December.

“UK film is creatively strong but we are deluding ourselves if we believe we can continue without finding a new generation of talented people from every corner of the UK and every background,” continued Nevill. “The three ticks guidelines are not just about diversity but also about creating opportunity and securing the economic future of the UK film industry. We need to invent »

Sorry Mr Obama, but presidents shouldn’t behave like reality TV stars | Rupert Myers

Macho posturing from Vladimir Putin I can deal with, but Obama drinking his own urine with Bear Grylls? Say it ain’t so

An award-winning golf aficionado and micro-brewer is to appear on reality television as part of a pre-retirement publicity tour. A trip to Alaska, accompanied by Bear Grylls, wouldn’t be the stuff of international news in normal circumstances, but this particular star also happens to be the leader of the free world.

The Nobel peace prize winner responsible for the launch of the largest number of cruise missiles in the award’s history, Barack Obama, will go where Kate Winslet and Zac Efron have gone before, and venture into the wild for entertainment TV. There is already a petition calling on the president to drink his own urine on the show. Viewers will be treated to the undignified sight of a lame duck waddling on ice.

President Obama to Appear on NBC’s ‘Running Wild with Bear Grylls’

31 August 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The campaign trails probably never got as rough as this.

President Barack Obama will trek through the Alaskan wilderness with survival expert Bear Grylls for a special edition of NBC’s “Running Wild with Bear Grylls,” it was announced Monday by NBC and producer Electus.

The episode, which will be taped and air later this year, is meant to call attention to the effects of climate change on that area.

Grylls recently shared a tweet from Obama that quoted from one of the Commander in Chief’s weekly addresses that said, “As long as I’m president, America will lead the world to meet the threat of climate change.”

The second season of “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” is currently airing and has paired the survivalist with Kate Winslet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and other famous names determined to test their physical limits. The season finale, which airs Sept. 7, will feature »

Michael Fassbender Is A Pensive Genius In New Steve Jobs Poster

28 August 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Aside from supporting roles in Band of Brothers and evocative British realism drama Fish Tank, you’d be forgiven for not knowing who Michael Fassbender was prior to 2008. Less than a decade later, though, the German–Irish star has shouldered his way into Hollywood’s pantheon, and his stature will only continue to grow over the next two to three years thanks to roles in Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth – and indeed Assassin’s Creed – along with Ridley Scott’s sci-fi sequel, Prometheus 2.

Before all of that, however, Fassbender’s latest and much-talked about role will be playing the titular, flawed visionary for Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic, and only today Universal has released a pensive new poster for the Oscar-tipped drama. It’s a beautifully clean, minimalist side-portrait of the lead character, which trumpets the film’s ensemble cast as much as it casts its protagonist in isolation. »

Kate Winslet Says ‘Steve Jobs’ Is Really “About All of Us”; See a New Poster

Just because Steve Jobs is called Steve Jobs, doesn’t mean it’s just about Steve Jobs. In fact, star Kate Winslet says, it’s “almost not about Steve Jobs at all.” Because really, “The film is about all of us.” She’s speaking symbolically, of course, but it does sound like the film has much more on its mind than just the man in […]

Kate Winslet on Going After the Parts You Want

27 August 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Kate Winslet’s casting in the upcoming “Steve Jobs” biopic opposite Michael Fassbender is proof that sometimes an actor can benefit from playing against their “type.” As Joanna Hoffman, a “feisty immigrant,” Winslet had to convince producer Scott Rudin she was right for the part. “I could feel that the powers that be weren’t overly intrigued by the idea of me playing this role, maybe because physically, facially, I didn’t look like a Polish-Armenian immigrant,” she told Vulture. “But sometimes you have to convince people....” Written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle (“Slumdog Millionaire”), “Steve Jobs” is set to drop Oct. 9.

Watch: First U.S. Trailer For Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ Starring Rooney Mara, Wagner Moura & Martin Sheen

26 August 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Stephen Daldry occupies a rarefied position. He is one of the few filmmakers to have been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director four times in a row and for his first four films: “Billy Elliott,” “The Hours,” “The Reader” and “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” (three of the four were also nominated for Best Picture). Perhaps after years of Oscar-bait material —he has directed six actors in Oscar-nominated performances, namely Julie Walters, Nicole Kidman, Ed Harris, Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet, and Max von Sydow— Daldry has switched gears for “Trash” a movie set in the slums of Rio with big stars cast in supporting roles.

How Kate Winslet Won a Role in Steve Jobs and Managed All That Sorkin Dialogue

26 August 2015 5:05 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Steve Jobs, Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle’s selective biopic, ran a painfully public gauntlet to production, riddled with false starts, jettisoned stars, and even a supporting role in the Sony-hack saga. Among its most interesting and salutary turns was Kate Winslet’s 11th-hour casting as Joanna Hoffman, the brunette Eastern European–born marketing guru who speaks truth to Jobs’s charismatic power. After lobbying producer Scott Rudin with an emailed photo of herself in a wig, Winslet disappeared into Hoffman, opposite Michael Fassbender’s Jobs, over the course of a whirlwind series of long, intricate scenes. She regaled us with the backstory and more during preparations for another chaotic production, a dinner party at home in England.Ned Rocknroll, Winslet’s husband: Hello. Who am I talking to? New York Magazine. Ned: She’s just pouring herself a glass of wine. (To Winslet) Am I not allowed to tell »

DVD Review: 'A Little Chaos'

25 August 2015 12:45 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Alan Rickman's second stint as director yields mixed results wrapped up in a stylish French bow, A Little Chaos (2014). It's a beautiful effort but completely sophomoric in all its trappings. There is something inherently off-kilter while watching, the feeling that - despite an intriguing cast, gorgeous sets and an appropriately saccharine and somewhat devious plot - there's something quite hollow here. Set within the royal strata of the court of Louis Xiv (Rickman), the story follows Sabine de Barra (Kate Winslet), a widowed landscape architect who finds a renewed sense of purpose when she is hired to construct a new feature for the king's garden at Versailles.
