If niche movies are your forte, then you’re in for a treat with Alan Rickman’s second directorial effort, A Little Chaos. At a glance it’s a period piece about gardening. Delve a little deeper and it possesses all of the pre-requisites for a successful time-gone-by movie: a corseted Kate Winslet.
As feisty landscape designer, Sabine, Winslet is enlisted to craft a new garden for King Louis Xiv.s new palace at Versailles. At first she ruffles the feathers of the court’s pre-existing landscaper, André Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts), who demands she conjure up stuffy, pedestrian designs. Naturally their initial locked horns turn to locked lips as their workplace relationship evolves into a romantic entanglement.

“Insurgent” is heading for a $57 million opening weekend, according to industry tracking.
If that number holds, the debut will be bigger than that of “Divergent,” the first film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s bestselling series of novels. That initial chapter in the futuristic franchise kicked off to $54.6 million last March, going on the make $150.9 million domestically and $288.7 million worldwide.
With nearly a month to go before “Insurgent” premieres on March 20, that opening figure could improve. It’s good news for Lionsgate, the studio behind the films, because the “Divergent” series is seen as a key part of its future given that this year brings the final installment in its lucrative “Hunger Games” series.
It’s possible that the stronger tracking is partially attributable to star Shailene Woodley’s higher profile after the success of “The Fault in Our Stars.” The romantic drama was a hit because it attracted many of »

Winslet plays Madame Sabine De Barra, an unlikely candidate for landscape architect of the still‐to-be-completed Palace of Versailles. She has little time for the classical, ordered designs of the man who hires her, the famous architect Le Nôtre (Schoenaerts). However, as she works… »

Pre-credit sequence. The teams are arriving in trucks, practically "Wages of Fear" style. Are they trying to say that this season's contestants are combustible? They're TNT, dyno-mite? The 18 castaways have been divided semi-arbitrarily into three tribes based on occupation and outlook on life, whatever that means. Up first? The White Collar tribe. "They're used to being in charge," Jeff Probst says. So admits she might be the Devil, says that she's demanding and makes her underlings cry. Max, who everybody I follow on Twitter knows from his "Survivor" teaching days, says that he's willing to use people to succeed. Carolyn compares this to her corporate experiences. The Blue Collar tribe is next. "They're used to hard work and physical labor," Probst says condescendingly. He resists calling them "salt of the earth" and "just folks." Mike is used to being covered in oil and mud and wants to get his hands filthy. »

Earlier this month, the final trailer arrived for dystopian young adult sequel Insurgent. Except, it wasn’t the last one, because Summit has now dropped another minute-long preview ahead of the film’s March 20th release. As before, the flick stars Shailene Woodley as resilient teen Tris, who is now on the run with the hunky Four (Theo James). Now wanted fugitives, the pair will once more try to escape the clutches of Kate Winslet’s tyrannical leader, Jeanine.
Following original director Neil Burger’s exit, this second chapter in The Divergent Series is helmed by R.I.P.D.‘s Robert Schwentke. A direct follow-on from the first outing, Insurgent will trace Tris and Four as they are hunted down by those pesky Erudite elite. What’s paramount in this final teaser is that Tris’ newly-cropped haircut warrants its own special introduction, and that there will undoubtedly be more action, romance and brilliantly-bad one-liners from Winslet. »

Talcy of wig and heaving of bosom, A Little Chaos promises to dust our Aprils with a liberal helping of period splendour. Alan Rickman’s second directorial effort – the first was The Winter Guest back in 1997 – is set in and around the uncompleted Palace of Versailles during the reign of Louis Xiv. You can immerse yourself in all its detailing and courtly ways with this new trailer for the film. Lending her heavyweight thespian gifts is Kate Winslet as Madame Sabine De Barra. She’s in contention to become landscape architect of the new palace but finds herself butting heads with her employer, preeminent architect Le Nôtre (Matthias Schoenaerts), whose favour she risks shedding as she takes against his love of convention. Privet hedges are out, mate. It’s all about the manicured rose bush. “The film is about what it is to be a woman who cannot have a »
The final Insurgent trailer has hit the web. Unlike all our previous looks, it doesn't focus on the psychedelic mind trip this film will probably end up being. Instead we get our best look yet at the events to come in the highly anticipated sequel. At the end of Divergent, we saw Tris (Shailene Woodley) on the run with Four (Theo James), her brother (Ansel Elgort) and that douchebag of a Dauntless warrior Peter (Miles Teller). They discovered Jeanine’s (Kate Winslet) and Erudite’s plans to overthrow the other factions and rule the government of this futuristic society. After watching her mother and father die at the hands of these tyrants, Tris fled with her companions and are now in hiding. As the Insurgent trailer shows us, they seek refuge in Amity, the faction marked by their peaceful demeanor and kindness towards others. Its leader, »

Lionsgate is still desperate to find a replacement for cash cow Katniss Everdeen after her final adventure later this year, and so it continues to push its best candidate forward with the final trailer for the upcoming "The Divergent Series: Insurgent".
Shailene Woodley and Theo James return as the duo who threaten to bring down the corrupt and rigid caste system run by Kate Winslet's Jeanine. With the first film earning a very healthy $288 million worldwide, it's far from a "Hunger Games"-style success story but it is formidable in its own right.
Will the sequel perform better? We'll find out when the movie hits cinemas on March 20th.
