Actors who have made the switch from England to Hollywood

14 March 2017 6:11 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

British actors have been creeping their way into Hollywood ever since the early days of Hollywood. Cary Grant, Charlie Chaplin, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor all had British roots, and yet they are still known as some of the greatest Hollywood actors of all time. So, why not celebrate the Brits that made their home in Hollywood? Hollywood should be a place of diversity and British actors have helped to make Hollywood what it is today. Actors from all over the world are making their way to Hollywood to find success and when you can find international freight forwarding at such great prices, why shouldn’t they? So, if you haven’t forgotten where they came from, here is a short list of the English actors making it big in Hollywood:

There’s Only One Melanie Lynskey, But These 5 Stories Will Make You Wish There Were More

12 March 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“I thought I was going to get fired.”

In a perfect world, such a thought would never cross Melanie Lynskey’s mind, for the talented actress would literally never be in danger of getting canned. She could throw fits next to crafty, punch a grip in the face, or burn down the sets, and we’d still forgive her because… Well, because Melanie Lynskey would never do any of that. She’s Melanie Lynskey.

But the actor you fell in love with during “Beautiful Creatures,” “Togetherness,” or the 2017 Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning film “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” did have the thought cross her mind for the strangest of reasons: Tom McCarthy found out she was a recurring cast member on “Two and a Half Men.”

Classic 90s Movies Turning 20 in 2017

11 March 2017 8:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Time has a way of rolling on doesn't it? The 1990s were a great hodge-podge of 1980s leftovers and a the future all rolled into one. So it stands to reason that some of the movies we got from that time, even though they were completed, sort of felt incomplete upon their release 20 years ago. In fact, it seems to take something like a 20th anniversary for certain films to be deemed important. It might lead one to ask if the 1990s had any classic or iconic movies?

It would be easy to write a lot of these films off. Lord knows many a critic did, however, when you take a solid look at this list, many of these films have stood the test of time. Some of have even become iconic movies. The mere fact that they are even on a list of this nature is a testament to this. »

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress

9 March 2017 11:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: 2018 Oscar Predictions

Audiences got their first looks at Emma Stone, Brie Larson, Julianne Moore and Jennifer Lawrence’s winning Best Actress performances at fall festivals Toronto or Telluride, so we may not have a clear view of this category until September.

Cannes may give us some early clues, when Golden Globe and Cesar-winner Isabelle Huppert is expected to resurface in Michael Haneke’s “Happy End.” Woody Allen’s upcoming “Wonder Wheel” could reveal whether Kate Winslet could enjoy the same kind of awards season run that Cate Blanchett had in the lead-up to her “Blue Jasmine” win.

Last year’s Toronto breakout Florence Pugh (“Lady Macbeth”) and Sundance rising star Danielle MacDonald (“Patti Cake$”) could join former nominee Carey Mulligan (“Mudbound”) in contention.

Check back in June when Nicole Kidman gets a chance to shine in Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled.”

A list of early possibilities is below. »

Titanic: James Cameron shoots down ending suggestion

9 March 2017 10:15 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Mar 10, 2017

There's a little theory about the ending of Titanic, and James Cameron has firmly given his view on it. Spoilers...

This story contains major spoilers for the ending of Titanic.

This year, incredibly, marks the 20th anniversary of the second biggest film of all time, Titanic. The movie won 11 Oscars, three of which sit on the mantelpiece of James Cameron, who wrote, directed and edited the picture. It's $2.18bn box office gross (that was topped up by the 3D re-release a few years back) is second only to Avatar on the all-time box office list.

Cameron plans to make - or at least be involved with - a documentary this year to mark the 20th anniversary of the film (and he’s starting filming Avatar 2 in August, too). And in a new interview with The View, he’s also addressed an issue regarding the ending of Titanic. »

The Star Wattage of Mildred Pierce (1945)

5 March 2017 10:16 PM, PST | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

The 1945 cinematic adaptation of Mildred Pierce, directed by Michael Curtiz and starring, of course, Joan Crawford, is a very different beast to the 2011 HBO mini-series starring Kate Winslet. In all honestly it is not as good, but more significantly it is very different in terms of costume. Interestingly enough the mini-series, which is evidently a period piece, is closer in terms of historical accuracy than the near contemporary set Crawford version. This is not the be all and end all, because while Winslet’s Pierce may feel more real in terms of costume and setting, Crawford’s is arguably more fun. If for no other reason than to exemplify how the importance of star wattage took over everything back then regardless of what was contained in the script. Make no mistake, the story may be centred on Mildred Pierce but the movie is one hundred percent centred on Joan Crawford. »

Study Ranks American Actors’ British Accents, and Vice Versa

27 February 2017 4:29 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anyone who’s seen “Mary Poppins” knows what a bad Cockney accent sounds like. But for the first time, British actors have ranked Dick Van Dyke’s “mockney” as the worst attempt at a U.K. accent in a pool of the highest grossing films’ leads.

Language-learning app Babbel commissioned ex-pat professional actors from both the U.K. and U.S. to vote on a five-point scale on how convincing the accents were for leading parts in blockbusters grossing over $100 million.

For the United States accent, American Actors UK awarded British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor a 4.5/5 for his work as Solomon Northup in “12 Years a Slave.” Tied for second are the DC superheros; Christian Bale as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman both garnered 4.2/5 scores.

Best in show for the Americans attempting the over-the-pond accents, awarded by British Actors in La, are Meryl Streep, Gwyneth Paltrow and Renée Zellweger. Streep’s »

Beauty vs Beast: Bonnie & Clyde's Last Stand

27 February 2017 12:40 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here continuing the talk of last night's big events - specifically the biggest, the corker, the one for the ages, when Warren Beatty rammed the wrong envelope into Faye Dunaway's hands and just made her deal with it. (Something tells me Annette Bening is the one who calls the plumber and writes the checks in that household.) Or was Warren just too scared of Faye to speak up? Don't fuck with her, fellas - if Faye was eyeballing me like that I might crumble to dust too.

Or perhaps it was a Russian conspiracy that will be solved when we finally see Donald Trump's tax returns? So many possibilities, and it's clearly a bit rude to lay any real blame for a dumb mistake at the feet of Faye & Warren, who were after all standing there in the hot glare of two billion eyeballs with »
