Red-Carpet Video & Photo: Woody Allen in Chicago for ‘Magic in the Moonlight’

14 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – A neurotic New Yorker, Woody Allen has been a fixture in Hollywood for more than 50 years. After racking up 73 writing credits and 50 in the director’s chair, Allen returned to Chicago on July 19, 2014 to walk the red carpet for his new romantic dramedy “Magic in the Moonlight”.

The film stars Emma Stone and Colin Firth.

At the age of 79, our red-carpet video shows you Woody Allen’s enduring wit, discusses what he thinks is funny, reminisces about standup comedy in Chicago and recalls how much the now-vegetarion misses Windy City ribs. The video also includes interviews with executive producer Ron Chez and Metropolitan Capital CEO Michael Rose. Enjoy our red-carpet video below!

While it lacks the oomph and memorability of Allen’s “Blue Jasmine,” which in 2013 scored and Oscar for Cate Blanchett’s leading role, “Magic in the Moonlight” fascinatingly focuses on the seance, psychic and magic craze of the 1920s. »

'Magic in the Moonlight' (2014) Movie Review

21 July 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In my opinion a new Woody Allen movie every year is a bit of a treat. Yes, they can disappoint such as Whatever Works, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and To Rome with Love, but they can also be true knock outs such as Vicki Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris, along with the stunning performance from Cate Blanchett in last year's Blue Jasmine, and that's only looking at the last six Allen films. He's directed nearly 50 over his illustrious career and I'd say his latest, Magic in the Moonlight, falls somewhere in the middle. Set in France in the 1920s, the film is complete with all the acerbic wit, pessimism for life and otherwise charm the better Allen films often exude. Magic in the Moonlight's first two-thirds are delightful as we're first introduced to Colin Firth in the role of Stanley Crawford, a pompous and arrogant »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 21st 2014

21 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This week annoyed by a loudmouth blogger of some repute, who declared anime for paedophiles and insulted more or less the whole of Japanese culture, I decided to watch Netflix original anime Knights of Sidonia. His comments have widely been circulated and condemned by many people and he’s just made himself look a fool, and all this just because Gus Van Sant might be directing a Death Note movie. I recognise that anime is not for everyone but still, by dismissing all of it you are missing out on an awful lot of classic work and influential stuff.

Knights of Sidonia has been billed as a Netflix original but it’s quite hard to imagine that they would have been involved in the production of something like this, it’s pretty far out there even for anime and its more likely that Netflix have done what they did with »

Miley Cyrus recently took to Instagram to show off her new tattoo. The fresh ink features her late dog, Floyd, who died in April, and a word bubble that reads, "With a little help from my fwends."

Blue Jasmine

18 July 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Cate Blanchett is in Oscar-winning form in this sensational comedy drama that sees Woody Allen back at the top of his game. As Jasmine, a pampered Manhattan socialite brought to Earth with a stony broke bump, Blanchett commands the screen with a turn of incredible complexity. Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins and even controversial comedian Andrew Dice Clay also impress in this ambitious examination of the haves and have-nots, corporate greed and the lies we tell ourselves. »

Emma Stone & Colin Firth Star In 10 New Stills For ‘Magic In The Moonlight’

18 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As Woody Allen continues his ‘film a year‘ project, it looks like he’s come up with another quirky comedy that stars Emma Stone and Colin Firth, and it’s all set in the 1920s on the Riviera in the south of France. Quintessentially, Magic In The Moonlight is a romantic comedy about a master magician (Colin Firth) trying to expose a psychic medium (Emma Stone) as a fake.

With two very likable leads, this might not have the intensity of Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine but recalls a touch of Midnight In Paris. For this film, it follows the supposed Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo, who is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Firth), a grouchy Englishman with a sky opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists’ claims that they can perform real magic. »

Movie Review – How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

17 July 2014 11:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

How to Train Your Dragon 2, 2014.

Directed by Dean DeBlois.

Starring Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, Kristen Wiig, Djimon Hounsou and Kit Harington

Synopsis:

When Hiccup and Toothless discover an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.

My brain needed a night’s sleep to make the connection and allow me to figure out what HTTYD2 reminded me of. But this morning it clicked.

The Empire Strikes Back.

That’s a rather lofty comparison I’m aware, but whilst this DreamWorks sequel doesn’t hit those heights it does a great job in the same way Empire did. Not only does it give us more of Hiccup and Toothless in an entertaining way, but it »

Check Out Ian McKellen And Luke Evans In The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Image

17 July 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whatever your thoughts are on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy when compared to the director’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, you certainly can’t fault him for casting. This new trilogy, which concludes in December with The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, has brought back Ian McKellen as the great wizard Gandalf and Orlando Bloom as archer Legolas, while starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, Benedict Cumberbatch as the dragon Smaug and Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman, among many, many others. Now, we’ve got a new image from the trilogy topper, highlighting McKellen and Evans as they gaze, awe-struck, off-screen at what I can only presume is The Hobbit‘s collective worldwide box office haul.

Granted, the shot isn’t the most revealing, but it’s a nice reminder that this movie is on its way. So much attention »

Emma Stone Flummoxes Colin Firth in New Trailer for Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight

17 July 2014 5:02 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Centering your story around a stage-weary magician who targets a celebrated medium intent on disproving her acclaimed skills as a psychic seems like a ripe idea. Notions of belief and denial, fraud and fragility can all come into play, and as this is a Woody Allen they most certainly will. Casting Colin Firth and Emma as respective magician and medium gives an idea of where Magic in the Moonlight is heading.

Warner Bros. have released a new trailer for Allen’s latest film, which seems to set him back on the solid ground of mercurial whimsy so enjoyed by the Midnight in Paris set of a couple of years ago. His last, Blue Jasmine, conjured up the same ravings (return to form, later serious film etc) but did get an Oscar-shaped commendation for Cate Blanchett. This looks to be far lighter in tone, but that’s no bad thing at all. »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Gets An Official Synopsis

15 July 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy hasn’t received nearly as positive reviews as The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the first two installments were solid, if overlong, high fantasy adventures, thanks both to Jackson’s sense of visual splendor and the talents of the ensemble cast. An Unexpected Journey was more dull than many expected, though I personally enjoyed it, and The Desolation of Smaug was a big step up from that, accelerating the pace and featuring some truly epic battles. So, will the trilogy-topper, this winter’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, keep that upward momentum going to become the best of the bunch? It’s too early to say, of course, but the first official synopsis for the fantasy film certainly seems promising.

It's almost exhausting just to think about it, but Peter Jackson's bloated telling of J.R.R.
