Yes, No, Maybe So Double: "Hanna" and "The Other Woman"

29 December 2010 7:54 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's a double dip for Yes No Maybe So as we're way behind. Can't the movie world just stop for a little bit during the holidays so that we can all enjoy the movies we have right in front of us? Too many things. Too many things. Here's a girlish double and we'll get more manly in the next installment.

Let's start with The Other Woman which used to be called Love and Other Impossible Pursuits (better less generic title) starring the ubiquitous Natalie Portman. And that's ubiquitous with a capital U because, really, she's only going to get more inescapable from here on out.

The Other Woman

First there's this movie, then there's that Ashton Kuchner romcom, then Your Highness, then there's Thor (yes, 4 releases in 2011) plus the next two months of awards shows and then the wedding and the baby and so on. Is she aiming for Jolie »

An action fantasy movie about a girl? Awesome. More like this, please. Assuming it’s any good, of course. But it must be. Director Joe Wright is great -- I love his stuff. Fantastic cast: Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, Cate Blanchett... Wait, is that cast dominated by women? Awesome. Hannaopens in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. on April 8, 2011. »

Natalie Portman: Does pregnancy help her Oscar chances?

28 December 2010 1:03 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Yes, I know, it’s kind of a ridiculous question. But as we all well know, winning an Oscar isn’t just about delivering a worthy performance. It’s about how a performer is perceived within the industry. So on the heels of Black Swan star Natalie Portman’s announcement that she’s expecting her first child, I was curious: How have pregnant nominees fared over the years?

Rachel Weisz was noticeably pregnant when she won her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for The Constant Gardener. Catherine Zeta-Jones was too when she won the same category for Chicago. Same with Eva Marie Saint »

Top 10 Trailers of 2010

28 December 2010 8:18 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Over the past year, we’ve brought you a lot of posters and a lot of trailers.  Yesterday, I gave you my picks for the top 10 posters of 2010.  Today, I have my picks for the top 10 trailers of the year.  While we’re a bunch of obsessives who track every phase of a movie’s production, your average moviegoer will only first become aware of a movie once they see the trailer. Hit the jump to check out my picks for the ten best trailers of 2010. Briefly, the only rule for the list regarding eligibility was that the trailer had to come out this year, even if the film it’s promoting isn’t released until 2011.  Also, no fan-made trailers (sorry, “Rerezzed”).  I’ve also included links to buy the music (when available) used in each trailer. 10. Hanna This looks too weird (for a mainstream film) to pass-up.  Eric Bana »

‘Hanna’ starring Saoirse Ronan – trailer review

27 December 2010 6:54 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Hanna

Directed by: Joe Wright

Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett, Eric Bana

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: April 8, 2011

Trailer Score: 10/10

My Thoughts: Hanna is one of those rare movies that is so chock full of potential that I can honestly say I don’t know where to begin. And for those that know me, personally or professionally, most will agree that it’s a rare occasion when I’m left speechless.

It’s difficult to say what drew me in first with this trailer. On a strictly visual level, Joe Wright, the same man who brought us that staggering long take of the beach in Atonement has never been one to disappoint visually. Hell, it could be be a film about a cat peeing in a litter box and I have no doubt that Joe Wright would find a way to make it look beautiful.

But thankfully, it’s not. It »

Trailer: ‘Hanna’

26 December 2010 12:31 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Yahoo released the trailer for one of my most anticipated movies of next year, Hanna directed by Joe Wright.  The film tells the story of Hanna (Saoirse Ronan), raised by her father (Eric Bana) to become an assassin.  The film also stars Cate Blanchett, presumably playing the villain, and Olivia Williams.  A couple things intrigued me about this project when it was first announced.  The script made the Black List, Hollywood’s annual yearly list of the best unproduced screenplays, in 2006 and 2009.  However the more intriguing thing was the fact that Wright, who directed Atonement and Pride & Prejudice, was directing.  Atonement was a big step forward from Pride & Prejudice and I look forward to seeing what he can do with an action movie.  He is clearly not interested in repeating himself.  The trailer looks really promising and I am already looking forward to the soundtrack alone, as it is being scored by The Chemical Brothers. »

Cate Blanchett Replaces Jennifer Jason Leigh in While We’re Young

26 December 2010 9:15 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Cate Blanchett, James Franco and Ben Stiller have all signed on to star in director Noah Baumbach’s upcoming film ‘While We’re Young,’ Cinemablend.com is reporting. The news comes after Baumbach’s wife, Jennifer Jason Leigh, filed for divorce and dropped out of her role. Greta Gerwig, who is most remembered for starring in the director’s last film, ‘Greenberg,’ has also left the movie due to scheduling conflicts. ‘While We’re Young’ is set to follow a documentary filmmaker (played by Stiller) and his wife (portrayed by Blanchett), who are forced to lighten up by a younger couple (played by Franco and a still undecided actress).

This Week In Trailers: Kidnapped (Secuestrados), Archipelago, Apocalypse, CA, The War You Don’t See

24 December 2010 11:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? Kidnapped (Secuestrados) Trailer Interesting thing, the long take. Hotly debated on the /Film podcast with regard to this filmmaking trick, exploring its merits and effective uses some months ago now, »

Greta Gerwig Out Of Noah Baumbach's While We're Young, Cate Blanchett In

23 December 2010 7:18 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With his While We.re Young already in a bit of upheaval after his wife, Jennifer Jason Leigh, filed for divorce and then dropped out, Noah Baumbach has encountered another snafu. Greta Gerwig, probably best known for being in Baumbach.s last movie Greenberg or for looking like a less attractive Chloe Sevigny, has now been forced to withdraw because of a scheduling conflict. But with the loss comes a gain, as Cate Blanchett has joined the cast alongside James Franco and Ben Stiller, provided they all remaining on board. According to Thompson on Hollywood, producer Scott Rudin has also admitted While We.re Young.s funding still isn.t quite in place, nor is a distributor officially on board, but with numerous Independent Spirit Award Nominations for Greenberg and three quarters of a talented cast already in place, it.s hard to imagine those issues won.t eventually disappear. »

Choose The 1998 Academy Award Winners!

23 December 2010 6:30 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I love that a heated discussion over Titanic’s infamous Oscar sweep of 1998 has already begun over at Laurent’s excellent retrospective. I guess it’s just the nature of this particular film. There is something about Titanic that hits a raw nerve in people and they feel a need to defend/criticize it so passionately.

As it happens, I fall in the ‘unconditional love’ category and I’m not afraid to admit it. To this day I have a passion for Titanic, a film that so perfectly matches what a glorious, spellbinding, big spectacle romance against an historic backdrop should be, and those films are so rare, especially when they are made with such precise and meticulous detail from James Cameron.

We shouldn’t be embarrassed over how much we loved Titanic in the 90′s. We should embrace it. So as our third ‘Choose The Winners’ article, we are »

Check out the first trailer for action thriller Hanna starring Saoirse Ronan

23 December 2010 4:04 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Saoirse Ronan has been building quite a name for herself since bursting onto the scene with her Academy Award-nominated supporting turn in Atonement (2007), following this up with roles in Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones (2008) and Peter Weir's soon-to-be-released WW2 epic The Way Back (2010). The young Irish actress will next turn her hand to action, reuniting with Atonement director Joe Wright for the adventure thriller Hanna, which has just received its first trailer earlier this week.

Ronan stars as the titular Hanna, a 14 year-old who has been raised by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-cia spy, to be a the perfect assassin. After completing her training, Hanna is sent out into the world on a dangerous mission, journeying across Europe while eluding hostile agents dispatched by a ruthless intelligence agent (Cate Blanchett). Also featuring in the cast are Tom Hollander (Valkyrie) and Olivia Williams (An Education), while Brit dance »

Cate Blanchett to Join Stiller & Franco in 'While We're Young'

23 December 2010 2:23 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Oscar winner Cate Blanchett will join Ben Stiller and James Franco in Noah Baumbach's "While We're Young," producer Scott Rudin has confirmed to Thompson on Hollywood. The relationship dramedy follows a free-spirited twenty-something Brooklyn couple (Franco and a yet-to-be-cast actress) who inspires a documentarian (Stiller) and his wife (Blanchett) to loosen up -- with comedic consequences. It's good to see Blanchett branching out and tackling lighter fare on the heels of "Robin Hood," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." Blanchett will likely »

Before Noah Baumbach and Jennifer Jason Leigh broke up, Baumbach wrote the lead female role in While We We'Re Young just for her. When you break up it might be a little hard to work together. Now that Leigh is out, Cate Blanchett is the one stepping in for her. What's Baumbach's story all about?

This week's trailers: Bathing suits, underpants, and teenage butt-kicking

23 December 2010 11:05 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Does Natalie Portman’s CGI bathing suit in Your Highness land on the naughty or the nice list? Or does it matter, since we all apparently checked it twice, anyway? The Danny McBride/James Franco comedy wasn’t the only trailer gracing the web-waves this week, though it was probably the most fun:

Elsewhere in women-kicking-ass stories, this week brought us the awesome trailer for Hanna, starring Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, and Cate Blanchett.

Matthew McConaughey makes his return to intense legal thrillers in The Lincoln Lawyer, also starring Marisa Tomei and Ryan Phillippe.

‘Hanna’ Trailer Starring Ronan, Bana, Blanchett

23 December 2010 9:10 AM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Focus Features has released a movie trailer for Joe Wright’s Hanna, a mystery thriller starring Saoirse Ronan as a teenager trained as an assassin from birth by her father (Eric Bana).  Until she turns 14 and he deems Hanna ready to complete a dangerous mission.

Her isolation in the wooded tundra of Finland means she knows very little about the outside world.  So while Hanna knows multiple languages, stealth tactics, and the skills to snap someone’s neck, she is lost when confronted by pop culture, boys, friendship, and love.

In a sort of Jason Bourne meets Kick Ass story, Hanna must uncover more about her past while a CIA Agent (Cate Blanchett) hunts her every step of the way.  Watch the trailer below, set to the pumping beats of The Chemical Brothers:

Hanna is scheduled for theaters on April 8, 2011.

Trailer: Hanna Is Feelgood Child Assassin Movie Of The Year

22 December 2010 11:23 AM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

Movie trailers are a funny thing. Many times, the best, most exciting trailers produce the worst, plotless, unbearable films. That seems to be the consensus with Hanna, a movie about a feral child assassin (played by Saoirse Ronan, pronounced “the little girl from Atonement“) raised by Eric Bana, who eventually has to go her own way and kick some ass solo-style, including Cate Blanchett, recycling last year’s Hillary Clinton Halloween costume. The trailer is like “Woah! – Joey on Blossom,” but the movie might be a dragging snore. Check out the trailer and then read on for our conclusion: Conclusion: We will see anything with Eric Bana in it. Also, is his career on the downswing? Inexcusable. (via Gawker) »
