Tiff Review: ‘The Mountain Between Us’ is a Serviceable Survival Story

16 September 2017 6:49 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Kate Winslet and Idris Elba are two formidable actors that exude immaculate on-screen presence. So having both co-star in a film that basically pits them alone for most of the runtime can lead one to assume we’d be in for something special. The Mountain Between Us, adapted from the book by Charles Martin, is not that special movie. The Hollywood debut of Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad, who made Paradise Now and Omar, turns out to be surprisingly pedantic. Whereas the two aforementioned movies dealt with hefty, substance-driven subject matters, The Mountain Between Us is nothing more than a survival love story set in the far-reaching rocky mountains.

Winslet plays photojournalist Alex and Elba is neurologist Ben. They meet at Salt Lake City airport after their flight is cancelled. Much to their fortune — or lack thereof, it turns out — they meet a pilot (Beau Bridges) that flies them in his private chartered plane. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Mountain Between Us’

10 September 2017 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An odd choice of American studio project from Israeli director — and two-time Oscar foreign-language nominee — Hany Abu-Assad (“Paradise Now,” “Omar”), “The Mountain Between Us” begins with a spectacular disaster, as a private plane crash-lands atop a snow-covered ridge in what’s known as the High Uintas Wilderness in northern Utah. It’s all downhill from there, literally, as Kate Winslet, Idris Elba and the dead pilot’s dog attempt to make their way back to civilization.

Between its beautiful stars and panoramic vistas, this gorgeous-looking Fox production offers plenty of scenery to ogle, but not much else for the brain to do while Winslet and Elba alternately bicker and bond in what amounts to a fairly routine wilderness trek — minus wolves, avalanches, frostbite or any of the challenges that typically make such things interesting. Instead, true to the eminently skimmable novel on which it’s based (Charles Martin writes like a child. In »

Castings

Melanie Laurent and Nick Kroll have joined Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley in MGM’s “Operation Finale,” the historical drama about the capture of Adolf Eichmann.

Chris Weitz is directing the drama from Matthew Orton’s screenplay about the capture of Eichmann, who was one of the major architects of the Holocaust. Eichmann organized the transport of Jews from countries all over Europe to concentration camps, where an estimated 6 million died.

Celebs And Others To Participate In Annual Architects For Animals' Giving Shelter Event

4 September 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | Look to the Stars | See recent Look to the Stars news »

One of this year’s most innovative design events, Architects for Animals “Giving Shelter” exhibit, returns to the Herman Miller Showroom in Culver City on October 19th 2017.

The event is expected to be a sold-out fundraiser for La-based non-profit FixNation, which provides free spay and neuter services for the city’s skyrocketing population of homeless cats.

La’s top architecture and design firms as well as individual architects and designers have been invited to design, build and donate one-of-a-kind and functional outdoor dwellings for cats. Shelters will be displayed at a cocktail reception attended by the public, VIPs and media representatives. Also on display: cat food bowls decorated by feline-loving celebrities such as Jay Leno, Beau Bridges, Morgan Fairchild, Tricia Helfer, Jackson Galaxy and Elvira; all bowls will be available for purchase via an online auction.

“These cat shelters are absolutely remarkable,” says FixNation’s Co-Founder and Executive Director Karn Myers. »

The wait is almost over. Nominations for the 2017 Emmy Awards will be announced Thursday at 11:30 am Et

(watch them live right here on TVLine) and here’s what I can promise you: HBO’s Big Little Lies and FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan will dominate the limited series categories, NBC’s Trump-fueled Saturday Night Live will walk away with one of its largest nomination hauls ever, and the list of egregious snubs will be as long as it will be painful. Beyond that, it’s a total crap shoot.

Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie

12 June 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: Sterling K. Brown, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: While HBO and FX have the most nominations in this category over the past six years, they each have won twice and both have lost twice (to PBS in 2014 and History in 2012).

Fun Fact: Beau Bridges is the only actor to win this category twice. He won for “The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom” (1993) and “The Second Civil War” (1997).

The consistently crowded supporting actor category is again stacked with contenders this year. HBO and FX are at it again with enough offerings to fill the field by themselves (which FX almost did in 2016, with five of the six slots). First up, FX has “Fargo” and “Feud” as top competitors. David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbarg are damn impressive in Season 3, while Alfred Molina and Stanley Tucci are »

How Hal Ashby’s ‘The Landlord’ Provided an Early Glimpse at a Complicated Modern Brooklyn

12 June 2017 11:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In his new memoir, “Making Rent in Bed-Stuy: A Memoir of Trying to Make It in New York City,” filmmaker, author, and professor Brandon Harris explores his unique coming-of-age in the city — and community — that he loves. Incidentally and not at all accidentally, the book includes a reflections on a number of essential films that shaped Harris’ journey, from Spike Lee joints to underappreciated indies and even Hal Ashby’s “The Landlord.”

In celebration of the book, Harris has also curated a series at Brooklyn’s Alamo Drafthouse under the same title, featuring four films that speak directly to his novel and his experience, including tonight’s screening of “The Landlord.”

Emmy Contenders 2017: Guest Actor in a Drama

1 June 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Look for returning characters to dominate the category, with last year’s winner Hank Azaria likely to repeat his nom for his role as disgraced FBI Agent Ed Cochran in “Ray Donovan.” Beau Bridges should land his third consecutive nod for “Masters of Sex.” Mark Margolis was last nominated for playing Hector Salamanca on “Breaking Bad” in 2012, and that was with a minimum of dialogue, so he has a good shot for bringing a younger but no less terrifying Hector to “Better Call Saul.” Ben Mendelsohn previously won in the supporting category for “Bloodline” but this year he’s eligible as a guest star. year. And both Dylan Baker and Matthew Perry could earn nods for bringing their characters from “The Good Wife” to its spinoff “The Good Fight.”

The freshman series “This Is Us” could be a powerhouse, with turns from Denis O’Hare, Brian Tyree Henry, Jermel Nakia and Gerald McRaney. But »

Guest Actor in a Comedy: The Frontrunners and Dark Horses for 2017 Emmys

1 June 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This category caused quite a bit of buzz last year when Peter MacNicol was nominated for “Veep” and then deemed ineligible, as he appeared in too many episodes to qualify as a guest. He was replaced by Peter Scolari of “Girls,” who went on to actually win. Well, this year both Peters are eligible and should return to the category. They’ll face off against some stiff competition, including Louis C.K., who has landed three noms for hosting “SNL” already. Dave Chapelle also hosted a popular episode of “SNL.” Jon Hamm and Fred Willard have both been nominated here before for their roles on “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Modern Family,” while Hugh Laurie has moved into the guest category for his returning character on “Veep.” Daveed Diggs was hilarious as Kimmy’s new love interest on “Kimmy Schmidt,” but he’s more likely to be recognized for his arc as Bow’s laidback brother on “Black-ish.” Guests »

'Bloodline': Beau Bridges Talks Roy Gilbert's Relationship With the Rayburns

1 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: The following story contains spoilers from Bloodline's third season.]

Kevin Rayburn (Norbert Leo Butz) discovered the limits of Roy Gilbert (Beau Bridges) thinking of him "like a son" in the third and final season of Netflix's Bloodline. Specifically, it was the moment when nurses at the hospital where the sketchy businessman was recuperating from a heart attack couldn't tell Kevin if Gilbert died, citing "family only" rules.

But as far Bridges is concerned, Gilbert truly did care for Kevin like a child, even though he may have gotten into business with the youngest Rayburn brother for selfish reasons.

The Mountain Between Us trailer

Idris Elba and Kate Winslet survive together in the cold after a plane crash in The Mountain Between Us trailer.

Quick Update: the UK release date for this one has now been confirmed as October 6th.

The Mountain Between Us, a romance-tinted survival epic, thrusts the always-game Idris Elba into a chilly survival situation opposite an actor who knows a thing or two about those on screen, Kate Winslet. However, as the newly released trailer proves, this situation is attributed to much more than an unwillingness to scoot over on a makeshift raft, since it occurs after a plane crash over snowy Northeastern Utah mountains.

The Mountain Between Us Trailer: Idris Elba And Kate Winslet Brave The Wilderness

31 May 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Meet Ben Payne and Ashley Martin. The former is a studious journalist departing from Salt Lake City airport to attend a medical conference, though severe weather conditions force him to take the road (flightpath?) less traveled and board a dinky charter plane. He isn’t the only one, as Ashley is also eager to return home to reunite with her fiancé. The two strangers then find themselves crammed into a small aircraft, but tragedy strikes when their pilot suffers a heart attack mid-flight, bringing their plane crashing down into the icy High Uintas Wilderness.

And that’s where The Mountain Between Us gets going in earnest. Charles Martin’s 2011 page-turner was hailed as a touching story of two strangers forced into a desperate life-or-death situation, one that is as much about the emotional journey as it is the literal pilgrimage that Ben and Ashley must endure.

Idris Elba, Kate Winslet Are Stranded in ‘The Mountain Between Us’ Trailer

31 May 2017 8:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Idris Elba and Kate Winslet are seriously stranded in the snowy wilderness in first trailer for the survival story “The Mountain Between Us.”

The duo portray a pair of busy professionals — he’s a surgeon, she’s a journalist who’s about to be married — who pair up for the sake of convenience to take a small plane (piloted by Beau Bridges) that crashes in the middle of nowhere. They’re both injured and soon realize help isn’t coming.

“The pilot didn’t file a flight plan,” she says. “”Nobody knows where we are. We’re all we’ve got.”

The trailer shows Winslet descending through ice into water and Elba nearly falling off a steep cliff, but remaining resolute. “We’re not going to die — not today,” he declares.

Hany Abu-Assad is directing the film for Fox 2000, while Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are producing through Fox-based Chernin Entertainment. »
