The Imitation Game Blu-ray Review

4 March 2015 4:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Morten Tyldum

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Charles Dance, Rory Kinnear, Allen Leech

Running Time: 114 minutes

Certificate: 12

Extras: Making The Imitation Game, Alan Turing: Man & Enigma, Heroes of Bletchley

The Imitation Game is an outstanding introduction and exploration of the remarkable life of genius Alan Turing, his unique work, alongside a dedicated team at Bletchley Park, had a historic effect on the outcome of the Second World War. The story had been hidden for 29 years before it was revealed in 1974 and although many of us have known about the story specific story of Enigma, I feel that Turing’s remarkable and vital involvement hadn’t really been told to a wider audience until now.

Cumberbatch is a striking fit for the character that is both in the truest sense a genius and at a loss for his connection to ‘normal’ life, whatever that is, his »

The Imitation Game Blu-ray gets March release

27 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Weinstein Company and Anchor Bay Home Entertainment have announced a March 31st Blu-ray release for The Imitation Game, which won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar at last weekend’s ceremony.

Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Keira Knightley (Begin Again), who were both nominated for Oscars for their performances here, star alongside Matthew Goode (Watchmen), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) and Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Secret Service), and the film is directed by Morten Tyldum.

Pre-order The Imitation Game Here

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. Instead, they arrested Turing on charges of “gross indecency,” an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality. Little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, »

Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection: given a raw deal?

26 February 2015 10:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Is the recent hint that the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection are to be overlooked a little too drastic?

This article contains spoilers for Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection.

If there’s one thing that is, for me, an unqualified triumph in Alien 3, it’s Elliot Goldenthal’s score. With its cacophonous drums and heart-rending strings, it soared where the film itself faltered.

But as I’ve argued many, many times on these pages, Alien 3 is itself a flawed masterpiece. Sure, it stepped roughly all over the story established in Aliens, but there were plans to kill off Newt and Hicks before first-time director David Fincher even came aboard.

Saddled with a film without an adequately finished script, an interfering studio and a looming release date, Fincher remained true to the gloomy vision laid out for him: Sigourney Weaver wanted the sequel to be her last, »

Watch: Everyone Falls Down Stairs in New 'Game of Thrones' Blooper Reel

25 February 2015 9:44 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Because everyone needs more laughing in their life -- especially the denizens of Westeros -- HBO has thankfully put out a second blooper reel from the fourth season of "Game of Thrones." As we’ve previously seen, the "GoT" cast gets along quite well, to the point where the camaraderie on set leads to unfortunate (yet hilarious) mishaps. In the new blooper reel below, the cast members forget their lines, crack up when inappropriate and fall down multiple sets of stairs. Ser Pounce misbehaves and Charles Dance almost breaks the Iron Throne, but all is well with a perfect shot of Pedro Pascal at the end. Season 5 of "Game of Thrones" begins April 12 on HBO. Check out the blooper reel below.  Read More: Watch: Peter Dinklage Dances and Screws Up His Accent in Hilarious 'Game of Thrones' Blooper Reel »

"The Imitation Game" - 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'

23 February 2015 11:25 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.Ca"  Sneak Peek 'the good, the bad and the ugly' in "The Imitation Game" starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley:

Michael Stevens for 'The Good':

"...'The Imitation Game' is a fast-paced thriller based on a true story, starring actor Benedict Cumberbatch in a sympathetic (sometimes pitiful) turn as English mathematician 'Alan Turing', whose calculated efforts at breaking the 'Third Reich's 'enigma' code, turned the tide for the Allies in WWII.

"Mark Strong is a reassuring presence as 'Stewart Menzies', the sly head of 'MI6'.

"Charles Dance is suitably crusty as battle-worn, cynical 'Commander Denniston'.

"Keira Knightley as math whiz 'Joan Clarke' does her job as a 'feminist' romantic interest for Turing (?!) and is pleasing (as usual) to look at..."

Graf Orlok for 'The Bad': 

"Michael, I agree that Keira Knightley does get some nice close-ups of her pouty lips, »

'Game of Thrones' Season 4 Bloopers

20 February 2015 3:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, we revealed new deleted scenes from Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray and DVD, which was released earlier this week. While fans continue the long wait for Season 5, we have a new gag reel from the hit HBO series, which features stars such as Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and many more screwing up their lines and even losing their balance.

In Season 4, while the Lannisters' hold on the Iron Throne remains intact, new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east threaten to tip the scales. As Stannis Baratheon and Daenerys Targaryen continue to grow their respective armies, the arrival of the Lannister-loathing "Red Viper of Dorne" poses a more immediate danger. In the north, the depleted Night's Watch seems overmatched against the advances of Mance Rayder's army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even »

17 February 2015 7:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For those who aren't quite caught up with HBO's hit series Game of Thrones, The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray and DVD was released today, giving fans just under two months to get up to speed before Season 5 debuts April 12. If you haven't gotten a chance to pick up your copy quite yet, HBO has released two deleted scenes that weren't featured during the show's Season 4 run last year. The first scene features Bronn (Jerome Flynn) telling a distraught Shae (Sibel Kekilli) that it's time for her to adapt, after Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) dismisses her, while the second scene features Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) warning Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) to never betray her.

In Season 4, while the Lannisters' hold on the Iron Throne remains intact, new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east threaten to tip the scales. As Stannis Baratheon and Daenerys Targaryen continue to grow their respective armies, »

Game Of Thrones movie: just "rumours" says Sophie Turner

16 February 2015 11:09 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

While praising the show's IMAX ambitions, Sophie Turner has downplayed those Game Of Thrones film rumours...

Rumours persist that HBO's Game Of Thrones will build towards a movie release at some point in its run, probably at the end of it. The cast of the show have been doing promotional work for both the disc release of Game Of Thrones season 4 and the upcoming Game Of Thrones season 5 too, and somewhat inevitably, questions about a possible film were not far away.

Sophie Turner is the latest to be asked, and she confirmed that at this stage, chat about a Game Of Thrones movie was just "rumours", adding that "I'm not going to rule it out".

Turner noted that Game Of Thrones "was a huge success in IMAX - but I think the reason it was a success is because it's a TV show, and because it's the first TV show »

Game of Thrones star on movie rumours: 'I'm content with the TV show'

16 February 2015 5:51 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sophie Turner has suggested that reports of a potential Game of Thrones film are just "rumours".

Last year, Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) claimed that producers on the HBO series were actively discussing a big screen outing.

"I'm not gonna rule it out," Turner told press including Digital Spy.

"It was a huge success in IMAX - but I think the reason it was a success is because it's a TV show, and because it's the first TV show to be done in IMAX."

Recent IMAX screenings of two Game of Thrones episodes across the Us took $1.5 million at the box office from 205 playdates.

"It's just so magnificent - the Battle of Blackwater was incredible on IMAX - and so I don't know if they would do a movie," said Turner - who plays Sansa Stark.

"I know there's been rumours going round in the press [about a feature film] - but for now, I'm »

Game Of Thrones season 4: 67 things we learned from the DVDs

15 February 2015 3:57 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Cameos, mistakes and in-jokes. We’ve trawled the Game Of Thrones season 4 DVD commentaries for what went on behind the scenes…

Warning: contains spoilers for Game Of Thrones season 4.

If you’re a busy Game Of Thrones fan who can’t find the spare ten hours required to re-watch season four with the accompanying disc commentaries, then we have your back. Gleaned from said audio tracks provided by the cast, crew and creators George R.R. Martin, Dan Weiss and David Benioff, is the below list of nerdy facts and anecdotes about the making of season four.

Granted, skip the commentaries and you won’t experience first-hand Peter Dinklage’s rendition of Let It Go from Frozen, a stream of filthy innuendo from Lena Headey, or the general sense of awe, adoration and good-natured mockery everyone who works on the show has for everyone else (“If only you could act, Peter »

‘Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season’ DVD Review

Stars: Emelia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Natalie Dormer, Stephen Dillane, Kit Harington, Maisie Williams, Rory McCann | Based on the books by George R.R. Martin

February is the time of year we realise that we still have another two months until Game of Thrones returns.  A glimmer of hope though is the fact that Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season is released on DVD and Blu-ray this week to keep us going.  Either allowing people who haven’t watched to fully enjoy the season, or for the rest of us to relive it once more, this is the perfect time to take another trip to Westeros…

Season four of Game of Thrones starts with the shadow of the Red Wedding still hanging over what is left of the Stark family, and the Purple wedding yet to come.  In an eventful season we see a downfall of sorts for the Lannisters, »

Exclusive UK Poster For Child 44

12 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Tom Hardy. Gary Oldman. Noomi Rapace. A tale of Soviet intrigue. We know a lot of you have been looking forward to Child 44, so we’re happy to be offering a first look at the new UK poster for the movie, in one-sheet and quad flavours, because choice is good. Adapted from the first of a book trilogy by Tom Rob Smith, Child 44 finds Soviet police officer Hardy investigating a serial killer who is targeting children. But as he digs deeper into the case, his own government begins to suspect him of treason when a colleague frames him. Rapace is playing his conflicted wife and Oldman is the chief of police eventually assigned to investigate Hardy. Safe House director Daniel Espinosa is behind this one, working up a tale of paranoia, treachery and crime that is loosely based on real events. With Richard Price handling script chores and Joel Kinnaman, »

Blood And Grime Combine In Last Knights Trailer

10 February 2015 6:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Game of Thrones might be one of the most popular medieval-esque epics ever, as it counts the likes of Diana Rigg, Charles Dance, Natalie Dormer, and Peter Dinklage among its cast. But does it have Morgan Freeman? No? Well, Last Knights does, so you should watch it instead.

Last Knights features Morgan Freeman as…someone with a very deep and pleasant voice, who may or may not be the antagonist. It also has Clive Owen brandishing a sword and looking very dark and grimy. The plot consists of a tale of a warrior (Owen) who leads a band to avenge their dishonored master. It looks somewhat like a medieval English version of a samurai flick, which makes sense when we realize that the director is Kazuaki Kiriya, who did Goemon, based on a Japanese folk legend that sounds a lot like Robin Hood.

'Child 44' Poster Brings a Warning to Truth Seekers

10 February 2015 9:46 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

"Those who seek the truth will be silenced." The riveting Stalin-era crime thriller Child 44 will be hitting theaters this spring, and we have a powerful new poster. Based on the best-selling novel by Tom Rob Smith, this serial-killer drama follows a series of real-life child murders committed in 1953 Soviet Russia, during a supposedly "ideal" Communist state. The star-studded cast includes Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and Gary Oldman as their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up.

Child 44 chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), as a traitor. Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Woman in Gold’

9 February 2015 11:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gustav Klimt may have been celebrated for his gilded portraits of elegant Austrian ladies, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the same approach suits “Woman in Gold,” director Simon Curtis’ garish “good taste” account of how a determined Jewish exile (played by Helen Mirren) sought the restitution of a Klimt painting seized by the Nazis. Weinsteined to within an inch of its life, this compelling true story forbids any room for perfectly reasonable arthouse audiences to question Maria Altmann’s case, striking back at the anti-Semitism of the time with an equally noxious caricature of modern Austrians as law-bending, art-thieving monsters.

In other words, “My Week With Marilyn” director Curtis and screenwriter Alexi Kaye Campbell (a theater talent making his bigscreen debut) have taken the position that there’s no room for debate where rectifying the wrongs of Austria’s past is concerned, which makes for a reasonably dull ride, »

Dracula Untold Blu-Ray Review

8 February 2015 11:51 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The only legitimately scary thing about the budding Universal Monsters franchise so far is that its launching platform, Dracula Untold, has about as much bite as the Twilight saga. If that sounds harsh, well, that’s because it’s meant to – as franchise starters go, this lazy actioner is as lifeless and absent-minded as they come, never supplying even the tiny amount of intelligence that would have been necessary to buy Dracula, that most reliable of movie monsters, as a sword-wielding action hero of the armor-clad variety.

Universal had an unenviable task in bringing its classic movie monsters, from the Prince of Darkness himself to the Bride of Frankenstein, to the big screen, but one imagines that they could have done better than Dracula Untold, which so cloaks its titular bloodsucker’s origin story in generic special effects and clunky dialogue to such an extent that one begins to forget »
