Six Reasons Jennifer Aniston Could Win the Oscar for ‘Cake’

19 December 2014 2:06 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What a difference a week makes. Once considered a long shot for an Oscar nom, Jennifer Aniston has now received the holy trifecta — nominations for best actress from SAG, Golden Globe and the Critics’ Choice Awards. An Oscar nomination seems more and more likely.

It’s all the more impressive that Aniston has received such attention for a small independent film. In “Cake,” written by first-time screenwriter Patrick Tobin and directed by Daniel Barnz, she plays Claire Simmons, a woman who suffers from chronic pain and becomes obsessed with learning more about a member of her support group who committed suicide. Aniston has never been given such a meaty role on the bigscreen before, and she rewards the filmmakers’ gamble with a beautiful, heartfelt performance.

Aniston has made a lot of progress in a short time in the race and will likely continue. There are so many factors that go »

Paterson Joseph interview: Good Omens, Doctor Who, Neil Gaiman

19 December 2014 8:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paterson Joseph chats to us about Good Omens, Peep Show, being cut from Paddington, and why he'd "never say never" to playing the Doctor...

Where do you begin with Paterson Joseph? Be it on stage or the small screen, he’s popped up everywhere from Shakespeare to Survivors, from Casualty to Green Wing. To some, he’s the suave, sharply dressed and, latterly, lapsed alcoholic Alan Johnson in Peep Show. But to others, this writer included, he’ll always be the mysterious, flamboyant swashbuckler, the Marquis de Carabas, from Neil Gaiman’s rich sub-London fantasy Neverwhere.

Now, he’s appearing on BBC Radio 4 in a festive double bill of prestige productions. First, he’s giving voice to fast-food mogul and horseman of the apocalypse Famine in Good Omens, adapted from the novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Then, on New Year’s Day, he’s Pierre, the passionate protagonist »

New Years Day’s best TV

19 December 2014 6:50 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

An examination of natural flight by Attenborough in Conquest of the skies, Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench bring to life an adaptation of a Roald Dahl classic and Tottenham look to give Chelsea a run for their money at White Hart Lane. Plus: The penultimate episode of Wallander: Faceless Killers, a spate of burglaries in Mrs Brown's boys and a showing of the Clash performing on 1 January 1977

Spurs’ awful run at Stamford Bridge continued with a 3-0 drubbing there last month. In the return fixture their luck’s been no better, having failed to beat Chelsea at White Hart Lane in the past five attempts. Still, with Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen in good form, they’ll feel they have a fighting chance here. Before that, in-form Manchester United travel to Stoke City (12.30pm, Sky Sports 1), and Manchester City take on Sunderland (2.30pm, BT Sport 1). Gwilym Mumford

New Trailer For The Second Best Marigold Hotel

17 December 2014 8:41 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The Best Marigold Hotel was a charming little drama, elevated by a great cast of renowned British actors, including Bill Nighy, Judi Dench, and the one who absolutely stole the show, Maggie Smith. The gangs back for The Second Best Marigold Hotel (slightly unfortunate name there), with Richard Gere going them this time round, and judging by the new trailer below, everybody's on fine form, especially Smith and Dev Patel, promising more of the same the second time round. Not that that's a bad thing. Released: 27th February 2015 (Irl/U.K)/ 6th March 2015 (U.S.) »

‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ Checks In With New Trailer

17 December 2014 5:16 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The sequel to Fox Searchlight’s 2012 sleeper hit, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, has registered a new trailer today that pulls the curtain back a bit more than the one we saw back in August. Richard Gere, Tamsin Greig and David Strathairn are the newest guests at the Indian inn for the “elderly and beautiful” which Dev Patel and Maggie Smith are successfully running. Patel’s Sonny is looking to expand, but it’s making more claims on his time than he has available — especially considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). The original returning cast also includes Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, Ronald Pickup, Diana Hardcastle and Lillete Dubey. Directed by John Madden from an original screenplay by Ol Parker, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel opens in the UK on February 26 and in the U.S. on March 6.

Second Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Trailer

17 December 2014 1:01 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We’d say this new trailer for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is following hot on the heels of the first promo. But that was a couple of months ago, and given the style and feel of both the original film and this new one, the latest look at the sequel has more gently ambled along.Continuing the theme of old meets new and elderly British types seeking the sun, we have Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel) looking to open a chain of Best Exotic Marigold Hotels across India. He gathers the funds for at least one, and the likes of stalwart resident Muriel (Maggie Smith) plus old pals Douglas (Bill Nighy), Evelyn (Judi Dench), Madge (Celia Imrie) and Jean (Penelope Wilton) are back to help celebrate.New this time is Richard Gere, who causes much romantic consternation among the ladies...

The Gang Are Back In New Trailer For The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

16 December 2014 2:54 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first trailer for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel sequel, aptly titled The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, has arrived online courtesy of The Daily Mail (via Collider). Directed once more by John Madden, the film picks up after the events of the 2011 movie with a touch of franchise expansion in every sense of the word.

As expected, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton and Celia Imrie all reprise their roles from the first outing, along with Dev Patel as the eager Sonny. This time around, the keen entrepreneur has his heart set on turning his rustic accommodations into a chain of hotels.

One of the key components to sequel success is, of course, the addition of fresh meat! So, there’s a couple of new names thrown in to spice up proceedings in the shape of Richard Gere, Tamsin Greig and David Strathairn.

A Franchise Begins in New Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Trailer

16 December 2014 7:27 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new trailer for director John Madden’s (Shakespeare in Love) sequel The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has been released online.  The follow-up is actually a bit meta, as Dev Patel’s Sonny sets out to franchise his popular Indian hotel by expanding and opening the aptly named Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.  Nearly all of the main cast from the first film returns, plus new additions Richard Gere and David Strathairn.  I found the original to be a sweet movie with a bit of a kick thanks to Maggie Smith’s zingers, and while the nature of sequels makes me doubt this follow-up will match the quality of that first film, the prospect of seeing this cast play off of each other once again is enticing enough. Check out the new international Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, »

I never saw the first one so I have no idea if the title for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is ridiculous or perfect, but as someone not in the know it sounds ridiculous, not that that will matter considering I think all you need here is "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" and the target audience's ears will perk up after the first movie made $136.8 million worldwide on a $10 million budget and this time around the entire gang is back for more. Director John Madden is back with Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Richard Gere, Judi Dench, Celia Imrie, Dev Patel, Tamsin Greig, David Strathairn and Penelope Wilton making up the cast. Here's the plot: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 (or The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) is the expansionist dream of Sonny Kapoor, and its making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, »

In the age of everything-gets-a-sequel, even your Aunt's favorite movie "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" gets a followup. The first entry was a box office hit a couple years back, particularly overseas where it roped in $90 million all on its own. And now the series is franchising and expanding, and that's not just snarky talk from us, but the actual plot of the movie. Yep, Dev Patel is back playing Sonny, who is eager to build his hotel business, while Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Penelope Wilton have returned, with even more happening in their lives.

Spectre: Belvedere Vodka announces James Bond movie partnership

16 December 2014 4:38 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Belvedere Vodka has announced a collaboration with new James Bond movie Spectre.

The company will release two limited edition bottles in celebration of the company's partnership with the upcoming film.

Belvedere's Silver Sabre bottles will also feature a new 007 twist as part of the campaign, which will be launched in February 2015.

Professor James Chapman, author of the cultural history of James Bond Licence to Thrill, said: "Bond's drinking habits have always been a central aspect of the James Bond lifestyle.

"Fleming's Bond famously invented the 'Vesper' martini in Casino Royale, and the vodka martini was there for special occasions such as his dinner at M's club Blades (Moonraker) and his sumptuous dinner with American millionaire Mr Du Pont (Goldfinger). And of course, a world-class super villain such as Dr No would not dream of serving anything else.

Daniel Craig was back as James Bond as he filmed scenes for the upcoming movie Spectre in London today (December 15).

Kinnear donned similar attire in a black jacket, black suit and leather gloves while holding on tightly to the boat.

They were also seen zipping past the MI6 headquarters as they were being filmed by the production crew in a separate boat.

Spoiler Details In "Spectre" Script Review?

14 December 2014 12:31 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Gossip site Defamer appear to have done a massive feature about the upcoming 24th James Bond film "Spectre" and have reviewed what they claim is a copy of the early script for the "Skyfall" follow-up.

Several already revealed bits of information appear to come together in the piece including new character details. I've tried to avoid spoilers of any kind, these are the kind of tidbits that will be made clear in the film's promotional material. Potential Minor Spoilers Ahead:

Andrew Scott's character 'C' is the head of Mi-5 and battles with Mi-6 chief 'M' (Ralph Fiennes) over the future of an intelligence sharing program.

Following an early operation in Mexico City, Bond faces forced retirement when he receives a mission posthumously assigned to him by the previous M (Judi Dench).

Monica Bellucci plays the wife of a target and Bond apparently pumps her for information about a sinister masked group. »
