13 February 2017 2:24 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Weinstein Company has delayed the release date of “Tulip Fever” — again. The period drama starring Alicia Vikander and Christoph Waltz had previously moved from July 15, 2016 to February 24, 2017. The company confirmed Monday that the movie will now be released later in the year, but declined to comment further or specify when in the year the film might hit theaters.

Adapted from Deborah Moggach’s novel of the same name, “Tulip Fever” stars Vikander as a young woman who falls in love with an artist (Dane DeHaan) who has been commissioned to paint her portrait. Zach Galifianakis, Judi Dench, Jack O’Connell, Holliday Grainger, Cara Delevingne and Tom Hollander all co-star in the film, which takes place in the 17th-century.

The film’s release date in other territories — including the UK, where the film was shot — remains unknown. »

The Week in Star Wars – The Last Jedi plot details, Mark Hamill defends prequels, Rogue One Blu-ray details and more

12 February 2017 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Week in Star Wars is back with some possible plot details from Star Wars: The Last Jedi as well as details on the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Blu-ray, Star Wars Land and more…

Let’s kick things off this week with Star Wars: The Last Jedi and although Josh Gad and Judi Dench have been unable to get answers about the mystery behind the title [see them try here and here], Disney’s Bob Iger has shed some light on the subject. After seeing an advanced screening of the movie, Iger said it was “a great chapter in the iconic Skywalker family saga”. Now, does this confirm that Rey is in fact Luke’s daughter, or is this a hint that Mark Hamill will be the focus of the film..?

…Speaking of Mark Hamill, the actor recently spoke out against the fans for bad-mouthing the prequel trilogy – particuarly around the performance of young Jake Lloyd. »

Even Dame Judi Dench is pestering Daisy Ridley for Star Wars: The Last Jedi spoilers

10 February 2017 4:47 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the best efforts of Josh Gad, Daisy Ridley seems to be keeping any and all details on Star Wars: The Last Jedi close to her chest. However, that hasn’t stopped Ridley and Gad’s Murder on the Orient Express co-star and British screen legend Dame Judi Dench from taking a crack at prising some info from the young actress; take a look for yourself…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set for release on December 15th 2017 and sees returning cast members Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Peter Mayhew and Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar), Mike Quinn (Nien Nunb), Simon Pegg (Unkar »

Great Job, Internet!: Now Dame Judi Dench is trying to pry Last Jedi info from Daisy Ridley

9 February 2017 12:26 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Look, Josh Gad is fucking trying. The latest in his ongoing series of duplicitous attempts to get Daisy Ridley to reveal Last Jedi plot details has come out, and he has called in no higher authority than Dame Judi Dench for help. The three all have supporting roles in Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming adaptation of Murder On The Orient Express, but Gad does not give a shit about that movie. Dench appears in the video suddenly, with the hushed, omniscient presence of a Bene Gesserit witch, but uses her powers here for good, asking Ridley, point blank, if she is the titular last Jedi, if Snoke is Palpatine, and more.

In a twist ending, Ridley cannot say no to Dame Judi Dench; it is unclear if anyone could deny the Dame. She gets what she wants, and in this case, it is plot details about The Last Jedi. Perhaps in »

Star Wars The Last Jedi: Daisy Ridley Grilled by Dame Judi Dench on Spoilers

9 February 2017 2:42 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Star Wars The Last Jedi has wrapped up filming which has lead to an obscene amount of speculation and people trying to get as many spoilers as possible.   Some of the key plot points people are trying to find out are Rey’s parentage, the identity of Supreme Leader Snoke, and Kylo Ren’s future destiny in the franchise.  This means that all cast members, including star Daisy Ridley, are getting barraged with questions. In an ongoing video series that Josh Gad has with Daisy Ridley, he brought in one of the most powerful actresses in the world, Dame Judi Dench, to grill

Now Dame Judi Dench Is Interrogating Daisy Ridley About Star Wars: The Last Jedi

8 February 2017 5:38 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Unlike Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi hasn't suffered from any major plot or concept art leaks, and while we've seen a handful of set photos, they shed no light whatsoever about what we should expect. It's understandable then that Josh Gad is trying to uncover some answers as he shoots the Kenneth Branagh helmed Murder on the Orient Express alongside actress Daisy Ridley.  Well, after trying and failing twice to learn more about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the actor has now enlisted Dame Judi Dench to quiz the young actress on what exactly is going on with the movie. Seeing the iconic Brit push Ridley for answers on who the Last Jedi is and whether Emperor Palpatine is downright hilarious (and bizarre), and by the time all is said and done, it looks like she succeeds! Unfortunately, it's then that the video cuts off, »

Josh Gad has enlisted some help in his ongoing quest to get Daisy Ridley to spill the beans about this winter's Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This time, the actress who plays Rey has to face off against not only Gad's all-seeing camera, but the steely glare of none other than Dame Judi Dench.

The latest video — the third to date in a series that started last month — ups the ante in the war of wills between the two stars of the upcoming Murder on the Orient Express, by bringing in a third actor from the Kenneth »

Daisy Ridley Reveals ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Plot Secrets … Sort Of (Watch)

8 February 2017 10:53 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The plot of the upcoming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is one of most tightly kept secrets in Hollywood.

But that hasn’t stopped “Star Wars” superfan Josh Gad from grilling (on camera) his “Murder on the Orient Express” costar Daisy Ridley about the plot details. (Ridley plays one of the main protagonists, Rey, in the new “Star Wars” films).

Gad’s first attempt to extract information Episode VIII began two weeks ago. He invited Ridley into his trailer.

“Who are the last Jedi,” Gad asked, referring to the film’s title.

“We’re not doing this,” a flustered Ridley responded. “I can’t ask you about ‘Frozen 2’,” she added, referencing the upcoming sequel to Disney’s 2013 hit in which Gad voices Olaf.

Last week, Gad invited Ridley over again, under the guise or rehearsing lines for “Orient Express.” She quickly realized that it was another attempt by him to »

Watch Judi Dench Interrogate Daisy Ridley for Star Wars 8 Spoilers

8 February 2017 10:34 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For the last few weeks, fans have been treated to a pair of hilarious videos from the set of Murder on the Orient Express, where Josh Gad tries to trick his co-star Daisy Ridley into answering his questions about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The first video surfaced on Josh Gad's Instagram two weeks ago, just after the announcement that Star Wars 8 will be called Star Wars: The Last Jedi, with Josh Gad using a supposed script meeting to grill Daisy Ridley with questions about what the title means, and if her character Rey is in fact The Last Jedi. Last week, he tried again, with another video on Facebook, but he had no such luck in getting his questions answered. Today, the actor brought in some help, with Dame Judi Dench asking the questions this time around.

This week, Josh Gad posted the video to Twitter, which starts »

Star Wars: Judi Dench Presses Daisy Ridley For The Last Jedi Details

8 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

As great as movies are, sometimes the best part about the whole experience is the waiting. It gives audiences time to revisit other films to mine for details, as well as speculate as to what’s to come. It also gives fans time to pore over every last detail of every single reveal pushed out by the studio. Without about, the Star Wars franchise is one of these films that capitalizes on this experience, as there are few franchises that would get as much traction over something as trivial as a silly title reveal.

In the time since Star Wars Episode VIII was revealed as Star Wars: The Last Jedi, fans have been treated to a couple videos of actor Josh Gad prodding actress Daisy Ridley for details regarding the upcoming film. In a constant display of her professionalism, Ridley has remained tightlipped on the subject, and so far Gad’s efforts have revealed nothing. »

Mel Brooks to be honoured with BAFTA Fellowship at the British Academy Film Awards

8 February 2017 8:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced that legendary actor and filmmaker Mel Brooks is set to be honoured with the BAFTA Fellowship at the Ee British Academy Film Awards this Sunday, February 12th.

“I am not overwhelmed, but I am definitely whelmed by this singular honor,” said Brooks. “To be included among such iconic talents is absolutely humbling. In choosing me for the 2017 Fellowship I think that BAFTA has made a strangely surprising yet ultimately wise decision.”

Mel Brooks is a truly unique and multi-talented filmmaker,” added Amanda Berry, Chief Executive of BAFTA. “We are absolutely thrilled to award him the Fellowship, »

Let It Shine: why isn't Gary Barlow's talent show interested in acting?

3 February 2017 8:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The contestants can belt out a tune but can they cut it in musical theatre? The stage show cast from the BBC1 series will fall flat if it doesn’t find acting talent

Reality TV and talent shows don’t seem to like theatre very much. On The X Factor, nothing is more likely to make Simon Cowell sneer than a performance that he deems too “musical theatre”. Last autumn, E4’s Stage School, set in a performing arts college, was a reality show that had absolutely no grasp on the reality of theatre training. The programme’s fame-hungry prima donnas seemed to believe that making a career in theatre has nothing to do with talent and hard work and everything to do with pouting and behaving badly.

Such shows reinforce the idea that acting is easy and that talent, training and technique don’t matter. As if anyone can »
