'Beyond' Baddie Just A One-Film Alien

15 April 2016 10:47 PM, PDT | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

There's warriors like Christopher Lloyd's Kruge in "Star Trek III: The Search For Spock," and then there are talky villains like Khan in both "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" (Ricardo Montalban) and "Star Trek: Into Darkness" (Benedict Cumberbatch). And then, of course, you have talky warriors like Christopher Plummer's Chang in "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country."For Krall, a new villain brought to "Star Trek: Beyond" by Idris Elba, the Enterprise is going head-to-head with someone who is pure warrior. And it won't be good for her crew."What's interesting about him is that he has a real beef with what the Enterprise stands for," Elba recently told Entertainment Weekly's Darren Franich. "Krall's a character who's deeply steeped in hatred in my opinion, a well-earned hatred for the Federation."In »

Happy Birthday, Ewan McGregor

31 March 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Kieran, here. Today, we celebrate the birthday of one of the screen’s most magnetic (and gallingly non-Oscar nominated) stars, Ewan McGregor.

Looking at McGregor’s filmography, there are definite peaks and valleys though that's to be expected with any performer who has been active for over two decades. For McGregor, a lot of the valleys occurred in recent years, but man…those peaks are impressive, aren’t they? The best of Ewan McGregor makes us hopeful for what the future holds for the talented Scotsman. He makes his feature-film directorial debut this year with American Pastoral, which he also stars in alongside Jennifer Connelly, Dakota Fanning and “Orange is the New Black” breakout star (and awards magnet) Uzo Aduba. He also has a sequel to Trainspotting, the role that put him on the map, in the works. Rather than speculating about who he should work with, what projects he »

Jacob Tremblay and Room sweep the Canadian Screen Awards

14 March 2016 8:14 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Jacob Tremblay has taken over this awards season, and now he has a "Candy" to go along with it.

Last night at the Canadian Screen Awards, host Norm MacDonald proposed that the trophy should now be named the "Candy" in honour of Canadian comedy legend, John Candy. It was definitely an appropriate suggestion, and the first to go along with it was nine-year-old Room star, Jacob Tremblay, who continued to win all of our hearts, especially after beating out the likes of Christopher Plummer and Rossif Sutherland, for the Best Actor in a Leading Role trophy for playing Jack in Room.

Room swept the night, as it also took home Best Picture, Best Director for Lenny Abrahamson, Best Actress forBrie Larson, and Best Adapted Screenplay for Emma Donoghue. The film was a Canadian/Irish co-production, which also saw much love from the Oscars, where it was nominated for Best Picture, »

14 March 2016 4:23 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Irish-Canadian co-production took home nine prizes at Canada’s equivalent of the Oscars.

Irish-Canadian co-production Room dominated the Canadian Screen Awards on Sunday night, winning nine prizes including best film for producers David Gross and Ed Guiney.

Lead actress Brie Larson repeated her triumph at this year’s Oscars and BAFTAs by winning best actress, while breakout star Jacob Tremblay took best actor.

Accepting the award from veteran Christopher Plummer, 77 years his senior, the young actor said: “This is amazing. I can’t believe a kid like me won against a bunch of amazing talent. Christopher Plummer, you’re a legend.”

The film also took awards for director Lenny Abrahamson, Emma Donoghue’s adapted screenplay, and Joan Allen’s supporting performance, as well as prizes for editing, make-up and production design.

Elsewhere, Irish romantic drama Brooklyn took two awards, for Michael Brook’s original score and Yves Bélanger’s cinematography.

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Tops Newcomers While 'Zootopia' Crosses $400 Million Worldwide

13 March 2016 9:26 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Disney's Zootopia dominated once again this weekend, bringing in an estimated $50 million in its sophomore session, pushing the film over $140 million domestically in its first ten days of release. Leading the weekend's four new wide releases is 10 Cloverfield Lane with a strong opening weekend performance while The Perfect Match, The Young Messiah and The Brothers Grimsby settled in slots six through eight in the weekend top ten. Dropping only 33.4%, Zootopia is the #1 film for the second weekend in a row as its domestic cume has now climbed to $142.6 million. Internationally the animated feature took in an additional $83.1 million, which is actually up 25% from last weekend. The jump is largely due to the estimated $56.5 million it brought in this weekend in China, an increase of a whopping 139% as its global cume now stands at $431.3 million. As far as the weekend's new releases are concerned, 10 Cloverfield Lane entered its opening weekend with incredibly strong reviews. »

A Potent Thriller with Some Big Surprises: Remember

11 March 2016 5:59 AM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

As a longtime admirer of filmmaker Atom Egoyan, I was eager to see his latest effort, all the more so since it stars Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau, Bruno Ganz, and Dean Norris. All I knew about it going in was that it dealt, in some way, with the Holocaust. I am now proselytizing for Remember and fear that it will be identified—and oversimplified—as a Holocaust story when in fact it’s a taut, original, and provocative thriller. Yes, the leading characters are connected by their experiences in concentration camps during World War II, but this is a modern-day mystery where the pieces take time to fall into place, right up to the final scene. That is what makes Benjamin August’s...

Review: Atom Egoyan's Frustrating 'Remember' Starring Christopher Plummer, Bruno Ganz, Dean Norris And Martin Landau

10 March 2016 2:46 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If there's a reason, aside from the obvious physical ones, that we haven't had too many oldster revenge thrillers, perhaps it's that revenge as a concept seems one that age, experience, and accruing wisdom might reconsider. After all, living well is the best revenge, if not exactly the most cinematic. But the irresistible premise of Atom Egoyan's "Remember," in which Christopher Plummer plays Zev, a German Jew pushing 90, who embarks on a hunt for the Auschwitz Block Commander responsible for the murder of his family during the Holocaust, justifies the shelving of this concern with what should be a compelling and moving further twist: Zev is not only frail in body, he is frail in mind and memory. So whatever it was that kept him from taking action before now is no longer an issue: his senile dementia has caused him to forget it. The pathos of this situation is clear, »

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “10 Cloverfield Lane”: Films to see in March

7 March 2016 11:37 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It really doesn’t feel like it’s already March, does it? The Oscars have come and gone, leaving us really into the thick of 2016. The end of this month will mark the end of the first quarter of the year. Go figure. Anyway, this is coming a bit late, but I still wanted to list what’s going to be hitting (or has already hit) theaters this month that’s really of note. There’s some pretty big films coming our way, so the blockbuster season isn’t all that far off, with indie counter programming matching it beat for beat. As such, there’s no shortage of quality movie options in cinemas, as you’ll see below… Here now are the ten best bets for March viewing: 10. Remember – The latest film from Atom Egoyan opens this Friday and is pretty interesting, I must say. Christopher Plummer stars as »

Oscars Facts: 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Academy Awards

26 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's almost here -- the 88th Academy Awards finally airs this Sunday, and we're counting down the minutes.

We've already given you our Oscar predictions, and now we're bringing you some of the best (and, um, craziest) facts about Hollywood's biggest awards show. From the first Best Actor winner, to the "one dollar" Oscar rule, here are 25 things you (probably) don't know about the Oscars.

1. The youngest Oscar winner was Tatum O'Neal (above), who won Best Supporting Actress for "Paper Moon" (1973) when she was only 10 years old. Shirley Temple won the short-lived Juvenile Award at 6 years old.

2. After winning Best Actress for "Cabaret" (1972), Liza Minnelli became (and still is) the only Oscar winner whose parents both earned Oscars. Her mother, Judy Garland, received an honorary award in 1939 and her father, Vincente Minnelli, won Best Director for "Gigi" (1958).

3. Nameplates for all potential winners are prepared ahead of time; in 2014, the Academy made 215 of them! »

Film Review: Remember

24 February 2016 3:34 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ When it comes to the Holocaust remembering is a serious matter: a moral imperative in fact. However, as the years pass, living memory inevitably diminishes with the death of the survivors, witnesses and the perpetrators. That which must not be forgotten, never forgotten, eventually will be. Life becomes history. In director Atom Egoyan's Remember, the imperative to remember is all the more urgent as the elderly protagonist, a 90-year-old Jew and survivor of the camps Zev Gottman (Christopher Plummer), also suffers from senile dementia. We first meet Zev in the up-scale nursing home where he lives comfortably as a resident. Zev has recently lost his wife, Ruth, but her death spurs him on to complete a mission known only to him and his wheelchair-bound friend Max (Martin Landau, pictured right).

Review: Remember, Christopher Plummer Searches For A Very Particular Nazi

11 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

It's been a while since one can be super excited about a new Atom Egoyan film. His last two, Devil's Knot, a film about the West Memphis Three case, and Captive, a chilly thriller about a child sex ring, found few champions. It's all the more reason to applaud Remember, a return to form of sorts that echoes the handheld looseness of Egoyan's earliest films like Next of Kin. The key to the enjoyment lies in a compelling turn by Christopher Plummer playing a man with dementia who's sent off to hunt down a Nazi commander of Auschwitz. Playing out like an extended road movie, the film is sentimental without being trite. Along the way the film explores issues of loss intertwined with the human...
