Cannes archives: Mike Leigh tops Screen's Jury Grid 2010

2 May 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

In the lead up to Cannes, we revisit the 2010 Screen Jury Grid and reflect on what critics around the world had to say about the films in Competition.

Each year, Screen calls upon its international jury of critics to cast their judgement on the films in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival and rounds up the results in the ever-popular Screen Jury Grid.

In 2010, top marks from the critics went to Mike Leigh’s romantic drama Another Year, which scored a strong 3.4 out of 4. The ensemble drama was Leigh’s fourth film in Competition at Cannes, including Secrets and Lies, which won the top prize in 1996. 

Leigh has since been up for the Palme d’Or with biopic Mr Turner, which starred Timothy Spall as eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner, for which he won best actor at the festival in 2014.

But in 2010, the Palme d’Or went to fantasy drama Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall »

Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf Revealed in A Series of Unfortunate Events

26 April 2016 4:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since beloved actor Neil Patrick Harris was cast as Count Olaf in Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events, fans have been curious about what the actor will look like in full costume. Now that production is under way in Vancouver, the first set photos have arrived, and fans may have to do a double-take, because Nph is barely recognizable as the nefarious Count Olaf. Filming has been under way all this month, but today is the first time we've gotten to see the actor on set.

VanCity Buzz reports that the scene involves Neil Patrick Harris getting out of a vehicle before entering a building to purchase a new disguise. The images also feature a number of other unidentified actors, including two older females dressed in identical costumes, and a man whose oversized coat has two large hooks attached where his hands would be. According to the show's IMDb page, »

Barging Round Britain With John Sergeant review – how does your hat blow off at 2mph?

22 April 2016 10:20 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The former political correspondent KOs a boxing champ while pootling through mills, locks and a Refreshers factory

Celebrity barging now seems to be a thing on television. Prunella Scales and Timothy West have done it: canal journeys around Britain and abroad. Timothy Spall – perhaps unwisely – went round the outside of Britain in his barge, with his wife, Shane. Now John Sergeant, who has already done some, is off again. Here he is, chugging along the Peak Forest Canal from Buxworth to Ashton-Under-Lyme at two and half miles an hour, wearing the only (as far as I know) hat named after a canal.

Oops. It – the Panama – has blown off into the water. Never mind, he packed a spare. That’s the way Barging Round Britain With John Sergeant (ITV) goes: a bit of bumbling and fumbling, mostly intentional, plus a lot of jolly good nature and a genuine interest and »

Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation by Cecil Beaton

This week marks the 90th birthday of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born in 1926. The Queen celebrates two birthdays each year: her actual birthday on the 21st of April and her official birthday on the second Saturday in June. (Trooping of the Colours)

She is the world’s oldest reigning monarch as well as Britain’s longest-lived. In 2015, she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, to become the longest-reigning British monarch and the longest-reigning queen regent in world history.

Looking to celebrate her Majesty’s birthday? First, everyone rise for the national anthem of the United Kingdom.

God save our gracious Queen!

Long live our noble Queen!

God save the Queen!

Send her victorious,

Happy and glorious,

Long to reign over us:

God save the Queen!

Sky’s Drama Department Productions Grab Global Viewers

1 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

From polar bears to poltergeists, Sky’s focus on exclusive high-end TV drama is helping the satellite broadcaster retain its momentum in the face of keen competition.

In common with Netflix and Amazon, Sky is plowing large amounts of coin and marketing heft into television fiction. The accent is on high production values underpinned by celebrated writers, actors and showrunners. Often there is a pan-European canvas to work on.

A year ago, Sky’s much-hyped Arctic thriller “Fortitude” was the first show to premiere simultaneously in around 22 million homes across Sky in the U.K., Ireland, Italy, Germany and Austria. “Fortitude” has sold to 170 territories. Work is under way on season two.

Meanwhile, “The Enfield Haunting,” above, starring Timothy Spall, broke audience records for the Sky Living channel in Blighty.

At Sky Deutschland, its first-ever original drama, “100 Code,” achieved 1.8 million views for the local Sky Atlantic network.

Time Marches On In Latest Trailer For Disney’s Alice Through The Looking Glass

29 March 2016 9:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Disney has today premiered what will likely be one of, if not the final trailer for James Bobin’s fantasy offshoot Alice Through the Looking Glass – and it’s a doozy.

Welcoming Lewis Carroll’s indelible creations back onto the silver screen once more, it is Mia Wasikowska’s title character that is sent off on a journey to Underland, encountering old faces, new faces and the very essence of time itself. Playing the part of the latter character is Sacha Baron Cohen – part human, part clock – who proves instrumental in Alice’s quest as she tumbles further and further down the rabbit hole.

Along for that time-bending escapade are Helena Bonhan Carter and Anne Hathaway as the Red Queen and White Queen, respectively, while Alice Through the Looking Glass will also feature Johnny Depp in the role of the Mad Hatter, Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat, Michael Sheen’s White Rabbit, »

The actor on Harold Pinter, a great Marlon Brando documentary, a Peter Ackroyd murder mystery and Shane Meadows’s This Is England saga

Daniel Mays, 37, grew up in Epping, Essex, and trained at the Italia Conti Academy and Rada. Not long after graduating, he was cast by Mike Leigh in All Or Nothing and later as Imelda Staunton’s cocky son, Sid, in Vera Drake. His impressive list of screen credits, including roles in Atonement and Made in Dagenham, Red Riding and Ashes to Ashes, is matched by an equally weighty stage CV – Mays has appeared in six productions at the Royal Court.

The Conjuring 2: Expect the Worst (In a Good way)

21 March 2016 9:27 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This June will see the release of the highly anticipated follow-up to hit horror outing The Conjuring, which means that once more we’ll be opening the past case files of famed paranormal investigative couple Ed and Lorraine Warren. The sequel is based on the true life events that occurred in a home in north England in the late 70’s, which was better known at the time as the Enfield Poltergeist, and revolves around the time that the Warrens visited the home and met with the family to investigate this unsettling event.

Here’s hoping that 2016 will be another great year in horror. It’s obvious that horror is already influencing a number of other mediums at the moment with horror on TV in particular enjoying huge success. Even the gaming industry is seeing a rise in genre-based franchises including the release of the Outlast sequel and the Scary Friends »
