The King's Speech Movie Review

29 December 2010 7:41 PM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: The King’s Speech Directed By: Tom Hooper Starring: Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Gambon, Guy Pearce, Timothy Spall When considering the basics of The King’s Speech, there’s really nothing particularly alluring about it. It’s a period piece about a Duke with a stutter. Yes, that’s basically true, but there’s more to this film than can ever be conveyed in even the most detailed synopsis. The combination of spectacular performances and masterful direction turns this story into an all-consuming emotional experience. Based on a true story, Colin Firth stars as Albert, the Duke of York. As the son of King George the V (Michael Gambon), Bertie (the nickname used [...] »

Tom Hooper, “The King’s Speech” – For Your Consideration

22 December 2010 11:18 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Since its debut at the Telluride Film Festival, “The King’s Speech” has collected numerous accolades for the film, its director Tom Hooper, and the filmmaker’s illustrious cast. Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter have been recognized by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the Screen Actors Guild, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, to name but a few.

Yet, there’s one nod Hooper has not received: A vote of confidence from the royal family.

“We still don’t even know if the Queen has watched ‘The Queen,’” Hooper told me during a recent one-on-one interview. “And that was five years ago, Sadly, I think it’s unlikely that I will get to find out whether she’s watched this or not. But if you or another member of the press ever do find out, please ring me up.”

Trailer and Poster for Hammer’s ‘Wake Wood’

18 December 2010 6:23 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Hammer are following up Let Me In, their remake of Let the Right One In, with an all-new original movie starring Aiden Gillen, Eva Birtwhistle and Timothy Spall called Wake Wood. The film, according to Empire (who got the scoop on the trailer) is the story of:

…a young couple who make a Faustian pact (of sorts) to see their deceased child Alice for three days. Cue hands reaching out from the ground to pull them in, snapping, snarling, deranged dogs, and Timothy Spall doing a mean line in being a creepy evil bastard.

Our man Rob went to a screening of the film recently so expect our review as soon as the embargo is lifted! In the meantime check out the trailer bellow and our exclusive first look at the poster for the film (above).

Trailer and Stills for Hammer’s Next Horror – Wake Wood

17 December 2010 3:30 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

I wonder how long it will be before the identity of the new Hammer Studio is set, coming as they do into a very different cinematic world with a glorious, if a little archaic, reputation.

When I spoke to the CEO of Hammer Simon Oakes the film he was talking up, and naturally so, was The Woman in Black which was shooting at the time with Daniel Radcliffe, but the film he was very keen to talk about on was Wake Wood.  Starring Eva Birthistle, Aidan Gillen, and a nicely creepy Timothy Spall the film is due out soon, and today the first trailer was released into the wild.

From the limited look we get in the trailer below shades emerge of The Wicker Man and Matthew Hopkins: Witchfinder General in this tale of an offer made to a grieving couple to spend three days with their murdered daughter. There »

Trailer Debut - Hammer's The Wake Wood

17 December 2010 1:03 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It's so good to have Hammer Films up and running again. With quality releases like Let Me In and killer material in the works like The Woman in Black, it's easy to stay excited. Just in case you needed another reason to be all sweaty with anticipation ... dig on the trailer for the next Hammer film out of the gate, The Wake Wood!

Directed and co-written by David Keating and starring Aidan Gillen, Eva Birthistle, and Timothy Spall, The Wake Wood tells the tale of a couple still grieving over the death of nine-year-old Alice, their only child who was killed at the jaws of a crazed dog. Vet Patrick and pharmacist Louise relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood, where they learn of a pagan ritual that will allow them three more days with Alice. The couple find the idea disturbing and exciting in equal measure, but once »

Hammer's Next Big Horror: Trailer for 'Wake Wood'!

17 December 2010 11:37 AM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

After Let Me In, I have high hopes for Hammer Films' future projects, especially their thriller Wake Wood, David Keating's pic that received high praises out of last November's Afm in Santa Monica, CA. North American rights recently acquired by Chicago-based Mpi Media Group, the UK are the first to get their hands on the trailer that rocks some pretty awesome footage. I'm so freaking excited for this one! The plot follows a couple whose new neighbors in a remote rural community introduce them to a pagan ritual to attempt to bring back their dead daughter. The film was shot in Ireland. Aidan Gillen, Eva Birthistle, Timothy Spall and Ella Connolly star. Dark Sky plans a theatrical release in spring 2011, followed by DVD and VOD. »

Exclusive: Wake Wood Trailer

17 December 2010 7:51 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Not heard of Wake Wood? Well, put it this way: it's a Hammer Horror film, and it features buckets of blood, crazed dogs, and arcane rituals - and we've got exclusive stills and a trailer for it. Luverly jubbly.Starring Aidan Gillen (still best known for being The Mayor from The Wire), Eva Birtwhistle (Ae Fond Kiss...) and Timothy Spall (you know, Timothy Spall), it's the story of a young couple who make a Faustian pact (of sorts) to see their deceased child Alice for three days.Cue hands reaching out from the ground to pull them in, snapping, snarling, deranged dogs, and Timothy Spall doing a mean line in being a creepy evil bastard.And though it's always lovely to have an exclusive trailer from a resurgent classic British horror studio to show off, couldn't you have done something about the titles, guys?A minor quibble, admittedly, and hardly »

Film Review: Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush Star in Confident ‘The King’s Speech’

17 December 2010 7:11 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Chicago – Tom Hooper’s “The King’s Speech” has been barreling through the awards season with a number of significant nominations, including six from the Chicago Film Critics Association just today. I understand why. The film does nothing wrong. It features confident production values and good performances but never reaches the peak of excellence for this critic. “The King’s Speech” is a good film that’s been inflated by some viewers to great even if it doesn’t quite deserve the throne.

The words I think of in conjunction with “The King’s Speech” are all relatively positive. It’s a nice film. It’s well-made. And its ensemble is flawless. At the same time, it’s nothing that you have not seen before. It’s not very ambitious. And it’s surprisingly cold — not the kind of film that sticks in the memory, especially in a season »

New ‘King’s Speech’ Poster Reigns Online

16 December 2010 11:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Here’s a new poster for The King’s Speech, the much anticipated royal period biopic from Tom Hooper, director of last year’s The Damned United.

Colin Firth has been highly praised for his role of King George VI of Britain, who employs a speech therapist to help overcome his stammer. Geoffrey Rush (who plays said therapist) has been winning plaudits too, and it’s the image of both actors which appears to be dominating the marketing drive, despite a rather impressive ensemble including Helena Bonham Carter, Guy Pearce, Michael Gambon and Timothy Spall.

The film opens in the UK on 7th January.

SAG Injustice: When a Nomination is Still a Snub

16 December 2010 11:01 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In the afterglow of the SAG nominations, when publicists, stars and pundits are all aglow with congratulatory messaging of every sort and critics are bemoaning the fate of talented but snubbed performances, one annual dismaying group of snubs always slips through the cracks. I'm talking about the people who contributed to the movies nominated as Best Ensemble but weren't actually included when the nomination was awarded.  The nominated ensemble casts of The Fighter, The King's Speech, Black Swan, The Social Network and The Kids Are All Right do not, in all cases, fully represent the acting achievements within the film.

The following actors were not nominated in "ensemble"

Black Swan ~ This nomination includes all those demented raven-haired beauties: Natalie Portman, Barbara Hershey, Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder and the man fucking with their pretty heads: Vincent Cassell. Noticeably absent: Benjamin Millepied, the principle male dancer should have also been listed. While »

‘The Fighter’ & ‘The King’s Speech’ Lead Screen Actors Guild Award Nominees

16 December 2010 10:09 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Today the nominations for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards was released. The King’s Speech and The Fighter received the most nominations, with four each. Thankfully the Guild seems to know what they are doing unlike The Golden Globes who pretty much screwed up all the nominations.

The nominees here are usually a very strong indication of how the acting award nominees will play out at the Oscars. King’s Speech has long been an Oscar favourite, but David O. Russell’s The Fighter has gained considerable steam in the past few weeks. Last year, 19 out of 20 SAG nominees went to the Oscars as well so you can be sure that The Fighter and King’s Speech will get a best picture nomination. The 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on January 20th. See the complete list below.

SAG Nominees Announced - Chris Colfer Up for Lifetime Achievement Award

16 December 2010 7:12 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Okay, totally kidding about the Colfer Lifetime Achievement Award thing - that will be going to Ernest Borgnine. But does it seem to you that the kid who plays Kurt Hummel is getting an awful lot of awards season love? (And wouldn't McHale's Navy have been so much better with him in it?)

The latest outpouring of Colfer acclaim comes from the Screen Actors Guild who announced their 17th annual SAG nominees this morning.

The Glee cast is up for a comedy ensemble award, but Colfer was the only cast member other than Jane Lynch to be recognized individually. And given who he's up against he's almost certain to be the frontrunner!

Another bit of good news for a Glbt favorite, The Kids Are All Right, scored individual acting nods for Annete Bening, Mark Rufallo, and also a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast.

Screen Actors Guild Award Nominees Announced & It’s Less “Colorful” Than The Golden Globes

16 December 2010 6:44 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

The complete list of nominations for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards follows below. The ceremony will be held on January 30th, 2011.

Nothing really to highlight here, unfortunately. SAG voters apparently didn’t care for Halle Berry’s performance as much as the Golden Globes did, because she’s not on this list. And neither is Idris Elba, who was also nominated for a Golden Globe. The cast of For Colored Girls got no love either.

The significance here is that SAG nominees and winners are voted on by members of the union – essentially, their peers.

But one thing that should be obvious by now is that the Oscar race is going to come down to 4 films and the performances in those films: The Social Network, Black Swan, The King’s Speech, and The Fighter. I still have to see the last 2.

Here’s the full list:
