Watch: New 'Testament of Youth' Trailer Starring Kit Harrington and Alicia Vikander

20 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you haven't yet seen Ex Machina get out there and do so as it expands even further this weekend. Along with an overall great film you'll also get to see a great performance from Alicia Vikander whose name first came to most people's attention with A Royal Affair a couple years later, but after Ex Machina and this summer's Testament of Youth her stock is likely to continue to rise and, who knows, maybe an Oscar nomination in the near future. Today we have a new trailer for the latter film I mentioned there, Testament of Youth, a World War I feature adapted from the memoir by Vera Brittain played here by one Alicia Vikander opposite Kit Harrington ("Game of Thrones"). Here's the plot: Vera, irrepressible, intelligent and free-minded, overcomes the prejudices of her family and hometown, to win a scholarship to Oxford. With everything to live for, she »

Little Boy – The Review

23 April 2015 4:32 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

So, what’s the cure for overloading on the all-depressing news (now bombarding you with 24-hour cable channels along with the “interweb”)? Well, a time machine would be great. Imagine pulling the lever on Rod Taylor’s 1960 model or Doc Brown’s DeLorean-based 1985 sweet ride (thirty years, can’t be!). Too bad they don’t exist, but buying a ticket at the multiplex can whisk you away for a couple of hours or so, right? The feel-good nostalgia flick has become almost as popular a genre as the haunted house spook show or the sports “underdog” story. The 1940’s have proved a most popular destination for, well over forty years (remember Summer Of 42 back in 71’?). It’s been the setting for a very recent Oscar winner, The Imitation Game, and even a big superhero blockbuster with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Hey, we just visited it two weeks ago in »

Now that the film has already seen a release in the UK, it's time for Us audiences to get familiar with director James Kent’s new film Testament of Youth. The film is based on Vera Brittain’s First World War memoir of the same name and stars Alicia Vikander as Vera Brittain. Vikander is joined by Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington who plays her fiancé, Roland Leighton.

Exclusive Video Interview: Michael Rapaport And Jakob Salvati Talk Little Boy

20 April 2015 6:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Little Boy takes us back to the days of World War II and into the life of an 8-year old boy named Pepper Flint Busbee (played by newcomer Jakob Salvati). Pepper is nicknamed Little Boy because of his diminutive size, and as a result, he’s the target for the town bullies.

He ends up escaping those troubles, however, with his dad James (Michael Rapaport), as they employ their vivid imaginations to go on a number of incredible adventures. It’s not long though before the real world comes crashing down on them and Pepper’s father is drafted to fight in the war, leaving the young boy determined to end the conflict and bring his father home.

Last week during the film’s press day in La, I had the chance to speak with both leads. During our interview, Michael talked about how important it is for people to »

CinemaCon: First Everest, Sisters and London Has Fallen Posters

19 April 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Plenty of posters are being set up at CinemaCon right now as studios try to woo exhibitors, and Steve is on the floor snapping plenty of photos. The first Everest poster banks on the outstanding cast—Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Emily Watson, Keira Knightley, and Sam Worthington—along with the tagline, “Human Beings Are Not Meant to Survive at the Cruising Altitude of a 747.” I cannot argue with that statement. Everest opens September 18th. Here’s the official synopsis: Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.  Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival. »

Film Review: ‘Little Boy’

15 April 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

God helps those who help not only themselves, but also the less fortunate in their midst — or so goes the tidy moral logic of “Little Boy,” a cloying and callous WWII-era parable about how faith can move mountains, overcome prejudice, and even rob death of its sting. Making an ambitious follow-up to his Toronto audience award-winning debut, “Bella” (2007), writer-director Alejandro Monteverde brings a sledgehammer touch to the story of a small-town runt who hopes that his string of good deeds will bring his beloved father home from the front lines. Insofar as subtlety is rarely deemed a virtue where the vast majority of “faith-based” entertainment is concerned, this relentlessly manipulative drama just might connect with its target audience, even if saddled with a PG-13 rating that exec producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett lobbied unsuccessfully to have downgraded to a more family-friendly PG.

MipTV: A+E Studios Intl. Debuts ‘Marilyn Monroe’ Drama

London — A+E Studios Intl. is to launch “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe,” which stars Kelli Garner, Susan Sarandon, Emily Watson and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, at next week’s television market MipTV in Cannes.

The two-parter is based on J. Randy Taraborrelli’s New York Times bestseller of the same name. It follows a young Norma Jeane Mortenson as she battles a lonely, loveless existence with an absent mother. Despite the odds, she blossoms into a smart, ambitious woman and reinvents herself as Marilyn Monroe.

As her fame grows, all three of her marriages crumble publicly. Marilyn is unable to control the onset of mental illness inherited from her mother, Gladys (Sarandon) — a woman she loves, hates and tries to save. Although kept secret, Gladys remained a vital and troubling influence.

The show, which has a four-hour running time, is produced by Asylum Entertainment for Lifetime Television.

Wonderful First Trailer For Julian Jarrold’s ‘A Royal Night Out’

16 March 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This trailer has almost sped by without me noticing but I think it deserves a wider audience as A Royal Night Out looks set to delve into the history of our Queen Elizabeth but also fitting perfectly in with the 70th Anniversary of V.E. Day this year.

The film is set on V.E. Day, 1945 and across the world, people are celebrating the end of the war. Two teenage sisters are allowed out at night for the first time to join the party but these two young souls aren’t your every day youth, their home is Buckingham Palace and our two teenagers are Princess Margaret (Bel Powley) and the future Queen of England, Elizabeth II, played by Sarah Gadon.

Based on untold true events and directed by Julian Jarrold, A Royal Night Out looks like a lot of fun and feels like it’s got a good heart, »

Mark your calendars, make your dinner party arrangements, and sharpen your carving knives: NBC's Hannibal Season 3 will premiere on Thursday, June 4th, at 10:00pm Est.

The announcement was made via the show's Facebook page, on which a photo of the cycle-riding, on-the-run (presumably in Florence, Italy) Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) was posted (image shown below).

It was recently revealed that Zachary Quinto will star in a minimum of one episode in the upcoming third season of Hannibal. Quinto (NBC's The Slap, Spock in Star Trek: Into Darkness, American Horror Story: Asylum, Heroes) will play a "patient of Bedelia’s (Gillian Anderson)."
