Go behind the scenes of the autumn's most gripping disaster movie Everest in this featurette

28 July 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A new behind-the-scenes featurette for Everest brings you to the mountains of Nepal for an incredible adventure.

The upcoming disaster epic tells the true story of 1996's Mount Everest disaster, when eight climbers became trapped in a brutal blizzard.

Universal Pictures' latest profile of Everest follows the actors and filmmakers on set in the snow-covered mountains of Nepal.

"It's a big-scale movie and it's not easy to shoot," star Jason Clarke says. "You've got to go to Nepal. That means you've got to shoot in the mountains. You need real weather and snow."

"[Director Baltasar Kormákur] wanted us to experience the elements," Jake Gyllenhaal adds. "He pushed us in that way."

Everest also features Josh Brolin, Robin Wright, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Sam Worthington in its story of the rescue attempts to save eight trapped climbers.

The movie will open in Us and UK cinemas on September 18. »

New Trailer for Universal Pictures’ Everest Released

16 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

A new trailer for the film Everest was released the other day, and it looks like it might be that rare “must-see” IMAX movie. I know you’ve probably heard that line before, but this one looks like it could deliver some definite jaw-dropping moments (and maybe even a bit of drama too). Take a look for yourself.

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 face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.

Testament Of Youth – The Review

9 July 2015 8:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Well, looks like it’s time to take another break from the Summer movie multiplex mayhem and settle in for something a tad more staid and much more somber. Like last May’s Far From The Madding Crowd, this new release feels closer to an “end of the year” award and critics’ ten best contender. Like that earlier film, we’re back across the pond amongst the “veddy, veddy” British, plus it’s also based on a revered piece of literature. The time period is taken up about 50 years, so the horse-drawn carriages have given away to motorized vehicles (and lots and lots of trains). The big change is that this one doesn’t spring from the imagination of a writer, such as Mr. Hardy. Everything really happened to these very real people chronicled in an acclaimed memoir. Happily, like Far, this new work balances rising young stars of cinema »

Frank McGuinness on BBC1's 7/7 drama A Song for Jenny: 'I broke down'

5 July 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

BBC1 marks the 10th anniversary of the 7 July London attacks with a powerful drama written by Frank McGuinness and starring Emily Watson, based on the real-life account by Julie Nicholson of her daughter’s death

There is a scene at the dramatic heart of A Song for Jenny, in which Julie Nicholson, played by Emily Watson, stands beside her daughter’s coffin. An arm is all that lies above the sheet, so she takes Jenny’s one hand in her two hands. How short Jenny kept her nails, she thinks, as a mother would. On her own fingertips, the anointment oil glistens: she is a priest as well as a parent. And while she must have held Jenny’s hand countless times over the 24 years of her daughter’s life, all those moments of habitual intimacy have culminated in this ritual. Motherhood and priestly duty are intercut, brutally spliced – both »

Emily Watson interview: What it meant to play the mother of a 7/7 victim in A Song for Jenny

26 June 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

As I’m waiting to interview Emily Watson the publicist tells me that the actress’s father died just a few days earlier – the request to inform me of this fact coming from Watson herself, in case I thought her behaviour to be “strange”. I’m a bit surprised that she still wants to go ahead – “it’s only marketing” as Watson will tell me later in a different context – but the 48-year-old star of Breaking the Waves, Hilary and Jackie, Angela’s Ashes and The Book Thief seems determined to keep our appointment. »

Testament Of Youth stars Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington with director James Kent Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

James Kent follows up on the Testament Of Youth, based on Vera Brittain's World War I memoir, the day of Interview Magazine's première, on and off the red carpet with Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington. We connect Helen Mirren's costume designer, Consolata Boyle, with a Coco Chanel style dictum, he confides what getting Joanna Scanlan meant to him, turning Alicia from Ava in Alex Garland's Ex Machina into Vera, and coming on board with David Heyman, the producer of Paddington, Gravity, and the Harry Potter films.

Roland Leighton (Kit Harington) Edward Brittain (Taron Egerton) Vera (Alicia Vikander): "Loving it with the boys."

The ensemble, including Miranda Richardson, Emily Watson, Taron Egerton, Colin Morgan, Dominic West, Jonathan Bailey and Alexandra Roach contributes mightily to the impact Brittain's story continues to have. »
