The footage is narrated by one of the unspecified human characters, who says, "I've spent more time protecting my king than my own son. Does that make me loyal or a fool?" We then see the Orcs for the first time, with »
It's a steamy class-conscious double-feature edition of Yes No Maybe So today with the recent debuts of two adult-oriented "nasty thoughts" dramas. They're both directed by women which is an unexpected plus from the complete rarity of it and oh my god I never want to type that sentence again because it's so infinitely gross that it's being typed in 2014. First we have iconic actress turned director Liv Ullman's adaptation of Strindbergh's classic Miss Julie about a cross-class dalliance between a lady (Jessica Chastain) and a servant (Colin Farrell) and then we have rising director Sam Taylor-Wood turned Sam Taylor-Johnson*'s adaptation of the not-classic best-seller 50 Shades of Grey which is also a cross-class dalliance between a fledgling reporter (Dakota Johnson, spawn of Melanie & Don) and a billionaire (Jamie Dornan, who has already spawned thank god because those genes must not go to waste!).

Set to close the 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is the sophomore directorial effort of Alan Rickman who is best known for being the source of villainy in Die Hard (1988) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991). “It is a great privilege for A Little Chaos to have its world premiere in Toronto and for it to be given the Festival’s closing night Gala, but it is also a very personal pleasure,” stated Rickman. “I have filmed in the city, visited often, and some of my closest friends live there. It will be like coming home.”
The historical drama stars Kate Winslet as Sabine De Barra an unconventional landscaper who is tasked with designing one of the fountains at The Palace of Versailles while contending with uncooperative weather, rivalries at the court of Louis Xiv and her own personal demons. Performing alongside Winslet are Stanley Tucci, Alan Rickman and Matthias Schoenaerts. »

The following clip is Nsfw, assuming you’re a repressed 19th-century manservant.
If you’re not: Here’s a first look at Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, a period piece based on the 1888 Strindberg play of the same name. Jessica Chastain plays the titular character, the feisty daughter of a count; Colin Farrell plays Jean, the valet who’s loved Julie since she was a girl. (“Loved,” here, means he’s had “nasty thoughts” about her since childhood.) Naturally, things get complicated when the two become entangled—more along the lines of Quills than Downton Abbey, if this slow-burning international trailer is any indication. »

Starring Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Colin Farrell (Phone Booth) and Samantha Morton (Minority Report), the film is based on the acclaimed play about a torrid love affair that crosses a forbidden class divide .
The official synopsis is: a country estate in Ireland in the 1880s. Over the course of one midsummer night, Miss Julie explores the brutal, charged power struggle between a young aristocratic woman and her father’s valet.
Distribution is still to be set for the film, but with it’s premiere set to spark lots of feverish activity, it surely won’t be long until it’s released across the globe.

Now that its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) has been locked in, we have a first trailer for Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, an 1880s-set erotic thriller about the power struggle between an aristocratic woman and her father’s sexually frustrated valet. With the sublime Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell leading the cast, which also includes Samantha Morton, this is going to be one to watch.
An adaptation of the famed play by August Strindberg, Miss Julie looks familiar but still extremely promising in terms of its acting, visual appearance and framing. Ullmann (Sofie, Faithless) may be just the director to reintroduce this seminal play to a new audience, and Farrell and Chastain certainly seem like suitable leads for the job. Morton, too, should provide ample dramatic pathos in her key supporting role.
The trailer is filled with tantalizing glimpses at scenes and some very steamy dialogue, »

Behold, some new stills from Horrible Bosses 2. The original wasn’t exactly junk, and pulled in just over $209 million worldwide (so of course a sequel was inevitable)and it provided enough laughs to make it passable. So as long as the sequel can hold it’s bits together, then we should get more of the same, minus Colin Farrell of course. In case you missed it earlier in the month, check out the teaser trailer here. Released: 26th November (U.S.)/ 28th November (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business in “Horrible Bosses 2.” But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company. »

Given the pedigree of talent assembled for "True Detective" season one—Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Monaghan—and the actors already being tipped for season two (Colin Farrell), not to mention the widespread critical acclaim for the show, it's understandable rivals might be a little jealous. But leave it to FX CEO John Landgraf to fire a shot at HBO about their prestige drama. "...'True Detective' is going to have to prove it's not just a vehicle for movie stars," he said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, adding: "[Nic Pizzolatto] is going to have to write something truly great every single year. I think ['Fargo' writer] Noah [Hawley] has already proven he can write something really great." It's an odd statement given that FX is home to "Fargo," which owes any interest it had going in to the Coen Brothers directed film (with the pair also putting their name on »

The Silence of the Lambs star’s potential first series regular TV gig will have him playing the man in charge of a futuristic theme park where robots go berserk and attack park guests, EW.com reports.
Now that the dust is settling around the recent flurry of fall film festival announcements, one promising entry is a Toronto world premiere: Norwegian actress-writer-director Liv Ullmann's adaptation of Swedish playwright August Strindberg’s 1888 classic "Miss Julie." The film starring Jessica Chastain ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Colin Farrell ("Saving Mr. Banks") and Samantha Morton ("A.I.") seeks a North American distributor.

Chastain has been in-demand, earning back-to-back Oscar nominations for supporting actress for "The Help" in 2012 and Best Actress in Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" in 2013.

Sexual politics are at play in the first trailer for Liv Ullmann's “Miss Julie,” an adaptation of August Strindberg's classic 19th century play, starring Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell.

Oh, and he's engaged to be married to a fellow servant (Samantha Morton).
