Watch: VFX reel for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

21 February 2017 9:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have missed out on an Oscar nomination for this month’s 89th Academy Awards, but Warner Bros.Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them still featured some very impressive visual effects, and Rodeo FX has released a breakdown video showcasing their work on the Harry Potter spinoff prequel; take a look here…

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’: Designing the Immigrant Experience

20 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For three-time Oscar winners Stuart Craig and Colleen Atwood, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” offered fascinating stylistic departures. J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” standalone takes place in New York in 1926 — a time, of course, when the immigrant experience flourished.

“New York was all about diversity, and [director] David Yates wanted [to express that],” Atwood told IndieWire. “There were people new to New York and there were people that had been there for a generation — and it was an open-minded time.”

Thus, for both production and costume design, there was great class and cultural diversity to explore in architecture and wardrobes. Although they considered shooting in New York City, that proved to be impractical, so they returned to the back lot of Leavesden Studios outside of London.

J.K. Rowling identified particular buildings in her script, including the Gothic Woolworth [for the Magical Congress headquarters], which at that time was the largest building in the world,” Craig told IndieWire. »

13 February 2017 2:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “S.W.A.T.reboot at CBS is heating up.

The pilot that already has A-list talent behind the camera has just cast Bond girl Stephanie Sigman in a starring role, Variety has learned exclusively.

Sigman is the first cast member to sign onto the reboot, which is based on the movie of the same name. The pilot follows a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant who is torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly-trained unit that’s the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles. Sources say CBS is nearing a deal with an actor for the lead lieutenant role.

Sigman will play Jessica, who’s described as ambitious and fastidious, and has earned her high rank at S.W.A.T. headquarters.

Exclusive: Thomas Turgoose on Butterfly Kisses & This is England

11 February 2017 1:35 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Known, primarily, for portraying Shaun in the breathtaking film/TV series This is England, Thomas Turgoose can be seen in Butterfly Kisses, playing snooker club manager ‘Shrek’ in Rafael Kapelinski’s debut production. The film, showing at the Berlinale, gets into the head of its teenage protagonist (Theo Stevenson), who is harbouring dark, perverse sexual desires.

We had the pleasure of chatting to Turgoose about the production, and how brave a piece of contemporary cinema it is. We also went on ask about This is England (naturally) – as the young actor describes just how special the experience has been to him over the years, and the incredible friendships he’s formed with his fellow cast members and crew. He also speaks briefly about his forthcoming collaboration with Margot Robbie in Terminal, and candidly discusses his career, and how he’s overcome a difficult period in his life. »

Damien Chazelle and Kenneth Lonergan are Neck and Neck in Original Screenplay Oscar Race — Here’s Why

10 February 2017 9:37 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When the Academy moved Barry Jenkins’ script for “Moonlight” to the Adapted Screenplay category, the Oscar race for Original Screenplay became a battle between two writer-directors. While Damien Chzelle’s reboot of the Hollywood musical is a strong contender throughout its 14 nominations, and Oscar voters will tick plenty of “La La Land” boxes on their ballots, it’s still rare for an original musical to land a screenplay win. (Alan Jay Lerner’s “An American in Paris” and Mel Brooks’ “The Producers” are exceptions.)

That’s why lauded playwright and screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan could win this race.

Here’s how Original Screenplay is shaking out:

Kenneth Lonergan (“Manchester by the Sea”)

The Oscar could go to the comeback writer-director for his tragic New England family drama.

First look image of Elle Fanning as Mary Shelley emerges

10 February 2017 6:13 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The first look at Elle Fanning as English novelist, Mary Shelley, who is best known for the Gothic novel Frankenstein, has emerged via The Hollywood Reporter. The drama is currently under offer to buyers from Hanway at the Berlin Film Festival, Berlinale.

At the tender age of just 18 (19 come April), Elle Fanning has just been seen in an appearance in the sinister yet beautiful trailer for the upcoming The Beguiled alongside Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell. She eems to have surpassed her elder sister, Dakota Fanning, through numerous projects which have not only gained critical acclaim (read our review of The Neon Demon here) but has many flocking to have her lead their pictures. Most recently we have seen her in Live by Night alongside Ben Affleck and just last week saw the release of 20th Century Women.

Check out the beautiful first trailer for Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled

9 February 2017 2:38 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

With a name to ring a dozen Hollywood bells every time it’s spoken a new film from Sofia Coppola will always bring a measure of excitement. The last film she produced was the Netflix Holiday special A Very Murray Christmas, which she directed and co-wrote with Bill Murray and Mitch Glazer. Before that she stood in the eye of the Californian fame hurricane with 2013’s The Bling Ring, which followed the languid Somewhere from 2010. Today her new film, The Beguiled, had its first trailer revealed and we’re a million miles from Tinseltown.

The film was adapted by Coppola from Thomas Cullinan 1966’s novel A Painted Devil and Don Siegel’s own cinematic adaptation of the story in 1971 (a film which shares the name The Beguiled). The stage is set in 1863, during the American Civil War, at an all-girls boarding school in Mississippi. An injured Union »

The Beguiled: first trailer for Sofia Coppola’s remake

8 February 2017 10:31 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 9, 2017

Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell lead Sofia Coppola's take on The Beguiled. Here's the first trailer...

We’ve already had one take on Thomas Cullinan’s novel, The Beguiled, on the big screen. That arrived in 1971, with Clint Eastwood in the lead, and it’s one of his most underappreciated movies.

See related  Doctor Strange: what to expect from the movie Black Panther: Andy Serkis pictured on set Captain Marvel to be origin story, Black Panther won’t be

Now, though, Sofia Coppola is bringing something different to the material. She’s recruited a cast that features Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning. And the wraps are beginning to come off the new The Beguiled.

The first trailer for the film has landed, and you can get a look right here…

The Beguiled lands in UK cinemas on June 23rd in the UK. »

Entertainment Weekly have released the first batch of photos from Sofia Coppola’s upcoming The Beguiled. We also have the first trailer for adaptation of the 1966 Thomas Cullinan novel, which was previously adapted into a film in 1973.

The soldier manipulates the situation for his own gratification, but when he refuses to completely comply with the girls’ wishes, they make it very difficult for him to leave.

Starring in the film is Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst and Angourie Rice. It will be released on June 23rd 2017.

Yes No Maybe So: "The Beguiled"

8 February 2017 2:50 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

#vengefulbitches forever

The teaser for Sofia Coppola's remake of The Beguiled (2017) is upon us and it is glorious if surprisingly faithful. In fact, if you watched the original 1971 movie with us during the last season of Hit Me With Your Best Shot you'll be hard pressed to spot many immediate differences beyond of course the new cast. Nicole Kidman takes the Geraldine Page role (we worship Kidman but good luck topping one of Page's juiciest star turns), Colin Farrell gets the Clint Eastwood wounded womanizing soldier part, Kiki steps in for Elizabeth Hartman, and Oona Laurence (who was so good opposite Gyllenhaal in Southpaw) plays the Pamela Ferdin role. 

If you haven't yet seen the trailer or would like to watch it again (I'm on round 5) it's after the jump along with a short "Yes No Maybe So" »

Watch: First Teaser Trailer for Sofia Coppola's New Film 'The Beguiled'

8 February 2017 1:27 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"If you could have anything in the world, what would it be?" "To be taken far away from here..." Focus Features has unveiled the teaser trailer for Sofia Coppola's latest film, titled The Beguiled, adapted from Thomas Cullinan's Southern Gothic novel. Set during the Civil War, an injured Union soldier ends up being nursed back to life inside a girls' boarding school in the Confederate south. Colin Farrell plays the soldier, and the cast includes Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, and Oona Laurence. While at first this seems like a simple love story, the twist is that the girls eventually turn on him, and there's that crazy funny line that Farrell shouts at the end of this trailer that is already being turned into a meme online. Here's the first official teaser trailer for Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled, direct from Focus' YouTube: While imprisoned in a Confederate girls' boarding school, »

First Trailer For Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled Unveils A Period Drama With A Dark Twist

8 February 2017 12:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Barring the delightful festive treat known as A Very Murray Christmas, it’s going on four years since Sofia Coppola’s last creative effort, The Bling Ring, dazzled moviegoers on the big screen. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the writer-director hasn’t been keeping busy.

In between work on documentaries like The Family Whistle, Coppola has been quietly pulling together a modern remake of The Beguiled, a new, star-studded interpretation on the novel A Painted Devil by Thomas P. Cullinan. Indeed, Cullinan’s period yarn has graced the screen before; back in 1971, director Don SiegelClint Eastwood and Geraldine Page tackled the family drama, which largely takes place in rural Mississippi during the height of the American Civil War.

Sofia Coppola’s version of The Beguiled will dance to the same tune, only this time it is The Lobster‘s Colin Farrell on board to play wounded Union soldier, »
