Ophelia: Daisy Ridley Reimagines Shakespeare’s Heroine in New Image

Daisy Ridley stars as the Shakespearian heroine in a new image from the movie Ophelia. Claire McCarthy directs the period drama, which re-imagines Shakespeare’s famous play Hamlet. Naomi Watts co-stars as Gertrude, the queen of Denmark and mentor to Ophelia. A first-look image hit the internet last May but news on the film has been scarce since then. Clive Owen, Tom Felton, George MacKay, and Dominic Mafham round out the cast.

Film Review: ‘Stratton’

Film Review: ‘Stratton’
No intended franchise can recover from a dud launch, and “Stratton” is that kind of stillbirth: an action movie that feels as though collaborators lost heart before the cameras started rolling, perhaps in part because “SupermanHenry Cavill jumped ship just five days before shooting was scheduled to begin.

The resulting misfire certainly can’t be blamed on Dominic Cooper, who replaced him in the title role. Still, there’s definitely something dispirited and clock-punching about this flat actioner, adapted from the first in a series of eight espionage novels written by Duncan Falconer, an ex-operator for the Special Boats Services sector of Britain’s MI6. Adequately directed by “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” helmer Simon West, the U.K. production is limping into U.S. theaters during the post-holiday doldrums, having already opened last year in most territories.

The whole enterprise feels desultory from the jump, with dialogue that flatlines whether aiming for banter or urgent import

Review: ‘Stratton’ is a Soapy Actioner Built Solely on Tropes

It must have been a tough blow to see the newly minted Man of Steel bow out of a project that potentially had franchise capabilities five days before shooting was to commence, but that’s exactly what happened when Henry Cavill left Stratton over “creative differences.” I have to give him credit for doing so, though, since interviews circa late 2014 have him sounding pretty excited about the prospects of bringing to life a book series (written by former Special Boat Service commando and current pseudonym Duncan Falconer) of which he seemed a genuine fan. You have to then wonder if Falconer’s own adaptation was the issue or that from Warren Davis II. Whoever’s to blame, the final result confirms Cavill’s decision. There’s little here to conjure any excitement.

Director Simon West opens the film with a frame of text equating the UK Sbs with Navy SEALs,

‘Stratton’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Dominic Cooper, Gemma Chan, Connie Nielsen, Tom Felton, Tyler Hoechlin, Derek Jacobi, Austin Stowell, Thomas Kretschmann | Written by Warren Davis II, Duncan Falconer | Directed by Simon West

Directed by Simon West (Con Air), this British spy thriller clearly fancies itself as the basis of a lucrative action franchise in the Bond or Bourne mould. Unfortunately, the action is decidedly sub-par and the central character is as dull as dishwater, which doesn’t bode well for its chances of future instalments.

Based on a series of novels by former Special Boat Service commando Duncan Falconer (who co-wrote the screenplay), Stratton centres on pint-sized Sbs commando John Stratton (Dominic Cooper), who’s tasked with capturing evil Russian agent Grigori Barovsky (Thomas Kretschmann), before he unleashes a deadly terror attack on central London. The mission has a personal edge for Stratton, as Barovsky is the man responsible for the death of his former partner,

Fantastic Beasts 2 Team Defend Johnny Depp Casting

Fantastic Beasts 2 Team Defend Johnny Depp Casting
J.K. Rowling, author of the wildly popular Harry Potter books and writer/producer of the Fantastic Beasts movies, has come under fire from one British fan, after the author blocked her on Twitter for bringing up the abuse allegations made against Johnny Depp, who plays Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2. The fan, who goes by the Twitter handle @HobbitLindsey, is going viral after she tweeted at J.K. Rowling about how Johnny Depp still gets a role in the Fantastic Beasts movies following allegations that he abused his ex-wife, Amber Heard, while another actor on the original Harry Potter movies, Jamie Waylett, was fired for much less. Here's the original tweet that Lindsey sent to J.K. Rowling below.

"So if I understand correctly the actor who played Crabbe, a minor character, was fired from Harry Potter for doing drugs. Yet Johnny Depp, who abused his wife, gets

New Us Trailer for British Action Movie 'Stratton' with Dominic Cooper

"So what's the deal with Stratton? What's he like?" Momentum Pictures has debuted an official Us trailer for the British action movie titled Stratton, starring Dominic Cooper as a British Special Boat Service commando named Stratton who tracks down an international terrorist cell. From the director of Con Air and The Mechanic, this movie is also known as Stratton: First Into Action and opened in the UK back in September. The name "First Into Action" comes directly from the book that this is based on, a "Dramatic Personal Account of Life in the Sbs." The film's full cast includes Connie Nielsen, Tom Felton, Tyler Hoechlin, Gemma Chan, Thomas Kretschmann, Derek Jacobi, and Austin Stowell. It seems like Momentum is dumping this in January, and it doesn't look like it's really that good, mostly heavy on action. Here's the new official Us trailer (+ old UK poster) for Simon West's Stratton,

Dominic Cooper Takes on the 'Most Dangerous Man Ever' in Spy Thriller 'Stratton' (Exclusive)

Dominic Cooper Takes on the 'Most Dangerous Man Ever' in Spy Thriller 'Stratton' (Exclusive)
Dominic Cooper picked up a trick or two from his time on Agent Carter, it seems. Now that his tenure on the Marvel spy series is complete, it is Cooper's turn to play a secret agent in the upcoming action thriller, Stratton, and Et has the first trailer.

From this first look, it's clear Stratton has everything you'd want out of a flick about MI6: the threat of a biological weapon with millions of lives at stake, an accented villain vowing to get his revenge and a spy who has no respect for authority or the chain of command. To which Cooper's Stratton states, "I'm prepared to accept any penalties for violating protocol."

American Film Market Opens in Brutally Uncertain Time for Indie Movie Biz

American Film Market Opens in Brutally Uncertain Time for Indie Movie Biz
Amid a brutally uncertain environment for movies, the American Film Market opens its 38th edition Wednesday at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.

Forecasts are for mostly sunny weather — a contrast with the unpredictable conditions for the independent sector for both buyers and sellers. That state of affairs is front and center due to trio of factors: a brutal year at the domestic box office with 2017 revenues lagging last year by 5%; majors focusing on franchise tentpoles; and questions surrounding traditional distribution through theaters.

Jonathan Kier, president of international sales and distribution at Sierra/Affinity, said Afm remains vital to the independent film world.

“It’s the most important market after Cannes,” he noted. “It’s a pleasure because buyers want to make pre-buys before films go into production. The buyers have been asking us not to make the Toronto Film Festival a market since that festival is about selling finished films.”

A bearded Barry Allen in first official image from The Flash season 4

Following a promo for The Flash [watch it here], Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first official image from the upcoming fourth season of The CW’s DC superhero show featuring Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen; check it out here…

Speaking with EW, Gustin discussed how Barry is feeling following his escape from the Speed Force: “Initially, Barry is pretty scrambled when he comes out of the Speed Force. He’s not himself, he’s talking nonsense. The way I see it, when he was in the Speed Force, he experienced his whole life laid out in front of him from start to finish. So in some sense, he comes out very wise, kind of knowing everything, but he has no understanding of what he’s seen, so he comes out very jumbled and talking what he thinks makes complete sense, but just nonsense to the rest of the crew.”
