First Look At Posh, From An Education Director Lone Scherfig

24 February 2014 12:06 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A film is a window into the life of another, and, in the case of the upcoming Posh, a window into the lives of the upper-class elite. Director Lone Scherfig (An Education) brings the tale of rich people doing very terrible things to theaters this fall, with a screenplay written by Laura Wade based on her 2010 play of the same name.

Max Irons and Sam Claflin star as Oxford University freshmen who are determined to join the shadowy Riot Club – a place that holds a near-mythic status for aiding in the upward social ladder climb of its members. Natalie Dormer, Jessica Brown Findlay, Holliday Grainger and Douglas Booth fill out the rest of the young cast whose starry eyed dreams of future success may or may not be dashed by the time the film is over. How much will these young adults be forced to endure before they are allowed into the secretive club? »

First look at Posh

24 February 2014 11:55 AM, PST | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

A year ago it was announced that Posh, the critically-acclaimed and controversial West End play written by Laura Wade was to be made into film.

Max Irons and Sam Claflin star as Miles and Alistair, two first year students determined to join the infamous Riot Club where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening. They can be seen here with Holliday Grainger as Lauren.

Set around the Riot Club, a drinking society made up of Oxford University's privileged elite, the film is directed by Lone Scherfig, the director of An Education and One Day, from a script written by Laura Wade.

The young cast also includes Olly Alexander, Douglas Booth, Freddie Fox, Matthew Beard, and Jessica Brown-Findlay.

Posh is scheduled to be released in September 2014. »

First Look at 'Posh', New Film from 'An Education' Director, Lone Scherfig

24 February 2014 8:03 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I loved Lone Scherfig's An Education, but her follow-up, One Day, was a mess so here's to hoping her upcoming feature, Posh, adapted for the screen by Laura Wade from her play of the same name, is an improvement. Based on the plot outline it certainly has the makings of something interesting. Starring the likes of Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, Jessica Brown Findlay, Sam Claflin, Max Irons and Sam Reid, Posh focuses on Miles and Alistair (Irons and Claflin), first years at Oxford University determined to join the notorious Riot Club - a place that can make or break your time in higher education and, quite possibly, life. During the course of a night at the Bull's Head pub, ambition and avarice lead them down a dark path. Today the first pictures from Posh arrive, courtesy of Empire, which spoke with Scherfig about her new film of »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #176. Lone Scherfig’s Posh

5 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Posh

Director: Lone Scherfig

Writer: Lone Scherfig

Producers: Graham Broadbent, Peter Czernin

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Sam Claflin, Natalie Dormer, Holliday Grainger

Lone Scherfig returns to burgeoning female adulthood with this adaptation of Laura Wade’s play, again employing a number of rising stars in her cast yet to receive a breakout role. While Scherfig has an intriguingly varied filmography already, we’re curious to see what she’ll do with this dramatic thriller.

Gist: Two first-year students at Oxford University join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening. .

Release Date: Universal Pictures International has the UK distribution rights and is tied up with a September release — we’re thinking that an early look might help occur prior to an eventual Fall Fest showing, leading to an eventual theatrical release stateside.

After airing on the A&E Network last month, fans can now own the hit two-night mini-series Bonnie and Clyde on Blu-ray and DVD starting today, January 28. Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger star as the legendary bank robbers, who turned from common criminals to national sensations with the help of the media. We have an exclusive featurette with stars Holly Hunter (Emma Parker) and Elizabeth Reaser (P.J. Lane), who explain how desperately Americans needed entertainment during that time period, so they turned to stories about Bonnie and Clyde instead of more depressing tales. Take a look at this behind-the-scenes featurette you can't find anywhere else, which includes historic headlines that show just how famous this duo really was.

Though Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger, Jane Eyre) & Clyde Barrow's (Emile Hirsch, Into the Wild) crime spree is legendary, their story has never been told quite like this. Fueled by their passion for »

10 Reasons 2014 Will Be The Best Year In Entertainment. Ever.

2 January 2014 9:10 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

I was thinking about 2014, that bizarre, space-age year we’re now enjoying, and it occurred to me: This is going to be the best year ever.

Need proof? I’ve assembled a list of 2014′s upcoming perks, and they’re so awesome that I am now writ

1. 2014 began with our most important human asset: Anderson Cooper’s giggle.

The Kathy Griffin/Anderson Cooper New Year’s Eve Fiasco-Spectacular is always a gem, but this year Kathy turned on the major improv chops for a roast I won’t soon forget. She harassed the Silver Fox for his subpar tweets and called him a “lonely little boy” in a model’s body. Personally, I died when she described his childhood: “Mommy’s at Studio 54,” she intoned. Anderson descended into a fit of nursery giggles that is actually too adorable to describe. His giggle is a heretofore unheard noise. Like a remix »
