When people walk out of cinema screenings

17 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

For some, movies are occasionally too violent, vulgar or plain boring to sit through. Ryan recalls some memorable cinema walk-outs...

For better or worse, there’s nothing quite like watching a movie in the cinema. There’s the sense that you’re all sharing a new experience. The feeling of expectancy when a movie the whole audience has been looking forward to seeing unfolds on the screen. The enjoyment of laughing in unison at a golden comic moment.

On the flip side, there’s the uniquely unpleasant sensation of a person behind you kicking the back of your seat. Or the horrendous human being who can’t resist checking his phone for the duration of a movie, meaning you end up having to ignore an eerie blue glow emanating from the corner of your eye for about 120 minutes.

Memories like these, whether good or bad, are all part of the cinema-going experience, »

Watch: First Trailer For Crime Pic 'By The Gun' Starring Ben Barnes, Leighton Meester, Harvey Keitel & Toby Jones

15 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Every now and then a bunch of people get together to make a movie and it lands on our doorstep with little to no warning, and such is the case with "By The Gun." We sorta didn't even know this existed, and frankly, given the names involved, we thought this would've appeared on our radar sooner. Guess not, but at any rate, the first trailer is here. Ben Barnes, Leighton Meester, Harvey Keitel, Toby Jones, and that guy from "The Town" all star in this French/Italian production of a Boston-based story about a young Italian American kid named Nick. He falls in with the aging Boston mafia and restores the organization to its former, fearsome glory. But of course, his rise to the top can only be followed by the inevitable fall, and he won't be able to escape his actions. The real question is whether or not "By The Gun »

58th BFI London Film Festival Review – Serena (2014)

15 October 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Serena, 2014.

Directed by Susanne Bier.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Rhys Ifans, Toby Jones, David Dencik, Ana Ularu and Sean Harris.

Synopsis:

Newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton plan to start a timber empire in North Carolina in the late 1920s. Powerful and unrelenting, Serena earns the fear and respect of the working men in her husband’s command. Yet their unstoppable hurricane of a love faces a storm when Serena attempts to convince George to eliminate everyone who stands in their way—including George’s illegitimate son, Jacob.

Filmed in 2012 in the forests of the Czech Republic, Serena is an epic story of love and loss, framed by beautiful tall trees and fog set in the Us of the late 1920s. George Pemberton (Bradley Cooper, American Hustle) is a privileged man who uses his family’s fortune to build a timber empire. He’s a man’s man through and through, »

Lff 2014: Serena Review

15 October 2014 4:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Susanne Bier

Cast: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Toby Jones, Rhys Ifans

Running Time: 109 minutes.

Jennifer Lawrence. Bradley Cooper. A stunning backdrop. High drama and rustic glamour. Serena certainly looks on paper to be one of the biggest films of the festival and yet it was so well hidden that you’d be forgiven for having missed it entirely.

The film has been a long time coming, caught up in post production hell for far too long while the kinks were ironed out. At the post-film Q&A, the director, Susanne Bier, even admitted she wasn’t sure it would be ready in time for the festival (but was clearly delighted that it was).

Jennifer Lawrence makes a surprise appearance to introduce Serena to the Lff audience.

Jennifer Lawrence (Serena) – who surprised everyone by showing up to introduce the film – certainly has great on-screen chemistry with friend and co-star Bradley Cooper. »

'Serena' Clips Reunite Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper

13 October 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Serena makes its world premiere at the London Film Festival today, StudioCanal UK has released a new clip and photos from director Susanne Bier's drama, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. Tensions rise when George (Bradley Cooper) introduces Serena (Jennifer Lawrence) to the workers as an equal to any man and demands she is treated as such, in this scene from the Depression-era drama.

Set in the year 1929, Serena follows newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton, as they travel from Boston to the North Carolina mountains where they plan to create a timber empire. Although George has already lived in the camp long enough to father an illegitimate child, Serena is new to the mountains-but she soon shows herself to be the equal of any man, overseeing crews, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving her husband's life in the wilderness. Together this lord and lady of the woodlands ruthlessly kill or »

Film Review: ‘Serena’

13 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

How do you solve a problem like “Serena”? That, at least, is the question industry watchers have been asking about Danish helmer Susanne Bier’s mysteriously withheld American feature — which, despite wrapping in 2012 with the enticing star duo of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, has sat on the shelf ever since. With the film finally out in the open, the question is no easier to answer: An arrestingly nihilistic Depression melodrama, marked by courageous performances and exquisite production values, this story of a timber-industry power couple undone by financial and personal corruption nonetheless boasts neither a narrative impetus nor a perceptible objective. The result is both problematic and fascinating, an unsympathetic spiral of human tragedy that plays a little like a hand-me-down folk ballad put to film. It’s not hard to see why a U.S. distributor has been slow to step forward.

Serena review: Is Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper reunion any good?

13 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Susanne Bier; Screenwriter: Christopher Kyle; Starring: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Toby Jones, Rhys Ifans, Sean Harris; Running time: 110 mins; Certificate: 15

After sharing the screen in American Hustle and more substantially in Silver Linings Playbook, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have a rapport that pays dividends in a sepia-hued adaptation of Ron Rash's novel Serena. Without their combined starriness, this period love story would sink into a slushy bog.

Danish director Susanne Bier is behind the camera and she's certainly earned her right to marshal a big Hollywood production with credits that include the original Brothers (remade with Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire) and her 2002 Dogme film Open Hearts. She usually handles high emotion with a light touch, and does so once again here (for the most part) against the backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina.

Universal Builds 'Dad's Army' with Bill Nighy & Catherine Zeta-Jones

9 October 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The man who brought Johnny English to the United States from across the pond is back with a big screen adaptation of a classic British sitcom. Dad's Army is a series that ran on BBC from 1968 to 1977, taking place during World War II in 1944 as the Allies are poised to invade France and finally defeat the German army. And now Deadline reports director Oliver Parker is working on a feature film adaptation of the show with an impressive cast that includes Bill Nighy in the lead with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Toby Jones, Tom Courtenay and Michael Gambon. All of these actors in a UK comedy? Sounds good to me. In what sounds like a British version of Sgt. Bilko, the film follows the Home Guard (volunteers ineligible for military service) in Walmington-on-Sea with the mission of patrolling the Dover army base as a way to raise their spirits.

The cast of the upcoming 'Dad's Army' remake has been revealed.
