Backwards to the future: how Britain’s nostalgia industry is thriving

25 July 2016 10:02 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From the new film of Swallows and Amazons to Harry Potter, Britain is obsessed with a past that never existed. What is this endless Downtonisation all about?

Ron Howard had a theory about why the Us sitcom Happy Days was such a hit. The Oscar-winning director, who played Richie Cunningham in the show, argued that central to its appeal was that it was set in the 1950s, before Vietnam, drugs and hippies, when teenagers were civil to their elders. Happy Days – which ran from 1974 to 1984 – was, he told me, a return to lost innocence before Watergate. It put the 50s back into the 70s and made people happier.

The new film adaptation of Arthur Ransome’s novel Swallows and Amazons, starring Rafe Spall, Kelly Macdonald and Andrew Scott, has a similar nostalgic function. It takes us back to 1935, a time before multicultural Britain, swinging London, gay marriages, gender fluidity, online »

T2: Trainspotting 2 Trailer Brings the Old Gang Back Together

25 July 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the several movies celebrating a historic anniversary this year is Trainspotting, director Danny Boyle's breakout hit which was released almost exactly 20 years ago. After years of rumors and speculation, the long-awaited sequel Trainspotting 2 started production this year, with Sony Pictures setting a February 10, 2017 release date. Although we got the first trailer in May when production started, today we have a new teaser trailer, which gives us our first look at the four main stars, Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Robert Carlyle.

We only get a quick glance at Ewan McGregor as Renton, Ewen Bremner as Spud, Johnny Lee Miller as Sick Boy and Robert Carlyle as Begbie. Though not confirmed in this teaser, Kelly MacDonald is also reprising her role as Diane. Kevin McKidd is the only cast member from Trainspotting who won't be back in front of the camera, since his character, Tommy, »

First Photos: Bong Joon-Ho's "Okja"

19 July 2016 4:03 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Snowpiercer" and "The Host" helmer Bong Joon-Ho returns soon with "Okja," an original sci-fi drama feature for Netflix about a young girl who risks everything to prevent a multi-national from kidnapping her best friend who happens to be a massive animal.

The project is currently in the midst of production with photos from some location shooting this week going viral yesterday due to the unique costumes that two of the film's stars, Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, were wearing on set as their characters.

In the wake of those photos going online, the streaming giant decided to release the first publicity still from the feature which is sadly a far less exciting shot of Swinton and Giancarlo Esposito in more demure outfits. Paul Dano, Lily Collins, Kelly Macdonald, and Steven Yeun also star in the film which will premiere next year.

Quick Hits

Last Year’s Winner: Regina King, “American Crime” Was It an Upset? Yes. Vegas money was on Sarah Paulson (“American Horror Story”) or Mo’nique (“Bessie”). Still Eligible? Yes Hot Streak: Kathy Bates has the most nominations in this category of any actress ever, with six nods spanning from 1996 to 2015. Fun Fact: Olivia Cole was the first black actress to be nominated in this category and the first black actress to win. Her role? Mathilda in “Roots,” a miniseries being remade in 2016.

Last year, in a crowded field made up of three “American Horror Story” nominees and two major HBO players, it was the talented Regina King who took home the gold for ABC’s “American Crime.” Technically, the same thing could happen again in 2016, though the field is a bit more competitive than it was a year ago. For starters, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson and Angela Bassett »

Goodbye Christopher Robin Adds Kelly Macdonald

24 June 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald has clinched a role in Goodbye Christopher Robin, the biopic that’ll recount the heartfelt story of celebrated author A. A. Milne, who served in Wwi before going on to create Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet and a handful of other childhood mascots.

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, confirming that Macdonald – best known for roles in No Country for Old Men and, soon, Bong Joon-ho’s upcoming South Korean flick Okja – joins a cast that already boasts Margot Robbie and Domhnall Gleeson as Milne himself.

Meanwhile, Simon Curtis (Woman in Gold, My Week With Marilyn) will call the shots from behind the lens, chronicling Milne’s trying relationship with his son, Christopher Robin. Despite testing times, Christopher’s cavalry of childhood toys would go on to inspire the magical characters featured in Winnie the Pooh. Robbie will play the part of Milne’s wife, »

The family movie has undoubtedly changed in recent years. Even the good ones, like “Zootopia” or “The Lego Movie,” sometimes come across like manic, Add sugar highs, while the middling ones coast by on their sidekicks (see: minions, penguins), and the terrible ones are torturous in a way that few experiences can rival. They’re also […]

Trainspotting 2 Gets an Early 2017 Release Date

17 May 2016 6:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday was a big day for fans of the 1996 classic Trainspotting, with Sony Pictures releasing a brief trailer to commemorate the start of principal photography. Now that production is under way, the studio has made another announcement, revealing that this sequel will debut domestically in limited release on February 3, 2017, before expanding into wide release on February 10, 2017. This release date currently has three highly-anticipated sequels circling its perimeter, so we'll have to wait and see how Trainspotting 2 fares at the box office.

Entertainment Weekly broke the news of this release, which should fare well in its limited opening frame, with only one other movie, Paramount's Same Kind of Different As Me hitting theaters that weekend. On February 10, though, the movie will be going up against Universal's Fifty Shades Darker, Warner Bros.' spinoff The Lego Batman Movie and Lionsgate's John Wick: Chapter 2. The next weekend, it will also go up against four more high-profile movies, »

Spud Returns in First Trainspotting 2 Set Video and Photos

13 May 2016 6:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shooting began on Trainspotting 2 back in March, but it hasn't been until today that we've had any proof that production is up and running. Both video and photos have arrived from the set thanks to Twitter, and they show that Ewen Bremner is back as Spud. He doesn't look much different from his time spent in the original Trainspotting released way back in 1996. He will be joined in the movie by the rest of the original surviving cast, including Ewan McGregor, Johnny Lee Miller, and Robert Carlyle.

Also returning is director Danny Boyle, who can be seen in some of the first photos from the set. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the original Trainspotting. The sequel is currently shooting in both Leith and Gorgie, Scotland, where these images were snapped. One of the photos appears to show Spud begging on the street, and he still has his signature »

Special Correspondents Review

2 May 2016 2:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Satirical comedies use humour to expose and ridicule human stupidity often in relation to politics and other contemporary issues. In this sense, Special Correspondents cannot be classed as a satirical comedy – there’s no laughs, there’s no political critique, there’s no real-life relevance. This remake of 2009 French film Envoyés Très Spéciaux marks a career low for Ricky Gervais, and those expecting the wince-inducing laughs of The Office or the razor-sharp viciousness of his Golden Globe performances will be left thoroughly disappointed.

The very first shot sets off alarm bells – a night-time pan of the New York skyline is about the most clichéd, pedestrian opening to a film possible. Right after, we meet Frank Bonneville (Eric Bana), a super suave New York radio journalist and womanizer who’s really cool because he strolls confidently down the street with a pair of sunglasses on. When station boss Geoffrey Mallard (Kevin »
