Orion Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn Films have secured the North American rights to director Philippa Lowthorpe's Swallows and Amazons, the film based on the classic 1930s children’s novel by Arthur Ransome.

Gleeson portrays British author A.A. Milne, who found the inspiration for his two Winnie the Pooh books — “Winnie the Pooh” in 1926 and “The House at Pooh Corner” in 1928 — from his son Christopher Robin Milne and his stuffed animals, most notably a Canadian black bear named Winnie used as a military mascot in World War I, and left to the London Zoo during the war. The toys also served as inspiration for Milne’s Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet characters.
The family lived near the Five Hundred Acre Wood in Ashdown Forest, which served as the inspiration for the Hundred Acre Wood in the Pooh books. Will Tilston is playing the Christopher Robin role. Margot Robbie portrays Milne’s wife Daphne and Kelly Macdonald plays the family’s nanny. »

Chicago – Sequels are the bane of film’s existence. They tend to end with unresolved plotlines in an attempt to promote the need for another film. Disappointing film franchises have been built this way, but Danny Boyle is the last person I would have expected this from. “T2 Trainspotting” is the sequel to “Trainspotting” that we never wanted but are surprisingly happy to have.
“Trainspotting” didn’t end the conventional way by resolving every conflict, but instead ended with the limitless potential of a new beginning. Danny Boyle has never been a slave to conventions so this comes as no surprise, but the way he ended the first film left it completely open-ended and up to the imagination of the viewer. There is a purity to that approach that forces the audience to take everything they have experienced and learned during the film and use it to create their own ending. »

Brockmire, which stars its executive producer Azaria (The Simpsons) as the titular character, follows a famous baseball announcer 10 years after a public meltdown (triggered by his learning of his wife’s infidelity) that ruined his reputation and made him a viral sensation. The show’s cast also includes Amanda Peet (Togetherness) as the strong-willed owner of the Morristown Frackers minor league team and Tyrel Jackson Williams (Lab Rats) as an social media-savvy intern.
“This show is the most fun I’ve ever had. »
Now that Sherlock has entered a state of stasis for the foreseeable future – indefinitely, perhaps? – Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch has reunited with the creative forces at the BBC and PBS’ Masterpiece for The Child in Time, a one-off 90-minute drama based on the somber novel by Ian McEwan.
Two months have passed since Cumberbatch agreed terms to headline the drama, and we now have confirmation of three new cast members: Black Mirror‘s Kelly Macdonald, Stephen Campbell Moore and Saskia Reeves. Filming is already underway in the English capital of London, with today’s official first-look photo unveiling a mournful Benedict Cumberbatch walking alone in the woods.
Set two years after the sudden disappearance of his daughter, Cumberbatch will executive produce and headline The Child in Time as Stephen Lewis, a “successful children’s book author whose daughter suddenly goes missing in the lyrical and heartbreaking exploration of love, »

“Sherlock” fans needing a Benedict Cumberbatch fix can revel in the first look photo from his upcoming Masterpiece on PBS series “The Child In Time.” While the sneak peek image simply shows the British actor walking through the woods in England wearing a Barbour jacket and a serious expression, it was enough of a teaser to placate millions of anxious Cumberbitches around the world. Stephen Butchard’s adaptation of Ian McEwan’s award-winning novel also stars Kelly Macdonald (“Boardwalk Empire,” “Trainspotting”), Stephen Campbell Moore (“The History Boys,” “The Go-Between”) and Saskia Reeves (“Wolf Hall,” “Wallander”).

T2 Trainspotting. 2017
Directed by Danny Boyle.
After 20 years abroad, Mark Renton returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie.
Does the world of cinema need a sequel to Trainspotting? Maybe, maybe not; it’s not something worth getting caught up in or debating over because at the end of the day, Academy-Award-winning director Danny Boyle’s (who also helmed the original masterpiece based off of the novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh, and has an ever-growing impressive resume of classic films consisting of Best Picture winner Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours to name a few) 20 years later window into the lives of these addiction fueled, irresistibly watchable characters is another hyperactively directed, stylish, and hypnotic romp through the Scottish junkie lifestyle. »

In 1997 there came a little movie called Trainspotting, adapted by director Danny Boyle and scenarist John Hodge from Scottish writer Irvine Welsh’s novel of the same name. It was the loose-limbed story of a group of childhood friends spinning their collective wheels in the working-class gloom of Edinburgh, Scotland, scheming schemes, committing petty crimes, arguing the merits of Sean Connery (and, by extension, Scotland) and trying to sustain those decaying friendships all while rotating in and out of a seemingly hopeless cycle of heroin addiction, indulgence and withdrawal. For me, Trainspotting’s exuberant, hyperkinetic style decorated a somewhat sensationalistic attitude toward tragedy, on a sociopolitical as well as personal scale, and its scabrous energy always seemed too much at odds with the overwhelming lethargy which follows the orgasmic relief of a desperately needed hit. (I guess I’m more of a Panic in Needle Park kind of guy.)
But what do I know? »

Donald Trump made headlines in January for holding a screening of “Finding Dory” at the White House, but if “Trainspotting” author Irvine Welsh had his way, the President would be screening a far more controversial title. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Welsh goes on record saying he wants Trump not only to see “T2: Trainspotting,” but to also condemn the movie publicly (probably in one of his notorious Twitter rants).
“There’s two things you want whether you do a film or a book,” Welsh said. “You want the approval of cool people and the condemnation of an asshole. The condemnation of a prominent asshole is absolutely fantastic.”

A staple of mid 90’s independent breakthrough cinema, Trainspotting has long been a movie that seemed poised to get a sequel. After all, author Irvine Welsh did write a sequel to his novel of the same name, that one called Porno. This week, the sequel does arrive, though this is with the slightly more multiplex friendly title of T2: Trainspotting. The film looks to recapture what people loved so much about the first one. Considering how long this next installment had been brewing before everyone signed on the dotted line, it would have to be in order to work. Luckily, that seems to be the case. Crisis averted! This sequel is a return to the world initially presented to us in Trainspotting, obviously. After having spent 20 years abroad following his escape in the first one, Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) makes a returns to Scotland. There, he reunites with his »

Paparazzi and fans alike flocked to the Edinburgh set and disrupted filming, making it tough for the filmmakers to keep anything secret. “They were trying to shelter our costumes. They had umbrellas and were like, ‘Put your hood on when you get your hair done,’” recalls Jonny Lee Miller, who once again plays platinum-blond drug addict Sick Boy. “Danny said, ‘It’s like f--king Star Wars up here.’ There was a level of excitement which was quite alarming.”
The 1996 film was an unexpected sensation and made instant stars out of Miller and his co-stars Ewan McGregor, »

The film follows a global adventure and friendship between a massive animal named Okja and a young girl named Mija (played by South Korean actress Ahn Seo-hyun) who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping Okja.
Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija’s horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.

Danny Boyle and his Trainspotting players returned to the world of their 21-year-old cult classic, and the results were, apparently, perfectly all right. That it’s heavily reliant, too reliant, on the first film’s magic is no surprise, but it’s nice that the return of Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, and Kelly Macdonald wasn’t entirely for naught.
The latest preview — I think there have been 38 now? — is titled “Legacy,” though that’s not to say it’s much different from what’s been seen thus far. For a better, more honest sense of what to expect, turn to our review, where we say, “[The] film is about unused potential. These deadbeats have sunk back into their old routines now that the promise of the first film’s events have not come to life. The melancholy here is truthful and painful, but T2: Trainspotting »
