Ray Donovan, Masters of Sex Get Season 3 Premiere Dates

25 March 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Showtime has announced the summer premiere dates for the upcoming third seasons of two of the network’s top dramas, Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex. Both series will return on Sunday, July 12, with Ray Donovan kicking off Season 3 at 9 p.m. and Masters following it at 10 p.m. The third seasons of both shows will consist of 12 episodes. Per Showtime, Season 3 of Ray Donovan opens with the show’s titular character (played by Liev Schreiber) adrift from his family and those closest to him, while he focuses on his business and desires to be his own boss.  Meanwhile, his father Mickey (Jon Voight, in his Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning role), who had narrowly escaped last season’s heist debacle, finds himself charting a similar course to build his own empire.  Joining the show this season are guest stars Ian McShane, Katie Holmes and Elliott Gould. Ray Donovan‘s cast also includes Paula Malcomson, »

"Huntsman" Gets Three New Dwarves

19 March 2015 5:53 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Rob Brydon ("The Trip"), Alexandra Roach ("Cuban Fury") and Sheridan Smith ("Jonathan Creek") have all signed on to play three new dwarfs in Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's "The Huntsman," the upcoming prequel to 2012's "Snow White and the Huntsman" which is in development at Universal Pictures.

Nick Frost has already signed on to reprise his dwarf role from the original, at the time it was indicated that the film would only feature two dwarfs. Seems that stance has been reconsidered, though Frost is the only actor who played a dwarf in the first film who is coming back for the sequel.

Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the other dwarfs in 'Snow White' and aren't expected back - though Jones and Marsan were said to have been contacted about the job.

Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron will reprise their roles as The Huntsman »

'The Huntsman' Casts 2 Female Dwarfs

18 March 2015 5:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than a month after actor Nick Frost signed on to reprise his Snow White and the Huntsman dwarf role Nion in Universal Pictures' sequel The Huntsman, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith have signed on to play three new dwarfs. We reported in January that the sequel will only feature two dwarfs, but it seems Universal has reconsidered that stance. No details were given regarding these new characters, but this is the first time female dwarfs are being introduced into the fairy tale storyline.

In Snow White and the Huntsman, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the seven dwarfs. Our report from January revealed that Toby Jones could not come to terms with the studio to reprise his role, while Eddie Marsan had scheduling complications with the Showtime series Ray Donovan. It isn't known why the others »

Chris Hemsworth's The Huntsman finds three new dwarves; Nick Frost to return

18 March 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I know I’ve seen Snow White And The Huntsman but I can scarcely recall any of it. I don’t remember it being particularly bad or particularly good for that matter, but what I do remember is that it didn’t exactly scream sequel; however we're getting a sequel anyway with The Huntsman directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. We’d previously told you that the number of dwarves in The Huntsman would be reduced, with Nick Frost, Eddie Marsan, and Toby »

Nick Frost Back For The Huntsman

18 March 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in January, there was some concern that the Snow White And The Huntsman prequel – simply called The Huntsman – would be rather lacking in the dwarfular department thanks to story directions and scheduling issues. Good news on that front! Nick Frost, who played Nion in the first film, will be back for this one, with Sheridan Smith, Rob Brydon and Alexandra Roach also signing on. This news signals that the likes of Ian McShane, Ray Winston, Johnny Harris, Eddie Marsan and Brian Gleeson are unlikely to return, though we’re counting none of them out given the change in Frost’s status.Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is handling directorial chores for this one, which finds Chris Hemsworth’s title character in the years before he first met Snow, and his early encounters with Charlize Theron’s beguiling, dangerous Ravenna. Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain are also set for the film, which will »

Andy Serkis’ Jungle Book: Origins officially begins official shooting

11 March 2015 6:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In a somewhat similar scenario to what we saw in the late 1990s with Armageddon and Deep Impact, as well as Dante’s Peak and Volcano, we have two different adaptations of Rudyard Kipling’s beloved The Jungle Book on the horizon, with the second of which, directed by Andy Serkis (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), beginning principal photography this week.

The new 3D adaptation Jungle Book: Origins will Serkis’ directorial debut, and will be a mix of live-action and performance capture CGI, with a similarly impressive cast to that of Jon Favreau’s Disney version, due in 2016.

Set to feature in Origins are Oscar winners Christian Bale (Knight of Cups) as Bagheera and Cate Blanchett (Cinderella) as Kaa the snake, with Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) cast as Shere Khan, the legendary tiger of the story.

The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, »

Filming Begins On Serkis' "Jungle Book"

10 March 2015 4:26 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Production has officially commenced on Warner Bros. Pictures' film adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic tale "The Jungle Book".

Having dropped its 'Origins' subtitle and reverting to just "The Jungle Book" as a title, the project is Serkis’ feature directorial debut and isn't to be confused with the Jon Favreau-directed Disney adaptation.

Serkis' version is said to be a decidedly darker and more adult affair akin to the book, and much more driven by motion capture performances vs. Disney's more family-oriented take.

The Serkis version boasts a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan, Cate Blanchett as Kaa, Christian Bale Bagheera, Serkis as Baloo, Peter Mullan as Akela, Tom Hollander as Tabaqui, Naomie Harris as Nisha, Eddie Marsan as Vihaan, Jack Reynor as Mowgli’s Brother Wolf and Rohan Chand as Mowgli.

Why I Love Paddy Considine – A ‘Pride’ Feature

2 March 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

After its phenomenal success at this season’s award ceremonies, including winning the BAFTA for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer (awarded to writers Stephen Beresford and David Livingstone), Pride finally arrives on DVD today!

With a stellar British cast – Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Andrew Scott, George MacKay, Joe Gilgun, Ben Schnetzer, Freddie Fox and Jessica Gunning, among many more – stand-out independent actor and director Paddy Considine also co-stars.

To celebrate the release, I’ve created a shortlist of my favourite Considine performances and not forgetting to mention he’s a huge Adam Ant fan – as am I – so we should be best friends…

Smith to Have One of His Worst Domestic Openings Ever: 'Focus'

1 March 2015 1:58 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after »

Still Life review – transcendent final moments

8 February 2015 12:01 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This tale of half-lives and lonely deaths avoids cliched resolution to set up a genuinely touching conclusion

There are few faces more forlorn than that of Eddie Marsan in this painfully melancholic tale of half-lives and lonely deaths. He plays John May, a civil servant whose thankless job is to locate relatives of the recently deceased and perpetually unloved. To his superiors (and indeed everyone else), these poor unfortunates are just numbers, but John takes an all-too-personal interest in their passing – lovingly pasting their photos into his own family albums, while eating tuna and toast at home alone. Facing his final case, John embarks on an odyssey through the land of the living that brings him into contact with the fractured friends and acquaintances of a previously unnoticed neighbour. It’s touching stuff, Rachel Portman’s plaintive score plucking endearingly at our heartstrings, Marsan’s worried demeanour dripping with an almost Chaplinesque sense of pathos. »

Film Review: 'Still Life'

7 February 2015 6:31 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ In Still Life (2013), Uberto Pasolini crafts a small, but poignant and well performed tale of life and death. It revolves around a dedicated South London council employee, played with gentility and humanity by Eddie Marsan, whose job is to track down the relatives of the recently deceased. Mr. May (Marsan) is a meticulous individual utterly dedicated to his job. He may not be fast, but there's little doubt over how much he cares about getting the living to pay their respects to the dead. Day in, day out, May writes eulogies and attends the funerals of the people who have died alone in the London borough of Kennington.

Still Life review – Eddie Marsan in a sad search for the bereaved

5 February 2015 1:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The poignant story of a shy, lonely council official is sympathetically observed but ultimately sentimental

Here is a sombre, sympathetically observed, if finally sentimental movie from Italian film-maker Uberto Pasolini, known for producing The Full Monty (1997). This was made two years ago and has a small role for Joanne Froggatt – smaller than her prominent position on the poster implies. Her Golden-Globe-winning appearance in Downton Abbey may have got this film its UK release.

The drama itself could almost be a fictional footnote to Carol Morley’s great documentary Dreams of a Life (2011), which tried to reconstruct the life of a young woman who died alone in her London flat. Eddie Marsan plays John May, a shy council official living on his own, whose job is to track down the relatives of people who die alone in the borough; he can see all too clearly that he might suffer the same Eleanor-Rigby fate. »

We already know that Kristen Stewart won't return as the Snow White and now comes word that the film will bring back only two dwarves.

Geoffrey Rush To Play "Oliver!" Composer

29 January 2015 12:24 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Geoffrey Rush is set to play composer and lyricist Lionel Bart for the musical feature "Consider Yourself" at BBC Films. Bart wrote the score for "Oliver!," the legendary musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' "Oliver Twist".

Bart was an untrained musician who couldn’t read or write music and yet became the first person to have three West End musicals running and at one point was earning more in song royalties than the Beatles. Even so, he still managed to lose it all. 

Vadim Jean directs the project which boasts a superb British cast including Stephen Fry, Olivia Colman, Eddie Marsan, Matt Lucas, Michelle Dockery and Al Weaver. Award-winning composer Elliot Davis penned the script while Jean and Paul Brooks are producing.
