Filming wraps on José Padilha hijacking thriller starring Rosamund Pike

8 February 2017 12:40 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Daniel Brühl, Eddie Marsan also star in project based on real events.

Principal photography has wrapped on José Padilha’s untitled thriller based on the real-life story of the 1976 Air France hijacking. Padilha’s previous work includes Narcos and Elite Squad.

The film, temporarily called Untitled Entebbe Project, stars Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Daniel Brühl (Captain America: Civil War). The cast also includes Eddie Marsan, Ben Schnetzer, Lior Ashkenazi, and Denis Ménochet.

The story is inspired by the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight en route from Tel Aviv to Paris by members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and depicts ‘Operation Entebbe’, the rescue mission carried out by Israel commandos to free the hostages. The film promises to take a nuanced look at both sides of the conflict.

The Participant Media and Working Title Films project will be released through Participant’s output arrangements via Amblin Partners, with [link=co »

Berlin: Sellers Hit the Festival and Market With Mixed Expectations

3 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sellers are heading to Berlin with realistic expectations about the state of the marketplace and the hurdles facing them.

“Consistently delivering great movies has always been the challenge, but you need the rigor required for that even more so now,” says Sierra/Affinity CEO Nick Meyer, who’ll be repping the Wwi-era drama “The Promise,” starring Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale, in Berlin. “The demand for excellence in filmmaking from independent distributors around the world is higher than ever.”

While Meyer is pragmatic about the global economy (“There are always going to be currency fluctuations and markets that are up and down — that’s the rule,” he says), others see a more ominous landscape.

“The fundamental issue right now is that every single territory in the world has problems that are very challenging, not just for the cinema market, but politically and economically,” says FilmNation Entertainment senior VP of international sales Tara Erer, »

Urban Myths: Bob Dylan review – his Bobness pops to Crouch End for tea

19 January 2017 11:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The first in Sky Arts’ new Urban Myths series of comedy drama, starring a very convincingly Bob-like Eddie Marsan

Sky Arts’ new Urban Myths series of comedy dramas has already made waves, although not the sort it would have wanted. They decided, in the end, not to air the one in which Joseph Fiennes plays Michael Jackson, after the outrage it caused, particularly from Jackson’s family. Seems it does matter if you’re black or white, after all.

This one – Urban Myths: Bob Dylan (Sky Arts) – is contentious only in its questionable veracity, which of course is the point of an urban myth. Bob shows up at Heathrow; he is poetic, obtuse and generally Bob-like to the (unusually) nice lady at passport control, who is confused, a little suspicious but also undeniably charmed and sends her regards to Dave, the Eurythmic, whom Bob says he’s in town to visit. »

Game of Thrones Star Trades in Ramsay Bolton for Adolf Hitler Role

13 January 2017 8:55 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

From Ramsey Bolton to Adolf Hitler.

As revealed this week, actor Iwan Rheon, who played the dastardly Game of Thrones villain on the HBO fantasy series, is set to star as Hitler in an installment of Sky Arts’ new series Urban Myths. Rheon will be joined by Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, who is playing Hitler’s Friend.

Based on the teaser, Rheon’s portrayal of the Nazi leader is focused on his failed pursuits at becoming a painter.

“I will introduce myself as Adolf Hitler, academic painter,” Rheon declares in the short clip. »

"Between us - we'll have them weeping in the aisles." An official UK trailer has debuted for the latest film from acclaimed director Lone Scherfig, of the films The Riot Club, One Day and An Education (one of my favorites). Her latest is a WWII-set comedy titled Their Finest about a British film crew that attempts to boost morale by making a propaganda film after the Blitzkrieg. Gemma Arterton stars as a writer, along with an impressive ensemble including Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy, Jack Huston, Paul Ritter, Rachael Stirling, Richard E. Grant, Henry Goodman, Jake Lacy, Jeremy Irons, Eddie Marsan and Helen McCrory. This is also playing at the Sundance Film Festival coming up, and it looks like it's worth catching.

See Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson in Bizarre 'Urban Myths' Trailer

11 January 2017 6:47 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Joseph Fiennes (controversially) portrays Michael Jackson in the first trailer for a new comedy show that reimagines the urban legend about the King of Pop's post-9/11 road trip with Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor.

Originally called Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon, the film has since been retitled and integrated into Urban Myths: A Brand New Collection of Comedies, an anthology that revolves around other "true…ish stories" that have circulated as urban legends.

In the trailer, Fiennes' Jackson appears as a largely silent, wild-eyed passenger as Taylor (played by Stockard Channing) and »

Here's your first look at Urban Myths, Sky Arts' star-studded and controversial new series...

When Sky Arts announced they were pressing ahead with Urban Myths, a new series set to explore some of the more random urban legends that have been linked to celebrities over the years, it sounded like it was going to be pretty fun, but as the casting process continued things started to get almost as weird as the stories themselves.

Must-See Bizarre Trailer For Urban Myths Shows Joseph Fiennes As Michael Jackson!

11 January 2017 5:50 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Urban Myths is going to be a very unique TV series when it premieres on Sky Arts on January 19. It's going to put a unique, absurd twist on all kinds of urban legends that surround some of the most famous figures ever. 

In Urban Myths, you'll see a varied group of famous figures like Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, Adolf Hitler (!?!?!), Bob Dylan, Cary Grant, and others played by the likes of Brian Cox, Stockard Channing, Eddie Marsan, and more. But one of the more notable castings, which took the net by storm a while back when it was announced, was the choice to have Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare In Love) play "The King of Pop" Michael Jackson.

Well, if you've been curious about this project ever since hearing about that Mj casting, here's a chance to take a peak at the bizarre tales it plans to tell- including our first glimpse of Fiennes as Jackson. »

Joseph Fiennes plays Michael Jackson in bizarre first trailer for Urban Myths

11 January 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sky Arts has just released the first trailer for their upcoming satirical eight-part miniseries Urban Myths, which sees a group of hugely talented actors playing some of the most recognizable historical figures/celebrities of contemporary history (in some cases even a little bit before that period). Check out the bizarre and occasionally off-putting trailer below…

If the name of the series rings a bell, it may be because of a certain controversy the show was met with last year when it was announced that Joseph Fiennes, a white man, was cast as Michael Jackson, a black man who had a rare skin disease that affected the pigment of his skin. Many claimed that Fiennes’ casting was yet another example of whitewashing.

Entitled Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon, the episode follows Fiennes’ Jackson, Stockard Channing’s Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox’s Marlon Brando as they go on a road trip after 9/11; some »

Watch: First Look at Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson in ‘Urban Myths’ Trailer

10 January 2017 6:02 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Following last year’s scandal over casting Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson in its road-trip comedy, Sky Arts released the first trailer for “Urban Myths.” The lighthearted Ben Palmer-directed piece tells the tale of Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, and Michael Jackson as they attempt to journey back to West Coast in the aftermath of 9/11. And if the trailer is anything to go on, it seems more “true…ish stories” will be told as well.

The fabled road trip isn’t the only historical story told in “Urban Myths,” it seems. It appears the special includes a larger set of stories, as confirmed in a final shot: “Urban Myths: A Brand New Collection of Comedies,” the words read.

Hitler (Iwan Rheon) and “Hitler’s friend” (Rupert Grint), as he is referred to in a superimposed credit, appear to be painting some of Hitler’s early artwork. The friend seems more like an assistant to the infamous mass-murderer »
