Noomi Rapace reveals that she's glad to be shut of Lisbeth Salander, while The Artist's canine co-star discovers he won't be getting a sausage at the Baftas

Removing the dragon tattoo

Far from casting jealous eyes at the Hollywood remake of her original, star-making movie, Swedish actor Noomi Rapace is relieved to no longer be the girl with the dragon tattoo. She played the trilogy's enigmatic heroine Lisbeth Salander in the successful Swedish language versions and made the part one of the most sought-after in Hollywood when director David Fincher announced he would be handling the inevitable remake. Relative unknown Rooney Mara won the part, fending off competition from many including Carey Mulligan, but according to Rapace, the part of the cyber-hacking, bike-riding, tattooed lesbian could be a bit of a curse. "Lisbeth lived in me for one and a half years and she was definitely in control," said Rapace, »

We Need To Talk About Kevin Wins At Lff

27 October 2011 3:04 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The 55th BFI London Film Festival - or 'L Double F' as no-one calls it - has had another auspicious year. Filmmakers of the stature of David Cronenberg, Alexander Payne, Lynne Ramsay and Fernando Meirelles showed off their wares, big name actors graced the red-carpet with their Earth-healing presences and George Clooney, bless him, did both. Plus no-one fell into that giant hole in the middle of Leicester Square, which is a bonus.But, like Highlander on sportsday, there can be only one winner. The votes are in and Ramsay's highly-acclaimed We Need To Talk About Kevin has come away with the festival's Best Film award. John Madden, Lff jury chair, described it as "a sublime, uncompromising tale of the torment that can stand in the place of love".It seems like a solid shout - only The Artist and Shame have come close to the critical plaudits showered on »

Toronto After Dark 2011: The Divide Review

26 October 2011 2:31 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Not a moment is given before the gorgeously apocalyptic opening of Xavier Gens new film sees its cast of characters barricaded in the basement bunker of a New York City high-rise.  Then the few survivors have all the time in the world, stuck with each other after the world end.  Such is the premise of The Divide, a film that is more icky than it is beautiful, as if someone decided to make a less-parable, less-arty version of Fernando Meirelles and José Saramago's Blindness with video-game aesthetics as book-ends.  The Divide is not so much about anything, but much like the directors previous, and quite furious film, Frontier(s), it plays out the situation that leaves little to the imagination, and more than a fair bit »

Toronto: Magnolia Acquires U.S. Rights To Fernando Meirelles Drama ’360′

24 October 2011 12:42 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Magnolia Pictures bought U.S. rights to 360, the Fernando Meirelles-directed ensemble drama that stars Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law, Ben Foster, Jamel Debbouze and Moritz Bleibtreu. The film is a series of intersecting storylines that deal with love and infidelity, written by Peter Morgan and inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s Reigen, the play most famously turned into the 1950s film La Ronde. 360 was high on buyer lists coming into Toronto, but despite the pedigree and starpower, many of the distributors found the subject matter too challenging to see a wide release. The film recently was chosen as the opening-night film of the BFI 55th London Film Festival. “Fernando Meirelles and Peter Morgan are two exceptional talents that have crafted a unique and truly special picture,” Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles said. He called it “a stunningly well made film, and a fantastic showcase for some of the most talented actors from around the world. »

The 1970s-style all-star disaster flick gets a slick modern update in Steven Soderbergh's global disease thriller

Tellingly, and with an ambiguous hint of moralism, it all begins with a dangerous liaison. Gwyneth Paltrow plays Beth, a woman taking a call at an airport from someone she's just slept with, and who isn't her husband. She is pale, sweaty, nauseous, but wearily puts these symptoms down to jet-lag. Actually, she's a human Ground Zero: the first person to suffer from a horrific new contagious disease soon to encircle the globe.

The all-star disaster-movie genre is taken out of the 1970s and given a stylish and largely persuasive 21st century makeover by director and cinematographer Steven Soderbergh. Armed with a pulsing, driving score by Cliff Martinez, he flits from city to city, from deserted airport departure lounge to scarily antiseptic hospital lab. His cast includes Matt Damon as Beth's husband, Kate Winslet »

'360' Writer Tells Us Freddie Mercury Biopic Is Waiting For Sacha Baron Cohen, Motor Racing Won't Be Focus Of Ron Howard's 'Rush' Exclusive: Getting two Oscar nominations in two years tends to make your inbox a little fuller than it was before, so it's no surprise that picking up nods in 2007 for "The Queen" and 2009 for "Frost/Nixon" has made Peter Morgan one of the busiest screenwriters around. The British director has since worked with Tom Hooper and Clint Eastwood, as well as penning Fernando Meirelles' latest, "360," which opened the BFI London Film Festival last week. He somehow… »

Drug gangs swap pistols and murder for popcorn and movies

Complexo do Alemao, one of the biggest favelas in Rio de Janeiro, used to be known more for drug trafficking than as a place to watch films. This was a no-go area for the police for years – a shantytown full of narrow streets and boarded-up houses, where life resembled something out of Fernando Meirelles' award-winning film, City Of God. »
