The Salvation Review

15 April 2015 2:39 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Set in the 1870’s in North America, The Salvation tells the story of a Danish immigrant Jon (played by Mads Mikkelsen) who has toiled for seven long years with his brother to finally have the means to send for his wife and son to join him. Taking the long journey home by stagecoach they run into trouble with two other drunken passengers, a recently released prisoner and his companion.

The Salvation review: Mads Mikkelsen film for western fans only

14 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Kristian Levring; Screenwriter: Kristian Levring, Anders Thomas, Jensen; Starring: Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Eric Cantona, Jonathan Pryce; Running time: 92 mins; Certificate: 15

Every now and then a western will come along that threatens to revive the genre, but The Salvation - although stunningly photographed with cutting-edge technology - isn't one of those. In many ways it's resolutely old-fashioned and although putting a Dane (Mads Mikkelsen) at the heart of the story is an unconventional move, it's also an act of defiance, or indifference - a refusal to pander to a modern, mainstream audience. In short, this is a western strictly for people who love westerns.

Revenge is the spark for a traditionally simple plot that uses archetypes and clichés like a sort of cinematic comfort blanket, except that shocking bursts of violence keep it from being too warmly nostalgic. The worst of it comes at the beginning »

The Salvation Review

12 April 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Kristian Levring.

Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Mikael Persbrandt, Eric Cantona, Douglas Henshall, Jonathan Pryce.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 92 minutes

Synopsis: After the murder of his wife and child, Jon (Mikkelsen) enacts revenge, only to find the brother and widow of his family’s murderer now too want their revenge.

It is both fascinating and liberating to see the western genre adopted by countries all around the world. Spaghetti westerns were always around, but in the last decade we’ve seen efforts from Korea, Japan, and now Denmark. Whether set far from the American frontier, or right in the middle of it (as this effort is), each film manages to capture something about humanity starting a fresh in a promised but unforgiving land. The Salvation certainly recreates what is great about westerns, while also adding in a quiet and reserved Scandinavian nature.

The film starts very bleakly, »

MipTV: A+E Studios Intl. Debuts ‘Marilyn Monroe’ Drama

10 April 2015 12:39 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — A+E Studios Intl. is to launch “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe,” which stars Kelli Garner, Susan Sarandon, Emily Watson and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, at next week’s television market MipTV in Cannes.

The two-parter is based on J. Randy Taraborrelli’s New York Times bestseller of the same name. It follows a young Norma Jeane Mortenson as she battles a lonely, loveless existence with an absent mother. Despite the odds, she blossoms into a smart, ambitious woman and reinvents herself as Marilyn Monroe.

As her fame grows, all three of her marriages crumble publicly. Marilyn is unable to control the onset of mental illness inherited from her mother, Gladys (Sarandon) — a woman she loves, hates and tries to save. Although kept secret, Gladys remained a vital and troubling influence.

The show, which has a four-hour running time, is produced by Asylum Entertainment for Lifetime Television.

“Oh, we are all in trouble now.”

That very rare letting-down-of-the-guard from The Good Wife‘s Eli Gold refers, of course, to this week’s bombshell allegation accusing Alicia Florrick of voter fraud in her recent election win for the office of State’s Attorney.

Exclusive New Clip From The Salvation

2 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There’s a rich (and bloody) tradition of avenging angels in Westerns, from Harmonica in Once Upon A Time In The West to Ethan Edwards in The Searchers and Josey Wales. Add Mads Mikkelsen’s character in The Salvation to that number. He’s all cold-blooded business, as this exclusive new clip from the film reveals. brightcove.createExperiences();Mikkelsen’s prairieland badass is a Danish settler, Jon, whose family is brutally murdered by a crew of rowdy horsemen during one ill-fated stagecoach ride. Jon exacts instant revenge on the perpetrator, only to discover that, like Old Man Clanton in My Darling Clementine, there’s more badness where he came from. Cue Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Delarue, the gang leader’s and now also on the hunt for revenge. Basically everyone here is on a revenge mission, hardly the recipe for a relaxing afternoon in an up-and-coming part of the Old West. »

Movie Review: The Salvation

26 March 2015 10:45 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The Salvation is a revenge film so obsessed with the “revenge” part of its plot that you can practically feel the filmmakers salivating to get to the cathartic final shootout. (And yes, a better title for it might be The Salivation. This writer is self-respecting enough not to lead with that zinger, but not above putting it in a self-aware aside.) In so doing, the film makes for a rather pointed lesson in making a good revenge movie: sure, the revenge itself had better be big and it had better be bloody, but it needs to be truly cathartic – a release of emotional energy for an interesting character. In The Salvation, it’s just one particularly concentrated explosion of cold-blooded cruelty to cap a movie that’s already dished out cold-blooded cruelty to spare.

The film opens in the 1870s, when a Danish settler’s (Mads Mikkelsen) wife and son »

Take another look @ images from the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" (currently in post-production), revealing Scoot McNairy ("Halt and Catch Fire") between takes with Henry Cavill aka 'Superman', plus Sneak Peek a prop painting of 'Thomas Wayne' (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), the father of 'Batman':

"It’s definitely 100% a character I’ve never played and I can’t speak too freely on it," said McNairy.

"But yeah, getting into that 'thing' was definitely something I had to wrap my head around emotionally, in order to play that character. 

"But with that being said, I had a lot of fun doing it when I was in the process of shooting...my head was in a different place...

"...but I’m really excited to see how it turns out...

"... and what they do with it and see the film."

The Gunman | Review

19 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Gun Show: Morel’s Failed Fashioning of Penn Into Unlikely Action Star

If anything, it’s safe to say that The Gunman, the latest film from Luc Besson acolyte Pierre Morel, is hardly as silly as previous action films, such as 2010’s From Paris With Love and the first ‘chapter’ of the Taken (2008) trilogy, which lands the French helmer the distinction of revitalizing the career of Liam Neeson. On the surface, it looks like the director is priming Sean Penn for a similar autumnal invitation to action star status, but while the performer’s hermetic seriousness may downplay the film’s camp value, it also neutralizes any aspect of entertainment.

Not smartly written enough to be a truly intelligent thriller with either a political or activist inclined angle we’re used to seeing from Penn’s increasingly infrequent on-screen performances, the end result is a leathery prune of a film, »
