Rio, I Love You Review

15 April 2016 7:01 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Rio, I Love You is the third in the “Cities of Love” series begun with “Paris, Je T’Aime” (“Paris, I Love You”), which bring together famous directors and stars to create a series of little romantic stories around one city. The city getting the love-letter this time is Rio, home of the upcoming Olympics. However, despite its impressive list of directors, there is little to impress in “Rio, I Love You.”

Rio, I Love You boasts a more impressive line up of directors that the last one, “New York, I Love You,” but nonetheless continues the series decline in quality from the first one. Directors include Paolo Sorrentino (“Youth”), Fernando Meirelles (“City of God”), and Sang-Soo Im (“The Housemaid”), among others, but none of them shine in this mixed-up film. Rather than having the stories start and end clearly, as in the first two films, several stories make false »

Edward Holcroft to return for Kingsman 2

19 March 2016 10:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While many believed that his character was killed during the climax of last year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, according to Deadline, Edward Holcroft will be reprising his role as Charlie Hesketh in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman 2.

Hesketh was a handpicked recruit who goes through part of the training to become a Kingsman agent, but is eventually sent home after failing the train test. Later on in the film, Eggsy fights him at Richmond Valentine’s party, where he is electrocuted and presumably killed when all of the guests’ chip implants go off and their heads explode. 

Outside of Kingsman, the actor has a few notable film and TV credits to his name, such as Vampire Academy, London Spy and the Golden Globe-winning Wolf Hall. In 2016, he can be seen starring alongside Jim Broadbent, Michelle DockeryEmily Mortimer and more in The Sense of an Ending.

'Kingsman 2' Is Bringing Back This Key Character

18 March 2016 6:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after Kingsman: The Secret Service became a box office hit last February, there was already talk of a sequel, with writer-director Matthew Vaughn teasing that he was working on the script. The filmmaker also said he was contemplating on whether or not he should bring back Colin Firth's Harry Hart, who was killed towards the end of the first movie, although plans to bring him back for the sequel have since been discarded. Today, Deadline reports that a different seemingly-deceased character, Edward Holcroft's Charlie Hesketh, will be back for Kingsman 2.

While it isn't known if Edward Holcroft is returning as Charlie Hesketh or perhaps playing a completely different character, he joins a Kingsman 2 cast that includes Taron Egerton, reprising his role as Eggsy, Julianne Moore as the new villain and Halle Berry as the head of the CIA. 20th Century Fox has already issued a »

John Turturro, Paolo Sorrentino & More Create Anthology In Trailer for ‘Rio, I Love You’

1 March 2016 11:15 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

You probably know how these [City], I Love You films work: a collection of directors — and some very prestigious ones, at that — create short films that are set in and, perhaps in some way, defined by the area in question. This is a great idea that most would say has never exactly taken off, considering the tepid reception afforded Paris, je t’aime and New York, I Love You, as well as the absolute lack of attention paid to Tbilisi, I Love You. For better or for worse, there’s now Rio, I Love You, which collects the likes of Paolo Sorrentino, José Padilha, Fernando Meirelles, Guillermo Arriaga, and John Turturro to direct, among others, Harvey Keitel, Emily Mortimer, Vincent Cassel, Jason Isaacs, and Turturro himself.

The latest trailer — which arrives more than 18 months after an initial pair and the film’s premiere — is more promising, if only because it displays »

The concept is a good one: gather up some top shelf filmmakers and have them create an omnibus of shorts centered around a particular city. Previously we've seen "Paris, je t'Aime" and "New York, I Love You," and as it goes with the format, some segments are always better than others.

Oscar-nominee Charlotte Rampling (45 Years) is to star in a film adaptation of Jane Austen’s never-before dramatised final novel Sanditon.
