In March 1981, as he made his Doctor Who debut, Peter Davison was already one the best known faces on British television. Not only was he the star of both a BBC and an ITV sitcom - Sink Or Swim and Holding The Fort - but as the young and slightly reckless Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great And Small, about the often humorous cases of Yorkshire vet James Herriot and his colleagues, he had cemented his stardom. The part led, indirectly, to his casting as the venerable Time Lord.
The first trailer for Steven Bernstein’s Decoding Annie Parker gave us a lot to think about, from one woman’s journey to discover the genetic components of breast cancer to what Aaron Paul looks like with long hair. And now we have the exclusive reveal of the film’s first poster.
Decoding Annie Parker, which is loosely based on a true story, follows Annie Parker (played by Samantha Morton) as she finds out that she has breast cancer. But after a family history of the same diagnosis, Parker turns to a team of researchers, led by Helen Hunt, to »

Months after the end of "Breaking Bad," Aaron Paul is dealing with cancer again, but this time there won't be any meth, guns or chemistry. But there will be plenty of hair care products. With Paul starring alongside Helen Hunt and Samantha Morton, "Decoding Annie Parker" looks to be an eccentric, inspirational true story about conquering disease. Morton plays a free spirit diagnosed with breast cancer, who works with a radical geneticist (Hunt) to prove that the disease can be inherited. But, honestly, the plot takes a backseat to Paul's luscious locks. Throughout the video, he sports several different 'dos, including a very long, very soft-looking hippie hair. In another scene, Paul models a short, punky coiffure that looks borrowed from Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong. Watch the trailer here: "Annie" also stars Rashida Jones, Bradley Whitford, Alice Eve, Richard Schiff, Maggie Grace, Chris Mulkey and Corey Stoll. It »

Aaron Paul‘s first big post-Breaking Bad outing had him playing a race car driver with a score to settle. His second has him playing the supportive husband to a woman suffering from breast cancer. Yet there’s something kind of Jesse Pinkman-ish about both of them; Paul seems to have cornered the market on lovable screwups. […]

The film focuses on two incredible women who battle to understand the genetic links to breast cancer. Loosely based on the story of cancer survivor Annie Parker and geneticist Mary-Claire King, the film focuses on the journey of these two women in discovering the BRCA1 gene mutation, which transforms understanding and treatment of certain types of breast cancer. It was the understanding of this gene mutation which led Angelina Jolie to release a heartfelt letter in the New York Times, which confessed her personal battle with the gene.
The film has already received positive reviews and awards, Samantha Morton won Best Actress at The Seattle International Film Festival and Bernstein also won The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Feature Film Award at The Hamptons International Film Festival. »

Following the end of "Breaking Bad," actor Aaron Paul isn't faring too well on the big screen since Need for Speed was an absolute mess of nonsense and poor action. But maybe a lower profile drama will show his talents better in Decoding Annie Parker. The film follows two women, Samantha Morton and Helen Hunt, whose lives intersect as one deals with loss and heartbreak and the other has a breakthrough in the area of treating breast cancer. Morton adds some darker humor into the mix, and this look pretty charming and even amusing despite the depressing true story material. And there's Aaron Paul looking like a real 70s hippie (along with some great wardrobe for the whole cast) Might be worth checking out. Watch below! Here's the first trailer for Steven Bernstein's Decoding Annie Parker, originally from Yahoo: Decoding Annie Parker marks the feature directorial debut of Steven Bernstein »

Before Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy after learning she had the BRCA1 gene mutation known to cause breast and ovarian cancer, a woman named Annie Parker paved the way for that theoretical research to become scientific fact. The cancer survivor is played by Samantha Morton in the upcoming drama, “Decoding Annie Parker,” which co-stars Aaron Paul as her husband, and Helent Hunt as the doctor struggling to convince her colleagues that certain breast cancers are inherited. “I'm the Angelina Jolie of 30 years ago,” Parker, the real life 63-year-old cancer survivor, »

Not every tearjerker earns its sentimentalism, but even well-trod territory can work with the right cast, and "Decoding Annie Parker" has enough good people involved to warrant a look at the latest trailer. The film stars Samantha Morton as Annie Parker, a woman diagnosed with breast cancer, which killed her mother and sister. While Annie struggles to overcome her disease, Dr. Mary-Claire King (Helen Hunt) looks for proof that breast and ovarian cancer is hereditary. Morton and Hunt show some definite promise, but the supporting cast looks strong as well: Rashida Jones, Bradley Whitford, Corey Stoll, Marley Shelton, Maggie Grace -- and Aaron Paul, sporting a hairdo that looks like he's making up for his mop so short on "Breaking Bad." Entertainment One Films will release "Decoding Annie Parker" in theaters and On Demand on May 2. Watch the trailer below. »

Loosely based on a true story, the film follows Annie Parker, played by Samantha Morton, as she discovers that, much like her mother and her sister, she also has breast cancer. Helen Hunt, who plays a researcher, then teams up with Annie and a group of scientists to try and find a genetic link to the disease.
Putting aside the medical stuff, Aaron Paul also plays a Canadian pool man — so there’s that. And let’s not forget the film »

A serious subject deserves serious treatment, and you'd think that "Decoding Annie Parker"—based on the true story of Mary Claire King, a geneticist who discovered a gene linked to breast cancer—would perhaps play things with a bit of gravitas. Instead, the music alone in this trailer seems like it belongs in an ad for frozen yogurt. Starring Helen Hunt, Samantha Morton, Aaron Paul (in a series of ever-changing haircuts), Corey Stoll, Alice Eve, Ben McKenzie, Rashida Jones, Maggie Grace... The cast is pretty solid, so good on co-writer and director Steven Bernstein for that. But the trailer showcases a movie that where cancer is just another opportunity for some quick one liners, with inspirational people doing inspirational things, and a soundtrack that lets you know that in the end, everything will be okay. In short, it looks pretty safe, but maybe the film itself will have a bit more edge to it. »

Here's one for the Erin Brockovich fans: the trailer for Steven Bernstein’s Decoding Annie Parker, which comes out in theaters and VOD on May 2. Loosely based on a true story, the film stars Samantha Morton in the title role as a woman diagnosed with breast cancer after it kills both her mother and sister. Helen Hunt plays the researcher hoping to uncover the genetic roots of the disease. Presumably they meet and teach one another inspirational life lessons about friendship, perseverance, and hereditary gene mutations. Sounds like a tearjerker, but there is some inadvertent comic relief: namely, Aaron Paul, who has traded in his Jesse Pinkman buzz cut for long, flowing locks. Seriously, he looks like a young Joni Mitchell. »

The first trailer for Entertainment One's upcoming drama Decoding Annie Parker showcases Samantha Morton and Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul in ways you've never seen them before. Morton stars as the title character, who is going through a tumultuous time in her personal life, while geneticist Mary-Claire King (Helen Hunt) discovers the BRCA1 gene mutation, proving there is a hereditary link to cancer. Check out the first footage to see Aaron Paul as a long-haired pool boy in this drama based on a true story, which co-stars Alice Eve, Maggie Grace, Rashida Jones and Corey Stoll.
Annie Parker has a personal relationship with breast cancer. Her mother and her sister died of the disease and ultimately she is diagnosed with it too. Naturally affable with an offbeat sense of humor - even in the face of her own mortality, she struggles to hold her family and life together, as her body betrays her. »

This weekend's box office results deliver a few unsettling revelations, not the least of which is that the summer movie season now officially starts while there is still some snow on the ground. The smashing success of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," which set a new April record with its estimated debut of $96.2 million, means we'll have to look at a lot of things differently, including the month of April (which will forever after remain infested by summer movie season creep), the Marvel Cinematic Universe (truly, "The Avengers" has the longest and strongest coattails ever sewn), and Scarlett Johansson.
Ok, ScarJo wasn't the top-billed star of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." (Then again, neither was Chris Evans. The star of these Marvel films is the Marvel universe.) Still, Johansson made her third successful appearance as Marvel's Black Widow. And she is a bigger star than Evans, with a longer track record. »

Director: Liv Ullmann
Writer: Liv Ullmann
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
While IFC Films/Sundance Selects will hopefully release Two Lives sometime this year, an excellent German film in which Liv Ullmann stars, we’re even more excited to see her return to the director’s seat for the first time in fourteen years with this adaptation of Strindberg’s theater staple. There are several other film versions out there, perhaps most famously is Alf Sjoberg’s 1951 treatment. But with leading ladies like Chastain and the sublime Samantha Morton, this is destined to be one of the year’s most welcome re-interpretations.
Gist: Over the course of a midsummer night in Fermanagh in 1890, an unsettled daughter of the Anglo-Irish aristocracy encourages her father’s valet to seduce her. »

While we didn't see much of Jessica Chastain at the multiplex in 2013, aside from the horror thing "Mama," 2014 promises to bring us a whole lot of the actress. Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" is, of course, already scheduled and the now-filming "A Most Violent Year" is expected to be ready for the awards season, also the dual movie "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby His & Hers" will likely see some kind of release in the next twelve months. And one more to keep an eye out for, at least on the festival circuit, is Liv Ullman's "Miss Julie." The directorial effort from the legendary actress is her first in over twelve years, an adaptation of the famed August Strindberg play, which has Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton co-starring. Needless to say, all the ingredients make this one we're eager to see, and these first images from the film are a nice tease. »
