A Little Chaos unfolds at 2014 Tiff Galas and Special Presentations

23 July 2014 4:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Set to close the 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is the sophomore directorial effort of Alan Rickman who is best known for being the source of villainy in Die Hard (1988) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991).  “It is a great privilege for A Little Chaos to have its world premiere in Toronto and for it to be given the Festival’s closing night Gala, but it is also a very personal pleasure,” stated Rickman. “I have filmed in the city, visited often, and some of my closest friends live there. It will be like coming home.”

The historical drama stars Kate Winslet as Sabine De Barra an unconventional landscaper who is tasked with designing one of the fountains at The Palace of Versailles while contending with uncooperative weather, rivalries at the court of Louis Xiv and her own personal demons.  Performing alongside Winslet are Stanley Tucci, Alan Rickman and Matthias Schoenaerts. »

Video: Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell play with fire in 'Miss Julie'

23 July 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The following clip is Nsfw, assuming you’re a repressed 19th-century manservant.

If you’re not: Here’s a first look at Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, a period piece based on the 1888 Strindberg play of the same name. Jessica Chastain plays the titular character, the feisty daughter of a count; Colin Farrell plays Jean, the valet who’s loved Julie since she was a girl. (“Loved,” here, means he’s had “nasty thoughts” about her since childhood.) Naturally, things get complicated when the two become entangled—more along the lines of Quills than Downton Abbey, if this slow-burning international trailer is any indication. »

Colin Farrell And Jessica Chastain Play Sexy Mind Games In First Miss Julie Trailer

23 July 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) has been locked in, we have a first trailer for Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, an 1880s-set erotic thriller about the power struggle between an aristocratic woman and her father’s sexually frustrated valet. With the sublime Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell leading the cast, which also includes Samantha Morton, this is going to be one to watch.

An adaptation of the famed play by August Strindberg, Miss Julie looks familiar but still extremely promising in terms of its acting, visual appearance and framing. Ullmann (Sofie, Faithless) may be just the director to reintroduce this seminal play to a new audience, and Farrell and Chastain certainly seem like suitable leads for the job. Morton, too, should provide ample dramatic pathos in her key supporting role.

The trailer is filled with tantalizing glimpses at scenes and some very steamy dialogue, »

First Look: Toronto Best Actress Candidate Jessica Chastain Stars in Liv Ullmann's 'Miss Julie' (Trailer)

22 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Now that the dust is settling around the recent flurry of fall film festival announcements, one promising entry is a Toronto world premiere: Norwegian actress-writer-director Liv Ullmann's adaptation of Swedish playwright August Strindberg’s 1888 classic "Miss Julie." The film starring Jessica Chastain ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Colin Farrell ("Saving Mr. Banks") and Samantha Morton ("A.I.") seeks a North American distributor. Whether it would make it into this year's Oscar race depends on how it plays in Toronto. French international sales agency Wild Bunch is handling sales.  Chastain has been in-demand, earning back-to-back Oscar nominations for supporting actress for "The Help" in 2012 and Best Actress in Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" in 2013. The Weinstein Company plans an awards push for the single-film version of "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" which debuted as two films »

Fantasia 2014: ‘The Harvest’ is a must-see horror with a gothic edge

21 July 2014 8:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Harvest

Written by Stephen Lancellotti

Directed by John McNaughton

USA, 2013

The Harvest is a modern gothic horror set in small-town America. On one hand embracing the mythology and horror of gothic sensibilities, the film also utilizes naturalism to create a sense of comfort and to help root emotions in reality. Katherine (Samantha Morton) and Richard (Michael Shannon) are a married couple caring for an ailing son, Andy (Charlie Tahan). Their apparent familial bliss is disrupted by the arrival of a pre-adolescent neighbor, Maryann (Natasha Calis). While Maryann’s intentions are nothing but cordial, the couple is wary of her curiosity, and tensions rise as she continually subverts their desires to stay away from their home. Maryann’s quest for truth and Andy’s friendship unravels a dark stain on the American family.

Illness is the central catalyst for the film’s tension as Andy’s sickness has become the »

Ben Whishaw Replaces Colin Firth As Voice Of Paddington

18 July 2014 4:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This winter’s Paddington has received our attention for all the wrong reasons so far. First, there was that terrifying image of the film’s stuffed bear that sparked the hilarious Creepy Paddington meme. Then, The Weinstein Company released a disappointing first trailer for the movie that made it appear to be a spiritual – albeit less gratingly non-musical – cousin to Alvin and the Chipmunks, of all things. Finally, we learned that Colin Firth, who had previously been set to voice Paddington, had dropped out of the project mid-way through production. Luckily for TWC though, it doesn’t appear that the film will be delayed, as Skyfall actor Ben Whishaw has just been set to lend his voice to the animated bear.

Though the British actor is certainly less of a household name than Firth, Whishaw’s star has been steadily rising over the past few years. He’s won fans »

Ben Whishaw Replaces Colin Firth As The Voice Of 'Paddington' Bear

17 July 2014 4:34 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“After a period of denial, we’ve chosen ‘conscious uncoupling,’” Colin Firth told Entertainment Weekly last month about his role as the voice of “Paddington” bear for The Weinstein Company’s upcoming live-action adaptation of the beloved children’s story character. The Academy Award winner had voiced the character, but dropped out of production mid-way. “It’s been bittersweet to see this delightful creature take shape and come to the sad realization that he simply doesn’t have my voice,” Firth said, but clearly the filmmakers and he had decided his voice wasn’t making the character completely come to life (hey, it happens, Spike Jonze had to throw out Samantha Morton’s voice role in “Her” and replace it with Scarlett Johansson because it just hadn’t nailed the emotion he was going for). But a replacement’s been found. You may not be able to match the name to the face, »

Fantasia Film Festival 2014: Kenny’s Most Anticipated Movies

16 July 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This is my tenth year attending the Fantasia Film Festival, though it is my first with a press pass. Gone are the days where I pay for tickets and try to snatch interview subjects for a blog no one really reads. This year’s line-up will certainly be keeping me busy. Here are five to which I’m particularly looking forward.

Welcome to New York

Written by Abel Ferrara and Chris Zois

Directed by Abel Ferrara

USA, 2014

Ferrara’s work almost always comes with the pre-requisite of controversy, and here we find him back in his own personal playground: New York City. Granted, it’s been some time since the likes of Bad Lieutenant, and the city itself has changed a great deal from Koch to Giuliani environs. It has also been home to the unspeakable financial crimes of the past decade, which makes New York all the more interesting »
