Edgar Wright Commits To Genre-Mashing Baby Driver As His Next Film

22 July 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Edgar Wright is finally rebounding from the Ant-Man fiasco, getting back on the horse and making a new movie. His last, The World's End, was a summer tonic in 2013, but Ant-Man has made fans feel like it's been ages since we've seen a new Wright film. Fortunately, he's resurrecting an old project and reuniting with some old friends. Deadline reports that Edgar Wright is reuniting with Working Title Films for Baby Driver. We heard about this project years ago as something Wright would tackle after completing the Cornetto trilogy that included Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End. Deadline describes the mystery project as "a collision of crime, action, music and sound" and claims Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are not currently involved, but, come on, they totally will be. For that matter, you can bet your sweet ass Bill Nighy will show up as well. So, »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 14th 2014

In a canny move surprising few, Amazon have gone and echoed a pattern Netflix began around a year ago and nabbed a series from the Us where they will add an episode each week the day after its Us broadcast. This practice worked well with Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn in the past year and the publicity it got could well be the reason why you might encounter so many people who are only now making their way through five seasons of Breaking Bad via Netflix. So the show in question which be all exclusive up in here is the new Steven Spielberg/Halle Berry joint called Extant.

I knew nothing about this show going in and that is perhaps the best way to view it. I’m not going to claim this is the new Lost or whatever at this point but the first episode was ‘promising »

’90s Redux: Bill Nighy May Be Broadway-Bound In Hare’s ‘Skylight’; `Master Class’ Helmer Mike Nichols Talks Shop for HBO

11 July 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Union Jack will be flying over Broadway big-time this coming season, as talk heats up about bringing Bill Nighy, Carey Mulligan and the acclaimed National Theatre revival of David Hare’s Skylight to New York in the spring. I wrote a few weeks ago that while the Stephen Daldry production will be telecast in the fall by Nt Live, far better would be the chance to see Hare’s extraordinarily moving play — about the expired romance between an older, self-made businessman and an idealistic young teacher, roles created by Michael Gambon and Lia Williams — on Broadway. This week the show, which […] »

'The Hundred-Foot Journey' Is the Latest Entry in the East-Meets-West Canon

8 July 2014 7:11 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

What hath "Slumdog Millionaire" wrought?  The Oscar-winning heartstring tugger was a glimpse into a brand-new world for many moviegoers and, of course, as it is wont to do, Hollywood followed up on that success with several more films focusing in some way or another on India. In particular, it seems, Tinseltown has gotten fond of the east-meets-west motif. There was Ang Lee's worldwide Oscar-winner "Life of Pi," based on the spiritual bestseller. John Madden's "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," in which a parade of fantastic older British actors (including Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy and Maggie Smith) played a group of pensioners who travelled to India for a stay at an luxury hotel that ended up being not quite what they expected.  (A sequel could well be on its way.)  And then there was "Million Dollar Arm," Disney's feel-gooder that brought India to the U.S. through the story »

Theatre Review: David Hare’s ‘Skylight’

8 July 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Stephen Daldry

Starring: Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy, Matthew Beard

Synopsis: On a cold London evening, teacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant, a successful restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their relationship only to find themselves stuck in a battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires. 

Among the tourists and unremitting chaos of Leicester Square lies Wyndham’s Theatre and David Hare’s tremendous understated, absorbing Skylight starring Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy and Matthew Beard.

This revival of the play sees Nighy return to the role of Tom Sergeant, the part he took over from Michael Gambon in its original 1996 National Theatre run. What makes this new production even more special is Carey Mulligan in her West End debut as Kyra Hollis. That’s not the end of the top talent either as Stephen Daldry directs, »

Our Top 5 Picks on Who Could Play the Master on Doctor Who

6 July 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ever since Former Doctor Who Star Sylvester McCoy revealed that he had some inside information on the upcoming season 8 episodes of the popular BBC series--which will feature Peter Capaldi stepping into the iconic role of the heroic Time Lord—there has been speculation that the Doctor’s greatest rival, the Master, will be back. If he does return, who should play him?

Back in March,  Sylvester Mc Coy--who portrayed the enigmatic seventh Doctor in the classic Doctor Who series—gave an interview with Zap2it at the Newcastle Film and Comic Convention, where he reported that he had inside information on the return of the Doctor’s arch rival, the Master. According to McCoy, the newest incarnation of the Master will be “very, very  scary”.  Furthermore, there is a picture from this season of a shrunken Tardis (see below) and we all know that in the classic series, the Master loved to shrink things. »

Michael Caine, Jane Fonda And Harvey Keitel Star In ‘Youth In Venice’

3 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A truly diverse cast has been assembled by director Paolo Sorrentino for Youth In Venice, the follow up to his critically-lauded Italian odyssey The Great Beauty. Boasting two of the world’s best jobbing actors, Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel, the story concerns a pensionable film director and composer who go on a break to the mountains, where presumably some stunning scenery will fuse with meditations on life and art. The subject matter may have less discerning cinemagoers rolling their eyes, but the pairing of these performers from very different backgrounds should generate enough electricity to power the French Riviera come festival season.

Sorrentino hasn’t skimped on the rest of the cast either, with Jane Fonda making one of her sporadic returns to the big screen. Rachel Weisz, last seen romancing the elderly with Bill Nighy in Page Eight, and Paul Dano (Prisoners) round off the talent-heavy roster. Shooting »
