Movie review of 2014: Year in pictures - Oscars, Marvel, Batfleck, more

11 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It started in Wall Street and ended up in North Korea. 2014 was a year full of highs and lows in the world of cinema, with a diverse range of movies reeling in the punters, some striking visual moments that captured the present and teased the future, and several hugely saddening departures.

January

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese's collaboration The Wolf of Wall Street opens in cinemas, providing the soundtrack to 2014 with Matthew McConaughey's chest-beating humming. The black comedy became the director's highest grossing film, scooped five Oscar nominations and reminded everyone why driving under the influence is a very bad idea.

February

The world of entertainment was devastated by the tragic death of Philip Seymour Hoffman at the age of 46. The acclaimed actor, who excelled in films like Boogie Nights, Capote, The Master and Magnolia, had been working on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 at the time of his passing. »

Andrew Scott on the Golden Globe nominated Pride

23 December 2014 10:29 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The incredible true story of two unlikely groups of people coming together in solidarity is the focus of the UK comedy-drama Pride.

Now nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Picture in the Musical or Comedy category, Pride merges mostly fact with a few fictional elements to tell the story of how members of the Lgbt community in London joined forces with striking Welsh miners during the devastating 1984 mining strike.

It’s a clash of cultures as an Lgbt group in London led by Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer), the Irish ringleader of the newly-formed Lgsm: Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners and pals (played by Andrew Scott, Dominic West, and George MacKay) venture to a small Welsh mining community to deliver funds raised in support of their striking community.  At first they are met resistance and caution from the small village, but before long, they are embraced by the larger »

Scream Factory has detailed their February 2015 release of The Phantom of the Opera, starring Robert Englund:

The silver-throated Christine (Jill Schoelen, The Stepfather) enjoys success through the arrangements of her new lover (Englund)… until she realizes that he has been committing unspeakably grisly murders in her honor and won’t stop until he’s completed his masterpiece… »

New Trailer For The Second Best Marigold Hotel

17 December 2014 8:41 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The Best Marigold Hotel was a charming little drama, elevated by a great cast of renowned British actors, including Bill Nighy, Judi Dench, and the one who absolutely stole the show, Maggie Smith. The gangs back for The Second Best Marigold Hotel (slightly unfortunate name there), with Richard Gere going them this time round, and judging by the new trailer below, everybody's on fine form, especially Smith and Dev Patel, promising more of the same the second time round. Not that that's a bad thing. Released: 27th February 2015 (Irl/U.K)/ 6th March 2015 (U.S.) »

‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ Checks In With New Trailer

17 December 2014 5:16 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The sequel to Fox Searchlight’s 2012 sleeper hit, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, has registered a new trailer today that pulls the curtain back a bit more than the one we saw back in August. Richard Gere, Tamsin Greig and David Strathairn are the newest guests at the Indian inn for the “elderly and beautiful” which Dev Patel and Maggie Smith are successfully running. Patel’s Sonny is looking to expand, but it’s making more claims on his time than he has available — especially considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). The original returning cast also includes Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, Ronald Pickup, Diana Hardcastle and Lillete Dubey. Directed by John Madden from an original screenplay by Ol Parker, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel opens in the UK on February 26 and in the U.S. on March 6.

Second Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Trailer

17 December 2014 1:01 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We’d say this new trailer for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is following hot on the heels of the first promo. But that was a couple of months ago, and given the style and feel of both the original film and this new one, the latest look at the sequel has more gently ambled along.Continuing the theme of old meets new and elderly British types seeking the sun, we have Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel) looking to open a chain of Best Exotic Marigold Hotels across India. He gathers the funds for at least one, and the likes of stalwart resident Muriel (Maggie Smith) plus old pals Douglas (Bill Nighy), Evelyn (Judi Dench), Madge (Celia Imrie) and Jean (Penelope Wilton) are back to help celebrate.New this time is Richard Gere, who causes much romantic consternation among the ladies...

The Gang Are Back In New Trailer For The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

16 December 2014 2:54 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first trailer for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel sequel, aptly titled The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, has arrived online courtesy of The Daily Mail (via Collider). Directed once more by John Madden, the film picks up after the events of the 2011 movie with a touch of franchise expansion in every sense of the word.

As expected, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton and Celia Imrie all reprise their roles from the first outing, along with Dev Patel as the eager Sonny. This time around, the keen entrepreneur has his heart set on turning his rustic accommodations into a chain of hotels.

One of the key components to sequel success is, of course, the addition of fresh meat! So, there’s a couple of new names thrown in to spice up proceedings in the shape of Richard Gere, Tamsin Greig and David Strathairn.

A Franchise Begins in New Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Trailer

16 December 2014 7:27 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new trailer for director John Madden’s (Shakespeare in Love) sequel The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has been released online.  The follow-up is actually a bit meta, as Dev Patel’s Sonny sets out to franchise his popular Indian hotel by expanding and opening the aptly named Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.  Nearly all of the main cast from the first film returns, plus new additions Richard Gere and David Strathairn.  I found the original to be a sweet movie with a bit of a kick thanks to Maggie Smith’s zingers, and while the nature of sequels makes me doubt this follow-up will match the quality of that first film, the prospect of seeing this cast play off of each other once again is enticing enough. Check out the new international Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, »

I never saw the first one so I have no idea if the title for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is ridiculous or perfect, but as someone not in the know it sounds ridiculous, not that that will matter considering I think all you need here is "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" and the target audience's ears will perk up after the first movie made $136.8 million worldwide on a $10 million budget and this time around the entire gang is back for more. Director John Madden is back with Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Richard Gere, Judi Dench, Celia Imrie, Dev Patel, Tamsin Greig, David Strathairn and Penelope Wilton making up the cast. Here's the plot: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 (or The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) is the expansionist dream of Sonny Kapoor, and its making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, »

In the age of everything-gets-a-sequel, even your Aunt's favorite movie "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" gets a followup. The first entry was a box office hit a couple years back, particularly overseas where it roped in $90 million all on its own.
