The HeyUGuys Interview: Nikolaj Lie Kaas on The Keeper of Lost Causes

29 August 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of Danish crime thriller The Keeper of Lost Causes, we had the pleasure of speaking to the film’s leading star, Nikolaj Lie Kaas. He discussed with us his own appreciation for the aforementioned genre, and how pleased he is to currently be part of a flourishing, Danish film industry. He also tells us why he loves his craft, and about his forthcoming endeavour, the star-studded drama Child 44.

Of course The Keeper of Lost Causes is based on a Jussi Adler-Olsen novel – was it one you were familiar with before signing up to the project?

No I hadn’t read anything by him before this, I came in to this by accident. But as I became connected to the project I read his books. Though there’s nothing wrong having your own image of how to portray someone, and when I saw the script there »

Foreign Film Oscar Watch: Denmark, Germany, Venezuela, Nepal

27 August 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The trickle of foreign film submission info has become and soon it will be a flood. Over the new few days I'll be filling out a lot more of the foreign language submission charts which are written by me and my multi-lingual friend A.D. who knows so much about foreign cinema in so many atypical places he sometimes makes my head spin. But before all that charty speculation a handful of actual news items. 

Jhola from Nepal

New Official Submissions

Jhola is the official submission from Nepal. Nepal enjoyed one previous nomination in this category for Caravan (1999) but they haven't submitted regularly. Jhola is a period piece about the Nepali society custom of the wife having to set herself on fire when her husband dies and go with him. Horrific! Actress Kanchi Garima Panta is said to be very good in the lead role.

Beloved Sisters was announced today to represent Germany. »

James Gandolfini, Tom Hardy tangle with real tough guys in 'The Drop'

27 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In The Drop, Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini play two Brooklyn cousins trying to make ends meet on the fringe of gangster life without sticking their necks out too far. Gandolfini, in what is his final onscreen performance, plays Cousin Marv, the manager of the seedy bar who once was respected and feared in the neighborhood but now settles for something less. Hardy plays Bob, the detached bartender who sees and hears nothing while he makes the nightly money drops that keep the business alive.

But when Bob finds an abandoned puppy and meets a pretty woman (Noomi Rapace), his »

Ridley Scott Praises Blade Runner 2 Script and Offers a Prometheus 2 Update

25 August 2014 5:47 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Director Sir Ridley Scott has a number of projects in the pipeline, and with Exodus: Gods and Kings set to be released this December, his next looks set to be  The Martian, starring Matt Damon, for 2015.

So, where does that leave the long talked about Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus sequels?

Both movies are expected at some point in the next few years, but neither have a firm production start date as of yet. They do however have writers attached, with Green Lantern’s Michael Green the latest to be attached to a Blade Runner follow-up. In a recent interview, Scott was quick to praise the now finished script.

“It’s written and it’s damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years—despite the accident,” he said, referring to Harrison Ford’s accident on the set of Star Wars. So yes, that will happen. »

'Prometheus 2' May Be Postponed by 'Blade Runner 2'

25 August 2014 4:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Ridley Scott has quite a number of projects on his slate, including The Martian, the Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2. The filmmaker reveals in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly that all of those projects are written, although there may be some scheduling issues.

Back in May, Alcon Entertainment officially asked Harrison Ford to return as Deckard in the Untitled Blade Runner Project, and the filmmaker later confirmed that the actor will be involved.

"It's written and it's damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years - despite the accident (referring to Ford's Star Wars injury). So yes, that will happen."

The filmmaker claims that Blade Runner 2 may go into production soon after his next project, The Martian, which may not leave much time for him to make Prometheus 2, which is already slated for release on March 4, 2016.

The Drop Clips and Images Featuring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, and James Gandolfini in One of His Final Roles

20 August 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fox Searchlight has released three new clips and some new images from The Drop.  In the film Tom Hardy plays Bob, a former criminal and current bartender working at a bar that serves as a money “drop” for local gangsters.  When the bar gets robbed, Bob and his cousin/employer Marv (James Gandolfini) find themselves in the crosshairs of an investigation and the criminal underworld. I could go either way on this movie.  It looks like a perfectly good thriller that has been marinating a bit too long in the “tough guys in a tough neighborhood doing tough things” tropes that a lot of filmmakers follow too far down the rabbit hole.  On the other hand it also looks like it might balance that out with a genuinely deft touch.  It also has a great cast and a well-regarded director in Bullhead helmer Michaël R. Roskam and it marks one of Gandolfini's final performances. »

Tom Hardy And Noomi Rapace Name A Puppy In New Clip From The Drop

14 August 2014 3:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I think we can all agree that putting Tom Hardy in a movie with a puppy is not exactly a hard sell. Who would not want to see Tom Hardy carrying around a puppy for two hours? But of course there has to be more to The Drop than that, right? Boasting a cast that includes Noomi Rapace and James GandolfiniThe Drop is shaping up to be one of the more anticipated films to hit theatres as we move into Oscar-bait season.

In the latest clip from the film, though, Tom Hardy and his puppy play a central role. Hardy’s down-on-his-luck bartender has been mixed up in a robbery, and manages to also obtain an abused pitbull puppy that he takes a shine to. Noomi Rapace is going to have her own way when it comes to naming the dog, though. It’s a sweet clip that features »

Watch a Clip from 'The Drop' Starring Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace

14 August 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One movie I'm looking forward to at this year's Toronto Film Festival is Michael R. Roskam's The Drop, written by Dennis Lehane (based upon his short story "Animal Rescue") and staring Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace, James Frecheville, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz and Ann Dowd. Today the first clip from the movie featuring Hardy and Rapace has premiered online. The Drop takes an inside look at Organized crime's use of local New York City bars as money-laundering 'drops'. When lonely Brooklyn bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) uncovers a drop of a different sort in the form of a battered pit bull puppy that he rescues from certain death, he comes into contact with Nadia (Rapace), a mysterious woman hiding a dark past. Following its Toronto premiere, the film hits theaters on September 19. Watch the clip below. sb id="975531" height="360" width="640" »

"The Tom Hardy Puppy Party" aka "The Drop" is coming to theatres next month, and it fills two crucial Playlist criteria for highlighting movies: it stars Tom Hardy and it has puppies.

13 August 2014 5:48 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ridely Scott has been quoted saying that it will be a direct sequel to the first film, Prometheus: “I know where it’s going. I know that to keep [David] alive is essential and to keep [Elizabeth] alive is essential and to go where they came from, not where I came from, is essential..." Noomi Rapace, who will be reprising her role as Elizabeth, told The Playlist: “There are all these religious aspects and there are very interesting conversations…there are a lot of things to explore in there and to continue." Writer Damon Lindelof says there are lots of unanswered questions left from the first film: “Ridley was very interested in talking about, ‘What are the answers to the questions that Prometheus is posing that are not necessarily definitively spelled out in the body of Prometheus?’” He also discussed how Prometheus was a quasi-prequel to Alien: “This movie has two »

8 August 2014 2:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’m sure that you have seen the pictures floating about the Internet for the past year or so of Tom Hardy carrying around an adorable pitbull puppy. As heartwarming as those photos are, they are also in service of a new thriller starring Hardy and the aforementioned animal. Today, the first clip from The Drop has popped up on the Internet, telling us a bit more about the film than just “Tom Hardy + puppy = adorable.”

The Drop tells the story of a Brooklyn bartender (Hardy) who becomes attached to an abused pitbull puppy that falls into his arms. Things are not going to be simple for the pair, however, as this clip between Hardy and co-star Matthias Schoenaerts demonstrates. If he wants to hang onto the dog, he’s going to have to pay for the privilege. From the looks of things, this will end up costing him more »
