Emma Watson's toughest role is playing a nun in new movie Colonia

25 August 2015 2:24 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Emma Watson's ''hardest part'' is playing a nun. The 25-year-old actress - who rose to fame as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise - plays Lena in political drama 'Colonia Dignidad' who is forced to join a cult run by preacher Paul Schäfer (Michael Nyqvist) as she searches for her husband who was kidnapped by the government. Emma told Daily MailOnline: ''It's the hardest part I've ever had to play. But also the most satisfying. It felt like the right thing to do.'' Set in Chile in the seventies and directed by Oscar-winner Florian Gallenberger, the film tells the true story of Emma's character who disguises herself as a nun to infiltrate a Nazi cult. 'Inglorious Bastards' actor Daniel Brühl, 37, plays Lena's husband Daniel who is taken by General Augusto Pinochet's secret police, Dina. And Emma hopes the role will be the final ''push'' that will »

'The Martian' and Michael Moore lead 2015 Toronto Film Festival selections

28 July 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate.  Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition."  It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."  Notable films that will have premiered »

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation review

24 July 2015 3:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Here's Ryan's review of a brisk action thriller...

Dougray Scott's villain perfectly summed up Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible 2. "Hunt invariably favours misdirection over confrontation," Scott's preening bad guy tells an assembly of goons. "He'll no doubt engage in some acrobatic insanity before he'll risk harming a hair on a security guard's head."

This is Tom Cruise's Impossible Missions Force agent Hunt in a nutshell: a romantic daredevil who seems to actively enjoy throwing himself off tall buildings. After nearly 20 years, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Cruise might have grown weary of his thrill-seeking alter-ego. But here he is in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (film number five), clinging to the sides of planes, making leaps from high places and hurtling around on motorbikes.

This time, Hunt comes up against the Syndicate, a shadowy »

David Gordon Green Says 'Suspiria' Would've Been "Operatic," Remake Still Happening But He Won't Direct

24 June 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Projects come and go, but one I'm disappointed it never saw the light of day is David Gordon Green's remake of Dario Argento's "Suspiria." Slated to star Isabelle Huppert, Isabelle Fuhrman, Janet McTeer, Michael Nyqvist and Antje Traue, the film was financed and ready to go before it ran into legal trouble and then wound up not getting made. And Green laments he never got his shot. Read More: The Lost, Unmade & Abandoned Projects Of Director David Gordon Green "[It] would have been the s**t… I wrote it with my sound designer. I love Argento’s film and we wrote a very faithful, extremely elegant opera… I don’t mean musical opera, but it would be incredibly heightened music, and heightened and very operatic and elegant sets," he told Crave. However, Green says his vision just wasn't in line with what studio culture was looking for. "I wanted »

Gordon Green Talks Exiting "Suspiria" Remake

24 June 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the more disappointing projects that seems to have fallen into development hell in recent years has been David Gordon Green's remake of Dario Argento's iconic horror masterpiece "Suspiria."

Isabelle Huppert, Isabelle Fuhrman, Janet McTeer, Michael Nyqvist and Antje Traue were all slated to star in the film which had financing in place, but ran afoul of legal issues and ultimately didn't get made.

In a new interview with Crave, Green says his vision for the project clashed with what studio culture was looking for:

"[It] would have been the s**t… I wrote it with my sound designer. I love Argento's film and we wrote a very faithful, extremely elegant opera… I don't mean musical opera, but it would be incredibly heightened music, and heightened and very operatic and elegant sets.

I wanted it to be a horror film. And a horror movie, at the time when we were modeling that movie, »

‘John Wick’ announces that Keanu Reeves is definitely back

23 June 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

John Wick

Written by Derek Kolstad

Directed by Chad Stahelski and David Leitch

U.S.A., 2014

As the film opens, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is breathing what appear to be his dying breaths. Battered and bruised, he stumbles out of the van he just crashed at the docks on Manhattan’s outskirts. In an instant viewers are taken back to a more pleasant time for John, back when he lived a happier life with his lovely wife, the latter eventually succumbing to an unnamed disease. A broken man without his soulmate, a glimmer of positivity arrives at his door in the shape of a puppy his wife seemingly purchased for him in anticipation of the mourning that was looming on the horizon. The bitter sweetness is short loved, shifting over the sheer bitterness when Iosef (Alife Allen), the overly cocky son of Russian mafia lord Viggo (Michael Nyqvist), kills the pup. »

Laff Review: 'The Girl In The Book' Starring Emily VanCamp Is A Remarkable, Ambitious Debut

14 June 2015 3:16 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a story that explores how both power dynamics and past traumas can affect the creative process, Marya Cohn’s “The Girl in the Book” is a remarkable, ambitious directorial debut. Emily VanCamp stars as Alice Harvey, a young woman working in the New York publishing industry, and Ana Mulvoy-Ten plays Alice 15 years ago, caught up in a complicated, abusive relationship with an older writer, Milan Daneker (Michael Nyqvist). The fallout from that relationship has followed Alice into her adult life, manifesting itself in her bad habits, writer's’ block and relationships with men. It all comes rushing back when Alice has to work on the re-release of “Waking Eyes,” the book that made Daneker famous, in which he captures “the essence of a teenage girl,” a “female Holden Caulfied.” When he re-enters her life, he wants to tenderly reminisce about old times, which is pure hell for Alice. She’s »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Emily VanCamp

27 May 2015 6:06 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

ABC

They say there are no second acts in American lives, but what did F Scott Fitzgerald know? He was dead by 44 and had crap hair. There’s overwhelming evidence to the contrary to be found, especially when you look to Hollywood – Revenge star Emily VanCamp, for instance, is very much in the thick of the big second act of her acting career.

Whilst her ABC drama series has been a huge hit, the network has cancelled it, effective with the end of its fourth season. Not that it’s getting VanCamp down, with the news barely managing to brush past her swiftly rising star. She’s already got a couple more movies wrapped, and is currently filming the third Captain America film.

She may have a bigger role in the next Marvel sequel, but even if she doesn’t VanCamp still has legions of fans leftover from Revenge (and »

100 Essential Action Scenes: One vs. Many Fights

21 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

You know an action hero is the baddest of badasses when he or she walks in and the room goes silent. The drug lord’s bodyguards, the mastermind’s henchmen, or even the foolhardy pack of drunkards outside a roadside bar stand at attention, ready for a challenge. It’s just one person. This shouldn’t be too hard. Seconds later, they’re on the ground nursing bruises, or worse, stumps where their arms and legs used to be. The One vs. Many Fight is the chance for the hero to prove »
