You could argue – as many have already been doing – that Spike Lee’s contentious remake of Park Chan-wook’s 2003 masterpiece Oldboy is somewhat pointless and ill-judged, reinforcing the criticism of contemporary Hollywood for being so unimaginative at times. However the only fair way to judge this retelling is to treat it as a film of its own merit, and attempt to distance yourself away from what came before. Yet even when doing so, you’re still left with a badly structured, underwhelming piece of cinema, that fails to engage and compel its audience, despite the wealth to this fascinating narrative.
On one fateful, unsuspecting evening, the troubled, alcoholic Joe Doucett (Josh Brolin) is kidnapped by a mystery woman, where he is taken to a soulless, solitary confinement. Confused of his whereabouts, Joe then proceeds to spend the next 20 years locked up in this very room, while in the outside world »

The drama picks up with a 17-year-old Ginsberg as he embarks on his first year at Columbia University. There he meets charismatic rebel Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan), who introduces him to fellow Beat poets William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac and becomes his first great unrequited love.
Digital Spy sat down with Radcliffe and DeHaan to discuss their research for the roles of Ginsberg and Carr, and their much-discussed "hot" kissing scene.
After the long winter, when the brutal chill of February has hit and the novelty of Valentine's Day has passed, it might be just the perfect time for some good, old fashioned bodice ripping. In this new trailer for "In Secret," Elizabeth Olsen and Oscar Isaac plot and scheme and fall into one another's beds, causing quite the 19th century scandal. Formerly titled "Terese," the film is based on Emile Zola's novel, "Therese Raquin" a cautionary tale of obsession, adultery and revenge set in 1860s Paris. Terese (Olsen) is married off to her sickly cousin Camille (Tom Felton of the “Harry Potter” franchise) and finds herself trapped in a marriage devoid of emotional and physical love. When she meets her husband's childhood friend Laurent, their obvious attraction leads to a passionate affair with tragic consequences. Jessica Lange plays Madame Raquin, Camille's mother and Terese' aunt, who discovers the lovers' secrets. »

Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac, and Tom Felton star as the leading trio in the adaptation of Émile Zola’s original novel, Thérèse Raquin. And now Roadside has released the first trailer for the newly-titled film over on Apple.

Therese (Elizabeth Olsen of “Martha Marcy May Marlene”), a sexually repressed beautiful young woman, is trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille (Tom Felton of the “Harry Potter” franchise), by her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin (two-time Academy Award winner Jessica Lange).

Elizabeth Olsen is currently going from strength to strength. AFter appearing in indie darlings such as Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene and Kill Your Darlings, she’s hooked upcoming roles in big blockbusters Godzilla and The Avengers; Age Of Ultron. Another of her upcoming films is In Secret in which she plays a young woman forced into a marriage that provides her with no sexual satisfaction whatsoever. Tom Felon plays her loveless husband who makes the big mistake of introducing Olsen to his childhood friend, played by Oscar Isaac. Isaac and Olsen embark on a passionate affair and are soon plotting the murder of Felton’s character. Unfortunately, Felton’s mother (Jessica Lange) becomes increasingly suspicious and Olsen is swamped by guilt.
It looks like a pretty good period thriller with some strong performances. Unfortunately, this trailer gives away a hell of a lot of plot and the sexless marriage parts »

Elizabeth Olsen and Oscar Isaac steam up the screen in this latest look at Roadside Attractions’ Emile Zola adaptation, “In Secret.” The film, previously titled “Therese Raquin” after its source material and title character (Olsen), tells the familiar story of a girl betrothed into a sexless marriage and finding her only escape in murder and betrayal.

When this tale of obsessive love, passion, murder and suspicion was first announced, it was going under Therese Raquin, the name of the novel – and later play – from which it was adapted. But as the trailer arrives showcasing the work of Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac, Tom Felton and Jessica Lange, the title is now In Secret. Check out the first promo over at Apple’s site.With Charlie Stratton adapting and directing this version of Emile Zola’s book (and Neal Bell’s theatrical work), In Secret finds Olsen as Therese, a sexually repressed and beautiful young woman who is trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille (Tom Felton) by her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin (Jessica Lange).Therese spends her days confined behind the counter of a small shop and her evenings watching Madame play dominos with an eclectic group.

With how front and center his role in Inside Llewyn Davis is, Oscar Isaac runs the risk of being called Llewyn by strangers for the rest of his life. First up to rectify that is In Secret, which comes out on February 21 of next year. A period drama–erotic thriller hybrid, it stars Elizabeth Olsen as a young woman in a loveless marriage with her cousin, who falls for a sexy painter, played by Isaac. It is based on Émile Zola's 1867 novel Thérèse Raquin, though it reads like a cinephile's attempt at fan fiction. »

Love a good, sexy movie about an affair where one spouse ends up dead? Then here's In Secret (formerly known as Thérèse), which is based on the 19th-century novel Thérèse Raquin by Emile Zola. Elizabeth Olsen plays Thérèse, who is forced into an unhappy marriage to her cousin Camille (Harry Potter's Tom Felton) and soon falls easily into the arms of sexy painter Laurent (Oscar Isaac). When their affair heats up, Camille ends up dead at the hands of the lovers. Riddled with guilt, Thérèse can't exactly move on with Laurent, though she tries. Part of that inability is due to the snooping around of Camille's suspicious, grieving mother (Jessica Lange). It's fun seeing Lange out of American Horror Story but still stirring up trouble, and Isaac and Olsen's chemistry is particularly scorching, even for the 1800s. In Secret comes out Feb. 21, and you can watch the trailer after the jump. »

Famed author Émile Zola's controversial novel Therese Raquin comes to life on the silver screen next year with In Secret, which was formerly known as Therese. Roadside Attractions has released the first trailer for this adaptation, starring Elizabeth Olsen as Therese, a repressed married woman who falls for a childhood friend (Oscar Isaac) of her husband (Tom Felton). Jessica Lange, Mackenzie Crook and Shirley Henderson co-star in director Charlie Stratton's romance, arriving in theaters February 21.

The first trailer for director Charlie Startton’s upcoming drama In Secret has been released. Based on the Emile Zola novel Therese Raquin and previously titled Therese, the film stars Elizabeth Olsen as a young woman trapped in an arranged marriage who conspires with her lover to dispose of her sickly cousin husband. Oscar Isaac plays the lover, Harry Potter’s Tom Felton plays the husband, and Jessica Lange plays Olsen’s aunt. I caught the film at the Toronto International Film Festival and while the performances are solid, it becomes a bit of a chore when the story starts revolving around two terrible characters feeling terrible about being terrible. This trailer pits the film as more of a thriller, but in actuality it’s more of a psychological drama. Hit the jump to watch the trailer and click here to read my full review. The film also stars Shirley Henderson, »

"I want to fall asleep in your arms..." Roadside has debuted the first official trailer for In Secret, an indie romantic thriller starring Elizabeth Olsen at the center of a sultry Parisian love triangle. The two lovers are Oscar Isaac, who is getting plenty of attention starring in Inside Llewyn Davis, and Tom Felton, last seen in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. While this starts out slow, it picks up by the end with intriguing plot twists (they do reveal quite a bit) and gorgeous cinematography in the second half. Despite the big twist being revealed (warning!) in this trailer, I'm still interested in checking it out. Something about that Olsen. Here's the first official trailer for Charlie Stratton's In Secret, originally from Apple: Based on Émile Zola's scandalous novel, Thérèse Raquin, Charlie Stratton's In Secret is a tale of obsessive love, adultery and revenge »

There isn't much secrecy in this trailer for In Secret, which features rising stars Oscar Isaac, Elizabeth Olsen, and Tom Felton in the dramatic crime thriller based on the play by Neal Bell. I guess that's how a lot of play's are, in that the performances are more important than the story beats. Certainly with the aformentioned cast that could be the selling point, especially with veteran thespian Jessica Lange added into the mix. Felton, for his part, is near unrecognizeable from his Harry »

It’s somewhat hard to believe that Kill Your Darlings is director John Krokidas’ debut feature film, in what is an accomplished, compelling piece of cinema, of a scandalous murder that drew the renowned poets of the beat generation together. A story we can’t quite believe we haven’t seen on the big screen before – a sentiment that Krokidas echoes himself.
We had the pleasure of sitting down to discuss the title with him – and in spite of his tonsillitis he was suffering from, he discusses the conspiracy theories surrounding this incredible tale and why he chose to tell it from Allen Ginsberg’s perspective as opposed to Lucien Carr’s. He also tells us about his intimate bond he formed with lead star Daniel Radcliffe, and how this cast dramatically changed, from once having Jesse Eisenberg in the main role.

Director: John Krokidas.
Running Time: 104 minutes.
Daniel Radcliffe is one smart cookie. Here is a man who has picked his post-Potter projects very well. His choices have exceeded expectation in terms of critical acclaim (A Young Doctor’s Handbook) and box office success (The Woman In Black), and he’s such a likeable chap to boot. So, it’s thrilling to say that playing a young Allen Ginsberg is the best thing he could have done because he, and the film he leads, are brilliant.
Whether you’re a fan of the Beat Generation or not, John Krokidas presents a character-led drama that is lighter than you might expect, »

Errr, so, Spike Lee’s Oldboy didn’t even make $1 million over the long weekend in North America. This is despite big names such as Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharito Copley and Samuel Jackson starring in the feature based on 2003s twisted revenge classic from Park Chan-wook. This was the worst film opening over the Thanksgiving weekend ever, taking an estimated $850,000. However, the movie has oddly not had a nationwide release. Even so, it’s almost unheard of for a film to not take in $1 million. How does that even happen?!?!
This just adds to the negative press the Oldboy remake has received over the poster fiasco last week, that you can read about here.
Has anyone over in the Us seen Oldboy? Is the bad press deserved? Let us know as it arrives in the UK this Friday.

Well folks, it is finally here, the day we get to finally see what has become of Oldboy, Spike Lee’s remake of the much revered Korean film that left many film fans speechless. I went into the original Oldboy not really knowing anything about it and by the end credits, wanted to stand up in the theater and give it a standing ovation. The film, about a man’s revenge to find out who imprisoned him for 15 years, while not on the surface, seemed like a film that was going to resonate…until the ending. Oh that ending, we’ve talked about that ending quite a bit here at Gtbp and for good reason. It’s simply one of the best, most brazen f**ked up moments in cinema. But it also tied up a movie, »

Elizabeth Olsen can expect plenty of The Avengers: Age Of Ultron questions over the coming weeks and months, and has been only too happy to discuss her character Scarlet Witch in increasing levels of detail… While there have been question marks over just what powers Scarlet Witch will have in the new film (there are legal issues as to which specific version of the character falls under the banner of Marvel or Fox), Olsen has hinted at what she might be able to do… “She's nuts, she's crazy,” says Olsen of her character. “She has more...
