First Look At Posh, From An Education Director Lone Scherfig

24 February 2014 12:06 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A film is a window into the life of another, and, in the case of the upcoming Posh, a window into the lives of the upper-class elite. Director Lone Scherfig (An Education) brings the tale of rich people doing very terrible things to theaters this fall, with a screenplay written by Laura Wade based on her 2010 play of the same name.

Max Irons and Sam Claflin star as Oxford University freshmen who are determined to join the shadowy Riot Club – a place that holds a near-mythic status for aiding in the upward social ladder climb of its members. Natalie Dormer, Jessica Brown Findlay, Holliday Grainger and Douglas Booth fill out the rest of the young cast whose starry eyed dreams of future success may or may not be dashed by the time the film is over. How much will these young adults be forced to endure before they are allowed into the secretive club? »

First look at Posh

24 February 2014 11:55 AM, PST | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

A year ago it was announced that Posh, the critically-acclaimed and controversial West End play written by Laura Wade was to be made into film.

Max Irons and Sam Claflin star as Miles and Alistair, two first year students determined to join the infamous Riot Club where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening. They can be seen here with Holliday Grainger as Lauren.

Set around the Riot Club, a drinking society made up of Oxford University's privileged elite, the film is directed by Lone Scherfig, the director of An Education and One Day, from a script written by Laura Wade.

The young cast also includes Olly Alexander, Douglas Booth, Freddie Fox, Matthew Beard, and Jessica Brown-Findlay.

Posh is scheduled to be released in September 2014. »

24 February 2014 11:24 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Prepare your best screaming voices fangirls because the first images from Lone Scherfig’s Posh have hit the internet today, and they don’t disappoint; just look at Douglas Booth’s pose! There’s more hot young acting talent in this adaptation of Laura Wade’s hit play than we know what to do with quite frankly. Booth, Sam Claflin, Max Irons, Sam Reid, Freddie Fox, Matthew Beard and Olly Alexander all star in the tale of rich boys misbehaving at Oxford University as they try to gain access to the exclusive Riot Club.

Posh is believed to be loosely based on the actions of Oxford’s Bullingdon Club; which had famous members such as Boris Johnson and David Cameron amongst its’ ranks.  Enough backstory; here’s those newly released pictures:

Posh also stars Natalie Dormer and Jessica Brown-Findlay and is released in cinemas on September 19th.

First Look at 'Posh', New Film from 'An Education' Director, Lone Scherfig

24 February 2014 8:03 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I loved Lone Scherfig's An Education, but her follow-up, One Day, was a mess so here's to hoping her upcoming feature, Posh, adapted for the screen by Laura Wade from her play of the same name, is an improvement. Based on the plot outline it certainly has the makings of something interesting. Starring the likes of Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, Jessica Brown Findlay, Sam Claflin, Max Irons and Sam Reid, Posh focuses on Miles and Alistair (Irons and Claflin), first years at Oxford University determined to join the notorious Riot Club - a place that can make or break your time in higher education and, quite possibly, life. During the course of a night at the Bull's Head pub, ambition and avarice lead them down a dark path. Today the first pictures from Posh arrive, courtesy of Empire, which spoke with Scherfig about her new film of »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #175. Lawrence Michael Levine’s Wild Canaries

5 February 2014 7:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Wild Canaries

Director: Lawrence Michael Levine

Writer: Lawrence Michael Levine

Producers: Takal, Kim Sherman, E. McCabe Walsh

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Sophia Takal, Lawrence Michael Levine, Alia Shawkat, Annie Parisse, Jason Ritter, Kevin Corrigan

One of the only eight slots for the SXSW Dramatic Comp and part of the half dozen titles presented at the U.S in Progress, we’re expecting Gabi on the Roof helmer to have fine-tuned his filmmaking skills with his third feature film which has a packed house of indie thesps and on paper proposes the sort of fun one can have while playing Clue.

Gist: Newly engaged Brooklyn couple, Barri (Sophia Takal) and Noah (Lawrence Michael Levine), are disheartened by the death of their elderly downstairs neighbor Sylvia. Though Noah sees nothing unusual about the old woman’s death, Barri suspects foul play. Sporting a trench coat and fedora, she enlists her »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #176. Lone Scherfig’s Posh

5 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Posh

Director: Lone Scherfig

Writer: Lone Scherfig

Producers: Graham Broadbent, Peter Czernin

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Sam Claflin, Natalie Dormer, Holliday Grainger

Lone Scherfig returns to burgeoning female adulthood with this adaptation of Laura Wade’s play, again employing a number of rising stars in her cast yet to receive a breakout role. While Scherfig has an intriguingly varied filmography already, we’re curious to see what she’ll do with this dramatic thriller.

Gist: Two first-year students at Oxford University join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening. .

Release Date: Universal Pictures International has the UK distribution rights and is tied up with a September release — we’re thinking that an early look might help occur prior to an eventual Fall Fest showing, leading to an eventual theatrical release stateside.

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #177. Tommy Lee Jones’ The Homesman

5 February 2014 6:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Homesman

Director: Tommy Lee Jones

Writers: Kieran Fitzgerald, Tommy Lee Jones, Wesley A. Oliver

Producers: Luc Besson, Peter Brant, Michael Fitzgerald, Tommy Lee Jones

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank, Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto, Sonja Richter, David Dencik, John Lithgow, Tim Blake Nelson, James Spader, William Fichtner

If we technically don’t include his two made for television films, this would be Tommy Lee Jones’ second, much anticipated outing — almost a decade since he delivered the exquisite The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, a thinking man’s slow-burner Western where hardened faces (both genders) converge with justice served piping hot. Jones takes on multiple duties once again for The Homesman and his cinemtagrpaher happens to be the great Rodrigo Prieto.

Gist: Based on Glendon Swarthout’s novel, this is about a claim jumper and a pioneer woman team up to escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa. »

Berlin — Tom Hiddleston, best known for “The Avengers” and “Thor: The Dark World,” has been attached to play the lead in Ben Wheatley’s “High-Rise,” which HanWay Films is selling at the European Film Market in Berlin.

Wheatley is one of the U.K.’s hottest directors, having created a stir with his provocative films “Sightseers,” “Kill List” and “A Field in England.” He is currently shooting the new season of “Doctor Who” for the BBC. »

Sundance: Sex, Science and the Comedy of Discomfort

27 January 2014 2:50 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scott Foundas: They say dogs come to resemble their owners (or vice versa), but if you hang around a film festival long enough, do you start to resemble the movies? That thought crossed my mind on Sundance’s final Sunday, when, as I was leaving a screening at the Eccles Theater, a volunteer enthusiastically congratulated me on my lead performance in the festival’s big award winner, “Whiplash,” which took both the audience award and the grand jury prize in this year’s U.S. dramatic competition. Of course, it’s flattering to be mistaken for Miles Teller, who’s a very good actor (in addition to being nine years my junior), but I couldn’t help wondering if something more mysterious was afoot.

Maybe that’s because, just the day before, I had caught up with another of this year’s Sundance breakouts, “I Origins,” in which the »
