First Look At Star Wars' Mark Hamill In Kingsman: The Secret Service

18 hours ago | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Yes, what you see above is indeed how Mark Hamill meets his maker in the pretty amusing opening to The Secret Service comic book. However, the still above confirms that the Star Wars Episode VII actor will indead be playing Doctor Arnold. There do seem to be some similarities between the two (in that he's kidnapped), but even if his character does go out the same way, the fact that he's no longer playing himself indicates a very different tone and perhaps some major changes to the plot. We'll just have to wait and see. Either way, it's good to see Hamill doing something which isn't Luke Skywalker or Joker related, wouldn't you agree? Sound off with your thoughts below.  Starring Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Michael Caine, Samuel L. Jackson, and Mark StrongKingsman: The Secret Service is set to be released on October 24th, 2014. »

Colin Firth and Mark Strong Spook Nicole Kidman in Trailer for 'Before I Go to Sleep'

25 July 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Somewhere between this year’s “The Railway Man” and next year’s “Genius,” in a loose and unintended trilogy of Nicole Kidman-Colin Firth collaborations, comes “Before I Go to Sleep.” Breaking up the biopic trend of the other two films, their next collaboration is a full-blown thriller directed by Rowan Joffe (“Brighton Rock”). Kidman plays a woman whose short-term memory loss causes her to question her environment. A previous trailer shows her husband (Firth), trying to assuage her fears, who is undercut by a doctor (Mark Strong). Who's on her side? Surprise: shades of Hitchcock's "Suspicion," her beau is a little hard to trust. The preview sells a high class thriller of the sort where violence and sexual intrigue play a larger part than mere titillation. There is, of course, the chance that things could quickly go off the (ahem) rails, but Joffe earned points with 2010’s “Brighton Rock” — which, »

UK Trailer Hits Before I Go to Sleep

25 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

It's been well over a year since we've had anything to report about Rowan Joffe's Before I Go to Sleep, and today the long-awaited trailer has finally come across our desk here at Dread. It comes courtesy of the UK, and has definitely served to whet our appetite for the Memento-like thrills and chills. Dig it!

Look for Before I Go to Sleep in theaters on September 12th.

Written and directed by Joffe, the thriller stars Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong.


Before I Go to Sleep is based on the worldwide bestselling novel about a north London woman who wakes up every morning remembering nothing. Her husband tells her she suffered a trauma and that she dare not leave home. She sneaks off to a doctor who gives her a small digital recorder and urges her to play back her thoughts day after day in hopes of re-integrating her mind. »

Watch: Nicole Kidman Needs To Remember In New Trailer For 'Before I Go To Sleep'

25 July 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The elusive nature of memory can certainly be good fodder for drama. The idea of things remembered, forgotten or selectively recalled motivating the actions of a character is rich territory, but unfortunately, it doesn't really seem to be put to good effect in the forthcoming "Before I Go To Sleep," even when navigated by a cast like this. Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong are the leading trio in this Ridley Scott-produced thriller that follows a woman with an unusual problem: every time she goes to sleep, she wakes up with total amnesia, unable to remember anything about her life. Could a therapist be the one to lead her back to a normal life? Is her husband hiding dark secrets? Guess we'll see, but outside of the concept, this looks like standard genre fare at best. "Before I Go To Sleep" opens on September 12th. Watch below. [EW/Empire] »

Nicole Kidman tries to remember in 'Before I Go to Sleep' trailer

24 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

In the new teaser for Before I Go to Sleep, Nicole Kidman plays a traumatized woman who can’t remember the violent attack she suffered 10 years ago. Her husband (Colin Firth) and doctor (Mark Strong) say they only want to help her recover, but every morning, when she wakes up, her memory of everything is gone. So she starts to document her days, Memento style, so that each day slowly brings her closer to the truth.

The debut 2011 novel from S.J. Watson was a best-seller, and Ridley Scott’s production company quickly nabbed its rights. Rowan Joffe, who wrote 28 Weeks Later, »

‘Before I Go To Sleep’ Remembers To Release A Poster

24 July 2014 2:24 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Based on the best selling debut novel from Steve Watson, Before I Go To Sleep, takes that classic plot device of amnesia in order to deliver a thriller at our door. Starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong, the film sees Kidman having to put the pieces of her life back together but soon realises her life may all be a lie. Although not the most original selling point, the strong cast ensures that we’ll be seeing some great performances. Rowan Joffe, the screenwriter behind 28 Weeks Later and The American, steps up to direct his second feature film after 2010′s Brighton Rock. Can this do for him what Memento did for Nolan and what 51 First Dates did for Peter Segal? Who knows?

The poster captures the idea of looking at things from different perspectives, as well as suggesting that not everyone is who they seem. No doubt readers »

Exclusive Before I Go To Sleep Poster

23 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The last time Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman shared a screen it was in a solid relationship in The Railway Man. Things are a little less calm this time. Before I Go To Sleep promises enough psychological shenanigans to send even the strongest couple into therapy, and its new poster, a Persona-like effort, gives a flavour of the turmoil beneath the surface. Rowan 'son of Roland' Joffé's second feature, the dark-hued thriller sees Kidman play the amnesiac Christine Lucas. Her burden is to solve a dark riddle, Memento-style, despite being stricken with total amnesia every 24 hours. She's understandably reliant on husband Ben's (Firth) help with her frustrating life. Could Mark Strong's doctor be the man to help them out of the maze?Before I Go To Sleep is based on the bestselling mystery potboiler by first-time author S.J. Watson and Joffé promises to mine golden-age Hollywood traditions in his interpretation. »

‘The Imitation Game’ Trailer: Benedict Cumberbatch Is Very Upset, Historical

21 July 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Plink. Plink. Plink. Plink. Plink. What’s that? Oh, just the sound that signals that a serious, dangerous, historical trailer is coming on through (consider it on par with the “brrrrannngghhh” of setting a mood). Plink. Plink. Pllllunk. The Imitation Game is indeed serious, dangerous, and historical — fortunately for all involved, it also looks pretty good. After years of development back and forth (remember when Leonardo DiCaprio was going to star in this?), Graham Moore‘s Black List script about the life of Alan Turing (“the father of computer science”) is finally an actual movie with a bunch of actual stars and enough street cred to push it into “hey, maybe we need to think about awards or whatever” territory. Cool beans, and maybe it will get kids interested in computer science! It’s a win-win!

Watch The Imitation Game Trailer Starring Benedict Cumberbatch; Drama Will Open the 58th London Film Festival

21 July 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The Weinstein Company has released the first The Imitation Game trailer.  The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, a brilliant cryptanalyst whose expertise cracked Germany’s “Enigma code” and helped turn the tide of World War II for the Allies, but his homosexuality made him a target of persecution.  Judging by this trailer, I'm sure there will be superficial Sherlock comparisons since Turing is brilliant but off-putting to those around him, but I think this looks like a solid World War II drama with some good performances. Hit the jump to check out The Imitation Game trailer.  The film opens November 21st, and also stars Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Allen Leech, and Matthew Beard.  Additionally, The Imitation Game will open the 58th BFI London Film Festival on October 8th.

Watch: Benedict Cumberbatch breaks the code in first trailer for The Imitation Game

21 July 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Considering The Weinstein Company paid a record $7 million to secure the rights earlier this year, it's no surprise that The Imitation Game has gone on to become one of the most highly anticipated films of 2014. The first trailer for the biopic arrived today, fast on the heels of the announcement that film will have its European premiere as the BFI Film Festival opener in October. The big question then becomes is there still a chance the early Oscar contender could hit Tiff in September for its world debut?

The film sees Benedict Cumberbatch star as mathematician Alan Turing, the man behind the cracking of the German's WWII Enigma code and the British team at the top-secret code-breaking centre at Bletchley Park. Though Turing is credited with significantly shortened the war and saving thousands upon thousands of lives across the world, he went on to be persecuted for his homosexuality, rather than lauded for his contributions, »

First Trailers: "The Imitation Game"

21 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The first footage has arrived for the potential major awards contender "The Imitation Game" in the form of two quite different trailers. The Weinstein Company and Studio Canal have released a U.S. trailer and a U.K. teaser respectively for Morten Tyldum's film, a biopic of computer genius and WWII hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch).

Keira Knightley, Mark Strong, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Rory Kinnear and Allen Leech also star in the story of Turing whose work at Bletchley Park helped cracked the German 'Enigma Code' which was essential to the Allies winning World War II. Rather than celebrated as a hero though, he was chemically castrated by his own Government and ultimately committed suicide.

The UK trailer at the top plays this very much as a straightforward thriller about the code's cracking. The U.S. trailer is a more sentimental and wider ranging piece about the impact »
