Intl Box Office Final: No. 1 Bragging Rights In China Too Close To Call As ‘Storm,’ ‘Expendables 3′ And ‘Apes’ Fight It Out

12 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

4th Update, Monday, 2:43 Pm (Pst): Who was No. 1 this weekend in China? It’s just not clear. Although Warner Bros. reported $7.7M this afternoon for Into The Storm, Fox reported $7.64M for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and it looks like Expendables 3 ended up with $7.5M (according to Rentrak). But China reporting on box office is always a bit sketchy and numbers tend to fluctuate, which may be why another final total for Into The Storm shows it pulled in only $7.16M. Warners is sticking by its $7.7M number (which includes previews). So, to be fair to both parties, it’s really too close to call.

Final grosses are in for Guardians Of The Galaxy and other films including The Maze Runner (which bows in the states next weekend), The Boxtrolls (which won’t bow until September 26th in the U.S.), Dolphin Tale 2, Lucy, Finding Fanny »

Pride Review

14 September 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Matthew Warchus

Starring: Bill Nighy, Andrew ScottPaddy Considine, Dominic West, Imelda Staunton

Running Time: 120 minutes

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: U.K. gay activists work to help miners during their lengthy strike of the National Union of Mineworkers in the summer of 1984.

Based on a true story, Pride follows a group called the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (Lgsm) who decide to raise money for the miners in a mark of solidarity. They soon discover that the miners are largely reluctant to take their donation and need to find a particular community willing to work with them.

Their search takes them to a small community in Wales where many of the residents need some time to learn to accept their new guests. The assembled cast are sublime, with the likes of Paddy Considine, Andrew Scott, Dominic West, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and many more on hand to tell the story. »

Film Review: 'Pride'

14 September 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Following the minor disappointment of Ken Loach's somewhat lethargic Jimmy's Hall (2014), left-leaning political activism returns to UK cinemas, but this time in the much livelier and fun-filled exuberance of Matthew Warchus' Queer Palm-winning agit-comedy Pride (2014). It's 1984, in the depths of the miners' strikes, and gay activist Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer) is inspired to start raising money for the miners, arguing that the two apparently disparate groups have common interests. Like the miners, the gay and lesbian community is harassed by the police and demonised by the media. Lgsm's persuasive argument - if the miners didn't fuel the power stations, "You couldn't listen to Banarama at three in the morning."

Pride filmmakers on making "a very uplifting film about defeat"

14 September 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

One of the year's biggest homegrown success stories is Pride, a warm, sharply observed comedy-drama that follows the uneasy alliance between a group of Lgbt campaigners and the striking miners' union in 1980s Britain.

Following its premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Queer Palm, buzz has gathered rapidly around this modestly budgeted gem, which boasts an ensemble cast that includes Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Andrew Scott.

Screenwriter Stephen Beresford first heard the story during the second round of pit closures in the 1990s, during an argument with a friend who was trying to convince him to support the miners.

"I was literally crowing about it, which is not an attractive part of my personality," he admits. "It's like being a gold prospector: 'Yes! These people have been left in obscurity for 30 years! This couldn't be better!'"

But it still took a long time »

Pride marches to top social media buzz chart

12 September 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Feelgood comedy drama leads the pack on social networks in the UK.

Matthew Warchus’s Pride has marched to the top of the social media buzz chart in the UK, according to Way to Blue.

The true story of gay activists who supported miners during the strike of 1984 generated more than 2,400 comments from Sept 4-10, with 43% of those expressing intent to view.

The film, starring Bill Nighy, Andrew Scott and Imelda Staunton, opens across the UK today (Sept 12). Pride received its world premiere at Cannes in May and screened at the Toronto International Film Festival last week.

The film drew more than three times as many comments as animation The Boxtrolls 3D and Anton Corbijn’s A Wanted Man, both of which open this weekend.

After a week on release, there were strong showings for light-hearted culinary drama The Hundred-Foot Journey, starring Helen Mirren, and Adam Wingard’s psychological thriller The Guest, starring [link=tt »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Matthew Warchus & Stephen Beresford on Pride

11 September 2014 2:26 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Matthew Warchus has a catalogue of work that most theatre lovers can only dream of. Primed to take over from Kevin Spacey as Artistic Director of London’s Old Vic, he can boast Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeff Goldblum, Sharon Stone and Spacey himself as just a few of those he has directed on stage. Yet he has only one feature film directing credit to his name: 1999’s Simpatico. Thank goodness, then, for Stephen Beresford whose gloriously uplifting and essential script has coaxed Warchus back to the big screen.

With Pride receiving incredible – and thoroughly deserved – acclaim across the board, we were only too eager to talk about a film based on real life events that many thought would remain forgotten.

Pride is released in UK cinemas this Friday. Check out our review here.

Meet the characters of new E4 drama Glue

10 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

Glue, the highly-anticipated new drama series created and written by BAFTA-winning writer Jack Thorne, comes to E4 on Monday 15th September at 10:00pm.

Set in a small village called Overton, it's about the murder of a boy, and how it affects his friends and the community that they live in.

Yasmine Paige plays Ruth Rosen, a 20 year old provisional police officer from a Romany background. She and her Romany mum are estranged from the travelling community, but that doesn’t stop Ruth. Not much does. Not being a young single mum, or the fact that she lives in the same village as a group of friends who no longer talk to her. She’s made of stronger stuff, or at least she thinks she is. Yasmine (represented by Curtis Brown), starred in the critically-acclaimed Submarine, and was named as a Screen International Star of Tomorrow in 2010.

Charlotte Spencer plays 19 year old Tina Fallon. »

Pride review: Breakout British hit is a warm, witty triumph

10 September 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director Matthew Warchus; Screenwriter Stephen Beresford; Starring: Bill Nighy, Andrew Scott, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Paddy Considine; Running time: 120 mins; Certificate: 15

Writing an essentially feel-good movie about a group of gay men and women in the 1980s is no mean feat for a few very obvious reasons, and yet Matthew Warchus's homegrown breakout hit Pride walks the tonal tightrope with aplomb. Its very British brand of wit and salt-of-the-earth warmth inspires Billy Elliot and Full Monty comparisons, but first-time writer Stephen Beresford doesn't gloss over the darker corners of the true story he's adapting.

We begin at the 1984 London Pride march, where meek, closeted young Joe (George MacKay) gets inadvertently and literally swept along with a group of spirited protestors led by Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer), who are fed up of their message falling on deaf ears. Out of this frustration comes the idea for Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, »

Ben Schnetzer and Faye Marsay interview: Pride

10 September 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Two of the stars of Pride chat to us about the film, Imelda Staunton, and asking Andrew Scott for a wee...

There's a big cast at work in Matthew Warchus' Pride, which finally makes its way into cinemas at the end of this week. Two of the younger stars of the film are Ben Schnetzer and Faye Marsay. Both are terrific in the movie, and both were full of beans when we sat down with them for a chat about it, on the eve of the film's premiere.

After chatting, for reasons we don't recall, about the town of Bury ("I know where I'm going this weekend", grinned New Yorker Schnetzer. "Bury's world famous market!"), we settled down for a natter about the film itself...

Let's start with the predictable question, then. Can you talk about how it came to you both?

FM: I auditioned for it in July of last year. »

Tiff: Why Matthew Warchus Returned to Film After 15 Years to Direct Rousing, Essential 'Pride'

9 September 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Pride" is a universal story about humans and some of those humans happen to be gay. While Matthew Warchus' rousing sophomore feature confronts gay issues, and issues of British working class strife, this is really a movie about tolerance and decency. This crowdpleasing winner of the Queer Palm at Cannes--where it closed the Directors' Fortnight--centers on the true UK story of a group of eager, streetwise, Lgbt youngsters who in 1984 rallied to support the underserved National Union of Mineworkers, taking their little-campaign-that-could (Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners) from the grassroots level in a small Welsh village to national fame. Warchus' first film in 15 years after 1998's commercially unsuccessful "Simpatico" boasts an impressive glut of rising stars including Joseph Gilgun, Jessie Cave, Freddie Fox, Liz White, Andrew Scott, Russell Tovey and, of course, adorable 22-year-old George MacKay who plays young Joe, the film's in-the-closet, »

Matthew Warchus and Stephen Beresford interview: Pride

9 September 2014 2:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of its release in UK cinemas, we talk to the director and writer of the funniest film of the year, Pride. It's one of the best, too.

Regular readers will know that we've been banging the drum for the film Pride for a little while now. It's a fabulous comedy, whose laughs are as fierce as its politics, and it arrives in UK cinemas this Friday.

In advance of that, we chatted to its director Matthew Warchus (returning to cinema for the first time since 1999's Simpatico) and writer Stephen Beresford. Both come from a theatre background (Warchus is taking over from Kevin Spacey at the Old Vic next, and his hugely impressive theatre credits include the Matilda musical), and both were in fine form when we met them...

What particularly intrigued me about Pride is why you chose to tell such an unusual story this way. And I »

Toronto: Kevin Costner, Jake Gyllenhaal, Dustin Hoffman And A Very Hot Chris Rock Fill Busy Fest Weekend

7 September 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Kevin Costner came into the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday for the world premiere of his powerful new drama, Black And White, a stirring story dealing with our racial divide,  but mostly a riveting human tale from writer/director Mike Binder. It’s unflinchingly honest and contains a crackerjack courtroom scene that’s priceless. In that scene, Costner delivers perhaps the best performance of his career, or at least since the period of his career circa Field Of Dreams.  It played to a packed house yesterday at Roy Thomson Hall and won a strong ovation from the crowd.

Costner told me that even the though the hard-hitting  film is not a comedy, the audience responded with laughs in just the right places and really seemed to be moved by what they saw on screen.

That said, the film is still looking for a domestic distributor and the star, who »
