Get A Behind The Scenes Look At The Pride Movie

16 September 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Audiences will have their sense of humanity refreshed.”

Actors Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Dominic West, director Matthew Warchus and the filmmakers of Pride discuss the background of this emotional story in the new featurette.

Critics are already cheering the film. “Breakout British hit is a warm, witty triumph,” says Digital Spy.

The Hollywood News writes, “Pride really is a thing of beauty.”

Pride is inspired by an extraordinary true story.

It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

Idris Elba and Dominic West Join Finding Dory

15 September 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

We hadn’t checked in on Disney-Pixar’s “Finding Dory” in a while. The sequel to insta-classic “Finding Nemo” has its star, Ellen DeGeneres, who is returning to the franchise to voice the easily-confused fish Dory. There have been some voice acting developments recently, but first let’s recap as to who is returning to the film along with DeGeneres. Albert Brooks and Willem Dafoe, who played the Nemo’s dad Marlin and fishtank leader Gill, respectively, are also coming back. Vicki Lewis is also returning as fishtank denizen Deb (and, by extension, Deb’s mirror image “sister” Flo). But news has been released of two new voices joining the fun–Idris Elba and Dominic West.  [ Read More ]

Review: 'Boardwalk Empire' - 'The Good Listener'

14 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Boardwalk Empire" coming up just as soon as I rob Peter to pay Paul... "Year in, year out: different dogs, same bone." -Nucky By shifting the final season into 1931, Terence Winter and company have brought us into a year where Al Capone isn't just a mob boss, but a celebrity, and when Lansky, Luciano and Siegel are making moves that will turn them into organized crime legends in their own right. The series could conceivably do a major pivot at the end and do a serialized version of "The Untouchables," with Stephen Graham and Jim True-Frost (Prez!) standing in for De Niro(*) and Costner, and/or focus heavily on the schemes of the not-so-young triumvirate of New York wiseguys. But the show has always been about Nucky's story, right or wrong, and "The Good Listener" plays interestingly off of the ways that this show's main character »

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. »

Idris Elba and Dominic West, the actors who portrayed McNulty and Stringer Bell on The Wire, have joined Pixar's Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory. West revealed the news in an interview with ShortList saying:

"I saw Idris recently. We’re both in the sequel to Finding Nemo, so we were recording that. I’m in pretty regular contact with a lot of guys from The Wire — a lot of them are godparents to my kids, so I love them dearly."

I never thought I'd see these two hardcore characters from The Wire in a Pixar film, but here they are. They join an already impressive cast that includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Willem Dafoe, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, and Ty Burrell.

The story takes place a year after the first film, and is set along the California coastline.

Pride movie review: hanging together rather than hanging separately

12 September 2014 3:39 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

One of the rare movies that gets absolutely everything right, bursting with happy-tears emotion about solidarity, friendship, and smashing bigotry. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

And then sometimes the forces of good win. Well, the good guys almost always win in The Movies, but not so much in real life.

Background: For a year in 1984-5, U.K. coal miners engaged in a massive industrial action that saw them walk out of work over government plans to close a massive number of pits. (The industry was at the time nationalized and controlled from Westminster.) Most Americans and probably many younger Brits will likely be unaware of this important historical event (unless they’ve seen the film Billy Elliot, which, like Pride, was set amidst the strike); the closest American analogy might be the 1981 strike »

Finding Dory Will Feature An Awesome The Wire Reunion

11 September 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Fans of The Wire who dreamt that the show would one day have a reunion can kind of rejoice! Dominic West has confirmed he will voice a character in Pixar.s Finding Dory alongside Idris Elba, a fellow alumni of HBO.s critically lavished drama. During a discussion with Shortlist , West revealed that the hugely anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo will have a Baltimore vibe flowing throughout it. "We.re both in the sequel to Finding Nemo," declared the actor when probed, "so we were recording that." There.s not too much more to glean from West.s remarks, but the fact that he noted the pair recorded their vocal efforts alongside each other would suggest that their characters will appear on screen together. Does this mean that there will be references to Bubbles, Carver, Lester and Omar dotted throughout the Pixar adventure? You.d hope so, but they will »

We already know that Idris Elba will be lending his distinctive vocals to Shere Khan in Jon Favreau’s Jungle Book. But according to his former Wire co-star Dominic West, he’ll also be working on Pixar’s sequel to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory.Talking to Shortlist, West revealed that he’s in regular contact with several of the actors from the much-praised HBO series and that he and Elba are both performing voice duties on Dory. We hope they've met around a microphone once or twice in the course of their work, and exchanged some chat in flawless Baltimore accents.Finding Dory, of course, will act as the follow-up to the company’s 2003 smash hit and explores Ellen DeGeneres’ character and her family. Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton are set as her parents, Charlie and Jenny, while Ty Burrell is comic whale sidekick Bailey. Oh! Oh! We speak Whale! »

Might Pixar’s upcoming sequel Finding Dory take its characters to the mean streets of Baltimore? Almost absolutely not, but good luck getting that image out of your head now that it’s been revealed that The Wire co-stars Idris Elba and Dominic West have both signed on to lend their voices to new characters in the Finding Nemo follow-up.

West, who is starring in Showtime’s ambitious fall series The Affair, dropped the news during an interview with Shortlist, simply teasing:

“We’re both in the sequel to ‘Finding Nemo,’ so we were recording that.”

No word yet on which characters the actors will be playing, but Finding Dory is set to take place at least in part along the coast of California, where scatter-brained regal tang Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) reunites with many important people from her past one year after the events of the first film. Along for the ride are Marlin, »

11 September 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Several actors who appeared on HBO’s The Wire (Michael Kenneth Williams, Michael B. Jordan, Aiden Gillan, and so forth) have gone on to continue leading a successful career on either TV and/or film, since their days on David Simon’s critically-acclaimed HBO crime drama series. Perhaps chief among the Wire alum, as far as their current popularity goes, is Idris Elba, who it turns out is going to lend his voice to Finding Dory – Pixar Animation Studios’ upcoming sequel to its Oscar-winning 2003 box office hit Finding Nemo - alongside one of his fellow Wire school graduates.
