With the film headed for festivals such as Venice and Toronto, we had thought we might see a trailer for Tom Hooper’s new film, The Danish Girl, which stars Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander.

Nicole Kidman, Tomas Alfredson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Charlize Theron have all been linked and unlinked at various stages but now has Redmayne in the title role.He plays Einar Wegener, a Danish-born artist who was one of the first known people to undergo sex reassignment surgery. Born male, she underwent a series of experimental surgeries in Germany, beginning in 1930 and changed her name to Lili Elbe. Vikander is Wegener's wife, Gerda, who saw their relationship change but always supported Lili, »

Suffragette Releases Poster And Video For Women’s Equality Day

26 August 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

To help celebrate Women’s Equality Day, Suffragette has released their official poster, and a special video. It’s something of a no-brainer as far as marketing efforts go, and it conveniently fits with the films release (October 23rd limited), but it’s also a pretty cool effort.

This one might have a built-in, PC shield against critics, but everything that has come out so far seems to indicate that it’s also a legitimately solid film. While a lot of people will obviously cite Meryl Streep as a surefire indicator that we’re working with a quality effort, I would suggest that Carey Mulligan, who has to carry a fair amount of the film, is going to be the real test. She’s done a lot of good work before, and if she delivers here, this one is going to be good.

Take a look below, and keep this one on your radar. »

26 August 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Every daughter should know this history, every son write it on his own heart. – Meryl Streep

I come to ask you to help to win this fight. If we win it, this hardest of all fights, then, to be sure, in the future it is going to be made easier for women all over the world to win their fight when their time comes. – Emmeline Pankhurst (1913)

On August 26, 1920 the United States government accorded women the right to vote.

Each year, the President of the United States designates August 26 as Women’s Equality Day to commemorate this landmark decision.

In celebration of the 95th anniversary of the historic moment for equal rights, Focus Features has released the U.S. theatrical poster for Suffragette.

The moving and powerful Suffragette shines a light on women who risked everything for the right to vote, in early-20th century Britain.

The cast includes Academy Award »

Sam Mendes says “Bond has been rebooted” for Spectre

15 August 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the latest featurette focussing on the women of Spectre [watch it here], Entertainment Weekly caught up with director Sam Mendes, who suggested that Bond “has been rebooted” with Skyfall, and the upcoming 24th adventure will explore 007’s origin story.

“Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie,” states Mendes. “This is only the beginning of the story. The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt there was an opportunity there: What made him? And who were the people who affected him along the way? You’re sort of telling the story backwards of how Bond became Bond.”

13 August 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While moviegoers continue to deliberate on exactly who will be singing the film’s main theme song, MGM and Sony have peeled back the curtain on a new Spectre featurette, one which spotlights the film’s new female recruits.

Narrated by Monica Bellucci and the award-winning Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Color), here the newcomers offer up new information relating to their respective characters following their formal introduction some months ago. Up first is Bellucci’s Lucia Sciarra, who is on board to play “an Italian widow with secrets. Her mafioso husband is killed and she risks the same thing happening to her.” At 50 years of age, Bellucci is bringing a certain tenacity and maturity to her role in Spectre, with director Sam Mendes adding that the actress has that “certain amount of life experience and maturity, and she’s the whole package, really.”
