'The Lobster' Director Yorgos Lanthimos To Helm Revenge Tale ‘The Killing Of A Sacred Deer’

9 February 2016 11:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There's striking when the iron is hot, and then there's Yorgos Lanthimos' ever growing schedule. While he took two years between "Dogtooth" and "The Alps," and another four until "The Lobster" which debuted on the festival circuit last year, and comes to U.S. cinemas this spring, the director is now starting to up the pace. He's already in pre-production on "The Favorite," a period drama that will star Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, and now he's got another gig brewing. Read More: Watch: U.S. Trailer For Yorgos Lanthimos' 'The Lobster' Starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly, Léa Seydoux & Ben Whishaw Deadline reports that Lanthimos will co-write and direct "The Killing Of A Sacred Deer" (good title).  Described as a psychological thriller with a supernatural touch, the story is about a young man seeking vengeance, and a doctor fighting for the survival of his family. »

8 February 2016 12:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Watch: Surreal, Macabre 'The Lobster' Has a Darkly Comic New Trailer (Review & Roundup)

8 February 2016 10:20 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Yorgos Lanthimos' first English-language effort, "The Lobster" (Alchemy, March 11), is entirely in tune with the film most of us have seen, the wittily high-concept taboo-buster "Dogtooth," which was nominated for an Oscar. Working again with his co-screenwriter on his last three films, Efthimis Filippou, Lanthimos felt ready to expand his horizons beyond what was available to him in Greece, having moved to England four years ago. Watch: Rachel Weisz and Golden Globe Nominee Jane Fonda Talk Paolo Sorrentino's 'Youth' (Exclusive Video) His multi-country cast ranges from Irishman Colin Farrell, Brits Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, and Olivia Coleman, Frenchwoman Lea Seydoux, American John C. Reilly, and Greek Angeliki Papoulia, who described the film as "funny, violent and sweet" at last year's Cannes, where "The Lobster" debuted to positive notices and won the Jury Prize. Added Reilly, "It's very subversive and funny and honest about »

Colin Farrell And Rachel Weisz Star As Anxious Singletons In New The Lobster Trailer

8 February 2016 9:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Anxious singletons and forbidden love take center stage in the latest trailer for The Lobster, the near-future Orwellian love story coming by way of Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Julieta).

If the past 24 hours have been dominated with whimsical summer blockbuster, then today’s snippet from Lanthimos’ genre hybrid ought to act as the perfect palette cleanser. Thrusting Colin Farrell’s David into a dystopian future, the narrative driving The Lobster orbits around one single and ingenious premise: singletons are forced to find love within 45 days or they’re banished to the woods and transformed into animals.

Such a bizarre twist of events naturally breeds an air of palpable awkwardness between the residents at The Hotel, with Rachel Weisz, John C. Riley, Léa Seydoux, and Ben Whishaw joining the list of hapless romantics in search of a significant other – lest the turn into woodland creatures. With an excellent premise at its core, »

Official Us Trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' Funky Romance 'The Lobster'

8 February 2016 9:18 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Have you ever danced with anybody?" Alchemy has debuted the official Us trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' latest film called The Lobster, starring Colin Farrell. The film is mostly in English, set in a dystopian future where single people end up at a villa where they must find a mate within 45 days or be turned into an animal. It's a brilliant mockery of modern society and romance, and some moviegoers will totally fall or it, while others will find it annoying. The full cast includes Rachel Weisz, Léa Seydoux, John C. Reilly and Ben Whishaw. This trailer starts to show more of the second half where Farrell ends up with a group hiding out in the forest, all in pursuit of Weisz. I seriously enjoyed this film - read my Nyff review. Enjoy! Here's the full theatrical Us trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster, direct from YouTube: In a dystopian near future, »

Read More: Cannes Review: Yorgos Lanthimos' 'The Lobster' Explores a Crazy World More Familiar Than It Looks One of the most ambitious titles to play on the festival circuit last year, Yorgos Lanthimos' "The Lobster" is finally coming to U.S. theaters this March and, trust us, you've never seen anything quite like it before. Set in somewhat of a dystopian future where society highly values relationships, the movie stars Colin Farrell as an architect who checks into a hotel after his wife leaves him. The hotel acts as a dark and twisted dating service, as the architect has just 45 days to find a new partner or else he'll be transformed into an animal of his choosing. John C. Reilly, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Olivia Colman and Lea Seydoux co-star. After picking up the film after its splashy Cannes debut last May, Alchemy will release "The Lobster »

U.S. Trailer For Yorgos Lanthimos’ ‘The Lobster’ With Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, and More

8 February 2016 6:11 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Coming out of the Cannes Film Festival, one of our favorites was Yorgos Lanthimos‘ Kubrickian, uproarious drama The Lobster. Toplined by Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw and John C. Reilly, it follows the peculiarly fascinating story in which singledom is banned and people are forced to find a match within 45 days or they turned into the animal of their choice. Finally set to arriving in the U.S. next month, we have the first domestic trailer.

We said in our review, “In this first half, The Lobster closely resembles Dogtooth and Lanthimos again exhibits his aptitude for creating insular, ruthlessly regimented microcosms through which to unleash his scathing satire. Unlike that of its predecessor, however, the attributes of this warped world are immediately familiar, even relatable. As a result, the director’s trademark deadpan humor is no longer simply droll, but uproarious – and also inescapably implicating. Lanthimos and his Dp, »

Performer of the Week: Emmy Rossum

The Performer | Emmy Rossum

The Show | Shameless

The Episode | “The F Word” (Jan. 24, 2016)

The Performance | Sunday’s episode of Shameless was titled “The F Word” after a scathing song written by Fiona’s estranged husband, Gus. While “The F Word” stood for nothing nice between the ex-lovers, Emmy Rossum’s emotional display during the hour was rated F for fantastic. Though we’ve come to expect that kind of stellar work from the actress — this isn’t her first time as our Performer of the Week — watching her nail a challenging scene still leaves us in awe.

In The Heart of the Sea Docks on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD This March, Digital in February

28 January 2016 7:09 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Ron Howard's Moby Dick-inspired epic In The Heart of the Sea starring Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, along with Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, and Ben Whishaw will set sail for Digital HD on February 23rd, followed by a Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD release a couple weeks later on March 8th.

Warner's home video treatments of In The Heart of the Sea include a Blu-ray 3D combo pack with Blu-ray, DVD and Digital; a Blu-ray combo pack with DVD and Digital; and a standalone DVD release with a lone bonus featurette: Chase & Pollard: A Man of Means and A Man of Courage. »

Fans of the latest iteration of James Bond who tune into BBC America's newest miniseries will find themselves watching something very different.
