Everyone Says I Love Woody – What Romantic Comedies Owe to Mr. Allen

18 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Woody Allen’s back catalogue casts a long shadow across contemporary romantic comedy. His tropes and trademarks are as ingrained into the collective sense memory as mother’s perfume. At the first tremble of a clarinet, mutter about mortality or meander across a Manhattan neighbourhood, we inhale the nostalgia like Bisto kids. And arguably we’d never have met Harry and Sally, walked the Sidewalks of New York or dined alongside Friends with Money without his influence.

The Longest Week is peppered with Woody base notes. Over the course of seven days, Conrad (Jason Bateman) has been stripped of the safety net of his wealth and the cushion of his ego, moved in with his cynical best friend (Billy Crudup) and accidentally fallen in love with his girl (Olivia Wilde). His eventual dilemma – to be or not to be a better man – is as timeless as Annie Hall.

New on DVD Blu-ray August 26, 2014: 'Belle,' 'Portlandia,' 'Walking Dead'

25 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Belle"

What's It About? This 18th century English romance is about Dido Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a biracial woman raised by her aristocratic great uncle and aunt, Lord and Lady Mansfield. She grows up alongside her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) as equals and best friends, but as they come of age, their differences become all too apparent -- to each other and to their would-be suitors. Meanwhile, Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) is facing a trial as Lord Chief Justice of England that could change the future of slavery. Will Dido find love on her own terms?

Why We're In: It's an elegant period piece perfect for Jane Austen fans, and it's a subtle but effective examination of the intersection of class and race in 18th century England. Mbatha-Raw is fantastic, and director Amma Asante has an excellent eye for detail.

New Images Of David Oyelowo As Martin Luther King Jr. In Civil Rights Biopic Selma

25 August 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After racially-charged unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, made headlines this summer, there’s no denying that civil rights biopic Selma is going to strike a chord with many when it releases this winter. Starring David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King Jr. and Carmen Ejogo as his wife Carmen Scott, the Ava DuVernay-directed pic centers on the influential march from Selma to Montgomery, which paved the way for the 1965 passage of the Voting Rights Act.

Tom Wilkinson, Andre Holland, Omar J. Dorsey, Tessa Thompson, Tim Roth, Wendell Pierce and Colman Domingo all co-star.

Whether the inspiring, resonant story at the heart of Selma will make it an Oscar contender remains to be seen. The latter half of 2014 will be filled with similarly high-profile biopics, many of which are already earning awards buzz. In the coming months, Tim Burton will unveil Big Eyes, about Margaret Keane and her husband Walter; Angelina Jolie »

Images from 'Selma' feature David Oyelowo as Mlk, Tom Wilkinson as Lbj and more

22 August 2014 2:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ava DuVernay's "Selma" is going to come around at a particularly noteworthy time. Yes, it's been 50 years since the Selma-to-Montgomery marches and yes, it's been 49 years since the passing of the voter rights act. But as we look around today, it's perfectly clear: the more things change, the more they stay the same. Starting with voting, it's increasingly a Constitutional right that finds itself under fire. The strictures placed have been aimed — if not explicitly, then damn near close — at minorities all in the name of combating "voter fraud." But this was a dog that didn't hunt from the start, to the point that a Washington Post report revealing 31 credible instances of voter fraud out of a billion — that's 31 out of 1 with nine zeroes after it — comes across as hardly shocking, and borderline humorous. DuVernay herself has stated that if her film does nothing else, it must bring attention to this steady erosion. »

First Look: David Oyelowo As Martin Luther King Jr. In Oscar Contender 'Selma'

22 August 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Given the events on the ground right now in Ferguson, Missouri, there is going to be an undeniable resonance with Ava DuVernay's "Selma" when it arrives later this year. The Martin Luther King Jr. pic, once attached to Lee Daniels, tells a remarkable true story that hasn't lost any of its power since it all happened more than four decades ago. Featuring the ensemble cast of David OyelowoCarmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson, Andre Holland, Omar J. Dorsey, Tessa Thompson, Tim Roth, Wendell Pierce, and Colman Domingo, "Selma" will tell the true story of Martin Luther King Jr. and his involvement in the Civil Rights march from Selma to Montgomery, which captured the attention of the nation and the world, and led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965. Of course, the subject matter alone puts Oscar contention all over this, but let's not forget that this film »

Loic Remy To Join Spurs For £11 Million

22 August 2014 2:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Tom Wilkinson/Pa Wire/Press Association Images

According to the Daily Star, French international striker Loic Remy could be on his way to Tottenham Hotspur from Queens Park Rangers for £11 million.

Remy was set to join Liverpool last month, but a move fell through when he failed his medical due to injury. Liverpool were only set to pay £8.5 million for the player, but that was due to a clause in his contract which cited that any Champions League club could purchase him for that price. Spurs, however, finished sixth last season and are only in the Europa League and would have to pay a premium as a result – £2.5 million more than the Anfield club would have paid.

Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is in charge at Loftus Road and wants to keep the pacy goalscorer at the club, but Spurs hope they can tempt him into a deal and may »

Watch The First Trailer For ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’

7 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

One of the delights of 2012 was the superb old-folk-on-holiday comedy The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. The film did wonders at the international box-office, setting it alight with $136 million dollars in worldwide takings – that’s from a budget of just $10 million. Scratch your head, do the maths and you’ll agree that a sequel would be a bloody good idea. All of the pensioners from the first film are back in the sequel, (bar Tom Wilkinson), as well as Dev Patel and two newcomers in David Straithern and one Richard Gere.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is set to hit cinemas in the spring of next year.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his »

Trailer: "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"

7 August 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Several years ago "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" became a major sleeper hit, nabbing over $135 million worldwide at the box office by catering to a demographic so rarely offered anything of interest at the multiplex.

Now, most of the cast are back for the the follow-up to the story of a bunch of British retirees living in India. Tom Wilkinson is out this time following the events of the first film. Instead Richard Gere has joined the cast. Director John Madden insists that he hates the film being called a sequel:

"I've always insisted on 'companion piece.' I think 'sequel' smacks of, 'Hey, we made a good one, it worked, let's do another one.' It certainly isn't the same movie again. We were very aware of wanting the experience to be completely fresh. If somebody simply walked into this film knowing nothing about the first, they would be just fine. »

2015 Oscar Predictions: Opening the Best Supporting Actor Doors

4 August 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I think it's about time to get started with the rest of the Oscar categories as I've been slowly updating most of them in the background for about a month now. We'll start today with Best Supporting Actor, a category that's looking extremely top heavy at the moment even though I do have 27 contenders listed. Of those 27, however, I feel the five nominees will come out of my current top eight. Of course, something is bound to change, someone is certain to surprise, and perhaps that someone isn't even on my list just yet, but that's how the game is played. To begin I'm going with Mark Ruffalo at #1 for his performance in Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, a film that's boasting what is said to be three solid performances including Steve Carell and Channing Tatum, but as far as I can tell it will be Tatum as the odd man out, »

The 10 Best Moments From The Dark Knight Saga

4 August 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

From the months leading up to the release of The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy became essential, event viewing amid a wave of massive hype that proved founded. Building on the hugely respectable and rewatchable Batman Begins, Tdk became this century’s Empire Strikes Back, considered by some to be one of the greatest films ever made and elevating this reboot into the realms of meteoric, legendary success. Rises was merely the icing on the cake.

Looking back on the saga as a whole, it is not hard to see why. Each film is crammed with memorable moments and exchanges, insanely quotable lines and breath vacuum sequences of audacity and visceral thrill . Whether it be the quiet drama scenes or the car chases, villainous entrances of Batman gambits, almost every scene can be singled out. When the writing isn’t strong, the cinematography and choreography is. Where the shaky-cam becomes obtrusive, »

The Transporter Legacy Set For 2015 Release

2 August 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

EuropaCorp’s Transporter trilogy truly marked the arrival of Jason Statham as a bona fide action star, and now the franchise is getting a reboot – albeit without Statham. However, The Transporter Legacy, as the fourth film in the series has recently been titled, may launch a new actor to action stardom.

Ed Skrein, known for playing Daario Naharis on HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, will be taking on the role of Frank Martin, who is called The Transporter because he’s the best driver and mercenary money can buy. In The Transporter Legacy, Frank meets Anna (Loan Chabanol), the leader of a group of criminals. The pair team up and attempt to take down a group of ruthless Russian human traffickers who have also kidnapped Frank’s father (to be played by “a prominent thesp”).

Radivoje Bukvic, Gabriella Wright, Anatole Taubman and Tatiana Pajkovic co-star in the film, »
