Sneak Peek the first trailer revealing new footage from director Thomas Vinterberg's upcoming film adaptation of author Thomas Hardy's "Far from the Madding Crowd", starring Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge and Juno Temple:
"...'Gabriel Oak' is a young shepherd. With the savings of a frugal life, and a loan, he has leased and stocked a sheep farm. He falls in love with a newcomer six years his junior, 'Bathsheba Everdene', a proud beauty who arrives to live with her aunt, 'Mrs Hurst'. She comes to like him well enough, and even saves his life once, but when he makes her an unadorned offer of marriage, she refuses; she values her independence too much and him too little. Gabriel's blunt protestations only serve to drive her to haughtiness. After a few days, she moves to 'Weatherbury', a village some miles off.

Not only is Carey Mulligan starring in the big-screen version of Far From the Madding Crowd, but she's also lending her pipes to it. The first trailer for the adaptation of Thomas Hardy's 1874 romance novel features Mulligan singing a beautiful rendition of "Let No Man Steal Your Thyme." It's wonderful, and the trailer itself is very intriguing. It's the story of Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) and her three suitors. She's in love with Gabriel (Matthias Schoenaerts), but the wealthy William (Michael Sheen) and a sergeant (Tom Sturridge) also want her. Juno Temple also stars, though you won't see her in the trailer. This is just one of the many books to read before they become movies, but if you prefer, you can just see the film when it's released on May 1. Front Page Image Source: Fox Searchlight »
Author Thomas Hardy's beloved novel Far from the Madding Crowd comes to life in the first trailer for this Fox Searchlight adaptation. Carey Mulligan stars as a young woman pulled in three different directions as she struggles to figure out her life. The movie is set for release this summer.
Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba's choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love - as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.
Far From the Madding Crowd looks like it falls firmly in Fox Searchlight's wheelhouse (in the period film way, not the quirky indie way), which seems like a good thing in this case. The Thomas Hardy adaptation stars Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen, Matthias Schoenaerts, (who you can currently see in The Drop) and Tom Sturridge (Effie Gray) and looks like one of those gorgeous high caliber pieces I'll never see on my own, but will be glad I did once someone else drags me to it. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster for Far From the Madding Crowd. It was directed by Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt, Dear Wendy) and adapted for the screen by David Nicholls (One Day, Starter for 10). The film will be released by Fox Searchlight on May 1, 2015. It also stars Juno Temple and Jessica Barden. Trailer courtesy of Fox Searchlight: Here's the »

The first trailer has emerged for Thomas Vinterberg’s follow-up to the critically-acclaimed film The Hunt. This time the Danish director brings us Far from the Madding Crowd, Thomas Hardy’s classically British tale of unrequited love and tragedy.
Carey Mulligan stars as the enticing Bathsheba Everdene, a woman who finds herself being courted by three very distinct men: a shepherd (Matthias Schoenaerts), a farmer (Michael Sheen), and a solider (Tom Sturridge). Gorgeous pastoral landscapes, stunning mansions, social hierarchy, and above all things, love, are on full display in this trailer which is perfectly underscored by Mulligan’s enchanting singing voice. The song that carries the trailer is “Let No Man Steal Your Thyme” and is performed by Mulligan and Sheen.
The film, which also stars Juno Temple, was whispered, rumoured, and hoped for on the 2014 festival circuit, but having skipped Cannes, Venice, and Tiff, it looks like we’ll »

Thomas Vinterberg’s "The Hunt" earned a Best Foreign Language Academy Award nomination at this year’s ceremony. Starring Mads Mikkelsen, the psychologically aggressive film focuses in on a town imploding after pedophilia accusations spread like wildfire. Like he did with his Dogme 95 film "The Celebration," Vinterberg’s film burrows straight to the gut, a moral play with physicality. Based on the trailer for his follow-up, an adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s "Far From The Madding Crowd," the director will adapt that audacious approach for sweeping romance. "Far From The Madding Crowd" stars Carey Mulligan as Bathsheba Everdene, a woman it takes her independence seriously. As she navigates the ups and downs of life, the worst and best of romantic interests, her life continuously brings her back to Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts of "Rust and Bone"), a shepherd who dreams of being more than friends. Michael Sheen and Tom Sturridge play two other potential suitors, »

The drama is centred around Bathsheba, who attracts three different men - sheep farmer Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), charismatic Sergeant Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge) and wealthy bachelor William Boldwood (Michael Sheen).
The latest film's script is written by One Day's David Nicholls.
We may have heard Jennifer Lawrence sing this week for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” but another actress is showing off her singing chops in the first trailer for Thomas Vinterberg’s “Far From the Madding Crowd.”
Carey Mulligan provides the soundtrack for the trailer, singing traditional folk song “Let No Man Steal Your Thyme,” backed up by co-star Michael Sheen near the end. Mulligan stars as Bathsheba Everdene in Vinterberg’s adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s book.
The film marks Danish filmmaker Vinterberg’s follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2012 movie “The Hunt.” “Far From the Madding Crowd” also stars Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge and Juno Temple and follows three men courting Mulligan’s character.
“Far From the Madding Crowd” is set to debut May 1, 2015.

Thomas Vinterberg adapts Thomas Hardy with Far from the Madding Crowd, and a teaser trailer for the May 2015 release has now been released. Carey Mulligan stars as independent-minded Bathsheba Everdene, who finds herself attracting three very different male suitors: sheep farmer Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), Sergent Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), and prosperous, older bachelor William Boldwood (Michael Sheen). Juno Temple also co-stars in this exploration of relationships and resilience.
There have been many film and TV adaptations of Hardy’s novel, with the 1967 version by director John Schlesinger – which starred Julie Christie, Terence Stamp, Peter Finch and Alan Bates – being the most beloved, so Vinterberg has his work cut out for him. This is his first English language feature since 2004′s Dear Wendy, though Fox Searchlight’s trailer makes an effort to promote Far from the Madding Crowd as from the filmmaker behind Oscar nominee The Hunt. He’s far from the Dogme crowd now. »

A movie we first crossed our fingers for at Cannes, and then hoped would pop up on the fall festival circuit, Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of Thomas Hardy's classic "Far From The Madding Crowd" wasn't seen in Venice, Telluride, Toronto, or anywhere else in 2014. It's a bit curious considering the filmmaker has rounded up a great cast for this period drama, his followup to the acclaimed "The Hunt." Whatever the reason it side-stepped those glamorous events, the first trailer is here, and the film certainly looks beautiful. Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen, Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge, and Juno Temple star in this tale centering on the fetching Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) who is courted by three men: Gabriel Oak (Schoenaerts), a shepherd; Sergeant Troy (Sturridge), a handsome soldier; and William Boldwood (Sheen), a farm owner. Tragedy looms in the distance and their lives and desires clash and collide. "Far From The Madding Crowd »

Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen River, Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality.

Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet.

Maleficent Blu-Ray Review
You may think you know the story of Sleeping Beauty, but Maleficent dares to opt for changing your mind about that. The story starts long before you imagined, with a young fairy who meets a young human thief. By way of impressive visuals, and surprisingly “normal” events, young Maleficent and Stefan become the best of friends. When Maleficent comes of age, she becomes the protector of her magical forest, which means when the King comes calling, and doesn’t fare well, she is the target of his rage. A now very ambitious Stefan sees an opportunity.
This naturally leads to a great betrayal, and Stefan becoming King. This gives us the opening to sell us the story that Maleficent isn’t just the evil witch who comes to curse Aurora, but is instead the largely justified, though perhaps overzealous, wronged fairy looking to exact revenge.

A staple of the Sundance Film Festival since Courtney Hunt’s Frozen River in ’08, her Park City premiered filmography as a cinematographer was followed by Little Birds, Shut Up And Play The Hits, For Ellen, Kill Your Darlings, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, and last year’s The Skeleton Twins and War Story. Late this summer, Reed Morano took an all-encompassing approach to visual storytelling, taking on double duties as director first, cinematographer second. Olivia Wilde toplines Meadowland and the hard-hitting drama includes the likes of Luke Wilson, John Leguizamo, Elisabeth Moss, Giovanni Ribisi, Juno Temple, Kevin Corrigan, Scott Mescudi and Ty Simpkins. The ideal kind of auteur theory should be more inclusive. Add cinematographers. Case in point.
Gist: Written by Chris Rossi, this follows a couple, David and Sarah, dealing with their son’s disappearance. David finds solace in a traditional form of healing, only to lose his moral compass. »

Take a Cannes Lions-winning commercials director/first time filmmaker in Tim Godsall, throw in a 2008 Broadway play, and finally, add a mix of sturdy mix of actors in Juno Temple, Kathryn Hahn, Rhys Ifans, Keir Gilchrist accompanied by newcomer Jack Kilmer who broke out convincingly with Palo Alto (see pic above), and this under-the-radar title has the ingredients for a bonafide selection. A project flying so low to the ground that if it weren’t for the brief trade mention back in April, it might have not made it on this list, production began in Toronto of April last year.
Gist: Based on Carly Mensch’s play Len, Asleep In Vinyl, co-written by Katharine Knight and Godsall, this centres on the unexpected journey of self-discovery by a miserable hit record producer (Rhys Ifans) whose self-imposed exile is shattered by his estranged son (Kilmer) and a successful client.

“Maleficent” is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well. Maleficent is being directed by Robert Stromberg, based on a screenplay by Paul Dini and Linda Woolverton. The cast includes: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, »

What if Catwoman (Hathaway) left Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) in Paris and returned to Gotham? Perhaps Juno Temple's character got into some trouble without Selena to watch over her? The scenario isn't totally implausible and Hathaway is definitely game to put on some black, skin-tight leather again to portray the feline anti-hero. “I would be totally up for doing it. If Chris [Nolan] was involved. For me, the thing that made doing that part particularly fun was that she existed in his Gotham. Without him I don’t think it would be the same thing. But I also wonder about that part. If because she’s a thief, it’s not better to have her be a small part in a larger film. So she can go through and steal aspects of the film. But when the focus is squarely on her, I don’t know if it works as well. »
