The Salvation With Mads Mikkelsen: A New, Old-Fashioned Western

3 hours ago | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

I’m always ready to watch a Western—even if it comes from Denmark and was shot in South Africa! That’s the pedigree for The Salvation, which stars Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Jonathan Pryce. This handsome, widescreen movie doesn’t try to reinvent the genre; in fact, quite the opposite. It’s a ritualistic morality tale that foreshadows its conclusion in the opening scenes. Some might call it a parade of genre clichés, but the film is less about the destination than the journey. Were it not for good performances and visual flair it would be easier to dismiss. The year is 1871. Mikkelsen and his brother (Mikael Persbrandt), having fought for their...

The Salvation Review

4 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With his tough, chiseled face, Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen has one of world cinema’s best mugs. The actor carries so much of the weight of his many characters in his face, whether it be Hannibal Lecter’s suave cunning on television or anguished despair in his triumphant role in Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt. Naturally, as a stoic settler trying to get retribution on a bloodthirsty baddie in The Salvation, a pastiche to the westerns of John Ford and Sergio Leone, Mikkelsen is magnetic, expressing deep hurt and pain with just a glower or grimace.

As recent Danish immigrant Jon, Mikkelsen’s bloodied and blistered face is a wall to show just how resolute he can be. Jon crossed the Atlantic with his brother (Mikael Persbrandt) in the 1860s with the hopes of making a living in a frontier town. He learned the customs and language, as did the »

Exclusive: Timothy Dalton is in pain in new 'Penny Dreadful' character posters

25 February 2015 2:07 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Many TV viewers are counting the days for the return of "Game of Thrones" or "Mad Men."  Those are fine programs that I'll certainly enjoy every week, but the series I'm dying to return to television?  "Penny Dreadful." John Logan's Victorian Era creation shocked me with a set of kick off episodes directed by J.A. Bayona ("The Impossible," the upcoming "A Monster Calls") which were simply two of the most cinematic hours of television I've ever seen (Fienberg and Sepinwall would no doubt quarrel with me on this, but…).  And while the directors of episodes 3-8 weren't exactly as visionary (James Hawes was the best of the rest) it was some impressive writing and the incredible performances of Eva Green (robbed of Golden Globe and SAG nominations), Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Timothy Dalton and Josh Hartnett that sucked me in ( and, yes, it's easily the best thing Hartnett has ever done. »

However Compelling, Western The Salvation Fails to Break New Ground

24 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Two Bond villains and Eva Green walk into a western, and they emerge with a rugged — if far from revolutionary — old-school horse-opera throwback. Having long since ditched the Dogme 95 precepts that guided his breakout 2000 feature, The King Is Alive, Danish director Kristian Levring employs a bounty of CG-enhanced Sergio Leone–isms for The Salvation, the story of a Danish soldier-turned-settler named Jon (Casino Royale's Mads Mikkelsen) who's reunited with his wife and child in 1871 America, only to have them raped and murdered. Jon exacts bloody revenge for this crime, which in turn makes him the target of a bandit leader (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in league with a mayor (Tomorrow Never Dies' Jonathan Pryce) and in love with »

Penny Dreadful season 2 delayed by a week

12 February 2015 1:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Both the American and UK airdates for Penny Dreadful season 2 have been slightly pushed back…

Fans of Penny Dreadful, prepare to wait ever so slightly longer for the next season to begin. Both sets of airdates – American and UK – have been pushed back by a week.

It's been a couple of weeks since we've had any updates about the show, with the full trailer reveal being the last we heard of its progress. 

No reason was given for the delay that we can find, so perhaps its little more than a logistic matter. If it’s down to quality control, though, surely no-one will mind giving the behind-the-scenes team another week to get all the kinks ironed out.

Either way, Eva Green, Josh Hartnett et al will now return to American screens on Sunday the 3rd of May, and British ones two days later on Tuesday the 5th of May. »

11 February 2015 3:51 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After a long career that has seen him work with some of the biggest directors in Hollywood, it looks as if Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers, Pulp Fiction) will be able to cross another name of his list.

Deadline is reporting that Jackson is in talks to join Tim Burton’s latest project, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. The film, which is being produced by 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment, would see Jackson portray a character called Barron, which could well be the film’s villain, but the specifics of the role have yet to be announced.

Eva Green stars in the film as the title character, alongside Asa Butterfield (Hugo). Jane Goldman (Kick Ass, X-Men: First Class) is adapting the script, based on the novel by Ransom Riggs.

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is set for a March 2016 release. Jackson can currently be seen »

Samuel L Jackson for Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's film

8 February 2015 10:54 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tim Burton's film of Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children is adding Samuel L Jackson in a newly-created role...

Tim Burton's most recent film, Big Eyes, may not have made the splash that many were expecting, but there are still merits to it that make it worth seeking out. As for the director himself, he's moving onto his next film, the big screen adaptation of Ransom Riggs' Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children.

Jane Goldman has been working on the script for this one, and 20th Century Fox has already earmarked a release date of March 4th 2016. And not for the first time in Tim Burton's adaptations of popular books, a new character is being introduced solely for the film version. The role in question is Barron, about whom very little is known. And Deadline is reporting that Samuel L Jackson is in talks to take the part on. »

7 February 2015 2:53 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tim Burton's most recent film Big Eyes, starring Amy Adams and Quentin Tarantino favorite Christoph Waltz, found moderate success with critics and audiences alike. On the heels of the film's run, it looks like Burton may be teaming up with another longtime Tarantino collaborator, Mr. Samuel L. Jackson.

Already onboard are Eva Green, who will be playing the title character, and Hugo's Asa Butterfield, who will fill the shoes of the other lead Jacob Portman.

Samuel L. Jackson Checking Into Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

6 February 2015 6:09 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking a beat from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Samuel L. Jackson has entered talks to star in the Tim Burton-directed fantasy adaptation Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, Deadline reports.

The acclaimed actor will take on the key role of Barron, a mysterious individual who repeatedly comes into contact with protagonist Jacob (Asa Butterfield of Hugo fame). After his grandfather’s strange death, Jacob is compelled to visit the ruins of a mysterious island that once housed a school for children with inexplicable gifts. As he explores the school and learns of its inscrutable headmistress (Eva Green), Jacob realizes that the inhabitants of the seemingly abandoned school are far from gone.

Though no one involved with the production will comment on whether Barron is a good or bad guy, fans of Ransom Riggs’ novel know Barron as one of multiple disguises worn by a horrific creature known as a ‘wight, »

Tim Burton's 'Miss Peregrine' Lines Up Samuel L. Jackson

6 February 2015 5:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Samuel L. Jackson is in talks to join director Tim Burton's adaptation Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children as a character named Barron. Deadline reports that Barron is "a key role," but their sources wouldn't elaborate on whether the character is good or bad. In the original Ransom Rigg novel, there is a character known as Mr. Barron, a bus driver who is one of the many aliases used by Dr. Golan. Golan is a "wight" who stalked the main character Jacob Portman (Asa Butterfield) throughout most of his life in the novel. It isn't known if Samuel L. Jackson is playing this character, or a new role created specifically for the adaptation.

Eva Green stars as Miss Peregrine, who runs a house for children with extraordinary abilities. She meets Jacob on his quest to find out the truth about his grandfather, after he was murdered by a creature known as a "hollow, »

Watch: Mads Mikkelsen Seeks Vengeance In New Trailer For ‘The Salvation’

4 February 2015 10:48 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hannibal star Madds Mikkelsen finds himself embroiled in a New World showdown in the latest trailer released by IFC Films.

Ticking all the boxes for a classic Western tale, The Salvation sees Danish ex-soldier Jon (Mikkelsen) experience the untamed savagery of the New World when his family is brutally murdered by a pair of convicts on the same day that they arrive. After seeking vengeance, Jon finds himself the target of notorious gang leader Delarue (played by Watchmen star Jeffrey Dean Morgan), whose brother was one of the convicts who killed Jon’s family.

Directed by Kristian Levring who also co-wrote the script with fellow Dane Anders Thomas Jensen, The Salvation found a home at Universal Pictures International Entertainment who acquired the feature at Tiff Isa last September. Distributed by IFC Films, the film also stars Eva Green, Eric Cantona, and Mikael Persbrandt (The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies »
