What If You Could See Two New Clips From Daniel Radcliffe’s New Movie?

24 July 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The romantic comedy genre has a bad reputation. For every Barefoot In The Park, there are dozens of Runaway Brides. For every When Harry Met Sally, there are swarms of Giglis. Nobody sets out to make a bad movie, of course, but it seems that there is, generally, a disproportionate number of them in this particular film category. The question is, will What If be a rare quality entry, or will it end up in the bargain bin with The Holiday? Today, we are one step closer to finding out, with the release of two new clips.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe (Kill Your Darlings) and Zoe Kazan (It’s Complicated), the story muses on the well-worn possibility that the love of your life could actually be your best friend. Based on a play by T.J Dawe and Michael Rinaldi, and adapted by Elan Mastai, the story centres on a young »

Watch: Daniel Radcliffe Learns The Secret Of Relationships In 2 Clips From 'What If'

23 July 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It was just last week when we explored the state of the rom-com, 25 years after the release of the still excellent, funny and very real "When Harry Met Sally." Indeed, the landscape these days is pretty dire for the genre, but like we said, there are gems to be found in smaller, indie films. And one that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to strong buzz last year is "What If," and as it heads to theaters next month, a couple of new clips are here to give you a peek at this charmer. Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan star in this one about the tricky dilemma one young man faces, when he starts falling for his best friend... who unfortunately happens to already be in a relationship. Seems like familiar stuff, but advance word on this one is good and the supporting cast is pretty good too with »

From Batman to The Shadow Line: Hugo Blick's amazing career

3 July 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Hugo Blick returns to television tonight with BBC Two's The Honourable Woman - a new eight-part thriller starring Maggie Gyllenhaal as Nessa Stein, the daughter of an arms dealer caught up in an international political crisis.

In his 25-plus years in the business, Blick has led a long, varied and deeply interesting career - penning some of British television's best and most ground-breaking comedies and dramas and even branching out into acting.

Digital Spy presents Blick's career highlights - from a surprising debut to his noirish masterpiece.

Batman (1989)

Even ardent fans of Blick's work might be surprised to learn that he made his screen debut not as a writer but an actor, portraying the younger version of Jack Nicholson's Napier - alias the Joker - in Tim Burton's gothic big-screen take on the Dark Knight.

Blick appears only briefly in the film, but with that broad, sinister grin and icy blue eyes, »

New UK Trailer For ‘What If’ Starring Daniel Radcliffe And Zoe Kazan

1 July 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Originally titled The F Word, it’s been intelligently re-branded as What If, which means a whole lot less chat about the ‘F’ and an instant bigger audience without parents worrying.

But before we lose track in ‘what’s in a name?’, let’s get back to why we’re here and onto the interesting, entertaining looking What If starring Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver, Rafe Spall and Oona Chaplin.

It’s selling itself around the question of ‘friendship’ between men and women and whether it can ever really exist, i.e. Can we all be friends without sex getting in the way? What If focuses on Wallace (Radcliffe), who’s been repeatedly burned by bad relationships. While everyone around him, including his roommate Allan (Driver), seems to be finding the perfect partner, Wallace decides to put his love life on hold. It’s then that he meets Chantry »

New What If Clip Shows Daniel Radcliffe And Zoe Kazan Becoming Friends

17 June 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

What If gives a slightly different spin on romantic comedies, and more importantly, it gives Zoe Kazan a chance to get the exposure she deserves.

More than just your typical rom-com, What If spins the “friendship” question into new nooks and crannies of the relationship world, and does so from the perspective of some excessively quirky characters. Daniel Radcliffe, who to me has had varying levels of success attempting a wide array of characters, looks to have this role nailed down… possibly because there is a bit of Harry Potter about Wallace.

The new clip below expands on the “friendship bargain” you get in the trailer above, and is a pretty clever moment for the film.

Check it out, and make sure you have August 8th on your calendar.

Watch: Zoe Kazan and Daniel Radcliffe Strike Up an Awkward Friendship in New Clip From 'What If'

16 June 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Friendship is something akin to a business deal in this new clip from the upcoming indie romantic comedy "What If." A bumbling Zoe Kazan attempts to strike up a friendship with Daniel Radcliffe without trying to seem as if she is hitting on him. "I totally get that guys don't want to hang out with the girl with the boyfriend," she says. "But it just sucks, y'know. It just makes you feel like the only thing that is interesting about you is how you look with your clothes off." Kazan's awkwardness seems to amuse Radcliffe rather than make him uncomfortable.

History Orders Sons Of Liberty Miniseries

5 June 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

History is making another addition to its original programming with an order for a new miniseries, Sons of Liberty. Hot off the continued success of Vikings, and the critical acclaim of other miniseries efforts (like The Bible and Hatfields & McCoys), the network now aims at what looks like a pretty interesting take on the lives of the biggest names of the American Revolution.

It seems as though we’re going for a “no really, they were just actual people,” approach to things, apparently trying to show that these were real men, with real lives and real problems, who threw themselves into something, probably far beyond their expectations. That could be a story worth telling, and there are some great cast members involved. Some audiences may have to be convinced that Ryan Eggold can get them to like him after he so recently got them to hate him on The Blacklist, »

‘What If’ We Told You This Trailer Featured Every Rom-Com Cliche?

30 May 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s a story we’ve heard plenty of times before. An adorable guy (Daniel Radcliffe) has been skanking around with his well-intentioned bro friends for far too long without getting action, so one of them (Adam Driver) takes the initiative to get him back in the game. He meets an equally adorable gal, the woman of his dreams, even (Zoe Kazan), but it’s just not meant to be – sister already has a boyfriend (Rafe Spall) back at home. So what’s a ruffled-hair kid to do when he’s met the love of his life and she’s under the impression that they’re best friends? He pines, that’s what he does. The trailer for What If – the romantic comedy that will surely break all rom-coms if the hit list of tropes packed into just a few minutes are any indication – paints a neat and tidy picture of Wallace and Chantry’s inevitable romance »
