Woody Allen’s Many On-Screen May-December Romances

12 hours ago | | See recent news »

View Photo Gallery

By Christopher Rosa

If you watched Woody Allen‘s latest film, Magic in the Moonlight over the weekend, you may have noticed something interesting about its romantic leads: Emma Stone and Colin Firth have a 28-year age difference between them. This example of a May-December romance is drastic but — surprise, surprise — not uncommon in Allen’s films.

The director must have a fascination with the older man, younger woman affair because this sort of pairing runs rampant in his filmography. From his critically acclaimed musical-comedy Everyone Says I Love You (1996) to kooky crime fare like Small Time Crooks(2000), several of his pictures feature at least one cradle-robbing encounter, no matter how brief. We’ve assembled 10 particularly salacious pairings with the approximate age each actor or actress was at the time of filming. Some have 20, 30 or even 40-year age gaps. In other words, some of these actors could »

Lucy Destroys Hercules at the Box Office

22 hours ago | | See recent Worst Previews news »

Scarlett Johansson's "Lucy" action film we up against Dwayne Johnson's "Hercules" action film at the box office this weekend, with "Lucy" coming out a clear winner with $44 million in domestic earnings. "Lucy" is directed by Luc Besson (The Professional, The Fifth Element). The film had the biggest opening of any film in his career and earned nearly four times as much as his "Colombiana" action film, starring Zoe Saldana. "Lucy" cost $40 million to make, which means that it's already profitable. And with an international release still on its way, the new movie will be a major hit for everyone involved. It has a 58% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. "Hercules" had to settle for second place with a $29 million opening. That's a disappointing result for a movie that cost $100 million. But with another $29 million coming from international box office, "Hercules" has a good chance of ending up with a total »

Box office report: 'Lucy' slays 'Hercules' with $44 million debut

27 July 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Hercules’s muscles were no match for Lucy’s drug-enhanced brain at the box office this weekend. Audiences turned out in earnest to see the Scarlett Johansson thriller, which earned an expectation-shattering $44 million from 3,173 theaters in its first weekend.

Not only is it director Luc Besson’s biggest opening, Lucy is also a career high for Scarlett Johansson as a lead. Audiences for the original feature were evenly split between genders, 35 percent were under the age of 25, and 29 percent were Hispanic. But even though the EuropaCorp-produced, Universal-distributed project appealed to a wide demographic swath, those who did see the »

Trailer: Magic in the Moonlight

27 July 2014 6:26 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

A Woody Allen comedy about a master magician trying to expose a psychic medium as a fake.

Set in the 1920s on the opulent Riviera in the south of France, Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight is a romantic comedy about a master magician (Colin Firth) trying to expose a psychic medium (Emma Stone) as a fake.

Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Firth), a grouchy and arrogant Englishman with a sky-high opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists’ claims that they can perform real magic. »

Film Review: ‘Magic in the Moonlight’ is Woody Allen By the Book

25 July 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – After last year’s powerful “Blue Jasmine,” writer/director Woody Allen’s trajectory seemed destined toward another film masterpiece, but “Magic in the Moonlight” isn’t it. Colin Firth and Emma Stone are an unlikely pairing in this seen-it-before-Woody film trifle.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Again Allen goes back to the 1920s, an era he has explored before in “Bullets Over Broadway” and to a lesser degree “Midnight in Paris.” The elements of magicians and illusions have also been covered in “Shadows and Fog” and the underrated “Stardust Memories.” Thematically, it feels like Woody Allen has done this film before, even in the relationship between Colin Firth and Emma Stone, which generates zero chemistry. In his quest to make at least one film a year, the 78-year-old auteur has made this one a placeholder, albeit a funnier, more beautifully filmed and at times more interesting placeholder – better than most of the films out there. »

Joaquin Phoenix Favored For "Doctor Strange"

25 July 2014 12:55 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Joaquin Phoenix has reportedly had discussions and is currently in serious consideration if not outright talks for the role of Doctor Stephen Strange in Scott Derrickson's upcoming "Doctor Strange" film at Marvel Studios.

With Benedict Cumberbatch having revealed this week he had meetings for the role but couldn't do the role due to scheduling, talk has suddenly and quite heavily turned to Phoenix. In fact at least two trades claim actual negotiations are actively underway. Representatives for Marvel and Phoenix had no comment.

Tom Hardy, Jared Leto and Justin Theroux have also previously been mentioned as possibilities that ultimately didn't pan out. Whomever takes on the role will play the Marvel Comics hero - a former neurosurgeon who protects Earth from magical and mystical threats.

Phoenix had previously been courted for the role of Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" which ultimately didn't happen. »

For his latest romp around the European countryside, Woody Allen whisks moviegoers away to 1920s southern France for a frothy romantic comedy starring Emma Stone as Sophie, a cheery American with supposedly incredible psychic powers, and Colin Firth as Stanley, the arrogant English stage magician who sets out to debunk her credibility.

No wonder she was cast in Woody Allen's Magic in the Moonlight, which opens this weekend – that's one seriously enchanted face. Here are 22 of her silliest looks. »

Woody Allen's Next Movie Adds Parker Posey and Jamie Blakely Plus Plot Details

25 July 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Woody Allen's new movie, Magic in the Moonlight, hits limited theaters this weekend. Meanwhile, he's off in Providence, Rhode Island with Joaquin Phoenix, Emma Stone and new additions to the cast, Parker Posey and Jamie Blackley, shooting his next movie, which the Chicago Sun Times reports is "a murder mystery, set on a college campus." On top of that it's said to be a "serious-ish drama," which I guess might place it in Match Point territory considering Manhattan Murder Mystery was definitely comedic. In other Allen news, in a recent New York Times profile they revealed Allen has secured financing for not only the film he's currently shooting, but three more beyond that and it sounds like all four will be released by Sony Pictures Classics: Mr. Allen said that his next four films, including the currently untitled one he is making with Ms. Stone and Mr. Phoenix, »

Woody Allen’s Rhode Island Pic Is A “Murder Mystery”

25 July 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although Woody Allen’s latest, 1920s-set romantic caper Magic in the Moonlight, is just opening this week, news about the prolific helmer’s next project is already emerging. We had previously learned that the untitled film would be set in modern-day Rhode Island and be a “contemporary story” that centers on “academics, graduate students, and middle- and working – class folks.” Additionally, it was revealed that the cast would include Joaquin Phoenix, Emma Stone, Parker Posey and Jamie Blackley.

Now that Allen is rolling cameras on the pic in Rhode Island, some more news about the project has broken. According to the film’s executive producer Ron Chez, who spoke with the Chicago Sun-Times about working with Allen, the new movie is  “a murder mystery, set on a college campus.” The Chicago Tribune added that it is a “serious-ish drama.”

So, are we looking at something similar to Match Point? Or »

Woody Allen's Next Film Reportedly A Serious Murder Mystery, Plus New Pics & Clip From 'Magic In The Moonlight'

25 July 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As one movie opens, another begins production, and that's the way it's been with Woody Allen for years. His latest Euro jaunt, "Magic In The Moonlight," heads to theatres this weekend. Meanwhile, the director is in Rhode Island filming his latest, starring new muse Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix among many others. And it looks like the director is headed back into dramatic territory. The film's executive producer Ron Chez told the Chicago Sun Times that the new film is “a murder mystery, set on a college campus,” with the Chicago Tribune adding that it's a "serious-ish drama." And that's about all the details there are at the moment, but maybe it's something in the vein of "Match Point"? We'd be okay with that. Until there's more news, here's some more pics and a clip from "Magic In The Moonlight," which starts rolling out in limited release today. Here's our review. »

25 July 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Jacki Weaver is killing it.  She already had a prolific career in Australia, but when Animal Kingdom came out and earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress, she quickly became a hot commodity in America.  Since, she’s delivered some chilling material in Stoker and also scored another Academy Award nomination for her work in David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, and now she’s adding yet another noteworthy achievement to the list, appearing in a Woody Allen film. In Magic in the Moonlight, Weaver steps in as Grace, a grieving widow who misses her husband so much that she turns to a supposed psychic medium (Emma Stone) to put them back in touch.  While in New York City promoting the film’s release, Weaver sat down with us to talk about the art of nailing a supporting character, working with Allen, whether or not she believes in psychic mediums, »

‘Magic in the Moonlight’ Review: A Jubilant and Delightful Trifle From Woody Allen

25 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Since time immemorial Woody Allen has been entranced by the art of illusions. A proponent of magic tricks as a child, Allen’s affinity for legerdemain has manifested itself throughout his filmography — most notable in his surreal homage to Federico Fellini, Stardust Memories. Now with Magic in the Moonlight the nebbish New Yorker has pulled off yet another impressive act of prestidigitation: making a jubilant and delightful trifle that — much like many of his other 44 films — ponders the rhyme and reason of our existence, however futile or fruitful that may be. To Stanley (Colin Firth) our existence is meaningless. In order to remain comfortable in that unrepentantly bleak worldview, he’s made a career out of exposing pseudo spiritualists — opportunistic swindlers who dupe people into believing they possess divine powers bestowed to them by some omniscient deity. The Englishman’s latest assignment is to debunk the mythical Sophie (Emma Stone), a young American woman who has convinced »

Morgan Freeman Tries Helium Again for Jimmy Fallon

24 July 2014 10:41 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

On his educational show Through the Wormhole With Morgan Freeman, the distinguished actor helped to demonstrate the wonders of science by altering his iconic baritone with the help of a helium balloon. Tonight, he did it again, not in the name of science, but for the much more common reason that celebrities do things: because Jimmy Fallon tells them to. Sure, we expected this slavish adherence to the will of Fallon from the likes of Emma Stone or Halle Berry, but not from you, Morgan. Not from you. »

Magic in the Moonlight

Written and directed by Woody Allen

USA, 2014

Woody Allen’s newest film, Magic in the Moonlight, has yet another appealing ensemble, this one featuring Emma Stone, Colin Firth, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, and a handful of other beloved character actors. A 1928 period piece, the film follows Stanley (Firth), a famous magician, as he tries to expose Sophie (Stone), a mystic of increasing notoriety and a possible swindler. Set in the south of France, the film takes place between two houses: the house of Grace (Jacki Weaver), who wants Sophie to stay and help her connect with her late husband, and the house of Stanley’s aunt Vanessa (Eileen Atkins), which Stanley frequently visits to get away from magic and process his thoughts.

Magic in the Moonlight is a very beautiful film in terms of its aesthetic, with its 1920s attire combined with a secluded scenic area of France, »

Exclusive Video Interview With Jacki Weaver On Magic In The Moonlight

24 July 2014 6:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it wasn’t until her breakout performance in Animal Kingdom that Jacki Weaver really became well known stateside, since that explosive 2010 film, she’s steadily increased her profile in Hollywood. The actresses’ newest project is Woody Allen’s Magic In The Moonlight, which hits theatres tomorrow and stars Colin Firth and Emma Stone.

Set in the roaring 20s, the film sees Firth as a British stage magician who attempts to expose Sophie (Stone), a fraud spiritualist trying to exploit a wealthy family. However, this being a Woody Allen film, “professional and extremely personal complications” quickly arise.

Last week while Weaver was in NYC doing some press for Magic In The Moonlight, we caught up with her for an exclusive interview. Delightful to talk to and eager to speak about her new film, Weaver and I discussed what it’s like working with Woody Allen, the wonderful sets and costumes that we see here, »
