27 October 2010 9:00 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Movieweb.com seems to have a growing library of stunning images from Andrei Konchalovsky’s 3D vision of the famed Nutcracker story.

The newest take on the story will be released in theaters on November 24 and stars Elle Fanning as Mary, Nathan Lane as Uncle Albert, Charlie Rowe as the Nutcracker and John Turturro as The Rat King.

The supporting cast includes Hunyadi Aron, Pepe Balderrama, Jonathan Coyne, Frances de la Tour, Fernanda Dorogi, Kriszta Dorogi, Aaron Michael Drozin, Ferenc Elek and Frances de la Tour as the Rat Queen.

Below you will find the synopsis for the film along with three stills, click here to see the full set.  Some of the images look like the film could be magical but because there are so many Nutcracker films I won’t be sold until I actually see it.  The cast is rather promising though and may be one reason »

Arts, London

Film locations often make for surprisingly good drama. Charles Wood's Veterans took us behind the scenes of The Charge of the Light Brigade. Here, Oliver Cotton's witty and perceptive play uses the shooting of a costume epic in rain-drenched Spain to explore British and American attitudes to life, art and the waiting game of making movies.

Cotton, who clearly knows the territory, creates a series of dramatic reversals. Two actors, the American Brad and English Stuart, are cooped up in a trailer waiting to shoot a scene in a film about Cortés's conquest of Mexico. But it is the seemingly brash Brad who can quote reams of Marlowe, while Stuart is momentarily stumped when asked to recite Shakespeare. And while Stuart attacks the status-consciousness of American actors and the imperialist pretensions of Hollywood, it is Brad who turns out to be made of the right stuff. »
