Oscar-nominated Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club, has a new trailer for its anticipated March 27 Us release. Scherfig is a Dogme 95-er and Oscar-nominated for her film An Education (2009). Although most of Scherfig’s eight films are romantic comedies, The Riot Club is darker material. In the film, young Oxford University students join a “Riot Club” and exercise their darkest thoughts about “poor people”; probably murder ensues. The cast is a chorus of rising Britons led by Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer, Downton Abbey‘s Jessica Brown Findlay, as well as Sam Claflin, Max Irons, and Douglas Booth. The film is an adaptation by Laura Wade of her own West End play, Posh.
Behind the camera Scherfig has been a creative and detailed director since her breakthrough film Italian for Beginners (2000), which won the Silver Berlin Bear in 2001. Watch the new trailer for The Riot Club below:

yt id="Es-jm4iDRRQ" width="500" I could have seen The Riot Club at the Toronto Film Festival last year, but I feel like it's a film I've seen too many times before. Am I wrong or are you seeing something different herec Filthy. Rich. Spoiled. Rotten. A band of overprivileged rich boys run wild in this savagely funny satire of money, sex and power. In the elite realm of Oxford University, no society is more exclusive than The Riot Club, the ultra-selective fraternity for Britain's most privileged sons. When he's recruited to join, down-to-earth first-year student Miles (Max Irons) is at first amused--but he's about to get a taste of upper-crust entitlement at its ugliest when a hedonistic night of drinking and drugs spins out of control. Based on the play "Posh" by Laura Wade. Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day) Starring: Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, »

Filthy. Rich. Spoilt. Rotten. IFC Films has recently unveiled the official Us trailer for Lone Scherfig's The Riot Club, which will be getting released in March after initially premiering at Tiff 2014 last year. This debaucherous drama delves into the lives of the elite members of Oxford University's "Riot Club", based on the real-life Bullingdon Club, though I'm sure they want nothing to do with this. The young and beautiful cast of Riot Club includes Max Irons, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth, Jessica Brown Findlay, Natalie Dormer, Holliday Grainger, Olly Alexander, Tom Hollander and Sam Reid. As much as I am fond of director Lone Scherfig, I'm not any more interested in this than I was after the first trailer. Give it a shot. Here's the full trailer for Lone Scherfig's The Riot Club, officially from IFC Films (via The Film Stage): Set amongst the privileged elite of Oxford University, »

Already shooting with Matt Smith, Natalie Dormer and Stanley Tucci at the top of the cast, Patient Zero has just found room for another player. Clive Standen has joined up to help face the rage-virus end of days.The film's story revolves around an unprecedented infection spread across the Earth, unleashed from a super strain of rabies. The disease creates a new super-violent species of human, but when one survivor turns out to be inexplicably immune he begins the hunt for Patient Zero, with the immediate agenda of curing his infected wife and, by extension, the rest of humanity.Smith is the survivor, with Dormer thought to be the wife and Tucci a psychopathic doctor. Standen, a face from Doctor Who, Robin Hood and Camelot who's found a big success in the History Channel's Vikings (and also played a Viking in Hammer Of The Gods) is playing Sergeant Knox: »
Screen Gems’ upcoming pandemic panic film, Patient Zero, has now added Vikings star Clive Standen to its line-up. Directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky from a script by Mike Le, the action thriller will take place in a time when a potent strain of rabies has evolved, turning those who are infected into gibbering, psychotic goons. Sounds a bit like most cinematic strains of rabies, but we’ll remain optimistic on account of the talent that’s attached.
Storywise, Patient Zero will follow the “unprecedented global pandemic of a super-strain of rabies that has resulted in the evolution of a new species driven by violence.” One immune human survivor (played by former Doctor Who, Matt Smith) is not only safe from the disease, but inexplicably possesses the ability to communicate with this new species. Due to this, he finds himself tasked with finding patient zero after his wife – played by Game Of Thrones‘ Natalie Dormer – becomes infected. »

IFC Films has dropped a new trailer today for Lone Scherfig’s latest, The Riot Club. Based on Laura Wade’s West End play, Posh, the film follows the story of a young man at Oxford University as he attempts to gain acceptance into an exclusive, elitist fraternity. Think Neighbors through a stereotypical English lens.
The movie stars Max Irons as Miles Richards, whose every desire hinges upon joining the privileged group. The main bulk of the trailer serves to build up the prestige of the club, so as to possibly provide reason for why anyone would wish to be a member. Around the midway point it seems to veer into spoiler territory, but nevertheless, that first minute ought to entice potential viewers. While it’s yet to open in the U.S., the film did make its North American debut at last year’s Tiff, where it landed a crop of encouraging reviews. »

“Patient Zero” follows an unprecedented global pandemic of a super-strain of rabies that has resulted in the evolution of a new species driven by violence. An inexplicably immune human survivor with the ability to communicate with this new species must spearhead a hunt for Patient Zero in order to find a cure to save his infected wife and humanity.
Standen will play Sargent Knox, a rough-around-the-edges military leader who is trying his hardest to control the uncontrollable situation.
Production is under way.

From navel-grazing necklines (Jennifer Aniston’s vintage John Galliano at the Screen Actors Guild Awards) to thigh-grazing hemlines (Madonna’s Givenchy bodysuit at the Grammys), the stars have been pulling out all the stops. If this year’s awards season offers any clues as to what we can expect on Oscar’s big night, it’s that we should expect the unexpected.
“Everyone is doing something different,” says Brit designer Emilia Wickstead, who created Diane Kruger’s stunning Golden Globes gown. “There are so many stories being told on the red carpet.”

HBO’s most talked about series returns this April, so what better way to get up-to-date and in the Got mood before the new season begins than by watching the Season 4 Blu-ray or DVD.

Elementary’s two plot threads couldn’t be more tonally different in this week’s gloriously bonkers/tragic episode…
This review contains spoilers.
Now that it’s been around long enough to have one, Elementary’s past is starting to pay real dividends.
Take this week’s reappearance of Gina Gershon’s mob boss. Elana Marsh was last seen thirteen episodes ago being put away by Watson in the season three opener. Elementary hadn’t forgotten about her in the meantime, it was simply waiting to harvest the seed planted all those months ago.
It was a structurally neat return for Gershon’s character, who bracketed Watson’s experiment in flying solo as a Pi. Marsh was there for the beginning of Watson’s enterprise, and her death coincided with its conclusion. Andrew’s misadventure with the poisoned latte has convinced Watson that a normal life was beyond her reach, »
Cameos, mistakes and in-jokes. We’ve trawled the Game Of Thrones season 4 DVD commentaries for what went on behind the scenes…
Warning: contains spoilers for Game Of Thrones season 4.
If you’re a busy Game Of Thrones fan who can’t find the spare ten hours required to re-watch season four with the accompanying disc commentaries, then we have your back. Gleaned from said audio tracks provided by the cast, crew and creators George R.R. Martin, Dan Weiss and David Benioff, is the below list of nerdy facts and anecdotes about the making of season four.
Granted, skip the commentaries and you won’t experience first-hand Peter Dinklage’s rendition of Let It Go from Frozen, a stream of filthy innuendo from Lena Headey, or the general sense of awe, adoration and good-natured mockery everyone who works on the show has for everyone else (“If only you could act, Peter »
February is the time of year we realise that we still have another two months until Game of Thrones returns. A glimmer of hope though is the fact that Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season is released on DVD and Blu-ray this week to keep us going. Either allowing people who haven’t watched to fully enjoy the season, or for the rest of us to relive it once more, this is the perfect time to take another trip to Westeros…
Season four of Game of Thrones starts with the shadow of the Red Wedding still hanging over what is left of the Stark family, and the Purple wedding yet to come. In an eventful season we see a downfall of sorts for the Lannisters, »

Game of Thrones might be one of the most popular medieval-esque epics ever, as it counts the likes of Diana Rigg, Charles Dance, Natalie Dormer, and Peter Dinklage among its cast. But does it have Morgan Freeman? No? Well, Last Knights does, so you should watch it instead.
Last Knights features Morgan Freeman as…someone with a very deep and pleasant voice, who may or may not be the antagonist. It also has Clive Owen brandishing a sword and looking very dark and grimy. The plot consists of a tale of a warrior (Owen) who leads a band to avenge their dishonored master. It looks somewhat like a medieval English version of a samurai flick, which makes sense when we realize that the director is Kazuaki Kiriya, who did Goemon, based on a Japanese folk legend that sounds a lot like Robin Hood.

While fans eagerly await Game of Thrones’ fifth season, they can bide their time with an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from the making of season 4.
“The wedding dress is a piece of haute couture,” Dormer says of Margaery Tyrell’s bridal outfit. “It’s stunning and it deserves to be on a catwalk.”
The dress was so popular that the episode’s director, Alex Graves, changed the shot to showcase Clapton’s design. “He never ever changed a shot for a costume designer before but because it looked so good he did,” Clapton says.
The clip comes from an exclusive Target Blu Ray/DVD extra, Silk, Leather & Chain Mail, which provides an in-depth look into all the intricately-designed costumes of season 4.

Digital Spy picks out highlights from the ceremony - and a few that didn't make the cut for the TV broadcast - below...
1. Stephen Fry
— Digital Spy Film (@digitalspyfilm) February 8, 2015
Last night was Stephen Fry's tenth stint as BAFTA host, and he was on fine form - from trading quips with a mischievous Stephen Hawking to introducing one of the biggest stars on the planet as "Tom f**king Cruise", Fry was as witty as ever without ever overstepping the mark.
The highlight? Probably his full-on lip smacker with Cuba Gooding Jr.
Serge Pizzorno's "black tie and tails" attire for the evening flaunted the dress code, »

As part of the official press release, the first synopsis has also landed online:

The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
