Omar Sharif in 'Doctor Zhivago.' Egyptian star Omar Sharif, 'The Karate Kid' producer Jerry Weintraub: Brief career recaps A little late in the game – and following the longish Theodore Bikel article posted yesterday – below are brief career recaps of a couple of film veterans who died in July 2015: actor Omar Sharif and producer Jerry Weintraub. A follow-up post will offer an overview of the career of peplum (sword-and-sandal movie) actor Jacques Sernas, whose passing earlier this month has been all but ignored by the myopic English-language media. Omar Sharif: Film career beginnings in North Africa The death of Egyptian film actor Omar Sharif at age 83 following a heart attack on July 10 would have been ignored by the English-language media (especially in the U.S.) as well had Sharif remained a star within the Arabic-speaking world. After all, an "international" star is only worth remembering »

Time to celebrate, Terrence Malick fans: the prolific director's long-awaited film Knight of Cups finally has a release date. According the The Hollywood Reporter, the film will hit theaters March 4, 2016 by way of upstart film distributor Broad Green Pictures. The first time we reported on Knight of Cups was back in November of 2011, and ever since then fans of the reclusive director have been clamoring to see the film. The first trailer dropped back in December, and after receiving a rating shortly thereafter, a detailed synopsis was released ahead of the film's premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February. Malick has his detractors, and I think I count as one of them. While I like The Thin Red Line it took me more than a handful of attempts to finally get through Days of Heaven, and I think the only reasons I enjoyed The Tree of Life are the »

The sequel to Top of the Lake will be set and shot in Sydney.
BBC2 commissioned a sequel after the first series, which followed Griffin as she investigated the disappearance of a pregnant 12-year-old girl in New Zealand, was nominated for eight Emmys and won the gong for best cinematography for a TV movie or miniseries.
See-Saw Films is producing and pre-production is due to start in December. Campion will direct along with another director who is yet to be confirmed.

Rooney Mara surprised many by taking home the Best Actress prize at Cannes, as many thought her co-star Cate Blanchett would take it -- or the two would share. Whether we like it or not, the moment marked the beginning of Mara's campaign for a second Oscar nomination (and potential win) for Todd Haynes' "Carol." It's just a matter of whether The Weinstein Company will campaign them both in lead, or place Mara in supporting. The latter seems more like Harvey, and if that's the case we can pretty much guarantee that one of the category's five slots will go to Mara. Who joins her? That depends on how big, small or good dozens of hopefuls' roles are in films we -- in some cases -- won't see until November. The mighty likes of Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Laura Linney, Jennifer Jason Leigh, »

The story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny — to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan. The new movie stars Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara, Amanda Seyfried, and Levi Miller as Peter Pan. “Pan” opens in theaters on October 9, 2015.

Up until today my interest in Pan begins and ends at Rooney Mara's involvement, in part because I'm not a huge fan of fantasy tales and also because I feel like I already know the story it intends to tell, and as a Rooney Mara fan it feels like she is all I have to cling to. But if we are to believe the narration in this newest trailer, perhaps there is reason for me to step back and reframe my expectations. "I'm going to tell you a story about a boy who would never grow up, about the pirate who wished to catch him, about the island where fairies roamed," the narrator states at the beginning of the trailer below. "But this isn't the story you've heard before." Part of me wonders if that is true, or if it's just another way for the studio to sell the film, »

Hollywood’s latest revisionist fairytale boasts child-stealing pirates and a Hook who’s morphed into Indiana Jones. But Rooney Mara’s turn as a psychedelic-tressed Tiger Lily won’t do much to offset accusations of ‘whitewashing’
It’s an unwritten rule of fantasy film-making that if you can’t make a great movie, at least make one that’s utterly outlandish. This is why, for all their failings, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful, with their giant-headed queens, excitable talking animals and gorgeous warring witches, will always be remembered more fondly than furrow-browed Angelina Jolie-vehicle Maleficent, or any of the distinctly po-faced Narnia films.

This morning in central London, we were treated to around 15 minutes of new footage from director Joe Wright’s upcoming fantasy/adventure, Pan. The film, which stars Hugh Jackman as the movie’s lead villain Blackbeard, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lilly, Garrett Hedlund as Hook and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter, arrives in cinemas in October.
When Joe Wright‘s Pan was announced, I must admit to being one of those who rolled his eyes at the thought of a new re-imagining of J.M. Barrie’s classic tale. In the very near past we’ve had the likes of Peter Pan (2003), Finding Neverland, and even last year’s TV special Peter Pan Live on our screens, and it seems too soon to take a trip back. Does the world need another movie? It is very clear from the footage that Warner Bros. showed off this morning that director Joe Wright »

After debuting at Comic-Con last weekend, Warner Bros. has finally released the third and final trailer for Pan. In theaters this October, the classic J.M. Barrie fairytale gets an origin story. We get to see how Peter and Hook became such bitter enemies, after starting off as great friends. And we get to see Hugh Jackman deliver a delicious performance as the iconic pirate Blackbeard. This trailer also offers up plenty of thrills, including a fierce mermaid played by Suicide Squad's Cara Delevingne and one giant Crocodile that belongs in a horror movie. It promises to wow adult audiences and give small children nightmares for decades to come.
There is plenty of new footage in this latest sneak peek at director Joe Wright's revisionist take on the iconic story of the boy who never grew up, never got old, partied all night, and slept all day. The film »
While Comic-Con audiences were last weekend treated to a visually lush trailer for Pan and a clip showcasing Hugh Jackman’s hammy performance as Blackbeard in the Joe Wright-directed blockbuster, neither preview has surfaced online yet. Today, though, Warner Bros. has unveiled an extended look at the October pic, heavy on both fantasy and exposition.
This time around, Levi Miller portrays the titular Boy Who Never Grew Up, whose miserable life in a London orphanage is upended when he (and others) are captured and enslaved by the villainous pirate Blackbeard (Jackman), who spirits them away to Neverland in the belly of a flying pirate ship. There, Peter begins to realize that he may hold the key to breaking Blackbeard’s hold over the fantastical island.
The trailer promises visual splendor and imaginative action in equal measure, and given the huge budget Wright had to play with, there’s reason »

Hollywood directors are notorious flirts when it comes to picking projects, and spy thriller Red Sparrow has been the belle of the ball for some time. Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky was at one point eyeing the pic as his follow-up to Biblical epic Noah, and David Fincher considered coming aboard in hopes of reuniting with his Girl with the Dragon Tattoo lead Rooney Mara (who walked when Fincher did). Now, Francis Lawrence, who’ll finally be done directing Lionsgate’s Hunger Games films this fall, is in the mix to take the reins.
Lawrence is accustomed to swimming in blockbuster waters, albeit without the same consistent praise Aronofsky and Fincher have received throughout their careers. Outside of The Hunger Games quadrilogy (of which he directed three), Lawrence has helmed I Am Legend, Constantine and Water for Elephants, as well as episodes of short-lived series Kings and Touch. Still, working »

This new trailer, possibly the very one they showed at Comic-Con, is heavy on the adventure and Rooney Mara's white-washed role as Tiger Lily

Warner Bros just unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming big-budget "Peter Pan" prequel, called "Pan," starring Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard and Garrett Hedlund as Captain Hook. Check it out below. "Pan" tells the untold story of how a young orphan boy from London is spirited away to the magical Neverland where he finds grand adventures that shape him into the hero known to generations as Peter Pan. The new movie is directed by Joe Wright (Atonement) and co-stars Amanda Seyfried as Mary, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter Pan. It's set to hit theaters on October 9th. Trailer: »
Jackman shaved his head last year in order to play the iconic role.
Pan was previously scheduled to open over the summer, but will now be released on October 16 in the UK and October 9 in the Us.
Its release date was originally pushed back to avoid a clash with Marvel's Ant-Man. »
"Because sometimes friends begin as enemies, and enemies begin as friends." Warner Bros has debuted one more trailer, the third full trailer, for Joe Wright's Pan movie. This was also featured during Warner Bros' Comic-Con panel last weekend, and is being released online in full now. Young actor Levi Miller plays the new Peter Pan on his first trip to Never Never Land, where he encounters Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman), Hook (Garrett Hedlund) and Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara). As much as this may seem like a fantastic CG mess, don't forget that it's made to connect with people of all ages. It's an adventure where we get to see Never Never Land like never before. I honestly don't know if it'll be any good, but does look like fun. Enjoy! Here's the third official trailer for Joe Wright's Pan, direct from Warner Bros: For comparison, you can still watch »

"What an eccentric performance," observed King Arthur of Tim The Enchanter in Monty Python And The Holy Grail. But Tim, it turns out, is positively subdued compared to the riot of colour and theatrical hamming on display in Joe Wright's incoming Pan. Second star to the right and straight on til morning is the address for Neverland, but you don't need to go that far to see the new trailer. Look, it's right here!As you'll have seen from that, Wright has gone all out for fantasy spectacle, and the trailer editors are clearly much enamoured of his flying ships. Levi Miller is Peter Pan before we meet him in Jm Barrie's classic tale (for this be a prequel, my lads), and Huge Ackman is the dread pirate Blackbeard: an important player in the film's other origin story for Garrett Hedlund's Captain Hook.Peter is a wartime orphan »
