A Unique Superstar: 20th Century Icon Garbo on TCM

26 August 2015 5:00 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Greta Garbo movie 'The Kiss.' Greta Garbo movies on TCM Greta Garbo, a rarity among silent era movie stars, is Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” performer today, Aug. 26, '15. Now, why would Garbo be considered a silent era rarity? Well, certainly not because she easily made the transition to sound, remaining a major star for another decade. Think Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, William Powell, Fay Wray, Marie Dressler, Wallace Beery, John Barrymore, Warner Baxter, Janet Gaynor, Constance Bennett, etc. And so much for all the stories about actors with foreign accents being unable to maintain their Hollywood stardom following the advent of sound motion pictures. A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer star, Garbo was no major exception to the supposed rule. Mexican Ramon Novarro, another MGM star, also made an easy transition to sound, and so did fellow Mexicans Lupe Velez and Dolores del Rio, in addition to the very British »

Carla Gugino on Playing Strong Women in ‘San Andreas,’ ‘Wayward Pines’ and ‘The Brink’

20 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In three starkly different projects this summer, Carla Gugino has played a mom who helps rescue her daughter from the Big One in “San Andreas,” a Secret Service agent in Fox limited series “Wayward Pines,” and a lawyer who has an open marriage with the secretary of state on HBO political satire “The Brink.” The 44-year-old actress found one common thread among the characters — they’re all innately strong women.

How was it juggling these three projects?

I am definitely a workhorse. I feel fortunate to work in a business that is predominantly made up of people who love what we do, and don’t think twice about working a 14-hour day.

What do you like best about “The Brink”?

It’s a bright, talented, funny group of people with a clear vision of what they want the show to be. And I loved the wacky complicated dynamic between Tim (Robbins)’ character and mine. »

New Images: Crimson Peak and Goosebumps

18 August 2015 11:29 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

You might want to celebrate this Halloween season by planning a double bill at the movie theater on October 16th—the day Crimson Peak and Goosebumps hit theaters. Gearing up for both movies are the folks at Entertainment Weekly, who have released a new photo from each film.

Crimson Peak: "When her heart is stolen by a seductive stranger, a young woman is swept away to a house atop a mountain of blood-red clay: a place filled with secrets that will haunt her forever. Between desire and darkness, between mystery and madness, lies the truth behind Crimson Peak.

From the imagination of director Guillermo del Toro comes a supernatural mystery starring Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam."

Directed by del Toro from a screenplay he scribed with Matthew Robbins, Crimson Peak stars Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam, and Jim Beaver. A Legendary film from Universal Pictures, »

Gemma Bovery Review

18 August 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

  Gustave Flaubert’s perennial novel Madame Bovary is the subject of a faithful adaptation this year, with Mia Wasikowska playing the eponymous protagonist. But it’s not the only retelling of this definitive tale, as Anne Fontaine’s whimsical comedy Gemma Bovery tells a somewhat more subtle, and certainly more creative version – taken directly from Posy

Alice Through The Looking Glass: first posters

16 August 2015 10:20 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska return for the new Alice In Wonderland film...

In truth, in spite of the fact that it grossed over $1bn at the box office worldwide, we don't know very many people who liked Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland movie that much. It starred Mia Wasikowska in the title role, although the Mad Hatter had a beefed up part too, courtesy of the casting of Johnny Depp.

Tim Burton isn't back for the follow-up, Alice Through The Looking Glass, however. Instead, The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted helmer James Bobin has stepped into his shoes. A first trailer for Alice Through The Looking Glass was shown over the weekend at Disney's D23 event too, although it's not been released online yet. What we do have, though, are the first two teaser posters from the movie.

Which are here...

First Look At Alice Through The Looking Glass

15 August 2015 3:43 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Disney’s 2010 live-action take on Alice In Wonderland might not have generated the same level of joy as other properties, but it certainly brought in the coins, passing a billion dollars at the box office. Disney showed off some of the sequel (Alice Through The Looking Glass) at D23 this weekend, including a first look at Sacha Baron Cohen as a new character, a creature of shifting morality called Time. In a somewhat muted presentation that only included Alice herself, Mia Wasikowska, the sequel’s secrets were peeled back slightly with the revelation that Linda Woolverton’s script finds the leaping through different time periods and meeting the various “Underland” characters at younger stages in their lives, including the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) and the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp). Baron Cohen’s Time is depicted as an Ott sort (from Sacha? Surely not!) with a heavy accent and a »

First posters of Alice Through The Looking Glass

15 August 2015 1:59 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Alice In Wonderland made over a billion dollars for Disney, despite being heartless, awful, synthetic, and based around a needless prophecy storyline. So a sequel, Alice Through The Looking Glass, was inevitable, and although Tim Burton won’t be returning, the role of director has fallen to British director James Bobin, known for Muppets Most Wanted and his work with Ali G.

Almost the entire original cast, both live-action and animated voice artists, return, so we’ll certainly be rewarded with some form of consistency. However, we can only hope that the story has a little more substance to chew on. As the original was more of a sequel to the original tale, there’s no way of telling what the story will be. But with the return of Helena Bonham Carter‘s Red Queen, perhaps revenge is on the cards.

Alice Through The Looking Glass is released on May 27th 2016. It stars Johnny Depp, »
