TV review: Ruth Rendell's Thirteen Steps Down; The Riots; Escape from Colditz

13 August 2012 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Luke Treadaway is a brilliant, creepy weirdo in a yarn packed with foreboding and dread

Good, thank God that's over. All that warmth, goodwill, and tears, even at the bloody taekwondo. It was getting tiring. Now we can get back to more familiar territory. Like murder. Which you don't have to wait too long for in Ruth Rendell's Thirteen Steps Down (ITV, remember?).

I wonder how Rendell came up with the profession for Mix, her protagonist. Hmm, shall I make him an accountant, or a carpenter ... no, got it, he will be a gym-equipment repair man, specialising in cross-trainers. Anyway, it's an excellent job for him, with a touch of perviness and good access to gyms – ideal for a stalker. And Luke Treadaway is brilliant in the part, a thoroughly convincing weirdo psychotic obsessive.

The murder – the first, I fear there may be more to come in part two – is horrid (yeah, »

Thirteen Steps Down

9 August 2012 9:24 AM, PDT | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

Luke Treadaway stars in Thirteen Steps Down, a gripping psychological thriller based on the novel by Ruth Rendell, coming to ITV on Monday 13th August.

The two-part drama centres on a young Notting Hill mechanic Mix Cellini (Treadaway) who is fixated by both a local model Nerissa Nash (Elarica Gallagher) and a long-dead serial killer, John Reginald Christie, the real-life petty criminal who murdered eight women in Notting Hill between 1943 and 1953.

27 year old Luke (represented in the UK by Hamilton Hodell) already has an impressive CV of film and TV roles. He was nominated for a British Independent Film Award as most promising newcomer for his role as Barry Howe in the 2005 film Brothers of the Head. He made his first television appearance the following year as Adam Solomons in eight episodes of The Innocence Project. Other roles have included Theo in the TV movie Clapham Junction, Eddie in ten »

Game of Thrones star Charles Dance is 'daddy of all gangsters' in St George's Day

30 July 2012 2:10 PM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Redditch-born stage and screen star Charles Dance, known to sci-fi fans for his role as Ripley's confidante Dr Clemens in Alien 3 and now on TV as Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones, will next be seen on the big screen in the crime thriller St George's Day.

Metrodome Distribution today announced it is to release the film in the UK on September 7, 2012.

The film's Facebook page says of Dance's involvement: "A sterling cameo role in the film is held by him. We hardly ever think of C.D. as a gangster... this role though is of Trenchard, the daddy of them all.

"Knowing, strongly connected, and has stayed under the wire his entire illicit career. Dance exhibits his usual great command of a role, you are really going to enjoy this."

DVD Release: Tonight You’re Mine

11 July 2012 10:53 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

DVD Release Date: Aug. 14, 2012

Price: DVD $22.99

Studio: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

Nymphadora Tonks, or should we say Natalia Teena (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of course), goes musical in the rock ‘n’ roll movie Tonight You’re Mine.

Set against the backdrop of Scotland’s leading music festival, the romantic comedy follows two feuding stars, British rocker Morello (Teena) and American pop star Adam (Luke Treadaway, The Whistleblower), who are both supposed to perform at the music festival. As their banter escalates, a security guard handcuffs them together. As all their attempts to break free are thwarted, they come to realize they might not want to escape each other afterall.

The R-rated film was screened in a handful of theaters, but is basically a DVD premiere in the U.S.

Critics gave Tonight You’re Mine mixed reviews, citing problems in the script. The story does sound highly predictable. »

Una Stubbs: 'I just think, Oh, I hope I can be good enough' |

30 June 2012 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Since Una Stubbs's film debut half a century ago, she's never been out of work. With a string of memorable TV series to her name, from Till Death Do Us Part to Sherlock, how does she feel now about her return to the National theatre stage at 75?

Una Stubbs can't quite believe she's being interviewed. "So who else are you speaking to from this production?" she asks when we meet backstage at the National Theatre. No one, I tell her. Just you. Behind her round-framed spectacles, Stubbs's eyes widen anxiously. "Oh," she says, brow crinkling. "Really?"

You might expect Una Stubbs to be more convinced by her own reputation. At 75, she has starred in some of the most memorable television programmes of the past four decades (Till Death Us Do Part, Give Us a Clue, Worzel Gummidge, Sherlock) and been directed on stage by such theatrical luminaries as Sir Peter Hall and Michael Grandage. »

Joe Cornish Signs On For 'Snow Crash'

15 June 2012 11:09 AM, PDT | Celebsology | See recent Celebsology news »

Joe Cornish is a totally cool dude. Last year, when Ology went to New York Comic Con, Cornish, John Boyega and Luke Treadaway spoke to fans of the audience favorite Attack the Block. Despite the film's paltry take in across the nation, those who saw it can agree that it was one of the best movie's of last summer. It's with great pleasure that I announce that Cornish is writing and directing once again, this time he's adapting the sci-fi book Snow Crash.

| Related: Attack the Block comes to Comic Con |

Let's ignore the fact that the title Snow Crash could use some work. Written by Neal Stephenson, the story itself sounds pretty incredible. I mean, the main character's name is Hiro Protagonist. I can't tell if it's the most unoriginal or the most creative thing I've ever heard. Anyway it's very dystopian and criminal and will probably be super epic. »

Are You Ready To ‘Get Lucky’?

8 June 2012 1:39 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The title is a little deceiving but you’re about to get lucky all the same as we have the brand new trailer for the upcoming indie Brit-flick Get Lucky. Enjoy!

Directed by Sacha Bennett (Bonded By Blood, Devilwood) and brought to us via Gateway Films (Anuvahood, Sket), the film follows two brothers as they get sucked into the criminal underworld and become involved with a gang who perform heists. Luke Treadaway (Attack The Block), Craig Fairbrass (The Bank Job), James Cosmo (Game Of Thrones), Rebecca Ferdinando (Bonded By Blood), Emily Atack (The Inbetweeners), Terry Stone (Anuvahood), Jason Maza (Fish Tank) and T J Ramini (24) star alongside each other, giving the film a solid British cast full of talent.

From the look of the trailer, I get a slight rip-off feeling of 2011′s Drive, as if Bennett is trying to write a British version. Personally, I’m not on-the-edge-of-my-seat excited, »

Review: ‘Tonight You’re Mine’ Is Thin, One-Note and Hard to Sit Through

12 May 2012 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

David Mackenzie’s Tonight You’re Mine offers an adequate travelogue depiction of Scotland’s T in the Park music festival, with a minuscule, tired story mixed in. Shot amid the real event, the movie’s best and most noteworthy moments are the montages, wide shots and other scenic depictions of the throngs cavorting around the various stages, tents and camping areas. The rest of it is flagrantly ridiculous junk, about feuding rockers Adam (Luke Treadaway) and Morello (Natalia Tena), who are handcuffed together by a black musician bent on teaching the white protagonists a lesson, fulfilling all the requirements of what Spike Lee calls the “magical Negro.” Yet, in one of the great all-time cinematic surprises, Adam and Morello grow fond of each other and begin to relish being chained together. Their significant others, who are also at the festival, struggle to make sense of things. This leads to a lot of spectacular tedium, as »

Tonight, You’re Mine Movie Review

12 May 2012 5:45 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Tonight, You’re Mine Director: David Mackenzie Cast: Luke Treadaway, Natalia Tena, Mathew Baynton, Alastair Mackenzie, Kari Corbett, Sophie Wu and Al Green (Yes, That Al Green) It feels reductive to look down upon romantic comedies. Some say, they’re formulaic, conventional and are overly saccharin. The same can be said of any genre and any bad movie. As put, a bad movie is a bad movie, and by the same token, a good movie is a good movie. “Tonight, You’re Mine” is a good movie. On the surface, it’s a concert movie but underneath it, it’s a romantic comedy, a good one at that. It turns the mundane into interesting  [ Read More ] »

Tonight You're Mine Exclusive Clip: The Handcuffs Go On

11 May 2012 4:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Handcuffing two people in real life would probably be the quickest way to get yourself arrested and make those people hate each other, but in the movies, it always seems to work. Going back to Alfred Hitchcock's classic caper The 39 Steps, the ol' "handcuff together the two people who don't like ach other" trick has led to all kinds of unlikely romances-- and it's at it again this weekend in Tonight You're Mine, the new indie opening in theaters today. Luke Treadaway and Natalia Tena play two musicians from different bands who find themselves handcuffed to each other in the middle of an enormous Scottish music festival-- and as they say in the business, the show must go on anyway. In this exclusive clip from Tonight You're Mine that we're premiering below, we see exactly how their characters Adam and Morello get chained together, in the kind of odd »

Exclusive Clip From Tonight You're Mine

Roadside Attractions has provided ComingSoon.net with an exclusive clip from David McKenzie's Tonight You're mine , starring Luke Treadaway ( Attack the Block ) and Natalia Tena ("Harry Potter," "Game of Thrones") as two musicians who meet while attending Scotland's annual T in the Park music festival and are handcuffed together by a mysterious stranger who then disappears with the key. Treadaway plays Adam, one half of the American synth-pop duo The Make, while Tena is Morello, the lead singer of a punky British girl group. From the second they meet, they don't get along at all and being bound together puts their relationships with their real significant others--his girlfriend is a supermodel, her boyfriend is a banker--into question as they spend 24 hours »

Review: David Mackenzie's Music Festival Rom-Com 'Tonight You're Mine' Has A Tin Ear

7 May 2012 6:57 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Not many films are set at music festivals. D.A. Pennebaker’s documentary, “Monterey Pop” is vital, we’ll grant you, and other rock docs that expose something fundamental about the artists they’re profiling (“Don’t Look Back,” “Gimme Shelter”) remain compelling portraits of some of the most important artists of the twentieth-century. But, much like stand-up comedy or running for high office, fictional recreations of what compels a human being to get up onstage in front of thousands of people and expose themselves to the public at large, are far and few between.

With this in mind we turn to “You Instead,” which is director David Mackenzie’s seventh feature film, not that you’d known it from anything on display here. It has all the manufactured, forcible ‘fun’ of a T-Mobile flash-mob advert although it attempts to weave a spontaneous star-cross’d romance out of a happenstance meeting »

First Clip from Cheerful Weather For The Wedding with Felicity Jones

30 April 2012 8:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Felicity Jones is one of the finest young actresses from the UK to rise in recent years, and it’s always good news to hear about her upcoming projects.

Cheerful Weather for the Wedding marks Donald Rice’s feature directorial debut, co-writing the script with Mary Henely-Magill (also making her debut), and sees Jones starring as the young lead in 1930s England:

“England, 1932. Today is the wedding day of Dolly Thatcham, and her family is arriving at the manor house with all the cheerfulness, chaos and grievances that bubble to the surface at such gatherings. Trouble soon appears in the shape of Joseph, Dolly’s lover from the previous summer, who throws her feelings into turmoil. Dolly’s mother will not allow her carefully laid plans for her daughter’s future to be threatened, and as the clock ticks, the bride can’t decide whether to run away with Joseph »

5 Questions from Tribeca: Elizabeth McGovern

24 April 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Elizabeth McGovern first got Hollywood's attention with star-making roles in "Ordinary People" and "Ragtime." She's currently part of the marvelous ensemble cast on "Downton Abbey" as American-born Lady Cora Crawley, wife of Robert, Earl of Grantham, and mother to three feisty young women.

In "Cheerful Weather for the Wedding," a Tribeca Film Festival narrative feature, McGovern has a similar and perhaps more thankless role as the sensible Mrs. Thatcham. Her daughter Dolly (Felicity Jones) spends the morning of her wedding swilling rum and weighing her future; and when her old paramour Joseph (Luke Treadaway) shows up, it's just another hitch in a chaotic day full of mischievous, cranky, or downright drunken relatives.

Read on for more from Lady Crawley herself on the state of modern love, motherhood, and the appearance of Shirley MacLaine in the third season of "Downton."

I thought that, for the time and the era, the mother character wasn't all that evil. »

[Tribeca Review] Cheerful Weather for the Wedding

24 April 2012 8:30 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Many films focus on the proposal, the engagement, the planning or the actual wedding, but few take a look at the anxious hours in anticipation of the holy matrimony. In the UK production Cheerful Weather for the Wedding, this anxiety is weighty, as an unrequited romance is lamented between the bride Dolly (Felicity Jones) and fleeting companion Joseph (Luke Treadaway). Making his feature debut, director Donald Rice has created a pleasant portrait of attachment and its effects, with a main relationship that is a breeze to become invested in.

“A short engagement makes for a long marriage,” remarks Dolly’s mother (Elizabeth McGovern), one of the many family members scurrying about this mansion. Despite a passionate previous summer with Joseph, told in smartly structured warm-colored flashbacks, Dolly is set to marry another man whom she only recently committed to on this March day, captured with a cold palette.

Tribeca Film Festival: Elizabeth McGovern on playing English matriarchs

24 April 2012 6:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In Cheerful Weather for the Wedding — the kind of fun, exceedingly British film where the humor is the only thing drier than the Sunday roast — Elizabeth McGovern plays the matriarch of an English estate during the early half of the 20th-century trying to make sure her daughter gets married to the right man. Now if that sounds familiar, that means you’re a fan of Downton Abbey, in which McGovern plays Lady Grantham, the show’s Made-in-the-usa queen of the castle.

“It’s definitely in a style, a riff, that’s reminiscent of Downton,” says McGovern, who sports an English accent in the film. »

Dallas Iff 2012 Dispatch: Animal Style Friday

22 April 2012 8:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Day 2 of my Dallas International Film Festival experience started on an interesting note. I'm used to waking up really early to begin my day, and when I realized that I didn't have to set an alarm because the first movie didn't start until 4 pm, I woke up sans alarm clock and it was glorious.

I woke up with enough time to get some work done and even partook in my first ever In-n-Out Burger. I sought advice from everyone who's ever been there before and was advised to get a neapolitan milkshake and my fries "animal style." My friends are all smart people and they did not steer me wrong. I'm not a foodie who normally takes pictures of his food, mainly because I don't eat all that healthy, but that's what my meal looked like in the photo at the top.

My first film of the day was Tonight You're Mine, »
