Lff 2017: ‘Journey’s End’ Review: Dir. Saul Dibb (2017)

9 October 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Journey’s End review: Saul Dibb directs an all-star British cast in this, the fifth screen adaptation of the famous Rc Sheriff play from the early twentieth century.

Journey’s End review by Paul Heath.

Journey’s End review

Bringing an updated version of the seminal 1928 play Journey’s End by Rc Sheriff to the screen, one which has had the likes of Laurence Olivier treading the boards in it over the years, and the four other adaptations that have appeared one the big and small screen in the decades since, is not an easy feat, but Saul Dibb’s 2017 version is totally worthy of it existence, and comes to the UK following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month.

The story is set 100 years ago during the first world war, the German and British sides at a stalemate, a position they’ve been in for well over a year. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Journey’s End’

19 September 2017 11:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Few stage staples from 90 years ago would easily translate to the screen today, yet R.C. Sherriff’s once near-ubiquitous “Journey’s End” proves potent as ever in this sturdy new adaptation from director Saul Dibb and writer-producer Simon Reade. While there’s little staginess about the endeavor, the preserved tight focus on a handful of British soldiers “waiting to be killed” in a trench near Wwi’s finish provides all the character and emotional involvement that was lacking in the more action-oriented recent “Dunkirk.” The latter’s success — plus next year’s centennial of the Great War’s close — could further boost a strong drama likely to benefit from solid reviews.

A captain wounded at Passchendaele himself, Sherriff drew on three years’ service experience to write his greatest triumph (which he subsequently turned into a novel, also a source here). Premiering in 1928 with 21-year-old Laurence Olivier in a breakthrough role — one he foolishly declined to repeat in »

Toronto Film Festival: 12 Hot Titles Likely to Spark Bidding Wars

6 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Toronto Film Festival isn’t just an essential stop for Oscar hopefuls. There’s also an active film market that results in plenty of all-night bidding wars. This year, studios and distributors will make the trek across the border, on the hunt for films that can be arthouse hits or awards winners. Here are 12 films that will have companies breaking out their checkbooks.

Hostiles (pictured above)

Sales Agent: WME, CAA (U.S.), Bloom (International)

Director: Scott Cooper

Cast: Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Ben Foster

Why Buyers Are Circling: This Western tops the list of distributors making the trip up North, because Bale is one of the few actors who can draw crowds. His last effort with Cooper, the gritty crime drama “Out of the Furnace,” was more admired than watched, but Bale’s involvement guarantees that screenings will be packed. Strong reviews out of Telluride, where it bowed last weekend, will »

Atypical: Netflix's great new comedy drama about autism

10 August 2017 8:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Catherine Pearson Aug 11, 2017

New series Atypical lands on Netflix today. Here's a spoiler-free look at why it's one of the best new comedy dramas around...

This article contains narrative references from early in the series but no plot spoilers.

Netflix’s new series Atypical is a lovable comedy drama with well-rounded characters and a wonderful central performance from Keir Gilchrist as Sam, the latest autistic protagonist to hit the small screen.

On the big screen, the representation of characters with autism (often used interchangeably with Asperger Syndrome in fiction) leans heavily on the idea of the mathematical genius. In heart-warming 2015 film X+Y, Asa Butterfield’s character Nathan is an academically gifted teenager who takes part in an international mathematics competition. »

The movie has officially filled out its core cast, bringing in some promising up-and-comers to star alongside Pegg and Frost.

Deadline reports that Finn Cole (Animal Kingdom, Peaky Blinders) is set to lead the cast of Slaugtherhouse Rulez, which is going to be the first movie produced by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's production banner Stolen Picture.

From Amandla to Zayn: See How Some of the Hottest Celebs Are Inspiring Baby Name Trends

7 August 2017 11:25 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When it comes to baby names, celebrities are famous for choosing monikers for their minis that stand out from the crowd.

Need examples? See Kanye and Kim Kardashian West‘s kids North and Saint, Beyoncé and Jay-Z‘s daughter Blue Ivy and twins Sir and Rumi and Andy Grammer‘s newborn daughter Louisiana K.

But sometimes, celebrities influence baby-name trends without even making the decision to choose the unique names themselves. Stars like Ansel Elgort, Niall Horan and Saoirse Ronan, for instance, have launched a wave of choices simply by possessing the monikers themselves.

Film Feature: Best & Worst of 2017 So Far by HollywoodChicago.com

12 July 2017 6:45 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The 4th of July holiday is over and the second half of the year looms before us, so what better time than to assess 2017 so far, with the best and worst films of the first half of the year. The film critic contributors of HollywoodChicago.com – Patrick McDonald, Jon Espino and Spike Walters – offer up their choices for Best and Worst.

The first half of 2017 was fairly strong, as the increasingly crowded film marketplace is not necessarily holding the best films until the fall “Oscar season.” Each film critic will offer three films, as Patrick and Jon will assess their personal “Best,” and the virtuous Spike Walters will take on the “Worst.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming's Tom Holland on becoming his favourite superhero

Spider-Man: Homecoming's Tom Holland on becoming his favourite superheroSpider-Man: Homecoming's Tom Holland on becoming his favourite superheroBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine7/5/2017 1:50:00 Pm

The third time should, at least, be charming.

That’s because Tom Holland is playing the friendly neighborhood webslinger in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Exuberant and super-friendly, the 21-year-old English actor is the third person to play Marvel Comics’ most popular superhero on the big screen since the turn of the century. And if the overeager, sarcastic teen approach to Peter Parker that he introduced in last year’s Captain America: Civil War is maintained, we’ll have a much different wall crawler than with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s angstier interpretations.

“I tried to bring a lot of levity to the character, so at every opportunity I got I was trying to crack jokes and be the wise guy,” says Holland over the phone. »

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’: How a Sundance Breakout Landed the Superhero Gig of a Lifetime and Didn’t Sell Out

5 July 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jon Watts is hardly the first up-and-coming filmmaker to be plucked from the indie film fold to helm a big-budget, high-stakes blockbuster. Nevertheless, the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” director was still surprised when Marvel came calling after his second film, “Cop Car,” screened at Sundance in 2015. Over the past few years, hiring first- and second-time directors to direct massive tentpole features has become standard procedure, from Colin Trevorrow to Josh Trank, Marc Webb to Gareth Edwards. When Watts got the call, he geeked out.

“I was so excited to just go to Marvel,” Watts said. “I actually still the visitor’s pass that they gave me to just get on the lot and everything. I wasn’t expecting any of this. It’s like when Bart Simpson goes to New York and he goes to the Mad Magazine headquarters.”
