India: Nature’s Wonderland; I Want That Wedding review – biodiversity in the east and nuptials in the west

22 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A BBC2 documentary highlights an alternative view of the bustling country, focusing on its flora and fauna – and Channel 5 reinforces wedding stereotypes with bridezillas and uninterested grooms

You will not be surprised to hear India described as “a vibrant, bustling world, home to over a billion people”. It’s like a national motto imposed by outsiders. Shame it’s too long to fit on a licence plate.

India: Nature’s Wonderland (BBC2) may have opened with these words, but it was trying to highlight an alternative view of the country as one of the most biodiverse places on earth. A tag team of presenters – Liz Bonnin in the west, Freida Pinto in the northeast and Jon Gupta in the Himalayas – sought to demonstrate the immense scope of India’s landscape and its wildlife.

Blunt Force Trauma trailer: Mickey Rourke is dodging bullets

Blunt Force Trauma trailer

The Blunt Force Trauma trailer has just landed. The film stars Mickey Rourke, Ryan Kwanten and Freida Pinto, and has quite the interesting plot. Revolving around underground gun-fights, the movie echoes the likes of 13 Tzameti from a few years back. This film, directed by Ken Sanzel will be going straight to DVD and the VOD channels, but we thought it was worth a look.

From cockfighting rings and train yards, to basements and barns across South America, modern-day warriors put on bulletproof vests and battle one another in underground gunfights to gain riches and respect. It’s known only as “The Game” and Zorringer (Rourke) is its elusive champion. John (Kwanten) is looking for the ultimate duel with Zorringer while Colt is seeking revenge for the death of her brother. The two gunslingers travel from one shootout to another on a dangerous journey of love, violence, »

Mickey Rourke & Freida Pinto in 'Blunt Force Trauma' Official Trailer

19 August 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This one feels different." The official UK trailer has debuted for a new film called Blunt Force Trauma, starring Mickey Rourke, Ryan Kwanten and Freida Pinto. Despite that rather interesting cast, this is actually going straight-to-dvd and looks a bit like a low budget clunker with some very underlit scenes. The film is about gunfighters, or modern day gun-slingers who actually fight with pistols and bulletproof vests. You know what, that is a cool idea I'll give them that, but this has other problems. Anyway, the cast includes Jon Mack, Jason Gibson, Carolina Gómez and Maruia Shelton. Check it out below if you're curious. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Ken Sanzel's Blunt Force Trauma, direct from YouTube: From cockfighting rings and train yards, to basements and barns across South America, modern-day warriors put on bulletproof vests and battle one another in underground gunfights to gain riches and respect. »

Freida Pinto And Ryan Kwanten Are Illegal Gunslingers In Blunt Force Trauma International Trailer

18 August 2015 8:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Voltage Pictures is yet to confirm whether the film would get a theatrical release, the company has today unveiled the international trailer for gritty crime drama Blunt Force Trauma.

Bringing together Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto and Ryan Kwanten as John, the film opens with the latter character, a dueller disillusioned after he no longer feels the adrenaline rush from his daring sport of choice. That leaves Kwanten’s protagonist with one choice: to seek out and find the elusive Zorringer (Mickey Rourke) and challenge who many consider to be the true expert in the field. Along this journey he’ll cross paths with Pinto’s Colt, and the pair have been described as “gunfighters and sometimes lovers, on parallel but very different journeys through an underground dueling culture.”

Though the plot doesn’t exactly leap off the page, the international trailer harbors enough gritty action and stylized set-pieces to hold our interest. »

New poster for Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups featuring Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale and Natalie Portman

A new poster has arrived online for Terrence Malick’s upcoming romantic drama Knight of Cups featuring Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale and Natalie Portman

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.

In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, »

"...a screenwriter living in Los Angeles tries to make sense of the strange events occurring around him..."

10 August 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The fourth season of "The Mindy Project" on Hulu will find Mindy Kaling's self-absorbed but dedicated Dr. Mindy Lahiri pregnant and wondering what would have happened if she'd never met Danny (Chris Messina), the father of her baby. Debuting on September 15, the 26-episode season will open with an alternate-reality episode that explores a Danny-less universe. Mindy wakes up next to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who will play a reality-tv producer, and Freida Pinto will play Mindy's doppelganger. Kaling also promised a road-trip storyline with Danny and Ike Barinholtz's Morgan Tookers during this year's TCA presentations. And, or course, there's the growing fetus inside Mindy. "We always thought it was funny that an Ob/Gyn would have an accidental pregnancy," Kaling revealed at the TCAs. Following Danny's flight to India in last season's finale, we'll finally meet Mindy's parents. Danny's Staten Island matron Annette, played by Rhea Perlman, will also re-appear on the. »

Freida Pinto responds to Hrithik Roshan’s praise

1 August 2015 6:14 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

When a dancing icon like Hrithik Roshan praises someone’s dancing abilities and performance, there is no way that it’s anything less than spectacular. Such was what we now believe was Freida Pinto’s brilliance in her last release Desert Dancer where she plays a dance performer who’s the inspiration for the character of Afshin Ghaffarian. The film is based on his life story set at the time when dance and music was banned in Iran.

Hrithik Roshan seemed spellbound by her performance in Desert Dancer and sang her praises on a popular social networking site. Freida was very humbled by his kind gesture and shares her response here since she’s not very active on social media.

Says Pinto, “Gosh why would i ignore him? We’ve had a lovely email exchange. I did miss his call because I was travelling but it’s very kind and »

Freida Pinto responds to Hrithik Roshans tweet

30 July 2015 5:07 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

A few days ago, Hrithik Roshan decided to speak his heart out when he was left in awe of Indian-Hollywood actress Freida Pinto after seeing her performance in Desert Dancer. While the superstar, a brilliant dancer himself, took to Twitter to praise her, it was rather surprising when the actress did not respond to his tweets. When Hrithik Roshan decided to wish her personally, he apparently tried contacting her but in vain. Hrithik then took to Twitter to talk about it saying, "Has anyone out there seen 'Desert Dancer'? Pure passion ignited. Most incredible film I have seen. Such amazing actors. Bravo to d entire team. N how amazing is Frieda Pinto. Nver seen anyone dance like that. Wanted 2 wish her but she doesn't pick up my phone! Maybe she'l get this. ;)" However, it seems that somebody finally contacted actress Freida Pinto to tell her about Hrithik Roshan's best wishes. »

Pics: From The Dark Knight to ‘Knight Of Cups’ for Christian Bale

15 June 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Directorial enigma Terrence Malick‘s latest Knight Of Cups is currently awaiting a release date. The writer/helmer’s work of late has divided commentators into “profound!” and “pretentious!” camps, with entries such as The Tree Of Life provoking cheers and boos in equal measure.

While the cinemagoing public are deprived of his latest offering, some promotional shots have been released which display Malick and Dop Emmanuel Lubezki‘s typical flair for eye-catching imagery:

Unveiled at the Berlin International Film Festival, anticipation is naturally high whatever the outcome. Cups follows Christian Bale as tortured movie scribe Rick, who roams around Hollywood pondering the nature of existence.

He’s laden with the requisite Daddy issues, and of course the poor soul is involved with a succession of beautiful women – Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman and Imogen Poots co-star.

Yes, it looks like Rick really is having a tough time of it, but never mind, »
