Robert Carlyle: ‘Big films don’t feed your soul’

16 July 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

He dominated the 90s with hits such as Trainspotting and The Full Monty, but has spent the past 10 years avoiding blockbusters. Now he’s back as the director, and accidental star, of Glaswegian comedy The Legend of Barney Thomson

Robert Carlyle walks into the room holding a small, pale pink alarm clock. Not, it turns out, a way of keeping tabs on how long he has to put up with me, but a present from Lorraine Kelly, whose TV show he’s just come from. “That’s going in my daughter’s bedroom later,” he says, with an hint of paternal triumph.

If being invited on to breakfast TV is any guide, Carlyle is still riding the wave of admiration, respect and popularity he earned in the mid-90s, when first Trainspotting and then The Full Monty propelled him to household-name status. But in truth, he’s been off the »

Producers Mem Ferda and Adam J. Merrifield Create a Bloody Tag Team in K-Shop

6 July 2015 12:42 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Tagline: "The Night is Over." K-Shop is a horror thriller from director Dan Pringle. A trailer for the film was released in late 2014. The clip shows drunkards harassing a kebab owner. Not much later, a movie poster was released for the film (seen left). The graphic alludes to one shop owner's solution, to rowdy clubbers, murder. Now, two stills from the film are hosted here. And, producer Mem Ferda has something to say about the film. Ferda compares the film to Sweeney Todd (2007). Ferda states: "I can only describe it as an intoxicating, super-slaughter, Sweeney Todd-esque ride that cleverly has a stab at British binge drinking." The bloodshed will be close and personal. As well, Ferda relates part of the film's social or moral message. He goes on to say: "It is high time a socially relevant film like this was made, highlighting the significant problems of drink culture »

What was the best year in film history? HitFix readers continue the debate

1 May 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix's recent spate of "Best Year in Film History" pieces inevitably spurred some furious debate among our readers, with some making compelling arguments for years not included in our pieces (2007 and 1968 were particularly popular choices) and others openly expressing their bewilderment at the inclusion of others (let's just say 2012 took a beating). In the interest of giving voice to your comments, below we've rounded up a few of the most thoughtful, passionate, surprising and occasionally incendiary responses to our pieces, including my own (I advocated for The Year of Our Lynch 2001, which is obviously the best). Here we go... Superstar commenter "A History of Matt," making an argument for 1968: The Graduate. Bullit. The Odd Couple. The Lion in Winter. Planet of the Apes. The Thomas Crown Affair. Funny Girl. Rosemary's Baby. And of course, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And that's only a taste of the greatness of that year. "Lothar the Flatulant, »

'Duck Commander Musical': Theater Review

21 April 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

You don’t have to be a barber to love Sweeney Todd, or a nun to enjoy The Sound of Music. But it probably helps to be a — pardon the term — redneck to endure the 90 months, er minutes, of Duck Commander Musical, a love letter to simple folk with a penchant for guns, God and facial hair. What might have been a campy and hilarious look at some good ole boys who hit it big turns out to be a paean to religion and family. With fart jokes. As the curtain goes up on “Faith, Food and Family,

Theater Review: Hypocrites and a Vicious Sock Puppet in Hand to God

8 April 2015 | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For centuries, theatrical antiheroes have vied for attention by going to extremes, but Tyrone, in Robert Askins’s Hand to God, may be the first, onstage at least, to bite off an ear. He’s as violent and vengeful as Sweeney Todd, and, despite his evangelical upbringing, as comically foul-mouthed as any Mamet mook. (His voice combines the appetitive rumble of Cookie Monster with the sexual bravado of James Brown.) You can’t just write him off as psychotic, though, because that would suggest a framework of sanity from which he has departed. He is, rather, pure, untrammelled id, eternally evil and born that way, and thus psychologically unique in dramatic literature. Unique physically too. He has big, vacant eyes, limbs like linguini, a shock of maraschino hair — and, oh, some guy’s arm up his back.Yes, he’s a sock puppet, and also, in what may be the apotheosis of color-blind casting, »

Ryan Gosling & Emma Thompson For Beauty And The Beast?

13 February 2015 1:14 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Bill Condon’s live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is sticking to the structure of the Disney animated movie, right down to the same characters and same songs. Emma Watson was the first to be cast, taking the role of Belle. It’s actually the second time somebody gave her this role – Guillermo Del Toro was working on a non-musical, non-Disney version and Emma was his pick too.

There’s been a rumour circulating around Hollywood’s tracking boards and private forums that Ryan Gosling has been asked to play The Beast. I know that this started because an agency source referred to Gosling as being a preferred choice for the role, but I don’t know that it ever went any further. I’m certainly not holding my breath – some Hemsworth or another seems much more likely.

As for Mrs. Potts, the housemaid turned teapot, Condon seems »

20 highest-grossing 18-certificate movies: Wolf of Wall Street, Gone Girl

2 February 2015 4:12 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Although it comes as no great shock, Fifty Shades of Grey has officially been granted an 18 certificate for "strong sex and nudity".

It's something of a rarity these days to even see a film get an 18, with studios keen to get their films in front of the widest possible audiences. The highest classification is usually reserved for movies containing extreme sex or violence, but it doesn't necessarily have to mean it's box office poison.

Given the right story circumstances, an 18 can hit the target and find financial success. You only need to glance back to late last year to see the column inches/pixels generated by David Fincher's explosive Gone Girl.

Digital Spy takes a look at the 20 highest-grossing 18 certificate movies in the UK below (note: figures are not adjusted for inflation):

1. The Wolf of Wall Street

Release date: January 17, 2014

Total UK box office takings: £22,699,724

2. Gone Girl
