Festival hit Son of Saul, Wadjda director’s next film among pick-ups.

UK distributor Curzon Artificial Eye has bolstered its Cannes coffers with the acquisitions of festival drama Son of Saul, Mustang and Percy Shelley biopic A Storm in the Stars.

Mustang, playing in Directors Fortnight, from debut director Deniz Gamze Erguven is the story of five sisters growing up in a remote Turkish village who attempt to assimilate into the modern world, despite the pull of tradition from their family and community.

The deal was negotiated with Kinology.

Haifaa Al-Mansour’s (Wadjda) A Storm in the Stars, currently in pre-production, charts the love affair between poet Percy Shelley and 18 year-old Mary Wollstonecraft, later the writer of Frankenstein.

Rickman, Cooke Join "Limehouse Golem"

17 April 2015 9:33 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Alan Rickman, Olivia Cooke ("Bates Motel," Ouija") and Douglas Booth ("Jupiter Ascending," "Great Expectations") have boarded Juan Carlos Medina's gothic murder mystery "The Limehouse Golem" at Lionsgate.

Jane Goldman has penned the adaptation of Peter Ackroyd's best-selling novel "Dan Leno And The Limehouse Golem" which is set in London in 1880.

A series of murders has shaken the community to the point where people believe that only a legendary creature from dark times, a mythical Golem, must be responsible.

The tone is said to be akin to a mix of "Se7en" and "The Woman In Black". Stephen Woolley, Elizabeth Karlsen and Joanna Laurie will produce.

Jupiter Ascending Blu-Ray Gets Detailed and Dated

6 April 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Wachowski's latest science fiction adventure, Jupiter Ascending, may not have lit up the box office, but there was still plenty of fun for movie-goers willing to give it a chance.  Today, Warner Bros. have announced details on the film's blu-ray release, including a date and special features, so you can check it out at home!

While I didn't "love" Jupiter Ascending as much as I wanted to, I didn't hate the film either.  It has a lot of great elements behind it, with impressive visuals and characters you want to know more about.  While I wish it had been paced differently, I don't exactly get all the hatred the movie gets either.  I thought it was still a lot of fun, and if you skipped out on it, I think it's worth watching when it hits blu-ray on June 2.  Check out the features coming on the disc when it »

In just a couple months, school will be out for the summer, but for the moment, class is in session with "The Riot Club."

Starring Sam ClaflinMax IronsDouglas BoothNatalie DormerBen Schnetzer, and Jessica Brown Findlay, and adapted from Laura Wade's acclaimed 2010 play, “Posh” (she also wrote the screenplay), the film takes viewers inside the rotten inner-workings of The Riot Club at Oxford University. It's here where the wealthy, privileged, upper crust youth let their hair down in some truly noxious ways. And in this clip, you see them assembled, drinking with enthusiasm, and singing "God Save The Queen." "The Riot Club" is now playing in limited release and is available on VOD. Watch below.    »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will hit theaters on February 19, 2016, going up against the EuropaCorp thriller Shut In. When the Bough Breaks will hit theaters on September 16, 2016, which is currently the only movie set for release on that date, but it comes just one week before Warner Bros.' The Lego Movie spinoff Ninjago on September 23, 2016.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to Hit Theaters on February 19th, 2016

31 March 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Like the living dead that roam the 19th-century English countryside of its story, the movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has refused to die, shambling on through multiple director and lead actor changes over the past several years to finally begin filming last September. Now we know when to expect to see the living dead of Meryton, as an official release date for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has now been set for early next year.

According to Box Office Mojo, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will hit theaters on February 19th, 2016, from Sony/Screen Gems.

In the film, “the heroine, Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague.”

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Will Munch Moviegoers’ Brains Next February

31 March 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, a big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s gleefully silly Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a supernatural send-up of the Jane Austen classic, is happening. Today, Screen Gems announced that the Burr Steers-directed horror-comedy will hit screens on February 19th, 2016.

The pic will follow Victorian lady Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James, of Cinderella fame) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote) and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse), whose attempts to combat the everyday pressures of life in their class-conscious society are complicated by the presence of cranium-craving zombies.

Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Sam Riley make up the stacked supporting cast.

As it stands, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is only contending with thriller Shut In in its weekend, though it’s opening one week after heavy hitters Deadpool and Zoolander 2 (plus whatever Nicholas Sparks trifle 20th Century »

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Set for February 19, 2016

31 March 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After years of languishing in development hell, I’m still surprised that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies actually got made, let alone that it’s coming to theaters. Screen Gems has announced Burr Steers’ horror-comedy, based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, will finally open on February 19, 2016. The story follows Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as they try to navigate societal pressures of the landed gentry and fend off hoards of zombies. I’m surprised the studio didn’t move the film up a week and get in that Valentine’s Day crowd.  Of course, that would put it against the heavy competition of Deadpool and Zoolander 2. Currently, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is only sharing its weekend with the thriller Shut In. The film also stars Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, »

The Riot Club: When Being Posh Is Not Enough

30 March 2015 7:38 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Those of us who lead hapless lives know how frightening getting up in the morning can be. Instead of rising and embracing the daylight with an ardent cuddle and a zealous "Yahoo!" we see grey clouds overhead and wonder aloud, "What now?" Another egg carton with broken shells? A second bedbug infestation within twelve months? Still no replies to our Christian Mingles ad even though we've noted we can recite the Book of Revelation by heart in Latin?

Ah, if only we were born into a family of elites. The ultra-rich. Aristocrats with an enviable gene pool.

But instead we're impoverished and pear-shaped with squinty eyes and in need of Proactiv+.

On top of these misfortunes, we really know the gods are against us if while fingering the remote, we accidentally come across Joshua Jackson in The Skulls (2000), and begin to watch it out of inertia. This incapacitating thriller was inspired by Yale's secretive society, »

Sam Claflin on The Riot Club, Playing a Wanker, and His Pretty Woman Moment

27 March 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When The Riot Club debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last September, I predicted it would be your next favorite pretty-boys flick. Think The History Boys meets Skulls, but with satirical commentary on the English class system and a cast straight out of British GQ. Based on Laura Wade’s play Posh, the film follows a club of hedonistic wankers, including The Hunger GamesSam Claflin, Jupiter Ascending’s Douglas Booth, and The Host’s Max Irons. But no cast member has more to chew on than Claflin, whose character Alastair has spent his life living in the shadow of his older brother, and [spoiler] who actually stands on a table during a debauched formal dinner and makes a speech about how much he hates poor people. Claflin, for the record, grew up very much not posh in Ipswich, Suffolk. Vulture spoke to him by phone about playing the bad guy for once, »
