Helen Mirren in talks for Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

27 August 2016 4:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Casting continues on Disney’s upcoming adaptation of The Nutcracker, with THR reporting that Helen Mirren is in talks to star in the live-action film, which is based upon E.T.A. Hoffman’s story and the ballet by Peter Tchaikovsky.

Titled The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, the film is being directed by Lasse Hallstrom (The Cider House Rules) and follows “a young girl, Clara (played by Mackenzie Foy), who receives a nutcracker doll from her godfather on Christmas Eve. When she goes to check on it later, the clock strikes midnight and she finds herself thrust into a fantastical world where she is in the middle of a war between gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice.”

Also set to feature in the cast of the film alongside Foy and Mirren are Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman and ballerina Misty Copeland. It is currently without a release date, but expected in »

Newswire: Helen Mirren might join the cast of Disney’s The Nutcracker

25 August 2016 3:28 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Helen Mirren seems like one of those people who spends her holidays in St. Bart’s, drinking Mai Tais and receiving shoulder massages from muscular men and not giving a shit that it’s Christmas. But she’s also one of our finest living actresses, which is why, should she decide to do so, she’s perfectly capable of pretending to enjoy snowflakes and jingle bells in Disney’s upcoming live-action movie version of The Nutcracker.

Variety doesn’t say which part Mirren is up for in the film, simply that she’s in talks right now and that, should she take the part, she’ll be starring alongside Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, and ballerina Misty Copeland, all of whom presumably enjoy fruity, rum-based cocktails and exotic tropical locales. (Well, maybe not Copeland. Keeping a ballet body is hard.) 15-year-old Mackenzie Foy will play Clara; Foy’s been a working »

The Little Prince Review

6 August 2016 10:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix has only been in the feature film business for about a year, and yet the company has struck gold again, with its acquisition of the French animated film The Little Prince. The movie – based on the seminal 1943 novella by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – was initially set for a theatrical release back in March, thanks to a distribution deal with Paramount. However, that plan was ultimately dropped for unknown reasons, and Netflix was able to scoop up what has since become the most successful French animated film in cinema history, due to its box office receipts from across the globe. Now it’s available on the streaming service, and viewers can check out the “Netflix original” from the comfort of their own homes.

Yet, with all the hubbub surrounding the film’s release, the question remains if director Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda) has crafted a movie worthy of the cherished source material, »

Film Review: The Little Prince

4 August 2016 10:09 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The famed prince in Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s story begins by showing you a drawing of an elephant inside a snake, which, to his chagrin, most adults see as the drawing of a hat. That is until the young prince meets The Aviator who “gets him” when he proclaims that the painting is obviously a serpent.

A new reinvention of the fabled classic, The Little Prince, may similarly divide audiences young and old between an invitation to imagine what lies beneath the surface and a more pedestrian, superficial tale. But at least this prince’s aviator, director Mark Osborne of Kung Fu Panda fame, demonstrates the same profound love for the story as the Aviator does for his Little Prince from the original fable.

In this re-imagining (it’s really a sequel, more on that later) we follow the stressful life of a young girl, Violet, as she is goaded »

‘The Little Prince’ Review: Netflix Delivers A Strange, Satisfying, Star-Studded Adaptation Of The Kid Lit Classic

4 August 2016 10:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the dedication of his immensely beloved 1943 novella, “The Little Prince,” author and aristocrat (and aviator) Antoine de Saint-Exupéry made a passing remark that succinctly captured the soul of his story: “All grown-ups were children first (but few of them remember it).” While the unique locations and landscapes of Saint Exupéry’s tale might seem to resist adaptation — this is, after all, a narrative that splits its time between the Sahara Desert and a galaxy of tiny asteroids suspended in the stars — there’s a good reason why it’s been reimagined as everything from an opera, to a ballet, a stage play, an anime, a pop-up book, a graphic novel, a television series and a rather terrible live-action film by “Singin’ in the Rain” director Stanley Donen. Despite a multitude of logistical hurdles, the fundamental essence of “The Little Prince” is so pure that the narrative has proven capable »

Newswire: Morgan Freeman is in talks to play god(father) in Disney’s The Nutcracker

1 August 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Morgan Freeman’s played God onscreen as well as narrated His “biography,” and now it looks like he’ll act as His own emissary. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Freeman is in talks to play Drosselmeyer in Disney’s The Nutcracker And The Four Realms. In the original ballet, Drosselmeyer is a magician and councilman who also has a third vocation as Clara’s godfather, and he will remain a mysterious character in the upcoming live-action film that also stars dancing sensation Misty Copeland. Interstellar’s Mackenzie Foy has been cast as Drosselmeyer/Freeman’s spiritual ward, and really, who better to take you through the tenets of Christianity than the guy responsible for them, right? We mean, director Lasse Hallström’s going to have to do something to make up for the lack of dancing in the film, so he might as well play up Drosselmeyer’s magical abilities »
