Rosie (Collins) and Alex (Claflin) have been best friends since the age of five. Inseparable, the pair do everything together – including sharing a romantic (if drunk) kiss on Rosie’s 18th birthday. With plans to move away to America to study, it seems Rosie and Alex are destined to be together forever, maybe not romantically but as best friends/soulmates. However, the night of their prom leads Rosie down a completely different life path, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 - Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Director: Francis Lawrence Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin. Full cast + crew When it hit theaters, a lot of people complained that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 felt like only half of a movie. And while that may be technically correct (Part 2 hits theaters on November 20, 2015), I just never understood why people were writing it off. It doesn't feel stretched thin. It doesn't feel compromised. It's a consistently intense story that roots you deep in the underground of the surprisingly engaging conflict between the oppressed and the oppressors of Panem. As someone who didn't really care for the first...

'Still Alice' and 'Maps to the Stars' box office: Julianne Moore Oscar helps only one movie (photo: Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore in 'Still Alice') (See previous post: "'The Lazarus Effect' Box Office: Olivia Wilde Horror Movie Arrives Comatose.") The Oscars do matter. As mentioned in the previous post, Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman was up an estimated 125 percent this weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, following its four Academy Award wins – including Best Picture. Also up a hefty 24 percent – after adding 553 locations – is Sony Pictures Classics' Still Alice, which earned Julianne Moore the year's Best Actress Oscar for her performance as a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. True, an Oscar win – or key nominations – may not create mammoth blockbusters like Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, or Clint Eastwood's American Sniper. For that, »

Oscar-nominated Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club, has a new trailer for its anticipated March 27 Us release. Scherfig is a Dogme 95-er and Oscar-nominated for her film An Education (2009). Although most of Scherfig’s eight films are romantic comedies, The Riot Club is darker material. In the film, young Oxford University students join a “Riot Club” and exercise their darkest thoughts about “poor people”; probably murder ensues. The cast is a chorus of rising Britons led by Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer, Downton Abbey‘s Jessica Brown Findlay, as well as Sam Claflin, Max Irons, and Douglas Booth. The film is an adaptation by Laura Wade of her own West End play, Posh.
Behind the camera Scherfig has been a creative and detailed director since her breakthrough film Italian for Beginners (2000), which won the Silver Berlin Bear in 2001. Watch the new trailer for The Riot Club below:

yt id="Es-jm4iDRRQ" width="500" I could have seen The Riot Club at the Toronto Film Festival last year, but I feel like it's a film I've seen too many times before. Am I wrong or are you seeing something different herec Filthy. Rich. Spoiled. Rotten. A band of overprivileged rich boys run wild in this savagely funny satire of money, sex and power. In the elite realm of Oxford University, no society is more exclusive than The Riot Club, the ultra-selective fraternity for Britain's most privileged sons. When he's recruited to join, down-to-earth first-year student Miles (Max Irons) is at first amused--but he's about to get a taste of upper-crust entitlement at its ugliest when a hedonistic night of drinking and drugs spins out of control. Based on the play "Posh" by Laura Wade. Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day) Starring: Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, »

Every generation needs its preppy boy drama filled with up-and-coming faces. For the late ’80s and ’90s, it was Dead Poets Society. In the aughts, it was The Skulls. Now, in the twenty-teens, it might be The Riot Club. Max Irons and Sam Claflin play the two newest members of Oxford University’s most exclusive fraternity. Though […]

Filthy. Rich. Spoilt. Rotten. IFC Films has recently unveiled the official Us trailer for Lone Scherfig's The Riot Club, which will be getting released in March after initially premiering at Tiff 2014 last year. This debaucherous drama delves into the lives of the elite members of Oxford University's "Riot Club", based on the real-life Bullingdon Club, though I'm sure they want nothing to do with this. The young and beautiful cast of Riot Club includes Max Irons, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth, Jessica Brown Findlay, Natalie Dormer, Holliday Grainger, Olly Alexander, Tom Hollander and Sam Reid. As much as I am fond of director Lone Scherfig, I'm not any more interested in this than I was after the first trailer. Give it a shot. Here's the full trailer for Lone Scherfig's The Riot Club, officially from IFC Films (via The Film Stage): Set amongst the privileged elite of Oxford University, »

IFC Films has dropped a new trailer today for Lone Scherfig’s latest, The Riot Club. Based on Laura Wade’s West End play, Posh, the film follows the story of a young man at Oxford University as he attempts to gain acceptance into an exclusive, elitist fraternity. Think Neighbors through a stereotypical English lens.
The movie stars Max Irons as Miles Richards, whose every desire hinges upon joining the privileged group. The main bulk of the trailer serves to build up the prestige of the club, so as to possibly provide reason for why anyone would wish to be a member. Around the midway point it seems to veer into spoiler territory, but nevertheless, that first minute ought to entice potential viewers. While it’s yet to open in the U.S., the film did make its North American debut at last year’s Tiff, where it landed a crop of encouraging reviews. »

Digital Spy picks out highlights from the ceremony - and a few that didn't make the cut for the TV broadcast - below...
1. Stephen Fry
— Digital Spy Film (@digitalspyfilm) February 8, 2015
Last night was Stephen Fry's tenth stint as BAFTA host, and he was on fine form - from trading quips with a mischievous Stephen Hawking to introducing one of the biggest stars on the planet as "Tom f**king Cruise", Fry was as witty as ever without ever overstepping the mark.
The highlight? Probably his full-on lip smacker with Cuba Gooding Jr.
Serge Pizzorno's "black tie and tails" attire for the evening flaunted the dress code, »
