The Riot Club: When Being Posh Is Not Enough

6 hours ago | 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, »

Home and Away's Steve Peacocke lands role in new Emilia Clarke film

25 March 2015 4:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Home and Away star Steve Peacocke has landed another film role.

The actor, who only filmed his final scenes in Home and Away at the end of last year, will play a character called Nathan in Hollywood film Me Before You.

The new project will see Peacocke work alongside Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke and The Hunger Games actor Sam Claflin.

Me Before You is based on the best-selling British book about a 26-year-old girl, Louisa 'Lou' Clark, who falls for Will Traynor - a man left paralysed after a motorcycle accident.

Peacocke's character Nathan is the personal nurse and friend of an angry and frustrated Will, who is played by Claflin.

Peacocke has recently finished work on Fun House, a Paramount Pictures project starring Tina Fey and Margot Robbie.

He made his first appearance on Home and Away in 2011. »

The Riot Club Tries Too Hard to Make Us Hate the Rich

24 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Clueless rich guy Tom Perkins rightly became the laughingstock of the internet last year after comparing America’s “war on one-percenters” to the Nazi Kristallnacht. However detestably fatuous Perkins is in real life, it must be admitted he’d make a fascinating fictional character, perhaps in a Greek tragedy about a wealthy man so consumed by his feelings of being hated by his neighbors that he can hardly enjoy his fortune.

At its dramatically richest, The Riot Club comes close to that paradoxical knot. Oxford student Alistair Ryle (Sam Claflin) is the stuff of Occupiers’ nightmares — “I am sick to death of poor people,” he declares — but there’s also something sad and compelling about his delusion that he’ »

Review: Lone Scherfig's 'The Riot Club' A Bludgeoning Look At The British Elite

24 March 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Remember “An Education”? The 2009 movie that dashed for Oscar glory, made Carey Mulligan into a star, gracefully walked the tightrope of suspense and coming-of-age, and showcased the directing talents of Danish provocateur-esse Lone Scherfig? If you liked it as much as some of us with The Playlist did, you were most likely anticipating Scherfig’s latest project, “The Riot Club." Well, check your expectations at the door when you walk into this one, because all of the star-making directorial grace Scherfig possesses is substituted for a bludgeoning attempt at provoking the British elite into taking a long hard look at themselves through a cracked mirror. She retains her confrontational sensibilities, with none of the subtlety, and hammers a single message to mind-numbing effect. Max Irons plays Miles Richards, fresh out of prestigious Westminster and ready to assimilate himself into the culture of Oxford University. Simultaneously, Alistair Ryle (Sam Claflin) is another. »

15 Things You Didn’t Know About Emilia Clarke

24 March 2015 2:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Victoria Will/AP

Emilia Clarke’s rapid rise to the global stage has been remarkable. In just four years, she has been launched from roles in minor productions, to worldwide fame as Game of Thrones heroine Daenerys Targaryen. Her success has gone hand-in-hand with the HBO series’ enormous success.

In 2010 – just one year after graduating from Drama Centre London – the 28-year-old was cast as the star of Game of Thrones before the first season had begun filming. Now as the show approaches its fifth series, Clarke’s career is continuing to blossom, with several major roles lined up.

This summer, Clarke will feature as Sarah Connor in the highly-anticipated Terminator Genisys, alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger. It will mark her biggest film role so far, with her only other mainstream appearance coming in Dom Hemmingway with Jude Law in 2013.

She will also star in indie film Voice From The Stone, and Me Before You »

The Riot Club Review

18 March 2015 12:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Nothing without joy, everything to excess.” For the 10 members of the all-male cloak and dagger society called The Riot Club, that is a motto to live by. All of them are among the hardest-working students at Oxford University and demand they play just as relentlessly as they work. Several of them are descendants of nobility or the UK’s most powerful political leaders. Fraternizing with any person beneath an upper-class status would be out of the question for several of them. As for ordinary men and women who disagree with their archaic, conservative values: watch out.

If spending time with the most elite of English swills sounds like a fun time at the movies, then The Riot Club should be a must-see. Anyone looking to mock the spoiled rotten virtues of the upper percentile of the 1%, though, will not find too much to heckle here. The film cannot boast the »

Fire Burns Forever In First Teaser And Poster For The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

18 March 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lionsgate isn’t taking any chances when it comes to the final part of Katniss Everdeen’s saga. While The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is still several months away from release, the studio is rolling out stage one of its marketing campaign. In the spirit of the first three movies, a one-sheet poster outlining the triumphant Mockingjay has arrived online, along with a cheeky teaser trailer.

Turning to this brand new poster, the final stage of Katniss’ journey to bring down The Capitol and its devious leader President Snow is summed up by the tagline “The Fire Will Burn Forever.” Running along the central image of the burning Mockingjay pin, finally breaking free, it ties in to the message of Part 1: “If we burn, you burn with us.”

Similarly, the teaser trailer focuses its efforts on the same motif, albeit while offering little new material. While we can »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay . Part 2 Motion Poster Online

18 March 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The Hunger Games franchise has a history of motion posters – not surprising given the flaming bird logo that has represented the films for the past few years. With the final chapter, Mockingjay – Part 2 on its way, there’s a film series wrap-up underscoring the new image, which sees the Mockingjay breaking free of his circular barrier like a golden, feathery Freddie Mercury.Following on from the first Mockingjay, the second part of the story finds Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the rebels making the final push against Donald Sutherland's scheming President Snow and the Capitol, with lives on the line and sacrifices to be made. The new movie should boost the action quotient as the bigger beats are to be found lurking towards the end of Suzanne Collins’ third tome. With Francis Lawrence again directing and Lawrence joined on screen by Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Banks, »
