Goteborg, Sweden — “Lone Scherfig is one of the very best Nordic filmmakers of her generation. Skillfully, with curiosity, she has experimented with different aesthetic expressions, but it is always with wit and sharpness she portrays the complexity, passion and darkness in people’s lives,” said Goteborg Fest artistic director Jonas Holmberg, presenting the 207 Nordic Honorary Dragon Award to the Danish writer-director.

The prize-winner was honored with a three-film howcase of three films: 2000 Danish breakthrough, “Italian for Beginners”; her 2014 U.K. drama-thriller “The Riot Club”; and the Swedish premiere of her latest U.K. romantic dramedy, “Their Finest,” starring Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Bill Nighy, opening this spring.

A film student from Paris’ Sorbonne University and the University of Copenhagen, Scherfig graduated from Copenhagen’s Danish National Film School in 1984; her feature debut was the comedy, “The Birthday Trip” (1990). After several TV series and the children’s film “On Our Own »

2 February 2017 9:30 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Britt Robertson and Asa Butterfield come from two different worlds - at least they do in the new movie The Space Between Us. Coming out on Friday, the sci-fi romance tells the tale of Tulsa (Robertson) and Gardner (Butterfield), teens who begin a friendship online. What Tulsa doesn't know is that Gardner is from Mars. (Now is the time for any "Men are from Mars, women are from Venus" jokes you want to toss out.) We visited the film's Albuquerque set back in October 2015 and chatted with the down-to-Earth actors . . . see what I did there? Because it's a movie about space. Here's what we learned from the budding* superstars! Robertson loves Dr. Phil: "Today I watched a really crazy episode of Dr. Phil that I recorded yesterday. It was about the Subway guy, Jared, and the tapes. They play all the recordings of when he was speaking to this »

Rachel Weisz in Trailer for Roger Michell's New Film 'My Cousin Rachel'

25 January 2017 2:35 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"How easy it must be for a woman like your cousin Rachel to twist you around her little finger..." Fox Searchlight has unveiled a trailer for the upcoming romantic drama My Cousin Rachel, adapted from Daphne Du Maurier's novel of the same name. My Cousin Rachel stars Rachel Weisz as the cousin of a young Englishman, who falls for her as he attempts to seek revenge on her for supposedly murdering his guardian. Sam Claflin co-stars, along with Holliday Grainger, Iain Glen, Andrew Knott, and Poppy Lee Friar. This is a very powerful trailer with a very mood song in it that is designed to provoke emotions and pull viewers in. I'm curious, but not really sure what to expect, it seems a bit too romantic for my tastes. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Roger Michell's My Cousin Rachel, direct from YouTube: A dark romance, My Cousin Rachel »

Coming Distractions: Rachel Weisz plays a wicked game in this trailer for My Cousin Rachel

25 January 2017 1:25 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Daphne du Maurier’s 1951 novel My Cousin Rachel is a mystery-filled romance, with upper-class British people wondering just how trustworthy other upper-class British people are when one of their own becomes hopelessly infatuated with his cousin, a woman who may or may not have murdered her previous beau. This trailer for Roger Michell’s adaptation of the book leans harder on the romance angle than anything else, but the cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” and all of the yelling going on make it pretty clear that there’s some heavy stuff going on behind the sweeping vistas and outdoor sex. The film stars Rachel Weisz as the eponymous Rachel, as well as Sam Claflin, Holliday Grainger, and Iain Glen.

My Cousin Rachel will be in theaters on July 14, 2017.

Rachel Weisz is a Saucy Minx in New Trailer for Daphne du Maurier Adaptation ‘My Cousin Rachel’

25 January 2017 12:31 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin court disgrace (and each other) in the first trailer for Roger Michell’s “My Cousin Rachel,”  an adaptation of the 1951 novel by Daphne du Maurier, most famous for penning “Rebecca” and “The Birds.” A lesser known work, the last time “My Cousin Rachel” made it to the big screen was in 1952, starring Olivia de Havilland and Richard Burton.

The novel centers around a young man named Philip (Claflin) as he plots against his mysterious and beautiful cousin, Rachel Ashley (Weisz), whom he suspects of poisoning his guardian. Philip falls under the beautiful Rachel’s spell, losing his resolve as his infatuation grows — and maybe even endangering his own life in the process.

First Trailer for ‘My Cousin Rachel’ Finds Rachel Weisz Casting Her Dark Charms

25 January 2017 11:40 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We have a first trailer for the dark romance My Cousin Rachel, an adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier‘s classic novel. The story is centered on an Englishman (Sam Claflin) who is caught in a bit of a pickle: he plots revenge against his cousin, Rachel (Rachel Weisz), under suspicion of murder, all the while falling for her irresistible charms. Helmed by Roger Michell, who also penned the adaptation, My Cousin Rachel could be a striking, vivid portrait of lust and revenge.

Featuring a dream-like and (more) somber rendition of “Wicked Game,” the trailer plays to the strengths of its mise-en-scène and the cinematography by Mike Eley; Candlelight, rain, and period garb are on full display.

See the trailer below, along with a synopsis, for the film that also stars Game of Thrones’ Iain Glen and Holliday Grainger:

A Forbidden Romance Blooms In First Trailer For My Cousin Rachel

25 January 2017 7:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin indulge in a forbidden romance in the stirring first trailer for Roger Michell’s period drama, My Cousin Rachel.

Set against a suitably shrill cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” the snippet above introduces us to Claflin’s dashing Englishman Philip, who seeks out his distant cousin Rachel to enact revenge. Those feelings of contempt and loathing soon dissolve before his very eyes when he comes into contact with Rachel Weisz’s titular, alluring lead, sparking a forbidden romance that ruffles feathers all across the West County. Lifting inspiration from Daphne du Maurier’s novel of the same name, there’s a touch of Jane Austin to be found in My Cousin Rachel. Couple this with the gothic aesthetic and Michell may well have a sleeper hit on his hands.

Here’s the official logline:

Author: David Sztypuljak

With Denial in cinemas this week starring the fabulous Rachel Weisz as Professor Deborah E. Lipstadt it comes as no surprise that Fox Searchlight have released the first UK poster & trailer for My Cousin Rachel starring Weisz and her co-star Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games). For anyone unsure, this is most definitely not a sequel to the 1992 movie My Cousin Vinny starring Joe PesciRalph Macchio and Marisa Tomei… as nice as that would be!

The movie is an adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s (author of Rebecca, The Birds) acclaimed novel of the same name and is helmed by Notting Hill  / Morning Glory director Roger Michell.

Rachel Weisz & Sam Claflin Play Wicked Games In First Trailer For ‘My Cousin Rachel’

25 January 2017 4:59 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

First announced nearly a year-and-a-half ago, we kinda plain forgot about “My Cousin Rachel.” And given that the movie is being released without much fanfare (no festival bow at least), we’re a bit cautious. But frankly, a sweeping period picture starring Rachel Weisz and based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier is sort of my jam, so there will be at least one ticket sold no matter what.
