When I heard The Woman in Black: Angel of Death was being made, I was instantly curious. How could you continue this particular story while managing to keep the scares fresh and the story exciting? There's always the case that the sequel wouldn't live up to the original, yeah, but I was just curious as to where they would take this tormented lady in black.
Well, what I got left me with a shrug -- The Woman in Black 2 has terrific cinematography, striking set design and solid acting from all involved - and even the setting and premise of this story show promise - but unfortunately, this »
Roland Emmerich is entering the awards season fray once more. The filmmaker behind such blockbusters as "The Day After Tomorrow" and "Independence Day" attempted to make a smaller, more serious film with 2011's "Anonymous." That Shakespearean era tale was touted as a possible awards player before it debuted at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival to mostly negative reviews. Any hopes for prestige recognition were quickly dashed. Now, after segueing into more familiar territory with "White House Down," Emmerich is returning with a slightly more personal tale, "Stonewall." Roadside Attractions announced today it had acquired the period drama for a release later this Fall (which pretty much means at least a Toronto debut). "Stonewall" is a fictional drama set around the real events that took place at the Stonewall Inn in New York City during 1969. The Stonewall Riots found the gay community fighting back in a series of violent protests after »

If you ever wondered what would happen if Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret went out for a night on the town and got into all kinds of comical trouble, then you’ll want to check out the latest film by director Julian Jarrold. A Royal Night Out follows the young Queen and her sister as they get a one night leave from Buckingham Palace to celebrate with the common folk in London. The film features the talent Sarah Gadon, Bel Powley, Emily Watson, Rupert Everett, and Jack Reynor. Although the film hit some casting hiccups along the way, with people like Dakota Fanning and Jeremy Irvine having been attached, and unattached, to the project at various filming points, this talented cast promises to be a hoot.
While there’s no word as to whether A Royal Night Out will be coming to North American cinemas, »

A movie that for a long time seemed stuck in development with folks like Dakota Fanning, Juno Temple, Olivia Williams, Paddy Considine, and Jeremy Irvine attached at various points, "A Royal Night Out" eventually rolled in front of cameras with a no less promising ensemble of actors. And the result looks like a pretty frothy little period piece that's a bit of spirited fun. Julian Jarrold ("Kinky Boots," "Becoming Jane," "Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1974") directs Sarah Gadon, Bel Powley, Emily Watson, Rupert Everett, and Jack Reynor in this comedy that takes place just at the close of World War II, and follows the teenage Princess Margaret and the future queen of England, Elizabeth II as they are granted one night from Buckingham Palace to join a celebrating London. And of course, comedic misadventure follows as they step out of the royal world they've always known »

Sometimes, a performance can seem too precise to be simply the product of an actor’s imagination, or as just a result of fine writing on the page. When an accent or a quirk appears too specific to just simply have been invented, chances are it was probably found somewhere else.
There have been some notable and well-covered examples over the years of actors using real people as the basis for performances; Orson Welles modelled Citizen Kane’s titular newspaper baron on actual newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst, Dustin Hoffman took major inspiration from savant Kim Peek to play the autistic title character in Rain Man, and Johnny Depp channelled Keith Richards for Jack Sparrow.
Of course, you already know about those. This list is about ten more recent examples, with one rule: these have to be unofficial ‘interpretations’ – a cast member playing a younger or older version of »

This summer we'll see Michael Douglas in Marvel mode as he has a co-starring role in Ant-Man alongside Paul Rudd. But before then, Douglas is getting a little dark with a thriller called Beyond the Reach. In what is essentially a more campy adaptation of The Most Dangerous Game, the film follows an upscale loan shark who is taking in the Mojave Desert with a little hunt. But when his young guide (Jeremy Irvine) is surprising by his human-hunting game, he ends up being the next target, with nowhere to run but deeper into the scorching, dry wasteland. This looks like an awesome B-movie right on par with the first Taken. Here's the first trailer for Jean-Baptiste Léonetti's Beyond the Reach, originally from Yahoo: Beyond the Reach is directed by French filmmaker Jean-Baptiste Léonetti and written by Stephen Susco (The Grudge), based on the book Deathwatch by Robb White. »
