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 »

Michael Douglas channels his inner bad guy for Jean Baptiste Léonetti's Beyond The Reach, which sees him as a high rolling corporate shark embarking on a deadly game of cat and mouse with his impoverished tour guide (Jeremy Irvine) during a hunting trip in the Mojave Desert. Based on the Robb White novel Deathwatch, the below trailer promises an incredibly tense two hander, with Douglas on top form as the calculating villain. Check it out below. Released: 17th April (U.S.)/ 17th July (Irl/U.K.) »

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. »

Beyond the Reach gives Michael Douglas a high-powered rifle and an insane sense of entitlement — not a good combination. Douglas plays a rich guy who hires a desert local (Jeremy Irvine) to lead him on a hunting expedition. But when Douglas shoots the wrong target, things go bad really quick. Soon Douglas is hunting Irvine, but the […]

Roadside Attractions will release Jean-Baptiste Léonetti's latest film "Beyond the Reach," a deadly thriller that sees Douglas cast as a corporate shark desperate to salvage his reputation after an accident during a desert hunting trip threatens to dismantle his fame and fortune. Jeremy Irvine ("War Horse") co-stars as his wise hunting guide who suddenly finds himself Douglas' next target. As the trailer indicates, the brutal desert setting serves up a minefield of dangers that Irvine must navigate in order to save himself and bring Douglas to justice. This nail-biting premise guarantees an electrifying face-off that the two leads carefully build up to in this isolated cat-and-mouse game. "Beyond the Reach" will be released in theaters and On Demand starting April 17. Check out the trailer below: Read More: Liongsate/Roadside Acquires Michael Douglas' Desert Drama 'The Reach' »

It’s been a while since Michael Douglas turned in a performance to rival that of his greatest character, Wall Street‘s Gordon Gekko. In the last decade, the once-solid actor has steered clear of sharp, probing movies and invested in more palatable fare such as And So It Goes and Last Vegas. That period of safe moves appears to over – for a brief time, anyway – judging by this first trailer for his next effort, Beyond The Reach.
The film made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and since then it seems to have hidden from public view. Until today that is, as Yahoo! Movies has dropped the first preview, which strikes a chord somewhere between thriller and survival horror.
In the lead role, Douglas plays a ruthless businessman who ventures out into the Mojave Desert for an exclusive hunting excursion. All goes as one would expect. »

Every year at the Toronto International Film Festival, there are a handful of films out of the hundreds selected to screen that just completely pass us by. Sometimes those pictures turn out to be hidden gems, while others are overlooked for a reason. However, in the case of "Beyond The Reach" (originally titled "The Reach"), maybe it didn't even need to screen at Tiff at all. It's every bit a b-movie thriller, not a prestige pic, but that doesn't matter as it looks like a decent slice of sun-baked fun. Michael Douglas and Jeremy Irvine star in the movie, directed by Jean-Baptiste Léonetti ("Carré blanc"), that centers on a massively successful businessman and expert tracker who goes on a hunting trip out in the Mojave Desert with a young guide. However, when the millionaire accidentally kills someone, the kid becomes his next target. A simple premise, and maybe not the brainiest the flick, »

Warner Bros previously acquired rights in Germany while a Us deal is understood to be in the works.
Currently in post-production, Stonewall recreates the events that culminated in the riots outside the Stonewall Inn, Greenwich Village, in June 1969. The events are considered by many as a turning point in the gay rights movement.

Title: The World Made Straight Director: David Burris Starring: Noah Wyle, Jeremy Irvine, Minka Kelly, Haley Joel Osment and Adelaide Clemens The tantalizing and superficial emotional and physical landscapes that are initially introduced in any story makes audiences immediately feel as though they truly know all of the emotions, motivations and ideas of all the characters involved. But ‘The World Made Straight,’ the new drama that marks the feature film directorial debut of ‘Survivor’ producer David Burris, and is adapted from Ron Rash’s 2006 novel of the same name, is the perfect example of how initial appearances aren’t always an adequate representation of how people and situations truly are overall.

Civil War on Drugs: Burris Turns Southern Gothic into Southern Comfort
Though its title sounds something you’d expect to grace a Christian propaganda film starring Kirk Cameron, the directorial debut by producer David Burris, The World Made Straight, gets drunk on its own solemn resonance and turns its intriguing elements of tragic fate and warps them into eye crossed foolishness. Painstakingly earnest Jeremy Irvine, struggling still to make good on the boost afforded his visibility after 2011’s War Horse, headlines a curious cast assembled atop an organism featuring a number of exciting elements. But this is rather complicated material and is based on Ron Rash’s 2006 novel. A higher degree of finesse could have teased out the tale’s noir roots, as clearly it’s inspired by any number of Elizabethan or Greek tragedy sources, whereby bloodlines are irrevocably cursed by misdeeds of the forefathers.
