What If review: Daniel Radcliffe's rom-com with Zoe Kazan

Girls meets When Harry Met Sally in Daniel Radcliffe's latest film What If, a romantic comedy that sees his character Wallace struggle to hide his feelings for pal Chantry (Zoe Kazan).

The film marks a departure for Radcliffe, who in recent years has played a wizard, a widowed lawyer haunted by a woman in black, Allen Ginsberg and a warped version of himself who fires a condom onto Diana Rigg's head in Extras.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Radcliffe confirmed that he recently rejected an approach to reprise his role as Harry Potter for Universal Orlando's theme park, but refused to definitively say "never" about going back to the role.

"I would never say never… the hypothetical thing people come up with is if a book was written one day and the story was continued at an age you were appropriate to do it, »

Frank Miller: 'I love Superman but can't watch a Batman movie'

13 hours ago

Frank Miller has revealed that he "loves" Superman, but is not so fond of Batman films.

The controversial comics legend addressed the commonly held belief that he hates the Man of Steel in an interview about his upcoming Sin City: A Dame to Kill For adaptation.

"The Dark Knight [comic book] series is all from Batman's point of view," Miller told Playboy. "But if you look at Dark Knight 2, you'll see a Superman who's much calmer than the one in the first Dark Knight.

"Batman and Superman are dead opposites. I love Superman. Do I love Batman more? They're not people. They're only lines on paper."

When asked about the poor reception of the Daredevil and Elektra films - two characters he wrote at length - he said: "When people come out with movies about characters I've worked on, I always hate them.

"I have my own ideas about what the characters are like. »

What If review: Daniel Radcliffe gets trapped in the Friend Zone

14 hours ago

Director: Michael Dowse; Screenwriter: Elan Mastai; Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver, Mackenzie Davis, Rafe Spall, Megan Park Running time: 102 mins; Certificate: 15

Can men and women ever be 'just friends'? Director Rob Reiner asked the question in 1989 with When Harry Met Sally and we knew the answer then, just as we do from the very beginning of What If. After all, much of the comedy springs like the sweat of desperation from Daniel Radcliffe's brow as he tries to contain his feelings for Zoe Kazan (aka Ruby Sparks), playing the typically cute, clever but kooky heroine who keeps him dangling.

Wallace (Radcliffe) is a med school dropout, which might imply issues around commitment, except that he's split from his long-term college sweetheart and can't get over it. That is until he claps eyes on cartoonist Chantry (Kazan) at one of those cosy, dimly lit parties that only exist »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For review: Was it worth the wait?

16 hours ago

Directors: Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez; Screenwriter: Frank Miller; Starring: Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Rosario Dawson, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Dennis Haysbert, Lady Gaga, Christopher Lloyd; Running time: 102 mins; Certificate: 18

Nine years after Sin City amazed and enthralled us, the long-awaited sequel has finally landed. Gone is the freshness of the stunning comic book aesthetic. Absent is the narrative cohesion and zest that bound the disparate tales together in one anthology. Yet the class of the impressive cast and the immersive film noir atmosphere just about sustains our interest in a film that's most striking visual effect is the hair on Bruce Willis's head.

Many characters from the original reappear in A Dame to Kill For, including Mickey Rourke's Marv, Jessica Alba's Nancy and Willis's hirsute detective John Hartigan. A re-watch of Sin City is advisable to untangle some of the timelines, »

Barry Norman: 'Robin Williams was addicted to saccharine sentimentality'

19 August 2014 11:18 AM, PDT

Film critic Barry Norman has spoken about Robin Williams's career, saying that he had an "addiction" to "saccharine, tooth-rotting sentimentality".

The 80-year-old added that this would have an impact on the late actor's career legacy.

Writing in the Radio Times, Norman said that Williams's talent "could sometimes be spread so thinly".

The columnist also stated that Williams's CV featured a "plenitude" of bad films.

"It's hard to know what to make of Robin Williams," wrote Norman. "Admiration is called for, but also sadness, not just for his tragic death but for an enormous talent which, if not exactly unfulfilled, could sometimes be spread so thinly as to be almost invisible."

On Williams's "bad" movies, Norman added: "Every actor makes bad films occasionally but what was remarkable about Williams was not that he was so good in the good ones but that he was so very bad in the bad ones. »

Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone linked to Vampire Chronicles

19 August 2014 8:39 AM, PDT

Josh Boone has been linked with Universal Pictures' Vampire Chronicles reboot.

The Fault in Our Stars director is believed to be in line for a film starring Anne Rice's Lestat de Lioncourt, reports The Wrap.

The deal also includes the adapted screenplay for The Tale of the Body Thief, written by the author's son Christopher Rice.

The first film will reportedly be based on The Vampire Lestat, rather than Rice's first and most famous Vampire Chronicles novel Interview with the Vampire.

The latter was released as a film in 1994 starring Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst and Tom Cruise as Lestat.

A Queen of the Damned movie was released in 2002 starring Aaliyah and Stuart Townsend as Lestat.

Star Wars 7 has less CGI and more practical effects, says Rian Johnson

19 August 2014 7:52 AM, PDT

Rian Johnson has promised that Star Wars Episode VII will feature less CGI and more practical effects.

The director, who has been announced to follow Jj Abrams for Disney's Episode VIII, has said that there will be a move away from the controversial reliance on computer effects in George Lucas's prequel trilogy.

"They're doing so much practical building for this one," Johnson told the Girls in Hoodies podcast. "It's awesome.

"I think people are coming back around to [practical effects]. It feels like there is sort of that gravity pulling us back toward it.

"I think that more and more people are hitting kind of a critical mass in terms of the CG-driven action scene lending itself to a very specific type of action scene, where physics go out the window and it becomes so big, so quick.

He continued. "I probably sound like a grumpy old man talking about it. »
