The Face of an Angel review: 'Foxy Knoxy' by proxy

7 hours ago

Director: Michael Winterbottom; Screenwriter: Paul Viragh; Starring: Daniel Brühl, Kate Beckinsale, Cara Delevingne; Running time: 101 mins; Certificate: 15

Closely inspired by the events surrounding the murder of British student Meredith Kercher in 2007 and the media circus that ensued, The Face of an Angel embarks on a noble quest to remind us that at the core of this garish spectacle is a victim who lost her life. Unfortunately, given the fascinating subject matter, the aims of Michael Winterbottom's film are one of its few commendable aspects.

The key themes are well introduced early on, particularly amid the discussions between journalists covering the trial of a 'Foxy Knoxy' type murder suspect. Parts of the media are increasingly obsessed with reporting on the details of her hair and clothing choices rather than events pertaining to the murder, thus creating a sad parallel with the real events that transpired. As Daniel Brühl's filmmaker Thomas points out, »

Blade Runner 2: Sean Young says she won't be back as Rachael

8 hours ago

Sean Young has said that she does not expect to be back for the Blade Runner sequel.

Young starred as Rachael opposite Harrison Ford in the 1982 sci-fi film, which was directed by Ridley Scott.

The Blade Runner follow-up is currently in the works, with Scott returning as producer and Prisoners filmmaker Dennis Villeneuve directing.

Downplaying the likelihood of her appearing in the project, she told The Guardian: "I saw Ridley a month ago, and not a peep was uttered from his mouth about it, and so I left it alone."

Ford has been confirmed to be reprising his role as Deckard.

The original Blade Runner experienced a turbulent production and under-performed at the box office on its initial release, but the movie gained a cult following thanks to its Director's and Final Cut editions.

It was based on Philip K Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.

Seventh Son review: Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges lead a fantasy flop

10 hours ago

Director: Sergei Bodrov; Screenwriter: Chris Weitz; Starring: Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, Kit Harington, Alicia Vikander; Running time: 102 mins; Certificate: 12A

It's been a rocky year for Oscar winners embracing roles in fantasy blockbusters. Eddie Redmayne delivered a pungent ham and cheese performance in The Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending, while Julianne Moore turns it up to 11 for her role as an evil witch in this week's Seventh Son.

Moore was years away from even setting foot on the set of Still Alice when she made Seventh Son (it's been trapped in post-production hell for a while), but it does make you wonder if there's some truth to the myth that Oscar winners seem destined for an immediate career stumble. Moore at least seems to be having fun with her role as Seventh Son's Mother Malkin. To say she's chewing the scenery would be a slight misnomer seeing as so »

Downton Abbey will end on Christmas Day this year after series six finishes - but we might not have seen the last of the Crawley family.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference to announce the show's end, Downton executive producer and Carnival Films managing director Gareth Neame revealed that a feature film based on the hit ITV show is being considered.
