New Trailer For Pan Sails Online

16 July 2015 1:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

"What an eccentric performance," observed King Arthur of Tim The Enchanter in Monty Python And The Holy Grail. But Tim, it turns out, is positively subdued compared to the riot of colour and theatrical hamming on display in Joe Wright's incoming Pan. Second star to the right and straight on til morning is the address for Neverland, but you don't need to go that far to see the new trailer. Look, it's right here!As you'll have seen from that, Wright has gone all out for fantasy spectacle, and the trailer editors are clearly much enamoured of his flying ships. Levi Miller is Peter Pan before we meet him in Jm Barrie's classic tale (for this be a prequel, my lads), and Huge Ackman is the dread pirate Blackbeard: an important player in the film's other origin story for Garrett Hedlund's Captain Hook.Peter is a wartime orphan »

Forbidden Empire – The Review

19 May 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the grand tradition of Russian fantasy films comes a new version of the supernatural legend of The Viy, written by Nicolai Gogol and previously filmed several times, most memorably by Mario Bava as one of the tales in Black Sabbath, (easily my favorite due to the participation of Boris Karloff.).

In Forbidden Empire, a young English cartographer Jonathan Green (Jason Flemyng) takes to the road after being chased out of the house by his lovers Father, played by Charles Dance, after being caught in bed with her.

Looking very much like a Terry Gilliam movie, with the frame over crowded with bizarre machinery, filthy looking characters in period costume (set in the 18th century) and lots of cgi monsters, Forbidden Empire is a beautiful film to behold and more than a little disjointed and episodic.

But like classic Russian fantasy films of the past such as Sword and the Dragon, »

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell episode 1 review: The Friends Of English Magic

17 May 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

BBC One fantasy drama Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is a marvel, from its cast to its magnificent world-building…

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 The Friends Of English Magic

If, like members of the fusty York Society Of Magicians, you needed proof that magic has been restored to England, that episode was it. Forget bringing half a hundred statues to life, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell has pulled off an even unlikelier feat: bringing quality grown-up fantasy to UK television.

Susanna Clarke’s source novel was a canny choice for the task. Its Regency setting plays to the BBC’s period drama strengths and grounds the seven-part series in a recognisable context for any viewers who might ordinarily run a mile at the word ‘faerie’.

Not that Marc Warren’s chilling Gentleman (the sinister being in the Liberace wig and Norman Lamont eyebrows who showed up towards the end of tonight’s episode »

Daily | Cannes 2015 | Matteo Garrone’s Tale Of Tales

14 May 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Lurid, lush, and ludicrous," Matteo Garrone's Tale of Tales with Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones and John C. Reilly "works from Giambattista Basile’s 17th century collection of fairy tales of the same name," notes Blake Williams. David Jenkins suggests it's "a gaudy, bawdy descendent to Pier Paolo Pasolini’s trilogy of life." And the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw sees traces of Walerian Borowczyk’s Immoral Tales. "But there’s also a bit of John Boorman’s Excalibur, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blackadder, The Company of Wolves, the Tenniel illustrations for Alice in Wonderland… and Shrek." We've got more reviews and clips. » - David Hudson »

The Voice Top 5 Performance Recap: No Place Like Home(town Visits)

11 May 2015 7:16 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I hope you checked your cynicism at the door while watching The Voice semifinals, which featured the Top 5 contestants’ visits to their hometowns.

If you didn’t, you might’ve had horribly unkind responses at inopportune moments — like, for example, involuntarily gagging at a particularly unfortunate Voice-themed pizza presented to Joshua Davis on his return to Traverse City, Mich., or wondering “How many industry connections does one contestant need?” after Naomi Judd and Big & Rich crashed Meghan Linsey’s return trip to Nashville. (Quick poll: Will her A-list connections hurt or help Meghan with voters?)

Simon Pegg Has Absolute Power In Trailer For Absolutely Anything

3 May 2015 5:49 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Considering his previous credits include Monty Python's Life of Brian and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it's no surprise that Terry Jones' latest effort, Absolutely Anything, promises to be a supremely silly of very British comedy. The first trailer sets up the premise perfectly, with a group of aliens (voiced by Jones and the rest of Monty Python) testing the capacity for good and evil in humanity by granting the power to do absolutely anything to a cynical teacher Neil (Simon Pegg). Of course, Neil wields this power in selfish ways, including giving himself the perfect body, immense success, and granting his the power of speech to his dog (voiced by Robin Williams in one of his final roles). The main meat of the story is thankfully kept under warps, and hopefully it remains there until the movie hits in a few months time, because this promises to »

Absolutely Anything Trailer Gives Simon Pegg the Power

3 May 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate UK has released the first official trailer for Terry Jones' (Life of Brian, Monty Python and the Holy Grail) new sci-fi comedy Almost Anything. The film stars Simon Pegg as Neil Clarke, a cynical school teacher who is granted the power to do anything as a part of an alien examination to judge the good and evil in humanity. Clarke uses his abilities in a number of silly and selfish ways including spying on his attractive neighbor (Kate Beckinsale), giving himself ripped abs, and granting his dog the power of speech, voiced by Robin Williams in one of his final roles. Absolutely Anything reunites Jones with his Monty Python colleagues John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and Michael Palin for the first time since 1983's The Meaning of Life. The comedic legends lend their voices to the power-hungry aliens who judge Pegg's character from space, determined to end »

Watch: First Trailer For 'Absolutely Anything' With Simon Pegg, The Voices Of Monty Python Members & Robin Williams

3 May 2015 5:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Monty Python fans have a few treats to celebrate this year. At the recent Tribeca Film Festival, there was a three-day celebration of the iconic comedy troupe, including a 40th anniversary screening of "Monty Python And The Holy Grail," with all the living members in attendance. Later this summer, their voices will be heard in the Simon Pegg-led comedy "Absolutely Anything," along with the late Robin Williams, and the first trailer is here. Read More: Monty Python Project 'Absolutely Anything' Adds Benedict Cumberbatch And Gemma Arterton Basically running with the same premise as "Bruce Almighty," the story follows a disillusioned schoolteacher who finds himself imbued with the power to make anything happen, thanks to some aliens who watch everything unfold from space. And so the hapless man does everything from making his dog talk to making his dog's poop pick itself up, all while giving himself a bigger penis. »

Celebrating 40 Years of Monty Python and the Holy Grail

26 April 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

40 years ago, the British comedy sextet Monty Python released the hilarous Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Decades later, the film is still considered a comedy classic. Cinelinx looks back at the making of one of the great film parodies. It’s being released in certain theaters for special showings this week.

They were something completely different. When Monty Python’s Flying Circus debuted on BBC TV in 1969, they were unlike anything ever seen before and they became the comedy darlings of Britain. But it wasn’t until 1975—and the release of their second film Monty Python and the Holy Grail—that they made it big in America and became an international sensation.

 By 1975, the Monty Python comedy troupe—comprised of John Cleese, Terry Jones, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam—had already finished their legendary run on the TV show Monty Python’s Flying Circus and »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Live Performances Heat Up Tribeca Film Festival Screenings

15 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Generally, a film festival is a place to watch, well, films. But some of the hottest tickets at the 2015 Tribeca Fest are likely to be for events that feature a live performance as well as a screening.

“We’re New York,” says Tribeca Film Festival programming director Genna Terranova. “We have theater, we have comedy, we have music, we have everything. The idea of combining all these wonderful arts that New York celebrates throughout the year into events with cinema only felt natural.”

An April 22 screening will remind viewers that in the silent film era, live music was a big part of the attraction for audiences. Harold Lloyd’s 1928 silent comedy “Speedy,” about a dedicated Yankees fan, will get a new score by DJ Z-Trip, who will perform it live.
