10 Things About... Michael Palin

15 November 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Frequently described as "Britain's nicest man", Michael Palin really has done it all. From playing a singing, cross-dressing lumberjack to travelling Around the World in 80 Days, the star has no plans to stop yet. He's even about to venture further than ever before, as he joins the Clangers' little moon planet as their new narrator.

Palin is a household name in the UK and around the world, thanks to his globetrotting adventures and most prominently his Monty Python fame. But here are some facts you may not know about the comedian...

1. Michael Edward Palin was born in Broomhill, Sheffield on May 5, 1943. He attended Birkdale Preparatory School and had his first acting - and possibly cross-dressing - experience at the age of 5 in a performance of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, in which he played Martha Cratchit... and fell off the stage.

Undeterred by this unfortunate turn of events and despite his extreme stage fright, »

Gay Pride takes a fall

2 November 2014 6:02 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

British critics adored Pride, the comedy-drama based on the true story of the gay Londoners who rallied to support Welsh miners in their confrontation with Margaret Thatcher in 1984, and some were moved to tears.

Audiences in the UK were rather less enthused as the film starring Bill Nighy, Paddy Considine, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton has pocketed a modest $US6.2 million in seven weeks, tracking more like a Made in Dagenham than a Calendar Girls or Billy Elliot.

The reaction seems similar here judging by the Matthew Warchus-directed film.s $522,000 debut on 130 screens, and $595,00 with festival screenings and previews.

Distributor eOne emailed exhibitors this morning asking them to maintain screens in hopes that word-of-mouth will kick in this weekend, particularly among the target audience of mature females.

It was another soft weekend as takings dropped by 9% to $9 million according to Rentrak.s estimates. Year-to-date ticket sales have generated $896 million, »

Broken Contract a near-paperless production

26 October 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Producer Hayden Fortescue believes his action comedy Broken Contract is the first Wa-shot feature to have been shot almost entirely without paper.

Christopher Morris (Offspring, Crownies) plays Max, a down-on-his-luck club owner who hires a hit man for protection after a local gang threatens his livelihood and his family.

Esther Anderson (Siberia, Home and Away) plays the detective who gets involved after Max.s friends and enemies start disappearing.

Fortescue set out to save money by emailing contracts, Oh&S and medical reports and call sheets, and issuing digital invoices and receipts.

During the shoot in Perth in April/May, writer-director James Pentecost used an iPad that held everything he needed . script, schedules, notes and an app that allowed him to pre-plan the set-ups for every scene.

Dispensing with traditional storyboards, he and DoP Ross Metcalf used the app, Hollywood Shot Designer, to figure out when and where every light, »

Actors defend imported actors’ regime

25 September 2014 9:57 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

An Actors Equity national performers committee member has defended the union.s process of vetting imported actors in Australian taxpayer-funded film and TV productions.

Jonathan Mill argues the present policy enables actors to work with international performers while ensuring most lead roles go to Aussies.

Kevin Harrington, a former Npc member, supported Mill, stating, "From my experience on the Npc the committee is more flexible on policy than any other any union in Australia. If we had stuck to policy, Red Dog would not have been made."

Actor Roy Billing reignited the debate on the issue in his op Ed piece for If when he asked Equity to ease the restrictions on foreign actors. Subsequently he called for Equity and the Npc to be taken out of any of that decision-making. Denise Roberts, CEO and principal director of Screenwise Film & TV School for Actors, together with many producers agreed with »

How comment moderation works at Den Of Geek

4 September 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Just a quick note for those of you who post comments at the bottom of our articles...

We've had, for the first time in ages, a spate of having to delete a number of comments on the site of late, and I thought it was probably worth explaining how the moderation of user comments works here. I'm happy to take questions on this via our letters page, or in the comments below (although the letters page is where we tend to give longer responses).

I do want to say this first though: we're really proud of the community here. The vast majority of comments are free of the internet's trademark snark, and there's some really constructive debate that takes place. Furthermore, to be clear, we have no problem with people taking us to task on what we write here. That's one of the points of enabling comments in the first place. »

Spartacus: The Complete Series is the classic tale of Spartacus, the Republic's most infamous rebel who comes alive in the first season of Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

Kyle Patrick Alvarez (whose film C.O.G. premiered in competition at the Sundance festival) is directing for producers Lizzie Friedman, Brent Emery, Brian Geraghty, Karen Lauder and Greg Little.

Down Under Dystopias – ‘The Rover’ And Other Nightmares From The Far Side Of The World

14 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Rover opens in UK cinemas this week, bringing a welcome note of despair and post-meltdown male posturing to our baking hot summer. Featuring a memorable lead performance from Guy Pearce and strong support from Robert Pattinson the film follows in a long tradition of Antipodean sagas involving social decay and dog-eat-dog. To celebrate the latest evolution of this warped branch of their industry, let’s take a petrol-fuelled, sweat-drenched look at some intense offerings from Australia and New Zealand. If you associate these lands with Home And Away and Lord Of The Rings (or maybe even Flight Of The Conchords) prepare yourself for a shock…

Mad Max (1979)

Though the makers distance themselves from him, The Rover bears the hallmarks of tortured avenger Max Rockatansky. Dusty tracks, speeding cars, a broken soul and a total lack of decency – David Michôd’s movie realizes these qualities admirably, but director George Miller »

Meet Brenton Thwaites, the Star of The Giver and Your New Crush

13 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Giver opens this week, and that means it's time to familiarize yourself with the star of the big-screen adaptation. Brenton Thwaites plays Jonas, the young hero of Lois Lowry's famous novel, opposite Jeff Bridges. If you haven't heard of him, you probably didn't catch his run on the Australian soap Home and Away - the same show on which Chris Hemsworth, Isla Fisher, and Guy Pearce got their big breaks. He also turned up in Maleficent this year as Prince Phillip, but when we caught up with him recently, we really just wanted some intel on The Giver. Don't be jealous, but he totally jammed out with The Dude. Popsugar: Did you have any hesitation signing up for an adaptation of such a beloved book? Brenton Thwaites: No, my only concern in the beginning was my age. We worked that out by aging Jonas up a bit from the book. »

All the Questions You Have About The Giver Answered

11 August 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

You may have read Lois Lowry's critically acclaimed book The Giver back in high school, but do you actually remember any of it? The movie adaptation, starring Jeff Bridges and Brenton Thwaites, will be out this Friday, so it's time to brush up - or learn about it for the first time. Here's everything you need to know, and once you're caught up, check out the trailer. Where are we? The Giver is set in a dystopian society in which all people are basically the same. Residents are committed to preserving "sameness," because being different is dangerous. As a result, there is little to no individuality, and everyone is assigned a job that will best serve the community. What if they're not into their job? Then they're "released" from society, which is a mysterious way of saying they're banished. No one really knows what happens outside of the community, »

5 Australian pop-culture imports you should know

Sick of explosion-filled blockbusters and snoozy summer reality TV?

And it’s not just people who write about this stuff for a living: A friend of mine is obsessed with Dance Academy, a teen drama that’s exactly what it sounds like (and is available for streaming on Netflix). Another swears by Australia’s Next Top Model, »

‘Point Break’ remake star Luke Bracey loves quoting the original as much as you do

25 June 2014 6:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Up-and-coming actor Luke Bracey has gotten himself a big break – as in "Point Break." Not only does the 24-year-old Australian actor co-star alongside one-time 007 Pierce Brosnan as he returns to the spy genre later this year for "The November Man," he’s just embarked on one of the most action-packed assignments a rising young star could hope for: the now-iconic role of Johnny Utah in the remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 cult classic. Spinoff Online caught up with Bracey – who began his career in the Australian TV series "Home and Away" and played Cobra Commander in "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" – making the Hollywood red-carpet rounds just days before he was set to start shooting his role as the FBI agent who infiltrates a cadre of thrill-seeking surfers/bank robbers (led in Alcon Entertainment’s remake by Edgar Ramirez). He revealed that the characters once brought to life by Keanu Reeves »
