Berlin Film Review: ‘Cinderella’

13 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Disney’s new live-action “Cinderella,” four mice are ballooned into elegant white horses, two lizards are forced to serve as makeshift footmen, and an oblivious old goose gets zapped into driving a pumpkin carriage. But as the American Humane Assn. can attest, no animals were harmed in the making of this delightful if overly safe update of the gold-standard toon classic. More importantly, the underlying property emerges untarnished, as director Kenneth Branagh reverently reimagines Charles Perrault’s classic fairy tale for a new generation the world over, spelling countless opportunities to exploit fresh interest in the story throughout the Disney universe.

The latest in a trend to rework the most precious treasures in the Mouse House vault, “Cinderella” is by far the studio’s most calculated retelling yet, to the extent that those who know the toon by heart may find Chris Weitz’s serviceable script a wee bit dull. »

WWE 2K15: Hall Of Pain Dlc To Be Released February 17

2K Sports

WWE and 2K Sports are not hanging around as they have already announced the release date for the second downloadable showcase mode.

Hall Of Pain, which depicts all of Mark Henry’s biggest matches, will be released for all platforms on February 17.

Hop pays homage to the World’s Strongest Man, who has been in the WWE since 1996, as it allows you to play some of his most memorable matches against the likes of: The Big Show, Kane, Jey Uso, Jimmy Uso, Sheamus, The Great Khali, Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan and Ryback.

Most of these matches took place on SmackDown but 2K have really spoilt us by charging us more money for the privilege to play Henry v Ryback at WrestleMania Xxix.

We are not worthy.

Even though they arguably should considering the price of the game itself, 2K sports doesn’t give such additional content away for free. »

Geraldine McEwan in The Magdalene Sisters

Geraldine McEwan, best known for playing Agatha Christie's Miss Marple in a long-running television series, has died at the age of 82. In her 57 year career the much-admired character actress also appeared in films as diverse as Henry V, The Magdalene Sisters and Vanity Fair. She provided the voice of Miss Thipp in Wallace and Grommit film The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit and also appeared alongside Kevin Costner and Sean Conner in Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves.

An awkward child who found refuge in the theatre and quickly made an impression with her acting talents, the versatile McEwan had no formal training but soon progressed through Stratford and Broadway before finding her way into film. She was an avowed left-winger and was rumoured to have turned down the offer of being made a dame. She died peacefully following a stroke and is survived by her two. »

Why Sam Goldwyn Jr Was Important

10 January 2015 2:45 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

His dad was one of Hollywood’s founding fathers. If there is something that Samuel Goldwyn Jr should be remembered for following his death on Friday night, it’s this, according to Tom Rothman: “For the 20 or so years before Disney put money in Miramax or we started Fox Searchlight with NewsCorp money and other studios got in the game, the independent film business really began with Sam in the late 70s.” Rothman, a lawyer in New York who repped Jim Jarmusch when he made the deal with Goldwyn Jr for Stranger Than Paradise, was hired by Goldwyn Jr to become president of The Goldwyn Company before moving on to Fox where he became the first president of Fox Searchlight.

“People forget what a seminal figure Sam was, and how many filmmakers broke through because of him,” Rothman said. “There was Kenneth Branagh, Anthony Minghella, Ang Lee, David Lynch and John Sayles. »

Charles Dance Looks Back at His Showbiz Start

2 January 2015 12:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Awards season contender “The Imitation Game” is the latest opportunity for esteemed stage, TV and film thesp Charles Dance to make malevolence look utterly polished and tasteful. The Brit made his proper stage debut 40 years ago with the Royal Shakespeare Company, after sharing music hall stages with several English vaudeville greats.

In 1976, you were touring America with the Royal Shakespeare Company and went on for Alan Howard in Brooklyn.

I was doing supporting roles in productions such as “Henry IV” and “Henry V” and Ben Kingsley’s “Hamlet” and was the understudy for Alan. I got the call at 4 in the afternoon that Alan had taken ill and I’d be performing (in “Henry V”) in his place. It scared the shit out of me.

How’d that turn out?

I got into the “Once more unto the breach” speech — the one everyone knows — and I went stone dead in the middle of it. »
