Dench Joins Cumberbatch In "Richard III"

21 August 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Judi Dench is set to play Cecily, Duchess of York opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role of The BBC's upcoming TV adaptation of Shakespeare's "Richard III".

The telemovie will be part of the second series of "The Hollow Crown," following on from 2012's successful four telemovie adaptations of Shakespeare's historical plays. That series, starring the likes of Jeremy Irons, Tom Hiddleston and Ben Whishaw, adapted "Richard II," "Henry IV Part 1," "Henry IV Part 2" and "Henry V".

"The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses" will adapt the other famed historical tetralogy of Shakespeare - the three parts of "Henry VI" and "Richard III". One difference this time out is that the telemovies will be trilogy with "Henry VI" being shrunk from a three-part play into a two-part telemovie.

Tom Sturridge ("On the Road," "The Boat That Rocked") has been cast as Henry VI in both parts of that production. »

The X Factor has taken battles of the bands to the next level with its latest promotional video based on HBO and Sky Atlantic series Game of Thrones. The Sun reports that the £1m commercial, the most expensive in the series history, used CGI technology and hundreds of extras to give the ITV talent show a Westeros feel. Judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez Versini (takes longer for Monkey to type following her wedding, but its great for the word count), Mel B and Louis Walsh are seen leading armies into battle in a bid to take the X Factor throne. Rallying her troops, Mel B is heard to roar: Things are about to get loud! Sort of puts you in mind of the battle speech from Henry V, doesnt it?

Films paid for almost entirely by a wealthy(ish) benefactor

31 July 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Without the help of some brave investors, or the pockets of their makers, the following films would never have existed...

It's now a fairly common mantra that you'd be a fool to put up all of your own personal money into a feature film. By all means invest, but share the risk, or throw a few quid at Kickstarter.

Paying for the bulk of the negative/hard drive yourself, and leaving your own assets exposed? Utter lunacy.

Not that anyone told this lot...

The Passion Of The Christ Paid for by: Mel Gibson

For some time, Mel Gibson had, alongside his acting roles, been heavily invested in his production company, Icon. As such, he had two significant ways to earn money, and he needed both of them when it came to making The Passion Of The Christ.

This is the kind of film that studios run a mile from. All »

'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' writers talk Caesar, 'Jurassic World,' ...and Shakespeare

11 July 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Before 2011′s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, married screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver’s last screenplay credit was 1997′s The Relic. What a difference a few years make. Today, Rise sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters, with a screenplay that Jaffa and Silver co-penned with Mark Bomback. But Dawn is just the tip of the iceberg. Jaffa and Silver are currently hard at work on Avatar 2 alongside director James Cameron. The writers also worked on next year’s dino-reboot Jurassic World. And they’re credited as screenwriters on Ron Howard’s upcoming Heart of the Sea. »

On a cold night in January, George R.R. Martin sits inside the Jean Cocteau Cinema, a revival theater that he owns in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he has lived since 1979. The Cinema had been showing the first three seasons of HBO's megahit series Game of Thrones, which is based on Martin's still-in-the-works saga A Song of Ice and Fire. After viewing the ninth episode, "Baelor," in which the story's apparent hero, Ned Stark, is unexpectedly beheaded, with the screen falling to black, Martin sits quietly for several moments, »

'Macbeth': Theater Review

5 June 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New York – Kenneth Branagh first made his mark as a screen director with his pared-down yet robust 1989 version of Henry V. His film output since then has ranged with varying success from personal projects like Peter's Friends through further Shakespeare adaptations to giant popcorn odysseys like Thor. This sensational environmental stage production of Macbeth, which Branagh stars in and co-directed with Rob Ashford, is in many ways a logical culmination of that eclectic experience -- a medieval, mystical blockbuster that combines superlative, fuss-free classical theater acting with muscular storytelling, visceral physicality and propulsive rollercoaster pacing.

The Marvel Movie Model: Auteurs Need Not Apply

24 May 2014 3:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the Marvel Movie Model….

Edgar Wright quitting Ant-Man over ‘creative differences’ might be the most predictable cinematic event of 2014.  A lot of people saw this coming, and frankly it’s a bit disappointing.  But let’s be real honest here: Marvel doesn’t want auteurs or unique voices helming their films. They’re not looking for great, passionate directors who will fight to see their particular vision brought to life.   They’re looking for line towing, rank and file directors who play by the rules and fall into line with a single snap of the fingers.  Marvel established a principle behind their creative teams that almost falls into the strategies of sabermetrics highlighted in the movie Moneyball: if you can’t afford (or want to pay) big name talent, you go look for those players that can get on base.

That aptly describes the vast majority of »

Movie Poster of the Week: Orson Welles’ “Othello” and Shakespeare on Film

25 April 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: Us 2014 re-release poster for Othello (Orson Welles, Morocco/Italy, 1952) designed by Dark Star, Paris.

Orson Welles' glorious, noirish, idiosyncratic, benighted Othello opens in New York and Chicago today in a new restoration. And Wednesday, not coincidentally, saw the 450th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth. Shakespeare has been adapted for film since the silent dawn of cinema, so it seems only right and fitting that I should mark this occasion with the best posters for Shakespeare on film through the ages, presented here in chronological order. 

Above: German poster for Hamlet (Svend Gade & Heinz Schall, Germany, 1921).

23 April 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Look, it's Shakespeare's 450th birthday. We at Riot are generally concerned with internet memes and Zac Efron's musculature, but let's give credit where its due: These are real celebs kicking real ass in real Shakesperean roles and no one's worthy. And we can't contain ourselves.  So, here are 10 people kicking thine ass in Shakespearean roles and leaving you in the mortal, pathetic dust. 1. Meryl Streep Serving You Death Sass In "The Taming Of The Shrew'2 Judi Dench With Gunpowder Eyes And A Kevlar Heart In "Twelfth Night" 3. Ralph Fiennes Is A Hotheaded Traitor Bad-ass In "Coriolanus," So Just Deal With It. 4.

Benedict Cumberbatch To Tread The Boards As ‘Hamlet’

27 March 2014 5:54 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Benedict Cumberbatch is to star as Shakespeare’s Hamlet in August 2015.

The Sherlock and Star Trek: Into Darkness  star will play the procrastinating Danish Prince in a twelve week run at the Barbican Theatre, London.

Cumberbatch is no stranger to weighty theatrical roles. He made his West End début in Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler in 2005 and he starred, perhaps most memorably, in Danny Boyle’s production of Frankenstein for the National Theatre, where he alternated the role of creator and creature each night with Johnny Lee Miller.

It’s good to see so many British film and TV actors making the jump to theatre. Jude Law’s recent Henry V was an all round success, and while David Tennant has been treading the boards for years, his recent leading Shakespearean roles for the RSC’s Hamlet and Richard II were hugely popular.

I predict the combination of Cumberbatch, in the height of Sherlock fame, »
