Doctor Who: 10 Fictional Characters The Doctor Should Meet

5 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

Series 8’s Robot of Sherwood caused some controversy by having fictional character Robin Hood turn out to be real and now Santa Claus himself is paying a visit to the Christmas Special. How can this be? Some fans have short memories as there is definite form for this.

The Doctor has dallied with fictional characters before, after all, from Cyrano De Bergerac and Gulliver in The Land of Fiction to Pauline Fowler and the Mitchell brothers in Dimensions in Time, and let’s not forget the sly reference to Bernard Quatermass in Remembrance of the Daleks.

Now the Doctor Who world isn’t ours, unless our world really did have Mondas pop by in 1986 and no one noticed. No Prime Minister was killed by Slitheen and the Us President wasn’t vaporised by the Master. The Whoniverse is fictional so is there really any reason why fictional characters can »

Goalpost finds lovers for Holding The Man

4 September 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Anthony Lapaglia, Guy Pearce and Kerry Fox are to star alongside upcoming Australian pair Ryan Corr and Craig Stott when Candy director Neil Armfield begins filming Holding The Man in Melbourne next week.

Corr and Stott play Timothy Conigrave and John Caleo in this adaptation of a real-life boy-boy love story, while the other three – and also Camilla Ah Kin – play their parents.

“We would have done 400 auditions in six months for those two roles,” producer Kylie du Fresne told ScreenDaily.

It was a challenge in part because the actors are aged 16 and at school at the beginning of the film and in their 30s with a lot of life experience by the end. Sparks also had to fly between them. The creative team were open to casting four people but it was not their ideal.

Corr had to be released from the cast of Cyrano de Bergerac by the Sydney Theatre Company in order to accept »

Mistresses Season 2 Finale Recap: Bride Goeth Before a Fall

1 September 2014 8:29 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: If you have yet to watch the Mistresses Season 2 finale, please skip this recap and head to another TVLine story. Everyone else, dive right in — the water is perfect!

Her long white gown flutters in the Pacific Ocean breeze. She runs to him, reckless and breathless, and God (or perhaps a really astute stylist) intervenes, making his tattered old t-shirt magically disappear, revealing a torso smoother and sturdier than the Quartz kitchen countertop of your home-design fantasies.

By The Sword

Warning; this post is long... if you watch all the links, you'll have an hour of entertainment.

When I was 10, my school screened a 16 mm print of the The Mark of Zorro - 1940 version, starring the dashing Tyrone Power. The clash of steel, the dynamic yet graceful athleticism of the hero as he righted wrongs, attracted me, as it did many boys of my age... I wanna do that. Luckily my next school offered fencing lessons from an instructor at the nearby Sandhurst Military Academy, and my inner Basil Rathbone was set free to ultimately Captain the school team. I saw every sword fighting movie I could and still do. Yet the only duel I have ever filmed had to be shot in 3 hours... The history of the genre could fill many volumes, but here is a short introduction to Sword Cinema.

Comic-Con: Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele and Director/Producer Peter Atencio Talk Key And Peele Season 4, Animated Spinoffs, Fargo, and More

26 July 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele may well be the best damn comedy team working today.  After honing their skills on MadTV for five seasons, the duo struck out on their own to create Key and Peele.  Within months of premiering, the series produced a viral hit so popular that President Barrack Obama felt the need to comment on it publicly. Three seasons, (with Key and Peele Season 4 coming this fall), two Emmy nominations, and one Peabody Award later, these funnymen are just getting started. Now they’re branching out into dramedy with turns on Fargo, features with Judd Apatow and even animated spin-offs of their meta-textual YouTube characters Vandaveon and Mike.  Yesterday afternoon, Collider sat down with the comedians and their Director/Producer Peter Atencio at Comic-Con to discuss all of the above.  And Cyrano de Bergerac by way of Cholo culture.  Read on for the full interview and some video snippets. »

Lavie unveils Current Love of My Life

14 July 2014 1:22 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Zero Motivation director planning Brooklyn-set comedy.

Talya Lavie, director of local box office hit Zero Motivation, is developing a comedy about an illegal Israeli immigrant musician in New York working a Hebrew teacher with a wealthy, Brooklyn, ultra-orthodox Jewish family.

Entitled The Current Love of My Life, it is a contemporary adaptation of a story by 19th century author Sholem Aleichem, whose work also inspired Fiddler on the Roof.

Lavie unveiled the film at the final pitching session of the script development Jerusalem Film Lab on Friday.

In her contemporary re-telling, penniless Israeli musician Bini, who is living in New York illegally, is hired by a wealthy ultra-orthodox Jewish family in Brooklyn to teach their youngest son Hebrew on the eve of his marriage to a girl from an important religious family in Jerusalem.

Too lazy to study the language or reply to his future wife’s Hebrew emails, the son asks Bini to keep up the »

Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche make love and war in 'Words and Pictures' -- Exclusive Video

15 May 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In an age where romantic-comedies are practically extinct, Words and Pictures stands out as throwback to the kind of movie that audiences used to love. Clive Owen plays Jack Marcus, an English teacher at an elite private school who’s maybe overstayed his welcome. Once, he was a celebrated writer in his own right, but now, he’s a grump who thinks very little of the new generation of in-the-box students. Nudging him out of his rut is Dina Delsanto, the school’s new art teacher played by Juliette Binoche. A renowned artist who’s suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, Dina »

Before 'Need for Speed,' Aaron Paul proved he would do 'Whatever It Takes' to win our hearts

16 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Step aside, Tobey Marshall — Floyd is the Aaron Paul character that revs me up.

Though the Need for Speed star is more famous these days for Breaking out variations on the word “bitch” and playing the Dice Game on The Price Is Right, in my heart he’ll always be the teenage no-goodnik from 2000′s Whatever It Takes.

Witness Paul in all his millennial, Wolverine-haired glory:

What that promo didn’t make clear is that Floyd was a no-holds-barred weirdo with semi-pyromaniacal tendencies who’s obsessed with causing capital “m” Mayhem like his hero Virgil Doolittle (eventually played by David Koechner). To do so, »

French location business remains upbeat

17 February 2014 5:02 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Some 100 locations agencies attended the Ile de France Film Commission’s location expo in Paris last week.

 In spite of the recent alarm bells over French film production levels for the coming year, the mood at the Ile de France Film Commission’s annual location salon last week was quietly optimistic.

Some one hundred exhibitors attended the event unfolding over two days (Feb 13-14) at the City of Fashion and Design on the banks of the River Seine in Eastern Paris.

They ranged from historic sites such as the Chateau de Neuville, backdrop to classics such as Cyrano de Bergerac and Dangerous Liaisons, to the region of the Nord Pas de Calais, which hosted the shoots of Adele; Chapters 1 & 2 (aka Blue is the Warmest Colour) and the TV series The Tunnel.

Although French productions levels are expected to fall in 2014, the impact of changes to tax incentives for local productions and improvements to the Tax Rebate for International »

Tmg’s Herbert Kloiber Feted With France’s Legion of Honor

10 February 2014 10:50 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Herbert Kloiber, chairman of Germany’s Tele Munchen Group, has been named a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor of France.

The order goes to one of French cinema’s staunchest supporters. At Berlin, for instance, Tmg’s Concorde, also Lionsgate’s Teutonic distributor, has sealed German-speaking territory rights to the Pathe-produced and sold “Sufragette,” with Carey Mulligan. It also pre-bought Pathe’s “Beauty and the Beast,” “La Famille Belier,” from helmer Eric Lartigau (“The Big Picture”) and produced by Vendome’s Philippe Rousselet and Stephane Celerier’s Mars Films, and Rose Bosch’s Gaumont’s ’ “A Summer in Provence,” with Jean Reno.

Concorde releases French hit “Me, Myself and Mum” in the spring.

Multiple film industry figures have become Chevaliers of the Order of Arts and Letters: Kloiber was bestowed with that honor in 1978. The Legion of Honor, an order established by Napoleon in 1802, is rarely won by foreign film figures, »
