Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Working Title producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, whose latest hit is Edgar Wright’s wheel-and-disc-spinning breakout “Baby Driver” (June 28, Sony), which has tracked $64 million worldwide to date.

Bottom Line: This brainy duo with plummy British accents have been turning out a consistent slate of smart global hits since the ’80s. The London-based co-chairmen of Working Title boast the best taste in the business. They chase mainstream quality fare. That’s their gig. But even so over the years, partnering with Universal Pictures, with freedom to greenlight movies up to $35 million, their films have grossed an impressive almost $7 billion dollars worldwide.

Career Peaks: From the start, Working Title founder Tim Bevan gravitated to local stories with global potential like “My Beautiful Laundrette,” Stephen Frears’ searing »

Great Job, Internet!: Kumail Nanjiani has a very nice story for you

15 June 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Kumail Nanjiani is having a banner year. Not only is he a Silicon Valley highlight with exciting projects on the horizon, he’s also the co-writer and star of an acclaimed new romantic comedy, The Big Sick (which we loved). In the wake of this success, Nanjiani took on a moment on Twitter last night to reflect on his favorite childhood movie and how he came to revisit it upon the release of The Big Sick.

It’s a beautiful, affirming story that serves as a symbol of the role art can serve in our lives, the ways in which a single movie/song/book can come to shape our sensibilities and provide an emotional resonance that ripples throughout adulthood.

For Nanjiani, it was writer Richard Curtis’ 1994 comedy Four Weddings And A Funeral, which starred Hugh Grant at perhaps his most charming. Read Nanjiani’s whole story below:

Exclusive interview with Wonder Woman costume designer Lindy Hemming

5 June 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s breaking box office records and winning critical plaudits around the world – but Wonder Woman would be nothing without its threads. Sean Wilson talks to Oscar-winning costumer Lindy Hemming about the movie…

After several false starts the DC Extended Universe has finally got itself on track with Wonder Woman, director Patty Jenkins’ terrific, character-led blockbuster that fuses striking action with humour and surprising levels of pathos and emotion.

There’s lots to admire about the movie, Gal Gadot’s winning central performance for one, and one of its greatest achievements resides in the level of costume design. I caught up with designer Lindy Hemming, responsible for the likes of Topsy-Turvy, Casino Royale and Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, about the challenges of communicating Wonder Woman’s design to a contemporary audience.

So in your words Lindy, how do you define the role of a costume designer and what »

16 classic video labels, and what happened to them

Cic Video? Medusa? Odyssey? Thorn Emi? We track down the classic video companies of yesterday…

The modern DVD and Blu-ray market? Well, it’s all so corporate isn’t it? No slight on the releases, or the companies involved, but I don’t think anyone gets a frission of excitement when they see a Warner Bros Home Entertainment logo on a box, in the way they used to when the Medusa logo popped up. And whilst there are firms such as Arrow and Eureka keeping the flag of quirky film companies flying, there are still a few names consigned to the VHS recycle bin, whose story is in danger of being lost. Hence, this article…

First look images of Lily James in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society movie

15 May 2017 6:04 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

As filming wraps on the Lily James-led Guernsey (aka The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society), two official images from the project have been released of the 1940’s based British production with James leading the charge as journalist Juliet Ashton.

Related: Lily James news and interviews.

The British production of Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows’ best-selling novel, carries one of the oddest titles of recent times, and has Four Weddings and a Funeral and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’s Mike Newell at the helm of the Don Roos (Marley & Me, The Opposite of Sex) adapted screenplay.

Set in 1946 Lily James plays free-spirited journalist Juliet Ashton, who forms a life-changing bond with the delightful and eccentric Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society when she decides to write about the book club they formed during the occupation of Guernsey during WWII.  Juliet »

First Look: Lily James in Mike Newell’s ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’

15 May 2017 3:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Studiocanal has unveiled the first images of Lily James in Mike Newell’s “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society,” which has completed principal photography in the U.K. The “Cinderella” actress stars in the romantic drama opposite Dutch-born actor Michiel Huisman.

James plays a free-spirited journalist who forms a life-changing bond with the eccentric society when she decides to write about the book club they formed during the German occupation of Guernsey during World War II. Huisman, who starred opposite Blake Lively in 2015’s “The Age of Adaline” and on television in HBO’s “Treme” and “Game of Thrones,” plays James’ love interest – the first contact she makes with the island and eponymous society.

Glen Powell, Matthew Goode, Jessica Brown Findlay, Tom Courtenay and Penelope Wilton co-star in the film, which was adapted from the 2008 novel, written by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, by U.S. writer and filmmaker Don Roos. »

Andie MacDowell on Hollywood Ageism, Nude Scenes and ‘Love After Love’

25 April 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Andie MacDowell waited until age 59 to do her first nude scene. As a grieving matriarch trying to get over her husband’s death and re-entering the dating scene in “Love After Love,” MacDowell has several sexual encounters in the indie drama that leave her emotionally and physically baring all.

“I kept making a joke to everybody that I waited until I fell apart before I took my clothes off,” the actress told Variety during an interview at the Tribeca Film Festival where “Love After Love” is debuting. The experience left her advising her actress daughters, Sarah Margaret Qualley and Rainey Qualley, not to wait as long before shedding their clothes on screen.

“I keep telling my girls, ‘you’re so beautiful, you should just do it,'” she says with a laugh. “‘Go. Do it. Don’t wait.'”

Ultimately, getting naked on screen didn’t feel as vulnerable as »

Quad Cinema Will Relaunch with Films from Yang, Rivette, Kubrick, Fassbinder, Wertmüller, Coppola & More

21 March 2017 12:58 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Next month will mark the return of New York City’s Quad Cinema, a theater reshaped and rebranded as a proper theater via the resources of Charles S. Cohen, head of the distribution outfit Cohen Media Group. While we got a few hints of the line-up during the initial announcement, they’ve now unveiled their first full repertory calendar, running from April 14th through May 4th, and it’s an embarassment of cinematic riches.

Including the previously revealed Lina Wertmüller retrospective, one inventive series that catches our eye is First Encounters, in which an artist will get to experience a film they’ve always wanted to see, but never have, and in which you’re invited to take part. The first match-ups in the series include Kenneth Lonergan‘s first viewing Edward Yang‘s Yi YiNoah Baumbach‘s first viewing of Withnail and I, John Turturro‘s first viewing of Pather Panchali, »

Behind the scenes of Comic Relief’s Love Actually: Andrew Lincoln’s creepy cards return

12 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Richard Curtis has reunited stars of his soppy film favourite for Red Nose Day Actually. Will it be happy endings all round? Warning: spoiler

Being on the set of a Richard Curtis film is very like being in a Richard Curtis film. Everyone is good-looking and brisk and witty, here in the borrowed London townhouse where the 60-year-old director is shooting a short sequel to his movie Love Actually. Outside in the real world people are angry, at odds, ever more polarised. On Curtis’s closed set, a dungareed world of Lillies and Berties and Cols and Ems, trays of brownies circulate and the chat is about who slept with who once but stayed friends. Hugh Grant is present, roaming around and given licence to be caustic and urbane: “If anyone needs me I’ll be in my lair.” Otherwise the prevailing spirit is level-headedness and sympathy. “Richard likes it, »

6 March 2017 10:49 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The actress sat down with Jimmy Kimmel on Monday, where she opened up about getting starstruck at the red carpet premiere of her new film, Beauty and the Beast.

"Then Celine Dion arrives and I’m like, holding my publicist like, ‘This is almost too much for me!’" Watson recounted. "You have to understand, my parents do not really understand like celebrities or Hollywood or whatever else, but my mom and I used to play Celine Dion in the car like non-stop."

Trump, Triumph and Speaking Truth to Power: Politics Take a Bow at 2017 Writers Guild Awards

When you think about the Writers Guild of America, which hosted two award ceremonies on Sunday night in two Blue cities, New York and Los Angeles, it’s no surprise that the writers spoke out. (Check out videos of some of the best bits below.)

For example, while accepting his life achievement award, filmmaker Oliver Stone got two standing ovations. After conservative James Woods was targeted at the top of the evening by WGA West Awards show host Patton Oswalt, retaliating by going onstage to steal his shoe, Woods presented the WGA award to the ultra liberal Stone, who starred him in “Salvador,” won three Oscars for “Midnight Express,” “Born on the Fourth of July” and “Platoon,” and penned “greed is good.”

Stone thanked mentors Robert Bolt and Ernest Lehman as well as Wma agent Ron Mardigian. He reminded that when he told Billy Wilder about his “Nixon” running time of 3 hours 10 minutes, »
