Nyff Review: 10 Things You Should Know About 'Gone Girl'

29 September 2014 5:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A couple of nights ago, the New York Film Festival kicked off at Lincoln Center, with a starry, splashy premiere - "Gone Girl," the long-awaited adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling mystery (there were more than 3.5 million copies in print in the first year the book was published). Everyone was there, including stars Ben Affleck (who took some good-natured ribbing about his upcoming role as Batman during the post-film Q&A) and Rosamund Pike and director David Fincher. But the real star was, of course, the movie.

"Gone Girl," for those precious few who haven't read the book, concerns the disappearance of a beautiful wife (Pike) and the media scrutiny that zeroes in on her charming husband (Affleck). Did he murder her? Was she kidnapped? Or is there something altogether stranger going on? These are the questions that swirl around "Gone Girl," and as directed by Fincher ("Seven," "Zodiac," "The Social Network »

Recap: 'Doctor Who' - 'The Caretaker' shouldn't quit his day job

27 September 2014 8:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last week, Twelve and Clara went on an old-school high stakes bank robbery with a cybernetic human and a mutant human. As you do. The big takeaways were the Doctor hates himself — still — and he is actively competing with Danny for Clara’s affections. Not in a “the Doctor wants to shag Clara” way but in a “the Doctor needs to be the most important person, always and forever” kind of way. This week’s episode is called “The Caretaker” and seems more character driven. Off we go! ******** Whiplash. That is the only way to describe what is happening here. The Doctor and Clara are chained to obelisks in an alien desert. They are going to be eaten by Sand Piranhas. But somehow they escape in time for Clara’s date with Danny. “Tan,” he remarks.  Twelve entices Clara on an adventure to see fish people. Danny is asking Clara »

Bond Girl to Gone Girl: Rosamund Pike wants to disappear for a while

26 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rosamund Pike burst on to the scene as Bond girl Miranda Frost in Die Another Day back in 2002, and has since explored roles as diverse as Jane in Pride and Prejudice and Queen Andromeda in Wrath of the Titans.

Her newest role may be her most eye-catching, playing Amy opposite Ben Affleck's Nick in David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl. She told Digital Spy that she relishes playing provocative characters, but why she has "to disappear for a while" after this movie.

Updated: Rachel McAdams Offered Role in 'True Detective' Season 2

25 September 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Update: Variety is reporting that HBO has offered the lead female role in the second season of "True Detective" to Rachel McAdams, who was previously thought to be the likeliest candidate for the role. Variety also expects Taylor Kitsch to land the fourth lead role, alongside McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell. The original post follows... When Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell were announced to star in the upcoming season of HBO's "True Detective", with Justin Lin (Fast and Furious 6) set to direct the first two episodes from scripts written by series creator Nic Pizzolatto, noticeably absent from HBO's press release was confirmation of a female lead that has been speculated about ever since the second season was announced earlier this year. In an interview with HitFix back in March, Pizzolatto promised a story about "hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system. »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Keeps Shuffling Along

24 September 2014 7:08 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

It looks like feuding onscreen father and daughter Charles Dance and Lena Headey are heading to Jane Austen land to co-star in the “re-imagining” (to put it mildly) of Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” but with a little dose of zombie mayhem to spice things up. Per Deadline, the “Game of Thrones” actors will be battling the undead in “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” joining previously cast star Lily James, along with Sam Riley, Bella Heathcoate, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, and Suki Waterhouse. Screen Gems seems a strong match for this literary mash-up that begins with the tangled relationship between lovers from different social classes in 19th-century England, and is complicated by a full-on outbreak of zombies. That plot embellishment escaped Austen but was added by Seth Grahame-Smith, and it probably would have propelled me to actually finish Austen’s book had she thought of it in the first place. »

Production is set to start today with Burr Steers directing the flick. The film is set for release sometime in 2015. The film also stars Lily James (Wrath of the Titans), Sam Riley (Maleficent), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Douglas Booth (Worried About the Boy »

Game Of Thrones Stars Will Slay Zombies, Jane Austen-Style

24 September 2014 6:26 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

I never made it through Jane Austen.s Pride and Prejudice back in high school . it was the second book in a double feature that included Tess of the d.Urbervilles in my senior year English class, and I just couldn.t do it. However, high school students of the future will have a much better go of it since they can skip Austen.s literary classic and just watch the new film version, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies . which includes zombies and stars from HBO.s hit series Game of Thrones. I bet some of the papers those kids write are going to be awesome. The long-in-development feature, based on Seth Grahame-Smith.s novel (with an obvious tip of the hat to Austen.s novel of manners), has added two cast members from HBO.s wildly popular series . villains Lena Headey and Charles Dance . according to this report posted »

Politically Active Actress Bergen Made into Nixon's 'Enemies List'

22 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Polly Bergen: Actress on Richard Nixon's 'enemies list' (image: Polly Bergen publicity shot ca. late 1950s) (See previous article: "Polly Bergen Movies: First U.S. Woman President.") As discussed in the previous post, despite its deceptively progressive premise — the first United States woman president as a palpable reality — Kisses for My President, written by veteran Paramount screenwriter Claude Binyon (Search for Beauty, The Gilded Lily) and newcomer Robert G. Kane (whose sole other movie credit was the poorly received Arnold Schwarzenegger comedy Western Villain), was an unabashedly reactionary, "traditional family values" effort. Ironically, Polly Bergen, for her part, was a liberal-minded, politically active Democrat. At around the time Kisses for My President was released, Bergen, along with Gregory Peck, James Garner, and other Hollywood personalities, publicly came out against California's Proposition 14, a 1964 ballot initiative that would have nullified the Rumford Fair Housing Act, thus paving the way for »

Amanda’s Adaptations – Bridget Jones’s Diary: Book Vs Film

12 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Occasionally, I do things the wrong way round and see a film before reading the book on which it’s based. In the case of delving into Bridget Jones’S Diary, I watched the film, the sequel and the entire 90s series of Pride and Prejudice over and over again long before finally purchasing the book and seeing what all the fuss was about.

From the opening page of the book, written by Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones is a brilliantly ‘real’ character unlike any I had ever read and the result is an easy, fun and adorable read. Unlike recent first person stories which have infuriating inner monologues, Bridget is so hilarious and so honest that even when she is moping you want to hug not hit her as she dwells on issues with family, work and, of course, her love life.

What a marvellous creation!
