TV Is Not the New Film, But It’s Ok That Festivals Are Blurring the Lines

26 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: Looks like Toronto is the latest film festival to add a television section to its lineup. These days, everywhere from Sundance to SXSW to the Canadian “festival of festivals,” smallscreen content is getting a big push, which is intriguing — and even ironic — for all sorts of reasons (ironic because the state of distribution being what it is, many of the films in Toronto will end up trickling down to VOD, rather than ever getting a commercial theatrical run). On one hand, the trend isn’t exactly new: Classy longform features like “Carlos” (which premiered at Cannes in 2010), “Top of the Lake” (Sundance 2013) and “Olive Kitteridge” (Venice 2014) made their bows at top-tier film fests before going on to air as miniseries on Canal Plus, BBC Two and HBO, respectively.

9 bodice ripping period dramas - from the steamy to the sodden

21 August 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Prithee, my lord, loosen our corsets and unbutton our breeches. This week has seen a new wave of period drama steam, from Natalie Dormer's BBC film The Scandalous Lady W to the furore about the 'pornographic' new adaptation of Lady Chatterley's Lover.

But they're hardly the first shows to bare historical breasts and bottoms. Here's our 9 favourite saucy costume dramas...

Pride and Prejudice

Ooh, Mr Darcy. We'll ease you in gently with the BBC's iconic 1995 Pride and Prejudice miniseries, fondly remembered for the scene in which Colin Firth's dashing hero takes a dip in the Pemberley lake and emerges to greet his unexpected guests, dripping like a dolphin in a wet T-shirt contest.

While it may have shocked your grandma, this is pretty tame stuff.

Tipping the Velvet

Classic 19th century literature isn't known for its portrayal of lesbian love but Sarah Waters set out to right this »

Ready Player One: All your favourite video game movies in one supercut

20 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Inspired by console, computer, or arcade games, movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Wreck It Ralph, and the Resident Evil franchise take us into the often unrealistic world of gaming, where double-sided axes are as popular as iPhones, dinosaurs are totally real, and Michael Cera is an action hero.

This weekend, Rupert Friend (Pride and Prejudice), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Into Darkness), and Ciarán Hinds ("Game of Thrones," but also, like, everything) enter into the video game 'verse with Hitman: Agent 47

To celebrate all things pixel-related, we threw together a supercut of some of our favourite video game movies. Watch the video below, and you’ll gain 43Xp, 87Hp, and the irresistible urge to run straight home and kill some Resident Evil zombies.

Check Out These New Character Posters For Joe Wright’s Pan

15 August 2015 7:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Warner Bros. has released 4 new posters for their upcoming adventure film, Pan, spotlighting the main characters from the movie. There’s Hugh Jackman (X-Men: Days Of Future Past) as the villainous pirate Blackbeard, Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) as Tiger Lilly, Levi Miller as “the boy who wouldn’t grow up” himself, and Garret Hedlund (Tron Legacy) as James Hook – which is an appropriate name for a guy who will eventually lose a hand and have it replaced with… a hook.

Director Joe Wright (Hanna, Pride And Prejudice, Atonement) has promised fans a very different Peter Pan story, and from what we know thanks to the plot summary below, it definitely seems to be a fresh take on the early days of these characters.

Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage »

13 August 2015 6:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sales agency, Arclight Films has struck multiple pre-sale deals for “Lost In The Pacific,” a 3D Chinese sci-fi adventure film that sees a luxury airline flight get into difficulties over the ocean.

Sound editing is supervised by Oscar-nominated Kami Asgar and Sean McCormack. Oscar-winning Mark Paterson (Les Miserables) did the final sound mix. »

Squirrels Unite: The Forgotten Genius of Kendrew Lascelles

11 August 2015 7:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

L.A. is a strange town. Where have I heard that statement before? It is unique in the

world – grown from the Hollywood seed, it has developed its own culture . . . and is,

in parts, quite dysfunctional.

A culture of creative paranoia. Did you know that an agent will not talk to anyone

unless he or she already knows that person, or there is a personal introduction.

Sound anything like Pride and Prejudice?

“Do I know you Miss Elizabeth?”

“We have yet to be introduced, Mr. Darcy.”

No one will read anything – forget a script - even an email – without a

recommendation from a trusted colleague. I pity the folk at 2000 Avenue of the Stars

when the unknown fireman tries to evacuate the building in a crisis.

“I’m sorry sir, the people on the 12th floor refuse to accept that you are a real

person. Do you have an appointment? »

Mister Fincher and Monsieur Dreyer

"The enjoyment of a work of art, the acceptance of an irresistible illusion, constituting, to my sense, our highest experience of "luxury," the luxury is not greatest, by my consequent measure, when the work asks for as little attention as possible. It is greatest, it is delightfully, divinely great, when we feel the surface, like the thick ice of the skater's pond, bear without cracking the strongest pressure we throw on it. The sound of the crack one may recognise, but never surely to call it a luxury." —Henry James, from The Preface to The Wings of the Dove (1909) "[The critic’s] choice of best salami is a picture backed by studio build-up, agreement amongst his colleagues, a layout in Life mag (which makes it officially reasonable for an American award), and a list of ingredients that anyone’s unsophisticated aunt in Oakland can spot as comprising a distinguished film.

A special look at the visual effects in Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie drama Maggie

24 July 2015 6:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie drama Maggie is released in the UK today, here’s a special look at the visual effects used in the movie…

Maggie, we need to talk about your strawberry jam cravings.”

Director Henry Hobson knew that the visual effects would be an important part of the final look of the film, Maggie. For a film with a modest budget, the success of the 250 visual effects shots would be essential for creating the realism he was determined to achieve.

The visual effects in Maggie were largely created by British visual effects veterans Cinesite, the experts behind films including San Andreas, Iron Man 3, Edge of Tomorrow, Skyfall, World War Z and the highly successful Harry Potter series. Their team of 60 created many of the shots in just over two months.

“Coming from a visual effects world, I was very conscious of its potential benefits. »

Comic-Con 2015 Interviews: Lily James, Matt Smith & More Talk Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

16 July 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On February 5th, manners will meet the macabre in Screen GemsPride and Prejudice and Zombies, the upcoming film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name. At Comic-Con last week, Daily Dead participated in roundtable interviews with the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies director and cast, who discussed the film's physicality, investable characters, formidable zombies, and much more.

Writer/director Burr Steers on his vision for the film:

Burr Steers: It was actually something I knew was out there because a lot of people had taken shots at trying to get it made. I looked at it and had a take on it that I was really confident would work. I went in there and rewrote it, and made it happen.

I saw it in my mind the way you'd approach a play. We'd set up this alternate world where there's a zombie pandemic that »

Watch: Pride And Prejudice And Zombie Cast Plays “Would You Rather”

14 July 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’ve been working on a brand new game to add to the rotation and got the opportunity to give it a go last week at San Diego Comic-Con. Welcome to the very first edition of Collider’s movie-themed “Would You Rather!” The goal is to have some fun, but a top priority of the game is also to give a little insight into how a filmmaker likes to work, his or her on-set preferences, etc. Shortly after the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Hall H panel, I got the opportunity to sit down with Matt Smith who plays Mr. Collins and Jack Huston who plays Wickham. Lily James leads the adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith book as Elizabeth Bennet. She’s basically the same Elizabeth Bennet featured in the original Jane Austen novel except for the fact that she and her four sisters, Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady »

Would You Swipe Left on James Bond? Rupert Friend Explains Why You Should

Hitman: Agent 47 is an intense action film about a highly trained assassin played by Rupert Friend (you might recognize him from Homeland or Pride and Prejudice). And yet our Comic-Con International: San Diego interview with the actor and costar Hannah Ware was all about romance, Tinder profiles, and why 47 would be a much better date than 007 himself, James Bond. Watch the duo sound off about all that and more in the video, above, then catch up on all things Comic-Con. »

Get to know Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

11 July 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

"Pride and Prejudice" is a lovely regency novel by Jane Austen about the five unmarried Bennet daughters and their trials and tribulations in life and love. So where, exactly, do the zombies come in?

Well, as it turns out, after a certain amount of time, books enter the public domain – meaning you can do whatever you want to them. "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" will enter public domain in 2044, so you can look forward to that. Knowing this, author Seth Graeme-Smith at the folks at Quirk Books (who also published my book, "The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy", hooray!) decided that Austen’s classic needed a little revamp – an undead revamp.

In this alternate universe, zombies roam the English countryside, and the Bennet ladies are well-versed in martial arts and weaponry (though carrying a musket in public is thought of as unladylike). They still, of course, »

"Pride And Prejudice And Zombies"

4 July 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek new images from director Burr Steers live-action feature adaptation of author Seth Grahame-Smith's 2009 parody novel "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies", that combines Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel "Pride and Prejudice" with elements of modern 'zombie' fiction:

"...'Elizabeth Bennet' and her four sisters live on a countryside estate with their parents. 'Mr. Bennet' guides his daughters in martial arts and weapons training, molding them into a fearsome zombie-fighting army.

"Meanwhile, 'Mrs. Bennet' endeavours to marry the girls off to wealthy suitors. When the wealthy and single 'Mr. Bingley' purchases a nearby house, Mrs. Bennet spies an opportunity and sends the girls to the first ball where Bingley is expected to appear.

"The girls defend the party from a 'zombie' attack, and attraction sparks between Mr. Bingley and the eldest daughter 'Jane Bennet', while Elizabeth clashes with Bingley's friend, the monster-hunter 'Fitzwilliam Darcy'..."

New Images From Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Have Arrived

3 July 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

EW’s rather fantastic San Diego Comic-Con Preview continues with fresh new images from the long in development, at last in production adaption of Seth Graheme-Smith’s famous literature/zombie mash-up, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, starring Lily James, Sam Riely, Jack Huston, Matt Smith, Lena Heady, and Charles Dance. There’s not much zombie action on display here, but plenty of Jane Austen’s heroines as bad ass zombie fighters, and a real sense that director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) is going for a very grounded tone to the material. As he tells EW,  “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight. The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink. It’s definitely not camp.” Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is released in the U.S. on February 5th 2016, and »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies tells the classic love story with an apocalyptic twist sure to scare anyone into fits of panic, followed by a series of hot flashes.

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' First Look: Do we even care anymore?

3 July 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The most surprising thing about "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"? That they actually ended up making it. After losing three directors and at least one major star (Natalie Portman), the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's bestselling mashup novel is finally headed to the big screen, and EW has the exclusive on the first official images from the film, which director Burr Steers ("Igby Goes Down") says will be played without the tongue-in-cheek tone readers of the book may have been expecting: “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” Steers told EW. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” Added star Lily James ("Cinderella"): “It’s definitely not camp.” You can view the images below. But first, here's a capsule history of the long-in-the-works production: April 2009: Seth Grahame-Smith's »
