Florence Foster Jenkins to screen in Zurich.

British actor Hugh Grant is to receive the Golden Icon Award at this year’s Zurich Film Festival (Sept 22-Oct 2), where his latest feature Florence Foster Jenkins is set to be screened.

Grant, known for romantic comedies such as Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, will accept the lifetime honour on Sept 27 at Zurich’s Corso Cinema. Previous recipients include Diane Keaton, Hugh Jackman, Richard Gere and last year Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Grant will also present his latest film, Stephen Frears’ comedy drama Florence Foster Jenkins, in which he stars opposite Meryl Streep. Pathé Films is releasing the film in Switzerland.

Zff directors Nadja Schildknecht and Karl Spoerri said in a joint statement: “Hugh is as beloved a star as there is in the world of film. His uncanny charm and charisma have fuelled memorable performances for decades, but in watching his amazing body of work, the depth of »

Could ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ Land Hugh Grant His First Oscar Nomination?

11 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This week, Paramount bows “Florence Foster Jenkins,” the true story of a very nice woman who happened to be a very bad singer. Many will talk about the fact that it’s likely to land star Meryl Streep her 20th Oscar nomination, which is staggering. But perhaps even more surprising is that her co-star in the film, Hugh Grant, has never even been nominated.

Maybe it’s not that shocking, considering Grant doesn’t usually make movies that compete in the Oscar race; with the exception of “Sense and Sensibility” in 1995, his work tends to be more populist than “prestige.” But “Florence Foster Jenkins,” directed by Stephen Frears, is the perfect combination of both. It’s a big crowd-pleaser, a period piece, and a true story. It also helps that the central characters are artists – something the Academy loves. The film itself is the first entry of the year that »

Review: Did 'Person of Interest' bring the Samaritan war to a strong close?

15 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of last night's Person of Interest coming up just as soon as I remember what happened to that fat German kid in Willy Wonka... Until recently, PoI hadn't seemed too hampered by having only 13 episodes for its final season (and by having to fill several of those hours with Number of the Week stories). ".Exe," though — the conclusion of the war between Team Machine and Samaritan, and the penultimate episode of the entire series — definitely felt hampered by a lack of proper set-up time, and by having to squeeze too much story into the hour because there was no place else to put it. Huge things happened last night, most notably Finch destroying Samaritan — and sacrificing the Machine itself in the process — but much of it felt rushed, or simply too easy, given how powerful Samaritan and its forces had been presented as for multiple seasons. That Finch has to destroy his own creation in order to stop the bigger threat — and that the Machine herself had to nudge Finch into killing her to save the world — also didn't have the emotional kick I would have expected. Oddly, the Machine wound up having less personality — or, at least, less gravitas — when it switched from figures on a screen, or odd coded messages via pay phone, to talking like Root. Maybe these developments would have had more power if the show had as much time to build to them over the course of the season as it did when, say, Carter took down Hr. Or maybe it would have if the episode hadn't also featured an underwhelming subplot where Fusco found the man who killed the people in the tunnel, on top of those It's a Wonderful Life-style glimpses of a world where Finch never created the Machine in the first place. The Fusco story suggested that the whole missing persons arc might have been better off forgotten, or at least resolved a few episodes earlier. The alternate-reality material, while a nice trip down memory lane (including as satisfying an ending the show could give alt-Carter, given Taraji P. Henson's absence), and the kind of thing other shows have tried in their final seasons (at Atx Festival over the weekend, The O.C. creative team recalled their own version), seemed a distraction at this particular point in the story. The Machine was using it to try to teach Harold that its own existence ultimately wouldn't have made the world dramatically better or worse, but that Samaritan needed to be stopped at all costs. But the simulations all came and went too quickly, while also taking up too much time in an episode that needed to feel more epic than it ultimately did. There were some strong character moments — Greer proving his ultimate commitment to Samaritan, the password for the virus (Dashwood) being a callback to Finch using a copy of Sense and Sensibility to propose to Grace — but the show has done much better apocalyptic climaxes. That we largely wrapped up the Samaritan war with one episode to go suggests the creative team has something big, and surprising, planned for the series finale, so let's hope for a strong finish. What did everybody else think? »

First image for Ang Lee’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk released

12 May 2016 1:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony Pictures has shared the first image for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Ang Lee’s long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Life of Pi, and it can be seen below…

The film, which is based on Ben Fountain’s award-winning 2012 novel of the same name, follows the titular Billy Lynn and a squad of soldiers who are hailed as heroes upon their return home from the Iraq war. Their achievements on the battlefield land them a spot at the Thanksgiving football game halftime show where a series of flashbacks reveal the squad’s story.

In a statement made to Entertainment Weekly, Lee said, “Billy Lynn is a story of love, courage, and devotion. It’s the story of a young man learning his place in the world, and of the special brotherhood among men at arms, the depths of their bonds, and the sacrifices they make.”

Jane Austen’s Unfinished Novella “Lady Susan” Adapted In Love & Friendship Film – Stars Kate Beckinsale And Chloë Sevigny

24 March 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Love & Friendship is an adaptation of young Jane Austen’s novella Lady Susan, believed to have been written in the mid 1790s but revised up to a fair copy prepared in 1805 and finally published by her nephew, James Edward Austen-Leigh, in 1871.

Kate Beckinsale on Lady Susan:

“A new Jane Austen is quite a find, I think. It’s quite exciting to find something that people are not necessarily familiar with, either the trajectory of the story, or the characters.

“The thing about the Lady Susan Vernon character is that, unusually for romantic literature, at the core she’s not a very good person. And yet, she’s celebrated in the novella. It is extraordinarily well written and well observed and well drawn.

“This is an epistolary novel and it has its own difficulties in adapting. Lady Susan doesn’t have the same kind of reflection as Emma has, or self-analysis. »

The 25 most underrated film scores of the 2000s

3 March 2016 12:47 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Diverse, awe-inspiring and memorable treasures that have sadly fallen off the radar

The noughties were a tough decade for film music fans. Not only was there the unprecedented loss of four great masters in the form of Jerry Goldsmith, Elmer Bernstein, Michael Kamen and Basil Poledouris; the nature of the industry itself began to go through some seismic changes, not all of them for the better.

With the art of film scoring becoming ever more processed, driven increasingly by ghost writers, electronic augmentation and temp tracks, prospects looked bleak. However, this shouldn’t shield the fact that there were some blindingly brilliant scores composed during this period. Here’s but a small sampling of them.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny review – sequel doesn't have the chops

26 February 2016 8:37 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With a script seemingly written by algorithm, this dour follow-up to Ang Lee’s dazzling original film comes across like a poor episode of Game of Thrones

Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was, at its release in late 2000, one of those rare moments in moviegoing when everyone seemed to agree. From the director of Sense and Sensibility, this international co-production seemed like a film for the so-called prestige audience, in the vein of Ju Dou or Raise the Red Lantern. But at the 15-minute mark it cut loose with dreamlike martial arts action to rouse even the most jaded of kung fu VHS traders. With its nuanced characters, epic mythology, gorgeous cinematography, breathless action, iconic score (I can go on! It’s terrific!) word of mouth was unstoppable. The film advanced to suburban multiplexes, shattering (and still holding) box office records for a foreign language film in the United States. »

Oscar Flashback: See an 'Incredibly Nervous' Kate Winslet Make Her Academy Awards Debut in 1996

25 February 2016 9:15 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Remember when Mel Gibson won an Oscar in 1996 for directing Braveheart? That same year, a virtually unknown actress nabbed her first nomination - for Best Supporting Actress - playing opposite Alan Rickman in Ang Lee's adaptation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. It's been two decades since Kate Winslet, 40, attended her first Academy Awards, and this year the awards show veteran is nominated in the very same category for her role in Steve Jobs - although it's safe to say she'll be a bit less overwhelmed on Sunday than she was 20 years ago.
