Beauty Vs Beast - Choose Life Choices

14 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Ja from Mnpp here with a new round of "Beauty Vs. Beast" for us to play... this week's inspiration? It's the 54th birthday of one of my favorite actors, Scotsman slash raving lunatic Robert Carlyle. Alright yes he's (probably) just acting the "raving lunatic" part... over and over again... so well... by all accounts he's a very nice gentleman. Think how sweet he seemed romancing Linus Roache in Priest! That was the first place I ever saw him - it was two years later where he'd cement the scary status he'd carry on to roles in Ravenous and 28 Weeks Later (which I actually prefer to the original) with the one and only terror that was Begbie in Danny Boyle's 1996 phenom Trainspotting.

Did I say "one and only"? Make that twice and doubly - now that Ewan and Danny have finally made up following DiCaprio-Gate (Boyle cast Leo over Ewan in The Beach, »

Richard Ayoade interview: The Double and social awkwardness

27 March 2014 6:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Ryan Lambie 31 Mar 2014 - 06:27

As his latest film, The Double, appears in UK cinemas, we chat to director Richard Ayoade about its making, social awkwardness and more...

“Maybe Brad Pitt doesn’t know what it’s like to be unpopular,” actor, writer and director Richard Ayoade tells me, his voice quiet and reflective, “but most people know what it’s like to have no one interested, or to be lonely, or to be knocked back, or to regret.”

Ayoade’s referring to his new film, The Double, a brilliantly surreal and poignant drama starring Jesse Eisenberg. Adapted from the novel of the same name by Fyodor Dostoevsky, it’s about a painfully shy young office worker (Eisenberg) and his polar opposite (also Eisenberg), who’s outgoing and confident. Unfolding like a science fiction nightmare, The Double is like a visual representation of anxiety and awkwardness, a portrait of »

Second 'Filth' Trailer with James McAvoy and Imogen Poots

25 March 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy) wants a promotion. He is clearly the best man for the job, the rest of his colleagues are just idiots. Annoyingly, there's been a murder and Bruce's boss wants results. No problem for Bruce. He's in control, and when he solves the case and wins the promotion, his wife will return to him. No problem. But is life that simple? Is Bruce the man he really thinks he is? The tragic, hilarious and memorable answers unfold in Filth, a Jon S. Baird film based on the acclaimed novel by Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting).

Filth comes to theaters May 30th, 2014 and stars James McAvoy, Imogen Poots, Jamie Bell, Joanne Frogatt, Eddie Marsan, Emun Elliott, Jim Broadbent, Kate Dickie. The film is directed by Jon S. Baird. »

‘Filth’ Red Band Trailer: James McAvoy Is A Revelation

23 March 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Over the past few years James McAvoy has been transitioning into quite a manly actor. McAvoy used to have a welcoming boyishness to him that’s been seen less and less lately. He recently stripped himself of it in Welcome to the Punch before using it to his advantage as an unassuming punk in Trance. It’s not an easy transition to go from the young pretty boy to an actor you buy as the dangerous type, but McAvoy’s managed to pull off that transformation. This summer he’ll convince anyone who thinks otherwise with Filth. He’s a revelation in this Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) adaptation, playing Detective Bruce Robertson, a man with many, many problems. McAvoy’s performance in Jon S. Baird‘s film has already been experienced in some countries. In fact, you can import the Blu-ray from the UK. It’s totally worth the blind buy, but »

22 March 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Lionsgate has released a second re-band trailer for James McAvoy's insane new film, Filth. This looks like a twisted, deranged, yet entertaining, movie.

The supporting cast includes Jamie BellImogen Poots, Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan, Joanne FroggattEmun Elliott, Martin Compston, and Kate Dickie. It's also based on a book by Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh, and this is the synopsis:

A bipolar, bigoted, junkie cop manipulates and hallucinates his way through the festive period, until he finally meets his match… himself.

Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal. As he turns his colleagues against one another »

'Filth' Red Band Trailer Starring James McAvoy

21 March 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Watch James McAvoy as you've never seen him before in the explicit red band trailer for the upcoming crime drama Filth, director Jon S. Baird's adaptation of Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh's novel. The actor stars as Scottish detective Bruce Robertson, who believes that if he gets a promotion by solving the murder of a fellow cop, his wife will come back to him and all will be right with the world. Of course, his path to redemption isn't that easy for this drug-addled loose cannon, who is seen engaging in all sorts of deplorable acts in this restricted trailer, which also features co-stars Imogen Poots, Jamie Bell and Jim Broadbent.

clickHere to check out the red band trailer, featuring a brief glimpse of nudity, sexual situations and plenty of R-rated language. Be sure to check back on Tuesday for the all-ages domestic trailer for the film, debuting on »

Watch: James McAvoy Plays Dirty in 'Filth' Red Band Trailer

21 March 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James McAvoy fans who felt the womanizing version of Professor Xavier the actor played in "X-Men: First Class" wasn't scummy enough: look no further. The red band trailer for "Filth," the British crime comedy based on the novel by "Trainspotting" author Irvine Welsh, shows the actor snorting cocaine, enlarging his penis on a Xerox machine, and perhaps most disturbingly, stealing a balloon from a young boy (the horror!). The film stars McAvoy as Edinburgh Sergeant Detective Bruce Robertson, a hedonistic, misanthropic cop who spends more time overloading on drugs, booze and sex and scheming against co-workers than he does aiding the peace. Also the butt of his cruel behavior is his mild-mannered friend (Eddie Marsan), along with anyone else who crosses his path. The film was written and directed by John S. Baird, and co-stars Imogen Poots, Jim Broadbent, and Jamie Bell. The trailer's pretty outrageous, so there's not much »

James McAvoy's Raunchy Crime Comedy 'Filth' Red Band Us Trailer

21 March 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last year we got quite the raunchy tease for the crime comedy Filth starring James McAvoy since it was already released in the United Kingdom. Now the film is coming to the United States this spring, and a red band domestic trailer shows plenty more of McAvoy being dirty and despicable as a bipolar, corrupt, junkie cop. It's certainly much different than what we've seen McAvoy do before, and far removed from his turn as Charles Xavier in X-Men: Days of Future Past this summer. But is all the vulgarity a gimmick, or is there actually a solid flick here? You'll have to find out for yourself when the film gets released. Watch the trailer! Here's the Us red band trailer for Jon S. Baird's Filth, originally from IGN: Filth is a crime comedy written & directed by up-and-comer Jon S. Baird (Green Street Hooligans, Cass) based on the novel »

Sick, Twisted, Sexy: Watch The New Red Band Trailer For James McAvoy's 'Filth'

21 March 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Booze, pills, sex, alcohol ... it's just another day in the life of an Irvine Welsh character, with the "Trainspotting" writer seeing another one of his works hit the big screen in "Filth." And yes, in case the red band nature of the trailer didn't tip you off, this is as dirty as you might expect. Starring James McAvoyJamie Bell, Eddie Marsan, Jim Broadbent and Imogen Poots, the film follows cop Bruce Robertson, a degenerate trying to solve a murder case and get a promotion, all while keeping the good times rolling. Yes, it's raunchy and wrong, but unfortunately, it doesn't quite come together. As our review from last fall notes, the movie directed by Jon S. Baird, actually isn't "as big and bad and ballsy as we’d hoped." But it does feature a score by Clint Mansell, so that's something. "Filth" arrives on iTunes/On Demand on April »

Dear Scotland: here are 76 things we'd like to apologise for, love England

20 February 2014 3:27 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hadrian's wall, Culloden, the poll tax, Jacob Rees-Mogg: yes, England has inflicted an awful lot of angst and pain on Scotland down the centuries – but, look, we still don't want you to leave

1 Sorry for calling every last one of you "Jock". We now know it's offensive, especially if you're a woman.

2 So sorry for the years of heartless Conservative governments that you never voted for that ripped the heart out of the Scottish mining, steel and shipbuilding industries, butchered public services and imposed an unwonted, dismal neo-liberal ethos on a land to which such a callous political and economic philosophy was inimical.

3 And for making you guinea pigs for Margaret Thatcher's disastrous poll tax, inflicting it on you a year before England and Wales, and then – somehow! – forgetting to backdate the rebate for the tax when it was abolished in the early 90s.

4 Sorry for the 1746 Dress Act that banned tartan, »

Danny Boyle Prepping Billie Jean King Biopic

19 February 2014 4:30 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Last year marked the 40th anniversary of Billie Jean King’s famous “Battle of the Sexes” match against Bobby Riggs. PageSix reports that after having been spotted last year at a premiere for a documentary on King, director Danny Boyle is now prepping a biopic based on the legendary tennis player.

Boyle is developing the pic with screenwriter Simon Beaufoy and producer Christian Colson, the same team that brought us Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours. Boyle and Beufoy have already met with King to work on the script.

With the director hoping to shoot his Trainspotting sequel in 2016, it’d be safe to assume that this biopic will be the next film he makes. »

Danny Boyle To Direct Film About 1973 "Battle Of The Sexes" Tennis Match Between Billie Jean King & Bobby Riggs

19 February 2014 10:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Following the release of "Trance," Danny Boyle has piling up potential next projects. "We're working on two period pieces at the moment, but they won't be like, 'Downton Abbey' period movies," the director told us last spring, teasing one was an adaptation of a book (which he wouldn't name), while the other is being written by John Hodge. Of course, there's also the long talked about "Trainspotting" sequel brewing, plus a feature take on the documentary "Smash And Grab." Now, you can add another one to the pile. The NY Post reports that Boyle has quietly started work on a biopic on famed tennis player Billie Jean King, with the film focusing on her legendary match against Bobby Riggs in 1973. Dubbed "The Battle Of The Sexes," the match found Riggs coming out of retirement at the age of 55 to play King in a best-of-five showdown (she had initially turned him down, »

Danny Boyle And Slumdog Millionaire Screenwriter Head To The Courts For A Billie Jean King Biopic

18 February 2014 10:09 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s hard to tell what kind of a film Danny Boyle will start working on, though you can always bet a fair amount of money that it won.t be a sequel to Trainspotting. Get ready to collect your winnings if you.ve done that, as the esteemed director appears to be dashing across a clay court on his way to a possible narrative film centered on the legendary tennis champion and civil rights advocate Billie Jean King. The last good film I can think of that revolved around tennis is Woody Allen.s 2005 crime drama Match Point. Something tells me this biopic will be completely different. The New York Post.s PageSix reports Boyle and Simon Beaufoy, his Oscar-winning screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire, are in New York with producer Christian Colson to meet up with King to begin their prep work for the feature and the script.

Beyond Filth Interviews: Irvine Welsh and Jon S. Baird on Filth in America

18 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

At the time of writing this piece – the first in our “Beyond Filth” feature series – certain decisions were yet to be revealed. The gold mask representing the recognition of the British Academy of Film and television Arts (BAFTA) still awaited their respective nominees to ascend to the stage and lay claim to their prize.

But from out of the uncertainty emerged one glaring certainty. In a year in which only Matthew McConaughey, in an all too brief supporting role in The Wolf of Wall Street, and Michael Fassbender could stand shoulder to shoulder with James McAvoy; even Scotland’s leading man suffered the fate of being overlooked. So Filth will not have been celebrating at this year’s post-bafta festivities. It is a startling omission, and one that failed to acknowledge the finest British film of the year. But then as Jon S. Baird reflected, “This was the most unpopular kid in school. »
