New Trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur Re-invents the Legend

23 July 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Warner Bros. has owned Sdcc 2016 with their amazing trailer game!  The new trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was just one more feather in their cap!  Check it out!

Guy Ritchie has taken the mysticism to a whole new level in the trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.  It's almost got a Dark Souls feel to it, in a good way.  What is interesting is that, it kind of looks like Arthur (Charlie Hunnam), inadvertantly, unlocks a barrage of magical creatures by pulling out Excalibur.  

It's definitely a different take on the lore of King Arthur.  Let's learn more with the official synopsis!

When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. »

Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.

On Saturday, Warner Bros. debuted the trailer during their Comic-Con presentation in Hall H.

When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city.

Damon Expects Bourne Series To Go The James Bond Route In Future, Talks Recasting Role

11 July 2016 8:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I'll never forget seeing the first trailer for The Bourne Identity. It was 2001 and, up until that point, Damon had acquitted himself quite nicely as a dramatic actor-writer in high-minded productions like Good Will HuntingSaving Private RyanThe Talented Mr. Ripley, and The Legend Of Bagger Vance. He and pal Ben Affleck crossed over into the A-list at the same time, thanks to their work as writers/actors in 1996's Good Will Hunting, but they seemingly split after that. Damon went serious, and Affleck went big. While Damon worked on the kinds of films mentioned above, Affleck ran around making bombastic blockbusters like Armageddon, Reindeer Games, and Pearl Harbor.

So the idea, as a follower of films, was that- of the two of them- Damon was more of the thoughtful artiste, while Affleck was more the celebrity movie star. 

That's what made the debut trailer for The Bourne Identity so attention-grabbing. »

Film Review: Genius

7 June 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

All the elements inherent in many successful movies are present in the upcoming Colin Firth and Jude Law biographical film, Genius.  Gifted actors (the aforementioned are joined by Nicole Kidman and Laura Linney, among others), a seasoned screenwriter (John Logan, who wrote Gladiator and The Aviator, among others), and the trappings—from costumes to sets—of period movies.  But, when it comes to the end product, the total for Genius is not greater than the sum of its parts.  The film is loud on the surface but mostly flat underneath.

Jude Law plays the misunderstood early 20th Century American novelist Thomas Wolfe.  In the opening scenes, he walks into the office of famed New York editor Max Perkins, already a successful publisher of the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway.  Perkins, played by a solid Colin Firth (one of the few outstanding lead performances in the film), becomes »

'The English Patient' composer Gabriel Yared: temp tracks pose headache

22 April 2016 3:07 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Oscar-winning composer talked about his process and collaborations with Anthony Minghella and Xavier Dolan at London’s Barbican.

Oscar-winning composer Gabriel Yared discussed his process and collaborations with directors Anthony Minghella and Xavier Dolan during an event at London’s Barbican on Wednesday (April 20).

Yared told the audience that one of the biggest challenges facing contemporary composers is the temporary music track, which is often used by filmmakers during production to serve as an atmospheric guideline.

Yared explained that the problem occurs when composers are brought on-board late in the production process and have to compete with an existing soundtrack. He said: “Nowadays, when you receive a film it is already temped with pieces of music from this or the other film.

“I think this is really dishonest. The editor and the director get used to the music and then when they hire the composer, he has to fight with all these habits and sometimes even edit »

A Kind Of Murder Review [Tribeca 2016]

19 April 2016 5:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Patricia Highsmith’s novels have been the go-to for complex, urbane thrillers since Alfred Hitchcock made the first Strangers on a Train adaptation in 1951. A Kind of Murder is the latest in the Highsmith subgenre – it’s based on the novel The Blunderer from 1954, and directed by Andy Goddard from a screenplay by Susan Boyd.

The film tells the story of Walter Stackhouse (Patrick Wilson), a successful architect living in the suburbs of New York City with his real-estate agent wife Clara (Jessica Biel). But, as with all Highsmith’s works, things are not well in the paradise of American suburbia. Clara is a neurotic with overtones of paranoia and her unwillingness to seek help has set her husband on edge and her marriage on the rocks.

Then comes the news of a murder of a woman at a roadside café near Saratoga Springs, with the husband Kimmel (Eddie Marsan) as the prime suspect. »

Inside Endemol Shine’s Ambitious Plan to Conquer Global TV

29 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When top executives of Endemol Shine Group gather next week at the Majestic hotel in Cannes, the scene inside the conference room might be mistaken for a United Nations Security Council meeting.

Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Israel, Russia, China and Switzerland are among the more than 30 territories that will be represented alongside the superpowers of North America and the U.K. at an extra-long table. The gathering is so large that there’s a microphone and a nameplate with country flag set out for each participant.

The brainstorming and information-sharing sessions will be held largely in English, although there will be side conversations among smaller groups in numerous native tongues. Coinciding with the annual MipTV international sales conference, the group will spend a few days talking shop, screening projects and generally arming themselves with the latest market intel.

Luther’s Neil Cross Crafting Talented Mr. Ripley Series

27 March 2016 3:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After nailing a fourth season of his gritty, Idris Elba-powered detective series Luther, Neil Cross has been tapped to adapt Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Talented Mr. Ripley (and the other books in that series, which spans five novels) for the small screen.

Endemol Shine Studios, Entertainment 360, and Diogenes are behind the show, which had been hunting for a writer ever since the studios struck a deal with the Highsmith estate to build a TV property around the Tom Ripley character last year. Cross is a great get for the project; though his ventures outside of Luther, including NBC’s mediocre pirate show Crossbones, haven’t been nearly as well-received, the guy knows how to craft strong male protagonists, and Ripley certainly fits the bill.

Highsmith’s 1950s-set novels all revolved around Ripley, a con artist and serial killer whose lack of morality and personal greed often lead him to commit heinous acts. »

Did Jennifer Garner Just Describe Ben Affleck With a Matt Damon Movie Quote?

26 February 2016 1:16 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Jennifer Garner is making headlines with her incredibly frank Vanity Fair interview in which she finally opened up about her split from Ben Affleck. The actress dropped tons of truth bombs in the profile, but one quote in particular is sticking out to us: at one point, Garner describes her estranged husband as "complicated," adding, "I always say, 'When his sun shines on you, you feel it.' But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it's cold. He can cast quite a shadow." If her comment sounds familiar, it's probably because you remember hearing similar words spoken by Gwyneth Paltrow in 1999's The Talented Mr. Ripley - while describing Dickie Greenleaf (played by Jude Law), Paltrow's character Marge Sherwood tells Tom Ripley, "The thing with Dickie . . . it's like the sun shines on you, and it's glorious. And then he forgets you, and it's very, very cold." She goes on: "When you have his attention, »
