There’s Alfred Hitchcock’s “Strangers on a Train,” Anthony Minghella’s “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” and just last year, Todd Haynes’ “Carol,” based off Highsmith’s “The Price of Salt.” Now, a film adaptation of Highsmith’s 1954 novel “The Blunderer” will soon hit theaters entitled “A Kind of Murder.”

Charlie Corwin Out at Endemol Shine North America, Cris Abrego Becomes Solo CEO (Exclusive)

2 November 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a major shakeup at Endemol Shine North America, Charlie Corwin is leaving as co-chairman and CEO of the Los Angeles-based production company, a cornerstone of the Endemol Shine Group joint venture between 21st Century Fox and Apollo Global Management.

Cris Abrego, who has been co-chairman and CEO with Corwin since October 2014, will take the reins as solo leader of the company that is home to CBS’ “Big Brother,” Fox’s “MasterChef” and NBC’s “The Biggest Loser.”

The timing of Corwin’s departure is a big surprise. Corwin and Abrego just signed new deals with the company in January that saw their duties expand to overseeing all Latin American operations.

Sources said there had of late been significant differences of opinion on the direction and strategy for the company, particularly as it related to scripted programming, between Corwin and Sophie Turner Laing, CEO of the Amsterdam-based Endemol Shine parent org. Corwin »

Top 5 Matt Damon Roles

Top 5 Matt Damon RolesTop 5 Matt Damon RolesAmanda Wood10/8/2016 10:00:00 Am

We’ve been fans of Matt Damon since the beginning, when he was a fresh-faced kid from Boston with a killer instinct for acting. Now he’s won an Oscar, and he's been nominated three more times since.

Damon started off by doing dramatic roles that put him on the map: Good Will Hunting, Saving Private Ryan… movies of that ilk. He quickly established himself as one of the most appealing leading men in Hollywood, and became involved in such iconic projects as Ocean’s Eleven and The Bourne Identity.

There are few other actors in the business that can be relied upon to turn out crowd-pleaser after crowd-pleaser like Matt Damon. It looks like his good-luck streak will continue with Jason Bourne, the fifth Bourne film in the series and Damon’s fourth time portraying the amnesiac special agent. »

'Jason Bourne' Again: In Praise of Matt Damon, Action Hero

1 August 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Go back to December 1997, courtesy of whatever streaming service you favor or your vast DVD collection, and head directly to the 22-minute mark of Gus Van Sant's artisanal version of a feel-good movie, Good Will Hunting. Maybe you remember seeing that baby-faced lead actor before as one of the School Ties' anti-Semites, or that wraith of a military-veteran junkie in Courage Under Fire, or that eager-beaver legal eagle in the John Grisham potboiler The Rainmaker.

But chances are good that Hunting is the movie where Matt Damon initially »

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. »

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 | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online 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 | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online 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.
