Parkland takes Maxine Peake thriller

7 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: UK sales outfit boards psychological thriller ahead of Toronto.

London-based sales outfit Parkland Pictures has boarded world rights to Steve Reeves’s thriller, Keeping Rosy, which will play at Dinard Film Festival (Oct 8-12).

Parkland will introduce the film to international buyers at Toronto.

Maxine Peake stars as a career-driven woman who is passed over for a long-expected promotion, leading to frustration which boils over with dire consequences.

The film also stars The Inbetweeners’  Blake Harrison and was produced by Richard Holmes (Eden Lake, Waking Ned), his third collaboration with French producer Isabelle Georgeaux after Jadoo and Resistance.

It marks Reeves’ first feature film, accompanied by DoP Roger Pratt (Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, Chocolat) and composer Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love, Billy Elliot).

The deal was negotiated by John Cairns and Pierre-Louis Manes-Murphy for Parkland Pictures and by Richard Holmes and Isabelle Georgeaux on behalf of Redemption Films. »

Peter Jackson Suggests Even Longer Cuts Of 'The Lord Of The Rings' Could Be Released

26 July 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Many many epochs past, before claiming its rightful status as the beloved Oscar-winning trilogy known the world over, "The Lord of the Rings" was planned to be a single movie, directed by John Madden ("Shakespeare In Love," "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"). Obviously, that didn't come to pass, and Peter Jackson went in the opposite direction. Given a nearly unlimited canvas to paint on, and buoyed by global success, the theatrical cuts of each movie were supplemented by extended footage on home video. And when Jackson returned to helm "The Hobbit" after Guillermo del Toro's exit, it wasn't long until the planned two-movie saga was expanded to yet another trilogy. In short, Jackson has an inexhaustible supply of J.R.R. Tolkien's material to put on the big screen, and today at Comic-Con he suggested even more could be coming from "The Lord of the Rings."

London Critics Heart ‘Shakespeare In Love’; NY Times Not So Much

24 July 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The stage adaptation of Oscar winner Shakespeare In Love has opened at London’s Noel Coward Theatre to raves from many of the UK critics but a big ho-hum from the New York Times‘s Ben Brantley, which could throw a wet blanket over plans for a Broadway transfer by co-producers Disney and Sonia Friedman. “I’ve often attacked our modern mania for turning movies into plays. But, in the case of Shakespeare In Love, the transformation is fully justified,” wrote Michael Billington in The Guardian. “Even more than the original screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, Lee Hall’s new version is a […] »

‘Shakespeare in Love’: Theater Review

23 July 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The 1998 film Shakespeare in Love has its passionate defenders. Nevertheless, it’s perhaps remembered now less for its merits than for being the movie that somehow beat strong, arguably more enduring contenders — such as Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line — to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. (In a way, the real winner was Harvey Weinstein, who ran a very shrewd marketing campaign.) Marc Norman's and Tom Stoppard’s Oscar-winning script was always the film’s secret weapon, which is lucky for the new stage adaptation of Shakespeare in Love. Like restoration architects who strip what seems

Alan Moore wants fans to boycott Brett Ratner’s Hercules

20 July 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Legendary graphic novel writer Alan Moore (Watchmen, V For Vendetta) has called for fans to boycott the forthcoming Hercules movie directed by Brett Ratner (X:Men The Last Stand, Rush Hour), produced by Paramount/MGM and starring Dwayne Johnson. The latest adaptation of the Greek demigod is based on Radical Comics Hercules: The Thracian Wars written by longtime friend Scott Moore (no relation to Alan).

Alan Moore’s issue has nothing to do with the quality of the final piece or even how faithful it’s been to the original source material – like his similar qualms with his own graphic novel adaptations – it is simply to do with how his friend’s name – following his untimely death in March of this year – has been used to help promote the movie. Speaking to Bleeding Cool, Alan Moore explains that following unsuccessful negotiations regarding the rights of the comic books Scott Moore received »

However the 37-year-old singer - who also has an eight-year-old son, Moses, with Gwyneth, 41 - insists changing his diet has been a personal choice.

Exclusive: Geoffrey Rush Talks ‘The Book Thief’

4 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Oscar-winning actor Geoffrey Rush stars as Hans Hubermann in director Brian Percival’s big screen version of the critically acclaimed novel The Book Thief .

In 1939, 12-year-old Liesel Meminger is sent to stay with foster parents, Hans and Rosa Hubermann, as Nazi Germany gears up for war and nationalist fever and fear grips the country. She arrives with few possessions but among them is a book, The Gravedigger’s Handbook, which she found in the cemetery when her younger brother was buried there.

At first, Liesel is alone, illiterate and afraid but gradually, with the help of her kind, accordion-playing father, she learns to read and grows closer to her family. Her love affair with books – and the power of storytelling – sustains her through the dark days as life in her neighborhood becomes ever more dangerous. She rescues books from book burnings and “borrows” them from the library of the mayor. »

Gor blimey! Us stars attempt the English accent - Best and worst

Beginning tonight at 9pm, Maggie Gyllenhaal stars in BBC Two's new eight-part thriller The Honourable Woman.

In the drama from The Shadow Line writer Hugo Blick, New York-born Maggie boasts an impressive English accent in her role as Nessa Stein.

Bit of a cheat, this one.

The Definitive War Movies: 20-11

26 June 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Top twenty. Now we start to see the more widely recognizable films that people have some emotional attachment to. World War II gets a few mentions in this portion of the list, but this is one of the more diverse sections, overall. We get a mention of the Boer War, the Algerian War, and the Korean War, as well as the only movie about the American Civil War on this list.

20. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943)

Directed by: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

Conflict: Boer War, World War I, World War II

The only film on the list that spans multiple wars is also probably the least battle-focused film on the list. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp is told through an extended flashback, following Major-General Clive Wynne-Candy (Roger Livesey) as he rises through the ranks of the British military from war to war. The flashback is »

Aubrey Plaza Gets Serious (And Sexy) In About Alex Trailer

23 June 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We've been seeing a lot of nostalgia over the summer of 1984 lately, but let's look back a little farther to the fall of 1983, when The Big Chill hit theaters and promptly won hearts. This ensemble drama, about a batch of old college friends who confront their current dilemmas together after attending the funeral of one of their own, is clearly the inspiration for the upcoming dramedy About Alex. And you can see it all over its new trailer. As quoted above, "The Big Chill for Millennials, complete with star-stuffed ensemble," was actually how I described About Alex following its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. The bittersweet movie marks the directorial debut of its screenwriter, Jesse Zwick, who is following in the footsteps of his Academy Award-winning father Ed Zwick, producer of Shakespeare In Love and director of movies like About Last Night.

Contemporary Costume: Where Have the Aloha Shirts Gone?

19 June 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

While science-fiction and period costume can sell to collectors at auction for tens of thousands of dollars, the future of contemporary costume from the contemporary drama, comedy and thriller genres is unclear. Costumes from films set in the modern age are not valued as highly. Sourced from costume houses, high-street stores, and even actor’s own wardrobes, these pieces could be lost for good for future generations of collectors and fans if current mentality doesn’t change.

Contemporary costume, even from popular movies, is surprisingly hard to trace. What has happened to George Clooney’s Aloha shirts from The Descendants? The film’s costume designer Wendy Chuck isn’t sure. “I have no idea where his shirts went, probably into the stock at Fox costume house,” she guesses. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s iconic jacket worn as social armour in Brick? Another uncertain costume designer. Michele Posch rented three of the »

Three Series Where Directors Excelled This TV Season

Masters of Sex’: Carrying a Cinematic Sensibility to the Small Screen

Michael Apted first found fame in 1964 as the director of “Seven Up,” a groundbreaking television documentary charting the lives of British children that has since spawned a veritable institution, each film revisiting the subjects seven years later (2012’s “56 Up” was the latest

So it’s a befitting progression that Apted, who also helmed the James Bond film “The World Is Not Enough” and the Jodie Foster starrer “Nell,” would find himself back in TV at this juncture in his career, this time directing episodes of Showtime’s “Masters of Sex,” a series about pioneering physician William Masters and his research partner Virginia

While Apted’s return to TV is pragmatic in part — “The sort of movies I grew up doing are not made anymore and it’s difficult to find a project that I want to do” — he »

The Definitive War Movies: 40-31

10 June 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I promise – it wasn’t my plan to have seven of the ten films on this portion of the list focus on World War II. But, if we look back at the biggest international conflicts of all time, World War II is the one that provides the most opportunity. It’s a chance for a number of different countries to look at the same war from different perspectives. In this portion alone, there’s a French film, a German film, a Hungarian film, a couple British/American films, and a few American films – all about varied aspects of World War II.
