The Theory of Everything review - Toronto Film Festival 2014

15 September 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: James Marsh; Screenwriters: Anthony McCarten, Jane Hawking; Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones; Running time: 123 mins; Certificate: PG-13

In The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne tackles the gargantuan task of playing one of the most - if not the most - famous living scientists in the world: Stephen Hawking. Most of us know Hawking as he is today - the wheelchair-bound genius who communicates via a special speech-generating computer. Here, director James Marsh and writer Anthony McCarten, working from the memoir of Jane Hawking, take us back to the beginning, to the physicist's time as a young man pursuing his PhD at Cambridge.

This young version of Hawking that we meet is fun-loving, charming, a bit of a lazy student, but every bit the brilliant scientist that we know he will soon flourish into. The film takes time not only to explore the early genesis of some of Hawking's most exciting ideas and theories, »

20. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)

Directed by: Terry Gilliam

So…drugs, right? Based on Hunter S. Thompson’s 1971 novel of the same title, Fear and Loathing stars Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro as Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo, respectively. The pair is heading to Sin City, speeding through the Nevada desert, under the influence of mescaline. From there, the film is series a bizarre hallucinations seen through the eyes of Duke. So, we jump from hotel room to hotel room, all of the action a blur of what is happening and what really isn’t. Throughout the course of the film, Duke and/or Gonzo ingest the following drugs: mescaline, sunshine acid, diethyl ether, LSD, cocaine, and adenochrome (probably more). Duke – who is a Thompson stand-in – is supposed to be writing an article before heading back to Los Angeles, but tends to get sidetracked quite a bit. In »

Venice 2014: 'Birdman' review

27 August 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★Last year Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity (2013) wowed the Lido with its bravura long takes and technical prowess, taking us into space and back down to Earth again. This year, Venice opens with Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman (2014) (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), who trumps his fellow countryman with a film that for the most part takes place in one long, seemingly continuous take. Rather than an immersive gee-whiz experience, however, here the technical choice recreates the danger and thrill of that old cinematic favourite location the theatre. From Dickie's A Chorus Line to Shakespeare in Love, the theatre is frequently held up by cinema itself as its prestigious, more authentic older sibling.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Star Jamie Dornan Cast in Miramax's 'The Ninth Life of Louis Drax'

27 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan has been cast as the lead in Miramax's psychological thriller The 9th Life of Louis Drax. Alexandre Aja (Horns, The Hills Have Eyes) will direct. The film, which will begin shooting in Vancouver in October, marks Miramax's return to the film production business. The once-busy label that spawned such indie hits as Shakespeare in Love and Good Will Hunting had concentrated its focus in recent years on its library assets. From its coffers, Miramax dusted off Liz Jensen's best-selling novel of the same name, which it first optioned in 2004 with

Harvey Weinstein Wants To Give Negatory ‘Neverland’ Columnist Riedel The Hook

27 August 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update #2 Aug. 27: Riedel responds.

Update Friday morning: Motown The Musical announced its January, 2015 closing — paving the way, maybe, for Finding Neverland to be the next tenant at the Nederlander-owned Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.

The Riedel Watch: I promised occasional updates on reaction to some of my pal Michael Riedel’s more combustible columns (so many to choose from!), and on Wednesday he produced a doozy. Surveying two New York reviews of Finding Neverland, the Broadway-bound musical that opened last week at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Ma., Riedel complained that New York Times chief drama critic Ben Brantley and Deadline’s yours truly had “pulled our punches” in reviewing Harvey Weinstein’s show, suggesting with ever-unimpeachable taste that “if you’re going to review the baby in the cradle, strangle it.”

Miramax Closes $250 Million Securitization

21 August 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Miramax has secured a $25 million credit facility and $250 million securitization, which it plans to use to pay down debt and to support its television and film ventures.

The company used its 700-film library to secure the notes. It’s been three years since the company’s last securitization in 2011, which it undertook in order to refinance its debt.

The latest notes are due in 2026.

“We appreciate that the market recognizes Miramax’s quality of content, combined with the consistency, length, diversity and credit quality of contractual income streams, and we look forward to putting these additional funds to work as we grow new production in line with the powerful Miramax brand,” said Miramax chairman Thomas J. Barrack in a statement.

Miramax was purchased from the Walt Disney Co. in 2010 for $660 million by a consortium of investors that included billionaire Ron Tutor and Colony Capital. Since that time, its new ownership »

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).

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

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 »

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. »
