Roadside Attractions and Miramax announced on Wednesday that director Bill Condon’s Mr Holmes will be released Friday, July 17 in select Us theaters.

Mr Holmes is a new twist on the world’s most famous detective. 1947, an aging Sherlock Holmes returns from a journey to Japan, where, in search of a rare plant with powerful restorative qualities, he has witnessed the devastation of nuclear warfare. Now, in his remote seaside farmhouse, Holmes faces the end of his days tending to his bees, with only the company of his housekeeper and her young son, Roger. Grappling with the diminishing powers of his mind, Holmes comes to rely upon the boy as he revisits the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement, and searches for answers to the mysteries of life and love – before it’s too late.

Film Review: Charming ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ Bucks Botched Sequel Trend

9 March 2015 6:14 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Motivated by financial necessity, sequels often mitigate business risk and satisfy studio executives by riding on the coattails of a previous fan base with brand equity. But business aside, to moviegoers the follow-up product so often feels like it “wasn’t nearly as good as the first” or didn’t need to return at all.

Rarely do we find films that are an exception to this unfortunate rule, but when we do, they are celebrated for doing twice what many films can’t even do once. And so is the recent case with the naturally charming “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”. While the story didn’t need to continue and could have ended in May 2012 – when Fox Searchlight’s “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” won over audiences worldwide – mostly the same usual suspects have returned to inspire you to laugh, think, feel and escape all over again.

Box Office: Vince Vaughn, 'Unfinished Business,' and This Weekend's Winners and Losers

9 March 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Expect to see a lot of premature eulogies for Vince Vaughn's career today, after the disastrous opening of "Unfinished Business," just like you saw a lot of premature obituaries last week for Will Smith's career after the lackluster debut of "Focus."

True, "Business" was an especially spectacular flop, premiering in 10th place with only an estimated $4.8 million, less than half of the already modest $10 million pundits were predicting. That the movie is only the latest in a string of Vaughn flops (including "The Watch," "The Dilemma," "The Internship," and "Delivery Man") seems reason enough for pundits to start measuring the coffin.

Weep not for Vaughn. His hands and feet were immortalized in concrete outside Hollywood's Chinese Theatre just this past Wednesday. Next month, he'll star in the eagerly-anticipated second season on HBO's "True Detective," which, if nothing else, will remind those viewers who think of him only as »

Judi Dench Reveals How She's Coping with Losing Her Vision

7 March 2015 10:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

She has been a big star for decades and is accustomed to being the main female lead in movies. But sometimes Dame Judi Dench, 80, has much bigger scripts than her costars for another reason - her eyesight. Dench, who revealed in 2012 that she suffers from macular degeneration that can lead to blindness, says that she has the typeface enlarged so she can read scripts. "So, if six of us were coming in to read a sonnet they'd all have one piece of paper and I'd have two or three," she tells People in the magazine's new issue. Chuckling, she adds, »

Richard Gere Says ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ Cast Is ‘Kind of a Dream’

4 March 2015 10:16 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When actor Bill Nighy first heard that Fox Searchlight Pictures was planning a sequel to 2012’s sleeper hit “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” even he was shocked at the decision.

“I was quite surprised,” Nighy confessed to Variety on Tuesday night at the New York premiere of “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” at the Ziegfeld Theatre. “Every time I say the words ‘Marigold 2,’ (I think) maybe I’m dreaming. With ‘The Expendables 2,’ I get it, but I didn’t imagine a bunch of old people getting back together sounded like box office dynamo.”

The studio execs behind “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” seem to have made a wise choice in greenlighting a second installment. The sequel, released in the U.K. on Feb. 26, topped the U.K. box office chart, stealing the top spot from “Fifty Shades of Grey” on opening weekend. In the U.S. on Tuesday night, »

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Earns a Silver Medal

3 March 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Almost immediately after it was released, the 2012 stealth hit Best Exotic Marigold Hotel became more a punchline than a movie. Who knew “older” people were so starved for pictures featuring gorgeously shot exotic locales, not to mention people falling in love, falling out of love, or desperately hoping for love, all while dealing with assorted problems related not just to aging but to life itself? Directed by Shakespeare in Love’s John Madden and based on the novel These Foolish Things, by Deborah Moggach, the first Marigold Hotel attracted a staunchly adult audience, apparently made up of women in particular. Naturally, then, it was s »

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movie review: return visit

26 February 2015 10:21 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

There’s not much of a story, just a chance to spend more time with the gang of classy sexy randy oldsters. And that’s just fine. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Well, what else were they going to call the sequel? At least there is an actual “second best” iteration of Sonny Kapoor’s (Dev Patel: The Last Airbender) residential hotel in the works: he is ready to expand into a new location in Jaipur, thanks in part to the steady business hand of his partner and one-time first guest (back in the previous film, that is), Muriel (Maggie Smith: My Old Lady). There actually isn’t much of the way of story this time around, just some gentle dramedy, as everyone is prodded to settle into the ex-pat retirements they chose in »

Where do the new Oscar winners stack up with previous winners?

25 February 2015 11:20 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Today, in an effort to combine the past and the present, I wanted to take a look at how the winners in the big eight categories of this most recent Academy Awards ceremony compare to the all time best. To try and figure this out, I’m actually going with the lists of the top 25 in each category that I put out last year. It’s an interesting exercise, since it’s impossible to know which will and which won’t stand the test of time, but there’s a few educated guesses that can be made. For my money, a few of the performances will certainly be remembered for years to come. I don’t think it’s impossible for you to have forgotten already, but here are the big eight winners: Best Picture went to Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, Best Director went to Alejandro González Iñárritu »

Oscar Wrap: Why the Academy Loves 'Birdman'

23 February 2015 2:19 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When "Birdman" star Michael Keaton picked up his Spirit Award on Saturday, he said, "We'd be remiss if we didn't take a moment to give a shoutout to Narcissus." That's what "Birdman"'s four-Oscar triumph-- including Picture, Director, Original Screenplay and Cinematography-- comes down to. The movie is a reflection of the Academy itself, another inside portrait of show business in a long line of Best Picture Oscar winners from recent "The Artist" and "Argo" to "Shakespeare in Love" and "All About Eve." The Academy's dominant actors, along with multiple craft branches, pushed "Birdman" to four wins in the most crowded and contested field in years--and a rare Best Picture win with no Editing nomination.  In a year of hard-to-read anomalies, the Academy gave "Birdman"'s single takes their respect.  "Two Mexicans in a »

Quiz: Best Picture Oscar winners

23 February 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

That’s it.  It’s over.  A winner has been crowned.  Birdman joins the illustrious ranks of Best Picture winners like The Godfather, On the Waterfront, Titanic, and uh, Crash.

With Aljeandro Gonzalez Inarritu's backstage drama taking home the top prize, and claiming additional awards for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography, only time will tell if it is remembered and revered the same way we now look back on The Sound of Music, Gone with the Wind, and Annie Hall. Or, in time, will leave us scratching our heads like the aforementioned Crash, A Beautiful Mind, or Shakespeare in Love whose repeat value and hindsight show that there may have been more deserving winners in those years:Brokeback Mountain, Capote, Saving Private Ryan, Life is Beautiful, Gosford Park and Moulin Rouge all lost out in their respective years.

The Academy Awards have now awarded 87 Best Picture winners. »

Oscar Speech Revelations: And the Most Thanked in Academy Award History Is …

20 February 2015 7:37 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sorry, God: You’re No. 6 on the list of individuals historically thanked in Oscars acceptance speeches — apparently you just can’t complete with the likes of Harvey Weinstein and Steven Spielberg, among other Hollywood heavy-hitters. Spielberg is the most-thanked person ever during Academy Award podium time — the “Saving Private Ryan” director has been acknowledged a whopping 42 times, according to a study by Vocativ. Weinstein — who produced “Shakespeare in Love” — is the runner-up, scoring 34 of his own “Thank Yous.” In third place historically is “Titanic” director James Cameron, with 28 thanks. “Star Wars” visionary George Lucas is fourth with 23, »

Oscars Facts: 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Academy Awards

20 February 2015 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 87th Academy Awards are this Sunday evening, and we're counting down the minutes!

We've already given you our Oscar predictions, and now we're bringing you a few of the best (and craziest) Academy Awards facts. From the first Best Actor winner to the "one dollar" Oscar rule, here are 25 things you (probably) don't know about the Oscars.

1. The youngest Oscar winner was Tatum O'Neal, who won Best Supporting Actress for "Paper Moon" (1973) when she was only 10 years old. Shirley Temple won the short-lived Juvenile Award at 6 years old.

2. At 82, Christopher Plummer became the oldest person to win an Academy Award. He received the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in "Beginners" (2010) opposite Ewan McGregor.

3. After winning Best Actress for "Cabaret" (1972), Liza Minnelli became (and still is) the only Oscar winner whose parents both earned Oscars. Her mother, Judy Garland, received an honorary award in 1939 and her father, Vincente Minnelli, »

Publicists Guild Honorees Bob & Harvey Weinstein Know How to Score Wins

19 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following in the footsteps of such Hollywood legends as Samuel Goldwyn, Louis B. Mayer, David Selznick and Jack Warner, the Weinsteins have always understood the vital role publicity plays in the filmmaking equation. And this year their instinctive knack for grabbing headlines and creating Oscar buzz has yielded 10 Academy Award nominations for their British World War II thriller “The Imitation Game,” including best picture, lead actor (Benedict Cumberbatch), supporting actress (Keira Knightley) and director (Morten Tyldum).

Those noms join the team’s already overloaded trophy case with its 300-plus Oscar noms to date, including five Academy Awards for best picture . Their gold rush began in 1996 with “The English Patient,” but it was their masterful Oscar campaign for 1998’s “Shakespeare in Love,” when that comedy upset the heavy favorite, Steven Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan,” that cemented the Weinsteins’ reputation as consummate publicity operators who know how to play the system »

To celebrate the Oscars this weekend, the Flickering Myth writing team look back at some of the previous Best Picture winners. First up, Helen Murdoch looks back at 1991’s The Silence of the Lambs

Winner of the Big 5 Academy Awards – Actor, Actress, Adapted Screenplay, Director and Picture – The Silence of the Lambs is a twisted thriller that has endeared for over 20 years. Helmed by Jonathan Demme, The Silence of the Lambs is the second of the Hannibal novels and follows Clarice Starling as she hunts serial killer Buffalo Bill with the help of imprisoned killer Hannibal Lecter. From its opening shot through the cold woods through to the first meeting with Lecter and its pitch black crescendo, it’s a film that doesn’t let up and keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout.

Best Billy on the Street Ever: Michelle Obama vs. Big Bird vs. Elena

17 February 2015 1:45 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's not every day you see Big Bird and Michelle Obama talking about Ariana Grande.

The first lady of the United States, the Sesame Street character and Billy Eichner's favorite recurring guest Elena got together in a grocery store to play a pop culture game for the comedian's Funny or Die show, Billy on the Street. And this being the first lady, healthy eating is the main focus. Well, healthy eating and Ariana Grande.

Perhaps, the best moment in the entire wonderful clip is when Elena first meets Michelle. She can't even believe it and even, "This isn't an actress?"

Michelle acknowledges the strangeness of it all, "You never thought you would meet me in a grocery store with Big Bird!"

Then the unlikely trio gets down to business, playing "Which is better? Ariana Grande or eating a carrot?"
