Cannes: Atom Egoyan Defends 'The Captive' and Addresses His Many Critics: 'I have a really thick skin'

16 May 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Canadian filmmaker Atom Egoyan has been a fixture on La Croisette since his 1994 breakout feature "Exotica," which took the Fipresci prize. "The Sweet Hereafter" won that same award in addition to the Grand Prix honor in 1997. The filmmaker's career has by no means taken a nosedive since, but to many, he hasn't lived up to the promise set by his earlier efforts (save for "Felicia's Journey," which featured a great performance by the late Bob Hoskins). "Where the Truth Lies," "Adoration" and "Chloe" were all met with mixed reviews, while his latest to open in theaters, the West Memphis Three drama "Devil's Knot," was his worst reviewed effort to date. His last two films ("Chloe" and "Devil's Knot") weren't given a Cannes berth, so early signs pointed to "The Captive" being a likely comeback for Egoyan. Unfortunately, according to the majority of critics in the room for today's world premiere at Cannes, »

Watch: First Clip From Atom Egoyan's Cannes Thriller 'The Captive' Starring Ryan Reynolds Plus New Pics & Poster

12 May 2014 5:19 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Can Atom Egoyan get his groove back? It has been a while since the director showcased the skill he brought to films like "The Sweet Hereafter" or "Felicia's Journey," and last weekend's "Devil's Knot" was another in a string of recent pictures that were tepidly received by both critics and the public. But "The Captive" finds him in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival and the first clip is here highlighting the drama to come. Starring Ryan ReynoldsScott SpeedmanMireille EnosRosario DawsonKevin Durand, Alexia Fast and Bruce Greenwood, the film tells the story of Matthew, a father who is convinced eight years after his daughter’s abduction, thanks to a series of new clues, that she's still alive. And in this first clip from the movie, we see the father and daughter in happier times, picking up dinner, though with weather providing an ominous backdrop against which »

Cannes Check 2014: Ryan Reynolds in Atom Egoyan's 'The Captive'

3 May 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome back to Cannes Check, In Contention's annual preview of the films in Competition at next month's Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off on May 14. Taking on different selections every day, we'll be examining what they're about, who's involved and what their chances are of snagging an award from Jane Campion's jury. Next up, the third Canadian director in the lineup: Atom Egoyan's "The Captive." The director: Atom Egoyan (Canadian, 53 years old). There was a time when Egoyan looked to be as estimable a festival fixture as his compatriot David Cronenberg, but his career hasn't moved in the direction many thought it would after he won big at Cannes (and scooped a surprise Best Director Oscar nod) for 1997's critical peak “The Sweet Hereafter.” Born in Cairo to Armenian-Egyptian parents – a heritage he'd later explore in his 2002 film “Ararat” – Egoyan largely grew up in British Columbia and studied »

Bob Hoskins: we should remember him for his TV work too

1 May 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From the adult literacy series On the Move, through to classy literary adaptations, via the odd dodgy geezer or two, the late actor's small-screen career shares the qualities of his best film work

Bob Hoskins: five-foot-six cubic and bursting with brilliance

Bob Hoskins: forget Mona Lisa, Felicia's Journey was his masterpiece

Helen Mirren pays tribute to a 'great actor and greater man'

Bob Hoskins was a godsend for those TV shows that would feature footage of the work now-famous performers took early on to pay the bills. Shows such as Before They Were Famous. Because before he was on the big screen in films such as Mona Lisa, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and The Cotton Club, Hoskins had played a removals man who sought help for his illiteracy in On the Move, a Sunday afternoon series of 10-minute dramas (screened in 1975 as part of the BBC's adult education »

Bob Hoskins: 'A beautiful, kind man who wanted most to be with his family'

Elaine Cassidy, Hoskins' co-star in Felicia's Journey, has paid tribute to the late actor, while Hoskins' daughter posts online 11 life lessons from her father

 Peter Bradshaw: Felicia's Journey was Hoskins' finest hour

Bob Hoskins' co-star on one of the late actor's most celebrated films has paid tribute to the British cinema icon as a "brilliant, beautiful kind man who wanted more than anything to be with his family".

Irish actor Elaine Cassidy, who worked with Hoskins on Felicia's Journey, said she was "shocked, speechless and of course saddened" to hear of the actor's death from pneumonia at the age of 71.

Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau, Bruno Ganz & Dean Norris To Star In Atom Egoyan's 'Remember'

30 April 2014 2:16 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director Atom Egoyan has a number of acclaimed films under his belt — "The Sweet Hereafter," "Felicia's Journey," "Exotica" — but it should also be noted, that when he stumbles, he misses hard. His last two films in particular didn't hit the mark, with the campy sexytimes "Chloe" and the West Memphis Three drama "Devil's Knot" finding the director off his game. And while we wait to see how his Cannes entry "The Captive" turns out, he's already lining up his next pic. Veterans Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau and Bruno Ganz along with "Breaking Bad" fave Dean Norris have been slated to star in "Remember." The film is said to be a thriller "in which the darkest chapter of modern history collides with a contemporary mission of revenge." Okay, then....any guesses? It's hard not to like this cast, and the logline has us intrigued, but let's just hope this finds Egoyan »

Bob Hoskins obituary

Actor associated with tough guy roles, but capable of playing the poodle as well as the pitbull

Bob Hoskins: Xan Brooks pays tribute

Bob Hoskins: a career in pictures

Plenty of better-looking performers than Bob Hoskins, who has died aged 71, have found themselves consigned to a life of bit parts. Short, bullet-headed, lacking any noticeable neck, but with a mutable face that could switch from snarling to sparkling in the time it took him to drop an aitch, Hoskins was far from conventional leading-man material. In his moments of on-screen rage, he resembled a pink grenade. But he was defined from the outset by a mix of the tough and the tender that served him well throughout his career.

As the beleaguered, optimistic sheet-music salesman in the BBC series Pennies from Heaven (1978), written by Dennis Potter, he was sweetly galumphing and sincere. Playing an ambitious East End gangster »

Oscar-nominated British actor Bob Hoskins passes away at 71

30 April 2014 5:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I'm hugely saddened to report that Oscar-nominated British actor Bob Hoskins -- the quintessential Cockney gent of latter-day cinema -- has passed away. Aged 71, he died in hospital following a bout of pneumonia. His wife, Linda, and four children issued a statement clarifying that the Londoner "died peacefully at hospital last night surrounded by family," and thanked well-wishers for their "messages of love and support." Hoskins' health had been declining for some time: he retired  from acting in 2012 after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. His last screen role was in "Snow White and the Huntsman." After supporting roles in such films as "Zulu Dawn" and a BAFTA-nominated turn in Dennis Potter's TV landmark "Pennies From Heaven," Hoskins' film breakthrough came in his late thirties with the role of conflicted East End crime boss Harold Shand in the 1980 gangster classic "The Long Good Friday," which earned him another BAFTA nod. »

Bob Hoskins dies

30 April 2014 5:49 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Bob Hoskins in The Long Good Friday

The much loved actor Bob Hoskins has died at the age of 71, according to his agent. Hoskins, though sometimes typecast as a cheeky Cockney chappie, was an actor whose talent shone through in the great diversity of roles he played, from Who Framed Roger Rabbit's hapless detective to the taxi driver out of his depth in Mona Lisa and the sinister, obsessive catering manager in Felicia's Journey. Despite failing health, he recently appeared in Snow White And The Huntsman.

The actor's career path was an unusual one. Coming from a working class background and leaving school with only one O-level, he worked as a window cleaner and got into theatre by accident after being mistaken for a professional actor. He was immediately acclaimed for his remarkable natural talent.

Hoskins also did some notable work on television, appearing in an acclaimed production of »
