Telluride: Gary Oldman Arrives as Instant Best Actor Frontrunner in ‘Darkest Hour’

For actor Gary Oldman, an Oscar nomination was elusive for many years. An Oscar win, however, could be around the corner.

The chameleonic star had dazzled for decades in an endless string of films — “Sid and Nancy,” “State of Grace,” “True Romance,” “Leon: The Professional,” “The Contender,” “Hannibal,” etc. — until 2011, when his work was finally recognized by the Motion Picture Academy. It wasn’t one of his trademark Baroque performances that got the call, but rather, his icy cool portrait of a British intelligence operative in Tomas Alfredson’s “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” The man has nothing if not range, and that range now extends to Sir Winston Churchill, about as larger-than-life as it gets.

In Joe Wright’s World War II drama “Darkest Hour,” which unspooled at the Telluride Film Festival Friday, Oldman’s showcase might be his finest hour. He digs into the towering role with uncanny resolve, fearless under gobs of makeup,

‘It’ Box Office Predictions Balloon to Record-Bursting $60 Million Opening
Box office trackers are extremely bullish on Warner Bros./New Line’s “It,” saying the horror film will bring good news to a movie industry in great need following a miserable August. Last week, the first round of tracking had the remake of Stephen King’s seminal horror tale making $50 million in its opening weekend. Now, those numbers have floated up to $60 million, a figure that would give “It” the biggest theatrical debut in horror movie history as well as the biggest opening for any film released in September. The record currently belongs to “Hannibal,” which made $58 million in its opening weekend in.

Comedown! The Top Ten Movie Psychopaths

Though the likes of Leatherface (Texas Chain Saw Massacre) and Freddie Kruger (Nightmare On Elm Street) are undeniably psychopaths, their affinity for carrying out murderous acts are not hidden beneath a veneer of seeming normalcy. We think the best (or perhaps worst) psychopaths look to be, at first glance, no different to you or anyone else! So to celebrate the release of Comedown on DVD on March 11th, we have put together a list of 10 psychopaths we think are more terrifying than a lunatic with knives for fingers!

10) Asami Yamazaki – Audition

When a middle-aged widower decides it is time he remarry, he is convinced by a friend to hold mock auditions to win the role of his new wife (isn’t that what every girl dreams of?) Inevitably, the chosen young woman also comes with a dark side, one that involves an insatiable appetite for torture using a wire saw.

Three New Teasers for NBC's Hannibal Series

Three international TV spots - hailing from Axn - for Hannibal hit the web today and you can find them after the jump.

Debuting here in the U.S. on NBC April 4th from showrunner Bryan Fuller, the series takes its cue from the writings of Thomas Harris and finds Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen playing the ol' cat and mouse game as FBI agent Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter, respectively.  Laurence Fishburne co-stars.

If you follow Fuller's Twitter feed, he let everyone know Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) was back on set ("set shrinking the Cannibal's head) to shoot more scenes for the series yesterday.  The actress committed to a role last December.

'Watchmen' Star Jeffrey Dean Morgan & Anthony Hopkins Take 'Solace'

After playing The Comedian in Zack Synder's film adaptation of Watchmen, it looked like Jeffrey Dean Morgan was poised for breakout success. But starring in a series of disappointing movies like The Losers, The Possession, and Red Dawn hasn't done much to convince the public that he's more than a poor man's American version of Javier Bardem. But hopefully this next project will put him back on the rise, as THR reports Morgan is joining Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell in a supernatural thriller called Solace. The film marks the English language debut of Brazilian director Afonso Poyart (Two Rabbits). Read on! As the iconic Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, the Oscar-winning Hopkins has experience playing someone with a peculiar specialty who is called upon to help stop a serial killer. He'll be doing something similar here, starring as a former doctor with psychic abilities who's recruited

A new 2-minute trailer for NBC's Hannibal

Last month NBC debuted a 30-second teaser for its upcoming serial killer series Hannibal, and now we have a new two-minute trailer, which gives us a much better idea of what to expect from Hannibal Lecter's latest screen incarnation.

Created by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies), Hannibal centres on the early relationship between the cannibalistic doctor and the man responsible for Lecter's initial capture, FBI Special Agent Will Graham. Mads Mikkelsen, best known to Western audiences for his turn as Le Chiffre in 2006's Casino Royale, steps into the role previously portrayed by Brian Cox (Manhunter) and, most famously, Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal), while Hugh Dancy (The Big C) portrays the criminal profiler Graham.

Also set to feature in the 13-part TV series are Caroline Dhavernas (The Pacific), Lara Jean Chorostecki (Beauty and the Beast), Aaron Abrams (The L.A. Complex), Hettienne Park (Young Adult), Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix

Fishburne's Crawford is described as a "tough cop who seems to have been born to hunt serial killers and lacking the type of empathy that informs the lives of both Will and Hannibal and knows he needs Will to be his bird-dog. His greatest mission is to stop sociopaths before they kill more -- even if that means sacrificing Will's psyche in the process." Sounds like a juicy role for Mr Fishburne, on his return to TV after exiting CSI.

Hugh Dancy will soon find Mads Mikkelsen to be very interesting in the trailer for NBC's Hannibal

  • JoBlo
If you haven't seen the trailer for NBC's Hannibal series, I'm here to bring it to your attention. Hugh Dancy may be the focus of the extended trailer, but Mads Mikkelsen is going to own the shit out of this show. The events of Hannibal are basically five pages pulled out of Thomas Harris' "Red Dragon" according to series creator, Bryan Fuller. As you will see in the trailer, Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter are working together with Graham having no knowledge of what is going on...

Hannibal International Trailer Paints Mads Mikkelsen As A Sympathetic, Helpful Cannibal

[Updated with information on international territory sales.*] The first teaser for upcoming U.S. TV show Hannibal left the titular character, played by Mads Mikkelsen, in the shadows, but a new, extended international trailer brings him into the light as a sympathetic, helpful psychiatrist. He is charged by FBI Agent Dr. Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) with helping troubled Agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) as he profiles a serial killer. Graham is presented as the darker half of the unlikely pair, with Dr. Hannibal Lecter the kindly, uninteresting civilian. That reflects some of the descriptive passages in Thomas Harris' novels that explored the earlier days of the characters, which is where the new show begins. One concern that pops up here is to what degree Hannibal will...

Doctor Gash's Top 10 Greatest Horror Movies... Ever! Wrap-Up

The Doctor Gash's Top 10 Greatest Horror Movies…Ever! series is in the books, and we've had an incredible response from you guys with tons of likes and great comments both here and on the Dread Central Facebook page.

We're going to take one last look at the 10, and you can feel free to keep the discussion going in the comments section.

I would have loved to include so many films on this list. Believe me, it was really tough to get it down to just 10. The top 8 films were easy for me to name; however, numbers 9 and 10 were very difficult because each film placed toward the end of the list meant it was another one I couldn't include. Some ones that I would have loved to include but just missed my cut were mentioned by many of you in the comments section and I thank you for that.

Full "Hannibal" trailer previews a stylish, bloody affair

  • Fangoria
Full
There's about as little new to a damaged authority figure returning to the field as there is to Hannibal Lecter, but against all odds, NBC's upcoming series looks and smells (will it taste?) fresh. Opening with the soothing sounds of Laurence Fishburne's voice, this much longer clip gives us an idea of how Hannibal plans to play out; that is, following the solo (but linked) adventures of Thomas Harris-created agent Will Graham and the notorious Dr. Lecter, and then watching them convene for consultation and psychiatric evaluation in between. Meanwhile, all manner of murder, flesh consuming, dreamy imagery and once again, Fishburne voice round out the proceedings.

The lovely look comes courtesy of Pushing Daisies and Dead Like Me creator Bryan Fuller. Hannibal premieres Thursday, April 4.
