Pride and Prejudice and Zombies review – undead breathe no life into revamp

3 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This gimmicky reworking of Jane Austen’s classic uses deadpan decapitations to satire the prim costume drama but its gags are ultimately unearned

This laborious single-joke movie could well convince you that the mashup is the single most overrated thing in popular culture. Based on the 2009 bestseller attributed to “Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith”, the film is an elaborate spoof of Pride and Prejudice, taking place in an alternative England where the undead roam the land. The haughty Darcy (Sam Riley) is a renowned zombie hunter and Lizzie (Lily James) a dazzling ninja warrior. You get the elegant badinage, and then you get the people with half-eaten faces getting their bonneted heads blown off. It’s meticulously acted with deadpan attention to form – as well acted, in fact, as any conventional Austen adaptation – and it could conceivably be read as a satire of the traditional middlebrow tea-time costume drama (Andrew Davies »

Europe’s Indie Film Biz More Open For Women to Launch Careers

9 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood and the global film business have a long way to go before approaching gender parity, but in Europe, the independent film biz has been a fertile place for women to foster careers. Government subsidies and national funding organizations that put an emphasis on art rather than commerce are among the factors helping women gain a toehold in the business. But as the Berlin Film Festival gets ready to unspool on Feb. 11, many acknowledge that inequities aren’t hard to find despite gains.

The U.K. has been a fantastic launchpad for female execs and creatives. Home-grown producers ranging from Elizabeth Karlsen (“Carol”) to Alison Owen (“Saving Mr. Banks,” “Me Before You”) to Debra Hayward (“Les Miserables,” “Bridget Jones’s Baby”) to Faye Ward (“Suffragette,” TV series “The Crown”) have mastered the indie financing game to bring top-notch product to screen, and the country has produced scribes such as Abi Morgan (“The Iron Lady, »

4 February 2016 1:44 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

20th Century Fox has given us an early sneak peek at its Super Bowl commercial for the upcoming biopic of British Olympic ski-jumper Eddie the Eagle. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

Eddie the Eagle follows the realisation of the childhood dream of Michael Edwards (a.k.a Eddie), and his unflinching determination to become Great Britain’s first Olympic ski-jumper. Reluctantly aided by former ski-jumper Bronson Peary as his coach, Eddie is unwavering in his quest to reach the 1988 Calgary Winter Games. Eddie the Eagle is an uplifting, inspirational story that celebrates human spirit, passion, and one man’s refusal to accept defeat.

Review: 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' is an agreeably silly mash-up

3 February 2016 12:40 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First and foremost, I can't believe this movie actually finally exists. In development since 1921 or thereabouts, this is one of those films that has had roughly 300 different directors attached since it was first announced. At one point, this was going to be a David O. Russell film with Natalie Portman starring, and I'm still not sure what that would have looked like. The thing is, when Seth Grahame-Smith first published his mash-up novel, built onto the skeleton of Jane Austen's classic, I'm going to bet he never imagined how long it would take for this to become a movie, or even that it would be one someday. It felt like a sort of English major goofing around, only to somehow see it become this publishing smash. And all credit to Grahame-Smith, who has made a lovely career out of bending and breaking icons, for actually seeing this through. What »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and 10 Other Adaptations That Jane Austen Never Would Have Anticipated

2 February 2016 2:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy has been told again and again onscreen, and each adaptation has in its own way addressed themes of class, social etiquette and romance that Jane Austen wove into the 1813 classic, Pride and Prejudice. But now Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, in theaters Feb. 5, introduces a whole new slew of themes: the undead, for example, and martial arts and lots and lots of blood and gore. The film has Cinderella star Lily James playing Elizabeth, who in this version just happens to be leading a small army of sword-toting society women in »

Taron Egerton Says 'Kingsman 2' Is Going Global

27 January 2016 8:17 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last year's Kingsman: The Secret Service was a surprise hit. While no one expected it to flop, of course, folks didn't know what to expect. It was based on a graphic novel that hadn't crossed over into the mainstream. It was Rated-r. It starred a fresh face in Taron Egerton and a gentlemen most people associate with either stuffy British dramas or Bridget Jones movies, Colin Firth. So when it came out to mostly-positive reviews, and earned a global haul of $410 million, there was much to celebrate.

Naturally, talk of a sequel sparked, and soon thereafter a follow-up became official. Not much news has come from the production since, but Egerton recently chatted with Collider about what's in store for fans longing for Kingsman 2.

With 'Kingsman,' we’re shooting in the summer at present. There’s a script, it’s brilliant. Obviously there’s only so much I »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 30-21

9 January 2016 4:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We’ve reached the near mid-point of this Definitive List; 20 down, 30 to go. As we move forward, the story of “boy meets girl” becomes more complicated, as plenty of stumbling blocks stand in the way: lack of experience, insecurity, unsupportive parents, and, as in most cases, ego. So, when we watch all these films, what do we learn? Hundreds of romantic comedies end happily, but none end in the same way. Perhaps there’s a method to the madness, but the more we tread through these highlights, the more it’s clear that to make an impact, you have to change the game or perfect the existing one.

#30. Bull Durham (1988)

Baseball movies had worn out their welcome a bit in the mid-80s and audiences weren’t clamoring for a romantic comedy based around the national pastime. Enter writer/director Ron Shelton, who decided to write a film based on »

Breaking News: Mindy Kaling Likes Rom-Coms, and Here Are Her Top Picks

6 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This morning, Mindy Kaling tweeted a link to a list of her favorite romantic comedies, apparently an idea suggested to her by her friend (?) B.J. Novak (#It'sComplicated). Mindy posted her top nine, begging the question: What's the tenth?? There are a lot of Mindy classics on here, including You've Got Mail and Bridget Jones's Diary, but then, straight out of left field (ha ha!), A League of Their Own! Is that movie even a rom-com? Seems to fall less in the Romantic Comedy category and more in the category of Movies With a Strong Female League. Is it a romance between sisters? A romance between friends? A romance between Bill Pullman limping back from the war and Geena Davis? Decide for yourself. Here's the full list: Bridget Jones' DiaryA movie as good as the book, and in some ways even better because Hugh Grant and Colin Firth were better »
