Director Roger Michell, who brought us such films as Notting Hill, Changing Lanes and Morning Glory, takes us along for a “joy ride” of sorts with his new film – Le Week-end.
As we meet Meg (Lindsay Duncan) and Nick (Jim Broadbent), they are attempting to rekindle their relationship and save their marriage by returning to the ambiance and breathtaking beauty of gay Paris’. Having honeymooned there, they are both consumed by the notion that once back in Paris’, they can reconnect and their lives will return to the way they used to be…..
It seems that while incredibly excited about their travels, the idiosyncrasies that each have over-looked for many years, seem to be exacerbated in their new surroundings. Meg’s love of the “good life” is being tested, as Nick tries to stay on budget with their accommodations, sending her over the edge. As Meg
Directing a massive blockbuster is the dream, isn't it? Not always, it seems. Here are some directors who've dropped out of big projects...
The explosion of the DVD market, and of the current generation of American and international independent cinema, has sent movie bosses scouring the shelves and the planet for interesting directors. Said studios then try and pair those interesting directors with blockbuster movies (a trend that continues later this year with the rather excellent decision to give Gareth Edwards Godzilla to make). But things don't always work out, and ways are parted before a single frame of footage has been shot.
So then: what we've looked at here are examples of where interesting directors were hired for blockbuster movies, only for them to leave the project before the film in question was complete. We've avoided stories of directors not returning for sequels
Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2006, and a further 25 overlooked gems...
With all the major films that elbow their way into their cinemas every year, there's bound to be some casualties among the big hits. And just like any other year, 2006 was dominated by the likes of Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, The Da Vinci Code and Ice Age: The Meltdown. But in tandem, there were dozens of lesser-seen films which shuffled in and out of cinemas (or occasionally, didn't get a release in cinemas at all) without very many people noticing.
As we're sure you're aware by now, these lists aim to redress the balance a little, and hopefully introduce a few films from any given year that you may have missed. There are also one or two films that, although
We head back a decade to look at a few films that deserve more attention. Here’s our list of 25 underappreciated movies of 2004...
Think back to 2004, and you might dredge up hazy memories of the computer-generated fairytale sequel Shrek 2, Alfonso’s Harry Potter installment, The Prisoner Of Azkaban, or maybe Mel Gibson’s phenomenally successful Passion Of The Christ.
It’s rather less likely that you’ll remember some of the films on this list. You’re probably aware of the drill by now: we’ve gone back into our distant, beer-addled memories to find 25 of the less commonly-lauded movies from the year 2004.
Some of them did reasonably well at the time, but appear to have been forgotten since (especially the one eclipsed by its own internet meme), while others were coolly received by the public or critics (and sometimes
Ben Affleck's enjoyed a career resurgence as well as internet ire of late. Here's a look at a few of his underappreciated films...
Ben Affleck doesn't need us. He's got a directorial career of three strong movies from three outings. He has a movie star spouse. He has two Oscars, one for both his downstairs and upstairs toilet, and he gets to tell his kids that he's Batman without having to lie. Furthermore, it's scary to think how good the boxset of his directorial work is going to be in 30 years' time.
But the resurgence of the Affleck, culminating in his Best Picture winning movie Argo, and his casting as Batman in Batman Vs Superman, overlooks the fact that his CV is hardly short of really good films, really good choices, and some really good performances. Whilst most of the press he's
The singer stars alongside Dylan Edwards in Tom & Issy, which was shot entirely on a Nokia Lumia 1020.
It was directed by Roger Michell, whose past directorial credits include 1999's Notting Hill and 2002's Changing Lanes.
The film features tracks from Goulding's latest album Halcyon Days, including her current single 'How Long Will I Love You'.
The song has been released as this year's official Children in Need single and is currently within the Top 10 in the UK midweek chart.
Watch the official music video for Ellie Goulding's 'How Long Will I Love You' below:
Written by Stefan Georgiou and Sam Bern, who have recently finished their debut feature film Dead Car and been selected as Screen Internationals Stars Of Tomorrow, Tom And Issy follows the titular flatmates as Tom whisks Issy away from her unappreciative boyfriend to drive around London for the day daring each other to do things they’ve never done before. It culminates in an open mic night in a rooftop bar where Issy hopes to find it within herself to sing in public for the first time. It’s a story that captures the intricate complications and excitement of falling in love.
Shot entirely on a Nokia Lumia 1020, it was directed by Roger Michell, whose previous credits include Notting Hill,
The short film was helmed by Notting Hill / director Roger Michell who we interviewed recently for his movie Le Week-End which you can see here. It shows just how event Hollywood’s best and brightest can make a really effective short film with nothing more than a camera phone so if you’re inspired to make your own movie, get out there and do it!
Title: Tom & Issy Director: Roger Mitchel Writers: Stefan Georgiou and Sam Bern Cast: Dylan Edwards,
The film, written by Damian F. Slattery, will start shooting on location in Louisiana in spring 2014.
Harry And The Butler is the story of Harry (Sam Jackson), a one-time jazz virtuoso living in New Orleans who has given up on his dreams and now spends his days as the mechanic for a derelict rollercoaster and his nights in his makeshift home – a converted train caboose. When his former mentor bequeaths him a large sum of money, Harry – in a drunken celebration –decides to hire himself an aging,
Brolin seemed to be a solid choice. He certainly has the acting chops and the blockbuster experience as well as fitting the older mold that the studio was looking for. However, speculation on the negative press that his recent divorce from returning Man of Steel cast member, Diane Lane, began to circulate.
