Trailer for Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ keeps focus away from supporting cast

27 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Hours and The Reader director Stephen Daldry is back with a new project, this one set in the slums of Rio.

Titled Trash, the film is Daldry’s fifth feature-length directorial effort. The film itself is an adaptation of Andy Mulligan’s 2010 novel, with three newcomers in the lead roles in Luis Eduardo, Rickson Tevez, and Gabriel Weinstein. Richard Curtis wrote the screenplay, and the supporting cast includes Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura, and Rooney Mara.

The film’s synopsis is as follows:

When two trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums find a wallet in amongst the daily detritus of their local dump, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael and Gardo, realize that what they’ve found must be important.

This is Daldry’s first »

Watch: First U.S. Trailer For Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ Starring Rooney Mara, Wagner Moura & Martin Sheen

26 August 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Stephen Daldry occupies a rarefied position. He is one of the few filmmakers to have been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director four times in a row and for his first four films: “Billy Elliott,” “The Hours,” “The Reader” and “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” (three of the four were also nominated for Best Picture). Perhaps after years of Oscar-bait material —he has directed six actors in Oscar-nominated performances, namely Julie Walters, Nicole Kidman, Ed Harris, Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet, and Max von Sydow— Daldry has switched gears for “Trash” a movie set in the slums of Rio with big stars cast in supporting roles.

New Trailer Introduces Nicole Kidman As Werner Herzog’s Queen Of The Desert

3 July 2015 5:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The gender gap in Hollywood may be something that is only now being openly discussed, but it has never really been much of a secret. While progress can be seen, slowly creeping into many genres, it is perhaps the biopic that seems to be desperately clinging on to an unconscious love of white men. Every year, we are bombarded with tales of heroic, interesting and complex men – towering historical figures that have shaped and influenced the world we live in. In fact, if you drew your information from cinema only, you could be forgiven for believing that women have contributed very little – such is the extent of erasure on display. You might even get quite excited about the latest film from writer-director Werner Herzog, titled Queen Of The Desert.

Starring Nicole Kidman, the film tells the story of Gertrude Bell, and her fascinating life spent travelling and working as a »

Michael Fassbender looks nothing like Steve Jobs: 7 actors who don't resemble real-life counterparts

2 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Say what you like about Ashton Kutcher's Jobs movie, but it did hold one ace up its sleeve that the Danny Boyle-directed biopic doesn't - an actor who actually resembles the character they're playing.

We take a look at a handful of stars who don't look anything like the real-life people they played.

1. Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs

As brilliant an actor as the Shame star is, it's clear from the trailers for Danny Boyle's biopic that little has been done to make Fassbender look like the man he's portraying. Ashton Kutcher has him beat in that department (as does Noah Wyle if you go all the way back to Pirates of Silicon Valley), but with the talent involved here we're expecting Steve Jobs to be a cut above Jobs.

Intriguingly, prior to Fassbender's casting Christian Bale was circling the role before bowing out due to worries »

Watch: Nicole Kidman Fearlessly Takes on Sensual 'Strangerland' (Exclusive Video Interview)

1 July 2015 7:48 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses, from her Oscar-winning role as a depressed Virginia Woolf in "The Hours" and warbling woman of the night in "Moulin Rouge!" to the grieving mother in "Rabbit Hole," aggressive newswoman on the rise in "To Die For," and sexy turn in "Paperboy." I talked to her on a chilly Sundance balcony right before her latest film "Strangerland" made its debut in the World competition.   "Strangerland" is a gorgeously moody outback thriller shot in Alice Springs about a pharmacist (Joseph Fiennes, replacing originally cast Guy Pearce) and his wife (Kidman) who move to a new town after their sex-crazed 15-year-old daughter has an affair with a teacher. They haven't had a chance to settle down when the girl and her younger brother vanish during a dust storm, presumably into the desert, spawning all sorts of talk and suspicion as the town police chief (Hugo Weaving) tries to. »

He’s attached to make a film about legendary Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev.The HoursDavid Hare – who also wrote The Reader, in which Fiennes appeared, is at work on the script for the director and his regular producing collaborator Gabrielle Tana.

The team has the rights to Julie Kavangh’s biography Nureyev: The Life. His celebrated dance career saw him sharing the Royal »
