Watch The International Trailer For Stephen Daldry’s Trash

4 August 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few filmmakers have the Oscar pedigree of Stephen Daldry, whose past works include Billy ElliotThe Hours, The Reader and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (all of which have been nominated for Best Picture and/or Best Director). And so, though his upcoming film Trash doesn’t yet have a U.S. release date, it would be foolhardy to count it out of this year’s awards race.

In the film, scripted by Richard Curtis (About Time), “three poverty-stricken boys who discover something unusual, mysterious, and dangerous in a city dump.” The latest trailer for Trash, released through Universal Pictures Brazil, certainly maintains the thrilling, adventurous vibe that the film’s first preview gave off.

Though I can honestly claim to understand less than one-fifth of this international trailer, the Slumdog Millionaire-esque tone and impressive visuals paint Trash as another fascinating work from Daldry. And with Rooney Mara and »

Daldry talks 'Trash' in Motovun

28 July 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stephen Daldry also talks about his new Netflix-backed series, his first foray into episodic TV.

Stephen Daldry admits his new film Trash is likely to ruffle feathers because of “talking about poverty and corruption in Brazil.”

Daldry, speaking at the Motovun Film Festival in Croatia this weekend, said: “The reason I made this film is because it’s about the underbelly, the difficult side of Rio, the underexposed side of Rio.”

Trash, which is slate for its world premiere at the Rio Film Festival in October, is now in the final stages of post production for Peapie Films, Working Title and Universal. It follows the story of impoverished kids who scavenge on a trash heap in Rio who get embroiled in a political scandal when they find an important item in the trash.

Daldrey spent three years on and off in Rio. “It’s a country I feel in love with, they believe »

28 July 2014 2:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Check Out The First Trailer For Stephen Daldry’s Trash

22 July 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve heard very, very little about the latest film from Oscar favorite Stephen Daldry, who previously directed Billy ElliotThe HoursThe Reader and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (every film the director has been involved with has either been nominated for Best Director or Best Picture), but today brings the arrival of the first trailer for Trash, certainly a grittier and more unconventional venture from the helmer.

The movie, based on the book by Andy Mulligan, and scripted by About Time screenwriter Richard Curtis, tells the story of three street kids who survive by rummaging through a huge trash fill on the outskirts of a major city, searching through human waste and filth in hopes of finding food and other items necessary for their survival. One day, one of them finds a small leather bag with a wallet with some money and an ID card, a folded-up map, »

20 Things Harry Potter Film Supporting Actors Are Doing Now

18 July 2014 4:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures/NBC

Casting Harry Potter had to have been a little bit like playing Russian Roulette. You’re bringing in a group of largely untested child actors, and praying to the Cinema God that not only will they commit to an eight film series, but that they’ll grow into talented individuals and not get beaten by an ugly stick on their way through puberty. They dodged a bullet with the main trio, with Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint all turning out perfectly fine. They’ve got good heads on their shoulders and seem remarkably mature in their ability to pick roles that will work for them as adults.

But what about the rest of the cast? Because they weren’t just casting Harry, Ron, and Hermione — they had a school full of students to fill. So what happens to the actors who are part of such a huge franchise, »

Why Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar nomination for Planet of the Apes

17 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's the 1969 Academy Awards, and Walter Matthau and a tuxedo-clad chimp present John Chambers with an honorary Oscar for his work on Planet of the Apes. Viewed in retrospect it's one of the more surreal presentations in the ceremony's history, but this was something of a landmark event for the industry. It was only the second time the Academy had dished out a prize to make-up artists (William J Tuttle won four years earlier for 7 Faces of Dr Lao), and it highlighted the growing importance of Hollywood's backstage creative artists.

Fast-forward 45 years and prosthetics are giving way to digital pixels - for characters that require a complexity of movement and expression, performance capture technology gives a director the scope to execute their vision by marrying an actor's performance with visual effects. In its basic form, the actor will strap on a bodysuit that's wired up to a computer. All their »

16 July 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

From the press release:

The two films produced by Barry Navidi (The Merchant of Venice) and Robert Fox (The Hours), will be presented together on Sunday 21st September and followed by a Q&A with Academy Award winner Al Pacino that will be broadcast live via satellite to cinemas across the UK and Ireland. The unique event will be hosted by Stephen Fry.

Salomé is Oscar Wilde’s most controversial work, banned in London in the late 19th Century. This scintillating tale of lust, greed and revenge follows the legend of King Herod and his lust for his young stepdaughter, Salomé, and her sexual baiting of John the Baptist. Wilde’s adaptation has spawned multiple stage productions including an opera by Richard Strauss, »

Theatre Review: David Hare’s ‘Skylight’

8 July 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Stephen Daldry

Starring: Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy, Matthew Beard

Synopsis: On a cold London evening, teacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant, a successful restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their relationship only to find themselves stuck in a battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires. 

Among the tourists and unremitting chaos of Leicester Square lies Wyndham’s Theatre and David Hare’s tremendous understated, absorbing Skylight starring Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy and Matthew Beard.

This revival of the play sees Nighy return to the role of Tom Sergeant, the part he took over from Michael Gambon in its original 1996 National Theatre run. What makes this new production even more special is Carey Mulligan in her West End debut as Kyra Hollis. That’s not the end of the top talent either as Stephen Daldry directs, »

Happy Birthday Nicole & NathanielR?

Kidman's first Vanity Fair appearance in 1990 with the "Dead Calm" look

I can still hear her saying it...

Nathaniel. It's Nicole!"

...t'was one of my all time favorite life moments, interviewing her. Today twitter informed me that it was my 7th birthday there. By their count I'm almost old enough to start obsessing on movies. And, as Graham pointed out, that means I joined Twitter on Nicole Kidman's birthday. Was this intentional? I can't recall. For our faux shared anniversary, Catarina challenged me to share my single favorite Nicole Kidman photograph. Just one? I've selected seven in keeping with my twitter age.

My top seven (at the moment) are after the jump but before we get there, I just want to say that this challenge led me to Kidman pictures I'd never seen before like this one with Ed Harris from Bruce Weber! They didn't have any scenes together »

The Railway Man Hits Home August 12th

17 June 2014 2:16 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Railway Man flew a little too under the radar, but hopefully we can make up for that when it comes home on August 12th. The Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman vehicle based on the memoir of Eric Lomax had a lot of critics talking, but wasn’t quite the sort of thing to become the number one water cooler subject.

Such is the way of dramas about prisoners of war, especially long after the fact, but this one has a lot to recommend, not least just any chance to see Colin Firth. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’re exactly overloaded with special features, but you probably can’t expect too much here. Get the full info below, and be sure to check out the trailer above.

Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company are proud to announce the home entertainment release of Jonathan Teplitzky’s The Railway Man, »

Paddington Makes A Big Splash In New Trailer

12 June 2014 9:55 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The hilarious new trailer for Paddington has arrived. (along with some pretty hilarious mock-horror memes that have gone viral.)

Paddington is adapted from Michael Bond’s books for children, which have been published in 40 languages and sold 35 million copies. The story is about a young bear from Peru who longs to visit England and decides to travel to London. He reaches the huge Paddington Station and realises he is lost and alone in a big city that was barely what he had expected, but a sympathetic family adopts him and he finds the peaceful haven he had dreamt about – until a taxidermist sets her sights on him.

The first ever live action film inspired by Bond’s best-selling books, stars BAFTA Award- nominee Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Iris, Notting hill) as Mr Brown, Academy Award-winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man, Bridget Jones’s Diary) as the »

Los Bragas, Neymar Jr. Explore Online Off-Field Soccer Realm

2 June 2014 5:20 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madrid — Los Bragas, run by actress-producer-turned-director Alice Braga (“Elysium,” “I Am Legend,” “City of God”) and writer-director Felipe Braga (“Trash,” “Latitudes”), is seeking international broadcast TV outlets for “A Vida Fora dos Campos,” an intimate web/TV portrait of Brazilian soccer player Neymar da Silva Santos Jr. which marks Alice Braga’s directorial debut.

As the world girds up for June’s FIFA World Cup soccer tourney, “A Vida” (literally “Off-Field Life”) digital build takes soccer coverage to new levels.

Packing two seasons of six five-to-six minute episodes, first seen as web-segs, “A Vida” is produced by Njr, Neymar Jr.’s own label, and Los Bragas, marking Neymar Jr.’s entry into production. In April, using the content, the partners launched a Neymar Jr. YouTube channel, the first with original content co-produced by a soccer player himself, said Felipe Braga.

Grace of Monaco review: "What was Nicole Kidman thinking?"

2 June 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Olivier Dahan; Screenwriter: Arash Amel; Starring: Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth, Paz Vega, Milo Ventimiglia, Parker Posey, Derek Jacobi, Frank Langella; Running time: 103 mins; Certificate: PG

There are countless missed opportunities in Grace of Monaco, a sponsorship deal with Ferrero Rocher being chief among them. Like the choccies doled out by that cheapnik ambassador, this portrait of Grace Kelly 'the royal years' aspires to refinement and class when, in reality, it's just an afternoon sugar buzz for bored housewives. No wonder the Cannes glitterati turned up their noses, but you don't have to be a connoisseur to know this is a pile of Nutella.

What was Nicole Kidman thinking? For one thing she is two decades too old to be playing Grace Kelly from the late '50s to early '60s (the star was only 26 when she went from Hollywood's High Society to the House of Grimaldi). Kidman does »
