Watch: Clive Owen Stars In Spanish Burger King TV Spot, Still Less Humiliating Than 'King Arthur'

30 December 2011 5:59 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Clive Owen is a respected actor, who starred in a number of acclaimed theater productions in the U.K. before going on to become a major TV star, thanks to Stephen Poliakoff's "Close My Eyes" and the popular TV series "Chancer." After starring in Mike Hodges' surprise hit "Croupier," he became a fully-fledged movie star too, with supporting roles in "The Bourne Identity" and "Gosford Park" turning into lead roles, opposite Angelina Jolie in "Beyond Borders," in Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City," and an Oscar-nominated turn in "Closer." He even starred in one of the very best films of the last decade, Alfonso Cuaron's astonishing dystopia "Children of Men." But things haven't been so great of late. Starring vehicles like "Duplicity," "The International" and "The Boys Are Back" underwhelmed, and even a decent performance in an underrated film like »

Julian Fellowes: 'If you are lucky you have your moment'

17 December 2011 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A clutch of awards, a peerage and a Christmas Day Downton Abbey special made this a dream year for the programme's creator

Like all writers, Julian Fellowes sometimes dreamed of a year like this one, in which he has won not only four Emmys for his series Downton Abbey, but has also been created a life peer. Still, he never quite expected it to happen. Success came late to him.

He was a jobbing character actor when, aged 50, Robert Altman invited him to develop the script ideas that became Gosford Park, the film that won him an Oscar for best screenplay. In the 10 years since he has rarely looked back.

Sitting in a Chelsea hotel, he recalls something Albert Finney said to him before success had come his way. "Finney said: 'You're the sort who believes you have never been given a chance to show what you can do.'" Fellowes says, »

Downton Abbey Christmas special accused of fashion faux pas

16 December 2011 4:27 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Expert claims costume drama's dress sense is woefully out of step with the times

It is nine days until the nation settles down on the sofa to watch the Downton Abbey Christmas special but a row is already brewing over alleged fashion faux pas on the eagerly anticipated ITV1 drama.

At stake is the reputation of Downton Abbey's carefully costumed characters, with one "expert" claiming that the show's fashion sense is woefully out of step with the times and that the show's army officers fail the military moustache test.

Tony Jackson, former editor of Shooting Times magazine, seized on a publicity still for the two-hour special which showed the men of the house going on a pheasant shoot wearing leather gaiters.

"The episode is set in 1919-1920, but the guns are dressed in the garb of the 1890s. No driven game shot in the 20s would have been seen wearing leather gaiters, »

Fellowes Creating Wind In The Willows Musical

9 December 2011 8:11 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Gosford Park writer Julian Fellowes is creating a musical adaptation of classic tale The Wind In The Willows for the London stage.

Fellowes is teaming up with composers George Stiles and Anthony Drewe for the new West End project.

He says, "The Wind in the Willows is one of our greatest classics and as true and entertaining now as it has ever been. I am delighted and tremendously flattered to have been asked to write the book (narrative) for the new musical.

"In fact, I suspect this is something I've been wanting to do subconsciously for many years."

It is not yet known when or where the musical will debut. »

New York Film Critics Awards: Oscar Precursors, Yes; Snooty and Artsy, No

30 November 2011 12:48 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Julianne Moore, Far from Heaven For decades, the New York Film Critics Circle Awards have been considered a precursor of the Academy Awards. Movies, performers, directors — and later cinematographers and screenwriters — singled out by the Nyfcc usually have gone on to receive Oscar nominations, oftentimes the golden statuette itself. The New York critics awards also have the reputation of being "snooty" and "artsy." Are they? When it comes to serving as a precursor of the Academy Awards, the answer would have to be a resounding Yes despite a number of Nyfcc winners eventually bypassed by (most of) the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voters. As for the Nyfcc's "artsy" choices … Well, that depends on your idea of "artsy." If choosing John Ford's box-office disappointment The Informer as Best Film of 1935 makes the New York critics artsy, then they were. If selecting a couple of non-Hollywood British actresses (Celia Johnson, »

Shame, Terrence Malick: New York Film Critics Awards 2011 Predictions

29 November 2011 12:18 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Michael Fassbender, Shame Generally a mid-December event, the New York Film Critics Circle will announce its 2011 winners in late November — today, Nov. 29, to be exact. Who will win? Well, who knows… But let's take a guess. Or rather, a few guesses. The process of elimination technique: Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar and Steven Spielberg's The War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn have no chance of winning for Best Film or — in the case of Tintin — Best Animated Feature. Not among the New York critics. Can't imagine Gotham Award winner Felicity Jones taking home the Best Actress award for Drake Doremus' Like Crazy, which won the hearts and minds of Sundance jury members, but generally hasn't received great reviews elsewhere. Mike Mills' Beginners is another Gotham Award winner that doesn't have much of a chance in the Best Film category. And I'd »

A New ‘Brave’ Trailer from Pixar

21 November 2011 8:45 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Brave, Pixar’s summer 2012 offering, has a new trailer for you to enjoy.

Click here to view the embedded video.

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an »

Doctor Who: who will play the big-screen Doctor?

19 November 2011 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With a film version of Doctor Who in the pipeline, who are the likely candidates to step into the Doctor's shoes?

Director David Yates has revealed that a film version of Doctor Who is being planned, and that the BBC franchise will go through "quite a radical transformation to take it into the bigger arena". Yates and producer Jane Tranter are currently hunting a screenwriter, but what we're really keen to know, of course, is which actor might play the big-screen Doctor. It's a wide-open field...

The Bookies' Tips

Boring! William Hill has installed David Morrissey as 6/1 favourite, the actor having once played a Doctor-of-sorts in a 2008 Christmas special. Second favourite Chiwetel Ejiofor (7/1) would make an intriguing choice as the character has for 40-odd years been white; Rhys Ifans would be the first Welsh Doctor (20/1) and Chris Martin (33/1) the first incumbent rock star.

Noth To Star In New Titanic Miniseries

11 November 2011 11:01 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sex And The City star Chris Noth has signed on to star in a new Titanic TV mini-series about the construction of the 'unsinkable' ship.

Noth will play banker John Pierpont Morgan in the 12-part drama, Titanic: Blood and Steel, with Scream star Neve Campbell portraying a New York reporter and Gossip Girl actor Kevin Zegers serving as an engineer.

The group recently jetted to Dublin, Ireland to shoot the show and Noth already believes the drama will be a big hit.

He tells the Irish Times, "Most dramas have all been about the sinking. We are about the birth of it, the promise before it. The expectation was so intense, of what it was and what it could be."

Titanic: Blood and Steel will debut in the U.S. on what will be the 100th anniversary of the ship disaster next April.

The series is one of many projects planned for the 2012 anniversary - Gosford Park writer Julian Fellowes is creating a six-part drama about the heart-wrenching final hours aboard the Titanic, which sank after hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage across the Atlantic in 1912. »

Tom Hollander: confessions of a lazy actor

4 November 2011 5:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Tom Hollander's TV comedy Rev was a surprise hit – even the Archbishop of Canterbury is a fan – so why does the actor say he's a 'classic could-do-better person'? As a new series hits our screens, Simon Hattenstone finds out

I'm standing outside a greasy spoon in Notting Hill waiting for Tom Hollander. It's surprising that he's chosen a place like this – after all, he's hardly known for his working-class roots or roles. You're more likely to find him playing an aristocrat fallen on hard times (Gosford Park), a well-spoken toad of a politician (In The Loop), a right royal pain in the arse (the Duke of Windsor in Any Human Heart). In fact, anything but working class.

A few minutes later, a short scruffy man pants up the street, half walking, half running, and wholly apologetic. "I'm so s-s-s-sorry." He's so sorry he can't get the words out. Turns »

[Review] Tower Heist

3 November 2011 9:00 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Josh Kovacs takes care of his own—it’s his job as the manager of a luxury apartment complex in the heart of New York City. With company policy refusing employees from accepting tips, his workers must treat every resident with the utmost care, compassion, and patience. Josh knows every bellhop, cleaning lady, bankrupt squatter, billionaire Wall Street mogul, and septuagenarian lothario within this glass palace and he treats all as family. Just a guy from Astoria, there is something kind and generous to Kovacs that rubs off on all he touches—an unwavering trust in the people he holds close. So, when Penthouse tenant Arthur Shaw is arrested for a supposed Ponzi scheme that conveniently wipes out the life savings of every complex employee, Josh still holds strong. For him, even an inkling of the titular Tower Heist he will hatch is non-existent. Sadly, we must wade through half a film before it is. »

Straight from Afm, we’ve got the first synopsis and promo image for Paul W.S. Anderson’s (Resident Evil) disaster film Pompeii.

The film takes place in ancient Rome and centers on a young slave who races to save the woman he loves and his best friend from the violent eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, which threatens to destroy the entire city. Anderson is directing from a script by Lee Batchler, Janet Scott Batchler (Batman Forever), and Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park).

Quick Shooter: A Clint Eastwood Profile (Part 5)

22 October 2011 9:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood in the fifth of a five part feature (read parts one, two, three and four)...

“Maybe the title of Space Cowboys [2000] is a bit misleading because it is mostly about the pioneers of space,” stated Clint Eastwood when discussing the story about four former test pilots from the 1950s who decades later get an opportunity to go into outer space. “We were not really cowboys, but these men who did all the pioneering in the 1950s were going to the frontier of space in planes they were not sure could make it. They were being rocketed along on the ground faster than the speed of sound to see if the human body could take it, so I would say that the film is something of a homage to those gentlemen.” The action thriller with a production budget of $65 million stars Clint Eastwood, »

18 October 2011 7:52 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

London film festival trailer trash

15 October 2011 4:08 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Fernando Meirelles's 360 makes for a disappointing start to the London film festival and Jude Law can't be bothered dressing up for the red carpet

Sandra's revolutionary exit

Despite London's position as a key city for world cinema, global ensemble piece 360 wasn't the best of openers for the 55th London film festival. The film, directed by Fernando Mereilles, is too bitty and fragmented, never allowing a character, setting or storyline to develop before nipping off on some tangential, frustrating bit-plot. We're all connected, says the film's schematic screenplay, right? On opening night, ran the joke at the after-party, half the BlackBerry users in the industry weren't. Outgoing Lff director Sandra Hebron has had a great record with her opening galas over the last 10 years, showcasing distinctive work even when the choices have been eccentric (Fantastic Mr Fox) or downers (Vera Drake). She's given us Frost/Nixon, The Constant Gardener, The Last King of Scotland, »

Yes, No, Maybe So: "Albert Nobbs"

13 October 2011 8:36 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's our tradition here at the Film Experience to manage our expectations for new movies by forcing ourselves into yes, no, maybe so breakdowns of trailers. Since we're obviously a yes on Albert Nobbs  --"Glenn Close is not going to be ignored, Fan"-- for reasons of genesis, Oscar, Lgbt loyalty, and its Glennderful nature and since we've talked about the movie enough without yet seeing it, let's do things differently. This Trailer begs for a different sort of compartmentalization. It's almost like a trailer in four acts. Is it purposefully channelling its own internal identity crisis?

They had personal trainers in 19th century? Aaron Johnson is comfortable naked...

It starts out like a frothy period comedy 0:01-0:41 (oh haha!. Remember how much you love Downton Abbey and Gosford Park?!)

Glenn isn't nearly as willing to take her clothes off!
