Philip Seymour Hoffman's Last Days

25 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In honor of Philip Seymour Hoffman's final film, A Most Wanted Man, hitting theaters today, we are reprinting David Browne's cover story on the actor's final days from our February 27th issue. 

Slouched in the front row of the labyrinth Theater Company's performance space in New York's West Village last May, Philip Seymour Hoffman was his typical focused, superdisciplined self. In the intimate 90-seat theater, Hoffman – always dressed in one or another of his seemingly interchangeable baggy pants and sweaters – was relentlessly pushing the cast and crew of the play he was directing, »

Cannes Debuts Two Posters for 'Macbeth' with Michael Fassbender

14 May 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following a couple first look photos at the Shakespeare adaptation Macbeth from director Justin Kurzel, the period drama is showing off footage at the Cannes Film Market and looking for distributors. Now we have some bits of the hype machine overseas as two character teaser posters have surfaced online featuring stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. The film has already turned heads enough to have Kurzel team up with Fassbender again for the video game adaptation Assassin's Creed, but it will probably be awhile before we see any footage. In the meantime, these posters, especially Fassbender's is great. Look! Here's the Cannes posters for Justin Kurzel's Macbeth from See Soundit (via The Playlist): Macbeth is directed by Justin Kurzel (The Turning, The Snowtown Murders) and written by Todd Louiso (Hello I Must Be Going, Love Liza, The Marc Pease Experience), based on William Shakespeare's classic play of the same name. »

First Look: Michael Fassbender Holds Marion Cotillard in 'Macbeth'

18 April 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While Natalie Portman was once slated to star alongside Michael Fassbender in the latest big screen adaptation of the classic William Shakespeare play Macbeth (or "that Scottish play" for all you theater folk), it's Marion Cotillard who ended up in the lead role as the lady of a Scottish lord who aspires to be king. Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel, who directed a segment in the Aussie omnibus The Turning, is at the helm of this feature adaptation, and we have two first look photos that look gorgeous. One features Fassbender embracing Cotillard, while the other has General Macbeth clearly ready for battle. Look below! Here's the first look photos from Justin Kurzel's Macbeth from The Daily Mail: Macbeth is directed by Justin Kurzel (The Turning, The Snowtown Murders) and written by Todd Louiso (Hello I Must Be Going, Love Liza, The Marc Pease Experience), based on William Shakespeare's »

Berlin Film Review: ‘A Long Way Down’

11 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nothing says comedy like “A Long Way Down’s” contrived meet-cute among four strangers who’ve all climbed to the top of the same tall building to commit suicide on New Year’s Eve. Pierce Brosnan’s character ruined his life by indulging an underage fling, Toni Collette’s feels “helpless,” Imogen Poots’ probably just wants attention, and Aaron Paul’s seems upset that “Breaking Bad” is over. Luckily, these desperados have each other, which evidently worked for Nick Hornby as a novel, though in movie form, it’s worse than tacky, trivializing depression for a handful of easy laughs and pop-psychology platitudes. Euro auds might buy it, but the pic will hit the pavement hard abroad, no doubt swan-diving into VOD.

Like a cross between a warm-and-fuzzy support-group hug and one of those infernal Garry Marshall-directed holiday ensemblers, this ingratiating adaptation of Hornby’s fourth novel has been »

This Week's Cover: The life and legacy of Philip Seymour Hoffman

5 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The sudden death by apparent overdose of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman stunned Hollywood and left his family, friends, and colleagues shattered. In this week’s cover story, EW pays tribute to Hoffman, widely considered the greatest screen and stage actor of his generation.

Film critic Owen Gleiberman traces the arc of the Oscar-winning actor’s tragically curtailed career, exploring his ability, in role after role, to plumb his own depths to bring often deeply flawed characters to vivid life and to “lay bare the things that make people tick” — an emotionally wrenching process that clearly took a personal toll on the actor. »

Your Top Three: Philip Seymour Hoffman Movies

3 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. One thing that keeps being said of Philip Seymour Hoffman is that it's difficult if not impossible to pinpoint his greatest performance. It's true, he was excellent in everything, even if the movies themselves weren't good. Many have cited how he's the only good part of Along Came Polly or how he elevated blockbusters like Mission: Impossible III and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire -- and even Twister long before we knew him by name. For every obvious highlight of his career (Capote; The Master; Almost Famous) there are tons of smaller roles and movies worth noting, from Scent of a Woman and The Talented Mr. Ripley to Love Liza and Owning Mahoney...

Philip Seymour Hoffman obituary

3 February 2014 4:32 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor and director who could imbue the many wretches, prigs and braggarts he played with a wrenching humanity

Philip Seymour Hoffman, who has died aged 46 of a suspected drugs overdose, had three names and 3,000 ways of expressing anxiety. He was a prolific and old-fashioned character actor, which is not a euphemism for "odd" – it means he could nail a part in one punch, summoning the richness of an entire life in the smallest gesture. And, yes, he could also look splendidly odd, with his windbeaten thatch of sandy hair, porcine eyes and a freckled face that would glow puce and glossy with rage. His acting style was immune to the temptations of caricature. His rise in the 1990s coincided with the emergence of a new wave of American film-makers, and his versatile, volatile talent became integral to some of the most original Us cinema of the past 20 years.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Opened Up About Drugs Long Before Death

2 February 2014 12:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The news of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death at 46 of an apparent drug overdose shocked Hollywood on Sunday, but his struggle with drugs started more than two decades ago.

Last May, Hoffman completed a 10-day detox for drug abuse, which included snorting heroin. He told TMZ then that he checked himself into rehab after using heroin for about a week after being clean for 23 years.

The thesp first went public with his history of drugs in 2006, during a “60 Minutes” interview, where he detailed what he experienced while fresh out of New York University’s drama school, lured by the fast life of the city.

“It was all that [drugs and alcohol], yeah, it was anything I could get my hands on… I liked it all,” he said.

However, Hoffman recognized early that he needed to stop.

“I went [to rehab], I got sober when I was 22 years old. You get panicked… and I got panicked for my life. »
