Albert Finney Joins ‘Bond 23′

28 October 2011 9:28 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

After the relatively disappointing Quantum of Solace, crippled by the writers' strike, there are a lot of big hopes for Bond 23, which will be directed by Sam Mendes and may be called Skyfall. While we know very little reliable info about the story that will be featured in the film, the cast is shaping up to be capable of fulfilling those hopes. Daniel Craig returns as James Bond, and Judi Dench returns to play M. And in this installment we'll see one of M's powerful superior government officers, played by Albert Finney. We haven't seen much of Finney in a few years, as he has been battling cancer. His last big films were Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (a great performance) and The Bourne Ultimatum. Finney will be returning to the Bourne franchise as well, as he is cast [1] in Tony Gilroy's The Bourne Legacy. The news »

Q&A: Taking 'Shelter' With Michael Shannon

28 September 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

If you're just now hearing about Michael Shannon because he'll be playing General Zod in "Man of Steel," for shame. The actor has been building an impressive resume, playing unforgettable characters in films like "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead," "Bug" and "The Runaways." He received an Oscar nomination for "Revolutionary Road" as a former mental patient who opens his neighbors' eyes to their suburban folly.

His newest film, "Take Shelter," reunites him with his "Shotgun Stories" director Jeff Nichols. Shannon plays Curtis, a man having disturbing visions about the end of the world. Terrified for his family, he builds up the tornado shelter in their backyard as his life crumbles around him.

"Take Shelter" opens September 30. You can also catch Shannon on HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" and in the upcoming films "Premium Rush" and "Man of Steel" as Zod himself.

So did you have nightmares after making this?

No, I didn't. »

'Man of Steel' Star Michael Shannon Explains Superman Set Pics

7 September 2011 12:11 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

"Man of Steel" has just begun filming, and already filched photos of Superman and crew have been appearing online.

One in particular shows Michael Shannon as General Zod in what looks like a funky motion capture outfit. Well, paps might have found a way to infiltrate Superman's set, but you can't faze this Oscar-nominated Kryptonian.

While doing press for the Jeff Nichols movie "Take Shelter" (one of our must-see movies of fall) Shannon speaks openly about the leaked photos and how they affect acting -- or don't, as the case may be.

"It's pretty remarkable," he tells NextMovie exclusively. "I've shot exactly three days so far, and there's probably more photos of me in my ridiculous little motion capture suit that have leaked out onto the Internet than on most films that… the entire time I'm shooting, there wouldn't be pictures leaked out onto the Internet."

Cool Stuff: Sidney Lumet Art Exhibit in Denver, Colorado

7 September 2011 6:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Filmmakers like Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, Wes Craven, Edgar Wright and Steven Spielberg have made films that are so beloved, the fact we see fan art from them is expected. Then there's a whole other class of filmmaker who make amazing, but maybe not geek-centric, movies who regularly get the shaft. Thanks to one Denver, Colorado gallery, we can cross a name off the list. This Friday September 9 Laundry on Lawrence is hosting a show called The Machines Are Winning: A Tribute To Sidney Lumet which features 17 artists interpreting the work of the amazing director of films like Network, 12 Angry Men, Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico, Fail Safe, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead and more. Check out some of the images after the jump. A huge thanks to Omg Posters [1] for the heads up on this exhibit which takes place from 7-11 p.m. September 9 at Laundry on Lawrence, 2701 Lawrence St. »

Cinema Retro Covers Sidney Lumet Tribute At Lincoln Center

28 June 2011 10:19 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Lumet with his honorary Oscar. Shockingly, he never won a competitive Academy Award.

By Lee Pfeiffer

Yesterday the family of the late legendary film director Sidney Lumet, in association with the Film Society of Lincoln Center, hosted a tribute to Lumet at Alice Tulley Hall. Cinema Retro contributing writer Doug Gerbino and I arrived at Lincoln Center not knowing exactly what the program would consist of. However, as we are both great admirers of Lumet's work, we could not pass up the invitation to attend. The tribute turned out to be one of the most extraordinary film-related events we had ever witnessed. An extraordinary number of diverse talents contributed their personal memories of working with Lumet through often hilarious anecdotes. Screenwriter Walter Bernstein said Lumet saved his career by hiring him to write TV productions even though he was blacklisted at the time. Christopher Walken recalled how Lumet gently guided »

Lawrence O’Donnell’s Tribute To Director Sidney Lumet Includes An F-Bomb

27 June 2011 5:58 PM, PDT | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

Well, this one won't make the new owners happy. On MSNBC's Last Word tonight, a story about the career of Dog Day Afternoon director Sidney Lumet included a clip from his final film, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead. That film's considered a masterpiece, but it's also a film filled with graphic sex, violence and language--and one that would obviously need a bit of editing before airing some of it on a news channel like MSNBC. Or, perhaps not? In a tribute package that included classic clips like Al Pacino shouting "Attica! Attica!" and Peter Finch's "mad as hell" speech from Network, comes the last clip--Philip Seymour Hoffman in Devil, shouting "it's not fair, it's not f---ing fair," only without the dashes. »

Philip Seymour Hoffman Continues To Get Great Tail

3 June 2011 12:39 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As long as I live I'll be haunting by the opening shots of Before The Devil Knows You're Dead in which 'sex angel' Marisa Tomei is on all fours getting nailed by ... Philip Seymour Hoffman? This is the part in the accompanying score where the lovely romantic music deflates to a comic halt, throwing ice water on the "mood"

What?

This image came flashing back to me with the announcement that delicious honey Amy Adams will play his wife in The Master, a film that's supposedly about Scientology (however veiled) from the genius Paul Thomas Anderson.

The cast for that movie is looking topnotch: Laura Dern, Lena Endre, Adams, Joaquin Phoenix (and *just announced* Breaking Dawn's Rami Malek as the son-in-law of Adams and Hoffman. No word yet on who is playing his teenage wife.) 

But even geniuses like P.T. Anderson make inexplicable decisions somehow, since Hoffman will be »

A Summer-Long Foreign Horrorfest at AMC Theaters

22 April 2011 1:30 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

With the summer comes the deluge of big blockbuster franchises that threaten to drown out pretty much anything else that might happen to stumble into theaters. From May to July you can pretty much kiss anything without a huge budget and a franchise goodbye. Sorry romantic comedy lovers. Sorry drama addicts. Good news horror buffs, because if you happen to live near one of a given number of participating AMC Theaters (which you probably do at this point, they're everywhere now), you'll get to enjoy the 4-movie Bloody Disgusting Selects series of films sponsored by Bloody Disgusting, The Collective, and AMC.

The series kicks off on May 4th with Rammbock and carries on through the summer with the other 3 films: Yellowbrickroad, Cold Fish, and Atrocious. Additionally, the French (non-horror) film Le Herisson (aka Hedgehog) will also be showing courtesy of NeoClassics Films.

Sidney Lumet, 1924 - 2011

18 April 2011 12:53 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"Sidney Lumet, a director who preferred the streets of New York to the back lots of Hollywood and whose stories of conscience — 12 Angry Men, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, The Verdict, Network — became modern American film classics, died Saturday morning at his home in Manhattan. He was 86." Robert Berkvist in the New York Times: "'While the goal of all movies is to entertain,' Mr Lumet once wrote, 'the kind of film in which I believe goes one step further. It compels the spectator to examine one facet or another of his own conscience. It stimulates thought and sets the mental juices flowing.' Social issues set his own mental juices flowing, and his best films not only probed the consequences of prejudice, corruption and betrayal but also celebrated individual acts of courage."

"Nearly all the characters in Lumet's gallery are driven by obsessions or passions that range from the pursuit of justice, »

Five of Sidney Lumet's Lesser-Known Films Worth Seeking Out

14 April 2011 1:59 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Only days ago "The Deadly Affair" arrived at my doorstep, yet another of Sidney Lumet's films I had never seen before since having been born two-thirds of the way into the director's legendary career, it's always been a game of catch-up. Then again, it was that way for most in his field, even if they were contemporaries.

After passing away far too soon at the age of 86, Lumet leaves behind a half-century-long career that will no doubt be scrutinized for being inconsistent, a richly ironic assessment given that in person and on film, he was known as a straight shooter, and perhaps one of the only filmmakers who could say their final film ("Before the Devil Knows You're Dead") was as vital and strong as their first ("12 Angry Men"). However, that certainly isn't the only reason why Lumet was a rarity.

In a world full of auteurs, Lumet was a collaborator, »

The Legendary Sidney Lumet Passes Away

11 April 2011 6:39 PM, PDT | FilmInk.com.au | See recent FilmInk.com.au news »

"I never even think of myself as successful," director Sidney Lumet told Filmink in 2008 when he was promoting his dark crime drama Before The Devil Knows You're Dead. "How many movies have I made? 46 films? I'm surprised. All I do is work and then hope that it's good."   Lumet's work has been more than merely "good." Film fans everywhere were saddened to hear that the director died of lymphoma on April 9 at 86 years old leaving behind a remarkable legacy of work. A serious and relevant filmmaker, Lumet's 50-year film career began with the seminal 1957 drama 12 Angry Men which, in many ways, remained his signature work. »

Sidney Lumet, 1924 - 2011

11 April 2011 9:15 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

The filmmaking community lost one of the true greats over the weekend: New York based director Sidney Lumet died on Saturday at the age of 86.

With a vast body of work ranging from "12 Angry Men" in 1957 to his final film in 2007, "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead," there's no doubting that Lumet's influence on the movies industry was a profound one. After the jump, we're remembering the dearly departed director by looking back at some of our favorite Lumet pictures.

"12 Angry Men"

Lumet's adaptation of the beloved teleplay and stage play perfectly captured the increasingly intense and claustrophobic nature of the jury selection and verdict-reaching process, a film that was further enhanced by fantastic performances from acting legends like Henry Fonda, Jack Klugman and more.

"Serpico"

Al Pacino has made a name for himself playing some of the most ruthless gangsters in American cinema from Michael Corleone to Tony Montana, »

From his breakthrough jury room morality movie 12 Angry Men to his Pacino-propelled 1970s thrillers, Sidney Lumet was one of the great Hollywood craftsmen

Director Sidney Lumet dies aged 86

12 Angry Men (1957)

Fresh from his apprenticeship on the New York stage, Lumet made his screen debut with this claustrophobic morality play, casting Henry Fonda as the lone sane man on a jury that is being led by the nose. 12 Angry Men initially sputtered at the box office, a sore thumb in a mid-50s age of gaudy widescreen Technicolor. It was later selected for preservation by the Library of Congress.

The Pawnbroker (1964)

More anguished close-ups, high-stakes drama and high-contrast black and white. Rod Steiger gives an electrifying performance as the tormented Holocaust survivor, rattling around East Harlem and seeing ghosts on every subway car.

The Hill (1964)

Lumet upped sticks to the deserts of Libya for this drama about a brutal

Michael Shannon cast as General Zod in Superman reboot Man of Steel

10 April 2011 10:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have today confirmed that Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman reboot, now officially titled Man of Steel, has found its General Zod in the shape of character actor Michael Shannon, whose credits include 8 Mile, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, Boardwalk Empire and an Academy Award-nominated turn in Revolutionary Road.

In a press release issued earlier today, Snyder spoke of the casting: “Zod is not only one of Superman’s most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don’t. Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role.”

The Kryptonian General, who was portrayed by Terence Stamp in both Superman (1978) and Superman II (1980), had long been rumoured to appear in the Christopher Nolan-produced reboot as the primary villain, with Viggo Mortensen »

Hollywood Stars Pay Tribute To Lumet

10 April 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Directors Martin Scorsese and Woody Allen have paid tribute to legendary Hollywood filmmaker Sidney Lumet, who died on Saturday at the age of 86.

Lumet passed away at his New York home after a battle with lymphoma.

A host of movie stars have paid their respects to the late Lumet, with Goodfellas director Scorsese hailing his death as the "end of an era".

He says, "(Lumet was a) New York filmmaker at heart, and our vision of the city has been enhanced and deepened by classics like Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon and, above all, the remarkable Prince of the City."

Allen describes his old pal as "the quintessential" Big Apple director, adding, "I'm constantly amazed at how many films of his prodigious output were wonderful and how many actors and actresses had their best work under his direction.

"Knowing Sidney, he will have more energy dead than most live people."

Actor Al Pacino, star of Serpico and Dog Day Afternoon, urged film fans to "take good care of the (movies) he left behind", while Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who worked with Lumet on his final film, 2007's Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, credited the moviemaker as "a true master who loved directing and working with actors like no other".

Music mogul Quincy Jones has also offered his thoughts on his late collaborator's death, saying, "Sidney was a visionary film-maker whose movies made an indelible mark on our popular culture with their stirring commentary on our society.

"Future generations of filmmakers will look to Sidney's work for guidance and inspiration but there will never be another who comes close to him."

Jones scored a handful of Lumet's projects after meeting in 1965 while working on drama The Pawnbroker. »
