Eva Green in Talks to Star in ‘300: Battle of Artemisia’

16 December 2011 6:17 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Brothers Pictures and Legendary Pictures may have found their goddess. The studios are in negotiations with actress Eva Green to play Artemisia in the sequel “300: Battle of Artemisia.” In the follow-up to 2006’s “300,” the actress would play a “ruthless, gold-covered goddess who persuades Xerxes to amass his army and helps lead them into battle.” The story will be about the god-king Xerxes leading the army against a Greek general named Themistokles. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the battle is supposed to occur about the same time as the Persians battle the Spartans in “300.” Green is best known as Vesper Lynd in the James Bond film “Casino Royale.” She has also appeared in the “The Golden Compass,” “The Dreamers,” and “Kingdom of Heaven.” She recently just wrapped shooting Tim Burton-directed “Dark Shadows” with the star Johnny Depp. “300: Battle of Artemisia” will be directed by Noam Murro (“Smart People »

Gilbert Adair, 1944 - 2011

11 December 2011 9:23 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"Gilbert Adair, the acclaimed critic who had some of his own novels turned into successful films, has died aged 66," reports Catherine Shoard in the Guardian. "Adair won the respect of cineastes with volumes such as A Night at the Pictures (1985), Myths & Memories (1986), Hollywood's Vietnam (1981), Flickers (1995), Surfing the Zeitgeist (1997) and with his translation of the letters of François Truffaut (published in 1990). He was a prolific journalist, writing a regular column for the Sunday Times in the 1990s, as well as for this paper — last year he interviewed the French filmmaker Alain Resnais."

As a screenwriter, Adair will be remembered for his collaborations with Raúl Ruiz (The Territory in 1981, Klimt in 2006, Blind Revenge in 2010) and Bernardo Bertolucci (The Dreamers in 2003, based on his own novel, The Holy Innocents). Richard Kwietniowski's Love and Death on Long Island (1997) is based on Adair's novel.

In January 2010, Adair wrote in the Guardian, "I yield to »

Gilbert Adair obituary

9 December 2011 4:09 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Witty, self-deprecating writer with a passion for cinema whose work shone 'like sparklers in the autumn gloom'

In Gilbert Adair's And Then There Was No One (2009), the third of his pastiches of Agatha Christie's detective stories, a writer called Gilbert Adair is lacerated thus by a reader: "The point, Gilbert, is that you've always been such a narcissistic writer. Which is why you've never had the popular touch … Postmodernism is dead … Nobody gives two hoots about self-referentiality any longer, just as nobody gives two hoots, or even a single hoot, about you. Your books are out of sight, out of sound, out of fashion and out of print."

Such self-referential gambits have exasperated some readers, but in Adair's staunchly postmodern, self-deprecating hands, the manoeuvre was disarming. Adair, who has died aged 66 of a brain haemorrhage, had often enjoyed playfully rehearsing his own literary erasure. In the 1990s he »

Gilbert Adair: cinema's man of letters

9 December 2011 9:15 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In another era, Gilbert Adair would have written on Herodotus. As it was he focused his energies on an exciting young medium

Gilbert Adair was a unique and wonderful writer: a critic of elegance, brilliance, and unquenchable intellectual energy and curiosity. He combined the roles of cinephile and man of letters in a unique way, as well being a novelist, screenwriter, translator and pasticheur. His final works were a series of detective story spoofs, satirical and wittily observed variants on Agatha Christie entitled The Act of Roger Murgatroyd, A Mysterious Affair of Style and And Then There Was No One. These contrivances were treasured and eagerly awaited by his fans, and they demonstrated both a storyteller's gusto and a theorist's interest in narrator reliability and point of view. His 1992 novel The Death of the Author, a droll twist on Roland Barthes, is another example.

Gilbert Adair, acclaimed film critic and novelist, dies aged 66

9 December 2011 7:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Prolific journalist and author whose novels were often adapted for the big screen, has died

Gilbert Adair, the acclaimed critic who had some of his own novels turned into successful films, has died aged 66.

Adair won the respect of cineastes with volumes such as A Night at the Pictures (1985), Myths & Memories (1986), Hollywood's Vietnam (1981), Flickers (1995), Surfing the Zeitgeist (1997) and with his translation of the letters of François Truffaut (published in 1990). He was a prolific journalist, writing a regular column for the Sunday Times in the 1990s, as well as for this paper – last year he interviewed the French film-maker Alain Resnais.

It was in cinematic adaptation that he found wider fame: the 1997 film Love and Death on Long Island, starring John Hurt as mordant writer Giles De'Ath, and Jason Priestley as the teen star he strikes up a friendship with, was based on Adair's 1990 novel of the same name.

'Shame' opens strong at box office: Here's when you'll be able to see it

5 December 2011 9:08 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Steve McQueen’s Shame, the unsexy Nc-17 drama starring Michael Fassbender as a sex addict, grossed an estimated $361,000 from 10 theaters over the weekend, averaging $36,100 per location, according to early estimates. It’s a solid number when you consider David Cronenberg’s Crash starring James Spader opened to an estimated $738,000 in 42 theaters in 1996, and in 2004 Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers opened to $142,632 in five theaters while David Mackenzie’s Young Adam starring Ewan McGregor opened to $50,300 in nine theaters.

Though Shame has received mixed reviews from critics, Fassbender has Oscar buzz, which will propel a wider release throughout awards season. Boston, »

Shame, Michael Fassbender, the Oscars: The Academy vs. Nc-17 Movies?

27 October 2011 1:08 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Now that Steve McQueen's Shame has received an Nc-17 rating from the censors at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), some are concerned that the film's two leads, Michael Fassbender (right) and Carey Mulligan, may be penalized by the generally conservative membership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Oscar history, however, shows otherwise. An X rating — the pre-1990 equivalent to Nc-17 — didn't prevent John Schlesinger's Midnight Cowboy from earning seven Academy Award nominations, or from going on to win three Oscars: Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay (Waldo Salt) of 1969. Stanley Kubrick's 1971 mix of sex, violence, and politics, A Clockwork Orange, was initially slapped with an X rating; it garnered four Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. Despite Last Tango in Paris' much talked about butter-sex scene — offensive in its phoniness — Marlon Brando was one of the five Best Actor contenders »

Shame Embraces Nc-17 Rating; Will Oscar Voters Punish Fassbender?

26 October 2011 10:40 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There is no shame in earning an Nc-17 rating. Filmmaker Steve McQueen, when he made his deal for MPAA-signatory Fox Searchlight to release Shame (December 2), made it clear that he embraced the rating, which the ratings board officially gave the film this week. This is no surprise. Besides, Searchlight distributed 2004's Nc-17 The Dreamers, whose director Bernardo Bertolucci praised Searchlight for being willing to release the film with the rating: "It's a victory. And not just for me--it's a victory for freedom of expression." The erotic relationship drama starring Eva Green earned a respectable if modest $2.5 million stateside. Shame, with better reviews, should earn far more. It's an adult art film about a damaged, wounded man (Michael Fassbender) who is flailing and lost, »

Release Date: Jan. 10, 2012

Price: DVD $59.99, Blu-ray $79.98

Studio: HBO Home Entertainment/Warner Home Video

Steve Buscemi makes one thing perfectly clear in Boardwalk Empire: The Complete First Season.

HBO Home Entertainment’s period drama Boardwalk Empire: The Complete First Season boasts some serious credentials, led by the television series’ eight Emmy Awards, including one for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (Martin Scorsese, Taxi Driver), and a pair  of 2011 Golden Globes for Best Drama Series and Best Actor (Steve Buscemi, The Big Lebowski).

Aired on HBO in 2010, the TV show re-creates the glitter and decadence of 1920′s Atlantic City at a time when Prohibition proved to be a major catalyst in the rise of organized crime in America. Full of corruption, backroom politics, vicious power struggles and a fierce hunger for wealth, the show turns on Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Buscemi), Atlantic City’s treasurer. He’s also the town »

Boardwalk Empire Renewed for Season 3 by HBO

12 October 2011 10:49 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

HBO has announced the renewal of Boardwalk Empire, its Prohibition-era drama that follows the life of Atlantic City baron Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi). The show, which debuted last season with pilot directed by Martin Scorsese, has been an awards favorite, picking up multiple Emmys, SAG Awards, and Golden Globes for its well-received first season.

While telling the story of the power struggle over Atlantic City and Nucky's bid to hold on to control of the area, Boardwalk Empire has brought several historical figures into the fold (Al Capone, Arnold Rothstein, Lucky Luciano) as well as introduced intricate side plots featuring those in Nucky's orbit (Mrs. Schroeder, Jimmy, Chalky White), whether they want to be there or not. The show stars Buscemi (Fargo), Kelly Macdonald (No Country for Old Men), Michael Pitt (The Dreamers), and Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), and features the likes of Michael K. Williams (The Wire), Jack Huston »

Film News: Fox Searchlight Pictures Acquires Rights to ‘Shame’

12 September 2011 3:57 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – After snagging the Best Actor prize at the 68th Venice Film Festival, Michael Fassbender’s acclaimed performance in Steve McQueen’s drama, “Shame,” will be able to premiere on American screens in the near future. On Sept. 9, Fox Searchlight Pictures presidents Nancy Utley and Stephen Gilula announced that their studio had acquired U.S. rights to the film, while HanWay Films will handle international sales.

Shame” marks the second intimate collaboration between McQueen and Fassbender, who each earned raves for 2008’s “Hunger,” a galvanizing look at the last days of Irish republican hunger striker Bobby Sands. Whereas “Hunger” required Fassbender to drop a great deal of pounds, “Shame” entailed an entirely different but equally extreme level of physical commitment from the actor.

He plays a Brandon, a New Yorker whose sexual addiction causes him to live an isolated existence until a visit from his sister (Carey Mulligan) reawakens demons from his past. »

Edinburgh Film Festival 2011: Day 7 – Perfect Sense, A Better Life, Fast Romance

23 June 2011 4:39 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

There is always something exciting about a film festival; when you start out you don’t know what you’re going to get, and you may wander into a masterpiece without knowing a thing about it beforehand. However, the inevitable flipside of this is that you will more than likely come across a few real stinkers, and today I saw three bad movies in a row. Much as I love movies, three stinkers in a row can become painful, and by the end of the third I was sweating with frustration.

I was looking forward to the first, Perfect Sense, from Scottish director David Mackenzie. Two of Mackenzie’s movies have opened the Festival in the past, both of which I liked: Young Adam, in 2003, and Hallam Foe in 2007. His résumé is hardly perfect: in 2005 he brought Asylum to the Festival, which was pretty hammy. However Perfect Sense reunited him »

TV Review: Camelot; Arthurian, on the rocks

11 June 2011 12:25 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Review re-posted as the episode airs tonight on Channel 4 in the U.K.

The Arthurian legend is one of the most enduring of English folklore; forever being retold, re-imagined and updated for new audiences. In recent times we’ve had the dubious historical accuracy of 2004′s King Arthur movie, together with the family-friendly magical adventures of the BBC’s Merlin. Having found surprise success with Spartacus: Blood & Sand, Us cable channel Starz turn their attention to the Arthurian legend for a glossy co-production with Gk-tv that broadly follows the classic Le Morte d’Arthur version of the story — with a few alterations and flourishes. But does Camelot offer enough innovations to attract viewers who’ve been swamped by magic, knights, castles and swords since the turn-of-the-century?

Sadly, no. There’s nothing about Camelot that sets it apart as being very original or unpredicted; it’s just a competent retelling with a few twists. »

Eva Green sometimes feels like a ''porn actress''. The 30-year-old beauty is not afraid to bare all in her movies and admits she can't understand why sex scenes in films attract so much attention. She said: ''When I did 'The Dreamers' I was not aware when I was filming it that all the questions from journalists afterwards would only be about the nudity. ''I was asked all these questions about the sex scenes. I don't know why people make such a fuss. Sometimes I feel like I'm a porn actress.'' Eva - whose roles have »

Eva Green interview: Playing evil

Eva Green rose to fame as the Bond girl who won the heart of 007 in Casino Royale. Now she's back in more familiar territory as the elemental, mysterious Morgan in Camelot, she tells Elizabeth Day – dabbling in witchcraft and reinventing nudity

It is a sunny, blue-sky day when I meet the actress Eva Green. The London streets are peppered with cherry blossom and the heady scent of fake tan hangs thickly above the city like ozone. It is a day for white linen and flowing dresses and flip-flops. But when Green arrives, it is clear that she is not embracing the joys of spring time. Her tiny frame is swathed in black and dark grey and she is wearing a heavy coat over a lace blouse, jeans and boots. The pale flawlessness of her face is accentuated by jet-black hair and smudged eye-shadow the colour of coal dust. The overall »

From a masterpiece of film noir to classic Gene Kelly musical An American in Paris, French film critic Agnès Poirier chooses her favourite sets in the city

As featured in our Paris city guide

Les Enfants du Paradis, Marcel Carné, 1943-45

Penned by poet Jacques Prévert and featuring the enigmatic Arletty, dashing Pierre Brasseur and melancholic Jean-Louis Barrault, Les Enfants du Paradis takes place in Paris in the 1840s and tells the story of the contrarian love of Garance and Baptiste. One key scene takes place in the boulevard du Temple, known at the time as boulevard du Crime. "You smiled at me! Don't deny it, you smiled at me. Ah, life's beautiful and so are you. And now, I shall never leave your side. Where are we going? What! We've only been together for two minutes and already you want to leave me. When will I see you again? »

Eva Green Believes in Magic

13 May 2011 8:30 AM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Eva Green has developed an interest in sorcery.

The French actress began reading up on the art of magic after playing a sorceress in TV series "Camelot" and she now believes that magic really does exist and is all around her.

She said, "Real magic is everywhere. It's in the winds and the sun and the moon; the earth and the trees."

The former Bond girl - who in the show portrays Morgan, a princess who gives herself over to dark forces in pursuit of magic powers to attain her father King Uther's throne - thinks more people should make an effort to learn about sorcery.

She added to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, "People are not connected to nature anymore. My character in the series is trying to restore the pagan ways."

The 30-year-old beauty filmed some naked scenes for "Camelot" and she insists she is prepared to take her »

Bernardo Bertolucci thinks 8 1/2 would have been great in 3D

11 May 2011 1:00 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Bernardo Bertolucci is a high-art convert to 3D - and a big Avatar fan.

The Italian director of art house classics such as The Conformist and The Dreamers, said Wednesday that his next film, Io e Te (Me And You) will use 3D technology - despite having just two characters and a single setting in a cellar.

"I loved Avatar and I was fascinated by the 3D," Bertolucci told reporters at the Cannes Film Festival, where he is receiving an honourary award. "I started to think, why is 3D considered good only for horror or science fiction or these kinds of movies? I thought, if 8 1/2 by Fellini was in 3D, wouldn't it be great?"

Two other highbrow directors have also recently ventured into 3D - Wim Wenders with dance film Pina and Werner Herzog with The Cave of Forgotten Dreams.

Bertolucci, 71, said it was striking that "three European directors coming »
