Hugh Grant Turns From Writer To Teacher In Trailer For The Rewrite

23 January 2015 12:56 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For his next romcom, Hugh Grant has reunited with director Marc Lawrence to bring his foppish British charms to another light caper, The Rewrite. This collaborative duo are more prolific than you might think, having previously worked on Two Weeks Notice, Music and Lyrics and Did You Hear About the Morgans? Which leads to the inevitable question, will their next affair venture into new territory?

Ahead of its February release a new trailer has arrived online – so we can hazard a guess at how this might turn out. Keeping in the tradition of the roles he tackled in the aforementioned movies, Grant plays a stubborn, out-of-sorts type who rallies against ‘the man’ and pursues a woman who’s kooky and unorthodox (i.e. she’s probably got dreams.) This time he’s out-of-work screenwriter, Keith Michaels, who once won an award and has since fallen on his luck. So, when »

'The Rewrite' Trailer Starring Hugh Grant

23 January 2015 12:19 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A down-on-his-luck writer lands a teaching job that could change his life in the first trailer for The Rewrite. Hugh Grant reunites with director Marc Lawrence for the fourth time, following their collaborations on Did You Hear About the Morgans?, Music and Lyrics and Two Weeks Notice. Their latest dramatic comedy delves into the world of screenwriting, following a once-famous scribe.

Once upon a time, Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant - About a Boy, Love Actually) was an Award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, but divorce and a string of unsuccessful films have left him with nothing but bad debts and blank pages. So when his agent arranges a job as guest screenwriting professor at a remote university in upstate New York, a desperate Keith can't say no. Initially hoping to give minimal effort to actual teaching so he can focus on his next script, Keith unexpectedly finds himself becoming invested in his students lives, »

Hugh Grant Blesses Us with a New Romantic Comedy

23 January 2015 12:10 PM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

It’s like the rom-com gods have answered our prayers. Ever since Love Actually and Music and Lyrics, we’ve been waiting for Hugh Grant to give us another perfect guilty pleasure to cozy up with. Introducing, The Rewrite.

The flick is set on the Binghamton University campus in upstate New York where Keith Michaels (Grant) — once an award-winning screenwriter, now more of a has-been — takes up a professorship. Despite defining teaching as “an absurd profession practiced by desperate failures,” the disgruntled fallen star ships off to Vestal to begin a screenwriting class. While desperately searching for inspiration on campus, he takes a particular interest in <3 Holly Carpenter (Marisa Tomei) <3, a single mom also looking to start anew. Let the witty, flirty banter and romance begin.

The Rewrite which also features Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons, opens in theaters and on VOD and iTunes Feb. 13. So if you want to »

10 Weird Early Performances By The Walking Dead Actors

23 January 2015 1:08 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

tumblr

It doesn’t always use them to their fullest and has a unfortunate habit of bumping half of them off, but The Walking Dead has one of the best ensemble casts on television. Granted, it’s nearest competitor is fellow AMC show Mad Men – and besides that, most television ensembles are in comedies, cop shows or soap operas – but still. That’s saying a lot with that competition.

From the surprisingly convincing American accent by plummy Brit Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes to B-movie actor Norman Reedus putting in the real acting chops as Daryl Dixon, from pop singer Emily Kinney stretching her talents as Beth to the evolving talents of Chandler Riggs as Carl, it’s a strong bunch.

What’s most surprising is that, for the most part, the stars of The Walking Dead aren’t big names. There may be a couple of “hey, it’s that guy! »

Interview: 'Man Seeking Woman' co-star Eric André on getting naked and the evil of 'Love Actually'

20 January 2015 9:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto, On. Eric André and I are kindred spirits.  I don't know if this is actually the case on any sort of global scale, but on a recent visit to the "Man Seeking Woman" set in Toronto, I overhear a fellow reporter asking Andre about his favorite and least favorite romantic comedies. I no longer remember what André lists as a favorite, but he doesn't hesitate to list "Love Actually" among the worsts. Darn tooting. André first popped up on my radar as part of the ensemble of the cancelled-too-soon "Don't Trust The B---- in Apartment 23." It was only after his extended run on CBS' watched-too-long "2 Broke Girls" that I made the fairly logical connection between actor/comic Eric André and Adult Swim's "The Eric André Show," which he hosts and created. The third season of "The Eric André Show" premiered in November, but André now has another sitcom »

The Precedent for an Eddie Redmayne or Michael Keaton Oscar Win

19 January 2015 8:53 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With Michael Keaton winning the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy and Eddie Redmayne winning for best actor in a drama, both men continue establishing themselves as the frontrunners in this year’s lead actor race at the Oscars.

Though not new to films, Redmayne starred in Oscar-nominated films such as Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2008) and Les Miserables (2012). His performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, however, propelled him to widespread acclaim and put him on the radar. He is one of four best actor nominees — along with Keaton, Benedict Cumberbatch and Steve Carell — to receive their first nomination this year.

For most of his career, Keaton was known for his comedic roles, such as Mr. Mom (1983) and Beetlejuice (1988), and for his turn as Batman in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992). These roles earned Keaton praise and »

Thunderbirds Are Go! - First Look at the Tracy Brothers

15 January 2015 12:50 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A couple of weeks ago, we got our first teaser trailer for the upcoming series Thunderbirds Are Go! All it included was a distress call and a glimpse at the redesigned Thunderbird 5. Today, we have our first look at the Tracy brothers team, who are the main characters in the series, and as you can see the CGI character designs replicate the look of the old marionette puppets from the original 1965 series. 

Below you will find some additional details on the upcoming series. I'm kinda excited to see how this turns out!

Featuring effects by Weta Workshop, the iconic series is coming back and features a cast led by Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) as Lady Penelope and David Graham (“Thunderbirds” 1965) reprising his role as chauffeur and International Rescue agent Parker.Unstoppable inventor Brains will be voiced by Kayvan Novak, while Tracy brothers Gordon and John are both played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually, »

Rodrigo Santoro is Going from Xerxes in '300' to Jesus in 'Ben-Hur'

13 January 2015 5:06 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Paramount Pictures and MGM have had the leads for their remake of Ben-Hur set since last year with Jack Huston playing the titular Jewish prince who is betrayed into slavery by his onetime friend Messala, played by Toby Kebbell (of the Fantastic Four reboot and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). The rest of the cast includes Morgan Freeman as Ben-Hur's chariot trainer as well as Olivia Cooke and Ayelet Zurer. Now THR has word on another pivotal cast member with 300 franchise villain and Love Actually co-star Rodrigo Santoro playing another Biblical figure, albeit less evil, as the son of God himself, Jesus Christ. Read on! It makes sense that Jesus would be an important part of the story since the original Lew Wallace book from 1880 on which the film is based is called Ben-Hur: A Tale of Christ. The messiah actually appears several times in the tale, »

The 17 Worst Ways to Be Killed by Liam Neeson

9 January 2015 2:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Liam Neeson doesn't look like the kind of man who'd want to kill you. With that charming Irish brogue and those sad eyes, he seems more in the mood for a cozy night indoors with popcorn and Love Actually than the type to go on a murderous rampage. But as his filmography has proven time and again — especially since 2008's Taken turned him into a brooding, soulful action hero — his seemingly calm demeanor is likely what makes him such an efficient, creative killing machine. (If not quite as effective or creative as Jason Statham.) Here's a reminder of the best ways that Neeson, out this weekend in Taken 3, can kill you. »

Quiz: All About Liam Neeson

5 January 2015 7:29 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Liam Neeson is back in Cineplex theatres this week reprising his role as ex-cia agent Bryan Mills in Taken 3, opening on Friday. The 6’4” Irish giant has grown into an action hero as of late thanks to movies like TakenThe A-Team, and The Grey, even though we’ll always have a soft spot for his more dramatic roles in KinseyMichael Collins and as widower Daniel in the dramedy Love Actually, just to name a few. We’ve been big fans of Neeson since way back in the 80s in movies like The Bounty and in Suspect where he plays a deaf-mute homeless man defended by attorney Cher when he is accused of murder. Sounds intriguing, right?  And of course, who can forget his defining role as Oskar Schindler in 1993’s Schindler’s List.
