Alan Rickman: having a film career is a bit of a surprise

16 April 2015 6:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The British actor-director revealed stories from Die Hard, Harry Potter, Robin Hood and his latest film, A Little Chaos.

Alan Rickman entertained a select audience in London last night with stories from nearly 30 years in movies.

Speaking on stage at the latest BAFTA: A Life In Pictures event, the actor-director revealed how his first exposure to film was at school with titles like Ealing comedy The Titfield Thunderbolt, before going to art school and encountering his first major influences: Antonioni and Fellini.

“But I don’t know that I thought this would be part of my life,” he recalled. “To be perfectly honest, having a film career at all is a bit of a surprise.”

After going to Rada at 25, Rickman established himself on stage and TV, and didn’t star in his first film until his early 40s. That film just happened to be the blockbuster action hit Die Hard.

Theater Review: An Illuminating Skylight

2 April 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It may not at first make sense that two such fundamentally different acting styles as Bill Nighy’s and Carey Mulligan’s should co-exist in — and mutually enhance — one play. And yet here they are in David Hare’s Skylight, a monkey and a moonbeam, somehow bringing the same story to thrilling life. Nighy, as will be obvious to anyone who saw him in Love Actually or as Davy Jones in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, is the monkey, or perhaps better to call him a Catherine wheel of tics and poses and stutters and quirks. “Mannered” is not a strong enough word to describe the way he creates the illusion of character from a million incessant, if apparently spontaneous, affectations. (At several points, he struts across the stage sideways, his long legs pointing into the wings while his face stares down the audience.) Meanwhile, as she did in »

American Idol: Who Slayed a Kelly Clarkson Song?

1 April 2015 7:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

American Idol took it back to the beginning on Wednesday with the Top 9 performing the songs of season 1 winner - and this week's mentor - Kelly Clarkson. Some contestants stuck close to the original versions (as Nick Fradiani did with "Catch My Breath"), others gave Clarkson's hits an interesting twist (as newly engaged Joey Cook did with "Miss Independent"), but it was Clark Beckham, 22, who gave the performance of the evening. "I have goosies from head to toe," judge Jennifer Lopez told Beckham after giving him a standing ovation for his rendition of Clarkson's "The Trouble with Love Is," which »

Stan Lee Teams with ‘Downton Abbey’ Producer Carnival on ‘Lucky Man’

31 March 2015 4:09 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — “Downton Abbey” producer Carnival Films has joined forces with comic-book writer Stan Lee on his first TV drama for the U.K., super-hero crime thriller “Lucky Man,” which has been commissioned by U.K. pay TV operator Sky.

It is the story of detective Harry Clayton (Nesbitt), a cop from Central London’s notorious Murder Squad, who is given a charm that seems to confer upon the wearer the ability to control luck.

Harry is down on his luck: his wife (Best) and child have left him due to his gambling habit, his boss thinks »

TV Review: ‘Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot’

29 March 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A rare romance from the typically dark imagination of children’s book author Roald Dahl, “Esio Trot” spells more than just “tortoise” backwards, but an evening of warm-fuzzy feelings all around as Dustin Hoffman’s Mr. Hoppy devises an elaborate scheme to woo the chelonian-loving widow downstairs, as played by Judi Dench. Commissioned as a New Year’s telepic for British TV, this delightful family offering is already making its way to homevideo in several European markets, but could potentially support a more substantial treatment Stateside, if someone were to shell out for theatrical (exec producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein bought all other U.S. rights).

Judging by Hoffman and Dench’s involvement alone, this is no ordinary TV movie. Co-written by “Love Actually’s” Richard Curtis (who shares credit with Paul Mayhew-Archer) and directed by smallscreen miracle worker Dearbhla Walsh (“Little Dorrit,” “Shameless”), the film has been crafted with »

Bend It Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?

22 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.

Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

Weekend Box Office: Cinderella's Wish Comes True, Run All Night Trips and Falls

15 March 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Disney demonstrated an uncanny ability to be consistent with live action films based on its animated classics while Liam Neeson had one of the worst opening weekends of the last decade. Cinderella danced into theaters with a strong number one, banking $70 million. That's almost the exact amount Maleficent took in on its opening weekend last May. It's also the highest opening for a movie helmed by Kenneth Branagh, topping the $65 million opening for Thor in 2011. Neeson's latest Run All Night ranked a very distant second place with just $11 million. The painful start is less than half of the worst of the Taken movies and the second lowest for a non-wide-release Neeson movie since 2003's Love Actually (The Next Three Days opened with just $6 million in 2010). For the full weekend top ten, check out the chart below: 1.Cinderella (2015) *   $70,053,000 Total: $70,053,000 Lw: N      Thtrs: 3,845 2.Run All Night *   $11,015,000 Total: $11,015,000 Lw: N      Thtrs: 3,171 3.Kingsman: The »

When will Liam Neeson go back to consistently making awards contenders?

12 March 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Like many of you, I was pretty surprised and more than a little bit delighted when Liam Neeson made the next act in his illustrious career an action packed one. No one expected Taken to be a hit, or as satisfyingly enjoyable as it was, but it signaled a new trajectory for Neeson. That’s been all well and good, but one thing that it’s cost us is his performances in Oscar fare. Since Taken, Neeson has more or less dropped off of the Academy’s radar, with only one upcoming project hopefully set to return him to prestige territory. I like when he kicks ass, like he does in Friday’s new release Run All Night, but I prefer it when he contends for awards. Neeson is a very strong dramatic actor and certainly very solid as an action hero, but it’s the former where he’s really been able to shine. »

Liam Neeson Will Stop Making Action Movies in 2 Years

12 March 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the success of Taken in 2009, Liam Neeson carved out quite a niche for himself as an older action star. His career certainly careened down this path, with the iconic actor appearing in 9 more action-packed thrillers that includ The A-Team, The Next Three Days, Unknown, The Grey, Battleship, Taken 2, Non-Stop, A Walk Among the Tombstones and Taken 3. Now, on the eve of his latest 'geriaction' movie, as some have dubbed them, Liam Neeson has declared that he will stop making action movies in 2 years, if he is able to make it that far.

Good Morning America caught up with Liam Neeson to chat about this weekend's Run All Night, which may certainly leave some fans with a sense of deja vu, as it once again features the actor running with a gun as he sometimes screams into a cell phone. The 62 year-old confirms that his days as an action star are numbered though, »
