Hugh Grant to Receive Zurich Film Festival’s Golden Icon Award

16 August 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hugh Grant, whose performance in comedy drama “Florence Foster Jenkins” has been gathering steam as an awards contender, is to be feted at the Zurich Film Festival.

The British actor will receive the Swiss festival’s Golden Icon Award, which is awarded in recognition of lifetime achievements. As well as picking up the award, Grant will present Stephen Frears’ “Florence Foster Jenkins,” in which he stars opposite Meryl Streep.

Festival heads Karl Spoerri and Nadja Schildknecht commented: “His uncanny charm and charisma have fueled memorable performances for decades, but in watching his amazing body of work, the depth of his acting is unmistakable and equally as memorable.”

Grant’s films have grossed more than $2.5 billion combined worldwide. Credits include “Bridget Jones’ Diary,” “Love Actually” and “Four Weddings and a Funeral.” He was nominated for Golden Globes for his performances in “Notting Hill” and “About a Boy.”

The festival runs Sept. »

Could ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ Land Hugh Grant His First Oscar Nomination?

11 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This week, Paramount bows “Florence Foster Jenkins,” the true story of a very nice woman who happened to be a very bad singer. Many will talk about the fact that it’s likely to land star Meryl Streep her 20th Oscar nomination, which is staggering. But perhaps even more surprising is that her co-star in the film, Hugh Grant, has never even been nominated.

Maybe it’s not that shocking, considering Grant doesn’t usually make movies that compete in the Oscar race; with the exception of “Sense and Sensibility” in 1995, his work tends to be more populist than “prestige.” But “Florence Foster Jenkins,” directed by Stephen Frears, is the perfect combination of both. It’s a big crowd-pleaser, a period piece, and a true story. It also helps that the central characters are artists – something the Academy loves. The film itself is the first entry of the year that »

22 June 2016 6:28 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Since its inception, Game of Thrones has had deep ties to real-life musicians. Kristian "Hodor" Nairn has a lengthy career as a guitarist and DJ. The Hold Steady's version of the popular-in-Westeros song "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" appears in the Season Four episode "Walk of Punishment." And Alfie Allen, who plays everyone's favorite humbled eunuch Theon Greyjoy, is the brother of pop star Lily Allen.

But the show has gone beyond that, casting actual recording artists as regular cast members or occasional superfan guests for the benefit of eagle-eyed music fans. »

Emilia Clarke Describes Her 'Ideal Man': 'Dad Bod' Dudes, Rejoice!

2 June 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Careful now. "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke just gave hope to millions of guys with "dad bods," but it may be a trap. What if she's just telling you what she knows you want to hear, and once you are hooked, she smiles and says, "Dracarys," and then you go up in flames? Still worth it? Trick question, of course it is! There's really no better way to go.

Emilia plays the Mother of Dragons on GoT and what looks like a manic pixie dream girl in the romantic drama "Me Before You." In real life, she has topped many Sexiest Women Alive polls, but she is currently single, and not looking for a perfect 10 guy like her GoT love interests played by Jason Momoa or Michiel Huisman, or Sam Claflin in "Me Before You."

Here's what she told People:

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Top Gun’ premiered, ‘Seinfeld’ killed Susan

16 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

30 years ago today, Navy fighter pilot hotshots Maverick, Iceman, and Goose first flew across big screens around the world. It was on May 16, 1986 that Top Gun opened in theaters. Already well on his way to becoming a household name thanks to 1983’s Risky Business, Tom Cruise became a certified movie star with the release of Top Gun. It was also the first hit for director Tony Scott, who went on to direct other action flicks and thrillers like Crimson Tide, Man on Fire, and Déjà Vu (which reunited him with Top Gun star Val Kilmer) before his death in 2012. Top Gun, a slick, upbeat, Reagan-era ode to masculinity, boasted a memorable soundtrack (with Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” and Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”), impressive dogfights, an endlessly quotable though often goofy script, and, upon its release, immediate box office success. It became the highest grossing movie of 1986. Also on this day, »

Teachers: funny, honest, unglamorous comedy drama

A fond look back at UK comedy drama Teachers, starring a pre-The Walking Dead and post-This Life Andrew Lincoln...

Fifteen years ago, Andrew Lincoln wasn’t the guy from The Walking Dead. He wasn’t even the creepy guy from Love Actually (the one with the signs. Not any of the other creepy guys). No, he was the guy from This Life that was getting a show all of his own in which to charm the viewing masses. That show was Teachers. And charm us he did.

Set in a secondary school in Bristol, Teachers was good enough to make us actually want to go back to school – or, for those of us who were still at school when it started, to wonder if some of the ridiculous rumours we were making up about the staff shagging each other might actually be true after all. »

Remake of classic Scottish comedy set for world premiere as 2016 Edinburgh closing night gala.

The 70th edition of the Edinburgh Film Festival (Eiff) (June 15-26) will close with the world premiere of Scottish comedy remake Whisky Galore!.

The home-grown production was filmed on location in Scotland and features Scottish actors including Gregor Fisher (Love Actually), James Cosmo (Braveheart), Kevin Guthrie (Sunset Song), Sean Biggerstaff (Harry Potter And The Chamber of Secrets), and Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie).

BFI Film Academy to receive $1.4m funding boost

8 April 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Announcement coincides with the unveiling of six films by BFI graduates.

The UK’s Department for Education has announced it will invest $1.4m (£1m) of funding to support the BFI Film Academy in 2016-17.

The boost is on top of the $5.6m (£4m) the Dfe has invested in the Academy’s residential and regional programmes since 2012.

The move came on the day that 66 young filmmakers from the BFI Film Academy unveiled six short films to British film industry figures including producers Alison Owen (Suffragette, Saving Mr. Banks), Faye Ward (Suffragette, Jane Eyre) and Duncan Kenworthy (The Pass, Love Actually).

The screening and graduation ceremony, held today at BFI Southbank in London, showcased films created as part of the BFI Film Academy course at the National Film and Television School.

24 March 2016 9:29 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Chloe Grace Moretz gives the best interviews. She's smart, opinionated, and not afraid to say things that may be controversial, while also admitting she Does care what you think. She wants be be "America's Sweetheart," as she told Complex magazine, but the "Kick-Ass" star is always going to be the kind of sweetheart who takes a stand.

Moretz, 19, opened up on a lot of subjects in her Complex interview, including the topic of her live-action "Little Mermaid" movie. Here's that section of the talk, where she promises to flip the "regressive" story on its head:

"...So don't worry that the live-action Little Mermaid will reinforce the misogyny of the original, in which a girl sacrifices her essence for the mere shot at gaining a man's favor. Moretz is on it. 'We want to make this good for girls," she says. 'We can't make this regressive tale in a modern world. »

Duncan Kenworthy talks his under-the-radar strategy for 'The Pass'

16 March 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

How the Love Actually producer guided the gay-footballers chamber piece from Royal Court sell-out to BFI Flare opening-night film.

Last night (Mar 16), The Pass opened the 30th edition of the BFI’s long-running Lgbt film festival - now called Flare - at the Odeon Leicester Square.

As well as being the first Flare opener to premiere at Odeon’s flagship cinema in 10 years, it also marked a return for Duncan Kenworthy, producer of Four Weddings And A Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually and The Eagle among others, who has premiered four films at the venue.

For Kenworthy, opening BFI Flare with The Pass was an optimal result for a film he self-funded and produced entirely under the radar, with the understanding that if it wasn’t a creative success, he could decide not to unveil it to the wider world. Fortunately, reviews for the Ben A. Williams-directed adaptation of John Donnelly’s play about gay footballers »
