Frances de la Tour: five best moments

19 June 2015 4:02 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor, currently cameoing in Mr Holmes, may be best known for sitcoms, but she’s also featured in an eclectic selection of big-screen work

Frances de la Tour is not famous for film. The public still mostly recognise her for Rising Damp; critical recognition has come, in the main, from her stage work (three Oliviers, one Tony).

And yet De la Tour has also made movies: an eclectic selection featuring collaborations with Martin Scorsese, the Wombles and Denzel Washington. Sometimes she’s seen only fleetingly – the briefest of fee-fi-fo-fums in last year’s Into the Woods, and just one appearance opposite Vicious housemate Ian McKellen in this week’s Mr Holmes. Sometimes we never even see the scenes: her role as a headmistress having an affair with Anne Reid in Love Actually was left on the cutting-room floor.

John Green’s Let It Snow Movie Set For 2016

18 June 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The John Green adaptation craze that began with last summer’s The Fault in Our Stars and continues next month with Paper Towns has been prolonged, now that Universal has set its take on his short story collection Let It Snow for December 9, 2016.

Green contributed a story to the three-story collection, which also included work by 13 Little Blue Envelopes author Maureen Johnson and ttyl writer Lauren Myracle. Pitch Perfect scribe Kay Cannon is penning the script for the adaptation, which will weave together three unexpected romances that unfold on one Christmas Eve, Love Actually style.

Currently, Let It Snow has the December weekend to itself, but its legs at the box office may be threatened by Star Wars: Rogue One opening the next week. Of course, the holiday crowd coupled with Green’s ardent fanbase should ensure Let It Snow a pretty high opening.

A long-time favorite of the young-adult crowd, »

Universal, Working Title Extend Production Deal Through 2020

Trash Blu-ray Review

3 June 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Stephen Daldry

Starring: Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis, Gabriel Weinstein, Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura, Selton Mello, Stepan Nercessian

Cert: 15

Special Features: None

Political corruption and intrigue form the backdrop to Trash, an involving action thriller set apart by two things. First, the unusual location – the slums of Rio De Janeiro, dominated by their mountains of litter. Second, the perspective – it’s seen mainly through the eyes of three kids who stumble upon a hotbed of deception that changes their lives forever.

Raphael (Teves), Gardo (Luis) and the delightfully-named Rat (Weinstein) earn their meagre living sifting through what society dumps quite literally on their doorstep. But when Raphael discovers an abandoned wallet pitched into a passing garbage truck by man-on-the-run José Angelo, he finds it contains a strange document. Unbeknownst to the boy, Angelo has been apprehended and murdered by the police at the behest of a prominent politician, »

Interview: Jack Black and Richard Curtis Talk Red Nose Day USA Live Benefit

18 May 2015 5:27 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Having the natural ability to enthrallingly captivate audiences, particularly by naturally infusing both comedy and important sentiments into their lives as you bring them into other worlds, is an essential skill of all entertainers. But also possessing the pure passion to lead by example, and emphasize the importance of helping others without expecting anything in return, is also a vital characteristic that proves how admirable a public figure truly is overall. Actor Jack Black and writer-director-producer Richard Curtis (‘Love Actually,’ ‘About Time’) commendably not only bring their fans into intriguing worlds in their films, but are also working to reverse the harrowing effects that plague children and young adults who  [ Read More ]

Vote now: Can 8 of our favourite fictional Prime Ministers beat the real one?

8 May 2015 3:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As Britain digests the results of its General Election, a look back at some of the most memorable prime ministers from TV and the movies reveals a bunch only marginally more disconcerting than some of the real-life options.

Operating on a scale from complete idiocy through to full-blown murderous villainy, were they actually on the ballot paper, you'd probably do well to think twice before putting an X in their box. But you can be sure of one terrifying thought - someone out there would.

So who would you vote for, given the choice between the real prime minister and 8 of TV and film's most memorable premiers? Find out more about our fictional candidates below...

‘Boy Meets Girl’ Review

6 May 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michael Galante, Michelle Hendley, Jean Devereux Koester, Ethan Major, Scott Martineck, Christopher McHale, Benj Mirman, Randall Newsome, Jacob Perkins, Joseph Ricci | Written and Directed by Eric Schaeffer

My gender identity is complex, but my life experiences intersect frequently with those of trans women and it’s a category I feel proud to be partially resident in.  I dress femme, I’m starting estrogen in a couple weeks, I’ve flirted with voice training, and when I go out for a walk it’s pretty solid odds that at least one passer-by is going to scream some shopworn slur at me.  This review was a deeply personal experience for me, and it’s as much a breakdown of my thoughts on life as a trans person as it is a dissection of a sweet, uncomplicated rom-com.

There are several longstanding traditions in Western film and television regarding trans women.  First, »

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 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.

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 »

Back on March 13, BBC aired a six hour telethon to raise money for Comic Relief. The telethon raisied over 78 million pounds and after thirty years, celebrities celebrated raising over 1 billion pounds. Along with documentary shorts highlighting the charities supported, humorous sketches and musical numbers were shown. Comic Relief was started by writer Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Notting Hill) and comedian Lenny Henry to raise support for families starving in Ethiopia.

To the surprise of everyone, Orlando Bloom (Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean) made an appearance to kiss David Walliams (Little Britain) to help break a world record in “Most Kisses Received in 30 Seconds.” Popular sketches brought back Mr. Bean, the Vicar of Dibley, and Little Britain (featuring Stephen Hawking). Parodies of The Four Yorkshiremen, James Bond (featuring Daniel Craig and Roger Moore), and One Direction were featured. Liam Gallagher of the original Shameless was also named a national treasure. »
