Scarlett Johansson's 5 best roles: Under the Skin, The Avengers

23 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

2014 has turned out to be a landmark year for Scarlett Johansson. The double whammy of Spike Jonze's Her and Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin saw her doing the best work of her career, in both cases playing a non-human being who develops consciousness and a soul through her contact with the world.

Then there was her fourth and best outing yet as Marvel's Black Widow. Her role in The Winter Soldier was so significant that the film could justifiably have been called Captain America & Black Widow, if not for the fact that that's a rubbish title.

And to cap things off this summer, Johansson's solo sci-fi Lucy debuted at number one at the Us box office, far outstripping the week's other major release Hercules.

With Lucy reaching UK screens this week, Digital Spy looks back on Johansson's five best roles to date.

From the Press Release:

Lakeshore Records will release two new volumes of music from the hit NBC television series Hannibal, composed by Brian Reitzell (Lost in Translation, "Boss").

The Hannibal Season Two Volumes 1 & 2 Original TV Soundtracks will be available digitally on September 2nd and on CD September 23, 2014. As with the two volumes of music from Season One, released digitally August 5th and arriving on CD September 2nd, each track on these two albums is a suite of music from an episode of the series.

“In this second season of Hannibal each episode is named after a Japanese food course,” said Reitzell. “It kind of gave me the opportunity to »

Bart & Fleming: Digital Fascism, William Goldman’s Timeless Line; Print Woes

10 August 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this weekly Sunday column, two old friends get together and grind their axes on the movie business. Off last Sunday, the boys have a lot on their minds.

Fleming: We have entered an age of digital fascism; render an opinion against the grain, and disagreement is followed by insults and threats to end careers. Because of an opinion.

Bart: Are you referring to Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Pedro Almodovar being attacked for signing that petition charging Israel with practicing genocide in the Gaza? It was certainly not a smart move on their part.

Fleming: I get that. Anyone paying attention can see Israel’s existence comes out of an unimaginable genocide attempt in WWII. I wonder if Bardem and Cruz read the fine print when the petition was put under their noses. Provoked by »

Film4’s New Chief David Kosse Speaks to Variety About Challenges of Role

4 August 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — U.K. broadcaster Channel 4 revealed today that the new chief of its filmmaking division, Film4 — which has backed Oscar-winning pics like Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave” and Danny Boyle’s “Slumdog Millionaire” — would be David Kosse, who is president, international, at Universal Pictures. Variety spoke to Kosse about his new role.

Kosse, who joins Film4 on Nov. 1, said it was a bit early to speak about specific plans for Film4, but added that he had no intention of changing the “creative remit” of the production unit. “There continues to be a focus on emerging filmmakers, young talent and creative risk-taking,” he said.

Recent pics from emerging U.K. talent backed by Film4 include Yann Demange’s feature debut “’71,” which premiered in Berlin competition, and Daniel Wolfe’s first film “Catch Me Daddy,” which bowed in Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight.

Bill Murray Cast As Baloo In The Jungle Book

1 August 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You never really know when or where Bill Murray might turn up. Unless it's a Wes Anderson movie, in which case, there's a pretty good chance. But The Jungle Book isn't a Wes Anderson movie, it's a Disney movie directed by Jon Favreau, and Bill Murray is voicing the role of Baloo. Murray joins a top-notch cast of voices that already includes Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong'o, Idris Elba,and Scarlett Johansson, the latter of whom starred alongside Murray in Lost in Translation. To celebrate the news, Jon Favreau posted this teasy announcement, offering a nod to Caddyshack, but no direct mention of Murray...

Soundtracks for Hannibal Seasons 1 and 2 Heading our Way from Lakeshore Records

1 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Few current TV shows are as cinematic as NBC's "Hannibal," and that includes the stellar music that accompanies each episode. If you're a fan of the series who's looking to add to your CD collection, then read on for some very cool news!

From the Press Release:

Lakeshore Records will release four volumes of music from the hit NBC television series Hannibal, composed by Brian Reitzell (Lost in Translation, "Boss").

The Hannibal Season One Volumes 1 & 2 soundtrack will be available digitally on August 5th and on CD September 2nd. The Hannibal Season Two Volumes 1 & 2 Original TV Soundtracks will be available digitally on September 2nd and on CD September 23rd.

“Visually it’s so artfully done and quite fantastical so I see it like an opera staging; otherwise, I might be more disturbed,” said Reitzell of Hannibal. “Listening to the music alone is scarier than in the context of the show.”

23 Times Bill Murray Was Just the Greatest, From the Golf Course to the Oscars to His Impeccable Taste in Hats

29 July 2014 3:50 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Bill Murray is having a killer second act. Already forever a comedy icon thanks to his work in Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters and Groundhogs Day, et al., Murray had a career renaissance thanks both to Wes Anderson in general and his turn as a jaded actor in the 2003 indie darling Lost in Translation, for which he earned an Oscar nod for his uncharacteristically dramatic (though liberally peppered with humor) efforts. Now, in addition to being at the top of every director's wish list, the 63-year-old actor is enjoying a new kind of renaissance in which he is more than just a reliably versatile movie star. He's a downright pop-culture darling! Basically, Bill Murray makes everything »

Transformation Tuesday: Scarlett Johansson

29 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

Scarlett Johansson is one of the hottest women on the planet, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t once have some awkward years. This week’s Transformation Tuesday is all about Scarlett’s evolution from precocious child actor in movies like Manny & Lo to self-conscious teen in Ghost World and the sultry-voiced woman we know from Lost In Translation. Now, Scarlett is ruling the box office with latest thriller, Lucy.

While Scarlett’s career has been on a steady rise for more than a decade, her fashion and beauty choices have been all over the map. From in-between teen to funky fashion mullet to dark and sultry locks and back to blonde bombshell again, Scarlett’s looks have run the gamut. We admire her for taking risks and always looking amazing. How does she do it? Enjoy this look back on Scar Jo’s style transformation. »

Scarlett Johansson’s Dark And Twisted Movie Roles

27 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

There’s no doubt that Scarlett Johansson is one of the most talented actresses around. She’s played a superhero in Marvel franchises, a free spirit in Vicky Christina Barcelona, and a reflective, lovable loner in Lost In Translation. However, ScarJo’s clearly not afraid to go over to the dark side.

In her new film, Lucy, the actress plays a drug mule who manages to take down thugs after being drugged and given superhuman abilities. She’s also played a sexy alien, a clone effectively sentenced to die, and a temptress caught in a Hollywood murder mystery. But which character is the one we’d want to avoid in a dark alley? We rounded up and ranked Johansson’s odd and twisted roles, so dig into our gallery to find out which characters made the list.

Love According to 21st Century Movies

27 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Love is a many-splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!” so says Ewan McGregor in Baz Luhrmann’s classic romantic tragedy, Moulin Rouge!

It’s a thought that has persisted in cinema for well over a century. Love is what motivates characters; it’s a dream they want to realize, a reality they have to face, the content of their musings in their nightly diary entries.

Decades of cinema have seen the nature of other genres completely overturned. More and more, horrors are gearing towards high-concept supernatural thrillers over human killers; comedies are willing to get raunchier, with a whole lot more swearing; action movies are only too eager to show off brutal set-pieces; and comic book movies and sci-fi films have the effects capable of making the unreal real.

But romance? How much has that changed? And how much do we really want it to? »

‘Lucy’ Review: Scarlett Johansson’s Brains and Brawn Don’t Quite Mix

23 July 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The question of, “What would happen if we used more than ten percent of our brains?,” is one that has been posed before, but Lucy looks to answer it in a way that is both cerebral and action packed. Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is an American student living (and living it up) in Taiwan, but her entire world is turned upside down when a locked briefcase is handcuffed to her wrist and she finds herself in the middle of a ruthless drug ring. After meeting the elusive Mr. Jang (Choi Min-sik), Lucy finds out what is in the briefcase and what Mr. Jang would now like her to do with its contents. Forced to carry the drugs inside her (scenes that will have squeamish viewers turning away), a sudden physical altercation causes the bag of drugs (CPH4, to be exact) to burst and Lucy to go from unassuming drug mule to an emotionless walking superhuman.

Quiz: All About Scarlett Johansson

21 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

She’s been turning heads on and off screen since her role in 2001’s Ghost World caught the attention of indie movie lovers everywhere.  And with her breakthrough role in Lost in TranslationScarlett Johansson jumped into mainstream consciousness and launched her career in the spotlight.

It’s hard to believe that it’s only seen a decade since Johansson wandered the streets of Tokyo with Bill Murray in Lost in Translation.  Since then, Johansson has chosen roles in everything from rom-coms to action flicks, became Woody Allen’s muse, and slipped into skin-tight leather and held her own with the men and mutants of The Avengers and its upcoming sequel.

Johansson’s latest on screen incarnation sees the actress as the titular Lucy, a woman who is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob in Taiwan.  When a massive quantity of the smuggled drugs inadvertently leak into her system, »

Blu-ray Review – Under the Skin (2013)

14 July 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Under the Skin, 2013.

Directed by Jonathan Glazer.

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Paul Brannigan, Jessica Mance, Krystof Hádek, Scott Dymond, and Michael Moreland.

Synopsis:

A mysterious woman seduces lonely men in the evening hours in Scotland. Events lead her to begin a process of self-discovery.

Opening on an aligning of planetary activity, darkness shimmering against the beaming light of the intergalactic, it is evident from the very first frames that Under the Skin is unlike anything you’ve seen. As the planets align and then fade into the very darkness they first appeared, the camera moves slowly away to a screen of white, purposely taking its time to reveal the eye of our protagonist, in this case an alien being, who is seemingly in some sort of human “training” before being released onto the third rock from the sun.

As you can tell, this is no-compromise cinema from the outset, the sort »

10 of geek cinema's more curious quirks of fate

10 July 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We take a light-hearted look at a few of the more strange coincidences and quirks of fate in recent cinema history...

Top 10

Stories are often built on coincidences and happenstance. Chance encounters at railway stations. Bruce Willis bumping into Ving Rhames while he's out and about in his Honda in Pulp Fiction. But what about those weird patterns we see in our everyday reality, or, more to the point, in cinema history?

When Batman Begins came out, it was widely noted that Christian Bale had already played an unfathomably rich man with a secret double life before, in Mary Harron's adaptation of American Psycho. Bale's character, Patrick Bateman, even has a surname that's basically Batman with an 'e' added to it.

Those are the kinds of strange quirks of fate we're looking at here. If you have any of your own, do share them in the comments section.
