The Notable Films of 2010: Part Six

27 December 2009 10:09 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Last Airbender

Opens: July 2nd 2010

Cast: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel

Director: M. Night Shyamalan

Summary: A live-action film based on the Nickelodeon animated TV series. In a fantastic world where civilisation exists as four great empires, a reluctant young child sets out on a perilous journey to restore balance to a world torn apart by war.

Analysis: It has been quite the decade for M. Night Shyamalan, who started it as a household name with the label of a modern-day Hitchcock thanks to the likes of "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs". Today he's considered more of a one-trick pony and in some cases a punchline due to rampant stories of egomania run wild and a series of much derided onscreen flops like "Lady in the Water" and "The Happening".

Thus 'Airbender' marks a potential return to form for the helmer. An adaptation of the hit »

Loosening Up More Uptight Women w/ 'Leap Year'

13 November 2009 6:48 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Who started the whole cliche where an uptight American woman hits Ireland and finds out how to loosen up by a sexy, foreign man? There's something in the water over there in Hollywood's version of the country that makes every bloody romantic comedy feature this premise. It's not as bad as something like The Ugly Truth, that's for sure, but it pretty darned blatant.

Following in the footsteps of Matchmaker, P.S. I Love You, and other romantic fare, MSN has debuted a trailer for Leap Year (check it out after the jump), the film where Matthew Goode gets to recover from the trauma of losing his new wife to a female florist (Imagine Me and You), and steal a desperate Amy Adams from the likes of Adam Scott. Now granted, she is on her way to Dublin and meets the man in Wales, but they're still heading to the land of shamrocks. »

The first trailer for the romantic comedy, Leap Year, which stars Amy Adams and Matthew Goode, has gone online.

The story follows one woman's quest to marry the 'perfect guy'. When Anna (Adams) and her beau pass their four-year anniversary without a marriage proposal, Anna finds an old Irish tradition that will let her take matters into her own hands. The tradition allows a women to propose to men but only on February 29th, so she follows her boyfriend to Dublin with the intention of getting down on bended knee but fate steps in and leaves her stranded on the other side of the Emerald Isle with only the surly but sexy Declan (Goode) to get her across the country.

At the helm of Leap Year is Anand Tucker, the director of Shopgirl and Hilary and Jackie.

First Trailer and Poster for Leap Year Starring Amy Adams and Matthew Goode

12 November 2009 5:11 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Watching the trailer for Leap Year, I couldn’t help but wonder, “Who put Amy Adams in this Kate Hudson movie?”  Adams is far too talented for a role which requires her to be a neurotic straight woman desperate for marriage and then do adorable pratfalls along the way.  I don’t need to see this kind of movie again and I certainly don’t want to see Adams do a role she could do in her sleep.

Check out the trailer after the jump and try to imagine Kate Hudson doing this role.  It’s depressing.  You can also see the poster and read the brief synopsis.  They are slightly less depressing the trailer.

Investing in an Irish tradition that allows women to propose to men on February 29th, Anna decides to follow her boyfriend Jeremy (Adam Scott) to Dublin and get down on one knee herself. But airplanes, weather and fate leave Anna stranded on the other side of Ireland, and she must enlist the help of handsome and surly Declan (Matthew Goode) to get her across the country.

The Week in Film: Oscar Bait

12 November 2009 9:02 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Why, hello, folks! Another week means another week closer to December, which means it’s another week closer to Oscar bait movies. Aren’t you curious? I know you are, so let’s begin!

First up, we have 2012. It’s one of those natural disaster movies, but this time, on a global scale. The whole thing is based on the end of the world that in turn is based on the Mayan calendar. Expect super visual effects in the likes of things blowing up, giant tsunamis, raining meteors, skyscrapers collapsing, and Godzilla. Oh wait, scratch that last one.

Okay, sure this isn’t Oscar bait. But still, if you’re feeling like July in November, go for it! Oh, yeah, 2012 stars John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Oliver Platt, and Amanda Peet.

The second of the two wide releases this week is Pirate Radio. In the 1960s, a bunch of DJs went on a boat, »

CIFF 2009: The winners! And our reviews

22 October 2009 6:39 PM, PDT | blogs.suntimes.com/ebert | See recent Roger Ebert's Blog news »

Tina Mabry's "Mississippi Damned," an independent American production, won the Gold Hugo as the best film in the 2009 Chicago International Film Festival, and added Gold Plaques for best supporting actress (Jossie Thacker) and best screenplay (Mabry). It tells the harrowing story of three black children growing up in rural Mississippi in circumstances of violence and addiction. The film's trailer and an interview with Mabry are linked at the bottom.

The win came over a crowed field of competitors from all over the world, many of them with much larger budgets. The other big winner at the Pump Room of the Ambassador East awards ceremony Saturday evening was by veteran master Marco Bellocchio of Italy, who won the Silver Hugo as best director for "Vincere," the story of Mussolini's younger brother. Giovanna Mezzogiorno and Filippo Timi won Silver Hugos as best actress and actor, »

When Did We Start Immediately Remaking U.K. Movies?

15 October 2009 10:15 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Remakes are inevitable. I know, I know. But at least when the remakes are of foreign-language films, I can rant whilst understanding that they're spoon feeding the anti-subtitle audience. Lots of people don't like making their eyes watch a scene and read text scrolling along the bottom at the same time. I get it. But since when did English films, as in films from the U.K., get the same treatment? Variety reports that Columbia Pictures has grabbed the rights to the British miniseries Red Riding, and Steve Zaillian is in negotiations to shrink the story into one film while Ridley Scott is spotlit to direct.

Miniseries doesn't quite cover it. We're talking about David Peace's quartet of books going into a trilogy of films. Movies directed by Julian Jarrold (Kinky Boots), James Marsh (Man on Wire), and Anand Tucker (Shopgirl). And by the way -- they only premiered this year, »

Alfredson Steps in for Tucker With Kidman's 'Danish Girl'

15 September 2009 3:05 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Originally slated to be directed by Anand Tucker (Shopgirl), the Oscar bait feature The Danish Girl starring Nicole Kidman has found a new helmer in Let the Right One In director Tomas Alfredson. The film is a true-life sex-change drama based on David Ebershoff's novel. If that doesn't say Oscar then I don't know what does. Lucinda Coxon adapted the screenplay telling the story of Danish artists Einar and Greta Wegener. Their marriage took a sharp left turn after Einar (Kidman) stood in for an female model that Greta was set to paint. When their portraits become wildly popular in 1920s Copenhagen, Greta encouraged her husband to adopt the female guise. What began as a harmless game led Einer to a metamorphosis and landmark 1931 operation that shocked the world and threatened their love. Charlize Theron was originally attached to play the role of Greta Wegener but has left the »

Jason Schwartzman marries

20 August 2009 5:00 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Jason Schwartzman has married his girlfriend Brady Cunningham. The 'Funny People' star exchanged vows with the eco-friendly fashion designer in a low-key ceremony at their San Fernando Valley home last month. The 29-year-old actor's representative said: "It was a very small ceremony with many family members and close friends." Jason - who is the nephew of legendary director Francis Ford Coppola - had been dating Brady for three years before he proposed earlier this year. Schwartzman is known for his roles in 'The Darjeeling Limited', 'Rushmore', 'Shopgirl' and 'I Heart Huckabees'. Before he started acting, Schwartzman was a drummer and songwriter for the band Phantom Planet, and still composes music for films, including the musical score for 'Funny »

Top Ten Tuesday: Comedians Turned Actors

28 July 2009 7:29 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

They make us laugh.  They make us cry.  Okay, maybe not so much.  But they sure make us laugh.  In honor of Judd Apatow’s latest film about stand-up comedians, we felt it was time to come up with our top 10 list of comedians turned actors.  Some of them have found more success in one area over the other.  Others have done a fine job walking the line between the two.  Regardless of how the success is dispersed, each individual on this list has reached it at some point in their career.

10. Chris Farley

One of the most successful SNL stars to branch out into the film world, Chris Farley is a legend in the comedy world.  Imagine if he had survived longer than his 33 years.  One of the most iconic images in the last 20 years of SNL is Farley dressed as a Chippendale’s dancer along with Patrick Swayze. »

Shopgirl – Movie Review

8 July 2009 7:16 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The first thing you have to ask yourself is, “Do I want to hurt now, or do I want to hurt later.” That Shopgirl is a film which poses such a question is rather uninteresting really, but the fact that it poses the question while only sideways implying that the question applies to every relationship is an impressive textual delivery. Shopgirl, much like Lost in Translation, is the story of a May-December romance which ends with the young, but somehow more real for the experience woman parting company with the wealthy, worldly-wise, but incomplete for all that older man. If you think mentioning this spoils the film for you, there is no point in your watching it anyway. Mirabelle Buttersfield (Claire Danes) is a young woman from Vermont who has come to L.A. to do whatever it is people come to L.A. from Vermont to do. Unfortunately, we »

Vanity Fair's Hollywood ~ Episode 11 (2005)

26 May 2009 2:21 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Missed previous episodes? See: 1995 , 1996, 1997, 1998 , 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004.

Vanity Fair briefly killed my enthusiasm for the "Hollywood project" when they nixed the traditional cover for 2009. But time heals most wounds and I have reanimated the project's corpse. 2004's cover had 13 already peaking actresses on it. How'd they follow it in 2005? With another batch of goddesses, 60% of whom had already graced their "Hollywood" cover. In the case of the C/Kates, it was now thrice. Was Vanity Fair running out of ideas? Given the idiosyncratic pool the covers regularly pulled from you'd think there were only 40 actresses in Hollywood... but then, it's probably all in who you know who represents you when it comes to face time here. It's definitely not only about the fame. Consider this: this cover series lasted from 1995 - 2008 and Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Michelle Williams and Tilda Swinton never appeared on them (just four chronologically appropriate examples off the »

The Red Riding Trilogy

28 February 2009 9:36 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Red Riding is a trilogy of movies based on a quartet of novels by David Peace. The books (and films) are fictionalized accounts of the investigation into the Yorkshire Ripper, a brutal serial killer that stalked the Yorkshire area of England in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
