10 Things You Didn’t Know About Rosario Dawson

19 May 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Netflix

A classic rags-to-riches story, Rosario Dawson began her career penniless, with no hopes of ever being an actor. Basically homeless, she was discovered on the streets and cast in her first film at the age of 15. She enjoyed the experience so much that she used her pay to take acting classes, and that’s how she ended up playing Night Nurse in Daredevil.

Her accomplishments sound a little less impressive when you put it like that, but Dawson’s performance as Claire Temple in Netflix’s first Marvel series was one of the highlights of that show. It was just the latest in a long line of great, complex and diverse roles she’s played over the years, starring in everything from Oliver Stone’s ill-fated Alexander to Rent.

Over the course of her career Dawson has played a death-defying make-up artist in Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, the »

9 April 2015 5:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Reboots, videogame adaptations, and a few long awaited sequels are all due for release next year

Now that Fast & Furious 7 has formally opened summer blockbuster season 2015 up, it's time for us to take our traditional look at the big movies gracing multiplexes this time next year.

2016 is set to be a pivotal summer, too. There are big movies in both the DC and Marvel cinematic universes. Warner Bros is looking to launch the first of six King Arthur movies, whilst Universal may get cracking with its classic monster cinematic universe. And - yep - we may even get the world's first great film based on a videogame.

Summer blockbuster season 2016 stretches from March through to August, and here's what treats are lined up. Please note, we've gone with Us release dates, for the purposes of this feature, as that's where most of the films will debut first.

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

Serena | Review

25 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Place Beyond the Pines: Bier’s Ungainly Period Piece Revels in Unintentional Gaffs

Danish director Susanna Bier’s second English language film, Serena, has gained a bit of notoriety after an unexpected delayed theatrical release in the Us. A melodramatically inclined period piece based on a novel by Ron Rash (author of The World Made Straight, of which an adaptation was released earlier this year), the lush production design and starry cast creates a misleading veneer, which slowly gives way to a rather kooky portrait of its eponymous lead character. Presented with soberingly grim determination, the film lapses into unintentionally laughable territory, though not to a degree worthy of camp aesthetic or cult following.

Filming shortly after their award winning collaboration on 2012’s The Silver Linings Playbook, the first onscreen reunion of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper finally saw a premiere at the 2014 London Film Festival and reactions have been »

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.

As the cast continues preparing for the West End stage adaptation of Gurinder Chadha's screen hit ahead of previews on May 15, find out what the movie's ensemble cast went on to achieve - including who is coming back for the musical...

Russian producers plan film on murdered TV journalist

10 March 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Film will focus on Russian journalist and TV presenter Vladislav Listyev; Oliver Stone eyed as director.

Russian producers Alexander Kulikov (Marins Group Entertainment) and Oleg Teterin (Teterin Film) are planning to make a feature film, Listyev – Hope is The Last To Die, about the prominent Russian journalist and TV presenter Vladislav Listyev who was murdered by unknown assassins on March 1, 1995.

According to Teterin, they are considering Oliver Stone along with Russian film-makers as a possible candidate to serve as the film’s director.

“We hope that the participation in a project of such significance for Russia as a film about Vladislav Listyev will be a natural way for Oliver Stone to continue strengthening his cinematic ties with Russia,” said Teterin whose company last year acquired the rights to Stone’s The Untold Story Of The United States which was later broadcast on Russia’s First Channel.

Established screenwriters and debutants are now invited to enter a competition »

The Walking Dead, Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut & Hannibal Nominated in 41st Annual Saturn Awards

4 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well. Also recognized in this year's nominations is Scream Factory's Nightbreed: The Director's Cut Blu-ray, NBC's Hannibal TV series, Only Lovers Left Alive, and many more.

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: February 9 - February 15

9 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day"

This adaptation of the beloved children's book got mixed reviews, but it's fine if you're looking for a rather harmless family feature. Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner co-star as the equally frazzled parents of young Alex (Ed Oxenbould). Check out this exclusive clip!

"Force Majeure"

They say that how you react in an emergency reveals your true nature and feelings. Are you out for number one, or is your family your first concern? A seemingly perfect Swedish family has to face that exact question when an impending avalanche threatens to ruin their ski trip to the Alps.

"Nightcrawler"

‘Me And Earl And The Dying Girl’ Takes Top Dramatic Honors At Sundance; Is It The Next ‘Whiplash’? – Winners List

31 January 2015 8:15 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Updated with details and quotes: The Sundance Film Festival awards ceremony tonight in Park City saw a dramatic dual decision and strong political voices to put a cap on a hot-deals festival. Like last year, when Whiplash took both the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award on its way to an Best Picture Oscar nomination, the much-sought Me And Earl And The Dying Girl took both this year.

“I want to dedicate this to all the young filmmakers in my hometown of Laredo, Texas,” said director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon onstage. Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush teamed to land the pic earlier this week after frenzied bidding, with a 2015 release planned. The Jesse Andrews script follows Greg, who is coasting through senior year of high school as anonymously as possible, avoiding social interactions like the plague while secretly making spirited, bizarre films with Earl, his only friend.

Partisan | 2015 Sundance Film Festival Review

29 January 2015 6:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Pledge Allegiance: Kleiman’s Intriguing Debut a Fascist Allegory

Sure to draw superficial comparisons to other famed pre-teen assassin films like The Professional (1994) or Hanna (2011), Australian helmer Ariel Kleiman’s directorial debut Partisan instead feels like what you’d imagine Yorgos Lanthimos’ version of The Village (2004) would feel like. Headlined by none other than Vincent Cassel and a cast of Euro accents speaking English, Kleiman and screenwriter Sarah Cyngler concoct a film that’s oddly obscure and perfectly menacing, with an unwillingness to explain itself, recalling titles by Lucile Hadzihalilovic, wherein groups of children are possibly being utilized for insidious means by the adult community. An allegory concerning the oppressiveness of Fascism, Kleiman’s film is also a coming-of-age-tale, spiked heavily with cold-blooded murder.

Opening with an ambient score that recalls Vangelis (utilized once more as a book end to the film), we observe Gregori (Vincent Cassel) in the midst »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Partisan’

26 January 2015 12:43 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A boy raised from birth to be a hit man begins to recalibrate his moral compass in “Partisan,” a confidently told and in some ways quite original debut feature from Australian director Ariel Kleiman. The movie resembles “Dogtooth” and another recent festival favorite, “The Tribe,” in the way it plunges viewers into a circumscribed world that has its own warped moral code. Although there’s clearly a genre hook (pint-size assassins), “Partisan” unfolds patiently and may have too little signposting for the mainstream. But discerning fests and viewers will take note of a film that marks the arrival of a filmmaker to watch.

Kleiman says he and his girlfriend/screenwriting partner, Sarah Cyngler (who also worked on production design and costumes), took inspiration from an article on child assassins in Colombia. The film is set in an unnamed, decaying urban environment, where Gregori (Vincent Cassel) heads what amounts to a cult in an isolated compound. »

Andrea Berloff will adapt Marisa Lankester’s memoir about her role in an offshore gambling empire
