From Wild to Lord of the Rings: Who’s Walked the Farthest in Movies?

5 December 2014 7:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Every so often, in a bizarre coincidence of release-date timing, two movies that seem remarkably similar will arrive in theaters in the same season. Remember how Paul Blart and Observe and Report turned early 2009 into the year of the mall cop? It’s happened again with Tracks, in which Mia Wasikowska treks 1,700 miles across the Australian outback, and Wild, in which Reese Witherspoon treks 1,100 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail. These, of course, are not the first films to tag along with those traveling on foot. Nor are they the most ambitious. Even with an average distance walked of 1,400 miles, Wasikowska and Witherspoon aren’t among film history's top five when it comes to distance traveled using nothing but legs and feet. Here’s our list of Hollywood’s longest walkers:The Day After Tomorrow (2004): 225 miles, from Washington, D.C., to New York City Perfume: The Story of a Murderer »

Constantin Film producing 'Mortal Instruments,' 'Resident Evil' TV series

13 October 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

While production on a sequel to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones resumed after first being stalled, it seems that project has actually transformed from a film sequel to a television series. EW has learned that a deal is being finalized for a TV adaptation of Cassandra Clare's popular book franchise. Constantin Film, the company who controls the rights to the series, has shifted its focus to producing a television drama based on the franchise. Production is set to begin in 2015, though no other details about the project's development are currently known. The news makes sense for the company, »

Lilting: A Four-Hanky Work of Art

6 August 2014 5:09 AM, PDT | | See recent CultureCatch news »

Lilting is about loss times two. Mother and partner divided when their love object was alive. Battling still after his unexpected death. But although you will get teary eyed, the film is not depressive by any measure.


Writer/director Hong Khaou's debut feature is exhilarating in its craft, its performances, and its tale of the eventual fusing of two disparate hearts. Also, in its timeliness. Many ethic groups residing in Western countries are still more than a few steps behind in their acceptance of same-sex relationships.

The film commences with the handsome, lithe Kai (Andrew Leung) visiting his mother Junn (Cheng Pei Pei) in a London retirement home. Junn, of Cambodian-Chinese origin, although having lived in England for decades, has never bothered to become proficient in English. In fact, "Fuck you very much"is about her total vocabulary. A widow, Junn has consequently always depended on Kai for everything, »

Ben Whishaw Replaces Colin Firth As Voice Of Paddington

18 July 2014 4:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This winter’s Paddington has received our attention for all the wrong reasons so far. First, there was that terrifying image of the film’s stuffed bear that sparked the hilarious Creepy Paddington meme. Then, The Weinstein Company released a disappointing first trailer for the movie that made it appear to be a spiritual – albeit less gratingly non-musical – cousin to Alvin and the Chipmunks, of all things. Finally, we learned that Colin Firth, who had previously been set to voice Paddington, had dropped out of the project mid-way through production. Luckily for TWC though, it doesn’t appear that the film will be delayed, as Skyfall actor Ben Whishaw has just been set to lend his voice to the animated bear.

Though the British actor is certainly less of a household name than Firth, Whishaw’s star has been steadily rising over the past few years. He’s won fans »

Ben Whishaw Mourns In First Trailer For Sundance Drama ‘Lilting’

14 June 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While he’s impressed us in everything from Bright Star to I’m Not There to Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, Ben Whishaw got a bit of a deserved worldwide boost as the new Q in Skyfall. His latest role finds him taking on something much smaller with the drama Lilting. After premiering at Sundance (where Urszula Pontikos picked […] »

Panzer Chocolate Cuts Through Glass and Flesh in this Trailer

12 May 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Tagline: "The Darkest Nazi Secret... is about to be Revealed." It has been a year since there has been any news on the horror feature Panzer Chocolate. Since 2013, the film has released in Spain and a trailer has also been released for the film. The clip looks inspired by 3D elements as chains cut through the camera lens. As well, the film stars Melina Matthews (Mama), Geraldine Chaplin (Doctor Zhivago), Ariadna Cabrol (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer), Tony Corvillo (Sleep Tight) and Mark Schardan. Film fans can see the latest on this title below. In the story, three friends and part time archaeology students set off in search of missing art. Lost in World War II, these three colleagues are looking for stolen prints, taken by the NAZIs. Instead of finding the artwork, they find a hideous beast, Das Kommandant Frank. Their encounter with Frank shortens their lifespans, considerably. »

Mike Tyson, Pam Anderson Join "God Little"

8 February 2014 6:10 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Werner Herzog's new film continues to assemble an eclectic cast with Mike Tyson and Pamela Anderson in talks to star in Herzog's film adaptation of the award-winning coming-of-age tale "Vernon God Little" at Canana Films.

Based on Dbc Pierre's 2003 debut novel, the story is set in a small Texan border town. A violent school shooting is perpetrated by a bullied loner who guns down six classmates and then himself.

Vernon (Austin Abrams), his only friend, not only witnesses the suicide he then becomes a suspect in the shootings. Despite the dark subject matter, the tone is said to be that of a satirical black comedy about America's fame and violence obsessions.

Tyson would plan an ax murderer while Anderson's role is undisclosed. Russell Brand and Sasha Pieterse are also onboard as a scheming newspaper reporter and Vernon's love interest respectively.

Russell Brand, Werner Herzog Team On "God"

7 February 2014 2:07 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Russell Brand, Sasha Pieterse ("Pretty Little Liars") and 17 year-old Austin Abrams ("The Inbetweeners") are in talks to star in Werner Herzog's next film "Vernon God Little" at Canana Films.

Based on Dbc Pierre's 2003 debut novel, the story is set in a small Texan border town. A violent school shooting is perpetrated by a bullied loner who guns down six classmates and then himself.

Vernon (Abrams), his only friend, not only witnesses the suicide he then becomes a suspect in the shootings. Despite the dark subject matter, the tone is said to be that of a satirical black comedy about America's fame and violence obsessions.

Brand would play a charming but manipulative reporter who is willing to betray anyone in order to get a fresh angle on the story. Pieterse plays the beautiful but self-absorbed object of Vernon’s affections.

Herzog helms from a script by Andrew Birkin ("Perfume: The Story of a Murderer »
