Ruth Negga: 'I'm not in any rush to get anywhere'

5 November 2012 9:12 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ruth Negga won a host of admirers with her portrayal of Shirley Bassey on BBC TV last year. Now she's set to break through with a major Channel 4 spy drama and a role in Steve McQueen's next movie

Ruth Negga looks over her shoulder. "Hold on a minute," she says, leaning back to peer beneath our cafeteria table on an upper floor of the Riba building in central London. She bends to look under her chair. "Where is my movie career?"

The 30-year-old actor is clowning, and this is her way of telling me I've touched on a subject that has come up before. A best newcomer nominee at the Olivier Awards back in 2003, Negga has had memorable success in the theatre across the intervening decade, particularly at the National: Aricia next to Helen Mirren's Phèdre, Ophelia opposite Rory Kinnear's Hamlet. And she's done plenty of »

The Company of Wolves – Blu-ray Review

9 October 2012 9:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Neil Jordan is best known recently for his worthy dramas along the lines of Breakfast on Pluto or Michael Collins but the man is quite hard to pin down in terms of a specific favoured genre because looking at his filmography he has made some strange choices.

After the low-budget and gritty Angel in 1982, Jordan went for a bizarre horror cum fairy tale story which was financed by the soon to be defunct Palace Pictures. Based on the short story writing of Angela Carter and co-written by her and Jordan, The Company of Wolves is a strange Chinese box of a movie which just about holds up in these modern times.

Starting in present day (well 1984) we meet a girl (Sara Patterson) who is very much trapped in her own world and spends all day in bed much to her parents and sister’s chagrin. The girl dreams back to »

Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies

11 September 2012 7:58 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Brace yourselves. This list of the Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies is probably going to generate some howls of protest thanks to a rather major upset in the rankings. Frankly, one that surprised the hell out of us here at AfterElton.

But before we get to that, an introduction. A few weeks ago we asked AfterElton readers to submit up to ten of their favorite films by write-in vote. We conducted a similar poll several years ago, but a lot has happened culturally since then, and a number of worthy movies of gay interest have been released. We wanted to see how your list of favorites had changed.

We also wanted to expand our list to 100 from the top 50 we had done previously. We figured there were finally enough quality gay films to justify the expansion. And we wanted to break out gay documentaries onto their own list (You'll find the »

Watch: First Clip From Neil Jordan's Vampire Tale 'Byzantium,' With Saoirse Ronan

7 September 2012 8:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's been a while since Neil Jordan dipped back into the horror well. In the past decade he's tackled a glossy studio revenge movie ("The Brave One"), a mermaid tale ("Ondine"), a high-profile remake ("The Good Thief") and whatever the hell "Breakfast on Pluto" was. (He was also busy supervising the television series "The Borgias.") Well, Jordan is about to return to his roots with the vampire tale "Byzantium," set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. How about watching the first (squishy) clip? We're not sure exactly what's going in the clip, provided by Empire, but it features Saoirse Ronan's character Eleanor and Caleb Landry-Jones' Frank. Frank seems to be bleeding quite badly and Eleanor, a vampire, can't resist sucking at the bloody rags he leaves behind. Ick. It's a fairly gooey clip, and Ronan's garb shows off Jordan's penchant for fairy tale imagery »

20 Films We Can't Wait to See in Toronto

5 September 2012 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

As much as we love all that summer has to offer, fall is where it's at for true cinephiles. The movie lover's season officially kicks off (according to us, anyway) the same day the annual Toronto International Festival launches every year in early September.

As has been the case for several years now, Toronto serves as a platform for studios to launch their Oscar hopefuls and for smaller indies to find a home (and maybe some awards down the line). "The King's Speech," "Slumdog Millionaire," "Precious" and "The Artist" all played at the festival before going on to Oscar glory while films like "Beginners," "Killer Joe" and "Your Sister's Sister," all came into the event without a distributor, and left with one.

As is usually the case, this year's slate looks supremely promising, with new films from Terence Malick, Ben Affleck, Neil Jordan, Brian De Palma, Joe Wright and a slew of others. »

A host of great actors led by Paul Giamatti join 12 Years A Slave

6 June 2012 12:11 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I thought that after Benedict Cumberbatch had joined Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Paul Dano, and Brad Pitt in 12 Years A Slave we were already on route to a brilliantly acted piece of cinema. But then co-writer/director Steve McQueen said "I'm not going to stop there. Alejandro, what were you thinking?" So now has been reported that Scoot McNairy (Killing Them Softly, Argo), Ruth Negga (Breakfast On Pluto), Sarah Paulson (Serenity) and Garret Dillahunt (The Road, »

'Killing Them Softly' Star Scoot McNairy & Ruth Negga Join Steve McQueen's 'Twelve Years A Slave'

22 May 2012 2:27 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Scoot McNairy is on a hell of a run at the moment. The star of "In Search Of A Midnight Kiss" finally turned heads in a big way with Gareth Edwards' 2010 low-budget spectacular "Monsters," and ever since then he's been the toast of the town: he met for roles in "Prometheus" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," but ended up going down more grounded routes, with parts in Ben Affleck's "Argo"; in Gus Van Sant's "Promised Land" with Matt Damon; in Lynn Shelton's "Touchy Feely"; and in Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly," for which McNairy earned rave reviews at Cannes this morning (read ours right here).

And clearly, he impressed his co-star in that film, Brad Pitt. The megastar is gearing up to produce and play a supporting role in "Twelve Years A Slave," directed by "Shame" helmer Steve McQueen, and according to Variety, he's bringing along McNairy, »

First Trailer and Poster for The Samaritan with Samuel L. Jackson

29 March 2012 11:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Samaritan is one of two upcoming lower-budget crime-thrillers starring Samuel L. Jackson. We got our first trailer and poster for Meeting Evil earlier this month, which pits Jackson opposite Luke Wilson, and now we have the trailer and poster debut for Jackson’s latest offering, The Samaritan.

Directed and co-written by David Weaver, the film also stars Luke Kirby (the upcoming Take This Waltz) as Jackson’s son, Ruth Negga (Breakfast on Pluto), and the great Tom Wilkinson (RocknRolla).

“After twenty-five years in prison, Foley is finished with the grifter’s life. When he meets an elusive young woman named Iris, the possibility of a new start looks real. But his past is proving to be a stubborn companion: Ethan, the son of his former partner, has an ingenious plan and he wants Foley in. The harder Foley tries to escape his past, the tighter he is ensnared in Ethan’.s web of secrets, »

The shift to filming in glorious 35mm has opened new doors of creative storytelling for the crew of Merlin, and the evidence is clear in the lush cinematography and haunting approach to “Lamia,” an all-new episode Merlin premiering Friday, February 24, at 10 p.m. Et/Pt only on Syfy.

The episode sets Merlin and several Knights of the Round Table on the road to a distant village to help treat those inflicted with a mysterious illness – but the young warlock quickly discovers he is the one in danger. As the Knights become increasingly bewitched by an alluring young woman named Lamia, Merlin finds himself with only Gwen as an ally as he’s lured into a game of cat and mouse against an unseen enemy more deadly than he could possibly imagine.

Lamia is played by actress Charlene McKenna, who is currently featured as the heroine of the popular Irish television series Raw. »
