Olivia Colman takes on the Tyrannosaur

9 September 2011 10:04 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From Peep Show to Rev, Olivia Colman usually brings out the comedy in her hapless onscreen husbands. But this time her role as an abused wife in Paddy Considine's Tyrannosaur is deadly serious

Olivia Colman says that the first time they met, she opened the door to Paddy Considine, grinned and that was that. He knew he wanted her. Love at first sight.

But it's not quite as dreamy as it sounds. Hannah, the female lead in Considine's first feature, Tyrannosaur, is possibly the most humiliated woman in the history of cinema. A good Samaritan who runs a local charity shop, she is verbally eviscerated by the raging stranger who bullies his way into her life. He berates her goody-goody Christianity and cosy values, while the reality is that at home her husband horrendously abuses her. Astonishingly, Colman manages to bring a sense of hope, transcendence even, to this unremittingly bleak world. »

Lucy Punch On For The Wedding Video

24 August 2011 5:03 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Weddings have often been a fertile ground for cinematic comedies, particularly over here (Four Weddings, Confetti etc.) and now Calendar Girls duo Nigel Cole and Tim Firth are looking to reap the laughter harvest once more with their new film The Wedding Video. They’ve just recruited Lucy Punch, Robert Webb and Rufus Hound to star.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Video will take on English society weddings in a mockumentary style similar to Spinal Tap, with a hapless best man coming up with the best gift he can think of for his pal and the bride: a filmed diary of their nuptials. Naturally, it all goes a bit wrong.Punch, of course, was last seen walking away with Bad Teacher and has been making a name for herself across the Pond. Webb has experience with wedding mishaps having appeared in Confetti, but was most recently on screen in Magicians. »

Hugh Grant Takes The Lead In The Pirates! Band Of Misfits

An Aardman Production For Sony Pictures Animation Martin Freeman, David Tennant, Imelda Staunton, Jeremy Piven, Salma Hayek, Brian Blessed, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen Also On Board

Culver City, Calif. – Hugh Grant will voice the lead role alongside an all-star cast in The Pirates! Band Of Misfits, the new stop-motion, 3D, animated film produced by Aardman Animations for Sony Pictures Animation. The film, which will be distributed by Columbia Pictures, will be released March 30, 2012 in North America.

Hugh Grant, starring in his first animated role, is the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to »
