Kidman weeps in Rabbit Hole, revels in home life

15 December 2010 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Nicole Kidman is giving audiences grief with her latest drama, Rabbit Hole, playing a disconsolate woman coping with the death of her child.

Yet 10 years after one of Hollywood's most-publicized splits, the breakup of her marriage to Tom Cruise, Kidman is in the happiest of places, with little to sob about.

After a shaky few years when she made such duds as The Stepford Wives, Bewitched, The Golden Compass and The Invasion, Kidman is back in Academy Awards contention for the first time since back-to-back nominations for 2001's Moulin Rouge! and 2002's The Hours, which earned her a best-actress Oscar. »

Nicole Kidman Talks Love Of Nesting, Trouble Getting Pregnant

15 December 2010 5:29 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Los Angeles — Nicole Kidman is giving audiences grief with her latest drama, "Rabbit Hole," playing a disconsolate woman coping with the death of her child.

Yet 10 years after one of Hollywood's most-publicized splits, the breakup of her marriage to Tom Cruise, Kidman is in the happiest of places, with little to sob about.

After a shaky few years when she made such duds as "The Stepford Wives," "Bewitched," "The Golden Compass" and "The Invasion," Kidman is back in Academy Awards contention for the first time since back-to-back nominations for 2001's "Moulin Rouge!" and 2002's "The Hours," which earned her a best-actress Oscar.

Kidman also is a producer on "Rabbit Hole," opening Friday as the first release from her production company, Blossom Films.

She's four years into her marriage with country music star Keith Urban. Kidman, who had a miscarriage while married to Cruise, now has a 2-year-old daughter with Urban. »

The Tourist Review

10 December 2010 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Lives of Others director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck returns to cinema screens with his first Us feature (and follow up to his Oscar-winning debut) – the Johnny Depp/Angelina Jolie headlining romantic thriller, The Tourist.

In a plot which bears more than a passing resemblance to this summer’s underperformer Knight and Day, The Tourist finds a heavier-than-usual Depp playing against type as a mild-mannered American maths teacher who meets a mysterious (is there any other type in this kind of film?) English beauty (played by Jolie), in a seemingly chance encounter on a train to Venice. We’re soon thrust into a world of espionage when it’s revealed that she is using her potential love interest as a decoy to throw the British secret service off her trail as she searches for her lover who has gone Awol, partly due to owing a ridiculous amount of moolah to »

Skyline Video Blow-out! Video Interviews, Behind-the-Scenes Footage and More!

11 November 2010 11:37 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

With the opening of the alien invasion thriller Skyline on Friday, November 12, 2010, what better way is there to get the excitement going than to share with everyone a bumper crop of video interviews with the cast and crew of the film? On top of that, we also got our hands on a very cool behind-the-scenes video clip documenting the magic of filmmaking in several scenes.

Synopsis:

In the sci-fi thriller Skyline, strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame. Once outdoors, a terrifying extraterrestrial force begins to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth. In a matter of hours, we will all be gone.

Jarrod (Eric Balfour of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Elaine’s (Scottie Thompson of Star Trek) trip to Southern California was supposed to be a simple weekend away to visit Jarrod’s best friend, »

[First Look] Cage and Kidman in Schumacher’s ‘Trespass’

4 October 2010 11:56 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

So much for Nicole Kidman putting her career back on track. The first image from her upcoming film with Nicolas Cage seems to ensure she’ll have another box office disaster on her hands. [EW]

Directed by schlockmeister (and batsuit nipple enthusiast) Joel Schumacher, Trespass revolves around a couple who must deal with issues of trust and betrayal in their marriage while being held for ransom in their Louisiana home. The thriller also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Dash Mihok, Liana Liberator, Cam Gigandet and Jordana Spiro.

The pairing of Cage and Schumacher (who worked together previously on 8Mm) almost ensures this film will be flat-out ridiculous. Kidman, although sometimes a great actress, is becoming more known for ill-fated box office bombs (The Invasion) and thus her inclusion doesn’t quite add the gravitas to make me believe this will rise above the generic thriller genre. All three, however, can manage greatness and »

[DVD Review] Invasion of the Body Snatchers

22 September 2010 8:10 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The original 1956 Invasion of the Body Snatchers is as pure a manifestation of 1950s Cold War dread as we currently have (short of anything that has yet to be declassified), surpassing compatriots such as The Thing From Another World and The Day The Earth Stood Still in its ability to convey the nervous tension that holds together an environment in which anyone and everyone might be an enemy combatant. But the true horror of Jack Finney’s The Body Snatchers (on which this and all other adaptations have been based) lays not in any particular political subtext, but in its tacit revealing of the fragile treaties that people make with each other to keep their lives in order, and just how easily those can be broken. Perhaps because it was released in one of the most apolitical national moods in recent memory (the Carter administration), the 1978 remake understands this in »

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1978) Blu-ray Review

20 September 2010 1:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Philip Kaufman's take on the Body Snatchers compares unfavorably, I think, with the Don Siegel-directed version from 1956. Of course it would--Siegel had Cold War paranoia going for him while Kaufman mined frustration with post-hippie psychology of reason, which emphasized problem-solving over emotional reactions in interpersonal relationships. The older film benefits from sociopolitical context which has been claimed as both anti-Communist and anti-McCarthyist while the latter carries a less prominent cultural footprint given the relatively narrow scope of its subtext.

Which is not to say that Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) isn't a damned excellent piece of filmmaking that still works on its own merits as a sci-fi thriller. I bring up the Siegel version only because the 1978 film is just slightly on the wrong side of being great, but still taps into the nerviness of the paranoid thrillers of the 70's, alongside greats like The Conversation and The Marathon Man. »

‘Downfall’ Director Oliver Hirschbiegel to Adapt Martin Suter’s Novel ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’

14 September 2010 2:48 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Oliver Hirschbiegel, director of Downfall, hit a little career snag with The Invasion, but started to rebound with Five Minutes of Heaven, and may still be prepping to shoot The Angel Face, about a German mafia hitman. And now he'll reportedly also direct The Dark Side of the Moon, based not on the Pink Floyd album whose cover has adorned every dorm room in America at some point, but on the novel of the same name by Swiss author Martin Suter. (Which was admittedly titled as a gloss on the Floyd disc.) The shoot should begin in the spring, says Variety, in Switzerland, France and Germany. The script is by David Marconi, of Live Free or Die Hard and Enemy of the State, so I'm guessing for now that this is an English-language production. No casting has been announced at this point; getting some names will help clear up the »

Hirschbiegel Finds Dark Side Of The Moon

14 September 2010 11:51 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

German director Oliver Hirschbiegel, who made Downfall (which spawned surely the most popular ‘net movie meme in recent history) and suffered through studio problems with The Invasion, has signed on to tackle an adaptation of Swiss writer Martin Stuter’s novel Die dunkle Seite des Mondes – The Dark Side of the Moon.Die Hard 4.0 scribe David Marconi has written the script for the movie, which is Not an adaptation of the Pink Floyd album of the same name and instead will find a successful lawyer indulging in some magic mushrooms and embarking on a trip that makes him realise that his materialistic life is not all it’s cracked up to be. So what does he do? He begins withdrawing from society, of course."It's highly unique storytelling and I'm excited that Oliver Hirschbiegel, one of my favourite directors, will direct," producer Karl Spoerri tells Variety.Hirschbiegel has had better luck in recent years, »

Hirschbiegel To Trip On Mushrooms With ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’

14 September 2010 8:53 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Oliver Hirschbiegel, the Oscar-nominated director of Downfall has set up a new project, the thriller The Dark Side of the Moon. [Variety]

It is written by David Marconi, who penned Enemy of the State and Live Free or Die Hard. Based on the to selling novel by Martin Suter, it tells the story of “a successful attorney whose life is turned upside down after a mind-opening mushroom trip. Realizing that all he has strived for has ceased to make sense, he begins to withdraw from society.”

Hirschbiegel’s last two films haven’t quite lived up to Downfall, so I’m excited to see him take on a more interesting project. I hated The Invasion, but Five Minutes of Heaven had moments of promise. Mushroom tripping sounds like a new adventure for the talented director.

Shooting begins next spring in Switzerland, Germany and France with the cast being decided in a few weeks. »

Update on Stephen King's 'Pet Sematary' Remake

1 July 2010 2:37 PM, PDT | Horrorbid | See recent Horrorbid news »

Of course with today's remake trend we knew it was only a matter of time before our beloeved Stephen King novel and fan boy flick would be remade. Is it nessacary? Of course not. Will we see it? Yes, but I am sure we will be urning for the pressense of the late, legendary Fred Gwynne who portrayed Jud like we imagine no one else will be able to...

We've known and reported on this project in the past but today David Kajganich, writer of screen plays for "The Invasion" and "Blood Creek" gave the latest he knows about the remake that until now has been dead in the water.

From what Kajganich says in the interview below, "Pet Sematary" seems to be going in the right direction at least on paper.

Kajganish Dishes Info On 'It' And 'Pet Sematary' Remakes

1 July 2010 11:33 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It's always been a matter of time before the Stephen King properties began receiving the remake treatment. For a little while we've been reading about the murmurs of "Pet Sematary" and Stephen King's "It" getting updated features, but it has not gone anywhere past development. David Kajganich, writer of screen plays for "The Invasion" and "Blood Creek" gave the latest he knows on the two remakes. From what Kajganich says in the interview below, both "Pet Sematary" and "It" seem to be going in the right direction at least on paper. I should say up front that Pet Sematary is my favorite King novel and adapting it was one of the best screenwriting experiences I’ve had, creatively speaking. In its modern way, I think it is easily the equal of anything in the literary canon by Hawthorne or Poe, so I approached the book as a piece of »

Screenwriter David Kajganich gives an update on Stephen King's It

1 July 2010 10:06 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Writing this article, I'm sort of terrified. The small screen adaptation of Stephen King's It gave me nightmares for 3 months or so. I keep flashing back to that damn Pennywise the clown under the storm drain...stop looking at me clown! A website called Lilja's Library spoke to the new screenwriter for the big screen remake of the 1990's TV movie. Warner Bros. hired David Kajganich, who wrote 2007's The Invasion starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig. This is a rather lengthy »

Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage Will 'Trespass' For Joel Schumacher

16 June 2010 7:03 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

The last year or so has seen Nicole Kidman seek out more action-oriented projects. While The Invasion and The Interpreter didn't set the box office on fire, she remains undaunted. As she develops The Eighth Wonder (which lets her play a Lara Croft / Indiana Jones action-archaeologist), she's decided to share weapons with that King of Eccentricity, Nicolas Cage. According to Variety, Kidman and Cage are pairing up for the thriller Trespass, and it's a casting coup that's just full of kooky possibilities. But it's being directed by Joel Schumacher, so I imagine those will go untapped.

Trespass centers on a husband and wife who are taken hostage by four very bad men. These thugs think Kidman and Cage are the ticket to easy money, but naturally, complications ensue. Variety mentions there's "betrayal and deception", which could just mean its a remake of Kidman's Malice. (Spoiler alert?)

Take Three: Veronica Cartwright

25 May 2010 3:48 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Craig here with the first in a new Film Experience series: Take Three. Each Sunday I'll write about a different character/supporting actor's work through three of their most notable films.

First up is Veronica Cartwright.

Take One: Lambert's Game (not Ripley's)

Through circumstance or by design, Veronica Cartwright's career, more than most, epitomises the accomplished character actor perfectly. She's an ideal starting point for this series by the fact that one of her first major roles was to be the female lead in a certain 1979 sci-fi-horror film. But, upon arriving on the set of Ridley Scott's Alien for a wardrobe fitting, her role was instead re-allocated at the last minute to one Sigourney Weaver. Cartwright could have been sci-final girl Lieutenant Ellen Ripley who went on to destroy several planets/spaceships and save countless people from Xenomorph hell over three more Alien films, but she was given »

Complete List of 50+ Upcoming Horror Remakes

10 May 2010 8:00 PM, PDT | MoviesOnline.ca | See recent MoviesOnline news »

Horror remakes are definitely the hot new trend in Hollywood and I had no idea just how many remakes were being planned until I sat down and drew up a list of as many as I could find. I stopped at 7 pages and needless to say it seems that just about every movie you can imagine is getting a remake-prequel or reboot into 3D.

Here is a pretty complete list of upcoming horror remakes as of today in alphabetical order. Note: There are a few on this list that are only in the early phases of discussion and in some cases I included franchise reboots as well.

13 Tzameti: Starting the list off 13 Tzameti is more thriller then horror but still worthy of making the list. The film which started filming in New York awhile back will star Mickey Rourke and Jason Statham. The original film is a tale of Russian roulette with gruesome outcomes. »

[DVD Review] Five Minutes of Heaven

26 April 2010 3:11 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

A world away from the overblown, star vehicles of the nineties, the likes of Patriot Games, The Devils Own, and Blown Away, 2008 saw a rash of small, intimate dramas about "The Troubles" - the innocuous sounding name given to the period of ethnic violence surrounding Northern Ireland, circa late 1960's to late 1990's, during which some 3500 people were killed. Prison drama Hunger showcased the staggering levels of self-destruction people were prepared to commit to in service to ideology, Fifty Dead Men Walking explored the conflicted loyalty and paranoia of an undercover operative, and here Five Minutes of Heaven, easily the simplest of the three and yet the most ambitious, charts the cyclical nature of violence and our struggle to break free from it.

In only his second English language film following the disastrous Bodysnatchers remake The Invasion, German director Oliver Hirschbiegel once again demonstrates, as he did in Downfall, an »

Nicole Kidman In The Wedding Doctor

10 March 2010 12:22 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Romance is in the air! And this time brought to you by an Australian angel, Nicole Kidman.

We all know this lady didn’t have much luck lately, and we could call her current phase something like ’series of flops’.

On the other hand, she’s dealing with some critics out there that say Kidman should definitely try to find some good role that would bring her reputation back. Can The Wedding Doctor be Nicole’s big comeback?

That’s exactly the title of the new movie that already sounded like some female version of well-known Hitch.

In the film, Kidman would play a relationship analyst who advises couples on their interpersonal dynamics before they marry. But after she meets her latest clients, the doc decides she’d actually be a better match for the groom-to-be, triggering a showdown with his fiancée.

But as we said, nobody was very interested in details about the movie, »
