Did the 2007 Oscars get it right?

22 February 2017 11:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 24, 2017

It’s Oscar weekend! But how well do the Academy Award choices of ten years ago hold up? We’ve taken a look...

The Academy Awards are the highest profile snapshot of what films are highly rated within 12 months of their release. What they can’t predict, however, is how well regarded their choices will age, and only time can tell you that. Which is why I thought it’d be interesting to go back a decade, and see how the winners of the 79th Academy Awards, handed out on February 25th 2007, stack up ten years on…

Best Picture: The Departed

Also nominated:

Babel Letters From Iwo Jima Little Miss Sunshine The Queen

At the time, there was a little bit of acceptance that The Departed was the Scent Of A Woman moment. That just as Al Pacino got rewarded for good work in a film that’s not his finest, »

Warner Bros. has released a brand new trailer for director Guy Ritchie’s upcoming action epic King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which features Charlie Hunnam as Arthur Pendragon alongside a cast that also includes Jude Law, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, and Eric Bana.

Behold the new trailer for Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur

20 February 2017 10:16 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Guy Ritchie is about to deliver his own take on another English legend. Following his dalliance in Late Victorian London with Sherlock Holmes Ritchie and Co. are taking us back even further with Charlie Hunnam taking on the beard and mantle of King Arthur. Today a new trailer gave us a new look at what we’re to expect when the film is released on the 12th of May.

The song of the titular monarch has been sung often, however you can imagine that the director will bring his own sense of style and kinetic frenzy to proceedings. From what we’ve seen so far it has all this and more, with Hunnam providing a particularly grimy king.

 

Leaping into the fray with King Hunnam are Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Jude Law, Eric Bana, and Djimon Honsou.  Hermione Corfield, recently seen in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, is one »

From nothing comes a new TV spot for Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie

23 January 2017 1:52 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

With Robin Hood: Origins in the pipeline with Taron Egerton it seems the myths and legends of England’s green and pleasant land are fair game and in fashion once more. Guy Ritchie, having taken Sherlock Holmes to dizzying new levels of pugilism rather than faithful pulchritude, is going back in time again. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is the full title for Ritchie’s take on the legend of Excalibur, and the new TV spot is truly something else.

Placing Charlie Hunnam in the lead role was a fairly astute move. The actor seems perfect for the grimy, full-bearded experience of becoming a king. In this new spot he is given the spotlight and runs with it, once with a neat shoulder-mounted camera. There is a whole host of ridiculous action shots, but we’ve come to expect a certain visual flourish from Ritchie. It seems he won’t disappoint. »

Top 10 performances directed by Martin Scorsese

Top 10 performances directed by Martin ScorseseTop 10 performances directed by Martin ScorseseShane McNeil1/4/2017 11:30:00 Am

On January 6th 2017, Martin Scorsese's passion project Silence finally hits the big screen.

Based on the Japanese novel by Shûsaku Endô, Silence tells the story of two Jesuit priests who face torture and persecution after traveling to Japan to find their mentor and spread the word of Catholicism. It's bound to be a heavy handed film, and with Scorsese directing, we wouldn't be wrong to expect another masterpiece from the legendary filmmaker.

Here he directs stars Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver and Liam Neeson, the three of which look to be Oscar contenders for their performances. While none of them have been nominated by the Golden Globes or the Screen Actors Guild, there's a good chance the very late in the year release of Silence (it plays just in time in New York and Los »
