After impressing audiences with the quietly devastating Somersault in 2004, Cate Shortland (pictured) followed up that effort with the 2006 ABC TV telemovie The Silence, starring Richard Roxburgh and Emily Barclay. After quite the absence, Shortland's now back behind the camera, however, with a new film that has just begun shooting in Germany. The film is called Lore and it's a co-production with Germany (and UK participation), based on Rachel Seiffert's Booker-nominated novel, The Dark Room, which explores the dark terrain of Nazi-ruled Germany and the Holocaust. Adapted for the screen by Shortland and British writer Robin Mukherjee, the film is set in the spring of 1945 as the German front collapses and the Allied forces take control. »
The Hangover: Part Two
Opens: May 26th 2011
Director: Todd Phillips
Summary: Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned.
Analysis: It really wasn't until about three months before its release that Warner Brothers realised "The Hangover" was going to be a hit. Test screening response was through the roof, while the trailer had great reaction after premiering at ShoWest and online. About that time they commissioned director Todd Phillips, along with his "Old School" and "Road Trip" scribe Scot Armstrong, to pen a sequel. Yet they still waited to see how the first one went before fully committing to the follow-up.
The wait didn't last long. »
