Pan Helmer Joe Wright Will Direct Bryce Dallas Howard And Alice Eve In Episode Of Black Mirror Season 3

11 February 2016 1:40 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joe Wright is swapping the glitz and glam of the blockbuster space – Pan did bomb last summer, mind you – to helm an episode of Charlie Brooker’s button-pressing anthology series Black Mirror.

Word comes by way of Deadline, reporting that Wright will helm one episode of the show’s much-anticipated third season, and it’ll star Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World) and Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness). No specifics were disclosed at this time, and we imagine story details will remain firmly locked away until the season’s premiere later in the year.

Before dipping his toe into big-budget filmmaking with Pan, Wright carved out a name for himself in British cinema after directing period dramas Pride and Prejudice and Atonement back-to-back. Since then, he’s dabbled with action filmmaking for the Saoirse Ronan-fronted thriller Hanna before adapting the seemingly unadaptable in Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina in »

Best Actress Besties Brie Larson and Saoirse Ronan Honored in Santa Barbara

8 February 2016 11:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Santa Barbara, Calif. — The Santa Barbara International Film Festival displayed the proper foresight in late November last year when selecting “Room” star Brie Larson and “Brooklyn’s” Saoirse Ronan as first-time tandem recipients of the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award: Both have remained out in front of the best actress Oscar race in a year marked by a number of female-centric narratives, and they continue to lock horns heading into the Feb. 28 Academy Awards ceremony.

Of course, nothing approaching competitive awareness was on display Monday night as the two ingenues — who have been previously recognized by Sbiff in the Virtuosos sidebar — enjoyed their dual tributes. In fact, they’ve become quite close on the circuit.

Alas, circumstances kept them apart this time — the production of “Kong: Skull Island,” to be specific. The blockbuster sequel has filled Larson’s schedule all season as she has bounced from locations in Vietnam, »

Saoirse Ronan's path to success started at a young age: the Brooklyn actress received her first Oscar nomination at only 13. So how did she successfully navigate through early stardom (an area where others often falter)? Her mother's guidance. Ronan, 21, tells New York magazine that having her mom Monica on set when she was working on things like 2007's Atonement added stability to her Hollywood experience.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Ali and Nino’

5 February 2016 10:23 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A young Azerbaijani nobleman falls for a Georgian princess, crossing religions (he’s Muslim, she’s Eastern Orthodox), cultural backgrounds and even ambitions for their country’s future in “Ali and Nino,” and though we take it on faith that this photogenic couple love each other very deeply, director Asif Kapadia’s handsome yet relatively heartless big-screen adaptation confuses romance for beautiful imagery, leaving us cold. Perhaps Kapadia, having delved so deeply into the real-world dreams of “Senna” and “Amy,” simply couldn’t resist the opportunity to simplify Kurban Said’s pseudonymous 1937 literary classic, stripping the material of all but its most David Lean-ian grandeur. Unfortunately, the Oscar-nominated nonfiction helmer’s return to fable-like narrative filmmaking captivates more with its exotic landscapes than with anything that occurs between its characters.

Admittedly, the landscapes in question seldom grace American screens, and despite the fact that the average moviegoer couldn’t locate Azerbaijan on a map, »

'Pandemic' Trailer Pulls You Directly Into the Zombie Apocalypse

1 February 2016 6:34 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in January 2015, we reported that Content Media has acquired distribution rights for a new zombie thriller entitled Pandemic, which gives viewers a first-person perspective on this apocalyptic event. Almost exactly one year later, we finally have the first trailer and poster for this movie, with Content Media setting an April 1 release date. As you can see in the trailer below, this isn't your typical zombie movie, putting you right in the middle of the undead action.

Pandemic is set in the near future, where a virus of epic proportions has overtaken the planet. There are more infected than uninfected, and humanity is losing its grip on survival. Its only hope is finding a cure and keeping the infected contained. Lauren (Rachel Nichols) is a doctor, who, after the fall of New York, comes to Los Angeles to lead the charge in the hunt for uninfected civilian survivors. Lauren's objective »

[Sundance Review] Ali and Nino

30 January 2016 6:30 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There is nary a film genre more tried and true than the war-time romance. From Casablanca to Doctor Zhivago to The English Patient, the structure allows for a micro conflict injected into a macro scenario. From a script by Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liasons, Atonement), adapted from the novel under the pseudonym Kurban Said, and directed by Asif Kapadia (SennaAmy), Ali and Nino strives for the status of epic but falls considerably short.

Starring Adam Bakri as Ali Khan Shirvanshir, a young Muslim Azerbaijani man who falls in love with Nino Kipiani (María Valverde), a Georgian princess, the film is set in and around Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan on the brink of the Bolshevik Revolution. The couple hopes to marry quickly, but the rumblings of war postpone everything. Nino’s parents (Mandy Patinkin and a woefully-miscast Connie Nielsen) are convinced the conflict will be over in months. Ali won’t have it, »

A Never-Before-Seen Age Difference in this Year’s Best Actress Race

19 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

One of the tightest races in this year’s Oscar season is that for the best actress statuette. There are past winners such as Cate Blanchett, who earned a best actress Oscar for Blue Jasmine in 2014 and a best supporting actress award for The Aviator in 2004, and Jennifer Lawrence, who won best actress in Silver Linings Playbook in 2013, previous nominees like Saoirse Ronan, who earned a best supporting actress nom for Atonement in 2008, and first-time nominees Brie Larson, who plays a young mother held captive in Room, and Charlotte Rampling, who plays a wife whose 45th wedding anniversary is upended by the arrival of a mysterious letter in 45 Years.

The most interesting factoid about this year’s best actress race, however, is the disparity in age between the competitors. Three of the five women are aged 26 years or below, with Ronan at 21, Lawrence at 25, and Larson at 26 while Rampling, »

Saoirse Ronan Reflects on ‘Brooklyn’: ‘I’d Never Been Involved in Something so Personal’

6 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Within the few minutes of “Brooklyn’s” debut screening at Sundance (and in the States), director John Crowley realized he had something big on his hands.

“We were so tense and anxious and, by about five minutes in, there was a little giggle, and you could feel the audience just sort of settle in with it,” he recalled at the intimate soiree Fox Searchlight and Burberry hosted for “Brooklyn” at the Beverly Hills Burberry story on Rodeo Drive Tuesday night. “You could hear a pin drop, and it’s a very satisfying silence — the kind of silence you long to hear, which is, the silence of an audience enjoying receiving a story.”

What does he think viewers connected to — both in that moment, and in the year that’s followed (during which he’s been flooded with emotional notes)? “Leaving home,” he said, after a pause, with conviction. “(It connects »
