Mr. Holmes movie review: the case of the missing myth

22 July 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It looks lovely and Ian McKellen is amazing, of course, but it’s not very Holmesian. I suspect Holmes himself would snort in derision at its sentimentality. I’m “biast” (pro): big fan of Sherlock Holmes and Ian McKellen

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I love Sherlock Holmes in all his many incarnations, and when I heard that director Bill Condon was making a movie about an elderly Holmes played by Ian McKellan, I cheered. The two had previously collaborated on the wonderful Gods and Monsters — about the classic Frankenstein filmmaker James Whale in his later years — so this new film was bound to be great, wasn’t it? I was a tad sorry to learn that Mr. Holmes, though based on a novel, was not based on the fabulous Mary Russell »

Pan preview footage reaction: Director Joe Wright speaks

16 July 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This morning in central London, we were treated to around 15 minutes of new footage from director Joe Wright’s upcoming fantasy/adventure, Pan. The film, which stars Hugh Jackman as the movie’s lead villain Blackbeard, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lilly, Garrett Hedlund as Hook and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter, arrives in cinemas in October.

When Joe Wright‘s Pan was announced, I must admit to being one of those who rolled his eyes at the thought of a new re-imagining of J.M. Barrie’s classic tale. In the very near past we’ve had the likes of Peter Pan (2003), Finding Neverland, and even last year’s TV special Peter Pan Live on our screens, and it seems too soon to take a trip back. Does the world need another movie? It is very clear from the footage that Warner Bros. showed off this morning that director Joe Wright »

Following on from its panel at the San Diego Comic-Con [which you can watch here], Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for director Joe Wright’s upcoming Peter Pan origin tale Pan. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

From director Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”) comes “Pan,” a live-action feature presenting a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie.

Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly.  Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland.  There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his »

5 things we learned about Hugh Jackman's Pan at Comic-Con

14 July 2015 9:51 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Director Joe Wright and Pan cast Hugh JackmanLevi Miller, and Garrett Hedlund brought exclusive new footage of their Peter Pan fantasy film to the fans in Hall H at Comic-Con.

The movie, which features a new take on J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan tale comes to theatres in October.  Here are five things we learned about what audiences can expect from the film:

The movie is a complete re-framing of the story of Peter Pan.  It’s an origin story about how Peter became Pan in a time before Captain Hook lost his hand to that pesky crocodile.  Newcomer Levi Miller is the young Peter with Garrett Hedlund as the sympathetic and hook-less Hook and Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily.  What would Peter Pan do without a pirate nemesis? Enter Hugh Jackman who plays the dreaded pirate Blackbeard. Joe Wright (Atonement), promises that this is a family-friendly Neverland like we’ve never seen before. »

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

28 May 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Brit director Joe Wright is stepping back into period garb to direct "The Lifeboat," reports Deadline.

"Castaway" scribe William Broyles Jr., fittingly, is writing this script and executive-producing.

DVD Review: 'Testament of Youth'

26 May 2015 5:14 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ James Kent's magnificent feature debut Testament of Youth (2014), based on Vera Brittain's bestselling memoir about the First World War, is a real tearjerker that should move male and female audiences alike and appeal to fans of Joe Wright's Atonement (2007). Screenwriter Juliette Towhidi (Love, Rosie) focuses on Brittain's coming of age - from the rural idyll where she grew up, through the hallowed halls of Oxford, to the horrors of war - the loss she endured and the carnage she witnessed. All naturally led her down the path of pacifism. Vera (Alicia Vikander, Ex Machina), is desperate to study at Oxford but her father (Dominic West) disapproves of her academic ambition.

Rave Reviews For MacBeth As It Opens At Cannes 2015; New Clips Feature Michael Fassbender And Marion Cotillard

#Redcarpet MacBeth by Justin Kurzel #Cannes2015 pic.twitter.com/Lwz4dMT3Wc

— Festival de Cannes (@Festival_Cannes) May 23, 2015

Of all of William Shakespeare’s classic works, Macbeth must surely be amongst his most famous.

Certainly, in the more than 400 years since its first publication, it has been one of the most frequently adapted; revived regularly on stage and re-envisioned time and again in the age of cinema and television.

Now comes a bold and daring version starring Academy-Award nominee Michael Fassbender (12 Years A Slave) and Academy-Award winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose).

Directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown), MacBeth had its World Premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and was the final movie to screen in Competition.

In his review, Guy Lodge (Variety) praises the director’s “thrillingly elemental new adaptation. Fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it’s a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period.”
