Nas opens Tribeca Film Festival with 'Illmatic' documentary and concert

17 April 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York (AP) — The raw New York lyricism of Nas kicked off the 13th annual Tribeca Film Festival with an exuberant hip-hop beat. Tribeca opened Wednesday night with the premiere of "Time Is Illmatic," a documentary about the creation of Nas' landmark 1994 debut album, "Illmatic." The Queens native Nas followed the screening at Manhattan's Beacon Theatre with a performance of the nine-track album, widely considered a rap classic for its angry but earnest street poetry. Tribeca co-founder Robert De Niro introduced the film as not just about the making of an album, but "about the making of an artist here in our hometown." Whereas many films about an album have stuck largely to the song-writing process and track recording, "Time Is Illmatic," directed by the filmmaker One9, summons the Queensbridge housing projects upbringing of Nas and the forces — his parents, 1980s Queens, early hip-hop — that shaped his music.

Tribeca: Between Nas and 'Begin Again,' what are the festival's must-see movies

16 April 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.

After more than a decade of growth, Tribeca is also entering »

The Almeida Wins Big At The Olivier Awards 2014

15 April 2014 5:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Almeida Theatre was one of the big winners on Sunday night as the theatre scooped eight awards through West End transfers Chimerica and Ghosts at The Oliver Awards 2014.

Chimerica pulled off five awards including Best New Play and Best Director for Lyndsey Turner while Lesley Manville was named Best Actress for her role in Ghosts, which also won Best Revival and Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Jack Lowden.

The Best New Musical went to new hit The Book of Mormon which also took the Best Actor award for Gavin Creel. However, when it came to classic favourites, it was Les Misérables which won the BBC Radio 2 Audience Award as voted for by the public, proving the show still delivers after all these years.

There were fourteen live performances on the night including Abba’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus who reunited as part of a show finale »

Theatre: Once the Musical Review

11 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Once is a rare wonder of a show. Based on the Oscar-winning film, this Tony and Grammy-scooping musical will wound and lift your heart and demands to be seen. And if you can, see it before May 10th for a chance to witness Arthur Darvill stepping firmly out of the shadow of Doctor Who to deliver a performance of tremendous power and nuance.

He’d already been captivating as the local vicar in ITV’s brilliant Broadchurch but here, as the bashful, simply-named ‘Guy’ to Zrinka Cvitešić’s gregarious and sweet ‘Girl’, Darvill’s presence, vulnerability and impressive singing confirms he’s a young British actor to be reckoned with.

That said, he’s blessed with some fantastic material in a gorgeously rendered show. A ramshackle band play on the stage of the Phoenix Theatre as you take your seats, with the boards that played host to Blood Brothers for »

Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo try to Begin Again in New Trailer

1 April 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Seven years ago, writer-director John Carney's musical drama Once became an indie hit as it explored the lives of two musicians and the emotional impact of creating music together. Carney's latest, Begin Again, explored similar themes, as evidenced by it debuting last fall at the Toronto International Film Festival under its original title Can a Song Save Your Life?.

"Many of the big decisions of my life were made with the record playing," Carney told THR last September, days after the movie screened. "What I would like to see people come away with for this film is music is integral to the way we communicate and the way we make decisions."

Like Once, Begin Again focuses on a music-making couple, this time played by Keira Knightley and Adam Levine, who move to New York as a songwriting team but soon break up. Knightley's Gretta is left to pick up »

We have the poster and two photos for the latest film from writer-director John Carney (Once; Zonad). Begin Again is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together, starring Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo.

Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his newfound fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City. »

‘Begin Again’ Trailer: A Musical Comedy About Bouncing Back

29 March 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Originally released in 2006, Once was one of the rare small-budget, foreign-produced movies that managed to capture the imaginations of stateside audiences. The spare, spry romantic musical managed to garner much attention during the following awards season, ultimately earning an Oscar for Best Original Song.

Though Once director John Carney (Zonad) hasn’t been idle in the years since his big hit, neither has he helmed anything remotely as successful as that title. Thus, it will be interesting if he can recapture that sense of lo-fi musical magic with Begin Again, a Hollywood-backed romantic comedy starring Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Keira Knightley (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit).

Begin Again‘s first trailer follows these headliners as a pair of New Yorkers whose lives are suddenly derailed, leaving them to sort out the pieces. Ruffalo plays Dan, ...

Watch: 'Begin Again' Trailer and Poster, Starring Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo

29 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I saw Begin Again at last year's Toronto Film Festival when it was called Can a Song Save Your Lifec and while some enjoyed it, I pretty much hated it, calling it "a soap opera-level melodrama that takes everything good writer/director John Carney achieved with Once seven years ago and flushes it down the toilet." Of course, the Weinstein Co. would disagree, having paid $7 million for distribution rights with a promise to spend $20 million to market it. Their plot synopsis goes like this: Begin Again is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. »

Keira Knightley's Begin Again Sings A Familiar Tune With First Trailer

29 March 2014 12:18 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy What could either be a wonderful or horrifying film to double feature with the Coen brothers. Inside Llewyn Davis, Begin Again stars Keira Knightley as Gretta, a British musician whose American dream was never realized, and Mark Ruffalo is just the ex-record executive who can change her life forever. Picture me saying that in the most life-affirming way possible, because that.s the kind of inflection this pic.s first trailer inspires. This is the seventh film from Once director John Carney, who seems to be trying to recapture that film.s acclaim by injecting a similarly music-heavy motif into a more generic story. As trailers go, it.s pretty jarring, and the music is easily the worst part, bouncing the tone from indie comedy to inspirational studio drama to music biopic and back again. As Dan, »

‘Begin Again’, the new film from John Carney, releases its first trailer

28 March 2014 5:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the surprise critical hits of the cinematic year in 2007 was the musical Once. Acclaim from the film community went to the film’s stars, as well as writer and director John Carney. Fans of the filmmaker were thus excited to hear that his next project would see him once again return to the musical world. Titled Begin Again, following a name change from Can a Song Save Your Life, Carney once again takes the directing reins, working from a screenplay written by himself. The cast includes Mark Ruffalo, Kiera Knightley, Hailee Steinfeld, Catherine Keener, Mos Def, and Adam Levine. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

‘Begin Again’ Trailer: Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley Make Music With Help From Two ‘Voice’ Hosts

28 March 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When Inside Llewyn Davis hit theaters late last year, it showed audiences that being a solo acoustic artist on a small record label was anything but ideal, and the farthest thing from glamorous. But apparently the industry has changed quite a bit since the ’60s, because all it really takes nowadays to beat the competition in those dreary streets of New York City is for Mark Ruffalo to hear your song in a smokey bar and declare you a sensation. That’s it! Well, okay, there’s a little more to it than just Ruffalo’s undivided attention. There are Central Park boats involved and Cee Lo Green‘s wisdom to understand. The trailer for Begin Again, which is the new title for Toronto Film Festival favorite Can a Song Save Your Life? (and a blissful rename at that — what a terrible first try that had been) sets off to show all this and more when Ruffalo »

Sad Songs Say So Much In Begin Again Trailer

28 March 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a successful, crowd-pleasing run at the Toronto International Film Festival, the new music drama from Once director John Carney had a title change, moving from an awkward moniker to a rather generic one. Formerly known as Can a Song Save Your Life?, Begin Again is a more polished-looking, sunny-feeling film than Carney’s 2007 musical gem, which won an Oscar for its stirring love song, “Falling Slowly.”

The first trailer for Begin Again appeared online today and hopes to charm moviegoers up for another round of strong, low-key tunes from a variety of actors and musicians. Also, it features Adam Levine in a role as an egotistical singer, which probably fits within his range.

In the drama, set for a limited release on July 4th, Mark Ruffalo plays record executive Dan, who is fired from his New York label. He pins his hopes on aspiring musician Gretta (Keira Knightley), who »

Trailer for Once Director's New Film Begin Again with Mark Ruffalo

28 March 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Once director John Carney is back with another music based movie called Begin Again. I loved the film Once, and I was hoping that we'd get another movie from the filmmaker. The movie stars Mark Ruffalo as an ex-record label executive who comes in contact with a broken hearted Keira Knightley as she is performing one of her songs at a bar in New York City. From there they form an unexpected relationship. It looks like another great film from Carney. The movie also stars Adam Levine, Hailee Steinfeld, Catherine Keener, Mos Def, and CeeLo Green. Here's the synopsis:

Written and directed by John Carney, Begin Again is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who come to New York when he lands a deal with a major label. »
