Six British Movies & TV Shows to Get You in the Mood for the General Election

18 April 2015 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kirsty Capes with six British movies and TV shows to get you in the mood for the General Election…

Despite being a lover of all things available on the big and small screens, Jeremy Paxman and Dimbleby don’t really do it for me as entertaining television. Many of us are sick to the back teeth of watching our glorious Pm candidates squirm under the fluorescent lights of the ITV television studios, or questions about the NHS. While it’s quite nice to laugh at the incompetence of our delightful parliamentary hopefuls and imagine moulding their play-dough-esque faces into different kinds of rotting fruit (just me?), there’s plenty of other ways to get excited for #GE2015 without wanting to throttle yourself with your own hair. Take a browse, for example, through a catalogue of fantastic television and film – where no one fluffs their lines and nearly everyone is better looking than David Cameron. »

15 April 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in March, we reported that Focus Features has acquired North American distribution for the voting rights drama Suffragette, although a domestic release date has not been given at this time. Today, international distributor Pathe has released the first U.K. teaser trailer, featuring Meryl Streep and Carey Mulligan. Suffragette is now set for an October 23 release in the U.S. and an October 30 U.K. debut.

Suffragette is a moving drama that will empower all who are striving for equal rights in our own day and age. The stirring story, inspired by the early-20th-century campaign by the suffragettes for the right of women to vote, centers on Maud (played by Carey Mulligan), a working wife and mother who comes to realize that she must fight for her dignity both at home and in her workplace. Realizing that she is not alone, she becomes an activist alongside other brave »

Suffragette Teaser Trailer Marches Online

15 April 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The election cycle here in Blighty is in full swing, so it seems the right time to look back at a much more vital and impassioned part of political history, the Suffragette movement. A teaser trailer for Sarah Gavron’s Suffragette is now online. Boasting quite the cast – Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, Helen Bonham Carter, Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Duff, Brendan Gleeson and Ben Whishaw among them – Suffragette follows the struggles of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep) and the campaigners around her, who lead an early feminist movement to get equality in voting at a time when women were considered ill-mannered to vote. While their cause was just, it was also not an easy thing to try to turn the giant iceberg that was British politics at the time. The personal cost was great, but the results speak for themselves. It’s just a quick look at this point, but with that cast, »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts About Margaret Thatcher

7 April 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Iron Lady”, “Maggie”, “Attilla the Hen”, and “Thatcher, the Milk Snatcher” – these are just some of the nicknames given to Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s first and to date only female Prime Minister.

Arguably the most-controversial Prime Minister ever, Thatcher served from May 4, 1979, until November 28, 1990, leading her Conservative government through an extremely volatile period of British political, social and economic history.

An advocate of political and economic deregulation, flexible labour markets, the reduction of the power of trade unions and the privatisation of state-owned companies, she created many supporters of her policies that came to be known as “Thatcherism”. However, Thatcher’s decision to take on the trade unions and help bring about the collapse of traditional heavy industry and working-class professions in some of the most-deprived areas of the United Kingdom also led to her being hated by many.

Yet, despite the fact Thatcher divides opinion like no other political figure, »

Writers, directors gain share of BFI ‘Locked Box’ recoupment

27 March 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

‘Locked Box’ scheme has previously been tapped into by UK producers.

UK writers, directors and producers are now to share an equal third of the BFI’s ‘Locked Box’ recoupment.

Directors UK, Pact and The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain have struck a deal to ensure that directors and writers of feature films supported with Lottery funding through the BFI Film Fund will share with producers in the BFI’s ‘Locked Box’, a pool of recouped income up to 37%, which is held by the BFI and then can be used for developing and producing future films.

The recouped income that is held in the Locked Box will be split with directors, writers and producers each guaranteed a minimum share of 12.5%. 

While producers have been tapping into the pool since 2012, the UK writers and directors trade bodies had yet to strike a deal with Pact.

To date fifteen productions have drawn down money from the ‘Locked Box’, including »

Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis looks at this week’s big Blu-ray releases in the Us…

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

All roads have led to this point, as they say. The final film in both The Hobbit Trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien adaptations (at least for now), director Peter Jackson bids a fond farewell to Hobbits, Orcs and Wizards alike. Martin Freeman, Ian e, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily and Orlando Bloom return amongst the stellar cast, as Bilbo and friends face the final battle to save Middle-earth from the deadly Smaug.

New Projects: Benghazi, Jesse Owens, and ‘Hail, Caesar!’

19 March 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The terrorist attack on the American Embassy in Benghazi so consumed the media and Washington that it’s bound to make good fiction. There’s potential for an on-the-ground action thriller, Zero Dark Thirty style, there’s potential for a thorny, political drama surrounding the ensuing scandal, and one can even look at the conspiracy theorist angle. And with that, Hollywood is racing to produce not one, not two, but three competing movies all about Benghazi.

Deadline reported Tuesday about one currently with a script in hand, Zero Footprint. Written by the team behind Immortals, Zero Footprint views the deaths of the consulate members and CIA operatives killed through the eyes of an ex-Special Forces operator.

“This about why it happened and the siege of the embassy is the last part of the third act. This is about everything that led up to that attack,” said Alcon Entertainment’s co-ceo Andrew Kosove via Deadline. »

'The Huntsman' Adds Rob Brydon & Two Female Dwarves This Time

18 March 2015 8:02 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The cast of The Huntsman, the prequel to the 2012 fantasy Snow White and the Huntsman, already has a solid cast. Chris Hemsworth is reprising his title role, with Charlize Theron back as Ravenna and newcomers Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain coming aboard. And while all the dwarves from the first film aren't back, Nick Frost is at least back as Nion. Now some more dwarves are entering the mix as THR reports The Trip star Rob Brydon, Quartet actress Sheridan Smith and The Iron Lady supporting star Alexandra Roach have all taken roles as the gruff ensemble of dwarves this time. Yeah, there's some female dwarves! As of now, there aren't a lot of specifics on the story, but the prequel takes place before Snow White ever crosses paths with Ravenna and will follow the huntsman Eric as he is sent on a quest to find the stolen magic mirror, »

The Huntsman Spinoff Bags A Trio Of Dwarves

18 March 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal’s The Huntsman, a spinoff of 2012’s Snow White And The Huntsman, has secured a brand new roster of dwarves to accompany returning dwarf Nick Frost. Much like Disney’s Beauty And The Beast remake is crowded with Brits, it seems that Universal are chasing down a similar idea as Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith have all signed on to appear.

Their involvement on The Huntsman makes for interesting news in light of previous reports suggesting there would be a distinct lack of dwarves in the movie. Nevertheless, the trio are enlisted and ought to be in for a cracking time. Two of the newest cast, Brydon and Smith, will be reunited after they both starred in the BBC comedy series Gavin & Stacey. Brydon can be also seen in Disney’s live-action Cinderella which opened last weekend. Roach’s biggest role to date was in Margaret Thatcher »

Focus Features Snags Us Distribution For Real-Life Drama Suffragette

17 March 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A drama based on a pivotal moment in human history with a star-studded cast that includes the presence of Meryl Streep? That description sounds like a forthcoming award-winner, and in light of this latest batch of industry news, it very well might be.

Upcoming real-life drama Suffragette has now landed a North American distribution deal with Focus Features. Directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) from a screenplay by Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady) and produced by Oscar-nominated producer Alison Owen (Elizabeth) and Faye Ward, Suffragette is described as a moving drama set during the early 20th century. In an era when women were denied the right to vote, many chose to fight for their right to democracy by forming a brigade of activists.

Considering the suffragette movement is such an unequivocally important landmark in history, it’s surprising that it’s taken such a long time for a related film to hit our screens. »
