Brawl In Cell Block 99 Review [Fantastic Fest 2017]

25 September 2017 3:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Vince Vaughn will always be thought of as a dry-witted comedian, but writer/director S. Craig Zahler’s ultra-violent Brawl In Cell Block 99 looks to diversify opinions. Instead of crashing weddings, Vaughn is pulverizing skulls. Instead of running his mouth about how “money” people are, he’s quiet, frosty and speaking through dangerous actions. Even with Hacksaw Ridge and True Detective under his belt, this is a new, beastly look for the longtime funnyman, and what a break in character it is. Thoughts about the movie aside, this might be my favorite representation of Vaughn’s talents and not a single joke is needed. Welcome to the game, Vince “I Snap Limbs” Vaughn.

In Zahler’s story, Vaughn stars as Bradley Thomas (not “Brad,” just “Bradley”). We meet him as an honest mechanic, but within minutes, Bradley finds himself laid off on the same day his wife Lauren (Jennifer Carpenter »

Tom Hardy Becomes Venom In Cool New Fan Art

23 September 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Barring the back-and-forth surrounding the film’s relation to the McU – or lack thereof – Venom has piqued the curiosity of comic book fans the world over thanks to Sony and Ruben Fleischer’s desire to engineer a dark and potentially R-rated Spider-Man spinoff. There’s someone else though who’s also responsible for much of the intrigue surrounding the pic, and that’d be Dunkirk star Tom Hardy.

In fact, he’s one of the few shining lights in what’s otherwise become a controversial project, one that many fans feel is simply unnecessary. With Hardy on board, however, most people are at least willing to give it a chance and today, some new art has surfaced that paints a pretty interesting picture of how the actor could look as the titular character. It may not be an accurate representation of how he actually appears in the film, of course, »

‘Dunkirk’ Cast: Where You’ve Seen Christopher Nolan’s Ensemble Before

19 July 2017 11:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dunkirk” is finally upon us after months of anticipation, and it’s clear the long wait has been worth it. IndieWire has named the WWII epic the best movie Christopher Nolan has ever made and a certain Oscar contender in the months ahead. As audiences nationwide get to discover why the film is such a monumental war epic, questions as to who exactly is in the cast are bound to come up.

Unlike Nolan’s recent star-driven efforts like “Inception” and “Interstellar,” “Dunkirk” features an eclectic mix of relative newcomers, Oscar winners and the director’s reliable collaborators. Getting a blend of known and unknown talent was crucial for Nolan, as including too many stars would’ve distracted from the urgent nature of the story. In following mostly fresh faces, Nolan is »

Sony-Backed Venom Spinoff Reportedly Eyeing September Start Across New York And Atlanta

14 June 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Eddie Brock, look away now; the alien symbiote is almost ready to seize control of its latest host.

Omega Underground is reporting that the Sony-backed Venom spinoff is now poised to enter production across Atlanta and New York City on September 1st, when Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer will be calling the shots from behind the lens. We know that Fury Road star Tom Hardy has signed on to play Brock/Venom in a film that will launch Sony’s own Marvel Universe that is ostensibly independent from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It’s a wildly ambitious strategy, particularly when you consider how many fans felt Venom’s last screen appearance (see: the overstuffed and overblown Spider-Man 3) left much to be desired. Other plans include movies featuring such iconic characters as Silver Sable and Black Cat, and despite rumors to the contrary, it’s understood that Tom Holland’s friendly »

Here’s What Tom Hardy Could Look Like As Venom

20 May 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, that didn’t take long. It hasn’t even been 24 hours since it was announced that Tom Hardy will be playing Venom for Sony and already, fan artist extraordinaire Boss Logic has gone ahead and done his thing, mocking up a design of what The Dark Knight Rises star might look like in the role. Seen at the bottom of the page, it’s a striking image of the actor and one that has us fully convinced that Hardy is the right man for the job.

Not that we really needed anymore convincing, mind you. After all, we’re talking about Tom Hardy here, one of the most talented actors of our generation. No matter the film, he’s always compelling to watch and brings a level of intensity to his roles that not many can match. It’s that intensity, combined with his ability to go completely unhinged »

‘A Prayer Before Dawn’ Is a Ferocious Boxing Movie That Fights Dirty — Cannes 2017 Review

20 May 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One giant bulging vein of a movie, “A Prayer Before Dawn” is only nominally about boxing. It’s also only nominally about its main character, and he’s in nearly every shot. Based on the eponymous 2014 memoir by drug addict-turned-convict-turned-champion boxer Billy Moore, the film is less interested in the how’s and why’s of the real figure’s story than it is in orchestrating one of the most unrelentingly intense symphonies of testosterone and rage ever put onscreen.

Jean-Stephane Sauvaire’s film is not so much the story of a fighter as it is a story that wants to fight you.

Idris Elba Begins Production on Directorial Debut ‘Yardie’

16 May 2017 2:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Idris Elba has started production on his directorial debut “Yardie,” which will shoot on location in London and Jamaica for seven weeks.

Studiocanal released a first image Tuesday (pictured) from the set of the film, which sees Elba directing star Aml Ameen (“Maze Runner”) as a young Jamaican named “D” who arrives in London in the early 1980s and unexpectedly discovers the man who assassinated his revered brother in Jamaica a decade earlier.

Stream Johnny Jewel’s ‘Windswept’ and Try to Figure Out Which Songs Are on the ‘Twin Peaks’ Soundtrack

13 May 2017 2:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Johnny Jewel’s new album “Windswept” is now available to stream on Spotify, and among its 14 tracks are selections from the new season of “Twin Peaks.” We don’t actually know which songs actually feature in the long-awaited revival, of course — that would go against David Lynch’s well-earned philosophy of not telling anyone anything about it — but searching for meaning among hidden clues is nothing if not apropos of Lynch in general and “Twin Peaks” in particular.

Jewel previously contributed to the soundtracks to “Bronson,” “Drive” and “Lost River,” among others. Listen below and see if you can suss out any hints, whether from the music itself or even the titles: “Television Show” might be a little on the nose, but “Slow Dreams,” “Between Worlds” and “Missing Pages” all sound about right. »

Christian Bale in Talks to Play Dick Cheney for Adam McKay

6 April 2017 9:04 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Amy Adams and Steve Carrell also in negotiations.

After a string of blockbuster comedies starring Will Ferrell — Anchorman, The Other Guys, Step Brothers — writer-director Adam McKay side-stepped a little a couple years back with The Big Short, an ensemble flick about the real-life housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s. The film earned the best reviews of McKay’s well-reviewed career, and wound up with five Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, and one win for McKay’s screenplay (with Charles Randolph).

It shouldn’t be surprising then that for his big screen follow-up, McKay would return to the ripped-from-the-headlines genre, this time tackling a biopic of one of the most shadowy and misunderstood figures of this century to-date: Former Vice President Dick Cheney. And the cast he’s building? Start polishing the Oscars.

According to Variety’s sources Bale is on board to play Cheney, while Amy Adams is in talks to play his »

Ruth Wilson webchat – your questions answered on The Affair, Idris Elba and Marmite

The Olivier-nominated actor joined us live from the National Theatre to talk about crying on cue, why American TV takes so many risks and what she has in common with Hedda Gabler

2.07pm GMT

Thanks for reading! And watching. Great answering all your questions - au revoir!

2.05pm GMT

helizsct asks:

Do you find parallels between the characters you play – ie Stella and Hedda? Both are destructive in their own way. Do you ever draw on your experiences playing other characters with whom you can see similarities?

Sometimes there are similarities, but I've never put those two together. I've seen moments of Alice in Hedda, and moments of Alison in Hedda - in their self loathing. Alice is a psychopath, and is slightly different, she enjoys it and doesn't have a conscience; Alison and Hedda have a deep sense of self-loathing, with Hedda it's quite far down and she doesn't recognise it. »

My Father Die Review

22 January 2017 12:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

My Father Die is an angry little debut for Sean Brosnan, and thankfully for papa Pierce Brosnan, not with biographical intent. It’s true that Brosnan keeps revenge in the family, but only by way of fictional bayou country folks. Pierce is safe from Sean’s bullet-ridden bite of familial revenge, unlike some characters who find themselves caught between not-so-friendly fire and the struggles of living up to (or denouncing) parental pedestals. It’s pulpy, fur-wearing, country fried fury, following a darker path that’s guided by stellar direction from the man with the golden camera. It’s not perfect, but stylish and provocative enough to erase any notion that “first-timer” is synonymous with “amateur.”

Joe Anderson stars as present-day Asher, who we first meet as a young boy (played by Gabe White). Currently, he’s a deaf adult who takes care of his mother, but in the opening flashback, »

How to Identify the Four 'Peak Tom Hardy' Types

17 January 2017 9:46 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company. »

Nicolas Winding Refn’s Yakuza Action Feature ‘The Avenging Silence’ Gets Extensive Synopsis

11 January 2017 1:34 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With The Neon Demon now (almost completely) exorcised from Danish auteur Nicolas Winding Refn‘s system, he is already deep into preparing his next project. On the docket for the director is The Avenging Silence, which will apparently sate Refn’s desire to make a “big extravagant action film.” Refn also said over the summer it is loosely inspired by “Dr. No,” Ian Fleming‘s classic Bond novel, as well as William Burrough‘s “Nova Express.” An extended synopsis has now been released for the feature, which hopefully will make its way to screens by 2018.

While he has dipped into action in sections of DriveBronson and The Pusher Trilogy, The Avenging Silence sounds like a big step for Refn into pure spy/action genre fare. However, fans of Refn’s stylistic choices should rest assured as he has already stated his protagonist won’t say much. This time, that »

Taboo Season 1 Review

8 January 2017 11:01 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast

The brainchild of frequent collaborators Steven Knight and Tom Hardy, Taboo might just be the fraternal twin of the pair’s Peaky Blinders, which was just renewed for a fourth and fifth season. With parental guidance from Chips Hardy, Tom’s father, who’s also credited as a series creator, and the big name draw of executive producer Ridley Scott, one mustn’t strain themselves when searching for motivation to tune in for the premiere this coming Tuesday.

The show is set in 1814 London, in the thick of the War of 1812 between Great Britain/Canada and the “15 United States of America.” The East India Trading Company, whose tyrannical depiction in the series ignited a bit of controversy prior to the show’s release, are attempting to monopolize trading routes on both coasts of America. Standing in their way is Nootka Sound, an »

Taboo Series 1 Episode 1 Review

8 January 2017 3:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sam Narr reviews the first episode of Taboo

After various teasers and building anticipation, the first episode of Taboo aired last night on BBC one. The huge draw to the period drama will no doubt be Tom Hardy, in what feels like a homecoming from Hollywood.

Taboo, set in 1814, follows the return of James Keziah Delaney (Hardy) to London’s lurid, gluttonous streets in wake of his Father’s death. Mystery surrounds his return as he has been assumed dead for a decade.

The introduction to the eight-part series gives an offering into the complexities of James’s return and character. The enemies from the offset the East India Company, the imperialistic trades and commodities arm that had free reign to voyage the world. James’s Father had purchased land in America which has not only become incredibly expensive, but may be a deciding factor in the war between the UK and Us. »

Cool Videos: Tom Hardy reads a bedtime story

3 January 2017 7:15 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Tom Hardy is the one of the most intense, often horrifying, actors working today. He’s known for playing rogues, rascals, swindlers and straight-up nutbags in movies like Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant and Bronson.  But did you know he is shockingly good at reading delightful bedtime stories? Nor did I, which is why I was appropriately shocked to watch him read a child’s bedtime... Read More »
