The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

This Sunday, 26th December (that would be Boxing Day) sees the release of Peter Weir’s new movie, The Way Back which has an all-star cast which includes Colin Farrell, Mark Strong, Saoirse Ronan, Jim Sturgess, Yordan Bikov and Dejan Angelov.

Our friend, James Kleinmann got to catch up with both Colin Farrell and Jim Sturgess to talk about the new movie, both of which we have videos for. The Jim Sturgess interview went up a couple of days ago and you can check it out here, today we have the video with Colin Farrell. We caught up with him a few weeks ago to talk to him about London Boulevard and today he talks about working with Peter Weir, adding his tatoos and how each one tells a story.

We highly recommend you go and see The Way Back when it’s released on Boxing Day.

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Two

19 December 2010 2:05 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »

The Making of Filmography 2010 – An Interview with Gen Ip

15 December 2010 1:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

We post a ton of videos here at /Film, but I have to say I was completely blown away by Filmography 2010 [1], which showed us clips from 270 films set to some great music, all in the span of 6 minutes. The breadth that video editor Gen Ip was able to achieve was astounding. Horror films, trashy b-movies, big-budget blockbusters, critically acclaimed indie films -- all of them got at least a brief moment to shine in the video montage. In the end, the message was inescapable: even though 2010 might have given us a ton of crappy movies, all cinema has an undeniable beauty, even more so when it's shown in 3-second chunks. I was so impressed that I reached out to Gen to see if she would agree to an e-mail interview to discuss how she went about putting such a massive project together. Happily, she did. You can find our chat after the jump, »

9 December 2010 3:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Among the screenplays with less than 6 votes in 2008 we have titles such as Sherlock Holmes, The Debt, Julia Leigh's Sleeping Beauty, William Monahan's London Boulevard and easily my favorite of the bunch is Bert Royal's Easy A.

Megamind is no match for Harry Potter

8 December 2010 8:42 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 3rd - Sunday 5th December 2010.

Despite stiff competition from DreamWorks Animation’s latest 3D CG comedy Megamind, box office bohemoth Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 holds on to top spot for the third consecutive weekend here in the UK. Deathly Hallows adds another £3.7m to push its total to £39.1m (a series high over seventeen days), leaving Megamind to settle for second with a £2.8m opening including £900k of previews.

Tony Scott’s latest actioner Unstoppable falls one place to third, with Todd Phillips’ road-movie comedy Due Date holding onto fourth and creeping ever closer to the £10m mark in its fifth weekend. Meanwhile Gareth Edwards' low budget sci-fi romance Monsters enjoys a decent fifth-placed debut, pulling in £348k from just 164 screens.

George Clooney thriller The American leads the bottom half of the chart »

Megamind won't, Monsters can't, Secretariat keels over: it's Harry again

7 December 2010 3:37 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

DreamWorks' flick is the top new entry but doesn't exactly fly and Gareth Edwards' Mexico-set indie can't fulfil its own hype

The faltering start

Opening on 470 screens, more than twice as wide as any other new entry, Megamind was always going to be the weekend's top new entry. But takings of £2.83m, including £903,000 in previews, hardly represents a flying start for the latest effort from DreamWorks Animation.

Back in April, DreamWorks' How To Train Your Dragon began its run with £4.85m including previews of £2.12m, but at the time this was seen as a relatively weak start due to the challenge of competing for 3D screens with fellow new release Clash of the Titans. Dragon ended up with £17.34m. Monsters Vs Aliens debuted a year earlier with £4.35m including previews of £1.72m, on its way to a cume of £21.35m.

One challenge for Megamind is its arrival on screens »

'Harry Potter' spends third week at UK No. 1

7 December 2010 1:25 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 has held on to its place at the top of the UK box office. The film, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, pulled in £3.7 million on its third weekend on release to hold off competition from 3D animation Megamind and retain first place. Last week's runner-up Unstoppable falls to number three, comedy Due Date charts at number four and Gareth Edwards' low-budget sci-fi Monsters bows at number five. Elsewhere in the top ten, London Boulevard is the biggest faller as it slips down four spots to number seven. New release The (more) »

Close up: Guardian film news, reviews and much, much more

2 December 2010 9:06 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

That was the week in which we waved goodbye to Leslie Nielsen, Irvin Kerchner and Mario Monicelli and said hello to the British Film institute taking over the duties of the UK Film Council

The big story

Monday at 10am and Ed Vaizey made the announcement many had been expecting: the BFI is to take over the bulk of the funding duties of the now-defunct UK Film Council. The reaction from film agencies (and the BFI's Greg Dyke) was pretty warm, but on the blog, Adam Dawtrey questioned the logistics and the politics behind the move, Andrew Pulver sighed at the merry-go-round of lottery funding, Dan Sabbagh suggested the ring-fencing of cash for cinema might not be wholly fair, and James Russell questioned whether the BFI would be equipped to cope with the difficult decisions that lie ahead.

Harry Potter stops Unstoppable in its tracks as it holds onto the UK box office crown

1 December 2010 6:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 26th - Sunday 28th November 2010.

The UK box office is once again dominated by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 as it easily retains its grip of the chart in first place with £8.3m. Having banked in excess of £33m in just over a week, The Deathly Hallows has overtaken Shrek Forever After to become the fourth highest grossing film of 2010 and could put up a strong challenge against Toy Story 3 for top spot by the time it finishes its run.

Unlike Harry Potter, the rest of the films in the top ten weren't so safe with five new releases debuting in the chart this week. Pick of the bunch is the Tony Scott / Denzel Washington action thriller Unstoppable, which leads the way in second place with £1.7m, while crime drama London Boulevard pulls in »

The Way Back Gets Another Poster

If you’ve not seen either of the trailers for Peter Weir’s ‘The Way Back’ yet, click here before you do anything else because the film looks amazing. We recently got to interview Colin Farrell for his new movie, London Boulevard and also stars in The Way Back and he spoke very highly of Weir and how incredible he is.

As well as Farrell, the way back stars Mark Strong, Saoirse Ronan, Jim Sturgess, Yordan Bikov and Dejan Angelov.

Synopsis: Chronicles the escape of a small group of multi-national prisoners from a Siberian gulag in 1940 and their epic life affirming journey over thousands of miles across five hostile countries.

This new poster comes courtesy of Impa which you can see below and click to enlarge. It’s set for release in the UK 26th December and after watching both the trailers, I can’t wait to see it!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows takes off as Unstoppable trundles on

30 November 2010 7:14 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Tony Scott's runaway train thriller set a solid pace but the broomstick-wielding wizard cleaned up on his penultimate outing

The winner

A fistful of major new releases targeting adult audiences predictably failed to dislodge Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 from the top spot in its second week of release. The Potter picture's second-weekend takings of £8.34m are more than all the rest of the films in the market added together.

Deathly Hallows's 10-day turnover of £33.26m is the biggest ever for a Potter movie at this stage of release. In July 2009 Half-Blood Prince stood at £33.07m after its second weekend – but thanks to a preview strategy giving two extra days of play at opening that figure represented a 12-day gross. The Order of the Phoenix, from July 2007, grossed £30.06m after two weekends – an 11-day figure. Like Deathly Hallows, November 2005's Goblet of Fire opened without the benefit of previews, »

'Harry Potter' holds firm at UK box office

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 has topped the UK box office for a second consecutive weekend. Despite five significant new releases, the first instalment in the wizard saga's finale pulls in £8.3 million to easily see off the competition. Deathly Hallows has now grossed more than £33 million in the UK, putting it in fifth spot ahead of Shrek Forever After in the top grossing films of 2010. Denzel Washington action movie Unstoppable trails behind Potter in second place with £1.7 million this week, while Colin Farrell's London Boulevard charts at number three.

This week's new films

26 November 2010 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Unstoppable (12A)

(Tony Scott, 2010, Us) Denzel Washington, Chris Pine, Rosario Dawson, Ethan Suplee, Kevin Dunn. 98 mins

This literally one-track action thriller is the perfect fit for Scott, Hollywood's master of manliness and heavy machinery. It's based on a true story that just happens to have a plot like a disaster movie: a massive, unmanned train carrying hazardous chemicals is hurtling towards populated areas; might the prickly railroad veteran and his rookie partner just be able to stop it? Everyone knows where it's going but it's got enough momentum to smash through to the finish, and the purity of the premise is a good fit with Scott's visual excess.

The American (15)

(Anton Corbijn, 2010, Us) George Clooney, Violante Placido, Paolo Bonacelli. 105 mins

Corbijn follows up Control with a sparse, existential hitman thriller in the Le Samourai/Day Of The Jackal mould, with Clooney in picturesque Italy. Apart from the classy visuals, it »

Farrell 'intrigued by London Boulevard role'

26 November 2010 7:32 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Colin Farrell has said that he was drawn to the conflicted loyalties of his London Boulevard character Mitchell. In an interview with The AP, the actor explained that the reluctant gangster Mitchell is seemingly being chased by his troubled past. "He has high ideals and he has a depth of experience that comes between him and those ideals. The life that he left behind, he didn't really leave behind," he remarked. "He walked away from it, but it's followed him and haunts him through (more) »

In the week in which Harry Potter broke five UK box office records, we bring you all the stats, and any other film-related news we can, as relief from wall-to-wall wizardry

The big story

The trouble with Harry is that he's just everywhere. The seventh instalment in the boy wizard's adventures, the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, finally hit cinemas last Friday. By Monday it was clear writers the world over were going to have to dust off that "audiences have fallen under his spell" cliche yet again. So, let's keep this brief: it broke five records this side of the pond, another couple in the States. For more details, try Charles Gant's UK box office analysis and Jeremy Kay's Hollywood report. And if you want to discuss whether or not it revives the sequel as a format, check out David Cox's blog. Last Friday, too, James Russell wrote a »
