Watch: Trailer for 'Testament of Youth', Starring Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington

10 November 2014 8:05 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I love when an actor you had zero familiarity with gives a couple of terrific performances in succession and is put directly on your radar. Such was the case with Alicia Vikander, who between A Royal Affair and Anna Karenina really took me aback. She delivered a tremendous range just between those two roles to where I would see whatever she was involved with. After sitting through her in a small role in the terrible The Fifth Estate, she is finally put back in the lead in the World War I romantic drama Testament of Youth, which has a new trailer for you to watch below. She is playing opposite Jon Snow himself, Kit Harington, which has me a little less interested in this film. I love "Game of Thrones", but Harington has always been the weak link on the show. He grew a tiny bit as an actor this past season, »

Stockholm Festival: Rising Star Award Nominees

4 November 2014 7:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Stockholm Festival’s Rising Star Award nominees have tackled some of the most challenging film roles in Scandinavian cinema. Actors such as Alicia Vikander (“A Royal Affair”) and Nermina Lukac (“Eat Sleep Die”) have previously been presented the award at Stockholm Film Festival.

Here’s a brief look at the six nominees:

Saga Becker

Becker, born in 1998, made a sensational acting debut in Ester Martin Bergsmarks “Something Must Break,” a film that won the Tiger Award in Rotterdam earlier this year, pictured above. Becker was praised by critics for her interpretation of Sebastian/Ellie and his/her search of transgender identity.

David Fukamachi-Regnfors

After appearances in Mikael Marcimain’s “Call Girl” and Lisa Langseth’s “Hotel,” Fukamachi-Regnfors, born in 1984, plays the unreliable narrator Klas in the adaptation of Klas Ostergren’s “Gentlemen,” directed by Marcimain. Fukamachi-Regnfors was educated at the Academy of Music and Drama in Goteborg, and has »

The 'Ex Machina' Trailer Proves It's 2015's Coolest Sci-Fi Movie (Video)

30 October 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're a fan of the sci-fi genre, then 2014 has been something of a blessing. There has been a glut of top shelf sci-fi movies released this year, from the Tom Cruise intergalactic war movie "Edge of Tomorrow," to the thoughtful eeriness of "Under the Skin," to the creepy body-snatching of "Honeymoon," to the wonderful socio-political commentary of "Snowpiercer" to the balls-out fun of "Guardians of the Galaxy." All of these movies are magic. And they call came out this year. Thankfully, it looks like this winning streak is going to continue into 2015, with the first trailer for Alex Garland's "Ex Machina" already blowing our minds.

Garland, if you're unfamiliar with his work, was once a cerebral novelist whose cult book "The Beach" was adapted by Danny Boyle and Leonardo DiCaprio. That chance encounter with Boyle, though, started a second wind to his career, with Garland writing two terrific »

Scandinavians in London: New Films From Those 'Royal Affair' Lovers

24 October 2014 5:01 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

A couple more reports from London and Chicago festivals heading your way. Here's David on three new films starring either Alicia Vikander or Mads Mikkelsen, who formerly sizzled together in Denmark's recent Oscar nominee "A Royal Affair" - Editor

Alicia Vikander

That Testament of Youth was made the Centrepiece Gala at the festival seems, sight unseen, predictable: supported by the Mayor of London, the Gala slot is one of the few that really demonstrates the festival's support of homegrown cinema, and the story told here is as British as you can get. 2014 marks the centenary of World War I, and with it comes this adaptation of Vera Brittain's iconic memoir. James Kent's film keeps his focus to the period of the war itself, beginning at its end; Vera (Alicia Vikander) looks oddly distraught amidst the celebrating crowds packing London's streets. Testament of Youth is a compassionate reminder of »

‘The Absent One’ Breaks Danish Records; Sequel On The Case For Local Pics (Video)

7 October 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The sequel to last year’s highest grossing local film has just set new records at the Danish box office. And that’s welcome news in an uncharacteristically soft year for homegrown titles thus far. The Absent One, the second installment in director Mikkel Norgaard’s adaptations of Jussi Adler-Olsen’s Department Q series of novels, scored the best opening week ever for a local title (including previews) with 194,545 admissions after releasing October 2. Excluding previews, The Absent One (see trailer below) sold 131,480K tickets at the weekend, giving it the 3rd best opening frame ever for a Danish film. The biggest local movie at this point is comedy Klassefesten 2 – Begravelsen with about $9M in box office, but it is one of only two Danish movies in the Top 10. Last year, local pics sold 4M tickets with five sharing the Top 10 with Hollywood by the end. So far this year, Danish »

29 August 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of Danish crime thriller The Keeper of Lost Causes, we had the pleasure of speaking to the film’s leading star, Nikolaj Lie Kaas. He discussed with us his own appreciation for the aforementioned genre, and how pleased he is to currently be part of a flourishing, Danish film industry. He also tells us why he loves his craft, and about his forthcoming endeavour, the star-studded drama Child 44.

Of course The Keeper of Lost Causes is based on a Jussi Adler-Olsen novel – was it one you were familiar with before signing up to the project?

No I hadn’t read anything by him before this, I came in to this by accident. But as I became connected to the project I read his books. Though there’s nothing wrong having your own image of how to portray someone, and when I saw the script there »

Exclusive: Paris-based sales agent to launch new film loosely inspired by “world’s worst soprano”, Florence Foster Jenkins.

Memento Films International will launch French Xavier Giannoli’s upcoming Marguerite, starring Catherine Frot as an aspiring opera singer with a terrible voice, at the Toronto International Film Festival (Sept 4-14).

The French-language, period drama - set against the backdrop of 1920s Paris - revolves around Marguerite Dumont, a wealthy chatelaine devoted to music, who loves to sing to her guests.

None of her friends or hangers-on dare tell Marguerite she has a dreadful voice and when a journalist mischievously gives one of her private recitals a rave review she decides to give her first public concert.

Ignoring her husband’s protests, she enlists the help of a former diva and starts training for the big night.

The tale is loosely inspired by American Florence Foster Jenkins, a real opera singer known as the “diva of din” who was »

Ewan McGregor is a jailbird in crime thriller Son of a Gun

27 August 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

We haven’t seen Ewan McGregor in jail since he spent time locked up with Jim Carrey in I Love You Phillip Morris back in 2009.  Now he’s playing a jailed criminal in the crime thriller Son of a Gun and we have to admit, the tough-guy jailbird role suits him.

McGregor stars as Brendan, Australia’s notorious criminal who while in the slammer, takes the young Jr (Brenton Thwaites) under his wing.  In return for his protection on the inside, Jr helps to stage a prison break, allowing Brendan and his crew to escape. For his loyalty, the petty criminal Jr is invited into a gold heist where he soon realizes he is in over his head in a dangerous game of cat and mouse. 

Son of a Gun is written and directed by Julius Avery who took home a Cannes Jury prize in 2008 for his short filmJerrycan.  The »

"Where is the gold?!" eOne out of Australia has debuted the first trailer for Son of a Gun (fun title, no?) a crime thriller starring Ewan McGregor and Brenton Thwaites (from The Giver) as partners in crime. The story involves McGregor taking Thwaites under his wing while he's in prison at age 19, recruiting him for a job upon release which eventually leads to him earning a spot on the heist crew. Then it goes all out Italian Job (remake, not the original). There's lots of heisting, prison violence, beards, accents, guns, and a woman, of course - Alicia Vikander, a Swedish actress you may recognize from Anna Karenina or A Royal Affair. This looks solid, and entertaining, I'm curious to check it out when it makes its way up here. Enjoy.
