Ben Schnetzer and Faye Marsay interview: Pride

10 September 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Two of the stars of Pride chat to us about the film, Imelda Staunton, and asking Andrew Scott for a wee...

There's a big cast at work in Matthew Warchus' Pride, which finally makes its way into cinemas at the end of this week. Two of the younger stars of the film are Ben Schnetzer and Faye Marsay. Both are terrific in the movie, and both were full of beans when we sat down with them for a chat about it, on the eve of the film's premiere.

After chatting, for reasons we don't recall, about the town of Bury ("I know where I'm going this weekend", grinned New Yorker Schnetzer. "Bury's world famous market!"), we settled down for a natter about the film itself...

Let's start with the predictable question, then. Can you talk about how it came to you both?

FM: I auditioned for it in July of last year. »

The top 25 greatest Jason Statham films

14 August 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

How do you rank perfection? Duncan has a go, as he lists the top 25 Jason Statham films...

For regular Den Of Geek readers, it will come as little surprise to see this list come round. We've chosen our favourite Statham films before, but such is the productivity of the great man, it was decided that a mere top ten was no longer large enough to contain his ever growing body of work. Last time I mentioned updating this piece to the man himself back in 2012 due to his insane workload, he cracked up and responded, “My productivity is overwhelming! 'Have a fucking day off!'”

Since this list has now expanded to encompass 25 of his movies, it seemed only right to include multiple sequels, with his big trio of action franchises all spawning some thoroughly entertaining fare worthy of mention, though I’ve tried to exclude the personal bias that »

Impressions of Evil Dead: The Musical

16 July 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Doris the Deadite greets us atop the stairs leading to Planet Hollywood’s V3 Theater in Las Vegas. Wearing a blood-splotched white dress with a matching white hat nestled on her curly blonde hair, Doris smiles through the peeling gray skin of her face. Teeth bared, eyes darting from sunken sockets, Doris cackles and beckons us closer for a photo. Welcome to the immersive atmosphere of Evil Dead The Musical Ultimate 4D Experience.

A tasty slice of horror heaven from director/producer Sirc Michaels that’s based on Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy, as well as the book and lyrics of George Reinblatt, this Vegas production is packed with nods to its beloved source material, but also boasts buckets of blood-drenched originality.

After our photo is snapped with Doris, we hang out in the bar area for a bit before another Deadite calls us into the theater. As we walk down a short hallway, »

On Yon Bloomy Spray: Oyelowo Dominates Lester’s One Set Drama

Director Elliott Lester, best known for his 2011 Jason Statham offering, Blitz, adapts firstime screenwriter Frederick Mensch’s character study Nightingale for the big screen, to surprisingly compelling effect. Cinched into the cozy house of its main character, we witness first hand the unraveling of a mind after a dastard deed. As we’re never really allowed to travel outside of these confines, it sometimes feels like the filmed version of a play. Slight visual texturing aside, everything takes a backseat to a masterful performance from David Oyelowo, the driving force of every single minute of film, a space never shared with any other physical actor. It’s a meaty, multifaceted role, something nearly extinct in modern climes where multiple intersections of storylines stomp all over any given narrative.

Peter Snowden (Oyelowo) is an incredibly lonely and persistently overwrought person. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2011

12 March 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 13 Mar 2014 - 05:44

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2011, and a great year for lesser-seen gems...

Even a cursory glance at the top 10 grossing films of 2011 reveals something strange: nine of the entries are sequels. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 brought the fantasy franchise to a close with a staggering $1.3bn haul. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon wasn't too far behind with just over $1.1bn. On Stranger Tides continued the Pirates Of The Caribbean series' wave of success, despite mixed reviews.

Elsewhere in the top 10, you'll find another Twilight, a fourth Mission: Impossible, a second Kung Fu Panda, a fifth Fast, another Hangover, and further Cars. Standing alone on the list is The Smurfs, the adaptation of Peyo's Belgian comic strip. In fact, 2011 saw the release of no fewer than 28 sequels - the most we've yet seen in any given year. »
