Review: The Double

5 April 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is the Pure Movies review of The Double, directed by Richard Ayoade, and starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Chris O'Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Gemma Chan, Paddy Considine, Noah Taylor, Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige. Fans of British TV comedy will already be familiar with Richard Ayoade, having starred in The It Crowd, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace and, more recently, Ben Stiller/Vince Vaughn comedy The Watch. With The Double he continues his departure from TV land and builds on his success as a director following on from his superb 2011 debut Submarine. The story follows Simon (Jesse Eisenberg), a clerical worker who lives a life unnoticed until the new guy at work James (also Jesse Eisenberg) challenges him to pursue what he wants out of life - in this case, love interest Hannah (played by Mia Wasikowska). »

Tom Hardy and Olivia Colman Join the Musical 'London Road'

4 April 2014 6:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tom Hardy and Olivia Colman have signed on to star in the upcoming musical London Road for director Rufus Norris (Broken).

The project is an adaptation of a stage play that centers around the British community of Ipswich which was devastated when a serial killer murdered five women. Tom Hardy will have a small role as Mark, a cab driver who has just one scene where he sings about a troubling passion he had as a teenager. The Daily Mail reports that the actor is a fan of the play and pursued Rufus Norris for a chance to join the production.

Olivia Colman is playing Julie, the organizer of Ipswich's Neighborhood Watch, who comes up with the idea for London Road in Bloom, hanging baskets full of flowers all throughout the area as she sings away to provide a distraction from the darkness that has taken over the town. Linzi Hateley »

Richard Ayoade: 'Making films is exhilarating – and terrifying'

23 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Richard Ayoade shot to fame as Moss in The It Crowd but it was Submarine, his debut behind the camera, that won him critical acclaim. As his new film, The Double, is released, he talks about pride, performing and giving up his pop dreams

The premise of Fyodor Dostoevsky's 1846 novella The Double is simple but ingenious: a man lives an entirely unremarkable existence until one day his exact doppelganger shows up. This incongruous situation fast becomes insufferable for two reasons: first, the new guy is slick where he is stammering, popular where he's forgettable, Day-Glo to his beige; and, second, because no one else notices any likeness at all between the pair of them.

The Double, it's said, is meant as an allegory: the straight man is Dostoevsky in real life, shy and often awkward; the arriviste is the author 2.0, the person he sometimes wished he was, who is quick-witted and irresistible to women. »

We love you, now change: What other actors are due for a McConaissance?

6 March 2014 2:50 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Matthew McConaughey’s journey from rom-com stud muffin to Oscar-winning actor is officially complete. Six years ago, he starred in Fool’s Gold and Surfer, Dude. At Sunday night’s Oscars, he took home the Best Actor prize for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club, the culmination of a string of career-rehabilitating roles that included Magic Mike and Mud. McConaughey was always a popular star, and his frivolous, formulaic romantic comedies likely served as golden handcuffs for several years of his career that left him in a creative rut. Give him credit for recognizing that and then actually doing something about it. »

The Double Pits Jesse Eisenberg Against Himself In This Crazy New Trailer

28 February 2014 5:57 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With the exception of Akiva Schaffer.s drab 2012 comedy The Watch, I have been a fan of every single thing that actor/writer/director Richard Ayoade has been a part of, and his upcoming comedic thriller The Double, which debuted a new theatrical trailer, could be his most accomplished work yet. Sure, it probably can't top the hilarious insanity of Garth Marenghi.s Darkplace, but to try would be a waste. The Double is based on the 1846 novella from Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon James, just the kind of character you.ve come to expect from an Eisenberg role: withdrawn, shy and soft-spoken. He has a crush on a girl named Hannah, played by Mia Wasikowska, and his job as some kind of government worker is as mundane as the clothes he wears. (His boss is played with gleeful authority by Wallace Shawn.) But the humdrum is »

"Lego Movie" Sequel To Hit May 2017

21 February 2014 8:54 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has announced a May 26th 2017 release date for "The Lego Movie 2", meaning the film will hit a little over three years after the first.

Currently in cinemas, the first 'Lego' film has been a major domestic hit and has done very well in the global territories it has opened worldwide in so far.

Jared Stern ("The Internship," "The Watch") and Michelle Morgan ("Nancy Drew") are penning the screenplay, while Roy Lee and Dan Lin are producing. No word as yet if directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will return to the helm.

There's still no word on whether Warners will continue forward with a stand-alone animated "Lego Ninjago" adventure.

In the wake of The Lego Movie's massive box office success, Warner Bros. has issued a May 26, 2017 release date for The Lego Movie 2. The Lego Movie has earned just over $200 million worldwide, after just two weeks in theaters. As of now, The Lego Movie 2 doesn't have any direct competition, although the Untitled Marvel Project 2017 will hit theaters a few weeks earlier on May 5, 2017.

We reported earlier this month that Jared Stern (The Internship, The Watch) has been hired to write the screenplay for this sequel with another writer, who has now been identified as Michelle Morgan (Nancy Drew). Roy Lee and Dan Lin are producing, although it isn't clear which cast members are coming back for this follow-up. It also isn't known yet whether or not The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be back at the helm.

Enjoy This First Teaser and Poster for Jesse Eisenberg’s The Double

11 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

For me the most wonderfully puzzling thing about watching this very noir, very artsy trailer for The Double (an adaptation of a Fyodor Dostoyevsky novella) was then reading that it was a comedy about a man’s descent into madness. Of course with director, screen writer and funny man Richard Ayoade (actor in The It Crowd, The Watch) behind the scenes it will most definitely be brilliant. Here’s the poster, followed by the teaser trailer.

Teaser: The Double

The Double directed by Richard Ayoade and starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn and Chris O’Dowd is slated to hit theaters in a limited release May 9th, 2014. »

Warner Bros. Hires The Internship Writer to Pen The Lego Movie Sequel

5 February 2014 4:15 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Despite the fact that it isn’t even out yet, Warner Bros. are clearly confident that The Lego Movie will be a big success for them as they’ve hired Jared Stern to write a sequel. He’s best known for penning The Internship, The Watch, and Mr. Popper’s Penguins. However, before you start wondering why the studio would choose a writer with such a varied résumé, Stern is credited with adding story material to the likes of Bolt and Wreck-it Ralph. Also working on the script is Girl Most Likely’s Michelle Morgan.

Tracking currently indicates that The Lego Movie will open with upwards of $40 million in the Us this weekend, easily taking the top spot and holding off competition from The Monuments Men and Vampire AcademyPhil Lord and Christopher Miller wrote the first movie, and Stern’s involvement stems from the fact that he is part »

‘The Lego Movie’ Sequel Has A Writer

3 February 2014 9:57 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

One of the biggest surprises of last year was being blown away by the hysterical The Lego Movie trailers. It’s released in the Us this coming Friday and on Valentine’s Day in the UK, but there is obviously a lot of confidence around the project as Warner Bros. have already hired a writer for the sequel. Jared Stern, with credits including The Watch, The Internship, and Mr. Popper’S Penguins is now on board for the building block-buster follow-up. Stern has also added story elements to the likes of Wreck-it Ralph, Bolt, and The Princess And The Frog, so he is obviously no stranger to animated flicks.

I really did love The Watch, despite many negative reviews and a small take at the box-office, but with The Lego Movie’s Phil Lord and Christopher Miller responsible for the wonderful Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and being very »

The Lego Movie 2 Gets Wreck-It-Ralph Writer Jared Stern

3 February 2014 10:55 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With The Lego Movie hitting theaters in just four short days, Warner Bros. is already moving forward with a sequel, hiring Jared Stern to work on the screenplay with another unidentified writer.

The Lego Movie is tracking very well, with some box office analysts predicting it may gross more than $40 million in its opening weekend, and that it will easily beat other new releases such as The Monuments Men and Vampire Academy. No voice cast members from The Lego Movie have been confirmed to return, and it isn't known if directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be back to direct.

Jared Stern, whose other writing credits include Wreck-It Ralph, The Internship, The Watch, Mr. Popper's Penguins and The Princess and the Frog, is part of a Warner Bros. consortium of writers and directors brought together to help develop animated movies.

The Vaughn identity: Vince needs to return to his roots

9 January 2014 7:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Following a string of flops, Vaughn should look to Bill Murray and Will Ferrell for a lesson in reviving a career

One of the favourite stars in the Us appears to be in descent. Vince Vaughn, once a box-office record breaker, with a string of hits topped in 2005 by Wedding Crashers, has underperformed as a lead in his last few movies. The Dilemma and The Watch both disappointed financially, (just about making their money back with around $70m (£42.5m) and $68m, respectively, worldwide. Meanwhile, last year's much-hyped reunion with Owen Wilson, The Internship, made less than half of their Wedding Crashers haul ($93.5m worldwide). These films were also unpopular with critics: in a one-star review of The Internship, Peter Bradshaw found the comedy "creepy and undead … a dreary experience".

Vaughn's latest film, Delivery Man (out in the UK on 10 January), seems to be following the trend. It opened at No 4 in the Us, »

Variety’s 2014 Breakthrough Actor Winner: Will Forte

6 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Variety Breakthrough of the Year Awards, which recognizes a select group of rising stars in entertainment and technology, will be held Jan. 9 at the Consumer Electronics Show. 

Will Forte is your classic late bloomer.

The 43-year-old actor and writer, who’s enjoying the best reviews of his career as Bruce Dern’s long-suffering son in Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska,” admits he’s “sometimes actually pretty surprised” to have bloomed at all.

“I followed my dad into finance initially,” says the Northern California native. “I didn’t even start acting till I was 32.” But after cutting his teeth at improv troupe the Groundlings, Forte didn’t waste any more time.

“My first writing job was at MTV, then I worked for David Letterman, and then in 2002 I got ‘Saturday Night Live,’ which was huge in terms of both the comedy and acting,” he says.
