'Her' Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema To Shoot Sam Mendes' 'Bond 24,' Filming Starts In December

17 September 2014 6:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Since lensing 2008’s “Let The Right One In” for Tomas Alfredson, cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (who we've had our eye on since we put him in our On The Rise feature in 2010) has become a popular choice for auteurs when their usual director of photography is unavailable. Hoytema stepped in for frequent Spike Jonze collaborator Lance Acord on “Her” and he subbed in for cinematographer-turned-director Wally Pfister on Christopher Nolan’s upcoming “Interstellar.” As if replacing those two great DPs wasn’t tough enough, the “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” cinematographer is going to have to fill some very big and iconic shoes for his next gig. We found out earlier this year that the amazing and legendary Roger Deakins would not be returning to work on “Bond 24” with Sam Mendes, and now HitFix is reporting that Hoytema will be filling in instead. Interestingly, there’s a possibility – not »

"Bond 24" Gets A New Cinematographer

16 September 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though it got great notices, without a doubt the most universally acclaimed element of the Sam Mendes-directed 2012 James Bond film "Skyfall" was that of the visual work and compositions of cinematographer Roger Deakins.

Sadly Mendes couldn't get Deakins back for the upcoming "Skyfall" due to his commitment to the Coens' upcoming "Hail, Caesar". It's a fair enough scheduling conflict though, after all Deakins' work on "Skyfall" prevented him from working on the Coens' "Inside Llewyn Davis".

Despite Deakins' departure, it seems Mendes has settled on a superb replacement. In Contention reports that Hoyte van Hoytema has scored the gig.

The Dutch-Swedish cinematographer first came to notice for the original "Let the Right One In" and has since done stellar work on the likes of "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," "The Fighter," "Her" and Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi epic "Interstellar".

The site also says, though this is unconfirmed, that Bond 24 »

'Interstellar' cinematographer to fill Roger Deakins' shoes on Sam Mendes' Bond 24

16 September 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BAFTA-nominated cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema has been turning heads ever since his stunning work in the stylish Swedish horror film "Let the Right One In" crossed the Atlantic six years ago. And lately, he's just getting all the good gigs, having stepped in for Spike Jonze regular Lance Acord on last year's "Her" and for Christopher Nolan's right hand man Wally Pfister on the upcoming "Interstellar." Well, you can add another big pair of shoes for the talented director of photography to fill. With Roger Deakins exiting the James Bond franchise after 2012's "Skyfall," we can confirm that director Sam Mendes has tapped van Hoytema to shoot the still untitled 24th installment of the series. Deakins won the Asc prize for "Skyfall" two years ago, but as is often the story, he watched someone else take the Oscar (in this case, Claudio Miranda for "Life of Pi," which is »

Spike TV Clicks On Gary Oldman’s ‘Deep Web’

16 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Gary Oldman’s exec producer credits are getting a boost courtesy of a deal struck between the Spike TV network, Flame Ventures and Flying Studio Pictures (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), which the actor runs alongside Douglas Urbanski. Deep Web is about a Silicon Valley computer expert who becomes the mastermind behind a globe-spanning illegal web portal, landing him on the Most Wanted list from the comfort of his own office. Sounding like a variation on Breaking Bad with megabytes instead of meth, the project is written by Scott Gold from Under The Dome. Drew Comins and Tony Krantz of Flame were instrumental in optioning Deep Web (inspired by a Time magazine cover story about the Silk Road cyber enterprise) and bringing Flying Studio to the table. Krantz is producing.

It’s Oldman’s first TV production job and whether he steps in front of the camera or not this is »

'Bond 24' Gets a Start Date: Hoytema Replaces Deakins

15 September 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Now, with Roger Deakins declining to return to "Bond 24" (not enough left in the Bond universe to satisfy him creatively), director Sam Mendes has brought on cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema ("Interstellar," "Her," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy") to shoot the sequel to "Skyfall."  Considering how Hoytema is such a thinking person's Dp and has created such distinctive visual palettes for directors Christopher Nolan ("Interstellar"), Spike Jonze ("Her"), and Tomas Alfredson ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "Let the Right One In"), he should be the perfect match for Sam Mendes (who's worked with two of the best in the late Conrad Hall and Deakins). Who knows: "Bond 24" might see a return to shooting film as well. Meanwhile, there's another connection to the iconic "Goldfinger" for Daniel Craig's fourth outing as 007 (which opens October 23rd, 2015 in the UK and November »

Why Tom Hardy Will Probably Never Make Another Romantic Comedy

14 September 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tom Hardy is best known for his serious work, be it turning up the drama in features like Warrior and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or just turning into a full-blown monster, as seen in movies like Bronson and The Dark Knight Rises. That said, two years ago he decided to branch out with a bit of lighter fare and tried doing a romantic comedy. What's unfortunate is that the experience has sworn him off the genre for the foreseeable future. This bit of knowledge was dropped by Tom Hardy in a recent interview with USA Today during the Toronto International Film Festival, where the actor was promoting his new movie The Drop, based on the novel and adapted by Dennis Lehane. During the conversation, Hardy revealed that he likes challenging himself by taking on projects unlike those he's tried before, but that his experiment doing the 2012 McG film This Means »

The 84th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Once again today I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Moneyball The nominees here for this ceremony were The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. »

Movie Review – A Most Wanted Man (2014)

9 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

 A Most Wanted Man, 2014.

Directed by Anton Corbijn.

Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, Daniel Brühl, Robin Wright, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Derya Alabora and Nina Hoss.

Synopsis:

A Chechen Muslim illegally immigrates to Hamburg, where he gets caught in the international war on terror.

Sodden, dishevelled and alone a young man (Grigoriy Dobrygin) pulls himself from the River Elbe. In the grey dawn of a Hamburg morning Gunther Bachmann (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) sits across from his colleague Irna Frey (Nina Hoss). A cramped office divided neatly down the centre, piles of papers, reminders pinned across the walls and a comfortable silence between them.

Soon CCTV footage featuring this very same young man (Grigoriy Dobrygin) in conversation will cause a domino effect. Bachmann (Seymour Hoffman) and his team will become embroiled with CIA operative Martha Sullivan (Robin Wright), banker Tommy Brue (Willem Dafoe) and human rights lawyer Anna Richter (Rachel McAdams »

A Most Wanted Man review: Philip Seymour Hoffman's final starring role

9 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Anton Corbijn; Screenwriter: Andrew Bovell; Starring: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Willem Dafoe, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Daniel Brühl; Running time: 122 mins; Certificate: 15

Philip Seymour Hoffman's still has two more appearances in The Hunger Games finale Mockingjay before he's gone from our screens forever, but his last starring role is this John le Carré adaptation about a German intelligence agent tracking a Chechen illegal immigrant in the port city of Hamburg.

Hoffman's Günther Bachmann is a man operating in the shadows and, like George Smiley (played superbly by Gary Oldman in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), he can be low-key to the point of anonymity. Issa Karpov (Grigoriy Dobrygin) is the refugee who arrives through the city docks and into the crosshairs of Bachmann, who believes he could be a terror threat.

Of course, this being a le Carré yarn, the web of intrigue spins out far and wide, »

Telluride Film Review: ‘The Imitation Game’

30 August 2014 6:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nothing is too heavily encrypted in “The Imitation Game,”, rendered in such unerringly tasteful, “Masterpiece Theatre”-ish fashion that every one of Turing’s professional triumphs and personal tragedies arrives right on schedule and with nary a hair out of place. More than once during the accomplished (but not particularly distinctive) English-language debut for Norwegian director Morten Tyldum (“Headhunters”), you can catch the ghost of the late Richard Attenborough nodding approvingly over the decorous proceedings. And yet so innately compelling is Turing’s story — to say nothing of Benedict Cumberbatch’s masterful performance — it’s hard not to get caught up in this well-told tale and its skillful manipulations. Likely to prove more popular with general audiences than highbrow critics, this unapologetically old-fashioned prestige picture (the first of the season’s dueling studies of brilliant but tragic English academics, to be followed soon by “The Theory of Everything”) looks and »

‘Imitation Game’ Demands Oscar’s Attention (Analysis)

29 August 2014 11:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Imitation Game” is clearly an awards contender: Complex, impeccably executed and unique. The film’s offbeat approach to an oddball character will be its greatest strength — and its challenge.

A historical drama about WWII cryptographer Alan Turing, “The Imitation Game” is a kudos candidate in multiple categories, including the superb performances of Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley (lead or supporting? She could go either way). Artisan contributions seem like shoo-in contenders. And the film, direction and screenplay are clearly in the Fyc category.

The big challenge to both mainstream audiences and awards voters: selling it. Based on Andrew Hodges’ biography on Turing, the British mathematician who cracked the Nazi’s code, “Imitation Game” demands that the audience work to keep up. When awards voters have a stack of DVDs and invitations to screenings, they’ll need a lot of buzz to lure them to a film about a WWII-era »

See 1920′s Jennifer Lawrence in new image from Serena

28 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new image from Susanne Bier’s Depression-era drama Serena has been released, featuring Jennifer Lawrence on horseback as the title character, Serena Pemberton.

Lawrence co-leads the film along with her American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper. The film hits UK cinemas on October 24, but still lacks a release date in the United States. The film went through an extensive 18-month editing process, and has failed to pick up a Us distributor. That means that despite a great cast and meaty dramatic material, Serena likely won’t have a chance to pick up any Academy Award nominations this fall, and may someday quietly get a direct-to-home video release in the States.

Directed by Susanne Bier (director of the 2010 Oscar winner Best Foreign Film, In A Better World), Serena stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man), Sean Harris (Prometheus), Sam Reid (The Railway Man), Toby Jones »
