Small Screen Remake Of Let The Right One In Enters Development

17 March 2015 1:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Swedish horror Let The Right One In has already been subjected to the Hollywood treatment, but that’s not going to stop its exsanguination in favor of another remake. For this latest iteration, currently in development at A&E, the network has tapped Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis and writer Brandon Boyce to revamp the movie a second time.

A&E snagged the rights from Hammer Films Productions – who produced the original movie based on John Ajvide Lindqvist’s best-selling novel – in a bidding frenzy. The network nearly lost out to Showtime, whose slate already boasts the genre-tastic Penny Dreadful. All’s fair in love and (bidding) war.

Like all other previous versions of the property, the series will revolve about a bullied teen boy who befriends a young girl – who turns out to be a century-old vampire unable to restrain her bloodlust.

The first adaptation sprung up in the »

‘Pride’ Producer David Livingstone Moved From Marketing Movies to Making Them

13 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 20 years at Polygram, Universal and Working Title, in both London and Los Angeles, David Livingstone mastered the art of selling quirky British movies to a global audience. He drove the campaigns for everything from “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and “Trainspotting” to “Billy Elliot” and “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.”

So it’s only fitting that, having decided in 2012 to quit as president of worldwide marketing and distribution at Working Title Films in order to strike out on his own as a producer, Livingstone should be rewarded with the Bafta for outstanding British debut, alongside writer Stephen Beresford, for “Pride,” the true-life story of others who left their comfort zone for the greater good — gay activists who help raise money for striking miners in ’80s Britain.

A stage musical version of the movie and a biopic about Judy Garland are next for Livingstone, who admits that launching his production company, »

Eggsy’s Game: Vaughn’s Hyperviolent Reinterpretation of the Super Spy Caper

While a release in February doesn’t speak highly of Twentieth Century Fox’s hopes for the beginning of a new, lucrative franchise, it seems the studio is attempting a bit of reverse psychology with its release of Matthew Vaughn’s clumsily titled Kingsman: The Secret Service. Bringing back farfetched ridiculousness to the super spy genre, Vaughn is going for a dirty, sexy, funny version of the antics usually on display in James Bond (and it features two cast members from Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy….though comparison with that title ends there). Viciously, even shockingly violent at times for a studio feature, there’s a certain amount of refreshment to be had from Vaughn’s decidedly adult treatment of material that was originally the comic book “The Secret Service.” But its inescapable layers of self-awareness, paired with its »

From Smiley’s People to Wolf Hall, the best TV dramas can't be rushed

11 February 2015 5:36 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Slow-burning stories of emotional and political intricacy need time to develop – and they’re all the better for it

While the main terrors of getting older are physical and professional, there is one cultural dread – the fear that a once-loved entertainment will lose its appeal, like a country that disappoints on revisiting. Each time Smiley’s People comes around, I hesitate to watch, just in case its greatness has faded. But its latest repeat run – which concluded on Tuesday night on BBC4 – has confirmed that this 1982 adaptation of John le Carré’s 1979 novel is among the most beautiful and enduring achievements of TV drama.

Although slightly less celebrated than an earlier book and BBC serial featuring the spy George Smiley, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – partly because that novel has had a recent lavish movie makeover – Smiley’s People is slightly the better of the two small-screen le Carrés, mainly because Alec Guinness, »

For Your Eyes Only: Watch This 3-Minute Supercut Of Spy Movies

10 February 2015 8:26 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After dozens of advanced screenings nationwide over the past month, Matthew Vaughn’s spy comedy “Kingsman: The Secret Service” is finally hitting Us theaters this weekend (read our A- review here) and a new espionage-themed supercut has arrived online to get you in the sneaky mood. Titled “For Your Eyes Only” and edited by Cineplex Movies, the three-minute supercut focuses mostly on modern spy movies, which means less “The Spy Who Came In From The Cold” and more “Salt.” Some of the movies that make appearances include both the Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner “Bourne” flicks, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” the “Mission: Impossible” series, every iteration of James Bond (minus George Lazenby, or at least he wasn’t easily spotted), “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “The American” and, perplexingly, the Nazi-Tom Cruise-with-an-eyepatch-starring “Valkyrie,” which in our opinion is far closer to a war thriller than a spy one, covert operations. »

Colin Firth plays the dapper spy in 16 new Kingsman images

3 February 2015 8:43 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

With his posh accent and perfect manners, Colin Firth always seemed like the ideal casting for a dapper British spy. We caught a glimpse of this in his turn as the “Tailor” in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy in 2011. Firth trades in Tinker Tailor’s Gary Oldman for Michael Caine as his spy superior, adding a little bit of punk and circumstance to the genre with Kingsman: The Secret Service and newcomer Taran Egerton.

Egerton has called Firth “badass” more than once in his interviews leading up to the film’s release date, and just from the trailers alone, we can’t help but agree that Firth’s Kingsman tongue-in-cheek, gun-toting, ass-kicking role looks nothing like anything the former Mr. Darcy has ever done.

Kingsman: The Secret Service hits theatres on February 13, and also stars Samuel L. JacksonMark Strong – another Tinker Tailor addition – Star Wars’ Mark Hamill, and Jack Davenport from Pirates of the Caribbean. »

27 January 2015 7:52 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Lionsgate released the first trailer Tuesday for its upcoming mystery thriller “Child 44″ starring Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, and Noomi Rapace.

In the movie, Hardy plays Leo Demidov, a member of the Soviet military police in 1950’s Moscow. After his colleague’s son is found dead, Demidov becomes convinced the child was murdered. He investigates, only to be told by a superior (played by Vincent Cassel) that “murder is strictly a capitalist disease.”

Tom Hardy Looks For ‘Child 44′ In New Trailer

27 January 2015 11:34 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Tom Hardy rejoins forces with Gary Oldman for their fourth collaboration after The Dark Knight Rises, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Lawless, in murder mystery Child 44. The film sees a hunt for a prolific serial killer in Soviet Russia, where many claim murder just doesn’t happen. Directed by Daniel Espinosa, who graduated to Hollywood with his 2010 hit Safe House, the film looks incredibly tense, with the cold landscape adding to the atmosphere of the film.

We love a bit of Gary Oldman, especially when putting on an accent, and the duo of Oldman and Hardy hasn’t let us down before. Joining them are the likes of Charles Dance, Noomi Rapace, and Vincent Cassel, as well as Oldman’s Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes co-star Jason Clarke. It’s quite the international cast and we can’t wait to see Tom Rob Smith’s novel hit the big screen. »

Tom Hardy's Child 44 gets intense first trailer

27 January 2015 11:31 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Tom Hardy practices his Russian accent as serial killer hunter Leo Demidov in the first trailer for the Soviet Union-set Child 44.

Based on the bestselling novel by Tom Rob SmithChild 44 sees Hardy as disgraced secret police agent after refusing to denounce his wife Raisa (Noomi Rapace) as a traitor.  Exiled from Moscow for his refusal, Demidov joins forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman) to investigate a series of brutal child murders during the Stalin era.  But it’s not going to be easy: Demidov’s rival Vasili (Joel Kinnaman) threatens a system-wide cover-up, insisting that there’s no crime in Stalin’s paradise society.

The first trailer for Daniel Espinosa’s film looks to promise some explosive action sequences.  The film is a reunion of sorts for Hardy- Child 44 marks his second time collaborating with Noomi Rapace after having appeared together in last fall’s The Drop. »

PBS' 'Wolf Hall' Starring Damian Lewis Could Be TV's Next Great Antihero Story

19 January 2015 11:05 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Will Henry VIII be Emmy winner Damian Lewis' first, great post-Nick Brody role? Directed by Peter Kosminsky and written by Peter Straughan (one half of the Oscar-nominated "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" duo), this six-part BBC drama adaptation of Hilary Mantel's hit novels "Wolf Hall" and "Bring Up the Bodies" will broadcast stateside on PBS April 5. Lewis plays the eighth Henry opposite top-shelf Shakespeare thespian Mark Rylance, playing the King's ruthless counselor Thomas Cromwell. Claire Foy, Mark Gatiss, Charity Wakefield, Joanne Whalley and Jonathan Pryce, who was recently seen as a narcissistic asshole professor in Alex Ross Perry's "Listen Up Philip," head up the sprawling cast. The series' producers and star recently held court at the TV Critics Association's winter press junket, revealing that the series will turn on the dark heart of Cromwell with all the trappings of TV's greatest antiheroes: think Walter White, Don Draper, Rust »

DVD Review – A Most Wanted Man (2014)

19 January 2015 7:35 AM, PST | 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.


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

With this release Corbijn has once again proven himself to be a director with no small amount of style. Ever since his feature debut with 2007’s powerful and understated Ian Curtis biopic Control, the Dutch photographer and music video director has brought a tremendous amount of fluidity and depth of style to his body of work. This, a measured and considered adaptation of John Le Carre’s  2008 stirring liberal response to the ongoing – and currently escalating – war on terror  is a fascinating and artful take on the spy movie genre.

Similarities can and have been drawn between this terrifically moving piece and another recent Le »

‘The Imitation Game’ Cracks $100M At Global Box Office

18 January 2015 2:10 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The Imitation Game, which garnered eight Oscar nominations on Thursday, has reached a global box office cume north of $102.3M. That includes an estimated $50.8M in North America through today, and an international estimate of $51.5M, per FilmNation. The current international frame was worth $6.6M with five new territories added including Belgium and Sweden. Among the key markets still to bow are Germany, France, Brazil and Russia.

“This is a wonderful milestone for The Imitation Game,” says producer Teddy Schwarzman of Black Bear Pictures. “We made this independent film for a fraction of a studio budget, and no one involved ever imagined a day like today. It is a testament to our director, Morten Tyldum, screenwriter Graham Moore, our wonderful ensemble cast, and the hardest working crew imaginable, who came together to ensure Alan Turing’s legacy could find a much deserved place in history. Audiences worldwide are now ensuring this becomes a reality. »

Watch: The Best Films of the Decade So Far

9 January 2015 9:17 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Considering it is the halfway point in this current decade of ours, 2014 is about as good a time as many to begin making "Best of the Decade (So Far)" lists -- which I have actually attempted to do over on Letterboxd -- and it seems the fine folks over at streaming site and film blog Fandor agree, as just yesterday video essayist Kevin B. Lee posted a video that counts down the 26 best films of the decade so far, as determined by a poll he took of "290 film critics and movie lovers on Twitter and Facebook." Lee took to Slate yesterday to explain the results a bit more in-depth, including the importance of social media played in the poll, how Cannes was a better predictor than the Oscars, how movies' fortunes rise and fall over time, and more. It's an interesting read, so if you want to check it out, »
