The Notable Films of 2010: Part Seven

29 December 2009 7:16 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Mother and Child

Opens: 2010

Cast: Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington

Director: Rodrigo Garcia

Summary: A tale of a mother and daughter, separated at birth, who struggle with the damage done by the most important person missing in their lives while a young African-Americn woman deals with an unwanted pregnancy and the adoption process.

Analysis: Scoring rave reviews in Toronto, the $7 million latest effort of Rodrigo Garcia ("Nine Lives," "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her") once again shows off his skill at weaving multiple narratives together in clever and unexpected ways. At its heart it's an emotional family drama, but Garcia excels with his female characters which makes the involvement of Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington and especially Annette Benning thrilling.

The few criticisms levelled at the film were toward some pacing and credibility issues in the last act, but otherwise praised it for not »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Five

23 December 2009 10:10 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Hippie Hippie Shake

Opens: 2010

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sienna Miller, Max Minghella, Emma Booth, Lee Ingleby

Director: Beeban Kidron

Summary: Follows the love story of Oz editor Richard Neville and Louise Ferrier. Neville and his cohorts launch the London edition of Oz amidst the 1960s counterculture and are subsequently put on trial for distributing a sexually explicit issue.

Analysis: One of the most troubled productions in Working Title's history, 'Hippie' began development back in 1998 but failed to get beyond script stage both in 1999 and in 2002 when "Elizabeth" helmer Shekhar Kapur was attached to direct. Filming finally got underway late 2007 with director Beeban Kidron in charge and shooting seemed to proceed without issue aside from feminist author Germaine Greer being vehemently unhappy about being depicted on film.

Actually the film scored quite a bit of free press for a skinny dipping scene where full-frontal shots of actress Sienna Miller shooting the sequence »

Matt Damon Is a Welcome Sight in Miami

23 December 2009 9:00 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Matt Damon took a solo jog yesterday near his house in Miami. He's home in Florida following an extended stay in NYC, where he filmed The Adjustment Bureau and had a few big nights out promoting other projects. Matt's gearing up to celebrate the holidays and New Year's with his girls, and he has lots to look forward to in 2010. He was one of three actors to nab two Golden Globe nominations, earning them for his work in both The Informant! and Invictus. He also picked up a nod from the SAG Awards, so hopefully we'll see lots of Matt and his exercise-toned bod dressed up during awards season. View 2 Photos › »

New Images from Your Highness, The Adjustment Bureau, Repo Men, and Get Him To The Greek

21 December 2009 1:52 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Along with their great news about the release date for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Playlist also landed some new (albeit tiny) images for David Gordon Green’s Your Highness starring Danny McBride, James Franco, and Natalie Portman; George Nolfi’s The Adjustment Bureau starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt; Repo Men starring Liev Schreiber, Jude Law, and Forest Whitaker; and Nicholas Stoller’s Get Him to the Greek starring Russell Brand and Jonah Hill.  You can also see tiny images for some other films but those are the biggies because they’re on the top row and there’s no way you can argue with how those images were placed.  My logic is bulletproof.

The Playlist also has a couple of slightly larger images from The Adjustment Bureau and Greek and you can check them both out after the jump.

The 26-year-old actress stars alongside Matt Damon in the sci-fi thriller about an affair between the dancer and a politician, who are kept apart by mysterious forces. Emily has trained hard to lose »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Four

19 December 2009 11:50 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Georgia

Opens: 2010

Cast: Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia, Rupert Friend, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Johnathon Schaech

Director: Renny Harlin

Summary: An American journalist, his cameraman, and a Georgian native get caught in the crossfire of the five-day Russia-Georgia conflict in August 2008, and then have to deal with their obligation to be impartial.

Analysis: A timely parable on war, or Hollywood propaganda filmmaking at its worst? Wherever it goes, especially in Europe and the former Soviet states, "Georgia" will cause a lot of talk and controversy as the incidents depicted are still so fresh in many's minds. Like all topics of the sort, it'll also have its strong supporters and detractors having opinions on the film long before a frame of footage is screened anywhere.

Shot on-location in Tbilisi, the project also marks a potential return to form for Finnish director Renny Harlin. Given the right material the skilled action director delivered three »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Three

Dinner for Schmucks

Opens: July 23rd 2010

Cast: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Bruce Greenwood, David Walliams

Director: Jay Roach

Summary: A renowned publisher encourages his friends to invite the most pathetic guests possible for their weekly dinner party. Just as they find the most pathetic man yet, the host is injured and ends up trapped with the man all night long.

Analysis: A remake of director Francis Veber's 1998 César award-winning "Le Diner des cons", 'Schmucks' is one of the highest profile comedies of next year with one of the strongest casts for the genre in recent memory. It also marks the return of "Austin Powers" and "Meet the Parents" helmer Jay Roach who has produced several films in recent years but hasn't directed since 2004's "Meet the Fockers".

The question now lies not in the performers or director but the material itself and whether a Gallic comedy can »

Blunt In Agony From Dance Training

16 December 2009 12:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Emily Blunt is in constant pain on the set of her latest movie The Adjustment Bureau - because intense dance training has left her in agony.

The British actress plays a ballet dancer in the picture, which she's currently shooting in New York with Matt Damon.

Blunt is being put through her paces by a professional - and she admits the classes are crippling.

She says, "Every day I’m in dance boot camp. It's a wonderful idea to have the girl be a dancer, but it's very high maintenance.

"I'm really loving the challenge. I'm training with this amazing ballet company, and it's been a real awakening for me when it comes to fitness. Everything hurts all the time." »

Reactions from Golden Globe nominees

15 December 2009 6:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Golden Globe noms announced

Complete list of film and TV nominees

"I'm pumped!" James Cameron said before hopping a plane from New York to Los Angeles, where he hoped to celebrate with the cast and crew of best drama nominee "Avatar" at a screening Tuesday night. "It's been a 4 1/2-year journey, and this is not typically the kind of film that critics love, it being a genre movie and being seen as a big commercial movie." Cameron, also nominated for a best director Golden Globe, was pleased the movie also got some love in the music category. "I think this is James Horner's best score to date," he says. But he says he is sad his actors got short shrift. "Maybe there's a sense that acting for performance capture isn't the same as acting for a lens, which is going to take an education. I think that will eventually go away. »

Matt Damon on 'Bourne 4': 'I wouldn't do it without Paul Greengrass'

4 December 2009 12:53 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Matt Damon is still optimistic that Bourne 4 will happen. But the actor, who's starring in the upcoming Invictus for Clint Eastwood, made it very clear that he wouldn't do the movie without director Paul Greengrass. (Greengrass, who directed both Bourne Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum, dropped out of the fourth film which did not yet have a greenlight last week.) "I feel like someday it's going to happen," Damon said at the premiere of Invictus on Thursday night (that film bows Dec. 11). "We just don't have a script right now and so there's no reason to try to put a round peg into a square hole. »
