'A Most Wanted Man' trailer showcases Philip Seymour Hoffman's final lead role

11 April 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I still find it painful to talk or write about Philip Seymour Hoffman -- no celebrity passing in the last couple of years has hit me quite as hard as his, and I know that goes for many of us. So rewatching Anton Corbijn's "A Most Wanted Man" is going to be a strangely melancholy experience, not least because it's as strong a reminder as anything of what cinema has lost: as a rumpled German intelligence agent weary of post-9/11 paranoia, the actor gives one of his finest lead turns. I called his performance "a thing of wily, weathered beauty" at the film's Sundance premiere, mere weeks before Hoffman's death; viewed after the fact, the sense of palpable exhaustion he brings to the character may seem morbidly poignant. The film itself is rather special, too: a worthy companion piece, of sorts, to fellow John Le Carré adaptation "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, »

'Joe' (2013) Movie Review

11 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

David Gordon Green's Joe mines backwoods, hick territory, finding a slight narrative kinship with Jeff Nichols' Mud combined with the tonal darkness of Winter's Bone. The strongest thread holding the three films together is obviously the focus on down-on-their-luck families with bad dental hygiene, drinking problems and poor living conditions, all of which are traits I typically loathe. Narrative's of this sort typically prey on the built in sadness that comes with seeing hard luck families scraping to survive rather than developing actual characters, but every so often a few rise above the rest. In this case Joe works and it doesn't. The tragic narrative has its hiccups along the way, but improves as it builds its story around two strong performances from Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan, elevating it slightly above similar exploitative white trash weepers. The exact location is unknown, but the film takes place in »

20 actors who almost got the part: Katniss, Loki, Bond, Batman

29 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With rumours flying about a new Indiana Jones and Disney reportedly closing in on their final choices for Jj Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, the Hollywood casting machine is operating at an even higher temperature than usual.

You'll be familiar with some of these near-misses, but others are frankly astonishing. Which rapper almost took Matt Damon's role in Elysium? Which former Friends star was the first choice to front Men in Black? And why is Leonardo DiCaprio Christian Bale's nemesis? Read on...

Al Pacino - Star Wars

Pacino revealed during a Q&A session last year that the role of roguish smuggler Han Solo was "his for the taking" back in the '70s, but he turned it down because he didn't understand the script. Harrison Ford made the role iconic and ended up having his own issues with Lucas's script, famously telling the director "You can type this s**t, »

Line-up announced for Sundance London 2014

25 March 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The full program for Sundance London 2014 has been announced and there are some good International premieres for our viewing pleasure including The Voices, Frank and Fruitvale Station.

21 films have been revealed along with 18 shorts, talks, music and retrospective screenings including Reservoir Dogs, Memento and Winter's Bone.

Below are a few of the highlights:

Frank

An offbeat comedy about a wannabe musician who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant garde rock band led by the enigmatic Frank—a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head.

Fruitvale Station

Oscar Grant was a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who loved his friends, was generous to strangers, and had a hard time telling the truth to the mother of his beautiful daughter. He was scared and courageous and charming and raw, and as human as the community he was part of. That community paid attention to him, »

Starred Up review – a powerful prison drama that pits father against son | Mark Kermode

23 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jack O'Connell gives an electrifying performance as a violent teenager forced to confront parental authority in prison

When inspirational director Alan Clarke cooked up an authentic television portrait of incarcerated British youth in the late 1970s, the resultant film was so alarming that it was promptly banned by the BBC. Clarke subsequently remade Scum for the cinema, and both the small- and big-screen versions of his most notorious work have since cast long shadows over their respective mediums. Plaudits, then, to David Mackenzie for fashioning a tough but empathetic (if uneven) prison drama which marks out its own territory in an arena in which Clarke's epochal work is still the daddy, even now.

Shot (but not set) in Northern Ireland on a tight schedule and even tighter budget, this eye-catching and frequently pulse-pounding drama finds high-risk young offender Eric (Jack O'Connell) being moved up to an adult prison where he »

Why Roadside Attractions Is the Right Distributor to Handle Justin Simien's College Satire 'Dear White People' (Video)

20 March 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

I wondered who would have the guts to pick up North American rights to marketer-turned-filmmaker Justin Simien's biting college satire "Dear White People," which scooped up a Sundance Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent and has already sold out two shows at New York's New Directors/New Films.  Luckily for "Dear White People," the answer is ten-year-old Roadside Attractions ("Mud," "Arbitrage," "Winter's Bone"), a smart and innovative distributor (whose co-heads Howard Cohen and Eric d'Arbeloff got married last weekend). “Justin Simien is a funny, fresh and current voice with his finger on the Millennials’ pulse,” said Cohen, who describes the movie as a "sly and extremely topical satire sparking conversations about our supposed ‘post-racial,’ 21st century America.” Simien's first film charges out of the gate exploding with all the things the young filmmaker wants to say about racial politics. The L.A.-based one-time studio publicist, 30, explores millennial »

Sundance hit 'Dear White People' hitches a ride with Roadside Attractions

20 March 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Nearly two months after the Sundance Film Festival wrapped up for another year, the acquisitions news is still trickling in, and the latest hit from Park City to find Us distribution is "Dear White People." Justin Simien's debut feature was one of the few to generate critical discussion and debate in what was a pretty low-temperature Us Dramatic competition, and was duly recognized with a special Breakthrough Talent award. Now Lionsgate and their adventurous indie arm Roadside Attractions have picked it up for the North American market, with a release pencilled in for the autumn. That's quite a result for a film that, while buzzy in a festival environment, hardly represents an easy sell. Simien's campus comedy rather bluntly tackles the theme of racial tension in a fictional Ivy League college; for every Sundance attendee who thought it heady and clever, there was another who found it simply obnoxious. »

Shailene Woodley: 'Jennifer Lawrence convinced me to do Divergent'

5 March 2014 6:56 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Shailene Woodley has revealed that Jennifer Lawrence convinced her to star in Divergent.

The actress plays Tris Prior in the upcoming film, an adaptation of Veronica Roth's book on a dystopian future where society is split into five factions.

Lionsgate's co-president Erik Feid said he enlisted Lawrence to help him convince Woodley, after working together on Winter's Bone.

The actresses then had a series of email exchanges about the role of Tris.

"'You must do it. You will not regret it for a second'," Woodley quotes Lawrence as saying in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "'Yes, there are some hard things, but there are so many beautiful things that will come from an opportunity like this'."

The 22-year-old also revealed her reasons for being hesitant about signing up to the film and possible sequels.

Sundance London is to screen three of the most celebrated films to come from the Sundance Film Festival in its 30-year history.

17 February 2014 1:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Multiple story ideas and acting styles converge in the schmaltzy fantasy-romance Winter's Tale—not to be confused with Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale or Jennifer Lawrence's Winter's Bone. In 1916 New York, skilled thief Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) has his heart stolen by Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), a virginal beauty stricken with consumption. These two lovers dance, drink, talk of destiny, and stroll through winterscapes resembling Thomas Kinkade paintings. Then Beverly dies mere moments after Peter deflowers her. (Hey, go out with a bang!) Peter tries to save his true love and even travels across time, all while being hunted by evil Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe). Before falling for this Tale, get it »
