Skins: Where Are They Now?

17 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The BAFTA award winning teen drama sensation Skins took Britain by storm in 2007 with its controversial story lines and relatable and eccentric characters. The show’s success made it the perfect training ground for up-and-coming British teen actors to throw themselves into the spotlight. In Justin Edgar’s energetic new comedy We Are The Freaks we find two of Skins‘ most popular alumni take centre stage on the big screen. Parsons (SkinsMike Bailey) and Chunks (SkinsSean Teale) accompany Jack (Jamie Blackley) on an eventful weekend that might change their lives forever. As this stylish, coming 0f age, cult comedy takes us back to the rebellious era of the 1990s, we celebrate the release of We Are The Freaks by taking our own look back at some of our favourite Skins stars and find out what they’ve been up to since leaving the hit drama.

The HeyUGuys Summer Preview – Chef

17 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the face of so many blockbuster properties, it takes a healthy dose of courage to put up an independent movie in the summer season, but Open Road have done exactly that for Jon Favreau’s latest effort, Chef, and it’s promising to be one of the best movies we’ll see in the next few months.

The writer-director has of course spent the best part of a decade at the helm of films with a budget the size of which he’s now going up against – Cowboys & Aliens, Iron Man 2, and Iron Man all since 2008. And now he’s returning to his roots to bring us a low-budget indie comedy, and not only that, but he stars in the leading role as well.

The premise is pretty straightforward: Chef Carl Casper loses his job as head chef of a restaurant, and decides to go into business opening up his own food truck, »

The Love Punch Review

14 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Though narrowly – and somewhat unfairly – missing out on an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of P.L. Travers in the brilliant Saving Mr. Banks, British actress Emma Thompson now returns with something a little lighter, but by no means more entertaining, as she stars alongside Pierce Brosnan in Joel Hopkins’ comedy caper, The Love Punch.

Thompson plays Kate, who after waving her daughter off to university, is on the end of a shock visit from her former husband, Richard (Brosnan). Though still on regular speaking terms, spending a lot of time together is something they haven’t done for a good long while – but when Richard claims that a conniving French businessman (Laurent Lafitte) is screwing them both out of their pensions and life savings, they jump on the next place to pay him a visit. As expected, the arrogant tycoon plays hardball, and so the pair are forced to concoct a plan, »

Participant to co-finance Image Nation's Malala doc

10 April 2014 5:49 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Oscar-winning director of An Inconvenient Truth making the film about the Pakistani teenager who survived a brutal assassination attempt by the Taliban.

Image Nation Abu Dhabi has announced that Us-based Participant Media will co-finance the upcoming Malala Yousafzai documentary from Parkes + MacDonald Productions.

In addition to its financial commitment, Participant will collaborate with Image Nation to launch a social action and advocacy campaign to expand the reach and impact of the film release.

Directed by Davis Guggenheim, the Oscar-winner behind An Inconvenient Truth, the feature-length documentary about Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai’s fight for the right to education is expected to release early 2015.

Malala gained international recognition in 2012 when she survived a brutal assassination attempt by the Taliban at age 14.  Shot in the head and neck when gunmen opened fire on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley, Malala was targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls’ education in her community.

Participant Media Boards Malala Yousafzai Docu As Co-Financer With Image Nation

9 April 2014 6:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Participant Media is joining Image Nation Abu Dhabi as co-financer of the upcoming documentary about Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani student activist who survived a Taliban assassination attempt. Docu is being helmed by “Waiting for Superman” director Davis Guggenheim.

The Malala docu is produced by Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald with whom Image Nation has a longstanding partnership.

In addition to its financial commitment, Participant Media will collaborate with Image Nation to launch a social action and advocacy campaign to expand the reach and impact of the high-profile docu’s theatrical release.

In 2012 Malala Yousafzai was wounded when gunmen opened fire on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 14-year-old teenager, who had been targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls’ education in her community, was shot in the head and neck, sparking international media outrage.

Yousafzai was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, becoming the youngest such nominee in history. »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'The Avengers'

8 April 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Thor, the Black Widow, and Hawkeye joined forces to battle evil (otherwise known as Loki) in this 2012 Marvel film that incited mixed reaction from fans and critics alike. Could director Joss Whedon convincingly weave multiple superhero storylines? Would the ensemble cast of heroes conjure up bad memories of bicker-filled family reunions? Or would it be a feel-good film about the fantastic nature of the good guys?

Skeptics wondered whether a film combining so many heroes would work, but Whedon packed in scene after scene that left audiences craving more and cemented America’s fascination with comic book movies. »

Grand Budapest Hotel overtakes Need for Speed

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

Wes Anderson enjoys first UK No 1 as takings look set to eclipse his Fantastic Mr Fox

The winner

When it debuted in third place with £1.53m from 284 cinemas, Grand Budapest Hotel always looked on course to become Wes Anderson's biggest live-action film at UK cinemas, displacing The Royal Tenenbaums (£3.33m lifetime). A week later, with an expansion to 372 venues, the film found itself in second place in the UK box office chart. And now, in its third week of release, the Middle European caper grabs the top spot, dethroning video-game adaptation Need for Speed. With third-weekend takings of £1.27m from 458 sites, Grand Budapest Hotel has earned £6.31m in just 17 days. The film has a real shot at overtaking Anderson's animated family flick Fantastic Mr Fox (£9.19m) to become his biggest-ever UK hit.

It's not unprecedented for a film to rise slowly to the top of the box office chart, »

Dame Judi Dench will reportedly not attend tonight's (March 2) 86th Academy Awards.

Oscar Parties: Lupita Nyong’o, June Squibb, Sally Hawkins, Anna Kendrick Celebrate in the Rain

1 March 2014 7:05 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Although Los Angeles only recorded 1.53 inches of rain over the course of 12 hours on Friday according to the National Weather Service, it was enough precipitation to cause a rather sizable and particularly deep tidal pool outside West Hollywood’s Fig & Olive. On the penultimate day prior to Hollywood’s most famous night, Oscar Sunday, the town was out in force.

Helen Mirren and Oscar nominee June Squibb shook hands at Women in Film’s cocktail party , the former in white and the latter “blinged out,” a status of which the 85-year-old “Nebraska” actress has grown weary. “I’m looking forward to getting back to normal life. Although I did put work on hold to do this,” she said, motioning to the room packed primarily with champagne-toting women. She’s not writing a speech for either the Independent Spirit Awards or the Oscars, but rather “has really been thinking about what to say. »

Pierce Brosnan And Emma Thompson Pull Off A Heist In New Trailer For The Love Punch

12 February 2014 8:22 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I happen to be a connoisseur of the newly minted sub-genre of old or middle-aged actors appearing in films that are plainly beneath them. From the Red films to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, there’s something so fun and warming about watching truly great performers in light action or romantic comedies, obviously enjoying the vacation.

The latest in this growing sub-genre is The Love Punch, featuring Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan as a divorced couple out to pull off a daring heist. When Richard (Brosnan) loses his employee pension fund after his firm is defrauded, he and ex-wife Kate (Thompson) head to Paris to confront the crooked French financier who took their nest egg. Discovering that the financier is about to be married, the pair concoct a scheme to steal his fiancee’s massive diamond necklace. Along for the ride are Jerry and Penelope (Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie »

Berlin: Rob Reiner Talks New Film ‘And So It Goes’

5 February 2014 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2006, when Rob Reiner was shooting “The Bucket List” with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, he got the idea for another project — a feature dealing with people falling in love later in life.

Eight years later, Reiner’s “And So It Goes” is up for sale at Berlin. Produced by Foresight Unlimited in association with Reiner’s Castle Rock, it marks the first time Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton have appeared onscreen together.

Douglas portrays a self-centered real estate agent whose life is turned upside down when his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter, played by Sterling Jerins, whom he never knew. Keaton plays the neighbor of Douglas’ character. The cast is rounded out by Frankie Valli, Scott Shepherd and Frances Sternhagen.

“We really thought about getting Jack (Nicholson) in the film but he really does not want to act any more,” Reiner said.

About Time: VOD Spotlight

At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson, Anna Karenina) discovers he can travel in time. Tim’s father (Bill Nighy, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can’t change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life. The idea for About Time came from a conversation that director Richard Curtis (Pirate Radio, Love Actually) had with a friend about what they would do if they were told that they had only 24 hours left to live. … Continue reading →

Kristin Scott Thomas: 'I cannot cope with another film'

Kristin Scott Thomas has had enough. She has been working flat out for 30 years, and made 65 films: having lived in Paris since the age of 19, she effectively has two careers, one in English and one in French. Even her cleaner thinks her workload is insane. Last September, for the first time in her life, she reached a point where she could no longer go on. "I just suddenly thought, I cannot cope with another film," she says. "I realised I've done the things I know how to do so many times in different languages, and I just suddenly thought, I can't do it any more. I'm bored by it. So I'm stopping." Having always been a workaholic, she now likes to think of herself, »
