‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ Checks In With New Trailer

17 December 2014 5:16 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The sequel to Fox Searchlight’s 2012 sleeper hit, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, has registered a new trailer today that pulls the curtain back a bit more than the one we saw back in August. Richard Gere, Tamsin Greig and David Strathairn are the newest guests at the Indian inn for the “elderly and beautiful” which Dev Patel and Maggie Smith are successfully running. Patel’s Sonny is looking to expand, but it’s making more claims on his time than he has available — especially considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). The original returning cast also includes Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, Ronald Pickup, Diana Hardcastle and Lillete Dubey. Directed by John Madden from an original screenplay by Ol Parker, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel opens in the UK on February 26 and in the U.S. on March 6.

The Gang Are Back In New Trailer For The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

16 December 2014 2:54 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first trailer for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel sequel, aptly titled The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, has arrived online courtesy of The Daily Mail (via Collider). Directed once more by John Madden, the film picks up after the events of the 2011 movie with a touch of franchise expansion in every sense of the word.

As expected, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton and Celia Imrie all reprise their roles from the first outing, along with Dev Patel as the eager Sonny. This time around, the keen entrepreneur has his heart set on turning his rustic accommodations into a chain of hotels.

One of the key components to sequel success is, of course, the addition of fresh meat! So, there’s a couple of new names thrown in to spice up proceedings in the shape of Richard Gere, Tamsin Greig and David Strathairn.

Get a Room at the 'Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' in UK Trailer

16 December 2014 10:07 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"The Marigold Hotel is full up, so we have to expand." Since The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was such a success (both as a fictional business and a movie), it's time for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. The sequel brings back plenty of familiar faces from the first film and adds some new cast members like Richard Gere into the mix. Dev Patel and Maggie Smith are still running the show, and now they have to expand to create a new hotel for all the demand for their rooms. For anyone who enjoyed the first charmer, the new UK trailer shows more of the same, the kind of film to watch with your grandparents. Here's the new UK trailer for Ol Parker's The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (via Daily Mail): You can still watch the first Us trailer for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel right here. »

A Franchise Begins in New Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Trailer

16 December 2014 7:27 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new trailer for director John Madden’s (Shakespeare in Love) sequel The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has been released online.  The follow-up is actually a bit meta, as Dev Patel’s Sonny sets out to franchise his popular Indian hotel by expanding and opening the aptly named Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.  Nearly all of the main cast from the first film returns, plus new additions Richard Gere and David Strathairn.  I found the original to be a sweet movie with a bit of a kick thanks to Maggie Smith’s zingers, and while the nature of sequels makes me doubt this follow-up will match the quality of that first film, the prospect of seeing this cast play off of each other once again is enticing enough. Check out the new international Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, »

I never saw the first one so I have no idea if the title for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is ridiculous or perfect, but as someone not in the know it sounds ridiculous, not that that will matter considering I think all you need here is "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" and the target audience's ears will perk up after the first movie made $136.8 million worldwide on a $10 million budget and this time around the entire gang is back for more. Director John Madden is back with Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Richard Gere, Judi Dench, Celia Imrie, Dev Patel, Tamsin Greig, David Strathairn and Penelope Wilton making up the cast. Here's the plot: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 (or The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) is the expansionist dream of Sonny Kapoor, and its making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, »

16 December 2014 5:28 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the age of everything-gets-a-sequel, even your Aunt's favorite movie "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" gets a followup. The first entry was a box office hit a couple years back, particularly overseas where it roped in $90 million all on its own. And now the series is franchising and expanding, and that's not just snarky talk from us, but the actual plot of the movie. Yep, Dev Patel is back playing Sonny, who is eager to build his hotel business, while Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Penelope Wilton have returned, with even more happening in their lives. Meanwhile, Richard Gere is the new face in the mix, ruining everyone's ovaries as the fresh silver fox on the block.

Ingenious court case: what lies ahead

3 November 2014 1:20 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Ingenious v Hmrc tribunal kicks off today in London.

Ingenious v Hmrc, the case which begins at the Competition Tribunal in Bloomsbury Place London today, marks the culmination of almost a decade of wrangling between the blue chip British media investment company and the Revenue. 

Newspapers have been intrigued by the case because of the celebrity investors involved. David Beckham, Gary Lineker, Jeremy Paxman, Wayne Rooney, David Gower and politician Andrew Mitchell are among the names linked to either Ingenious funds Inside Track or Ingenious Film Partners.

The case is expected to last well into December. It will then take months for a decision to be handed down and whichever side loses is likely to appeal. According to the “Agreed Hearing Timetable” issued in advance of the trial, those being called will include Ingenious founder and CEO Patrick McKenna [pictured] and Ingenious Director Duncan Reid as well as such “expert witnesses” as Jonathan Olsberg and Angus Finney.

First images from Neill Blomkamp’s CHAPPiE leak online

27 October 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neill Blomkamp garnered a ton of goodwill (and an Oscar nomination for Best Picture) with his 2009 debut District 9, but his 2013 follow-up, Elysium, didn’t quite live up to its predecessor. Luckily, the director has more original ideas up his sleeve, and has a futuristic comedy called CHAPPiE slated for release in 2015.

The film hits theaters in five months, but no marketing has taken place thus far. That appears to be changing, though, as some new images that presumably come from CHAPPiE‘s first trailer have found their way online…

Chappie tells the story of a gifted adopted son in a strange, dysfunctional family, who happens to be a robot. The film is set for release on March 6th 2015 with Blomkamp directing a cast that includes Hugh Jackman (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Sigourney Weaver (Avatar), Sharlto Copley (Elysium), Dev Patel (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Jose Pablo Cantillo »
