Christina Ricci is 2014's Inspiring Teacher in 'Around the Block' Trailer

9 July 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For whatever reason, every two or three years there's another movie made about a teacher entering a rundown school with lost students who just need to be inspired in order to unlock their full potential and over come the bad hand life has dealt them. And this is the year we get another one with Christina Ricci (Black Snake Moan) starring in Around the Block as an American teacher moving to a troubled inner-city school in Sydney, Australia. If you've ever seen any of these movies, then you know what to expect, but the kids have Australian accents this time, so that's different. Maybe Ricci will make this interesting? Watch? Here's the first trailer for Sarah Spillane's Around the Block from Cinedigm: Around the Block is written and directed by Australian filmmaker Sarah Spillane, inspired by the filmmaker's personal experiences, and marking her feature directorial debut. Christina Ricci (Black Snake Moan, »

Scott Atkins and Dolph Lundgren Team up to Battle the “Shocate” Creature in Legendary, Hitting DVD/VOD July 29th!

23 June 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Being a product of the ’80s, very few people make me as excited as Dolph Lundgren does. I grew up with I Come In Peace, The Punisher, Showdown In Little Tokyo, and every other film he was in. Yes, his recent output might be less than stellar, but it would be a lie if I said I wouldn’t watch the Dolph stand in front of a camera and make fart noises for an hour. Add up and coming action star Scott Adkins, The Expendables 2, Ninja II)  to the mix, and you’ve got what I think looks like a fun as hell, entertaining ride.  Two badasses, one monster,..and a trailer that has me on board. What do you friend fiends think? Will you be picking this one up, when it hits DVD/VOD/Pay-Per-View on July 29th, via Lionsgate?

Robert Pattinson's The Rover flops at Us box office

23 June 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Pattinson's latest movie The Rover has flopped at the Us box office on its first weekend on major release.

The post-apocalyptic Western, directed by Animal Kingdom's David Michod and co-starring Guy Pearce, earned just $500,000 (£293,000) on release last weekend in the States.

After expanding from a limited release in 5 theatres to 599, the film saw its per-screen average tumble from $13,860 ( £8,150) to $835 (£490).

The Rover's Us distributor A24 said of the film's performance: "David Michod made an excellent film that received very strong reviews for its unique filmmaking and wonderful performances from Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson.

"Unfortunately we were unable to find a broader audience this weekend, but have no doubt that the film will gain fans as we continue to push it out in the weeks and months ahead."

Pattinson has struggled to replicate his Twilight box office success in his post-Edward Cullen career.

Indie Box Office Preview: Will Robert Pattinson Finally Get An Indie Hit With 'The Rover'?

13 June 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Outside of the "Twilight" films, Robert Pattinson has been getting some consistent and impressive work from independent filmmakers, from David Cronenberg to Werner Herzog. Yet he's so far been unable to be a box office draw in that context, with his last two indies -- "Cosmopolis" and "Bel  Ami" -- failing to even gross $1 million. Will David Michod's well-reviewed "The Rover" change that this weekend? Here's our prediction for that and four other openers: Read More: Robert Pattinson on Singing Keri Hilson in 'The Rover' and How He Chooses His Projects Post-'Twilight' A Coffee In Berlin (Music Box Films) Director:  Jan Ole Gerster Cast: Tom Schilling, Katharina Schüttler, Justus von Dohnányi, Andreas Schröders Criticwire Average: 7 critics gave it a B average Where It's Screening: At the Sunshine in New York.

Robert Pattinson Talks The Rover in Behind-the-Scenes Video (See!)

10 June 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Robert Pattinson provides some unique perspective on his character in a new behind-the-scenes video for his latest film “The Rover.” Co-star Guy Pearce and Director David Michod also provide some commentary. Rob’s character Reynolds, or Rey for short, is one of the more complex and nuanced that he’s played in any film so far. It’s also against character compared with his previous films from “Twilight,” “Bel Ami” and “Remember Me” to “Water for Elephants.” ...Read More »

Cannes: Robert Pattinson Talks Up New Project, Fest Films (Exclusive)

18 May 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cannes audiences have not one but two chances to swoon over Robert Pattinson.

The actor known for his role as Edward Cullen in the blockbuster vampire-franchise “Twilight” arrived on the Croisette in need of a hit. And may in fact leave the festival with new blood coursing through his career.

Pattinson earned some of his best reviews yet for “The Rover,” the Australian action film directed by David Michod that opened out-of-competition on Sunday night. He also had strong buzz going into today’s competition debut of “Maps to the Stars,” a drama directed by David Cronenberg.

“He’s incredibly respectful,” Pattinson told Variety, saying he would love to collaborate with Cronenberg again. The two first worked together on 2012’s “Cosmopolis,” which underperformed at the U.S. box office. His other post-“Twilight” misfires include 2012’s “Bel Ami” and 2010’s “Remember Me.”

Four Weddings and a Funeral anniversary: What happened to the cast?

15 May 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Has it really been 20 years? We hadn't noticed. Prepare to feel old, because this week romantic comedy classic Four Weddings and a Funeral celebrates a landmark anniversary.

The Richard Curtis-penned film delivered exactly what its title promised and so much more. It was funny, charming and packed with brilliant performances from a stellar Brit cast. Without it Hugh Grant would never have hit the Hollywood A-list and Wet Wet Wet wouldn't have spent what felt like an eternity at the top of the UK singles chart.

But what are the cast up to two decades on? We take a look at the key players then and now below...

Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant was a respected supporting actor in the Brit film industry prior to Four Weddings thanks to roles in Remains of the Day and Sirens. Things changed overnight after his role as the ever-so-British and lovelorn Charles.

Cannes: Robert Pattinson vs. Kristen Stewart in Battle of ‘Twilight’ Stars

14 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ever since the lineup of the Cannes Film Festival was announced last month, gossip sites have been salivating over an unlikely scenario: a red carpet run-in between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The “Twilight” co-stars and former off-screen couple both will be in attendance, although they likely won’t be posing for photographs together.

Pattinson arrives on the Croisette with a pair of anticipated films: the Hollywood-set drama “Maps to the Stars,” a competition title from his “Cosmopolis” director David Cronenberg; and “The Rover,” a midnight-screening thriller set in a futuristic Australian Outback, and helmed by “Animal Kingdom’s” David Michod.

Stewart appears as a supporting character in the Olivier Assayas drama “Clouds of Sils Maria” (playing in competition); has a market screening of “Camp X-Ray,” about a guard at Guantanamo Bay who strikes an unexpected friendship with a prisoner; and is attached to the project “Equals,” a sci-fi love »

Saddam Capture Thriller to Look for New Lead After Busy Pattinson Leaves Project

28 April 2014 7:21 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Robert Pattinson out of ‘Mission: Blacklist’ movie (photo: Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson in ‘Life’) Robert Pattinson and Mission: Blacklist have parted ways. Pattinson, whose name had been attached to the project for two years — since Cannes 2012 — has reportedly dropped out due to scheduling issues. Now, what could those issues be? Well, Robert Pattinson, best known (at least for the time being) as the vampire Edward Cullen in the immensely popular Twilight movie franchise, has no less than two movies opening at Cannes 2014: David Michôd’s thriller The Rover, co-starring Guy Pearce, which will be shown as one of Cannes’ Midnight Screenings, and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, also featuring Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, and Carrie Fisher, and which is in the running for the Palme d’Or. There’s more: Robert Pattinson has recently completed work on Anton Corbijn’s Life, with Pattinson as photographer Dennis Stock, »

Nymphomaniac review: behold the alien Woman

20 March 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A salacious yet also tedious portrayal of a woman who would appear to confirm all the nastiest stereotypes about women. Completely unfun, unpleasant, unerotic, and unenlightening. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of Lars von Trier

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

In a cinematic environment in which women were depicted, overall, as fully rounded human beings with a wide range of sexual expression available to them without judgment or disapproval, Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac would still be a disgusting, degrading portrait of a terrible person that is completely unfun, unpleasant, unerotic, and unenlightening. But in the cinematic environment we actually have, it is a salacious yet also tedious portrayal of a woman who would appear to confirm all the nastiest stereotypes about women: that they sexually prey upon and sexually manipulate men purely for the power rush of it, »

The Invisible Woman review: sometimes it’s hard to be a woman

6 February 2014 4:55 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

The story of Charles Dickens and his secret mistress is no romance, and no modest costume drama, either. It’s a tale of women being practical because they had to be. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast, love Dickens

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

His novels were full of life, and so was Charles Dickens himself… though not always in the most socially acceptable ways. Not for his restrictive Victorian times, and not necessarily in ways that would considered cool today, either. Dickens had a mistress for the last 12 years of his life, for instance, a fact dug up by biographer Claire Tomalin for her book The Invisible Woman, a relationship all but erased from history at the time in order to hide the scandal of it. Fittingly, then, this adaptation »

Kristin Scott Thomas Partly Retires

4 February 2014 2:18 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Kristin Scott Thomas, one of film's most acclaimed and prolific actresses, says that she's essentially retiring from screen acting after three decades and sixty five films.

In a lengthy interview with The Guardian, the 53-year-old actress says this decision came about suddenly in September: "I just suddenly thought, I cannot cope with another film. 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."

She goes on to say: "The kinds of films that I do are usually quite rapidly put together, and it always seems to be a little bit of a shambles. I like filming, but what I don't like is having to rearrange things and rewrite scenes. I just can't be bothered. I'm often asked to do something because I'm going to »
