'The Huntsman' Adds Rob Brydon & Two Female Dwarves This Time

18 March 2015 8:02 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The cast of The Huntsman, the prequel to the 2012 fantasy Snow White and the Huntsman, already has a solid cast. Chris Hemsworth is reprising his title role, with Charlize Theron back as Ravenna and newcomers Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain coming aboard. And while all the dwarves from the first film aren't back, Nick Frost is at least back as Nion. Now some more dwarves are entering the mix as THR reports The Trip star Rob Brydon, Quartet actress Sheridan Smith and The Iron Lady supporting star Alexandra Roach have all taken roles as the gruff ensemble of dwarves this time. Yeah, there's some female dwarves! As of now, there aren't a lot of specifics on the story, but the prequel takes place before Snow White ever crosses paths with Ravenna and will follow the huntsman Eric as he is sent on a quest to find the stolen magic mirror, »

'The Huntsman' Casts 2 Female Dwarfs

18 March 2015 5:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than a month after actor Nick Frost signed on to reprise his Snow White and the Huntsman dwarf role Nion in Universal Pictures' sequel The Huntsman, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith have signed on to play three new dwarfs. We reported in January that the sequel will only feature two dwarfs, but it seems Universal has reconsidered that stance. No details were given regarding these new characters, but this is the first time female dwarfs are being introduced into the fairy tale storyline.

In Snow White and the Huntsman, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the seven dwarfs. Our report from January revealed that Toby Jones could not come to terms with the studio to reprise his role, while Eddie Marsan had scheduling complications with the Showtime series Ray Donovan. It isn't known why the others »

The Dream of a Thing: Straub’s "Kommunisten"

17 March 2015 5:02 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

[...] and also, indeed more, perhaps in those who were in no way exceptional and have left no trace, there was something that went beyond the struggle against Nazism, something – be it only for a moment, the last one – that contributed, whether they knew it or not, to the “dream of a thing” which men have had “for so long,” to the enormous dream of men.These words of Franco Fortini, spoken in Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub’s Fortini/Cani (1978), are a kind of summation of one of the major themes of their work. From one film to the next, they return to this “dream of a thing”: the day Camille dreams of in Eyes Do Not Want to Close At all Times (1969) when “Rome will allow herself to choose in her turn,” human’s desire to commune with the gods in From the Cloud to the Resistance (1979), the “new duties, »

Berlin Film Review: ‘45 Years’

6 February 2015 1:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following his youthful gay-themed films “Greek Pete” and “Weekend,” and HBO’s “Looking,” British writer-director Andrew Haigh ventures onto fresh ground with his maturely assured third feature, “45 Years.” Depicting a retired rural Norfolk couple questioning their relationship in the run-up to their titular wedding anniversary, this admirable Berlin competition entry will inevitably draw comparisons, at least for its somewhat privileged milieu, with the English middle-class dramas of Joanna Hogg (“Archipelago”). And by arriving so soon after Guy Myhill’s Venice entry “The Goob” and Martin Radich’s Rotterdam premiere “Norfolk,” it also completes a surely coincidental trilogy of current British indie features set in England’s flattest county.

While British stories featuring characters of retirement age, such as “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” and “Quartet,” are resonating with large audiences at home and abroad, “45 Years” shirks many of the pandering pleasures that have helped define the genre. And lacking any »
