Music Box Have a Wandering Eye For Fontaine’s “Gemma Bovery”

18 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After shoring up in Toronto with their Cannes pick-ups in Alleluia and Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem, the Music Box Films folks have landed their Tiff item. In what should be a significant month of post Tiff month of deal announcements, Music Box’s William Schopf has, according to Variety, made his first item pick-up (we feel that there’ll be more in the pipeline) in Anne Fontaine’s Gemma Bovery. Starring another Gemma in Gemma Arterton, the title had the odd distinction of being included at the fest alongside Sophie Barthes’ Madame Bovery. Fontaine’s film as an outside chance at picking up France’s Foreign Oscar nom, and though the trade doesn’t mention it, we expect a 2015 release.

Go Batty For A Brand New Clip From ‘Dracula Untold’

15 September 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We all wait in anticipation for the Gary Shore directed, and Luke Evans starring Dracula Untold, which heads to cinemas on the 3rd of October. The film tells the story of the origins of the legendary Dracula, played here by Fast And Furious 6 star Evans. While we absolutely bloody love Mr. Evans and his work in the brilliant ‘Hobbit’ movies, and even Tamara Drewe, we’re a little hesitant about this as the history of bringing of old monster movies to modern audiences haven’t been that successful (we’re thinking Van Helsing, the recent I, Frankenstein rubbish).

Dominic Cooper, Sarah Gadon and Charles Dance also star in Dracula Untold, so big thumbs up in terms of casting…

Watch a brand new clip from the film below.

Sundance London 2014: ‘The Voices’ a sweet bloodbath about lunacy and loneliness

25 April 2014 7:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ryan Reynolds in Marjane Satrapi’s “The Voices

The Voices Written by Michael R. Perry Directed by Marjane Satrapi USA, 2014   From the director of Persepolis comes The Voices, an odd film that is sure to repel some viewers with its bloodthirsty darkness but draw others in with its winning protagonist who is lovable, thoughtful and incidentally, a serial killer. It treats blood spatter flippantly while completely sympathizing with the lonely man with psychopathic tendencies who is responsible for it. The best twist on identifying with a serial killer’s point of view (the likes of which is seen in Hitchcock’s Frenzy and Michael Powell’s Peeping Tom) is that Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) isn’t a bad guy at all. The film is non-judgmental of this well-meaning man, reveling in the spontaneity of his decisions and the potential friendship he sees in others that they often fail to fully reciprocate. »

Philomena Blu-Ray Review

22 April 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Philomena is as surprising in its existence as it is in its ability to transform a story that ought to be cliche syrup into something real and moving. The film’s ability to deliver honest emotion may be more surprising, given the synopsis, but the existence question may need some explanation.

Steve Coogan, of Alan Partridge and other comedic efforts fame, isn’t a name you immediately associate with not only starring in a venture like this, but also co-writing it and becoming something of a driving force behind the production. Moreover, it’s rare to get anyone behind a film that is taking a pretty serious shot at the Catholic Church, much less big names like Judi Dench and Stephen Frears. And, speaking of Stephen Frears, though he manages a lot of variety in his films, ranging from Dangerous Liasions, and Liam, to High Fidelity, and Tamara Drewe, a biopic exploration of hope, »

Cate Blanchett Goes On "The Dig"

Cate Blanchett is in talks to star in Susanne Bier's new drama "The Dig".

Adapted from John Preston’s novel, the story deals with one of Britain's most famous archaeological finds - the Sutton Hoo burial grounds.

The film explores the characters behind the excavation in 1938 and 1939 which uncovered sixth and seventh century riches included a 27-metre ship just as the second World War was getting under way.

Blanchett would play amateur archaeologist Edith Pretty, one of the driving forces behind the excavation who was also coming to terms with the recent death of her husband at the time.

Moira Buffini ("Tamara Drewe," "Byzantium") penned the script and filming aims to begin later this year.

Susanne Bier doesn't stop. Already in post-production on "A Second Chance" starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (first look here), and with "Serena" forever dangling over her head as that completed but still somewhat shelved Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Lawrence joint, the director is already plowing ahead on new a movie, one that is aiming to shoot this fall, with a pretty big star attached. Screen Daily reports that two-time Oscar winner Cate Blachett is in talks to star in "The Dig." Penned by Moira Buffini ("Tamara Drewe," "Byzantium") and based on the novel by John Preston, the story follows amateur archaeologist Edith Pretty, who with the onset of World War II, leads a team in excavating the English site of Sutton Hoo, a cemetery site from the 6th and 7th century, with untold artifacts inside, including a full-blown ship used in a burial. The film is said to be in the vein of "The Remains Of The Day, »

John C. Reilly Joins Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Léa Seydoux In Yorgos Lanthimos’ 'The Lobster'

31 March 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Fuck, pardon my French, this cast rules. You should know and love Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos. He directed “Dogtooth” and “Alps” and quickly landed as a Cannes favorite and one-to-watch shortly thereafter. In case you’ve forgotten, he’s making his English-Language debut, it’s called “The Lobster” and it already features the star-studded cast of Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Léa SeydouxOlivia Colman, Ariane Labed (“Alps”) and Angeliki Papoulia (“Dogtooth”).  Today, four more actors were announced as additions to the cast including John C.Reilly, Scottish actress Ashley Jensen, Michael Smiley (perhaps best remembered for "A Field in England," "Kill List" and "The World's End") and Jessica Barden (“Tamara Drewe”). The synopsis is pretty awesome too: a love story set in the near future where single people, according to the rules of The City, are arrested and transferred to The Hotel. There they are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. »

Cannes Prospects: ‘Foxcatcher,’ Inarritu’s ‘Birdman’ Likely Headed to the Croisette

26 March 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A belated festival premiere for Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” and a powerhouse showing for British filmmakers including Mike Leigh and Ken Loach — plus appearances by other usual suspects such as David Cronenberg, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Nuri Bilge Ceylan and the Dardenne brothers — are among the strong possibilities hovering over the lineup of the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival.

In recent years, festival topper Thierry Fremaux and his selection committee have tended to push their final decisions to the very last minute under a nearly impenetrable veil of secrecy, defying the intense media scrutiny and endless speculation that always swirl around the Cannes lineup at this time of year. Although anything could change between now and April 17, when the official selection is unveiled — there are still enough hotly anticipated titles in the mix to warrant some educated guesswork about what is shaping up to be a promisingly diverse slate of auteurs. »

Roger Allam, actor – portrait of the artist

12 March 2014 5:37 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

'My beloved helped me shave my entire body once a week with a beard trimmer'

What first drew you to acting?

I went to this very odd school, Christ's Hospital – like Eton for poor boys. I remember seeing a school production of The Birthday Party and finding its environment strangely menacing and hostile, rather like school. Then I saw Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead at the Old Vic, and found it adult and thrilling. That's what really caught me.

What was your big breakthrough?

I don't think I've ever had one.

You've had parts in musicals, TV and film. Should an actor always be open to new things?

Yes. There's a particularly British way of going about things that I rather like, which is very different to the American way. It comes out of the amateur rep tradition of actors thinking: "Well, I'm only 26, but I'll put on a »
