The Snowman's Rebecca Ferguson talks making a murder mystery in the cold

The Snowman's Rebecca Ferguson talks making a murder mystery in the cold The Snowman's Rebecca Ferguson talks making a murder mystery in the cold Bob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine10/18/2017 10:15:00 Am

Rebecca Ferguson is used to living between two worlds, so she felt right at home making the gory mystery The Snowman.

“It’s by a studio from America and an incredible Swedish director,” Ferguson says over the phone from London. The 34-year-old actor’s mom was English but her dad was Swedish and Ferguson, whose full name is Rebecca Louisa Ferguson Sundström, was born and raised in Stockholm.

“I got to work with Michael Fassbender, run around in deep snow in Norway — which, by the way, if you’ve never been, you should go. It is breathtakingly beautiful up there!”

A beautiful locale for an ugly tale.

It’s hard to avoid horrific violence in any story written by Jo Nesbø, »

Remarkable Video Explains ‘How David Fincher Hijacks Your Eyes’

18 October 2017 7:59 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

David Fincher, is one of the most visually arresting filmmakers working on the planet today. With films like Seven, Fight Club, Alien 3, Zodiac and the new Netflix TV series Mindhunter amongst his glowing resume, all share one particular thing, and like the creator of the following video describes, one couldn’t quite understand why his films grab your attention so much – until now.

It all seems to be down to one very simple thing, which ‘Nerdwriter1’ describes in his equally absorbing video tutorial. It’s all down to the camera moves employed in all of his films.

If you were to go back and check out any of Fincher’s work – from Gone Girl to the 2011 remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – you’ll find one thing that is the same in all of them – a simple camera move. With the use of a title, a tracking shot, »

David Fincher Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

17 October 2017 11:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“There’s a difference between being obsessed and being motivated,” Mark Zuckerberg blithely insists during the opening moments of “The Social Network.” But the thing about the characters in a David Fincher movie is that they never seem to know what that difference is. In fact, the same might be true of David Fincher himself. And thank God for that, because if the Denver native had any idea where to draw the line between determination and dementedness he probably would have left Hollywood after being fired off his first Hollywood feature. Three times.

Ever since he transitioned from visionary music video director to features, Fincher has established himself as one of the most idiosyncratic and indispensable voices of mainstream American cinema. Often described as “the next Kubrick” (even while Kubrick was still alive), Fincher is an unyielding perfectionist working within a deeply imperfect system. From “The Game” and “Fight Club »

Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Drop Creepy Cover of ‘Halloween’ Theme

12 October 2017 9:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To celebrate the Oct. 20 release of horror film auteur John Carpenter’s anthology of newly recorded themes from his films, Nine Inch NailsTrent Reznor and Atticus Ross have released a new version of the theme from Carpenter’s iconic 1978 film “Halloween.” The remainder of the tracks on the album were recorded by Carpenter — who directed and wrote the music for films including “The Fog,” “Escape From New York” and “Assault on Precinct 17.”

Reznor says,  “I clearly remember my friends and I at 13 years old conning our parents into letting us see ‘Halloween’ when it came out in 1978. We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the shit genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads. John Carpenter, it’s your fault that I turned out the way I did.”

Speaking about the new version, John Carpenter says, “Moody and dark, Trent Reznor and [link »

The Snowman review

11 October 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Fassbender stars in the adaptation of Jo Nesbo's best-selling thriller, The Snowman. A satisfying mystery for the autumn? Well...

“I apologise for Oslo’s low murder rate,” says a police chief when boozy detective Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender) complains about a lack of satisfying mysteries to solven one bitter winter morning. Fortunately for Hole, the renewed activity of an elusive serial killer soon gives him a case to wrap his big brain around. Unfortunately, the killer also has a macabre interest in Hole’s personal life.

Seemingly triggered by snowfall, a serial killer is kidnapping women across Norway’s cities, leaving their dismembered bodies to be found lying face down in a drift several days later. The killer’s calling card: a snowman in the victim’s front garden, usually oriented to face the house. To crack the case, Hole joins forces with new recruit Katrine Bratt (Rebecca Ferguson »

Rooney Mara’s Upset She Wasn’t Asked Back For The Girl In The Spider’s Web

5 October 2017 9:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series has had a bit of a bumpy ride over on this side of the pond. Though the trilogy was a huge hit overseas when it was adapted for the big screen, it didn’t find the same success back in 2011 when David Fincher remade it.

As you surely know by now, the movie under-performed at the box office and the follow-up (at that time thought to be The Girl Who Played with Fire) spiralled down into development hell. Further problems behind the scenes with the various filmmakers and producers complicated the process even more and all hope seemed to be lost for a sequel.

Fast-forward to several months ago, when we learned that Sony had scrapped Played With Fire and instead chose to reboot the property, with director Fede Alvarez in charge and the fourth installment in the book series, The Girl in the Spider’s Web, »

Hillary Clinton’s Craziest Pop Culture References in ‘What Happened’: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Veep,’ and More

22 September 2017 2:21 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

You can tell a lot about a person by the television they watch and the books they read — even while they reveal their theories as to why they lost a Presidential election.

Clinton’s new memoir, “What Happened,” chronicling her experiences surrounding the 2016 election, is surprisingly candid on a number of levels. For example, regarding her coping mechanisms following the loss of the election, “It wasn’t all yoga and breathing: I also drank my share of chardonnay.”

But even more fascinating are the ways in which she invokes current pop culture. Some of the references feel more forced than others. Some of them are truly bonkers.

This is not a complete list of every reference made, as we omitted some of the religious, spiritual, and historical texts upon which she drew to make her points. Instead, here is all the evidence you need that the Clintons know their way around a TV remote, »

It's Official: Rooney Mara Is Out as Lisbeth Salander and Claire Foy Is In

21 September 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you thought the American film adaptations of Stieg Larsson's addicting novels (known as the Millennium series) were long dead, think again. According to Deadline, The Crown's Claire Foy is the latest actress to take on the role of Lisbeth Salander, the sulky protagonist of the gripping mystery stories. But there's a catch: Foy is actually set to star in the film adaptation of The Girl in the Spider's Web, the fourth novel in the Millennium series that was written by David Lagercrantz rather than Larsson. If you're confused about the move, just know that this has pretty much nothing to do with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which hit theaters in 2011 (other than the recurring characters). Obviously, Rooney Mara is no longer our dark and twisty heroine, and additionally, visionary director David Fincher is not on board either. Instead, Don't Breathe director Fede Alvarez has signed on. »

Yes, Alexander Skarsgard Has an Accent, You Just Have to Listen Carefully

19 September 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Alexander Skarsgard looked all kinds of fine when he attended the Emmy Awards on Sunday night. Despite sporting that much-debated-about new mustache, the actor had one hell of a night. He took home the award for outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie for his role in Big Little Lies, shared a smooch with costar Nicole Kidman (in front of Keith Urban!), and had his mom on his arm as his date. But during his cute acceptance speech, we couldn't help but wonder what the deal is with his accent. Related24 Pictures That Will Remind You Just How Handsome Alexander Skarsgard Is Alexander was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden, and is the son of famous actor Stellan Skarsgard (The Glass House, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Thor). If you've seen one of his dad's movies, you've probably noticed that Stellan has a very strong Swedish accent. »
