The Bad Education Movie set for release in August, first poster arrives online

29 June 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jack Whitehall’s Alfi Wickers is heading to the big screen this summer for The Bad Education Movie, and Entertainment Film Distributors has announced today that the feature version of the hit British sitcom is set to arrive in UK cinemas on Friday August 21st. Here’s the official poster…

Alfie Wickers is probably the worst teacher to (dis)grace the English education system, but no one cares about their pupils quite as much as Alfie does. Having completed their GCSEs, Alfie is keen for his class to join him on one last hurrah and what follows is a coming of age story like no other, the best school trip ever!

The Bad Education Movie sees Whitehall reuniting with Harry Enfield (Kevin & Perry Go Large), Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey), Sarah Solemani (Him & Her) and his class of pupils Ethan Lawrence, Layton Williams, Nikki Runeckles, Kae Alexander, Weruche Opia, Jack Binstead and Charlie Wernham, »

Excitement Is Just A Little "Beyond The Reach"

26 June 2015 9:34 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

In Beyond the Reach, Jeremy Irvine (best known for playing the lead role in War Horse) stars as Ben, a young tracker who has taken on the “family business” of serving as the one-man search and rescue operation of a small town on the borders of the unforgiving Mojave Desert. Rather than join his girlfriend, Laina (Hannah Mangan Lawrence) in Denver where she is starting college on a swim team scholarship, Ben remains behind--and is soon enlisted by the local sheriff to take a brash big-game hunter named John Madec out into the desert to hunt bighorn sheep. Unfortunately for Ben, he doesn’t immediately realize how dangerous of a predator Madec truly is.

Film Rights to Michael Crichton’s Micro Acquired by DreamWorks Studios

26 June 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From The Andromeda Strain to Jurassic Park to Prey and beyond, the late Michael Crichton offered readers numerous gateways to intelligent escapism on the printed page. Published posthumously, 2011's Micro is no exception. DreamWorks Studios seems to agree, as the company has picked up the film rights to the thriller.

Press Release: "Los Angeles--(Business Wire)--DreamWorks Studios has acquired the film rights to the Michael Crichton novel, “Micro,” it was announced today by Michael Wright, CEO of DreamWorks Studios. Frank Marshall is on board to produce, with Sherri Crichton and Laurent Bouzereau set as executive producers for CrichtonSun LLC.

The high-concept thriller follows a group of graduate students lured to Hawaii to work for a mysterious biotech company—only to find themselves miniaturized and cast out into the rain forest, with nothing but their scientific expertise and wits to protect them.

"Micro" was unfinished when Michael Crichton passed »

Max – The Review

25 June 2015 7:18 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Max is an Afghanistan War-set battlefield adventure and a look at the unbreakable bond between a Marine and his military working dog ……. for about the first ten minutes! What’s left for another long hour and a half, despite some moments of bravura and lazy tugs at the heart-strings, is a poorly-written, Texas-set melodrama that I can’t recommend. The end credits for Max play over vintage photos of dogs in combat, from the Civil War to Wwi and WWII to Iraq. Dogs have been trained by the military as scouts, sentries and trackers for centuries and I wish that was the story that the producers of Max had tackled. A kind of canine War Horse might have made for a stirring adventure. On the surface, Max is an old fashioned throwback to more innocent family fare which may seem like a good antidote to the violent and defeatist thrillers »

Benedict Cumberbatch's 'Hamlet' in Event Cinema first

23 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Shakespeare adaptation will become the first ever live 4K broadcast to multiple cinemas under Sony, Vue and Nt Live partnership.

National Theatre Live, Vue Entertainment and Sony Digital Cinema 4K have unveiled the next two Nt Live productions to be captured in Sony 4K.

On Oct 15, Lyndsey Turner’s Hamlet, starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role, will become the world’s first ever multi-site live 4K transmission in selected Vue cinemas across the UK. Hamlet is already the fastest-selling show in London’s theatre history.

Prior to Hamlet, Simon Godwin’s 18th Century comedy The Beaux’ Stratagem will be shot in Sony 4K and delivered for exclusive ‘encore’ screenings across Vue’s 84-site estate in September, after the show’s Nt Live broadcast on Sept 3.

Testament of Youth Is a Necessary Reminder of the Impact and Horror of War

5 June 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Should you ever be tempted to wax nostalgic for an age in which wars were fought according to the laws of cause and effect and for reasons that may confidently be labeled “rational,” pick up Vera Brittain’s World War I memoir Testament of Youth or steel yourself for James Kent’s mournful, very fine new film starring Alicia Vikander as Brittain. The “Great War” made so little sense relative to its cost in lives that it gave birth to a new era in literature and art and a new breed of tragedy; after this, nothing would be expected to happen according to divine logic. Despite a centennial and such recent works as War Horse, the horror of the war has faded, at least on this side of the Atlantic. It’s time for the testament of Brittain and the Brits to be reheard.The beginning of Testament of Youth »

2015 Tony Award Predictions, Will it be 'Fun Home' or 'An American in Paris'c

5 June 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Here is something a bit different for Rope of Silicon. Sure, we have award predictions for the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes, but that makes sense, considering this is site is 95% about movies. But there are plenty of other stories out there being told in theaters that get plenty of respect. Except these are stories performed live right in front of your face. So, I took it upon myself to comb through the absurd amount of categories of the Tony Awards, which is this Sunday June 7, to give you my predictions on what will win. I am doing this not just because it is fun to predict things and hope I get them all right, though that is certainly part of it, but I also want to shed light on these projects that a lot of people don't know about. Film and television people often have on blinders when »

Kit Harington on ‘Testament of Youth,’ Challenges of ‘Game of Thrones’

5 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kit Harington can’t seem to stay out of war. He landed the starring role of Albert in “War Horse” while still in his final year of school at Britain’s Central School of Speech and Drama in 2008 when he landed the coveted role of Albert in the National Theatre’s production of “War Horse,” an experience he says “still stands as the biggest moment of my career.” Of course, he regularly goes into battle as Jon Snow in HBO’s hit “Game of Thrones,” such as this week’s epic battle at Hardhome. And now he can be seen on the big screen in “Testament of Youth,” an adaptation of Vera Brittain’s beloved memoir set during World War I.

In the film, directed by James Kent and hitting American theaters this week, Harrington stars opposite Alicia Vikander as Brittain as Roland Leighton, her fiancé. Leighton would go on »

Tonys: 9 Close Contests in Sunday Night's Awards

4 June 2015 8:49 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

While even the clearest frontrunners retain some degree of uncertainty until they get their hands on the gold, it's hard to find a prognosticator in town who hasn't already decreed Simon Stephens' The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time the winner of this year's Tony Award for best play. Likewise, nobody is betting against Marianne Elliott, a previous directing winner for War Horse, to notch up a repeat victory for her imaginative staging of Curious Incident. That hyper-kinetic jolt of visceral theatrical storytelling places us inside the dizzying thought process of a 15-year-old boy with

See the First Poster for Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies' with Tom Hanks

4 June 2015 1:29 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In the shadow of war, one man showed the world what we stand for. And that is? We'll find out in October, I suppose. Disney has debuted the first official poster for Steven Spielberg's latest film Bridge of Spies, starring Tom Hanks as an undercover CIA agent during the Cold War. It's a very basic, very stark poster, with Tom Hanks' face front and center flanked by the American flag and Soviet symbol. Yes, he's stuck in the middle, we get it. That's all there is though, no other context or imagery. Kind of weird. Anyway, I hope this means we'll see a trailer soon because the footage for this better be a heck of a lot better than the poster. Here's the first official poster for Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies, found via IMPAwards. Your thoughts? Bridge of Spies, originally titled St. James Place, is directed »

Everything we know so far about the Fantastic Four reboot: Spoilers, trailer and latest rumours

25 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

20th Century Fox's new Fantastic Four is sneaking up on us with surprising stealth. Other than the odd controversy, news on the film from Chronicle director Josh Trank has been relatively light.

So what do we know about the movie, other than it surely has to improve on its Jessica Alba and Chris Evans-starring predecessors? Read on to find out:

Fantastic Four will arrive in UK cinemas on August 6 and in the Us on August 7.

We've got a whole new take on Marvel's First Family

In case it wasn't clear from the fresh faces of the cast (and the uniformly bad memories of the 2005 and 2007 films), this movie will reboot the franchise based on Marvel Comics' very first comic book series.

'Love Actually' Director Richard Curtis to Pen Bee Gees Biopic

22 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Richard Curtis, the screenwriter behind "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Mr. Bean," "Bridget Jones' Diary," and "War Horse," will script a biopic of Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb—the brothers who formed the Bee Gees in 1958—according to a report by The Tracking Board. Barry Gibb, the lone surviving member of the group, and MGM's Gary Barber are set to produce. Read More: "Review: New Collection Celebrates 25 Years of 'Mr. Bean,' Comic Outlaw" Born to English parents and raised primarily in Australia, The Bee Gees achieved international fame in not one but two distinct periods in music history, first as a Beatles-inspired pop trio and later as mainstays of disco. Their iconic soundtrack to 1977's "Saturday Night Fever," starring John Travolta, was the best-selling album of all time until it was supplanted by Michael Jackson's "Thriller," and the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame notes that »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Low key debut for Deadline Gallipoli

Sam Worthington in Deadline Gallipoli.

.

Despite massive promotion and widespread critical acclaim, the premiere of Deadline Gallipoli didn.t draw a big audience on Foxtel but the figures for the full week will be a far more accurate measurement.

The 8.30 pm Sunday screening on showcase had 71,000 viewers in the five metropolitan capitals, according to OzTam.

The WW1 drama produced by Matchbox Pictures and Sam Worthington and John Schwarz.s Full Clip ranked just outside the top 20 shows on pay-tv, behind multiple episodes of The Simpsons.

However the producers and Foxtel rate the opening as a solid number and are confident the overall figures will build through the week with time-shifting and catch--up viewing.

.Deadline Gallipoli is one of the finest drama series that Australia has ever produced," Matchbox Pictures MD Chris Oliver-Taylor tells If. "It showcases a defining moment in Australia.s modern history.

Why Does Michael Douglas Want to Kill This Poor, Shirtless Hunk?

16 April 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In his new movie Beyond the Reach, Michael Douglas plays a high-powered businessman who drags a hot, innocent twink young tour guide into the Mojave Desert to help him hunt big game. Alas, the excursion takes a wrong turn when Douglas aims for an animal and ends up killing another human; the only witness to the crime is that poor twink, and now he's the hunted one, running across the desert as Douglas follows in hot pursuit (as you'll see in this exclusive clip from the movie). The upside? At least Douglas makes the kid take off all his clothes before the chase commences. Yes, that's supposed to slow him down by exposing him to the scalding-hot desert sun, but when the tour guide is played by the awfully gorgeous Jeremy Irvine (best known for Steven Spielberg's War Horse), we doubt that any audience members will protest his movie-spanning shirtlessness. »

Roland Emmerich's 'Stonewall' is arriving just in time for awards season

25 March 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Roland Emmerich is entering the awards season fray once more.  The filmmaker behind such blockbusters as "The Day After Tomorrow" and "Independence Day" attempted to make a smaller, more serious film with 2011's "Anonymous."  That Shakespearean era tale was touted as a possible awards player before it debuted at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival to mostly negative reviews.  Any hopes for prestige recognition were quickly dashed. Now, after segueing into more familiar territory with "White House Down," Emmerich is returning with a slightly more personal tale, "Stonewall." Roadside Attractions announced today it had acquired the period drama for a release later this Fall (which pretty much means at least a Toronto debut).  "Stonewall" is a fictional drama set around the real events that took place at the Stonewall Inn in New York City during 1969.  The Stonewall Riots found the gay community fighting back in a series of violent protests after »

9 actors who have left Downton Abbey for better... or worse

5 March 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

For many actors, Downton Abbey was their first big break in television.

But not everyone can be a Lord Grantham or a Carson. For many - whether they chose to leave or were written out - their fortunes changed after exiting the ITV drama.

So after the news that Dan Stevens has joined Beauty and the Beast, Digital Spy looks at the careers (so far!) of 9 actors who have bowed out of Highclere Castle...

1. Ed Speleers

After starring in series three, four and five of Downton, Ed Speleers left Jimmy Kent behind for another role in a big budget British TV drama.

We most recently saw him in the part of Edward Seymour in Wolf Hall, and he will also star in upcoming films Remainder and Howl. Most prominently, he's been cast alongside Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter in Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.
