Sarah Gadon In "Fashion"

22 November 2015 4:21 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek new images of actress Sarah Gadon, co-star of the upcoming Stephen King mini-series "11.22. 63", in the Fall 2015 issue of "Fashion" magazine:

Gadon's big break was in the 2011 feature "A Dangerous Method", followed by "Cosmopolis" and "Hollywood Maps to the Stars".

"My parents were very pro-education," said Gadon. "I went through some interesting art-enriched programs...my upbringing gave me a studious approach to acting...

"My mom didn’t even really let me buy fashion magazines until I was 16. I just didn’t realize that they were a part of the world. I was reading books; I was a big 'Anne of Green Gables' fan as a kid. And then I was a big gothic romance fan; I loved 'Jane Eyre' and 'Frankenstein'. I grew up on 'Pride and Prejudice' and Jane Austen.

Watch James Franco accept his time travel mission in teaser trailer for ‘11/22/63’

19 November 2015 11:56 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

“I’m gonna tell you something that’s gonna seem crazy.” So James Franco is told in this teaser trailer for Hulu’s adaptation of Stephen King novel “11/22/63.” Here’s the crazy part: There’s a pantry in a diner that’s a portal to the past. Franco’s character, Jake Epping, takes on the task of attempting to change history and prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Watch the 30-second teaser below: Fans of the book will be quick to point out one change from the novel: Jake isn’t traveling back quite so far in time. In the book, the pantry in the diner is a portal to September 9, 1958, but in the teaser, we hear Al say, “If you go through there, it’s 1960.” So is the eight-part series shortening Jake’s time in Jodie, Texas with Sadie or his time stalking Lee Harvey Oswald? Or both? »

Retrospective: The Films Of David Cronenberg

20 October 2015 12:14 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A few years ago when we first took a look through David Cronenberg's filmography, we we wrote that it had been a long journey to “respectability” for the eminent Canadian director. But that was just after a string of films ("A History of Violence," "Eastern Promises" and "A Dangerous Method") that suggested that Cronenberg had perhaps hung up his technophiliac/technophobic psych/body horror spurs for good, and that he was drifting into a more stately and accessible phase of his career. After only few prior dalliances with the mainstream, Cronenberg looked ready to settle down and go steady. But while we're pretty big fans of all three of those films, perhaps he sensed the definite undercurrent of dismay at that assessment last time. His two films since then — "Cosmopolis" and "Maps to the Stars" — may not signal any sort of a return to the clinical yet visceral unease of his early works, »

Sarah Gadon In "Fashion"

9 September 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek new images of Canadian film actress Sarah Gadon ("Cosmopolis") in the October 2015 issue of "Fashion" magazine, photographed by Max Abadian:

Gadon's big break was getting cast alongside Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen in 2011's "A Dangerous Method", followed by "Cosmopolis" and "Hollywood Maps to the Stars".

She then signed her first major beauty contract with 'Giorgio Armani Beauty'.

Her next films include "The Girl King" and "The 9th Life of Louis Drax".

"The whole discussion surrounding gender is something I have been fascinated with since I was in university taking womens' studies," said Gadon. "I think that is what really drives a lot of my work as an actress—especially those questions about identity: Who are we? How do we form ourselves?

"How a character moves in a garment is an external expression of their psyche. I’ve learned that I have so much to learn...I »

Directors' Trademarks: David Cronenberg

28 July 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

About once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. This week, we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of David Cronenberg as director.

Cronenberg first became interested in film during college, where he self-taught himself the art before establishing a co-op to produce films. His first feature length films were art-house movies, Stereo (1969) and Crimes of the Future (1970). Shivers (1975) was his breakthrough. That film received a lot of attention because although people were talking about it, they were divided in regards to its vulgarity, especially considering the fact that it was funded by the Canadian government. Still, it was the most profitable film funded by the Canadian government up to that point. His follow up was Rancid (1977) which was commercially successful. His next movie took a break from body horror to explore his love of cars and racing. »

10 Weird And Creepy Moments In David Cronenberg Films

21 July 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

David Cronenberg remains the king of surreal and horrifying body horror in cinema. He may have branched into other genres such as avant-noir (Cosmopolis), gangster movies (Eastern Promises) and biopic dramas (A Dangerous Method), but his greatest work remains that which fuses his art cinema sensibilities with a dark and terrifying edge.

From his early days as a director fusing schlocky horror with complex post-human science-fiction, to his more narrative- and character-driven recent work, Cronenberg has always been a master of the creepy, claiming that he thinks of horror films “as films of confrontation” that push film in increasingly artistic directions.

Whether Cronenberg has a twisted imagination or can simply boast a sense of humour that is blacker than black, he has consistently created scripts, characters and images that are beyond the imagination of practically every other English-speaking filmmaker. It’s not just his own creations that the »

It’s my body and I’ll ‘Fly’ if I want to: Cronenberg’s scientific cautionary tale

21 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As diverse as his career has been, there is arguably one key feature that best defines a David Cronenberg film. There are, of course, exceptions (in some cases, great exceptions: A History of Violence [2005]), but from Rabid (1977) to A Dangerous Method (2011), the relationship between science and the human body and mind has been a prevalent and powerfully expressive theme in much of the great Canadian filmmaker’s work. Of his films that deal with the repercussions of this relationship, and their unique, often disturbing manifestations, The Fly (1986) may be his finest achievement.

In this horror/sci-fi classic, Jeff Goldblum plays Seth Brundle, a brilliant if socially awkward and rather eccentric scientific mind. His newest invention, a teleportation device that can move inanimate objects from one pod to another, seems innocuous enough, in theory anyway. And at least as he tells it, he seems to have genuinely developed the machine with the best of intentions, »

30 Ways Michael Fassbender Puts the Sex in Sexy

2 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Michael Fassbender is one fassinating actor. We first set our sights on the sexy Irishman when he bared it all as a sex addict in Shame. Then he spanked Keira Knightley as psychiatrist Carl Jung in A Dangerous Method, and he's done more than one striptease in magazine photo shoots over the last few years. Did we mention he speaks fluent German and is set to star in an upcoming Western movie? Besides his devilish grin and proclivity toward playing naughty bad boys, here are a few of the many reasons Michael Fassbender is on our sexy radar. »

Bend It Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?

22 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.

Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

As the cast continues preparing for the West End stage adaptation of Gurinder Chadha's screen hit ahead of previews on May 15, find out what the movie's ensemble cast went on to achieve - including who is coming back for the musical...

What’s the Matter with Havana?: Cronenberg’s L.A. Story a Hot Mess of Tangled Ideas

Couched within its episodic instances of harpooning Hollywood stereotypes, there is a rather interesting tale in Maps to the Stars contending as a wobbly family saga of vacuous types tainted by their desperate attempts to maintain a certain visibility within celebrity culture. But it’s an idea lost in its own maddening attempt at actually engaging in the mythos pointedly laid out in its own subtext as pertains to provocative motifs like incest, nepotism, and (literally) ghosts from the past. The result is a maudlin brew of wacky circumstances and over-the-top flourishes that sometimes work, but, more often than not, fall flat the longer running the time wears on. While it very much feels like a Cronenbergian endeavor, its pointed critique of a particular empty headed culture ends up feeling like a series of wink-wink potshots, »

Review: David Cronenberg's Scandalous And Sickly Enjoyable 'Maps To The Stars'

24 February 2015 4:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Real talk: it's been quite a while since David Cronenberg made something truly satisfying. "Cosmopolis" has a few defenders, "A Dangerous Method" not so much, and while there's stuff to like in "Spider," "A History Of Violence" and "Eastern Promises," all felt compromised to some degree or other. Indeed, the truly unfiltered Cronenberg picture, one where bits fall off people or people try to have sex with orifices not traditionally used for any sexual act, seems like something of a distant memory at this point. But good news is here, because the Canadian director's latest, "Maps To The Stars," just premiered at Cannes, and while it's substantially different from the "Videodrome"s and "Crash"es of the world, and probably rather more disposable, it's certainly the director's most twisted, and as a consequence, most deliciously »

Watch: Explore David Cronenberg's Dangerous Method With 7-Minute Look At His Films

12 February 2015 8:09 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

David Cronenberg. From “Stereo” to “The Fly” to “Crash” (no, not that one, the one from 1996), to “A Dangerous Method” and beyond, it’s hard to argue that the (sometimes) writer, (more often) director has had an eclectic career. And with his first credited short nearly fifty years ago, perhaps that isn't surprising. Vimeo user Shaun Higgins (d.b.a. Hello Wizard) has paid homage to the uniquely varied director via a new seven-minute tribute supercut. The short splices shots from 21 of Cronenberg’s films together, lending some semblance to what defines a Cronenberg picture. In chronological order, going all the way back to 1969 and up through the present, Higgins includes: “Stereo,” “Crimes of the Future,” “Shivers” (a.k.a. “They Came From Within”), “Rabid,” “Fast Company,” “The Brood,” “Scanners,” “Videodrome,” “The Dead Zone,” “The Fly,” “Dead Ringers,” “Naked Lunch,” “M Butterfly,” “Crash,” “eXistenZ,” “Spider,” “A History of Violence,” “Eastern Promises, »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Angelica’

11 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sigmund Freud would have surely had a field day with writer-director Mitchell Lichtenstein, who has now devoted not one but two movies to women with metaphorical steel traps between their legs. In Lichtenstein’s 2007 debut, “Teeth,” the woman in question was a sexually curious teen suffering from an acute case of vagina dentata. In Lichtenstein’s latest, “Angelica,” the focus is on a wife and mother whose fragile health demands that she abstain from all pleasures of the flesh — a dietary restriction that leads to many strange bumps (and humps) in the night. The result is a looney psychosexual potboiler with one foot in “Masterpiece Theater” finery and the other in outre camp abandon, never fully satisfying on either count, but at least partly redeemed by a finely calibrated star turn from Jena Malone. Lacking the shock scares needed to sate the mainstream horror crowd, the film’s commercial prospects are decidedly limited. »

First Look: Tom Hiddleston in Ben Wheatley's 'High-Rise' Adaptation

6 February 2015 8:03 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Over a year ago, we got a teaser poster for Ben Wheatley's adaptation of High-Rise, the next twisted thriller after a series of masterful indies such as Kill List and Sightseers. And now the film is finally looking to hit theaters with sales happening at the European Film Market, which means we get a first look at the thriller starring Tom Hiddleston. The rest of the cast is pretty impressive too since it includes Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Elisabeth Moss, Luke Evans and Stacy Martin, though they aren't anywhere to be seen in this first photo. This is certainly one we're looking forward to whenever it may arrive. Look! Here's our first look at Ben Wheatley's High-Rise from Empire: High-Rise is directed by British filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace, Kill List, Sightseers, A Field in England), from legendary producer Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor, Sexy Beast, A Dangerous Method, »

First Look At Jamie Dornan In Supernatural Thriller The 9th Life Of Louis Drax

30 January 2015 9:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Northern Irish star Jamie Dornan may be melting hearts and stealing headlines ahead of his appearance as Christian Grey in next month’s Fifty Shades of Grey, but the actor also has several other projects in the works, including Alexandre Aja’s The 9th Life Of Louis Drax.

Based on Liz Jensen’s bestselling, eponymous novel from 2004, the story orbits around the titular young boy who has been marred with health issues his entire life. Now, at the age of 9, Louis Drax has slipped into a coma, forcing his neurologist, Dr. Allan Pascal (Dornan), to bring the child back from the brink. However, the twist to the tale here lies in Aaron Paul’s character, Louis’ father, who many suspect to be the cause of his son’s ailments.

As the above picture attests, some of Pascal’s techniques comes out of left field, including a technical device that allows »

New U.S. Trailer & Poster For David Cronenberg’s Maps To The Stars Arrives

8 January 2015 1:49 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Focus World has released the brand new U.S. theatrical trailer & poster for Maps To The Stars, directed by David Cronenberg & starring Julianne MooreMia Wasikowska with John Cusack and Robert Pattinson.

Cronenberg is equally known for not flinching from any subject, and for making films that are as challenging and substantial as they are suspenseful and visually compelling. Early in his career, he made a series of vivid, fantastical thrillers including Scanners, Videodrome, The Fly, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, eXistenZ and Spider. More recently, his filmmaking has become even more expansive with the high-style crime thrillers A History of Violence and Eastern Promises, the psychological, sex- infused historical drama about Freud and Jung, A Dangerous Method, and his adaptation of Cosmopolis which takes place almost entirely in a billionaire’s limousine on one fateful trip through the city.

For Cronenberg, Maps To The Stars was another chance to switch »
