The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

Glenn Close Dons Convincing Drag On The Albert Nobbs Set

16 December 2010 9:09 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With her short haircut and thin frame Glenn Close is an easier candidate for cross-dressing than many women, but I don't think anyone anticipated exactly how well she'd pull it off until seeing photos from the set of her new movie Albert Nobbs, about a woman cross-dressing to find work in 18th century Ireland. The Daily Mail snagged the photo of Close in costume walking to the set, and you can see a larger version of it below. It's pretty damn impressive, I have to say. Close has been working to get Albert Nobbs made for years and production is finally getting started, with Aaron Johnson, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Mia Wasikowska and Michael Gambon also part of the cast. Rodrigo Garcia, who last made the drama Mother and Child, will be directing the adaptation of the play based on a short story. Close has been clearing up awards nominations for her »

Morning Meme: Sir Ian McKellen Lives Out and Proud, Katee Sackhoff's New Show, and David Boies Does "The Colbert Report"

16 December 2010 5:41 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

 

Sir Ian McKellen is my hero. Speaking about homophobia to school children in conjunction with Stonewall, he says he’s doing it because “By talking frankly about my own life as a gay man and listening to the concerns of staff and students, parents and governors, I hope the visits arranged by Stonewall may make a difference in the classroom and the playground.”

Ft. Worth Councilman Joel Burns is a finalist for Texan of the Year. If a gay man wins this award, you can find me skiing at my chalet in hell.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees have been announced, and I really don’t care. Donna Summer didn’t make it. And Neil Diamond did. Not that either of those two have anything to do with rock and roll.

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t even pick up a book titled Being Gay is Disgusting or God »

Firts Look: Glenn Close in Lead Role in Albert Nobbs

16 December 2010 12:29 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Here’s the first image of Glenn Close from Albert Nobbs movie set in Dublin, which Rodrigo Garcia is directing from a script by Close and John Banville.

The movie is based on the short story by Irish writer George Moore.

Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning 63-year-old Close plays an English woman who disguises herself as a male so she could land a job as a butler in 19th century Ireland.

Albert Nobbs also produced by Close stars Aaron Johnson, Mia Wasikowska, Michael Gambon, Jonathan Rhys Meyers among others.

Here’s the official Albert Nobbs synopsis:

19th century Ireland: a woman with no husband or family and without work would face a bleak life of poverty and loneliness.

Albert, a shy butler who keeps himself to himself, has been hiding a deep secret for years – ‘he’ is a woman who has had to dress and behave as a man all her life »

Glenn Close Dresses as a Man for Albert Nobbs

15 December 2010 2:38 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Daily Mail have revealed the first images of Glenn Close in her new movie, Albert Nobbs where the makeup and clothing department have done an amazing job turning her convincingly into a man. I watched the Salt Blu-ray extras today and spent 10 minutes watching how they supposedly made her look like a man – the only issue was, she still looked like a woman! Obviously this production has spent rather a lot more time on the job in hand since it’s the main storyline of the movie.

Plot: Albert Nobbs struggles to survive in late 19th century Ireland.

The movie also stars Aaron Johnson, Michael Gambon, Mia Wasikowska, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and is directed by Rodrigo García.

We are rather disturbed by this image! Anyone else?!

Which Actress Is Looking (Very) Manly on New Movie Set?

15 December 2010 1:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Guess who! Which Golden Globe-winning actress recently stepped on set looking, well, not quite like herself? Here's a hint: she's previously donned black & white - think 101 Dalmatians and The West Wing - and went otherworldly in the cult classic Mars Attacks, though we don't think she's ever ditched her feminine roots for a role before. Got an idea? If you guessed Glenn Close, you're right! Snapped on the set of her new film, Albert Nobbs, Wednesday, the Damages star was all suited up. In the movie, she plays an English woman forced to pretend she's a man in order to »

First Look: Glenn Close as the Title Character in ‘Albert Nobbs’

15 December 2010 12:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Early this week Glenn Close started filming her passion project Albert Nobbs, which adapts a story about a woman who disguised herself as a man to escape poverty in 19th Century Ireland. Mia Wasikowska and Aaron Johnson are also in the cast [1] of the film, which Rodrigo Garcia is directing from a script by Glenn Close and John Banville. That's the first look as Close in character, above, and it's pretty damn convincing. See a bigger image after the break. 19th century Ireland: a woman with no husband or family and without work would face a bleak life of poverty and loneliness.

Glenn Close as Albert Nobbs

15 December 2010 10:34 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn Close got back in front of movie cameras two days ago. Albert Nobbs has just started filming. She plays a cross dressing woman in 1890's Ireland.

[photo src]

Barring the movie going to cable (these things happen) of failing to get distribution (these things happen, too) will Glenn Close finally be back in the Oscar race next year at this time? She was last nominated for 1988's Dangerous Liaisons over twenty years ago. Since that Oscar regular heyday (5 nominations all within the 1980s) she's gone on to win 3 Emmys, 1 SAG and 2 Golden Globes for television roles.

The film is directed by Rodrigo García (pictured left with Close) who specializes in the actresses, most famously in television or in films like Mother & Child, Nine Lives and Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her. We hope he finds new inner fire as a writer/director this time. The talent with actors »

Glenn Close is lookin like a man in the first photo from The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs

15 December 2010 9:00 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Glenn Close is the leading man in her own project, Albert Nobbs. To be honest, if I had just seen this picture (/Film via Daily Mail) sans text, I would have thought it was a man who looked a lot like Glenn Close. Talk about getting into character... Close has been trying to get this film off the ground for about fifteen years now. The story of an English woman who disguises herself as a male butler to find work comes from a short story by Irish writer George Moore. Close knew the role »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »

Orlando Bloom On For The Hobbit?

8 December 2010 4:05 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If you were disappointed to learn that Orlando Bloom is likely out of Glenn Close’s period pic Albert Nobbs, here’s some news that should have those with Bloom-loving hearts skipping a joyful beat: Deadline reports that Legolas could be shield-surfing back into the Lord of the Rings universe for The Hobbit.Like the return of Cate Blanchett as Galadriel announced yesterday, the involvement of Bloom’s elf warrior raises eyebrows if only because he doesn’t actually appear in Tolkien’s book (though they do drop by his Mirkwood birthplace, at one point and the Lego-lad's dad, Thranduil, appears as the Elvenking.)But there are two fairly simple explanations for Peter Jackson gathering the old guard back: he’s either tinkering with the story to expand The Hobbit’s world to two movies, or some of the characters are being used in the second of the two movies »
