Your Top Three: Woody Allen Movies

15 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. Magic in the Moonlight is Woody Allen's 45th feature film as credited director. That's almost one per year since the first release back in 1966, and if we count some of the ones he at least wrote and are often considered Woody Allen films, the ratio is just about even. Not all are masterpieces, of course, but regardless it's quite a task to thumb through all those titles and pick a favorite. Or three favorites. Even to say he's well beyond his best years, there are a lot of modern-day Woody movies that fans have added to their list of top-tier titles, such as Match Point, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Midnight in Paris and last year's box office smash and...

Film Review: ‘Magic in the Moonlight’ is Woody Allen By-the-Book

20 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – After last year’s powerful “Blue Jasmine,” writer/director Woody Allen’s trajectory seemed destined toward another film masterpiece, but “Magic in the Moonlight” isn’t it. Colin Firth and Emma Stone are an unlikely pairing in this seen-it-before-Woody film trifle.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Again Allen goes back to the 1920s, an era he has explored before in “Bullets Over Broadway” and to a lesser degree “Midnight in Paris.” The elements of magicians and illusions have also been covered in “Shadows and Fog” and the underrated “Stardust Memories.” Thematically, it feels like Woody Allen has done this film before, even in the relationship between Colin Firth and Emma Stone, which generates zero chemistry. In his quest to make at least one film a year, the 78-year-old auteur has made this one a placeholder, albeit a funnier, more beautifully filmed and at times more interesting placeholder – better than most of the films out there. »

‘Magic in the Moonlight’ is beautiful-looking and funny, but hard to fall in love with

Magic in the Moonlight

Written and directed by Woody Allen

USA, 2014

Woody Allen’s newest film, Magic in the Moonlight, has yet another appealing ensemble, this one featuring Emma Stone, Colin Firth, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, and a handful of other beloved character actors. A 1928 period piece, the film follows Stanley (Firth), a famous magician, as he tries to expose Sophie (Stone), a mystic of increasing notoriety and a possible swindler. Set in the south of France, the film takes place between two houses: the house of Grace (Jacki Weaver), who wants Sophie to stay and help her connect with her late husband, and the house of Stanley’s aunt Vanessa (Eileen Atkins), which Stanley frequently visits to get away from magic and process his thoughts.

Magic in the Moonlight is a very beautiful film in terms of its aesthetic, with its 1920s attire combined with a secluded scenic area of France, »

Magic In The Moonlight Review

24 July 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After making a detour in San Francisco to help Cate Blanchett strike gold at last year’s Oscars, Woody Allen kicks off another leg of his European tour with Magic in the Moonlight. Borrowing the magical realist conceit along with the backdrop of Midnight in Paris, and cherry-picking just a hint of the class commentary from Blue Jasmine, Magic in the Moonlight is less a culmination of Allen’s recent output than it is a jazzy riff on the same stories and ideas that have occupied him for the better part of a decade. While the film makes clear that Allen has played these same beats for pretty much all they’re worth by now, the fresh-faced cast and comforting familiarity of Magic in the Moonlight liven up its well-rehearsed routine.

Looking to the future with as much anxiety as Midnight in Paris looked to the past with nostalgia, Magic in the Moonlight »

Box Office: Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Lucy’ to Out Muscle ‘Hercules’

23 July 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of Hollywood’s hottest action stars will inject a shot of adrenaline into the moribund summer box office this weekend, when “Lucy,” Scarlett Johansson’s revenge thriller, hits screens.

Distributed by Universal, “Lucy” will unroll across 3,172 theaters this weekend and should shoot up an estimated $36 million. That would be a nice return on a $40 million budget and a sign that audiences don’t always need their on-screen mayhem to arrive pre-branded, pre-merchandised and plucked from venerable comic books or toylines. It’s the rare original film that looks ready to upend the steady stream of same-olds.

Film Review: Scarlett Johansson’s “Lucy

Sadly, “Lucy’s” main competition, “Hercules,” is looking less than godly. Paramount and MGM’s $100 million re-imagining of the old Hydra killer is on track to debut to roughly $25 million across 3,600 locations, which would be a scrawny showing given the high cost of the production.

Brett Ratner (“Tower Heist”) directs the film, »

Magic in the Moonlight Review: Emma Stone, Colin Firth Have "Chemistry," Yet Woody Allen's Film Is "Fluffier Than a Croissant"

23 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

In theaters Friday, July 25 2 1/2 stars (out of 4 stars) An enchanting look at unlikely powers of love, this comedy is fluffier than a croissant just out of the oven. That's not good enough. By now, we expect more from a sharp-witted, prolific genius like writer-director Woody Allen. At 78 years old, he's still at the pinnacle of his profession, dutifully releasing one original film a year. In the past decade alone, he's crafted such masterworks as Blue Jasmine, Match Point and Midnight in Paris. It's [...] »

Rachel McAdams Gushes About Lindsay's Lohan's Talent

22 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Rachel McAdams is a fan of Lindsay Lohan! The "Mean Girls" star covers the latest issue of Allure magazine -- sporting minimal makeup -- where she opens up about working with the troubled actress on the high school comedy. Reports have claimed that Lindsay was intimidated by the "Notebook" actress, but McAdams has nothing but kind words to say about the former child star. "If anything, I was in awe of her talent," McAdams tells the mag. "I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural. It's just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking. We all try to act like we've got it together."The now-seasoned actress first shot to fame in "The Hot Chick," where she played a man trapped in a teenage girl's body ... and Rachel says that the striptease scene in the flick was »

'Magic in the Moonlight' (2014) Movie Review

21 July 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In my opinion a new Woody Allen movie every year is a bit of a treat. Yes, they can disappoint such as Whatever Works, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and To Rome with Love, but they can also be true knock outs such as Vicki Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris, along with the stunning performance from Cate Blanchett in last year's Blue Jasmine, and that's only looking at the last six Allen films. He's directed nearly 50 over his illustrious career and I'd say his latest, Magic in the Moonlight, falls somewhere in the middle. Set in France in the 1920s, the film is complete with all the acerbic wit, pessimism for life and otherwise charm the better Allen films often exude. Magic in the Moonlight's first two-thirds are delightful as we're first introduced to Colin Firth in the role of Stanley Crawford, a pompous and arrogant »

20 Upcoming Movies That Are Going To Rock

21 July 2014 1:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures Classics

Earlier in the week, we ran a fairly negatively-inclined article that took aim at all those upcoming movies that look like they’re going to… well, suck. In deeming those movies as “potentially awful,” then, we considered a bunch of aspects: the previous works of the writers and directors, the trailers and material we’ve glimpsed so far, the stars, the budgets, the supposed “storylines.” Chances are we’ll end up being right about most of them, but who knows? We wouldn’t exactly mind being wrong, either.

So, for the sake of variety, let’s take an extensive look on the other side of the fence. Here are 20 movies that – going on what we know so far – are probably going to be downright awesome when they’re released into theatres in the not too distant future. These are the motion pictures we’re all super excited »

Will Paul Thomas Anderson World Premiere 'Inherent Vice' at the New York Film Festival, or Sneak It First?

19 July 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As expected, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson’s "Inherent Vice," a '70s detective comedy, will world premiere at the upcoming 52nd New York Film Festival (September 26 – October 12) as the Centerpiece gala on Saturday October 4, declaring itself as a fall awards contender. The fest has launched awards campaigns in recent years for "A Social Network," "Life of Pi," "Flight," "Her," "Hugo" and "Captain Phillips." Anderson's adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel boasts a top-flight cast: Joaquin Phoenix ("The Master"), Josh Brolin ("W"), Reese Witherspoon ("Legally Blonde"), Benicio Del Toro ("Traffic") and Owen Wilson ("Midnight in Paris"). This is Anderson’s third fest outing after "Boogie Nights" (1997) and "Punch-Drunk Love" (2002). Warner Bros. will open the film limited on December 12, 2014 and wide on January »

Emma Stone & Colin Firth Star In 10 New Stills For ‘Magic In The Moonlight’

18 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As Woody Allen continues his ‘film a year‘ project, it looks like he’s come up with another quirky comedy that stars Emma Stone and Colin Firth, and it’s all set in the 1920s on the Riviera in the south of France. Quintessentially, Magic In The Moonlight is a romantic comedy about a master magician (Colin Firth) trying to expose a psychic medium (Emma Stone) as a fake.

With two very likable leads, this might not have the intensity of Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine but recalls a touch of Midnight In Paris. For this film, it follows the supposed Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo, who is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Firth), a grouchy Englishman with a sky opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists’ claims that they can perform real magic. »

Film Review: ‘Magic in the Moonlight’

17 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Romance blooms under the sun and the stars in Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight,” a high-spirited bauble that goes down easy thanks to fleet comic pacing, a surfeit of ravishing Cote d’Azur vistas and the genuinely reactive chemistry of stars Colin Firth and Emma Stone. A welcome balm for the blockbuster-addled soul, Allen’s 44th feature finds the director back in the 1920s Gallic mood of 2011’s “Midnight in Paris,” with the star-crossed lovers this time held apart not by time but rather by philosophical inclinations. While the result may not quite equal “Midnight’”s box office bonanza, expect “Magic” to handily corner the upscale adult demo for the remainder of summer, continuing the Woodman’s late-career hot streak.

A childhood magic buff and amateur magician, Allen has incorporated hypnotists, stage illusionists and touches of the supernatural into many films including “Alice,” “The Curse of the Jade Scorpion” and “Scoop, »

Emma Stone Flummoxes Colin Firth in New Trailer for Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight

17 July 2014 5:02 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Centering your story around a stage-weary magician who targets a celebrated medium intent on disproving her acclaimed skills as a psychic seems like a ripe idea. Notions of belief and denial, fraud and fragility can all come into play, and as this is a Woody Allen they most certainly will. Casting Colin Firth and Emma as respective magician and medium gives an idea of where Magic in the Moonlight is heading.

Warner Bros. have released a new trailer for Allen’s latest film, which seems to set him back on the solid ground of mercurial whimsy so enjoyed by the Midnight in Paris set of a couple of years ago. His last, Blue Jasmine, conjured up the same ravings (return to form, later serious film etc) but did get an Oscar-shaped commendation for Cate Blanchett. This looks to be far lighter in tone, but that’s no bad thing at all. »

Here's What Twitter Has to Say About Sunday's Premiere of The Strain

14 July 2014 5:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Guillermo Del Toro, Chuck Hogan and Carlton Cuse's new vampire-meets-epidemiology show The Strain premiered on FX Sunday, and if the Monday morning Internet reaction is any indication, the show is going to be a hit. Social media is hopping over the show's blend of gross-out effects, monsters and atmospheric horror. We'll obviously have to wait a little while to see if that combination translates to ratings success for FX, but in the meantime, let's see what Twitter had to say about the show's premiere, shall we? "Perhaps the hairpiece will speak in the voice of Alec Baldwin." http://t. »

'The Strain' star Corey Stoll talks hair, leading man roles and vampires on the set

11 July 2014 9:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto, On. Let's get this out of the way, because you're already thinking it. It's mid-March in a chilly interview room on the Toronto set of FX's "The Strain" and star Corey Stoll is chatting with one of three small roundtables of reporters. We've been talking for at least 15 minutes without addressing the elephant in the room, so I broach the all-important topic: Hair, or augmentation thereof. Stoll's visibility has increased dramatically in recent years and it's not like audiences are unfamiliar with seeing him with tonsorial assistance. His Ernest Hemingway in "Midnight in Paris" featured both a well-adorned head and a mustache that he carried over into NBC's "Law & Order: Los Angeles." That role and his Golden Globe nominated turn in "House of Cards" were recognizably clear-pated, which has already had people scratching their heads about the floppy hair Stoll is sporting in "The Strain." What, I ask Stoll, »

Check out the brand new poster for This Is Where I Leave You.

When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.

The dramatic comedy is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development »

‘Grand Central’, starring Tahar Rahim and Léa Seydoux, gets a UK trailer

8 July 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 2009 french feature A Prophet gave many international film fans their first look at Tahar Rahim, who garnered critical acclaim for his performance, going on to roles in movies such as Love and Bruises and The Past. Léa Seydoux has, over the course of her career, garnered her own fans and acclaim in movies such as Inglourious Basterds, Midnight in Paris, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and Blue is the Warmest Color. Fans of both performers were thus intrigued to learn that their next project would see the duo work together. Titled Grand Central, the film is directed by Rebecca Zlotowski, who co-wrote the screenplay with Gaëlle Macé. A UK trailer for the feature, which has yet to gain Us distribution, has now been released, and can be seen below.

New images of Colin Firth and Emma Stone in Magic in the Moonlight

7 July 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Woody Allen must have found inspiration in his own 2011 film, Midnight in Paris, since his latest comedy is once again set at the height of the Roaring Twenties.  Unlike Midnight, this summer’s Magic in the Moonlight doesn’t require an old car to transport it’s cast back in time each night since it’s firmly set in the past.

Set in the fabulous French Riviera, Stanley (Colin Firth) is a British magician who is sent to the South of France to unmask spiritualist Sophie (Emma Stone), who might be exploiting a wealthy family. 

The film co-stars Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, Simon McBurney, and Hamish Linklater.  Magic in the Moonlight doesn’t open in theatres until August 1, but you can check out more than a dozen newly-released stills from the film below.  Check out Emma Stone and Colin Firth in their fashionable 1920’s attire now:   »

Will Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Go from Supermodel to Wife of an Inmate?

3 July 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy already has a pretty colorful resume: She's been a supermodel who dated Mick Jagger, a well-reviewed singer-songwriter and an actress who scored a cameo in Woody Allen's 2011 film, Midnight in Paris. And, of course, the Italian-born renaissance woman has been the first lady of France. It's that last bit, her marriage to former president Nicolas Sarkozy, that now might land her the future title of Prison Wife. Bruni-Sarkozy's husband, who led France from 2007 to 2012, scowled at cameras outside the couple's Paris home on Wednesday, after he was held by police late Tuesday for 15 hours of questioning that »
