Eddie Redmayne learned he was a Golden Globe nominee while Christmas shopping

11 December 2014 9:21 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Most Golden Globe nominees were trying to wake up at a God-awful hour on the west coast this morning. Many were doing the same at a more reasonable time in New York. Best Actor in a Drama nominee, SAG Awards nominee and "Theory of Everything" star Eddie Redmayne? Well, Christmas shopping came first. "I'm in London and it's a blue sky, but it's pretty cold and I had an afternoon off so I had to do all my Christmas shopping in about three hours," Redmayne says. "Then I got the phone call and now I'm about to get stuck into a drink or two far too early in the afternoon." After being reminded that it's never too early to celebrate something like this, Redmayne laughs and adds, "That's what I thought. That's what I'm telling myself, actually." The reason the 32-year-old Brit was out and about was two fold. "We've »

Blu-ray Review: 'Les Misérables'

10 December 2014 3:11 PM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆It's extremely fitting that after Tom Hooper's star-studded version of Les Misérables (2012) has exited stage-left that Raymond Bernard original 1934 adaptation of Victor Hugo’s timeless novel should re-appear fully restored. The film was released as three separate features in 1934 but the Pathe-restored Masters of Cinema Blu-ray enables audiences to watch all 300 minutes of the film's torturous struggle in one go. The narrative of this French classic unfolds in an effortless manner moving from Jean Valjean’s (Harry Baur) release from prison and the orphan Fantine’s (Florelle) carefree days, to Valjean’s eventual adoption of Fantine’s orphaned daughter Cosette (Josseline Gaël).

Tech Support: Analyzing the makeup and hairstyling Oscar race

28 November 2014 3:23 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to one of the most unique categories at the Oscars. Best Makeup & Hairstyling is the only category to still feature the "bake-off” phase, where three nominees are chosen from seven finalists after those finalists each make a pitch-via-reel to the branch. Every year features surprise omissions and inclusions, both among the final seven and the final three. The category seems almost uniquely immune to being overwhelmed by the overall reputation of a film. (Best Costume Design is its only rival in this respect.) Films of questionable quality are nominated nearly every year. While some lament the titles that have earned the moniker "Oscar nominee” ("Norbit” perhaps being the most infamous example), I for one love the fact that this branch actually strives to do what it is tasked with. While these macro-level characteristics of the category permeate the nominations process, trends among the nominees are nevertheless observable. The category tends to award monster makeup, »

Les Misérables star Aaron Tveit: 'I'd love to be in the Wicked movie'

26 November 2014 8:24 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Broadway actor Aaron Tveit has said that he would love to star in a future Wicked movie.

The Les Misérables actor played the character of Fiyero on Broadway in 2008, and told Digital Spy that he thinks the musical will translate well as a movie.

"That's such a fantastic story, and they do a really good job at creating that world on stage," he said. "That would be a fantastic movie.

"Oz the Great and Powerful created such a beautiful, colourful, vibrant world, and I think Wicked could do the same thing. The Wicked book is actually much darker, so they could also go underneath and show that in the film."

When asked if he would like to be involved in the project, he said: "I would definitely be open to that. It's a show and a part that I love, but I've heard nothing about it! It would definitely be something I'd be interested in, »

Movie Review – The Theory of Everything (2014)

24 November 2014 9:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Theory of Everything, 2014.

Directed by James Marsh.

Starring Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Charlie Cox, Harry Lloyd, David Thewlis, Emily Watson and Christian McKay.

Synopsis:

A look at the relationship between Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Hawking (Jones), from their meeting at Cambridge until Hawking’s worldwide success.

There have been many biopics that show a person changing and aging over a long timeframe; some work at realistically showing that, others are just hopeless. The saddening progression of Stephen Hawking’s Motor Neuron Disease will shock and amaze viewers during The Theory of Everything, with stunning work from the make-up department, and an Oscar-worthy performance from Eddie Redmayne.

Come late December, when promotional posters are plastered everywhere for The Theory of Everything, you will be bombarded with 4 and 5 stars littering the advertisement, with quote upon quote heralding the performances, most specifically its lead.

First Images For Joe Wright’s Pan Unveil A Novel Rendition Of Neverland

24 November 2014 9:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While it’s still very much brewing in production, one of the biggest tidbits to come out of the set of Joe Wright’s Pan over the summer was the fact that Hugh Jackman shaved his entire head in order to play the infamous pirate Blackbeard, and today, we got our very first look at the Les Misérables star in costume, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

Billed as a whole new spin on J.M. Barrie’s classic play, Warner Bros.’ upcoming adventure stars Levi Miller, Rooney Mara, Amanda Seyfried and Garrett Hedlund, alongside Hugh Jackman. Moreover, Miller’s Pan will drop the impish personality traits of previous iterations and instead portray his character as a world-weary orphan who, as you are already well aware, never grew old.

Having been whisked away from his World War II setting to Neverland under the ruling of Blackbeard, Peter Pan soon discovers a mystical world »
