Another Oscar? Eddie Redmayne Plays A Transgender Icon In The Danish Girl Image

27 February 2015 11:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Keaton should just take the year off. No matter how good the Birdman star is in this fall’s Boston Globe drama Spotlight, next year’s Best Actor Oscar could quite possibly be Eddie Redmayne’s for the taking once again. The first image from Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl, which stars the Theory of Everything actor (who last partnered with Hooper on Les Misérables) as a transgender pioneer, has surfaced online, finding Redmayne looking radiant as always.

Redmayne stars in the pic as Einer Wegener, who would later rename herself Lili Elbe, one of the first men to undergo a sex reassignment surgery. Adapting David Ebershoff’s novel, The Danish Girl specifically looks at the complicated relationship between Elbe and her wife Greta (Alicia Vikander), who became a famed artist for painting Elbe in drag.

The project has been a hot commodity for years, with such respected »

27 February 2015 8:35 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Fresh off his Oscar win, Eddie Redmayne is keeping busy filming The Danish Girl, a true story.

The movie is directed by Tom Hooper (with whom Redmayne worked on Les Misérables) and costars Amber Heard. It's not due out until 2016, but now I can't wait to see more! »

Eddie Redmayne as a Woman: Photo Shows Actor as Transgender Pioneer Lili Elbe

27 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

You've never seen newly minted Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne quite like this. The 33-year-old actor is currently working on The Danish Girl, which follows the story of transgender pioneer Lili Elbe (played by Redmayne) who was one of the first recipients of sex reassignment surgery, almost a century ago. And now, the production company behind the film has released the first photo of Redmayne in the role - in full makeup and curly red wig. The film, which is currently in production, is being directed by Tom Hooper, whom Redmayne worked with in 2012's Les Misérables. The project is being »

Disney’s Into The Woods Hits March 24th Packed With Extras

25 February 2015 5:53 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Into the Woods is hitting on Blu-Ray March 24th, and this one has a lot of great bonuses. Of course, it’s to be expected from Disney, but beyond that, this is one that doesn’t even need a lot of bonuses. Check our Into the Woods review here for the full report on the film itself.

Among the bonuses are a commentary track, several behind-the-scenes featurettes, and a look at the cast.

Not only was this a really great movie (and I’m no huge musical fan), but it’s one that, like most things Disney, is going to go into heavy rotation.

Check out all the details below.

 

Includes An Exclusive, Never-Before-Seen Original Song “She’ll Be Back” Performance by Meryl Streep with Music By Stephen Sondheim and Lyrics by James Lapine

11 Actors Who Had an Oscar-Nominated Movie & a Total Bomb Come Out at the Same Time

20 February 2015 8:32 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Not every movie can be a winner. And not every actor can be Meryl Streep.

Even Oscar nominees make bad movies and sometimes, in an unfortunate twist of fate and bad timing, that bomb, that dud, that total and complete flop, comes out at the same time as some of the best work of their life. Here are 11 times that happened in the past 10 years:

Focus Features

1. Eddie Redmayne (2015)

Nominated Role: The Theory of Everything. Redmayne is the Best Actor favorite this year for this biopic about Stephen Hawking navigating black holes and Als.

Losing Role: Jupiter Ascending. This totally effing bonkers Wachowski sci-fi flick came out just before Oscar voting started. And once you see Redmayne as Bowie-esque space prince Balem Abrasax, it cannot be unseen.

The Weinstein Company

2. Jennifer Lawrence (2013)

Winning Role: Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence took home Best Actress for her turn as a trouble townie named Tiffany in this dark spin on a rom-com »

The Last Five Years Review

11 February 2015 7:39 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In life, there are couples that we hope will always stay together, just as there are romances that are doomed to succeed. From the latter group, it is often due to the poor matching of both people in the relationship. If you despise one half of the union, you secretly hope for their love to dissolve. The same is true for couples in the movies: you want to be rooting for both sides to reach an apex of romantic ecstasy so that you can go home happy.

The main issue with The Last Five Years, a new musical from director Richard Lagravenese (Freedom Writers), is not just that the young male and female protagonists are a bad match, but the actors who occupy those roles are poorly suited for each other. Anna Kendrick is one of the best young actors working in Hollywood today, and also a vibrantly talented singer. »

‘Jupiter’ Ascends A Touch; ‘Exodus’ Crosses $200M: Intl Box Office Actuals

10 February 2015 3:45 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Deadline reported grosses on Jupiter Ascending on Sunday at $32.5M and that estimate rose on Monday to $33.8M in Warner Bros’ actuals. There are still Australia, China and Japan releases to come, but with an $18.7M opening domestically and with Fifty Shades Of Grey teed up to begin its day-and-date rollout tomorrow, Jupiter will be pressed to ascend major overseas heights. Elsewhere internationally, The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water soaked up $16.2M for a cume of $26.8M after two frames. According to Paramount, that’s 5.5 times bigger than the original Spongebob for the same bucket of markets. The next big players were The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 thanks to a strong China start; Disney’s Big Hero 6; and Fox’s Taken 3. Meanwhile, Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings rode past the $200M mark as it continues to play in Japan and wraps up in Brazil. Key »

Jupiter Ascending movie review: princess drearies

5 February 2015 12:32 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Sees no need to engage metaphor or dispense with cliché, so when you haven’t seen it before, you can’t believe what you’re seeing. And not in a good way. I’m “biast” (pro): I am desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): science fiction isn’t treated so well at the movies these days

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Oh my god, hooray! A space adventure with a woman at its center! And it’s Mila Kunis, who is awesome! She’s gonna be like a new Luke Skywalker, whisked away from a boring life on Tatooine– er, Earth for more exciting interstellar horizons beyond! Woo-hoo!

Yeah, not so much, as it happens. What happens is more like: Kunis (Annie, Blood Ties) gets drugged, attacked, chased, menaced, threatened, rescued, kidnapped, chased some more, rescued again. Rinse and repeat for a good hour and half. »

Anne Hathaway on the Pressure of Following Up Her Oscar Win and What She Learned By Producing 'Song One'

23 January 2015 12:22 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Time Warner Cable Movies On Demand in support of Indie Film Month. Today's pick, "Song One," is available now On Demand. This interview originally ran during last year's Sundance Film Festival.] It's hard to believe, but it's been over a year since Anne Hathaway last graced the screen in "Les Misérables," the film that went on to win the actress her first Oscar. Since singing her way to glory as Fantine, Hathaway has maintained a low public profile, working on Christopher Nolan's hugely anticipated fall blockbuster "Interstellar" and diving into her first job as a producer on the low budget indie "Song One," in which she also stars. The film (written and directed by newcomer Kate Barker-Froyland) marks the first of Hathaway's to screen at the Sundance Film Festival. In the drama, Hathaway stars as Franny, an anthropologist who returns home to New York when an accident »

Anne Hathaway on ‘Song One': ‘Music is One of My Favorite Parts of Living’

21 January 2015 11:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anne Hathaway can now add producer to her impressive résumé.

The Oscar winner and her husband, Adam Shulman, have teamed up with Jonathan Demme — director on Hathaway’s “Rachel Getting Married” — to produce their first film, “Song One,” the debut feature from writer-director Kate Barker-Froyland.

“I really loved producing. I loved being able to support a filmmaker in a way beyond acting in a movie,” Hathaway, 32, told Variety at the film’s Cinema Society premiere in New York on Tuesday night. “I learned that the goal is the same whether I am an actor or a producer — that I will do anything to get the director’s vision.”

Hathaway (dressed head to toe in white, in an Iro blazer, Theory pants and sheer top) along with Shulman, reunited with cast members Johnny Flynn and Ben Rosenfield at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema for the first time since the picture premiered at »

Why Anne Hathaway still likes the Oscars, despite their strange relationship

19 January 2015 11:40 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Anne Hathaway hosted the Oscars with a spiritually absent James Franco in 2011 and won an Academy Award during a period of notable Hathaway backlash. It's fair to say she has the strangest relationship with the Oscars of any living human being. We told her this. She laughed -- then agreed. "That might be true," she said. "But I'm really excited when you watch people grow through it the first time. That energy is a very real thing. Like right now I'm really excited for Eddie Redmayne... He's an incredible actor, so hard-working, and he's killed it in every role he's ever had, whether he's had one line or he's singing an aria in 'Les Miz.'" Check out our interview to see Hathaway, the star of the new and intense drama "Song One" out January 23, discuss the character she misses playing most, the time she met Barbra Streisand, and her love for J.K. Simmons. »

Love Is The Rhythm And Anne Hathaway Is The Music In New Trailer For Song One

16 January 2015 8:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having spent time winning praise and stealing hearts across a variety of major productions in the past few years — The Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar and Les MisérablesAnne Hathaway is primed to make a return to the kind of indie romances that helped put her on the map with Kate Barker-Froyland’s musical drama, Song One.

Taking place within the musical scene of Brooklyn, the film will chart the story of Hathaway’s Franny who unexpectedly finds love in James Forester’s Johnny. What underpins this relationship, however, is the fact that Franny’s brother Henry (played here by Boardwalk Empire‘s Ben Rosenfield) recently suffered from a horrible accident that places him in a coma. As it turns out, the musically gifted Johnny is his long-time idol, giving Hathaway’s protagonist a poignant and tragic connection to her sibling as she tries to wean him back to the land of the living through music. »

Matthias Schoenaerts Joins Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl

9 January 2015 8:57 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off a strong turn in underrated crime drama The Drop, Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts has joined the cast of The Danish Girl, a period love story to be helmed by Les Misérables director Tom Hooper.

Schoenarts, whose previous films include Bullhead and Rust & Bone, will act opposite a trio of tremendously talented stars, including The Theory of Everything‘s Eddie Redmayne, veritable Next Big Thing Alicia Vikander (her upcoming films include Ex Machina, Testament of Youth, The Man from Uncle, Tulip Fever and The Light Between Oceans) and The Rum Diary‘s Amber Heard.

The Danish Girl, adapted from the novel by David Ebershoff by Lucinda Coxon (The Crimson Petal and the White), focuses on the unusual romance between Danish painter Einar Wegener (Redmayne) and his wife Gerda (Vikander), also an accomplished painter.

Matthias Schoenaerts joins Tom Hooper’s gender-bending 'The Danish Girl'

8 January 2015 8:36 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After 2011’s "Bullhead" earned a Best Foreign Language Academy Award nomination, Matthias Schoenaerts could have become a James Bond villain and called it a day. Instead, the muscle-laden Belgian actor has challenged type-casting by sticking to promising films and name costars. Schoenaerts’ next project is destined for an awards frenzy: He’s set to join current Best Actor contender Eddie Redmayne in "The Danish Girl." Academy Award-winning director Tom Hooper follows up "Les Misérables" with the culled-from-real-life story, dramatizing the life of Danish painter Einar Wegener, who became one of the first men to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Lucinda Coxon ("Crimson Peak") wrote "The Danish Girl," based on a novel by David Ebershoff. Redmayne signed on to play Wegener last April.  Deadline’s original report is unclear about who Schoenaerts will play in "The Danish Girl," though his mere inclusion bumps up the film’s prestiguous cast, which includes Alicia Vikander »
