'I never knew how much I'd write crying': Peter Bradshaw on film star deaths

23 June 2016 5:26 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Following the loss of actor Anton Yelchin, our movie critic reflects on how reporting celebrity deaths occupies a greater part of his work in the digital age, and what that tells us of society, grief and stardom

On Sunday night, I wrote a blogpost about Anton Yelchin, the young Russian-born actor — most famous for playing Chekov in the new Star Trek movies — who had died at 27 in a freak accident. I wrote about the sweet, childlike openness of his face, his excellent performance in the millennials’ romance Like Crazy, and the poignancy of the way he was starting to look leaner and tougher in Jeremy Saulnier’s hardcore horror Green Room. It was only on reading Tom Hiddleston’s online tribute to Yelchin the next day that I realised to my mortification that I had forgotten about his subtly excellent work opposite Hiddleston in Jim Jarmusch’s vampire film Only Lovers Left Alive. »

What Was Your Favorite Anton Yelchin Performance? — CriticWire Survey

20 June 2016 8:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, the CriticWire Survey asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday morning. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of the late Anton Yelchon, who was killed in a tragic accident early Sunday morning, which was your favorite of his performances?

Christopher Campbell (@thefilmcynic), Nonfics

It’s definitely not his best movie, and maybe it’s not really technically his best acting, but my favorite of Yelchin’s performances is in “Terminator Salvation.” You could tell he tried to sound like Michael Biehn in “The Terminator” in his portrayal of young Kyle Reese, and that meant a lot to me as a fan of these movies. And it shows how much he took care in his work »

Anton Yelchin on Acting, Power of Punk, 'Absurdity of Existence'

20 June 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

After starring in the Star Trek franchise reboot and a Terminator sequel in 2009, Anton Yelchin could have transitioned to making blockbusters full-time. But the actor, who died yesterday in a freak automobile accident at the age of 27, went in the opposite direction, putting his franchise clout to work on movies by cult directors like Jim Jarmusch (Only Lovers Left Alive), Joe Dante (Burying the Ex), Paul Schrader (Dying of the Light) and Michael Almereyda (Cymbeline).

Yelchin didn't talk like a movie star, either. For someone who'd been in the industry since he was a child, »

Anton Yelchin (1989-2016)

20 June 2016 7:09 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This calendar year has been filled to the brim with unthinkables. The latest terribly sad happening: The talented Russian-American actor Anton Yelchin died yesterday in a freak accident at only 27 years of age. He was crushed by his own car on its steep driveway incline.

Yelchin was best known to general audiences as Chekov in the modern Star Trek franchise but to us he'll always be Byrd Huffstodt (the sensitive brainy teen in the underappreciated cable drama Huff) or awestruck poseur Ian (from the hipster vampire greatness that was Only Lovers Left Alive), and especially Jacob from the college romance drama Like Crazy (2011). Though Like Crazy was mostly heralded at the time for Felicity Jones's work as his British girlfriend, it was Yelchin that gave the movie its lovestruck foolish soul... but nuanced emotionally astute work by male actors, especially young ones, in romantic dramas are rarely given their just critical props. »

'Star Trek Beyond' Actor Anton Yelchin Dies at 27

20 June 2016 5:51 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Star Trek Beyond actor Anton Yelchin, perhaps best known for his role as Pavel Chekov in the J.J. Abrams film reboot series, has passed away TMZ reported Sunday morning.

According to the outlet, friends of the actor grew worried after he didn't meet them hours earlier for a rehearsal. They visited his home around 1 in the morning, only to find Yelchin "pinned between his car and a brick mailbox pillar, which was attached to a security gate."

The car's engine was running, and it was in neutral. The driveway itself is on a fairly steep incline, but it is unknown why the actor left his car.

Despite the strange incident, at this moment, law enforcement suspects no foul play. The car in question was a Jeep Grand Cherokee, and while we don't know the exact year the vehicle was made, Gizmodo noted that 2014 to 2016 models were up for a recall, »

Film News: Anton Yelchin, Chekov from ‘Star Trek’ Reboot, Dies at 27

20 June 2016 4:37 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Los Angeles – The loss of a up-and-coming actor at an early age is always a tragic event, and Anton Yelchin has been added to that roster. In a freak automobile accident at his home, Yelchin died on June 19th, 2016. He was best known for embracing the role of Pavel Chekov in the “Star Trek” film series reboot. He was 27 years old.

Yelchin came to Chicago in 2011 to promote his romantic drama “Like Crazy,” and his charismatic youth was confidently within his burgeoning career. At that point, at 22 years old, he had already done the “Star Trek” reboot and “Terminator: Salvation,” and was looking forward to roles in “The Beaver” and as a voice actor in the first “Smurfs” film. He was intelligent, and had a good-head-on-his-shoulders perspective regarding the sometimes crazy world of the film business.

Rip Anton Yelchin: 9 Reasons We Loved His Performances

19 June 2016 1:24 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Anton Yelchin passed away at the tragically young age of 27, at a time when many actors’ careers are just gathering momentum. But Yelchin had already amassed an impressive filmography that stretched back to his childhood, with an eclectic mixture of blockbusters, TV projects, and smaller efforts. “I’m just a huge supporter of this universe of filmmaking,” he told IndieWire in 2011. “It’s just fundamental. I can’t stress that enough.” Here, the IndieWire team shares their thoughts on why Yelchin stood out.

A Rare Screen Presence

Yelchin was the rare young actor to convey a plucky disposition while something gentler and melancholic lurked beneath the surface. As the energetic teen offspring of the troubled shrink on “Huff,” Yelchin was often the sole voice of reason in a sea of anxiety-riddled adults. While they grappled with middle-age, he was tasked with calling them on the pithy nature of their problems. »

Perhaps best known for playing Chekov in the new Star Trek movies, Yelchin provided people with a reason to seek out the cinema time after time with an impressive number of endearing and empathetic performances. First arriving on many fans’ radars with excellent work in »

‘Star Trek’ & ‘Green Room’ actor Anton Yelchin dies at 27 in accident

19 June 2016 12:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We are desperately sad to report that wonderful young man and actor, Anton Yelchin, has died in a freak car accident at 27 years of age.

It has been reported by TMZ, and numerous sources, that he was pinned by his own car that rolled into him and with it suffered fatal head and chest injuries.

Yelchin has been a sterling young talent who has definitely left a positive mark on everything we’ve seen him in. Starring as a young Chekov in Star Trek has been on his utter highlights but he’s also turned in first class performances in the likes of the Fright Night reboot, Odd Thomas, Only Lovers Left Alive, Like Crazy and Green Room, to name just a few.

The entire The Hollywood News family send their deepest sympathies to Anton’s family and friends at this difficult time.

R.I.P. Anton Yelchin 1989 – 2016.
