Two new posters for Macbeth featuring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard

27 August 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Empire has debuted two new posters from director Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, both of which you can view right here…

See Also: Michael Fassbender and Paddy Considine featured in new images from Macbeth

Michael Fassbender (Shame) and Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night) star in the film, with Paddy Considine (Dead Man’s Shoes), Elizabeth Debicki (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), Sean Harris (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) and David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything) featuring in the cast.

Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of literature’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war torn Scotland.

Macbeth is out in the UK on October 2nd. »

Johnny Depp, Leo DiCaprio – Which acting contenders this year are most due for their first win?

26 August 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Of the many storylines that begin during awards season, few are usually as compelling as the ones centered around who’s most due for an Academy Award. I think that it’s usually pretty satisfying to see a former bridesmaid finally become a bride, as it were. As such, below I’ve made up a list of ten actors or actresses who’ve previously been nominated for Oscars but have yet to win one who are in contention this year. I’ve more or less ranked them by how due they are, and just to be fair, I’ve excluded anyone who has already won a prize elsewhere (sorry Matt Damon, for example), or any of the myriad contenders who are seeking their first ever nomination by the Academy. Take a look below and I hope you enjoy! Here now are the ten actors and actresses most due for their »

Steve McQueen's New BBC Series Details

26 August 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Shame" and "12 Years a Slave" writer/director Steve McQueen is coming to television with new details released by the BBC about his upcoming and still untitled six-part series for BBC1.

The event series will follow a West Indian community in the heart of London across three decades, beginning at the moment of Enoch Powell's notorious "rivers of blood" speech in 1968. It will show how their lives have been shaped by their own force of will despite an often hostile environment.

A restaurant in Ladbroke Grove called the Mangrove will serve in the story as a place of camaraderie and friendship that becomes a social heart for the community - and, over time, a flashpoint for resistance.

In a statement, McQueen says: "These stories are passionate, personal and unique. They are testimony to the truth of real lives and urgently need to be told. This is about a legacy which »

Set your sights on Hitman Agent: 47, starring Rupert Friend and Zachary Quinto

25 August 2015 12:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rupert Friend stars as the slick, suited assassin in the reboot of the hugely successful Hitman video game franchise.

“We wanted a fresh start and a brand new take on this iconic figure,” begins Alex Young, one of the producers behind the globe-trotting reboot Hitman: Agent 47.

This take on the infamous Hitman character, so recognisable for his black suit, red tie, and mysterious barcode tattoo from which he takes his name, aims to give new life to a character who was first seen on our screens back in 2007. In the first film, audiences saw the titular hero played by Timothy Olyphant. Replacing Olyphant in the reboot is Rupert Friend, best known for his role in the Emmy Award-winning Homeland, who is joined by Zachary Quinto, best-known for playing Sylar in Heroes and more recently in FX’s anthology series American Horror Story, who takes on the role of the sinister John Smith. »

Hitman: Agent 47 | Review

Hanna and Her Sisters: The Art of the Persistently Insipid Video Game Reboot

A tip of the hat to 20th Century Fox as they valiantly try to re-launch their failed video-game based franchise with a new chapter of risible artifice, Hitman: Agent 47, which follows the 2007 film Hitman. Recapitulated for a ‘new generation,’ or so it constantly confirms for us, perhaps it would have been beneficial to hire someone other than returning screenwriter Skip Woods for the treatment (who went on to pen franchise material like X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The A-Team, and A Good Day to Die Hard). Staunchly uninterested in providing even one moment of logical comprehension or stage anything resembling an original concept, this derivative slog of action sequences and B-movie tropes tiredly goes through the motions of narrative filmmaking but never quite reveals what the point seems to be.

Jumping immediately into a curdled stew of conventional Cold War espionage, »

Hey, did you hear the one about the ugly sex addict who can’t get laid? Of course you didn’t. We’ve got plenty of films and stories about sex addicts, with star-quality guys in the lead roles. (See: Sam Rockwell in Choke; Michael Fassbender in Shame; David Duchovny in Californication.)

Steve McQueen's Upcoming Video For Kanye West Was Shot As A Single 9-Minute Take

20 July 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this spring, it was revealed that "Shame" and "12 Years A Slave" helmer Steve McQueen had directed a music video for Kanye West's upcoming album, the currently titled Swish, and it has already screened at Paris Fashion Week. Now, the video is slated to make its stateside debut this weekend at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and a few more details have been revealed about the promo. The New York Times reports that the video runs 9-minutes long, and most intriguingly, it's done in a single-take as Yeezy "runs, crouches, dodges, raps, rants, sweats and pants, as if being pursued by the camera or the police or in pursuit himself, until he slumps against the wall to catch his breath." It would appear the mini-movie of sorts will feature two songs, "All Day" and "I Feel Like That," and basically, I can't wait to see it. McQueen »

New 'Suffragette' Poster Art Featuring Mulligan, Streep and Carter

14 July 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Suffragette from director Sarah Gavron arrives in NY and La on Oct. 23 and begins expanding nationwide over the following weeks after what will likely be a Fall film festival premiere where the feature will begin its awards campaign in earnest. Today, however, the first poster art for the film has arrived, promoting its three biggest names in Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep along with its message of "Mothers Daughters Rebels". Written by Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, Shame), the film tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to »

Michael Fassbender looks nothing like Steve Jobs: 7 actors who don't resemble real-life counterparts

2 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Say what you like about Ashton Kutcher's Jobs movie, but it did hold one ace up its sleeve that the Danny Boyle-directed biopic doesn't - an actor who actually resembles the character they're playing.

We take a look at a handful of stars who don't look anything like the real-life people they played.

1. Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs

As brilliant an actor as the Shame star is, it's clear from the trailers for Danny Boyle's biopic that little has been done to make Fassbender look like the man he's portraying. Ashton Kutcher has him beat in that department (as does Noah Wyle if you go all the way back to Pirates of Silicon Valley), but with the talent involved here we're expecting Steve Jobs to be a cut above Jobs.

Intriguingly, prior to Fassbender's casting Christian Bale was circling the role before bowing out due to worries »

New Projects: ‘The Birds’, ‘Monopoly’, and ‘Ashley’s War’

2 July 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Every time it feels like Hollywood has decided to remake a property that couldn’t be more sacred, they one up the ante. Michael Bay has been prepping a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s suspense/horror classic The Birds, and Variety reports that the project has now found its director: Dutch filmmaker Diederik Van Rooijen. Van Rooijen has directed the thrillers Tape and Daylight previously, but never a film in the English language.

Hitchcock’s film from 1963, arguably his last great movie and the story of how birds terrorized a small town in Northern California, has never been officially remade, but its influences are everywhere. Heck, even Jurassic World has a scene with pterodactyls worthy of Hitch.

No details on additional plot points or when production is expected to begin have yet been revealed.

So far the list of movies based on board games includes Clue, Battleship, Jumanji, and maybe someday, »

Suffragette Trailer Delivers a Hardcore, Explosive Battle for Women’s Rights

3 June 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Focus Features has released the full Suffragette trailer online. Written by Abi Morgan (Shame) and directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane), the film stars Carey Mulligan as a working-class women’s rights activist in the early days of the feminist movement. Half of the trailer is really good as it shows the hardcore fight for women’s rights, and then it lapses into an irritating trailer cliché. Can we stop with the latest trailer trend of sad, slower covers of pop songs? This is a film about women as “soldiers” in a serious fight for an important issue, and it feels like someone said, “Well, all the other trailers are putting in sad, slower covers of pop songs! Let’s do it for this one!” And that’s how you get the almost laughably bad moment of people running from explosions to Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide”. But that still isn »

Watch: First Trailer for 'Suffragette' Starring Carey Mulligan and Meryl Streep

3 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Focus has premiered the first trailer for Suffragette from director Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) and starring a fleet of who's who including Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Romola Garai, Ben Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff and, oh, yeah... Meryl Streep. Written by Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, Shame), the film tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality - their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, »

Sofia Coppola Drops Out of Directing Live Action 'Little Mermaid'

1 June 2015 2:10 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Citing "creative differences" (as always), Sofia Coppola has exited the director's chair on Universal's live action telling of Hans Christian Anderson's "The Little Mermaid". Coppola was first attached back in March 2014 when the first draft of the screenplay from Abi Morgan (Shame, Suffragate) followed by Kelly Marcel (Fifty Shades of Grey) was to be re-written by Caroline Thompson (Edward Scissorhands) and despite Coppola's departure, Universal still plans on moving forward with Thompson's latest draft. Joe Wright, whose Pan will be hitting theaters in October was actually once attached to this project, and I would bet Universal goes even more conventional than either Wright or Coppola once they finally settle on a director. Coppola seemed like an interesting fit to begin with, her style of filmmaking being anything but mainstream and considering the reported $150 million spent on Wright's Pan, if Universal is expecting to do anything similar I would expect »

Sofia Coppola Exits The Little Mermaid

1 June 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After coming aboard Universal and Working Title’s live-action retelling of classic fairy tale The Little Mermaid a year ago, Sofia Coppola has jumped ship on the project, Deadline reports.

As expected, “creative differences” are being cited as the reason for the departure, but it’s not hard to fill in the blanks there. Coppola, whose past films have included The Virgin SuicidesLost in TranslationSomewhere and The Bling Ring, is known for directing somber, decidedly adult dramas, and she likely had a very distinctive vision for what she wanted her take on the Hans Christian Andersen tale to look like.

Universal and Working Title likely couldn’t completely get behind Coppola’s ideas for the movie, which led to the rift between the director and the studios. That being said, The Little Mermaid is still very much a go, with Caroline Thompson (The Nightmare Before ChristmasEdward Scissorhands »

Sofia Coppola Exits Universal’s The Little Mermaid

1 June 2015 1:48 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s been over a year since we heard the news that Sofia Coppola would direct a new version of The Little Mermaid for Universal Pictures and Working Title, and we’ve heard pretty much nothing about the project since. Which makes today’s news kind of non-news: Deadline reports that Coppola has exited the project, citing creative differences. The Lost in Translation filmmaker had been tasked with crafting a new live-action take on the Hans Christian Anderson tale, but it appears that we won’t be seeing her vision after all. Per Variety, She and Universal differed when it came to casting Ariel. Coppola was keen on newcomer Maya Thurman Hawke, the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, but the studio was wary about the choice. Despite Coppola's exit, Universal and Working Title are still moving forward with the project, with Caroline Thompson (Edward Scissorhands) having penned the »

Sofia Coppola Exits 'The Little Mermaid'

1 June 2015 1:46 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a way, it seemed almost too good to be true. When Universal couldn't secure Joe Wright to direct their long brewing, live action take on "The Little Mermaid," they snagged Sofia Coppola. And it was a potentially promising endeavor, with Coppola making her first big studio picture, doing something unlike anything she's done before. But alas, it won't happen. Read More: Watch: Explore The Loneliness Of Sofia Coppola's Film With This Supercut Deadline reports that Coppola has exited the movie over, you guessed it, "creative differences." The movie has had a few different pens on it so far, with Abi Morgan ("Shame") and Kelly Marcel ("Fifty Shades Of Grey") previously tackling it, and Caroline Thompson's ("Edward Scissorhands," "The Nightmare Before Christmas") rewrite looking like the one that will stick. But even with Coppola's departure, the project isn't dead, with Universal apparently »

Sofia Coppola Won't Direct 'The Little Mermaid' After All

1 June 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Turns out Sofia Coppola didn't want to be part of Ariel's world after all: The director has dropped out of the long-gestating live-action version of "The Little Mermaid."

According to Deadline, Coppola and studio Universal just had too many creative differences over the film, based on the classic Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, and the director decided to exit the project. But Universal is pressing on, and writer Caroline Thompson will take another pass at the screenplay, which has already received several rewrites from Kelly Marcel ("Fifty Shades of Grey") and Abi Morgan ("Shame").

Coppola isn't the only high-profile director to pass on the production: Joe Wright was also at one time interested in helming the flick, but a deal never materialized. And sadly, this means that a reunion between the "Bling Ring" director and her star, Emma Watson, won't happen either.

Based on the talent that the flick is trying to attract, »
