It's Time for the "Darkest Hour"

14 July 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. Remember a few short years ago when Gary Oldman, after decades of brilliance, was finally an Oscar nominee for Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy? Well, it looks like he could be prepping another go of awards season, but this time it might be for a performance that finds the actor on the unrecognizable side of his chameleonic abilities. The last time he had this level of makeup on we got his delicious and underrated Dracula, but now Oldman is donning some impressive prosthetics to play Winston Churchill in Joe Wright's period piece Darkest Hour.

Though Joe Wright's previous period work like Atonement and Anna Karenina have sparked with some inventive presentation, for the trailer this looks like a little bit more of the familiar. No matter, considering Oldman is firing on all cylinders for some juicy dramatics as the Prime Minister - the actor is definitely the show here. »

Watch Gary Oldman in Stirring First Trailer for Joe Wright's 'Darkest Hour'

13 July 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

As Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk prepares to launch into theaters next week, Joe Wright's Darkest Hour tells a different kind of true, British war story. Gary Oldman stars as Winston Churchill, who becomes prime minister of Great Britain and then is plunged immediately into a maelstrom of events as Nazi Germany threatens to invade the country. It's a role that demands a ferocious performance by Oldman and he is absolutely spellbinding in the just-released first trailer. He may be barely recognizable, but his electrifying spirit comes through. Watch the trailer below.   Directed by: Joe Wright, who has shown a fine, sweeping touch with historical dramas, such as Atonement, Pride & Prejudice and Anna Karenina. Written by: Anthony McCarten. He was...

Indie Film Invades the Emmys: Jean Marc-Vallée, Reed Morano and More Cinematic Voices Dominate

13 July 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

They say television is the new film, and that’s certainly true when you look at how many actors, directors, writers, cinematographers and more from the film world are counted among this year’s Emmy nominees. A majority of the biggest contenders, from “The Handmaid’s Tale” to “The Night Of,” “Big Little Lies” and “The Crown,” brought some of the best film talent to the small screen over the last year, and their work resulted in major recognition from the TV Academy.

Between stronger female roles and a directorial freedom studios don’t allow, TV is »

Gary Oldman Endures the ‘Darkest Hour’ in First Trailer for Joe Wright’s Winston Churchill Biopic

13 July 2017 7:11 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Fall is around the corner, which means an onslaught of biopics and every so often, one of them manages to break the mold. We’re hoping this is the case for Darkest Hour, a new Winston Churchill biopic — not to be confused with the other one this year — with Gary Oldman in the lead role in a wild transformation. Ahead of a likely festival premiere before a November release, Focus Features have now released the first trailer.

Directed by Atonement and Anna Karenina‘s Joe Wright, Oldman has certainly transformed into the British Prime Minister and we hope the script by Anthony McCarten is a few steps above his milquetoast work in The Theory of Everything. Also starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Stephen Dillane, Ronald Pickup, and Ben Mendelsohn, check out the trailer below.

A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, »

‘Darkest Hour’ Trailer: Gary Oldman Is Unrecognizable as Winston Churchill

13 July 2017 7:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Focus Features has released the first trailer for Atonement and Hanna director Joe Wright’s historical drama Darkest Hour. Scripted by Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything), the film stars a totally unrecognizable Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill and begins on the eve of World War II, chronicling Churchill’s difficult push to get England to stand up to Nazi Germany and enter the war rather than negotiate a treaty. This movie looks great. Admittedly, I'm a huge fan of Wright's—be it the bold theatricality of Anna Karenina or the fairy tale action of Hanna, the guy … »

Gary Oldman leads the new film from director Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Anna Karenina“) playing Winston Churchill, and the big question is whether or not he can make the iconic figure his own, particularly coming so hot on the heels of John Lithgow‘s great turn as the British Prime Minister on Netflix‘s “The Crown“.

‘Darkest Hour’ Trailer: Gary Oldman Shockingly Transforms Into Churchill For Oscar-Ready Biopic

13 July 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Winston Churchill is the hot ticket into the awards race right now. Following John Lithgow’s lauded turn as the Prime Minister of Great Britain in Netflix’s “The Crown,” for which he’s expected to earn an Emmy nomination, Gary Oldman is stepping into the politician’s shoes for Focus Features’ biopic “Darkest Hour,” and the role has all the makings of an Oscar contender. Historical figure? Check. Dramatic physical transformation? Check. Oldman was previously nominated for Best Actor in 2012 for “Tinker Tailor Solider Spy.”

The official synopsis reads: “Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: Exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, »

'Lady Macbeth' Review: Sex, Lies and Corsets – and One Jaw-Dropping Performance

12 July 2017 1:19 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

No need to brush up your Shakespeare to feel the thunderbolts coursing through Lady Macbeth. Florence Pugh, in a performance that will soon be legendary, is not playing the Scottish Queen who can't wash the blood off her hands. It's northern England where director William Oldroyd (in a sensational feature directing debut) has chosen to set his tale, adapted by playwright Alice Birch from an 1865 Russian novel by Nikolai Leskov called Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District.

Confused? Let Pugh be your guide – she'll grab you from Scene One. The 21-year-old British powerhouse plays Katherine, »

Karlovy Vary Film Review: ‘Lots of Kids, a Monkey and a Castle’

11 July 2017 10:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“This is not what people want to see in a film,” asserts Julita to her son, Gustavo Salmerón, who is filming her for what must be the umpteenth time over the course of 14 years. She waggles her finger, “I know what people like, and it’s not … this.” She’s wrong about that though, which is unusual for her. The indomitable, garrulous, fanciful septuagenarian Julita is many things — aggravating, mercurial, delightful, impossible — but she’s rarely wrong. As if to prove her so in this case, however, her son’s film, of which she is the undoubted star, took top prize in a strong Karlovy Vary documentary competition, having played to a rapturously approving response even during its press screening. Family history documentaries tend to be a bit of a hard sell, but “Lots of Kids, a Monkey and a Castle,” is destined to please crowds wherever it can find a foothold on the festival circuit, all »

Why Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner Are the Best Indie Producers in the World Right Now

10 July 2017 9:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Working Title producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, whose latest hit is Edgar Wright’s wheel-and-disc-spinning breakout “Baby Driver” (June 28, Sony), which has tracked $64 million worldwide to date.

Bottom Line: This brainy duo with plummy British accents have been turning out a consistent slate of smart global hits since the ’80s. The London-based co-chairmen of Working Title boast the best taste in the business. They chase mainstream quality fare. That’s their gig. But even so over the years, partnering with Universal Pictures, with freedom to greenlight movies up to $35 million, their films have grossed an impressive almost $7 billion dollars worldwide.

Career Peaks: From the start, Working Title founder Tim Bevan gravitated to local stories with global potential like “My Beautiful Laundrette,” Stephen Frears’ searing »

Jude Law Needs Fewer Soulless Blockbusters and More Iconoclasts Like Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The Young Pope’

19 June 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Jude Law, who’s always been hard to pin down, and his title role in HBO Emmy Contender “The Young Pope” is no exception. 

Bottom Line: As he embraces his mid-40s, Jude Law has morphed from British golden boy to globally bankable character actor. His range is wide, from tragic robot Gigolo Joe in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I.” to Robert Downey, Jr.’s comedy sidekick Dr. Watson in Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster “Sherlock Holmes” franchise. Still stunningly handsome, Law is gaining grit and gravitas as he gets older. But there’s a sense he’s still holding back.

Latest Misfires: Law took on evil power-monger Vortigern opposite Charlie Hunnam as Arthur in Ritchie’s attempt to similarly update “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, »
