See This/Skip That: From The Best Man Holiday to Nebraska

15 November 2013 10:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

All the fellas are back in The Best Man Holiday, which, People's critics say, should please the crowds. But the real winner is Bruce Dern in a hidden gem called Nebraska. Here's what to see and what to skip at the movies this weekend. See This The Best Man Holiday The Best Man? Why be so singular? This movie is all about the men, plural, from Taye Diggs and Terrence Howard to Morris Chestnut and Harold Perrineau. (And let's not dismiss the super-strong female cast, from Sanaa Lathan to Nia Long.) Fans of the 1999 original will be delighted that the »

No Awards Hopes for Mike Newell's 'Great Expectations' Adaptation?

13 November 2013 12:47 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Much like the latest version of Romeo & Juliet slunk into theaters last month with barely a mention (and was gone just as quick), this past weekend a new incarnation of Great Expectations hit screens, but you'd barely know it (the poor box office only further proves that point). Yes, despite some solid reviews, a highly regarded filmmaker at the helm in Mike Newell, and Oscar nominees like Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes in the cast, virtually no one is aware the movie is coming, which in turn, cripples its awards chances. Why is it getting the same fate as other Oscar non-starters we've discussed like The Counselor and Diana, instead of being in the mix for awards season? There's a reasonable explanation. More below! Basically, the situation that Great Expectations finds itself in is the same one that countless other films find themselves in as well. Essentially, they're quality »

First images from Hammer’s ‘The Woman in Black: Angel of Death’

8 November 2013 3:50 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The Woman in Black: Angel of Death stars Phoebe Fox in her first leading role in a feature film, having previously worked with Tom Harper on War Book. Fox is joined by Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Great Expectations, The Railway Man), the award-winning Helen McCrory (Skyfall, Hugo, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows) and rising star Oaklee Pendergast (The Impossible).

The Woman in Black: Angel Of Death continues the original film’s story: four decades have passed since Arthur Kipps, as played by Daniel Radcliffe, travelled to Eel Marsh House – and now, a group of children are evacuated with their teachers from the perils of Blitz-era London. The group soon awakens Eel Marsh House’s darkest inhabitant.

Directed by Tom Harper (The Scouting Book For Boys, War Book, ‘Peaky Blinders’), the screenplay by Jon Croker (Desert Dancer) is based on an original story outline by Susan Hill, author of The Woman in Black. »

Film Reviews: Opening This Week (Nov. 4-8, 2013)

7 November 2013 11:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Thor: The Dark World

Distributor: Disney

Early on in “Thor: The Dark World,” the latest slab of briskly amusing, elaborately inconsequential 3D entertainment from the Disney/Marvel comicbook factory, an evil Dark Elf announces his sinister plan to “unleash the Aether.” What sounds at first like an arcane euphemism for breaking wind turns out to be just another way of stating what you probably already suspected: The megalomaniac of the month is about to activate the latest all-powerful weapon capable of triggering mass annihilation, necessitating yet another intervention by a popular superhero and his ragtag band of sidekicks. Still, as helmed by Alan Taylor, this robust, impersonal visual-effects showpiece proves buoyant and unpretentious enough to offset its stew of otherwise derivative fantasy/action elements.

Foyle’s War Set 7 DVD Review And Giveaway

10 October 2013 10:10 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Foyle’s War Set 7 is a treat for fans of the long-running series, but a possible sour note as well, as our titular investigator actually moves outside the titular conflict. We not only move outside the setting of the show, but into a new world of Foyle’s efforts, and apparently a new theory of the character as well. Call it progress, I suppose, but some fans may find themselves in for a surprise when taking on this new Foyle.

What started out as a very interesting look at an investigator of unusual calm working in a backdrop of World War II outside the normal focus of the war, has now gone post-War, and sees our hero pressed into service with MI5. From not exactly police to not exactly spy, Foyle finds himself involved in ever more curious exploits which leaves us with little remaining familiar except the star and the title. »

24 September 2013 11:51 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It may not hit theatres until 2015, but Walt Disney Pictures is giving us a first look at their upcoming live-action version of the classic fairy tale.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring relative unknown Lily James ("Downton Abbey", Wrath of the Titans), the production began filming yesterday at London's Pinewood Studios in London.

The film is also set to star Cate Blanchett as her wicked stepmother, Helena Bonham Carter as her off-kilter (naturally) fairy godmother, and Richard Madden ("Game of Thrones") as her very handsome and aptly-named Prince Charming. Frequent Branagh collaborator Derek Jacobi is on-board here as the King and Holliday Grainger ("Great Expectations," "Anna Karenina") and Sophie McShera ("Downton Abbey) are along for the ride as the infamous stepsisters Anastasia and Drisella. »
