Grace of Monaco Review

6 June 2014 4:31 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Charting a year of her marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco, Nicole Kidman steps into the very expensive shoes of Grace Kelly in a movie that wants to capture the real life fairytale the actress lived (I know this, because they mentioned she was living a fairy tale about fifty times). Set in 1962, the same year Rainier (Tim Roth) clashed with France over tax law, it tries to delve into the drama of the obvious culture clash Grace experienced, but instead delivers an absolute shambles of a film, choking us with melodrama until we pass out. Grace of Monaco kicks off with a title card tellings us this is a fictionalised account of real life events. That should tell you all you need to know about the movie really, clumsily shoehorning Grace into proceedings in the most eye rolling way possible. Now, I don't claim to know the ins »

Angelina Jolie’s fresh approach to Sleeping Beauty holds its lead on its second week of release.

Maleficent, Disney’s live action reimagining of the Sleeping Beauty tale, has dominated online movie buzz in the UK over the past week.

According to Way To Blue’s UK Movie Buzz Chart, the Angelina Jolie feature generated 25,172 comments on social media, with 6,890 of those expressing an intent to view.

This was leagues ahead of comedy sequel 22 Jump Street, which opens this week and generated 10,661 comments of which 5,645 had intent to view.

Seth Macfarlane comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West and Tom Cruise actioner Edge of Tomorrow both commanded strong levels of comment, topping the 7,000 mark.

But Cannes opener Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, which opens in the UK this week could only manage 517 comments – and just 156 of those expressed intent to view.

Tim Roth: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

6 June 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

It’s easy to forget about Tim Roth until he suddenly pops up in something and reminds you as to how immensely talented he actually is. Still perhaps best known today for his work with Quentin Tarantino on both the still insanely popular films Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction (in which he played two very important roles, no less), Roth also came to mainstream attention whilst appearing on the now-cancelled TV show Lie To Me.

As one of Britain’s most acclaimed acting talents, the beauty of Tim Roth stems from the fact that you can put him just about anywhere and he’ll thrive: in a secondary role or as a leading man, he’s perfectly capable in equal measure; indeed, Roth has proven time and time again that he can’t be pigeon-holed. You’re just as likely to find him in a massive blockbuster as you are an indie gem. »

China and India Start Dialogue on Film

5 June 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong – China and India, two of the world’s biggest movie-producing countries, have begun tentative talks on film industry co-operation.

This week a Chinese delegation led by Jiang Jianguo, vice minister at the State Administration for Press, Publicity, Radio, Film & TV (Sapprft), met India’s new secretary for Information and Broadcasting Bimal Julka in New Delhi, ahead of a series of meetings with Indian film industry leaders in Mumbai.

The two giant neighbors have significant amounts of trade in goods and services, but in the entertainment and media sectors interaction is close to zero.

The occasional border skirmishes and the always delicate diplomatic relations between Indian and Chinese governments may have meant that cultural connections have not been able to flourish. But with China seen as the world’s next superpower and India now operating under a new government, albeit a Hindu nationalist one, change is in the air. »

Grace Of Monaco, film review: Creaky and at times risible, but Kidman saves the day

5 June 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Grace of Monaco is a cursed project. Before it was even finished, material was destroyed in the labs, requiring reshooting. Then, there was the well-publicised spat between the Us distributors and the French producers over the final cut. Princess Grace's relatives were unhappy about the biopic, which was almost universally lambasted when it opened the Cannes Festival. It may seem strange to defend Grace when its own actors are distancing themselves from its likely commercial failure but, taken as old-fashioned, star-driven melodrama, the film has some very strong elements. There is a real febrile intensity to Nicole Kidman's long-suffering princess that rekindles memories of the performances you would find in Marlene Dietrich or Greta Garbo movies. »

Nicole Kidman's Grace of Monaco turns down Alfred Hitchcock - watch

5 June 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Nicole Kidman's performance as actress-turned-royal Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco prompted plenty of attention.

In this clip from the film, Kidman's Grace turns down an approach from Alfred Hitchcock (Roger Ashton-Griffiths) to return to the silver screen to play the title role of Margaret 'Marnie' Edgar.

Kelly's rejection meant that Hitchcock briefly shelved the project to work on The Birds, where he gave Tippi Hedren her screen debut

When he returned to Marnie a year later, he opted to keep his leading blonde, who starred opposite "some Scottish fellow" that Cubby Broccoli was raving about.

TIm Roth Joins Martin Luther King Jr. Project ‘Selma’

4 June 2014 11:06 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Tim Roth will return in a period drama after his role in Grace Of Monaco by starring in Selma, a film which recounts the events of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.’s march from Selma to Montgomery. Roth will take the part of George Wallace, a governor who believed in and supported segregation. Wallace would eventually denounce segregation and became “the most influential loser” in U.S. politics after four unsuccessful campaigns to become president.

The cast already includes David Oyelowo as Dr. King and Tom Wilkinson as President Lyndon Johnson. If the cast sounds as though it’s a bit too British though, support comes in the form of Cuba Gooding Jr. and Common. Reading up on Wallace, it appears he had a very interesting history himself and perhaps deserves his own film. Selma has been in production for quite some time now, going back to at »

Watch: Nicole Kidman Meets Alfred Hitchcock In 3 Clips From 'Grace Of Monaco'

4 June 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In our rundown of The 6 Most Unintentionally Hilarious Moments From Cannes Opener "Grace Of Monaco," Jessica Kiang noted the appearance of Alfred Hitchcock, as played by Roger Ashton-Griffiths, as one of them. "He’s Hitchcock, see, so obviously he’ll never manage to get through a single sentence without shoehorning in a reference to one of his films, or some sort of life lesson delivered as an opaque nod to the craft of filmmaking," she wrote and in this new clip from the movie, you can sorta see what she means. International distributors Warner Bros. have dropped a handful of new scenes from the movie, and while critics were quite hard on the film, it doesn't quite look a disaster (though it still doesn't look very good other). We get a sequence between Kidman's Grace Kelly and her (as our review describes it) "Catholic sensei" as played by Frank Langella. »

Maleficent casts a spell on the UK box office

4 June 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday May 30th to Sunday June 1st 2014…

Angelina Jolie returned to screens this past weekend as the Mistress of All Evil in Disney’s live-action fairy tale Maleficent, with the film pulling in a solid £6,590,071  (including £2.77 million of Wednesday and Thursday previews) to claim first place in the chart with the fifth biggest debut of the year so far. That’s an improvement on recent fairy tale-inspired movies Snow White and the Huntsman (£3.6 million) and Mirror Mirror (£2.4 million), as well as Disney’s own Oz the Great and Powerful (£3.7 million).

Unlike Maleficent, the week’s two other big releases struggled to make much of an impact, with the Tom Cruise-headlined sci-fi Edge of Tomorrow taking third with £1,886,096 despite strong reviews, and Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West earning £1,240,465 to finish up in fourth. »

Tim Roth Snags Role In Martin Luther King Film Selma

4 June 2014 6:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Straight off the back of playing Prince Rainer III in the Cannes-selected period piece Grace of Monaco, Quentin Tarantino favorite Tim Roth is set to appear in another historical drama in the form of Selma.

In the film, which is about the civil rights movement in the sixties and Martin Luther King Jr.’s stand against racism, Roth will play Alabama governor George Wallace, whose opposition to King led to the famous 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery. The picture is being produced by Paramount and helmed by the filmmaker Ava DuVernay, who has worked on projects such as The Middle of Nowhere and The Help. David Oyelowo, who also appeared in Steven Spielberg’s civil rights epic Lincoln, will star as Martin Luther King Jr., and long-time acting heavyweight Tom Wilkinson will play President Lyndon Johnson.

Roth’s involvement in the project is sure to bring a smile to anybody »

Tim Roth joins Martin Luther King biopic Selma

4 June 2014 1:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tim Roth has been cast in Selma.

The actor will play Alabama governor George Wallace in the Martin Luther King Jr biopic, reports Deadline.

David Oyelowo will play King in director Ava DuVernay's Paramount Pictures film, with Tom Wilkinson as President Lyndon B Johnson.

Wallace was a supporter of racial segregation, whose bullying tactics led King to organise the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery.

The events spurred Johnson to his famous statement that formed the foundation of the Civil Rights Act.

Roth was most recently seen in Nicole Kidman's poorly-received Grace of Monaco.

Selma is yet to announce a release date. »

Martin Luther King Jr. Biopic 'Selma' Adds Tim Roth

3 June 2014 8:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tim Roth has signed on to join the growing cast of Selma, portraying the Alabama governor George Wallace.

The plot centers on the historic march from Selma, Alabama to the state capitol in Montgomery, lead by civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo). When the march was first organized, Governor Wallace, who was in favor of segregation, vowed to stop it. After the first wave of marchers were beaten by his Alabama state troopers, protesters of all races came flooding into the region, which ultimately lead to President Lyndon B. Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Civil Rights Act, which gave African-Americans the right to vote.

Carmen Ejogo, Andre Holland, Omar J. Dorsey, Tessa Thompson and Colman Domingo round out the supporting cast of this historical period piece.

Tim Roth To Play Alabama Governor George Wallace In Mlk Pic ‘Selma’

3 June 2014 4:26 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: After playing Monaco’s Prince Rainer III in the Cannes opening-night film Grace Of Monaco, Tim Roth will play another period figure in a major feature. He’s signing on to the cast of Selma, and he will be playing George Wallace, the Alabama governor who favored segregation and whose bullying tactics galvanized Martin Luther King Jr and the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery. The Ava DuVernay-directed film for Paramount is shaping up with a strong cast that includes David Oyelowo as Dr. King and Tom Wilkinson is President Lyndon Johnson. Wallace turned out to be a key player in the proceedings, though it hardly ended up like he hoped it would. He vowed to stop the march, and when the first wave of protesters turned up, they were brutally beaten by Wallace’s Alabama State Troopers. This created national outrage, and protesters white and black began arriving from all over the country. »

Film Review: 'Grace of Monaco'

3 June 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★☆☆☆☆The much-maligned opening film of this year's Cannes Film Festival was the geographically apposite Grace of Monaco (2014), starring Nicole Kidman as the Philadelphia-born Hollywood actress who married a prince. The film begins with a quote from Grace Kelly herself: "The idea of my life as a fairytale is itself a fairytale." Anyone hoping for a curative dose of reality has been sadly misled. The film isn't just bad - it's awful - ineptly directed (Olivier Dahan), terribly written (Arash Amel) and bafflingly acted by an assortment of miscast faces. Tim Roth has never been an actor of broad range, but his Prince Rainier III is simply Tim Roth wearing a pair of spectacles and an appropriate moustache.
