Third Person review: Impressive cast, disappointing result

16 November 2014 10:26 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Paul Haggis; Screenwriter: Paul Haggis; Starring: Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Maria Bello, Kim Basinger; Running time: 137 mins; Certificate: 15

An intricately constructed tale of three interwoven stories spanning three cities, Third Person suffers from a script that fails to hook you in during its opening section and drags on without sufficient emotional connection for 137 minutes. There are sporadic moments when the movie sparks into life, particularly in two-hander scenes featuring blistering dialogue and stark revelations. Yet these standalone scenes aren't sufficient to salvage the movie as a whole.

Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde excel in their respective roles as an experienced writer and his lover (an aspiring writer) who can't form a secure bond due to psychological baggage. Their romantic intrigue is laced with sexual tension and played out particularly well, with the self-conscious dialogue managing the rare feat of working well because of these characters' literary background. »

Third Person Review

12 November 2014 2:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Paul Haggis

Cast: Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody, Maria Bello, James Franco, Mila Kunis

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 213 minutes

Synopsis: Third Person tells the interconnecting stories of three couple’s relationships; (Neeson) an award-winning author has just left his wife and is shacked up with his young adulteress (Wilde), (Brody) finds himself involved in a kidnapping drama in Italy, whilst (Kunis) is an ex-soap actress trying to regain custody of her young son.

Those expecting a sweet and sugary romantic drama obviously don’t know Paul Hagis. The mind behind Crash and Million Dollar Baby obviously wasn’t going to produce anything that the audience could just ‘switch off and watch’. Third Person instead challenges the viewer to digest a multitude of tough topics.

What helps Third Person stand out from the rest is the way in which the ensemble cast all rally together to produce something magical. Each »

Interstellar tops the UK box office in its opening weekend

12 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 7th to Sunday 2nd November 2014…

Interstellar may have failed to top the U.S. box office chart, losing out to Disney’s Big Hero 6, but it had no such competition here in the U.K., with the sci-fi epic debuting in first place with £5,378,220 and giving director Christopher Nolan his fourth-biggest opening on these shores after The Dark Knight Rises, The Dark Knight and Inception.

Interstellar was the only newcomer to crack the top ten this past weekend, but Mike Leigh’s latest Mr Turner enjoyed a solid second weekend, climbing up to second place from its seventh-placed opening last week and pushing its total gross to £2.6 million, overtaking Vera Drake to give Leigh his highest-grossing film to date.

Number one this time last year: Gravity

1. Interstellar – £5,378,220 weekend (New)

2. Mr Turner – £1,014,433 weekend (2 weeks)

3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles »

Olivia Wilde and Luke Evans Team Up for 'Free Fire'

24 October 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Luke Evans, Olivia Wilde, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy and Michael Smiley have signed on to star in Free Fire, the latest from British filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, A Field in England).

The story is set in 1978 Boston, following a woman named Justine (Olivia Wilde) who has set up a meeting between two Irishmen (Cillian Murphy and Michael Smiley) and a gang lead by Luke Evans and Armie Hammer for an arms deal. When shots are fired before the deal is made, the meeting turns into a deadly game of survival.

Here's what director Ben Wheatley had to say about Free Fire in a statement.

"The idea for Free Fire came from my love of hard-boiled crime movies; from The Asphalt Jungle, The Big Sleep, The Killing and 'The Big Combo' through The Driver, Le Samourai and The French Connection, to the modern cycle of Goodfellas, Goodfellas, Hard Boiled and Reservoir Dogs. »

'The Nice Guys' Casts Kim Basinger as the Chief Justice

21 October 2014 8:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Kim Basinger has signed on to reunite with her L.A. Confidential co-star Russell Crowe in another crime noir thriller, The Nice Guys.

The story centers on a private detective (Ryan Gosling) who teams up with an ex-boxer turned hired muscle (Russell Crowe) to find a young girl who has gone missing in 1970s Los Angeles, and to solve the murder of a porn star, as they discover the two cases may be related. Kim Basinger is playing the chief justice who has mysterious interests at play. We reported yesterday that Beau Knapp and Keith David are playing the villains, with White Collar and Magic Mike star Matthew Bomer also joining the cast in an unspecified role.

Shane Black (Iron Man 3) is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi. Joel Silver and Ken Kao are producing, with Hal Sadoff and Michael Malone serving as executive producers. It »

What Did You Watch This Weekend?

29 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid) and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend. My sole theatrical outing this weekend was for the ensemble comedic/drama This Is Where I Leave You, and while most folks have been pretty harsh on it I actually found it to be okay. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not great and is probably better suited for a home video watch, but the cast — including Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Kathryn Hahn, Timothy Olyphant, Dax Shepard and Ben Schwartz — do fine work with slight material. The plot contrivances grow tiresome, but there’s enough humor and heart here to warrant a watch »

Pregnant Mila Kunis Goes Shopping as Ashton Kutcher Tweets a "Nesting" Picture From Set

25 September 2014 4:25 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What more do Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher need? The pregnant Third Person star ran errands Wednesday afternoon, starting with visiting a carwash in L.A. Afterward, Kunis—wearing a striped tank top, distressed denim and flip flops—went shopping at Target. A female friend pushed a shopping cart, which appeared to be filled with clothing. It's unknown if Kunis purchased anything, although it appears she and Ashton Kutcher are ready for their baby girl's arrival. Later that night, Kutcher tweeted a picture from the set of CBS' Two and a Half Men. "Nesting.... Too much?" he asked. Multiple toys were displayed in the photo, including two battery-powered cars, two arcade games and a slide. »

A Walk Among The Tombstones – The Review

18 September 2014 8:24 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

After an unsuccessful comedy (A Million Ways To Die In The West) and drama (Third Person), Liam Neeson is back in full Taken (that unexpected 2008 hit that made this greying screen vet a full-fledged action hero) mode. There’s a couple of twists for this go-around. He’s not out to rescue a loved one from kidnappers, but is hired to track down somebody that’s grabbing up victims for ransom. Now like Non-stop from early this year, he’s a haunted fella’ who’s battling the bottle (in the former flick he was still imbibing, while now he’s in full program). But he’s not on a plane or dashing around exotic locales. He’s trudging the gritty, and often soggy, mean streets of Manhattan. Interestingly he’s playing a character we’ve seen on screen before, way back in 1986 it was Jeff Bridges in 8 Million Ways To Die. »

Venice: Riccardo Scamarcio to Star in, Produce ‘Pericles the Black Man’

30 August 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Italian A-list actor-turned-producer Riccardo Scamarcio will shepherd and star in “Pericle il Nero” (“Pericles the Black Man”), a noir based on the eponymous Italo cult novel by Giuseppe Farrandino, published in France by the Gallimard Noir imprint.

Long-gestating pic – which at one point Abel Ferrara was attached to direct – will be helmed by Stefano Mordini, whose “Steel” was in Venice Days in 2012. Scamarcio will play the title role, Pericle, a slave-like hit-man who gains self-awareness and freedom from the shackles of the mob world after meeting a woman.

While the book is set in Naples and Pescara, the film will transpose the narrative mainly to Brussels.

“Naples is being done to death in Italian movies these days, so we are transposing it to a more aseptic setting,” said Scamarcio.

His most recent role is playing a mad Italian chef alongside protag Bradley Cooper in the untitled John Wells project currently shooting in London, »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For – The Review

21 August 2014 4:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s belated follow-up to the most visually inventive comic book adaptation to make its way to a movie screen, is black and white and red all over. There’s plenty of blood in the sequel, either represented as the color of fresh snow or its natural red. Stark monochrome with the occasional color splash of blood, fire or lipstick is the hallmark of the ultimate town without pity, which comes roaring back to life in this superb follow-up that serves as a sequel and prequel at the same time. Characters that died are back while earlier incidents serve as motivation. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For presents new characters and old ones played by different actors. But the film’s look and artistry and the barn-burning 3D mayhem is so exhilarating that one quickly forgives its lack »
