‘Fantastic Beasts 2’ Director Denies Franchise Hides Dumbledore Being Gay, Teases ‘Sensual’ Scenes With Grindelwald
David Yates is clearing up the mystery surrounding the depiction of Dumbledore as a gay man in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise. The filmmaker spoke about the matter with Empire Magazine (via Advocate) and confirmed that Dumbledore is not “out as a gay man” in the upcoming sequel, “The Crimes of Grindelwald.” However, Yates said he does not intent to conceal Dumbledore’s sexuality in these films.

“This part of this huge narrative that [J.K. Rowling] is creating doesn’t focus on his sexuality, but we’re not airbrushing or hiding it,” Yates said “The story [of the romantic relationship] isn’t there in this particular movie, but it’s clear in what you see…that he is gay.”

Yates added, “A couple of scenes we shot are very sensual moments of him and the young Grindelwald.”

Film Review: ‘King of Thieves’

Film Review: ‘King of Thieves’
Nobody has as much energy as they used to in “King of Thieves,” which is partly the point. James Marsh’s true-crime heist movie is built around two remarkably high figures: first, the £14 million value of the loot, making the burglary in question the largest in British legal history, and more crucially, the average age of the culprits, almost all of whom were veteran criminals well into retirement.

The Hatton Garden jewelry heist made international headlines in 2015, but could have been a story dreamed up in Ealing Studios’ midcentury prime: A Vanity Fair article on which this film is based was even titled “The Over-the-Hill Mob.” Small wonder, then, that British film producers have been swift to jump on it. Yet this proficiently polished thriller (the second big-screen treatment of the story in two years) seems to feel a creak in its own joints: Torn between jaunty genre hijinks and a bleaker streak of realism,

Tiff Review: ‘The Death and Life of John F. Donovan’ is an Ambitious Undertaking in Service of Pure Vanity

For all his stylistic faults, French-Canadian film festival darling Xavier Dolan has never lacked confidence. From his personal and intimately-scaled debut I Killed My Mother to his most recent misfire of oppressively shouted cinema It’s Only the End of the World, Dolan has never struggled to express himself. The value of some of those expressions aside, his melodramas are typically narratively and stylistically self-assured; featuring people feeling things and then yelling about them at each other in close-up followed by slow-motion montages set to pop music that are either melancholic or cathartic depending on what part of the story we’re in. And they do seem to work for people, especially those of a certain age (myself included) that can relate to blasting 90s alt-rock in your room because you’re mad at your mom.

Premiere Interviews: Michael Caine, Ray Winstone, Jim Broadbent & more for King of Thieves

James Marsh’s film on the real life true events of the Hatton Garden Robbery, King of Thieves, is here. It stars Sir Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon, Tom Courtenay, Jim Broadbent, Ray Winstone, Francesca Annis and Paul Whitehouse.

We were on the red carpet yesterday to talk to this magnificent cast about working together, what inspired them to be a part of the film, and you get to see Paul Whitehouse do a Michael Caine impression directly to the man himself. It was chaos. And Francesca Annis wants to play the grandmother to the universe in Denis Villenueve’s adaptation of Dune.

Colin Hart and Scott Davis were our diamond geezers on the red carpet, here’s how they got on.

Movie Review – King of Thieves (2018)

King of Thieves, 2018.

Directed by James Marsh.

Starring Michael Caine, Jim Broadbent, Tom Courtenay, Ray Winstone, Charlie Cox, Paul Whitehouse and Michael Gambon.

Synopsis:

A gang of ageing crooks decide to crack a job they’ve all been wanting to carry out for years – an Easter weekend burglary of the Hatton Garden safe deposit facility.

“The problem with gold is the effect it has on people,” says Michael Caine’s seasoned thief Brian Reader at the beginning of King of Thieves, as if foreshadowing the rather shaky and unfocused movie that lies ahead. This film finally marks the glossy, wide-release take on the £200m Hatton Garden burglary that took place in 2015. The heist has provoked its own cottage industry of low-budget independent films, thanks to its status as one of the biggest burglaries in British history, but this is the big one. They got Michael Caine, after all.

And things start promisingly for this one.

Michael Caine joins Ben Foster in Medieval

Last month it was announced that Ben Foster (Hell or High Water) is set to lead the cast of director Petr Jakl’s (Ghoul) action drama Medieval, and now Deadline has revealed that screen legend Michael Caine has signed on to the project.

The film will see Foster as the legendary 15th century Czech warlord and national hero Jan Zizka of Trocnov, while Caine will play Lord Boresh, the right hand to the Czech King Wenceslaus IV.

“It’s been a dream of mine to make film with Michael Caine since I first started working in the business,” said producer Cassian Elwes (Mudbound). “Now this dream has come true and I couldn’t be more excited. He’s a living legend.”

Caine will be seen this month in the British crime caper King of Thieves, where he stars alongside Jim Broadbent, Tom Courtenay, Charlie Cox, Paul Whitehouse, Michael Gambon and Ray Winstone.

2018 Toronto Market: Ripe With Packages And, Oh Yeah, Those Festival Films

  • Deadline
Telluride is over and Venice is ebbing, where festival fever gripped journalists to the point it seemed like every movie that played there will win Best Picture. Now it’s Toronto’s turn to fall in love with awards season launches, and there is an acquisitions market going on that will see some big deals, though most likely not for films playing in the festival. Speculation about a tepid market hasn’t factored the volume of promo reels and script stage packages being shown to an inordinately high volume of studio brass here to launch awards films. This adds to all the general awards season buzz, which is focusing on whether Netflix gives Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma a theatrical berth wide enough to allay those voters who’ve marginalized past entries from the streamer. That discussion should heat by the time Cuaron’s film bows Monday. It is a real contender,

Movie Review – King of Thieves (2018)

King of Thieves, 2018.

Directed by James Marsh.

Starring Michael Caine, Jim Broadbent, Tom Courtenay, Charlie Cox, Paul Whitehouse, Michael Gambon and Ray Winstone.

Synopsis:

A crew of retired crooks pull off a major heist in London’s jewellery district.

Though the famed Hatton Garden safe deposit burglary only took place back in April of 2015, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was far longer ago, what with this new dramatisation from James Marsh being already the third movie to take a stab at the material.

By far the best-produced of the three films, boasting an A-list cast and name director (The Theory of Everything‘s James Marsh), King of Thieves may be a disappointingly meat-and-potatoes retelling of the fascinating heist, but thanks to its gamely committed performers, it’s a lightly enjoyable ride for the most part. Sometimes that’s enough.

King of Thieves Review

  • HeyUGuys
Lovable British rogues have enthralled cinema goers for the better part of a century in classic London crime capers like Brighton Rock, The Lavender Hill Mob, The Italian Job and The Long Good Friday, through to McVicar, Lock Stock, Sexy Beast and Legend (2015). Even when brandishing knuckle dusters, plotting to off little old ladies, threatening to shit the Ira or taking their shirts off (cas they’re “sweating like a c*%t”), these antiheroes have made a massive mark in cinema over the decades. Despite being synonymous with heist movies they are arguably a genre unto themselves yet, but while the widespread affection remains, there hasn’t been a truly memorable cockney/ London crime film or character for quite some time.

In 2015, the infamous Hatton Garden robbery, in which £200 million’s worth of cash and jewels were stolen from safety deposit boxes, provided film producers with the basis for a fresh and relevant take.

Here’s Why Hogwarts Is Returning In Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald

With Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them set in New York, the fan favorite Wizarding World setting of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was nowhere to be seen. For the upcoming sequel, though, The Crimes of Grindelwald, the action will return to Europe as Newt Scamander and co. travel to Paris. What’s more, a flashback to Eddie Redmayne’s character’s past will reintroduce Harry Potter’s beloved school to the franchise.

While speaking with CinemaBlend during a press visit in London, producer David Heyman was asked why it was decided to bring Hogwarts back for the second film in the series. He explained that it was just a natural development of including a younger version of Albus Dumbledore, as played by Jude Law, and even teased when we can expect to see the establishment’s cameo in the movie.

“It was something that evolved in the developing process.

Movie Review – The Last Witness (2018)

The Last Witness, 2018.

Directed by Piotr Szkopiak.

Starring Alex Pettyfer, Talulah Riley, Robert Wieckiewicz, Will Thorp, Gwilym Lee, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, and Michael Gambon.

Synopsis:

Journalist Stephen Underwood uncovers a conspiracy on an international scale – the Katyn massacre – when he begins investigating the unusually high rate of suicides among Polish veterans resettled in England after the Second World War.

From the writing team of Paul Szambowski and Piotr Szkopiak, and directed by Szkopiak, comes The Last Witness, a film examining the cover-up of the 1940 Katyn massacre in Poland. For years, Allied forces were reluctant to publicly blame the Soviet Union for the murder of up to 22,000 Polish officers following Nazi Germany’s invasion of Poland from the west and Soviet occupation in the east, lest tensions flare again (and further) in the aftermath of World War Two.

The Last Witness takes place in England’s West Country in 1947, where local journalist
