Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones Reunited in First Look at Amazon’s ‘Aeronauts’

Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones Reunited in First Look at Amazon’s ‘Aeronauts’
Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones are reunited in the first-look image for Amazon Studios’ “The Aeronauts,” which began shooting in the U.K. this week. The two British stars previously worked together in James Marsh’s “The Theory of Everything,” for which Redmayne won the Oscar for best actor while Jones was nominated for best actress.

According to producers, the first-look image was taken with the film’s two lead performers 2,000 feet in the air. “We’re fortunate that Felicity and Eddie have the nerve to do these stunts themselves as it authenticates our entire approach,” said producer Todd Lieberman.

Lieberman says authenticity is a top priority for “Aeronauts.” “We intend to do as much balloon filming in the sky as the weather will allow. The image was taken after we launched Felicity and Eddie 2,000 feet in the air, performing their scripted scene, while a helicopter captured it all,” said Lieberman.

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’: Meet the Year’s Most Overqualified Supporting Cast

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’: Meet the Year’s Most Overqualified Supporting Cast
[Note: Some light spoilers for “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” below.]

Yes, the dinosaurs are back. So are human leads Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt). Even the battered island of Isla Nubar is still standing (sort of). But as J.A. Bayona’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” unfolds, the second film in the second trilogy about dinos run amok adds in a slew of new supporting characters, all the better to populate a fast-expanding franchise.

But these “Jurassic” newbies aren’t a bunch of random additions to the genetically modified series, but a compelling batch of established and rising stars, amounting to what just might be the most overqualified supporting cast of any of this summer’s blockbusters. When James Cromwell is billed sixth in a cast, you’ve got some deep talent. Add Ted Levine disappearing into a nutty turn as an exceedingly stupid mercenary, and you know there’s been some careful

Atrium TV announces new dramas from Michael Douglas, Ava DuVernay and more

Deadline is reporting that Atrium TV has announced four new high-end dramas in development from Michael Douglas, Ava DuVernay, The Wire creator David Simon and Hartswood Films, the company behind Sherlock.

First up is the Michael Douglas-produced Silo, a violent drama “which takes place in future San Francisco which – because of diminished resources and over population – has become one of the many global cities to have created silos – ultimate gated communities of people gathered behind walls or natural barriers.”

The Last Amazon from executive producer Ava DuVernay and Gaumont (Narcos) is described as “a character-driven epic historical series” and “will focus on the great Amazon Queens such as Antiope and Hippolyta, portraying their loves and major battles, notably, their campaign against the Ancient Greeks.”

David Simon’s A Dry Run: The Lincolns In Spain is set during the Spanish Civil War and revolves around who went to fight fascism in

Drama “commissioning club” Atrium TV has launched a second slate of projects with new dramas from Michael Douglas, Ava DuVernay, David Simon and the producers of Sherlock.

Atrium TV was created by former Sony boss Howard Stringer and Jeremy Fox and is owned by Mtg’s London-based distributor Drg.

Peter Bart: Can Superb Ted Kennedy Exposé ‘Chappaquiddick’ Survive Fact-Based Movie Malaise?

Peter Bart: Can Superb Ted Kennedy Exposé ‘Chappaquiddick’ Survive Fact-Based Movie Malaise?
There’s a powerful scene in the newly released film Chappaquiddick in which an exasperated, wheelchair-bound Joe Kennedy fiercely slaps his son, Ted. The monomaniacal old man is in a rage that Senator Ted, groomed to be the next Kennedy president, now faces ruin for driving his car off a bridge, thus drowning a young girl.

The question is, how many filmgoers will witness this riveting moment; as with most mid-budget dramatic films, Chappaquiddick, though superbly crafted, will battle it out this weekend with John Krasinski’s potential genre sleeper A Quiet Place, the racy comedy Blockers, or the returning Ready Player One. While the movie distributed by Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios relates an important chapter in a great family saga, it lacks the scale and depth (and marketing campaign) required to make a dent in today’s marketplace. At 100 minutes, filmgoers may feel that it plays more like

Oscar Watch: "Darkest Hour" (2017) Starring Gary Oldman

  • CinemaRetro
A Look At 2017 Films Nominated For Prominent Oscars

By Lee Pfeiffer

Who would have imagined that amid the debris of over-produced super hero movies, Winston Churchill would emerge as a major figure in films released in 2017? The woefully underrated "Churchill" (click here for review) was first out of the box, chronicling the British Prime minister's tumultuous inner-grappling with the pending D-Day invasion, which he supported but dissented from Eisenhower and Montgomery as to where and when the great armada should land. (History happily proved his instincts wrong.) Brian Cox gave a magnificent portrayal of Churchill that was largely overlooked by critics and the public. Churchill's specter also looms largely over Best Picture nominee "Dunkirk", as it was he who ordered the evacuation of stranded British troops by an improvised "fleet" of private vessels, small and large. The second Churchill biopic, "Darkest Hour", has won raves for Joe Wright's direction,

Terence Marsh obituary

Oscar winning production designer who created sets for Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago and The Shawshank Redemption

The production designer Terence Marsh, who has died aged 86, was asked in 2011 what precisely he had done on Lawrence of Arabia. “Oh – I built Aqaba,” he said. And he had: when a replica of the Red Sea port was required for the sequence in David Lean’s 1962 epic in which the Turkish garrison is attacked, Marsh and his colleague and mentor John Box constructed one behind the beach of Playa del Algarrobico, near Almeria in Spain. It was the first of many instances in which he worked resourcefully and imaginatively on a majestic scale.

Marsh and Box went on to win Oscars for their second film with Lean, Doctor Zhivago (1965), for which Marsh helped to find the locations. Spain once again came to the rescue, this time doubling for Russia and earning from

Film Review: ‘Intent to Destroy: Death, Denial & Depiction’

Film Review: ‘Intent to Destroy: Death, Denial & Depiction’
Perhaps the surest proof of Winston Churchill’s theorem that “history is written by the victors” comes from none other than Adolf Hitler: “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?” the German Fuhrer said by way of a chilling corollary, effectively paving the way for the most insidious ethnic cleansing of the modern era. Between 1915 and 1918, an estimated 1.5 million Armenians living in Ottoman Turkey had been rounded up and either marched to their deaths or murdered outright.

But “history” — as in the public study of past events, and the way they are positioned and discussed by society at large — has been ambiguous about the Armenian Genocide. Even that label is a point of contention among contemporary Turks, who resist the “G word” (coined in 1944 by Polish lawyer Raphael Lemkin to describe Germany’s systematic murder of Jewish citizens) as a legal definition that, they say, should not retroactively

Portrait of Jennie

David O. Selznick’s marvelous romantic fantasy ode to Jennifer Jones was almost wholly unappreciated back in 1948. It’s one of those peculiar pictures that either melts one’s heart or doesn’t. Backed by a music score adapted from Debussy, just one breathy “Oh Eben . . . “ will turn average romantics into mush.

Foreplays #5: Jane Campion's "A Girl’s Own Story"

  • MUBI
Foreplays is a column that explores under-known short films by renowned directors. Jane Campion's A Girl's Own Story (1984) is free to watch below. In consecutive close-ups, the inscrutable faces of three girls appear briefly on screen, as we hear the tune from a music box. Cut to the page of a book with the illustration of a male body, headless but with an erect penis. The girls’ hands gather around the male figure. One finger starts gliding across the drawing, carefully following the anatomical lines. The camera moves, trailing the finger that ends up underlining a sentence at the bottom of the page: “This sight might shock young girls.” The music ceases, hysterical female screams take over. Superimposed onto the black background, in an overwrought, baroque typography, the film’s title appears. This is the start of A Girl’s Own Story (1984), the fourth short directed by Jane Campion
