Exclusive: Ayelet Zurer Talks Darling Companion, Man of Steel

Exclusive: Ayelet Zurer Talks Darling Companion, Man of Steel
With her statuesque beauty, Israeli-born actress Ayelet Zurer has made a strong impression in genre fare like “Vantage Point” and “Angels & Demons,” and especially heavy, hard-hitting dramas like “Fugitive Pieces,” ”Adam Resurrected” and Steven Spielberg’s “Munich,” in which she plays Eric Bana’s sympathetic wife and serves as his emotional mooring. Writer-director Lawrence Kasdan’s “Darling Companion,” then, represents a nice, unexpected change-up for Zurer, who plays Carmen, an exotic seasonal housesitter who ends up helping her employers (Diane Keaton and Kevin Kline) search for their missing dog, and in the process develops an unexpected connection with a member of their extended family, Bryan (Mark Duplass). ShockYa recently had a chance to sit down with Zurer one-on-one, and talk [ Read More ]

Rosamund Pike: 'I was amazed that Rowan Atkinson even knew who I was'

Rosamund Pike surprised everyone when she was cast as a Bond Girl 10 years ago. And now she is spoofing that role in Johnny English Reborn

It feels strange to say that Johnny English Reborn is something of a revelation. It isn't the film itself – a tepid spy spoof sequel starring Rowan Atkinson and Dominic West, with the occasional blast of amusement and much slapstick. The unexpected element here comes in the form of Rosamund Pike, playing a top MI7 psychologist named Kate Sumner.

Pike provides both comic foil and love interest for Atkinson – all wide eyes, earnest expressions and fitted shift dresses. But her presence is never less than amusing; it's there in the tilt of her neck, the set of her shoulders, and, more than anywhere, in her face – the faint creases around the eyes and the corner of the mouth breathe humour into that famously crisp beauty.

Rosamund Pike: 'I seek adventure all the time'

Rosamund Pike has been shaking off her taffeta-and-lace typecasting with a run of sharp comic roles lately. She talks to John Patterson about keeping things interesting

A discernible groundswell has slowly been building under Rosamund Pike's career since this actor, hitherto lumbered with a grave ice-princess image and a profile seemingly custom-sculpted for heritage telly, suddenly flexed her comedic muscles in An Education two years ago. She was the transcendentally vacant, dimwit-goddess girlfriend of one of its shadier characters. Seeing the ostensibly buttoned-down, corseted-up Pike fire off delirious comic fusillades one after another was like watching Monica Vitti suddenly burst into song, or Angela Rippon dancing with Morecambe and Wise: delightful, and totally unexpected. Who knew?

American critics are agreeing that Pike has become the best reason to see any movie she's in: she has crept up on them in a succession of tasty supporting roles since An Education.

Katia Winter Prepares For Killing Game

Katia Winter Prepares For Killing Game
First it was called Fury. Then it became Deathgames, to avoid confusion with a certain Marvel character. And what's now for the time being called The Killing Game has just landed Katia Winter as its female lead. She'll star alongside the other Fury himself, Samuel L Jackson, and Twilight's Kellan Lutz.The indie action thriller features Lutz as a poor schmo kidnapped by Jackson's evil mastermind, and forced to participate in gladiatorial combat for the pleasure of online gamblers*. Nina Dobrev from Fugitive PIeces and TV's Vampire Diaries, and Lost's Daniel Dae Kim are also already on-hand as fighters, as is James Remar as "Tall Man" (another one!). But the word "lead" suggests that Winter, as "Milla", will be the Sonja Blade / Nina Williams type that we're especially rooting for. We hope it doesn't just mean throwaway action movie eye candy love interest for Lutz.The Swedish Katia only moved to La in March,

The Hotcast: Ben Browder in a fedora

Stargate: SG1 and Farscape star Ben Browder is putting on a fedora to take down some rogue AI's. The Sf icon has been cast as the lead in a new webseries called Naught For Hire.

Set 20 years in the future, the 13 part webseries will follow Nick Naught, P.I., "...an an analog guy in a digital world who relies on instinct to guide him through a world filled with malfunctioning technology."

Other characters in the upcoming series include Naught's Phone (!), Elevator (!!) and Computer (!!!). It's like Doctor McCoy's nightmares come to life.

While I'm a bit tired of "analog detectives in a digital world" tropes, the webseries is by Jeffrey Berman, a former producer on The Kids In The Hall TV series and the well received feature film Fugitive Pieces (2007). The series premieres on-line this fall.

And now, some Ben Browder to get you in the mood:

Darwin Beats Canada -- 'Creation' Will Open Tiff

Traditionally, Canadian films have opened the Toronto International Film Festival. It's only natural -- one of the biggest film festivals taking place in Canada makes it the perfect springboard for Canuck cinema. Last year it was Paul Gross' Passchendaele. And before that: Fugitive Pieces, The Journals of Knud Rasmussen, and Water. But Darwin is once again changing things. That meddlesome man!

The Hollywood Reporter posts that Tiff has picked their opening film, and it will be the Charles Darwin film Creation from director Jon Amiel. (Starring the husband and wife team of Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly.) Fest co-director Cameron Bailey says: "By telling a story on many levels, weaving scenes from past and present, this depiction of Darwin promises to deeply move audiences by drawing them into the conflicted mind of a man who presented a concept that changed the world." But is it a story that needed to be told opening night?

Satellite Nominees are an Embarrassment of Snubs

The International Press Academy announced their nominees for the 13th Annual Satellite Awards and it is a mixed bag of snubs across the board and further proof the idea of separating Drama, Comedy and Musicals is just about the dumbest idea around as they are Really reaching by including Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist as a comedy or a musical. I would even say Happy-Go-Lucky and Vicky Cristina Barcelona don't fit the category. What was so funny about Poppy being attacked by her driving instructor? Where was the comedy in VCB? Gimme a break. it's going to be even worse when the Globes nominate something like High School Musical 3 and Mamma Mia! instantly giving them some kind of credibility. However, category distinction aside the absence of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button from all categories makes me wonder if any of these people even saw all the films. Take for
