Benedict Cumberbatch: ‘The Child in Time’ on PBS Masterpiece could win ‘Sherlock’ star another Emmy

Benedict Cumberbatch: ‘The Child in Time’ on PBS Masterpiece could win ‘Sherlock’ star another Emmy
Benedict Cumberbatch returns to PBS Masterpiece on April 1. However, he isn’t playing Sherlock, the role for which he won an Emmy in 2014. Rather he is headlining an acclaimed adaptation of Ian McEwan‘s 1987 bestseller “The Child in Time.” McEwan also wrote “Atonement,” which was adapted into the 2007 Oscar-winning film that launched Cumberbatch’s career. In this new film, for which he earned rave reviews, he plays Stephen Lewis, a children’s author whose marriage is rocked by the loss of his daughter.

This is a passion project for the actor who readily admits, “I read the novel years ago and it stayed with me: profound, beautiful and very moving. Only Ian McEwan could write about loss with such telling honesty.” And he is just as enthusiastic about his partners. “We’re very excited to have Stephen Butchard’s subtle and brilliant adaptation, and in Julian Farino we have an

What Have You Done to Solange? | Blu-ray Review

Massimo Dallamano may be best known to some as the cinematographer of Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars (1964) and For a Few Dollars More (1965), credited under the pseudonym Jack Dalmas. Following his collaborations with Leone, Dallamano would only serve as cinematographer twice more (his last credit being French director Michel Deville’s 1966 comedy The Mona Lisa Has Been Stolen starring George Chakiris and Marina Vlady). The explosive popularity of the spaghetti western would allow Dallamano to begin his own career as a director, with 1967 debut Bandidos (credited under another pseudonym, Max Dillman), but he’d soon after turn to the bread and butter of more exploitative genre fare. The director of eleven features, up until his death in 1976, Dallamano’s enduring, fascinating masterpiece stands as the 1972 title What Have You Done to Solange? Credited as a giallo staple, Dallamano’s film is more of a hybrid of subgenres, a mixed giallo and poliziotteschi film.

Spike Lee Attacks Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’

Spike Lee is disgusted with fellow director Quentin Tarantino’s depiction of slavery in his latest flick ‘Django Unchained,’ and he’s blasting the ‘disrespectful’ movie on Twitter! Whose side are you on?

Spike Lee has criticized Quentin Tarantino’s work in the past, and now, the director says he’d be disrespecting his ancestors if he were to see the slavery revenge flick Django Unchained. He’s boycotting the movie because he finds it insulting.

“American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them,” Spike wrote on Twitter.

“I can’t speak on it ’cause I’m not gonna see it. I’m not seeing it,” Spike also said in a video interview with VibeTV. ”All I’m going to say is that it’s disrespectful to my ancestors to see that film. That

Nicolas Cage has to rescue his daughter in Stolen trailer

Nicolas Cage once again stars as Nicolas Cage in Stolen, with a new trailer featuring the main man in a somewhat subdued capacity and an over-the-top Josh Lucas.

Wild man Cage has made a career out of unleashing his crazy self in front of the camera, but he actually seems to reign in the craziness a little bit in this trailer that stars him as a former thief forced to pull off one last heist to rescue his daughter from his former partner in crime. Meanwhile, Josh Lucas seems to grab some of that wacko juice, not so much in the way he acts, but how he looks. I didn’t even recognize him until he opened his mouth and spoke.

Hollywood rolls out a tired plot in the movie formerly known as Medallion, making this a must-see for Lucas or Cage fans, and pretty much nobody else. The synopsis

Stallone and Cage Hit New Orleans

Poor New Orleans. Seven years after being hit by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the Crescent City is doing battle with what look to be two new calamities: the upcoming movies from Nicolas Cage and Sylvester Stallone.

An odd twist of fate finds Stallone's Bullet to the Head and Cage's Stolen both set in the Big Easy. An even odder twist of fate finds the trailers for both flicks released in the same week after the films themselves have been sitting on the shelf for more than a year. A twist of fate that's not at all odd is the fact that both movies look like stinkers. Actually, that's not really a twist of fate. That's just reality; therefore, I guess the universe remains in balance.

Bullet to the Head (formerly titled Headshot) is the story of an aging hit man, played by Stallone, whose partner is whacked. So, of course

Nicolas Cage In Trailers For Frozen Ground And Stolen

If Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance didn’t give you enough of Nicholas Cage to last the year, fear not. There’s more. 2012 will end with 2 films from the Oscar winning actor. First up is Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and Vanessa Hudgens in the new trailer for Frozen Ground (via THR).

In this taut and gripping, true-life thriller, Alaska State Trooper, Glen Flothe (Cage), partners with Cindy Paulson (Hudgens), to bring Alaska’s most notorious serial killer, Robert Hansen (Cusack), to justice.

As the bodies of women start to add up, Sgt. Flothe goes on a personal manhunt to find a serial killer who has silently stalked the streets of Anchorage for more than 13 years. When 17 year-old Cindy Paulson escapes Hansen’s unspeakable violence, she believes the law will take him down. Instead she finds herself, once again, fighting for her life. With her only ally, the unlikely Sgt. Flothe,

‘Stolen’ Trailer Puts Nic Cage in a Fairly Normal Hairdo But Provides Plenty of Action

A general rule of thumb to follow when dealing with modern Nic Cage movies is that the more ridiculous his hair looks in the trailer, the more awesomely bad the movie is going to end up being. Given that criteria, it doesn’t seem like his latest film, Stolen, is really going to be anything to write home about. Just look at that relatively short, slicked back, graciously-accepting-the-receding-nature-of-the-hairline do that he’s sporting here—it’s almost typical for a man his age. Given the apparent lack of lunacy, is Stolen even going to be worth watching? Maybe. It’s important to keep in mind that this project is re-teaming the actor with his Con Air director, Simon West, and Con-Air is one of the seminal, balls-crazy Nic Cage action films. He plays a character named Cameron Poe in that one, for heaven’s sake. There’s bound to be at least some residual craziness seeping into

Stolen Trailer Starring Nicolas Cage

Maybe it's just me, but it feels like the success of Taken has led to an increase in the number of revenge movies being made as of late and Nicolas Cage happens to be starring in at least half of them. This week a trailer has arrived online for another riff on Taken called Stolen that finds Nicolas Cage reteaming with Con-Air director Simon West (who also just directed The Expendables 2). Cage plays a father whose daughter is kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a taxi, the twist being that Cage's character is a former thief who must pull off one last heist to get the ransom money. However, if you thought Cage was likely to be the most ridiculous thing about this movie, think again: Josh Lucas plays the dirtbag kidnapper with long, scraggly hair and a cut under one eye. Cage's daughter is played by Sami Gayle,

'Stolen' With Nicolas Cage Has Everything We Need In A Trailer

'Stolen' With Nicolas Cage Has Everything We Need In A Trailer
Here, let us pitch you a movie. It stars Nicolas Cage—wait! Before you start shouting, "I need to see this," let us finish.

It stars Nicolas Cage as a bank robber. There's more. In this movie, he plays a bank robber, who gets caught pulling a job, and when he gets released from prison, his partner, played by a long-hair, strung-out Josh Lucas, demands his share of the money, which Cage destroyed. To make sure he gets his take, this former partner kidnaps Cage's daughter.

We know what you're thinking. "Of course, I want to see this movie. Why would anyone not want to see this movie?" But for the sake of argument, you should probably just check out the first trailer for Nicolas Cage in "Stolen" (via Yahoo! Movies).

We told you. You can check out the synopsis for "Stolen" below.

Nicolas Cage's daughter is Taken in the trailer for Stolen

Considering the title and basic plotline for Stolen, you'd be forgiven for thinking at first glance that the film was just the latest mockbuster, this time designed to cash in on the upcoming Liam Neeson action sequel Taken 2. It's not. It is in fact the latest Nicolas Cage action thriller and sees him starring as a master thief forced to employed his own particular set of skills to pull off a daring heist in order to raise a $10 million ransom and free his kidnapped daughter, who is being held hostage by his former partner.

Stolen reteams Cage with Con Air director Simon West and arrives hot on the heels of West's latest offering The Expendables 2, which looks set to open in first place at the box-office this weekend. Joining Cage in the cast are Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Josh Lucas (Poseidon), Danny Huston (Wrath of the Titans), Sami Gayle

Watch: 'Con Air' Director Simon West Reunites With Nic Cage For 'Taken' In A Taxi Cab Thriller 'Stolen'

Like any successful distribution label should, Millennium Entertainment has accrued an instantly recognizable strain of action film with which their brand is linked, so when their logo pops up the trailer for their latest release “Stolen” -- and Jason Statham, Cuba Gooding Jr., or Clive Owen is nowhere in sight -- naturally there's only Nicolas Cage left to deliver the goods. Written by David Guggenheim (“Safe House”), and directed by Simon West (marking a reunion with Cage after “Con Air”), the film at least had the makings of a decent thriller in its veins. However, from the opening moments of the trailer -- featuring a former thief Cage emerging from prison (looking painfully serious) only to find his estranged daughter kidnapped by his old partner (Josh Lucas) -- it looks like the under-lit, throw-away actioner that tax-credit friendly New Orleans filmmaking tends to exhibit on its worst days. In the villain role,

Awful Trailer for Nicolas Cage's Stolen

Here's a the first trailer to Nicolas Cage's terrible looking movie, Stolen. What's crazy is this movie actually has a decent director and cast, unfortunately the movie looks like a piece of crap to me. The movie was directed by Simon West (Con Air, Tomb Raider), and also stars Josh Lucas, Malin Akerman and Danny Huston

When I see a movie like this, it makes me wonder if any of investors or studio executives actually read the script before they greenlit it. I Imagine the pitch meeting went something like this.... "It's like the movie Taken only it's not!" It seems like a direct to DVD knock-off movie, especially with that title... Stolen.

Here's the Synopsis:

Will Montgomery is a master thief who after being double-crossed in a heist gone awry is sent to prison for 8 years. Upon his release he's ready to leave his criminal past behind and

‘Stolen’ Trailer – Nicolas Cage Gets His Own ‘Taken,’ Courtesy of Simon West

  • The Film Stage
Just when you think he’s getting back on track, Nicolas Cage goes and makes something like this. Even worse? I (only now) remember hearing about Stolen some six months or so ago and thinking, “Yeah, this could prove to be alright.” After all, the actor can still do his trashy stuff well, given the proper material; the concept of trying to track down one taxi, the trunk of which contains his character’s daughter, sounded sort of fun; and, when you break it down, Simon West isn’t too bad, either.

The first trailer, however, makes it clear that everyone’s taking a quick paycheck and getting the hell out before anyone else takes notice. Cage… is doing his thing again, but not in the entertaining sense, while Josh Lucas shows up with a ridiculous haircut that should make him look “grungy.” Or something. (Also, why is Justin Bieber

First Trailer for Stolen Starring Nicolas Cage and Malin Akerman

The first trailer for the action thriller Stolen has been released. Previously referred to as Medallion, the film reteams Nicolas Cage with his Con Air director Simon West. Cage plays a former master thief who only has a few hours to find his daughter when she is kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a New York taxi cab. Malin Akerman plays Cage’s ex-girlfriend with whom he teams up to find his daughter, while a long-haired Josh Lucas plays the antagonist, Cage’s former partner who’s gone a bit off the deep end. Despite the cheesy “movie trailer man” voice over, the film actually looks like it could be a fun ride. The Taken comparisons can’t be ignored, but under the direction of West Stolen doesn’t seem to be taking itself too seriously. And was that a stuffed animal I saw in Cage’s arms or was I dreaming?

First Official Us Trailer For ‘Stolen’ Starring Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage seems to be violently auditioning for a role in The Expendables 3 in this first official Us trailer for Stolen (watch the international trailer here). It sees Cage having to steal $10 million to give to his ex-partner for the safe release of his daughter. The trailer shows absolutely nothing new and is already one of Cage’s blandest performances. It seems as though they wanted to make Josh Lucas look as damn crazy as possible so that you wouldn’t confuse him with a good guy. The best thing about the trailer is that it signals the return of the voice-over guy, who I haven’t heard in a donkey’s age. See what you think, but I’m pretty sure you could edit this film together using films that are already available.

Stolen is released sometime this year. It stars Nicolas Cage, Danny Huston, Josh Lucas, Sami Gayle,

Trailer for Simon West's Stolen Starring Nicolas Cage and Josh Lucas

British action director Simon West's new movie, The Expendables 2, opened nationwide today, but before he aimed his camera lens at Sly, Schwarz, Willis and the rest of the boys, West reunited with Nicolas Cage — who starred in West's very first movie, Con Air — on Stolen (formerly Medallion).

Cage stars as Will Montgomery, an accomplished bank robber who eventually gets caught and ends up spending eight years in prison. After being released, he goes to visit his daughter Alison (Sami Gayle), only to discover that she wants nothing to do with him. Alison may not want her dad in her life, but she needs him and his particular set of skills (apologies to Liam Neeson) when Will's old partner (Josh Lucas) kidnaps her and demands a $10 million ransom. When the cops won't help, Will is forced to do the only thing he can do to save his daughter — rob another bank.
