‘Arctic’ Trailer: Mads Mikkelsen Must Survive Alone in Acclaimed Wilderness Thriller

‘Arctic’ Trailer: Mads Mikkelsen Must Survive Alone in Acclaimed Wilderness Thriller
Being the only person on screen for an entire movie (or a large majority of the entire movie) did wonders for the likes of Robert Redford (“All Is Lost”), Blake Lively (“The Shallow”), Sandra Bullock (“Gravity”), Tom Hanks (“Castaway”), and Tom Hardy (“Locke”), and now Mads Mikkelsen joins the club with the upcoming survival thriller “Arctic.” The movie marks the feature directorial debut of Joe Penna, who shares screenwriting credit with Ryan Morrison.

Arctic” stars Mads Mikkelsen as a pilot named Overgård who is awaiting rescue after crash landing in the titular polar region. Overgård must decide whether to remain in the relative safety of his camp or to embark on a deadly trek through the unknown for potential salvation.

IndieWire’s David Ehrlich praised “Arctic” at the Cannes Film Festival as “one of the best movies ever made about a man stranded in the wilderness.” In his B+ review,

Oscar Flashback: Best Original Songs of the early 2010s, including ‘Skyfall,’ ‘Let It Go’

Oscar Flashback: Best Original Songs of the early 2010s, including ‘Skyfall,’ ‘Let It Go’
This article marks Part 25 of the Gold Derby series analyzing 84 years of Best Original Song at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at the timeless tunes recognized in this category, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the winners.

The 2010 Oscar nominees in Best Original Song were:

“Coming Home” from “Country Strong”

“If I Rise” from “127 Hours

“I See the Light” from “Tangled

We Belong Together” from “Toy Story 3

Won: “We Belong Together” from “Toy Story 3

Should’ve won: “If I Rise” from “127 Hours

Best Original Song in 2010 marked one of the most deadly-dull line-ups to ever grace the category, a sleepy, entirely unremarkable batch of four songs that is exceedingly difficult to select a favorite among.

Voters, faced with this anemic foursome, opted to go with Oscar mainstay Randy Newman, awarding him a second Best Original Song prize, this time for “We Belong Together.

51% of readers say Lady Gaga would be ‘perfect Oscars host’ — The other 49% aren’t so kind [Poll Results]
“She’d be the perfect Oscars host!” That’s how 51% of our readers voted in our recent poll about whether the film academy should tap Lady Gaga to emcee their 2019 ceremony in the wake of Kevin Hart stepping down. However, the other 49% of poll respondents weren’t as kind as they voted, “No — Leave the gig to the professionals.” Do You think the “A Star Is Born” scene-stealer would make a good Oscars host? Sound off down in the comments section.

SEELady Gaga battles Kendrick Lamar for Best Visual Media Song Grammy: Will it preview the Oscars?

In this era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, the academy might appear out-of-touch if they hired yet another man to host their next ceremony. After all, an astoundingly low number of woman — three — have hosted the Oscars since the turn of the century: Ellen DeGeneres in 2014 and 2007, Anne Hathaway in 2011 (with co-host with James Franco

Should Lady Gaga host the Oscars? She’d be only the 4th female host this century [Poll]
It’s no secret that the Oscars are having a tough time finding a host for their 2019 ceremony. First Kevin Hart stepped down following a backlash against his homophobic Twitter remarks from a decade ago, and now they’re considering having no host at all. In this era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, it seemed like a missed opportunity that the film academy didn’t ask a woman to host in the first place, especially since there have only been three this century. But now that there’s an opening we have the perfect suggestion: Lady Gaga.

Why her? Since the Oscars are broadcast in hundreds of countries around the globe, the academy would be wise to hire an international superstar to help bring in additional eyeballs. Say what you want about recent two-time host Jimmy Kimmel, but American talk show hosts simply don’t have the same worldwide notoriety as pop artists.

How independent have the Spirit Awards winners been compared to Oscars? You might be surprised

How independent have the Spirit Awards winners been compared to Oscars? You might be surprised
The Film Independent Spirit Awards began in 1984 as a way to shine a spotlight on smaller art-house movies that often were made on a shoestring budget and came from entities outside the major studios. From its inception as an alternative to the likes of the Academy Awards, titles that were eligible have been required to have a budget cap of $20 million, although exceptions could be made. It is also a more populist organization. While a select group of committee members choose the nominees, anyone who can afford to pay a yearly $95 fee can vote on the final outcomes online.

With Friday morning’s announcement of this year’s slate of Spirit contenders (see the full list of nominees here), it is as good a time as any to investigate just how independent these awards are these days.

From Trust to The Romanoffs: how TV's family sagas got serious

The 80s was dominated by over-the-top family dramas such as Dallas and Dynasty, but in the age of prestige TV, it’s less hairspray and more pathos

The beautiful child of a blessed family, snatched from his gilded cage by foreign enemies: Trust, which started on BBC2 last night, immediately sounds like a particularly dark fairytale. The true story of the kidnapping of Getty Oil heir John Paul Getty III by Italian mobsters in Rome is a woozy, decadent retelling of the story that captivated the world for several months in 1973. It also sees writer Simon Beaufoy and director Danny Boyle continue the successful collaboration that produced Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours.

It comes with some powerful performances. Harris Dickinson impresses as the guileless 16 year-old victim - his long strawberry blond locks gaining him the nickname the “Golden Hippy” in the Italian press. Hilary Swank is compelling as his mother,

James Franco movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘127 Hours,’ ‘The Disaster Artist,’ ‘Milk’

James Franco movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘127 Hours,’ ‘The Disaster Artist,’ ‘Milk’
Season 2 of “The Deuce” is now debuting on HBO. The series stars James Franco, who also produces the program and directs some episodes. He has developed a pretty notable resume since he first came to audience’s attention on the low rated but highly acclaimed TV series “Freaks and Geeks.”

A year after that NBC show ended, Franco found fame in a highly praised TV biography of James Dean for which he won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Emmy award. That success led Franco to a film career which has run the gamut from superhero blockbusters to Oscar nominated prestige films.

It hasn’t all been a smooth ride for Franco though. In 2010 he should have been at the peak of his profession since he had just received his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor for the film “127 Hours.” Unfortunately for Franco, he agreed to act

Danny Boyle Steps Down From 2019 James Bond Film; Cites Creative Differences

  • Cinelinx
The 25th James Bond film is getting off to a rocky start, as they'll need to find a new director to film Daniel Craig's swan song. More within...

Around the same time that Daniel Craig agreed to return for the untitled Bond 25, Director Danny Boyle revealed his intentions to direct the project. After all, Boyle has been a long time fan of the 007 series, even including it in the 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in London, of which he directed. However, fast forward about 5 months and it looks like Daniel Craig will need a new M to his 007. According to a tweet from the official James Bond twitter, it has been announced that the Academy Award-winning director will no longer direct Bond 25.

James Bond 25 Loses Director Danny Boyle
James Bond 25 has hit a bit of a snag, as the movie's director Danny Boyle has parted ways with the project due to creative differences. The news was first announced by the official James Bond page on Twitter, and has since started to make some fans worry about the future of this movie considering that it is slated to begin production in just a few months.

Bond 25 is set to be the fifth and final Bond movie to feature Daniel Craig, so the stakes are already high to make sure that Craig goes out of the franchise with a bang. Many fans were worried that Craig would not come back for his fifth outing, as he was notably tired of the experience after the release of Spectre back in 2015. Fortunately, Craig agreed to do one more Bond movie. Based on how much fans have adored Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond,

We hope to start shooting that in 6 or 7 weeks. Then Bond would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now.”
