Netflix has tapped actor/comedian Sacha Baron Cohen (Les Misérables) to bring the story of legendary Israeli spy Eli Cohen to life in their six-episode limited series The Spy. Written and directed by Gideon Raff (Prisoners of War), the series will debut globally on the streaming service outside of France; and on OCS in France. Legende Films and Alain Goldman […]
20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for the upcoming action-comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses. In the film, Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher play a married couple bracing for the arrival of new neighbors: the ultra-accomplished and sophisticated duo of Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot. They quickly discover their new neighbors may be […]
Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Isla Fisher have some tricks to show you.
The six key players in Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of Fitzgerald.
Stealing and conning, stage magic style.
It's like the hokey cokey… but with Iron Man 3 actresses instead of legs. Scarlett Johansson was in. Scarlett Johansson went out. Jessica Chastain was in. Now Jessica Chastain is out. She posted to her Facebook (found via Movieline): Sorry to say that Iron Man 3 isn't going to work out. My schedule is jammed packed and […]
I love good twist. Especially the kind where the filmmakers played fair, and showed you "everything" all along, it's just that you, the viewer, didn't necessarily add it all up in the right way. Conmen and heist films often pull this manoeuvre, and when we get a film about magicians, those will often hang on […]
I was sitting on this for a moment, but it appears to be cropping up elsewhere now, so here it is, ahead of schedule: a good look at Dreamworks's Rise of the Guardians. To set it up, here's a blurb: When an evil spirit called Pitch becomes bent upon taking over the world by inspiring […]
Michael Moran has been to see Rango for Bleeding Cool: There's probably a pitch that sounds like this every day, somewhere in Hollywood. CGI-rendered anthropomorphic misfit character bumbles through 90 minutes of sight-gags, gains redemption and expounds a simple moral for the kids while juggling a fistful of pop-culture references to keep their adult carers […]
Classified today by the BBFC were the special features for John Landis' Burke and Hare on DVD. This is UK DVD, mind, as the film is yet to have any US release announced. It's becoming a bit of a trend for those Masters of Horror directors to see their films hit the UK before the […]
Gore Verbinski's animated film Rango was, before animation began, filmed as a rather basic stage production. You can see that process in this new featurette as Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher et al bounce about in a rudimentary set. Now, I can see the benefits of this approach, not least in giving the actors something to […]
Click through this poster to make it so big you'll be able to make out individual Hares… and Burkes. The Isla Fisher piece of the collage is rather unfortunate and more than a bit tacky, don't you think? But at least there's finally a poster of some sort. The film is in UK cinemas on […]
