Is there a point to enforcing the law in the face of certain destruction? With the end of the world looming, how far would you go to make things right? Those are just some of the themes to be tackled by Neil Cross‘ (Luther) Hard Sun, a six-part “pre-apocalyptic” crime drama from BBC One and Hulu. Written […]
Director Matthew Cullen is ready to delve into social degradation like it's 1999.
You'll see from the imagery in this trailer why the US distributor thought converting it to 3D might be a good idea.
The Best Offer seems to be nicely shot and definitely has a great cast.
It could open up a goofball doppelganger plot anyhow, eh?
Canal+ have premiered the first trailer for the sci-fi fantasy Upside Down, a romantic thriller across two worlds, each one hanging upside down in the sky of the other. Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst star. Juan Solanas has directed, and with a real eye for a striking image. It’s good to see this kind of […]
It seems that Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess have a taste for visually imaginative films built on fantastical conceits – she was in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Melancholia, he was in Heartless and Across the Universe, and is currently filming Cloud Atlas. They come together in another such film, Juan Solanas‘ Upside […]
I don’t think this trailer for One Day is supposed to be out there, but it is. This is the internet. Digital genies don’t go back into bottles.* So, the first YouTube embed for the trailer has already come and gone, but The Movie List have watermarked a copy and made it available for download. […]
I have confirmed with the film’s producers that Jim Sturgess and Malin Akerman are attached to star in Wildwood Inn, the directorial debut of actor Christopher McDonald. You’ll most likely know McDonald from Requiem For a Dream, Sturgess starred (and was superb) in Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe, and Akerman was in Watchmen. Two out […]
I’ve been tracking Juan Solanos’ film Upside Down for some time now, and have some tracking still to do before it completes post production and reaches screens in late 2011, perhaps 2012. Our first images from the film have arrived now, however, as a nice, early tease. The film’s premise is a variant on the […]
The Guardian have scored what they’re calling a World Exclusive trailer for Peter Weir’s The Way Back. They also give a UK release date of Boxing Day. We recently learned that the film would be getting a one-week release in the US before the end of the year in order to qualify for Oscars but […]
When I previewed a bunch of scenes from Zack Snyder’s Legend of the Guardians: Something Something Owls Ga’hoole (they need to streamline that) I was amazed how ferocious and angry some of the cartoon owls were. This was potential Watership Down stuff, the kind of kids movie that ends in tears and blood and new […]
Warner Bros. today presented a short preview package of clips from Zack Snyder’s The Legend of the Guardians, a 3D CG toon about warrior owls with a taste for the mythic, and I was there for every last virtual feather of it. I was told that the running time of the footage presented would be […]
I’ll be keeping a close eye on this one. One Day is the next film from Lone Scherfig, director of An Education, and stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. Here’s an on-location picture of the stars in Edinburgh. It’s clearly a flashback scene with flashback hair and flashback fashion. That photo comes from flickriver. Meanwhile, here’s […]
Currently filming in the UK is an adaptation of David Nicholls’ newest novel, One Day. It’s a romance starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, and is directed by An Education‘s Lone Scherfig. Not a bad team, though I’m personally sold on it because of Sturgess in particular. Here’s a bit of a worry: Hathaway’s character […]
