Winter's Tale Synopsis
This is not a true story, it’s a love story.

Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, Winter’s Tale is about miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. The film marks the directorial debut of Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), and stars Colin Farrell (Saving Mr. Banks), Jessica Brown Findlay (TV’s Downton Abbey), and Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).

Peter Lake (Farrell) is a master thief, who never expected to have his own heart stolen by the beautiful Beverly Penn (Brown Findlay). But their love is star-crossed: she burns with a deadly form of consumption, and Peter has been marked for a much more violent death by his one-time mentor, the demonic Pearly Soames (Crowe). Peter desperately tries to save his one true love, across time, against the forces of darkness, even as Pearly does everything in his power to take him down—winner take all and loser be damned. What Peter needs is a miracle, but only time will tell if he can find one.

The film marks the directorial debut of Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), who also wrote the screenplay, based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Helprin.

Holiday Weekend Box Office: The LEGO Movie Breaks President's Day Weekend Record Holiday Weekend Box Office: The LEGO Movie Breaks President's Day Weekend Record
Between Valentine's Day on Friday and President's Day on Monday, it was a good weekend at the box office for the long four day holiday weekend. On average the march of the 1980's remake got a so-so result, but everything was clicking and building for the Legos.

Not a great week of movies. This is for sure a quantity over quality thing happening. And except for a robotic police officer, there is plenty a cornball love-dovey stuff for the Valentine’s Day crowd with tales of winter, endless love and stories about last night.

I don’t want to say that January 2014 was a bad month for cinema, but the last time I saw something that rotten, I was arrested for desecrating 13 cemeteries. Luckily, I got out on good behavior just long enough to celebrate with readers how superlative February’s theatrical releases will be in comparison.

Throwing the narrative for a spin, however, part of the story is also set in the present day.

While the writer/producer has made a number of big hits throughout his career, the script he wrote for Ron Howard's 2001 drama ended up winning him the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, a monumental achievement for anyone in Hollywood.

Dazzling audiences as the clean-cut looking, coke-addicted stripper of Magic Mike's insanely fit ensemble, Matt Bomer, the star of TV's White Collar, had an incredible summer. Despite having a relatively minor role in the breakout indie hit, Bomer drew plenty of notice among moviegoers, many of whom promptly took to the web to throw his name onto the growing wish list of handsome leading men who should be considered for the role of Christian Grey...

Russell Crowe & Will Smith Save Akiva Goldsman's Winter's Tale By Taking Roles In It Russell Crowe & Will Smith Save Akiva Goldsman's Winter's Tale By Taking Roles In It
Crowe has in fact signed on to Winter's Tale, and so has I Am Legend star Will Smith. The A-listers will play supporting roles in the fantasy-fueled drama, as a favor to Goldsman. While it might not seem like much for each to offer a few shoot days to the screenwriter who helped garner each major acclaim, this favor has in fact saved Winter's Tale from stalling out altogether. Well that in conjunction with a new budget, wherein Goldsman has cut $20 million of Warner Bros.'s costs.
