BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
After years of development, Southpaw is finally coming out to play. The boxing drama once courted Eminem before landing Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead, and now director Antoine Fuqua is going about filling out the cast. And would you believe he's enlisting People Magazine's Most Beautiful Person In The World, queen bee Regina George, and Ghost Dog?
Rachel McAdams has bowed out of the film, leading The Weinstein Company to withdraw their financial support on the film and subsequently remove the release date off the schedule entirely.
Set to be directed by Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones) from a script written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), Passengers will take place aboard a huge spacecraft transporting thousands of citizens to a distant planet in the early stages of colonization. Due to a malfunction in one of the shipís sleep chambers, one lone passenger (Reeves) wakes up 90 years before he is supposed to.
Richard Curtis, the writer who mastered the high-concept wish-fulfillment fantasy of Notting Hill and the many-threaded romances of Love Actually, is the perfect person to bring us a rom-com like About Time. Unfortunately, even though Curtis wrote and directed it, About Time is not a perfect rom-com for him, with sloppier plotting and fuzzier morals than the airy story can handle, and a wide streak of sentimentality that's frustratingly unearned
Charlotte Gainsbourg has signed on to play the aforementioned mother, while Robert Naylor of televisionís Being Human will portray the surviving brother. For her part, McAdams will play Francoís concern girlfriend, who attempts to help him cope in the shadow of his guilt.
Hearing about the film inspired no excitement. A remake of an unamazing French movie, Love Crime, that trades in two stellar actresses for a good one and an average one? Thatís a raincheck I donít mind signing.
For those unfamiliar with the book, the plot centers on a pilot who crashes in the Sahara desert and miraculously comes across a young boy who claims to hail from an asteroid and has fallen to Earth. The pilot fixes his plane and tries to get it ready for flight again while the boy tells him stories about his homeworld. Sources have informed THR that Bridges will be providing the voice of the pilot, but fails to mention who the rest of the actors will be portraying.
What if you could relive any moment until it was perfect? This is the question at the center of writer-director Richard Curtis's latest romantic comedy, which boasts a clever sci-fi twist. This time round, the mind behind such winsome romances as Love Actually, Notting Hill, and Four Weddings and a Funeral centers his love story on a gawky 21-year-old man named Tim (Anna Karenina's Domhnall Gleeson), whose just learned that his unique DNA allows him to time travel at will.
Nighy plays the patriarch of a family whose male members are able to travel through time. He passes this information down to his relative, Tim (Domhnall Gleeson), who doesnít use the newfound gift to change dramatic passages of history or correct humanityís past mistakes. He uses it to get girls.
When Cooper was cast opposite Stone I complained that it was another in a long string of age-inappropriate relationships for Cooper onscreen, coming just after he romanced 15-years-younger Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook. McAdams, on the other hand, is only three years younger than Cooper, which makes it much more the kind of matchup we can get behind. Of course, given that McAdams is reportedly playing the ex it's clear that age is just a number here, but it's a step at least
Rachel McAdams didn't fare all that waell the first time she starred in a romance opposite a man who could time travel, when The Time Traveler's Wife failed to be nearly as big a hit as the movie it was based on. But she's giving it another shot anyway, starring opposite Anna Karenina standout Domnhall Gleeson
Sure, she hasn't turned The Vow into a mega-year quite the way her co-star Channing Tatum has, but she's doing pretty well, and she looks to be continuing her hot streak with A Most Wanted Man, the John le Carre novel adaptation that already has Philip Seymour Hoffman set to star
Wonder stars an impressive array of talents, including Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem, Rachel Weisz, Michael Sheen, Amanda Peet, Barry Pepper and Jessica Chastain. IMDB claims it centers on ďa man who reconnects with a woman from his hometown after his marriage to a European woman falls apart.Ē
I'm starting to think that Rachel McAdams may have a thing for guys who have the ability to time travel. In 2009 she starred alongside Eric Bana in The Time Traveler's Wife as a woman who lives a life with a husband who can't control his ability to time jump, and now she's getting set to play a similar role - only this time the time travel ability is controlled and it's a comedy instead of a drama.
The Vow will hit Blu-Ray and DVD on May 8. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is bringing even more extras into the mix for audiences who purchase Blu-Ray copies of the film. Blu-Ray copies will exclusively come with three featurettes, including one that delves into the true story The Vow is based on, about the real-life couple who had to realign their relationship after a traumatic accident inspired amnesia
If this story is true, I think DePalma is making a big mistake. As much as I didn't like the film, the dynamic between Thomas and Sagnier was interesting because of the boss-protege relationship. If you make the characters the same age then you are taking away one of the few things about the movie that actually worked. Still, McAdams and Rapace are both talented actresses, so maybe they can work with what DePalma gives them.
A lot of good actors get caught up in cheesy Nicholas Sparks adaptations, from Kevin Costner all the way back with Message in a Bottle to Amanda Seyfried just last year in Dear John. But you have to start worrying when an actor goes back to the Sparks well twice, agreeing once again to weep, fall in love and be shot in soft focus
Shot in Paris and Oklahoma, the movie-- at one point called The Burial-- stars Affleck as a man who engages in an affair on a trip to Paris with an exotic European woman, played naturally by the exotic Russian Olga Kurylenko. He returns home to Oklahoma married to the European, partly for green card reasons, but also kicks up an affair with a local girl, played by Rachel McAdams
We all know that Sherlock Holmes movies, as envisioned by Guy Ritchie, will contain insane action and occasional use of slo-mo and a lot of Victorian settings blown to smithereens. But why lean so heavily on that and leave out most of the humor? It's the repartee between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, not the glitzy modern action, that makes these movies worthwhile, but this trailer makes the sequel seem even more over-the-top than the original
While David O. Russell has been known to go a little off-kilter on set once in a while, I can't imagine a single actor or actress who wouldn't want to work with him right now. The fact that The Fighter earned seven Oscar nominations is impressive enough, but what should make any hungry actor start salivating is that three of those nominations were acting-related and two of the nominees actually won.
