Tom Hooper caught a lot of grief as his ‘The King’s Speech’ rode the Oscar campaign trail two years ago, primarily because his excellent film was deemed “not as excellent” as David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network’ by vocal film columnists. But in the process of arguing for ‘Network’ (which is great), most overlooked the fact that ‘Speech’ is deftly directed and superbly acted. Hooper’s the real deal, and he’s the perfect fit for ‘Les Miserables,’ which we get a good look at today.
One of the first posters for Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ promised that ‘The Legend Ends.’ And now, as we inch closer to Nolan’s third and reported final installment in his Batman franchise, the director and his star suggest it might be the true end … or it might not.
This year’s Cannes Film Festival has delivered some off-the-charts bizarre on-screen action, from Kristen Stewart’s nudity in the risqué ‘On the Road’ to the dizzying ‘Holy Motors,’ which left one critic feeling “drunk” after its press screening. But few can hold a candle to Lee Daniels’ ‘The Paperboy,’ which allegedly contains a graphic scene of Nicole Kidman urinating on ‘High School Musical’ heartthrob Zac Efron.
One of the new awards MTV’s adding to this year’s Movie Awards will be the ‘Trailblazer’ trophy recognizing “actors beloved by the MTV audience who are carving out their own unique and diverse path within Hollywood,” according to the network. Today, it was revealed that Emma Stone will be the award’s first recipient.
Though yesterday brought us a gallery of new images, knowing how guarded Christopher Nolan is about his upcoming ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (and rightfully so), we expect that this batch of images from the anticipated sequel will be some of the last early teases we’ll get before the movie reaches theaters on July 20. So pore over every detail, because a few crucial details are revealed below.
Does anybody have a list of the movies Bill Murray could have been in if the notoriously hard-to-reach actor had only checked his messages? Apparently we can add one more mega-movie franchise to that healthy roster of missed opportunities, because Murray confirms that he could have been in ‘Iron Man,’ only Robert Downey Jr. couldn’t get a hold of him.
In his prime, Jackie Chan was marvelous. The untouchable martial artist kicked, punched and grinned his way to super-stardom in whirling dervish features like ‘Police Story,’ ‘Supercop,’ ‘The Legend of Drunken Master,’ ‘Rumble in the Bronx’ and ‘Who Am I?’ But age got the best of him, and Chan ended up in pictures like ‘Rush Hour 3’ and ‘The Spy Next Door.’ It seemed like Chan’s action career was over. Not yet.
Good news, James Bond fantics. You soon will be able to add ‘Octopussy,’ ‘You Only Live Twice,’ ‘Moonraker,’ ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ and every other 007 adventure to your Blu-ray collection via one massive box set headed to stores later this year.
An ‘Avengers’ sequel is happening. That much is set in stone. Beyond that, there’s nothing but questions, the largest being whether or not director Joss Whedon will return to a franchise that raced past the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office and has a decent shot at knocking ‘Avatar’ off its perch as the highest-grossing film of all time.
