Tag: Domhnall Gleeson (1-6 of 6)
Michael Fassbender plays a musical genius who can’t seem to face life “face on” in the film Frank.
The offbeat comedy directed by Lenny Abrahamson premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and tells the story of the avant-garde pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Fassbender) as they travel to perform at the South by Southwest Festival in Texas. Domhnall Gleeson and Maggie Gyllenhaal star as Frank’s bandmates. The story, written by Jon Ronson (The Men Who Stare At Goats) and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), is loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom, the persona of cult musician and comedy legend Chris Sievey, as well as other outsider musicians like Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart.
The film will be released in the U.K. May 9, with a domestic release planned for later this year. Watch the trailer below: READ FULL STORY
Casting Net: Elizabeth Olsen for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'?; Plus, Bradley Cooper in talks to voice Rocket Raccoon, more
• Elizabeth Olsen is reportedly in talks to play Wanda Maximoff (also known as the Scarlet Witch) in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The Marvel character is the offspring of Magneto (an X-Men character and Fox property) and boasts the ability to reshape reality and alter probabilities. Olsen broke out in the independent world with her role in Martha Marcy May Marlene, but it seems like she has broader, more mainstream plans — she recently wrapped Godzilla and will be appearing in Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake.

Richard Curtis’ new film About Time — out Nov. 8 — stars Domhnall Gleeson as a young Englishman who discovers that he can travel through time, just like his dad (Bill Nighy). But the director, who has written such rom-com classics as Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, as well as directing Love Actually (the cinematic equivalent to a supergroup), insists that he hasn’t switched genres completely.
“It’s actually an anti-time-travel time-travel movie,” he says with a laugh. But how could this be? “You’ll understand once you see it,” he promises. “It’s really a philosophical movie — what if you had one day to live? You wouldn’t want to try to win an Oscar or get an Olympic gold medal. You’d live a normal day: You’d have breakfast with your kids and lunch with your friends and dinner with someone you love. This film is about what matters in time. And it turns out, in my opinion, to be the most ordinary of things.”
It was this thinking that helped Curtis come to the realization that About Time will more than likely be the last film he directs.

From Richard Curtis, the writer of Notting Hill and Love Actually, comes another story about love in a complicated world. But this time around, the complication involves a bit of time travel.
In About Time, Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter‘s Bill Weasley) stars as Tim, a young man whose father (played by Bill Nighy) informs him that the men in their family have a very special talent. Give these guys a dark space and let them really concentrate, and they can travel through time. The trick is how much and for what they use their gift. And after Tim falls in love with Mary (Rachel McAdams) and starts to use time travel to re-do things — like the first time they met or the first time they slept together, things start to go a little haywire.
Watch the slightly different domestic and international trailers for About Time below: READ FULL STORY
Rachel McAdams’ upcoming time travel romantic comedy, About Time, is doing some of its own leaping across the calendar. Universal announced on Thursday that the film, originally slated for a May 10, 2013 opening date, will now launch in limited release on Nov. 1, 2013 opening nationwide on Nov. 8, 2013.
In About Time, Mary (McAdams) falls in love with Tim Lake (Harry Potter actor Domhnall Gleeson), a man who learns that he, like his father (Bill Nighy), has the ability to travel through time. When an unfortunate time travel incident re-writes history to erase Mary and Tim ever meeting, he has to win her heart all over again. READ FULL STORY
