Tag: Gary Oldman (11-19 of 19)

Casting Net: Minka Kelly heads to the White House. Plus, Gary Oldman and Rupert Grint

Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly will play Jackie Kennedy in Lee Daniel’s upcoming film The Butler, which tells the story of White House butler Eugene Allen (played by Forest Whitaker) who served under eight presidents. The all-star cast also includes Oprah Winfrey, Matthew McConaughey (as John F. Kennedy), John Cusack, Alan Rickman, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding Jr., David Oyelowo, Lenny Kravitz, and Terrence Howard. [Screen Daily]

Gary Oldman (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) is set to play the bad guy again, this time as the scientist Norton who creates the titular cyborg in Jose Padilha’s upcoming remake of Robocop. Robocop will be played by Joel Kinnaman (The Killing). The film is set for a summer 2013 release. [THR]

• From Harry Potter to punk rock? Rupert Grint is set to star in two upcoming films. In CBGB, he’ll play rocker Cheetah Chrome opposite Alan Rickman as legendary club owner Hilly Kristal. Will taking direction from a gritty club owner be much different than from Professor Snape? The second stop for the redhead is The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, where he’ll star opposite Shia LaBeouf. [Variety]

'The Dark Knight Rises' trailer: A bleak vision of Batman's future

In four days, by all reports audiences will be streaming in droves to see The Avengers, a big, rousing, brightly-colored superhero movie filled with aliens, Norse gods, and giant green rage monsters. Before that movie begins, however, they’ll see the trailer for a very different kind of superhero movie, The Dark Knight Rises. That trailer was just released on the web, the culmination of a viral marketing campaign that began this morning. The preview paints a bleak, almost nihilistic picture of what awaits audiences on July 20 — check out the trailer below, and then let’s talk about our first impressions:  READ FULL STORY

'Lawless' trailer: Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf are hard-boiled bootleggers

Who doesn’t love a good Depression-era moonshiner gangster pic? Previously titled The Wettest County, our first look at John Hilcoat’s film about bootlegger brothers (Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, and Jason Clarke) in Franklin County, Va. features some fabulously outré accents and enough hard-boiled dialogue to turn an ear of corn into whiskey so strong it’d grow hair on a newborn baby’s behind. I’m not entirely sure what that previous sentence is supposed to mean except that I’m already plumb keen on this film. Check out the trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Amanda Peet catches a 'Thief' role, Mia Wasikowska to become 'Madame Bovary'

• Mia Wasikowska partakes in some unpardonable Frenchness in a Madame Bovary reboot. Paul Giamatti is also signed on to play town apothecary Monsieur Homais in Gustave Flaubert’s classic tragedy about a woman who escapes a loveless marriage through adultery. [Variety]

Abigail Breslin may play a penniless, pregnant teen in a big-screen adaptation of Kristin Hannah‘s The Things We Do For Love. [Deadline] READ FULL STORY

Pitt, Clooney, Davis, Mara and more talk performances, inspiration at annual Oscar luncheon

George Clooney came for the “free booze.” Octavia Spencer was stoked to just be in the “room with all those luminaries,” while Kenneth Branagh claimed it was “the camaraderie” that brought him to the annual Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. But no matter what their reason for attending, most of the folks in the acting categories first stopped by the press room to talk shop, give praise and, in the case of Nick Nolte, threaten to tell a joke (which never materialized).

Here is taste of what the actors had to say about their performances, awards season, and their fellow nominees: READ FULL STORY

'My Week With Marilyn', 'Tinker Tailor' lead BAFTA longlists

With 16 inclusions each, My Week With Marilyn and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy are leading the pack in the longlists for the 2012 British Academy Film Awards, which were announced today. In addition to making the cut for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay, both films have their stars in contention. (Marilyn‘s Michelle Williams, Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Redmayne, Judi Dench, and Zoe Wanamaker, as well as Tinker Tailor‘s Gary Oldman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, John Hurt, and Kathy Burke, are all on the acting longlists.)

Following Marilyn and Tinker Tailor for the most entries on the BAFTA longlists were The Iron Lady (14), The Artist, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Midnight in Paris, War Horse (13 each),  The Help, Hugo, Drive (12 each), and The Ides of March and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 (11 each.) Notable exclusions from the BAFTA longlist include Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Melancholia, and Martha Marcy May Marlene, while major Oscar contender The Tree of Life earned just one mention in the cinematography category.

The longlist kicks off the first round of voting for the BAFTAs, which includes 15 entries in most categories. The five nominees will be chosen from these longlists in the second round. However, there are only five for animation and documentary in the first round of voting.  Nominations in all categories, including the shortlist for the Rising Star Award, will be announced on Jan. 17. Check out the entire BAFTAs 2012 longlist, including Original Screenplay, Adapted Screenplay, Documentary, Foreign Language Film, and Outstanding British Film here.  (Note: * marks  the five chapter picks.)

Second 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' trailer decodes plot details

A new trailer for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy infiltrated the web today with more suspense and world-renowned British actors. Like the previous trailer, we see Gary Oldman as John le Carré’s iconic George Smiley, trying to track down a mole within MI-6. The new clip reveals more of the plot and the roles for some of the supporting actors, including Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch, and John Hurt. But before you get too excited, we should warn you that the date at the end of the trailer is for the European release. You’ll have to wait until Nov. 18 to catch this spy thriller in theaters stateside. Give a look.


New 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' poster might require Ovaltine decoder ring

There are very few things the new code-laced poster for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy spells out clearly. That’s definitely Gary Oldman, the film’s lead, made entirely of cryptic-looking code. There’s the mysterious title of the spy film, based on the John le Carré novel of the same name. Beneath that is a list of names that includes a collection of some of Britain’s finest actors, like Tom Hardy and Colin Firth. Then there’s le Carré and director Tomas Alfredson, the latter best known for his previous film, the cult classic Let the Right One In. And finally, just bellow Alfredson is a simple tagline: “The secret is out.”

Though the understated poster has little to say, what it and the atmospheric trailer released a few weeks ago make certain is that this is a secret worth discovering. With a cast like this, a story by le Carré — who is widely considered the premiere spy novelist — and Alfredson behind the camera, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy screams potential with a steely, cool side.
