Murder On The Orient Express Trailer Finally Offers Some Meat To The Story We Know

21 hours ago

Murder on the Orient Express is a film that is probably entering the “passion project” space, but Kenneth Branagh has a pretty good record with movies that might seem unnecessary or unmanageable. There are a lot of hurdles to overcome in putting this one on film again, and that’s after you get past reinventing something that had an unbeatable cast already. While new audiences will perhaps find much to love in a story that has sucked people in for years, you have to wonder how many times the indoctrinated can watch the same murder mystery.

In any event, the movie is finally giving us a feel for the film and letting us see some of the actors at work. While the cast has a lot of big names, all of whom will have some interesting work to do with these characters, Johnny Depp is in a particularly good place to show off his abilities, »

The Cast Of The Good Place Was In The Dark Too. Watch Them Learn The Secret

21 September 2017 6:58 AM, PDT

Now that the second season of The Good Place has hit, and we have some idea how the show can continue after the big reveal, Kristen Bell offered up a special treat to Entertainment Weekly, the cast reaction to learning the twist for themselves. Throughout filming of the series only Bell and Ted Danson knew the overall story, so when it finally became necessary to let everyone in on the joke, Bell decided to see what their reactions looked like.

The video is creator Michael Schur talking the cast through the final moments of the first season, and it’s awesome to watch them try to take it all in. It seems like D’Arcy Carden puts it together a little faster than the rest, and then has to keep herself from shouting out her guess.

Wonderstruck Trailer Has Todd Haynes Weaving Wild Magic

20 September 2017 5:01 PM, PDT

Todd Haynes (Carol, Far From Heaven) is hoping to weave a magical, period tale again with Wonderstruck, based on Brian Selznick’s novel, and if we can believe the trailer he’s definitely done it.

The trailer unfortunately only gives us hints at what the film might be about, but those hints show off the bizarre and wondrous journey we’ll be taking with Ben and Rose. Growing up in two different eras, two children follow mysterious clues toward goals they can’t quite fathom, and it turns out that their quests lead down oddly similar roads.

The film stars Julianne Moore, Oakes Fegley (Pete’s Dragon), Michelle Williams, Jaden Michael and Millicent Simmonds, and while it would probably give too much away, it would be nice if we could get a bit more of Julianne Moore’s character. While that might be true no matter who was working things, »

THR Laughs At Legitimacy By Running Big, Bonkers Goop Ad As “Interview” With Gwyneth Paltrow

20 September 2017 2:05 PM, PDT

In a new interview in The Hollywood Reporter, buried in the mix of the somewhat suspect history of Goop, its monetary projections and recent round of investments, and what basically amounts to a regurgitation of Gwyneth Paltrow‘s business plan, you’ll find the curious statement that Paltrow is, “putting acting on the back burner.” Though that’s really rather glossed over, it’s an odd note if you’re paying enough attention to catch it. While THR isn’t exactly the kind of medium to avoid things like relationship news, general celebrity gossip, and other stretches on the idea of “reporting” on “Hollywood,” there’s always been something mostly “serious” about THR.

When an interview with a personality, even one who is certainly connected to the industry in general, includes the idea that said personality is putting acting (read: Hollywood) on the back burner, you might wonder why you »

Tin Star Review – Tim Roth Tackles Big Oil And Personality Flaws

20 September 2017 10:53 AM, PDT

If you know Tim Roth, and can appreciate watching one of the world’s finest actors no matter what he’s in, Tin Star doesn’t need to sell you. If you need more, things get a little complicated, especially if you have trouble suspending disbelief when it comes to somewhat laughably evil people.

Something like a mix of Longmire, Fargo, and tragedy porn, Tin Star stars Tim Roth as Jim Worth, a London cop who has moved his family to a small town in Canada to take over as the chief of police. What seems like a standard move out of the big city for a more idyllic life in a rural community quickly runs into the machinations of an oil company and its plans for a nearby refinery. Events almost immediately turn tragic and Jim finds himself struggling anew with his alcohol and drug addiction.
