City Island – International Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on December 29, 2009

Meet the Rizzos, a family that might get along a lot better if only they could tell each other the truth. Dad Vince is the worst offender. But since the prison guard won’t even admit that poker night is in fact acting class, how’s he ever going to explain about his illegitimate son? His daughter works as a stripper when she’s supposed to be in college, while young Vinnie Jr has a secret sexual fetish that involves a 24-hour webcam and the family’s 300-pound neighbour. Vince’s wife Joyce is the family’s rock, but it’s been a year since she enjoyed intimacy with her husband, and it’s no surprise she thinks poker night spells A-F-F-A-I-R. When former prisoner Tony enters the Rizzos’ lives, Joyce begins to suspect that the handsome young Tony isn’t who Vince says he is. City Island is a funny, touching and smart family tale about the secrets of the past catching up with the lies of the present, and accepting that nobody’s perfect – least of all your loved ones.

Starring Andy Garcia, Julianna Margulies, Steven Strait, Curtiss Cook, Dominik Garcia Lorido, Ezra Miller, Emily Mortimer, Alan Arkin.

Harry Brown – Trailer for Michael Caine’s tough new film

Posted by LiveFor on September 16, 2009

http _4.bp.blogspot.com__Llxf0Z81zHA_SY2FH4n9rmI_AAAAAAAAD8Y_xzYEw7dHvz4_s1600_harry-brown-michael-caine-EMFL-01This looks very good indeed and nice to see Caine get back into some action again.

Get Carter immediately comes to mind as Caine is once again on the road for revenge, daring the foolhardy to stand in his way at their peril.

Caine is older now, more used to picking up accolades for playing mild-mannered butlers (a la Dark Knight) than gun-toting, head-banging Carter.

But it seems there is still plenty of testosterone in the tank as he now adopts the guise of a retired Marine in this film that started shooting in late January in London.

As Harry Brown he adopts the guise of a retired Marine widower. Get it? Retired, yes, and single to boot, but sitting on a wealth of combat skills.

Caine/Brown begins happily enough, although living a somewhat lonely existence, with only his best friend David Bradley (Harry Potter, Hot Fuzz) for company in a modern day Britain where drugs are the currency of the day and guns run the streets.

The bad news for the country’s lowlifes is that they stupidly murder Caine’s mate Bradley, compelling him to settle the score.

Billed as an urban western, the film is the feature debut for director Daniel Barber, who shot to fame when his 2008 short The Tonto Woman was nominated for an Oscar.

Caine is joined front and centre by pros Emily Mortimer and Iain Glen as well as relative newcomers Charlie Creed-Miles (The Fifth Element), and Liam Cunningham (Hunger, The Wind That Shakes the Barley).

The nasties are drawn from a group of up-and-coming British talent including Ben Drew aka Plan B (Adulthood), Jack O’Connell (Eden Lake), Lee Oakes (Two Pints of Lager and a Packet Of Crisps), Joseph Gilgun (This Is England) and Sean Harris (24 Hour Party People).

Harry Brown was written by Gary Young (Shooters, Spivs) and should be given a deft look by Control’s director of photography Martin Ruhe.

Christina Hendricks gets Life as We Know It

Posted by LiveFor on August 27, 2009

I’ve moved to www.liveforfilms.com

“Mad Men” co-star Christina Hendricks is set to star alongside Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel in Warner Bros. romancer Life as We Know It (plus she’s recently worn a corset on the cover of NY Magazine) and is on the cover of Esquire magazine.

Hendricks was also in Firefly, but I always wonder which comic book character she should play – Power Girl maybe? Anyone else agree or have any other suggestions? Would she make a good Catwoman – go vote in our poll if you think she would.

Greg Berlanti will direct Life As We Know It and will start shooting in Autumn.

The film follows two unattached adults whose worlds are turned upside down when their mutual best friends die in an accident and name them as caregivers of their orphaned daughter. Hendricks will portray the best friend to Heigl’s and Duhamel’s characters.

Heigl and her mother Nancy Heigl are exec producing the film.

Hendricks will soon be seen alongside Emily Mortimer in the indie drama Leonie.

Update: Now it looks as if fellow Mad Man hottie, January Jones, is heading to the big screen – more here (she should really do her jacket up).

Here is a pic of Hendricks at the 2010 Golden Globes. Check out the winners.

Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on June 11, 2009


The story of two U.S. marshals, Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), who are summoned to a remote and barren island off the cost of Massachusetts to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from the island’s fortress-like hospital for the criminally insane.

But nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems. And neither is Teddy Daniels. Is he there to find a missing patient? Or has he been sent to look into rumors of Ashecliffe’s radical approach to psychiatry? The closer Teddy and Chuck get to the truth, the more elusive it becomes, and the more they begin to believe that they may never leave Shutter Island. Because someone is trying to drive them insane. . .

Directed by Scorsese this is looking very good and a bit Hitchcockian methinks.

As well as the two main leads it also stars Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow, and Jackie Earle Haley. Let me know what you think of the trailer.

Could this be in the running for an Oscar?

City Island – Andy Garcia’s latest film

Posted by LiveFor on June 6, 2009

”It’s a dysfunctional-family dramedy,” says Andy Garcia of City Island (out later this year), which is set in the titular Bronx neighborhood. As corrections officer Vince, Garcia brings home an inmate who’s actually his long-lost son, all while attending acting classes on the sly. ”Vince has a lot of hidden aspirations that he’s not prepared to take responsibility for,” he says. In this scene, Vince hangs out with a classmate (Emily Mortimer, left), who is hiding something of her own. Says Garcia, ”Everyone’s got a secret.”

Shutter Island – Teaser poster for Martin Scorsese’s next film

Posted by LiveFor on March 28, 2009

RopeofSilicon user “Friends of Eddie” last sent in scans from Cahiers du Cinéma’s January 2009 edition with a diary written by Argentinean filmmaker Celine Murga based on her experiences on the set of Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island and today he returns with a piece of teaser art from the film scanned out of the Berliner Zeitung newspaper as part of a story about TMG/Concorde, the film’s distributor.

Since it is a scan you can slightly see some of the words bleeding through on the lighter areas but for the most part it is a top quality image, but I can’t help get the feeling it is still an early piece of artwork since the font used to write “Whatever happened to patient 67?” on the wall is just a generic font and isn’t exactly up to final art quality.

Shutter Island is currently due out on October 2 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow, Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer and Jackie Earle Haley. The official site is also live, but merely with placeholder information.

Harry Brown – Michael Caine is going to sort out the scum

Posted by LiveFor on March 15, 2009

Get Carter immediately comes to mind as Caine is once again on the road for revenge, daring the foolhardy to stand in his way at their peril.

The film expects to wrap mid-March after seven weeks on location in London and at Elstree Studios.

Michael Caine is The Equalizer…I mean Harry Brown

Posted by LiveFor on February 7, 2009

Empire had these first couple of photos of Michael Caine as the titular Harry Brown. Directed by Daniel Barber it also stars Emily Mortimer and Liam Cunningham.

The shots make Caine look a lot like Ewar Woowar (that’s Edward Woodward without the D’s!) from The Equaliser, but that’s just my opinion.

Harry Brown is an ex-Marine and widow forced to journey through a seedy world of drugs and guns to take revenge for the brutal death of his best friend at the hands of a gang of thugs.It is being described as a mix between Get Carter, Gran Torino and Taken. It all sounds like good stuff.

Transsiberian – Poster and Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on July 12, 2008

I think this is a great poster. Doesn’t tell you much about the movie, but gives you a sense of space and foreboding. I always meant to do the Transsiberian railway after finishing university, but never got around to it. Still always time for that.

An American couple, Roy (Woody Harrelson) and Jessie (Emily Mortimer), decide to
take the long way home from their recent sojourn in Asia on the legendary Trans-siberian Express train from Beijing to Moscow. On their way, they meet another couple from the West, Carlos (Eduardo Noriega) and Abby (Kate Mara), with whom they quickly form a familiar bond that often unites fellow travellers away from home. When Roy accidentally gets separated from the group at a stopover, Jessie begins to realize that their compatriots aren’t exactly who or
what they seem to be. The real danger begins to surface as a deceitful Russian detective (Sir Ben Kingsley) and locals terrorize Jessie in this unforgettable journey.

Directed by Brad Anderson. Here is the trailer.
