Forget 'Big Eyes', Christoph Waltz Would've Done ANY Movie With Tim Burton


Christoph Waltz Tim Burton Amy Adams

Christoph Waltz may be a winner of two Academy Awards, but it seems even this extraordinary actor gets starstruck from time to time, and none more so than on Tim Burton's forthcoming true story drama 'Big Eyes'.

Christoph Waltz is Walter Keane in 'Big Eyes'

The 'Inglourious Basterds' star plays Walter Keane in the biopic, a fraudulent 'artist' from the 60s who took the credit for his wife Margaret Keane's remarkable paintings before she subsequently took him to court and won damages for his deception. And while the story is amazing in so many ways, Waltz admits he didn't care who he played, he was that excited to be working with visionary filmmaker Tim Burton.

Amy Adams Explains Unusually Humble Role In Tim Burton's 'Big Eyes'


Amy Adams Tim Burton Christoph Waltz

Amy Adams has taken an unexpected turn in her acting career, as she appears in the role of modest and infamously defrauded painter Margaret Keane in Tim Burton's forthcoming biographical drama 'Big Eyes'.

Amy Adams and Margaret Keane
Amy Adams meets the real Margaret Keane

It seems that Amy Adams has been displaying a string of hugely ambitious and massively extroverted characters in recent years: from dedicated cult leader Peggy Dodd in 'The Master' and drug-taking Beat Generationer Joan Vollmer in 'On The Road, to professional con-artist Sydney Prosser in 'American Hustle' and, of course, high-flying journalist Lois Lane in 'Man Of Steel'. Adams had been taking a serious interest in strong-willed female figures, and admits she was 'at a time where I wanted to play really confident characters'.

Big Eyes Trailer


Margaret is an inspirational American painter desperate to sell her unique artwork depicting women and children with outsize eyes. She takes to the glamorous North Beach in San Francisco in a bid to try and make some money selling on the street and it's there she meets the charming Walter Keane, who takes a strong interest in her talent. The pair marry and have a child named Susan, but things take a dramatic turn when Walter starts selling the paintings under his own name, claiming that art by women doesn't sell as well. While revelling in their luxury, Margaret starts to feel uneasy - despite her apparent dreams of success coming true. She decides enough is enough and takes Walter to court, insisting that she is the true creator of every single Big Eye painting. He's prepared to fight back, but just how far is she willing to go to prove the truth?

Horrible Bosses 2 Review


OK

Like The Hangover, Horrible Bosses was a movie no one really wanted to see a sequel to, but here it is anyway: the same film, but even more inane. It is also likely to make plenty of money from audiences looking for mindless entertainment on a Saturday night. Although "mindless" seems almost complimentary when a movie is as idiotic as this one is. There's so little to its plot that the whole film seems to evaporate before the end of the climactic chase scene.

It's been a couple of years since Nick, Kurt and Dale (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) tried to solve their problems by trying to kill their bosses. Instead, they've become inventors, and have just sold their Shower Buddy to a popular catalogue company owned by Bert (Christoph Waltz). They go all out to fill his order, putting their necks on the line, and Bert leaves them hanging there. Faced with the prospect of losing everything, they again consult their criminal pal Jones (Jamie Foxx), who helps them launch a "kidnaping". The idea is to grab Bert's son Rex (Chris Pine) and demand a ransom to cover their debts. But Rex takes over the operation, asking for a lot more cash and causing a lot more chaos. They also run into a couple of their old bosses: sex-crazed Julia (Jennifer Aniston) is still determined to sleep with Dale, while Harken (Kevin Spacey) can still freak them out from behind bars.

Director-writer Anders and cowriter Morris use almost the exact same formula this time, going for laughs in a carefully plotted caper in which everything that can go wrong does. Although instead of merely being inept, these people are all morons. Bateman's Nick is essentially the straight man in the movie, and even he fails to notice that they've borrowed and spent a vast sum of cash without even a simple contract with Bert. Meanwhile, Kurt and Dale are mind-achingly stupid, bungling every single moment so completely that it's hard to see them as functioning adults. Pine isn't much better, but at least we haven't seen this schtick from him before, and he's rather good at it.

Christoph Waltz To Play Classic Villain Ernst Blofeld (w/Cat) In Bond 24


Christoph Waltz Daniel Craig

Two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz is expected to play the classic villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld in Bond 24. Waltz was named as Daniel Craig's latest opponent earlier this month and, according to the Mail on Sunday, he will bring Blofeld back to the big-screen for the first time in three decades.

Christoph WaltzChristoph Waltz will reportedly play Ernst Stavro Blofeld in Bond 24

The news comes after the Bond franchise concluded a long-running legal case with the estate of Blofeld co-creator Kevin McClory in November last year. The move, which saw McClory's family sell its remaining stake in 007, allowed for rights to characters introduced in 1965's Thunderball to be used in future movies.

In the wake of their struggle to murder their bosses in the first film, 'Horrible Bosses 2' sees Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) attempting to set up their own company. When a rival investor (Christoph Waltz) tries to put them out of business, they put their previous criminal past to use and kidnap the investor's son, Rex (Chris Pine), in an attempt to blackmail him. Rex is impressed by their plan, and decides to help them scam his father, while steadily escalating the severity of their crime. As Rex continues to drag the three friends into a battle with his father, they find themselves crossing paths with Detective Hatcher (Jonathan Banks) and Dr. Julia Harris (Jennifer Anniston), one of the previous film's horrible bosses.

'Horrible Bosses 2' Trailer: The Scheming Trio Are Back For Number Two (Poop Jokes Included)


Jennifer Aniston Jason Bateman Jason Sudeikis Charlie Day Kevin Spacey Christoph Waltz Chris Pine Jamie Foxx

The trailer has been released for the upcoming comedy sequel, Horrible Bosses 2, giving us our first glimpse of the follow-up to the successful and hilarious 2011 movie. Number two (yes, there are poop jokes in the movie) sees Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day reprise their roles as the unhappy workers who find themselves in even more of a pickle than before.

After having tried to murder their respective bosses in the previous film, Nick, Dale and Kurt are now under three new bosses who are all as equally mean or deranged. The trio decide that they'll start their own business so that they don't have to take orders from superiors ever again.

The new film welcomes Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine but of course, we'll be seeing some familiar faces, such as Kevin Spacey, Jennifer, and Jamie Foxx return in the sequel.

Horrible Bosses 2 - Teaser Trailer


Having previously got involved with a scheme to kill their abusive bosses (a plan which didn't go exactly as they thought), Nick, Dale and Kurt think they can do anything. Now under three new bosses that are equally mean, they decide that they want to start up their own business so that they don't have to take orders from superiors ever again. Everything seems to be in place until a cunning investor forces them to lose control of their entrepreneurial plans. With no legal standing and no money, the trio turn to their trusty crime consultant who suggests they start to be a little more ruthless if they want to pull off their latest scheme; to kidnap the investor's son and hold him for ransom. Nick, Dale and Kurt are hoping that everything will go to plan this time - but that's looking unlikely.

Muppets Most Wanted Review


Good

Where the 2011 reboot felt effortless in the way it recaptured that warmly anarchic Muppets humour, this sequel feels like it's working every step of the way. Yes, it's riotously silly and occasionally hilarious, but there are large chunks of the movie that just aren't funny at all, mainly because there's so much emphasis on the tangled web of a plot that the characters get lost in the shuffle.

It starts just as the last movie ended: the Muppets decide to do a sequel based on an idea from interloper Dominic (Ricky Gervais) to take their show on a world tour. But Dominic is actually in league with super-villain frog Constantine (Matt Vogel), who has just escaped from a gulag. So when the Muppet Show lands in Berlin, he orchestrates a swap: Constantine takes Kermit's place in the show, while Kermit (Steve Whitmire) is sent to Siberia under the watchful eye of guard Nadya (Tina Fey). Meanwhile, Interpol agent Jean-Pierre (Burrell) and CIA operative Sam Eagle (Eric Jacobson) are investigating a series of robberies mysteriously linked to Muppet performances in Berlin, Madrid and Dublin.

All of this builds to a head in London, where Constantine is staging an elaborate wedding to Miss Piggy (Jacobson) to distract from his real plan to steal the Crown Jewels. But this plot-strand feels predictable and limp compared to much more interesting character interaction. For example, scenes between Kermit and Fey are a lot more fun as they plan a musical revue with the inmates (and get Trejo and Liotta sing and dance!). And the escalating banter between Sam Eagle and Burrell is hilarious even as it indulges in cheap Euro-jokes.

The Zero Theorem Review


Good

Lively and imaginative, this raucous adventure-drama recaptures the ramshackle futurism of director Terry Gilliam's 1985 masterpiece Brazil, throwing a lonely guy into a series of events that get increasingly surreal. And while we never lose interest, the plot seems to fall apart about halfway in, circling around itself and the pungent themes that ooze through every scene.

The central figure is Qohen (Waltz), a genius who feels like life has lost its meaning. He hates the corporate mentality at Mancom, where both his manager (Thewlis) and the computer system drive him nuts. Then after a chance encounter with the big boss (Damon), he's given a new assignment to work at home crunching numbers to prove the Zero Theorem. Everyone is vague about what this theorem is, but Qohen likes being away from the office. But now he's distracted by the seductive Bainsley (Thierry), who puts on a sexy nurse outfit and lures him into a virtual reality environment. He's also assigned 15-year-old computer nerd Bob (Hedges) to keep his system up and running. Or maybe everyone is spying on him.

The central theme is the search for meaning in life, which is echoed in Qohen's inability to feel, taste or properly experience anything. And the theorem itself turns out to be an attempt to prove conclusively that everything is meaningless. This allows Gilliam to deploy his vast imagination in every scene, with a flood of corporate and religious imagery, suggestive innuendo and topical gags about free will in a society that values making money at the expense of actually living. All of the actors grab on to these ideas, adding comical physicality and knowing humour to each scene. 

Continue reading: The Zero Theorem Review

The Zero Theorem - Trailer And Feaurette


In a flamboyant, futuristic universe, Qohen Leth works as a computer hacker desperate to uncover the meaning of life. He appears to suffer from a range of conflicting phobias and his eccentricity forces him to stand out to the formidable Management who enlist him to try and crack the most fundamental formula of mankind history, the Zero Theorem. Meanwhile, he is waiting desperately for an important phone call that will reveal to him the purpose of human existence. But as he absorbs himself deeply with his own work at the dilapidated chapel he calls home, he finds himself repeatedly distracted by Management's teenager son Bob and a stunning blonde seductress named Bainsley who was specifically hired by the dictatorial authority. Qohen's sanity is frequently tested as it becomes more and more clear that the Zero Theorem is trying to tell him that all is for nothing.

'The Zero Theorem' is a vibrant sci-fi drama set in an almost Orwellian dystopian future. It has been directed by the Oscar nominated Terry Gilliam ('Twelve Monkeys', 'Brazil', 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail') and written by Pat Rushin ('No Ordinary Sun' short) in his full-length screenplay debut. It has already caused a stir having won the Future Film Festival Digital Award at the Venice Film Festival and it is set to be released in the UK on March 14th 2014.

Leonardo Dicaprio Jamie Foxx Christoph Waltz

Leonardo Dicaprio has signed up to play the 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, in an upcoming biopic. The film, produced by DiCaprio's Appian Way, will be based on A. Scott Berg's acclaimed biography of the divisive Democrat leader, reports THR.

Alfonso Cuaron's Terrifying 'Gravity' To Open 70th Venice Film Festival [Trailer]


Alfonso Cuaron Sandra Bullock George Clooney Terry Gilliam Matt Damon Christoph Waltz

Alfonso Cuaron's techno-thriller Gravity - starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as astronauts stuck in space - will open the 70th Venice Film Festival this year. The movie, which could be either absolutely fantastic, groundbreaking cinema or dull sci-fi, will not vie for the coveted Golden Lion award and will screen out of competition.

Bullock plays Dr Ryan Stone, an engineer on her first shuttle mission, while Clooney plays the veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky. During a routine spacewalk, their shuttle is completely destroyed and radio contact to Earth is lost.

Both Cuaron and Bullock were on-hand to present new footage of Gravity at Comic-Con San Diego this week and spoke about the making of the movie.

Epic Review


Good

Although this adventure's premise will appeal to children, and the child within us, the film itself is far too simplistic to be a classic. But at least the animation looks terrific, with swooping action and an inventive use of nature imagery. The result is relatively engaging, consistently entertaining and never remotely suspenseful.

The story begins as teen Mary Katherine, better known as MK (voiced by Seyfried), returns home to live with her mad-inventor dad (Sudeikis) after her mother dies. Dad's house is on the edge of the forest, where he is obsessed with discovering a miniature world of beings who keep the natural world running. But his focus on work has alienated everyone in his life, and MK is still struggling to break through to him. Then she has a freak encounter with the tiny Queen Tara (Knowles), who shrinks her to two inches tall. Suddenly she's working with the Queen's chief leafman Ronin (Farrell), a rogue soldier Nod (Hutcherson), and a goofy slug and snail duo (Ansari and O'Dowd) to save the forest from the evil Mandrake (Waltz).

The script eliminates all complexity in its depiction of good and evil. Mandrake is bent on destroying the forest for no real reason, trying to bring his creeping grey decay to what is otherwise an idyllic, magical world drenched in colourful flowers, verdant ferns and trickling brooks. In other words, it's so obvious who is going to win this battle that we never for a moment worry about our rag-tag group of heroes, no matter what violence they face. So we sit back and enjoy the animators' work. While the humans look like plastic dolls, the bugs, birds, plants and critters are simply astounding, and some of the action scenes are genuinely exhilarating.

Coen Brother’s Inside Llewyn Davis - The ‘Best So Far At Cannes’?


Ethan Coen Coen Brothers Christoph Waltz Steven Spielberg Cannes Film Festival

Joel and Ethan Coen, who go by the collective pseudonym of The Coen Brothers, seem to have struck gold with their latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis, which is emerging as a front-runner for the Palm D’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Described by The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw as "best so far at Cannes," the new Coen Brother’s flick caused quite a stir when it debuted at the prestigious film festival. “Cannes audiences just heard a clean, hard crack: the sound of the Coen brothers hitting one out of the park,” read Bradshaw's review. “Their new film is brilliantly written, terrifically acted, superbly designed and shot; it's a sweet, sad, funny picture about the lost world of folk music which effortlessly immerses us in the period.” The Atlantic go as far as to say Llewyn is “Fargo good,” adding in their review: “Their new movie ranks with their very best (Fargo, No Country for Old Men, A Serious Man) in its nearly pitch-perfect balance of biting satirical humour and deep reserves of feeling."

Suspected Gunshots At Cannes - Christoph Waltz Rushed Off Stage


Cannes Film Festival Christoph Waltz

This year’s Cannes Film Festival is quickly turning into a hotbed of crime. First, more than a million dollars worth of jewellery was stolen in a heist, now people are screaming following suspected gunshots.

This kind of stuff usually happens only in the movies! The criminality is less impressive when host Michel Denisot said the noise had been caused by blanks, but for a brief time, the gun-wielding man/woman declared they had a grenade. Given that no one was hurt, we’re going to put this down as ‘exciting’ and, again, ‘only happens in the movies’. The other big story from Cannes was also crime related, as a jewellery heist put a dampener on the red-carpeted proceedings. Commander Bernard Mascarelli, a judicial police spokesman in Nice, said:"Numbers have been put forward that we're still trying to verify, but the figure of $1m ... we're in that range." He added: "Apparently this [hotel guest] was someone who was targeted because it wasn't someone who had been seeking attention...” talking of the Chopard employee, reportedly an American, who is being questioned. “There must have been either an inside complicity, or people who were in contact with this person and knew that the person had jewels," he said.

So overall, Cannes has been pretty exciting, but for all of the wrong reasons. Gatsby opened it, etc etc, it’s glamorous, etc etc, and there are other films. Okay fine, now we want to know more about the great Cannes Jewellery Heist of 2013. We’re also predicting a film by 2016.

Django Unchained: The Alternative Cast That Never Was


Quentin Tarantino Will Smith Jamie Foxx Christoph Waltz Leonardo Dicaprio Michael K. Williams

Django Unchained caused controversy even before it came out, with people questioning whether Quentin Tarantino should be making a film about slavery, especially considering it was a comedy drama, and was very, very gory.

Tarantino does what Tarantino does, though. And he does whatever he wants. Having made people laugh about Nazi-occupied France and slavery in the southern belt of America, the legendary director will helm a third historical film, completing a trilogy of sorts. But with with all the gun violence and racial tension surrounding the film – a film that won multiple awards – the casting secrets were never revealed.
