Morgan Trailer


Lee Weathers evaluates potential risks in businesses, businesses that blur the lines of what could be deemed ethically correct. When Lee is assigned a new case, she journey's to a remote scientific facility where they focus in engineering human DNA. Lee is informed that their latest project is a scientifically engineered human who's developed at a far greater speed than any human. By one month old, the baby had already begun walking and her physical and mental development continued to appreciate from then.

5 years later, Morgan is almost fully formed and her handlers have grown incredibly attached to the child that they've cared for since birth. However, her human and synthetic bioengineered elements combined with laboratory style upbringing appear to affected Morgan's thought process and she's unable to set conclusive thoughts on how to behave.

When Morgan violently injures one of her doctor/handlers, Lee is brought in to evaluate what the team ought to do with her. Knowing that Lee's decision could mean the end of Morgan, they are distant from Weather's and must decide just how far they will go to save their experiment.

The Congress Trailer - Robin Wright Sells Her Whole Self To Save Her Son


Robin Wright Jon Hamm Paul Giamatti

Ari Folman’s long awaited follow up to Waltz With Bashir has finally arrived; the Israeli film maker plays with live-action, animation and fantasy in a truly original way with ‘The Congress’, which sees Robin Wright play a version of herself.

Robin WrightRobin Wright lets herself be recorded for future use

Wright became hugely famous two decades ago with The Princess Bride, both in the film and reality, but unlike reality, the Robin Wright in ‘The Congress’ spends the next two decades struggling to find work. So a deal is struck: Hollywood offers her one more chance by preserving her entire image, meaning she’ll star in movies for evermore without ever having a act again.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 4' Won't Be Directed By Marc Webb


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Marc Webb Jamie Foxx Paul Giamatti

Marc Webb has announced that he won't direct the fourth instalment in his Amazing Spider-Man reboot. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may have not even been released yet but the American filmmaker wanted his fans to know that after next year's third movie, he'll be taking a step back from the web-slinging superhero.

Marc Webb

"I'd like to be involved as a consultant", Webb explained, adding "I've already talked to these guys about it, but in terms of directing it, that will close out my tenure. I've had so much fun doing it, but after the third movie, it'll be the time to find something else," he told The Daily Beast at SXSW.

New 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Trailer Looks Awesome, But How Will It Do Against 'The Winter Soldier?'


Andrew Garfield Emma Stone Jamie Foxx Paul Giamatti Martin Sheen Sally Field

There’s one big piece of news on the entertainment circuit that you should be paying attention to: how cool is the new Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer. According to popular opinion, it is with stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone that the franchise has really found its footing and this second film from Garfield’s trilogy looks pretty much amazing, judging from the trailer, released yesterday.

Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx, Spider-Man 2 Still
The special effects look particularly gorgeous.

We already know that the masked superhero will be taking on a trio of The Green Goblin (Chris Cooper) The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Electro (Jamie Foxx,) the latter of whom has a particularly cool scene in the trailer, as he goes after Spider-Man with whips of static electricity. Not to mention that his one line in the trailer is said with enough power to convert any non-believers in Foxx’s aptitude for the role. The point of the trailer is fairly obvious: Electro is coming and the lights are going out. In fact, that could make for some sneaky real-world parallels and maybe a power/electricity analogy here and there, which Marvel have obviously caught on to.

From Action To Art House: Paul Giamatti Adds A Touch Of Excellence To This Year's Upcoming Flicks


Paul Giamatti Paul Rudd Chiwetel Ejiofor Tom Hanks Andrew Garfield

Paul Giamatti is not the sort of actor who gets typecast easily, his first major success was his role in 'American Splendor' in 2001 for which he won an award for Best Breakthrough Performance from National Board of Review of Motion Pictures, among many other nominations, for portraying comic book author Harvey Pekar. His success burned brighter when he won more than 10 accolades for playing depressed wino Miles Raymond in 2004 comedy drama 'Sideways' as well as being nominated for a Golden Globe, and he was later nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in boxing flick 'Cinderella Man' opposite Russell Crowe. Next year will no doubt bring in a few shiny new prizes for his latest projects, many of which are definite must-sees.

2013 has seen the Oscar nominee get involved with a variety of upcoming movie projects including animation, romance and superhero action - and we have to say we're glad to see this gifted artiste stamping some of his humour and intensity all over our movie theatres.

Peter Landesman's directorial feature debut 'Parkland' is due for release imminently (October 4th 2013) and sees Giamatti portray the often forgotten Abraham Zapruder; the amateur photographer who unwittingly videoed the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy and whose footage has been seen by millions across the globe. On researching the role, Giamatti explained in an interview that there was a lot of information about Zapruder in the script, but he also learned a lot about his speech and body language from footage of him before and after the assassination. He will star alongside Zac Efron, Marcia Gay Harden and Billy Bob Thornton.

Paul Giamatti Chats About The Historical Accuracy And Hidden Truths Behind Upcoming "Parkland" And The Kennedy Assasination


Paul Giamatti

Paul Giamatti stars in the upcoming movie Parkland, centering on the events at Parkland Hospital on the day of the Kennedy assassination. The movie is due to be released in just a few short days on October 4. In it, Giamatti takes on the role of Abraham Zapruder, an American clothing manufacturer, who ended up being at in the wrong place at the wrong time and became the accidental chronicler of the assassination. In the below interview, Giamatti talks history and authenticity and explains how the filming process was different this time and why.

Paul Giamatti, Parkland Still
Giamatti takes on the role of accidental journalist Abraham Zapruder.

“I’m interested in American history and I’ve always been interested in this event in particular, so I was very aware of who he was, but I knew nothing about him” Giamatti says, when asked about his reason to choose the part of Zapruder. “So there was something cool about the idea of playing him, because he’s such a strangely anonymous figure, but so important.”

Parkland - Clips


On November 22nd 1963 in Dallas, Texas, the hugely adored President John F. Kennedy was shot to death as he arrived in the city with First Lady Jackie Kennedy. A women's clothing manufacturer named Abraham Zapruder had no idea of the events that would unfold as he set up his camera preparing for Kennedy's arrival; no idea that his footage would be seen by millions repeatedly as the only visual evidence for what took place that day. Few people know anything about this man, or indeed the other people who ended up becoming involved in this historic tragedy, such as the doctors and nurses who were forced to perform immediate life-saving attempts even with their initial shock and devastation, and the family of alleged killer US Marine Lee Harvey Oswald.

This historical drama tells the stories of the lesser known figures who became involved with one of the most famous assassinations in the history of the world ahead its 50th anniversary. It has been directed and written by Peter Landesman who is best known for his sex slavery article 'The Girls Next Door' which was published in the New York Times. 'Parkland' will be released in UK theatres on November 8th 2013.

Paul Giamatti & Paul Rudd Are Just Trying To Be Better People In The 'All Is Bright' Trailer [Trailer]


Paul Giamatti Paul Rudd Amy Landecker

Paul Giamatti stars as the recently parolled, hard on his luck former thief Dennis, a Canadian ex-con who has decided to leave behind his long history of crime in order to prove to the people that matter to him that he is a better man. But life out there is hard for a bad guy trying to turn good, and when the people he cares about have stopped caring in him (or have been led to believe that he is dead), things become even harder as he tries to stay on the straight and narrow for good this time.

All is Bright
Paul Giamatti and Paul Rudd star in the dark comedy

The film follows Dennis as he returns home to New York from a stint in prison, only to find out that his wife Therese (Amy Landecker) has moved on and no longer wants anything to do with him. To make matters worse, the infant daughter that Dennis left behind when he was thrown behind bars has now grown into a young girl and thanks to Therese he can no longer see his daughter again. Why? Because Therese told her that her father died after a long, painful fight with cancer. This may be a Christmas-set movie, but in case you haven't guessed it is hardly the next Home Alone.

All Is Bright Trailer


Dennis is a Canadian former thief who’s just been released on parole, only to come back to New York find that his wife Therese is no longer interested in knowing him and has told his young daughter that he died of cancer. What’s more, finding a job is almost impossible given his criminal past and the current economic state so his hopes of building a life on the straight-on-the-narrow are looking scuppered. However, an opportunity arises when his former partner in crime Rene offers him a job selling Christmas trees in Brooklyn – unfortunately, Rene has now become involved with Therese. Embittered and furious, Dennis is forced to hold on to the poor card life has dealt him if he wants to make sure he can buy his daughter a long yearned for piano for Christmas.

 

‘All Is Bright’ is a comedy drama that does not fail to tug on the old heartstrings now and again. It may be a little early to start thinking on the upcoming festive season, but this really is a story of family and personal values for all year round. It has been directed by Phil Morrison ('Junebug', 'Upright Citizens Brigade', 'Perfect Partner') and is the screen debut of screenwriter Melissa James Gibson. It will be released in US theatres on October 4th 2013.

Downton Abbey's U.S Contingent Swells Following Paul Giamatti Addition


Paul Giamatti Shirley Maclaine

Keeping one eye firmly on the U.S market, where the show is arguably more of a hit than in the U.K (where it is still appreciated, but not with as much fandom), Downton Abbey's producers have made a shrewd move by getting Sideways star Paul Giamatti on board to play the “maverick” brother of Cora, Countess of Grantham.

Gareth Neame, managing director of Carnival Films which makes the programme, said, “We're excited that Paul Giamatti will be joining us on Downton to play Cora's brother Harold, the rather free-spirited uncle to Mary and Edith. We can't wait to see him work alongside Shirley Maclaine, who are both sure to upset the Grantham's apple cart in this year's Christmas Day episode.”

The death of Dan Stevens's Matthew Crawley, who was heir to the Grantham estate, shocked the viewing public. He died in a car accident after visiting his wife and their firstborn in hospital. Sorry, spoilers. But you’re not reading this unless you’ve seen the lot, are you? Downton has been an unprecedented success; it is the highest-rating drama in US broadcaster PBS's 40-year history and has won multiple Emmy and Golden Globe awards.

The American Invasion Continues On "Downton" As Paul Giamatti Lands Series 4 Guest Role


Paul Giamatti

An odd TV collaboration is coming up, as Paul Giamatti has been announced to make a guest appearance on the Masterpiece period drama, Downton Abbey. Giamatti is yet another American to join the cast (at least temporarily) as Shirley McLaine is set to return to the series just on time for dinner (and the season finale.)

Giamatti, of course, has considerable experience as a TV presence having won an Emmy for his portrayal of John Adams in the eponymous HBO miniseries. However, his most significant appearance in the coming years will probably be in The Amazing Spiderman 2, the release date for which has been announced as May 2, 2014. There, Giamatti will done the costume (and attitude) of the brutish comic book villain Rhino.

Check out some pictures from the Amazing Spiderman 2 filmset.

'Turbo' Could Be DreamWorks' Latest Masterstroke [Trailer]


Ryan Reynolds Paul Giamatti Bill Hader Michelle Rodriguez Samuel L Jackson Snoop Dogg

Turbo, the new 3-D animation from DreamWorks Animation, follows the story of an ordinary garden snail whose dream is to become the fastest snail in the world. It stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character, with the voices of Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Bill Hader, Michelle Rodriguez, Samuel L Jackson and Snoop Dogg also lending their voices to the movie. The trailer suggests Turbo is going to be a whole lot of fun.

Watch the Turbo trailer!

Turbo's buddy Chet tries to talk out his snail friend out of his aspirations and does everything within his power to convince him that he should enjoy his relaxed lifestyle. However, when Turbo is admiring the speeding vehicles roaring down the highway, he is sucked into the engine of a racing car and is submerged in a tank of nitrous oxide which causes him to glow brightly. He later comes to realise that it has given him the ability to move at extraordinary pace and Turbo harbours a new dream of competing at the IndyCar races.

See First Shots Of Paul Giamatti As Rhino In The Amazing Spider Man 2! [Pictures]


Paul Giamatti

The first pictures of Paul Giamatti as Rhino for the forthcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have emerged and boy do they show him looking angry (and also a bit chavvy in an Adidas tracksuit.)

So just in case not all of you have read the Spider-Man comics, here’s a bit of history about our main man Rhino. Rhino is one of Spider-Man’s villains who gets by more on brute force and anger than any real brain power, which you’d think would make him pretty easy for Spidey to fool, but the super villain – who spent a lot of his time fighting The Incredible Hulk in the comics too – has super strength and super speed after being on the wrong end of a science experiment (naturally) and is impervious to high caliber bullets, extreme heat and even tank fire in some cases. As if that’s not badass enough, he also has a suit which merely enhances these traits. He might be a bit hotheaded but it’s pretty clear that Rhino is no villain to be trifled with.

We’ve got a few pictures below of Giamatti on set, The Amazing Spider Man 2 currently being filmed in New York. It has to be said, he doesn’t look all that scary to us at the moment, but we imagine once all manner of special effects have been added he’s going to appear pretty formidable indeed. We’re excited.

Will Paul Giamatti Play Rhino In The New Spider-Man Movie?


Paul Giamatti Spider Man

Paul Giamatti is rumoured to be in talks to play Rhino in the newest Spider Man movie, which will be set for release in 2014, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

Giamatti is an unsung hero of Hollywood. He's a chameleon in many ways and has had incredible supporting roles in films such as Saving Private Ryan and The Truman Show, plus a darkly hilarious role as the lead role in American Splendour. He's rarely in the spotlight, but his supporting characters illuminate their respective stars in an understated way. His role as Rhino would almost certainly be a triumph.

Rhino has been both a baddy and a goody in historic Spiderman comics. His first appearance was in 1966 when Rhino was an Soviet 'thug' who had a super-suit which gave him super strength, super speed, and made him entirely invulnerable. However, in later stories he became an ally of Spiderman. Regardless of whether Giamatti will play Rhino it is still unclear as to which side of him we'll see.

Is Paul Giamatti Set For Dream Role In The Amazing Spider-Man 2?


Paul Giamatti Andrew Garfield Jamie Foxx Emma Stone Shailene Woodley Dane DeHaan

Somebody must have been reading when Paul Giamatti expressed a desire to appear in a Spider-Man film, back in 2011. It’s now been reported that the actor is in talks to join the cast for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the reboot which stars Andrew Garfield as the web-firing mutant hero.

Giamatti is apparently in talks to play the villainous Rhino, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The character first appeared in the 41st issue of the comic back in 1966; hailing from a Soviet Bloc country, he wore a suit that made him invulnerable whilst giving him super strength and speed; speaking back in 2011, Giamatti admitted that he loved the character. “I thought Rhino was the greatest thing when I was a little kid,” he commented. “It was a guy who was basically in this rhinoceros outfit and I always thought, ‘Why don’t they have The Rhino in one of their movies,’ but maybe The Rhino wasn’t that big of a deal for anybody but me. If they ever go with The Rhino I would be ready and waiting.”

And it appears that Marvel Entertainment have listened; if he does sign up he’ll be joining an impressive looking cast, with Garfield and Emma Stone both returning. Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley and Dane DeHaan are also appearing. Marc Webb once again directs.

Rock Of Ages Review


Very Good
This raucous trawl through 80s power ballads, rock anthems and gigantic hair is a lot of fun, partly because it throws so many big stars into against-type roles in which they get to sing and dance. But the plot couldn't be any thinner or it wouldn't exist at all.

Small-town girl Sherrie (Hough) takes the bus to 1987 Hollywood to become a rock star. There she meets Drew (Boneta), who has the same dream and works in the famed Bourbon Room on the Sunset Strip. He convinces the owner (Baldwin) to hire her as a barmaid just as diva-rocker Stacee Jaxx (Cruise) comes to play a major gig. Buzzing around him are a Rolling Stone journalist (Akerman) wanting an interview and a right-winger (Zeta-Jones) trying to protect the children from the evils of rock-n-roll.

The Last Station Review


Good
A double love story based on real events from the life of Leo Tolstoy, this period film combines comedy and emotion in a way that's always entertaining, even if it sometimes feels camp and contrived.

Valentin (McAvoy) is a young Tolstoyan in 1910 assigned by the movement's leader Chertkov (Giamatti) to keep an eye on Leo Tolstoy (Plummer) and his sceptical wife Sofya (Mirren). But what Valentin finds is a lively, loving marriage that's strong enough to include opposing views. This isn't good enough for Chertkov, who moves to get Leo to change his will to leave everything to the movement. Which of course enrages Sofya. Meanwhile, Valentin is experiencing his first flush of love with a Tolstoyan commune resident (Condon).

Confidence Review


Extraordinary
If Heist held your attention and The Score kept you guessing, you need to see Confidence, James Foley's stunningly original sting movie that puts the majority of sting movies to shame. Who knew that Foley, the man responsible for brainless thrillers like The Corruptor and Fear, would helm a genre film that outwits even those from acclaimed filmmakers David Mamet and Frank Oz?

Confidence has triple the pizzazz of any caper movie released in the past several years. To say that it keeps you guessing would be misleading; the film has so many twists, turns, and reveals them in such an order that you don't even know where to start guessing. You'll need a scorecard to keep everything in order. Yet, remarkably, in the end, everything adds up without any apparent plot holes. It's astonishing.

Paycheck Review


OK
Sci-fi fans will see clear similarities between John Woo's action/thriller Paycheck and Paul Verhoeven's Total Recall (1991). Both deal with memory and identity, as adapted from stories by author Philip K. Dick. Both star thousand-watt Hollywood celebrities (Ben Affleck here, Governor Schwarzenegger in Recall) in roles that ask little from them. And, most disappointingly, both shun an intellectual and sturdy drama that would fit the subject matter perfectly, choosing action and cornball dialogue instead.

"My life is nothing but highlights," confesses Mike Jennings (Affleck), a genius computer hacker who trades big cash for small chunks of his own memory. Jennings gets rich by dissecting massive programs and passing the goods onto rival companies - at which point, all recent activity is erased from his brain.

Storytelling Review


Excellent
Writer-director Todd Solondz has a knack for making us feel downright uncomfortable. He did it in his twisted debut, Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995), with a young Brendan Sexton III announcing his intentions to rape an even younger Heather Matarazzo. He did it in Happiness (1998), in nearly every scene. And he's providing more squirm-inducing moments in Storytelling, a film with less intensity than Happiness, but with a continuing streak of intellectually challenging dialogue and unforgiving subject matter.

Aside from Solondz's decidedly risky topics, his format in Storytelling takes chances. It presents two separate shorts, entitled "Fiction" and "Non-fiction," with no obvious connection between the two. The only true thread is that both comment on the telling of tales, the shifting of points of view, and the way most people in Solondz's suburban landscapes constantly paddle their painful lives upstream.

Cinderella Man Review


OK
Tickets to Ron Howard's period boxing drama Cinderella Man should come with bootstraps. That way we literally could join the film's heavyweight hero, dutifully played by Russell Crowe, as he sifts through the wreckage left by bill collectors and broken bones to climb his way out of Dickens-level poverty and see the light at the end of his personal tunnel of despair.

American audiences adore underdog stories, particularly those tied to sports. From Rocky to Seabiscuit, we devour worthy longshots given a chance to reclaim such precious commodities as pride, significance, or the undying love of family. That, and anything with Darth Vader in it.

American Splendor Review


Excellent
Comic book heroes like Spider-Man and The Hulk get all the press. Hey, what about the little guy?

Harvey Pekar is the ultimate little guy -- not just in the comics world, where his American Splendor has been an underground phenomenon for decades, but in real life, as he has held down a steady gig as a file clerk in a Cleveland VA hospital since the beginning of the known universe.

Planet Of The Apes Review


Weak

Without the faintest hint of director Tim Burton's uniquely uncanny style, "Planet of the Apes" version 2.0 feels like nothing more than a generic (albeit overblown) sci-fi summer movie -- and a forgettably mediocre one at that.

A passionless, elementary endeavor of wow effects and a yawn plot (which has been reinvented from the 1968 original), the picture opens circa 2029 with astronaut Mark Wahlberg working on a space station, training chimps to pilot one-man pods into electrical storms encountered in deep space.

After losing contact with one chimp in a rather ominous anomaly, Wahlberg establishes his maverick personality (which soon fades into a vanilla version of your standard action hero) by swiping a pod against orders to go rescue him. Once inside the storm, our hero is sucked into a wormhole that turns his helm dead and spits him out to crash land on a faraway world in the distant future where -- as if you didn't know -- a brutal, medieval society of evolved simians enslaves primitive humans as labor and pets.

Cradle Will Rock Review


Very Good

A wonderfully ambitious, old-school ensemble piece, very much in the can-do spirit of the community to which it pays homage, "Cradle Will Rock" is a politically-undertoned dramedy about theater, censorship, ambition, apprehension, oppression, Orson Welles and the Great Depression.

Written and directed by Tim Robbins -- never one to shy away from cause-fueled entertainment -- this passionate labor of love celebrates and fictionalizes a legendary moment in American theater, when the government shut down the performance of a musical produced by the Works Progress Administration -- and the actors, at the risk of losing their jobs during the bleakest economic season in U.S. history, staged it anyway in a show of inspiring solidarity.

The play was entitled "The Cradle Will Rock" and its story of a greedy industrialist taken down by the organized working man made a lot of federal bureaucrats see red -- as in communism.

Man On The Moon Review


Good

Seeing the biopic "Man On the Moon" is like being at a seance in a comedy club.

Director Milos Forman and star Jim Carrey conjure up the spirit of their subject -- Andy Kaufman, that most eccentric of professional oddballs, that patron saint of the practical joke -- with such effective Ouija-dom that at times is as if his ghost has taken over the film.

All the buzz you've probably heard about Carrey's performance is true. A Kaufman aficionado from way back, he does more than just mimic Andy's mannerisms and repeat his routines -- it's like Kaufman has slipped inside Carrey's skin (shall I compare thee to "Being John Malkovich"?) and won a battle for control of his body. There's still a wee bit of Carrey peeking out, but that sliver his own style serves to create a fascinating Kaufman-Carrey alloy.
