In case you needed more proof that the days of TV being a dumping ground for washed-up movie stars are over, take a look at True Detective, then at HBO’s upcoming pilot Westworld. The new series, if picked up will star no less than Anthony Hopkins and noted Marilyn Manson-dater Evan Rachel Wood.

Westworld is a serial adaptation of a 1973 film written by Jurrassic Park’s Michael Crichton. The film was set at an amusement park, but I’m thinking over the course of the series, they may need to leave the amusement park now and again. J.J. Abrams Bad Robot studios is producing, because that’s what they do.

Hopkins will play the chairman of the park, and Wood will play a farm girl who discovers her life is a painfully constructed lie.

Sounds like an HBO show, all right!

Scarlett Johansson will recreate cinema‘s most famous shower scene. No. Not the one from Porky’s. Johansson has signed on to play Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho.

The film is based on a non-fiction book and will be directed by Anvil! The Story of Anvil helmer Sacha Gervasi with a script by Black Swan‘s John J. McLaughlin. Somehow or another, Paul Giamatti wasn’t cast as Hitchcock. That role will be filled by Anthony Hopkins and his wife will be played by Helen Mirren. James D’Arcy will play Anthony Perkins. If this goes well, I hope to see Megan Fox in a sequel about the making of The Birds. (Variety)

Review: Thor http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-thor/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-thor/#comments Sun, 01 May 2011 16:05:01 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=209914 Not enough memorable action sequences to make up for the contrived storyline.

The post Review: Thor appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Thor‘ target=’_blank’>Thor-2′ target=’_blank’>Thor was never a comic book I read. I’m not particularly interested in Norse gods or warriors from another planet who come to earth. Thor is Thor movie and it doesn’t do anything to sell me on the mythology.

The film’s only good action sequence is the battle against the Frost Giants on their planet. Thor gets some good hammer whacks in and each of the Warriors Three (Ray Stevenson, Josh Dallas and Tadanobu Asano) and Sif (Jaimie Alexander) get to display various weapons and powers. You might as well do the whole movie on Asgard, but of course then Thor couldn’t joi The Avengers. The rest of the action is just beefy man fights.

The film even struggles to make Earth matter. All Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is doing on Earth is trying to get his hammer back. He goes out drinking with a scientist (Stellan Skarsgard) in a pointless scene, but what does Asgard do for us? Eventually Loki (Tom Hiddleston) unleashes the Destroyer so Thor has to defend us. That’s it? Asgard sends baddies to Earth and Thor fights them?

Natalie Portman Is All Over Thor In New Trailer

I get the arc Thor goes through but it’s still contrived. Oh, the hero learns a lesson. Loki tricks Thor, but he’s no Iago. He just says something that isn’t true. It’s not like he’s incepting Thor. Even though I’ve never read a Thor comic, I knew exactly what would happen when he tried to get his hammer back, and what would happen the second time.

The Asgard parts are like a modern day Clash of the Titans, gods standing around talking about battle but with better production value. They actually get through a lot of plot really quickly in the first act, but that only means they’re making room for more on Earth.

Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) discovers Thor during her physics research. She gets to be a love interest and explain the science of interplanetary travel, via her layman assistant Darcy (Kat Dennings). Coulson (Clark Gregg) is like a stealthy MIB type in this one, so I guess his character changes per movie. SHIELD investigates Thor’s hammer and blah blah blah. The Tony Stark reference is nice though.

They derive some good comedy when earthlings react to Thor-talk. The fish out of water joke gets old when he’s walking through traffic intersections. When Sif and the Warriors show up again they just get downright goofy. And I’m sorry, armor on earth looks silly.

At least Kenneth Branagh knows how to shoot destruction. The film looks good, and steady with no shaky cam. Even when he tilts the camera for establishing shots, the framing is still right. The 3D makes the backgrounds look like flat backdrops even though they’re probably actual graphic designs, but the perspective work is good. They make the frost giants tower over Odin (Anthony Hopkins).

The visual effects look like live-action people shooting through space, ice beasts and weather swirls. So, just like every other CGI movie. Honestly, why spend years on complex computer shots just so we can see the same effect? There is a tag after the credits though so stick around for your Easter egg.

Kenneth Branagh‘s Thor shows the Marvel hero (played by Chris Hemsworth) getting his butt kicked easily after landing on Earth and making demands. I lol’d. Maybe it undercuts the seriousness of his godhood, but I’m not fond of this plague of boring, hyper serious posters for the film anyway. Nice to know even the gods have a sense of humor. Of course, as I’m sure the filmmakers are aware, a little of this goes a long way. I’m not excited to see Thor crush his foot with his hammer and hop around squealing “ouch,” like something out of a Tim Allen movie.

Thor descends into theaters April 27th, along with Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins.

The people over at Thor‘ target=’_blank’>Thor-2′ target=’_blank’>Thor Posters Inc have been catching some flack for perceived laziness, since many of the posters have that “90s superhero movie” look and feel to them. Then, when they try to do something different, they catch holy hell from poster aficionados too! So it looks like this time, with these 6 character posters that have been released on several different websites recently, they decided to split the difference. They look like the infamous “red” posters, but with a more traditional color scheme. It remains to be seen if everyone on the internet will be satisfied with these.

The posters feature six characters from the movie, and they look like they should be holding cards with their heights and weights. There’s Chris Hemsworth at Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster and Jaimie Alexander as Sif. Now you know a little bit more about Norse mythology than you did before. Thanks, Marvel! (via Firstshowing.net)

Excited to see Marvel movie are here, and while the quality on these scans are not super great, we do get some nice new shots of Beardy McEyepatch, Beardy McGobblet and Mystique’s blue boyfriend. Or maybe they’re cousins. We’ll find out when Thor‘s hammer hits theaters May 6th.

Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins. Looking forward to seeing it, although hopefully the print looks a little sharper than these images do. Especially if I’m paying $37.75 per ticket for IMAX. (SuperHeroHype for more pics.)

It’s time for a Bond 23 rumor! This is a pretty tantalizing one, too – it’s being reported that none other than Mr. whatever-his-name-was in The Silence of the Lambs, Anthony Hopkins, is being discussed as the villain for the next James Bond adventure. Here’s a quote from an anonymous source, who later plunged to his death while on fire:

“The only stumbling block seems to be the number of films he is signing up for. There is a chance the character they want him to play could become a regular feature, like Blofeld back in the day.”

Now, stop me if this sounds crazy, but since Casino Royale was a “reboot” of the Bond series, couldn’t it be possible that rather than playing a character “like” Blofeld, he’s actually playing Blofeld? That could be a pretty cool idea, and casting a star like Hopkins would definitely be a change of pace for the character. We’ll see if Hopkins actually gets to stroke the cat or if this is just hot air. (via Moviefone)

Jude Law is putting his talent for sleeping with castmates up on the big screen. He has joined the gang bang that is Fernando Meirelles’s relationship drama 360. A retelling of the classic play, Reigen, the story shows a variety of characters just before or just after a secretive boot-knocking. After each scene, one of the partners carries over into the next scene and so on until the hook-ups come round full circle.

The rest of the cast is made up of names known and unknown. That’s because the film travels around the world, tackling scenes in English, German, French, Austrian, Russian, Moroccan, Algerian and Brazilian. The actors previously attached are Anthony Hopkins, Rachel Wiesz, Ben Foster, Jarnel Debouze, Juliano Cazarre, Maria flor, and Karl Markovic.

That means that Jude Law‘s saliva will indirectly end up in Anthony Hopkins‘ mouth which, let’s face it, has probably already happened by now anyway. (via The Playlist)

No one had very high expectations for the Anthony Hopkins horror movie The Rite. Well, look who’s laughing now! It turns out that The Rite has broken the record for highest opening gross OF ALL TIME* (*for Anthony Hopkins in a top-billed, non-Hannibal Lecter role) with a $15 million opening weekend. Suck it, haters!

2nd place was last week’s “can sex friends be best friends?” romantic comedy No Strings Attached, which got $13.6 million from audiences but didn’t ask for a big commitment or anything. The third place slot being filled by Jason Statham replacing busted carburetors  in The Mechanic, with$11.5 million.

More deliriously exciting box office numbers can be found at Box Office Mojo.

The Worst of the Best: Anthony Hopkins http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-worst-of-the-best-anthony-hopkins/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-worst-of-the-best-anthony-hopkins/#comments Mon, 24 Jan 2011 21:59:36 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=21770 When a career spans more than four decades, even the best and the brightest are bound to make some awful films.

The post The Worst of the Best: Anthony Hopkins appeared first on Screen Junkies.

There’s no denying that Anthony Hopkins is talented. In fact, he’s arguably one of our greatest living actors. But when a career spans more than four decades, even the best and the brightest are bound to make some awful films. Will Hopkins latest film, The Rite, fall into that category? While we’ll have to wait and see, the January release date certainly doesn’t bode well. But if the film does prove to be a dud, it will be in good company. Actually, it will be in Bad Company. Here’s a look at nine of Anthony Hopkins‘ worst films.

RT = Rotten Tomatoes Fresh Rating

Freejack (1992) – RT = 17%

In Freejack, Hopkins plays a wealthy industrialist from the future. Of course, the film was made in 1992, and the future in question (the year 2009) is now the past, which is weird.

At any rate, in 2009, the rich pay to kidnap people from the past in order to steal their healthy bodies. If someone from the past escapes before they are harvested, they are known as a Freejack, and Mick Jagger is sent to hunt them down.

I wonder why this film bombed.

Meet Joe Black (1998) – RT = 50%

Spoiler alert: Meet Joe Black sucks. Not only that, but the original version is three hours long, which doesn’t help matters at all.

The plot involves a rich old man (Hopkins) giving the grim reaper (Joe Black) a tour of earth in exchange for a temporary reprieve from death, and the two go on a series of adventures involving corporate mergers and union disputes. How exciting.

The Wolfman (2010) – RT = 33%

While most of the films on this list are from the 1990′s, last years remake of The Wolfman proved that you’re never to old to make a really bad movie.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) – RT = 53%

In all fairness, Anthony Hopkins is only the narrator, so it’s hardly his fault that the film was awful. But even so, anyone who was associated with tarnishing this beloved children’s classic deserves to be publicly shamed.

Instinct (1999) – RT = 27%

Pairing Anthony Hopkins with Cuba Gooding Jr. is like covering a steak with ketchup. But that didn’t stop the producers of Instinct.

The plot involves a missing anthropologist (Hopkins) who resurfaces in Africa and kills a group of park rangers. As it turns out, Hopkins’ character has been living with gorillas during his absence, and only killed the rangers after they attacked his new ape friends. It’s like Gorillas in the Mist, but infinitely more stupid.

The Road to Wellville (1994) – RT = 44%

The Road to Wellville is fictionalized account of the life of John Harvey Kellogg, a nineteenth-century health nut with a penchant for enemas and nutritional supplements. I’m not a fan of the film, but based on what I just described, wouldn’t you have loved to have been in on the pitch meeting?

Kellogg went on to create Corn Flakes, and the film is about as exciting as that sounds. Also, it’s a comedy, so if you find breakfast cereal funny, you should definitely check it out.

Hannibal (2000) – RT = 39%

How do you follow Silence of the Lambs, the critically acclaimed psychological thriller that swept all-five of the major Academy Awards? You don’t. Actress Jodi Foster and director Jonathan Demme understood this, but apparently Anthony Hopkins didn’t get the memo. I’m assuming the producers gave Hopkins a dump truck full of money, because that’s the only way his involvement makes sense.

On its own, it’s not the worst film in the world. But given the fact that it’s the sequel to such an impressive film, it was probably doomed from the start.

Slipstream (2007) – RT = 23%

To be fair, Slipstream, a film written, directed by and starring Anthony Hopkins, has its defenders. Among them, film critic Roger Ebert, who called the film the most experimental of the year. But when the words “vanity project” keep popping up in other reviews, it’s definitely a bad sign.

Bad Company (2002) – RT = 10%

I love Chris Rock, but if he’s in a film, chances are it will suck. That’s science talking. Throw director Joel Schumacher and producer Jerry Bruckheimer into the mix, and you’ve got yourself a bona fide crap fest. You could have brought in the reanimated corpse of Laurence Olivier, and it still wouldn’t have saved Bad Company.

In the film, Hopkins plays a CIA agent who is put in charge of training a street hustler (Chris Rock) for a sensitive mission. What does the CIA need with a street hustler? As it happens, the hustler is the long-lost twin brother of a CIA agent (also played by Rock) who was killed in action, and the agency needs him as a stand in. Sound stupid? It is. And to make matters worse, the terrorism-heavy plot didn’t sit well with studio executives in the wake of the September 11th attacks, and the film was delayed for several months.

Alfred Hitchcock was one of the greatest movie directors of all-time, but his life wasn’t nearly as exciting as getting attacked in the shower by a crazy cross-dressing murderer. Maybe that’s why the writer/director developing the Hitchcock biopic, Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil), is in talks with everyone’s favorite lamb silencer Anthony Hopkins to spice things up a bit.

I can see it now. “Hello Alma,” ultra super creepy Hitchcock (played by Hopkins) says to his wife and editor Alma Reville in a disturbing whisper. “I think you need to cut a little bit more off that scene,” he says, brandishing a large knife. “Which part? The tail end or the head,” Alma asks, her attention focused on the editing deck. “How about… the neck.” He slices her throat, just like what happened in real life. Yes, that really happened, don’t consult Wikipedia or his many biographies.

Actually, Hopkins has been rumored to play the North By Northwest director for years, when Ryan Murphy was attached to the project. Murphy’s version didn’t come together, and he later went on to create something far scarier than anything Hitchcock ever made: “Glee.” (/Film)

Ben Foster, last seen blowing up all manner of shit in this month’s The Mechanic, has been added to the cast of Fernando Meirelles’ slightly more highbrow 360, a drama starring Anthony Hopkins and Rachel Weisz. The film, written by Peter Morgan, is inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s play Reigen, and will re team Meirelles’ with Weisz for the first time since the two made 2005′s The Constant Gardner.

Foster has proven himself to be a versatile talent as of late, taking on popcorn films like the third X-Men film as well as thoughtful indies like Oren Moverman’s The Messanger. It’s not every day that an actor goes from shooting everyone in the face with Jason Statham to making dramas with Oscar winning pedigree. That hasn’t happened since Amy Smart went straight from Crank 2: High Voltage to her starring role in Precious. (Deadline)

Old White Man Casting News: Hopkins Doing ’360′, Plummer Getting ‘Dragon Tattoo’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/old-white-man-casting-news-hopkins-doing-360-plummer-getting-dragon-tattoo/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/old-white-man-casting-news-hopkins-doing-360-plummer-getting-dragon-tattoo/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Today in Old White Man Casting News, Anthony Hopkins has joined Rachel Weisz in Fernando Meirelles' 360, and Christopher Plummer has signed on for David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Good for these two AARP card carrying members. They know the true secret to not dying: keep working! Anthony Hopkins is the first of many that will be cast in the Peter Morgan-scripted 360, as the movie revolves around ten characters. It “examines sexual morals within and between social classes, using various pairs of characters who have sexual encounters in and outside of their social classes.” No word yet who Hopkins will be banging, but I've been told one of the characters is named The Whore. So maybe Lindsay Lohan. In Dragon Tattoo, Christopher Plummer will play the wealthy industrialist who hires Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara to solve a 40-year-old murder. In the process, they find all kinds of deep, dark, effed up secrets in his family. Plummer seems like the perfect person for the role. His character has to get out a lot of exposition, and he should do just fine keeping the viewer intrigued. When Plummer gets intense it's as if he could hit you with a switch at any moment. (/Film, THR)

If a superhero is going to have a mentor, it should be someone major like Brando or The Dude. Sir Anthony Hopkins is another good one. Playing Odin in the big movie version of Thor, Sir Anthony enjoyed messing with beefy Chris Hemsworth.

“I’m glad I’m not young anymore because you see their insecurities and I always joke along with them,” Hopkins said while he was promoting the Woody Allen comedy You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. “I say things like, ‘Is that the way you’re going to play it?’ Chris and I got to know each other but he was looking nervous and I said, ‘Oh, is that the way you’re going to play it?’ He said, ‘Yeah, is it okay?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s your career.’’

More after the jump…

With anyone else, that would sound mean. But Sir Anthony says it with that sly Hannibal Lecter voice. “They know that I’m joking but you have to have that relaxation to work with actors. If people are nervous around you it’s pointless. So I got that edge and say things.”

One can imagine Sir Anthony as a powerful Odin, and he had to be to wear that costume. “Well, it was hard work. It was carrying 15 pounds of armor on my back or more. 25 pounds I think, but Branagh’s a great director. I call him the general. He’s so self assured and so present and he knows exactly what he wants. I’d never worked with him before and I wouldn’t say I know him well but it was such a pleasant revelation working with him. I don’t know what it is about him. He’s very self-assured and a great actor. He brings all his experience to the set. I think he’s terrific.”

Thor is coming May 6, 2011.

In the photo, we see Thor kneeling before Odin as Loki, Frigga, Fandal the Dashing, and Hogun the Grim look on. I don't want to be blasphemous just in case there is a God and he's played by Anthony Hopkins, but this is the Hall Of Asgard? It looks more like the set for a porno awards show. I haven't heard of any plans to have Ron Jeremy accept a Lifetime Achievement Award in the film, but maybe Kenneth Branagh will include that after the credits or as a DVD Easter Egg.

The next, you're threatening to retire because the movie where you pretended to be a feral, chimp man didn't connect with audiences. Then all of a sudden, you're in some weird, muscley armor walking through a Roman sewer with a piece of foil double-sticked to your eye. Thus, is the life of the thespian.The LA Times debuted this photo along with the news that both Thor and Captain America will undergo a 3D post conversion process before hitting theaters. Marvel and the filmmakers are well aware of the challenges this decision creates, and that is why they will spend "an unprecedented amount of time" on the conversion. What do you expect them to do? They've already shot too much footage of hammers and shields being thrown at the camera to turn back now.

Anthony Hopkins Terrorizes the Homeless http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/anthony-hopkins-terrorizes-the-homeless/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/anthony-hopkins-terrorizes-the-homeless/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 These days it seems like every celebrity in Hollywood is trying make a name for themselves via charity. If they're not sending money to Haiti, they're adopting African AIDS babies. Steven Seagal went as far as to bring two Russian girls to the US, and even paid for their room and board once they got here. All these good deeds are enough to make you sick. That's why it's nice to see an actor like Anthony Hopkins who is so down to earth. Despite all the fame and fortune, the Oscar winner still enjoys terrorizing the homeless, just like us regular folk. Back in 2002, when Hopkins was trying to fight his alcoholism, he decided to go and volunteer at a Midnight Mission in Los Angeles. After all, nothing takes your mind off the sauce like hanging out on skid row with a bunch of winos. According to the mission's director, Clancy Imislund, Hopkins really enjoyed scaring the bejesus out of the homeless. It's funny. We have film nights here and one time we showed Silence of the Lambs. So as a surprise I asked Tony to come down and tap a few people on the shoulder at the end and say 'Hello' in that voice he does. You should have seen their faces. They were like, 'Arrggh!' He got a real kick out of that. I bet this little prank was especially popular with some of the schizophrenics in attendance. Normally when they talk to characters from a movie, no one else can see them. But thanks to Hopkins and his rapier wit, now they know that they aren't crazy afterall, and neither are their plans to start mutilating house pets. Kudos to you, Sir Anthony! (CinemaBlend)

Not since Jumanji have we had to deal with hairy CG animal poop clumps. The only convincing part of the trailer was Hugo Weaving, and he pretty much fapped around all day on set (see photo):
