Liam Neeson is taking a break between daughter rescues to dress up like a tree monster. He’s been cast with Felicity Jones in A Monster Calls. Based on the young-adult novel of the same name, the story focuses on the friendship between a boy and the monster that transforms from a yew tree at night to haunt his nightmares. Neeson will play the monster who turns out to be pretty cool. Like Little Monsters but with a leading man who has punched a wolf to death. (Screen Daily)

Paul Giamatti To Suit Up As The Rhino In ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/paul-giamatti-to-suit-up-as-the-rhino-in-amazing-spider-man-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/paul-giamatti-to-suit-up-as-the-rhino-in-amazing-spider-man-2/#comments Tue, 29 Jan 2013 14:03:30 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=253156 It was actually his idea.

Are we ready for a horn stuffed into a wine glass? When Jamie Foxx revealed that his Electro costume was designed to look sleek and stylish, there were concerns that we wouldn’t get to see a critically-acclaimed actor look ridiculous in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Those concerns were premature. THR reports that after checking with the X-Men franchise and confirming they won’t need him to play Toad at any point, Sony has approached Paul Giamatti to play The Rhino.

This is a dream come true for Giamatti, who in 2011 told ShowbizSpy:

“I thought Rhino was the greatest thing when I was a little kid. 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.”

Like Crazy’s Felicity Jones is also in talks to join the film, which includes stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, as well as the aforementioned Foxx and fellow newcomers Shailene Woodley and Dane DeHaan, who are playing Mary Jane and Harry Osborne. Jones’ role is unspecified as of now but let’s hope she’s playing Black Cat. Because the combination of these images will more than make up for the trauma of seeing Giamatti in a skintight outfit.

British actress Felicity Jones hasn’t quite become a household name yet, but she seems to be getting there. Having appeared alongside Helen Mirren in The Tempest and teamed up with Anton Yelchin in Like Crazy, she’s definitely gaining some traction. Later this year, Jones will appear in Cheerful Weather for the Wedding and an untitled project helmed by Like Crazy director Drake Doremus.

‘Hysteria’ Trailer: See What All The Buzz Is About http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/hysteria-trailer-see-what-all-the-buzz-is-about/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/hysteria-trailer-see-what-all-the-buzz-is-about/#comments Tue, 16 Aug 2011 19:28:05 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=224663 Where do you get off, Maggie Gyllenhaal?

Hysteria stars Hugh Dancy, Rupert Everett, and Jonathan Pryce as three doctors tasked with duty of getting Maggie Gyllenhaal off. They really could have saved some time had they just asked James Spader.

Set in Victorian-era London, these doctors set out to develop a remedy for hysteria — a condition that causes women to go all cuckoo-bananas. In the process, they accidentally invent the vibrator. For the most part it seems like a comedy for old people who read The New York Times, but you never know. It seems original, probably features an orgasming Felicity Jones, and has a solid cast. Though this trailer isn’t particularly funny, we’ll hold judgment. With movies like this, it all depends on the climax.

London is currently burning but that burning is nothing compared to the fire in the hearts of these separated young lovers. It’s the full-length trailer for Drake Doremus’s Like Crazy, and this time the actors actually annunciate their dialogue. Now it all makes sense. Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones play a young couple split apart by the Atlantic Ocean when her visa expires. When I watched the mumbly teaser, I had thought it was a Die Hard sequel. I find it important that this new trailer clarified.

The Sundance hit Like Crazy is gearing up for a limited release on October 28th. Just in time to get those Anton Yelchin masks out for Halloween. Though there’s been a lot of write-up about the indie, this is our first glimpse of a trailer.

In the film Yelchin plays an American student who talks so goddamned low that you can’t understand a word of this trailer. He falls in love with his British classmate played by Felicity Jones as she’s the only one who can make out what he’s trying to say. Their relationship suffers when she violates her visa and must return to England. Looks pretty good if you’re into crying and sun-flare. Still though, speak up Yelchin! Sound guys can only do so much.

Those cruel cinema poachers at Paramount have had two titles languishing in captivity for months now: Like Crazy, a coming-of-age drama starring Anton Yelchin, Felicity Jones and Jennifer Lawrence, and The Devil Inside, a micro-budget thriller starring Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quarterman, Evan Helmuth and Suzan Crowley. Now, they’re finally being released into the wild, as God intended. Like Crazy is coming out in limited release on October 28th of this year, while Th Devil Inside is shaky-caming its way into theaters on Februar 24, 2012 (assuming the world hasn’t ended by then).

So, set your Advent calendars appropriately, and remember to get your tickets ahead of time in case they sell out. And make sure you put in for personal time at your job if you need to. This is why they announce the release dates early, so you can start making arrangements! (Deadline)

Sundance Review: Like Crazy http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/sundance-review-like-crazy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/sundance-review-like-crazy/#comments Sun, 23 Jan 2011 17:05:03 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=21638 This relationship study is raw, honest and brutal, yet beautiful.

Like Crazy deserves all the buzz it’s getting at Sundance. This relationship study is raw, honest and brutal, yet beautiful.

Anna (Felicity Jones) and Jacob (Anton Yelchin) meet their senior year in college. I wish a cute, ambitious British poet would leave a four page note on my car. Anna proves to be the most wonderful woman we’ve seen in movies, so she’s worth the trouble that comes later. Jacob’s a solid guy himself.

The falling in love part of the movie is really sweet. They spend a lot of time just sitting together. They don’t have to babble, rather just be in each other’s presence. They write notes to each other that we don’t get to read. Their relationship is passionate and natural.

Anna’s visa ends at graduation. She’s so in love, she stays the summer, but the next time she visits her family, she’s not allowed back in America. That is a way more badass premise than Going the Distance. Drew Barrymore and Justin Long lived in the same country. Not only do Anna and Jacob cross an ocean, but the break the law too!

Their scenes apart feel longing. I miss Anna when she’s away. Visits reveal that they’re living separate lives. Missing calls because of the time difference, seeing other happy couples on the tube, that’s how long distance really feels.

Jacob and Anna intelligently discuss the difficult problems. Jacob has no role in her group of friends. Did they sleep with other people while they were apart? It seems like the answer is no but it’s still a bad talk. When Anna asks Jacob if he wants to see other people, he gives the right answer but the question is just awful.

When it seems impossible, Jacob does see a new girl. Samantha (Jennifer Lawrence) is amazing, but she’s no Anna and that’s sad for poor Sam. Everyone in this movie is a good person and that creates more drama than stories of opposites. Doing the right thing for yourselves and each other is harder than bickering. There’s one argument but the unspoken conflicts hurt more.

Jacob and Anna make choices about marriage, about their whole lives and there’s still red tape that can’t be solved. How do you have fun and love each other when it’s so frustrating. People get hurt around Jacob and Anna because they’re not really available.

The only bad thing I can say about Like Crazy is I really wish it wasn’t shot handheld. The story and performances overpower the distracting shakes, but this movie really could have benefited from deliberate camerawork.

The movie’s open ending may make people think it’s a downer. I personally feel I know exactly what happens for Jacob and Anna and I’m happy for them. That’s not a spoiler because they don’t really say. So, the lesson is: don’t squat in America for love. Going through the proper channels is better in the long run.

Her role in The Tempest won’t be Felicity Jones’ first experience with William Shakespeare. She once performed in the prolific playwright’s “Comedy of Errors” while studying at Oxford University, and she’s British. British people are all about Shakespeare. He’s like their version of Mark Twain, if Mark Twain was a huge pussy. Tom Sawyer for life, baby! Go America.

A word from Felicity: “University was a good testing ground to see whether I still wanted to act. Now I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
