Wes Anderson got this one in just under the wire so hipsters can fashion their Lobby Boy costume for Halloween. Because how embarrassing would it be to dress like Where The Wild Things Are kid again?

This time around, Ralph Fiennes stars as the selfish man-child whose outsized ego threatens to bring down everyone around him. All in all, The Grand Budapest Hotel looks like a return to form after the languid pace and forgettableness of Moonrise Kingdom. The ensemble comedy also stars Anderson favorites and newbies like Saoirse Ronan, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Jude Law, Owen Wilson, Lea Seydoux, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, F. Murray Abraham, Tom Wilkinson, Harvey Keitel, Tony Revolori and the color pink.

Oh man. Poor Perseus. Not only does he have a whole bunch of new monsters to slay, but now he also has to get ready to face oblivion. Oblivion is way stronger than the Kraken, as the new trailer for Wrath of the Titans illustrates.

After the first film underwhelmed like a muthaf***a, Sam Worthington pinky-swore that the sequel would be somewhat better. He said in an accent that waivered between English and Australian, “I think the first one, we kind of let down some people. What we’re setting out to do on this one — the writers and the director and myself — is improve.”

And apparently the way to improve is to add lava. All is forgiven, Sam Worthington. All is forgiven.

The post Ralph Fiennes’ ‘Coriolanus’ Makes Shakespeare Relevant appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Ralph Fiennes has done such a good job acting without a nose that he’s been allowed to direct his very own movie. Coriolanus, based off the play by William Shakespeare (or Anonymous or whoever), tells the story of a general who teams up with his sworn enemy after being betrayed by his people. Fiennes updates the tale here to set the events against the backdrop of modern warfare. However, he holds onto the original Shakespearean (or Anonymousean or whoeverean) dialogue. The results look pretty good and way more hardcore than when Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes did it.

His radiant sneer, his debonaire, calculating eyes, his nose… slits? He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, but who ladies call “Mr. Handsome,” is the focus of a new poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. You can check it out below.

Like the counterpart poster starring The-Boy-Wizard-Whose-Name-You-Can-Say, this one is going for intensity. Those red fire magic embers all around mean business. The bits of moving earth in the background scream, “dirt’s not supposed to move like this, but magic is happening so OMG.” Also, the tag line “IT ALL ENDS” subtly implies that, as a matter of fact, “IT ALL ENDS.”

Working on the Internet has provided me a good share of nasty attention from readers who disagree with my posts. That just comes with the territory. But the last person I’d want to upset is Lord Voldemort. Look at all the destruction this guy commands. And he’s even trained a huge snake to follow him around like a loyal dog. You’ve got to be seriously bad-ass to pull that off.

Sadly, Harry Potter didn’t get the memo and now he’s gotta actually fight this guy. Judging from this new TV spot for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Deux, it’s going to be a hell of a fight. Even dragons are getting in the mix. Smart money’s on Voldemort!!

Attention, muggles. Time to grab yourself a bag of disgusting magical jellybeans and watch the brand new trailer for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2: Revenge of the Hallows. This is the very last Harry Potter movie ever, and it’s the one where everybody dies, especially all the good guy characters you’ve come to love all these years, so you’ve gotta watch. A higher quality version from Apple is due later tonight.

Directed by David Yates, it’s the last time Daniel Radcliffe plays Potter before going off and making less interesting movies. Emma Watson and Rupert Grint are back as Potter’s posse of Hermione Granger and Ron “Bonghead” Weasely, along with Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter.

Judging by the trailer, this could be the darkest, most explodiest of the Potter movies. Oh man, a lot of Harry Potter’s friends have been killed at this point, and Voldemort is not afraid to push that button. On the other hand, Harry Potter isn’t afraid of a little cliff-diving, so I guess good and evil really do balance each other out.

Deathly Hallows Part 2 rides into theaters on a Quidditch-regulation broomstick on July 15, 2011.

With Hollywood having not realized that she starred in the Platinum Dunes remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street, Rooney Mara has become a hot property. So hot in fact that she’s having trouble scheduling her numerous projects. Mara has dropped out of Mike Newell‘s adaptation of the Charles Dickens joint Great Expectations. And though she’s gone, casting is still trucking ahead.

Ralph Fiennes has been approached to play the mysterious escaped convict Magwitch who helps Jeremy Irvine‘s orphan Pip. Shooting is slated to begin this fall in order to be released by 2012 to time with Charles Dickens’ bicentennial. Although, I don’t see what the rush is. The bicentennial fans could easily go out and rent one of the 573,000 adaptations already in existence. (via The Playlist)

Worried about the fate of that brave young wizard Harry Potter? I’m guessing the answer is “yes… very worried.”

Since that’s the case, get ready to get more worried as you watch Harry face off against He Who Has A Weird Face in this behind the scenes video of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Pt. 2. These are the first clips we’ve seen from the second half of the last chapter in a series of films that have been going on for what feels like forever.

It’s all coming to a magical, fiery end this July in 3D. Join Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Ralph Fiennes and all the Hogwarts wizards as they die miserable deaths. However, the worst death of all is reserved for Harry Po– ah, oh, er… I’ve said too much.

Bonus: Below is a new image from the film. Harry Potter loves bridge-standing. (Collider)

Looks like the star of Taken may not be back to reprise his role in Taken 2. Maybe sequel co-writer/producer Luc Besson will kidnap Liam Neeson‘s daughter until he says “yes?” Of course, the joke would be on him, since Neeson only has sons.

Besson has been putting together the sequel to the hit ex-CIA agent vs. the French Underworld drama, and he’s currently talking to Best Last Name Ever Award Winner Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3) about directing it. However, Besson wants to shoot Taken 2 this year, while forgettable Jedi Neeson wants to take the year off for personal reasons. Can you do a sequel without the lead from the original? Besson is willing to try: his list of possible replacements to play Bryan Mills (or a character very, very similar) includes Ralph FiennesMickey Rourke, and Jason Isaacs.

Faced with replacing Neeson with “The Ram,” Besson recently went back to Neeson and the two are currently trying to work out a shooting schedule for late this year, but nothing is confirmed yet. (Deadline)

UPDATE: My hostage plan worked, I assume. Liam Neeson just officially signed on for Taken 2. Neeson will get some time off before dealing with more stuff getting taken – the sequel starts filming late 2011 / early 2012.

He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named might very well get named as part of the new James Bond cast. Ralph “Voldemort” Fiennes could play a “darkly complex” character in the film, which either means he’s playing a villain, or he’s playing a guy you think is good, but in a surprise twist, ends up being a villain. I’d wait and see if the talks pan out, but I don’t know if I have that kind of English Patience. Cue rimshot.

This will be the 23rd James Bond film. It doesn’t have a title, but I’m thinking it’ll be something like: Live Until You Die, Never Die Twice or James Bond Goes To Camp. The source for these rumors about talks between Fiennes, Bond 23‘s producers and director Sam Mendes (American Beauty) are a British tabloid, which is about as reliable as my picks for the new movie’s title. So if you’re picking out which Harry Potter scarf to wear to the Bond 23 midnight premiere – slow your roll, muggle. (Cinema Blend)

Clash of the Titans
PG-13, 118m., 2010
Cast: Sam Worthington, Gemma Arterton, Mads Mikkelson, Jason Fleming with Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson
Directed by Louis Leterrier
Screenplay by Travis Becham, Phillip Hay, and Max Manfredi based upon 1981 screenplay by Beverly Cross

Clash of the Titans is 300 for 12-year-old boys: a fast paced Saturday morning cartoon on Greek mythology. Based upon a 1981 movie of the same name, Clash of the Titans tells of Perseus, the young half god/half human son of the God of the Heavens — Zeus — and his quest to behead the Snake Goddess Medusa in order to save the Greek city of Argos from destruction by his evil uncle, the God of the Underworld — Hades (played by Ralph Fiennes in yet another one of his demonic hissing roles) — and his giant sea monster The Kragen.

Joining Perseus on his journey through the river Styx and into Medusa’s layer are the stoic bad ass Draco (Bond villain Mads Mikkelson), the fiery oracle Lo (Bond girl Gemma Atherton) and the disfigured minion Calibos.

Sadly for those who enjoyed the original ’81 flick with all its Ray Harryhausen stop motion wizardry, the tin owl Bubo does have a cameo but is quickly put back in his cage for this journey.

Worthington as the forsaken demigod proves like he has in the past with Avatar and Terminator Salvation to be a good image for this day and age’s new action hero. On screen he has quick athletic instincts, can say a silly line like “Not on this planet you won’t!” or “Damn the Gods!” with ful conviction, and pull off a good running war cry like his hero and fellow Aussie actor, Mel Gibson.

Where Clash of the Titans falls on its sword is the 3D. The film was shot in standard 2D and at the last minute given the 3rd dimensional gimmick to pull in more money at the box office. The 3D glasses are more than anything a distraction as many of the action scenes are in standard play and only make your eyes strain as scorpions and snakes crawl on to the screen.

Another thing that will strike a blow to Greek Mythology purists in the audience are the wasting of other Olympic Gods, like Zeus’s brother, Poseidon (Danny Huston), who has but one line in the whole movie and makes you wonder if the rest of his performance was left on the cutting room floor or if the filmmakers’ hands were tied behind their backs. Last month’s kids-tailored Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightening Thief had stronger copyrights to the Gods of Olympus than this more mature swords and sandals epic.

While, Clash of the Titans may not appeal to the older more scholarly crowd, it does make its way up the river of Styx at least halfway before sinking into the Saturday morning matinée abyss.

Grade: C+

Up until now, all the materials we've seen from Clash of the Titans have focused mainly on Liam Neeson's permed beard, monster-fighting, and the Monsters of Rock soundtrack. The new international trailer offers a change of pace by taking a breath to set up the plot of the movie. It seems that the mortals have drawn the ire of Hades so naturally it's statue-tumbling time. To make matters worse, the humans rebel against the Gods which provokes Zeus to the point where he's forced to use his shockwave fist-slam (that's how you know when he's pissed). Then, it's all out war and Gemma Arterton shows up to act stalkery. After that, it's mainly what we've seen before: Sam Worthington fighting the Starship Troopers bugs, an Orc, that monster from Pan's Labyrinth, and those angel-monsters that were out-of-place in Max Payne. And, of course, it closes with Liam Neeson releasing his Kraken. Seriously Liam, quit whipping that thing out all the time. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Up until now, all the materials we’ve seen from Clash of the Titans have focused mainly on Liam Neeson’s permed beard, monster-fighting, and the Monsters of Rock soundtrack. The new international trailer offers a change of pace by taking a breath to set up the plot of the movie.

It seems that the mortals have drawn the ire of Hades so naturally it’s statue-tumbling time. To make matters worse, the humans rebel against the Gods which provokes Zeus to the point where he’s forced to use his shockwave fist-slam (that’s how you know when he’s pissed). Then, it’s all out war and Gemma Arterton shows up to act stalkery.

After that, it’s mainly what we’ve seen before: Sam Worthingto fighting the Starship Troopers bugs, an Orc, that monster from Pan’s Labyrinth, and those angel-monsters that were out-of-place in Max Payne. And, of course, it closes with Liam Neeson releasing his Kraken. Seriously Liam, quit whipping that thing out all the time.

Check out the trailer after the jump.

HIGH TENSION! NEW CLIPS & IMAGES FROM ‘THE HURT LOCKER’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/high-tension-new-clips-images-from-the-hurt-locker/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/high-tension-new-clips-images-from-the-hurt-locker/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Today, Summit released two new clips and six new stills from the upcoming Kathryn Bigelow-directed war movie, The Hurt Locker, opening June 26th.  The first clip, entitled "Die Comfortably," features loose-cannon Staff Sgt. William James (the badass Jeremy Renner) resigning himself to the fact that if the bomb he's diffusing goes off, his armor isn't doing squat to save his life.  The other clip, which you can watch after the jump, is called "Cell Phone, Two O'clock," and gives a tiny clip of the film's tension quotient, as St. Matt Thompson (Guy Pearce) - bedecked in full blast suit and all - is compromised by an insurgent with a cell phone-cum-detonator.  And the guy's got Thompson's number... on speed dial...  Check out the clip after the jump.                      We'll have a review for anxiety-inducing The Hurt Locker coming soon, but suffice it to say my sphincter was clenched the entire movie so as to avoid dropping a deuce in the pristine Wilshire Screening Room.  And I want to be invited back there.
