‘A Bigger Splash’ Trailer: Everyone’s Obscene in This Tilda Swinton Thriller

by Matt Singer October 1, 2015 @ 11:03 AM
If you saw 2009’s I Am Love, the family drama from director Luca Guadagnino, you’re going to want to see A Bigger Splash, Guadagnino’s new movie with his I Am Love star, the chameleonic Tilda Swinton. This time Swinton plays a rock star on vacation with her partner (Rust and Bone’s Matthias Schoenaerts), when the arrival of an ex played by Ralph Fiennes (and his daughter, played by Fifty Shades of Grey’s Dakota Johnson) throws their whole trip into chaos.

Ranking the 2015 Oscar Snubs From “Totally Forgivable” to “WTF?"

Yep, it’s that time of the year again. The 2015 Oscar nominations are here and it’s time for everyone to get outraged and cynical over which movies get the opportunity to take home statuettes of naked golden dudes. Sure, we always tell ourselves that the Academy Awards don’t really matter and that a film’s legacy will live or die for reasons beyond trophies, but we always end up getting angry about these things anyway. However, this year’s biggest snubs seems more egregious than usual and require slightly more yelling and stamping of feet.

NBC’s darkly delicious ‘Hannibal’ lost one of its more headline-grabbing stars for season 3 when Joe Anderson replaced ‘Boardwalk Empire’’s Michael Pitt as literary villain Mason Verger, but Bryan Fuller’s “remix” series has added another dish in his wake. Fresh off ‘The Battle of the Five Armies,’ ‘The Hobbit’ star Richard Armitage will play ‘Hannibal’'s incarnation of ‘Red Dragon’ villain Francis Dolarhyde.

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Review

Wes Anderson has finally done it. He's gone and created his own country.
Zubrowka, the fictional town at the heart of 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' is positioned on the farthest Eastern edge of Europe's great empire. It is a melange of stylistic flourishes and decorative signifiers from a make believe 20th Century - a memory of a memory, a fastidious, whimsical take on real horrors - a storybook samizdat that entices with madcap adventure then goes in for the kill with existential dread. It is an incredible place to visit.

Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest' is trying its best to assemble an exciting ensemble cast. Already on board are Jude Law, Owen Wilson and Bill Murray, while the names of Johnny Depp and Angela Lansbury have been associated with it as well. Depp, however, was revealed not to actually be confirmed for the flick, and, sadly, it looks like Lansbury will have to head for the exit.
But fear not -- it looks lik "He Who Must Not Be Name," Ralph Fiennes, is coming in to save the day! Nothing says "whimsical comedy" like bringing back Voldemort, right?

Liam Neeson + Ralph Fiennes -- Dead Ringers?

by Nick Romano October 4, 2012 @ 9:00 AM
20th Century Fox
In preparation for 'Taken 2,' hitting theaters tomorrow, we decided to re-watch a couple of Liam Neeson's masterpieces -- 'Clash of the Titans' and 'Wrath of the Titans.' (Okay, so they're not exactly American treasures.) The first time around, we were incredibly impressed with Neeson's stamina and willingness to take on two roles, (Zeus and Hades) but then the second time through took all that reverence away when we realized the actor and his co-star Ralph Fiennes were not the same person.
