Rosamund Pike is Marie Curie in first trailer for Radioactive

Ahead of its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, StudioCanal has debuted the first poster and trailer for the biographical drama Radioactive.

Teaser Trailer for 'Radioactive' Starring Rosamund Pike as Marie Curie

"Science is changing. And the very people who are running science are the people who believe the world is flat." Studiocanal UK and Working Title have revealed the first teaser trailer for the film Radioactive, a historic biopic about the life and times of iconic scientist Marie Curie. Described as a: "Pioneer.

Rosamund Pike stars as Marie, with Sam Riley, Anya Taylor-Joy, Aneurin Barnard, Simon Russell Beale, Jonathan Aris, Corey Johnson, Tim Woodward, and Harriet Turnbull. Looks

The Personal History of David Copperfield Review – Tiff 2019

  • HeyUGuys
Armando Iannucci and Simon Blackwell, who co-wrote and created The Thick of It before taking their now-famous brand of sweary political satire across the pond to further acclaim with Veep, certainly made a brave choice when they chose Charles Dickens’ autobiographical novel as the source of their next project. A New Yorker article on the politics of Brexit, say, might work as a Death of Stalin-type disaster-fest; or we could expect a Succession-type dramady centred on just about any feature of our politics at the moment.

Brave, then, that was, and this is. A buoyant tone and a frequently genteel sensibility – with some genuine directorial flair thrown in from a previously uninventive technical filmmaker – make The Personal History of David Copperfield a big step sideways in the careers of those who made it. The same applies to the members of a remarkable ensemble, which includes Hugh Laurie, Tilda Swinton, Peter Capaldi

London Stage Hit ‘The Lehman Trilogy’ Headed To Broadway With Director Sam Mendes & Original Cast
Director Sam Mendes’ hit London staging of The Lehman Trilogy is heading to Broadway, with previews beginning Saturday, March 7, 2020 at the Nederlander Theatre. Opening night is Thursday, March 26, 2020.

The widely expected engagement of the acclaimed production was announced today by producers The National Theatre, Neal Street Productions, and Scott Rudin/Barry Diller/David Geffen.

Written by Italian playwright Stefano Massini and adapted into English by Ben Power, The Lehman Trilogy will play a strictly limited 16-week engagement featuring original cast of Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles. The sold-out West End production scored five Olivier Award nominations.

The epic play weaves together nearly two centuries of family history, charting “the humble beginnings, outrageous successes, and devastating failure of the financial institution that would ultimately bring the global economy to its knees.”

Today’s announcement describes the play as “the quintessential story of western capitalism, rendered through the lens of a single immigrant family.

There are no small parts, '18 Edition

by Nathaniel R

Our annual cinematic jamboree, the Film Bitch Awards, continue with the categories of best actors and actresses in limited roles. This category is reserved for the kind of performances given in one or two scenes where'd you'd be happy to wander outside the camera's purview just to spend more time with them. Or, more accurately, since the characters aren't always pleasant, performances so strong that you wish you could follow them into another scene or five to watch the actor dig in yet deeper.

We're talking about performances like Brian Tyree Henry's in If Beale Street Could Talk, who crystallizes the film's conceits about the systematic oppression of black men as his innocent ex-con monologues through the film's most moving sequence. His eyes drop us into the abyss of his prison memories where his words won't take us. We're talking about performances like Bradley Whitford's glib lawyer,

‘The Death of Stalin': Armando Iannucci Explores the Nature of Power Through Black Comedy

‘The Death of Stalin': Armando Iannucci Explores the Nature of Power Through Black Comedy
A version of this story about Armando Iannucci and “The Death of Stalin” first appeared in the Actors/Directors/Screenwriters issue of TheWrap’s Oscar magazine.

Long before Donald Trump became president, Italian-born “Veep” creator Armando Iannucci kept an eye on the news from Italy under the leadership of far-right Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, and wanted to do a film about authoritarianism. “These are leaders who claim they are for democracy and rise to power through democracy, but use their power to shut down democracy,” Iannucci said in an interview with TheWrap.

“I saw something troubling rising in politics even before Trump, and I wanted to make a film reminding people that just because you have democracy now doesn’t mean you can’t lose it.”

TV Review: ‘Vanity Fair’

TV Review: ‘Vanity Fair’
There’s something comforting about the predictability of a period piece novel adaptation in the Masterpiece Theater tradition. Knowing the story, or even just the rhythms of the genre, there are rarely many surprises. The women will toss off witticisms and cry careful, pretty tears; the men will steel their jaws and declare their love, ideally after reluctantly falling for a woman they hadn’t considered before. There will be romance, heartbreak, births, deaths. Even when it’s not a great adaptation, it’s at least familiar, and that can go a long way.

Vanity Fair” is counting on just such leniency. It’s neither terrible nor amazing, but at the very least, it’s efficient.

In seven episodes spanning years of social climbing, devastating warfare, and undulating class dynamics, this latest version of William Thackeray’s “Vanity Fair” enlists a game cast to follow Becky Sharp (Olivia Cooke), an

Christopher Willis (‘The Death of Stalin’ composer) on writing a ‘very pompous Soviet composition’ to offset the comedy [Exclusive Video Interview]
“Veep” “only afforded us these tiny little slices of music,” so composer Christopher Willis had “a great feeling of release” when re-teaming with Armando Iannucci on “The Death of Stalin.” “We realized that we were going to be needing these great slabs of music to take us through some complicated scenes,” he explains. “So it was very much a feeling of opening up,” of finally being able to “try some stuff out.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Willis above.

“Mary Queen of Scots” can’t live up to its royal lineage

It’s never fair for one film to be compared to another. They weren’t made to be in direct competition with each other. Still, sometimes it’s just apt. The worst thing that could have happened to Mary Queen of Scots was how fresh and unique The Favourite ended up being. This period piece just can’t match up, coming hot on the heels of that one. Regardless of the comparison, it falls short of its intended goals, despite a powerhouse one two punch of Margot Robbie and especially Saorise Ronan. Considering the potential here, it’s certainly a disappointment. Ronan does her best, but she can’t save the day. The film is a biographical drama, centering on Mary Stuart (Ronan) and her relationship with cousin Elizabeth I (Robbie), the Queen of England. Mainly a biopic of Mary, it follows her as she becomes the Queen of France

Carey Mulligan, Andy Serkis, Daniel Kaluuya and Martin Freeman set “radical retelling” of A Christmas Carol

Screen Daily is reporting that Carey Mulligan (Wildlife) and Black Panther stars Andy Serkis, Daniel Kaluuya and Martin Freeman have signed on to the voice cast of an animated “radical retelling” of the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol.

BAFTA-nominated siblings Jacqui and David Morris are directing the feature from a script by David Morris, with the film opening “on a Victorian family preparing a toy theatre for their annual performance of A Christmas Carol, which the grandmother narrates, and enters the imagination of one of the children in the audience as the cardboard stage and the story transform into a dark fantasy realm, adding lyricism and modern dance to the hallowed tale of redemption.”
