Top 150 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2020: #31. Rebecca – Ben Wheatley

Rebecca

A decade into feature filmmaking and Ben Wheatley has taken it upon himself to remake Alfred Hitchcock’s 1940 classic Rebecca, which won the Best Picture Oscar and was adapted from the seminal novel by Daphne du Maurier. The Us/UK production is a Netflix property, with a script from Jane Goldman (a Kingsman and X-Men scribe), with writing credits attributed to duo Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel. Produced by Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan, Wheatley has assembled a curious cast with Armie Hammer (who starred in Wheatley’s 2016 title Free Fire) taking over as Maxim de Winter and Lily James (Cinderella; Mamma Mia!

‘Seberg’ screenwriters Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse on Kristen Stewart ‘channeling Jean’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

‘Seberg’ screenwriters Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse on Kristen Stewart ‘channeling Jean’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
At one point in “Seberg,” the new film about actress/activist Jean Seberg, a journalist asks the young star why she thinks so many people became obsessed with her after seeing “Breathless.” For the film’s screenwriters, Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse, it stemmed from that classic French New Wave film but it became an obsession upon learning of Seberg’s involvement with the Black Panther Party and her subsequent investigation by the FBI. As Waterhouse observes in an exclusive new interview with Gold Derby, Seberg was “so quintessentially American and yet she fits into that cool Parisian world as well. She’s just got this energy which is very, very difficult to define.” Watch the video interview with Shrapnel and Waterhouse above.

‘The Aftermath’ Trailer: Keira Knightley Gets Cozy With Alexander Skarsgård in Steamy WWII Drama

Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for “The Aftermath,” a steamy post-wwii drama starring Keira Knightley in a love triangle with Alexander Skarsgård and Jason Clarke. Based on the novel by Welsh writer Rhidian Brook (“Mr. Harvey Lights a Candle”), “The Aftermath” is directed by James Kent (“Testament of Youth”), from a screenplay by Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse, the writing team behind “Race” (2016) and “Frankie & Alice” (2010).

Per the official synopsis: “Set in postwar Germany in 1946, Rachael Morgan (Knightley) arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband Lewis (Clarke), a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower (Skarsgård) and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere,

Halle Berry To Star In Brad Anderson's Call Center Thriller 'The Hive'

Halle Berry To Star In Brad Anderson's Call Center Thriller 'The Hive'
So has Halle Berry been struck with the Oscar curse, or just been making mostly bad choices? Ever since winning for "Monster's Ball" a decade ago, she did the franchise thing in "Die Another Day" and the 'X-Men' trilogy of films and between those, she lined up a string of stinkers including "Catwoman," "Gothika" and "Perfect Strangers." Her attempted return to Oscar a couple of years ago, "Frankie & Alice," barely got a release and while "Things We Lost In The Fire" was a brief return to something substantial, this spring she toplines the dreadful looking shark movie "Dark Tide." So a thriller that takes place in a call center? That's right up her alley these days it seems.

The actress has signed on to the former Joel Schumacher project (never a good sign) "The Hive" to be directed by "The Machinist" helmer Brad Anderson. Penned by Rich D'Ovidio ("Thir13en Ghosts,

‘The Roommate’ Is On The Top Position for Weekend Box Office

As the country pumped up for Superbowl weekend, “The Roommate” had a successful weekend opening with $15.3 million despite being tackled and slammed by critics. The film has Sara Matthews (Minka Kelly) assigned with psychotic killer Rebecca (Leighton Meester) as a roommate. According to Rotten Tomatoes, the film earned a 9 percent critics rating, which is the third lowest of the year—barely above “Frankie and Alice” and “Waiting for Forever.” The other opening film was James Cameron’s “Sanctum,” which swam to the second position with $9.2 million. The thriller is about a group of cave divers seeking an exit after mother nature trapped them inside the earth. For the rest of the top five, “No Strings Attached” earned $8.4 million, a drop of 37.4 percent from the previous weekend to the third position. Oscar nominated “The King’s Speech” is still going very strong in fourth place with $8.3 million, a decrease of 24.9 percent.

Film Review: Halle Berry Expresses All Roles in ‘Frankie and Alice’

Chicago – The stunning looks of Halle Berry is always the lead whenever the entertainment media considers her. But in “Frankie and Alice,” she reminds us of why her career continues to flourish and why she is a Best Actress Oscar winner.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Berry plays a complex character ridden with the psychological burden of multiple personalities. Based on a true story, this is the type of situation that as a film could be exploited or trivialized. To the credit of the production and especially Halle Berry, it’s handled with sensitivity.

Berry portrays Frankie, a stripper in Los Angeles in 1973. There is something odd about her, as she is liable to pontificate on several bizarre angles of the profession. After picking up a guy named Cliff (Adrian Holmes), she has a mental breakdown in his presence. She switches from the personality of a streetwise stripper to a bigoted society lady, blathering

Interview: Actor Adrian Holmes Expands Range in ‘Frankie and Alice’

Chicago – Breaking through to the next level of name recognition in the acting field is the goal of all performers. Adrian Holmes, currently featured in the Halle Berry film, “Frankie and Alice,” is currently making his breakout move.

Holmes has been a professional actor since the early 1990s, working mostly out of the production centers in his native Canada. From there he has built a film and TV resume which includes “Smallville,” in which he played a Kryptonian named Basqat, to his roles in the Halle Berry film and the soon-to-be-released “Red Riding Hood.”

Their Best Role: Stellan Skarsgård in 'Insomnia'

Filed under: Features, Cinematical

Probably the most renowned Swedish actor working onscreen today (next to the venerable Max von Sydow), Stellan Skarsgård is a reliably solid presence in any film, big or small. And he's done it all, from obscure, harsh dramas like Juanita Wilson's recent 'As If I Am Not There' to big, fluffy musicals like 'Mamma Mia!' (granted, that was his only fluffy musical). A major part of the American movie-going public knows him as Bootstrap Bill from the last two 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies; a smaller segment recognizes him mainly from Lars von Trier films, and then there's Verner Vollstedt, his crazily overbearing director character on HBO's 'Entourage.'

Opening Friday is 'Frankie and Alice,' in which Skarsgård plays a psychiatrist to Halle Berry's multiple personalities. Most recently he gave a wonderful performance in dark Norwegian (redundant?) crime

Early Monday (January 31), it was announced that Halle Berry had dropped out of the upcoming "Valentine's Day" sequel "New Year's Eve" and would be replaced by Katherine Heigl. Hours later, Berry's rep told People magazine that the Oscar winner's departure is due to Berry's upcoming custody battle with model ex Gabriel Aubry over their 2-year-old daughter, Nahla.

"Halle has serious concerns for her daughter's well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her," her rep told the magazine. "She has attempted to resolve these custody issues amicably with her daughter's father, Gabriel Aubry, directly, but given his lack of cooperation, Halle has no

Halle Berry Wears Short Shorts For a Dentist Trip With Hot Olivier
Halle Berry's denim cutoffs were so short her pockets were peeking out the bottom during a trip to a dentist's office in La with Olivier Martinez yesterday. The actress has been taking care of important business this week, including checking out potential schools for Nahla in between romantic outings with Olivier. The happy couple has been enjoying each other's company at art shows and on his 45th birthday. Halle didn't score an Oscar nomination for her work in Frankie and Alice, though she will be there as a presenter during the big show. The past best actress winner could have more award season fodder added to her resume since Aretha Franklin is adamant that Halle should portray her in a biopic despite Berry's protests that she can't sing.
