Tomorrow in UK & Ireland sees the release of Sylvain Chomet’s The Illusionist a beautifully drawn animation set inEdinburgh and various beautiful spots around Scotland. The story centre’s around a old style stage magican in the 1950′s whose one of a dying breed of entertainers with the emergance of rock stars stealing his thunder and life is now work coming in the most obscure places. As things seem to be getting bad there’s one little girl, Alice who changes his life forever.

This movie will delight children and adults who love the tradition 2d form of animation which is completely different from the norm of the Walt Disney style but still has that enchanting element from the old disney flick. This is a qaulity film from a qaulity animator in the form of Slyvain Chomet who won 2 oscars in 2003 with his previous movie Belleville Rendez-Vous, so if you enjoyed that animation you’ll love this and if you love the legendary Jacques Tati (whose story this is based on) you really enjoy this.

The movie is on national release in UK & Ireland from tomorrow and Christmas day (25th December) in USA. Check out these two clips from the movie one called ‘Lady Singer’ showning the illusionist trying to win over the crowd and the second called Exercise showning our movies protaganist trying to get himself into a exercise regime!  Clips after the break...

synopsis:From visionary graphic artist and director Joann Sfar comes a completely original take on one of France’s greatest mavericks, the illustrious and infamous Serge Gainsbourg.GAINSBOURG is an enchanting glimpse at his early life, growing up in 1940s Nazi-occupied Paris, and through his successful song-writing years in the 1960s until his death in 1991. Taking the best from LA VIE EN ROSE and AMELIE, GAINSBOURG is one of 2010’s highly awaited films brought to us by one of the most beloved graphic artists of our time and the team behind the magical creatures of PAN’S LABYRINTH.

With the release of Clash Of The Titans only a few weeks away where we'll see Gemma Arterton in action but a few weeks later on April 30th Gemma will be appearance in a lesser known movie called The Dissappearance Of Alice Creed.
The movies sees Arterton as Alice a daughter of an millionaire who is kidnapped and held to ransom by 2 men played by the excellent Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes, Heartless) and Martin Compston (Sweet Sixteen, Damn United). At first Alice is terrified of her captor ex-cons Vic & Danny but realisation kicks in and she knows she has to fightback in order to survive.
This little UK indie thriller is full of  more twists and turns than the Amalfi Drive in Italy but what we do like about this movie is Eddie Marsan playing a sadistic evil vilian. The Disappearance of Alice Creed will be out in UK & Ireland on April 30th  and check out the UK trailer and a clip below...

Official site

Offical synopsis:  Two men - one in his twenties, the other nearer forty, both intensely focused on the task at hand - line the inside of a transit van with plastic. Shopping, they buy a drill, a mattress and other supplies. In a small flat they assemble a bed for the mattress and staple foam insulation and board to the walls and windows of a bedroom. Then, their meticulous preparations complete, they kidnap a young woman. They drag her from the street into the back of the van and, with a bag over her head and ball gag in her mouth, take her back to the flat, tying her to the bed in the room they have converted into a prison cell.

The kidnappers are Danny (Martin Compston) and Vic (Eddie Marsan), two ex-cons planning to make a mint on the ransom for the young woman. The younger, nervier of the two, Danny defers to the more experienced Vic, who acts with a steely conviction. Their hostage is Alice Creed (Gemma Arterton), daughter of a rich businessman, chosen by Vic and Danny as their passport to a better life. Terrified and immobile at first, it soon becomes clear that Alice isn't about to let her captors use her as capital without a fight. As determined to escape as Vic and Danny are to succeed, Alice enters into a battle of wills which strains the already fractious relationship between the two men. As the deadline for the exchange draws nearer, all three are brought close to breaking point, with Vic and Danny's foolproof plan descending into a desperate struggle for survival.

A taut, emotionally intense thriller, the debut feature from writer-director J Blakeson eschews genre convention, generating tension from the sexual and psychological ties that bind captive to captors. Produced by Adrian Sturges (The Escapist), the film stars Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, Prince of Persia), Eddie Marsan (Happy Go Lucky, Sherlock Holmes) and Martin Compston (Sweet Sixteen, Red Road).

Exclusive Clip of Vahalla Rising (Mads Mikkleson)

No comments: Links to this post

Recieved this exclusive clip from Vertigo Films over the weekend for Valhalla Rising  directed (and co -wrote) by Nicolas Winding Refn. who also directed the Pusher Trilogy and Bronson. Movie stars Mads Mikkleson (Casino Royale, Pusher Trilogy and soon Clash of The Titans remake) as the movies leading warrior  One-eye. Both men have worked together in previous movies and every director has their favourite lead as does every actor has their favourite directors.
Even though we have seen Soloman Kane we havent really seen a action packed epic actually based on people of our previous history and in this case vikings. A story which isn't covered up with over the top CGI but what you get is honest story telling with does have the brutality mixed in with (real) stunning backdrops.

Vahalla Rising did the rounds at many of the 2009 film festivals including London returning with positive reviews. The movie will be released in UK & Ireland by Vertigo and no release date yet confirmed but the movie will be released in Denmark this coming Friday, 5th March.

imdb synopsis:
1000 AD, for years, One Eye, a mute warrior of supernatural strength, has been held prisoner by the Norse chieftain Barde. Aided by Are, a boy slave, One Eye slays his captor and together he and Are escape, beginning a journey into the heart of darkness. On their flight, One Eye and Are board a Viking vessel, but the ship is soon engulfed by an endless fog that clears only as the crew sights an unknown land. As the new world reveals its secrets and the Vikings confront their terrible and bloody fate, One Eye discovers his true self

No comments: Links to this post

December 2nd see's the Descent Part 2,the  sequel to the cult British Horror movie from 1995.
Movie one I recently just watched on Film Four and it was a cast of unknown and I have to say Ive not really been a massive of an of British movies recently as the majority of them havent been great but I was impressed. The movie didn't have spectacular success but it did enough to gain a loyal hardcore base of fans as well as impress (and surprise) many movie critics.
Below is an exclusive clip of the movie which is out December 2nd in UK and Ireland and 2010 in the USA. The Descent 2 follows Sarah Carter is suffered a traumatic time in movie 1 seeing her husband and family been killed in a freak car accident  and goes on a all girl caving trip which goes horrifically wrong.  Recovering from the pyschological scars of the trip in a hospital Sarah must go with a rescue team back into the cave and face the horror again, with a few twists thrown in for good measure!
