Production is underway right now on Colossal, the next film from Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Open Windows, Extraterrestrial). The film is shooting in Vancouver with Anne Hathaway on board the project that has been described as Lost in Translation meets Godzilla (we’ll explain that below). And now one more cast member has just been added.
The Guest star Dan Stevens has taken one of the male leads in the film that has a very strange premise that seems to somehow blend romance and monster movies. Find out more about Dan Stevens joining Colossal and just what the movie is about after the jump. Read More »

It’s becoming increasingly common for filmmakers and actors to jump between TV and film — even Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson are doing it these days. And yet TV hasn’t quite shed its reputation as film’s less glamorous sibling.

She’ll star in The Ambassador’s Wife, a limited series based on the novel by Jennifer Steil. Get details on the Anne Hathaway TV project after the jump. Read More »

Anne Hathaway has done all kinds of movies over the course of her 15-year career, but even so this one sounds like a pretty offbeat choice for her.

There’s no denying the visceral power and prowess of Christopher Nolan‘s Intersellar. The ninth film from the popular director is his most ambitious, and it looks jaw-droppingly gorgeous. The sets, miniatures, and images of space travel and planets all combine to make a film the scope of which rivals any other space movie.
Emotionally, the film comes close to achieving a similarly momentous effect. Interstellar follows Coop (Matthew McConaughey), a father forced to leave his family in a possibly mad attempt to preserve the future of humanity by finding another habitable planet. The tale is filled with drama, humor, intense action and surprising plot twists. There’s rarely a dull moment in the movie because the story is so compelling and poignant.

Even with a nearly three-hour runtime, so many ideas are presented that the film rarely has time to focus on one over another. The result is a technical marvel with a powerful narrative that ends up feeling a tad empty because we aren’t sure exactly which point it’s trying to make. Read More »
