Richard Curtis, writer/director, and several cast members from their hit movie Love Actually will reunite for Red Nose Day Actually, a short film to air on NBC’s Red Nose Day Special.
Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Andrew Lincoln and Rowan Atkinson are among the cast members who will take part. Red Nose Day Actually will be seen in the U.S. on May 25th, and in the UK on March 25th.
In Laggies, Keira Knightley stars as Megan, a 28-year old woman who has never grown up – despite a really good education. When her high school sweetheart proposes, she freaks out at the thought of so specific a future and takes a week to try to think things through – or not.
She crashes with her 16-year old friend, Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and her father, world weary Craig (Sam Rockwell).
Laggies, directed by Lynne Shelton, premieres in select theaters on October 24th and goes wide on November 7th. Follow the jump for further details – and a new slightly NSFW clip.
Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game tells the story of how mathematician Alan Turing helped break The Enigma Code – the unbreakable code devised by the Germans during World War II – enabling England and her allies access to the intelligence necessary to win the war.
Check out the tension-filled trailer after the jump. The Imitation Game – starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightly, Charles Dance, Matthew Goode and Mark Strong – opens on November 21st.
It seems like, more and more, there are movies devoting themselves to coming age stories about people who should have come of age a decade earlier. The latest in this odd sub-sub-genre is Laggies, about Megan, a twenty-eight year old woman who hides out in the home of Annika (Chloe Grace Moretz) a young friend for a week as she faces the drama of being a grown up – much to the confusion of Annika’s father (Sam Rockwell)..
Laggies will be in select theaters on October 24th. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go, based on the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro, is a measured, beautifully shot science fiction tale that neither looks or feels like science fiction. It is a melancholy reflection on what makes us human – explored through the lives of three special children who have attended a classic British boarding school. If Merchant Ivory had made a science fiction film, this is what it would have looked like.
In the criminally underseen In Bruges, Colin Farrell won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of a hitman. In the upcoming London Boulevard – which hits UK screens later this month – he returns to that kind of role as he plays an ex-con turned celebrity bodyguard [Keira Knightley plays the celebrity] whose past [in the form of Ray Winstone’s godfather-like character] won’t leave him be. Think of of it as a UK mash-up of In Bruge, The Godfather and The Bodyguard. It’s also the directorial debut by Academy Award-winning [for The Departed] screenwriter William Monahan, who also wrote the script. Sounds like a lot of fun to me.
The trailer for Atonement had me giddy with excitement I thought I was going to be in for a truly epic love story that spanned time, distance, war, betrayal, but what I got was this anemic, pretentious, non-epic turd. I love Keira Knightley (Cecilia Tallis) but frankly she can’t act and it’s proven once again here.Her face looked strangely like it’s been CGI’ed.Her mouth moves but there’s no expression in her cheeks or eyes. It looks so plastic that it was creepy. And that’s a word I’ll be using a lot throughout this review – CREEPY.The entire experience of watching this film felt CREEPY.There’s the CREEPY friend of her brother, Leon Tallis (played by Patrick Kennedy), a wealthy owner of a Chocolate factory, Paul Marshall (Benedict Cumberbatch) who turns out to be a pedophile. Then there is Cecilia’s creepy looking 13 year old sister Briony Tallis (Saoirse Ronan), and her visiting cousins, these two curly haired ugly looking kids and their older sister Lola Quincey (Juno Temple) who looked 11 or 12, but they strangely dressed her up to look older.Think Jon Bonnet Ramsey.
