In 1948, Seretse Khama, the king of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), married Ruth Williams, a London office worker – very much against the wishes of Great Britain, South Africa and their own families.
They changed history.
A United Kingdom is their story. It will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival before opening in the United Kingdom on November 25th. North American dates have not yet been set. Check out the trailer after the break.
Thanks to the caring folks at WETA – the power behind the worlds of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies – the great Gerry Anderson created Thunderbirds are coming back in a series that mixes CG animation with live-action miniature sets.
Follow the jump for an introductory video showing a glimpse of the world inhabited by the Tracy Family and International Rescue. Thunderbirds are go! Again! (And it’s about time!)
Nick and Amy Dunne has been married for five years – in fact, she disappears on the morning of the couple’s fifth anniversary. At first, Nick seems appropriately upset, but gradually his behaviour seems to be in conflict with his declared desire to find her. Did he kill her?
I’ve seen Hector and the Search for Happiness three times and a bit – only the first two were versions of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (Danny Kaye, 1947 and Ben Stiller, 2013) and the bit was parts of a TV series called My World and Welcome To It, all of which were based on the writing s of James Thurber.
It’s always fun when a movie title describes precisely what’s in the box. Hector and the Search for Happiness. Seriously, what more do you need to know? Other than that it’s one of the films making its North American Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival – and that it stars Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgård and Jean Reno.
There are two trailers for Hector after the jump. One is apparently the regular theatrical trailer (which I like, a lot) and the other is for TIFF (which I also like, but a little less). Feel free to check them both out and let us know which makes you happier.
The new trailer for David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl rakes Ben Affleck’s Nick Dunn over the goals as police and the press try to figure out of he’s responsible for the disappearance of his wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike). At one point, Nick is referred to as ‘The most hated man in America!’
Check out the new trailer after the jump. Gone Girl skulks into theaters on October 3rd.
Clash of the Titans was not an awful movie – or rather, wouldn’t have been if the 3D hadn’t been so bad – but it was no great fantasy-action flick, either. Wrath of the Titans may actually have less plot – less actual story – but it is superior in every way. In fact, it is a decent enough time-waster for a spring afternoon – it moves quickly, has glorious special effects, the CG effects have genuine heft and the 3D is quite wonderful.
