Bo Report: ‘Top End Wedding’ charms audiences as ‘Avengers: Endgame’ soars

‘Top End Wedding.’

Released in the slipstream of the Disney/Marvel Studios’ juggernaut Avengers: Endgame, Wayne Blair’s Top End Wedding proved effective counter-programming last weekend.

The romantic comedy starring Miranda Tapsell, Gwilym Lee, Kerry Fox, Huw Higginson and Shari Sebbens wooed $1.1 million at 287 locations and $1.588 million with paid previews for Universal Pictures.

The opening was slightly behind that of Jeremy SimsLast Cab to Darwin’s $1.14 million, which finished with $7.4 million.

So, given the largely positive reviews and favourable word-of-mouth, the film co-written by Tapsell and Joshua Tyler and produced by Goalpost PicturesRosemary Blight and Kylie du Fresne and Kojo’s Kate Croser could well reach $7 million.

The launch date was locked in before Universal took over eOne’s theatrical releases and before anyone knew the latest Marvel title would smash industry records in Australia and globally.

The superhero action adventure directed by the Russo brothers scored $13.6 million in Oz,

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
Last Year’s Winner: Peter Dinklage, “Game of Thrones

Still Eligible: Yes.

Hot Streak: In bad news for Peter Dinklage, the TV Academy really doesn’t like to hand out back-to-back honors for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series — not that Dinklage hasn’t already noticed. His three wins have come in 2011, 2015, and 2018, breaking up the only other repeat winner of the decade’s would-be hot streaks; Aaron Paul, who won for “Breaking Bad” in 2010, 2012, and 2014. Oddly enough, they’re two of just four supporting actors to win three trophies, and the other two — Art Carney (“The Jackie Gleason Show”) and Don Knotts (“The Andy Griffith Show”) — racked up all their wins in three consecutive years. Still, the last actor to win back-to-back in this category was Ray Walston for “Picket Fences” in 1995 and 1996.

Fun Fact: With the above in mind, perhaps the best evidence of Emmy voters spreading

Film Review: ‘The Chaperone’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘The Chaperone’
When you watch the silent-screen star Louise Brooks in one of the films that made her a legend, most spectacularly the glittering femme-fatale drama “Pandora’s Box” (1929), it’s shocking to see how contemporary she looks. Haircuts that were once cutting edge — punk spikes, a ’50s ducktail, Jane Fonda’s “Klute” shag — look, almost inevitably with time, less radical than they once did, but Brooks’ girl-in-a-black-helmet look is nearly 100 years old, and in its Joan of Arc of the Jazz Age way it still looks like something out of a sci-fi fantasy. It’s the sharpness of the angles — they look like they could slice you — and the jet-black lacquered sheen of it.

And, of course, it’s the ivory-skinned siren who wore it. Brooks, unlike every other actress of the silent era, even the greatest ones, didn’t go in for grand displays; she understated her smiling freedom and sensuality,

‘The Chaperone’ Review: Haley Lu Richardson Dazzles as Louise Brooks in Someone’s Else Story

‘The Chaperone’ Review: Haley Lu Richardson Dazzles as Louise Brooks in Someone’s Else Story
Early in “The Chaperone,” a young Louise Brooks (Haley Lu Richardson) huffs that historical fiction bores her, then promptly spoils the historical fiction novel that Norma Carlisle (Elizabeth McGovern) is reading. It’s the sort of tongue-in-cheek gag that doesn’t fare so well in Michael Engler’s dry adaptation of Laura Moriarty’s book of the same name, a work of historical fiction that imagines Brooks’ earliest days in New York City through the eyes of her titular chaperone.

While Moriarty’s novel functioned as a compelling story about two women from different backgrounds converging during a pivotal time in American history, Engler’s film turns much of its attention to Norma’s story, jettisoning the very best part of the film along the way. Is Louise Brooks not enthralling enough for her own biopic? Although it’s called “The Chaperone,” the film is illuminated by the full force of Richardson’s charm.

Elizabeth McGovern & Haley Lu Richardson in 'The Chaperone' Trailer

"She will need to prove that she can adhere to the moral code of Denishawn." PBS has unveiled an official trailer for an indie drama titled The Chaperone, based on the book by Laura Moriarty. This premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival last year, and also played at the Mill Valley Film Festival in the fall. The Chaperone is the other collaboration between "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes, who wrote the script, and director Michael Engler, who is also directing the Downton Abbey movie coming out this fall. Set in the early 1920s, a Kansas woman finds her life forever changed when she accompanies a young dancer as a chaperone on her fame-seeking journey to New York. Haley Lu Richardson plays the dancer, Louise, and Elizabeth McGovern is her chaperone Norma - which Louise's mother insisted upon or she wouldn't be allowed to go.

‘The Chaperone’ Trailer: Flapper-Era Tale Of Rebellious Future Star & A Stuffy Matron From ‘Downton Abbey’ Team
“I know you’re pretty and the boys like you, but I’m here to protect you.” So says Norma Carlisle (Downton Abbey‘s Elizabeth McGovern), a local society matron in Kansas who never broke a rule in her life and impulsively volunteers to accompany Louise Brooks (Haley Lu Richardson) to New York while the teenager studies dance for the summer. The question is Norma’s motivation, which we learn in the first trailer for The Chaperone, from the Downton Abbey team of writer Julian Fellowes and director Michael Engler.

Brooks would go on to become a silver-screen star and flapper icon of the 1920s, but this film is based on Laura Moriarty’s fiction novel. Here’s the story: At 15, Brooks is a student in Wichita for whom fame and fortune were only dreams. When the opportunity arises for her to go to New York to study with a leading dance troupe,

  • The Wrap

Spacey was fired from the Netflix series and written out of the show’s upcoming final season.
