UK box office preview: 'Sorry To Bother You', 'Old Man And The Gun' headline quiet week

UK box office preview: 'Sorry To Bother You', 'Old Man And The Gun' headline quiet week
White Boy Rick also among new openers.

It is a weekend of scant new releases at the UK box office, with holdovers including Ralph Breaks The Internet and Creed II likely to dominate the chart.

Universal’s Sorry To Bother You is a new opener this weekend. The film, a satire on race and greed, premiered at Sundance this year to strong write-ups. Writer-director Boots Riley, making his feature debut, is a bigger name in the Us (where the film grossed $17.5m) than the UK, which could temper its box office prospects.

Evolution of Natalie Portman, From ‘Léon: The Professional’ to ‘Vox Lux’ (Photos)
Since making it onto the silver screen in “Leon: The Professional,” Natalie Portman has continued to impress and succeed under the spotlight, and then some with directing and producer creds. Before “Vox Lux” hits theaters soon, let’s reflect on the actress’s iconic career trajectory.

Leon (1994)

The Israel-born model turned actress first broke onto the film scene at 13 as the Mathilda in “Leon: The Professional.” Delivering a strong performance as a vengeful apprentice for Jean Reno’s skilled Leon, Portman snagged her first major acting credit – and an impressive one at that.

Beautiful Girls (1996)

Portman showcased her ability to work alongside Hollywood bigwigs like Matt Dillon, Rosie O’Donnell and Uma Thurman. As the smart-talking, teenage Marty, Portman charmed people both on and off screen. This was one of the last roles Portman took on before venturing exploring the Broadway stage as the titular character in “The Diary of Anne Frank.

‘Long Walk To Freedom’ Director Justin Chadwick Teams With Me+You To Tell Story Of Young Cancer Survivor

  • Deadline
Me+You Productions, the producer of Sky comedy Sick of It, has teamed with director Justin Chadwick, who helmed the Idris Elba-fronted Nelson Mandela biopic Long Walk To Freedom, on the story of a young British boy diagnosed with a severe brain tumor.

The indie, which recently struck a U.S. representation deal with Wme, has secured exclusive access to the family of Ashya King and is now developing a three-part, fact-based drama that explores their story,

Saving Ashya is the story of a young British boy who was diagnosed with a severe brain tumor in 2014. Against medical advice, his parents ‘abducted’ him from his NHS hospital bed and fled to Europe for alternative proton therapy. The resulting international manhunt sparked a huge media frenzy. Ashya’s parents were publicly criticized and incarcerated, causing the UK’s Prime Minister, David Cameron, to personally intervene. Now free of cancer, Ashya

‘The State Against Mandela and the Others’ Review: Nelson Mandela Documentary Corrects Oversight in Biopics — Cannes 2018

‘The State Against Mandela and the Others’ Review: Nelson Mandela Documentary Corrects Oversight in Biopics — Cannes 2018
The life of iconic activist and South African president Nelson Mandela is the subject of multiple features, including “Invictus,” “Mandela,” and Idris Elba’s criminally underrated turn in Justin Chadwick’s “Long Walk to Freedom.” However, when these narratives detailed the trial that convicted him of treason, the nine other defendants hardly rated a footnote. A nonfiction feature, “The State Against Mandela and the Others,” bridges that gap.

While Mandela led South Africa’s anti-apartheid movement here his lesser-known co-defendants take center stage. Directors Nicolas Champeaux and Gilles Porte’s documentary is the most in-depth examination of the Mandela’s trial, rolling back the veil of secrecy to reveal the day-to-day courtroom testimony.

Based on 280 hours of sound archives from Mandela’s trial with nine other men between 1963 and 1964, “The State Against Mandela” utilizes fresh techniques and technology to chronicle everything from the arrest to the indictment and eventual sentencing.

Keira Knightley to leak Official Secrets for director Gavin Hood

Oscar-nominated actress Keira Knightley is set to take on the role of Gchq whileblower Katharine Gun in Official Secrets, a new film from director Gavin Hood (Eye in the Sky), which also has Matt Smith attached to star.

Gun was working as a Mandarin translator at the British government’s communications HQ, Gchq, when she leaked a confidential Us National Security Agency email to the Observer newspaper, revealing that she’d been asked to help the Us government spy on Un security council delegations in order to help swing favour towards an invasion of Iraq.

““I found Katharine’s story fascinating,” states Hood. “It’s a story that has largely been overlooked. Even in the recent Iraq inquiry, which was otherwise very thorough, she was not called to testify. Katharine’s story is a very important piece of the Iraq war puzzle and one which has been missing for too long.

Our Favorite Faces Of Alicia Vikander

This weekend saw the premiere of Justin Chadwick's long-awaited period drama Tulip Fever, a film with a cast worth at least several boxes of black bulbs. In it we see Dane DeHaan, Alicia Vikander, Christoph Waltz, Judy Dench, Kevin McKidd, Zach Galifianakis... and Cara Delevingne's appearance even makes you briefly wonder if this is meant to be a Valerian prequel. Plenty of choice this week for the "Our Favorite Faces" article, as you'll agree, and out of that group I'm choosing Alicia Vikander. Just reading her short bio makes me gasp in wonder: a Swedish dancer who turned actress a few years ago, she's not even 29 but has won over 60 acting awards already, including the Academy award for Best Actress in a Supporting...

‘Do It Like An Hombre’ Trounced ‘Tulip Fever’ at the Box Office, in Half the Theaters
Labor Day weekend is the calm before the specialized storm. “Wind River” (Weinstein) went wide quickly, and managed the #3 spot it an weak period for most theaters. The company also released its long-blooming “Tulip Fever,” which flopped as expected with just over $1 million. Meanwhile, Lionsgate/Pantelion’s “Do It Like An Hombre,” a low-budget Mexican comedy, did twice as well in half the theaters.

Tulip Fever review – long-delayed period drama fails to bloom

Alicia Vikander, Christoph Waltz and Judi Dench all find themselves lost in a beleaguered adaptation of a 17th-century potboiler that gradually turns into a far-fetched soap opera

Hollywood film-making is all about big bets, and somewhere along the way, enough reasonable people convinced themselves that a period drama full of corsets, ruffs and tavern wenches set against the 17th-century Dutch tulip market was going to be a hit. But now that Justin Chadwick’s much-delayed adaptation of Deborah Moggach’s novel has finally been released, we must look to the words Alicia Vikander’s love-and-economics-struck Sophia Sandvoort says during her darkest moment: “The fever has broken.”

‘Tulip Fever’ Review: This Bizarre, Long-Delayed Historical Romance Was Not Worth the Wait
The behind-the-scenes release date drama surrounding Justin Chadwick’s long-delayed and oft-moved “Tulip Fever” has managed to keep the beleaguered Weinstein Company release in the cultural zeitgeist for at least a year longer than it should have. It ping-ponged from a July 2016 release to a February 2017 release, which then moved to August, and then September.

It was not worth the wait. And, judging by the chopped-up feel of the final product (and word from audiences that saw earlier cuts), those well-publicized calendar moves only resulted in a film that’s been repeatedly edited into a bizarre, boring final product that packs as much punch as a light sneeze or a gentle cough. A fever it is not.

Based on Deborah Moggach’s best-selling novel of the same name (and scripted by the author with Tom Stoppard), “Tulip Fever” is set in 17th century Holland, during the height of the eponymous

'Tulip Fever' Review: This D.O.A. Period Piece Should've Died on the Vine

'Tulip Fever' Review: This D.O.A. Period Piece Should've Died on the Vine
Forget fever – this floral-scented fiasco is so lifeless you can barely feel a pulse. Tulip Fever, which was shot in 2014 but only hitting theaters now after years of recutting, retooling and release-date reshuffling, should have been allowed to die on the vine. Is it one of those clunkers that's so godawful it’s great fun? You wish. The film just sits there onscreen like a wilting flower with nothing to nourish it.

On the surface, at least, it looks like a class act, a period piece about the tulip boom in 17th-century Amsterdam.

One Final Red Band Trailer for 'Tulip Fever' Featuring Alicia Vikander

"Seduction is a dangerous art." In a very strange, desperate, last minute move The Weinstein Company has debuted one more new sex-filled red band trailer for the romantic drama Tulip Fever, which has had so many release delays I don't think anyone even care anymore. This film is going to crash and burn, and no one is going to see it, which is fine because these trailers show enough. Alicia Vikander stars as a Dutch woman married to a rich and powerful merchant, played by Christoph Waltz, who begins an affair with a painter, played by Dane DeHaan. Set in 17th Century Amsterdam, this also stars: Holliday Grainger, Jack O'Connell, Zach Galifianakis, Dame Judi Dench, Matthew Morrison, Tom Hollander and Cara Delevingne. I'm so tired of even writing posts about this movie, hopefully this is the very last time. Here's the very final red band trailer for Justin Chadwick's Tulip Fever,
