Casting Society Of America Awards

And just when we thought we’d never have to write Michel Hazanavicius’ name again…

Fashionably late but boringly predictable, the Casting Society of America have released the nominations for their October Awards ceremony. Sticking very much to the films lauded by different circles in the run-up to the Oscars, having their nominations now allows some leeway for 2012 films, but exposes a glaring omission in the shape of Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris.

The full list of nominees for a category that many feel the Oscars should bring in can be seen below: Continue reading

Interview: Phil Lord And Chris Miller Talk 21 Jump Street And The Lego Movie As ‘Inception For Kids’ – HeyUGuys

To celebrate the release of 21 Jump Street on DVD and Blu-ray, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to speak to the directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, about the film and their upcoming projects.

Touching on everything from Channing Tatum’s love for improvising stunts to Tom Selleck’s moustache, it’s fair to say our interview covered rather a lot of ground! Every inch as charming and entertaining as you’d expect, the pair gave a brilliant insight into the funniest film of the year.

The Great Trailer Debate – Week 1

Trailers come and trailers go and, to be fair, a lot of people don’t watch them unless they happen to be spliced onto the front of whatever film you’ve gone to see at the cinema. But that couldn’t be further from the truth in regards to Nadine (find her blog here) and I. So, we’ve decided to bring you The Great Trailer Debate, a bitesize and easy to digest way of glancing over what the week’s had to offer. This week we cover Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, ParaNorman, The Lorax, Shame, American Reunion, We Need To Talk About Kevin, Wanderlust, Underworld Awakening, Safe House and 21 Jump Street. And remember – a good trailer doesn’t necessarily bring us a good film. Continue reading
