    Rachel Weisz Joins Colin Firth In POW Drama 'The Railway Man'

    After a year of fairly tough work, dealing with infidelity and depression in "The Deep Blue Sea", U.N. corruption in "The Whistleblower," and forgetting to turn down roles in "360" and "Dream House," the next year or so sees Rachel Weisz heading to tentpole te...

    Plot Details Firmed Up For Terrence Malick's Untitled Ben Affleck/Rachel McAdams Film

    That's His Next Film, Not His Next Next Film, His Next Next Next Film Or His Next Next Next Next FilmWhat in the name of grace and nature has gotten into Terrence Malick recently? With the announcement yesterday of two new projects both starring Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett -- "Lawless," also with Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara, and "Knight of Cups" with Isabel Lucas -- it means that the reclusive auteur looks likely to make more films in the space of this decade than he did in the previous 35 put together. Of course, he unveiled "The Tree of Life" this year, and has the IMAX documentary "Voyage of Time" reportedly still in the works, not ...

    Director Jim Sheridan Didn't Like 'Dream House' Either, Tried To Take Name Off Film

    Could Direct 'Sheriff Street Stories' About Childhood In Ireland NextIt's always disappointing when strong directors come out with a film that is absolutely terrible. Jim Sheridan's "Dream House," with an 8% critics' rating on Rotten Tomatoes and only $14.5 million dollars in box office so far, initially had a boatload of promise with charismatic stars Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts, but what we saw was terrifyingly bad (and not because trailers promised a horror story à la Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining"). And just as everyone was beginning to wonder what had happened, besides the extensive reshoots, the LA Times reported late la...

    Watch: Rachel Weisz & Tom Hiddleston In Handsome Trailer For Terence Davies' 'The Deep Blue Sea'

    At one stage, 2011 threatened to be the year of Rachel Weisz, with no fewer than five films set for release and several potential awards contenders among them. But things haven't quite turned out as planned; she picked up good reviews for "The Whistleblower," but the film didn't get much traction, ...

    TIFF '11 Review: Fernando Meirelles' International Love Story '360' May Leave His Fans Heartbroken

    In a photo studio in Vienna, a sleazy photographer (Johannes Krisch) is coaxing a young Slovakian woman Mirkha (Lucia Siposová) into posing for her first nude pictures. We soon find out this man is also a pimp and the pictures are for luring clients on the internet. Her younger sister Anna (Gabriela Marcinkova) tries to persuade her to reconsider but she has her mind made up. She needs the money and wants to change her life. Her sister intones through darkly humorous voiceover “If there’s a fork in the road, take it.” It’s a highly provocative opening for what ends up being just a so-so anthology of interweaving tales, even though director Fe...

    Last time we saw the handsome Tom Hiddleston he was moments from having the Tesseract in his hand at the close of "Thor." It looks like he's gotten his hands on a far more enchanting item in the poster for "The Deep Blue Sea," as he clutches the lovely Rachel Weisz in the throes of passion. Lucky Lo...

    ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ To Close BFI London Film Festival

    Schoolboy euphemisms aside, there are presumably worse predicaments to find yourself in than being bookended by Rachel Weisz. No sooner had the organisers of the London Film Festival announced that one of Weisz’s forthcoming films would open the proceedings, Fernando Meirelles' “360,” when Empire got word that the actress’ long-awaited lead performance in Terence Davies’ “The Deep Blue Sea” will close out the festival. As is usually the case for the LFF, they’re cherry-picking the best of what’s on offer elsewhere. Both “360” and “The Deep Blue Sea” will premiere at Toronto in September, and the latter will also crop up at the San Sebasti...
