    Ewan McGregor & Emily Blunt Talk 'Salmon Fishing In The Yemen'; Simon Beaufoy Teases 'Catching Fire' & 'Sharp Teeth' With Danny Boyle

    Is “Salmon Fishing In The Yemen” a love story, or a tale of political impossibilities? Based on Paul Torday’s nonfiction novel, the new Lasse Hallstrom film pivots on the relationship between uptight fisheries expert Fred and plucky consultant Harriet, as they find themselves straying from their par...

    In Theaters: Take Some 'Friends With Kids' To See 'John Carter' Or Get Out Of The 'Silent House' For Some 'Salmon Fishing In The Yemen'

    TGIF betches! I set off for the magical land of queso and breakfast tacos tonight-- yep! Going to Austin for SXSW. But not without a little Friday In Theaters to set you off right. It just wouldn't be right to depart without a mild rant about the "John Carter" marketing campaign! Yes, this weekend t...

    Review: 'Salmon Fishing In The Yemen' Is All Heart and No Brain

    Picking on "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen" makes us feel like a bit of a bully, as though we're mercilessly teasing that super nice but incredibly dumb girl in class. It's an affable, inoffensive British comedy that just wants you to like it so much that you can't help but snicke...

    Lasse Hallstrom Talks 'Salmon Fishing In The Yemen' & Says He Won't Return For Planned Sequel To 'The Hypnotist'

    It's possible you may have not noticed it, but three-time Academy Award nominee Lasse Hallstrom has become an immensely prolific director. Though he was Miramax's go-to guy in the late nineties and early aughts, that company's significantly lower profile led to him moving in another direction. But h...

    Trailer: Who Knew 'Salmon Fishing In The Yemen' Was So Magical?

    While Lasse Halstrom will always have "My Life As A Dog," "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" and "The Cider House Rules" to his resume, in recent years, his string of increasingly mediocre-to-terrible films have nearly erased any pleasant memories we might have had. So w...

    Werner Herzog Convinces Sundance Selects To Release 'Into The Abyss' Next Month Instead Of Next Year

    'Salmon Fishing In Yemen' Baits Spring Release DateWerner Herzog is having one helluva 2011. His 3D documentary "Cave Of Forgotten Dreams" has been an arthouse smash hit, still playing theaters (in Montreal where this writer is from, it was brought back for as second run due to popular demand -- that pretty much never happens) and in the best casting news of the year, Herzog landed the villain role opposite Tom Cruise in the thriller "One Shot." Just typing that out still makes our mind reel. He hit TIFF last month with his new documentary "Into The Abyss," and while Sundance Selects were going to wait until 2012 to release it, Herzog has twi...

    Watch: 2 Clips From ‘Salmon Fishing In The Yemen’ With Ewan McGregor & Emily Blunt

    When we saw that "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen," the latest from director Lasse Hallstrom had been added to the TIFF slate, we didn't go out of our way to find time to see it. The director, who impressed with "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" and "The Cider House Rules" has long settled into helming a string of increasingly mediocre films like "An Unfinished Life," "The Hoax," "Hachi: A Dog's Tale" and last year's intolerable "Dear John." So can you blame us if we didn't carve out time to see it in Toronto? Turns out the joke was on us, as according to most people we heard from, "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen" was a pleasant surprise. Nothing earth-...

    CBS Films In Talks To Buy TIFF Hit 'Salmon Fishing In The Yemen' With Ewan McGregor & Emily Blunt

    It's been a fairly quiet market for big film deals at Toronto so far, with the sole major sale -- that of "Shame" to Fox Searchlight -- having been in the works since Venice, and even then, the film reportedly only sold for a six-figure sum, the film's backers placing great importance on being able...

    The Amazing Race: 10 Dark Horses That Could Shake Up The Awards Season

    Last time we talked about the awards race, we were halfway through the year, and it was anyone's game, with only a handful of even vaguely serious contenders emerging both from wide releases, and from the festivals up to Cannes. Our conclusion was that only "Midnight in Paris," "The Artist" and "The...
