Movie Review: Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina PosterAnna Karenina
Directed by Joe Wright
Written by Tom Stoppard
Starring: Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kelly Macdonald
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 130 Minutes
Release Date: November 30, 2012

“Rummaging in our souls, we often dig up something that ought to have lain there unnoticed.”Tolstoy

Baz Luhrmann meets Terrance Malick in this excruciatingly exquisite adaptation of Leo Tolstoy‘s 19th century novel, Anna Karenina.

Directed Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice), with a script by famed British playwright Tom Stoppard, the film details the tragedy of married aristocrat and socialite Anna Karenina (Keira Knightley) and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).

A charming, well-off bachelor, Vronsky pursues Anna, asking her to leave her husband Karenin (Jude Law), a high-ranking government official. Unhappy with the lack of love in her marriage, Anna flirts and dances with Vronsky in public, leaving her vulnerable to the scrutiny of her peers. A passionate affair ensues, and the private matters of Anna Karenina are soon put on stage before all of Russian high-society.

There have been more than fifteen feature films titled Anna Karenina, and that doesn’t even include the made-for-television versions. What makes Joe Wright’s adaptation different is the cinematic vocabulary used to bring Tolstoy’s classic novel to life. Wright’s rhythmic, dreamlike direction turns Anna Karenina into a stage play within the colossal theatre of Russian society.

Jack Ryan Header

Chris Pine seems to have a bad habit of riding a motorcycle without his helmet. But when you get play as Jack Ryan, I don’t think it really matters. Paramount Pictures has just released the first photo of Pine playing as the titular character in the upcoming film titled Jack Ryan. Check out the full image of Pine below.

Now there is not a lot to take away from this photo alone. The photo is what it is, which is Pine cruising down the streets of New York City on a Ducati (which is a very cool and very fast motorcycle by the way) without his helmet. We don’t know where Jack Ryan is heading, but he seems to be determined to make it to his destination on time, even risking breaking the law to do so.

Chris Pine

The Jack Ryan reboot is all ready to go. Kenneth Branagh will direct the film and be the villain as well; it’s got Chris Pine as the lead actor; Keira Knightley as the lead actress; and now the film has a tentative release date.

Paramount even has plans to make Jack Ryan (which is also the title of the film) into a trilogy. Oh yeah, there’s also a spin off titled Without Remorse, and the studio is trying to court Tom Hardy for the lead role. So to say that Paramount has some big plans for Jack Ryan would be an understatement.

Keira Knightley Header

It wasn’t too long ago that Keira Knightley, Evangeline Lilly, and Felicity Jones were all vying for the role of Jack Ryan’s wife in the upcoming Jack Ryan reboot. Now director and star Kenneth Branagah and Paramount have made their choice and they are going with Keira Knightley. Though the actress has much more cinematic experience than any of the other two – which may or may not have factored into the decision – either of the two actress that weren’t picked would have been excellent choices.

Knightley will play Jack Ryan’s wife in the film. It has been reported that this role will require some involvement in the action sequences in the film, something that was never really seen from any of the other actresses who portrayed Jack Ryan’s wife in the previous installments. Jack Ryan will be played by Chris Pine, who has been long attached to play the role.

Focus Features
Rated R | 93 Minutes

“It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.” – R.E.M

Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (writer, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist), Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World is a warm, charming, and well-acted film that explores what people will do when humanity’s last days are at hand.

As the massive asteroid Matilda hurtles toward Earth, Dodge (Steve Carell) finds himself alone after his not-so-faithful wife (Nancy Carell) abandons him in an apocalyptic panic. This isn’t Armageddon though, Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck aren’t going to save the day this time. Dodge and the rest of the human race have 21 days until Matilda smashes into the planet, an extinction-level event no amount of “Leaving On A Jet Plane” and animal crackers can prevent.

London Boulevard

London Boulevard
DIRECTED BY: William Monahan
WRITTEN BY: William Monahan
STARRING: Colin Farrell, Keira Knightley, Ray Winstone, Anna Friel, David Thewlis, Ben Chaplin, Stephen Graham, Eddie Marsan
IFC Films
RELEASE DATE: October 5, 2011 (on demand); November 11, 2011 (limited theatrical release)

Writer William Monahan has made quite a name for himself as a screenwriter, crafting the scripts for films such as Kingdom of Heaven, Body of Lies, Edge of Darkness, and The Departed, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Now Monahan is stepping behind the camera for his directorial debut, London Boulevard (which he also wrote), but can he find the same kind of success as the man in charge?

The movie follows Mitchel (Colin Farrell), a very dangerous man who’s just getting out of prison. As is the case with most who come out of prison, he’s now facing two paths: one leading right back to his old life, while the other leads to a fresh start. Mitch tries to go legit and wants nothing to do with the life of crime he once knew, but unfortunately for him that’s a difficult feat to accomplish when some of the people closest to you are trying to pull you back in.

‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 4’ To Begin Filming This Summer; Blackbeard & Fountain Of Youth Confirmed

Pirates

With all of the drama that has been going on with Disney, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides — the fourth installment in the franchise — and star Johnny Depp, it’s a miracle that things are still full steam ahead. But as it were, not only is it all moving forward, but the movie is now planning to begin shooting this Summer with Depp ready to go for at least this one last time.

Now, since the ending of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, everyone has expected any additional movies to involve the long-desired Fountain of Youth. We were even informed that the movie would be based on Tim Powers‘ 1987 book that inspired the sub-title, On Stranger Tides, which did involve the Fountain, but still nothing had really been confirmed yet…that I had known about.

As it turns out, Empire Magazine actually spoke to Pirates writer Terry Rossio back in October, and all was confirmed then. And while the book in question is not the full inspiration of the new movie, it has enough of the elements that the film makers wanted to use that it was just safer and easier to acquire the rights to the novel as well.
