Netflix's The Crown

Back in January we saw a pair of sizzle reels for a couple of Netflix’s upcoming original titles, The Crown and The Get Down…which would also work as a single title people would be curious to learn more about.

The Get Down has already been released, but The Crown still has a little over a month before its arrival. Until then, Netflix has released a new trailer for the series, which follows the reign of Queen Elizabeth II beginning in 1947.

Continue below to watch the new trailer.

Movie Review: Rush

Movie Review: Rush Poster

Rush
Director: Ron Howard
Screenwriter: Peter Morgan
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Pierfrancesco Favino
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 122 Minutes
Release Date: September 27, 2013

Academy Award winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon) reunites with writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a film about the ’70s rivalry between Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

Rush stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers) as English playboy James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as Niki Lauda, a methodical Austrian racing driver and brilliant mechanic.

Ron Howard has made some great films: Apollo 13, Willow, A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon, and, of course, 1982’s Night Shift. He’s made a lot of disappointing, forgettable films too: The Dilemma, Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Edtv – just to name a few. Rush is somewhere in-between, a gorgeous looking film by cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle (Dredd, Slumdog Millionaire) with two fantastic performances, but a script that is labored, cliché, and – dare I say it – slightly misogynistic.

Sacha Baron Cohen & Freddy Mercury

We found out that Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen was going to play Freddie Mercury, the late great singer of the band Queen, back in 2010. But now, sadly, the actor has been forced to walk away from the project.

Cohen brought in two-time Academy Award nominee Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) to write the script, and he had been looking for potential directors to take on the biopic. Unfortunately he could never find approval from the remaining members of Queen, who have final say on both the screenplay and director. According to sources, it was this same final say from Queen that also ultimately led to Cohen’s departure. While he was aiming to make a more mature, R-rated tell-all about Mercury, Queen seems determined for the movie to be a more family-friendly PG-rated biopic.

The movie looks like interesting new territory for the 80-year-old machine that is Eastwood, somewhat stepping into other-worldly realms.

It stars Matt Damon as a man who has psychic abilities and is able to communicate with the deceased, which once saw him as an author and celebrity in paranormal communication. But as he tries to leave that life behind him, others who have looked death in the face seek him out as they pursue answers.

Aside from all of the troubles surrounding The Hobbit, the other franchise being affected by all of the issues that MGM has been going through is the James Bond franchise.

Back in April, we were informed that production on James Bond 23 was being put on hold indefinitely until issues surrounding the studio could be remedied. Now that indefiniteness is looking a little more infinite. According to AICN, the new James Bond is not on hold anymore, but now looks like the production has been completely killed off.
