Baby Driver is in theaters now and getting exceptional reviews:

An awe-inspiring piece of filmmaking from Edgar Wright that plays out as a musical through the lens of an action thriller. Sweet, funny and utterly original — you won’t see a film like it this year. Read Full Review – Terri White of Empire

Will resonate most with audiences that skew young, hip, and, like its helmer and its hero (the latter played by baby-faced “The Fault in Our Stars” star Ansel Elgort), more than a little obsessive. Read Full ReviewPeter Debruge of Variety

This is the first thriller I’ve seen in a long time that feels handmade. Read Full Review – David Edelstein of Vulture

Ben-Hur Director: “Our Movie Is Different”

timur

Jason Rothenberg from The Hollywood Reporter sat down with Ben Hur director Timur Bekmambetov. Bekmambetov is known for being the filmmaker behind Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and the upcoming film Ben Hur, one would not expect him to live in the former home of Walt Disney. After all, he made his big break from Night Watch, a R-rated horror fantasy that became Russia’s highest grossing film in 2004. Walking into his home, it is filled with sketches of animated characters and a customized Ping-Pong table featuring Mickey Mouse figurines. “He was a visionary man. He invented a whole world,” says Bekmambetov, 55, of Disney.

Bekmambetov is trying to use the creative inspiration from Disney in his most expensive film to date, Ben Hur, Paramount and MGM’s nearly $100 million-budget adaptation of Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel. And he hopes to escape the shadow from the 1959 film adaptation of Ben Hur, which grossed ten times its $15 million budget. Bekmambetov has a busy life, along with directing, he is married to costume designer Varvara Avdyushko and has two daughters.

Bekmambetov admits that taking on this iconic story was intimidating. It is a great story that has a lot of history of being a great fictional version of a biblical story. It is very rare that you have material that is centered on a specific message, along with epic naval battles and chariot races. Although, Bekmambetov was up to the challenge and wanted to step up when no one else would. The 1959 film has a different message than the book. The book focused on forgiveness, and the 1959 film was based on revenge and miracles. And Bekmambetov is going down a different path as well, using his creative inspiration from Disney to create his own legacy. See Bekmambetov’s full quote below.

“It was scary. It’s a great, great book. It’s very unique because it’s a fictional version of the biblical story. It’s very rare when you have material with a message. And at the same time, it’s very entertaining because of the unbelievable naval battles and chariot races. But I like to take a risk and do something nobody wants to try. The 1959 movie is not the same as the book, which has a very different message. The book was written about forgiveness, and the movie they made in 1959 — a great movie — it’s about revenge and miracles. Our movie is different.”

Ben Hur hits theatres August 19, lets see if Bekmambetov can create magic with his adaptation.

Based on the critically acclaimed, bestselling novel by Jojo Moyers  New Line Cinema’s and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ “Me Before You” stars Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones” series), under the direction of Thea Sharrock, making her feature film directorial debut.

Oftentimes you find love where you least expect it. Sometimes it takes you where you never expected to go…

Louisa “Lou” Clark (Clarke) lives in a quaint town in the English countryside. With no clear direction in her life, the quirky and creative 26-year-old goes from one job to the next in order to help her tight-knit family make ends meet. Her normally cheery outlook is put to the test, however, when she faces her newest career challenge.  Taking a joy at the local “castle’, she becomes caregiver an companion to Will Traynor (Claflin), a wealthy young banker who became wheelchair bound in an accident two years prior, and whose whole world changed dramatically in the blink of an eye.  No longer the adventurous soul he once was, the now cynical Will has all but given up.  That is until Lou determines to show him that life is worth living.  Embarking together on a series of adventures, both Lou and Will get more than they bargained for, and find their lives-and hearts-changing in ways neither one could have imagines.

The film also stars Charles Dance (“The Imitation Game”), Jenna Coleman (“Dr. Who”), Matthew Lewis )the “Harry Potter” films), Vanessa Kirby, (“About Time”), Stephen Peacocke (“Hercules”), Brendan Coyle (“Downtown Abbey”) and Oscar nominee Janet McTeer (“Albert Nobbs”, “Tumbleweeds”).
