‘Darkest Hour,’ ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and More Costumes Take Viewers on a Journey

‘Darkest Hour,’ ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and More Costumes Take Viewers on a Journey
In any given movie, costumes are about evolution: As a character’s story is told, so do her clothes evolve — or de-evolve — in tandem. And the journeys this year’s Oscar nominees for costume design have taken them in are both familiar and entirely unique.

Jacqueline Durran holds two slots in this year’s set of five nominees, and couldn’t have worked on two more different films. “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action retelling of the 1991 Disney animated classic, and arguably Durran had it easy: the audience knew what to expect from the signature outfits. That meant starting out with Belle (Emma Watson) in her 18th century French country girl uniform: a blue dress with practical pockets and bloomers. Once inside the castle, audiences would want to see her in the tulle, satin and taffeta yellow dress she waltzes in with the Beast (Dan Stevens). But Durran considered things a step further: any outfits in the

Second Opinion – The Shape of Water (2017)

The Shape of Water, 2017.

Directed by Guillermo del Toro.

Starring Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Octavia Spencer, Doug Jones and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Synopsis:

Set in cold-war era Baltimore, The Shape of Water focuses on an isolated, mute woman named Elisa (Sally Hawkins), who works as a janitor at a confidential government facility. For the most part, Elisa’s existence is depressingly mundane and deeply unfulfilling. She lives in a crummy apparent, has no family to speak of and repeats the same humdrum routine everyday. All of this changes however, when a tightly-wound government agent (Michael Shannon) delivers a new ”asset” to the lab, one that is mysteriously encased within a sturdy water container. Although the project is initially shrouded in secrecy, Elisa’s curiosity soon gets the better of her and she discovers that the resident of the tank is actually an amphibious humanoid (played by Doug Jones). A series of clandestine encounters follow,

Watch Dan Stevens Levitate A Malted Milk Ball On The Late Late Show

Dan Stevens doesn't just play a mutant on television, he's kind of one in real life! The actor stopped by The Late Late Show With James Corden to show his unique talent off, which if you didn't read the headline is that he can levitate malted milk balls. I won't spoil you on how he does it before the video, but I will say I was impressed even though I wasn't expecting him to do that! Check it out below:

‘Permission’ Review: An Indecent Proposal

The new film Permission, now open in very limited release, presents a very interesting proposition. A 30-something couple, played by Rebecca Hall and Dan Stevens, are madly in love, and have been since college. In fact, they are sweethearts and have each only been with the other, sexually. One night, their friends challenge that love by asking how they know if their love is real if they've never been with anyone else.

This forces Anna (Hall) and Will (Stevens) to question their feelings, and they each decide to go out and seek out other lovers, as they believe that their love is strong enough to survive the "hall pass." Anna quickly meets and hooks up with Dane (Francois Arnaud), a musician, and Will meets Lydia (Gina Gershon), a wealthy divorcee. These trysts begin adding pressure to the once-solid relationship and starts to create rifts that could become insurmountable. In the end,

Film Review: ‘Permission’

Film Review: ‘Permission’
Grab a stopwatch. Brian Crano’s “Permission” ticks off with a 25-second sex scene where longtime couple Anna (Rebecca Hall) and Will (Dan Stevens) start, finish, and look for the remote. After a decade together, even their whippet looks bored. Yet, the Manhattan couple is in love — truly and deeply, if not madly — and tonight, on Anna’s 30th birthday, Will intends to propose. Until Will’s carpentry partner Reece (Morgan Spector), who also dates Anna’s brother Hale (David Joseph Craig), reminds the two that when they were losing their virginity to each other, he was shagging two congressmen at once. When the over-confident pair eggs each other on to have an affair, all four lovers realize their contentment is masking a rumbling hunger for more. “Permission” is a small story made with big performances from leads Stevens and Hall, and while it hasn’t gotten the promotional push for audiences to pay attention, people lucky enough

Review: ‘Permission’ Explores the Complexities and Contradictions of Modern Love

Is this person “the one”?

Until relatively recently, this wasn’t a question that was often asked in Western society, at least not aloud. For centuries, marriages took place for a host of reasons unrelated to mutual affection. Financial security, political power, the approval of parents or adherence to a culture wedded to a Rockwellian vision of the nuclear family—the list of motivating factors runs long. However, once modernity undid traditional marital and familial structures to emphasize individual agency and sexual freedom, the new social landscape became—or at least gave the impression of having become—one of liberating possibility. Today, one could theoretically date anyone one wanted and pursue any form of “relationship” on the spectrum between “single” and “together.” The issue that arises from this state of affairs is an existential one, since with endless possibility comes an endless number of choices. If self-determination is the buzzword

Dan Stevens stars as David Haller, who lived in a mental institution until he discovered that what he thought was schizophrenia may in fact be advanced mental powers. As he learned more about his abilities he was also forced to confront Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), who at first seemed to be the memory of a close friend but turned out to be something far more sinister.

'Permission': Film Review

It becomes obvious from the opening scene that the central characters in Brian Cano's romantic dramedy Permission have relationship issues. We see longtime couple Anna (Rebecca Hall) and Will (Dan Stevens) engaging in some missionary-style, rudimentary sex that ends all too quickly. As soon as it's over, Will turns over and Anna asks what must surely be a recurring question: "Where's the remote?"

Permission is the latest cinematic attempt to explore the issue of monogamy in relationships. Unlike so many previous films that exploited the topic for ribald comedy, this effort adopts a more serious, at times even mournful tone....

‘Legion’ Season 2 Premiere Date Set for Spring

Last year, Noah Hawley introduced us to a new kind of superhero in FX's Legion. While David Haller (Dan Stevens) is technically (per the comics) the son of Professor Xavier, Legion in no way seems connected to any X-Men universe we know in television or movies so far. There's also a possibility that in Season 2 the show may introduce someone else as David's father, completely ignoring the comics. But the most fascinating thing is that it doesn't matter -- Legion is the rare "superhero" show that isn't interested in superheroics or comic pedigree. Most …

David Haller Returns In First Look At Legion Season 2

The mind-bending debut season of Legion ended with a classic Marvel-esque post-credits scene which left us with a giant cliffhanger: Dan StevensDavid Haller was captured by a weird floating ball. What was happening to him and would he get back to his friends at the Summerland mutant retreat?

Well, thanks to this short first look at Legion season 2, we at least know the answer to the second part of that question. The five second trailer, taken from FX’s sizzle reel for their upcoming shows, sees David with the likes of his girlfriend Syd (Rachel Keeler), Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris) and Cary (Bill Irwin). Which means he must get out of his weird prison and reunite with them at some point.

Despite escaping, though, David’s troubles are far from over. He’s still a mutant who can’t control his very dangerous powers and is being hunted down by anti-mutant government agents.
