New arrivals in a theatre near you this weekend: Colin Farrell stars as a blood-sucking monster in the remake, Fright Night; the great warrior of the eighties returns in Conan The Barbarian; plus Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess try to make their relationship work over the years in the drama, One Day.
Interviewing actors and filmmakers can be a difficult job when you consider the odds that are stacked against you. Are they in a good mood? Have they done a lot of interviews today? Do they even feel like talking about their latest film right now? Those questions all make you wonder what will happen when you sit down with the next star, but then, not everyone is like Colin Farrell.
Happy 2010, everyone, and welcome to a brand new year at the movies. New this week in theatres, Ethan Hawke stars as a remorseful vampire in the action-horror hybrid, Daybreakers. Also in theatres, Michael Cera stars in the adaptation of C. D. Payne’s famed novel, Youth In Revolt; while Amy Adams and Matthew Goode lead the romantic comedy, Leap Year.
Earlier today the Toronto International Film Festival confirmed that Daybreakers, Ethan Hawke‘s latest film, had been chosen to screen during this year’s Midnight Madness.
The film, which was directed by Peter and Michael Spierig, is set in 2019 after a plague has turned most of the Earth’s population into vampires.
The fall slate of new television shows has been announced in Canada, and there are some interesting series making their debut. Read more for a quick peek at some of the most compelling shows coming to CTV, A channel, and Global Television.
Writer Stephenie Meyer made a bloody splash with her bestselling vampire series, Twilight, and this December the first book is set for its big screen debut with stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison.
Vampire movies may not be rare, but the good ones certainly are, and as a fan of the genre I have to admit that I had high hopes for 30 Days of Night to come in and shake things up a bit.
