We have some info to share about Woody Allen’s upcoming film Magic in the Moonlight; it’s a romantic comedy about an Englishman (Colin Firth) brought in to expose a phony mystic (Emma Stone), only to end up falling for her. The film is set in the south of France in the 1920s against a backdrop of wealthy mansions, the Côte d’Azur, jazz joints and fashionable spots for the wealthy of the Jazz Age. Marcia Gay Harden will play Stone’s mother and co-conspirator.
Allen says he had the idea for “ages” but it only recently came together when he decided to set it in the south of France in the 1920s rather than the present day. He loves that Jazz age. I’ve enjoyed his more recent movies of the past few years (Match Point, Whatever Works, Midnight in Paris, Blue Jasmine) so I will no doubt be checking this one out with great optimism.
Magic in the Moonlight opens July 25th. Allen can be seen acting in Fading Gigolo with its writer/director/co-star John Turturro.
Below is the first teaser trailer for Paddington in which we get to see the young bear in his first life action movie. The story follows the bear (voiced by Colin Firth) who is lost at Paddington Station in London, taken in by a kind family, and then sets out in search of an explorer who inspired his aunt years before.
The film also stars Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, and Nicole Kidman.
Paddington opens December 12th, check out the trailer below with the very long synopsis:
Here is the first full trailer for Gambit, a remake of the 1966 film starring Michael Caine as a cat burglar who recruits a showgirl played by Shirley MacLaine to help him heist a priceless antiquity. This update was written by Joel and Ethan Coen (The Ladykillers, True Grit) and stars Colin Firth as a British art curator who enlists a Texas Rodeo Queen (Cameron Diaz) to help him con England’s richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar (Alan Rickman).
It’s nice to see Rickman in a comedic role after so many Potter movies; by the looks of things he just might steal the show in this one. The movie also stars Stanley Tucci and Cloris Leachman. Gambit will be released on November 21st in the UK and in early 2013 in North America.

Tom Hooper’s film The King’s Speech won top prize at the Toronto Film Festival, and was met with praise at Telluride. We have the trailer for you and it’s great. Colin Firth as King George VI is obviously a safe bet (for now) for an Oscar nomination, of course Geoffrey Rush stands a similar chance as well, and he’s always great isn’t he? The film looks great and should be one to watch out for. The King’s Speech opens in theaters on November 24.
The film is based on the true story of the Queen of England’s father and his remarkable friendship with maverick Australian speech therapist Lionel Logue. The King’s Speech stars Academy Award nominee Colin Firth as King George VI, who unexpectedly becomes King when his brother Edward abdicates the throne. Academy Award Winner Geoffrey Rush stars as Logue, the man who helps the King find a voice with which to lead the nation into war.
