Claire Foy: "The Girl In The Spider's Web"

23 September 2017 6:45 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to Sony Pictures, actress Claire Foy ("The Crown") will play 'Lisbeth Salander', the lead character in "The Girl in the Spider's Web", to be directed by Fede Alvarez ("Don't Breathe"), that will start shooting January 2018 in Berlin, targeting an October 19, 2018 release:

"...'Frans Balder', a computer scientist, returns to Sweden, abandoning a prestigious job with a 'Silicon Valley' company called 'Solifon', to take custody of his autistic son 'August'.

"Balder is informed by law enforcement he is in danger from the criminal organization 'Spider Society', but he ignores their warnings, preferring to focus on his neglected son.

"Meanwhile, 'Mikael Blomkvist' feels he is stuck in a rut. In the year since 'Millenium' magazine's scoop on 'The Section', the publication has stagnated and is in danger of losing creative control to outside investors.

"A former associate, 'Linus Brandell', relates Balder's tumultuous history, but Blomkvist is bored until Brandell mentions »

Claire Foy on Taming Corgis on the Set of The Crown: 'I'm No Dr. Doolittle'

22 September 2017 9:31 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

We already knew that the corgis starring in The Crown were talented – they have their own trailer for the new season, after all! But they really seem to have the acting thing down to a fine art.

And their skills are on full display in a certain scene coming up in season 2 of the Netflix drama, which People observed during a set visit earlier this year. As Queen Elizabeth, played by Claire Foy, and Jodi Balfour’s Jackie Kennedy wrap up a scene where they have an intimate, get-to-know-you chat, Foy’s character says, “Right, we’re going now.” And in take after take, »

It's Official: Rooney Mara Is Out as Lisbeth Salander and Claire Foy Is In

21 September 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you thought the American film adaptations of Stieg Larsson's addicting novels (known as the Millennium series) were long dead, think again. According to Deadline, The Crown's Claire Foy is the latest actress to take on the role of Lisbeth Salander, the sulky protagonist of the gripping mystery stories. But there's a catch: Foy is actually set to star in the film adaptation of The Girl in the Spider's Web, the fourth novel in the Millennium series that was written by David Lagercrantz rather than Larsson. If you're confused about the move, just know that this has pretty much nothing to do with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which hit theaters in 2011 (other than the recurring characters). Obviously, Rooney Mara is no longer our dark and twisty heroine, and additionally, visionary director David Fincher is not on board either. Instead, Don't Breathe director Fede Alvarez has signed on. »

Andrew Garfield And Claire Foy ‘Breathe’ Deep For History [Review]

21 September 2017 11:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Toronto – Imagine performing a scene without moving anything but your lips, eyes and maybe your neck.  And the neck can move, but just slightly. Everything else has to stay completely immobile.  That includes your hands and legs. No, you can’t even shift your weight an iota. Sounds easy, right? Test it out for a minute. Maybe five. Dare you to try 10 minutes. It’s O.K., we’ll wait.

Harder than you thought, wasn’t it?

Matt Damon to Receive BAFTA Britannia Award As He Enters Oscar Season With Two Bold, Divisive Roles

20 September 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Matt Damon is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and a superb actor. This fall audiences anticipate his return in two high-profile award-season movies. He plays a rather nasty character in “Suburbicon,” a film noir ’50s dramedy adapted from a Coen brothers script and directed by George Clooney, Damon’s old chum and “Oceans” co-star. And he’s a goofy sad sack in “Downsizing,” a future-world sci-fi comedy with an ecological message from Oscar perennial Alexander Payne, in which he becomes 5 inches tall to save the environment.

It makes perfect sense for BAFTA to present Damon with a well-deserved award — the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film — at the Britannia Awards October 27 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. After all, he won an Oscar in 1997 with buddy Ben Affleck for writing “Good Will Hunting,” and was nominated for his performances in that movie as well as “Invictus” and “The Martian, »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles announced on Wednesday that Matt Damon will be the recipient of the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film at this year’s ceremony.

The Crown has gone to the dogs.

The marketing geniuses behind the Netflix smash success series — which chronicles the reign of Queen Elizabeth II — released a new spoof video that’s almost better than the real deal, as it swaps out actors Claire Foy and Matt Smith and replaces them with Her Majesty’s favorite dogs: corgis.

The corgis star in a rework of one of the show’s most iconic scenes, where the Queen gets into a heated argument with her husband, Prince Philip, ahead of »

Juno Temple and Jon Bass ‘Meet Cute’ In Twisted New Short Film About Romance Gone Totally Awry — Watch

19 September 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nick (Jon Bass) would like to think he’s “endearing weird,” but the world seems to perceive him as “weird weird.” That’s tough enough, but when the feisty Dani (Juno Temple) is thrown into the mix, Nick’s non-endearing weirdness is pushed to some crazy ends.

In Ben Smith and Megan McDonnell’s “Meet Cute” (written by Smith and produced by Josh Thurston), what’s meant to be a low-key study date between the two adorably mismatched stars shifts and changes over the course of an afternoon, initially weird, then charming, then right back to weird weird. (Short version: Hey, it’s really easy to be confused for a serial killer.)

Bleecker Street has released a new trailer for the upcoming drama Breathe, which marks the directorial debut of Andy Serkis. Based on a true story, the film stars Andrew Garfield as Robin Cavendish, a young man who in 1958 contracted polio and became paralyzed from the neck down, requiring a respirator to breathe. At the time, mobility for patients on a respirator was non-existent, and we watch as Cavendish struggles to live through his new condition and as his wife, played by Claire Foy, pushes him to adapt and innovate according to his new situation.

‘Breathe’ New Trailer: Andrew Garfield is Looking to Earn Back-to-Back Best Actor Oscar Nominations

19 September 2017 5:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Andrew Garfield earned his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor last year for his work in Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge,” and he could find himself back in the race this year should “Breathe” catch on with audiences and voters. The movie co-star Claire Foy, who earned an Emmy nomination this year for her acclaimed work on Netflix’s “The Crown” and will next be seen as Lisbeth Salander in “The Girl With The Spider’s Web.” Putting these two appealing leads front and center is the movie’s best decision.

As Harvey Weinstein learned the hard way with “The Current War,” your traditional Oscar bait style movie isn’t going to play with pundits this year. So it remains to be seen how “Breathe” will weather a very competitive Oscar season, but it certainly looks like Andrew Garfield‘s performance will be one that’s hard to ignore.
