The Program Pushed Ben Foster To The Limit


Ben Foster Stephen Frears

Foster transformed his entire physique to play Lance Armstrong in Stephen Frears' new biopic The Program. And Foster admits that he didn't know much about the cyclist beforehand. "I knew he was the greatest at one point, and I knew he was considered a liar," Foster says. "but I had no preconceptions. On one hand, he's a lying doper who tricked the world. On the other, he's a young man who faced cancer. It changes you. And when you go to war it changes you. That's what Lance did: he went to war with his body. That shifts your consciousness."

The Program was initially titled The Cycling Project

Foster was determined to tell Armstrong's story as accurately as possible, without judgement. "He's a smart man," Foster says. "He said, 'I can do some good with this,' and raised half a billion for cancer research! We just don't like him because he was Jesus Christ on a bicycle. We're mad he came back from the dead, saved the sick and then turned out to be full of s**t. And we're punishing him because he didn't apologise in the way we'd like."

Robin Wright Became A Mum Too Soon


Robin Wright Sean Penn Ben Foster

The 49-year-old actress gave birth to Dylan with her ex-husband Sean Penn when she was just 25, welcoming their son Hopper two years later in 1996. At the time she was happy to look after her family and let her actor spouse continue to work, but looking back she thinks things happened too soon in life.

"Way too young," she told Britain's Harper's Bazaar when asked about her thoughts of having children at that age. "I didn't know me! I'm living my life now. I've raised kids my whole life.

"Oh my God. (I'm discovering) so many things (now). So many things that I probably would have learned in my thirties had I not been a mom and a wife... I'm finally getting to me. You know? It's an essence, it's a feel thing."

The Finest Hours Review

Excellent

With its rousing, old-fashioned tone, this fact-based epic is properly thrilling and inspirational, a tale of heroism that almost seems too good to be true. But it's the astonishing story of a real sea rescue carried out by ordinary men who rose to the challenge. It's also expertly directed by Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm) to bring out subtle character detail amid the exhilarating action.

The events took place in a sleepy Massachusetts fishing town in the dead of winter 1952, where Bernie (Chris Pine) is an earnest Coast Guard sailor who has just agreed to marry his strong-willed sweetheart Miriam (Holliday Grainger). Then one night a fierce storm breaks an oil tanker in half just off the coast, and Bernie is sent by his aloof commander Daniel (Eric Bana) to lead a rescue mission. He takes his colleague Richard (Ben Foster) and two young crewmen (Kyle Gallner and John Magaro) with him, heading into the dangerous sea swells. Meanwhile on the tanker's still-floating stern section, engineer Ray (Casey Affleck) becomes the leader of a cantankerous 32-man crew, steering the wreckage toward the relative safety of a shoal. And in these conditions, the odds are in nobody's favour.

Unusually, despite pitch-black conditions with driving rain and swelling seas, the on-screen action is crisp and clear. Gillespie uses vivid effects and clever camerawork to keep the audience right in the thick of things, conveying a vivid sense of scale while detailing the connections between each string of events. And because we understand what's happening and who these people are, the set-pieces are literally breathtaking. This is partially due to the fact that these are normal people who are very easy to identify with, from Pine's inarticulate but tenacious sailor to Affleck's reluctant natural leader. Intriguingly, Grainger's Miriam is the film's feistiest character, a woman who simply can't sit still and wait for news.

Warcraft Is Coming: A Brief Snippet Of The Humans Vs Orcs Epic Is Unveiled [Footage]


Travis Fimmel Ben Foster Duncan Jones

War is coming. At least, that's what the first teaser for the upcoming 'Warcraft' film would have us believe. Don't get too excited though; this new trailer for the live-action epic gives virtually nothing away and is pretty much over in the blink of an eye.

WarcraftThe war is on! Humans and orcs battle in Azeroth

Never fear, though, because you won't have long to wait for the real trailer as it is set to arrive on Friday in all its glory (November 6th 2015). So far, all we know is that the film involves some long-haired, sword-wielding warriors riding giant eagles across sprawling, majestic seaside kingdoms, while being attacked by enormous, man-eating wolves in poor weather conditions and somehow finding themselves in possession of rather anachronistic weaponry. All of this you could've guessed if you are fan of the online role-playing game 'World Of Warcraft'.

The Program Review

Very Good

A whooshing pace and snappy dialogue help bring this true story to life, tracing the triumphant and scandalous career of cyclist Lance Armstrong. And the energetic approach helps bring out several layers in Armstrong's perspective, exploring why a top sportsman would cheat to win. It also features a steely performance from Ben Foster that captures Armstrong's physicality and personality, but not in the usual ways.

When he was 25, Armstrong (Foster) was already a star, but his career was cut short in 1996 by advanced testicular cancer. After recovering, he retrained himself as a long-distance cyclist and launched a global cancer charity, then went on to win seven Tour de France titles. His friend, Irish journalist David Walsh (Chris O'Dowd) noticed that his improvement was too good to be true, and continually challenged him to be honest about his work with controversial doctor Michele Ferari (Guillaume Canet). Armstrong defended his name in court, but years later the truth came out that throughout his career he had been systematically cheating with banned drugs and blood-cleansing processes. The truth came out in 2010, but he didn't admit the deception until an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2013.

Since this was so thoroughly reported in the media, and finely detailed in Alex Gibney's acclaimed documentary The Armstrong Lie, there aren't any surprises in this movie. And despite being based on Walsh's book Seven Deadly Sins, the film takes Armstrong's perspective, trying to get under his skin to reveal his motivation. John Hodge's screenplay is insightful, building some strong dramatic suspense along the way, and the film is sharply well-directed by Stephen Frears, a filmmaker better known for softer movies (like Philomena and The Queen). But he guides Foster to a strikingly physical performance that's sweaty and aggressive, and also darkly internalised. Stand-outs in the supporting cast include Jesse Plemons as a fellow cyclist haunted by his conscience and Denis Menochet as Armstrong's team manager.
