Kate Winslet Re-Enacts THAT 'Titanic' Scene With Bear Grylls On Survivalist TV Show


Kate Winslet Bear Grylls

Kate Winslet has channelled the role that brought her to superstardom while taking part in a new TV show with Bear Grylls. Standing on the side of a Welsh cliff held up only by ropes and staring straight down vertically, the British actress couldn’t resist re-creating THAT famous scene from Titanic with Jack and Rose at the front of the ship.

“Jack, I feel like I’m flying!” she cried out, temporarily releasing her harnesses to throw her arms out to the side while being guided down a sheer mountain face in Snowdonia, Wales. The noted explorer reciprocated with impeccable timing, shouting back “Kate, do you trust me?”

Steve Jobs - First Look Trailer


Steve Jobs was an entrepreneur from the day of his birth and became one of the biggest technology pioneers the world has ever seen. Without any prior knowledge of programming, engineering or, indeed, any technical/computing experience of any kind, he set out to launch a computer with bucket loads of promise - all with the help and expertise of his friend Steve Wozniak. Little did they know of the tumultuous times that lay ahead, of how the resulting business would shape and damage Jobs' social and family life, and indeed his health.

'Far From The Madding Crowd' Cements Matthias Schoenaerts As A Leading Man


Matthias Schoenaerts Carey Mulligan Kate Winslet Dakota Johnson Eddie Redmayne

This week's release of 'Far From the Madding Crowd' is the third period film this year with Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts in the romantic leading-man role. Before starring opposite Carey Mulligan in the 1870s, he wooed Michelle Williams in the 1930s in 'Suite Francaise' and Kate Winslet in the 17th century in 'A Little Chaos'. For an actor who got his start in the Oscar-nominated 'Bullhead', then played a street fighter in 'Rust & Bone', these costume dramas must feel like a big change of pace.

There's also the fact that his character in 'Far From the Madding Crowd' is a sheep farmer, so there was a lot to learn. "I had to go to boot camp," he laughs. "Shaving, washing, everything, just so I can pretend, make it look like I know what I'm doing."

Kate Winslet Sacrifices Personal Hygiene In The Name Of Film


Kate Winslet Alan Rickman

Kate Winslet might be an actress of the most esteemed calibre, but that doesn't mean it's plain sailing every time. When she was selected to star in Alan Rickman's latest directorial effort 'A Little Chaos', adapting to the role had its challenges.

Kate Winslet in 'A Little Chaos'Kate Winslet reveals gardening left her with constantly filthy hands

All actors make a lot of sacrifices in the name of cinema and Kate Winslet is no exception. The film that she is most known for was particularly stunt heavy (1997's 'Titanic'), but with her latest flick she would be sacrificing more in the way of her daily comfort. Though, at least it was only over a period of eight weeks.

Alan Rickman Reveals The Challenges And Joys Of Directing 'A Little Chaos'


Alan Rickman Kate Winslet Stanley Tucci

It's been a long time since Alan Rickman made his directorial debut back in 1997, and so returning to the role (alongside acting in a major role as well) in 'A Little Chaos' presented a lot of challenges, surprises and, indeed, pleasures for the star.

He was at the helm of 1997 drama 'The Winter Guest' but hasn't approached the director's chair since. It's safe to say that coming back into it on a film of this scale, such is the visually stunning 'A Little Chaos', while also portraying the formidable King Louis XIV was a lot of hard work. Though Rickman admits that his two jobs had their similarities.

'A Little Chaos' Brings British Humour To A French Tale


Kate Winslet Alan Rickman

The new period drama 'A Little Chaos' may be set in France in the 17th century, but its filmmakers never intended it to be a historical tale. Not only is it essentially a comedy, but it was shot in England with a predominately British cast.

A Little Chaos Review


Excellent

Audiences looking for a French historical costume drama should look elsewhere, but those who enjoy British period comedies will love it. With a pointed dash of history and politics, this is a silly movie about social status, and it's so well written and played that only cynics won't have a lot of fun with it. Thankfully, the talent both in front of and behind the camera keep the focus on the lively characters, which makes it engaging on a deeper level than expected.

The fictional story is set around real events in 1682 France, as King Louis XIV (Alan Rickman) was planning to move his court from Paris to Versailles, a vast palace still under construction. The final project there is the expansive garden, which landscaper Andre (Matthias Schoenaerts) has to complete on deadline and under budget. And everyone is shocked when he hires the little-known Sabine (Kate Winslet) to build an outdoor ballroom and fountain. But he has been smitten with her skill and passion for gardening, and there's also a gently gurgling romantic spark between them as well. The problem is that his high-society wife (Helen McCrory) notices this and sets out to sabotage Sabine's work.

There's not much here that's historically accurate, from the frankly outrageous costumes to the English filming locations and dialogue that buzzes with specifically British humour. But it's so breezy and snappy that all we can do is sit back and enjoy it for what it is. Those who do so may even find some underlying resonance in the discussions of order and chaos in landscape design, as well as the way honesty is like a blast of fresh air in a world constrained by status. Indeed, the film's most memorable scene is a gorgeously written and played chance encounter between Sabine and the King in which they initially don't know who the other is.

Insurgent Review


Very Good

A sharp improvement on the original, this second entry in The Divergent Series has a much stronger sense of its premise and characters, which makes it much more exciting to watch. Where Divergent felt gimmicky and a bit shallow, this chapter pushes the characters much deeper, giving the actors a chance to bring them more engagingly to life, which makes the odd set-up more involving as well.

It picks up immediately where the first film ended, with Tris (Shailene Woodley) escaping from post-apocalyptic, segmented-society Chicago with her boyfriend Four (Theo James), her brother Caleb (Ansel Elgort) and their shifty cohort Peter (Miles Teller). Hiding out in the Amity agricultural community, they know that Erudite leader Janine (Kate Winslet) has sent her goons (Jai Courtney and Mekhi Phifer) to find them. Actually, she needs a divergent to open an artefact from the pre-war days so she can rid Chicago of pesky divergents forever. When their location is discovered, Tris and pals head back into the city, teaming up with factionless leader Joanna (Naomi Watts) and getting help from the head of Candor (Daniel Dae Kim) before going to Erudite to face Janine.

The story has a strong push to it, driving these rebels ever closer to a confrontation with their nasty nemesis, and their journey is fraught with surprise wrinkles, vicious battles and some mind-bending imagery. In fact, there are so many dreams, flashbacks and computer simulations that it's not always clear if what's on screen is actually happening or not. But it all looks so cool that we hang on to discover where it'll go next, so the two hours passes briskly, and sometimes breathlessly. The film looks terrific, as director Robert Schwentke keeps the focus on the characters while creating some amazing effects around them, especially in the simulation sequences.

The Divergent Series: Insurgent Trailer


Following on from the events of 'Divergent', the mysterious government has discovered a magical maguffin which had the power to create the idyllic future they have always hoped to fulfil. The only catch, is that it requires a Divergent in order to activate it. As the government begins testing any and all Divergents they can find, Tris (Shailene Woodley) is already on the run, and meets up with an army of secret, hidden Divergents. When it is revealed that she may be the only one to truly activate the maguffin, the Divergents rise up as an Insurgency, and take the fight to the government that has oppressed them for too long.

Divergent Review


Good

Teens tackle yet another dystopian future in this well-made but derivative franchise-launcher. Filmmaker Neil Burger is more interested in whizzy visuals and a thorny plot to pay much attention to the characters or larger underlying themes, which leaves the film feeling eerily superficial. So while the film is relatively entertaining, it ultimately feels rather pointless.

The story's set after a war has reduced Chicago to a walled-in enclave of people divided into five stabilising factions: charitable Abnegation, peaceful Amity, honest Candor, defending Dauntless and brainy Erudite. Tris (Shailene Woodley) was born to parents (Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn) who are leaders in Abnegation, but when time comes for her to select her own path she discovers that she's Divergent, a cross-faction state that threatens those in power. So she chooses to join Dauntless, entering intense physical training under the tutelage of sexy hunk Four (Theo James) and harsh hunk Eric (Jai Courtney). then Dauntless' soldiers get caught up in a power struggle as Erudite leader Jeanine (Kate Winslet) plots to take governmental responsibilities from Abnegation.

All of this scene-setting takes about half of the film's running time, and it's frankly not very exciting. Burger makes sure it looks fantastic, with seamless visual effects, impressive stunt work and flashy action sequences, but the character drama takes longer to kick off. And there's also the problem that it essentially feels like a cross between The Hunger Games and Harry Potter as an unusually gifted teen takes on a controlling society.

Lorde, Brad Pitt And Other Celebrities Who Say No To Photoshop

Labor Day Review


Good

With one of Kate Winslet's most layered, resonant performances, this film is definitely worth a look, even though the indulgent filmmaking style pushes it perilously close to Nicholas Sparks-style sappiness. Clearly, writer-director Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) is shifting gears as a filmmaker, but the movie is in dire need of just a hint of his usual jagged wit.

It's set in 1980s New Hampshire, as the agoraphobic Adele (Kate Winslet) is struggling to raise her sensitive teen son Henry (Gattlin Griffith) on her own after her husband (Clark Gregg) left. Then one night escaped convict Frank (Josh Brolin) arrives at their house in need of a place to hide. The next day, Frank offers to help with some repairs on the house. He also notices that Henry needs to learn how to throw a baseball. And that Adele needs some affection. So over the long Labor Day Weekend, he becomes the badly needed man of the house. Then when a neighbour (J.K. Simmons) and a cop (James Van Der Beek) start snooping, they make a plan to run for the Canadian border.

Instead of a dark, menacing edge, Reitman washes the film in sun-dappled earnestness, ramping up the soapy emotions rather than the grittier issues these people so badly need to deal with. This reaches a low point when Frank teaches Adele how to bake a peach pie in a scene reminiscent of the lusty pot-spinning sequence in Ghost: laughably ridiculous. Fortunately, Winslet and Brolin generate some uneasy chemistry, and Griffith is a fine young actor in a very difficult role. Together, they pull the film back from the sudsy brink just in time for a genuinely tense final sequence.

Kate Winslet Or Shailene Woodley? Who Was Best Dressed At 'Divergent' Premiere?


Shailene Woodley Kate Winslet Ashley Judd Ellie Goulding Theo James Kiernan Shipka

With a cast like that of new blockbuster Divergent it’s not a surprise that the movie’s premiere was packed with stylish stars.

Kate Winslet's Son Bear Blaze,and Other Bizarre Celebrity Baby Names


Kate Winslet Bob Geldof Pixie Geldof Gwen Stefani Gavin Rossdale Gwyneth Paltrow Beyonce Knowles Chris Martin Jay Z

Children of celebrities never have to go to normal schools where the other children will make fun of their wacky names, which means that the stars can go wild when naming their pampered offspring. There must be schools in Beverly Hills teaming with Donatello Zeuses and Princess Bananaramas. 

You don’t come across many Janes or Johns in the celeb baby world, but funnily there seems to be a few Bears going around at the moment. Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone both have sons called Bear, although to set mini Winslet apart his middle name is Blaze, as a reminder of the house fire that his parents first met in. Romantic.  As a side note, Winslet's husband changed his own name to Ned RocknRoll, so we're not surprised that the couple have chosen a name that is a little less out of the ordinary.

Kate Winslet Shines As A Pie-Baking Tortured Soul In "Labor Day"


Kate Winslet Josh Brolin

The Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin starrer Labor Day made the rounds at festivals last year and now that it’s finally making it to the cinema, critics have a lot to say – unfortunately, the reviews aren’t all glowing. The film centers on a pregnant divorced mother (it gets complicated from the beginning) who gets taken hostage (more or less) by an escaped criminal (Josh Brolin). As they live and bake pies together for three whole days, both Adele (Winslet) and her 13-year-old son Henry (Gattlin Griffith) gradually develop different kinds of affection for Frank, at one point even making plans to flee to Canada.

Kate Winslet, Revolutionary Road Premiere
Winslet has emerged as the obvious star in Labor Day.

Most critics find the movie’s unlikely romance highly unbelievable, like the NY Times’ Stephen Holden describes it as “designed for the crowd that devours Nicholas Sparks’s romantic daydreams. If it’s a hit, it could generate an uptick in prison correspondence from lonely women to roughnecks behind bars.”

Review Round-Up: 'Labor Day' Is Oversentimental But Hugely Enjoyable If One Suspends Disbelief


Kate Winslet Josh Brolin Tobey Maguire

Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet star in Labor Day, an unconventional romance in which Adele (Winslet) a lonely single mother, and her son Henry (Gattlin Griffith), give a wounded man a lift. The man, Frank, is in fact an escaped convict who places Adele in a difficult position when the police begin to ransack her small southern town in order to find him. Jason Reitman (Juno) has directed and adapted Labor Day from Joyce Maynard's 2013 novel of the same name.

Critical response to the film has been mixed with some critics finding the film underwhelming whilst others highly praise its subtleties. Most reviews comment on the oversentimental focus of the film, as embodied by Stephen Holden's comments in The New York Times, in which he states: "Labor Day seems designed for the crowd that devours Nicholas Sparks' romantic daydreams."

"You hear horror stories where you think, 'God, who's looking after these people and why does it seem like they're losing their way?'" Winslet reportedly said (via the Huffington Post). "I mean, you think about someone like Miley Cyrus, and I said to my daughter the other day, 'I'm this close to opening my mouth about what's going on with that girl.' Who is actually saying, 'Stop for a second. What do you want, who are you?'"
