Question: How Much Does It Cost To Go To The Cinema?


Nicole Kidman

The cost of a visit to the cinema is beginning to put people off as the average price of the ticket, parking, food and drink continues to surge. New research finds that costs on top of tickets were worse for families and that central London remained the most expensive part of the country for cinema prices.

PaddingtonPaddington was a major hit for the British film industry in 2014, though prices continue to rise

46% of the 5,000 people questioned blamed costs for the reason for not going to the cinema. YouGov's Vidisha Gaglani said cinema faced challenges on "a number of fronts."

Fallon gets a decent amount of appreciation for his crazy outfit combination and startlingly long hair as he reminisces about his high school days, and goes into a scene set-up of Bayside High. However, a particularly prolonged applause went to Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris) as he made an appearance complete with wavy blonde hair and looking almost indistinguishable from his younger self some 25 years ago, proceeding to reel off the lyrics from the famous theme tune.

Awkward! Nicole Kidman Recalls Disastrous Date With Jimmy Fallon While On 'The Tonight Show'


Nicole Kidman Jimmy Fallon

First dates are usually pretty awkward, but one way to make them a little worse is to not even tell one of the participants that they're meant to be one a date! That’s kind of what happened when Nicole Kidman went round to Jimmy Fallon’s place over a decade ago, thinking she was on a date with the comedian. Instead it all meant for a hilariously awkward encounter that the actress would later recall while appearing on the ‘Tonight Show’.

Nicole KidmanJimmy Fallon appeared to be just not that into Nicole Kidman during their date.

Kidman was sitting on Fallon’s TV sofa to promote her latest movie Paddington, when the topic of conversation turned to the pair’s first and only prior meeting. Kidman encouraged the talk show host to tell his version of the encounter first, where he thought the actress was coming over to discuss a potential movie role.

'Paddington' Adapts A Classic For Today's Kids, But With Nicole Kidman's Evil Touch


Nicole Kidman Paul King

After a series of beloved books and cartoons, filmmakers had a big challenge to come up with a big screen version of the story of Paddington bear, combining animation and live-action for a romp akin to the '101 Dalmatians' or 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' movies. And the filmmakers confounded critics by coming up with something that's genuinely charming while adding elements more familiar to today's young audiences.

Paddington poster
Paddington returns in stunning live action

For the film 'Paddington', the main departure from the canon is the addition of a villain in the form of Nicole Kidman's snaky Millicent. She may get to do some 'Mission: Impossible' stunts and Cruella de Vil vamping, but Millicent's chief purpose in the movie is clearly to add some final-act excitement in a story that's otherwise adorable and warmly witty.

Paddington Review


Excellent

It's difficult not to go into a movie like this with a sense of dread, as the beloved children's book becomes a live-action movie with a digitally animated, eerily realistic-looking bear. Thankfully, the task of filmmaking was given to the inventive Paul King (of Mighty Boosh fame), who made the charmingly surreal 2009 comedy Bunny and the Bull and brings a refreshingly unexpected comical sensibility to liven up this film's family-friendly formula.

It starts in darkest Peru, where a young bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) has been raised by his aunt and uncle (Imelda Staunton and Michael Gambon), who learned about London from a British explorer. Now in need of a new home, the youngster heads across the sea and takes the name of Paddington Station when he meets the Brown family: over-cautious dad (Hugh Bonneville), over-curious mum (Sally Hawkins), sulking teen Judy (Madeleine Harris), inventive pre-teen Jonathan (Samuel Joslin) and feisty relative Mrs Bird (Julie Walters). As they help him find the explorer, he has a series of adventures, unaware that the taxidermist Millicent (Nicole Kidman) is on his trail, determined to add him to the species on exhibition at the Natural History Museum.

This Cruella De Vil-style subplot would be seriously annoying if King ever let it take over the movie, but it always remains secondary to Paddington's mayhem-causing behaviour and his bonding with the Browns. It also provides some genuine tension in a climactic action sequence in the museum. But most of the film is dedicated to Paddington's comically ridiculous antics, and Whishaw voices him with just the right mixture of curiosity and hapless mischief to make him irresistible.

Colin Firth Returns To Form With Taut Thriller 'Before I Go To Sleep'


Colin Firth Nicole Kidman

It is often said that a good actor is only as the direction that he or she are receiving, or the material from which they're reading. Colin Firth is certainly an impressive actor, though his finest performances - The King's Speech, A Single Man - read great on the page and both Tom Hooper and Tom Ford turned in excellent directorial efforts.

Before I Go To Sleep

The same can be said of Brighton Rock's Rowan Joffe, who directs an adaptation of S.J Watson's best-selling novel Before I Go To Sleep. It's the story of a woman (Nicole Kidman) who wakes up every day with no memory, as a result of a traumatic accident she suffered in her past. Terrifying truths begin to emerge to make her question everything she thinks she knows about herself, including her doctor (Mark Strong) and even her husband (Firth).

Before I Go To Sleep Review


Good

A clever premise can't help but grab the audience's attention as this mystery-thriller plays with ideas of identity and memory, but the simplistic filmmaking makes it feel like a cheat. Writer-director Rowan Joffe (2010's Brighton Rock remake) badly underestimates the audience, using melodrama and contrived storytelling to try to manipulate viewers' emotions. And it doesn't help that the leading lady can't move her face.

Nicole Kidman stars as Christine, who wakes up every morning thinking that she's 23. When she discovers Ben (Colin Firth) in her bed, she's almost as horrified as when she sees her 40-year-old face in the mirror. But Ben patiently explains who she is, that he's her husband and that an accident damaged her ability to make new long-term memories. When he leaves for work each day, she is contacted by Dr Nash (Mark Strong), who helps nudge her into the present. But all of this does little more than make Christine wonder whether anyone is telling the truth. As she digs deeper each day, she gets in touch with her friend Claire (Anne-Marie Duff), who offers some continuity. And by piecing clues together she begins to realise that there's a gap between what's really happening and what she thinks she remembers.

With elements of both Memento and 50 First Dates, this film is packed with tricky elements that add to the suspense, creating a creepy atmosphere that's surprisingly moving as seen through Christine's eyes. Even with her immobile face, Kidman's eyes are alert and emotive, strongly conveying Christine's yearning to understand the truth. Opposite her, the always terrific Duff has the film's best role simply because she seems to be who she claims to be. Meanwhile, Firth and Strong have a great time wrong-footing both Christine and the audience, or maybe they're just misunderstood. The fascinating premise forces us to sift through the clues ourselves to figure out what's going on.

'Before I Go To Sleep': Nicole Kidman Is An Amnesiac With A Mystery To Solve In Tense Thriller


Nicole Kidman Colin Firth Mark Strong

All sour memories of Nicole Kidman in Grace of Monaco are about to be forgotten as she gives an unforgettably unsettling performance in new thriller Before I Go To Sleep. Like 50 First Dates meets Memento, the movie focusses on a woman who wakes up each morning with a wiped memory due to her amnesia.

Kidman plays Christine Lucas, who is suffering from a complicated form of amnesia brought on by a terrifying incident that left her injured. Christine wakes up each day with no recollection of anything, despite keeping a video diary to remind herself.

It becomes apparent that no one can be trusted as her husband Ben (Colin Firth) is reluctant to tell her things about the past and her doctor (Mark Strong) seems to have ulterior motives. Christine learns that the only person who could have a chance of identifying her attacker is herself, if only she could remember what happened.

Paddington Bear Makes Debut In Funny New Trailer…Minus His Voice

Missing the lead actor in your movie four months before its release? No problem! As was evidently thought by director Paul King and the makers of the upcoming children's adaptation, Paddington. A new trailer has been released for the live action movie, which is based on Michael Bond's Paddington Bear creation, whilst neatly side-stepping the absence of a voice for the titular brown bear.

Unfortunately, when Paddington gets to Paddington Station, he has no idea where he is or how to even exit the place. After struggling with the various signs for a long while, he is eventually spotted by the kindly Brown family, who agree to take him in until he can find out the whereabouts Aunt Lucy's explorer friend. However, Paddington's life skills aren't up to scratch and he's about to learn that there's a lot more to life in London than he initially thought.

Before I Go to Sleep Trailer


Christine Lucas is suffering from a complicated form of amnesia whereby she cannot remember anything about her past, who she is, who her family are and the nature of the terrifying incident which left her that way. More still, each day she wakes up with no recollection of anything, despite having learnt plenty of information about herself before she went to sleep the day before. In a bid to recall all the lost information, she records a video diary day by day and soon learns that not everyone around her can be trusted. Her husband Ben is refusing to tell her certain things about her past, while her doctor, Dr. Nash, appears to have ulterior motives as he helps her to recover. It becomes more and more evident as the day presses on that something shockingly corrupt has occurred - and she's the only person who knows what it is.

'Before I Go To Sleep' is a gripping psychological thriller based on the acclaimed book of the same name by S.J. Watson. Starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong, it has been both directed and written by Rowan Joffe ('Brighton Rock', '28 Weeks Later', 'The American', 'Last Resort') and is due for cinematic release in the UK on September 5th 2014.

Kidman-Urban Duet Melts Hearts With "Amazing Grace" Performance At Children's Hospital


Nicole Kidman Keith Urban

No, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman aren’t headed for a divorce – in fact, they couldn’t be farther from the thought. In case you needed further proof that the pair are adorable and still in love, the couple visited a children’s hospital in Australia on Friday and sang a heartwarming duet of Amazing Grace.

Urban, a true man of country, brought his guitar on their visit to Monash Children’s Hospital, while Kidman showed off her impressive pipes. She joined in with her husband, making it into a rather endearling duet. By the end of the song, the musical pair had the entire room singing along.

'Grace Of Monaco': The Curse Of The Princess Biopic


Nicole Kidman

After 2013's disastrous biopic Diana, starring Naomi Watts, it was something of a shock that filmmaker Olivier Dahan soldiered on to make Grace of Monaco, starring Watt's best pal Nicole Kidman. Reviews for both films were uniformly awful, so at least the actresses will have something to laugh about over dinner.

Nicole Kidman Grace of MonacoNicole Kidman [L] as Grace Kelly in 'Grace of Monaco'

The odd thing is that both Diana and Grace of Monaco were made by European filmmakers who have strong pedigrees. Diana was directed by German filmmaker Oliver Hirschbiegel, whose Downfall (2004) is considered one of the finest movies ever made about the collapse of Nazi rule. Meanwhile, Dahan directed Marion Cotillard to an Oscar in the Edith Piaf biopic La Vie en Rose (2007).

Grace Of Monaco Review


OK

While the tone is all wrong, this fantastical version of a momentous year in the life of Grace Kelly is still entertaining, and not just unintentionally. Lavishly designed and heavily fictionalised, the film is anchored by a solid movie-star performance from Nicole Kidman that may miss Kelly's persona but captures an intriguing inner life.

It's set in 1961, five years after Grace (Kidman) left her Oscar-winning career to marry Monaco's Prince Rainier (Tim Roth). Now with two kids, she is still struggling to define her role as a foreign-born princess while considering a return to Hollywood. Meanwhile, France is ominously threatening Monaco with embargoes and more if Rainier doesn't start taxing his population and paying the money to France. Taking advice from her priest friend Tucker (Frank Langella), Grace decides to devote herself to her husband to help solve the crisis. This will require training with an etiquette guru (Derek Jacobi) as well as fending off the in-laws (Geraldine Somerville and Nicholas Farrell). And it may mean that she'll never return to the movies.

The script by producer Arash Amel presents each of Grace's decisions in the most simplistic melodramatic light, as director Olivier Dahan cuts to yet another extreme close-up of Kidman's weeping eyes. The corny approach undermines any chance at real drama, as the filmmakers keep trying to crank up suspense (someone is leaking secrets!) or emotion (the people need a champion!) without building up any meaningful substance. This makes most of the plotting feel rather laughably silly, centred around a painfully dull series of political negotiations.
