  1. Um, okay. I haven't seen this film, but based on what I've heard, it sounds like a middle-of-the-road, basically tasteful historical-nostalgic movie with a bit of uplift to it (like, seriously, the trailer alone can get me teary-eyed at times). So why would the distributor give it a potentially off-putting tagline like THIS? Oh well, at least it's evidence that there's one film out there that ISN'T going out of its way to look for "Passion dollars". (Or, hmmm, maybe it IS, and this is its clumsy effort to do so.) BTW, the Wikipedia entry on Lionel Logue, the Australian speech therapist played by Geoffrey Rush, says the Duke of York hired him in 1925, eleven years BEFORE he became King of England. (And nobody was EXPECTING the Duke of York to become King of England at that point because nobody expected his older brother to abdicate within months of getting the throne.) So it looks like the movie -- which shows the Queen telling Logue her husband is "the King" when she hires him -- has played around with the chronology a bit.
  2. Links to our threads on the stage production and earlier, non-musical movie adaptations of this story. - - - 'King's Speech' Helmer Tom Hooper Closing On 'Les Miserables' As Next Pic BREAKING: Looks like Universal Pictures has won the battle for the next film to be directed by Oscar-winning The King’s Speech helmer Tom Hooper. The dealmaking has started for Hooper to direct Les Miserables, a full-blown musical adaptation of the Cameron Mackintosh-produced perennial stage hit. This is the first film he's begun negotiations on since winning the Oscar, but insiders in Hooper's camp stopped short of saying it would definitively be his next film. I hear that's how it will work out. . . . Mike Fleming, Deadline.com, March 24
  3. Hmm this seems to be attempting to enthuse Americans about football (as it is properly called) day. First the penalty shoot out Now this Michael Sheen playing Brian Clough during his time at Leeds Utd. I've never supported a team Clough managed, but Leeds are my team (parents reside there), and round here (halfway between Derby and Nottingham - home of his two greatest triumphs) he is a legend. Oh and did I mention that he's being played by Michael Sheen? Matt
