    Albert Finney, ‘Tom Jones’ Star Nominated for Five Oscars, Dies at 82
    Albert Finney, one of the leading actors of the postwar period, has died after a short illness. He was 82.

    The robust British actor began as a stage actor before transitioning to film. With his gravely voice and rumbling stare he brought an intense realism to his work, rising to fame in such 1960s classics as “Saturday Night and Sunday Morning” and “Tom Jones.” He later memorably played Agatha Christie’s legendary sleuth Hercule Poirot in “Murder on the Orient Express” and impressed critics and audiences with towering performances in “The Dresser” and “Under the Volcano.” Finney was nominated for five Oscars but never won the prize.

    In 1963, Finney played the foundling hero in Tony Richardson’s Oscar best picture winner “Tom Jones.” The role made Finney an international movie star and earned him the first of four best actor Oscar nominations. A year earlier, Finney had turned down the title

    'Lego Movie 2' and 'What Men Want' To Lead Weekend Newcomers

    'Lego Movie 2' and 'What Men Want' To Lead Weekend Newcomers
    Following last weekend's poor showing at the domestic box office, February gets underway in earnest this weekend with four new releases including The Lego Movie 2 and What Men Want, both of which are looking at strong starts. Additionally, Lionsgate release of Summit's Cold Pursuit and Orion's The Prodigy will hope for solid starts, given their budgets, in the high single digits as all four new releases hope to be the top four films on the weekend box office chart. Looking at an easy #1 finish is Warner Bros.'s release of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, which will open in over 4,300 locations * including showings in 2D, 3D, IMAX, Dbox and more * with the studio anticipating a debut anywhere from $50-55 million. This projection mostly jibes with what we're seeing, with IMDb page view data trending similar to, or out-performing, comp titles such as Kung Fu Panda 3 and Hotel Transylvania 2.

    • Deadline
    Oscar winner Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) and Anthony Peckham (Invictus) have boarded The President Is Missing, the drama series adaptation of the novel by President Bill Clinton and James Patterson. McQuarrie will executive produce the project, currently in development, with Heather McQuarrie and the book’s authors. Peckham will also executive produce and write the adaptation.

    In The President is Missing, a powerless and politically aimless Vice President unexpectedly becomes President halfway into his administration’s first term, despite his every wish to the contrary. He walks right into a secret, world-threatening crisis, both inside and outside the White House. Attacked by both friends and enemies alike, with scandal and conspiracy swirling around him, he is confronted with a terrible choice: keep his head down, toe the party line and survive, or act on his stubborn, late-developing conscience and take a stand.

    Berlin Film Review: ‘By the Grace of God’

    There’s of-the-moment cinema and then there’s on-the-moment cinema, ripped so freshly from the headlines that the filmmaking still bears a few ink smudges. An engrossing, whole-hearted dramatization of the Catholic Church sexual abuse scandal behind the ongoing trial of Philippe Barbarin, the Archbishop of Lyon, Fran?ois Ozon’s “By the Grace of God” doesn’t attempt to hide the in-progress nature of its narrative. It even concludes with a title card announcing that the verdict in Barbarin’s trial will be delivered on March 7, four weeks after the finished film’s Berlinale premiere; by the time many audiences get to see it, subsequent developments will have added different emotional hues to its onscreen ending.

    That immediacy is both a virtue and a slight hindrance in a project that doesn’t play to Ozon’s usual strengths. Such a boon to his elegant genre pieces, his tricky, ahead-of-the-game authority

    ‘Killing Eve’ Director to Helm Millie Bobby Brown’s ‘Enola Holmes’ (Exclusive)

    Legendary has closed a deal for Harry Bradbeer to direct “Enola Holmes” starring Millie Bobby Brown, sources tell Variety. Insiders also say Jack Thorne will adapt the script, which is based on the Nancy Springer book series “The Enola Holmes Mysteries.”

    Brown will also produce through her Pcma Productions banner.

    The book series began with the 2006 title “The Case of the Missing Marquess” and covered six novels, revolving around mysteries investigated by Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ much younger sister, Enola.

    Alex Garcia and Ali Mendes will oversee the project for Legendary.

    Legendary and Brown have built a strong relationship after she was tapped to star in “Godzilla: King of Monsters,” and the studio was quick to attach her to star in “Enola Holmes” after she had wrapped filming on that sequel. The plan is to shoot the film this summer after Brown finishes production on “Godzilla vs. Kong.”

    Malin Akerman to Star in NBC’s Murder-Trial Drama Pilot ‘Prism’

    Malin Akerman to Star in NBC’s Murder-Trial Drama Pilot ‘Prism’
    Malin Akerman has been cast in a leading role on NBC’s drama pilot “Prism,” TheWrap has learned.

    The project is described as an exploration of a murder trial in which every episode is told through the perspective of a different key person involved. Each new version of the facts ratchets up the mystery and the suspense, calling into question everything we have seen so far and asking if the right person is on trial. Driven by an ensemble of complicated characters, the show lets the audience ask if truth matters less than who can tell the most compelling story.

    The “Billions” star will play Rachel Lewis, “an Erin Brockovich-type force of nature,” who is described as “as empathetic as she is ruthless and a brilliantly passionate public defender.”

    Jay Baruchel Talks About His Deep Connection to ‘How to Train Your Dragon’

    Jay Baruchel Talks About His Deep Connection to ‘How to Train Your Dragon’
    After three feature-length movies, 118 TV episodes and four short films, Jay Baruchel is seemingly finished voicing hero Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III in “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World,” which hits U.S. theaters Feb. 22. Known for his comedy roles, the Canadian actor will also show off his dramatic side this year in Lone Scherfig’s “The Kindness of Strangers,” debuted at the Berlin Film Festival on Feb. 7.

    Could you relate to Hiccup’s transformation from awkward teen to bona fide hero?

    I started recording Hiccup 12 years ago. By virtue of that passage of time, I’m much more of an old fart than when I started. I’ve gone through a bunch of stuff just like he has. I lost my dad when I was 21, a little older than he was. There’s a lot of spots where I think our lives dovetail. Sometimes it’s hard to

    How Peter Jackson’s ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ Crew Carefully Restored Archival Footage

    How Peter Jackson’s ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ Crew Carefully Restored Archival Footage
    Peter Jackson’s World War 1 film “They Shall Not Grow Old,” already one of this year’s top-grossing documentaries, began with 100 hours of archival footage from World War I.

    Clearly, creating a new film out of century-old footage presents daunting challenges, but producer-director Jackson and his team resourcefully pushed ahead, assembling the film out of original material — much of it never before seen — from the archives of the Imperial War Museum.

    “Whenever we got clean, sharp footage to work with, we were in great shape,” says Wayne Stables, a visual effects supervisor at Jackson’s New Zealand-based Weta Digital. He worked outside his regular job to aid the filmmaker for six months as a colorist. Much of the footage was in bad condition, he says. “Most of it was moderately difficult, some of it was extremely difficult, and every so often God would smile upon us and we’d get something amazingly clean.

    Casey Affleck Says His New Film Was Conceived Before #MeToo and Time’s Up

    Casey Affleck Says His New Film Was Conceived Before #MeToo and Time’s Up
    In Berlin to tout his latest film, Oscar-winning actor Casey Affleck said Friday that everyone “has had to do some sort of self-reckoning” and ponder how to “play a positive role” in the era of #MeToo and other movements highlighting the harassment and discrimination women have suffered in the entertainment and other industries.

    He also said that his new film, “Light of My Life,” a dark survival drama in which a father fights to protect his daughter in a dystopian world, wasn’t a direct response to the #MeToo movement or his own situation since decade-old allegations of sexual harassment resurfaced in 2016. Affleck wrote, produced, directed and stars in “Light of My Life,” which world premieres at the Berlin Film Festival on Friday evening. Elisabeth Moss also stars.

    “This was conceived and written and filmed…entirely before these were issues that people were talking about,” he said at a press conference alongside Anna Pniowsky,
