‘Submergence’ is out on Theaters and Digital HD

Written by Luciana on April 15 2018

James’ new film Submergence (with Alicia Vikander) is finally on limited theaters and it’s also available on Digital HD from Amazon Video and iTunes. DVD and Blu-ray release date is set for May 15, 2018.

In a room with no windows on the eastern coast of Africa, a Scotsman, James More, is held captive by jihadist fighters. Thousands of miles away in the Greenland Sea, Danielle Flinders prepares to dive in a submersible to the ocean floor. In their confines they are drawn back to the Christmas of the previous year, where a chance encounter on a beach in France led to an intense and enduring romance.

I’ve got my own digital copy and made screen captures – which obviously have spoilers if you still didn’t see the movie yet. Also additional stills are added, so, enjoy!

James McAvoy and Alicia Vikander form a deep connection in Submergence clip

Written by Luciana on April 15 2018

“I love the smell of sweat.”

It’s a strange pick-up line, but it works for Dani (Alicia Vikander) when she meets James (James McAvoy) at a French seaside hotel and they begin an intense romance in the new Wim Wenders drama Submergence (in theaters today). Dani is a deep-diving marine scientist, and James is a spy who goes to Somalia and is captured by jihadist fighters, and as the two risk their lives for their work, they must hold on to their memories of each other.

In the exclusive clip above, we witness the couple’s first meeting, before their lives begin to unravel. With the character of James, McAvoy adds another soldier/spy to his docket (Atomic Blonde, Atonement), and EW called him up to get the low-down on what keeps calling him back to these roles, how the similarities and differences between them inform his work, and the challenges of playing a character who faces repeated psychological abuse.

James McAvoy is aiming to play Cyrano De Bergerac on stage next year

Written by Luciana on April 15 2018

EW – James McAvoy is angling to have a very famous nose.

The star of stage and screen told EW he’s hoping to return to the London stage in 2019 in a production of Cyrano De Bergerac, the play originally penned in 1897 that tells the story of a gifted poet who pines for the beautiful Roxane, but fears his large nose will prevent him from finding romantic happiness.

The play has been translated from the French and adapted for modern audiences dozens of times, and it’s unclear which adaptation, if not a new one, McAvoy would hope to bring to the boards. “We’re just trying to find the time and find the space,” he said.

McAvoy also added that he’s hoping to partner with longtime theatrical collaborator Jamie Lloyd on the production. Lloyd would direct, with McAvoy starring. Most recently, the two worked on Macbeth and The Ruling Class together, which both ran to rave reviews at London’s Trafalgar Studios and earned McAvoy Olivier Award nominations.

McAvoy has worked with Lloyd in the theater for more than a decade, and they share a love of tackling plays with a violent, visceral approach. “I know he’ll hit hard and do them very on-the-front-foot, which is the kind of thing I like,” he said. “I feel like Cyrano is a great opportunity to do both physical and verbal fireworks, so fingers crossed, we can marry both.”

Written by Luciana on April 13 2018

With Jessica Chastain officially on board “It: Chapter 2,” New Line has now begun to zero in on who will play the rest of the Losers Club with James McAvoy and Bill Hader in talks to join the next installment.

Sources tell Variety that McAvoy is in talks for the role of Bill, who was played by Jaeden Lieberher in the first pic, while Hader is in talks for the role of Richie, which was played by Finn Wolfhard in the last film.

Director Andy Muschietti is back to direct, with Gary Dauberman penning the script.

“Chapter One” of “It” followed the first half of Stephen King’s eponymous novel, telling the story of a group of children who are terrorized by Pennywise the Clown and forced to face their own demons to defeat him. “Chapter Two” will follow the last half of the novel, when the characters return to their hometown years later as adults to face Pennywise once again.
