How Costumes Reveal Character in Oscar Contenders ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ and ‘Mudbound’

How Costumes Reveal Character in Oscar Contenders ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ and ‘Mudbound’
You won’t find a sharper contrast in period costume design than the farm life of “Mudbound” vs. the high fashion of “Murder on the Orient Express.” The former, directed by Dee Rees, is a sprawling saga about two families, one black, one white, in the 1940s Mississippi Delta. And the latter, helmed by Kenneth Branagh (who also plays the wildly mustachioed Hercule Poirot), is a stylish, 1934 murder mystery aboard the eponymous luxury locomotive.

Tackling Parallel Settings for “Mudbound

There were two challenges for costume designer Michael T. Boyd (“Bessie,” “We Were Soldiers,” “Gettysburg”): Authenticating clothing for parallel settings on the Mississippi Delta and in aerial and tank battles during World War II. “It stretches your creativity,” said Boyd, who was working on a small budget for the indie feature distributed by Netflix.

“You’re trying to realistically recreate the atmosphere,” Boyd added. “That was my mission on this show.

Murder on the Orient Express sequel in development

Fox is developing a sequel to Murder on the Orient Express by adapting Death on the Nile.

Murder on the Orient Express, an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name, was released earlier this month. So far the film has accumulated $148 million worldwide from a budget of $55 million.

Twentieth Century Fox is now developing a sequel, this time based on Christie’s novel Death on the Nile.

Michael Green, the screenwriter for Murder on the Orient Express has been hired for the follow up, however, director/star Kenneth Branagh has yet to sign on – all though he is indeed expected to return and has already expressed his interest in adapting the book.

Death on the Nile was first published in 1937, three years after Murder on the Orient Express. The book’s story sees Belgian detective Hercule Poirot (Branagh) vacationing in Egypt and discovering a murder on the Nile River,

Et Obsessions: ‘Godless,’ Disney’s ‘Coco’ and More This Holiday Weekend!
Here at Et, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and this is what we’re most excited about the week of Thanksgiving:

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Godless

From Steven Soderbergh and Scott Frank (Logan screenwriter) comes a western saga that is both familiar and fresh in its telling of ruthless outlaws terrorizing a town populated only by women when a bandit turns to them for cover. “This story is an authentic western in many ways, but it's a story that hasn't been told. It flips the western genre on its head by having the narrative, at the heart of it, [told through] this town of women,” says Michelle Dockery, who, in the midst of a great post-Downton Abbey run as Letty on TNT’s Good Behavior, plays Alice, one of the town’s widows who takes in Roy (Jack O’Connell). “It's something that people won't have seen before.” Newcomer Audrey Moore, who plays

19 Music Video Cameos You Totally Need to See Again
Liam Payne‘s most recent music video for his single, “Bedroom Floor,” is one to remember – and not just because of its catchy beat; the song’s video features Bella Thorne, who portrays a girl dealing with a flaky boyfriend.

Payne is hardly the first singer to feature another celeb in his music video. Some are particularly iconic – think Liv Tyler and Alicia Silverstone in Aerosmith’s “Crazy,” or Lena Dunham, Cindy Crawford and more in Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” – but there are a bunch we bet you forgot about:

What We Can Expect From ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’, According To The Film’s Producer

He’s got a hit playing in UK cinemas at the moment with Paddington 2 and has managed to launch a new world of wizarding wonder with ‘Fantastic Beasts’. David Heyman is riding the crest of a wave at the moment, particularly as one of his upcoming projects is the next Quentin Tarantino movie. Heyman has, however, been speaking about a production which is pretty much in the can, the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald. The producer was speaking to Entertainment Weekly about what we may expect from the big-budget sequel, due next year.

Here’s what he had to say to the outlet.

“We delve deeper into Jo’s wizarding world — we’re in Paris, we’re in London and New York — the world is expanding. As you can tell from the image, we’re following quite a few characters.

Fox Announces Murder On The Orient Express Sequel

Hercule Poirot may be the greatest detective on the face of the planet, but even he is no match for the curious case of the Murder on the Orient Express.

Lifted from the pages of Agatha Christie’s timeless masterclass, 20th Century Fox and writer-director Kenneth Branagh recently brought us a new and modern take on the iconic thriller, where Branagh took point as the aforementioned Poirot. While aboard the titular, serpentine vessel, our astute lead found himself in the thick of a widespread conspiracy upon discovering that businessman Samuel Edward Ratchett (Johnny Depp) had been murdered in one of the cabins. Cue the speculation.

What followed was a whodunnit of epic proportions, but unfortunately, the film’s enviable cast couldn’t quite save it, as critics slammed the pic, with our own Matt Donato calling it “an antique mystery that chugs along at 5-miles an hour without any turns

The Crimes Of Grindelwald Will Be “More Thrilling” And “Richer” Than Fantastic Beasts

With an evocative subtitle like The Crimes of Grindelwald, it’s clear that Warner’s second Harry Potter prequel is gunning to immerse viewers in a thrilling saga of dark wizards, young prodigies, and a newly-published magizoologist in Newt Scamander.

And sure enough, during a recent chat with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer David Heyman spilled the beans on Fantastic Beasts 2, and why he believes the 2018 sequel is “richer, deeper, and more thrilling” than its wondrous predecessor.

Set to chronicle the rise and rise of Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp), a malevolent wizard who once had close ties to the young Albus Dumbledore, Fantastic Beasts 2 welcomes all of the first film’s key personnel – director David Yates and screenwriter/franchise mastermind J.K. Rowling included. And Heyman is confident that The Crimes of Grindelwald will be able to avoid the sophomore slump with ease.

Fantastic Beasts producer on casting Jude Law as Dumbledore in The Crimes of Grindelwald

This past week, Warner Bros. unveiled an official image from the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel – now titled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – which included our very first look at Jude Law as the legendary wizard Albus Dumbledore.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts producer David Heyman discussed Law’s casting, stating what qualities he feels that the actor brings to the iconic role:

One of the reasons we chose Jude is he has many of the qualities we find in Dumbeldore in the Potter films. He’s got authority, he’s got a twinkle in his eye, he’s sometimes a bit elliptical. So you have that but also have this youthful energy and jubilance. So he brings that twinkle, mischief, authority, and power, but at the same time brings far more youthful energy to the film. You understand why

Fantastic Beasts Fans Are Outraged by Johnny Depp's Inclusion in the Sequel

  • BuzzSugar
The sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - the recently titled Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - has a problem that no amount of magic, movie or otherwise, is capable of fixing. A gorgeous photo of the film's cast was recently released, and while the addition of a few new characters is exciting, one familiar face has loyal fans of J.K. Rowling's story outraged: Johnny Depp. His appearance in the promotional photo shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who's seen the first movie; at the end of Fantastic Beasts, Colin Farrell's Graves is revealed to actually be the evil wizard Grindelwald in disguise, played by Depp. It's a shocking moment that kicks off the narrative for the next four films, which will follow the climactic clash between Grindelwald and a young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law). In other words? Depp is going to be

Box Office: ‘Justice League’ Stalls with $94 Million Opening Weekend

Box Office: ‘Justice League’ Stalls with $94 Million Opening Weekend
Warner Bros.-D.C.’s “Justice League” is headed for an underwhelming opening weekend, coming in below early predictions with an estimated $94 million at 4,051 North American locations during its opening weekend.

The number marks a nearly 15% drop from early reports, which had pegged “Justice League’s” opening weekend in the $110 million range. With an estimated budget of around $300 million, “Justice League” poses high stakes for Warner Bros. The movie is the fifth installment of its DC Extended Universe, aimed at duplicating the success of Disney-Marvel’s interconnected franchises.

Gal Gadot stars as Wonder Woman along with Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as the Flash, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, and Willem Dafoe also appear. Zack Snyder began shooting “Justice League” in April of 2016, from a script by Chris Terrio.

Here’s Why Jude Law Was Cast As Young Dumbledore In Fantastic Beasts 2

The recent unveiling of the first cast photo for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the second entry in the Harry Potter spinoff series, was an exciting moment for fans as it gave us our first look at Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore. The sequel will explore the younger days of the beloved wizard that we previously got to know as an elderly Hogwarts headmaster (brilliantly played by both Richard Harris and Michael Gambon).

Picking the right actor to portray this fresh take on one of the most familiar characters in the Wizarding World was crucial, then, and after a much-scrutinized search, Law was eventually awarded the highly-coveted role. While chatting with EW, producer David Heyman was on hand to explain why the British actor was the perfect person to bring young Dumbledore to life.

“He’s got authority, he’s got a twinkle in his eye, he’s sometimes a bit elliptical.

Does The Fantastic Beasts 2 Cast Photo Confirm A Major Fan Theory?

Every serious Harry Potter fan will have seen yesterday’s atmospheric cast photo that introduces the major players of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. There’s a lot of information jammed into the pic, too, notably the confirmation that Johnny Depp will continue to play the titular dark wizard after his cameo at the end of Fantastic Beasts and our first proper look at Jude Law as a young (well, middle-aged) Albus Dumbledore.

But there’s more to this cast photo than meets the eye, and eagle-eyed fans have done a bit of detective work and concluded some very interesting things about Claudia Kim’s character, seen snuggling up to Ezra Miller’s Credence in the photo below. Billed as a ‘Maledictus,’ the press release describes her as “the carrier of a blood curse that destines her ultimately to transform into a beast.”

Amber Heard is just living "truthfully." 

The 31-year-old actress appears on the cover of GQ Australia's December issue as their Woman of the Year, and inside the magazine, opens up about being labeled a "role model" after her divorce from Johnny Depp

"I feel incredibly fortunate that I'm in a position where I could be of any help," she reveals. "At times it's a burden to consider that your life is no longer just yours and it's not private. It can be hard to know that you can't function in full -- that anonymity is no longer a valid goal and that your actions and words, whether they're done on a red carpet or in the most intimate corners of your personal life, to know that those aren't fully yours anymore."

First image of the cast from ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelward’

Here’s the first image from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelward, the newly-monikered second film (of five) in the new J.K. Rowling-penned franchise. Opening November 16th 2018, the film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp; and is directed by David Yates.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Depp) was captured by MacUsa (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead.
