The 20 Best Plot Twists of the 21st Century, Ranked

The 20 Best Plot Twists of the 21st Century, Ranked
It’s the shock of seeing Norman Bates, knife in hand, clad in his mother’s clothes, grinning maniacally in the swinging lamplight. It’s the realization that Kevin Spacey spun us a bunch of lies, and was actually Keyser Söze the whole time. It’s finally connecting “I see dead people” with Bruce Willis being shot at the beginning of “The Sixth Sense.” When movies pull the rug from under us, it’s one of the greatest thrills that cinema can provide.

As Hollywood continues to reboot countless old properties, it’s easy to think that the days of original and surprising storytelling are long behind us. But these films prove that Hollywood still has a few tricks up its sleeve, ones that have kept us talking for years, and have cemented their place in film history.

Beware of spoilers! Here are the best plot twists of the 21st

New Female Spy Films Look to Go Beyond Bond

New Female Spy Films Look to Go Beyond Bond
Will Blake Lively, Jennifer Lawrence and Keira Knightley lead a new spy movie boom? Hollywood has mined characters like James Bond, Jack Ryan and Jason Bourne for box-office gold for decades, but after Wonder Woman, studios are seeing ever greater potential in femme-focused action thrillers.

Producers are shopping star-driven spy packages with filmmaker attachments to studios. This summer, while audiences were waiting to see whether Daniel Craig would return for Bond 25 (he'll suit up for his fifth film), the company behind the series was planning its first non-Bond feature.

On Aug. 16, Eon Productions and producer Barbara Broccoli set...

5 Best And Worst Theatre Experiences!

If you usually visit the theatre, it is almost a sure bet that you have had both a positive and negative experience at one point or another. Personally, I don’t understand why anybody would pay for a cinema ticket only to talk all their way through a film, when they could have easily just gone to a bar to talk each other’s ear off for a couple of hours.

Thankfully, my cinematic adventures in the theatre have been an enjoyable ride for the most part. Whether that was due to a film being so good that it had the ability to totally immerse me in it’s world or seeing a movie with an upbeat crowd of people, well, there are numerous considerations I could have picked from. In this piece I’m going to be talking about five theatre experiences that turned out to be memorable for both worthwhile reasons,

Keira Knightley lands new spy movie

Joseph Baxter Oct 10, 2017

Keira Knightley will return to the spy world, set to star in an indie drama from the company behind Manchester By The Sea.

Keira Knightly has run the blockbuster cinematic gamut over the years, including spy movies, with her co-starring role, opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, in the 2014 biopic The Imitation Game and, in that same year, opposite Chris Pine in the attempted Tom Clancy movie franchise restart Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Now, she’s set to bank another spy movie, this time from the indie company known for the acclaimed drama, Manchester By The Sea.

K Period Media, the independent production company primarily behind Manchester By The Sea, has locked down Knightley to star in an untitled spy drama. The mystery movie will be based on a script by Camilla Blackett, a screenwriter primarily known from the realm of television with U.S. sitcom work on ABC’s

Keira Knightley to Topline Spy Drama Written by Camilla Blackett

Knightley in “Seeking a Friend at the End of the World”: Focus Features

Keira Knightley is joining the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Blake Lively, and Daisy Ridley, all of whom are playing spies in upcoming films. Variety reports that the two-time Oscar nominee has signed on to topline and produce an untitled indie spy movie from K Period Media that will almost certainly see her using her brains and brawn to take out enemies.

The plot of the project isn’t known and a director hasn’t been announced yet. TV scribe Camilla Blackett, whose credits include “Fresh Off the Boat,” “New Girl,” and “The Newsroom,” penned the script.

Producers joining Knightley include Bristol Automotive’s Nora Grossman (“The Imitation Game”) and K Period Media’s Kimberly Steward (“Manchester by the Sea”).

“In the workplace, the only issues I’ve had with competitiveness has been from males, and it’s males who don’t like younger women, and often have issues with women who are senior to them,” Blackett has said. “That’s the most mind-boggling thing: having this level of entitlement where they feel they can express that. Like, this is your boss! Whether she has a vagina has nothing to do with it. I’ve had nothing but really supportive women around me, work-wise,” she emphasized. “Working with women, you just get so much shit done. There’s a lack of ego and posturing. All the filibustering you get from other writers in the writers’ room, it’s always men.”

Knightley received Oscar nods for her roles in “The Imitation Game” and “Pride & Prejudice.” Among her upcoming projects is “Colette,” a biopic based on the life of French writer Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (who used the pen name Colette). In 1948, Colette was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature. But she didn’t get recognition for her writing initially — her first husband, Willy Gauthier-Villars, took all the credit. Rumor has it that Gauthier-Villars, a well-known publisher and author, locked his wife up and forced her to write novels under his name.

Keira Knightley to Topline Spy Drama Written by Camilla Blackett was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Keira Knightley is set to star as a spy in a new drama from K Period Media, the production company behind “Manchester by the Sea,” Variety has learned.

Review: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

  • Comicmix
A good franchise finds nooks and crannies to explore, taking the beloved characters to new places, letting us see how they handle new challenges or opponents.

A bad franchise retreads the elements from the first offering without really making any effort to show us anything new or to deepen our affection for the character(s).

This summer, sadly, we have been presented with several misfires starting with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) was a breath of fresh air when he first stepped ashore many, many years ago. But the tipsy captain with the heart of gold and squishy moral code is pretty much the same here, film number five. We’re learning nothing new about him, we’re seeing him do nothing we haven’t seen before and frankly, we’re bored.

Visually, Dead Men Tell No Tales, is fine.

Benedict Cumberbatch Stars In Emotional First Trailer For The Child In Time

Benedict Cumberbatch fans, get ready for your first look at the star’s latest TV drama, as the BBC have now revealed a 40-second teaser trailer for The Child in Time, the adaptation of the haunting 1987 novel from acclaimed writer Ian McEwan.

The drama sees Cumberbatch and Trainspotting‘s Kelly Macdonald as Stephen and Julie Lewis, a children’s author and his estranged wife whose young daughter goes missing on an everyday trip to the supermarket. The drama then explores their grief, with the trailer leaving it ambiguous whether the couple’s visions of their daughter are just in their minds or are the result of something more supernatural. It promises to be a harrowing depiction of death and loss and we can’t wait to see more.

As fans will know, this is the second time that Cumberbatch has starred in an adaptation of one of Ian McEwan’s novels.
