I think it will hit at the Box Office.August 20, 2019 at 9:00 am #1203031596
Look at this one. It’s very well photographed. It could nominated for Best Cinematography.August 20, 2019 at 7:46 am #1203031460
What you all think of its screenplay if ever they are going to campaign for awards consideration? Is it original or adapted?August 17, 2019 at 3:04 am #1203027546
I’ve never seen the series. I do have the complete series on Blu Ray but haven’t gotten around to viewing it. Will viewers of the film need to have seen the series or can this be viewed ‘cold’ so to speak.
You have to watch the series completely. I recommend it. You will get puzzled if you watch the movie without knowing their characters.August 16, 2019 at 10:23 pm #1203027448
I think the naysayers have agendas and will be surprised. This one is going to be well regarded by older academy voters. I am sick of this stupid “fanservice” b.s. The trailer is fantastic and some of us are really looking forward to this movie! Awards don’t really matter but I still hope for many nominations for it, esp. for Robert James-Collier!
Some members of the Academy are fan of the TV series. They are definitely going to watch the movie. We will see after September 20 what critics will say.August 16, 2019 at 3:55 pm #1203026989
This movie smells fan service. I don’t see above the line Oscar nods happening. Something like Deadwood which flopped at the Emmys. Only, TV movie is a different story.
I’m a big fan of Downton Abbey. Although I like the film to get Oscar nominations but it’s fine if it will not. I will still watch the movie regardless.August 16, 2019 at 3:52 pm #1203026983
Two-time Academy Award nominated actor/screenwriter Peter Fonda has died at the age of 79. https://variety.com/2019/film/people-news/peter-fonda-dead-star-of-easy-rider-ulees-gold-dies-at-79-1203305078/
May he Rest in peace. How sad!August 16, 2019 at 12:36 pm #1203026716
What is the release date for it? The trailers keep on saying “September” but which day in September? I am giddy with excitement! I will be first in line for it! (:
It will be shown to other countries on September 12.
September 13 – UK release
September 20 – USA releaseAugust 15, 2019 at 12:49 pm #1203025391
It would be interesting to know what people think of the movie who haven’t seen the series. The series is definitely worth watching! It covers roughly the years 1912-1925 and I believe the movie is set in 1926.
The movie is set from 1927 to 1929. The King and Queen are coming to Downton that cause stir among the Upstairs and the Downstairs.
Honestly, I’m more excited for Imelda Staunton. She rocked the Hogwarts before and now she will rock the Dowager and the inhabitants of Downton Abbey.August 4, 2019 at 8:21 am #1203009809
Those brave enough to predict The Lighthouse elsewhere should seriously consider Pattinson in this category: ‘Pattinson gives a performance of such audacity and muscle that he recalls Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood.’ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/0/lighthouse-review-film-will-make-head-soul-ring/ ‘Forget Batman: Robert Pattinson proves himself once more to be a fearless character actor who brings a layered understanding to Winslow and does not hold back when the shit almost literally hits the fan.’ https://cine-vue.com/2019/05/cannes-2019-the-lighthouse-review.html ‘Pattinson spends the first half sulking around, his eyes darting every which way as he attempts to make sense of his dreary surroundings. But when the material calls for him to unleash his fury, his eyes bulge and his body quakes in a pure show of physical intensity. It’s the sort of showboating the actor tends to avoid, but this histrionic material gives him the ideal excuse to lash out, and with winning results.’ https://www.indiewire.com/2019/05/the-lighthouse-review-robert-pattinson-cannes-2019-1202142861/ ‘[…] when [Pattinson] spits out a speech about how sick he is of listening to the old man, it’s the most ferocious acting of Pattinson’s career […] As the movie goes on, his eyes begin to burn in their sockets.’ https://variety.com/2019/film/reviews/the-lighthouse-review-robert-pattinson-willem-dafoe-1203220127/ ‘Pattinson portrays with deep seeded frustration below the surface until he slowly reaches a passionate roar. The 33-year-old actor has simply never been this raw on screen before. There are moments where Pattinson is so transformative it’s jarring. You simply never thought he had it in him.’ http://collider.com/the-lighthouse-review-robert-pattinson/
Next year it could be between Pattinson and Phoenix. I’m excited!August 4, 2019 at 8:14 am #1203009805
I wouldn’t be surprised if Maggie Smith and Joanne Froggatt lands a nomination.
Don’t discount Imelda Staunton. Michelle Dockery was raving about her performance and she’s a new sparring partner of Dame Maggie’s character. I wouldn’t be surprise though if she landed a nomination over Smith or Froggatt.July 31, 2019 at 8:36 pm #1203004918
If it gets multiple noms and Dafoe is campaigned supporting, he could well end up being the frontrunner, though I’m wary that he’s looked like a conceivable winner on paper the last two years running and it never panned out.
Dafoe is so hot in actors branch. Two consecutive nominations. It could be three if ever he’ll get nominated next year. The role requires him to have british accent. That is something.July 31, 2019 at 11:04 am #1203004000
Amy Adams is so likely. She almost had 7 but alas she was overlooked for Arrival. I can see more than 8 for Amy. Win or lose.
