Rebecca Hall vows to give her salary from the new Woody Allen movie to #TimesUp

Vicky Cristina Barcelona actress Rebecca Hall has now become the latest Woody Allen collaborator to express her regret at working with the famous writer-director, who’s been repeatedly accused by his step-daughter Dylan Farrow of sexual assault.

Professor Marston And The Wonder Women turns an unforgettable love into a forgettable biopic

B-

There was a time, not so very long ago, when a film like Professor Marston And The Wonder Women would have been impossible. Even in 2017, a big-screen biopic that unabashedly celebrates queer, kinky, and polyamorous love is an anomaly, especially in the form of a period romance destined for suburban multiplexes. It…

Professor Marston & The Wonder Women reveal their secret identities in new trailer

Just in case you didn’t pick up on the parallels between Wonder Woman’s secret identity and the secret life her creator William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) lived with his wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall) and their lover Olive (Bella Heathcote), the newest trailer for Annapurna’s upcoming biopic about the unconventional…

Christine’s Rebecca Hall on humanizing a televised suicide

Rebecca Hall doesn’t describe herself as “Method,” but when she was on the set of Christine she rarely left character. It was practical—vocally, she had to maintain a throaty American dialect, she explained to The A.V.

Louis C.K. is in this rare place culturally where he has enough clout and money to fulfill any and all of his artistic desires. There’s no longer any timetable or sense of urgency for his projects.

Rebecca Hall and Jason Sudeikis push past the clichés of Tumbledown

B-

There’s nothing like a love triangle in which one of the three people involved is both famous and dead. “I’m competing with a saint,” complains Tumbledown’s Andrew (Jason Sudeikis) to Hannah (Rebecca Hall), the woman he loves, but it would be more accurate to say that he’s competing with a ghost, albeit one whose…

Jason Bateman unwraps his dark side in smart-then-dumb thriller The Gift

B-

Joel Edgerton’s directorial debut, The Gift, comes packaged as one of those glossy “adult” thrillers that hit peak popularity in the late ’80s and early ’90s, the kind in which some perfect American family is menaced by a smiling human monster, a wolf in sheep’s clothing. On the surface, it’s an odd starring vehicle…

Helena Bonham Carter and Rebecca Hall join Steve McQueen’s HBO series

Director Steven McQueen has added two familiar British faces to his upcoming HBO drama Codes Of Conduct. Helena Bonham Carter and Rebecca Hall will play two privileged members of New York high society in McQueen’s “provocative” series, which follows a young black man named Beverly Snow (played by newcomer Devon Terrell
