Latest News • RETROSPECTIVE: The Master: Philip Seymour Hoffman
Welcome! The aim of this website is to bring up to date information about the career of Billy Crudup. This site will focus on career only. “I’m trying to make a living by pretending to be different people, and if people know too much about me, that makes it really hard to do a job that I already find difficult. Then there’s nothing I can do to convince anybody that I’m you know, an ex-con from Queens” Source: U.S. (Feb 1999)

The great actor Philip Seymour Hoffman had an uncanny ability to disappear into a role yet at the same time to invest his performances with such complexity, depth, and empathy that they always felt deeply personal. Drawn to playing highly flawed characters, he was able to seem at once larger than life and recognizably imperfect. In over 60 film performances, the boldness of his choices was always breathtaking. As he once said, “It’s all risk! Living a life is basically about you entering one situation after another that you may or may not want to enter. Everything has stakes, everything has meaning, everything has consequences.” A profound search for truth was at the core of his art, and his death in 2014 was a tremendous loss to the public and to the many actors, directors, and colleagues whose lives he touched so profoundly. The screenings will be accompanied by guest appearances, to be announced, and clips from his other films, to showcase his astonishing versatility.

Jules   Aug 19, 2016   ‘Alien: Covenant’

A very brief video from the set of Alien: Covenant reveals actress Katherine Waterston passed out in a hypersleep chamber, similar to the one we’ve seen in Alien and Aliens, only this one is constantly flashing lights, which I know would give me a restless night’s sleep. If it’s not as close to pitch black as possible, I’m waking up in a crabby mood. Read More: // here

Jules   Jul 31, 2016   ‘Alien: Covenant’

Michael Fassbender teases a “scarier” alien creature in next year’s Prometheus follow-up and franchise revival, Alien Covenant. Ridley Scott’s belated 2012 directorial return to his bellwether sci-fi horror Alien franchise in Prometheus met mixed fan feedback ranging from perceptions of it as an enthrallingly deep philosophical exploration of the primordial, to another viewing the film as a slow, pretentious indulgence in ontological space fiction. However, its roots in the Alien mythology were firmly fed, leaving things open to expand into terrifying new territory. Indeed, co-star Michael Fassbender hints at such a direction.

Jules   Jul 24, 2016   '20th Century Women', Film Festivals

New films from Jake Gyllenhaal, Tom Hanks, Emily Blunt and Amy Adams are set to be unveiled at the upcoming festivals. Here’s our run-down of what to expect
Quite likely: 20th Century Women
Mike Mills (Thumbsucker, Beginners) returns with a 1970s-set drama about a group of women (Elle Fanning, Annette Bening, Greta Gerwig) set all a-flutter when a dishy handyman (Billy Crudup) rents a bungalow behind their boarding house. Likely to be more subtle and less sugary than it sounds. Read More: // here
