Watch: Impressive 6 Minute Clip From 'Anna Karenina' Starring Keira Knightley, Jude Law & Aaron Johnson....a very serious Jude Law, a weird hair cut but...well he still the one...:)

The fall filmgoing season won't be lacking film's of ambition, from Paul Thomas Anderson's 65mm look at the formation of a cult in "The Master" to Baz Luhrmann's 3D take on "The Great Gatsby" to the fantastical razzle dazzle of Ang Lee's 3D "Life Of Pi." But also aiming squarely for your eyes and heart as well is Joe Wright's "Anna Karenina" and this generous six minute clip showcases a film that is swinging all the way to fences.
Preceeding the Film4 promo clip, director Joe Wright explains that the production utilized a rundown theater for the entirety of the shoot, with over 100 interconnected sets build for use in the film, and boy does he ever make the most of the it. This sequence moves with a fluidity we don't get all that often, running from a beautiful ballroom -- with a ceiling that opens to show a fireworks display, in a particularly great shot -- and ending in Anna's chambers, where she has a bracing conversation with Alexei. There is a sort of great theatricality and decadence both in performances and visually that you'll either roll with...or won't...but it really, really worked for this writer. It feels like one of the great costume dramas of yore, but with a interesting contemporary flavor and approach. And the performances from Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson are compelling, even as the tones shift throughout this clip.
Give it a spin below. "Anna Karenina" opens in the U.K. on September 7th and in the U.S. on November 9th.

Wes Anderson Wants Johnny Depp & Jude Law For New Film

Basking in the happy glow of critical and commercial success for Moonrise Kingdom, Director Wes Anderson reportedly has his quirky sights set on Jude Law and Johnny Depp for starring roles in his next as yet untitled project.  He also want’s Angela Lansbury of Murder She Wrote fame to join his usual cast of more familiar faces.
As always Anderson is also expected to turn to his winsome muse Bill Murray alongside habitual collaborators Owen Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton and Jason Schwartzman.
No news yet on plot or possible characters, but rest assured Wes Anderson is probably safely wrapped in tweed somewhere, figuring these whimsical things out for us on a broken vintage typewriter.
It also remains to be seen whether or not his ambition of convincing Jude Law and Johnny Depp to forgo their usual salaries for the chance to wear a choice of retro shoes, facial hair and novelty hats proves realistic.

Jude Law urges us to Save the Arctic in new Greenpeace advert

Jude Law urges us to Save the Arctic in new Greenpeace advert

The actor and Radiohead collaborate with Greenpeace to produce the video ‘A Homeless Polar Bear in London' as part of their Save the Arctic campaign.

The video shows a Polar bear wandering around London lost in an unfamiliar habitat.
Radiohead provide the music to the advert, whilst Jude Law provides the voiceover: “Our leaders won’t listen to her, but they’ll listen to you. What do you have to say to those who want to destroy the Arctic?”
The video was released as part of Greenpeace's Save the Arctic campaign which they say "aims to protect the Arctic from oil drilling, industrial fishing and militarization".
Greenpeace claims that “oil companies are using melting sea ice to drill for more of the oil that is causing global warming in the first place."
In a statement on the Greenpeace website, Jude Law wrote: “As the Arctic sea ice melts, polar bears are being forced to go far beyond their normal habitat to find food and look after their young. This film is a powerful expression of how our fates are intertwined, because climate change is affecting all of us no matter where we live.
“Right now a handful of oil companies are trying to carve up the Arctic for the sake of their next quarterly results but a global movement is growing to stop them. I stand with hundreds of thousands of others who think the area should be made into a sanctuary, protected from corporate greed for good.”
