Greenpeace continues to turn up the heat on their “Save The Arctic” campaign, this time with a melancholy new video featuring the music of Radiohead (fan favorite “Everything In Its Right Place”), a voiceover from Jude Law and one very sad polar bear, lost on the streets of London.
“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,” said Jude Law in a Greenpeace statement. “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.”
Polar bears in the Arctic have been having a rough go of it lately, due in large part to climate change and the lack of frozen Arctic sea ice. According to this grim Huffington Post report, it’s gotten so bad that there seems to be an increase in polar bears resorting to cannibalism (even of their own cubs) due to lack of food sources (proceed with caution, as the photos are quite graphic).
“We have to stop the oil giants pushing into the Arctic,” stressed Radiohead’s lead singer Thom Yorke in a statement, as Shell Oil is preparing to start exploratory drilling off the coast of Alaska this summer. “An oil spill in the Arctic would devastate this region of breathtaking beauty, while burning that oil will only add to the biggest problem we all face, climate change. That’s why I’m backing this campaign.”
Infidelity, heartbreak, sex and more unspool and reverberate in Fernando Meirelles’ “360,” an ensemble drama looking at men and women and how they love. With the movie now available on VOD, a couple of clips have landed online to give you a sneak peek at what you can expect.
The first one, from ComingSoon (which you can watch below), centers on Jude Law’s character, whose dalliance outside of his marriage has major repercussions when information about it falls into the wrong hands. The scene offers up an intriguing split screen structure that nicely inserts a third person into the two-way conversation as it unravels, adding an interesting emotional layer. Next up, over at Vulture, the clip shows what Law’s wife, played by Rachel Weisz, has been up to while he’s away. As she tries to break it off with her young lover, things don’t quite work out according to plan.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg — with story strands also focusing on Anthony Hopkins and Ben Foster, there is much more to explore in the film penned by Peter Morgan (“The Queen”). Order “360″ on your TV right now, or you can wait to see it on the big screen starting on August 3rd. Watch below.

LONDON — Jude Law, Judi Dench and Daniel Radcliffe are among the A-list actors signed up for a new London theater troupe, which hopes to attract new theatergoers by offering hundreds of 10 pounds ($16) tickets for each performance.
Simon Russell Beale, Sheridan Smith, David Walliams and Ben Whishaw are also part of the company formed by director Michael Grandage, who led the award-winning Donmar Warehouse troupe for a decade until early 2012.
On Friday Grandage announced a five-play, 15-month season beginning in December with a production of the musical “Privates on Parade.”
Future productions include new play “Peter and Alice” by John Logan; Shakespeare’s “Henry V” with Law in the title role; “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”; and a production of Martin McDonagh’s “The Cripple of Inishmaan” starring Radcliffe.

“Anna Karenina” unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.
Keira recently told HitFix that Anna Karenina is the hardest role she’s ever tackled in her career. “It was amazing. It was definitely the hardest thing I’ve ever done. In a brilliant, brilliant way,” she gushed.
“Obviously, [author Leo] Tolstoy was a genius and I think the reason that his books last so well is because they are so complex, and it’s really looking at the best of humanity and the worst of humanity, often in one character,” she added. “And trying to balance all those things in the one person was really hard. Hopefully it’s worked.”
An adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel, “Anna Karenina” is directed by Joe Wright and written by Oscar winner Screenwriter. The drama is also supported by Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Alicia Vikander, Matthew Macfadyen and Domhnall Gleeson.
Focus Features will release the film in limited theaters in the U.S. on November 9.
