Domhnall is featured alongside Gigi Hadid in the current issue of December 2015 (with Jennifer Lawrence on the cover) with a brand new editorial. We have added the photoshoot and magazine scans in our gallery.
Domhnall has joined the cast of “Crash Pad” according to Variety. He will star alongside Christina Applegate, Thomas Haden Church and Nina Dobrev.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” star Domhnall Gleeson, Christina Applegate, Thomas Haden Church and Nina Dobrev are starring in the romantic comedy “Crash Pad,” which has started shooting in Vancouver, Variety has learned exclusively.
Wonderful Films, Indomitable Entertainment, and Windowseat Entertainment are the production companies. Kevin Tent, the Oscar-nominated editor on Alexander Payne’s”The Descendants” and “Nebraska” is making his directorial debut with a Black List script by Jeremy Catalino.
Gleeson stars as a hopeless romantic who thinks he’s found true love with an older woman, played by Applegate — only to learn that she’s married and that his fling is merely an instrument of revenge against her neglectful husband, played by Church. He threatens to blackmail her by telling her husband but his plan backfires when the husband decides the best way to get back at his wife is to move in with Gleeson’s character and adopt the slacker’s life of debauchery.
THR is reporting that “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will have it’s world red carpet premiere on December 14 in Los Angeles.
Disney and Lucasfilm will unveil Star Wars: The Force Awakens at a massive world premiere in Los Angeles on Dec. 14, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
From there, the highly anticipated sequel will jump into hyperspace and head for a premiere in London, followed by other events around the world.
The Los Angeles premiere is sure to be one of the hottest tickets in recent Hollywood history, with executives, agents and journalists jockeying for a coveted invite. In addition, Disney is attempting to keep the film’s secrets under wraps, so there likely will be minimal screenings for press and cast and crew in advance of the premiere. While castmembers from the J.J. Abrams-helmed film have appeared at Comic-Con and Star Wars Celebration over the past year, the world premiere also is likely to be the first time that most or all of the cast will be seen together.
Daily Mail is reporting that Domhnall will star and reunited with “Frank” director Lenny Abrahamson for “The Little Stranger“.
Domhnall Gleeson, who will star as a small-town doctor in director Lenny Abrahamson’s film version of Sarah Waters’ ghost story The Little Stranger.
The novel, set in the late Forties, has been adapted by Lucinda Coxon, who wrote the screenplay for The Danish Girl, Tom Hooper’s brilliant film about a different kind of marriage.
Abrahamson said he will make the picture in Britain next summer. ‘It’s an intelligent film that doesn’t have super-heroes or schlock,’ he told me.
Abrahamson already has a hit with the film Room, starring Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay. It was very successful at the recent Telluride and Toronto film festivals. Room will be shown at the BFI London Film Festival on October 11 to 13.
Gleeson has some big movies coming up! He’s in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and The Revenant, from director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (who shot Birdman).
I’m hearing great things about Revenant, which also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Will Poulter.
THR is reporting that “Brookyln” will open this year’s Vancouver International Film Festival. Domhnall stars alongside Saoirse Ronan, Emory Cohen, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent. For more information be sure to head over to the official website. The festival runs from September 24-October 9.
Lured from Ireland by the American Dream in the wake of WWII, Eilis (Saoirse Ronan) instead lands in the hardscrabble reality of 50s-era Brooklyn, with its cramped boarding houses and grungy dancehalls where bad decisions wait to be made. There’s an avuncular priest to offer guidance (Jim Broadbent) and a stern landlady (the scene-stealing Julie Walters) to keep her in line, but Eilis can’t help but fall prey to homesickness. Then, she meets Tony (Emory Cohen) and begins to see a possible future in America (even if it means enduring the anti-Irish wrath of his kid brother). Alas, the fates conspire against her as tragedy calls her home. Greeted by her old community like a conquering queen and gallantly pursued by an insistent suitor (Domhnall Gleeson), Eilis suddenly finds herself at the most vexing of crossroads.
With Nick Hornby having masterfully adapted Colm Tóibín’s beloved novel, John Crowley crafts a stirring immigration tale that also serves as a rousing account of female empowerment. Often cutting a figure of fierce determination on screen (including in her breakout role in VIFF 2007’s Atonement), Ronan here has the ideal role to display her ability to eloquently convey an inner emotional maelstrom in which exhilaration and restraint vie for control. In this moving romantic drama, she couldn’t be any more compelling.
“Classily and classically crafted in the best sense… [Brooklyn] provides the feeling of being lifted into a different world altogether, so transporting is the film’s sense of time and place and social mores… The narrative in both the novel and the film is so rigorously calibrated that, when it comes down to the decision about which man and which country she will pick, it feels more like a suspense tale, with lives hanging in the balance.”—Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
The 59th BFI London Film Festival announced it’s line-up earlier today and it was announced that “Brooklyn” will screen at the festival as part of it’s Galas screenings. The movie will have screenings on October 12, 13 and 14 according to the official schedule. The festival runs from October 7-18. For more information about the festival be sure to head over to the official website.
Saoirse Ronan shines as a woman who journeys from post-war small-town Ireland to New York, in Nick Hornby’s adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s best-selling novel.
The exquisite pain of choosing – between an Irish homeland and the new promise of America; between the dapper certainty of one suitor and the infectious dreams of another – this is the dilemma that faces Eilis (Saoirse Ronan) and is at the heart of both Colm Tóibín’s best-selling novel and Nick Hornby’s stirring adaptation. Opportunities are scarce for young women in post-war, small-town Ireland and spurred on by the efforts of her elder sister Rose and the help of Father Flood (Jim Broadbent), Eilis emigrates to New York. Overcoming waves of homesickness, she sets about establishing her new life and soon falls in love with the handsome and doting Italian-American, Tony (Emory Cohen). Following an unexpected family tragedy, she returns to Ireland where her freshly acquired sophistication attracts the attention of Jim (Domhnall Gleeson) and the prospect of a permanent return home. Director John Crowley (Boy A, Intermission), adroitly balances tone and mood, combining the pristine romance of Pride and Prejudice with the nostalgic trappings of 1950s Americana and the poetic melancholy of Colm Tóibín’s novel. Ronan (Atonement, Hanna) is captivating as a mature young woman with a zest for life, while the inimitable Julie Walters stands out amongst the uniformly excellent cast, offering a delicious turn as Eilis’s Brooklyn landlady.
The Toronto International Film Festival announced this year’s schedule earlier this week. “Brookyln” is selected for the festival as part of their Special Presentation programme, as we previously reported. The festival runs from September 10-20 and Domhnall is “expected to attend” according to the official guest list press release. For more information about the tickets and festival be sure to head over to the official website.

The following programmers note was released:
In the early 1950s, a young Irish woman (Saoirse Ronan) crosses the Atlantic to begin a new life in America, in this exquisitely crafted adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Colm Tóibín.
This Sundance hit from Festival alum John Crowley — with its stellar cast including Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Jim Broadbent, and Julie Walters — is an exquisitely crafted period piece telling the tale of a young immigrant in a strange new land.
There aren’t many opportunities for young women in postwar Ireland, but soft-spoken Eilis Lacey (Ronan) is lucky: America has long been considered the land of opportunity, and when her family makes arrangements with a kindly Brooklyn priest (Broadbent) for her to move there, she jumps at the chance. Set up tentatively in a boarding house and working in a swanky Brooklyn department store, Eilis struggles to find her place — but after meeting Tony (Emory Cohen), a handsome young Italian man with an infectious passion for life, she’s filled with the joy of young love and the promise of a future. When a family tragedy brings her back to Ireland, she discovers that her perspective has changed dramatically; facing mounting pressures from those closest to her, Eilis must decide where she is to spend the rest of her life.
