The Baby from 'Labyrinth' Grew Up to Be a Puppeteer Like Jim Henson

9 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Labyrinth fans: do you ever sit around and wonder what happened to the actor who played Toby Williams, the infant brother of Jennifer Connelly’s Sarah who is kidnapped by David Bowie’s Jareth, the Goblin King? The end of the film shows little Toby safe and snug in his bed, but what did the child actor do when he grew up? The answer can be found in this trailer for the live-action puppet short film Lessons Learned.  Actor and puppet maker Toby Froud is the son of Brian Froud and Wendy Midener — two of the renowned artists who worked on the Jim Henson-directed film and created some of its memorable characters (the “junk lady,” for starters). It turns out that young Toby was bitten by the puppeteering bug and grew up to attend the Muppet...

Film Review: ‘Paris Follies’

3 July 2014 4:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Alexander Payne had been born in Normandy rather than Nebraska, he might have made a film like “Paris Follies,” a gently comedic portrait of a rural cow farmer trying to cope when his restless wife, Brigitte, leaves him for a big-city fling. Though a bit too provincial to be much of a draw even in its native France, Marc Fitoussi’s slyly observant romance offers a welcome opportunity to re-enlist actress Isabelle Huppert after their keen collaboration on “Copacabana,” a superior film that remains undistributed in the U.S. — no doubt a discouraging sign for this relatively banal reunion.

Claudia Llosa’s recent Berlinale entry “Aloft” opened with a gritty scene of Jennifer Connelly plunging her arm deep into a cow’s insides to help pry forth a calf. As fearless an actress as they come, Huppert would no doubt welcome such a challenge, and though “Paris Follies” takes »

Video: A young Jennifer Connelly auditions for 'Labyrinth'

23 June 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Today, Jennifer Connelly is a Hollywood A-lister: She won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2001 for A Beautiful Mind and has starred in a number of other critically acclaimed films, including Requiem for a Dream and Blood Diamond.

Back in the 1980s, however, well before achieving said A-list status, Connelly was a little-known actress. One major film that put he on the map: Jim Henson’s 1986 film Labyrinth, also famously starring David Bowie.

The film tells the story of Sarah (Connelly), a 15-year-old who wishes her baby half-brother, Toby (Toby Froud), away to Jareth the Goblin King (Bowie). Sarah, who »

Telefilm Canada Supports New Feature Films

20 June 2014 9:55 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Telefilm Canada has confirmed its financial support of nearly $13 million of Canadian tax payers' money towards the production of nine English-language feature films through the 'Canada Feature Film Fund', although there doesn't seem to be anything culturally 'Canadian' about most of their selections, other than the crews that will be working on them.

Among the films receiving money include a psycho horror with a demonic 'Santa Claus', a bio pic about a former Queen of Sweden, the 'relationship' between 'James Dean' and a photographer, a thriller involving a Satanic child abuse sex ring, and an inflatable Sex Doll drug smuggling story:

The films are "After the Ball" (Sean Garrity), "A Christmas Horror Story" (Steven Hoban, Grant Harvey, Brett Sullivan), "Aloft" (Claudia Llosa), "A Worthy Companion" (Jason Sanchez, Carlos Sanchez), "Life" (Anton Corbijn), "Regression" (Alejandro Amenabar), "Rest Home" (Michael Rowe), "The Girl King" (Mika Kaurismäki) and "Zoom" (Pedro Morelli »

Phillip Noyce Finally Directing Long-Gestating 'American Pastoral'

18 June 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For 11 years now, an adaptation of Philip Roth’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel American Pastoral has been trying to get off the ground, thanks to the efforts of Salt director Phillip Noyce (who has the sci-fi adaptation of The Giver coming later this year). One iteration was said to have included Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly, but that never came to fruition and floated around as a rumor for years. Now Noyce seems to be on the right track as he tells ComingSoon that American Pastoral will be his next project, and it will be Ewan McGregor (August: Osage County, The Impossible) starring in the lead role. More below! McGregor (who has a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in A Million Ways to Die in the West), has taken a wide variety of interesting roles, and this one is no different. The actor will play Swede Levov, a legendary athlete at his Newark high school, »

How Indie Director Josh Boone Landed 'The Fault in Our Stars': He Pitched It as 'Titanic'

6 June 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

By all accounts, "The Fault In Our Stars," adapted from the best-selling novel of the same name by John Green, is expected to be a huge hit this summer. Starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, the film tells the bittersweet love story of two witty teenagers who fall in love after meeting at a cancer support group.  The tearjerking tale was a hot Hollywood project from the get-go, so how did a little known director by the name of Josh Boone land the plum gig? With only one indie film under his belt, the comedy-drama "Stuck in Love" (previously named "Writers"), Boone made the jump to studio fare with his straightforward vision of the film and with his heartfelt pitch.

20 Musicians That Actually Turned into Incredible Actors

20 Musicians That Actually Turned into Incredible Actors David Bowie, Mandy Moore, Jack White — performances of a lifetime. by Marshall Yarbrough There’s an odd cognitive dissonance that takes place when musicians make the jump to the silver screen. Sometimes you’re properly forewarned, and there’s only a momentary lapse before you suspend disbelief — oh yeah, I heard so-and-so was in this. It’s more jarring when the appearance comes as a surprise, when the '60s chanteuse seems to pop up on your Netflix as if magically transported from your friend’s big sister’s record collection. Here are the films that best capture that strange moment when you see your favorite pop star in a film. David Bowie in The Prestige Granted, most of our childhood nightmares featured Bowie’s feathered hair and mammoth crotch bulge stalking Jennifer Connelly in Labyrinth.

The holiday comedy reunites Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt with their 50/50 director Jonathan Levine.
