Dakota Johnson Joins Luca Guadagnino’s ‘Le Piscine’ Remake; Domhnall Gleeson Joins Leonardo DiCaprio’s ‘Revenant’

3 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Fifty Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson has joined the cast of “I Am Love” helmer Luca Guadagnino’s next picture titled “A Bigger Splash.” This was the film reported as the untitled “sexy thriller” that would star Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Margot Robbie and Matthias Schoenaerts in May. Variety reveals it’s actually a long-gestating adaptation of 1969 French crime drama “La Piscine,” directed by Jacques Deray starring Alain Delon, Romy Schneider (quietly excellent if you haven’t seen it). This is something Guadagino’s been working on development in semi-secret for some time now. The trade mentions Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes, so it’s possible the other two aforementioned stars fell out (or Dakota replaced Robbie). We’ll find out soon enough.

Tim's Toons: The voice of Sandra Bullock

24 July 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tim here. The mission statement of this column is “something to do with animation” (I suck at writing mission statements), which would seemingly preclude me from taking part in Celebrating Sandra Week here at the Film Experience.

But wait! As it turns out, there was exactly one time that Sandra Bullock voiced an animated character, in 1998’s The Prince of Egypt (as opposed to Gravity, where she was the only thing onscreen that wasn’t animated).

An adaptation of the Biblical story of Exodus, this was only the second film ever released by DreamWorks Animation (after 16 years, it remains one of their best). It was also the second DreamWorks film to favor a voice cast chosen for marquee value over skills in voice acting, building on a tradition that the studio would proudly continue for the rest of its existence. And in this case, it continues the longstanding Hollywood habit »

Nicholas Bell’s Top 10 Best of 2014 So Far…

22 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

#10. The Grand Budapest Hotel

Without a doubt, Anderson’s darkest film to date, this also has to be the richest and most complex of his films. A starry supporting cast whirls around the delectable Ralph Fiennes, treading throughout the director’s glorious off beat style. By now, many perhaps take Anderson’s visual mastery for granted, or even dismiss him, yet his work has only become more thrillingly accomplished.

#9. Locke

A film completely set in a moving car with only the visage of Tom Hardy to interact with disembodied voices (one of which is Olivia Colman)? Abandon all fear of tediousness as you experience one of the most inventive and engaging experiments you’ll see this year. Hardy, if you’ve seen Bronson, obviously has no hard time sharing the screen with himself, and while it’s a more subdued performance here, this one’s not to miss.

“Hey, Glad You Won But…”: Top 10 Nominees Deprived of Oscar Gold in Favor of Another Contender

19 July 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The knock on the Academy Awards throughout the years always seem to be how certain actors, directors and films are snubbed in favor of other chosen nominations. Sometimes the justification for these overlooked selections in performances and motion pictures are warranted. Many will agree that a lot of injustices have been committed based on how some Oscar-worthy selections were slighted.

Has anyone ever considered the equal possibilities of omission when one Oscar nominee wins the  golden statuette over another nominee that one thought was more deserving for the victory? There have been numerous instances when observers who have witnessed an Oscar win thought that their competitor should have received it instead. It is only human nature to have an opinion as to feel who should have claimed Oscar gold as opposed to the fellow nominee that actually accomplished the goal.

Let us look at the top ten instances where it »

Big Screen to Small Screen: Top 10 Films About Television

13 July 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There has always been an understated rivalry between the mediums of movies and television. Many years ago it was even thought as being somewhat of a drastic career letdown if actors/actresses from film decided to depart for the landscape of television. The truth is that for some performers that had stalled or uneventful momentum in motion pictures that the concept of “slumming it” in television actually saved their show business profession. Hence, the boob tube made them relevant whereas the big screen had unceremoniously passed them by.

However, there is also a mutual respect that cinema and television share that go hand in hand when shaping our appreciation for entertainment on both the big and small screen. When movies depict the aspects of the TV world giving a sociological, psychological or emotional perspective then it is not so uncool to be a proud couch potato after all, right? Let »

Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill Joining Joel and Ethan Coen's 'Hail, Caesar!'

10 July 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“Hail, Caesar!” is shaping up as one of the Coen brothers’s finest ensembles. A few weeks after securing Ralph Fiennes, Channing Tatum, and Tilda Swinton — who are joining already-cast alumni George Clooney and Josh Brolin — the production has, according to Variety, two promising additions. Following a brief collaboration with the Coens on 2001’s “The Man Who Wasn’t There,” Scarlett Johansson is negotiating toclimb on board "Hail Caesar!" along with Jonah Hill, who would return to orbit with his “Jump Street” co-star Tatum. True to some rumored behind-the-scenes shifts made on “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Johansson — here said to have a small part — would portray “an actress who suddenly becomes pregnant as her film is about to go into production.” Details on Hill’s potential involvement are sketchy.
