And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

He’s been tapped as “the next Tom Hardy” but Jack O’Connell is storming out on his own in his rise from UK TV star to in-demand lead actor.

After turning heads in Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and tough prison drama Starred Up, O’Connell is running for his life in the historical thriller ’71.  O’Connell stars as Gary, a British soldier who inadvertently gets left behind by his patrol unit on the streets of Belfast during a deadly riot.  Left on his own, the young Gary must navigate the dangerous streets in an attempt to make it back to his base alive.

Film Face-off: 'District 9' vs. 'Chappie'

9 March 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Aliens and robots have overrun the city of Johannesburg, South Africa. First it was the aliens (District 9) and now it's the robots (Chappie). Depending on how you look at it, we have one man and one muse to thank and/or blame. Neill Blomkamp is the writer/director of both films, and his main man is Sharlto Copley. And if you've never seen Blomkamp's work, Copley is the man who keeps butchering the pronunciation of Maleficent in the film Maleficent. The critics' consensus is that District 9 was better than Blomkamp's second effort, Elysium, even though the second one offered us Matt Damon along with Jodie Foster and her weird accent. So, does Blomkamp bounce back with Chappie or continue his downward trend? We're glad we asked that question, because that...

'American Ultra' Stars Stewart and Eisenberg Reportedly Join Allen's Next Film Project

9 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

American Ultra stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg will be reunited later this year in another project: Woody Allen's next as yet untitled feature. Bruce Willis is the third cast member whose name has been publicly announced. The source for this information is an "exclusive" report via Deadline.com's Mike Fleming Jr. So far, as Fleming explains in his brief piece, Woody Allen and "his people" haven't confirmed the casting. In other words, things could change in the not-too-distant future. See also: Kristen Stewart Joins Kelly Reichardt Movie Project, also featuring Laura Dern and Michelle Williams. Unsurprisingly, no plot details about the upcoming Woody Allen project have been forthcoming. In fact, one wonders if Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and Bruce Willis – in case they have indeed joined the fold – know what the movie is going to be about. Allen's latest collaborators – Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson – will be producing the film. »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Early Look at 43 Movies Vying for Best Picture

9 March 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As always, March is too early to get any kind of firm grasp on what will or won't be an Oscar contender come the end of the year, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun to speculate. Last year, only two of the nine films I predicted out of the gates actually ended up receiving Best Picture nominations at the 2015 Oscars -- Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel -- which goes to show just how much we know in advance. In fact, looking at the films I had on the outside looking in, only Best Picture winner Birdman was listed. But hey, at least I had three of the top contenders in the early year conversation, that's something... rightc When it comes to this year, I feel even less certain than I did last year. I'm not sure that's saying a whole lot since only two of the 43 films on »

THR has just announced that Jeremy Renner will be joining Amy Adams in Story Of Your Life. The film, which is being written by Eric Heisserer, is based on a short story by Hugo and Nebula award winning author Ted Chiang. The synopsis is intriguing and reminds me a bit of Jodie Foster's Contact for whatever reason. The story »

Follow My Lead: Top Ten Mentors in the Movies

6 March 2015 8:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We all would like to believe that we have that someone special to look up to for guidance and direction. From time to time we practice the art of worship for the mentor that appears larger than life to us. Whether our designated mentors that we choose to follow are inspirational or insidious it does not matter because that yearning to follow in their footsteps are so great that we blindly give anything to replicate that original blueprint.

Maybe if one dreams of being a famous astronaut you designate Neii Armstrong or John Glenn as your mentoring heroes? Perhaps your foray into film criticism was ignited by Judith Crist, Vincent Canby or Siskel & Ebert? How about emulating your favorite actor or singer and following their paths to success?

In Follow My Lead: Top Ten Mentors in the Movies we will look at some movie characters that served as  mentors to »

Giancarlo Esposito, George Clooney & Julia Roberts All Set For Thriller, Money Monster

6 March 2015 1:43 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jodie Foster has started production on her new film as director, the hostage thriller Money Monster. According to Deadline, it’s about what happens when a TV financial pundit and stock tip advisor is held at gunpoint, and the captor threatens to kill him if the broadcast is stopped. This means the whole world gets to watch as the stand-off plays out.

Clooney is playing the victim; Roberts is the producer of his show – also called Money Monster – and apparently a love interest; now Giancarlo Esposito is joining in as the NYPD lead office in charge of defusing the situation.

Also in the cast are Christopher Denham, Caitriona Balfe and Jack O’Connell as the gunman.

Without wanting to give too much away, there’s a lot in Money Monster that hits a nerve. It’s a topical story, and would probably pass for satirical too if it were less about tension and suspense. »

Chappie | Review

iRobot: Blomkamp’s Latest Sentimentally Inclined Sci-Fi is Pleasantly Familiar

Sentient technological constructs and expanding the definition of what constitutes the essence of consciousness as it applies to the essence of humanity is at the core of Neill Blomkamp’s latest feature, Chappie, so named for the eponymous, experimentally self-aware robot at the heart of his narrative. It is almost impossible to discuss the film without acknowledging many of its derivative elements, namely the film’s striking similarity to RoboCop (either version) and the family friendly sentiments of Short Circuit, and because of this, the film’s larger ideas feel too familiar, which undercuts Blomkamp’s ability to truly reach the poignant potential of the material.

There are a handful of emotionally rewarding sequences, but Blomkamp’s attentions are saturated by the film’s innovative protagonist to such a degree that most of the supporting players are reduced to archetypes, »

Giancarlo Esposito Boards Jodie Foster’s Money Monster

5 March 2015 2:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Giancarlo Esposito, known by Breaking Bad fans as the villainous Gus Fring, is continuing his transition into big-screen features with TriStar’s next star-studded drama. Directed by Jodie Foster, Money Monster has slowly been collecting A-listers to populate what’s expected to be a serious awards contender.

Written by Jim Kouf, Alan Difiore and Jamie Linden, the film delves into the world of insider trading through gregarious television personality Lee Gates (George Clooney). On his show, Money Monster, he offers stock market hints and tips to members of the public and miscalculates an estimate – causing stock to plummet. One member of the public whom is extremely dissatisfied with Gates’ behavior storms the TV studio with a gun in tow. The disgruntled man, Kyle Budwell – thought to be played by Unbroken‘s Jack O’Connell – holds Gates at gunpoint, demanding that he enforce a profitable stock rise by the end of the day, »
