24 April 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Lawrence was a first-time Best Actress Oscar nominee for her first major film role: a near-destitute, young Ozark woman looking for her missing drug-dealing father in Winter's Bone, Debra Granik's generally well-received indie drama. Winter's Bone also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini; based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell). Jennifer Lawrence's competitors in the Best Actress Oscar race were: Annette Bening for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Meryl Streep, Seth Rogen's 'XMas,' 'Spectre' top Sony Pictures CinemaCon sneak

24 April 2015 1:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - It's not an understatement to suggest that since they last presented their wares to the world's theater owners Sony Pictures has had a pretty dramatic 12 months .   December's North Korean hacking scandal made the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "The Interview" a global news story where the studio and exhibitors blamed each other for not screening the film in mainstream theaters.  And, frankly, when Potus gets involved there better be a lot of water under that bridge to put all that behind you.  Five months later Sony has a new Chairman (Tom Rothman) and, luckily, much better films to help heal some delicate wounds. The studio didn't have the star power to rival previous presenters Paramount and Warner Bros, but they did bring a lot of new footage and also made some news. First, let's get to the news. Sony revealed that a new "Jump »

Amal Clooney Goes Casual, Visits Husband George Clooney on Movie Set in Boyfriend Jeans, Biker Jacket

13 April 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Like most of us Amal Clooney appreciates a lazy Sunday ensemble. After weeks of high fashion the human-rights lawyer went full on weekend casual while visiting her husband George Clooney on the New York City set of his new movie, Money Monster. Clad in ripped, loose boyfriend jeans and an eyelet shirt topped with a leather Balenciaga biker jacket, the 37-year-old statement skipped heels in favor of Ash Thelma wedge sneakers. But her best accessory? It wasn't her fringe purse or oversize shades. Nope, the duo's adorable Cocker Spaniel pups were the winning part of this look.  While the couple was not seen interacting with the film's director Jodie Foster or George's co-stars Julia Roberts or »

George Clooney’s Smokehouse Pictures Acquires Film Rights to ‘Three Minutes to Doomsday’

12 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

George Clooney and Grant Heslov’s Smokehouse Pictures has picked up the film rights to Joe Navarro’s “Three Minutes to Doomsday.”

The book follows the FBI’s leading body language expert, Navarro, who was sent to track down Rod Ramsey to report on his knowledge or association with Clyde Lee Conrad, an U.S. Army officer who sold top-secret classified information to the People’s Republic of Hungary. It documents Navarro and Ramsey’s relationship and interviews against the backdrop of the Cold War.

Scribner, a division of Simon & Schuster, recently acquired North American rights for the book.

Howards Means, who collaborated with Robert Baer on “See No Evil” and “Sleeping With the Devil,” assisted Navarro in his writing. “Syriana,” for which Clooney won an Oscar, was based on Baer’s books.

Smokehouse most recently produced “August: Osage County,” starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, the Clooney-directed “Monuments Men »

11 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

“We could have been anything that we wanted to be,” sang the young cast of the 1976 movie Bugsy Malone. For some, it was a prophecy of sorts. Jodie Foster, who played gangster’s moll Tallulah, went on to become one of Hollywood’s most acclaimed actresses; several other cast members including Scott Baio, Dexter Fletcher and Bonnie Langford also achieved their share of fame. »

#Tbt: Kristen Stewart Through the Years

9 April 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Kristen Stewart has come a long way since she appeared alongside Jodie Foster in 2002's "Panic Room." The actress not only went on to star in the mega-successful "Twilight" saga, she also took on a slew of indies like "The Runaways" and "Still Alice" along the way. Stewart even recently became the first American actress to win a Cesar Award (the Cesars are the French equivalent to the Oscars, by the way) for her work in "Clouds of Sils Maria." Kristen turns 25 on April 9, and for this week's #Tbt we're looking back at pics of her life through the years in the spotlight...

Stewart 'in Talks' to Be Featured in Subversive Iraq War Homefront Satire

4 April 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Kristen Stewart, 'Camp X-Ray' star, to join cast of 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Kristen Stewart to join 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' movie After putting away her Bella Swan wig and red (formerly brown) contact lenses, Kristen Stewart has been making a number of interesting career choices. Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray. She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice. She was the personal assistant to troubled, aging actress Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a history-making Best Supporting Actress César. (Stewart became the first American actress to take home the French Academy Award. »

The 3 Actresses Silence Of The Lambs Almost Hired Instead Of Jodie Foster

1 April 2015 1:48 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As far the annals of horror thrillers are concerned, 1991.s The Silence of the Lambs has a firm place among the best of all time. However, a recent interview with the film.s director brings up the rather Starling.err, startling revelation that Jodie Foster was not the actress he initially had in mind for the lead role. In fact, she was not even close. In a fascinating interview at the Austin Film Festival with fellow filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson, The Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme discussed the casting process for the film.s main character, the young, fresh-from-Quantico FBI Agent Clarice Starling. It turns out that Jodie Foster was nowhere on Demme.s radar, as he had names like Meg Ryan, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Laura Dern on the short list in front of her. Yes, it may seem like blasphemy now.

'The Breakfast Club': Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy Look Back 30 Years Later (Exclusive)

31 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last week the Internet had a collective heart attack as it became apparent that the anniversary of the day that "The Breakfast Club" is supposed to take place happened 31 years earlier. Of course, "The Breakfast Club" is a movie and not a historical document (one that came out 30 years ago), but that doesn't matter. Because talking about John Hughes's immortal classic is fun and people will do it at every conceivable juncture.

"The Breakfast Club," of course, starred Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy, as a group of disparate teens united for a Saturday's worth of detention (Paul Gleason very memorably essayed the role of the meddling principle -- "I make over $30,000 a year!"). Recently, to celebrate the movie's anniversary and commemorate the newly released (and truly incredible deluxe edition Blu-ray package), the film held a pair of screenings in Austin, Texas, as »

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 »

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 »
