How a Devastating Fire Inspired Keith Urban to Want to Give Back

9 February 2016 12:25 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Being the victim of a childhood house fire has been Keith Urban's inspiration for a lifetime of paying it forward, and on Monday, that generosity was rewarded with the Country Radio Broadcasters’ 2016 Artist Humanitarian Award. During the award presentation, Urban told how his family home in Caboolture, Australia, burned to the ground when he was 9 years old, about a year after his parents had joined a country music club in nearby Brisbane. "We were all okay, but we lost all our belongings, which wasn't much, but it was everything we had," Urban, 48, recalled. "And without hesitation, our country music »

Berlin: Variety Critics Pick Their Festival Wish Lists

9 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Berlin Film Festival’s competition, Forum, Panorama and Generation sections program a cornucopia of films from all over the world — so it was a tough task for Variety’s chief international critic Peter Debruge and critic Guy Lodge to narrow down their Berlinale wish lists to a handful of features.

Peter Debruge

Genius

Competition

In literature as in film, the editor is often the unsung hero, and few have had a greater impact on 20th century letters than Max Perkins (played by Colin Firth), who wrangled such literary lions as F. Scott Fitzgerald (Guy Pearce), Ernest Hemingway (Dominic West) and Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law). Incidentally, Michael Grandage’s directorial debut is edited by Oscar winner Chris Dickens. As Berlin-launched biopics go, here’s hoping it’s better than last year’s “Life.”

Out of Competition

Weinsteins closing in on 'Mary Magdalene'

9 February 2016 9:21 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The company is reportedly finalising a North American rights deal for the Biblical era biopic that would see it partner once again with See-Saw Films.

As ScreenDaily reported exclusively, Rooney Mara is in the frame to star for director Garth Davis as the misunderstood devoted follower of Jesus Christ.

Were Mara to commit to Mary Magdalene and The Weinstein Company come on as distributor it would mark a major reunion with London-based See-Saw Films and Davis.

The parties are all involved in Lion, an awards bait drama that the Weinsteins will distribute later this year and also stars Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman.

Universal Pictures International Productions partners with See-Saw on Mary Magdalene and Universal will distribute in all international territories except Australia and New Zealand, where Transmission handle rights. Film4 developed the project with See-Saw.

The Weinstein Company and See-Saw collaborated on Macbeth and famously began their association with Oscar winner The King’s Speech.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Spectre"

Take Bond -- James Bond -- home with you on February 9 with the DVD, Blu-ray, and On Demand release of "Spectre." You know 007 does not do "small" and the discs come with a worthy amount of extras.

Strangerland Review

7 February 2016 5:27 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Listen to our interview with Strangerland writer Michael Kinirons here. An Irish/Australian co-production, Strangerland uses the breathtaking vistas of the Australian outback (brought to life beautifully by cinematographer P.J. Dillon) as the backdrop for the tale of the Parker family, who have had to relocate to a remote desert town because of 15 year old daughter Lily’s (Madison Brown) illicit relationship with a teacher. Mother Katherine (Nicole Kidman), father Matthew (Joseph Fiennes), and even her brother Tom (Nicholas Hamilton) have grown to resent Lily, and each other, for leaving their home, especially as she hasn’t changed her sexually promiscuous ways. When both Lily and Tom go missing on the eve of a massive dust storm, a search begins, bringing in Hugo Weaving’s pessimistic detective David Rae, which pushes Katherine and Matthew’s already strained relationship to breaking point. The central performances of Kidman, Fiennes, and Weaving are the heart and soul of. »

Regression Is a Disappointing Genre Exercise From the Great Alejandro Amenabar

6 February 2016 2:01 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Hey, remember Alejandro Amenabar? For certain viewers, the Spanish director seemed well on his way to becoming one of the great saviors of genre cinema in the late 1990s and early 2000s — the kind of guy who could take otherwise tired horror and science-fiction concepts and give them new life. His breakthrough 1997 hit Open Your Eyes (remade — inferiorly — by Cameron Crowe as Vanilla Sky), offered a mind-fuck psychological sci-fi thriller that was actually moving and not cheap and manipulative. His Nicole Kidman–starring classic The Others was the rare big-twist horror hit that actually improved upon second viewing. Later, the stylized quadriplegic drama The Sea Inside won an Oscar and firmly established Javier Bardem as one of the finest actors of his generation. His last film was 2009’s Agora, an expensive historical drama that dared to suggest the ancient world’s shift towards Christianity wasn’t necessarily the greatest thing »

Colette vs. Mary Magdalene

5 February 2016 8:39 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Here's Murtada speculating very early on the 2017 Oscar race.

There’s usually a real life person in the best actress lineup. It’s not as prevalent as it is in best actor - 4 this year. But we do have Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence). Last year there were Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones) and Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon). Recently we got everyone from Philomena Lee (Judi Dench) to Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Edith Piaf (Marion Cotillard) and most famously The Queen (Helen Mirren) and her 80s nemesis Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep). Now we have two more possible candidates for the 2017 Oscar race as two interesting biopics were announced this week with two actresses well known to the Academy. French writer Colette (to be played by Keira Knightley) and Jesus disciple Mary Magdalene (Rooney Mara). 

Colette in 1920s

Colette is the more intriguing figure, at least to this non-believer. Born in 1873 she was a journalist, »

Tom Cruise's Daughter, Isabella, Makes First Official Appearance Since Her Wedding, Hides Her Ring

4 February 2016 11:02 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's eldest child, Isabella Cruise, made her first official appearance after tying the knot with Max Parker in September. Isabella attended the "Tyler Shields: Decadence" exhibition at the Maddox Gallery in London on Wednesday, rocking a platinum blonde 'do with an all-black ensemble. Noticeably hidden, though? Her wedding ring! The celeb offspring—who Tom and Nicole adopted in 1992—kept her hands in her pockets as she posed for pictures, perhaps to avoid the sparkler taking attention away from the exhibit. Meanwhile, Isabella and Parker reportedly wed on Sept. 18 in a super-secret ceremony at the The Dorchester Hotel in Central London. Though it was »

She dressed casually for the outing, wearing an all-black ensemble and sporting bleached-blond hair. But while she posed for pictures on the red carpet, »

1 February 2016 9:47 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Riverstone Pictures has closed financing on Stanley Tucci’s drama “Final Portrait,” starring Armie Hammer and Geoffrey Rush.

The film, which begins production later this month, focuses on the end of Swiss painter and sculptor Alberto Giacometti’s life.

Giacometti died in 1966 in Switzerland. He’s best remembered for his stark and surrealistic sculptures.

Producers are Gail Egan for Potboiler alongside Nik Bower for Riverstone Pictures and Ilann Girard. Deepak Nayar is an executive producer and the film is produced in association with Olive Productions, Lowsun Productions and Arsam International.
