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. »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Nicole Kidman to return to West End after 17 years

24 April 2015 3:59 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Nicole Kidman is to return to the West End for the first time in 17 years to honour the memory of her late father. The 'Paddington' actress will star in a play about scientists discovering the ''secret of life'' in honour of Dr. Anthony Kidman, who died suddenly in September last year. Before his tragic death, Nicole had asked her father if she should star in the play. Recalling their conversation, she said: ''My dad was a biochemist and he knew all about Rosalind Franklin. ''When I told him I was thinking about doing it, he was very excited. Then my dad passed away last September. I went, 'Alright, I need to do this for my father.''' The 47-year-old actress is to portray pioneering DNA researcher Rosalind Franklin in 'Photograph 51', which will run for 11 weeks from September 2015. And Nicole is also keen to star in that particular »

Here's Everything Wrong With Batman Forever In One Handy Video

23 April 2015 2:55 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As often bemoaned, the series of Batman films started by Tim Burton's 1989 effort went out in the late 1990's as a kitschy pastel calamity. 1995.s Batman Forever was the beginning of this downhill slide for the once-magnificent movie series. Now, closing in on the 20th anniversary of the film.s release, Cinema Sins gives you 167 reasons why. Giving Batman Forever a thorough comb-through, Cinema Sins surprisingly gives star Val Kilmer a bit of a pass. However, they not only point out the obvious flaws of the film, like its vacuous vixen of a leading lady played by Nicole Kidman, and the unnecessary, lackluster levity, but they also point out some interesting minor plot holes and anachronisms, giving you even more excuses to hate the film. The video properly grills the ludicrous flick that gave us Bat butt implants and took the brilliant cityscape designs of Burton.s Gotham City »

Russell Crowe Reveals He Looked Into Scientology When He Became Pals With Tom Cruise

22 April 2015 2:43 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Russell Crowe never ended up joining the Church of Scientology, but he reveals there was a time when it was a possibility. The actor explains that during a time when he was hanging out with Tom Cruise and then-wife Nicole Kidman, Crowe became intrigued with the religion and started looking into it. "From a young kid, I was quite interested in religion," the Oscar-winning actor, whose parents chose not to baptize him so that he could explore his own beliefs, tells People magazine. "When I met Tom Cruise when he was married to [fellow Aussie] Nicole [Kidman], we were spending a bit of time together so I thought I'd find out a little bit about what he was into." So the actor began »

'Strangerland', 'A Pigeon Sat on a Branch' & Ian McKellen's 'Mr. Holmes' in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

22 April 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Hardly an exhilarating MPAA ratings bulletin today as it does include Joe Dante's Burying the Ex starring Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene and Alexandra Daddario and Jon Watts' Cop Car starring Kevin Bacon and Shea Whigham, but I'm having a hard time getting too excited for either of those. We also have Strangerland starring Nicole Kidman, Joseph Fiennes and Hugo Weaving, which played the Sundance Film Festival and received some high marks and was picked up by Alchemy for release later this year. There is good word buzzing about Roy Andersson's A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence and the response to Bill Condon's Mr. Holmes, featuring Ian McKellen as an aging Sherlock Holmes, seems to be pleasant enough, but there isn't much here to get the blood moving. The complete bulletin is listed below. Burying the Ex Rated R For sexual content, partial nudity, »

21 April 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Cannes: Qed Holdings CEOs Sasha Shapiro and Anton Lessine have engaged Fortitude International to sell their slate that includes Rock The Kasbah and The Family Fang.

Nadine de Barros will commence talks with buyers on the Croisette after she and her Fortitude partners Robert Ogden Barnum and Daniel Wagner struck the deal with Qed Holdings.

The latter’s sales operation was severely compromised following the departure of Qed International founder Bill Block and sales John Friedberg. Shapiro and Lessine are involved in litigation with Block.

Qed International’s Cannes office will be operational as Shapiro, Lessine and director of legal and business affairs Alex Davis meet partners and distributors and join de Barros in strategic sales meetings.

23 specially-shot movie teaser trailers

21 April 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Psycho to Jurassic Park, here are 23 teaser trailers that don't show a frame of footage from the movies they're advertising...

These days, we're used to the marketing hype for a major film building up about two years ahead of release. Visitors to Comic-Con got a preview of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, for example, more than two years ahead of its due date. Our collective hunger for a first look at major forthcoming films is such that, it seems, studios are keen to show off their work-in-progress earlier and earlier.

But there are ways of teasing a forthcoming movie without showing a frame of the finished product, which is where the following list comes in. They're all examples of promos that manage to get across the flavour of a future film without going into story details. Some of them were made before a foot of celluloid was exposed, »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Dirty Weekend’

20 April 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There was a time when a Neil Labute film titled “Dirty Weekend” might have promised a veritable buffet of social and sexual provocations, but middle-aged perspective and a handful of semi-mainstream missteps have arguably tempered the erstwhile enfant terrible. As it is, things get more dusty than dirty in this minor-key comedy of desire and denial, in which a pair of business-trip associates (Matthew Broderick and Alice Eve) platonically test each other’s boundaries over the course of a one-day layover in Albuquerque. Airless visual treatment and mannered performances compound the impression that Labute might have been better off saving this material for the stage, though it’d be a pretty tame trifle in either context. Commercial prospects exceed those of his previous pic, the Eve-starring “Some Velvet Morning,” but only just.

The Golden Compass: what went wrong?

20 April 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With fantasy franchises having been so popular in recent years, why did Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series stop before it got going?

A much beloved trilogy of fantasy novels, Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials was much praised for its rich, imaginative fantasy world, nuanced and ambiguous characters and powerful anti-religious themes. Critically acclaimed, award-laden bestsellers with a young heroine in the form of Lyra Bellacqua, the trilogy seemed an obvious choice to follow Harry Potter and Lord Of The Rings and become a blockbuster movie series.

New Line bought the rights after bringing Lord Of The Rings to the screen, hoping for a similar success. The two stories are very different High Fantasies though, and The Golden Compass contains concepts less familiar to audiences than wizards, monsters and swordplay. His Dark Materials was also occasionally categorised in shops as a children’s book, unlike Lord Of The Rings. »

13 April 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

A female director will open the festival for the first time in nearly 30 years.

Standing Tall (La Tête Haute), a film by French director Emmanuelle Bercot, is to open the 68th Cannes Film Festival on May 13.

It marks the first time a film by a female director has opened the festival since Diane KurysA Man in Love in 1987.

Standing Tall stars Catherine Deneuve, Benoît Magimel, Sara Forestier and Rod Paradot, who plays the main character, juvenile delinquent Malony, following his upbringing from childhood to adulthood, as a children’s judge and social worker try to save him.

It was filmed in the Nord-Pas de Calais, Rhône-Alpes and Paris.

Surprising

“The choice of this film may seem surprising, given the rules generally applied to the Festival de Cannes opening ceremony,” said Thierry Frémaux, general delegate of the festival.

This reference to a “surprising” choice likely refers to the recent run of star-powered openers including Woody Allen’s [link »

Cannes: Femme to the fore by Richard Mowe - 2015-04-13 18:00:29

13 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

For only the second time in the Cannes Film Festival’s 68 years the opening choice will be by a woman film-maker – French director Emmanuelle Bercot and her latest offering La Tête Haute (literally Head Held High).

Historic occasion: Emmanuelle Bercot is only the second female film-maker to open the Cannes Film Festival

The film follows the education of a young delinquent from childhood to adolescence and his relationship with an educationalist who tries to save him from himself.

The film fields a strong cast of Catherine Deneuve, Benoît Magimel, Sara Forestier, and Rod Paradot who plays the young lead. Bercot had worked previously with Deneuve (who plays a juvenile court judge) in On My Way (Elle S’en Va).

After last year’s lacklustre but high profile Grace Of Monaco with Nicole Kidman, artistic director Thierry Fremaux admits the choice may surprise some observers given the usual criteria surrounding the launch title. »

The Callow Way – The Death Of The Theatrical Premiere?

12 April 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway looks at the changing face of how films are released…

This week, two unrelated stories seemed like they could herald the end of films debuting in the cinema. First there was the news that Ricky Gervais’s new film, Special Correspondents, his third as director, would get its premiere on Netflix. This was closely followed by the news that Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman and the film that opened last years Cannes Film Festival, would not be released in Us cinemas, but would instead be shown on Lifetime, the channel best known for such classics as The Craigslist Killer and Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal.

Netflix have begun to revolutionise how we watch TV shows, and are gaining real success with producing their own shows, but moving into feature films seems like it could be a game changer; we still expect our movies to »

Outlander Recap: Frenemies

The bagpipes of the credits fade out and within ten seconds we have nipple. Within 30 seconds we have realization that Jamie’s very red hair is between Claire’s very white thighs, and within a minute we have — well, the beginnings of an orgasm, anyway, interrupted by vociferous knocking at the door. Holy coitus interruptus, Batman!The news important enough to make Jamie get dressed for is that the Duke of Sandringham is coming. (Well, at least someone is!) Jamie is excited, Claire full of foreboding. Sounding a lot like Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge, she warns Jamie not to trust “the duke.” Are there any not-evil dukes? One wonders. “A friend of Jack Randall’s can be no friend of yours,” says Claire. But Jamie is too excited by potentially getting a pardon and getting to go home to his estate, Lollybroch. Jamie consults Ned Gowan, the lawyer, and »

Chiwetel Ejiofor: ‘I was a kid with a funny name. People said acting would be difficult’

11 April 2015 12:24 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

What do you do after an Oscar nomination and a raft of Hollywood offers? You go home to star in a 500-year-old play about death, of course. Chiwetel Ejiofor talks fame, race and childhood trauma

Punctual to the minute, Chiwetel Ejiofor walks towards the pub where we’ve arranged to meet, wearing a long, wind-ballooned overcoat, his takeaway coffee thrust out like a compass. The actor ploughs right by – gets a couple of crossings down the road before I can catch him and lead him back. He got confused, Ejiofor explains, because he knew this pub when it had a different name. It’s one of those places that’s always being emptied out and painted differently, given a new identity on a proprietor’s whim, subject to the kind of perpetual reinvention that an actor, more than most, might appreciate. Ejiofor is between characters this week, and a bit stressed about it. »
