Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

7 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

The 83rd Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

20 March 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

After a brief delay, this series has returned. Yes, once again I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright then, here goes nothing folks…behold my picks: Best Picture – The Social Network The nominees here for this ceremony were 127 Hours, Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, »

Revolution Buys Half the Rights to Natalie Portman’s ‘Black Swan’

18 March 2015 4:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Revolution Studios has bought 50% of the rights to 2010’s “Black Swan” from Cross Creek Pictures for an undisclosed price.

The thriller, starring Oscar winner Natalie Portman, grossed $329 million at the worldwide box office. Worldwide distribution rights continue to be controlled by Fox Searchlight, which co-financed and owns the remaining 50% share.

“The opportunity to acquire a stake in a major film of this caliber doesn’t come along every day,” said Revolution Studios chief operating officer Scott Hemming.

Revolution bought the 64-title Morgan Creek international library in October for $36.75 million, including “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and its sequel, “The Last of the Mohicans,” “Young Guns,” the “Major League” franchise and “The Whole Nine Yards.”

Revolution Studios, founded by Joe Roth in 2000, was acquired in June by Fortress Investment Group, which manages $60 billion in assets.

You'll Get "Starry Eyes" For Essoe

17 March 2015 9:18 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Making it in show business is often portrayed as a task so difficult, one has to embrace one’s demons and throw away one’s inhibitions in order to succeed. It’s a good thing I’m not planning on getting famous any time soon, because apparently that is only possible via some sort of freaky Faustian bargain. One memorable example is Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, in which Natalie Portman’s wannabe prima ballerina has to hallucinate and stab herself with glass before reaching the pinnacle of her talent. From what I can gather, being a great artist must be a living nightmare.

How Rihanna's Fame Added Pressure for Her to Perform in DreamWorks' 'Home'

16 March 2015 6:23 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Rihanna has won GRAMMYs and sold out arenas, but when she stepped into the booth to record for DreamWorks' animated film Home, she didn't know what to expect.

News: Rihanna Is the New Face of Dior

In a sit-down with Et's Kevin Frazier, the "FourFiveSeconds" singer admitted that she was nervous recording voice-overs for the movie, out March 27.

"You don't want to just get the job because you're famous," Rihanna said. "[I want to do] something that Dreamworks can really stand behind and not something that they will say, 'Ok, we should have thought this over.'"

The movie follows Oh (voiced by Jim Parsons), a loveable extraterrestrial who lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people. On his journey, Oh forms a friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip (voiced by Rihanna). The movie also features the voices of Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez.

Natalie Portman channels Sofia Coppola

14 March 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Natalie Portman ''channels Sofia Coppola'' when directing. The 'Black Swan' actress has taken the helm on 'A Tale of Love and Darkness' and admits she finds it quite stressful, so tries to conduct herself in the same way as the 'Virgin Suicides' director, who she has previously worked with on Miss Dior campaigns. She said: ''Sofia is so talented and so calm and she really has a vision. ''I thought about her a lot when I was directing because she is just unflappable, so cool in any situation. ''So whenever I would feel myself getting stressed, I'd try and channel Sofia.'' Natalie is relishing life behind the camera because it gives her so much more control. She said: ''It's a lot of responsibility, but a wonderful opportunity to own your work at the end. ''When you make a film as an actor, whether it turns out good or bad, »

Rihanna Is the New Face of Dior, And Is the First Black Woman to Do So

13 March 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Rihanna is making history.

The 27-year-old superstar will star in Dior's fourth installment of their "Secret Garden" campaign -- a series featuring models posing in the palace of Versailles, clad in Dior creations -- the fashion house confirmed on Friday. She will be shot by famed photographer Steven Klein, with the film and print versions of the campaign scheduled to run this spring.

But as if being an official Dior girl wasn't amazing enough, Rihanna's highly anticipated campaign also marks the first time a black woman has been chosen to front the French fashion brand. Other celeb Dior spokeswomen include A-listers Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman and Marion Cotillard.

The Dior partnership particularly makes a lot of sense given that Rihanna is often a staple at the high-fashion brand's shows, always flawlessly dressed of course.

Video: Check Out Chris Hemsworth's Funny SNL Sketch Spoofing Avengers: Age Of Ultron

7 March 2015 10:24 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Chris Hemsworth hosted this week's Saturday Night Live show for the first time, and the Aussie actor did not disappoint viewers hoping he would slip into his Marvel role as the God of Thunder and  poke fun at his upcoming appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron. During the sketch inspired by the hotly-anticipated sequel, Thor hilariously celebrates Ultron's defeat with his fellow Avengers. At one point during the nearly four-minute sketch, the super amped Hemsworth gives a shoutout to Thor's evil half-brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), as well as his "ex" Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). The latter mention just might confirm previous rumors that Jane and Thor will have split up when Age of Ultron begins. Anyhow, check out the video (via ComicBook) below! What do you think? Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark »

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?

Steven Spielberg set to direct new Jennifer Lawrence movie

2 March 2015 10:51 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jennifer Lawence may take the lead in It's What I Do, based on the memoirs of a wartime photographer...

Here's a pair who haven't yet worked together. Steven Spielberg looks like he's set to direct a new movie starring Jennifer Lawerence. The project that currently has them both attached is It's What I Do: A Photographer's Life Of Love And War. That's unlikely to be the ultimate movie title, but it's the name of a memoir by Lynsey Addario.

Due for publication at the end of the month, the book tells the real-life story of war photographer Addario as she seeks to photograph modern battles, both before and after conflict strikes. Not only did she fight into a profession generally deemed to be male-dominated, she also has taken pictures of war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Darfur and the Congo. Her desire: to show the truth about war.

The film rights have landed with Warner Bros, »

J.Law, Spielberg Tackling War Photographer’s Memoir, It’s What I Do

2 March 2015 10:37 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Warner Bros. has bagged the rights to Lynsey Addario's memoir, It's What I Do, about her Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalism, Deadline reports. The deal — which reportedly had Reese Witherspoon, Darren Aronofsky, Natalie Portman, and the Weinstein Company, among other suitors, knocking at the door — has Steven Spielberg helming and Jennifer Lawrence starring. The latter Oscar-winning badass will play Addario, a combat journalist who, in the face of danger and kidnappings, captured unforgettable imagery from such war-torn areas as Libya, Afghanistan, and the Congo. (If you're already having stress daydreams about the imminent American Sniper–esque trailer for this, you're probably not alone.) »

2 March 2015 7:45 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Pairing Steven Spielberg and Jennifer Lawrence, the biggest A-list director and arguably the biggest A-list actress today, seems like a no-brainer no matter what they’re working on. But with a property as hot as Lynsey Addario’s memoir, It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, it’s got prestige and awards pedigree written all over it.

Deadline is reporting that Lawrence is attached to star in the Spielberg directed project for Warner Bros., and that the pair beat out other actresses bidding for the project from Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, Margot Robbie and from directors such as Darren Aronofsky and George Clooney.

Addario has taken photos for everyone from AP, New York Times, Time, National Geographic, and Newsweek, and she’s been to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Israel, and Libya, where she was kidnapped along with three other colleagues, to name just a few of »

Jennifer Lawrence And Steven Spielberg Circling War Memoir It’s What I Do At Warner Bros.

2 March 2015 5:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has snapped up rights to adapt It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, a memoir by Lynsey Addario that the studio has snagged Steven Spielberg to direct and Jennifer Lawrence to star in.

The project has been red-hot ever since an excerpt from It’s What I Do ran in The New York Times Magazine, and the recent media spotlight on the perils faced by war-zone reporters makes it extremely timely as well.

Addario is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist whose work took her to the most hostile regions on Earth. She reported out of Afghanistan following the U.S.’s invasion there, specifically centering on the human cost of conflict. Some of her stories centered on genocide victims in Darfur, Afghans under the Taliban’s thumb and victims of rape in the Congo. Perhaps the most compelling and harrowing chapter of Addario »
