Upcoming releases include the psychological thriller “The Gift” with Jason Bateman and Joel Edgerton; “The Secret in Their Eyes,” a remake of the Oscar-winning Argentinian film of the same name to star Julia Roberts; and “The Free State of Jones,” an action-drama starring Matthew McConaughey.

Amos most recently served as VP of distribution at alternative content company Fathom Events.

Marketing has been a key selling point of Stx Entertainment.
The newly launched studio plans to break through the clutter and shoulder out more established players by selling its pictures in a more innovative fashion. To that end, it has announced a lineup of marketing executives. The quartet includes marketing and strategic communications veteran Terry Curtin, creative advertising and branding executive Keri Moore, media and marketing executive Amy Elkins, and global digital marketing executive Andrew Runyon. They will report to theatrical marketing president Jack Pan.
Marketing is clearly key for Stx founder Robert Simonds. He has tapped Oren Aviv, a former marketing exec at Disney and Fox, as president and chief content officer, as well as Adam Fogelson, the former Universal Pictures chief who rose through the marketing ranks, to oversee the film slate.

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 »

Maybe the second most anticipated movie of the summer is Jurassic World, in part because Hollywood’s newest, biggest star, Chris Pratt, gets the chance to headline yet another blockbuster. But if you watched the trailer some weeks ago, you might’ve noticed how grim, self-serious and decidedly not Andy Dwyer/Starlord-esque charming and funny Pratt’s character was.
The first sigh of relief came this week when the first clip for the film was released this week, which you can watch above. Pratt is playfully flirting with Bryce Dallas-Howard in the scene, hinting at why the two of them never had a second date. Charming and funny? Maybe. Badly written? Arguably. Cliche? Probably. But is it sexist?

There are few better snapshots of the energy and new direction of Latin American cinema than Argentina’s Buenos Aires Lab (Bal), which showcases regional films in post-production. The lab, which unspools April 17-19, is a key ingredient of Buenos Aires’ Bafici Festival.
The revolution that lifted off when Pablo Trapero screened his debut, “Crane World,” at the first Bafici in 1999 just hasn’t stopped, notes Bal co-founder/director Ilse Hughan. Indeed, American audiences got a taste of the continuing celluloid revolution with the 2009 foreign-language Oscar winner “The Secret in Their Eyes,” now being remade by Billy Ray with Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and recently with the Oscar-nommed “Wild Tales.”
Launching in 2003 as Latin America’s first works-in-progress showcase, Bal worked very early on with European festivals as a pioneering platform for Latin American cinema, says Hughan. In 2012, it teamed with the Cannes Film Market to launch »

Julia Roberts is unloading her Hanalei, Hawaii estate to the tune of $29.85 million—and it's a big mansion. Huge. The sprawling 3,792-square-foot property, nicknamed "The Faye Estate," has belonged to Roberts since she bought it for $13.4 million in 2011, as Zillow reports. Built in 1946, the home features seven bedrooms, four full bathrooms and is surrounded by as much as 9,000-square-feet of room for additional building, should the new owner feel so obliged to renovate. And beach-lovers with $30 million to drop, rejoice: The property sits atop a 200-foot stretch of the picturesque Hanalei Bay. Roberts was in good company in Hanalei: Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and cult film legend Chuck »
