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

17 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, »

Lily James has performed her own version of the Cinderella song 'A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes'.

Richard Madden stars as Prince Charming, Cate Blanchett as Lady Tremaine and Helena Bonham-Carter as the Fairy Godmother.

Cinderella review: A warm, fleet-footed fairytale

25 March 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Kenneth Branagh; Screenwriter: Chris Weitz; Starring: Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter, Stellan Skarsgård; Running time: 105 mins; Certificate: U

On the surface of it, Disney's decision to frontload their updated live-action Cinderella with a brand new Frozen short looks like a bad move. A large part of Frozen's appeal with critics (if not with kids) was its subversive treatment of familiar storybook tropes like "true love's kiss", where Princess Elsa's relationship with her estranged sister became the central focus and romance was an afterthought. Surely attaching Frozen Fever could only emphasise how creaky and regressive the Cinderella story now looks.

But of course, Cinderella has endured for a reason. Director Kenneth Branagh has a steady handle on both the wonder and the humanity of the story, which was originally set to be adapted by Never Let Me Go's Mark Romanek. Though an intriguing prospect, Romanek's »

'Terminator Genisys': Will Matt Smith's Role Upset Fans?

24 March 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the weekend, Empire Magazine released new photos for Terminator Genisys, along with the magazine cover featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emilia Clarke. Today, Empire has released four more photos, along with new plot details from Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. If that's not enough, we also have another report which reportedly reveals the mysterious character that Matt Smith is playing. There will be Spoilers towards the end of this story, regarding Matt Smith's character, so read on at your own risk.

Terminator Genisys follows John Connor (Jason Clarke) as he sends his trusted soldier Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984, to protect his mother Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke). When Kyle goes back in time, it is not what he expected, with Sarah being protected by an "aging" T-800 Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) as they all go on a new mission to "reset" the future. Here's what Arnold Schwarzenegger had to say about »

Spoilers: Matt Smith's Terminator: Genisys Character Revealed

24 March 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Back when the cast members for Terminator: Genisys were being announced, the character Matt Smith was set to play wasn't named, and that's remained a secret... until now. All we had been told is that Smith would be playing "a new character with a strong connection to John Connor", but Latino Review received details from a test screening in Arizona and as well as reporting positive feedback from their source, they reveal the identity of the slightly ridiculous looking fella in the image above. Apparently Smith will be playing the main villain in the movie: a humanoid embodiment of Skynet. "In Terminator: Genisys Matt Smith plays the embodiment of Skynet. Similar to Helena Bonham Carter's role in McG's Terminator: Salvation, Smith will be the antagonist system given form, different from the nebulous corporate villainy of Terminator 2: Judgement Day and vague apocalypse technophobia of the first."

New Stills For Terminator: Genisys Land; Has Matt Smith’s Character Been Revealed?

24 March 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Between all of the trailers, stills and clips released as part of Paramount’s marketing hoopla for Terminator: Genisys, one question still remains: Who exactly is Matt Smith playing? When the former Doctor Who joined the cast last year, his announcement included one brief description that told us he would step into the shoes of “a new character with a strong connection to John Connor.”

For the rebooted prequel, Connor is played by Jason Clarke, his mother Sarah by Emilia Clarke, Kyle Reese by Jai Courtney and the iconic T-800 by Arnold Schwarzenegger. So far the main players have all been identified with the exception of Smith, whose role has been kept under wraps. Until very recently that is, as an audience member who attended an advance screening of the movie in Arizona dropped a major scoop to the folks at Latino Review.

‘Cinderella’ Press Conference As It Happened

23 March 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cinderella hits UK this Friday. A traditional take on the classic fairy tale, Kenneth Branagh directs Downton Abbey‘s Lily James as the titular heroine. The film is a true live adaptation of Disney‘s iconic cartoon and features a plethora of fine actors and actresses, most of them British. Kenneth Branagh’s name on the directors chair obviously helped get a few to sign the dotted line; the film stars Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Derek Jacobi and Stellan Skarsgard to name but a few.

Ahead of Cinderella’s cinematic release (which feature new Frozen short film Frozen Fever) we were invited to the luxurious Claridges to attend a very special press conference. We felt just like Cinderella as we walked through the historic building.  There were many questions that people were dying to ask, but we had but one – had Prince Kit not learned anything from Rob Stark’s marital choices? »

This week in TV news: The Academy hands down rulings on hourlong comedies

21 March 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following a ruling last month that the Television Academy would only consider half hour shows eligible for the comedy category at the Emmys, a panel of nine analysts have now begun handing down the rulings for exemptions in the selection process. The panel, which was set up to determine the category assignment of hour-long shows that appealed their placement in drama, has now ruled, as per Variety, that the Fox show Glee, the Showtime series Shameless, and the CW series Jane The Virgin can compete as comedies at the upcoming primetime Emmys. The decision will apply to all categories, from Acting to Directing, and so on.

One show that notably wasn’t granted a waiver, however, is the Netflix serial Orange Is The New Black. The series, which revolves around the inhabitants of a women’s prison, was categorised as a comedy at last year’s Primetime Emmys, where it picked up three wins. »

Richard Madden: 'I thought Cinderella role was for a pantomime'

20 March 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Richard Madden has said that he initially thought his Prince Charming role in Disney's new adaptation of Cinderella was a part in a pantomime.

The actor told Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on ITV's This Morning that he had misunderstood the offer and thought his agent had "gone soft".

"I got the email through and I thought, 'Oh God, am I going to do pantomime?'" he said. "There's nothing wrong with that, but I just thought, 'Is that what I'm doing next?'

"My agent had just had a baby and I thought he'd gone soft, but then I read it and thought, 'It's great!' And then (I was told) that Kenneth Branagh was directing and Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter were in it and I was like, 'Right, sold!'"

New Projects: Benghazi, Jesse Owens, and ‘Hail, Caesar!’

19 March 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The terrorist attack on the American Embassy in Benghazi so consumed the media and Washington that it’s bound to make good fiction. There’s potential for an on-the-ground action thriller, Zero Dark Thirty style, there’s potential for a thorny, political drama surrounding the ensuing scandal, and one can even look at the conspiracy theorist angle. And with that, Hollywood is racing to produce not one, not two, but three competing movies all about Benghazi.

Deadline reported Tuesday about one currently with a script in hand, Zero Footprint. Written by the team behind Immortals, Zero Footprint views the deaths of the consulate members and CIA operatives killed through the eyes of an ex-Special Forces operator.

“This about why it happened and the siege of the embassy is the last part of the third act. This is about everything that led up to that attack,” said Alcon Entertainment’s co-ceo Andrew Kosove via Deadline. »
