Main Street during The Telluride Film Festival
The Telluride Film Festival seemingly appears overnight against the gorgeous backdrop of rugged mountains. It lasts just four days but in fact it takes more than a month of intensive labor to transform the elementary school, high school, hockey rink, library, the park in the middle of town and a masonic temple into theaters. Now in its 41st year,up until recently this hallowed Labor Day weekend event has long been a quiet fixture on the festival circuit. As most of the festival world knows, the escalating word of mouth about the quality of Telluride’s unofficial premieres caused the Toronto International Film Festival to issue an ultimatum to those hoping to land choice spots in the fall line-up: if you choose to screen at Telluride first, your film will be pushed back on Tiff’s slate. Realistically- Toronto has little to fear from Telluride besides buzz. »

If you watch the trailer for The Theory Of Everything and feel nothing, watch it again you crazy heartless mad person.
To add to the slow-paced marketing for this title, which is the right way to do it, we’ve got a new poster that flips proceedings on their side and reflects the changes in circumstances to come. The Stephen Hawking biopic is directed by Man On Wire’s James Marsh and based on the memoir by Jane Hawking ‘Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen‘.
Starring Eddie Redmayne as the young astrophysicist and genius, it follows his love for Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones) at Cambridge and charters their beginnings, alongside the huge, earth-shattering diagnosis of motor neuron disease at 21 years-old. This extraordinary story looks like one set to pluck at the heartstrings but also feel so very real. I can’t wait for it, check out the poster below: »

One of the oddest tales this writer has ever reported on involves 1996’s box-office bomb The Island of Dr. Moreau, the third big-screen adaptation of H.G. Wells’ novel about a scientist who tries to turn animals into people. The movie was a passion project of director Richard Stanley who had made a splash with his debut movie, the sci-fi action film Hardware, and who assembled a remarkable cast for his Moreau, which included Val Kilmer, Marlon Brando, David Thewlis, Fairuza Balk, and Ron Perlman. After just a few days of principal photography, he was fired from the film and ultimately »

I finally got a chance to see Terry Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem and was mightily impressed by its ability to conjure some of the magic of Gilliam classics like Brazil and Twelve Monkeys (albeit in a far warmer, less brutal manner than the latter film). So I'm really glad we're debuting these character posters that don't just showcase the performers in the film, but the philosophies of the people they are playing. The movie is all about ideas, a philosophical dialogue. And these get at that. The Zero Theorem stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation; Melanie Thierry, Tilda Swinton, and David Thewlis also star. The film hits iTunes today, August 19th and limited theaters on September 19th. Be sure to check out the trailer and »

Ari Folman, visionary director of Waltz With Bashir, brings us a journey beyond imagination in his upcoming movie The Congress. Robin Wright (pictured above) plays a version of herself in this thought-provoking film, which merges live-action and colourful animation. To celebrate the release of The Congress today (our review is here), we take a look at some other movies which have embraced a live-action/animation mash-up.
1) Mary Poppins
Family favourite Mary Poppins delighted audiences when it first burst onto screens in 1964, and now 50 years later the magical tale continues to enchant a brand new generation of film fans. The hit adventure’s wonderful mix of live-action and fantasy animation was surely one of the elements which won it five Oscars at the 1965 Academy Awards, including Best Visual Effects.

Today, we primarily know Hawking as one of the greatest scientific minds of the past century, but every great thinker has their humble beginnings. The Theory of Everything begins with a school-aged Hawking, played by Eddie Redmayne(Les Miserables) who meets and falls in love with fellow Cambridge students Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones). The active and healthy young man soon has his world turned upside-down with the diagnosis of motor neuron disease at age 21.
