23 July 2015 4:20 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In the midst of shrinking, laser blasts and ants doing unusual tasks, Marvel.s Ant-Man gave audiences a very special visual effect within the opening minutes of the film: a de-aged Michael Douglas. When Ant-Man opens in 1989, fans watch as the younger Hank gets into an argument with the S.H.I.E.L.D. officials who tried to recreate his shrinking formula, and Douglas looks almost exactly as he truly did in the late .80s. Director Peyton Reed previously described this effect as "terrifying," and now the process of how they made the 70 year old Douglas look around 45 has been revealed. Trent Claus, a "visual cosmetics" specialist at Lola VFX, explained to Vulture how his company accomplished Ant-Man.s de-aging feat. Lola started their de-aging work with 2006.s X-Men: The Last Stand, but gained notoriety for their work on Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.s characters in 2008.s The »

Time to celebrate, Terrence Malick fans: the prolific director's long-awaited film Knight of Cups finally has a release date. According the The Hollywood Reporter, the film will hit theaters March 4, 2016 by way of upstart film distributor Broad Green Pictures. The first time we reported on Knight of Cups was back in November of 2011, and ever since then fans of the reclusive director have been clamoring to see the film. The first trailer dropped back in December, and after receiving a rating shortly thereafter, a detailed synopsis was released ahead of the film's premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February. Malick has his detractors, and I think I count as one of them. While I like The Thin Red Line it took me more than a handful of attempts to finally get through Days of Heaven, and I think the only reasons I enjoyed The Tree of Life are the »

How Did 'Ant-Man' De-Age Michael Douglas?

22 July 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The opening scene of Marvel's Ant-Man features a scene from several decades earlier, where Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is seen meeting with Howard Stark (John Slattery) and Mitchell Carson (Martin Donovan) to resign from S.H.I.E.L.D. in the year 1989. This meeting helps set in motion the primary, present-day story, but those who have seen the superhero movie in theaters may still be scratching their heads over how young Michael Douglas looked in this scene. Vulture spoke with one of the men responsible for this "de-aging" process, Trent Claus, whose company Lola VFX specializes in "visual cosmetics" that can make any actor, "older, younger, thinner [or] fatter."

Lola VFX was put on the map from their work in David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, where they "de-aged" Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett's characters. They also created the much skinnier version of Chris Evans' »

Cate Blanchett Directing Stateless

21 July 2015 10:09 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While TV has consistently been luring actors to commit to miniseries or other projects, usually it has been to appear in front of the camera. Cate Blanchett is taking a different approach, developing and directing Stateless as a new drama. The series, which has Elise McCredie on board to provide the script, is inspired by the true story of Cornelia Rau, a young German/Australian woman and former Qantas air steward who joined a cult in Sydney called Kenja Communication in 1998. After escaping the cult, her traumatic experience wasn’t over, as she was held at the Baxter detention centre in South Australia, accused of being an illegal immigrant and subjected to psychiatric evaluation. According to the press release that Deadline picked up from Screen Australia, the story will hit on themes of “identity, belonging and the extraordinary lengths people will go to find their place in the world.” It »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actress

21 July 2015 7:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Rooney Mara surprised many by taking home the Best Actress prize at Cannes, as many thought her co-star Cate Blanchett would take it -- or the two would share. Whether we like it or not, the moment marked the beginning of Mara's campaign for a second Oscar nomination (and potential win) for Todd Haynes' "Carol." It's just a matter of whether The Weinstein Company will campaign them both in lead, or place Mara in supporting. The latter seems more like Harvey, and if that's the case we can pretty much guarantee that one of the category's five slots will go to Mara. Who joins her? That depends on how big, small or good dozens of hopefuls' roles are in films we -- in some cases -- won't see until November. The mighty likes of Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Laura Linney, Jennifer Jason Leigh, »

Cate Blanchett To Direct Aussie TV Series 'Stateless'

21 July 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Cate Blanchett has been looking to bring her talents behind the camera. In 2013 she signed up to make her feature directorial debut with the Oren Moverman penned adaptation of  Herman Koch's acclaimed novel "The Dinner," and while that's still in development, there hasn't been much movement on it. But it seems television is providing the creative foundation for Blanchett to open up her director's chair. The actress has just received development funding from Screen Australia for "Stateless," an Australian TV series she will direct. Elise McCreadie is penning the script that will tell the true story of Cornelia Rau, a woman suffering from mental illness who escaped the clutches of a cult, only to become caught up in Australia's legal system, suspected of being an illegal immigrant. No other details in terms of episode length or even if Blanchett will take a role, but the wheels are certainly moving. »
