Cannes Film Festival 2014 reveals Federico Fellini 8½ inspired poster

15 April 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The poster for this year's Cannes Film Festival has been unveiled.

The design uses a picture from Federico Fellini's 1963 movie 8½, which starred Marcello Mastroianni and Claudia Cardinale and was presented in the Official Selection that year.

The poster was created by Hervé Chigioni and graphic designer Gilles Frappier for the 67th annual festival.

Speaking about creating it, Frappier said: "The way he looks at us above his black glasses draws us right in to a promise of global cinematographic happiness.

"The happiness of experiencing the Festival de Cannes together."

It was previously reported that Grace of Monaco, with Nicole Kidman in the title role, will open this year's Cannes Film Festival.

The Olivier Dahan-directed biopic of actress Grace Kelly was pulled from the release calendar in January following a continued dispute between Dahan and Harvey Weinstein.

It had already been delayed from November 2013 to March 2014, because of Dahan's »

"Artist And The Model" Asks You To Take A Side

28 March 2014 11:36 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Don't worry, he's a good man, but an artist.

A young Catalan girl, Mercè (Aida Folch), has escaped Franco's Spain and found herself in a cozy French town (occupied by the Nazis). Mercè is spotted by Léa (Claudia Cardinale) as a potential model for her husband Marc Cros (Jean Rochefort), a sculptor. In another film, this could well be the start of some very nefarious doings, but in The Artist and the Model (2013), things are exactly as advertised. The hungry refugee takes the job and, the next day, finds herself standing, au natural, moving at the direction of this remote, elderly artist. He gives little consolation or explanation to the young woman, single-mindedly searching for "an idea." He sketches, sculpts, and paints her in many poses, but never to his liking. The world around him is at war, but he stands in his safe little corner surrounded by naked women, »

50 Years in the Pink

20 March 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tim here, extending our unexpected and unplanned tribute to 50-year-old Peter Sellers movies by one day, following Diana’s lovely tribute to The World of Henry Orient. For today marks the 50th anniversary of the U.S. release of The Pink Panther, the arch-‘60s caper film that begat Sellers’ iconic Inspector Jacques Clouseau, the pratfall-prone Frenchman who remains the actor’s most famous character this side of a certain wheelchair-bound ex-Nazi (and Dr. Strangelove Also opened in 1964, which was just an all-around great year for Sellers).

The film itself is a fascinating relic, a by-turns hilarious and lumpy encapsulation of what European high society looked like as filtered through the comic sensibilities of Blake Edwards of Tulsa, Ok. Scenes of breathless physical comedy rub elbows with elegant caper film machinery and deadening longeurs as Claudia Cardinale rolls around on a tiger skin while suffering from a wobbly case of dubbing. »

Locarno Film Festival To Launch Retro Honoring Italy’s Titanus Studios

28 January 2014 4:49 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – The 67th Locarno Film Festival will pay homage to Italy’s storied Titanus studios, which churned out many works of Italian cinema’s golden era.

Established in 1904 by Gustavo Lombardo, Titanus was a true Italian major which during the 1960s forged a partnership with MGM. 

The vast Locarno retro will feature early works by Italo auteurs including Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti, Ermanno Olmi, Alberto Lattuada, and genre maestros like Mario Bava, Riccardo Freda, and Camillo Mastrocinque, spanning from the early postwar period through the late 1960s.

The selection of classics and more rarely seen pics will feature a wide array of late and living Italo stars, comprising Alberto Sordi, Marcello Mastroianni, Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida and Claudia Cardinale.

“The idea of telling the history of Italian cinema through it’s greatest ‘dream factory’ is directly connected to the festival’s re-reading of the past, which aims to sweep away »

Did the Academy 'Snub' Veterans Thompson and Hanks?

17 January 2014 4:26 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks ‘snubbed’: Oscar nominations 2014 (photo: Emma Thompson in ‘Saving Mr. Banks’) The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences uses the preferential voting system to select the nominees in the various Academy Award categories and — pre-1944, post-2009 — the Best Picture Oscar winners. When it comes to the nominations, that means an ardent minority has a good chance of selecting a nominee, whereas a widely popular — but not ardently popular — choice may be left out of the Oscar shortlist. Oscar 2014 non-nominees Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson likely had their names listed on numerous (perhaps even on a wide majority) of ballots; Hanks for Paul GreengrassCaptain Phillips, Thompson for John Lee Hancock’s Saving Mr. Banks. But if in most instances they weren’t listed at or very near the top, they’d have little chance of earning a nomination, especially if there was an — even »
