Toronto International Film Festival unveils first wave of films for 2014

22 July 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), which runs from September 4 to 14 this year, has announced its initial lineup of films. This is the first of a handful of announcements for the festival, and as always, the first announcement focuses on its Galas and Special Presentations -- the films with the flashiest names.

The initial slate of fifty-nine films includes thirty-seven world premieres, boasting those from Noah Baumbach,Lone Scherfig, and Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock. Premieres have been a contentious subject this year on the film festival circuit, as Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Tiff, threw down the gauntlet, announcing that the festival would not play a film in the first four days of its schedule if it was also programmed concurrently for the Telluride festival.

Whether or not this was the right move, Tiff has still managed to secure the films of Noah BaumbachDavid Cronenberg, Lone Scherfig, »

Frank Langella Will Be Captain Fantastic Alongside Viggo Mortensen

21 July 2014 5:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Some professionals can traverse the line between acting and directing with ease. One such individual is Matt Ross, who has excelled acting on TV shows like American Horror StoryMagic CitySilicon Valley and Big Love and sitting behind the camera on shorts (The Language of Love and Human Resources) and feature films (sexy Sundance drama 28 Hotel Rooms). Currently, Ross is taking on his biggest challenge to date, directing the drama Captain Fantastic. And now, we’ve learned that his cast, previously announced to be led by Viggo Mortensen, has added another huge talent, with word that Frank Langella has signed on.

No word yet on which part Langella will play, but Captain Fantastic centers on an idealistic father (Mortensen) who returns to society from living off the grid for a decade in the Pacific Northwest with his children. George MacKay, Annalise Basso, Samantha Isler, Aussie Nicholas Hamilton, Shree Crooks and Charlie Shotwell all co-star. »

Frank Langella joins Viggo Mortensen in Captain Fantastic

20 July 2014 1:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Deadline, Academy Award nominee Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon, Robot & Frank) has jumped on board the indie film Captain Fantastic, starring Lord of the Rings alum Viggo Mortensen.

Despite its name, Captain Fantastic has absolutely nothing to do with comic books or superheroes, but instead follows an idealistic father (Mortensen) who must assimilate his family back into society after living off the grid with his six children in the forests of America’s Pacific Northwest.

That’s all we know about the project, which will begin filming shortly in Albuquerque (which, I must add, is definitely not in the Pacific Northwest…)

Written and directed by Matt Ross (28 Hotel Rooms), Captain Fantastic is expected to hit cinemas sometime in 2015.

Watch: David Cronenberg & Michael Fassbender Discuss The Creative Process In 'A Dangerous Analysis'

8 July 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This year’s “Map to the Stars” marks the second straight time David Cronenberg has worked with former “Twlight” hearthrob Robert Pattinson and the third time with Sarah Gadon, who first appeared in “A Dangerous Method” alongside the director’s previous muse, Viggo Mortensen. In the run-up to that 2011 historical film, Cronenberg took part in a short video – along with co-star Michael Fassbender – where he revealed his thoughts on the creative process. Spanning just over five minutes long and shot around the time of the Venice Film Festival, the short video is still illuminating despite its short length. In point of fact, when asked about where his ideas for films come from, the Canadian director said that “a film can come from anywhere: from a newspaper article, from a dream, from a nightmare, from a joke.” It’s not a lot but it’s nice espresso shot of Cronenberg should you need one. »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Teaser Trailer Coming Soon; Peter Jackson Says to Expect Full Trailer in October

7 July 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While we will likely be able to enjoy a teaser trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies relatively soon (like, probably Comic-Con soon), we won't get a look at the full trailer until around October.  That's still plenty of weeks ahead of the film's December 17th release date, but too late to attach it to this summer's big blockbuster films.  While that's been the case for the last two trailers, Jackson was pretty forward about the reason we haven't seen anything from the final film of the franchise just yet. Hit the jump for his explanation and for more on The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Jackson himself broke the news via his Facebook page: (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all. »

Fresh off the overwhelming success of X-Men: Days of Future Past and 12 Years a Slave, the first image of Michael Fassbender’s in his latest project, Slow West, has surfaced.

The Definitive War Movies: 20-11

26 June 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Top twenty. Now we start to see the more widely recognizable films that people have some emotional attachment to. World War II gets a few mentions in this portion of the list, but this is one of the more diverse sections, overall. We get a mention of the Boer War, the Algerian War, and the Korean War, as well as the only movie about the American Civil War on this list.

20. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943)

Directed by: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

Conflict: Boer War, World War I, World War II

The only film on the list that spans multiple wars is also probably the least battle-focused film on the list. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp is told through an extended flashback, following Major-General Clive Wynne-Candy (Roger Livesey) as he rises through the ranks of the British military from war to war. The flashback is »

Train in Vain: How 'Snowpiercer' Became the Summer's Coolest Movie

26 June 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

What would happen if, thanks to an attempt to stop global warming that went awry, our big blue marble were plunged into a new ice age? The result would be pretty much what you would expect: Humanity's survivors would find themselves trapped on a perpetually moving supertrain divided by strict us-vs.-them barriers (plebians in the back, patricians in the front), and the huddled masses would have to fight their way to the front, one bloody siege at a time.

Lisandro Alonso Named Lincoln Center Filmmaker in Residence

24 June 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Argentine director Lisandro Alonso will be the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 2014 Filmmaker in Residence.

A minimalist filmmaker whose narrative work has a documentary-like aesthetic, Alonso’s most recent film was “Jauja” with Viggo Mortensen, which was nominated for the Un Certain Regard Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

“Many times I think less is more,” Alonso told Variety. “It makes for a nice contrast to many big U.S. films.”

His other films include “La Libertad,” “Los Muertos,” “Fantasma,” and “Liverpool” — all of which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

Alonso told Variety that he plans to use his residency to develop his next project, an exploration of people who live (and search for gold) in the Amazon jungle environment.

“I’m thinking about what kind of film can I make [in Brazil] about people who live outside of civilization and society and all these kinds of structures that we have, »
