Followers of the films of Ridley Scott will remember the impeccably produced promos for Prometheus which took place in the ‘real world’ of the film. Guy Pearce’s Ted talk was a fine primer for the scientific ambition which unpinned the film’s doomed voyage while the Weyland company advert for their latest creation, the android David

Australia’s most famous gay memoir becomes a regrettably dissatisfying drama in Neil Armfield’s flat “Holding the Man.” Tim Conigrave’s bestselling 1995 autobiography was turned into a well-received play in 2006 by Tommy Murphy, but the self-same Murphy’s screen adaptation relies on predisposed audiences whose emotional investment will paper over the shallow characterizations. Meant as a passionate chronicle of a great love, and a sobering reminder of the stigma of AIDS, the pic blandly conjures these sentiments and stands as one of the more wrong-footed evocations of coming out in the 1970s and ’80s. Home play later this month will be strong, while a moderate international rollout, in the “Pride” vein, isn’t impossible.

After the initial slate for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival was announced last month there were many observers, including this pundit, who wondered of the annual September event had once again lost the battle of premieres to its Fall festival cousins. While debuting Ridley Scott's "The Martian," Jean Marc Valle's "Demolition" and Michael Moore's "Where Do We Invade Next" is nothing to sneeze at the fact some of the most anticipated films of the year are heading to Venice and Telluride first has to be a bit disheartening. Especially when it's your 40th anniversary. Never fear fans of the Great White North, Toronto always seems to land some eyebrow raising last minute additions and this year is no different. Today Tiff announced that David Gordon Green's "Our Brand Is Crisis" with Sandra Bullock, Marc Abraham's "I Saw The Light" with Tom Hiddleston, Catherine Hardwicke's "Miss You Already »

Cobie Smulders is not accustomed to being singled out. The How I Met Your Mother star and Marvel universe apparatchik tends to operate in the company of others, which is why she found herself somewhat stricken with panic earlier this year at the Sundance premiere of her latest film, Unexpected, which opens in theaters and on demand this Friday. "Oh shit," she recalls thinking. "I'm in every scene."
It's true, she is — though it's about time. Fans of her CBS sitcom, which concluded its nine-season run last year, might agree »
Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses, from her Oscar-winning role as a depressed Virginia Woolf in "The Hours" and warbling woman of the night in "Moulin Rouge!" to the grieving mother in "Rabbit Hole," aggressive newswoman on the rise in "To Die For," and sexy turn in "Paperboy." I talked to her on a chilly Sundance balcony right before her latest film "Strangerland" made its debut in the World competition. "Strangerland" is a gorgeously moody outback thriller shot in Alice Springs about a pharmacist (Joseph Fiennes, replacing originally cast Guy Pearce) and his wife (Kidman) who move to a new town after their sex-crazed 15-year-old daughter has an affair with a teacher. They haven't had a chance to settle down when the girl and her younger brother vanish during a dust storm, presumably into the desert, spawning all sorts of talk and suspicion as the town police chief (Hugo Weaving) tries to. »

For the past little while, the western "Brimstone" has been putting together a pretty solid ensemble, and there was promise in the movie that would've reunited Robert Pattinson with his "The Rover" co-star Guy Pearce, and "Maps To The Stars" player Mia Wasikowska. But as production gets underway, two of those three names have been swapped out. Variety reports that Kit Harington and Dakota Fanning have taken the roles previously assigned to Pattinson and Wasikowska. Martin Koolhoven is directing the movie — which also features Carice Van Houten and "Wetlands" star Carla Juri — that follows Liz, a young woman on the run from her past and a deadly man known as The Preacher. Harington will play an outlaw.
