Watch: Mind-Blowing First Trailer for Terrence Malick's 'Knight of Cups'

15 December 2014 1:20 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This is heaven for Malick fans. Set to bow in competition at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival, his long-awaited "Knight of Cups" starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman has its first trailer—and it's a dark, crazy ride through Malick-land. This tale of celebrity excess is shot by "Tree of Life," "Gravity" and "Birdman" Dp Emmanuel Lubezki, with gorgeous and surreal images that recall Malick's "Tree" and "To the Wonder." "Knight of Cups" will be Malick's first trip to Berlin since 1999, when he won the Golden Bear for his WWII epic "The Thin Red Line." The eclectic cast of "Knight of Cups" may or may not also include Jason Clarke, Wes Bentley, Nick Offerman and Joel Kinnaman, as Malick is notorious from slashing swaths from his films. (Rachel Weisz, Michael Sheen and Amanda Peet were all cut entirely from his divisive 2012 romance "To the »

Sundance ’15: Baumbach, Fleck/Boden, Pulcini/Berman, Ponsoldt & Another Swanberg Among Premieres

8 December 2014 1:25 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Last year’s slate of seventeen Narrative Premieres (excluding secret screenings of Boyhood and Nymphomaniac: Vol. I) refreshingly included works from first time filmmakers. I hadn’t seen it coming but Little Accidents and The One I Love were included among the likes of Calvary, Frank and Love is Strange. 2015 will be a true we Swanberg family affair with Joe Swanberg joining wife Kris (Unexpected) with a feature as well in Digging for Fire. James Ponsoldt is officially four for four with Sundance — his latest End of the Tour should be a slam dunk for the Eccles. Sticking to the numbers game… we’ll have a lovely bedfellow pairings of Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s already announced The Stanford Prison Experiment which is going to be mentioned in many loglines alongside Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter - about the Milgram experiment. Among the filmmaking duos we were expecting, we find Mississippi Grind »

8 December 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Viola Davis, Jennifer Lopez, James Franco, Ewan McGregor, Greta Gerwig, Jesse Eisenberg, Saoirse Ronan, Ryan Reynolds, Peter Sarsgaard and Lily Tomlin — as well as directors Noah Baumbach, Michael Almereyda, Rodrigo Garcia, James Ponsoldt, Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman — are among the big names in the Premieres lineup at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, unveiled today along with Documentary Premieres and a new Special Events section.

Festival director John Cooper noted that while this year’s 16 Premieres selections will be among the buzziest, most commercial titles in Park City, “they’re not without an independent feel to them, and that’s what I’m always looking for. There is a very independent spirit behind these films.”

By way of example, Cooper cited “Last Days in the Desert,” a description-resistant foray into father-son territory from Garcia, a director known for his stories about women (“Nine Lives,” “Mother and Child”); John Crowley’s “Brooklyn, »

Sundance: Premieres, Doc Premieres

8 December 2014 1:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Festival top brass have revealed a high-profile roster of out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres entries featuring many returning heroes, as well as a new Special Events section and panel participants including George Lucas.

Justin Kelly’s I Am Michael is likely to become a major talking point and stars James Franco and Zachary Quinto in the true tale of activist and Young Gay America co-founder Michael Glatze, who renounced his homosexuality and became a Christian pastor. The Exchange handles international rights.

James Ponsoldt’s David Foster Wallace film End Of The Tour (pictured, photo by Jakob Ihre) starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel makes the cut — Fortitude International is the international sales agent — as does the latest from the newly prolific Noah Baumbach, whose Mistress America stars his Frances Ha and Greenberg muse Greta Gerwig and arrives three months after the Toronto premiere of While We’re Young.

Sundance regulars Ryan Fleck and Anna Bowden return with Mississippi Grind »

Amanda Peet gives birth to baby boy

8 December 2014 11:58 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Amanda Peet has given birth to her third child. The 'Whole Nine Yards' actress and her husband David Benioff - with who she already has daughters Frances, seven, and Molly, four - welcomed a baby boy into the world in Los Angeles yesterday (07.12.14) but his name has not yet been revealed. The 42-year-old star surprised fans at the Emmy awards in late August when she debuted her baby bump as she had managed to keep the news under wraps for some time. Amanda later revealed her pregnancy was ''great'' though she had been feeling tired. She said: ''It's great. I can't complain. I mean, I'm tired but otherwise, I'm doing really well.'' The brunette beauty - who married her 'Game of Thrones' showrunner spouse in 2006 - said Frances was excited about being a sister again, but admitted Molly was less impressed. She said: ''They're pretty excited. The older one is pretty excited, »

Full-Length Togetherness Trailer Offers a Look at the Perils of Adult Relationships in The Duplass Brothers’ New HBO Comedy

3 December 2014 4:39 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Watch the full length Togetherness trailer after the jump.  The eight-episode first season premieres January 11th on HBO after Girls.

Watch Mark Duplass and Amanda Peet in HBO's New Show

2 December 2014 12:10 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The main message in the trailer for HBO's new comedy-drama Togetherness? Growing up is hard to do. Whether you're a married couple going through the 10-year itch like Brett (Mark Duplass) and Michelle (Melanie Lynskey), a single lady (Amanda Peet), or an out-of-place dude (Steve Zissis), life comes with serious challenges. The series, from Duplass and his brother, Jay, revolves around this group of adults who find themselves living under one roof. It looks both heartwarming and heartbreaking, and as much as I've been enjoying seeing Duplass on The Mindy Project, this emotionally driven show feels way more up his alley. The show starts on Jan. 11, the same night that Girls returns! »

Watch: New Trailer For HBO's Dysfunctional Dramedy 'Togetherness' With Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey And More

2 December 2014 7:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you made a Venn diagram with one circle representing HBO's programming of shows about the travails of middle adult life, and the other signifying the potent blend of comedy and drama of Mark and Jay Duplass, then you might just get "Togetherness." It's the latest series headed to the premium channel, and a new trailer has arrived. Featuring an ensemble that includes Melanie Lynskey, Amanda Peet, Joshua Leonard and Mark Duplass (who co-directed, and co-wrote the entire series with his bro), the show centers on two sisters — and their respective partners — who find themselves living under the same roof. And out of this simple premise is spun a story about relationships, sex, expectations, and the crushing malaise of middle age. It looks well observed, with a good heart and edgy spark, so mark this one down as one to watch. "Togetherness" debuts on January 11th. Watch below. »

2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Leslye Headland’s Sleeping with Other People

13 November 2014 12:15 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

It was an admirable modest hit prior to leaving Park City in 2012, but who knew that Leslye Headland’s feature debut would turn into a major VOD hit? The RADiUS acquisitions people certainly had a hunch and played their Bachelorette cards right. It came as no surprise when filming commenced this past June on her New York City shot, sophomore film — which lined up Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis with supporting players Natasha Lyonne, Adam Scott, Amanda Peet and Margarita Levieva. It’s had plenty of time in post-production and it certainly feels like a high value acquisitions title that may or may not be too big for the fest. Nonetheless, Sleeping with Other People has some of that indie cred ingredients that could push it into the fest.

She also looks for “like-minded” collaborators. Elbaum has worked with Gary Sanchez Prods. since the company was founded in 2006 by Ferrell and Adam McKay, helped produce several of the company’s films; she’s now head of Gloria Sanchez Prods., which she founded earlier this year.
