Set to close the 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is the sophomore directorial effort of Alan Rickman who is best known for being the source of villainy in Die Hard (1988) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991). “It is a great privilege for A Little Chaos to have its world premiere in Toronto and for it to be given the Festival’s closing night Gala, but it is also a very personal pleasure,” stated Rickman. “I have filmed in the city, visited often, and some of my closest friends live there. It will be like coming home.”
The historical drama stars Kate Winslet as Sabine De Barra an unconventional landscaper who is tasked with designing one of the fountains at The Palace of Versailles while contending with uncooperative weather, rivalries at the court of Louis Xiv and her own personal demons. Performing alongside Winslet are Stanley Tucci, Alan Rickman and Matthias Schoenaerts. »

This year’s San Diego Comic-Con is almost upon us, and following the release of the first poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (which you can check out by clicking here), we now have brand new posters for Mad Max: Fury Road and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 made specifically for the event.
The tone is set nicely in the poster for George Miller’s highly anticipated Mad Max sequel/reboot as it shows Tom Hardy’s titular character standing by as an impending onslaught of wastlelanders head in his direction. The tagline is the rather brilliant and somewhat ironic: “What a Lovely Day”.
The cast of Mad Max: Fury Road also includes Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz, Courtney Eaton, Rosei Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, and Abbey Lee Kershaw. After years of delays, it’s currently set to be released on May 15th, »

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was one of the biggest panels of Comic-Con 2013, but Lionsgate has decided to forego much of the convention this year. Instead, they’ve released a The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Comic-Con poster along with their odd promotion to let fans see the new trailer on a Galaxy Tab S. This Comic-Con poster isn’t anything special in part because it’s confusing. The Capitol is supposed to stand for carefully designed order, but artist Wk Interact just threw together a mishmash of authoritarian imagery like a barcode on a granite wall, and then plastered on the “Mockingjay” emblem as if some citizen was rebelling against a piece of street art. Hit the jump to check out the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Comic-Con poster. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Donald Sutherland, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, »

Tiff will close out the 2014 festival with "A Little Chaos." The period film is led by Kate Winslet, with Stanley Tucci, Matthias Schoenaerts and Alan Rickman (who also directs) in support in this film that has a fairly unconventional plot. Here's the synopsis: A landscape gardener with a taste for the unconventional is invited to design one of the fountains at the Palace of Versailles. As she battles with the weather, the perilous rivalries at the court of Louis Xiv and her own private demons, she finds herself drawn closer to the formality and enigma of the architect who hired her. Moving a completely different direction, Paul Dano is channeling Brian Wilson in Bill Pohlad's "Love & Mercy." Elizabeth Banks, John Cusack and Paul Giamatti make up the intriguing supporting cast. Here's the synopsis: Focusing on Brian Wilson, the mercurial singer, songwriter and leader of The Beach Boys, Love & Mercy paints an unconventional. »

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) has fired its awards season opening salvo, announcing a slew of world premieres for the September edition, which will close with Alan Rickman’s A Little Chaos.Scroll down for full list
Not to be outdone by the New York Film Festival, which has staked a claim to the world premieres of Gone Girl and Inherent Vice, and Venice, which will open with Birdman, artistic director Cameron Bailey and his team announced on Tuesday (22) close to 50 galas and special presentations.

The Toronto International Film Festival has made the initial announcement for its 2014 line-up. While there will be more films announced in the near future, we now know who many of the heavy hitters will be. While the opening night film has yet to be unveiled, the closing night film will be Alan Rickman’s A Little Chaos, starring Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman and Stanley Tucci. Bennett Miller’s much buzzed about Foxcatcher (featuring Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in a great cast that includes Mark Ruffalo and Vanessa Redgrave). Somewhat unexpected is the announcement of Antoine Fuqua’s 80’s show adaptation The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington and Chloë Grace Moretz. We’ll also see Adam Sandler trying his hand at another dramatic role (which he is often good at) in Men, Women and Children from director Jason Reitman. Another pleasant addition is Dan Gilroy’s The Nightcrawler, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, »

It may have lost top spot at the box office to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction has pushed its worldwide haul to a whopping $886 million this weekend, further extending its lead as the highest-grossing movie of the year as well as surpassing the $709. million of the original Transformers and the $836.3 million of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. A billion looks all but assured for Age of Extinction, while the franchise high of $1.123 billion set by Transformers: Dark of the Moon is certainly an achievable target.
