Telluride Film Festival 2014: Most Anticipated

26 August 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Main Street during The Telluride Film Festival

The Telluride Film Festival seemingly appears overnight against the gorgeous backdrop of rugged mountains. It lasts just four days but in fact it takes more than a month of intensive labor to transform the elementary school, high school, hockey rink, library, the park in the middle of town and a masonic temple into theaters. Now in its 41st year,up until recently this hallowed Labor Day weekend event has long been a quiet fixture on the festival circuit. As most of the festival world knows, the escalating word of mouth about the quality of Telluride’s unofficial premieres caused the Toronto International Film Festival to issue an ultimatum to those hoping to land choice spots in the fall line-up: if you choose to screen at Telluride first, your film will be pushed back on Tiff’s slate. Realistically- Toronto has little to fear from Telluride besides buzz. »

Naomie Harris And Beau Knapp Join Jake Gyllenhaal In Southpaw

11 August 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jake Gyllenhaal won’t be going into the ring alone for his upcoming boxing drama Southpaw, as last week, Naomie Harris and Beau Knapp both joined the Antoine Fuqua-directed film, which was penned by Sons of Anarchy writer creator Kurt Sutter.

Southpaw centers on a troubled fighter with dreams of becoming a welterweight champion, whose personal life crumbles even as his career soars. Harris will play Angela, a social worker who works with Gyllenhaal’s character and his daughter. With roles as Moneypenny in Skyfall and Winnie Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom under her belt, Harris’ star is rising fast with no signs of slowing down. That Harris has boarded the project likely means that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, previously in talks for the same role, has dropped out of talks.

For his part, Knapp, who had a major role in The Signal earlier this year, »

6 August 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

You might not expect a biopic on astrophysicist Stephen Hawking to be framed around a love story, but that’s just what we’re getting with the first trailer for The Theory of Everything.

Based on Jane Hawking’s own memoir, Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, the film »
