The James Franco-produced “The Color of Time” (formerly titled “Tar” when it premiered at last year’s Rome Film Festival) examines the life and work of Pulitzer Prize winning poet C.K. Williams. The film takes an unusual approach to the material, in that an ensemble of 12 directors (all are New York University students) collaborated with the main cast. But this is not an anthology film —the directors worked together to create a single narrative. The story follows a young Williams, living with his wife and young son and grappling with both the dark and idyllic memories of his past as he prepares for a reading in New York City. Judging from the U.S. trailer, the directors decided to really go for the Terence Malick look. But unfortunately, the all-star cast including Franco (as Williams), Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff, Bruce Campbell and Henry Hopper can't make the dreamy material work. »

Starz Digital Media has released The Color of Time trailer and poster. We last reported on this film over two years ago, and at the time it looked like it was an adaptation of the poetry of Pulitzer Prize-winner C.K. Williams, but as this new trailer and synopsis explain, it's really more of a biopic. The plot has Williams (James Franco) preparing for a reading in New York City, but he's haunted by memories from his past. The Color of Time has the hook of being handled by 12 directors, and the cast also includes Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff, Henry Hopper, and Bruce Campbell. However, looking at this trailer, it seems like the ensemble of directors really wanted to make The Tree of Life minus dinosaurs. Hit the jump to check out The Color of Time trailer and poster. The film will be available for early digital download on December 2nd, »

If you’ve never even heard of James Franco’s The Color Of Time, it’s no wonder. Yet another ambitious project from the multi-hyphenate, it was produced over two years ago during Franco’s downtime during Oz: The Great And Powerful. Enlisting twelve of his most promising Nyu students to direct the dozen segments which make up the movie, it was even granted a premiere before…. poof! It sort of slipped from view.
What’s most interesting about the film is that the cluster of big name stars attached have failed to evoke an aggressive marketing campaign. Perhaps the vignette style doesn’t attract wide audiences, hence its low-flying status in the last two years. Nevertheless, we’ve now got the chance to see a brief teaser of what exactly Franco and co. have cooked up.
Very loosely based on the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet C.K. Williams, »

Most of the time, when a group of 12 filmmakers get together for a single film, it's an anthology like V/H/S or Paris, je t'aime. But when it comes to The Color of Time, this ensemble of writers and directors (all students from New York University) are working to tell the story of one Pulitzer Prize-winning poet (James Franco), working through some dark memories as he prepares for a reading in New York City. We've seen a trailer for this film before when it was called Tar and played at the Rome Film Festival. Now it's poised for release next month, and honestly, it looks like it's trying to hard to be a Terrence Malick film. Watch now! Here's the Us trailer for the dramatic omnibus The Color of Time, originally from Apple: James Franco, Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, and Zach Braff star in this dramatic and inventive look »

It may have been Jessica Lange's night Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Sunday, but Demi Moore stole the spotlight on the red carpet! Donning a metallic floor-length gown with a plunging V-neck, the "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" star was the epitome of glamour. Her dazzling dress even caught Lange's eye, who was snapped sneaking a peek at Demi's decolletage!The 65-year-old actress also looked radiant at the star-studded event, showing off her enviable bod in a black gown with sheer embroidered sleeves.

The ratings for Family Guy keep coming down but the Fox series continues to be a cash cow for the studio. Will it ever be cancelled (for the second time)? Move to a cable channel like American Dad! did? Will it return for the 2015-16 season? Stay tuned.
On Family Guy, Peter Griffin and his family and friends continue to have crazy mishaps in the Rhode Island town of Quahog. The voice cast includes Seth MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Seth Green, Mila Kunis, and Mike Henry.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.
An intricately constructed tale of three interwoven stories spanning three cities, Third Person suffers from a script that fails to hook you in during its opening section and drags on without sufficient emotional connection for 137 minutes. There are sporadic moments when the movie sparks into life, particularly in two-hander scenes featuring blistering dialogue and stark revelations. Yet these standalone scenes aren't sufficient to salvage the movie as a whole.
Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde excel in their respective roles as an experienced writer and his lover (an aspiring writer) who can't form a secure bond due to psychological baggage. Their romantic intrigue is laced with sexual tension and played out particularly well, with the self-conscious dialogue managing the rare feat of working well because of these characters' literary background. »
It seems like this movie should have already come out. Warner Bros. has been marketing The Wachowskis sci-fi film for so long. But it’s not coming out until February of next year, so we still have a long way to go. The movie looks visually amazing, but the story doesn’t interest me at all, and I haven’t really liked anything that I’ve seen from the previously released trailers. This might be one of those movies that was just poorly marketed, though, and it will actually be better than it looks. Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star, and this is the synopsis:
Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people's houses and an endless run of bad breaks. »

Rumer Willis is opening up about Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' daughter Wyatt! While the 26-year-old actress and singer says she hasn't met her former step-father's baby girl yet, she has seen pics of Ashton and Mila's 1-month-old child. "I reached out to him when he had the baby, which is so awesome," Rumer said during a recent appearance on Access Hollywood Live. "I saw photos of her [Wyatt]. She's very cute." But don't count on Rumer signing up for babysitting duty anytime soon. Rumer says between little Wyatt and dad Bruce Willis' two daughters Mabel and Evelyn, there aren't enough hours in the week to visit them all. "I have so many babies to »
Looking for a picture of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ new baby girl Wyatt? Rumer has it! In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Rumer Willis opened up about her famous family before touching on her ex-stepfather Kutcher, 36, and his infant daughter. “I reached out to him when he had a baby the other day,” Willis, 26, told co-hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover. “I saw photos of her, she’s very cute!” But don’t expect the Always Woodstock star to help out Kutcher and Kunis with their little one. “I [...] »
Director: Paul Haggis
Running Time: 213 minutes
Synopsis: Third Person tells the interconnecting stories of three couple’s relationships; (Neeson) an award-winning author has just left his wife and is shacked up with his young adulteress (Wilde), (Brody) finds himself involved in a kidnapping drama in Italy, whilst (Kunis) is an ex-soap actress trying to regain custody of her young son.
Those expecting a sweet and sugary romantic drama obviously don’t know Paul Hagis. The mind behind Crash and Million Dollar Baby obviously wasn’t going to produce anything that the audience could just ‘switch off and watch’. Third Person instead challenges the viewer to digest a multitude of tough topics.
What helps Third Person stand out from the rest is the way in which the ensemble cast all rally together to produce something magical. Each »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 7th to Sunday 2nd November 2014…
Interstellar may have failed to top the U.S. box office chart, losing out to Disney’s Big Hero 6, but it had no such competition here in the U.K., with the sci-fi epic debuting in first place with £5,378,220 and giving director Christopher Nolan his fourth-biggest opening on these shores after The Dark Knight Rises, The Dark Knight and Inception.
Interstellar was the only newcomer to crack the top ten this past weekend, but Mike Leigh’s latest Mr Turner enjoyed a solid second weekend, climbing up to second place from its seventh-placed opening last week and pushing its total gross to £2.6 million, overtaking Vera Drake to give Leigh his highest-grossing film to date.
Number one this time last year: Gravity
1. Interstellar – £5,378,220 weekend (New)
2. Mr Turner – £1,014,433 weekend (2 weeks)

The perpetually busy James Franco might just begin his 2015 with the Park City launch-padding of (among others) Pamela Romanowsky’s sophomore film which comes across as an interplay between fiction and fact. Prior to landing The Adderall Diaries at (count ‘em four) Sundance Institute’s Screenwriter’s Lab, the Director’s Lab, the Producer’s Summit, and the Film Music and Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Sound all in 2013, Romanowsky directed Franco in The Color of Time (formerly titled “Tar”) which also starred Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain and Zach Braff. Shooting began in May of this year, with Franco leading a cast comprised of Amber Heard and Christian Slater. Worth noting is Robert Redford has an executive producer cred, could it follow in the same fest berth as his last executive produced film, Drunktown’s Finest?

Stars: Clive Owen, Marion Cotillard, Billy Crudup, Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, Matthias Schoenaerts, James Caan, Noah Emmerich, Lili Taylor, Domenick Lombardozzi, John Ventimiglia,Griffin Dunne | Written by Guillaume Canet, James Gray | Directed by Guillaume Canet
Two brothers, Chris (Owen), recently out of prison and Frank (Crudup), a respected policeman, are on either side of the law. As Chris tries to clean up his act and reconnect with his family he finds himself low on funds and rejected by society. Will he turn back to his old life and force Frank to act, splitting their family in two forever? Facing off in 1970′s Brooklyn, Blood Ties looks to see if blood trumps money when it comes to family and organised crime.
What I liked about Blood Ties was that the seventies was dripping from every corner of the film. The music, the clothes, the hair cuts and the attitudes of the characters. »
