Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

8 May 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“And the Oscar goes to…” is clearly the phrase on Universal’s mind today, now that the studio has dated Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken follow-up By the Sea for the very award-friendly date of November 13.

Written, directed and produced by Jolie, the romantic drama will also find her in the lead role, alongside off-screen husband Brad PittMélanie Laurent, Niels Arestrup, Melvil Poupaud and Richard Bohringer. Word has it that the filmmaker was inspired by European cinema and ’60s-era theater productions for the pic, which arrives with the following synopsis:

By the Sea follows an American writer named Roland (Pitt) and his wife, Vanessa (Jolie Pitt), who arrive in a tranquil and picturesque seaside resort in 1970s France, their marriage in apparent crisis. As they spend time with fellow travelers, including young newlyweds Lea (Laurent) and François (Poupaud), and village locals Michel (Arestrup) and Patrice (Bohringer), the couple begins to »

7 May 2015 11:41 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Universal Pictures have announced the release date for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's new film By the Sea.

The acting couple will both star in the 1970s-set film, which has been dated to hit cinemas on November 13.

By the Sea follows the troubled marriage of writer Roland (Pitt) and his wife Vanessa (Jolie) when they arrive at a French seaside resort.

"This is a story about a relationship derailed by loss, the tenacity of love, and the path to recovery and acceptance," Jolie said in a statement. "It has been a privilege to explore these universal human experiences with such a generous and talented cast and crew."

Universal schedules Angelina Jolie Pitt's 'By the Sea' for Oscar season release

7 May 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If at first you don't succeed… Last year's big Universal Pictures/Angelina Jolie (Pitt) prestige fall/winter release, "Unbroken," didn't exactly make Oscar season waves upon arrival. But the actress/filmmaker was hard at work on her follow-up throughout, so I'm sure that did a lot to take her mind off how many nominations the film wasn't receiving (and how many nasty things were being said about her in hacked corporate emails). And so she and the studio will give it another go later this year with "By the Sea," starring Jolie and husband Brad Pitt. Universal has announced that the film will be released November 13 domestically. Written, directed and produced by Jolie Pitt, the film also stars Mélanie Laurent, Niels Arestrup, Melvil Poupaud and Richard Bohringer. It follows an American writer named Roland (Pitt) and his wife Vanessa (Jolie Pitt), who arrive in a tranquil and picturesque seaside resort in 1970s France, »

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s By The Sea Gets November Release Date

7 May 2015 4:20 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While Angelina Jolie Pitt’s supposed first foray into awards fare as a director, Unbroken, was a bit disappointing, Universal Pictures is nevertheless bullish on her follow-up. The studio has given a prime awards season release date to By the Sea, slating the film for November 13, 2015. Competition is scarce on the pre-Hunger Games weekend, where Jolie Pitt’s film will square off against the Warner Bros. miners drama The 33, the horror reboot Rings, and the comedy Rock the Kasbah. Jolie Pitt started production on the drama By the Sea before Unbroken was released, rolling cameras in Malta last summer. She stars opposite husband Brad Pitt in the film as an American couple who arrive in a picturesque resort in 1970s France with their marriage in crisis. They subsequently spend time with fellow travelers and come to terms with unresolved issues in their own lives. The cast also includes Mélanie Laurent, »

French Film Festival 2015: Diplomacy Is A Masterfully Convincing Chamber Drama

4 March 2015 7:30 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Diplomacy is based on a stage play, this becomes wholly obvious when viewing the film as realized by the static location and the two powerful figures that have dialogue, debate and a complex diplomatic, ethical and moral verbal Ping-Pong match. It is August 1944 however and this is no ordinary discussion as Colonel Cholitz (Niels Arestrup) the German governor of occupied France, and Raoul Nordling (Andre Dussollier) a Swedish consul-general vie for the very fate of Paris itself.The running time breezes along as the two, unmatched in their acting chops try to naturally persuade one another. Raoul wants Cholitz to ignore his orders from Hitler himself to obliterate Paris, he has timed explosives across every major monument and building. It is a desperate last...

Buzz About the Cannes Lineup Hits Berlin

9 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even before the Berlin festival is over, and the Oscars remain under wraps, the thoughts of many executives have turned to Cannes.

At this stage, the selectors of Cannes different sections have seen very little, so there is no such thing as a certainty.

Following some of the chatter and looking at which films might have the right credentials comes up with a strongly international selection for Thierry Fremaux and his team to choose from.

From Europe, two-time Grand Prix-winner Matteo Garrone’s period fantasy-horror, “The Tale of Tales,” seems a likely competition contender, with Salma Hayek and Vincent Cassel heading the cast.

Fellow Italian, and previous Palme d’Or-winner Nanni Moretti, has “My Mother” (aka “Mia Madre”) while Paolo Sorrentino’s Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel-starrer “Youth” (aka “La Giovinezza,” aka “In the Future”) is also a strong competition contender.

Buzz is strong for “The Lobster,” the English-language »

César Nominations: ‘Saint Laurent’, ‘Timbuktu’, Kristen Stewart In Mix – Full List

28 January 2015 2:25 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Update, 2:25 Am Pt: Last year’s dueling Yves Saint Laurent biopics each picked up several nominations this morning for France’s César Awards. Bertrand Bonello’s Saint Laurent, the country’s entry for the Foreign Language Oscar, leads the pack with 10 mentions, followed by Thomas Cailley’s Directors’ Fortnight title Les Combattants with nine, and Oscar nominee Timbuktu with eight. Yves Saint Laurent, from helmer Jalil Lespert, took seven nods. Otherwise, there are a number of usual suspects in the batch including Best Actress Oscar nominee Marion Cotillard for Two Days, One Night, as well as Juliette Binoche for Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria.

(Adrien Brody won the Best Actor prize in 2003 for The Pianist.) There are also six nominations for late 2014 release La Famille Bélier. »

The White Knights

Director: Joachim Lafosse // Writer: Zelia Abadie, Bulle Decarpentries, Joachim Lafosse, Thomas van Zuylen

Belgian director Joachim Lafosse seems fascinated with incredibly uncomfortable subject matters, known for transgressing awkward familial dynamics in films like the Isabelle Huppert headlined Private Property (2006), an inappropriate student/teacher relationship in Private Lessons (2008), and in his most notable title to date, infanticide in Our Children (2012), which played in Un Certain Regard at Cannes and nabbed Emilie Dequenne a special Best Actress prize in that sidebar (the film also starred Tahar Rahim and Niels Arestrup). His next title, which stands as Lafosse’s sixth feature film, The White Knights, focuses on humanitarian work and stars Vincent Lindon as the head of an Ngo working to extract 300 children from a civil war raging in Chad so that they may be relocated to adoptive French families. Lindon is an incredibly prominent screen presence in France, lately »

Paris– Le Pacte is set to distribute and handle international sales on Ada Loueilh’s “So Long Africa” (“Papa Lumiere”) which will be unveiled at the Unifrance Rendez-Vous.

Set in 2011, “Africa” stars Niels Arestrup as Jacques, a longtime expat who gets exiled in France with Safi, a daughter he hardly knows, to escape the political uprising that shook Abidjan that year. The movie charts their journey across France and depicts Safi’s longing for her mother, Gloria, who is still trapped in the turmoil back in Abidjan.

Julia Coma, Natacha Lindinger and Bruno Todeschini complete the cast.

“Papa lumiere” earned Loueilh the Sopadin prize for best script in 2012. Some themes in the film are inspired by Loueilh’s life experience, as she grew up on the Ivory Coast before moving to France to study.

A promising writer-turned-helmer, Loueilh graduated from France’s prestigious film school La Femis and also attended »
