18 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Flash Gordon - 1pm, Film4

Despicable Me - 2.15pm, ITV2

With his status as the world's greatest supervillain under threat, Gru (Steve Carell) plans to steal the moon with the help of his diminutive yellow Minions, who steal the show with the best gags.

YNMS²: Foxcatcher & Gone Girl

19 April 2014 4:13 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Unless you count the Lego Movie's probable Best Animated Feature bid and the Sundance bow of Love is Strange (I'm still hopeful - it's playing Tribeca right now) 2014 hasn't seen much in the way of Oscar contenders just yet. Recent trailers are changing the collective shrug to raised eyebrows - between The Homesman (previously discussed), Jersey Boys (if you're feeling very generous), the Cannes lineup announcement and these two trailers from past nominated directors Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher) and David Fincher (Gone Girl) the body is ready for the first wave of Oscar predictions. We'll manage them before April wraps.

Both of these trailers have been around for a bit and both blissfully play more like teasers despite their length; the job of a trailer is to sell a future ticket, not to make you feel like you've already seen it so you don't need one.  Foxcatcher's traiser was actually »

Will Cannes 2014 kick off the Oscar season for Bennett Miller, Mike Leigh and others?

18 April 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ever since the Cannes International Film Festival knocked down a few walls between itself and the West in 2001 with festival director Thierry Frémaux coming on board to liven up the Croisette with more of a Hollywood acceptance, the connection between the annual May event and the awards season has become more pronounced. Films like Baz Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge!," Roman Polanski's "The Pianist," Clint Eastwood's "Mystic River," Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Babel" and David Cronenberg's "A History of Violence" all started their Oscar trajectories in the south of France, while others like Paul Greengrass' "United 93," Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and "Midnight in Paris" and Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" got high profile beginnings out of Competition. A coveted Palme d'Or win sometimes leads to a significant boost in the Oscar season, even if no recipient of the festival's »

'The Office' creator Greg Daniels reflects on finale: How they hid Steve Carell from NBC

18 April 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

NBC’s The Office was at first viewed with so much skepticism — the Yankee version of Ricky Gervais’ beloved UK cult favorite series. Yet by the second season, the Thursday comedy found its own voice and its quirky ensemble of struggling office drones was embraced by fans and critics. Its docu-style helped launch a TV trend away from studio-based sitcoms and gave NBC a much-needed anchor on TV’s most competitive night. Last year, after nine seasons, The Office closed its doors. Below creator Greg Daniels looks back on the final episode.

Steve Carell mentors Channing Tatum in this new image from Foxcatcher

17 April 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I.ve been not so patiently awaiting Bennett Miller.s Foxcatcher. What dragged me in? Aside from Miller? Was it Channing Tatum? No. You want to think that. It was actually another turn to drama for Steve Carell that hooked me. I think he can certainly step out away from his comedic roots to make a role like this one believable. I.m sure people though that Jim Carrey wouldn.t make the jump so well, but I think that The Truman Show disproved that theory. All that said, I.m rooting for Carell. »

Foxcatcher will debut at Cannes and might be on a collision course with Oscar

17 April 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

About a month ago, I wrote a piece here that speculated on some of the Academy Award hopefuls that might be debuting at the Cannes Film Festival. Well, the lineup for Cannes has been announced (at least the preliminary list of titles…look for some movies to be added in the coming weeks), and while a few flicks I mentioned in that article like The Homesman, How to Catch a Monster, and Maps to the Stars are set to unspool in France, the film that probably is the most anticipated, especially in terms of awards potential, is Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher. In fact, I’ve listed it as a Best Picture frontrunner in my Oscar predictions, if you haven’t already noticed. In case you’re not up to speed on this movie, it’s obviously directed by Miller based on a script from Dan Futterman and based on a true story. »

Cannes Film Festival 2014: Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Movies Make the Lineup

17 April 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart could end up in very close proximity next month. The exes are among the scores of stars slated to attend the famed Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 14 to 25 and revealed its lineup in a press conference Thursday. Pattinson, 27, has two films in contention: The Rover, a gritty drama set in a near-future Australia, and Maps to the Stars, a Hollywood-skewering drama costarring Julianne Moore and John Cusack. Stewart, 24, will be seen in the drama Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche. The royal biopic Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, is slated to »

Actors Turn Directors for Cannes 2014

17 April 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The U.S. will be represented by two films in the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or competition: Actor Tommy Lee Jones—who co-wrote the screenplay and directs fest select “The Homesman”—will also be acting alongside Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”), Miranda Otto (“Rake”), and William Fichtner (“The Dark Knight”) in this year’s competition. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” featuring a starry cast that includes Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, also made the Cannes competition cut.  The full lineup was announced by Thierry Frémaux in Paris this morning; it’s his seventh year as the festival’s general delegate. Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars,” starring Robert Pattinson—also in another Cannes select with Guy Pearce titled “The Rover”—is also in competition, as is fellow Canadian Atom Egoyan’s thriller “The Captive,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Rosario Dawson. »

New Trailers and Posters for Foxcatcher, The Rover, and The Captive

17 April 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Earlier today, the lineup for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival was announced, which means that marketing materials are going online, or in the case of Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, back online.  A teaser trailer was released last fall, but then Sony pulled it shortly before announcing that the film would be pushed back to 2014.  Now that the movie is playing in competition at Cannes, the Foxcatcher trailer is back online, and I highly recommend watching it if you haven't already.  There are also new posters and trailers David Michôd’s upcoming thriller The Rover starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and for Atom Egoyan's The Captive starring Ryan Reynolds and Mireille Enos.  Both films look fascinating, and I'm eager to hear the reaction to all of these pictures after they play at Cannes. Hit the jump to check out the trailers and posters.  The Rover opens in New York and L. »

New Pics From Cannes-Selected 'Foxcatcher' With Steve Carell & Channing Tatum And 'Sils Maria' With Kristen Stewart

17 April 2014 7:32 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Cannes you believe it? (Sorry, we're already tired from being up early to cover this.) Thierry Fremaux and co. unveiled the slate for this years Cannes Film Festival (with a couple more titles to come), and yes, that means more images from the films in competition. First up is a new look at Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher." The film, originally slated to be released last year, was held back so the director could put the finishing touches on it and now it's headed to the south of France. Here's the synopsis for the movie co-starring Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall: The story of Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz and how paranoid schizophrenic John duPont killed his brother, Olympic Champion Dave Schultz. Next up is "Sils Maria" (or "Clouds Of Sils Maria"), the latest from Cannes fave Olivier Assayas which brings together Juliette Binoche, »

2014 Cannes Film Festival Lineup Announced; Foxcatcher, Maps To The Stars, How To Train Your Dragon 2, and More to Premiere

17 April 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup has been announced, and it has some heavy hitters.  Technically, the biggest is How to Train Your Dragon 2, but Cannes has played host to DreamWorks Animation films in the past in an attempt to give the festival a wider appeal.  Plus, that movie is playing out of competition.  Among the indies, the one I'll be keeping an eye on is Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo.  Other notable contenders include David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars, David Michôd’s The Rover, Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner, Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman, Ryan Gosling's Lost River (formerly titled How to Catch a Monster), Zhang Yimou's Coming Home, and Atom Egoyan's The Captive. Hit the jump to check out the full lineup.  The 2014 Cannes Film Festival runs from May 15 – 25th. Via Vulture. Opener Grace of Monaco, »

Cannes 2014 Lineup Revealed: Nicole Kidman, Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, and More

17 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This morning the lineup was announced for the annual Cannes Film Festival, the glittery European festival where a premium is placed luxury and decadence and many super important, Oscar-bound films make their starry debut. And this year's festival, which didn't include any big surprises or giant-sized premieres, is still an embarrassment of riches nonetheless.

The opening night film, "Grace of Monaco," features Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. This lavish period biopic, directed by "La Vie En Rose" filmmaker Olivier Dahan, had been previously announced. But it still set the bar pretty high, at least when it came to prestige movies starring big time celebrities. Thankfully, the rest of the slate followed through.

Amongst the movies with big names are "Moneyball" director Bennett Miller's based on a true story "Foxcatcher," which features Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum; genius French director (and Cannes favorite) Olivier Assayas's drama "Clouds of Sils Maria, »

Cannes Unveils 2014 Official Selection Lineup

17 April 2014 2:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan will duke it out with Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Michel Hazanavicius and the Dardenne brothers for the Palme d’Or at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup this morning in Paris by fest topper Thierry Fremaux.

The wide-ranging competition slate is typically heavy on French filmmakers, with Olivier Assayas’ international co-production “Clouds of Sils Maria” and Bertrand Bonello’s fashion-designer biopic “Saint Laurent” joining Hazanavicius’ “The Search” and Godard’s 3D experiment “Goodbye to Language.” Fremaux noted that Godard, famously a no-show at the 2010 Cannes premiere of his “Film socialisme,” had “promised he’ll be there — which doesn’t mean he will!”

One of the more intriguing developments of this year’s competition is the unusual dominance of Canadian auteurs. »

2014 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Main Competition, Un Certain Regard & Special Screenings

16 April 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With only hours ago before the official selection for the Main Competition is announced, we’ve narrowed our final predictions to the following titles that we’re crystal-balling as the films that will be included on Thierry Fremaux’s highly anticipated list. Despite an obvious drought of Asian auteurs (we’re thinking the rumored frontrunner Takashi Miike won’t be included in tomorrow’s list) who’s to say there won’t be some definite surprises, like Jia Zhang-ke’s A Touch of Sin last year.

Several hopefuls appear not to be ready in time, including Malick, Hsou-hsien, Cristi Puiu, and Innarritu, to name a few. But there does appear to be a high quantity of exciting titles from some of cinema’s leading auteurs. We’re still a bit tentative about whether Xavier Dolan’s latest, Mommy, will get a main competition slot—instead, we’re predicting another surprise, »
