At the end of the Cannes Film Festival last week, jury member Jessica Chastain spoke out against a trend she found “deeply disturbing”: The representation of women in film. It was a brazen move for an actress at the height of her success to make herself so vulnerable and speak so candidly in front of Hollywood’s crème de la crème.
“I do hope that when we include more female storytellers we will have more of the kinds of women that I recognize in my day to day life,” she said. “Ones that are proactive, have their own agencies, don’t just react to the men around them, they have their own point of view.” I would add one more quality to Chastain’s list: Big girls.

Sony Pictures Animation, which has fallen on hard times in recent years, highlighted diversity and female empowerment as part of its comeback at Wednesday’s slate preview in Culver City. The biggest news was confirmation that Miles Morales, the mixed race web-slinging teen (African-American and Hispanic), will star in the untitled “Spider-Man” feature coming December 21, 2018.
Morales, created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli to succeed the late Peter Parker in the comics, has already become a TV animation staple on Disney Xd’s “Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors” (initially voiced by Donald Glover).
The animated “Spider-Man” marks a return to Spa for Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”), who directed “The Lego Movie” and are currently making the “Han Solo” standalone “Star Wars” feature.
In a pre-recorded video message from London, Lord said, “What inspired us the most is that anyone can wear the mask. »

Sony recently released the first teaser trailer for The Emoji Movie, which is slated to come out later this year. While the reaction from many people online seemed to be that the movie is largely unnecessary, perhaps the cast may be able to change everyone's minds. As hard as it may be to believe, the studio has tapped Sir Patrick Stewart to voice the poop emoji in The Emoji Movie.
Sony made the announcement during a big event they held today called Sony Animation Day. The official Sony Pictures Twitter account made the news public, saying that Patrick Stewart would be voicing the character, simply named Poop. That may not make the prospect of The Emoji Movie as a whole seem more appealing, but the idea of hearing such a distinguished actor voicing an expressive pile of poop is definitely something to grab onto. Aside from his work as Professor »
Throughout his decorated career, Sir Patrick Stewart has amassed a collection of truly memorable roles. We’ve had the great Professor X – a role that Stewart will soon reprise for James Mangold’s Logan – Star Trek‘s Jean-Luc Picard and, more recently, Darcy Banker, the neo-Nazi skinhead seen in Jeremy Saulnier’s excellent Green Room. But in 2017, Stewart will lend his voice to Sony’s Emoji Movie.
He’ll play Poop – no, really – and we understand that Stewart has climbed on board alongside a whole host of newcomers including Jennifer Coolidge, Bridesmaids alum Maya Rudolph as Smiler, and Jake T. Austin as the human character of Sony’s twee animation. Anthony Leondis is at the helm for The Emoji Movie, which largely centers around Gene (Deadpool’s T.J. Miller), a sprightly symbol who has essentially been rendered the outcast of Textopolis after displaying more than one emotion. In order to course-correct his internal code, »

With essays ranging from A Love Letter to Jennifer Coolidge and The Gender-Fluid Fantasy of Adventure Time to interviews with Kirsten Johnson, Ana Lily Amirpour, and Claire Denis, the Canadian-based journal cléo is an essential source for smart, fresh, and feminist perspectives on film and media.
Film critic and programming associate with the Toronto International Film Festival, Kiva Reardon, who penned an impassioned essay about the lack of female film critics last month, founded cléo in 2013. The journal publishes online three times a year. Each issue is built around a theme, such as “camp,” “risk,” or “boob tube.” Now, Cléo creators are hoping to raise rates for contributors and editors and publish a print compendium, which is why they are enlisting readers to make a small donation via Patreon.
