Eddie Redmayne is earning a lot of praise for his performance in The Danish Girl, but just as impressive is the woman by his side: Alicia Vikander. The Swedish actress portrays Lili Elbe's wife, Gerda, in the film, and Vikander is extraordinary. If you look closely, you'll find that she's actually all over the screen this year, appearing in The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Ex Machina, and Burnt. While she's been acting for years, Vikander has had one hell of a year, and it's likely she'll be a household name by the time she turns up in 2016's Jason Bourne installment. I got the chance to chat with her about her role in The Danish Girl, and while she's not certain that she'll be walking the red carpets during award season, I sure am. Popsugar: How did you walk the line between the real Gerda and the version of Gerda that »

From the producers of The King’S Speech comes the story of a fearless Scottish General, Macbeth (Michael Fassbender), whose ambitious wife (Marion Cotillard) urges him to use wicked means to gain power of the throne. A thrilling interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, MacBeth is a dramatic reimagining of the realities of war-torn times and a tale of all-consuming passion and ambition.
MacBeth is directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) and stars Academy-Award nominee Michael Fassbender (12 Years A Slave) and Academy-Award winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose). The film also stars Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum), David Thewlis (the Harry Potter series), Sean Harris (Prometheus), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did) and Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby). The screenplay by Jacob Koskoff & Todd Louiso and Michael Lesslie
MacBeth opens in St. Louis, Friday, December 11.

If you’ve ever wanted to know how Shakespearean tragedy would play in a minor, more intimate key — no declaiming, no vaulting theatricality — then screw your caffeine to the sticking place and see Macbeth with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. Filmed in shades of black, dark brown, charcoal, and ash, with the occasional orange flame for (minimal) illumination, the story opens with three witches who are less animated than people waiting for a bus and a brand-new scene in which the devastated Macbeths bury their dead child — presumably to explain why Lady M. is such a meanie at first but later gets the sads when her husband murders some kids in front of her eyes.Macbeth personally setting fire to Macduff’s wife and children is only one of many narrative innovations. Another is having Duncan’s son, Malcolm (Jack Reynor), in the bedroom when Macbeth hacks up King Duncan »

Ahoy folks. I’ve been tackling Academy Award and Golden Globe predictions for a while now, as you all know, but there are of course other awards and/or precursors worth mentioning. Over the rest of the season, I’ll be trying to figure those out too, with today marking the starting point for 2015 as I attempt to decode what the Screen Actors Guild might do (with today also Black Friday, as we all do shopping, voters in various precursors are watching screeners). SAG is one of the most important precursors, mainly because it shows off what the acting branch of the Academy might be thinking. This year, with such a wide open race in almost all categories, you have to imagine that SAG will be one of the biggest guild announcements of the year. Below you’ll see my predictions in all of the SAG categories, but keep in »

Jose here. As a non-American, Thanksgiving has always been my favorite Us holiday because it's the time of the year when it's socially acceptable for people to put marshmallows and cranberries on everything. A practice which I refuse to stop during the other 364 days of the year, but which for 24 hours helps me bond with the people I love, as I argue about why movies with subtitles are as nourishing as turkey and gravy.
Other than complex carbs, I'm also thankful for
...J.Law away from Dior's gold and diamond shackles. She has rarely looked better than in the black Ralph Lauren she wore to one of the Mockingjay: Part 2 premieres.
...Charlotte Rampling's skinny jeans in 45 Years.
...3D movies that challenge everything I thought about the medium (thank you Gaspar Noe and Wim Wenders)
...for world cinema, and for the opportunity I've had to talk to so many international filmmakers this year. »

"I'm not so sure I want to grow up anymore..." Paramount has released yet another new trailer for the animated movie The Little Prince, based on the beloved story Le Petit Prince which is shown in this using stop-motion.

Back in April, just weeks before it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, a new trailer debuted for The Little Prince. While the film has already been released in France, China and several other international markets, Paramount Pictures set a March 18, 2016 release date for this animated adaptation in the U.S. Today the studio has unveiled another trailer for The Little Prince, which could be a huge hit when it arrives in theaters next spring.
From Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda) comes the first-ever animated feature film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's iconic masterpiece, The Little Prince. At the heart of it all is The Little Girl, who's being prepared by her mother for the very grown-up world in which they live - only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator.

Comic book movies. For the last fifteen or so years of my life, you have scratched an itch that I thought I would never reach. It’s 2015 and everyone knows who the Avengers are, Batman and Superman are finally coming to blows and an movie adaptation of 100 Bullets is actually in the works.
Yes, it’s good to be an adult who is still fixated on the characters he loved back when he was picking his nose and eating the findings.
One of the best thing about comic book movies now being the undisputed champion of all the film genres is seeing which route the creators are going to take when deciding on the tone of their film. You could go down the DC path of grim and gritty, like a depressed curried egg sandwich at the beach, or embrace the absurdity like Marvel does, sometimes a little bit too much. »

"Look at that - the stars are out!" This looks so lovely. A new set of trailers have been uploaded online for the French animated film The Little Prince, from director Mark Osborne based on the beloved book of the same name. We've already been posting a number of trailers, but these new ones have English voices thanks to an entirely new voice cast including: Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Paul Rudd, Benicio del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Ricky Gervais, Albert Brooks, and Bud Cort. I love the animation style of this movie, but I also like the way the narrative intertwines the life of a young girl growing up and the original charming Le Petit Prince story we know. I'm looking forward to this. Here's the two newest trailers for Mark Osborne's The Little Prince, direct from eOne's YouTube: The Little Prince, originally Le Petit Prince, »

Pili Groyne, 12, who played Marion Cotillard‘s daughter in the Oscar-nominated “Two Days, One Night” and now costars with Catherine Deneuve in Belgium’s Oscar submission “The Brand New Testament,” by Jaco Van Dormael, was puzzled when she met the iconic French actress. “The first day on the set, I thought, ‘That doesn’t look like Catherine Deneuve.’ Then I realized it was her stunt double,” she told moderator and TheWrap’s awards editor Steve Pond at Los Angeles’ iPic Theater on Tuesday. But Groyne had no such reservations about the script, a fanciful comic fable that has been compared to “Amelie. »

It is a sad fact that the approaching release of the animated film The Little Prince seems more poignant than ever in light of recent events – based, as it is, on the classic French novella of the same name, by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. He wrote the beloved tale in 1943, when France was under siege from the oppressive Nazi regime, which sought to control and destroy the distinctive way of life of that country, and many others. While this adaptation – written by Irena Brignull (The Boxtrolls) is an updated version of the story, it clearly captures the essence of the novella’s message about peace, individuality and creativity, as we can see from the new trailer.

While Kung Fu Panda will get yet another iteration earlier next year, a few months later, the director of the original film, Mark Osborne, will premiere a far more intriguing animation here in the United States. The Little Prince is based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry‘s famous 1943 novel and adapted by The Boxtrolls‘ Irena Brignull, and today brings a new trailer.
The story follows a pilot who lands in the desert, but that’s seemingly only one aspect of the tale. Premiering to mostly favorable response at Cannes this past May, hopefully it’ll be an early-year treat. Featuring a voice cast of Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Paul Rudd, Benicio del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Ricky Gervais, Albert Brooks, and Bud Cort, check out the new trailer below.
