With filming kicking off in the fall of 2014, things have been pretty quiet around "Blue Valentine" and "The Place Beyond The Pines" director Derek Cianfrance's "The Light Between Oceans." The picture didn't pop up as some expected on the festival circuit in 2015, but the official release date for the movie now paints a worrying picture for the movie. Disney has officially slated the drama to hit theaters on September 2nd. Labor Day weekend is traditionally a dumping ground, and this year is not much different, with the Natalie Dormer horror flick "Patient Zero," and Relativity thriller "Solace," starring Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins, set to arrive (though things could change for this picture, which has already been released internationally, given the instability of the studio). Last year, the big movie wide release movie for the holiday crowd was "The Transporter Refueled." In 2014, it was the horror "As »

There's striking when the iron is hot, and then there's Yorgos Lanthimos' ever growing schedule. While he took two years between "Dogtooth" and "The Alps," and another four until "The Lobster" which debuted on the festival circuit last year, and comes to U.S. cinemas this spring, the director is now starting to up the pace. He's already in pre-production on "The Favorite," a period drama that will star Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, and now he's got another gig brewing.

Reilly, Léa Seydoux & Ben Whishaw Deadline reports that Lanthimos will co-write and direct "The Killing Of A Sacred Deer" (good title). Described as a psychological thriller with a supernatural touch, the story is about a young man seeking vengeance, and a doctor fighting for the survival of his family. »

In his Fantastic Fest review, Michael Haffner says the movie, “is ultimately a dark comedy that cuts into the center of society’s need for companionship.”

If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into The Woods. A desperate Man escapes from The Hotel to The Woods where The Loners live and falls in love, although it is against their rules.

Before starring in the highly-anticipated big budget spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Colin Farrell returns to his indie roots with a bizarre love story entitled The Lobster. After making the festival rounds last year, Alchemy has released the first trailer, just over one month before it hits theaters on March 11. This futuristic romance from director Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth) is set in a world like no other.

We’ve got all kinds of romances at the cinema this year. Love is blossoming amid zombie apocalypses and inspiring superpowered vengeance and overcoming Nicholas Sparks-ian brushes with death. But when it comes to sheer weirdness, all of these love stories pale in comparison to Yorgos Lanthimos‘ The Lobster, which is set in a world where singletons who […]

Yorgos Lanthimos' first English-language effort, "The Lobster" (Alchemy, March 11), is entirely in tune with the film most of us have seen, the wittily high-concept taboo-buster "Dogtooth," which was nominated for an Oscar. Working again with his co-screenwriter on his last three films, Efthimis Filippou, Lanthimos felt ready to expand his horizons beyond what was available to him in Greece, having moved to England four years ago. Watch: Rachel Weisz and Golden Globe Nominee Jane Fonda Talk Paolo Sorrentino's 'Youth' (Exclusive Video) His multi-country cast ranges from Irishman Colin Farrell, Brits Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, and Olivia Coleman, Frenchwoman Lea Seydoux, American John C. Reilly, and Greek Angeliki Papoulia, who described the film as "funny, violent and sweet" at last year's Cannes, where "The Lobster" debuted to positive notices and won the Jury Prize. Added Reilly, "It's very subversive and funny and honest about »

If the past 24 hours have been dominated with whimsical summer blockbuster, then today’s snippet from Lanthimos’ genre hybrid ought to act as the perfect palette cleanser. Thrusting Colin Farrell’s David into a dystopian future, the narrative driving The Lobster orbits around one single and ingenious premise: singletons are forced to find love within 45 days or they’re banished to the woods and transformed into animals.
Such a bizarre twist of events naturally breeds an air of palpable awkwardness between the residents at The Hotel, with Rachel Weisz, John C. Riley, Léa Seydoux, and Ben Whishaw joining the list of hapless romantics in search of a significant other – lest the turn into woodland creatures. With an excellent premise at its core, »

Actor Colin Farrell seems to have quite the knack for picking out interesting roles. Sure, every so often he'll show up in bigger films like Horrible Bosses or the upcoming Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, but more often than not, he tends to stick to relatively dark, low budget affair like In Bruges or Saving Mr. Banks (which, while not quite a low-key affair, had a surprising performance from the Irish thespian). This upcoming film, The Lobster, seems to be more in the spirit of the weird, dark films the actor has done in the past.
Directed by Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos (who also co-wrote the picture), The Lobster tells the story of a dystopian future. In this future, single people are sent away to a place called The Hotel. There, they have 45 days to find a mate, and if they should fail, they will be transformed into »

"Have you ever danced with anybody?" Alchemy has debuted the official Us trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' latest film called The Lobster, starring Colin Farrell. The film is mostly in English, set in a dystopian future where single people end up at a villa where they must find a mate within 45 days or be turned into an animal. It's a brilliant mockery of modern society and romance, and some moviegoers will totally fall or it, while others will find it annoying. The full cast includes Rachel Weisz, Léa Seydoux, John C. Reilly and Ben Whishaw. This trailer starts to show more of the second half where Farrell ends up with a group hiding out in the forest, all in pursuit of Weisz. I seriously enjoyed this film - read my Nyff review. Enjoy! Here's the full theatrical Us trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster, direct from YouTube: In a dystopian near future, »

Nothing says “modern love” quite like awkward dancing, trapping rabbits, target practice and a Heimlich maneuver. Alchemy netted U.S. rights to Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster last year in Cannes, where the film won the Jury Prize. It’s now readying a March 11 release and has dropped the first domestic trailer. Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly, Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw and Olivia Colman star in the love story that’s set in the near future. There, single people… »
After a long lap around the festival circuit, from Cannes to Tiff and a commercial release in most of Europe at this point, The Lobster, the latest bit of satiric weirdness from Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Alps) nears its domestic release (March 11) on this side of the pond. Thus, a new trailer has been cut.The trailer below should be familiar to those who remember the previous trailers, with text-inserts featuring a host of critics' ebullient exclamations. More importantly, this new one has more Olivia Colman, which is always a good thing.For the uninitiated, The Lobster is the young Greek director's internationally star-studded English language crossover, and features Colin Farrell as a lonely man who goes to a specialized singles resort to find love, at the...

The Lobster sounds like an insane film, yet the trailer just makes so much sense. Colin Farrell stars as David, a single man who is taken to a place called The Hotel, where, in accordance with the law, he must find a mate. If he doesn't find a partner in 45 days, he will be transformed into an animal - literally. He's brought along his dog, who was formerly his brother, only he "didn't make it." You might have guessed that David chooses a lobster. Rachel Weisz costars as a potential love interest in the bizarre-looking film, which has shown at both the Cannes and Sundance film festivals. Take a look; the film opens on March 11! »

Read More: Cannes Review: Yorgos Lanthimos' 'The Lobster' Explores a Crazy World More Familiar Than It Looks One of the most ambitious titles to play on the festival circuit last year, Yorgos Lanthimos' "The Lobster" is finally coming to U.S. theaters this March and, trust us, you've never seen anything quite like it before. Set in somewhat of a dystopian future where society highly values relationships, the movie stars Colin Farrell as an architect who checks into a hotel after his wife leaves him. The hotel acts as a dark and twisted dating service, as the architect has just 45 days to find a new partner or else he'll be transformed into an animal of his choosing. John C. Reilly, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Olivia Colman and Lea Seydoux co-star. After picking up the film after its splashy Cannes debut last May, Alchemy will release "The Lobster »

If you need to wash the blitzkrieg of Hollywood advertising out of your eyes following last night's Super Bowl spot frenzy, the arthouse has you covered.

Coming out of the Cannes Film Festival, one of our favorites was Yorgos Lanthimos‘ Kubrickian, uproarious drama The Lobster. Toplined by Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw and John C. Reilly, it follows the peculiarly fascinating story in which singledom is banned and people are forced to find a match within 45 days or they turned into the animal of their choice. Finally set to arriving in the U.S. next month, we have the first domestic trailer.
We said in our review, “In this first half, The Lobster closely resembles Dogtooth and Lanthimos again exhibits his aptitude for creating insular, ruthlessly regimented microcosms through which to unleash his scathing satire. Unlike that of its predecessor, however, the attributes of this warped world are immediately familiar, even relatable. As a result, the director’s trademark deadpan humor is no longer simply droll, but uproarious – and also inescapably implicating. Lanthimos and his Dp, »

When asked about their inclination for kidnapping comedies, Joel Coen recently told Variety, “I’m not sure why. They are all very different. We should probably give that a rest.” He and Ethan Coen are responsible for three of the finest kidnapping comedies ever made, and are perhaps adding a fourth to their résumé this weekend.
The addition of comedy into a crime story is hardly a new prospect, but the kidnapping comedy is a wonderfully specific little nook in this often darkly funny cinematic world. The Coens practically own this genre — if you can call it a genre –having covered and re-covered it in such uniquely different ways.
Their fourth kidnapping comedy (although I doubt they would refer to any of these films as such), Hail, Caesar!, follows a Hollywood studio fixer (Josh Brolin) whose work life begins to unravel after the kidnapping of one of his biggest stars, »

This clip is called ‘Coupling’ and where better to share it first in the world than here, and now:

This past weekend, fans gathered for a Celebration of Harry Potter 2016. And part of the festivities saw a few franchise icons gather to reminisce about their time spent making the first eight movies. On hand were Rupert Grint, Evanna Lynch, Matthew Lewis, Katie Leung and Bonnie Wright. We now have a new highlight reel from this celebration, which goes behind-the-scenes of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It also catches up with all the fans at a Celebration of Harry Potter, and we get to hear from the original cast, as they offer their own take on this new spinoff.
Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) stars in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander, under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four Harry Potter blockbusters. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed »
