Scarlett Johansson records song with Massive Attack

25 May 2011 7:28 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hollywood actor teams up with Bristol band to cover George Gershwin's Summertime for Mexican movie soundtrack

Massive Attack have collaborated with actor Scarlett Johansson on the soundtrack to a forthcoming Mexican thriller. Dias de Gracia (Days of Grace), directed by Everardo Gout, also features original music by Atticus Ross, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, and Shigeru Umebayashi.

Dias de Gracia is a tale of murder and kidnapping split across three separate storylines, with different composers scoring each narrative thread. Each segment takes place during a different World Cup final, in 2002, 2006 and 2010.

Bad Seeds Cave and Ellis scored the 2002 story after Gout heard their work on The Proposition and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. "They created a piece that superbly integrates sounds, noises, urban and animal backgrounds, that could have only been composed by them," he said.

Cannes 2011. Out of Competition. "Wu Xia," "Pirates 4," "Bollywood," More

19 May 2011 1:45 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Updated through 5/19.

Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, which opened the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, already has its own entry, of course (and it's still being updated, too), but it's here that I'll collect all that's notably linkable related to the films in the Official Selection yet screening Out of Competition (excluding Special Screenings, which'll have their own upcoming roundup). We already have plenty on Jodie Foster's The Beaver here; and I'm sure Christophe Honoré's Beloved will warrant an entry of its own when it closes the Festival on May 22.

 

"Bursting with light and color, and a torrent of martial arts action both swift and savage (arguably the best that lead actor Donnie Yen has choreographed for years), Wu Xia is coherently developed and stylishly directed by Peter Ho-Sun Chan to provide unashamedly pleasurable popular entertainment," writes Maggie Lee in the Hollywood Reporter, where Karen Chu interviews Chan. »

Along with the trailer for Hong Sang-soo's The Day He Arrives, another's just appeared for Kim Ki-duk's Arirang.

Cannes Film Festival 2011: Film Lineup: The Tree Of Life

15 April 2011 8:25 AM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

The Film Lineup for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival (Competition, Un Certain Regard, Out of Competition) has been announced. The 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival (le Festival de Cannes), ”founded in 1946, is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious film festivals. The private festival is held annually (usually in May) at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, in the resort town of Cannes, in the south of France…The President of the Jury is American actor Robert De Niro.” One of the surprises for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival is that “Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris opens the festival on May 11. The film’s all-star cast of Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Carla Bruni, Marion Cotillard, Kathy Bates, Gad Elmaleh, Léa Seydoux and Adrien Brody are expected to attend the Croisette to launch the festival.

The complete line up for the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival, which takes place 11th – 22nd May, has been announced and this year seems like a less than stellar competition, with only a handful of serious competitors airing “in competition”.

Line-Up for 2011 Cannes Film Festival Includes ‘Midnight in Paris,’ ‘Tree of Life,’ ‘Melancholia’

14 April 2011 1:36 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The anticipation of summer isn’t reserved for superheroes and sequels – it’s also the time for the Cannes Film Festival, which is like an actual World Series of international film. Occurring this year from May 11th through May 22nd, this year has many anticipated titles from its list of “all-star” directors that includes Woody Allen, Pedro Almoldovar, Terence Malick, Lars Von Trier, etc. Out of all of these films, I am most excited for Von Trier’s Melancholia, though Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive is a close second.

Released today, here’s the list of films playing at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, with many of these titles bound to be big deals in the movie world during and after their premieres:

Opening film:

Woody AllenMidnight in Paris

Main competition:

Pedro Almodóvar – La Piel que Habito

Bertrand Bonello – L’Apollonide: Souvenirs de la Maison Close

Pedro on the Croisette: The Skin I Live Will Indeed Be Showcased in Cannes

14 April 2011 9:40 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Hours after Variety broke the story that the film was indeed going to be ready for Cannes, the highly coveted The Skin I Live In has been confirmed as part of the 2011 edition of the Cannes Film Festival. Pedro Almodóvar's has been a V.I.P of the festival for the longest time and being that this is his most risky project and enters new territory with its change of genre -- it was almost impossible not to imagine this anywhere else but Cannes. We expect this to play towards the end of the festival - we're sure that he is putting the final touches on the film. The Spanish filmmaker recently shared in his good news declaring: “I'm going to Cannes with the ambition to perform a good role in this worldwide rendez-vous, the most important of the cinema d'auteur, but I am not thinking about prizes.

2011 Cannes Film Festival lineup announced

14 April 2011 8:12 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

The 2011 Cannes Film Festival has announced its screening/competition lineup. THR has a complete breakdown, but here are some highlights:

Terrence Malick's "Tree of Life" is in the competition category, which means stars Brad Pitt and Sean Penn are likely to be seen at Cannes. Penn will also be there for Paolo Sorrentino's "This Must Be the Place."

Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive" is also going to be up for awards and therefore stars Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan can be expected to show at the festival. "Drive" is about a stunt driver who moonlights driving getaway cars for criminals. It hits theaters stateside in September.

There is a movie out of Britain by Lynne Ramsay that has everyone in Hollywood buzzing. It's called "We Need to Talk About Kevin," which stars Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly as the parents of a child who commits a school shooting. »

Cannes 2011 Lineup Announced! Mostly “Color-Free” But We’ll Be There Anyway!

14 April 2011 6:37 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Hot off the presses…! Earlier this morning, the lineup of the 64th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, which will run from May 11th to the 22nd, was announced, and it’s a mostly good one!

I’m especially excited about the festival this year, because, as I’ve already announced, Shadow And Act will be at Cannes this year for the first time, and hopefully not the last! MsWOO will be there, delivering the best coverage you’ll find online (and that’s no hyperbole ), particularly from an African Diasporic Pov. So, you should be excited too!

Several familiar names and Cannes alumni will be returning with titles this year, from Pedro Almodovar to Aki Kaurismäki, the Dardenne Brothers, Lars von Trier and others. Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris is the opening night film; he’s certainly no stranger to the festival.

As for “black representation” this year… »

Cannes Film Fest lures “Pirates,” celebrities and “The Beaver”

14 April 2011 3:40 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Some films were expected (hello, “The Tree of Life”). Some were complete surprises (Almodovar’s “The Skin I Live In”). But just about every title announced as part of the 64th Cannes Film Festival carried serious weight and anticipation.

Malick, Almodovar, Miike, Von Trier, Ramsay and Allen are the heavy hitters in Cannes’ official Competition.

Outside the boundaries, Cannes will be hosting the world premiere of the fourth “Pirates” film, with Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz expected to attend. And Jodie Foster continues her “Beaver” press tour with a stop on the Croistette. Is that a good fit?

The official Cannes lineup was made this morning in Paris. We have the full list below:

Feature Film Jury

Robert De Niro, President – Actor, Director / USA

The Short Film And Cinefondation Jury

Michel Gondry, President – Director / France

Un Certain Regard Jury

Emir Kusturica, President – Director / Serbia »

Before announcing the list, Thierry Frémaux told us that there were 1715 films submitted for consideration into the festival from 33 different countries. In all, 19 films were accepted with four of them being directed by female directors which is apparently a record for Cannes.

So, without further ado, here’s the line up which I’ll update as an when they come in.

2011 Cannes Film Festival Lineup Announced

14 April 2011 3:07 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Photo: Cannes Film Festival This morning the Cannes Film Festival announced the line-up for the 64th edition of the fest, which will run from May 11-22. Before getting to the films, managing director of the festival, Thierry Fremaux, announced that 1715 films were submitted for consideration, representing 33 countries. Of those films 19 were included in competition, and of those 19, four were directed by female directors, a record for the fest.

As for the films included in the festival, the competition looks fierce. Just a few names you might recognize among the competition crowd include Terrence Malick, Pedro Almodovar, Takashi Miike, Nicolas Winding Refn, Lars Von Trier and Lynne Ramsay. Beyond that many of the names are new to me, but that's the number one reason I go to Cannes, the international flavor of this festival surpasses any of the major fests you'll find in North America.
