Ahead of the home video release of the film, Keen’s audition for Logan has been made available and we’ve been treated to a first look today. If you were ever wondering why the relatively unknown actress was cast as a key role, this audition tape should take care of all of that.

Given the success of Logan, we presume that at some point we’ll see Dafne Keen reprise her role as the ferocious Laura in some spin-off of the X-Men franchise—at least, James Mangold’s certainly given us reason to hope. For now, Keen has taken a role as the eponymous character in the upcoming film Ana, set to be directed by Charles McDougal, whose TV credits run the gamut from Sex And The City to House Of Cards. According to Deadline, the project has some similarities with her breakout role. In Ana, she will also “form an odd friendship” and go on a road trip with an old—relatively speaking—dude here played by Luis Guzmán. This time the objective, however, is not to save mutant-kind, but to ”save him from bankruptcy, or worse.” But it doesn’t seem likely Keen will rip a guy’s head off with »

The two form an odd friendship after Ana meets Rafa in a chance encounter and they embark on a road trip to try and save… »
It’s hard to imagine Literally, Right Before Aaron existing without The Graduate as a template. Ryan Eggold’s lame-brained paint-by-numbers romantic comedy relies a little too heavy on functioning as homage to the Mike Nichols classic. The story is one we’ve seen a thousand times before: a white heterosexual guy who barely gets by and is still finding himself in his late 20s (or so) struggles to get over the pretty girl that’s moved on. (500) Days of Summer at least told the same emotionally-charged story with its own gusto. Here a non-linear attempt is made with an obnoxious variable aspect ratio device: “present day” scenes take place in letterboxed scope, while moments in the past are full frame. Perhaps it’ll look cool on VOD.

Every year, celebrities, filmmakers, journalists and movie fans flock to the Tribeca neighborhood in lower Manhattan for the Tribeca Film Festival, an illustrious celebration of film and television that features some of the most exciting projects and panel discussions of any media festival in the country.
Founded by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff in 2001, shortly after the attacks of 9/11, the festival has helped revitalize the city and remind both filmmakers and fans alike of New York City’s valued place in film and TV while becoming a welcoming community for voices and perspectives from all over the world. “It’s also a fabric of our city. So whether or not it’s a film from Israel or Palestine or something for kids, our festival was about community and it still is,” Rosenthal tells Et. “It’s about bringing community together.”
The 2017 festival, which runs April 19-30, continues to expand beyond film and TV with »
Before I even begin, have you looked closely enough at the photo above? Who cares what movie this is? Look at Luis Guzman! P.S. Luis Guzman is one of my favorite “That Guy” actors of all-time. My history liking this guy goes all the way back to Crocodile Dundee 2. He made all of us love him in Boogie Nights but Guzman has been doing his thing for decades. Ok, back to the subject at hand: Dwayne Johnson. Fewer people in Hollywood have stories as amazing as Dwayne Johnson. He’s about as “Arnold Schwarzenegger” as you can possibly get in
