Legion debuts in early 2017 and is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television.

The series stars Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Katie Aselton, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder – with Bill Irwin and Aubrey Plaza.

New sneak peek at Noah Hawley’s X-Men series Legion

1 July 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming about a month after the release of a first look image, Noah Hawley has unveiled another sneak peek at his latest show, Legion, on his Instagram. The picture was taken by the writer during a sound mixing session and shows Dan StevensDavid Haller in what appears to be mental asylum attire. Check it out below…

 

Meanwhile, producer Simon Kinberg has been chatting to MovieFone about the show, stating that: “Noah [Hawley] is a genius — he wrote and created and directed the pilot to Legion — and it is a very different sensibility than anything we’ve done with the X-Men movies. Almost, I would say, as radically different as Deadpool was from the mainline X-Men movies. Legion is, again, in a different direction: really character-based, really granular in terms of getting inside the details of the characters. It stands as part of the X-Men universe, but it stands apart from it as well. »

Film Review: ‘Fool Moon’

28 June 2016 7:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Blame it on the moonlight if you will, but any folly stays resolutely earthbound in “Fool Moon,” a plainly sincere but tooth-achingly precious directorial debut for actor-poet-filmmaker Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet. Often a grave, sympathetic presence on camera — well-used by such auteurs as André Téchiné, Bertrand Tavernier and Christophe Honoré — the likeable 28-year-old here comes unstuck under his own gaze; the fusion of film, theater and self-composed verse in this wispy young love triangle is more puppyishly ambitious than it is artful. Premiered as a special (read: not quite classifiable) screening at Cannes, this fully French but less-than-full “Moon” is unlikely to rise in many non-domestic territories.

“The strength love requires asks too much of me — I shake like a leaf,” wails Ondine (Amandine Truffy), the willowy girlfriend of bookish Parisian Paul (Leprince-Ringuet), abruptly terminating their romance following a seemingly innocuous afternoon scuffle in the park. If she finds their relationship draining, »

Cannes Today: New Talent Emerges

27 May 2016 3:35 PM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Halfway through the Cannes Film Festival, buzz is hearing about “Jackie”, now in post-production, an account of the days of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in the immediate aftermath of John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963, directed by Pablo Larraín whose Directors’ Fortnight contender “Neruda” is receiving raves here.  Another hot Directors’ Fortnight film “Mean Dreams” with Bill Paxton is praised by one important film buyer as “Mud” meets “Cold in July” in a tense coming-of-age drama about a 15-year-old boy.  And Sony Pictures Classics has snatched U.S. rights to the German Competition comedy, “Toni Erdmann”.

This year in the Cannes Film Festival’s Official Competition Section, there are no first time film directors, only established masters, some praised and some panned.  However, Cannes Official Un Certain Regard specifically shows emerging filmmakers who are considered to be the next generation of master auteurs of cinema. Out of its 17 films, seven were first features from Romania, France, Israel, USA, Argentina, Finland and the Netherlands. Three of the seven are by women: Stéphanie Di  Giusto’s “La Danseuse” (“The Dancer”) is about Loïe Fuller, the toast of the Folies Bergères at the turn of the 20th century and an inspiration for Toulouse-Lautrec and the Lumière Brothers. 

Maha Haj From Israel debuted on the first day with “Personal Affairs”, about an old couple in Nazareth and their son and daughter who live on the other side of the border.  Other first films are the much-anticipated “The Red Turtle”, a dialogue-free animated feature from Studio Ghibli but made in France and directed by Dutch-born, London-based animator Michael Dudok de Wit, the Finnish-German-Swedish “The Happiest Day In The Life Of Olli Mäki” and Bogdan Mirica’s “Dogs”.  The debut So. Korean film, “Train to Busan”, showed in the Official Midnight Screening section and featured a zombie-virus breaking out in South Korea, and a couple of passengers struggling to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan – enough to make me want to stop traveling.

Fool Moon” by France’s Gregoire Leprinr-Foret had a Special Screening within the Official selection and received mixed reviews.  In Critics Week, three of ten films selected and judged bycritics as the best films of the year thus far are first features: K. Rajapal’s drama “A Yellow Bird” from Singapore and France about a Singaporean Indian man trying to reconnect with his estranged family after he is released from prison, Mehmet Can Mertoglu’s “Albüm” from Turkey, France and Romania (See the trailer here)  and Alessandro Comidin’s “Happy Times Will Come Soon” from Italy. The Acid sidebar of eight very independent features has two first films.

Also noticeable this year is the high number of films co-financed by the Doha Film Institute. Asgaard Farhadi's  " The Salesman" will have its world premiere in the Festival’s Official Competition where it competes for the coveted Palme d’Or.  “The Salesman” is about a couple who is forced out of their apartment due to dangerous works on a neighboring building.  It is one of two Iranian films this year.  The other, “Inversion” will play in Un Certain Regard.” Newly established Doha Film Institute lent financial support to two films showing in Un Certain Regard section – “Apprentice” (Singapore, Germany, France, Hong Kong, Qatar) written and directed by Boo Junfeng; and debut feature “Dogs” (Romania, France, Bulgaria, Qatar). Directors’ Fortnight is screens “Divines” (Morocco, France, Qatar) and three Dfi grantee films compete for top honors in the Critics Week: “Mimosas” (Spain, Morocco, France, Qatar) by Oliver Laxe; “Tramontane” (Lebanon, France, UAE, Qatar) by Vatche Boulghourjian; and “Diamond Island” (Cambodia, France, Germany, Qatar) by Davy Chou touted as poetic and beautiful, a part of what might be a Cambodian New Wave. This New Wave from Cambodia is being helped along by the Doha Film Institute whose CEO, Fatma Al Remaihi says:

“At the very core of Dfi’s film funding mandate is to contribute to World Cinema and ensure that great stories continue to be told. These projects will also inspire the young Qatari film professionals to create compelling content that will gain international acclaim.”

Shahrbanoo Sadat’s debut feature “Wolf and Sheep”, in Directors’ Fortnight, is about Sadat herself, who lives in Kabul and Denmark.  It takes place in the isolated village in Central Afghanistan where she grew up and where young boys and girls are shepherds.  International coproductions are the engine driving the film business today and this one, a Denmark-France-Sweden-Afghanistan coproduction is a prime example.  Sadat was spotted previously when her 2011 short “Vice Versa One” screened at Directors’ Fortnight and was invited to develop “Wolf And Sheep” at Cannes Cinefondation Residency in 2010, which mentors emerging talent. Virginie Devesa of the international sales company Alpha Violet picked up the film here in Cannes. Alpha Violet is also selling ”A Yellow Bird” in Critics’ Week and is representing “Luxembourg”, the newest film by Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy, whose first film “The Tribe” played in Sundance and other top fests. »

Cannes: Asghar Farhadi's 'The Salesman' joins Competition

22 April 2016 8:49 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Seven additions made to Official Selection, including Blood Father starring Mel Gibson, the new feature from Starred Up director David Mackenzie and a Joseph Kony documentary.Click here for updated Official Selection

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi is to compete for the Palme d’Or with his latest feature, The Salesman, following several additions to Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection.

The addition of the Farsi-language project, which racked up sales for Memento Films International at Berlin in February, takes the total number of films in Competition to 21.

The Salesman revolves around a couple whose relationship turns violent due to societal pressures. Long-time Farhadi collaborators Taraneh Alidoosti, who played the epnymous role in About Elly, and Shahab Hosseini, who appeared in Farhadi’s Golden Bear and Oscar-winning A Separation, co-star as the central couple.

Farhadi was last in Competition at Cannes in 2013 with his previous film, The Past, which won the Ecumenical Jury prize.

‘Confirmation’ Fact Check: Is ‘Erotomania’ Really a Thing?

16 April 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(Spoiler alert: Please don’t read this if you haven’t yet seen the HBO movie “Confirmation.”) In one of the most shocking scenes during HBO’s “Confirmation,” Missouri Sen. John Danforth (played by Bill Irwin) accuses Anita Hill (Kerry Washington) of suffering from a condition called “Erotomania,” a delusion in which a person thinks that someone, usually of higher social status, is in love with them. Danforth, Hill’s leading critic on the Senate Judiciary Committee, found an effective way to discredit Hill’s claims, essentially branding her a stalker. Though the condition sounds contrived, it’s actually quite real. »
