With the onset of spring comes one of the biggest events on the film industry calendar – The Cannes Film Festival. The annual event will welcome jetsetters from across the globe this May as filmmakers, producers and actors descend upon the French town to raise the profiles of their current projects. And one distributor is buttering up crowds before the chaos begins, as La Pacte has dropped the first teaser for its bloody fantasy outing, The Tale Of Tales.
Previous Cannes award-winner Matthew Garone is behind the camera on this one, after scoring two Cannes Grand Jury Prizes for his homespun movies Gomorra and Reality. His newest offering, a fantastical weaving of three stories, is adapted from a series of 17th century fairy tales penned by Italian writer Giambattista Basile. And judging by the dark, very-nsfw imagery displayed here in this initial teaser, it’d be a pleasant surprise to see »

Fresh off a nomination for the Palme D’Or at this year’s upcoming Cannes film festival is Matteo Garrone’s The Tale of Tales, a fantasy based on 17th Century Italian fairy tales by Giambattista Basile. The director behind Gomorrah and Reality is taking a foray into the English language, and this first look at his latest suggests something much darker, strange, yet fantastical than his previous entries.
There’s no full synopsis just yet, but The Tale of Tales stars John C. Reilly, Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, and Toby Jones in a series of three stories, all done in a period setting, that intertwine. This French trailer announces its premiere July 1, but it’ll first play in Cannes followed by a release in Italy starting May 14. Watch it above, and consider it Nsfw:

Dead dragons, raw heart munching and John C Reilly in a big gold crown. Here's a first trailer for the fantasy movie, The Tale Of Tales...
Nb: The following trailer contains some images that could be considered Not Safe For Work.
Salma Hayek tucking into a gigantic raw heart at a long banquet table. Toby Jones in a wood-panelled bedroom, fondling a large creature that looks a bit like an elephant seal. These are just some of the extraordinary sequences you'll find in the extraordinary trailer for The Tale Of Tales.
Based on the collection of Italian fairytales of the same name, The Tale Of Tales is the latest feature from Matteo Garrone, best known, perhaps, for his unvarnished drama about Italian organised crime, Gomorra.
Also starring Vincent Cassel and John C Reilly, The Tale Of Tales looks like a full-blooded and surreal fantasy - akin, perhaps, to a cross »
The nearly dialogue-free teaser for Matteo Garrone’s The Tales of Tales pits provocative fairy tale images against the lovely Faure's "The Pavane in F-sharp minor, Op. 50," suggesting a film of wonder and awe and abundant horrors. Instead of telling us anything about the tale, loosely based on Giambattista Basile’s 17th century collection of stories, the teaser presents a series of enigmatic, unrelated images both beautiful and brutal: blood-blotched organs and elegant gowns; Selma Hayek eating the heart of a felled beast; John C. Reilly gritting his teeth and smiling with his innards strew about; Toby Jones petting a weird, rhino-esque animal; and Vincent Cassel in the waning moments of a bacchanal. If Snow White and the Huntsman was too soft for you, this might do the trick. Garrone, best known stateside for his 2008 mafia movie Gomorra, has twice won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival.

Shooting straight to the top of any self-respecting fantasy fan's must-watch list should be Matteo Garrone's (Gomorrah, Reality) latest, Tale Of Tales, which has just been announced as debuting in competition at next month's Cannes Film Festival. Brimming with kings & queens, monsters & magic, blood, gore and sex, The Tale Of Tales is a classic medieval fantasy that looks to out-crazy even the likes of John Boorman's Excalibur and Terry Gilliam's Time Bandits. With an all-star cast including John C. Reilly, Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel and Toby Jones, Tale Of Tales is based on the writings of 17th Century Italian author Giambattista Basile, and judging by this slightly unsafe for work trailer, looks absolutely fantastic. Check it out for yourself....

Read More: Cannes Wish List: 20 Films We Hope to See at the 2015 Festival Anyone who thought that Disney's "Cinderella" wasn't dark enough need only wait for "The Tale of Tales," Italian filmmaker Matteo Garrone's 2015 entry to the Palme d'Or competition at the Cannes Film Festival. Be warned though, this trailer is not for the faint of heart. Based on a 17th century collection of fairy tales by Italian author Giambattista Basile, the film weaves realistic and fantastical elements together into three different storylines, one of which involves Salma Hayek eating the heart of a giant beast. Vincent Cassel, John C. Reilly and Toby Jones also star. Matteo Garrone is no stranger to competition—he won the Grand Prix at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival for his film "Reality." "The Tale of Tales" will mark his English-language film debut, and will premiere in May 2015 at Cannes. Read More: 2015 Cannes Film »

There are certainly many film heavyweights you might expect to see on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, but John C. Reilly isn't one of them. Yet this is set to change this year. With roles in both Yorgos Lanthimos' "The Lobster" and Matteo Garrone's "The Tale Of Tales," the actor's presence will be felt, and a new trailer for the latter has arrived. The picture, which also features Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, Stacy Martin, Alba Rohrwacher and Massimo Ceccherini, is a loose screen adaptation of fairy tales by Italian poet Giambattista Basile. And this new, mostly dialogue free look promises a visual feast if nothing else, and we're very excited to hear Alexandre Desplat's complete score. The film opens in Italy on May 15th. There's no U.S. distributor yet, but once reaction from Cannes rolls in, that's likely to change. Watch below, and »

Announcing the lineup for this year's Cannes Film Festival yesterday, Thierry Frémaux noted that Nanni Moretti's Mia madre had just opened in Italy, and indeed, the first round of reviews had begun appearing the day before—and they're generally positive. Meantime, Moretti, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone have issued a joint statement: ""We’re delighted and proud to be representing Italy in competition." Sorrentino's Youth stars Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Paul Dano and Jane Fonda; Garrone's The Tale of Tales features Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, John C. Reilly and Alba Rohrwacher. » - David Hudson »

Mosaku joins Toby Jones, Lesley Sharp and Adeel Akhtar, also in starring roles in a project that is set on a single street in South London, and is described as a portrait of a road (Pepys Road) transformed by soaring property prices, where what was once the home of modest lower-middle class families, has been continuously gentrified into a street of multi-million pound houses.

“People are objects that aren’t really there.”
It’s a line that’s used to describe a breakdown, a lapse in reality, experienced by the show’s leading man, but it might as well be a description of the ensemble of Fox’s Wayward Pines. The show’s characters are either painted in broad strokes or rendered insubstantial by pat dialogue and flat, lifeless staging, costuming and set design. Terrence Howard and Melissa Leo get in a strong rasher of ham as, respectively, a rum raisin-slurping sheriff and a deranged nurse, and Carla Gugino’s Kate shows promises of depth beyond “protagonist’s love interest,” but the rest are forgettable.

“Truman Capote’s ‘In Cold Blood’ has been riveting audiences since it first hit the literary scene almost fifty years ago, and it continues to have that same thrilling, timeless appeal today,” commented David Glasser, TWC’s president and COO. “We are extremely excited to be partnering with Gary, Doug and the whole Flying Studios team to bring what’s sure to be an unbelievable series to TV viewers.”
The 1966 novel was last adapted for television in 1996 with a telepic starring Anthony Edwards, Eric Roberts and Sam Neill. The iconic story has been given the silver screen treatment three times, first in 1967 starring Robert Blake and Scott Wilson. »

The Weinstein Company has optioned TV rights to Truman Capote's 1966 bestseller In Cold Blood with the aim of making it a TV event series. It would be the first TV series treatment of the seminal narrative nonfiction book, which most recently surfaced as dueling feature films: 2005’s Capote, which won Philip Seymour Hoffman the Best Actor Oscar for playing Capote; and 2006’s Infamous with Toby Jones playing the author. It was a 1967 Richard Brooks-penned film starring… »
Expected to be a Cannes Film Festival entry, today we get our first look at The Tale of Tales, the newest film from Matteo Garrone (Gamorrah) and his English-language debut no less. The film stars Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, John C. Reilly, Toby Jones, Shirley Henderson, Alba Rohrwacher and Massimo Ceccherini and is based on fairy tale collection "The Tale of Tales" by 17th century Italian author Giambattista Basile. The story will interweave three separate story strands bookended by brief bits in which Italians Alba Rohrwacher and Massimo Ceccherini will play a street circus family. In one tale Hayek will play a jealous queen who forfeits her husband's life. In another, Cassel plays a king whose passion is stoked by two mysterious sisters. readmore postid="166652" Watch the teaser below, which is pretty much just a visual preview for anyone that doesn't know Italian as voice over pretty much dominates the scene, »

On Thursday morning, the Cannes Film Festival will unveil their official slate, but it's perhaps not a coincidence that some of the more high profile international movies, expected to be part of the lineup, are getting the promo ball rolling. Over the weekend, we saw the first trailer for Paolo Sorrentino's "Youth," and now comes his countryman Matteo Garrone's "The Tale Of Tales." Read More: 20 Films We Hope To See At The 2015 Cannes Film Festival Featuring a great array of ensemble talent including Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, John C. Reilly, Toby Jones, Stacy Martin, Alba Rohrwacher and Massimo Ceccherini, the film is a loose screen adaptation of the fairy tales by Italian poet Giambattista Basile. The first teaser appears to be from Italian television and has some egregious voiceover, but it does provide a preview of what looks to be a pretty fantastical film. "The Tale Of Tales »

Set on a single street in South London, Capital follows the residents of Pepys Road as they receive an anonymous postcard through their front doors reading: "We Want What You Have".
As the street tries to figure out who is behind the hate campaign, interweaving stories featuring the ensemble of characters reveal lives filled with love, loss, fear, greed and family.
The three-part drama is directed by Euros Lyn and produced by Kudos.
Jones said: "Obviously, I am thrilled to be part of such a fantastic, diverse and talented cast, and also I'm »

You know, Martin Scorsese has a lot to answer for. Years after the likes of Mean Streets, Goodfellas and Casino, budding filmmakers are still churning out New York set mobster-movies – to ever decreasing returns. And so to By the Gun, which stars Scorsese alum Harvey Keitel, and tells yet another story of a wannabe mafioso who finally becomes a made man for it all to fall apart. Remind you of another film? It should!
By the Gun tells the story of Nick Tortano (Barnes), a smooth-talking and ambitious criminal from the streets of Boston. After years spent working and idolizing the Italian gangsters higher up the chain, he has to find a way to prove »
