Watch: Nicole Kidman in First Clip from Werner Herzog's 'Queen of the Desert'

29 January 2015 10:34 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I do not know about you, but whenever Werner Herzog has a new movie coming out, I get very excited. Even if I end up not liking the movie, he always makes something unique and interesting. And, hopefully, insane. Queen of the Desert is the title of his latest, and it sounds like it could be his most traditional film. You can watch a new clip of the film below, featuring Nicole Kidman and Damian Lewis. The film is based on the true story of Gertrude Bell, who was a writer, archaeologist, political attache for the British Empire, and much more at the turn of the twentieth century. Along with Kidman and Lewis, the also film stars Robert Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence (that's big shoes to fill...) and James Franco as Henry Cadogan. We have not gotten a narrative feature from Herzog since My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done, »

Berlinale First Look: Nicole Kidman and James Franco Star in Werner Herzog's 'Queen of the Desert'

15 January 2015 11:29 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Along with seven other films from Jafar Panahi, Benoit Jacquot, Bill Condon and more, Germany's biggest film festival added Werner Herzog's latest to its competition slate this morning. Herzog will attend the Berlin premiere of "Queen of the Desert," starring Nicole Kidman as British Intelligence officer and cartographer Gertrude Bell opposite Robert Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence (better known as Lawrence of Arabia) and James Franco as British army officer Henry Cadogan. Naomi Watts was reportedly originally cast in the role of Bell before it went to fellow Aussie Kidman. Damian Lewis costars. Herzog penned and directed the $36 million epic, which wrapped in Spring 2014 (around the time when we hoped to see the film at his Telluride stomping grounds) and was shot in Morocco, Jordan and London. This is Herzog's first narrative feature since 2009's hilarious, acid entertainment "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans" starring Nicolas Cage. Now celebrating its 65th. »

Nicole Kidman Looks Regal In First Image From Queen Of The Desert

14 January 2015 1:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It has been a long and somewhat rocky road to the release of Werner Herzog’s latest feature, Queen of the Desert. However, the film will finally have its debut at the Berlin International Film Festival, and to celebrate that release, we have the first official image, featuring Nicole Kidman and James Franco.

Queen of the Desert follows the true story of Gertrude Bell (Kidman), a British traveler, cartographer, writer, archaeologist, and spy at the turn of the 20th Century. Bell was instrumental in the foundation of the current state of Jordan and Iraq, and served British Intelligence during World War I, bringing her into contact with the likes of T.E. Lawrence (played by Robert Pattinson in the film). She played a crucial role in the Middle East before, during, and after World War I, establishing close ties with tribal leaders during the war.

Playing Bell must be a daunting task for any actress, »

Berlin Adds Competition Titles From Werner Herzog, Jafar Panahi and Bill Condon

14 January 2015 5:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 65th Berlin International Film Festival added eight films to its main competition this morning, including new titles from Werner Herzog, Benoit Jacquot, Bill Condon and Jafar Panahi. The festival also added an additional 14 films to its Generation selection, which is comprised of features and shorts aimed at youths. Herzog will be in Berlin with "Queen of the Desert" starring Robert Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia), alongside Nicole Kidman as British Intelligence officer Gertrude Bell. Condon's follow-up to his poorly received "The Fifth Estate" is titled "Mr. Holmes" and stars Ian McKellen, who starred in Condon's "Gods and Monsters." Panahi's new film "Taxi" will be his third to run in competition in Berlin. The director has been banned from making movies for 20 years by his native Iran, but has continued to release new work. As previously announced, Berlin will also world premiere Terrence Malick's »

Film Nerd 2.0: Santa, 'Lawrence Of Arabia,' and the struggle with what's really real

13 January 2015 6:10 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We didn't even get to the car until about midnight, and Allen was pretty much wiped out by that point. I put him in his seat, and he was asleep before I could make it into the driver's seat. Toshi, though, was wide awake as we drove out of Hollywood, out the 101, all the way to Northridge. Even with no one else on the road, that's a solid forty-five minutes. Toshi was quiet, thinking, as I started the car. "That's your favorite movie?" "Yep." "Out of all the movies, that's the one you like the most?" "Yes." Long pause again as he thought it over. "It's good. It's good." Another long pause. "I mean, it's not my favorite. But that's good for you." I would not be surprised if "Lawrence Of Arabia" confounded either of the boys. It's not a simple movie. But it is a big beautiful movie, and »

Watch: Damian Lewis Stars as Henry VIII in BBC's 'Wolf Hall' Trailer

2 January 2015 9:40 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Will Henry VIII be Emmy winner Damian Lewis' first, great post-Nick Brody role? Directed by Peter Kosminsky and written by Peter Straughan (one half of the Oscar-nominated "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" duo), this six-part BBC drama adaptation of Hilary Mantel's novels "Wolf Hall" and "Bring Up the Bodies" will broadcast stateside on PBS April 5. Lewis plays the eighth Henry opposite top-shelf Shakespeare thespian Mark Rylance, playing the King's ruthless counselor Thomas Cromwell. Claire Foy, Mark Gatiss, Charity Wakefield, Joanne Whalley and Jonathan Pryce, who was recently seen as a narcissistic asshole professor in Alex Ross Perry's "Listen Up Philip," head up the sprawling cast. Lewis also has Werner Herzog's "Queen of the Desert," starring Nicole Kidman as writer-archaeologist Gertrude Bell and Robert Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence, coming down the pike. "Wolf Hall" premieres across the pond on BBC Two this »
