Williams will play the wife of an unfaithful...

Kristen Stewart's latest role? A bag lady. A very fancy bag lady, that is. The Twilight star continues to serve as Karl Lagerfeld's muse in Chanel's Spring 2015 handbag campaign "3 Girls 3 Bags." The other two ladies featured in the project are Johnny Depp's ex Vanessa Paradis and British model Alice Della. In the minimalistic black and white image—which was shot by Lagerfeld—K.Stew can be seen rocking a silk suit and white tee with a classic quilted Chanel purse. This particular bag, an 11.12 style, is made of lambskin and features herringbone pattern. It's been well over a year since the 24-year-old first partnered with Chanel and the actress shows no signs of »

I want to like Kelly Reichardt more than I do. She has a firm grasp over the tone and look of her films, but they just never grab me like I think they should. I still need to see her latest film, Night Moves, and maybe that one will change my mind. Regardless if I like her films or not, I am still interested in what she makes, which brings me to the subject of this article. Kristen Stewart has signed up to join Reichardt's next film alongside Michelle Williams and Laura Dern. This may not excite some people, as there is a fairly strong anti-Kristen Stewart group out there, but I am on the side of really liking her. People just need to leave Twilight behind forever in their memories and look to her other stuff. Her performances in things like Adventureland, On the Road, and Still Alice »

Night Moves director Kelly Reichardt does not yet have a title for her new drama. But she has still been building an impressive cast of previous collaborators and new faces, with Michelle Williams, Jared Harris, Laura Dern, James Le Gros and Sara Rodier all aboard. Now Kristen Stewart will join them in the eventual film.For this one, Reichardt is headed to the wide-open plains of Montana, and the small towns that dot the expansive countryside. Adapting the short stories of Maile Meloy, the writer-director plans a series of vignettes that involve people from one particular town.Stewart will be Beth, a young lawyer who has arrived from Idaho. Taking a teaching job that means a commute several hours from her house, she confronts her nerves about switching careers and befriends a woman named Jamie who is auditing her class.There are no details yet on what Williams, Dern, Harris »
We open today's round of news and views with reviews of three newish books, one telling the wild story of North Korea's Kim Jong-Il as a kidnapping producer, another measuring the impact on Hollywood of the death of William Desmond Taylor in 1922, plus a collection of criticism by Gregory J. Markopoulos. Also: Reassessing David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars, a list of under-appreciated films by John Ford, an interview with Wim Wenders, a Věra Chytilová primer—and Kristen Stewart has joined Michelle Williams and Laura Dern in Kelly Reichardt’s forthcoming untitled drama. » - David Hudson »
'Still Alice' and 'Maps to the Stars' box office: Julianne Moore Oscar helps only one movie (photo: Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore in 'Still Alice') (See previous post: "'The Lazarus Effect' Box Office: Olivia Wilde Horror Movie Arrives Comatose.") The Oscars do matter. As mentioned in the previous post, Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman was up an estimated 125 percent this weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, following its four Academy Award wins – including Best Picture. Also up a hefty 24 percent – after adding 553 locations – is Sony Pictures Classics' Still Alice, which earned Julianne Moore the year's Best Actress Oscar for her performance as a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. True, an Oscar win – or key nominations – may not create mammoth blockbusters like Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, or Clint Eastwood's American Sniper. For that, »

'The Lazarus Effect' box office: Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass horror movie arrives comatose (photo: Olivia Wilde in 'The Lazarus Effect') (See previous post: "'Focus': Will Smith Has One of Worst Opening Weekends of His Career.") Despite recent news that human head transplants are a mere two years away, the Mark Duplass-Olivia Wilde horror movie The Lazarus Effect – about bringing the dead back to life (as if world overpopulation weren't already a problem) – grossed $10.6 million from 2,666 U.S. and Canada venues on opening weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. The Relativity Studios-distributed low-budget horror flick had earned an estimated $3.8 million on opening-day Friday, including $350,000 from Thursday night screenings. Last week, box-office prognosticators had been expecting an opening between $12-$14 million. That was adjusted downward to $10 million or whereabouts after the film's disappointing Friday debut. Some, in fact, »

We're only three months into 2015 but already it feels like blockbuster season is here. This month sees the next instalment in The Divergent Series, a new offering from Neill Blomkamp and Disney reinventing an old classic in live-action. Add these to an Oscar winning acting showcase and the latest from Studio Ghibli and March is looking golden.
Release diary: What movies are coming out in 2015?
Digital Spy rounds up the five films you have to see this March...
Release date: March 6
Why you should see it: All the talk surrounding Neill Blomkamp at the moment is surrounding his proposed Alien sequel, perhaps overshadowing the fact he actually has a new film coming out. Following on from District 9 and Elysium, the filmmaker's third feature Chappie centres on a police robot who's rebooted and develops a consciousness. Look out for a mulleted Hugh Jackman, Die Antwoord playing themselves and startlingly »
'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after »

Did you know that Kristen Stewart made history a week ago? The 24-year-old actress became the first American woman to win a prestigious Cesar Award, France's own version of the Academy Award. She also won it for an English-speaking role. Think about that for a second. This honor hasn't been bestowed upon Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams, Sigourney Weaver, Natalie Portman, Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon or any other globally acclaimed American actress over the past 30 years. No, it was Kristen Stewart who broke the French's reticence to reward anyone but their own. Stewart, an actress who continues to (mostly) put studio work behind her following a string of acclaimed performance in indie films over the past year. That career path continues with her next endeavor, the "Untitled Kelly Reichardt Project," In case the name is unfamiliar to you, Reichardt is an acclaimed director whose movies include festival favorites "Night Moves," "Meek's Cutoff" and "Wendy and Lucy. »

Looks like most of those rumors turned out to be true. The director of modern minimalist classics like “Wendy & Lucy,” “Old Joy,” “Meek’s Cutoff,” and “Night Moves” — that latter film we just placed on our 50 Best Films Of The Decade So Far list — a new Kelly Reichardt film is always cause for celebration. And so we greatly anticipate her upcoming project, an untitled, vignette-driven drama set in small town Montana. And the already-terrific cast just got even better. Kristen Stewart, coming off two great performances in “Clouds of Sils Maria” and “Camp X-Ray,” has joined the film. According to Deadline, she will portray a lawyer from Boise, Idaho who takes a teaching job several hours from her house. Stewart’s character develops a friendship with a local woman who’s auditing her class. Michelle Williams “stars” (or just might be the biggest name in the cast), and the cast also includes Laura Dern, »

After the Twilight saga ended, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson seemed headed on similar, yet different paths. While Pattinson went on to somewhat successfully follow an indie path, hitching star on David Cronenberg's wagon numerous times since the series' final entry; Stewart seemed to have diminished returns on her indie quest. With the first Cesar handed to an American actress on her mantle, Stewart's luck looks to have changed for the better... and her next project could continue the streak, as she's joined Kelly Reichardt's latest project. Deadline announced that Kristen Stewart has joined the Night Moves director's latest drama, which is untitled at the moment, but has some award nominees in its canon. Stewart will be co-starring with Michelle Williams and Laura Dern in this project about, "a series of vignettes that revolve around the lives of people in small-town Montana." Her segment would be about a »

Marc Allégret: From André Gide lover to Simone Simon mentor (photo: Marc Allégret) (See previous post: "Simone Simon Remembered: Sex Kitten and Femme Fatale.") Simone Simon became a film star following the international critical and financial success of the 1934 romantic drama Lac aux Dames, directed by her self-appointed mentor – and alleged lover – Marc Allégret. The son of an evangelical missionary, Marc Allégret (born on December 22, 1900, in Basel, Switzerland) was to have become a lawyer. At age 16, his life took a different path as a result of his romantic involvement – and elopement to London – with his mentor and later "adoptive uncle" André Gide (1947 Nobel Prize winner in Literature), more than 30 years his senior and married to Madeleine Rondeaux for more than two decades. In various forms – including a threesome with painter Théo Van Rysselberghe's daughter Elisabeth – the Allégret-Gide relationship remained steady until the late '20s and their trip to »

The horror lover inside of me wants to defend The Lazarus Effect against other mainstream failures, but the critic in me can’t let that happen. It’s a mess, but not on the catastrophic level of so many other generically churned-out teenage slashers (like Ouija or The Pyramid).
Director David Gelb strives to fashion together something more, something that blends the conflicting ideologies of religion and science in a heavyweight debate, but scribes Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater didn’t get that memo. The talents of Gelb are outweighed by the overbearing redundancy of Dawson and Slater’s nostalgically horrendous script, as the fires of Horror Film Hell engulf yet another misguided victim. Blumhouse is so close to something special with The Lazarus Effect, but unfortunately, it’s still oh-so-far from heavenly.
