This is a very a curious case of matching couture. Did both Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton stay at the same Moroccan B&B, fall in love with the hotel room carpet and steal some swatches for their dress maker? Or is this a Sound of Music style scenario? Something happened to both their real red carpet looks and a stylish fräulein fixed them up a curtain-created look? Shockingly, both looks were created by the iconic house of Valentino, which either means Mr. Valentino also stayed at that B&B or he has a thrifty nun working in his shop. Either way, this is a "lesser of two evils" battle in our book. The thick fabric on both these styles doesn't do much for the Academy Award winner or the Grand »
Austin - "I dance as much as I can," said Tilda Swinton during our interview. This was fresh off of Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive" playing at SXSW, one of two films in which the actress appears at the festival. The other is "Grand Budapest Hotel," directed by Wes Anderson, which Swinto describes as "enchanting," a flick you'd give up a Saturday to get snuggly and watch from your couch. "Enchanting" is a good word to describe the English actress, who described the varied ways she enjoys the roles she plays on film and in life. For "Only Lovers," she played opposite of Tom Hiddleston -- "play" being the operative. "We were friends of friends, inclined to like each other from the start, and we did," Swinton said of Hiddleston, whose moody musician character Adam is a her husband and true love in the vampire tale. Aside from "digging each other, »

Director Jim Jarmusch‘s (Broken Flowers, Dead Man) films have never been for everyone. They’re experimental in a variety of ways, but, for good or bad, they are always Jim Jarmusch films. However, sometimes too much Jarmuschiness can agitate even his own fans. His last film, The Limits of Control, never shied away from testing its audience’s patience in part because its awareness of itself was far too often distancing. That’s not the case with his latest film, Only Lovers Left Alive, a movie that maintains its focus, emotional investment, and laughs from start to finish. Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton) have been lovers for hundreds of years. They’re true romantics, but they are on opposite sides of the world. Eve is living in Tangier, while Adam is in the rotting city of Detroit. Time is relative when you’re immortal, but still, it’s not easy for them. The »

Tilda Swinton's no shrinking violet, and thank goodness for that. Last July, Swinton released a photo of herself holding a rainbow flag in front of the Kremlin, with the official statement, "In solidarity. From Russia with love." The gesture was in response to the growing anti-lgbtq sentiments in Russia, which have since only gotten worse since then.
While Swinton was in Austin promoting her fantastic new film, "Only Lovers Left Alive," Swinton got in one delicious dig at Russian President Putin during an interview with The Daily Beast. "Well, Russia has the gayest president ever. No, that's an offensive thing to say -- not to him, but to the gay community," she quipped, in response to a comment about the Sochi Olympics.

He's been called a master of hip cinematic heartbreak who deals in worlds as shiny and perfect as a Christmas ornament — or, put more charitably, a virtuoso at making pathos both wrenching and witty in a idiosyncratic, individual style. You always know when you watching a Wes Anderson film; the symmetrical compositions and deep-cut soundtracks are a dead giveaway. His latest movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, has members of his repertory-players cast (including Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson) zipping through a never-quite-was 20th-century Europe, one »
Ok, Jim Jarmusch. Just take it. Take all our blood. Now. Few things seem as amazing as being undead creatures of the night and hanging out with Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton and Mia Wasikowska. The director’s latest film, Only Lovers Left Alive, is still making the festival rounds before its April 11 theatrical premiere. Centuries-old vampires Adam and Eve (Hiddleston and Swinton) reunite in a mutual thirst — for each other and pure blood untainted by the zombies (humans). The arrival of Eve’s free-spirited sister, Ava (Wasikowska), shakes things up for Adam, a reclusive, pessimistic musician, and his pragmatic partner, threatening their survival. Jarmusch’s sardonic sense of humor and the utterly cool Hiddleston and Swinton — here grungy...

"Did you just throw my cat out the window?" After breaking limited release box office records with a debut on just four screens this past weekend, The Grand Budapest Hotel is already a success for director Wes Anderson. But the film is still poised to expand to more screens in the coming weeks, so Fox Searchlight has decided to release one more last minute trailer, but this time with some red band edge. It's pretty tame, with only a few f-bombs and a distant shot of one of Ralph Fiennes geriatric lovers (maybe Tilda Swinton) performing fellatio, but it makes me more anxious to see the flick. Watch the red band trailer! Here's the red band trailer for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel from Yahoo: The Grand Budapest Hotel is written and directed by Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore) and tells of a legendary »

"Well how's that supposed to make me feelc" asks Ralph Fiennes hilariously, playing Gustave H, the concierge of the titular Grand Budapest Hotel in the fictional Eastern European country Zubrowska. He asks the question after being berated by the son (Adriend Brody) of the late Madame D. (Tilda Swinton) whose passing may have just landed Gustave one of the family's prized paintings, "Boy with Apple". But the painting is only a jumping off point for The Grand Budapest Hotel, a story told in flashback, taking place between the two wars, as Gustave finds himself in prison, out of prison and knee deep in a murder mystery we'd expect from the likes of Agatha Christie, only this time told through the kaleidoscope lens of writer/director Wes Anderson. The film, in fact, is told through two flashbacks, the first of which begins with a writer played by Jude Law in his »

For a very long time it seemed like vampires were the zenith of cool, from Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire to Wesley Snipes in Blade. Then the Twilight saga came along and vampires took something of a hit to their image. We’re not saying it was the sparkling, but the sparkling didn’t help.
Luckily, indie director Jim Jarmusch is on hand to repair vampires’ cool image with Only Lovers Left Alive, a romantic horror film about two members of the sharp-toothed undead, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have a love affair that dates back centuries. They reunite after a period of estrangement, only to have their lives disrupted by the appearance of Eve’s wild younger sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska).

You have probably already heard about Only Lovers Left Alive, although it’s far easier to remember it as “the Tom Hiddleston/Tilda Swinton vampire movie.” It has been a long time in coming to the American market, slowly making the rounds of the festival circuit since it premiered at Cannes last year. Now, the film is finally getting a wide U.S. release, promoted by yet another dreamy, ethereal trailer.
Hiddleston and Swinton feature as centuries-old vampire lovers named Adam and Eve, now evolved to a state where they do not need to feast upon humans to acquire sustenance. Instead they seem to spend their time playing music, discussing literature, and enjoying each other’s company. A wrench may be thrown into the works, however, by the appearance of Adam’s sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska), a younger and obviously wilder creature whom Adam does not seem to be overly fond of. »

Going up against the big boys are we? Indie sci-fi The Signal, which screened at The Sundance Film Festival, follows a group of three friends who take a detour during a journey only for everything to suddenly go dark. The film has received many positive reviews and has set a limited release for 13th June, with further expansions in the weeks following that date. The Signal stars Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp and Laurence Fishburne.
Meanwhile, Bong Joon Ho’s much awaited Snowpiercer, which like a typical train will be running nearly a year late, has finally set a North American release date. It should be hitting cinemas on 27th June as a limited release with a possible, but as yet unconfirmed, same day VOD release. The film has been delayed for a long time and has already been released in some parts of Europe and Asia. Snowpiercer sees »

True to its name, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” has made a spectacular showing in the specialty box office, breaking the record for the highest-grossing limited live action debut of all time.
With a $800,000 weekend bow, Wes Anderson’s eighth feature film has stolen the art-house crown from “The Master.” The dramedy, which checked into only four theaters in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, averaged more than $200,000 per theater, overtaking the Paul Thomas Anderson-directed drama, which averaged $147,000. This marks the best non-event opening gross ever for a New York or Los Angeles premiere and the auteur’s most successful debut to date.
“Grand Budapest” reeled in $260,000 on Friday ($65,000 per theater average) and an additional $40,000 in late night showings on Thursday.
“The Master” previously beat the record set by Anderson’s last film, 2012′s “Moonrise Kingdom.” With help from a Memorial Day weekend berth, that movie averaged a record-setting $131,000 in four theaters. »

Inspired by Mark Twain’s Extracts from Adam’s Diary, Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive beautifully explores love and living after immortality siphoned away any semblance of life. Beautifully shot and wonderfully performed, the film eschews the more bombastic side of vampiric lore for a subtle approach exploring immortality and existence.
After having mingled with the likes of Lord Byron and Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), Adam (Tom Hiddleston), is a centuries old vampire who has retreated from society to a home in the carcass of Detroit, living among his analogue music equipment. He admonishes humans as zombies and grudgingly hates them for worshipping inauthenticity over true intellect or talent. Adam is bitter and fatigued. Whether it is his Tesla-engineered electricity system or his penchant for 1905 Gibsons, Adam has not lived in the present for the last few centuries. »

If there's anything more mesmerizing than watching a Tilda Swinton performance, it's seeing the actress and film festival runner speak live in person. SXSW attendees in Austin got to experience Swinton in all her alluring glory yesterday during an hour-long talk, moderated by the Film Society of Lincoln Center's newly appointed Deputy Director (and Indiewire co-founder), Eugene Hernandez. The Q&A covered the gamut, from how Swinton found her calling as an artist after meeting a painter her father invited over, to why she signed on to play a vampire in Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive," which is playing at the festival. But the unquestionable highlight from the talk came when Hernandez asked Swinton -- who said that she makes every film as if it were her last -- what cinema means to her as an art form. Her answer is below: My guides in this inquiry are »

After a slow start to the 2014 specialty box office, leave it to Wes Anderson to turn things around in a grand fashion. His "Grand Budapest Hotel" opened in 4 theaters yesterday via Fox Searchlight this weekend, breaking the live action average record of another Anderson in the process (Paul Thomas, if you couldn't guess). "Grand Budapest" -- which stars Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody and Jude Law, among many others -- was estimated to gross a stunning $800,000, which made for a $200,000 per-theater-average. That was the first live action specialty release to ever average $200,000 -- more than enough to top the $147,262 that "The Master" averaged in 2012. "The Master," oddly enough, beat the record set by Wes Anderson's previous film "Moonrise Kingdom." A few months earlier, that film averaged $130,749 from 4 theaters. Which means Wes now has 2 of the top 3 limited live action debuts of all time. "We »
