Rob Lowe to Play Murder Victim in Lifetime Movie

14 July 2014 9:01 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Rob Lowe —  or at very least, Rob Lowe's corpse! —  is heading to Lifetime. Lowe will star in the network's new ripped-from-the-headlines film Beautiful and Twisted as Ben Novack Jr., the heir to Miami's luxury Fontainebleau hotel fortune who was found brutally murdered. Paz Vega will play his wife, Narcy, a prime suspect in his murder, while Candice Bergen plays his mom. Presumably he isn't murdered right away and/or the film relies heavily on flashbacks/ghosts, or else Lowe is just seriously trying to cut down on his work schedule these days. »

Taormina Film Festival: Where Cinema Takes a Backseat to Glamour

24 June 2014 3:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you should have the good fortune to visit Sicily in June, the last thing you want to do is sit inside and watch movies. That’s just as well for the Taormina Film Festival, since half the movies are shown outdoors in the Teatro Antico, and the other half no one wants to see anyway.

Taormina is the first film festival I’ve attended where film seems to be the least important thing going on. Three years ago, the event was on the brink of bankruptcy when Tiziana Rocca took the reins and rescued it. One thing I’ve learned about Southern Italy this week: When life gives them lemons, they make limoncello.

A publicity maven from Rome, Rocca instinctively understood that glamour would be the way to bring attention back to Taormina. And so, for eight nights in the middle of June, the city becomes the backdrop for starry awards shows, »

Taormina Film Festival: Gathering Place of Legends, Stars and Industry Players

13 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As part of the Roman Empire, Taormina was renowned for its fine wine and high-quality marble. Today the picturesque Sicilian town, with its sweeping view over the Strait of Messina, is best known for the film festival that bears its name — Italy’s oldest — that over the years has attracted such cinema legends as Marcello Mastroianni, Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant and John Huston.

This month the Taormina Film Festival celebrates its 60th anni by honoring the work of women in the movies, and female movie stars will play a prominent role in the festivities. The fest’s subtitle for 2014 is “60 years of women and their impact.”

“Women have contributed a lot to the movie business, and sometimes they are not as appreciated as men, and festivals forget to celebrate them,” says Tiziana Rocca, Taormina fest’s general manager.

Among the actresses who will be accepting honors at Taormina: Claudia Cardinale, »

Grace of Monaco review: "What was Nicole Kidman thinking?"

2 June 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Olivier Dahan; Screenwriter: Arash Amel; Starring: Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth, Paz Vega, Milo Ventimiglia, Parker Posey, Derek Jacobi, Frank Langella; Running time: 103 mins; Certificate: PG

There are countless missed opportunities in Grace of Monaco, a sponsorship deal with Ferrero Rocher being chief among them. Like the choccies doled out by that cheapnik ambassador, this portrait of Grace Kelly 'the royal years' aspires to refinement and class when, in reality, it's just an afternoon sugar buzz for bored housewives. No wonder the Cannes glitterati turned up their noses, but you don't have to be a connoisseur to know this is a pile of Nutella.

What was Nicole Kidman thinking? For one thing she is two decades too old to be playing Grace Kelly from the late '50s to early '60s (the star was only 26 when she went from Hollywood's High Society to the House of Grimaldi). Kidman does »

'The Avengers'' Jeremy Renner plays a different kind of hero in trailer for ‘Kill the Messenger’

30 May 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Jeremy Renner has battled everything from aliens to witches in his films, but in his next project, "Kill the Messenger," he tackles something much more sinister: the connection between the U.S. government and the crack epidemic of the 1980s. "The Avengers" star plays San Jose Mercury News reporter Gary Webb, who wrote a series of articles that brought to light certain connections between the Reagan administration and the Contras in Nicaragua, who were supposedly working together to funnel drugs into the United States. "Dexter" and "Homeland" director Michael Cuesta helmed the film, which also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Paz Vega, Robert Partrick, Ray Liotta, Oliver Platt, Barry Pepper and Andy Garcia. "Kill the Messenger" opens Oct. 10. »

Jeremy Renner Uncovers The Truth In First Kill The Messenger Trailer

30 May 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ladies and gentlemen, I do believe that we’ve just gotten our first look at one of this fall’s biggest awards contenders. Kill The Messenger, from director Michael Cuesta (Showtime’s Homeland and Dexter), first piqued our interest back in July of 2013 when Michael Sheen, Bary Pepper, Tim Blake Nelson and Andy Garcia joined the cast, and we started to realize just how talented an ensemble Cuesta was working with. Now, a first trailer for the Jeremy Renner-led film has hit the web, and it’s definitely a must-see.

Renner stars as Gary Webb, an American journalist who, in 1996, uncovered that the CIA had ties to a major crack cocaine smuggling operation in California and was using the profits from that operation to funnel arms to rebel fighters in Nicaragua. Webb’s investigation puts him and his family at risk, but he continues to dig, determined to bring »

Kill The Messenger Trailer – Jeremy Renner Pushes Back As Gary Webb

29 May 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Kill the Messenger tells the story of Gary Webb, the journalist who wouldn’t stop digging into the cocaine trade, even when threatened by drug dealers and the CIA. It’s a story that has as much intrigue as you could want, but will audiences be interested?

If the trailer is any true judge of things, it looks like this one has a lot to offer, and it certainly has a cast that ought to be able to deliver.

It perhaps oversells (but, it’s not a movie without some steamy moments, right?), which makes you wonder exactly how accurate the portrayal is that we’re getting, but Renner looks like he’ll be able to sell the story, and if the government running the drug trade doesn’t pique your interest, what will?

Take a look below, and don’t let this one fly under your radar.

It’s kind of amazing more movies aren’t called “Kill the Messenger.” Still, what is most movies’ loss is this movie’s gain. Based on a true story, Kill the Messenger stars Jeremy Renner as Gary Webb, a journalist who uncovered the CIA’s involvement in the smuggling of cocaine into the U.S. The rest is just classic mess-with-the-bull-you-get-the-horns stuff.
