Although Alberto Barbera opted to slim down the Venice Film Festival lineup when he was appointed artistic director last year, the world’s oldest international sprocket opera appears to be setting a particularly lavish table for its 70th-anniversary edition running Aug. 28-Sept. 7. While the only confirmed title so far is Paul Schrader’s crowdfunded Los Angeles-set noir “The Canyons,” set to premiere out of competition (with Schrader serving as jury president of the fest’s Horizons sidebar), speculation has swirled around any number of potential entries.
It’s a truism of the festival circuit that films that don’t play Cannes in late spring wind up at Venice, Telluride and/or Toronto in the fall. Two big prestige releases that seem likely to follow that trajectory are “Gravity,” Alfonso Cuaron’s space odyssey starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, and “Twelve Years a Slave,” Steve McQueen’s period drama with Chiwetel Ejiofor, »

Check out a new poster for “Coco Before Chanel” director Anne Fontaine’s latest drama, “Adore” (formerly “Two Mothers”). The Australian-set film stars Naomi Watts and Robin Wright as best friends who begin having affairs with their respective sons. Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville play the hunky sons. That’s, uh, yeah, this is definitely going to end well for all involved. I see a big happy ending in everyone’s future. Probably. Of course, this only works cinematically because everyone in the film are basically perfect human beings, from the actresses playing the moms to the actors playing the sons. The brave move would have been to cast more “appropriate” looking moms and sons, but maybe realism is not the point here. In any case, “Adore” is based on a 2003 novella by Doris Lessing (who was 85-years old and a grandmother at the time, we’re told), and is »
With a title like Adore, this movie with Naomi Watts and Robin Wright might be about anything. But when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, it was known by another, much more provocative title, Two Mothers, that boldly announced its raison d’être. Watts and Wright play lifelong best friends who grow up and raise children near each other on an Australian beachfront paradise. Their hunky sons (Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville) are best friends too, spending their idle summer days on surfboards and working on their tans. They’re not your typical momma’s boys… well, until they »

Juan Antonio Bayona has made quite a name for himself with films like The Orphanage under his belt, and now the time has come to see what this incredibly capable filmmaker can do on the small screen, specifically for Showtime with "Penny Dreadful."
From the Press Release
Critically-acclaimed, award-winning Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible, The Orphanage) will helm the first two episodes in the eight-episode series order of the upcoming Showtime drama "Penny Dreadful" – created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Neal Street's Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call the Midwife).

Madrid — Two of Spain’s most powerful film companies, Spain’s Apaches Entertainment and Telecinco Cinema, the film arm of Mediaset Espana, won the 2013 Fapae-Rentrak Prize for Juan Antonio Bayona’s “The Impossible,” starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor.
Plaudit was awarded Tuesday at Spain’s annual Madrid de Cine screenings for Spanish films, its biggest national film showcase, to the Spanish film with largest international impact.
Bowing at the Toronto Festival, and sold to 72 territories by Summit Ent., “The Impossible” grossed Euros 131 million ($175 million) worldwide, including $56.1 million in Spain, an all-time home-turf record for a Spanish film.
That gross naturally reflects the large creative talents involved, from Bayona to Watts, Oscar-nommed for her true-life inspired performance.
But the Fapae-Rentrak award also prizes a business model that Spain needs all the more as its domestic market suffers the full-force of crisis and piracy, as a Tuesday press conference offered by »

Eleanor Parker today: Beautiful as ever in Scaramouche, Interrupted Melody Eleanor Parker, who turns 91 in ten days (June 26, 2013), can be seen at her most radiantly beautiful in several films Turner Classic Movies is showing this evening and tomorrow morning as part of their Star of the Month Eleanor Parker "tribute." Among them are the classic Scaramouche, the politically delicate Above and Beyond, and the biopic Interrupted Melody, which earned Parker her third and final Best Actress Academy Award nomination. (Photo: publicity shot of Eleanor Parker in Scaramouche.) The best of the lot is probably George Sidney’s balletic Scaramouche (1952), in which Eleanor Parker plays one of Stewart Granger’s love interests — the other one is Janet Leigh. A loose remake of Rex Ingram’s 1923 blockbuster, the George Sidney version features plenty of humor, romance, and adventure; vibrant colors (cinematography by Charles Rosher); an elaborately staged climactic swordfight; and tough dudes »

The first trailer for the highly-anticipated follow-up to ’300′ is here! Watch the official trailer for ’300: Rise Of An Empire’ in all its bloody glory.
Epic battles and killer abs — what’s not to love? The follow-up film to the mega-successful 300 is going to bring more shirtless fighting amidst hundreds of chiseled physiques. Game of Thrones‘ Lena Headey reprises her role as Queen Gorgo, now the widow to Gerard Butler’s Leonidas (sigh). The Greek general Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) engages in daring and gory battles with the mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro). The film looks like it’s going to be legendary and the eye candy doesn’t hurt either.

So far all we have seen is a one-minute trailer of film detailing Princess Diana's final years, but the awestruck tone is obvious
She is back. The ghost of Diana Spencer is back. A one-minute trailer has been released online, promoting a biopic directed by Olivier Hirschbiegel, about the last years of Princess Diana's life before the fatal 1997 car crash in Paris. It avowedly concentrates on her landmine removal charity work, her painful affair with surgeon Dr Hasnat Khan, and of course her persecution by the paparazzi. Naomi Watts stars as Diana, with her blonde hair fiercely styled and what looks like a nasal prosthesis in place.
It is impossible to tell what a film is really going to be like from a trailer, but here the awestruck tone is obvious. This account of Diana's final lonely years is unlikely to be subversive or controversial – although it is »

After several months of behind-the-scenes stills and rumours flying around about the film, a teaser trailer has finally been released for Diana. Starring Naomi Watts and Naveen Andrews, the plot focuses on Diana’s later years in the public eye; more specifically, her involvement with surgeon Dr. Hasnat Kahn. Described as the ‘People’s Princess’, we’re wondering how the palace will take this.
I don’t think Watts looks much like our protagonist but, to be fair, she has said that she’s ‘hoping to catch the essence of her‘. Hopefully the film will be as interesting and intense as the teaser.
Diana, directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (Also known for the truly excellent Five Minutes Of Heaven), will be released in UK cinemas from 20th September 2013.

The last few months of 2013 are shaping up for a royal showdown. In one corner, there's Nicole Kidman portraying the late actress-turned-princess of Monaco Grace Kelly in the Weinstein Company's Grace of Monaco. In the other, there's Naomi Watts as a stunning doppelganger of the late Princess Diana in the aptly titled Diana. There's been buzz about this film for quite some time and now we finally get our first look at Watts in a role that could earn her another trip through the awards circuit. Take a look: There's no U.S. release date for the film yet, though several European and South American countries have secured fall screening dates. The film will bow in the U.K. on September 20. By then domestic distributor Entertainment One should have a date...

Catch up with the last seven days in the world of film
It's big. Very big. It could be the biggest ever. Man of Steel is here, the latest Superman film, directed by Zack Snyder and with Christopher Nolan's sticky fingerprints all over it. The film itself burst fully formed into the media at 4am on Tuesday morning, when the worldwide media embargo was lifted. Our first look review handed it three big stars, an assessment repeated when the capo, Peter Bradshaw, gave his verdict.
Critics across the planet weighed in, with the word being on the positive side of mixed. That of course cut no ice with the big cheeses at Warner Bros, who have already commissioned a sequel; nor with our man in the stalls, Joe Queenan, who took the exact opposite view to WB. Give the superheroes a rest, was his basic message. »
