Rihanna looked chic on Thursday as she sported Jennifer Fisher jewelry while leaving her hotel in New York City. The singer, who won four Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, was filming a Bud Weiser commercial during her time in New York. Fisher started her line, Jennifer Fisher Jewelry, after the birth of her first child, Shane, as she created a personalized dog tag charm for him with his name. She then wanted to create jewelry that signifies her own personal style, and can be worn all the time. The designer provides each client, including Rihanna, Naomi Watts, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Kidman, with individualized pieces. Since [ Read More ]

Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts in August: Osage County: Duel of the Oscar winners [See previous post: "Oscar 2014 Watch: Harvey Weinstein Cannes Film Festival Coming Attractions."] More Oscar 2014 bait: August: Osage County, directed by John Wells, and starring three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep (Kramer vs. Kramer, Sophie’s Choice, The Iron Lady) and Oscar winner Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich). Is it mere coincidence that Streep’s seventeenth Oscar nomination and third win was for her portrayal of British prime minister Margaret Thatcher in Phyllida Lloyd’s The Iron Lady — distributed by The Weinstein Company two years ago? Either way, Streep’s Oscar 2014 competition should be fierce, as Julia Roberts doesn’t seem to be wearing any makeup in the family drama. (Photo: Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts in August: Osage County.) Adapted by Tracy Letts from his own play, besides Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, August: Osage County also features Oscar nominee Juliette Lewis (Cape Fear), Dermot Mulroney, Star Trek Into Darkness‘ Benedict Cumberbatch, »

The Swiss watch brand Iwc Schaffhausen gathered stars in France for the Cannes Film Festival in the town of Antibes last night for its For the Love of Cinema party. The location was the luxurious seaside Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, which made for a picturesque night. Rooney Mara, Naomi Watts, and Karolína Kurková were among the famous women who hit the red carpet wearing timepieces from the brand, as did actor Christoph Waltz and race car driver Lewis Hamilton. The group was treated to a performance by Jamiroquai's Jay Kay and dinner inside the hotel's restaurant. Wearing a long-sleeved leather Balmain dress, Karolína discussed her bold choice and said, "It's not short!" She also revealed that her travels to Cannes were partially for work and partially for a family vacation with her husband, Archie Drury, and their son, Tobin. Naomi, meanwhile, wore a chic floral gown from Dolce & Gabbana. She told »

Worldview Entertainment has optioned the Marilyn Monroe biopic, Blonde, from writer-director Andrew Dominik (“Killing Them Softly,” “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”). The screenplay was adapted from the Joyce Carol Oates fictionalized biography of the late starlet. Wild Bunch is handling international sales on the project, while CAA, who arranged financing, will be packaging and representing the domestic rights.
“Andrew is an extremely talented writer and director and we are big fans of his work. ‘Blonde’ is a fantastic project and we are looking forward to seeing it come to life,” said Worldview CEO, Christopher Woodrow.
Dominik is represented by CAA.
Worldview’s 2013 slate includes the upcoming drama, “Song One,” starring Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway; Zach Braff’s drama, “Wish I was Here;” David Gordon Green’s drama, “Manglehorn,” starring Academy Award winner Al Pacino; and two studio co-financing deals: Academy Award nominee Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s comedy, »

Petra Nemcova was left 'shaking' while watching 'The Impossible'. The Czech supermodel suffered horrific injuries during the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami - which occurred on December 26 in Thailand - and her photographer fiancé Simon Atlee was killed. Petra has revealed it was incredibly difficult to relive the tragedy when it was retold on the big screen in the Oscar-nominated movie starring Naomi Watts. Speaking exclusively to Bang Showbiz at the F&F autumn/winter 2013 fashion show on Thursday (16.05.13), she said: 'It was hard to see because the film is [set] in the same hotel where I was and the same beach where I was, and the first half of the film was 90 per cent of »
Cannes buyers had plenty of screenings to choose from today but the hottest movie on the Croisette right now is Philomena — or at least the seven minutes that were shown to buyers this morning. This is the Stephen Frears-directed movie that stars Judi Dench and Steve Coogan and is the true story of an Irish woman who searches for the illegitimate son she gave up for adoption in the U.S. I am hearing that The Weinstein Company is in exclusive negotiations for the pic for U.S., Canada and Spain distribution rights, this after Focus Features stepped out of the bidding. The wild part: the bidding is based on a morning screening of partial footage to domestic buyers, and the action is currently at $6.5 million for a film said to cost around $18 million. That is a shockingly high number for a teaser reel, but everyone I spoke to »

Worldview Entertainment has signed on to finance and produce the drama, Song One, starring Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway. Kate Barker-Froyland will direct the film from her own screenplay.

Song One is the story of a young woman who strikes up a relationship with her ailing brother's favorite musician. Lotus will handle international sales and introduce the film to foreign buyers this week in Cannes while CAA, who arranged financing, will be representing the domestic rights. Here's what Worldview CEO Christopher Woodrow had to say about Anne Hathaway signing on to star.
"Anne is a brilliant actress and we think she is perfect for this project. »
Ah, Cannes got off to such a nice, sunny start. But the skies opened up this evening with rain and thunder, and buyers tomorrow morning are going to have to deal with the clash of two high priority acquisition titles that are screening at the same time. At 10 Am Thursday, Pathe will show seven minutes of footage from the Stephen Frears-directed Philomena, the film that stars Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. It’s the true story of an Irish woman who searches for the illegitimate son she gave up for adoption in the U.S. That screening will be held at Arcades 2. Starting at exactly the same moment, Embankment Films has a private screening of Diana, the Oliver Hirschbiegel-directed Diana, with Naomi Watts and Naveen Andrews starring in the chronicle of Princess Diana’s romance with a Pakistani surgeon just before her death. That one’s being held »

The 66th Locarno Film Festival will honor Werner Herzog with its Pardo d’Onore Swisscom award dedicated to contempo cinema masters, the first laurel announced by new artistic topper Carlo Chatrian. Herzog, he said, embodies his vision for the fest.
“Herzog is a very versatile director, whose work spans no-budget to big-budget, narrative cinema and documentaries, classic and cutting-edge cinema, but always with a distinctive identity,” said Chatrian. “Prizes for me are signals. The range present in Herzog’s work is what I would like to have in each of the festival’s sections.”
Herzog’s next project is “Queen of the Desert,” about explorer, writer and archeologist Gertrude Bell, starring Naomi Watts. Nick Raslan will produce through his Palmyra Films with Cassian Elwes and Michael Benaroya.
The Locarno tribute will include a mini-retro of Herzog’s work.
Chatrian took the reins from former Locarno topper Olivier Pere in November. »

Directed by Ariel Vromen
It’s kind of baffling that it’s taken this long to make a movie about Richard Kuklinski. Quiet family man is secretly a prolific murderer working as a hitman for the Jersey mob, completely unbeknownst to his family? That’s the kind of thing Hollywood loves, give him nymphomaniac wife and Lou Gehrig’s disease and you got a three picture series with Robert Downey Jr. and Naomi Watts, no problem. Maybe throw in Jerry Stiller as the comedically Jewish dad.
Instead, we’ve got The Iceman, a somewhat under-the-radar thriller starring Michael Shannon, Ray Liotta, Ray Liotta’s increasingly weird hairline, Winona Ryder, Chris Evans and directed by fairly unknown filmmaker Ariel Vromen.
The short version is that the film is a fairly average mob/thriller/drama affair that wisely focuses on the human »

It’s an annual cliche to proclaim the field of potential Best Actress nominations as “weak”. Unfortunately, it’s a cliche I happen to believe is true. Now before all you contrarians stout spouting off a list of under-appreciated, little-known performances from actresses in small independent films that I’m sure are all very lovely, let’s take stock in both what I am saying and in the facts themselves.
First of all, to accept the premise that the field of potential Best Actress nominees in recent years has been weak does not necessarily translate into a condemnation of our current crop of female thespians. In fact, personally, I blame the dearth of strong female roles on unimaginative writers, who can’t seem to concoct any purpose for female characters other than to serve as objects of sexual desire for their male counterparts. In terms of ability and talent, I »

Tank Girl first appeared in 1988 from creators Jamie Hewlett and Alan Martin and ended in 1996. It was a relatively popular comic that was made into a pretty crappy movie in 1995 starring Lori Petty as Tank Girl and a young Naomi Watts as Jet Girl. Though Martin resurrected the character in 2007 (Hewlett created the band Gorillaz with Blur’s Damon Albarn several years ago and currently has no plans to return as Tg’s artist) and has been writing numerous Tank Girl mini-series since then, it’s never lost that early 90s atmosphere.
Reading the first issue of Solid State Tank Girl, the latest Tg mini-series feels like a British sitcom from the early 90s like Red Dwarf. The humour is lame, Tank Girl herself feels dated (and really old – is she supposed to look like a middle-aged punk?), and the comic feels at least 15 years too late.

Robert Pattinson Mission: Blacklist movie: Filming in August? Mission: Blacklist is not the upcoming fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise starring Tom Cruise. For the time being, that’s concisely called Mission: Impossible 5. So, what’s Mission: Blacklist? Well, as every ardent Robert Pattinson fan will tell you, that’s a Pattinson movie project initially announced in early May 2012. Pattinson is attached to this Embankment Films-financed (or to-be-financed) production based on Eric Maddox and Davin Seay’s book Mission: Black List #1 - The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein - As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture. The title of Maddox and Seay’s book says it all. But just in case, here’s the brief Mission: Blacklist synopsis found on the Embankment Films website: Unlike other Interrogators fresh out of training, Eric Maddox (Robert Pattinson) has a brilliant and beautiful mind. He has »

Breathtaking is just the first word that comes to mind when trying to describe the first footage for director Alfonso Cuaron’s sci-fi thriller Gravity. The next word that comes to mind is finally. I mean, the journey that this film has gone through in order to make it to the big screen has been an extraordinary one.
If you recall, Robert Downey Jr. and Angelina Jolie were originally locked in for the lead roles. Of course, that didn’t pan out and a number of other actresses, including Natalie Portman, Naomi Watts and Marion Cotillard flirted with the part before Cuaron landed on Sandra Bullock. Then, George Clooney was called in to replace Downey Jr. Oh ya, the film was also delayed for about a year.
Being billed as a race-against-time thriller, Gravity will find Clooney and Bullock playing two astronauts struggling to survive on a space station after »

Evan Peters, John Cusack, Armando Riesco, Cloris Leachman and Shannon Woodward also star. Producers are Justin Nappi and Kevin Turen of Treehouse Pictures with Joy Gorman and Alex Goldstone of Anonymous Content and Manu Gargi.
Story, penned by Andy Cochran, centers on a young woman living with her parents who’s anxious to get her poetry career off the ground. She begrudgingly accepts a job at Adult World, the local sex shop.
Ronnie Schieb wrote in her review for Variety: “Coffey’s loose, casual style, tilting toward the performance-centric and improvisational — as with his 2005 debut, ‘Ellie Parker,’ starring genius-caliber actress Naomi Watts — cannot fully accommodate the presence »

Perhaps a recap of the journey we've been on with "Gravity" is in order. Hell, just getting a cast in order is a story itself with Robert Downey Jr. and Angelina Jolie attached at various points, and after the latter left, a frantic search geared up to find a replacement for take the lead with Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Marion Cotillard, Carey Mulligan, Sienna Miller, Abbie Cornish, Rebecca Hall, Olivia Wilde and Blake Lively all being rumored/considered/wishlisted before Sandra Bullock signed on, followed shortly by George Clooney. And then there's been the hype: chatter about an apparently heavily CGI, 20-minute opening sequence; Guillermo Del Toro calling it 5-years ahead of its time; a 3D shoot that left Clooney hoping he'd never bother with the format again; a product that Bullock said will be "profoundly silent and big and loud and I don't know how to explain »
