Top Ten Most Anticipated Movies at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival As you read this I am just about to land in New York, before hopping on a plane to Nice as I make my way to the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, something I would not have been able to do had it not been for the generous contributions from the RopeofSilicon readers. It's almost impossible to tell you how much more energized I am to cover this year's festival due to the help from the readers and I have to say, it's quite a line-up I'll be reviewing for you this year, which brings us to the following list. If you haven't yet had a look at this year's line-up I have the complete list right here where you'll find the list of 20 films competing for this year's Palme d'Or, the films selected for the Un Certain Regard, those playing Out of Competition, »

Everybody will be talking about the Cannes Film Festival in the next couple of weeks, so for those of us who aren’t lucky enough to attend, we will be releasing clips and trailers for some of the movies screening this year.
This clip comes from Magic Magic, one of two collaborations Michael Cera made with director, Sebastián Silva, in Chile ( the other being Crystal Fairy). In Magic Magic, Juno Temple and Emily Browning play best friends whose trip to the Chilean countryside takes a turn for the worse when Temple’s Alicia suffers from insomnia. Chilean writer-director Silva has described the film as a disturbing psychological thriller that is meant to confuse the audience. Watch the clip below and read our review here. Enjoy!

I am flying at the moment and my GoGo Internet access isn't allowing me to watch the full clip featured below, but this is your first look at writer/director Sebastian Silva's Magic Magic, which played at Sundance earlier this year and is part of the Directors' Fortnight selection at this year's Cannes Film Festival. The thriller centers on Juno Temple (Killer Joe) as a young girl vacationing in Chile when she begins to unravel and her cousin and friends ignore her until it's too late. Michael Cera and Emily Browning co-star and the film has yet to acquire a distribution deal so the Cannes reactions will be watched closely. As for Silva, he directed The Maid back in 2009, which I haven't seen, but actually heard was quite good so this is certainly a film to keep an eye on and the first of two collaborations he worked on with Cera, »

The Cannes Film Festival is just around the corner and, as usual, clips from some of the prospective films are starting to make their way to the internet. One such film, which is premiering at the Directors’ Fortnight, is “Magic Magic.” Directed by Sebastian Silva (“The Maid”) and starring Michael Cera, Juno Temple, and Emily Browning, the film already made its North American debut at Sundance earlier this year. The clip’s about two minutes long and you can quickly get a sense that something’s not right with Juno Temple’s character. She plays Alicia, a young American girl who vacations in southern Chile with her cousin and three of her cousin’s friends. When her cousin leaves to take an exam, Alicia starts to unravel mentally. The other friends wind up ignoring her until it’s too late. The film is one of two collaborations Michael Cera made with the director, »

Hello fellow queer cinephiles! As we enter the long, hot days of summer, everyone wants to cool off in a theater and watch other people try to save the world. The summer tends to be a pretty testosterone-soaked season for movies, so I’m here to help you sort the films you want to be in the front row for from those you just use as an excuse to cuddle in the back.
Editor's note: * denotes a film that includes openly lesbian/bi actresses or lesbian/bi characters.
Venus and Serena
You’re there to see: Venus and Serena Williams, obviously.
In a nutshell: Who doesn’t want to know more about the two sisters who changed tennis forever? This one’s a must-see for any lesbian with a pair of athletic shoes.

Benedict Cumberbatch has done the geeky man everywhere a massive favour. On Graham Norton's show last week, if the differing distances travelled by adoring fans are anything to go by, he proved that a classy nerd, if dressed in the right gear and with the requisite amount of charisma, can instil more admiration than even your average Hollywood hunk, in this case, sidekick Chris Pine.
Cumberbatch has been sneaking around the A-list for a while, with his impressive turn as Stephen Hawking marking him out as long ago as 2004.

Indie film The Brass Teapot will be making an appearance in Austin on Thursday, May 23. Ramaa Mosley makes her feature directorial debut with the movie, basing it off of her 2007 short of the same name. Tim Macy scripted both the short and the feature.
It stars Michael Angarano (Sky High, Snow Angels), Juno Temple (Dirty Girl, Killer Joe) and Houston native Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls). it originally premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2012, and hasn't screened in Austin previously.
The Brass Teapot follows John (Angarano) and Alice (Temple), a young newlywed couple struggling to make ends meet. Feeling down on their luck, they happen upon an antiques store where Alice discovers a unique brass teapot. It appears to be just another junk-store find until the couple discovers that the teapot can give them all the money they desire -- in exchange for hurting themselves.

And when the veteran director first sent McConaughey the script for 'Killer Joe', the popular Texan hated it so much "he wanted to take a shower with a wire brush", according to Friedkin.
McConaughey's career is not all paper-light fare. He's made some impressive turns in 'A Time To Kill', 'The Lincoln Lawyer' and a striking turn 16 long years ago in 'Lone Star', but it's fair to say his fame and bank balance have, for quite a while, depended on the pop corn offerings of 'Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past', 'How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days', 'Failure To Launch' and similar. »

As blockbuster season is now underway, with the release of Iron Man 3 and Oblivion, it's traditional for us to look ahead to what's coming next summer, and to examine what treats are on the horizon. We've thus sliced out the big films, that we know of now, that are being released between April and August 2014 (Noah, due at the end of March, just misses the cut, as does early March Tom Cruise vehicle, All You Need Is Kill).
And while there's some familiarity to them, there are signs it might just be a more interesting summer than you may think....
Someone at Marvel has been watching the paintball episodes of Community too. That would explain »
Throughout April, we're counting down to the release of Marvel's Iron Man 3 with our picks for the Greatest Comic Book Movies of All Time; here's #7....

In The Brass Teapot, John (Michael Angarano) and Alice (Juno Temple) are a small town couple in their ‘20s, who are very much in love, but also very broke. Struggling to make ends meet while their friends enjoy the good life, a mysterious brass teapot in a roadside antique shop is seemingly the answer to all of their problems, when it starts spitting money out of its spout. But, as its demands for appeasement become darker and darker, its existence is a reminder that you should always be careful what you wish for. At the film’s press day, actress Juno Temple spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about making a grown-up fairytale, finding the balance between fantasy and realism, how important it is to just go there for emotional scenes, how difficult it was to get through the S&M scene without laughing, and how she likes to »
