Toronto unveiled their first wave of titles on Tuesday, and today it's Venice's turn, with the festival revealing what they'll be unspooling on the Lido. And as usual, it's an auteur heavy selection, but even we weren't expecting American horror legend Joe Dante to be given a slot. But it's a pleasant surprise. Indeed, his upcoming "Burying The Ex" has nabbed an Out Of Competition slot. The horror comedy stars Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, Alexandra Daddario and Oliver Cooper, and it sounds like it'll be something a bit off the beaten path for those in Venice. Here's the official synopsis: Burying The Ex is an outrageous horror-comedy in which a young man's romance with his dream girl takes an unexpected turn when his dead ex-girlfriend rises from the grave... and thinks they are still dating! Below you'll find new photos, and a 5-minute behind-the-scenes featurette for Canal+ with interviews with Dante, »

"Once a cheater, always a cheater!" - Rachel Karen Green, September 25, 1997
We might live in the age of the TV anti-hero - with theft, deception and even murder often considered par for the course for our protagonists - but one sin that remains simply beyond the pale on television is cheating.
So while Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) was hit hard when his beloved Shae (Sibel Kekilli) betrayed him at his trial, the revelation that she'd been sleeping with his father Tywin (Charles Dance) - the lusty lion - was on a whole other level.
With her worst secret exposed in last night's Game of Thrones season four finale, Shae joins the dubious ranks »
Even though the movie is set in California, nearly all of it is being shot in Australia. Johnson portrays a copter pilot who rescues his daughter in San Francisco, where less than a week of shooting is taking place — mostly “plate” shots to establish location.
Brad Peyton is directing from a script by “The Conjuring” scribes Carey and Chad Hayes, with a previous draft written by Carlton Cuse. Beau Flynn is producing through his FlynnPictureCo. along with Village Roadshow.

It’s been shooting in Australia for weeks already, but director Brad Peyton and the team behind earthquake action adventure San Andreas have only now seen fit to announce that Kylie Minogue is joining the film.San Andreas already features Dwayne Johnson as a special-ops fire rescue operative who must team up with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) to make the dangerous trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco to rescue their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) when a massive earthquake rocks California.Minogue, who has pulled back from her acting career in recent years to focus on music (and to be a judge on the UK version of The Voice), still makes time for the occasional movie, and was last seen on the big screen in the barnstormingly good, utterly baffling Holy Motors. Details about her role in San Andreas have yet to be released, but we do know she’s joining »
Australian pop star and actress Kylie Minogue has joined the cast of the 3D disaster adventure San Andreas, which is currently shooting on the Gold Coast of Australia, the actress' home country. The actress/singer is also expected to contribute to the soundtrack.
While Kylie Minogue's character is being kept under wraps, she joins a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Colton Haynes and Art Parkinson. The story centers on a Los Angeles special ops firefighter (Dwayne Johnson) who travels to San Francisco with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) to rescue their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) after a massive earthquake strikes.
Brad Peyton is directing from a script that was originally written by Jeremy Passmore and Andre Fabrizio, which was reworked by Allan Loeb, Carlton Cuse, Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes. Warner Bros. has issued a June 5, 2015 release date.
Though Kylie Minogue is best known for her singing career, having won a Grammy Award, released 12 albums and served as a judge on the U.K. version of The Voice, she actually got her start as an actress on the soap opera Neighbors. Since then, she’s dabbled in acting a few times, appearing on an episode of Doctor Who and in films like Moulin Rouge!, Jack & Diane and Holy Motors. Now, she’s signed on for another supporting role, in the Dwayne Johnson-led earthquake thriller San Andreas.
Minogue’s role is being kept under wraps for the time being, but the film stars Johnson as a special ops firefighter who, along with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino), makes the perilous trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco in search of their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) after the ‘Big One’ hits and utterly decimates California. Johnson’s protagonist faces threats not only from Mother Nature, »

The National Commission of Audit.s proposal to cease the $20 million international film incentives program is a nonsense.
An initiative of the former Labor Government, the $20 million was a one-off payment to attract offshore production and was never going to be perpetuated by the current Government.
Besides, the money has been spent, or at least committed, to three films. Angelina Jolie.s drama Unbroken is in post-production and will be released by Universal in the Us on December 25 and in Australia on January 8.
The Moon and the Sun, a fantasy adventure starring Pierce Brosnan, William Hurt, Fan Bing Bing and Benjamin Walker, is shooting in Melbourne after locationing in France, directed by Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer, Bratz, Raise Your Voice) .

With The Day After Tomorrow director Roland Emmerich now pursuing (slightly) more serious fare than his usual effects-driven blockbusters, there has been a certain deficiency of big-budget disaster thrillers at the box office lately. And unless you count the found-footage film Into the Storm, this summer won’t offer much for fans of the subgenre. The summer of 2015, however, is a different story. In June of next year, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will star in an epic disaster thriller titled San Andreas, which explores what happens when a colossal, long-dreaded earthquake devastates the West Coast.
In addition to offering plenty of jaw-dropping sequences of destruction and explosive action scenes, San Andreas may also offer some moments of genuine drama, if its strong cast is any indication. Today, Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four) signed on for the film, joining Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Colton Haynes, Art Parkinson, Archie Panjabi, Morgan Griffin and Todd Williams. »

Once touted as shoo-in for stardom, or at least dwarfstardom, Ioan Gruffudd (“Yo-an Griff-ith”) hasn’t been a major big screen presence in recent years, focusing his energies instead on the small screen. The one-time Mr. Fantastic - or ‘Bendy Stretcherooney’ as he’s known in these parts – is back in action, however, in ‘70s-style disaster flick San Andreas.According to Deadline, Gruffudd will be joining Dwayne Johnson and Carla Gugino in the Brad Peyton-directed project. The movie will, as the title implies, see a major quake strike California. In the absence of Superman, it falls to Johnson’s ex-Special Ops firefighter to deal with the aftermath and track down his ex-wife (Gugino) and daughter (Alexandra Daddario). No, we have no idea what a Special Ops firefighter is either, but if you’re a ninja with a chip fire on your hands, you could probably do a lot worse. »

Fire and Rescue pilot who journeys to Northern California to rescue his daughter after a massive earthquake strikes. Take a look at this photo, along with the actor's message to his Facebook fans.
"The boys are back in town... Strong 1st day of shooting, San Andreas (biggest earthquake of all time). On the sides are two of the best producers in Hollywood, Beau Flynn and Hiram Garcia. Next to me, my trusted, brilliant and handsome as a sumbitch director, BradBrad "Fear The Beard" Peyton. Spielberg inspires us all. »
There you are, watching "True Detective" when a pair of handcuffs comes out, as you turn in horror and realize your parents are sitting next to you. The room becomes deathly, uncomfortably silent as Woody Harrelson and Alexandra Daddario indulge in their various kinks, while you pray for the scene to end. Yes, watching sex scenes with your parents is hugely awkward, and odds are if you're watching any of the hit HBO shows—"Game Of Thrones" and "Girls" particularly—the risk of nudity, groaning and lots of skin runs pretty high. But the cable network has a solution for you. They've dropped a pretty amusing series of ads about the virtues of using their HBO Go service—no more awkward sex scene encounters with parents. Granted, this is provided the service works and doesn't crash during season premieres/finales as it has a couple of times this year, but that aside, »
