We told you all the ways Courtney Love is steadily making a comeback, which should fill you with endorphins. I'm not sure her appearance in "Montage of Heck" will thrill fans, but she's such a dynamic, eye-rolling force whose insight is still provocative. We can always use more Courtney. Plus, "Live Through This" is better than "Nevermind." Sorry. As for other comebacks we need right now, here are ones I'm constantly thinking about: Missy Elliott (of course; she's on a new Ciara track and sounds fantastic, by the way), Dana Carvey, Cheri Oteri, Alanis Morissette, Miranda Richardson, Tracy Chapman (She sounded fantastic performing "Stand By Me" on Letterman), Lesley Ann Warren, and Winona Ryder. Fingers crossed for all of you. Here's what else is going on today: "Hot Pursuit" is not the awesome comedy you want it to be. Oh, Reese. Oh, Sofia. What happened to all of the good jokes? »

The upcoming crime thriller Sicario has released its very first images showing what seems to be an intriguing cast dynamic between stars Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benecio Del Toro. The film focuses on an FBI agent, played by Blunt, who is placed into the world of Mexican drug cartels. Based on what's being seen, the ordeal will leave her marked, not only ethically, but physically. Check out the new photos to see what we mean! Released exclusively for Hitfix, the film.s photographical debut depicts violent results in store for FBI agent, Kate Macer (Emily Blunt), who is rocking a shiner while clearly nursing some greater concerns.

While rodeo bull riding was the backdrop for Dallas Buyers Club and this year’s Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Longest Ride, it’s set to get even more of a starring role thanks to Emily Blunt and Bronco Belle. Writer/director Khurram Longi is busy rounding up the rest of the cast for the film, which follows the exploits of Raylene Jackson (Blunt), a woman with a chip on her shoulder who harbours a dream of becoming a champion bull rider. She’ll need some support from an old trainer seeking redemption and a shameless hustler of a promoter to make it in a highly competitive field.According to Longi, the idea was born during a road trip across America. “We were driving down from New York and ended up in Texas where, by chance, we stumbled across the world of rodeo. I had never been to one before. We »
Before he goes on to bring us the new Blade Runner movie, Quebecois director Denis Villeneuve will next premiere his new film Sicario at the Cannes Film Festival this month. The modern thriller revolves around a young FBI agent, played by Emily Blunt (thinking of Zero Dark Thirty already) who is recruited into a CIA operation to take down a Mexican drug cartel boss. Along the way she interacts with Alejandro, played by Benecio Del Toro, and Matt Graves, played by Josh Brolin, seen in the photos below. The director recently told The Guardian in a profile that it's "a very dark film, a dark poem, quite violent." We'll have to wait for the trailer to get a glimpse of that violence - as these first look photos aren't too crazy. Take a look. Here's the first set of photos from Sicario revealed so far. Thank you to The Film Stage + HitFix for these. »

“Cannes is the oldest film festival in the world, and I’ve long dreamed of having one of my films there in competition. It’s a dream that lay dormant for a long time; I stopped believing in it. So I’m extremely touched to be part of the festival this year. I didn’t think the film would be selected. Most of the time, at the last minute, they call you and say, ‘Sorry, we aren’t taking your movie.’ Then you cry. I’ve been through that process a few times,” Denis Villeneuve told The Guardian after learning that his film "Sicario" will hit the Croisette this year. We're pretty excited too.

There are a number of movies with familiar faces premiering at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival this month, but Denis Villeneuve's "Sicario" might feature the most intriguing trio of them all. The thriller reportedly centers on Kate Macer (Emily Blunt), a young FBI agent who is recruited into a CIA operation to take down a Mexican drug cartel boss. The mission will find her crossing paths with Matt Graves (Josh Brolin) and Alejandro (Benecio Del Toro) and, according to the film's log line, will rock her "ethical and moral values to the limit." Jon Bernthal, Victor Garber and Jeffrey Donovan are some of the other notable names in the cast, but judging from the exclusive first look images Lionsgate has provided HitFix this may be Blunt's moment to shine. The Golden Globe winner is coming off impressive turns in "Edge of Tomorrow" and "Into The Woods" (and some might argue »

No desire to dress the devil! Fashion designer Miuccia Prada gave her two cents on the popular 2003 book The Devil Wears Prada and its big-screen adaptation in a new interview with Italian publication Corriere della Sera this week. Prada, 65, was fully aware of author Lauren Weisberger's fashion tale and the inclusion of her brand's name in the title. She was hardly a fan of the book, and was even more wary of the 2006 movie, which starred Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, and, Stanley [...] »
Speaking in an interview with John Hazelton in Screen and Telefilm Canada’s Cannes Special supplement due out in May, Villeneuve admits the prospect of tackling a Blade Runner sequel was intimidating.
“Let’s say it wasn’t an easy decision to make,” he said, “because I’m a massive Blade Runner fan, it’s one of my favourite movies.”
The director of Prisoners and Enemy added: “I was massively influenced, like a lot of people, by this movie. And Ridley Scott is a master.
“So I’m going there with a great amount of humility and a great amount of deep joy. And I know I can do it.”
Tom Cruise's latest blockbuster, the critically acclaimed Edge of Tomorrow, got off to a somewhat rocky start at the box office before picking itself up and becoming one of last summer's most welcome sleeper hits grossing over $369M at the worldwide box office. The Doug Liman-directed film, which also co-starred the very talented Emily Blunt, went on to reach an even wider audience when it hit home video, debuting at #1, and managing to make a killing in home video sales raking in another $25-30M. Check out the brand new featurette, which gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the film's epic final battle that featured Cage, Vrataski, and the J-Squad infiltrating the ruins of the Louvre to hunt down the Omega, below: Oscar nominee Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt star in Warner Bros.

While Canadian director Denis Villeneuve is no stranger to the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, having had many titles from his back catalogue screen there, his upcoming effort – Sicario – is something of a watershed, being his first feature-length film to be selected to screen in competition during the event. The film – about Mexican drug cartels – will have a wider release on September 18th, and stars Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro.
The most recent films from Villeneuve include the critically acclaimed Prisoners and Enemy, and the successful director recently spoke to The Montreal Gazette on hearing the announcement of the selection of Sicario, expressing confidence in his latest work.
“It’s my best film yet. It’s the most ambitious in terms of scope. It’s also my most accessible film yet. I take total responsibility for it – whether people like it or not. I had absolute total freedom on the film, »

If you were to ask anyone around The Playlist watercooler what their most anticipated film at the Cannes Film Festival is, you'd likely hear Denis Villeneuve's "Sicario" crop up more than once. "Prisoners" and "Enemy" were very well admired around these parts (and of course, elsewhere too) and the director himself is feeling very confident about his latest work. “It’s my best film yet,” he said at a press conference earlier this month, following the announcement his film had made it into Cannes (via The Montreal Gazette). “It’s the most ambitious in terms of scope. It’s also my most accessible film as well.” It's "...a very dark film, a dark poem, quite violent,” he added, when speaking recently with The Guardian. Starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benicio del Toro, "Sicario" centers on a female cop (Blunt) and two male Delta Force rangers who cross from »

Denis Villeneuve offered just a taste of what to expect for his latest in The Guardian on Friday. "Sicario," slang for hitman, stars Emily Blunt as an FBI agent and Josh Brolin as the CIA official who lead the charge against a horrific drug lord on the streets of Juarez, just outside El Paso, Texas. Tasked with doing the deed is Benicio del Toro's titular assassin. Villeneuve said: “a very dark film, a dark poem, quite violent... It’s about the alienation of the cycles of violence, how at one point we are in those spirals of violence and ask ourselves, ‘Is there a solution?' My movie raises the question; it doesn’t give any answer.” It will be hard to avoid comparisons to Steven Soderbergh's powerful "Traffic," del Toro's 2001 best supporting actor winner that also dwelled in the far-reaching runoff of the Mexican-American drug trade.
