Unless you count the Lego Movie's probable Best Animated Feature bid and the Sundance bow of Love is Strange (I'm still hopeful - it's playing Tribeca right now) 2014 hasn't seen much in the way of Oscar contenders just yet. Recent trailers are changing the collective shrug to raised eyebrows - between The Homesman (previously discussed), Jersey Boys (if you're feeling very generous), the Cannes lineup announcement and these two trailers from past nominated directors Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher) and David Fincher (Gone Girl) the body is ready for the first wave of Oscar predictions. We'll manage them before April wraps.
Both of these trailers have been around for a bit and both blissfully play more like teasers despite their length; the job of a trailer is to sell a future ticket, not to make you feel like you've already seen it so you don't need one. Foxcatcher's traiser was actually »

With the glorious announcement that the sequel to Magic Mike is set for release for July 3, 2015, it got us thinking about who they should they cast opposite Channing Tatum in the much-anticipated male stripping follow-up. From Zac Efron to Taye Diggs and Ryan Gosling, it wasn't too hard to come up with a list of hard-bodied hotties who are more than qualified to take their clothes off and...gyrate! Just imagine any one of these pieces of man candy giving you a lap dance while you stick a dollar or two in their skivvies. »

I.ve been not so patiently awaiting Bennett Miller.s Foxcatcher. What dragged me in? Aside from Miller? Was it Channing Tatum? No. You want to think that. It was actually another turn to drama for Steve Carell that hooked me. I think he can certainly step out away from his comedic roots to make a role like this one believable. I.m sure people though that Jim Carrey wouldn.t make the jump so well, but I think that The Truman Show disproved that theory. All that said, I.m rooting for Carell. »

About a month ago, I wrote a piece here that speculated on some of the Academy Award hopefuls that might be debuting at the Cannes Film Festival. Well, the lineup for Cannes has been announced (at least the preliminary list of titles…look for some movies to be added in the coming weeks), and while a few flicks I mentioned in that article like The Homesman, How to Catch a Monster, and Maps to the Stars are set to unspool in France, the film that probably is the most anticipated, especially in terms of awards potential, is Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher. In fact, I’ve listed it as a Best Picture frontrunner in my Oscar predictions, if you haven’t already noticed. In case you’re not up to speed on this movie, it’s obviously directed by Miller based on a script from Dan Futterman and based on a true story. »

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart could end up in very close proximity next month. The exes are among the scores of stars slated to attend the famed Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 14 to 25 and revealed its lineup in a press conference Thursday. Pattinson, 27, has two films in contention: The Rover, a gritty drama set in a near-future Australia, and Maps to the Stars, a Hollywood-skewering drama costarring Julianne Moore and John Cusack. Stewart, 24, will be seen in the drama Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche. The royal biopic Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, is slated to »

The U.S. will be represented by two films in the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or competition: Actor Tommy Lee Jones—who co-wrote the screenplay and directs fest select “The Homesman”—will also be acting alongside Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”), Miranda Otto (“Rake”), and William Fichtner (“The Dark Knight”) in this year’s competition. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” featuring a starry cast that includes Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, also made the Cannes competition cut. The full lineup was announced by Thierry Frémaux in Paris this morning; it’s his seventh year as the festival’s general delegate. Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars,” starring Robert Pattinson—also in another Cannes select with Guy Pearce titled “The Rover”—is also in competition, as is fellow Canadian Atom Egoyan’s thriller “The Captive,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Rosario Dawson. »
We're all familiar with stars flaunting their hot bods while sunning and swimming in their bathing suits, but these celebs go a step further to take the risqué plunge in their birthday suits. Cameron Diaz, Harry Styles, Rihanna and more have stripped naked to wade in the water, while Hugh Jackman thinks an au naturel dive makes the perfect date night. Then there's some like Olivia Wilde, Emma Stone and Channing Tatum, who chose to peel off their clothing while filming on location just for fun! Take a peek to find out which other famed physiques like to go skinny-dipping in the gallery below. »
Jupiter Ascending: The next sci-fi movie from the Wachowskis is heading to theaters on July 18, and a new image from Jupiter Ascending confirms it can't come soon enough. Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis are featured, ready to fly, thanks to a pair of antigravity boots. [Total Film] Mrs. Doubtfire: A sequel to the 1993 smash hit comedy Mrs. Doubtfire is moving forward (again). The original, directed by Chris Columbus, starred Robin Williams as a recently divorced father who dresses up as a woman to get a job as a housekeeper so he can spend more time with his children. A sequel has been in development since 2001; David Berenbaum (Elf) is writing a new script, and both Columbus and Williams are returning. [The Hollywood Reporter] The Hobbit:...

Earlier today, the lineup for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival was announced, which means that marketing materials are going online, or in the case of Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, back online. A teaser trailer was released last fall, but then Sony pulled it shortly before announcing that the film would be pushed back to 2014. Now that the movie is playing in competition at Cannes, the Foxcatcher trailer is back online, and I highly recommend watching it if you haven't already. There are also new posters and trailers David Michôd’s upcoming thriller The Rover starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and for Atom Egoyan's The Captive starring Ryan Reynolds and Mireille Enos. Both films look fascinating, and I'm eager to hear the reaction to all of these pictures after they play at Cannes. Hit the jump to check out the trailers and posters. The Rover opens in New York and L. »

The Cannes Film Festival is a guaranteed hot spot for big-screen talent and A-list celebrities, and based on this year's recently announced lineup, 2014 won't be much different. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Channing Tatum and Ryan Gosling all have films heading to France next month, and each of the movies just so happens to be ones really worth getting excited about. Recently, we've brought you some updates about "The Rover," David Michôd's highly anticipated follow-up ...

Cannes you believe it? (Sorry, we're already tired from being up early to cover this.) Thierry Fremaux and co. unveiled the slate for this years Cannes Film Festival (with a couple more titles to come), and yes, that means more images from the films in competition. First up is a new look at Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher." The film, originally slated to be released last year, was held back so the director could put the finishing touches on it and now it's headed to the south of France. Here's the synopsis for the movie co-starring Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall: The story of Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz and how paranoid schizophrenic John duPont killed his brother, Olympic Champion Dave Schultz. Next up is "Sils Maria" (or "Clouds Of Sils Maria"), the latest from Cannes fave Olivier Assayas which brings together Juliette Binoche, »

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup has been announced, and it has some heavy hitters. Technically, the biggest is How to Train Your Dragon 2, but Cannes has played host to DreamWorks Animation films in the past in an attempt to give the festival a wider appeal. Plus, that movie is playing out of competition. Among the indies, the one I'll be keeping an eye on is Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo. Other notable contenders include David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars, David Michôd’s The Rover, Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner, Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman, Ryan Gosling's Lost River (formerly titled How to Catch a Monster), Zhang Yimou's Coming Home, and Atom Egoyan's The Captive. Hit the jump to check out the full lineup. The 2014 Cannes Film Festival runs from May 15 – 25th. Via Vulture. Opener Grace of Monaco, »

This morning the lineup was announced for the annual Cannes Film Festival, the glittery European festival where a premium is placed luxury and decadence and many super important, Oscar-bound films make their starry debut. And this year's festival, which didn't include any big surprises or giant-sized premieres, is still an embarrassment of riches nonetheless.
The opening night film, "Grace of Monaco," features Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. This lavish period biopic, directed by "La Vie En Rose" filmmaker Olivier Dahan, had been previously announced. But it still set the bar pretty high, at least when it came to prestige movies starring big time celebrities. Thankfully, the rest of the slate followed through.
Amongst the movies with big names are "Moneyball" director Bennett Miller's based on a true story "Foxcatcher," which features Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum; genius French director (and Cannes favorite) Olivier Assayas's drama "Clouds of Sils Maria, »
