Originally titled How to Catch a Monster, Ryan Gosling's directorial debut was just accepted into the Un Certain Regard selection at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival (see the lineup here) under the title Lost River and now we have our first look at two pictures from the upcoming fantasy, which Warner Bros. will release later this year. On top of directing, Gosling also wrote and stars in the film, along with his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks as well as his The Place Beyond the Pines co-stars Ben Mendelsohn and Eva Mendes and Saoirse Ronan, whom he would have starred with if he'd remained in Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones. Described as a fantasy/thriller, the film centers on a single mother (Hendricks) who's swept into a dark underworld, while her teenage son discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town. These images alone get me excited »

Cannes certainly knows how to roll out the red carpet for Hollywood stars, so it came as no surprise yesterday when Ryan Gosling's directorial debut "Lost River" landed a slot in the fest's edgy Un Certain Regard sidebar. Originally titled "How to Catch a Monster," this dark and surreal film boasts an all-star indie cast including Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn. Though plot details are scant, we know that Hendricks plays a single mother who falls into some sort of dark underworld while her son (played by Iain De Caestecker of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D") happens upon an underwater utopia. Judging from the film's first images (below), "Lost River," which Warner Bros. will distribute later this year, has echoes of a twisted Lynchian fairyland. One image, apparently of Hendricks, immediately brings to mind Lynch's Hollywood-set nightmare "Inland Empire." The Un Certain »

"[He] works in a very free way, he's constantly in an artistic frame of mind.
All I can really say is that [Lost River] centers around a family. There's my character, Bones, his mother and his younger brother. There's also a girl next door played by Saoirse Ronan, called Rat.

Ryan Gosling is a man of many talents, and he has now added directing to the list of things he can do. The first film he has directed is called Lost River, which was previously titled How To Catch a Monster. I'm really excited to see how this movie which has been described as weaving "elements of fantasy noir, and suspense into a modern day fairytale." The first image from the film shown above give us our first look at the tone we'll see, and it looks like something straight out of one of my nightmares! If you can't tell, that's Christina Hendricks with a terrifying look on her face while her head is being enclosed in some kind of… thing. For those of you not familiar with the story yet, here's a short synopsis:
Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy, a single mother of two, »

Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice.” Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups.” Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes.” Hou Hsiao Hsien’s “The Assassin.” Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys.” Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight.” Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow.” Stephen Frear’s untitled Lance Armstrong biopic. Thomas Vinterberg’s “Far From the Madding Crowd.” Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Birdman.”
The list of films and filmmakers once rumored to be hot prospects for the Cannes Film Festival, only to be go unmentioned during this morning’s official selection announcement, is, as usual, a long and tantalizing one — so tantalizing, in fact, that some festgoers may find themselves surveying the actual lineup today with a mild sense of deflation, even disappointment. I’ll be the first to admit that those of us fortunate enough to attend film festivals on a regular basis can too often lapse into a posture of whiny, »

Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River is to screen in the Un Certain Regard category as part of this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Formerly known as How To Catch A Monster, the highly-anticipated dark fantasy stars Mad Men siren Christina Hendricks and former Doctor Who Matt Smith.
Gosling has never been known to shy away from taking risks, and an edgy concept combined with an eclectic cast, including Saoirse Ronan, Ben Mendelsohn and Eva Mendes, combined with the prospect of a definitive actor’s actor in the driving seat could make this something special. Also, hot off the press, is the first image right here:
The festival will also see British directors Mike Leigh and Ken Loach go head to head for the Palme d’Or. Leigh has made Mr Turner, a biopic of the artist Jmw Turner with Timothy Spall and Loach is contending with Jimmy’S Hall, »

If you read our feature on the films we’re most anticipating in this year’s Cannes line-up, you know we’re intrigued by Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, Lost River. Formerly known as How To Catch A Monster, the film promises surreal mystery and, from the looks of this first image, Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks in a tricky situation. Hendricks stars as Billy, a single mother of two who has to journey into a macabre, dark fantasy world even as her eldest son Bones finds a secret road leading to an underwater town. They’ll both have to figure out the mystery if they’re to help their family survive… Cryptic, definitely, and for certain the sort of off-centre, not-so-commercial fare you imagine from a man who has worked with the likes of Nicolas Winding Refn.When we spoke to Hendricks’ co-star, Iain De Caestecker last year, he »
Ryan Gosling's directorial debut has made this year's 2014 Cannes Film Festival line-up, though it has undergone a name change. Previously titled "How to Catch a Monster," it's now going by the name "Lost River".
Saoirse Ronan, Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendohlson, Matt Smith, Eva Mendes and Iain De Caestecker star in the film which follows a single mother is swept into a dark underworld, while her teenage son discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town.
The first two photos from the movie have been released, one being a shot of Gosling on set. The other is a very trippy still from the film itself of a scene involving Hendricks' character.

With Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, Lost River (previously titled How To Catch A Monster) receiving a spot at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, some new details are starting to emerge about the highly anticipated film. In a recent interview with Empire, star Iain De Caestecker revealed a bit about the plot and what to expect.
“All I can really say is that it centers around a family. There’s my character, Bones, his mother and his younger brother. There’s also a girl next door played by Saoirse Ronan, called Rat,” said the actor. “It’s about this family living in a town called Lost River, which is perhaps a place that was once full of family and happiness and love, and is now this town that’s slowly descending into a place without any hope. This family is holding onto the foundations of their house and everything they think they need to hold onto. »

Earlier today, we heard that Ryan Gosling's directorial debut would be premiering at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Previously titled How to Catch a Monster, we now have the first image from the re-titled film, Lost River. The new name for the film apparently derives from its setting, a once idyllic town that's now descending into a place of despair and dragging the families that live there down with it. In addition to the first creepy look at the film, we've got some new info on the plot from star Iain De Caestecker, who you might know from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Lost River also stars Saoirse Ronan, Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendohlson, Matt Smith, Barbara Steele. Hit the jump to check out the first Lost River image, and for more on the picture.

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, »

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup is here, so now we can spend the next month trying to get as much intel on the movies as possible before they screen for critics and cinephiles on the Croisette. And of course, that means lots of images are here, so let's dive into three playing in Competition and one in Un Certain Regard. First up is Ryan Gosling's "Lost River," formerly known as "How To Catch A Monster" (via The Film Stage). Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendelsohn, Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan and "Doctor Who" star Matt Smith feature in this one that has been intriguingly described as "a really bizarre, fantasy-type story, in the vein of 'Goonies' meets 'Twin Peaks.' " Count us in. Next is Xavier Dolan's "Mommy," with the wunderkind filmmaker finally landing in Competition with his fifth feature. And like the wicked "Tom At The Farm," it looks like »

Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan will duke it out with Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Michel Hazanavicius and the Dardenne brothers for the Palme d’Or at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup this morning in Paris by fest topper Thierry Fremaux.
The wide-ranging competition slate is typically heavy on French filmmakers, with Olivier Assayas’ international co-production “Clouds of Sils Maria” and Bertrand Bonello’s fashion-designer biopic “Saint Laurent” joining Hazanavicius’ “The Search” and Godard’s 3D experiment “Goodbye to Language.” Fremaux noted that Godard, famously a no-show at the 2010 Cannes premiere of his “Film socialisme,” had “promised he’ll be there — which doesn’t mean he will!”
One of the more intriguing developments of this year’s competition is the unusual dominance of Canadian auteurs. »

After being rumored, debunked and reaffirmed, it appears Benedict Cumberbatch won't be taking a role in Star Wars: Episode VII after all. The actor's name first surfaced last fall, but the actor completely debunked those rumors while appearing at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. But the source of the rumor reaffirmed their story a couple weeks later when they reported Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones, The Grand Budapest Hotel) had auditioned for a role. But now Cumberbatch says that he will not be in the film, but seemingly confirms that he was in the running for a role, at least at one time. More below! Speaking with Australian outlet The Iris (via ComingSoon), Cumberbatch revealed: "I would've liked a part in Jj's new 'Star Wars' but it won't happen sadly." It sounds like Cumberbatch definitely talked to his Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams about a role, »

So much for all those rumors. Back in September, 2013, Latino Review insisted that Benedict Cumberbatch would be in “Star Wars: Episode VII,” and any denials from his camp would need be taken in the same way as his deflections early on about playing Khan in "Star Trek Into Darkness" (which turned out to be true). The site swore that while Cumberbatch’s 'Episode VII' role would be "very small," it would expand and get much bigger in "Episode VIII" and "Episode IX." To their credit, it seemed like Cumberbatch was having some kind of conversations with “Star Wars: Episode VII”-director J.J. Abrams, but then again, who in Hollywood hasn’t? A list of the actors who have sat down with Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy for a potential part in the new “Star Wars” would be the size of a phone book; as many actors have already said, “everyone »

Did Alan Horn let the cat out of the bag? The Disney Studios chairman confirmed that filming has already begun on the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII during an Apr. 2 interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "We have a lot of them," Horn said of the unannounced cast. "We're just not completely done yet." Michael B.
