Cannes: Looking Past the Hype and Hate (Analysis)

17 April 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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, »

Poster for Denzel Washington's The Equalizer

17 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Check out this poster for Denzel Washington’s latest action flick, The Equalizer. Based on an ’80s detective show, this one reunites Washington with Antoine Fuqua, who helped him score an Oscar for Training Day. Here’s the premise:

Washington plays a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life in Boston. He comes out of his retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), and finds himself face to face with Russian gangsters.

In the original TV show, Edward Woodward played a retired intelligence officer, not a black ops commando who faked his own death, but you expect them to ratchet up the drama in adaptations like these. There have been some excellent movies based on shows from the ’70s and ’80s, including Maverick, The Fugitive, and the Mission Impossible franchise. On the other end of the spectrum you have Dark Shadows and Lost in Space. »

Check out the poster here: "The Equalizer" is based on the CBS series which starred Edward Woodward and ran from 1985 to 1989. It also had a kick-ass theme song. The new version also stars Marton Csokas, Melissa LeoRobert Wahlberg and Haley Bennett. "The Equalizer" opens September 26. »

17 April 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This year marks the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival, an assemblage of the best and brightest in the film world. Last year marked a heavy period of controversy when Steven Spielberg presided over a jury that awarded the coveted Palme D'Or to Blue Is The Warmest Color. This year, the jury is presided over by Jane Campion, and onlookers are curious to see if controversy strikes again. Cannes has announced that a lot of big names are participating in this year's festival. Recent Oscar winner for Best Director Michel Hazanavicius has returned with The Search, a remake of the 1948 drama from Fred Zinnemann, and the follow-up to his silent hit The Artist.

Complete 2014 Cannes Film Festival Lineup

17 April 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This morning the 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup was announced and while at least one Out of Competition title is still to be announced, along with the Critics' Week and Directors' Fortnight lineups, we have a look at what films make up the competition and it's largely a lot of the titles that were rumored heading into today's announcement. Among the competition titles you have Atom Egoyan's Captives, which we'll have to hope is better than Devil's Knot, Bennett Miller's highly anticipated Foxcatcher, Jean-Luc Godard's 3D feature Goodbye To Language, The Homesman from Tommy Lee Jones, Ken Loach's Jimmy's Hall and David Cronengberg's Maps to the Stars. I'm jealous I won't be there to see Xavier Dolan's first time in competition with Mommy, Mike Leigh is again at Cannes with Mr. Turner and Michel Hazanavicius returns to Cannes after The Artist took the fest by storm with The Search. »

17 April 2014 7:32 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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."

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.

17 April 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Another day, another tear-jerking young adult adaptation. Just as we started to emotionally recover from the breathtaking trailer for John Greene's The Fault in Our Stars, Warner Bros. hit us with a first look at If I Stay, based on Gayle Forman's 2009 novel of the same name. At first, you think you're in for another bittersweet story of young love: Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) dedicates her life to classical music, only to fall for adorable rocker Adam Wilde (Jamie Blackley).

Cannes 2014 Lineup Revealed: Nicole Kidman, Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, and More

17 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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, »

Robert Pattinson and 9 other stars with films at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival

17 April 2014 3:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The last four or five editions of the Cannes Film Festival have been heavy on global movie star power. Sure, it won't always compete with Hollywood fueled Toronto, but the programmers have made sure the paparazzi have had someone pretty to photograph on the festival's legendary red carpet.  2014 is no different. (You could also argue more well known actors have jumped into he prestige game in their off time over the past decade, but, frankly, it's somewhat cyclical.) With that in mind, here are 10 big names who we expect to follow their films to Cannes in just a few weeks. Robert Pattinson The former "Twilight" star has been to Cannes before. He starred in David Cronenberg's drama "Cosmopolis" which premiered on the Croisette in 2012. Now, he's back with another Cronenberg title, "Map to the Stars," and David Michôd's "The Rover" alongside Guy Pearce. Nicole Kidman We've known this one for awhile. »

Dark And Intriguing Poster Arrives For Denzel Washington’s ‘The Equalizer’

17 April 2014 2:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The new poster for The Equalizer has arrived and it certainly has a simplistic, noir feel to it. The story revolves around a former black ops commando (Denzel Washington) who fakes his own death in order to live the quiet life. However, he is dragged back into his former life while trying to rescue a prostitute (Chloë Grace Moretz) and inadvertently draws the attention of the Russian mob and rogue CIA agents.

Here it is in all it’s beauty:

Denzel Washington has certainly proven his action skills over recent years so it’s exciting to see him return to this genre. Putting him with Moretz also has the potential to be a spectacular cinematic pairing.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) The Equalizer opens at UK cinemas on 10th October 2014.

The First Poster lands for Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer

17 April 2014 2:36 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Sony have released the first poster for the theatrical version of the hit TV show The Equalizer. Up to now all we’ve seen is a single image so hopefully a trailer will follow soon.

The TV show was released back in 1985 and ran for four seasons. It starred British legend Edward Woodward as Robert McCall who worked for a secret Us Governement Agency which was never named. The movie treatment sees Denzel Washington taking on the lead role as McCall alongside a great cast which also inclides Chloë Grace Moretz, Marton Csokas, Melissa Leo and Haley Bennett.

Starring Denzel Washington, it tells the story of a former black ops commando who faked his death and is now living a quiet life and returns to action to rescue a prostitute from evil pimps; his actions cause the Russian mob to send rogue CIA agents to kill him; he battles back against overwhelming odds, »

Cannes Unveils 2014 Official Selection Lineup

17 April 2014 2:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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. »

Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, Kristen Stewart are carpet-bound as Cannes 2014 lineup is revealed

17 April 2014 2:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux sent out mixed messages in his -- very long, as usual -- preamble to announcing this year's Cannes Film Festival lineup. First he mentioned a focus on newer, fresher filmmakers, but mentioned elsewhere that "Cannes is an event for the regulars." Predictably enough, the latter statement turned out to be closer to the truth: of the 18 films competing for this year's Palme d'Or, 13 have been to the dance before. (And of the Competition virgins, Bennett Miller and Xavier Dolan are hardly unknowns.) Early on, meanwhile, Fremaux made the initially bold statement that 15 women were in the Official Selection, promising a bounty of female directors for jury president Jane Campion to consider. It turned out to be a slight manipulation of the truth: several of those women are involved in portmanteau films, while only two of them -- Naomi Kawase and surprise inclusion Alice Rohrwacher »

Based on the 80's t.v. show of the same name, The Equalizer sees Denzel Washington teaming up again with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua for the story of Robert McCall (Washington), a former black ops commando, who, after faking his own death, finds his peaceful life shattered when he rescues a girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) from a group of Russian gangsters. Early word on the R rated action movie is good, so good in fact that early test screenings have put a sequel on the fast track. Columbia Picture have dropped the first poster for the movie, which doesn't give much away, but does make quite the impression. Released: 26th October (U.S.)/ 10th September (Irl/U.K.) »

Chloë Moretz to Star in ‘The 5th Wave’ Adaptation

16 April 2014 10:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Those at Sony working on the adaptation of Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave really needed a star to lead their film – and it seems they have found one in the form of Chloë Moretz. There is certainly stiff competition in the young adult cinema genre at the moment, with incredible success for other contenders, but with an alien twist and Moretz in the lead, this adaptation certainly does look promising.

The 5th Wave is an alien invasion film in which four deadly attacks have left Earth almost destroyed, and a fifth wave is on its way. The film is led by 16-year-old Cassie who is desperate to save her younger brother before the inevitable happens but when she meets a young man, she learns that he may just be her last hope.

Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio, had this to say on the casting news:
