Venice — Known as the "First Lady of Iranian Cinema", Iran's premier female director Rakhshan Bani-e'temad is a formidable chronicler of the day-to-day existence of Iranian people. Not a million miles removed from the outlook of the Dardennes brothers in Belgium or Ken Loach in the UK, she is concerned largely with so-called ordinary lives. "Tales (Ghesseha)" is a multistranded take on a dozen or so people's stories intersecting across a single city. Some characters are encountered once, never to return, others recur throughout, but it's not a film with a protagonist or supporting characters in the traditional sense; it's much more a slice of life/lives. Indeed, "Tales" is almost an anthology film, and was initially conceived as a series of shorts. Using an ensemble of actors she has worked with before, we meet the characters (some of whom apparently appeared in earlier works, but I'm afraid I'm not an »

Venice — Italy’s Microcinema Distribuzione has acquired local rights to Iranian drama “Melbourne,” which opened Venice Critics’ Week out of competition.
A first work, written and directed by Nima Javidi, “Melbourne” stars “A Separation” protag Peyman Moaadi in the story of a young man and his partner who are prevented from leaving Iran for Australia by a tragic event.
The drama previously bowed at Tehran’s Fajr Film Festival and was also at the Cannes Market in May, sold by Iranian Independents.
Iranian Independents’ topper Mohammad Attebai says he is in talks with several other prospective buyers for the film, which will continue making the rounds on the festival circuit.
Microcinema is Italy’s leading theatrical digital distributor with a network of some 300 screens. Its releases include Aleksei Fedorchenko’s “Silent Souls,” following its 2010 Venice bow.

‘Camp X-Ray’ trailer 2014: Kristen Stewart and Payman Maadi in Guantanamo’s ‘war zone’ (photo: Kristen Stewart in ‘Camp X-Ray’) The official Camp X-Ray trailer is out. "Make no mistake about it. This is a war zone," a male voice tells the recruits (and us) at the start of the movie trailer, set in Guantanamo’s temporary detention center Camp X-Ray. A "war zone" in more ways than one; he’s referring not only to the physical danger faced by the U.S. military guards (and their Muslim prisoners — or rather, "detainees"), but also, and more ominously, to a war of minds and mindsets between the two groups, who may have more in common with each other than is apparent on the surface. Private Amy Cole aka Kristen Stewart is forewarned: "You can talk to ‘em, but do not let these guys learn anything about you. Do not let them get inside your head. »

Kristen Stewart is still trying to distance herself from "Twilight," and the new trailer for the Sundance entry "Camp X-Ray" showcases what looks to be her heaviest role yet. Stewart plays a new guard at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, where -- like Clarice Starling in "Silence of the Lambs" -- she's told, "do not let them get inside your head." She soon finds that things aren't as black-and-white as she'd been told, and begins to forms an unlikely bond with one of the detainees, played by "A Separation" star Peyman Moaadi. You can watch the trailer embedded at the top of this post. Directed by first-timer Peter Slatter, "Camp X-Ray" also stars Lane Garrison ("Prison Break"), Julia Duffy ("Shameless"), and John Carroll Lynch ("Zodiac"). HitFix's Drew McWeeny gave the fim a "B" after seeing it at Sundance. "Camp X-Ray" opens in theaters and VOD October 28. What do you think of the trailer? »

Kristen Stewart stars as Amy Cole, who seeks out a career in the army, only to end up as a guard standing watch over Guantanamo Bay. She soon conforms to her surroundings while striking up an unusual relationship with one of the prisoners, played by Payman Maadi. Confronted with his torture at the hands of her comrades, will she be able to survive her own experiences within this notorious detention camp?

Back in July we brought you new stills from the Guantanamo Bay drama Camp X-ray, directed by Peter Sattler and starring Kristen Stewart. Now we return with the trailer which gives us a far better look at what’s in store.
Set in post-9/11 America, Kristen stars as Private Amy Cole, a young woman determined to make something of herself in the Us Army. However, instead of being sent out to Afghanistan she’s assigned a role as a guard in Guantanamo Bay. While facing hostility from many of the prisoners Amy manages to strike up a friendship with Ali Amir (Peyman Moaadi), one of the detainees, as the pair attempt to come to terms with their separate – but intertwining – situations. Julia Duffy, Tara Holt, Cory Michael Smith, Lane Garrison, Joseph Julian Soria, John Carroll Lynch and Yousuf Azami co-star.
This looks like it could get emotional especially considering the focus and topic. »

One of the first things Private Amy Cole (Kristen Stewart) is told when she starts at Guantanamo Bay is, "You can talk to 'em, but do not let these guys know anything about you. Do not let them get inside your head." Then she meets Ali (Payman Maadi), one of the prisoners she's in charge of, and she realizes things aren't so black and white at "Camp X-Ray."
Stewart has done her best to shed her "Twilight" past, with racy roles in movies like "The Runaways" and "On the Road." Judging by this trailer for "Camp X-Ray," which was written and directed by Peter Sattler, she's not giving up any time soon. It's a busy year for the young star; she also shares the screen with Juliette Binoche and Chloë Grace Moretz in Olivier Assayas's "Clouds of Sils Maria," which currently does not have a release date.

The first trailer is out for the military drama "Camp X-Ray" which opens October 17th. Kristen Stewart stars as Amy Cole, a woman who becomes a guard standing watch over Guantanamo Bay. She soon strikes up an unusual relationship with one of the prisoners (Payman Maadi). Witnessing his torture at the hands of her colleagues, she wonders if she will survive her time within this notorious detention camp?

Though she’s still undoubtedly best known for her role as lovelorn teenager Bella Swan in the blockbuster Twilight franchise, Kristen Stewart has been taking big steps to showcase her dramatic chops in recent years. First, in between the penultimate and final entries of that supernatural romance saga, she brought free-spirited Marylou to life in a surprisingly strong adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. Then, Stewart went full action heroine for Snow White & the Huntsman, a mediocre title boosted by her convincing work.
Stewart’s most exciting performance to date is one we have yet to see – the actress is toplining Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche and Chloe Grace Moretz later this year – but before that title hits, Stewart’s Sundance pic Camp X-Ray, in which she plays a Guantanamo Bay prison guard who bonds with a detainee (Payman Maadi), will be getting a theatrical run in October. »

The film has been described as going beyond the politics of the controversial detention centre and digging into the humanity of its characters, and now IFC has launched the first trailer teasing exactly that.
A young woman joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small-town roots. Instead, she ends up as a new guard at Guantanamo Bay, where her mission is far from black and white. Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees. As two people on opposite sides of a war, they struggle to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay. In the process, they form an unlikely bond that changes them both. »

“Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on. As soon as you start thinking about your career as a trajectory—like, as if you’re going to miss out on some wave or momentum—then you’re never doing anything for yourself anyway," Kristen Stewart told Elle. "Then you’re truly, actually, specifically working for the public. You’re turning yourself into a bag of chips.” And so, we'll see if Team KStew digs her latest flavor. The first trailer has arrived for the actress' Sundance drama "Camp X-Ray," and there's nary a vampire to be found. Instead, the movie focuses on the relationship that develops between a young female guard at Guantanamo Bay and a detainee. We haven't seen this one yet, and while opinions were mixed, Stewart's work got some good reviews out of Park City. Payman Maadi, Lane Garrison, »

‘The Huntsman’ release date announced as ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2′ drops Snow White aka Kristen Stewart (photo: Chris Hemsworth in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’) Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has a new title, as the "sequel" to Rupert Sanders’ 2012 fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to arrive on screens in 2016 without Snow White — played by Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad Joan of Arc-ish heroine (minus the burning at the stake) in the original film. So, Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has now been renamed The Huntsman. Now, does it sound idiotic to drop Snow White from what was purportedly going to be a Snow White movie sequel? Well, it does — and that’s because it is. So, instead of calling Snow White and the Huntsman 2, or rather, The Huntsman, a "sequel," the film is now being referred to as a "spin-off" — or, to be more precise, »
