Stewart 'in Talks' to Be Featured in Subversive Iraq War Homefront Satire

4 April 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Kristen Stewart, 'Camp X-Ray' star, to join cast of 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Kristen Stewart to join 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' movie After putting away her Bella Swan wig and red (formerly brown) contact lenses, Kristen Stewart has been making a number of interesting career choices. Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray. She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice. She was the personal assistant to troubled, aging actress Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a history-making Best Supporting Actress César. (Stewart became the first American actress to take home the French Academy Award. »

Last Knights | Review

About Last Knight: Kiriya’s Culture Club Reimagining of the Feudal System

It’s unclear for who or for what reason Japanese director Kazuaki Kiriya decided to undertake his English language debut, Last Knights, a convoluted pseudo-revenge flick that plays like some very watered down version of the classic 47 Ronin mythos but reconstituted within a parallel universe’s sci-fi inspired Crusades tale. A gig is a gig, so we can’t blame the poo poo platter of multicultural actors portraying peoples we’re supposed to believe all resided in the same place (not to mention, fought for the same cause), each with varying degrees of accented and/or broken English. Incredibly flaccid and late staged action sequences following a baffling revenge plot don’t help matters, except maybe to say that even if the world had known an age of such incredible diversity we still wouldn’t be able to all just get along. »

Film Review: ‘Last Knights’

25 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

About 20 minutes or so into the bizarre European/Asian/Middle Eastern fusion cuisine that is “Last Knights,” Morgan Freeman delivers a speech as only Morgan Freeman can — the sort of blazingly eloquent, morally fiery declaration of principles that usually precedes a character’s righteous victory or his agonizing defeat. Freeman exits far too soon, but his presence is enough to momentarily jog your interest in this cut-rate, off-Hollywood debut for Japanese action helmer Kaz I Kiriya, starring Clive Owen as a medieval fighter who seeks to avenge his master’s death. Rapidly tilting into so-clever-it’s-stupid territory, the story hinges on the sort of dramatic plot twist that exists mainly to delay the inevitable bloodletting for as long as possible, though when it finally arrives, the mayhem is engaging enough on its own workmanlike terms. Following a brief theatrical window, the Lionsgate release should swing and parry its way into respectable VOD play. »

Blu-ray details for Camp X-Ray starring Kristen Stewart

21 March 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mpi Media Group has announced the planned Blu-ray release for the critically acclaimed Guantanamo Bay-set drama Camp X-Ray.

Kristen Stewart (Still Alice) stars in the film alongside Peyman Moaadi (A Separation) and John Carroll Lynch (Zodiac) with the Blu-ray due for release on June 2nd.

A young woman (Stewart) joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots. But she ends up as a new guard at Guantanamo Bay instead, 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. A story of two people, on opposite sides of a war, struggling to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay. And in the process, they form an unlikely bond that changes them both.

While the Blu-ray will be presented in 1080p with DTS-hd Master Audio 5.1 surround, »

Exclusive: U.S. Trailer And Poster For 'A Separation' Director Asghar Farhadi's Award Winning 'About Elly'

12 March 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi made international waves with his breakout, Oscar-winning "A Separation" (which topped our 50 Best Films Of The Decade So Far list) and his most recent picture "The Past," he was already getting on radars with "About Elly." First released in 2009, the movie picked up a brace of awards on the festival circuit, including a Silver Bear for Best Director at the Berlin International Film Festival, and Best Narrative Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival. It has taken a little while, but the film is finally getting a stateside release via Cinema Guild, and today we have the exclusive U.S. trailer and poster. Starring Golshifteh Farahani, Taraneh Alidoosti, Mani Haghighi, Merila Zarei, Peyman Moaadi, and Shahab Hosseini, the mystery-thriller follows a group of college friends who reunite for a weekend by the Caspian Sea, only to have things take a dark turn when one of them goes missing. »

'American Ultra' Stars Stewart and Eisenberg Reportedly Join Allen's Next Film Project

9 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

American Ultra stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg will be reunited later this year in another project: Woody Allen's next as yet untitled feature. Bruce Willis is the third cast member whose name has been publicly announced. The source for this information is an "exclusive" report via Deadline.com's Mike Fleming Jr. So far, as Fleming explains in his brief piece, Woody Allen and "his people" haven't confirmed the casting. In other words, things could change in the not-too-distant future. See also: Kristen Stewart Joins Kelly Reichardt Movie Project, also featuring Laura Dern and Michelle Williams. Unsurprisingly, no plot details about the upcoming Woody Allen project have been forthcoming. In fact, one wonders if Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and Bruce Willis – in case they have indeed joined the fold – know what the movie is going to be about. Allen's latest collaborators – Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson – will be producing the film. »
