Camp X-Ray, 2014.
Directed by Peter Sattler.
A soldier assigned to Guantanamo Bay befriends a man who has been imprisoned there for eight years.
Camp X-Ray follows the story of Pvt. Amy Cole (Kristen Stewart) during her time as a guard in Guantanamo Bay. Unsure of what to expect in her new post and filled with a weight of responsibility following the 9/11 attacks, we watch on as she slowly realises that one the detainees may be the closest thing to a friend she’s ever had.
After a suitably bleak and oppressive opening, we pick up with our lead and it’s not quite the sort of introduction you might expect. We join her as she’s rushed through the base’s orientation before being thrown head first into her new duties and »

We got a trailer last month, and IFC Films has released the first poster for Camp X-Ray, writer-director Peter Sattler’s Sundance hit which sees Kristen Stewart (Twilight) as a guard at Guantanamo Bay who strikes up a friendship with one of the detainees, portrayed by Payman Maadi (A Separation)…

Kristen Stewart takes the lead in Camp X-ray, a film in which she plays a soldier who has joined the army to escape her small town roots. In doing so, she becomes a guard at Guantanamo Bay and strikes up a friendship with a detainee. The film sounds very familiar to Prisoner Of War or Boys Of Abu Ghraib (as it was known in the Us), although the plot device of having a captor befriend a captive isn’t exactly something new. What may add an extra layer to the conflict is Stewart attempting to make it in a man’s world.
The poster plays on Stewart’s star power, while doing the obvious Photoshop tactic of blending her body into another image. Not trying to draw any conclusions from the poster, but is it suggesting Stewart’s character is bigger than all this or that it is a part of her? »

With the Twilight franchise behind her, Kristen Stewart is taking on vastly different roles, such as the upcoming indie drama Camp X-Ray. IFC Films has released the first poster for writer-director Peter Sattler's war tale, which stars Kristen Stewart as a young soldier assigned to Guantanamo Bay. There, she befriends a prisoner on the opposite side of the war on terror. Take a look at this one-sheet before Camp X-Ray debuts in theaters and on VOD formats October 28.

Erstwhile "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart looks even sterner than usual as a Guantanamo Bay prison guard in the new poster for the Sundance hit "Camp X-Ray." In the film, Stewart plays a new guard at Gitmo, where she strikes up an unlikely relationship with one of the detainees, played by "A Separation's" Peyman Moaadi (who uses the alternate spelling Payman Maadi in English-language roles). The poster's tagline sums it up: "Connection takes courage." Check out the poster here: Directed by Peter Sattler, it also stars John Carroll Lynch, Lane Garrison, and Joseph Julian Soria "Camp X-Ray" will be released in theaters and VOD October 28. »

Okay, Taylor Lautner, it’s your move. The primary “Twilight” duo of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have used their Ya-vampire cache as a stepping stone to work with extremely interesting filmmakers: Walter Salles, Olivier Assayas, David Cronenberg, David Michod and many, many more. Lautner has fallen behind in that regard, but it’s possible he might have been legitimately interested in “Abduction” and “Grown Ups 2” (and/or, he just hasn’t found the right roles yet). That’s neither here nor there, but it does remind us that Kristen Stewart has another intriguing looking project coming up. Titled “Camp X-Ray,” the movie is an indie that premiered at Sundance earlier this year, and features the actress as in an unlikely, but challenging role of a Guantanamo Bay detention camp guard. Written and directed by first-time feature helmer Peter Sattler, the movie co-stars Tara Holt, John Carroll Lynch, Lane Garrison, »

The full lineup for this year's BFI London Film Festival was announced this morning (September 3), and as ever comprised an impressive cross-section of the biggest hits from Sundance, Cannes and Venice, spread across the festival's main competition entries and themed strands.
Digital Spy runs down 14 of the movies you need to catch if you're in the Big Smoke for this year's festival.
Following strong reviews at its Telluride world premiere last weekend, this intelligently crafted biopic of pioneering codebreaker Alan Turing is one of the year's first surefire Oscar frontrunners, with Benedict Cumberbatch's lead performance singled out for particular praise.
Cumberbatch stars as the brilliant but socially awkward Turing, whose groundbreaking work in computer science and cryptanalysis proved crucial during World War II, before his homosexuality led to his prosecution and apparent suicide in the 1950s. Keira Knightley, Mark Strong and Matthew Goode co-star, with Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) directing. »
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").
