The movie, based on the book by Andy Mulligan, and scripted by About Time screenwriter Richard Curtis, tells the story of three street kids who survive by rummaging through a huge trash fill on the outskirts of a major city, searching through human waste and filth in hopes of finding food and other items necessary for their survival. One day, one of them finds a small leather bag with a wallet with some money and an ID card, a folded-up map, »

Watch the First Trailer for 'Trash' Starring Rooney Mara

21 July 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I have been pruning my 2015 Oscar predictions lately and I almost removed Stephen Daldry's Trash from my Best Picture predictions... good thing I didn't as the first trailer for the film has been released suggesting we're likely to hear it announced as part of one of the upcoming fall film festivals if not several. Given this version comes from Universal Brazil (where the film actually opens in October) it doesn't exactly give us an idea of where it might show up though as part of tomorrow's announcement of the first wave of Toronto Film Festival features would be a good guess. The film, which stars Rooney Mara,follows three boys in a third world country who scrape a living by picking through trash. One day they find a leather bag, the contents of which plunge them into a terrifying adventure, pitting their wits against corruption and authority to right a wrong. »

Watch: First Trailer For Stephen Daldry's 'Trash' Starring Rooney Mara

21 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Here's the deal: if you see a trailer this week for a prestige, awards contender-seeming movie, the chances are you'll likely see it somewhere on the fall festival slate. And so, even though we weren't quite sure where Stephen Daldry's "Trash" would fit on the calendar, it's done, in the can, a trailer is here, and now you can see if the Oscar race is being shaken up. Based on the book by Andy Mulligan, with a script from Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "About Time") and starring Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Wagner Moura along with newcomers Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein, the story concerns three street kids who survive by picking through a mostly human waste-filled garbage dump on the outskirts of a large city. One day, one of them finds a small leather bag with a wallet with some money and an ID card, a folded-up map, »

‘Weird’ Al Yankovic released the first music video from his newest comedy album Mandatory Fun on Monday for “Tacky,” a parody of Pharrell’s Oscar-nominated song “Happy.”

Celeb Cameos In Weird Al Yankovic's "Tacky"

“Tacky” takes on some of the more unattractive qualities popularized in pop culture – including the constant need to update social media – with lyrics like: “I would live Tweet a funeral, take selfies with the deceased”

The video, which mimics Pharrell’s, features comedians dressed in ridiculous, neon, mix-matched outfits, dancing and lip-syncing to the song. Cameos included Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black.

Stonestreet, who currently stars on Modern Family, took to Twitter to celebrate the video’s release, calling Yankovic a “national treasure.” And Schaal wrote that the video “was a lot of fun to make.”

The “Tacky” release is the first of many, as Yankovic previously »

For film fans, a quality feature can come out at any time, from any one, and discovering an enjoyable and well-crafted feature is truly a pleasure. As we reach the halfway point of the year, many excellent films have already made their way to theatres, films that are well worth a watch. Below, you shall find the list of the top 30 films of 2014 to date, a list that ranges from science fiction thrillers to period dramas.

A few notes to keep in mind when reading our entry: Certain films from our 2013 list make a second appearance on this list. This is because the movies, while technically released this year, were seen by a select few in time for last year’s list, due to the benefit of film festivals and press screenings. The list itself is in no particular order, »

Rooney Mara turns producer-star for 'A House in the Sky'

25 June 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Rooney Mara has been playing things pretty cool since picking up a Best Actress Oscar nomination two years ago for "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." The franchise initially beckoned by David Fincher's Scandi-thriller remake hasn't come to pass, which has left Mara room to be discerning: she had classy leading roles last year in David Lowery's "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" and Steven Soderbergh's "Side Effects," though neither one was built entirely around her; a tart supporting role in Spike Jonze's Best Picture nominee "Her" further added to her credibility. Mara's upcoming slate is pretty high-end, too, with Todd Haynes' "Carol," Stephen Daldry's "Trash" and Joe Wright's "Pan" all at various stages of production, while she'll appear (or not -- who knows?) in one of Terrence Malick's upcoming endeavors. Still, even with all these offers coming along, it never hurts to start developing your own projects. »

Rooney Mara Teams with Annapurna for 'A House in the Sky'

25 June 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a competitive pursuit, Annapurna Pictures, in tandem with actress Rooney Mara, has optioned the New York Times bestseller A House in the Sky by co-authors Amanda Lindhout and Sara Corbett. The memoir will be developed as a starring vehicle for Mara, who will also serve as a producer alongside Annapurna's Megan Ellison. Annapurna's Chelsea Barnard will be the executive overseeing the day-to-day development and production of the project.

A House in the Sky is the dramatic and redemptive memoir of Amanda Lindhout, whose deep passion for exploration of the world's most remote and perilous places, took an unexpected turn when she was abducted in 2008 in Mogadishu, Somalia by a rebel terrorist group.

An astoundingly intimate and harrowing account of Lindhout's fifteen months in captivity, A House in the Sky illuminates the psychology, motivations, and desperate extremism of her captors all the while as she is kept in chains, nearly starved, »

Annapurna Pictures and Rooney Mara Building 'A House in the Sky'

Another project from the illustrious Annapurna Pictures in development. An official press release sent out announces that Annapurna is developing an adaptation of NY Times bestseller A House in the Sky by co-authors Amanda Lindhout and Sara Corbett. The project will star Oscar nominated actress Rooney Mara (A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Side Effects, Her) as Amanda Lindhout, who was abducted in 2008 in Mogadishu, Somalia by a rebel terrorist group.

Annapurna and Rooney Mara Win Bidding War for Memoir 'A House of the Sky'

25 June 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Annapurna Pictures beat out its rivals in a bidding war to option Rooney Mara project "A House in the Sky." The New York Times bestselling memoir is written by Amanda Lindhout and Sara Corbett. Mara will star and serve as a producer alongside Annapurna’s Megan Ellison. Annapurna’s Chelsea Barnard will oversee the day-to-day development and production of the project. It's easy to see why Mara ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"), would be attracted to the harrowing story of how Amanda Lindhout, who loved exploring the world's most remote and perilous places, was abducted in 2008 by a rebel terrorist group in Mogadishu, Somalia. Her memoir recounts her 15 months chained and starved and abused in captivity. The book was brought to Mara's attention by her team at Management 360 who then approached Annapurna.  Mara recently wrapped Todd Hayne's "Carol," starring opposite Cate Blanchett, an adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith. »
