Long-Gestating Terrence Malick Drama Weightless Unveils Running Time And Star-Studded Cast

12 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It may have first entered production all the way back in 2011, but thanks to directing duties on both To The Wonder and, more recently, the Christian Bale-led Knight of Cups, Weightless fell far down the pecking order for esteemed filmmaker Terrence Malick.

It’s finally starting to display signs of life, however, with the British Board Of Film Classification (via The Playlist) posting not only the movie’s official running time – just north of 145 minutes in length – but also the ensemble cast that will be headlining Malick’s latest creative effort.

Pulling together some of the talent that also featured in existential feature Knight of Cups, the filmmaker will reteam with Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman for the musical drama, while there’s also roles for Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Bettis, Bérénice Marlohe, Florence Welch, »

Terrence Malick’s ‘Weightless’ Gets Runtime, Official Cast, and Rating

14 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With Knight of Cups arriving on Blu-ray soon (albeit with some embarrassing cover art) and Voyage of Time finally getting a release date, the year of Terrence Malick looks to continue as promised. His other feature in the can is the Austin-set Weightless, which follows intersecting love triangles in the world of music. Today finally brings confirmation it’s complete with an official running time, rating, and cast.

Thanks to an update at the British Board of Film Classification, we know they’ve given the film a 15 rating for “infrequent strong sex” and “sex references,” which makes it likely the MPAA will slap the film with an R rating. They also note that Weightless runs 145 minutes and 45 seconds — nearly 30 minutes longer than Knight of Cups — and confirm the cast: Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., »

Check out the final poster for Laika Studios' Kubo and the Two Strings, in theaters this August!

Focus Features has released the final poster for Laika Studios' Kubo and the Two Strings, an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan.

From Kristen Stewart to Steven Spielberg, Awards Possibilities Abound in Cannes Lineup

10 May 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Inasmuch as anything can be called “official” in the unscientific business of Oscar-watching, the early-fall festival trifecta of Venice, Telluride and Toronto marks the official start of awards season: Venice, in particular, is on a roll, having premiered the last two best picture winners (“Spotlight” and “Birdman,” not to mention 2013’s close runner-up “Gravity”) in calmly European style before the noise built up on the other side of the pond.

Happily situated in the less frenzied days of spring, Cannes sits at a respectable distance from the mania of the U.S. awards derby. It is, after all, a festival principally devoted to the kind of high-art world cinema that rarely rules the Oscars: For every Palme d’Or winner like “The Pianist” or “Amour” that breaks through to Academy voters, there are several others (“Winter Sleep,” “Blue Is the Warmest Color,” “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days”) that aren’t remotely on their wavelength. »

Kubo And The Two Strings Unveils Stirring Final Poster

5 May 2016 1:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Meet Kubo. Art Parkinson’s humble warrior who is destined for greatness – and he doesn’t even know it yet. Adorning the latest and indeed final poster for Laika and Focus Features’ animation Kubo and the Two Strings, Parkinson’s eyes a grand adventure alongside his two loyal companions.

Those allies in question are Charlize Theron’s Monkey and a charismatic Beetle, played here by Matthew McConaughey.

What has us all the more excited for Kubo and the Two Strings is the fact that Knight, having served as an award-winning animator and head of Laika, is poised to make his directorial debut in a few months’ time. Can »

Laika’s ‘Kubo and the Two Strings’ Gets a Fantastical Final Trailer

29 April 2016 3:01 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In terms of Hollywood animation, no studio comes close to the level of detail and texture found in the films of Laika. Perhaps it has to do with their foundation of stop-motion animation compared to the reliance of CG from the likes of Pixar and DreamWorks, but with every film they’ve delivered something different, and beautiful. After the wonderful trio of Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls, the animation company is back with Kubo and the Two Strings, this time CEO Travis Knight helming solely.

Coming from an original script by Marc Haimes and Chris Butler (ParaNorman) the stop-motion/CGI hybrid (like their last work) is described as a sweeping, swashbuckling adventure set in a mythical ancient Japan. With a voice cast featuring Art Parkinson, Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes, George Takei, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, and Brenda Vaccaro, the final trailer has now arrived, along with a set of beautiful posters. »
