Terrence Malick has let many collaborators into his secretive, creative lair but only a select few have become regulars. But it looks like Hanan Townshend will join folks like production designer Jack Fisk, editor Billy Weber and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki as one of the lucky few. The composer has reunited with the filmmaker to score the director's upcoming "Knight of Cups," his second straight gig with Malick after composing the score for "To the Wonder." Of course, little is actually known of the plot, but it will feature in varying capacities (depending on who gets cut or not): Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Isabel Lucas, Antonio Banderas, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Ryan O'Neal, Jason Clarke, Joel Kinnaman and Shea Whigham. But that's not all Townshend is working on. He's also been hired to contribute additional music to the Malick-produced "The Green Glade Rises," which »

Best known for kick-starting careers of up-and-coming filmmakers, Park City still makes room for first time directors pushing north of a ripe old age north of 50. Writer of unknown entities America So Beautiful (2001) and Circle of Eight (2009), Brian Horiuchi’s (shot in Detroit of 2012) Parts Per Billion has got a Sundance parka friendly cast (comprised of Teresa Palmer, Penn Badgley, Josh Hartnett, Alexis Bledel, Rosario Dawson with legends Frank Langella and Gena Rowlands). This is surely in completion stages.
Gist: The story of three couples dealing with a reality-shaking event that threatens to tear them apart. Inspired and sometimes blinded by their love, Len (Josh Hartnett), Mia (Rosario Dawson), Andy (Frank Langella), Esther (Gena Rowlands), Anna (Teresa Palmer) and Erik (Penn Badgley) are as flawed and beautiful as any of the billions who are facing this human-made biological disaster.

Not that it is shrouded in mystery, but Mark Webber has a distinct way of working that might be regarded Cassavetes-like for his realism and making his narratives into true family affairs – we only need to reference The End of Love (Sundance ’12) as a prime example. And speaking of family, Webber reteams with cinematographer Patrice Lucien Cochet and here partners up with Teresa Palmer – the actress and actor are attached at the limb in more than just a creative manner. Filming commenced on The Ever After in Australia earlier in the year and apparently moved from Los Angeles and New York in July and August, which means a rough cut could have been submitted. Webber, Palmer, pint-sized Phoebe Tonkin, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Melissa Leo, Joshua Leonard, Tahyna Tozzi, Kid Cudi and Tom Bower are part of the film’s make-up and Before Midnight was such a hit last year »

Kids. Such as Sex, Lies, and Videotape or Reservoir Dogs before it, and such as Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine and Fruitvale Station after it, Larry Clark & Harmony Korine’s seminal film is forever connected in “spirit” to the lieu where it received its secret midnight premiere screening in 1995. The Sundance Film Festival might be known as the birthplace of U.S indie filmmaking innovation, avant-gardism, a larger definition of the low budgeted film response to Hollywood in not only narrative but in the non-fiction form, but it is a festival made strong by its renewal and familiarity. That close acquaintanceness exists in Kids‘ starlets Rosario Dawson and Chloë Sevigny filmography/career path trajectory and connection to Park City (both have several indie films slated for ’14 – of which I’ve included in our predictions list) and it is that “familiarity” that is visibly noticeable in how I map out my annual predictions list. »

This might not be the best time for a Southern California heat wave. As temperatures reached past the 90 degree mark Wednesday in Los Angeles, a very pregnant Teresa Palmer tried her best to stay cool in the sun. Wearing rolled up sweats and a gray T-shirt, Palmer kept things super cool and casual when she stepped outside her Los Feliz home to meet the cable man. In addition to her ultra-comfy look, the glowing mom-to-be opted to go au natural on the hot sunny day. Palmer's decision to show off her baby bump so publicly shouldn't be a surprise to loyal fans. Last month, the Warm Bodies star posed in her underwear for a tasteful Instagram shot. Plus, when Palmer and her fiancé »
Today we get our first look at Simon Pegg, complete with a moustache, in the upcoming Australian film Kill Me Three Times. Directed by Kriv Stenders (Red Dog) and written by first time screenwriter Kevin McFarlan, the cast for this one features a nice mix of old and new faces such as Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Sullivan Stapleton (the upcoming 300: Rise of an Empire), Bryan Brown (F/X), Alice Braga (Elysium), Callan Mulvey (Zero Dark Thirty) and Luke Hemsworth (brother of Chris & Liam).
Kill Me Three Times is being billed as a Rashomon-esque tale of an assassin (Pegg) hired by a rich man (Mulvey) to kill his wife (Braga). Also involved are a gambling addict (Stapleton) caught in a life insurance scam with a local girl (Palmer), a corrupt cop (Brown) and a surfer (Hemsworth) trying to protect the Braga’s character from the assassin.

Bruce Dern in ‘Nebraska’: AFI Fest 2013 highlight The Los Angeles-based AFI Fest, which kicked off last Thursday, November 7, 2013, continues until next Thursday. On Monday, November 11, the highlight of AFI Fest 2013 is Alexander Payne’s Nebraska (7:00 p.m. at Tcl Chinese Theatre), likely to earn a Best Actor Academy Award nomination for veteran Bruce Dern, who earlier this year took home the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival. (Photo: Bruce Dern, Will Forte in Nebraska.) Set in Kentucky (kidding), Nebraska accompanies an elderly man (Dern) and his son (Will Forte) as they travel from Billings, Montana, to Lincoln, Nebraska, so he can collect sweepstakes prize money he believes he has won. In sum, Nebraska is what’s called a Road Movie, in which the Road is a metaphor for Life. Shades of brothers Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise getting to know one another in Barry Levinson’s Rain Man, »

This is your first look at Simon Pegg as an assassin in the movie Kill Me Three Times. The movie also stars Luke Hemsworth, Sullivan Stapleton, Alice Braga, Bryan Brown, Callan Mulvey, and Teresa Palmer .
The story follows a singer in a surf town (Braga) who "is the link between three tales of murder, blackmail, and revenge. Pegg plays an assassin hired by the singer’s husband; Stapleton is a gambling addict trying to pay off his debts through a life insurance scam masterminded by Palmer’s small town Lady Macbeth. Brown is a corrupt cop and Hemsworth plays a surfer trying to save Braga from her would-be killer."
This is definitely a different role for the actor. What do you think of his look for the movie? »

Director Kriv Stenders nail-biting Australian crime thriller Kill Me Three Times is set in the surfing town of Eagle’s Nest, where a beautiful young singer, played by Elysium’s Alice Braga, connects three different plot strands of murder, blackmail and revenge. One of those tense tales sees Great Brit Simon Pegg as methodical, moustachioed assassin hired by a wealthy husband (Callan Mulvey) to end the life of his wife. However, Pegg’s gun-for-hire finds he’s not the only one targeting the young beauty.
Kill Me Three Times is based on an original screenplay by James McFarland and has an impressive cast which includes Sullivan Stapleton, Teresa Palmer, Bryan Brown and Luke Hemsworth. Ben Mendelsohn and Abbie Cornish are also rumoured to feature. Check out a bad-ass looking Pegg in the film expected early next year.
