We all know that Nicole Kidman isn't afraid to pack on the Pda with hubby Keith Urban, but now, she's creating some buzz for locking lips with Naomi Watts! The Oscar-winning actress hit the stage to give an inspiring speech about female empowerment on Tuesday night at the Women In Film's Crystal + Lucy Awards. She opened the speech by revealing she was nervous to take a part in Jane Campion's student film when she was only 14, because it would have required her to lock lips with another girl on-screen. "My excuse was that I had final exams to study for, but the truth is the part would have required me to appear up on the screen wearing a shower cap and kissing a girl ... I wanted to be the kind of actress with long flowing hair [who] kissed boys ... I was not ready to do the kind of work that threatened anybody, »

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.
In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. »

Directorial enigma Terrence Malick‘s latest Knight Of Cups is currently awaiting a release date. The writer/helmer’s work of late has divided commentators into “profound!” and “pretentious!” camps, with entries such as The Tree Of Life provoking cheers and boos in equal measure.
While the cinemagoing public are deprived of his latest offering, some promotional shots have been released which display Malick and Dop Emmanuel Lubezki‘s typical flair for eye-catching imagery:
Unveiled at the Berlin International Film Festival, anticipation is naturally high whatever the outcome. Cups follows Christian Bale as tortured movie scribe Rick, who roams around Hollywood pondering the nature of existence.

Petty continued: "Somebody tweeted this really cute picture of me [from the film], and it said, 'What's this pig board piece of sh*t?' which is what I say to Keanu, but it was about the new movie. I'm like, 'Seconded'.
"I got a phone call from my manager: 'Why did you diss the new Point Break?' Because that's bullsh*t! That's some stupid sh*t right there!"
Petty also said that she still hasn't watched the trailer for the reboot, saying: "No, I can't do it. »
After much anticipation, hype, and expectation, Terrence Malick's long awaited "Knight Of Cups" finally debuted in February at the Berlin International Film Festival (read our review) and then...well, that was about it. We haven't really heard much about the film since. But a batch of new images have arrived featuring the trio of lead stars in the movie. Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, and Cate Blanchett are the big names in the picture that also features appearances by a slew of others including Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Brian Dennehy, Wes Bentley, and far too many more to mention here (for example, Jason Clarke pops up but doesn't even have a line of dialogue), and follows Rick, a Hollywood writer having an existential crisis, while grappling with complicated relationships with his father and the women in his life. These new images are certainly a nice peek at the beautiful photography by Emmanuel Lubezki, »

Open Road has just announced John Hillcoat's highly anticipated dirty cop drama Triple 9, which was previously schedule for a Sep. 11 release this year, has moved to March 4, 2016. This means not only are we not getting one of the more anticipated movies of the year, but the field of Oscar contenders (and Fall film festival contenders) is now off the grid. Bummer. Starring a massive ensemble, the film centers on a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist and the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for "officer down." Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck action-packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.

Festival director Barry Rivers presented the pair their awards as part of the festival’s opening celebration. They were then interviewed onstage by Variety editor David S. Cohen before a full house at the “Celestial Cinema” outdoor theater at the Wailea Golf Club.
Eastwood proved somewhat laconic but quick with a quip, like his famous father, Clint. At 29, the younger Eastwood has already been making films for 13 years. “It’s been a helluva ride, it really has,” he said. “People don’t realize that you can make a film, and it may not be all that great of a film, but you have an amazing experience. … It’s always a great life experience.”

There are hundreds of film festivals around the world, but Maui has a few touches that make it unique: the setting, the mood and a fest mandate that all entries be life-affirming.
Fest director and founder Barry Rivers says his lineup “is not a Candyland approach to movies. Some of the films offer settings and subject matter that are tough, but ultimately, they have to be transformative and compassionate.”
The fest, running June 3-7 at the Wailea Resort, features 40-plus films and includes “Love & Mercy,” the Brian Wilson biopic; “Mr. Holmes,” with Bill Condon directing Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes; “Learning to Drive,” with Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley; “A Little Chaos,” with Alan Rickman directing Kate Winslet; and an animated version of Kahlil Gibran’s “The Prophet,” produced by Salma Hayek.

Since the announcement of a documentary following the development of the failed Justice League Mortal, we’ve started to see a lot more of what could have been. We’ve seen some concept art for Aquaman and Wonder Woman as well as a sculpture of Martian Manhunter and now we have a new set of storyboard art that sees the Man of Steel (D.J. Cotrona) take on Princess Diana of Themyscira (Megan Gale).
Check them out below:
So why is Superman fighting Wonder Woman? Well, in the movie The Last Son of Krypton would have had his mind taken over by Maxwell Lord (Jay Baruchel), which would have turned him against his team mates. However, it would have all ended up badly for Lord when Batman (Armie Hammer) steps in to snap his neck. Ouch.
