Video Interview: Mia Wasikowska talks ‘Tracks’

10 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Tracks tells the incredible true story of Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska), a young woman who in 1977 undertook a perilous solo trek across 1,700 miles of stunning Australian outback.

Abandoning city life, Robyn arrives in Alice Springs and declares her ambition to cross the desert to the Indian Ocean to the amusement of the locals. However after months of camping out and working on a camel farm people begin to take her seriously. A chance meeting with National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver) provides her with the necessary financing for her expedition under the condition that he be allowed to photograph parts of her journey for the magazine. With only her dog and four unpredictable camels for company, she embarks on an inspiring and life changing journey of self-discovery.

In this interview for Nerdly, film correspondent James Kleinmann asks Mia Wasikowska (Robyn Davidson) what it was that drew her to Robyn’s story. »

Cannes 2014: Cronenberg's 'Maps to the Stars' in competition

11 hours ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

Fans of body horror master David Cronenberg will be hoping for a late career revival when his new film, 2014's Maps to the Stars, has its grand unveiling at Cannes this May, particularly after the joint disappointment of 2011 psychoanalysis drama A Dangerous Method and the overly faithful Cosmopolis (2012). Enlisting A-List stars Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Robert Pattinson, the film sets itself up as an acerbic portrait of celebrity competition and madness in the shallow waters of Hollywood. Dr. Stafford Weiss (the ever-sleazy Cusack) is a self-help guru while his wife, Christina (Olivia Wilde), manages the career of an obnoxious millionaire child star, Benjie (Evan Bird), who has just checked out of a stint in a drug rehab clinic and is ready to gte back into acting.

Bloody Chaos: Pearce and Pattinson Fight for Their Lives (and Car) in Latest Rover HD Trailer

19 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

The Rover’ trailer HD: Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce in David Michôd’s Australian Outback-set thriller (photo: Robert Pattinson in ‘The Rover’) The Rover, David Michôd’s futuristic, Australian Outback-set thriller that will premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival (Midnight Screenings), has a new trailer. Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson star in this dark tale about a middle-aged man, Eric (Pearce), hunting down the members of a gang who have stolen his last and most prized possession: his beat-up car. Pattinson, best known as the sparkling vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight film series, plays a (now) former member of the gang, Rey — left behind to die after he’s seriously injured in a fight. See The Rover trailer below. The youthful Rey, in fact, is unlike the other gang members. “If you don’t learn to fight," Eric warns him in a hard-to-understand mumble, "your death’s gonna come real soon. »

23 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

First trailers for David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars

17 April 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

eOne has released the first two trailers for David Cronenberg’s upcoming Hollywood ghost story Maps to the Stars, which stars Mia Wasikowska (Stoker), Julianne Moore (Carrie), John Cusack (The Frozen Ground), Robert Pattinson (Twilight), Olivia Williams (Sabotage) and Sarah Gadon (The Amazing Spider-Man 2). Check them out after the official synopsis…

Led by the loathsome yet funny and touching child-star Benjie, we witness the convoluted world of shallow, selfish celebrities and their minions, all of whom are about to be manipulated and destroyed by the young woman who literally represents the fruit of their twisted machinations, Agatha, Benjie’s tormented, apparently psychotic sister. As much as it is a sharp, comic look at a vacant and corrupt world, Maps To The Stars is also a haunting ghost story.

Maps to the Stars will premiere at Cannes, and is currently without a fixed release date.

Rob Pattinson Stars in Two Cannes Entries: 'Map to the Stars' and 'The Rover' (New Trailer, Posters)

17 April 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Maybe Cannes topper Thierry Fremaux didn't want two Rob Pattinson movies in his competition lineup. Pattinson rejoins venerable Cannes auteur David Cronenberg for "Map to the Stars," a follow-up to "Cosmopolis," which earned the "Twilight" star his best reviews to date.  Written by Hollywood satirist Bruce Wagner ("Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills"), "Map to the Stars" stars Pattinson as a limo driver who flirts with both anxious movie star Julianne Moore and her pyromaniac assistant Mia Wasikowska; John Cusack and Olivia Williams star as Hollywood players. Here's the official synopsis (trailer below):  The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Sanford is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Christina mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie, 13, a child star. One of Sanford's clients, Havana, is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother, »

Cannes 2014 Lineup Revealed: Nicole Kidman, Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, and More

17 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This morning the lineup was announced for the annual Cannes Film Festival, the glittery European festival where a premium is placed luxury and decadence and many super important, Oscar-bound films make their starry debut. And this year's festival, which didn't include any big surprises or giant-sized premieres, is still an embarrassment of riches nonetheless.

The opening night film, "Grace of Monaco," features Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. This lavish period biopic, directed by "La Vie En Rose" filmmaker Olivier Dahan, had been previously announced. But it still set the bar pretty high, at least when it came to prestige movies starring big time celebrities. Thankfully, the rest of the slate followed through.

Amongst the movies with big names are "Moneyball" director Bennett Miller's based on a true story "Foxcatcher," which features Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum; genius French director (and Cannes favorite) Olivier Assayas's drama "Clouds of Sils Maria, »

Someone Managed to Make Tom Hiddleston Look Very Creepy

17 April 2014 5:38 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Tom Hiddleston got back into bad-guy mode when he suited up in a black costume to shoot scenes for his upcoming film, Crimson Peak, in Toronto on Wednesday. The project, which also stars Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska, who was also on set with Tom, follows a young woman, played by Mia, as she discovers that her charming husband, played by Tom, has a mysterious past. Tom has been in Toronto since at least late March, when he joined his friend and costar Jessica for her 37th birthday party in the Canadian city. The two sang karaoke, played ping-pong, and enjoyed a big group dinner. Tom, of course, is no stranger to playing raven-haired bad guys, as he shot to fame for his role as Loki in Marvel's superhero films. Despite Tom's onscreen bad guy persona, he still managed to win our March Man-ness competition last month, thanks to his good looks and British charm! »

17 April 2014 3:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

God bless us, every one! It's April 17th, which means it's the cinephile's version of Christmas, because today sees the announcement of the line-up for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, still the biggest and most prestigious international fest in the calendar. Rumors have been flying for a few weeks now, and we've known for a while that the festival would open with Nicole Kidman-starrer "Grace Of Monaco," in which the Oscar-winner plays legendary star-turned-princess Grace Kelly, but now the full festival line-up has been announced and it looks promising. Among the hotly-tipped movies that have been confirmed this morning are David Cronenberg's inside-Hollywood tale "Maps To The Stars" starring Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Olivia Williams and Robert Pattinson, "The Rover," "Animal Kingdom" helmer David Michod's apocalyptic follow-up, also starring Pattinson along with Guy Pearce and Scoot McNairy (which is a Midnight Screening rather than in-competition as expected »

2014 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Main Competition, Un Certain Regard & Special Screenings

16 April 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With only hours ago before the official selection for the Main Competition is announced, we’ve narrowed our final predictions to the following titles that we’re crystal-balling as the films that will be included on Thierry Fremaux’s highly anticipated list. Despite an obvious drought of Asian auteurs (we’re thinking the rumored frontrunner Takashi Miike won’t be included in tomorrow’s list) who’s to say there won’t be some definite surprises, like Jia Zhang-ke’s A Touch of Sin last year.

Several hopefuls appear not to be ready in time, including Malick, Hsou-hsien, Cristi Puiu, and Innarritu, to name a few. But there does appear to be a high quantity of exciting titles from some of cinema’s leading auteurs. We’re still a bit tentative about whether Xavier Dolan’s latest, Mommy, will get a main competition slot—instead, we’re predicting another surprise, »

2014 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: 46th Directors’ Fortnight

16 April 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Hovering around the twenty-one to twenty-four feature film mark with at least a quarter of those films belonging to first time filmmakers, the Quinzaine des Realisateurs (a.k.a Directors’ Fortnight) has in the past couple of years, counted on a healthy supply of French, Spanish and Belgium produced film items, and has been geared towards the offbeat genre items as with last year’s edition curated by Edouard Waintrop and co. To be unveiled on the 22nd, as we attempted with our Critics’ Week predix, Blake Williams, Nicholas Bell and I (Eric Lavallee) are thinking out loud and hedging our bets on what the section might look like or what the programmers might be looking at for 2014. Here is our predictions overview:

'Maps to the Stars' Trailer: Robert Pattinson and David Cronenberg Reveal the Weird and Sexy Side of Celebrity

16 April 2014 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

  After languishing in development hell for more than five years, David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars finally has two new clips to boast about — although one feels more like a rough sketch. Maps to the Stars is Cronenberg’s Hollywood opus à la David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive (but perhaps heavier on the absurdist side), commenting on the industry’s relationship with Western culture, centered on a dysfunctional Tinseltown family. The cast couldn’t be better: Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska (who is quickly becoming our go-to creepy girl, taking over for Christina Ricci), John Cusack, and Robert Pattinson (his second go-round with the director). "Maps to the Stars is very extreme. It's not obviously a very big commercial...

Your Daily Roundup of Celebrity Gossip & Star Shenanigans!

Sex, Rehab & Pyromania! Robert Pattinson's new movie, "Maps to the Stars," serves up plenty of drama in the new trailer. The David Cronenberg movie, which also stars Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Mia Wasikowska, features Robert as a limo driver for Julianne's character, an actress in the midst of a spiral. In the trailer, the two share a rather explicit scene together in the back of the limo - "Twilight" fans, this makes that "Breaking Dawn" broken bed scene blush.

Nsfw Trailer for David Cronenberg’s Maps To The Stars Starring Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, and Robert Pattinson

15 April 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new Maps to the Stars trailer has gone online, and this one is a French, Nsfw version (it's Nsfw because of language and nudity, not because it's French).  The film follows an archetypical Hollywood dynasty including a writer of self-help manuals, his wife who manages the career of their 13-year-old son, and their daughter, who was recently released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania.  The plot also includes Havana, an actress who wants to remake a movie that starred her now-deceased mother.  Like yesterday's trailer, I'm still not quite sure what to make of the movie.  There are clearly some darkly comic elements, but there's also some serious intensity, and it's sometimes difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins.  I can't wait to see this flick. Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film stars John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, »

Second Trailer for David Cronenberg's 'Maps to the Stars' is Nsfw

15 April 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

On the heels of yesterday's first trailer for the almost certainly, Cannes-bound Maps to the Stars, David Cronenberg's new film, comes a second trailer for the film, this one even more inappropriate for the workplace environment than the last so I've thrown an age gate on the trailer. As I said yesterday with the first trailer, Maps to the Stars is described as a contemporary tale exploring the demons of our celebrity-obsessed society, story follows the Weiss family, which is led by Stafford (John Cusack), a psychotherapist and life coach who made his fortune with self-help books. His wife (Olivia Williams) is the overbearing mother-manager of their 13-year-old son (Evan Bird), a TV star recently out of drug rehab. Their estranged daughter (Mia Wasikowska) has just been released from a psychiatric hospital and befriended a limo driver (Robert Pattinson) who is also an aspiring actor. The film is set »
