Gus Van Sant’s ‘Sea of Trees’ Booed at Cannes Premiere

15 May 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gus Van Sant’s latest movie “The Sea of Trees,” starring Matthew McConaughey, screened for the press for the first time at the Cannes Film Festival Friday evening to a chorus of boos.

The first movie in competition at the festival to meet with such a negative response, it co-stars Naomi Watts and Ken Watanabe. McConaughey plays an American who travels to Japan’s “suicide forest” after the death of his wife.

Variety critic Scott Foundas tweeted that the film was “one for nobody,” while others in the auditorium also noted the widespread boos from the Palais audience.

If Gus Van Sant's filmography can be divided, Scorsese-style, into "one for me, one for them," Sea Of Trees is one for nobody. #Cannes

Boos for Sea of Trees. Yikes. #Cannes2015

Watch: New International Trailer & Photos From Guillermo del Toro’s "Kinky" ‘Crimson Peak’

15 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One could argue there are two sides to filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. The weird and wonderful drama-slanted genre pictures (“Devil’s Backbone,” “Pan’s Labyrinth”) and the more mainstream, big blockbuster-sized version of his phantasmagorical leanings (“Hellboy,” “Pacific Rim”). And apologies to the disciples, but it’s been a long time (“Pan’s Labyrinth” in 2006) since the Mexican filmmaker has made a uniformly great picture. So it’s with a mix of trepidation and gentle excitement that we look forward to “Crimson Peak,” del Toro’s supernatural mystery/ haunted house movie that looks like a return to genre with a dramatic bent. And the cast—Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam—is superb. Perhaps, and more importantly, its R-rating and recent quotes from the cast suggest something a little bit genuinely macabre and transgressive. "It's really kinky," Hiddleston said during a recent set visit."There is a »

Crimson Peak: Jessica Chastain Talks Misery Inspiration, Guillermo del Toro, and More

14 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While I’ve done a lot of on-set interviews over the past decade, the group interview with Jessica Chastain on the set of Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak was extremely unique. Not only did we speak with her in her trailer, we got to watch her play her character’s lullaby on a small piano and met her extremely cute dog. Let’s just say, this is not the norm for on-set interviews. As most of you know, del Toro co-wrote the film with Matthew Robbins, and the film also stars Mia WasikowskaTom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam.  The synopsis reads, “In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes and remembers.” During the interview Chastain »

Crimson Peak: Tom Hiddleston Talks Progressing from Romance to Kink, Guillermo del Toro, and More

14 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the many reasons why I’m a fan of Tom Hiddleston is that he’s always a great person to interview. No matter the question or time of day, he’ll always give you an interesting answer and reveal new things about his character without spoiling the film. And he was true to form last year on the set of Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak. I got to visit the set with a few other reporters when the production was filming in Toronto, and during a break in filming, Hiddleston sat down with us for an extended interview. He talked about getting to work with Del Toro, the detailed back stories that were created for all the actors, why he wanted the role when Benedict Cumberbatch dropped out, the relationships between the main characters in the film (played by Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and Charlie Hunnam), progressing from romance to kink, »

New Crimson Peak Pictures Show off the Stunning Allerdale Hall

14 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We already posted the new Crimson Peak trailer and some interviews from Steve's set visit, but we've still got even more content from Guillermo del Toro's upcoming gothic romance to share. Universal just sent over eight new images from the film featuring Mia Wasikowska as Edith Cushing, Tom Hiddleston as her new beau, Thomas Sharpe, and Jessica Chastain as his sister Lucille. I was actually on set with Steve last year and can tell you, between what we saw there and the footage in the new trailer, it's abundantly clear that this is one especially promising film that will likely rock some downright incredible visuals. Check out the new Crimson Peak pictures for yourself below to get a look at the main players and the absolutely stunning Allerdale Hall. The film opens in regular theaters and IMAX on October 16th.

Jessica Chastain thinks dark thoughts, makes beautiful music on the set of 'Crimson Peak'

14 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto, Ontario. Deeply immersed in character, many actors are uncomfortable having even brief conversations when reporters drop by their sets. This goes double or triple when the thespians are playing dark roles, twisty roles, roles that require tapping into wounded places in their psyches. It's mid-March 2014 on the set of Guillermo del Toro's "Crimson Peak" and Jessica Chastain is wrapping a candid conversation with a dozen reporters by giving a concert in her trailer.  The keyboard sitting against one wall in the trailer spawns a question about whether or not Chastain's character, sporting the impeccably Victorian name of Lady Lucille Sharpe, plays the piano, but it's Chastain who volunteers to tickle the synthetic ivories.  "Have you guys heard the lullaby?" Chastain asks without hesitation. We have not, of course. "Crimson Peak" is over a year away from an October 16, 2015 release date and neither images nor a trailer have been released yet. »

Tom Hiddleston teases kink, creepiness and complexity on the set of 'Crimson Peak'

14 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto, Ontario. As you've discovered if you've ever sent out a tweet containing the word "Hiddleston," the "Thor" star and British Shakespeare veteran has a legion of passionate fans. On Guillermo del Toro's upcoming Victorian haunted house drama "Crimson Peak," Hiddleston was a late arrival, stepping in for one of the few actors capable of engendering comparable levels of online hyperventilation, Benedict Cumberbatch. For Hiddleston, there was no hesitation when first his agent, then del Toro, then Jessica Chastain all called to woo him to play Sir Thomas Sharpe, a fading British aristocrat who brings his new American bride Edith (Mia Wasikowska) home to his familial estate as part of an attempt to reboot his fortunes, setting in motion initially creepy and eventually terrifying happenings. "[T]here was no possible way I was going to say no," Hiddleston laughs, sitting in a prop warehouse near the Toronto sound stages housing »

Ghosts, haunted houses and creepy, whispering winds. Everything you’d want in a horror movie.

Legendary and Universal Pictures have released the full-blown trailer for the upcoming supernatural thriller Crimson Peak.

Ghosts are real. That much I know.” You said it sister.

In March, author Stephen King got a first glimpse of the film and went on Twitter with his early reactions.

Crimson Peak electrified me in the same way Sam Rami’s Evil Dead electrified me when I saw it for the first time way back in the day.

10 observations about the gorgeous 'Crimson Peak' trailer

13 May 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first "Crimson Peak" trailer is here! Are you excited? I know I am. In fact, the Guillermo del Toro haunted-house chiller is my most-anticipated horror movie of 2015. Mia Wasikowska. Tom Hiddleston. Jessica Chastain slashing furiously with a bloody knife, in a cage! What's not to love here? Below are 10 pertinent observations about the first trailer (embedded above). 1. Mia Wasikowska's character is the gothic costume drama version of Haley Joel Osment. "Ghosts are real...I've seen them all my life," says the elegant Edith in voiceover. Who will be her Bruce Willis? Who will be her Toni Collette? 2. Jessica Chastain gets to play a chilly (seeming) villainess. We've been waiting for a good, juicy baddie role for the Oscar nominee, and it looks like Guillermo del Toro has finally put her pale, chiseled veneer to good use. 3. Blood coming out a of a bathtub spout just never gets old. »

Guillermo del Toro’s Gothic Haunted House Film, Crimson Peak, Reveals a Helluva Trailer

13 May 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Crimson Peak is pretty high on my list of most anticipated films of the year. This trailer does myself or anyone who has the same feelings any favors. Boasting a quote from Stephen King and featuring one of the creepiest yet most elegant houses I have seen, Crimson Peak makes me wish October was only a month away. Maybe if I’m lucky, it will show at Fantastic Fest.

There is also an International Trailer that is different from the one shown above. Let’s throw that in here as well.

Watch Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska in Chilling New Crimson Peak Trailer—If You Dare!

13 May 2015 12:56 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We officially have goose bumps! In a newly released trailer of the horror flick Crimson Peak, the clip starts out in a dimly lit room with a trembling young girl who fears what may come out of the dark. Mia Wasikowska portrays Edith, who grows up to be an aspiring author, torn between the love of an old friend and the romantic temptation of Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston). As Edith tries to escape the ghosts of her traumatic past, she becomes captive to a house that bleeds the truth.  "You see where I come from, ghosts are not to be taken lightly," the Thor star warns.
