Kristen Stewart, Catherine Deneuve make César Award history (photo: Kristen Stewart in 'Clouds of Sils Maria,' with Juliette Binoche) Kristen Stewart and Catherine Deneuve are two 2015 César Award nominees making history.

Kristen Stewart is in the running in the Best Supporting Actress category for Clouds of Sils Maria / Sils Maria. Catherine Deneuve has been shortlisted as Best Actress for In the Courtyard / Dans la cour. So, how are Stewart and Deneuve making César history? Well, let's begin with "the expected one": Deneuve. Catherine Deneuve One of the biggest film icons ever, Catherine Deneuve is one of those relatively rare international film superstars who has never bothered with – or needed – a Hollywood career. Deneuve, who turned 71 last October 22, has been »

A group of high-school kids find a prototype time machine in their basement, and use it to tweak events gone by. What could possibly go wrong?
In Hollywood, there’s the myth of the elevator pitch. A writer or producer corners a studio exec in a lift and wallops him with an idea so succinct and so perfect they’ve inked a deal before the doors reopen. I bet Project Almanac sold before they passed the mezzanine. “Well, Mr Paramount Pictures, my idea is: Chronicle meets a time machine. Yes, I’ll take a cheque.”
Chronicle, if your memory of recent teen-centric sci-fi fare is rusty, was a 2012 “found footage” movie about three kids who develop superhero powers. It had some added twists, such as good special effects, better-than-expected performances from then-lesser knowns like Dane DeHaan and Michael B Jordan, and the slow realisation it was a supervillain’s origin story. »

We’ve known about the Fantastic Four reboot for quite some time, but that hasn’t stopped it being a mysterious project which, until this week, we knew next to nothing about.
We knew that the cast, director and groundwork of the original 2005 film, and its 2007 sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer, had been firmly thrown out in favour of a new visual look, some reimagining of the source material and an altogether more modern take on the Marvel comics property. Beyond that, many facets of the film remained a mystery.
Yet the reveal of the new trailer finally gave us a few more specifics. And here's what we know so far...

The BAFTA Awards Rising Star honor is the one award the British public gets to vote on and in the nine years it's been handed out, their choices have, at times, been surprising. Well, at least to those of us on this side of the Atlantic. Previous winners include familiar faces such as James McAvoy, Eva Green, Kristen Stewart, Shia Labeouf and Tom Hardy. The last three winners might not be so recognizable. Three years ago British actor and rapper Adam Deacon defeated Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Chris O'Dowd and Eddie Redmayne. Juno Temple won over Elizabeth Olsen, among others, in 2013. And last February found Will Poulter defeating Dane DeHaan, Lupita Nyong'o and Léa Seydoux. BAFTA announced this year's class a day earlier than the rest of its nominees and, frankly, it's the most competitive group of nominees the category has seen in some time. Without further ado, the 2015 Rising Star Award nominees are… »

A new year of films may beckon, but there are lots of movies from 2014 you may have missed. Here's a list of 2014's most underappreciated...
There was no shortage of magnificent films in 2014 of every kind, from the expensive and explosive to the low-key and experimental. But it's a sad fact of life that not all movies do as well as they should, either because of poor distribution or simply because they'd been released at the same time as something much bigger and more star-laden.
While the list below is by no means an exhaustive one - there are plenty of great films from 2014 that we're still getting around to seeing - it's our attempt to highlight a few fine pieces of work that didn't get quite as much love as they deserved.
So without further ado - and in no particular order - we'll start with a stunning »
UK cinema in 2015 has plenty to recommend it. Here are 36 UK films of all genres to look forward to this year…
Dig past the litterfall of Kray Brothers biopics and tales of nubile teens on camping trips gone wrong, and you’ll unearth plenty for the UK film industry to boast about in 2015. From sci-fi romps and thrillers like Robot Overlords and Ex Machina to dramas like High-Rise, comedies like War On Everyone, spy flicks like Spectre and kids’ films like Bill, there’s no shortage of inventive, highly promising cinema coming from these isles.
We’ve included a few choice co-productions in 2015’s pick of the year’s most interesting-looking pictures, which bolsters our list in both size and breadth (and mostly means we Brits can claim partial credit for ace-sounding dystopian flick The Lobster).
In alphabetical order then, here are the 36 UK (or UK-ish) movies we’re excited about seeing this year… »
A new casting call suggests that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is back on - possibly before Sinister Six happens...
It's proving just a little bit tricky keeping up with Sony's plans for the Spider-Man movie universe. Appreciating that the waters have been muddied by the release of lots of stolen emails that have revealed all sorts of internal discussion over the future of the Spider-Man series (and we're not going there), the plan post-The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was to kickstart a Spider-Man movie universe.
Had The Amazing Spider-Man 2 been better received, then The Amazing Spider-Man 3 would be in production by now. However, whilst Sony considers just where to take the faltering movie franchise next, it seemed that Drew Goddard's Sinister Six film had made it to the front of the queue, with strong rumours suggesting that it'd introduce a new Spider-Man (replacing Andrew Garfield), and reboot the series again. »
There.s been an ongoing debate of whether or not The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is actually going to happen. Between talks of Marvel Studios taking over the character and potentially ditching Andrew Garfield as lead, and Sony struggling to revive the franchise after not performing as well as they hoped on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, there hasn.t been a clear cut answer on what.s happening with the film. That is until now. A recent casting call for extras proves that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is definitely happening. Bill Beckman Casting just sent out a casting call looking for male and female extras of all ages and ethnicities, ages 18-65, and it gives us some more information on the film then we.ve gotten before. First off, it confirms that Sony is the studio producing. It also lists the starring actors as Andrew Garfield and Dane DeHaan with the description, »
Prior to the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony had slotted in release dates for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 in 2018. However, in the wake of the disappointing reception and box office returns for Marc Webb’s sequel, the decision was made to push the third movie back to 2018, with The Sinister Six filling the gap with a November 2016 date.
However, as we saw during the Sony hack, the studio’s plans for the Spider-Man franchise seem to be completely up in the air at present, with various discussions taking place concerning the possibility of bringing Spidey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Captain America: Civil War, or taking the character in a new direction with yet another reboot.
Well, it seems that Sony may have decided how to take the series forward, as a casting call has emerged over at Bill Beckman Casting (via »

We heard about the casting call for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 a short time ago. But looking back over the casting call, Andrew Garfield and Dane Dehaan are listed as main characters. You can see the casting call at the link down below, and see for yourself. Casting Call: http://bacasting.com/casting/e/index.php?id=62 /> I have no idea what this means for a possible deal with Marvel. Up until now, we were led to believe that there would be a deal with Marvel, and a reboot of the character. With this news, it appears as if they will either: A.) Blend the McU and Tasm franchise universes into one. B.) Keep them separate. Whichever side you're on, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this issue down below. »
