Ever since I saw the first clip of Life, I've been overwhelmingly curious about the film. Photojournalist Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson) wants to capture a young, unknown James Dean (Dane DeHaan) on camera for Life magazine, but no one believes that this guy will be a star one day. Of course, we know how the story ends, but the fun is in getting there. The retro vibe reminds me of another DeHaan film, Kill Your Darlings, but, of course, with less murder and no Daniel Radcliffe in sight. As the trailer goes on, James helps Dennis realize that the story he's making really isn't about James; it's about Dennis. (Ah, full circle!) The movie will be released in theaters and on iTunes on Dec. 4. Here's the original trailer: »

"I lose myself in my roles, I don't want to lose myself in all this other stuff!" Time to revisit the past. A brand new official Us trailer has arrived for Anton Corbijn's film Life, a drama starring Robert Pattinson as photographer Dennis Stock, and Dane DeHaan as his subject, soon-to-be-an-icon actor James Dean. The story follows Stock who strikes up a friendship with Dean while photographing him. The travel around the country, and Dean learns what it's like to be famous. I am not a fan of this film at all (my review), the performances aren't even that great; I recommend staying away. But if this captures your interest, enjoy it. Here's the newest Us trailer for Anton Corbijn's Life, originally found via Collider: Corbijn's follow-up to A Most Wanted Man, Life captures the nuances and complexities of the relationship between photographer and subject in a way »

Despite so few films in his résumé before an untimely death, James Dean was immortalized as one of Hollywood’s most iconic actors, and this December will bring another look at a more intimate aspect of his life. As scripted by Luke Davies and directed by Anton Corbijn, Life centers on the relationship between Dean (Dane DeHaan) and Life Magazine‘s Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson), the latter of whom had been tasked with capturing the up-and-coming actor less than a year before his rise to stardom and tragic death.
We said in our review from Berlin, “Corbijn has successfully offset script weaknesses with striking aesthetics in the past, but this time his characteristic visual flair is surprisingly lacking. Conventionally shot — and with props and production design much too pristine to appear genuine — Life has the look of a period piece made for television (in fact, TV series such as Mad »

It seems there is nothing that Rihanna aka RiRi can't do. She's a chart topping pop sensation, Grammy winner, and yes, actress. She counts "Battleship," "This Is The End," and "Annie" among her credits, and she's lined up what might her biggest role, in her biggest movie yet. Rihanna will join Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne in Luc Besson's "Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets." It's an adaptation of the celebrated French sci-fi-turned-series "Valerian," which tells the story of a pair of time- and space-traveling special agents in the 28th century. The project is a massive one, with three different VFX companies hired to do all the digital work, but there's no word yet on Rihanna's role, so we'll just have to wait and see.
