Time and time again the legendary James Bond film franchise has learned to adapt and survive. Survival of the fittest, if you will. Whether the reasons for concern were changes in the actor playing the part, the loss of a producer, turbulent waters for the studio’s finances, changes in screenwriters or the lack of anymore Ian Fleming material upon which new adventures can be penned, the series has always quickly learned to get back on its feet to thrill and amuse audiences the world over. Even within the films themselves, the plots have almost always reflected new geo-political paradigms, as well as cultural morays and trends in pop culture. James Bond is always recognizable, »

Filmmaker Victor Levin’s smartly written feature debut, 5 to 7, is a charming and funny love story about an aspiring young writer (Anton Yelchin) and the beautiful, sophisticated French woman (Bérénice Marlohe) who befriends him on a New York sidewalk. Arielle (Marlohe), who enjoys an open relationship with her husband (Lambert Wilson), invites Brian (Yelchin) to join her in a passionate “cinq-à-sept” affair that he will never forget. The lessons he learns about life and love during their brief but tender courtship change him forever. Glenn Close, Frank Langella and Olivia Thirlby also star. In an exclusive interview, Levin talked about how this was a passion project he’d always wanted to direct, why it’s not a romantic comedy in a traditional sense, how he found the best actors to tell his story, the film’s financing, how his television experience informed his approach, his visual style and the decision to shoot in widescreen, »

Bérénice Marlohe's life completely changed when she landed the part of Sévérine in the last James Bond movie, Skyfall. "It gave me the opportunity to be able to get an agent in Hollywood and to receive scripts and go one auditions," the 35-year-old French actress tells me from her home in Los Angeles. "That was a turning point in my career. I was living in France but I really wanted to do American movies, English movies." Her latest film is 5 to 7, a beautiful love story about an aspiring writer (Star Trek's Anton Yelchin) who falls for a slightly older French woman (Marlohe). But there's a twist—she's not only married with two children, but the whole »
Your parents could be the coolest people on the planet, but for most, they're hugely embarrassing. And so introducing them to a new partner is not only fraught with the hopes that Mom and Dad will like them, but also that Mom and Dad don't say or do anything absolutely mortifying. So you gotta feel for Anton Yelchin in this clip from "5 To 7." Co-starring Bérénice Marlohe, Frank Langella, Glenn Close and Olivia Thirlby, the feature debut from "Mad Men" co-producer and writer Victor Levin follows Brian (Yelchin), an aspiring novelist who has an extramarital cinq-a-sept affair with the beautiful wife of a French diplomat Arielle (Marlohe). In the scene below, Brian brings Arielle to meet his parents at the fancy Bemelmen's Bar in New York City. Arielle is quickly introduced to the charming quirks of Brian's parents, as he tries his best to undo their various faux pas. "5 To 7" opens on April 3rd and hits. »

This weekend, Jason Statham seeks revenge against Vin Diesel and the rest of the gang in "Furious 7," complete with an emotional send-off to Paul Walker; and Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds take on the Austrian government to recover her family's stolen artwork in "Woman in Gold."
Also in theaters this weekend: "5 to 7" stars Anton Yelchin as an aspiring novelist who begins a relationship with a French woman (Bérénice Marlohe), but she's married and they can only meet between the hours of 5 and 7 each evening. "Lambert & Stamp" documents the unlikely partnership between Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert, aspiring filmmakers who became the managers of the rock band "The Who." "Effie Gray" examines the scandalous love triangle between Victorian art critic John Ruskin, his teenage bride Effie Gray (Dakota Fanning), and painter John Everett Millais. »

A naive American starts an affair with a sophisticated Frenchwoman in New York in a sweet take on un liaison that emulates the auteur without totally aping him
Set in a New York where cellphones barely exist, a gentleman wouldn’t be caught dead without a tie at dinner and a would-be author still tacks his rejection letters to the wall (I guess he prints them out first?), 5 to 7 is a full carafe of cliche but nonetheless intoxicating. Young Brian Bloom (Anton Yelchin), winner of the Tobey Maguire lookalike contest, taps out short stories in a Manhattan studio while his parents urge him to go to law school. On one of his many walks around the Upper »

After letting the sky fall when it crum-balled to the tune of a billion dollars at the global box office, Spectre may be the most anticipated James Bond movie since the last one. Daniel Craig's fourth feature as 007 won't arrive in UK cinemas until October, but the response to the teaser trailer released over the weekend has been very positive.
Four is hardly a magic number for Bond actors. Sean Connery's fourth outing was the less-than-stellar Thunderball, Roger Moore's was the all-too-interstellar Moonraker and Pierce Brosnan closed out his four-movie tenure with the infamously poor Die Another Day.
That makes Craig the fourth actor to rack up four turns as Bond, and if you're superstitious about this sort of thing, maybe that's why this looks to be the combo breaker. »
