Scream 4‘s Emma Roberts is the latest addition to the cast of American Horror Story: Coven. While character information has been mostly kept a secret, TVLine learned that she’ll be playing Madison, “a self-involved party girl.”
We recently reported that Precious star Gabourey Sidibe will be joining the cast, along with Kathy Bates, who will be a major part of the third season. Angela Bassett and Patti LuPone are also new additions, but we have no details on who they’ll be playing at this time. A number of actors from past seasons will return to play new characters, including Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and Evan Peters. The cast is still coming together, so we’re definitely expecting a few more of the past actors to make an appearance.
Filming of American Horror Story: Coven will take place in New Orleans and multiple unannounced locations. »

Cannes Film Festival 2013 highlight? (Photo: Bérénice Bejo, Tahar Rahim in Asghar Farhadi’s The Past) So far, what’s the most memorable event at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival? Perhaps the screening of Asghar Farhadi’s Palme d’Or competitor The Past, starring The Artist‘s Bérénice Bejo (replacing Marion Cotillard) and A Prophet‘s Tahar Rahim? Variety‘s Justin Chang called Farhadi’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning A Separation "an exquisitely sculpted family melodrama in which the end of a marriage is merely the beginning of something else, an indelible tapestry of carefully engineered revelations and deeper human truths." (Scroll down to check out The Bling Ring cast Cannes 2013 photos.) Or perhaps Joel and Ethan Coen’s Inside Llewyn Davies, which impressed The Independent film critic Geoffrey Macnab with "the sure-footed way the Coens combine comedy, music and brooding film noir elements"? Or maybe the fact that Carey Mulligan had »

The Bling Ring, 2013.
Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the internet to track celebrities' whereabouts in order to rob their homes.
After Sofia Coppola justly earned plaudits for The Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation, a lot of good will remained for the less successful Marie Antoinette and, despite garnering the coveted Golden Lion in Venice, for the frankly mediocre and at times racist Somewhere. That good will may have come to an end.
The Bling Ring tells the true and sorry tale of a group of Hollywood teens eager to purloin the riches of the rich in order to live the Us dream. It all starts with young Mark (Israel Broussard) attending a high school for drop outs, where he is befriended by the »

How much do you really get to know a college from an official tour? The pervading opinion is not a lot. But in new film Middleton, a campus visit leads two starkly different parents to get to know themselves – and each other – as they wander off from the tour group.
Shot in eastern Washington at Gonzaga University and Washington State University, Middleton had its world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival on Friday night. The film, which takes place all in one day at the titular fictional school, stars Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia as the parents who meet on the college tour. »

Deal was announced Saturday at Cannes, where Atlas International is handling international sales.
The movie is directed by Trevor White and written by White and Lane Shadgett. It’s based on a true story of a teenage James Burns (played by Lofranco) who goes from the suburban street gangs to a maximum-security prison, where he forms a friendship with a convicted murderer (portrayed by Rhames) who helps him turn his life around.

Film critics may have wept over her performance in "House of Wax," but Paris Hilton's tears at the Cannes Film Festival came courtesy of Sofia Coppola. The 32 year-old heiress/model/reality TV star/singer/actress/Kim-Kardashian-before-Kim-Kardashian watched a screening of "The Bling Ring," Coppola's true-life tale about the teenaged burglars whose crime spree included a break-in at Hilton's house. She provided her real home as a location for the movie and cameos in it, as well.
"I was really emotional watching it," Hilton told a reporter for Vulture at the after-party. "I literally had tears in my eyes and I wanted to cry. I knew what happened with the burglaries, but I had never actually seen it — so watching it happen, I was like, 'Oh my God, this really happened to me. These kids were really in my house and did this to me.' It's so violating. It »

"The Bling Ring" features unruly teenagers robbing the homes of A-list celebrities, so it's only appropriate that the movie's soundtrack presents a lineup of A-list musical acts to underscore the glamorous film.
Sofia Coppola's highly anticipated feature, based on a string of true-life robberies that took place in the homes of Los Angeles celebs, premiered Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival. The music used throughout comprises a fitting ode to wannabe glamor -- Kanye West's "Power," Sleigh Bells' "Crown on the Ground" and 2 Chainz's "Money Machine" are just a few of the tracks that round out the collection. A track from Coppola's husband's band Phoenix also made the soundtrack's shortlist.
Even more fitting is the song selected to close "The Bling Ring": Frank Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt's collaboration "Super Rich Kids." Part of the song's refrain finds Ocean singing, "The maids come around too much »

Welcome to the first podcast from the 2013 Cannes Film Festival where my guests are Emma and Aurellien from CinemaTeaser.com, Kevin Jagernauth from The Playlist and Mexican reviewer Silvestre Lopez Portillo joins us for the first of two parts to discuss Heli, which was recorded inside the Palais Theatre. The second part was recorded at a cafe outdoors, which ended up being a big mistake as we caught the first windy moments of a storm that was rolling in off the water, resulting in a lot of noise from the wind. If the second part is tolerable, you'll hear us discuss Jeune et Jolie, Fruitvale Station, The Bling Ring, The Past and The Congress. What I hoped to deliver with these was to give you a taste of some of the random conversations we tend to have after seeing the movies as we work out our own thoughts and take in the thoughts of others. »

Catch the third poster for Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, starring Emma Watson, Leslie Mann and Taissa Farmiga. In the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, a group of teenagers take us on a thrilling and disturbing crime-spree in the Hollywood hills. Based on true events, the group, who were fixated on the glamorous life, tracked their celebrity targets online, and stole more than 3 million in luxury goods from their homes. Their victims included Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Rachel Bilson, and the gang became known in the media as “The Bling Ring.” In The Bling Ring, Oscar Winning filmmaker Coppola takes us inside the world of these teens, where their youthful naivete and excitement is amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession. The members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that any teenager would find hard to resist. And what starts out as »
★★☆☆☆ Opening the Un Certain Regard section of the 66th Cannes Film Festival comes Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring (2013), a teen crime movie/wannabe satire based on the true story of a gang of over-privileged kids (with serious entitlement issues) who burgled a succession of Hollywood celebrity abodes several years back. Marc (Israel Broussard) is the new kid at school befriended by über-popular Rebecca (Katie Chang), who has a distinct taste for taking stuff that doesn't belong to her. The pair graduate from boosting the odd misplaced handbag to stealing cars and cleaning out the homes of A-listers when they're off partying.
Over time, Mark and Rebecca assemble a rag-tag group of fashionista 'gangstas', including Nicki (British actress Emma Watson), Chloe (Claire Julien) and Sam (Taissa Farmiga); a pseudo family home-schooled on pseudo philosophy leached from the banal The Secret. Coppola - who won the Golden Lion at Venice a »

Sofia Coppola's intuitive and atmospheric tale of teen burglars who target Hollywood celebrities is an unexpected pleasure
Sofia Coppola is a director who has perplexed and annoyed many with her indulgent portraits of poor little rich-and-famous girls. Personally, I couldn't sit still for her last film, Somewhere, which featured Elle Fanning as the adored and adorable teen daughter of a famous actor dad. Her movies have been in danger of becoming gritless oysters of non-satire, lenient insider studies, offering celluloid hugs to the cossetted comfortable.
But her new film, the opening gala to the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes, is an interesting surprise. There is something in her unjudging approach that is unexpectedly appropriate – and effective. It lets her get up close and personal to the story and characters, which conventional irony (from a director like Larry Clark or a writer like Bret Easton Ellis) wouldn't get near. »

Based on real events and inspired by an article in Vanity Fair, Sofia Coppola’s latest directorial turn concerns itself with those that emulate the kind of characters she has previously devoted whole films to; Dorff’s Johnny Marco in Somewhere, Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette and to a lesser extent Bill Murray’s Bob Harris in Lost in Translation. A fascination with celebrity is something that clearly interests Coppola but her portraits have had little to say in most cases, most notably in the vacuous Somewhere.
So, in focusing instead on the effect that these kinds of lifestyles have on those that covet them and hang on their every designer outfit choice Coppola has found fresh new ground and gone some way to living up to the promise of her first two films. Unfortunately only some way though.
The Bling Ring’s focus is five friends, nicknamed the ‘Bling Ring’ by the media, »

I didn't walk into Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring needing a message movie about today's celebrity obsessed society. We've seen that film and what more is there to say? It's an empty and vapid existence and it's plaguing our society as more and more people are familiar with who a celebrity is dating and "reality" television is dominating the airwaves. It would seem we all want to live any life other than our own, but this has been said time and time again. Yes, The Bling Ring explores this territory too, the hope is there is something that sets it apart. For me, that hope rested on the shoulders of Coppola. I hoped she would bring the same level of enthusiasm in story-telling she brought to Marie Antoinette, bending the story to her taste and personal aesthetic rather than letting the story simply tell itself. What I got was »

The last time Academy Award-winner Sofia Coppola hit up La Croisette to unveil a new work, 2006's "Marie Antoinette," the Hollywood royal child was met with boos. History didn't repeat itself when "The Bling Ring" kicked off the Cannes' Un Certain Regard section this morning after screening to a packed house of press. No surprise really, given that it takes a pretty straightforward approach to telling its true story of teens gone wild. Not being about one of France's most divisive historical figures also no doubt helped. Based on the Vanity Fair article "The Suspects Wore Louboutins," "The Bling Ring" stars Emma Watson (sporting an impeccable Valleyese accent and outfitted skimpy clothing that would make her Harry Potter blush), Taissa Farmiga and a string of newcomers including Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Julien and Georgia Rock, as a group of Southern California high schoolers who infamously stole close to a »

Emma Watson and Sofia Coppola discussed their new film, The Bling Ring, today during a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival. The conference came after a morning photocall and before their big premiere scheduled to take place this evening at the Palais des Festival. The Bling Ring, which is out in the Us on June 14, is based on the true story of a group of fame-obsessed teens who tracked the outings of celebrities - including Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Megan Fox - via social media and then robbed their homes. Emma heads a cast that includes Taissa Farmiga, Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, and Claire Julien. Today, the actors, along with Sofia, touched on the real story and the factors that made it possible for the burglars to locate and steal from the stars. Emma also reflected on what it's like being a woman in the film industry, and »
