Julie Delpy Enlists French Stars Dany Boon And Karin Viard For ‘Lolo’ (Exclusive)

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– Julie Delpy will return to French filmmaking with “Lolo,” a high-profile satirical comedy starring Dany Boon (“Welcome to the Cht’is”) and Karin Viard (“Polisse”).

Delpy stars as Violette, a 40-year old alluring workaholic with a career in the fashion industry who falls for a provincial computer geek, Jean-Rene (Boon), while on a spa retreat with her best friend (Viard). The promising romance starts to unravel when Jean-René meets Violette’s cherished 20-year old son, Lolo (played by French up-and-comer Vincent Lacoste), and discovers their unusual relationship.

“This film deals with universal themes: We have a relationship between two people who come from opposite worlds but are drawn to each other; and we also touch on – in a humorous way —  the issues that single mothers in their 40’s face when looking for love,” said Michael Gentile, who is producing the movie via his Paris-based outfit The Film. “Lolo” is »

Michael K. Williams Wants to Join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Black Panther

55 minutes ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve been talking about a possible Black Panther movie for quite some time now, but as far as we know, there hasn’t been much movement on the project yet.  However, while discussing his upcoming release, Kill The Messenger, Michael K. Williams expressed interest in taking the role of T’Challa if the movie actually happens. According to Marvel’s character description, Black Panther is a royal descendant of a warrior race who eats a heart-shaped herb to enhance his senses and his physical attributes.  He’s skilled in unarmed combat and uses a hybrid fighting technique that combines acrobatics with animal mimicry.  Hit the jump for more on Williams’ hope to join the McU. When Cinema Blend asked Williams if he’s been approached to suit up for Marvel, he replied: "No not yet.  And I'm saying 'yet' with a lot of emphasis.  But hopefully I'm looking forward »

Oscar Isaac talks Patricia Highsmith thriller and 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

2 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Oscar Isaac is having a pretty good year. The Juilliard-trained actor has been on a bit of a roll since being cast as the lead in Inside Llewyn Davis; the Coen brothers’ ’60s folk noir may not have gotten the awards traction that could have made Isaac’s breakout a truly golden ride, but it’s not like the lack of an Oscar nomination dimmed his prospects either. Not only did he score a choice role opposite Jessica Chastain in director J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, which recently received an awards-season friendly 2014 release date—he was also cast in Star Wars: Episode VII. »

Watch Trailer: Studio Ghibli's Fantastic Fest Winner 'The Tale of Princess Kaguya'

16 minutes ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This visually splendid, hand-drawn folktale retelling features English voice-work from Chloe Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges, Daniel Dae Kim, James Marsden, Oliver Platt, John Cho, George Segal, Dean Cain and Darren Criss. While Ghibli films are best seen in their native language, the voicers do a fine job in this story of a girl the size of a thumb who, raised by a bamboo cutter, blossoms into a coveted princess and must choose a suitable husband. "Kaguya" delicately blends animated whimsy with classical storytelling, returning Takahata to the form of "Grave of the Fireflies" (1988) -- though that's a much more melancholy film. GKIDs distributes the film stateside on October 17. »

Isaac Hempstead Wright, best known for playing Bran Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones, lends his impressive vocal talents to The Boxtrolls, Laika’s stunning 3D stop-motion animated adventure directed by Anthony Stacchi.  Wright voices the character Eggs, an orphaned human boy affectionately raised by a community of quirky, mischievous, fantastical creatures who live beneath the cobblestoned streets of Cheesebridge.  When the villainous Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley) threatens to exterminate all the Boxtrolls, Eggs teams up with his spirited friend Winnie (Elle Fanning) to save his adopted family.  Opening September 26th, the film also stars Tracy Morgan, Simon Pegg and Toni Collette.

37 minutes ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Living in the age of the nerd with boutique labels like the Criterion Collection and Shout Factory, it’s easy to forget how hard it was to seek the weird and offbeat in cinema. In the late eighties and early nineties, a Channel 4 program hosted by Jonathan Ross sought to connect the British viewing public to the stranger artists working in the cinematic medium and now, thanks to the powers of the internet, we can see an episode of “The Incredibly Strange Film Show” about everyone’s favorite transcendental meditator, David Lynch. The nearly-hour-long program features interviews with Lynch himself along with various colleagues and collaborators. It’s a great episode that delves into the entirety of Lynch’s career up until “Twin Peaks”, including some of his short film work and even his comic strip “The Angriest Dog in the World.” Learn what the “Eraserhead” director’s favorite »

Don’t We Want 70s-Style Adult Thrillers Like ‘A Walk Among The Tombstones?’ A Chat With Scott Frank

51 minutes ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Everybody says, bring back those great, gritty 70s adult thrillers. Scott Frank makes one with Liam Neeson in A Walk Among The Tombstones, and not enough people show up to launch it into a franchise. With $13 million in ticket sales so far, it’s $5 million short of what it is needed to trigger more films based on the Matthew Scudder character from Lawrence Block’s mystery novels. I can sit here and wonder if the results would have been better had Universal opened it after Denzel Washington’s turn in The Equalizer this Friday, when appetites will be whetted  for challenging adult films and heroes without capes. Or I can point to the squeamishness of some critics who blasted Frank for faithfully adapting a novel about Scudder’s hunt for two serial killers preying on the girlfriends and daughters of drug dealers. It is hard to pretty that up, but one normally smart, »

First Look: Liam Neeson Goes On the Run in ‘Taken 3′ Aka ‘Tak3n’

Liam Neeson has gone on record saying he “can’t see” making another Taken after Taken 2. But apparently a hefty paycheck has gone a long way toward correcting his vision, because that’s definitely Neeson back in action again in the first images from Taken 3. To be fair, it seems to be the “taken” part […]

From co-writer/director Jack Plotnick, the quirky indie film Space Station 76 tells the story of Omega 76's new assistant captain Jessica Marlowe (Liv Tyler), whose arrival inadvertently creates tension among everyone at the space station.  Jessica’s intelligence and unwavering focus on her work confuses the Captain (Patrick Wilson) and upsets Misty (Marisa Coughlan), especially as it becomes clear that her husband Ted (Matt Bomer) and daughter Sunshine (Kylie Rogers) are finding themselves drawn to Jessica.

Watch: More Julianne Moore In 2 Clips From David Cronenberg's 'Maps To The Stars'

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Despite a strong reception at the Cannes Film Festival – read our B- review here – David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars” will be sitting out this year’s awards season in favor of a release date next year. The long wait, however, isn’t stopping the steady flow of clips being released from the film. Following up yesterday’s Nsfw clip, the two latest clips from Cronenberg’s film also feature Julianne Moore’s Valley Girl-inflected fading movie star, Hanna. First up, via Dazed Digital is a clip that runs a little over a minute long and shows Moore’s character being casually cruel to Mia Wasikowska’s disfigured Pa. The second clip (via HeyUGuys), only forty-five seconds long, finds Moore complaining to her agent on a phone at the Chateau Marmont about the various indignities she faced on her way to meet the middle-of-the-road director Garry Marshall.

Full 'Gone Girl' Track List Revealed

1 hour ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Gone Girl fever is taking over the movie blogosphere as we're all clamoring for another movie to get firmly behind and love and with early reviews somewhat mixed, yet largely positive, it's not easy to tell if David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel will be the film we're looking for, but that doesn't quell my anticipation and I assume if you're reading this post you're equally excited. Today the full track listing for the film's score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross has been revealed (via NINwiki). The duo provided the score for Fincher's The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and now they're back with a score Reznor recently described to The Wall Street Journal saying, "David Fincher said, 'Think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlors'... The way it artificially tries to make you feel like everything's Ok. »
