Directed by Jalil LespertYves Saint Laurent stars Pierre Niney as the revolutionary designer whose fabulous, jet-set life is marred by nervous breakdowns and drug use. “Genius comes at a price,” the trailer tells us:

'Stage Fright' filmmakers talk Meat Loaf, Minnie Driver, and musical mayhem -- Exclusive Video

48 minutes ago

How gory is the new slasher movie Stage Fright? This gory: During her post-shoot Adr recording session, actress Minnie Driver wouldn’t even watch her own, very early demise. “It was too gruesome for her,” says director Jerome Sable.

So why did Driver agree to appear in the film in the first place? “She had been in The Phantom of the Opera, the film version ,” explains Sable. “So I appealed to her on that level.”

Oh, right. There’s something we forgot to mention about Stage Fright. In addition to being a full-on, blood-soaked horror flick, the film is also a full-fledged, »

Robert Pattinson gets apocalyptic in trailer for 'The Rover' -- Video

1 hour ago

As a keen student of the Mad Max movies, I’m never sure whether the Australian countryside will be the best, or the absolute worst, place to hole up come the inevitable apocalypse. And the trailer for the new, Cannes-selected film The Rover only makes the issue murkier.

Written and directed by David Michôd — the filmmaker responsible for 2010′s wonderful Animal Kingdom – the movie stars Guy Pearce as a loner wandering through the Aussie outback a decade after civilization has collapsed, and Robert Pattinson as a man he forces to help track down the gang who steals his car.

2 hours ago

The 13th Tribeca Film Festival kicked off Wednesday with Nas documentary Time is Illmatic, directed by multimedia artist and first-time director One9.

The film — which premiered at New York’s Beacon Theater — chronicles the rapper’s journey from the Queens projects to the debut of his 1994 record Illmatic, widely considered one of the best rap albums of all time.

“The nature of the subject is about surviving and thriving,” said Tribeca Film Festival co-founder Jane Rosenthal. “That’s what New York did post-9/11,” when Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff held the first Tribeca fest. “And that’s what »

'Cold in July' trailer: Michael C. Hall's in trouble -- Video

21 hours ago

Letting a burglar invade your home may be a whole lot less messy than shooting that burglar in self-defense – at least, that’s the message the new trailer for Cold in July sends.

The movie, made by Jim Mickle and Nick Damici, is adapted from Joe Lansdale ’80s-set novel of the same name about a man who shoots and kills a burglar only for the burglar’s father to come after him for revenge. Michael C. Hall, Don Johnson, and Sam Shepard star in the thriller.

Cold in July will open in select theaters and will be available on VOD »

Tribeca Film Festival: Check out a terrifying still from 'Extraterrestrial' -- Exclusive Image

22 hours ago

There are essentially two kinds of alien movies — the kind in which bicycles are magically transformed into flying machines, and the kind in which people’s insides are rather less magically transformed into lunch.

We haven’t seen the new film Extraterrestrial, which receives its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 18. But judging by both the movie’s official synopsis — “a group’s getaway into the woods dissolves into a full-throttle fight for their lives when unwelcome aliens invade” — and the exclusive still you can see above, we’re going to go ahead and assume this movie »

Tribeca: Between Nas and 'Begin Again,' what are the festival's must-see movies

23 hours ago

The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.

After more than a decade of growth, Tribeca is also entering »

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' final trailer: Wolverine gathers the troops -- Video

16 April 2014 7:20 AM, PDT

The third and final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past has arrived, and it’s Wolverine’s time to shine.

This is The Clawed One’s (Hugh Jackman) call to action, the scenes that find him traveling back in time to confront a despondent Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) to unite two generations of X-Men — those from the original films, and those of X-Men: First Class – to fight a war that threatens the existence of mutants and mankind alike.

That means we get both McAvoy and Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, as well as Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen as Magneto. »

Box office brief: Will Christian audiences turn out for 'Heaven Is for Real'?

15 April 2014 4:22 PM, PDT

It’s no secret that Christian-themed films have the potential to be box office gold, but even though faith-based audiences are starved for more material, it doesn’t always pan out the way studios might hope.

While Paramount’s expensive and provocative Darren Aronofsky-directed Noah continues to climb the steep slope toward domestic profitability and Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s Son of God failed to reach Passion of the Christ heights (after seven weeks in theaters it still hasn’t even made Passion’s opening weekend numbers), the independently released God’s Not Dead came out of nowhere »
