Frank Marshall will produce again alongside Jeffrey Weiner for Captivate Entertainment. Greengrass, Damon, Greg Goodman and Ben Smith will also produce, while Rouse and Henry Morrison will serve as executive producers.

The 40th annual Toronto International Film Festival will open with Jean-Marc Vallée’s “Demolition,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Naomi Watts. Ridley Scott’s “The Martian,” with Matt Damon, and Michael Moore’s “Where to Invade Next” were among the world premieres unveiled Tuesday during the Festival’s first major announcement.
In addition to more than a dozen Gala titles, more than 30 Special Presentations films were also revealed, with world premieres including Jay Roach’s “Trumbo” and Nicolas Hytner’s “The Lady In The Van.”
With the bulk of Toronto’s slate still under wraps, this first blast reflects the fest’s high-street persona in its mix of awards-season contenders (world-premiering pics alongside Sundance, Cannes and other fest-circuit notables), hot-topic cinema, high-profile Canadian titles, foreign pics likely to connect with North American audiences and star power.

Morgan Neville’s Keith Richards Doc to Premiere on Netflix
“Keith Richards: Under the Influence,” Morgan Neville’s documentary that promises to give an unprecedented look into the sounds and influences of the Rolling Stones legend, will have its worldwide premiere in September on Netflix.
“There’s no one who could bring this unprecedented look into the musical influences of Keith Richards to life as distinctively as Morgan Neville,” said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix veep of original documentary programming. “Our viewers around the world are going to love the rare moments he has captured.”
Neville’s credits also include documentaries on Pearl Jam, Johnny Cash and Ray Charles, but, he said, “if there’s a Mount Rushmore of Rock ’n’ Roll, Keith’s face is surely on it. He has always represented the soul of »

Batman v Superman Will Include This Important Side Villain
The Batman v Superman panel at San Diego Comic-Con, as well as the subsequent trailers, cleared up a lot of the mystery surrounding DC's big-screen hero clash. But one of the few remaining questions that has plagued fans surrounds the identity of Lex Luthor's spectacled associate. We all had our guesses, but Warner Bros. and DC have officially acknowledged the character, and she's someone fans of the canon will recognize. We see her walking the halls of Lexcorp, we see her leading the cold corpse of General Zod (Michael Shannon), and now we have a name: Mercy Graves. The latest installment of DC All Access was a trailer breakdown of the Batman v Superman Comic-Con trailer. Setting aside for a moment the fact that DC is now following in the footsteps of the movie blogosphere, the video included around the 2:20 mark the identity of actress Tao Okamoto. »
Ted Sarandos Defends Adam Sandler-Netflix Deal in Wake of ‘Pixels’ Bow
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos defended the wisdom of his decision to sign Adam Sandler to a multi-picture deal despite the weak domestic box office return of his latest theatrical release, “Pixels.”
Sarandos cited the international strength of the Sony release as a good fit for Netflix’s increasingly international audience in a Q&A session with reporters Tuesday morning at the opening of the Television Critics Assn. press tour at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
“We did our deal with Adam Sandler because he is an enormous international movie star,” he told reporters. “We are as encouraged as ever.”
Sandler’s box office clout came into question again after a weak opening weekend in which “Pixels” collected $24 million in the U.S. and slightly more than that in overseas markets. Marvel’s “Ant-Man” topped “Pixels” to lead the box office.
Nevertheless, Sarandos characterized himself as “thrilled” with »

Christopher Nolan's next film has been revealed (and it's totally unexpected)
The next Christopher Nolan film has been announced - but it's very different from the blockbusters we're used to seeing from him.
Titled Quay, the documentary centres on Stephen and Timothy Quay, as viewers will get an insight into the "inner workings of the brothers' studio".
Netflix Boss Teases Olsen Twins Return to ‘Fuller House’
The twin sisters rose to fame playing Michelle Tanner on the family-favorite ’80s and ’90s sitcom.
Prior to TCA, the duo’s involvement in the revival series was shut down with their rep telling Variety they are focused on their current careers, which includes overseeing their fashion labels.
Also at the time, “Fuller House” exec producer Robert L. Boyett said, “Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of ‘Fuller House,’ I know how much ‘Full House’ has meant to them, and they are still very much considered family. It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, »

Miley Cyrus Copies Kourtney Kardashian's Wild Style! See the Singer's Bizarre Betty Boop Unitard
Miley Cyrus wore a rather flamboyant one piece that seemed pretty unique, but it's actually been done before. As in Kourtney Kardashian did it first! The eldest Kardashian was the first to rock the vintage Versace outfit featuring Betty Boop, Harley Davidson and more. While Kardashian wore the dress version several years ago in Miami, Cyrus took to a whole new level with this unitard which, may even be tighter than Kourtney's body hugging dress. Earlier this year the ex-Disney Channel star accused Justin Bieber of stealing her short bleached blonde hair style, proclaiming, "Bitch stole my look!" Oh, how the tables have turned Miley. Regardless, the »
The Internet Is Banding Together to Take Down the Dentist That Killed Cecil the Lion
Internet, we don't always get along. But the fact that essentially everyone on the Internet who isn't a piece of s--t (and we like to think the majority of you aren't) is banding together to take down the man who murdered a protected lion in Africa is making us so damn happy. Hell hath no fury like someone on the Internet seeking revenge. By now you've seen the story: Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer is being raked across the coals of the Internet for reportedly killing a beloved 13-year-old male lion in Zimbabwe named Cecil. According to the Zimbabwe Conservation Task, Cecil was "lured out of a national park with food, shot with a crossbow, tracked for 40 more hours, then finished off with a »
The creepiest vampire in movie history is getting a modern update
I am not categorically opposed to remakes, though I loathe it when a "perfect" film is cynically exploited just to capitalize on the title. A film like "The Exorcist" should never be remade, for example. Neither should "Alien." I would hope that both of those titles are untouchable, but then again... But sometimes, if there's an interesting take and a talented director attached, a remake can feel almost necessary. Such is the case with this newly-announced update of F.W. Murnau's 1922 silent classic "Nosferatu," which is being helmed by Robert Eggers, who wrote and directed the acclaimed, reportedly terrifying period horror film "The Witch," which netted Eggers the Directing Award in the U.S. Dramatic category at this year's Sundance Film Festival (it's expected to be released sometime this year). Deadline describes the project as a "visceral adaptation" of Murnau's film, which was previously remade by Werner Herzog as "Nosferatu the Vampyre, »

Hillary Clinton Asked "What's the Most Important Part of Life" by Cute Little Boy—See Her Response!
If you want to be president of the United States, you've got to be willing to answer some tough questions—just ask Hillary Clinton! At a recent campaign event in New Hampshire, a charmingly precocious little boy really put the former Secretary of State on the spot, asking, "What do you think is the most important part of life, like out of all the things in life? Such as, health care, um, education, and all that stuff—what do you think is the most important?" Bravo, young man! Clinton herself was impressed. "What a great question," she said, shaking the budding journalist's hand. "I think we have either a future philosopher or a theologian..." But this kid meant »
Harris Wittels' Cause of Death Revealed: Parks and Recreation Producer Died From Accidental Heroin Overdose
Harris Wittels' cause of death has been revealed. According to a coroner's report obtained by E! News, the 30-year-old Parks and Recreation producer died from an accidental heroin overdose, or "acute heroin intoxication," as listed on the docs. The report also details that "drug paraphernalia, including a spoon, syringe cap and remnants of latex balloons were recovered from the scene." Wittels was found dead at his Los Angeles home by his assistant back in February just days before the Parks and Recreation series finale. After news of Wittels' tragic death broke, his celebrity friends mourned his death on social media. "I am at a loss as to what to say about Harris »
Cecil the Lion Allegedly Killed by U.S. Dentist: Celebs React
The Internet is outraged following the death of Cecil the Lion—and many celebrities are now speaking out on social media. Judd Apatow, Mayim Bialik and Olivia Wilde are among the handful of stars who are publicly expressing their anger after the death of the 13-year-old lion, who, according to CNN was allegedly killed in Zimbabwe by a foreign hunter. The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force later identified the hunter as Walter Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, who reportedly paid $55,000 to participate in the hunt. The conservation task force also stated on their Facebook page that Palmer first shot the lion, who was part of an Oxford University research project and wore a Gps collar, with a bow »
Box Office: ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ Tries to Prove Tom Cruise Still a Top Gun
In the fifth installment of the two-decade old series, Cruise clings to the side of an Airbus A400 plane during takeoff, holds his breath under water for six minutes, and rappels down the side of the Vienna Opera House. For part six, he’ll likely have to strap himself to the undercarriage of a ballistic missile and go soaring across the Pyongyang skyline if he wants to top himself.
Despite his willingness to risk doing some damage to that beautiful barrel chest, “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” may struggle to bring in crowds. The action adventure is on pace to open to $40 million, a soft opening considering the franchise’s long history and its hefty $150 million pricetag.
“It seems low to me,” said Eric Handler, an analyst with Mkm Partners. »

Holy Crap, This Is the Most Awkward Cara Delevingne Interview Ever!
Dear Cara Delevingne, we feel for you, especially after the disaster that was your Paper Towns promotional interview on Good Morning Sacramento. The model turned actress was chatting with the morning show's co-hosts via satellite when all hell broke loose the California TV stars grilling the crap out of poor Delevingne for no apparent reason. One newscaster recalled an earlier interview that Delevingne did for a British newspaper, and blurted out midway through the cringe-worthy chat, "You seemed a lot more excited about [the movie] than you do right now? Are you just exhausted?" To be fair, the question came out of nowhere and Delevingne didn't appear to be tired whatsoever, but, she has »
Christopher Nolan’s Next Movie Is Already Done
After rescuing Matthew McConaughey from the universe's most heartwarming black hole, what's Christopher Nolan doing for a follow-up? Directing a short documentary about a pair of avant-garde filmmaker brothers, of course! Actually, scratch the present tense on that — Nolan has already completed his film on the Quay twins, two identical brothers who have been making wordless stop-motion films since the late '70s. Knowing Nolan's obsession with puzzles and miniatures, it seems like a perfect match. The film's called Quay, and it will screen at New York's Film Forum in August — presumably to beat out Legend, the upcoming Tom Hardy movie about phonetically similar but completely unrelated Kray twins.Here is a selection of Quay Brothers films to get you up to speed: »

'The Witch' Won't Open Until 2016, But Its Sundance-Winning Director Has a New Film
The best film I saw at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival was Robert Eggers' "The Witch," a super-stylish, super-scary, witchy brew of madness that bears the mark of a seasoned auteur. It made total sense that the Sundance Dramatic jury, including member Cary Fukunaga, wanted to anoint fledgling Eggers. Now the director has set up an untitled remake of "Nosferatu" under (ex-Warner Bros. chief) Jeff Robinov's budding Studio 8, reports Deadline. "This will be a visceral adaptation of F.W. Murnau's 1922 silent film masterpiece that brings the horrific vampire of Eastern European folklore back to the screen." Jan Van Hoy and Lars Knudsen's Parts and Labor, for whom Eggers is also directing "The Knight," will produce. Here is a remake that could actually work, with Eggers once again burnishing classical horror elements with his modern touch.
