15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kevin Smith’s horror comedy-drama “Tusk,” Michael Winterbottom’s hot commodity “The Face of an Angel,” and doc-comedy “The Yes Men Are Revolting” are among the titles set to world preem at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival, which unveiled its auteur-driven Midnight Madness, Masters, Tiff Docs and Vanguard slates this morning.

Midnight Madness, a reliably lively zone for genre-pic launches and pickups, opens with Japanese helmer Sion Sono’s “Tokyo Tribe,” an adaptation of a popular hip-hop-inspired manga comic. The pic receives its international preem, as does Mark Hartley’s “Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films” (Drafthouse), the second documentary this year about the rise and fall of that filmmaking empire, after the Cannes-premiered “The Go-Go Boys.”

Iggy Azalea Will Be in Fast & Furious 7

3 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Fast & Furious just got fancier: In an interview with Skyrock FM Tuesday, Vin Diesel let slip that reigning song of summer champion Iggy Azalea had been given a small part in Fast & Furious 7, following in the footsteps of her “Black Widow” collaborator Rita Ora, who had a small role in the previous installment. The news came up when Diesel was asked whether he would rather dance to Jason Derulo’s “Wiggle,” Azalea’s “Fancy” or Ariana Grande’s “Problem” to which he responded: “Well, Iggy Azalea, I just worked with her two weeks ago. I guess you’ll be the first person that knows this — we casted her in Fast & Furious 7. She has a cameo in Fast & Furious 7.” Looks like all that time spent in the fast lane (from L.A. to Tokyo) paid off. »

Jack White Displayed Emotion During a Baseball Game Again

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's time for part two of our ongoing feature Jack White Displays Emotion at Major League Baseball Games, and today's emotion is: happy! The Detroit-born rock star threw out the first pitch at a Tigers game today, and he looked like he was having a ball (okay, well, up until the part where he actually threw the ball and then he got sad again, but he clearly just suffers from a particularly aggressive form of bitchy resting face). We can't wait for next week, when footage leaks of White looking confused while trying to eat a stadium hotdog. »

‘Maleficent’ Holds Strongly at Japan Box Office

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tokyo – In its fourth week on release “Maleficent” became the first foreign live-action pic to pass the JPY4 billion ($39.5 million) milestone at the Japanese box office.

Following the July 26-27 weekend, the film’s cume amounted to JPY4.03 billion, good enough for second place after Toho’s release of “Godzilla.” 

Opening on 649 screens on July 5, “Maleficent” far exceeded initial box office expectations and will almost certainly become the first foreign live-action movie to surpass $50 million since “Les Miserables” in 2012. It is expected to finish near the $60 million mark. 

Meanwhile, “Godzilla” earned $6.7 million on 460,000 admissions for the three days following its July 25 release on 427 screens. The picture is looking to beat the $54 million Japanese B.O. of the widely derided 1998 Roland Emmerich take on the iconic Japanese monster franchise.

2 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Billy Bob Thornton is looking for another television project. While the actor is up for an Emmy for his work in Fargo, he won't be returning for the second season. "It was such a thrill to do the show," Thornton told me earlier this week at the Emmy Awards Performers Peer Group Celebration at the Montage Beverly Hills hotel. "I have nothing to complain about. Hopefully, another one that good will come along." When I asked on what series would he like to be a guest star, Thornton smiled, "Saved by the Bell is not on anymore, so I think I missed my chance." We die. "There's so much good stuff on TV," he said. "Maybe I can play what's his name? »

The Longest Week Trailer: Jason Bateman and Billy Crudup Fight Over Olivia Wilde

2 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Here's a trailer for The Longest Week, starring Jason Bateman as a wealthy, aimless heir named Conrad Valmont who is forced to move in with his equally wealthy best friend Dylan (Billy Crudup) after his parents cut him off. They do fancy best friend stuff like play squash and wear bow-ties, until Conrad decides to mess it all up by falling in love with Dylan's girlfriend (Olivia Wilde). We know that matters of the heart are painful no matter how many vintage convertibles you own, but it's still pretty hard to feel bad for either of these dudes (as Jenny Slate's character puts it: "How am I supposed to care about a group of over-privileged affluent types who go gallivanting around without any sort of a moral compass?") Still, we'll give it the benefit of the doubt, mainly because Jenny Slate is in it. She's delightful! »
