Cannes 2014 Line-Up Led By The Rover, Maps To The Stars, Foxcatcher And More

17 April 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cinephiles, rejoice! The Cannes Film Festival has announced its 2014 line-up today and as usual, it’s pretty damn impressive. A lot of the movies announced were already expected to play at the prestigious fest, but there are definitely a few surprises as well.

Leading the way is Nicole Kidman’s Grace of Monaco, which will be the opener. Following that we’ll have David Cronenberg’s promising Maps to the Stars and Animal Kingdom helmer David Michod’s The Rover, two films that I absolutely cannot wait to see. Joining them will be Bennett Miller’s Oscar-hopeful Foxcatcher as well as Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria. The Artist director Michel Hazavanicius will be here too with his new film The Search, and Mike Leigh returns with Mr. Turner. But that only scratches the surface, and there’s still more to come, as next week will see the announcement of the Critics’ Week and Directors’ Fortnight line-ups. »

2014 Cannes Film Festival Lineup Announced; Foxcatcher, Maps To The Stars, How To Train Your Dragon 2, and More to Premiere

17 April 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup has been announced, and it has some heavy hitters.  Technically, the biggest is How to Train Your Dragon 2, but Cannes has played host to DreamWorks Animation films in the past in an attempt to give the festival a wider appeal.  Plus, that movie is playing out of competition.  Among the indies, the one I'll be keeping an eye on is Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo.  Other notable contenders include David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars, David Michôd’s The Rover, Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner, Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman, Ryan Gosling's Lost River (formerly titled How to Catch a Monster), Zhang Yimou's Coming Home, and Atom Egoyan's The Captive. Hit the jump to check out the full lineup.  The 2014 Cannes Film Festival runs from May 15 – 25th. Via Vulture. Opener Grace of Monaco, »

17 April 2014 3:51 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This morning Cannes director Thierry Fremaux announced the films which will make up the 67th Cannes Film Festival lineup.

The announcement confirmed that the opening film, Olivier Dahan’s much-anticipated Grace of Monaco, is the only cut of the film, clearing up  previous confusion on the matter. It is a strong opener, and the premiere screening of How to Train Your Dragon 2 to celebrate twenty years of Dreamworks Animation is a crowd-pleasing move certainly however it is the new films from Atom Egoyan, Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh and David Cronenberg which have been warmly welcomed.

Tommy Lee Jones’ second feature film, The Homesman, plays in Compettion, up against the new Dardenne Brothers film, Ken Loach’s Jimmy’s Hall and many more. Every year the lineup is incredibly enticing, there is so much to explore, to anticipate (not least Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River – wisely retitled from »

Cannes Unveils 2014 Official Selection Lineup

17 April 2014 2:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan will duke it out with Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Michel Hazanavicius and the Dardenne brothers for the Palme d’Or at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup this morning in Paris by fest topper Thierry Fremaux.

The wide-ranging competition slate is typically heavy on French filmmakers, with Olivier Assayas’ international co-production “Clouds of Sils Maria” and Bertrand Bonello’s fashion-designer biopic “Saint Laurent” joining Hazanavicius’ “The Search” and Godard’s 3D experiment “Goodbye to Language.” Fremaux noted that Godard, famously a no-show at the 2010 Cannes premiere of his “Film socialisme,” had “promised he’ll be there — which doesn’t mean he will!”

One of the more intriguing developments of this year’s competition is the unusual dominance of Canadian auteurs. »

Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, Kristen Stewart are carpet-bound as Cannes 2014 lineup is revealed

17 April 2014 2:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux sent out mixed messages in his -- very long, as usual -- preamble to announcing this year's Cannes Film Festival lineup. First he mentioned a focus on newer, fresher filmmakers, but mentioned elsewhere that "Cannes is an event for the regulars." Predictably enough, the latter statement turned out to be closer to the truth: of the 18 films competing for this year's Palme d'Or, 13 have been to the dance before. (And of the Competition virgins, Bennett Miller and Xavier Dolan are hardly unknowns.) Early on, meanwhile, Fremaux made the initially bold statement that 15 women were in the Official Selection, promising a bounty of female directors for jury president Jane Campion to consider. It turned out to be a slight manipulation of the truth: several of those women are involved in portmanteau films, while only two of them -- Naomi Kawase and surprise inclusion Alice Rohrwacher »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2010

26 February 2014 2:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 27 Feb 2014 - 05:54

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2010, and another 25 overlooked gems...

By 2010, Hollywood’s obsession with 3D movies was in full swing. James Cameron’s Avatar may have given audiences a taste of what the cutting edge of stereoscope could look like, but it has to be said that the movies ushered into cinemas in its wake were a decidedly mixed bunch. Toy Story 3's 3D was extraordinarily effective, yet Clash Of The Titans looked like a blurry mess. How To Train Your Dragon came to life in its flying sequences, but the less said about the horribly murky Last Airbender, the better.

Unless we’re mistaken, none of the movies on this list were shot or released in 3D, and few of them did particularly stellar business. A few got a certain amount of critical acclaim, »
