It might be hard to conceive of how a tragic story like Madame Bovary could be turned into a farcical and winning comedy, and yet here we stand. With remarkable tonal control from director Anne Fontaine and a winning pair of performances from Gemma Arterton and Fabrice Luchini, Gemma Bovery somehow manages to be an affecting and hilarious treat. Set in modern day Normandy, »

In life, some things are certain. The earth will spin on its axis, the sun will rise and set, and Robert De Niro’s leading ladies will be at least two decades younger than him. It comes as no surprise, then, to hear the news that Jennifer Aniston has committed to star opposite the Academy Award winning legend, in his long-awaited humorous project, The Comedian – to be directed by Oscar winner Taylor Hackford.
The Comedian seems to have had a particularly long gestation period and was, at one point, going to be directed by Mike Newell. Robert De Niro has remained with the project throughout the development process, however, and that patience is now paying off, with the final pieces of the puzzle falling into place. Written and produced by Art Linson (What Just Happened) – with stand-up material by Jeffrey Ross – The Comedian will feature De Niro in the role »

Brian De Palma has been attached to quite a few promising projects over the years. Most exciting of all, the director was going to reunite with his Scarface and Carlito’s Way star, Al Pacino, for a film about coach Joe Paterno. Whether De Palma is still involved with Happy Valley is unknown, and the same can be said for The Key Man and Heat. But […]

The Final Girls was recently released to theaters and VOD, and is available today on Blu-ray and DVD. For those that are interested in what went on behind-the-scenes, I recently caught up with director Todd Strauss-Schulson to talk about the movie's evolution before he got behind the camera, improv comedy on set, building the camp for the movie, and much more:
Can you talk a little bit about how this script came about, what it took to bring it to the screen and what changes you made?
Todd Strauss-Schulson: I was editing my first movie and thinking about what I would do second. These guys I went to college with, Mark Fortin and Josh Miller, are these really cool writers. They're big horror fans—Mark especially is really deep, deep into horror stuff—and had written a script.
Eight years prior to this, we went to college together in L. »

Paramount will release Academy Award-nominated director Michael Mann’s (Heat, The Insider, Collateral) Enzo Ferrari, starring Academy Award-winner Christian Bale (Dark Knight Trilogy, The Fighter, American Hustle) as Ferrari.
It takes place in one pivotal year, 1957. It is the personal story of a passionate man and his sprawling world, at times hilarious and at the next moment devastating, as he faces a brutal challenge to his survival.
Vendian Entertainment and YooZoo Bliss Film Fund have come on to finance the heavily-anticipated project, which will shoot next summer in Italy. Mann will produce along with Vendian and YooZoo Bliss. YooZoo Pictures also will distribute Enzo Ferrari in China. Vincent Maraval’s Insiders will commence international sales on selected territories at next month’s American Film Market.

Lakeshore Records will release the Brooklyn – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and on CD November 6, 2015. The album features the film’s original score by Michael Brook (The Fighter, Into The Wild).
“The director John Crowley slightly laid down a gauntlet by saying that he wanted to have a score that heightened emotion, but never lead things by telling the audience what to feel, and he was very keen to avoid anything that had the slightest whiff of cheese,” said Brook. “Finding this extremely delicate balance was a big part of the interaction that I had with John.”
Brooklyn tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother’s home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly »

That Loki is impressive as hell. Tom Hiddleston was on "The Graham Norton Show" alongside Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, and Kenneth Branagh -- what a great lineup! -- and the conversation turned to impressions.
Tom Hiddleston stole the show, and started his mimic-fest by doing an impression of Owen Wilson from "Midnight in Paris." Tom said he's been made to do impressions of his "Avengers" co-stars, and admitted a Christopher Walken impression is easy ... but pretty much irresistible, so he did that too. Then he braved a De Niro impression, on the same couch as De Niro.
Tom said he's memorized pages of the "Heat" script and re-enacted a scene, acknowledging that De Niro would be familiar with it, since he was there, shooting the 1995 scene with Al Pacino. It's kind of hilarious to see Tom explain the scene as if he is the expert, but he's self-deprecating about it and it's very charming, »

As any fan is well aware, Tom Hiddleston is great at celebrity impressions. He's so good, in fact, that when prompted to do his Robert De Niro impersonation on The Graham Norton Show, Hiddleston did it . . . with Robert De Niro five feet away. Anne Hathaway and Kenneth Branagh were there too, but that doesn't really matter. He chose a scene from the classic 1995 thriller Heat, and not only does he do his best De Niro, he also impersonates Al Pacino! It's gold, and De Niro's reaction is, well, priceless. »

Tom Hiddleston's best celebrity impressions reign continues.

Perhaps you don't know this about Thor star Tom Hiddleston, but he's great at impersonating fellow celebrities. That should come as no shock after watching him fully transform into country legend Hank Williams in I Saw the Light. If he wasn't busy building a career as an Oscar-worthy actor, he might have a shot at being the next Rich Little. On the The Graham Norton Show he got to show off some of his skills. And he couldn't pass up the opportunity to break out one of his better routines, especially with the subject of his impersonation sitting on the couch beside him.
Tom Hiddleston and Robert De Niro appeared on the The Graham Norton Show couch together earlier this week. And in what could have been an awkward exchange, Tom Hiddleston broke out his own Bobby De Niro facial ticks and accents. And the whole thing is nothing short of amazing. »
At Norton’s behest, Hiddleston showed off his talent for mimicry by impersonating Owen Wilson, Christopher Walken, Al Pacino and De Niro, whom Hiddleston nervously referred to as “the esteemed gentleman at the end of the sofa.”
Hiddleston delivered a spot-on recreation of a scene between Pacino and De Niro from “Heat,” and De Niro seemed to approve of the performance.
“That was great. That was my favorite scene in the movie,” De Niro said.
“It’s an expression of admiration, just to be clear,” Hiddleston said. “I do impressions of people I admire.”
He added, “This is so meta. I feel like I’ve gone into a parallel universe.”
The episode also included Hiddleston’s impression of the host himself, »

You talkin' to me?! Tom Hiddleston is known for his celebrity impressions and took on a bold challenge during his appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Friday: He did his best Robert De Niro...to De Niro's face. The Avengers and Thor hottie, who is promoting his latest film Crimson Peak, re-enacted the iconic restaurant scene from the 1995 crime film Heat, reciting both the actor and co-star Al Pacino's lines. "You know, we are sitting here, you and I, like a couple of regular fellas," he says, mimicking Pacino's raspy voice. "You do what you do, and I do what I gotta do. And now that we've been face to face, if I'm there and I »
Robert De Niro appears to approve of Tom Hiddleston‘s impersonation of him. The “Thor” star, who will next be seen on the big screen in Guillermo del Toro‘s “Crimson Peak,” performed a re-enactment of his favorite scene between De Niro and Al Pacino in Michael Mann‘s 1995 crime drama “Heat” — and played both actors’ parts — while appearing on “The Graham Norton Show.” “It’s an expression of admiration, just to be clear,” Hiddleston said before cracking up the audience with his impressions, which also included Owen Wilson and Christopher Walken.

Whew, what a charmer that Loki is. Tom Hiddleston joined Kenneth Branagh and The Intern co-stars Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro on The Graham Norton Show, which became an opportune moment for the host to ask Hiddleston to bring out his canon of impressions, which include Christopher Walken, Owen Wilson, and, of course, Robert De Niro. Not only does Hiddleston do De Niro, but he reenacts De Niro's coffee-shop scene across from Al Pacino in Michael Mann's Heat. This is definitely why the British are taking all our jobs.And if that weren't enough, he also whips out a Graham Norton impression on the spot. »

Everyone knows Tom Hiddleston does great impressions of people. In one of the coolest things I've seen lately on the Internet. Tom Hiddleston does the "Face 2 Face" scene from 'Heat' and plays both Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. That kind of gave me chills. Talk about having nerves of steel to act out a legendary scene in front of the man himself. Bravo! Here's the original scene from 'Heat' Tom Hiddleston later in the show does a super funny Graham Norton impression as well. So much good Internet today! »

Hispanics in the U.S. go to the movies a lot, but reaching them with anything other than Hollywood blockbusters is a challenge for America’s Latino filmmakers.
Pantelion, a joint venture of Lionsgate and Televisa, and the only major Latino distribution outfit that targets the U.S. market, saw the power of the Hispanic audience in 2013, when its Mexican import “Instructions Not Included,” a family dramedy from Eugenio Derbez, made $44 million domestically. And with a 2014 MPAA report citing Hispanics as 23% more likely to purchase movie tickets than are other ethnic groups, relative to their share of the population, Pantelion is looking to double down in the domestic market, even as distribution startups are hoping for a piece of the action.
While Pantelion has not yet had another success on the level of “Instructions” — the elusive U.S. Latino market is drawn to superhero fare, just like the wider audience »
