Valentina Cervi to vamp on "True Blood"

True Blood has a new vampire in its midst — and I have a feeling she's going to be very popular.

That tuxedoed Italian beauty is Valentina Cervi, who's joining True Blood in Season 5 as a series regular. According to TV Line, Cervi will play Salome, "an ancient vampire who is a world class seductress and fiercely intelligent." She is also a tiny bit mad. And although she is quite powerful, she is able to hide her abilities when she wants.

If Cervi looks familiar to you, you're probably a fan of foreign language cinema. Her best-known role is as Artemisia Gentileschi, one of the world's first female painters whose work remains well known today, in the controversial French film, Artemisia. (She learned to speak French for the part.)

Americans may recognize her from Jane Campion's Portrait of a Lady, in which she played Pansy Osmond. More recently, she guest

Stills for kitchen sink teen superpower drama Hideaways

Tribeca 2011 marks the world premier of Agnès Merlet's (Dorothy Mills) intriguing looking teen drama about living with powers beyond your control. It sort of reminds me of a kitchen sink Heroes, though I doubt the characters in Merlet's film band together to fight any super villains.

Here's the beef:

The Furlong men all were blessed or cursed with unique abilities. Ten-year-old James Furlong's father was able to shut off all electricity around him when he was scared, and his grandfather went temporarily blind when he thought about sex. James' mother died while giving birth to him, and as he experiments to figure out what his ability is, he unintentionally causes the death of his father and grandmother. Then, when he's sent to a reformatory school and sparks a strange illness that wipes out all the children who bullied him, James flees to a cottage in the woods to live a life of isolation.

Tribeca Film Festival 2011 Announces Slate for Spotlight, Cinemania, Special Screening and Sports Categories

This year’s Tribeca will be running from Wednesday, April 20 to Sunday, May 1, so its close start date means that the lineup of movies are coming in fast. We’ve already gotten the World Narrative and World Documentary categories, and the next batch of movies have just been revealed.

Thanks to Deadline, we now have movies in the Spotlight, Cinemania, Special Screening and Sports categories. The list isn’t half bad; the one I’m looking forward to the most is The Guard, which got very strong reviews at Sundance earlier this year. All the categories seem to have solid picks, and I’d say this is shaping up to be a good year. Tfs will be there (including me!), so many of these movies will have reviews up on the site when the festival runs. Take a look at it below:

Tribe Called Quest Doc & “The Guard” Which Co-Stars Don Cheadle Will Screen At Tribeca Film Fest

Well, congratulations New Yorkers, because you’ll get to see at least 2 films I saw at Sundance in January, when they screen at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival, which just announced the second half of its festival lineup – the Spotlight, Cinemania, and Special Screening sections, most notably.

The films I’m referring to are Michael Rapaport’s Tribe Called Quest documentary, Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest, and The Guard, which Don Cheadle co-stars in, as an FBI agent (or is it CIA).

I’m still planning on going through the full list of entries to spotlight any titles worthy of this website, and I’ll do that in coming days/weeks… definitely before the festival begins next month – a festival I plan to attend, since it’s right in my backyard.

Worth noting is that Rapaport’s doc will be making its New York premiere, the
