Watch the first trailer for Todd Haynes’ ‘Carol’

17 August 2015 9:54 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s extremely hard to believe that it’s been eight years since Todd Haynes’ last film I’m Not There was released, which boasted stellar performances from Cate Blanchett, Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, Richard Gere, and many others. But now Haynes is back with a new film, Carol, that has already gained attention this year at the Cannes Film Festival, and today has received its first trailer. Revolving around Carol (Cate Blanchett) and Therese (Rooney Mara) who go from friends to lovers, the film also stars Kyle Chandler, Jake Lacy, and Sarah Paulson. Here’s the synopsis:

Set in 1950s New York, a department-store clerk who dreams of a better life falls for an older, married woman.

Based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith (who has also penned the novel versions of The Talented Mr. Ripley and The Two Faces of January) and adapted for the screen by Phyllis Nagy, »

"Strangers on A Train" Remake Stalled

22 July 2015 1:46 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the more surprising announcements of the year occurred right back in January when it was revealed that the "Gone Girl" team of director David Fincher, screenwriter Gillian Flynn and actor Ben Affleck were coming together again for remake of Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers On A Train".

Itself an adaptation of "The Talented Mr. Ripley" series Patricia Highsmith's novel, the original film followed two strangers - a tennis pro seeking a divorce, and a mentally unstable socialite - who strike up a conversation. Each has someone they want to get out of the way, so the socialite proposes they 'swap murders' and thus the killings could not be traced back to them.

The new take would shift the action to a private plane with Affleck playing a film star in the midst of Oscar campaigning who is given a ride to La on the jet of a wealthy and dangerous stranger. »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ Goes to TV

29 May 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Ripley character created by Patricia Highsmith has been the center of many films. The best-known now is probably The Talented Mr. Ripley, directed by Anthony Minghella with Matt Damon (above) in the lead role. And Rene Clement’s Purple Noon is a standout that should be better known. There are actually five films all told, with five different actors […]

Patricia Highsmith's 'Ripley' Books in Development to Become TV Series

28 May 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara's "Carol" didn't take home the top prize at Cannes, but the lesbian romance was undoubtedly one of the highest-profile films of the festival.  Perhaps it's author Patricia Highsmith's renewed caché that has led to the development on a TV show around her most famous character, the homicidal social chameleon Ripley. The five books about him -- "The Talented Mr. Ripley" (1955), "Ripley Underground" (1970), "Ripley's Game" (1974), "The Boy Who Followed Ripley" (1980) and "Ripley Under Water" (1991) -- will be turned into a TV series. Executive producers are searching for the right creator/director and star before shopping the project around to premium cable networks and streaming services. Ripley has already "starred" in the films "Purple Noon" (1960) and "The Talented Mr. Ripley" (1999). Highsmith's debut novel was "Strangers...

Patricia Highsmith's 'Ripley' Series Will Get Deadly On TV

28 May 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Patricia Highsmith's literary creation Tom Ripley has been featured in five books, and five subsequent movies. Everyone has seen 1999's "The Talented Mr. Ripley," everyone should see 1960's "Purple Noon," while the other films are perhaps less well remembered. Indeed, a decade has passed since Barry Pepper took the title role in "Ripley Under Ground" for Roger Spottiswoode. But the character is coming back to life, in a whole other medium. Read More: 5 Things We Learned From Criterion's Stunning Bly-Ray Of Renee Clement's 'Purple Noon' Starring Alain Delon THR reports that Highsmith's Tom Ripley is headed to TV. The plan by producers Guymon Casady, Ben Forkner, and Philipp Keel is to "expand" on both "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and "Purple Noon," though what that exactly means isn't clear, except that this developing take will probably focus on the younger years of the con artist and killer. »

Patricia Highsmith's Ripley Heads For TV

27 May 2015 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With this year marking the 60th anniversary of Tom Ripley's debut, it seems fitting that a significant new screen project should be in the works. Much filmed already, this time he's heading to television, with Television 360 and Endemol Shine Studios joining forces to adapt all five of Patricia Highsmith's macabre crime novels.Not the alien-fighting kind, Highsmith's Ripley is a con-artist and serial killer, living the high life courtesy of a stolen inheritance, a wealthy father-in-law and a lucrative sideline in art forgery. Suave and sophisticated, he's completely without conscience and can't even remember his bodycount (it's actually a modest ten, with a handful of other deaths indirectly attributable to him). The books he appears in, published between 1955 and 1991, are The Talented Mr. Ripley, Ripley Under Ground, Ripley's Game, The Boy Who Followed Ripley and Ripley Under Water. The first was adapted as Purple Moon with Alain Delon »

Mr. Ripley Is Coming To Television

27 May 2015 6:52 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Television 360, Endemol Shine Studios and publisher Diogenes are all teaming up for a TV series based on novelist Patricia Highsmith's five-book series about the serial killer character Tom Ripley.

Guymon Casady ("Game of Thrones") and Ben Forkner ("The Killing Room") will executive produce and are aiming to get a major filmmaker and actor onboard the project before they shop it around premium cable networks or streaming services.

The plan with the series is to expand and explore the "depth, sophistication and complexity" of the Tom Ripley character. Both the first book "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and the third book "Ripley's Game" have seen two big screen adaptations a piece, whilst the second novel "Ripley Under Ground" was adapted once. Matt Damon, John Malkovich, Dennis Hopper, Barry Pepper and Alain Delon have all previously played the character.

The final two books, "The Boy Who Followed Ripley" and "Ripley Under Water, »

Based on the 1952 autobiographical novel The Price of Salt, by crime writer Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mr. Ripley), the film, to be distributed stateside by The Weinstein Co., stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara as women whose mutual attraction develops into a love affair.

Review: Cate Blanchett masters all the signals for Todd Haynes' 'Carol'

16 May 2015 6:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes — A look across a crowded room. A hand on a shoulder, slightly longer than expected. A conversation of code words. In the McCarthy era, gay men and women were forced to follow societal norms, with even the most "obvious" gays and lesbians trapped in the closet. It is in this context that we are introduced to department store clerk Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara) and her new customer, the somewhat older Ms. Carol Aird (Cate Blanchett) in Todd Haynes' adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith novel, "Carol." It's almost Christmas and Carol is hunting for a specific doll for her young daughter. The store is out of the model she needs. Carol quizzes Therese on what she always wanted to get for Christmas. There are glances, there is light flirting and Carol "mistakenly" leaves her gloves on Therese's counter.   This advance is both forward and subtle, which puzzles Therese, but »

Good Kill's Ethan Hawke and director Andrew Niccol on flying over Afghanistan with a joystick

14 May 2015 3:01 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In 1997, Ethan Hawke – fresh off of Before Sunrise with regular collaborator Richard Linklater – jump-started another decades-spanning (less Earth-bound) relationship with filmmaker Andrew Niccol.

Together with Uma Thurman and Jude Law, the pair made Gattaca, a film that concentrated heavily on the ideas of relentless ambition, the limitations of our own humanity, and the opportunities – or rather shortcuts – that can be unearthed with technology. After eighteen years, Hawke and Niccol return to these themes for this weekend’s Good Kill.

Hawke is once again a pilot, but this time, it’s Afghanistan and not outer space in his sights. Unfortunately, Hawke doesn’t need to pretend to be Jude Law to get ahead, which is always a favourite reoccurring film happenstance of mine (Gattaca, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and all my future screenplays).

In Good Kill, Thomas Egan (Hawke) is a microcosm of the unprecedented situation facing modern drone pilots. Egan »

Cate Blanchett Opens the Closet Door with Lesbian Romance ‘Carol’

12 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s not surprising that “Carol” was locked away in Hollywood’s development closet for 15 years. Based on Patricia Highsmith’s scandalous 1952 novel “The Price of Salt,” Todd Haynes’ latest movie is a double whammy by industry standards: it’s headlined by two women, who fall in love with each other.

The film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, arrives at a pivotal, yet paradoxical, time for female-driven stories. There has been a string of hits this year that celebrate female empowerment — from “Insurgent” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” to “Cinderella,” and the upcoming “Trainwreck,” “Spy” and the final installment of “The Hunger Games.” That said, gender inequality both in front of and behind the camera is a hot-button issue in the global entertainment business.

As one of cinema’s most prominent stars, Blanchett, whose recent roles include the evil stepmother in “Cinderella, »

Jude Law on Books, Dating and Bulking Up for Submarine Thriller 'Black Sea'

11 May 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Time Warner Cable Movies On Demand in support of Indie Film Month. Today's pick, "Black Sea," is available now On Demand. Need help finding a movie to watch? Let TWC find the best fit for your mood here. In 1997, Jude Law was cast as the epitome of male perfection, a tan, toned, bronzed Adonis with an astute mind to match his angular features, in "Gattaca." The science-fiction fable depicts a world of genetically-altered uber-humans and tainted normals (Ethan Hawke plays the normal guy). It thrust Law into the spotlight and onto the covers of myriad magazine. The "The Talented Mr. Ripley" solidified his sex symbol status, as well as his genuine acting chops, earning him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. For almost 20 years, Law has been considered one of the sexiest men alive, a moniker that (unfairly) outshines his acting prowess. »

A Perfect Shot: John Seale on the piano reflection from 'The Talented Mr. Ripley'

7 May 2015 6:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Before Oscar-winning cinematographer John Seale shuffled off to retirement, only to be lured back into the fray by director George Miller for the virtuoso stylings of "Mad Max: Fury Road," he clocked a lot of hours working with filmmaker Anthony Minghella. The two collaborated on three major productions: 1996's "The English Patient," 1999's "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and 2003's "Cold Mountain." The 1999 entry is, full stop, a masterpiece of modern cinema. With shades of latter-day Hitchcock pulsing through a narrative wound uncomfortably tight, "The Talented Mr. Ripley" might be the finest work Minghella, who passed away in 2008, ever committed to the screen. It features more than just evocative, but rather outright palpable atmosphere and a detailed sense of place. Minghella coaxed incredibly layered performances out of actors like Matt Damon, Jude Law (Oscar nominated for his work), Philip Seymour Hoffman, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett and, as ever, told the story visually in captivating ways. »

Time Machine: Paltrow Silvery Oscar Dress at 83rd Academy Awards

1 May 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »
