While ten feature films may not seem like a big filmography to work with, last year saw Daniel Silva pull together a monster seventeen-minute tribute to director David Fincher just before "Gone Girl" opened. And that didn't even include footage from "Alien 3." While Alexandre Gasulla doesn't break the ten-minute mark with this movie, it's no less impactful for its shorter length. Perhaps it's even a bit more complete by including Fincher's debut feature. Read More: Ranked: The Films of David Fincher So yes, “Se7en,” “The Game,” “Fight Club,” “Panic Room,” “Zodiac,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “The Social Network” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” are also featured in this video tribute which uses a few different musical motifs to highlight Fincher's beautiful and, at times, very bloody work. You probably don't need to be reminded that he's a master at crafting shots, but if you do, »

Kristen Stewart, 'Camp X-Ray' star, to join cast of 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Kristen Stewart to join 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' movie After putting away her Bella Swan wig and red (formerly brown) contact lenses, Kristen Stewart has been making a number of interesting career choices. Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray.

American Ultra stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg will be reunited later this year in another project: Woody Allen's next as yet untitled feature. Bruce Willis is the third cast member whose name has been publicly announced. The source for this information is an "exclusive" report via Deadline.com's Mike Fleming Jr. So far, as Fleming explains in his brief piece, Woody Allen and "his people" haven't confirmed the casting. In other words, things could change in the not-too-distant future. See also: Kristen Stewart Joins Kelly Reichardt Movie Project, also featuring Laura Dern and Michelle Williams. Unsurprisingly, no plot details about the upcoming Woody Allen project have been forthcoming. In fact, one wonders if Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and Bruce Willis – in case they have indeed joined the fold – know what the movie is going to be about. Allen's latest collaborators – Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson – will be producing the film. »

Exclusive: Sony Pictures has set David Koepp to adapt The Themis Files, the debut novel by Sylvain Neuvel that Matt Tolmach and Josh Bratman will produce. It will be published by Ballantine Books. As Sony rights itself after a turbulent end of year, it’s a coup to have an A-lister like Koepp come in as the first writer to turn this large canvas science fiction tale into a potential tent pole. It’s also the second project that came in a flurry of fall acquisitions of new intellectual property, spearheaded by president of production Michael De Luca, that has already drawn strong elements. The other is the Jon Spaihts science fiction script Passengers, which got The Imitation Game‘s Morten Tyldum set to direct and now has Guardians Of The Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt circling as the male lead. De Luca and Lauren Abrahams are overseeing The Themis Files. »

With her personal life in the press as much as her professional roles, Kristen Stewart opened up on Tuesday about how the tabloids have erroneously reported about her acting career.
“It’s funny — you know, you do an interview and someone says, ‘Oh you’ve been working a lot? What are you planning on doing now?’ And you say, ‘Uh, I’m just going to take a second and like do something other than that,'” she told HuffPost Live. “[But suddenly the headline reads] Kristen Stewart Quits Hollywood!””
