‘A Perfect Day’ Teaser: Inside Tim Robbins’ Conflict Zone Comedy (Exclusive)

29 January 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — “Welcome!” a soldier shouts at B (Tim Robbins), Mambru (Benicio del Toro) and interpreter Damir (Fedja Stukac) as their jeep approaches a military checkpoint. “Tell them not to wash the car: We don’t have any money. It’s a joke, tell them,” B urges Damir, who hesitates then does; the soldiers, 30 years younger than B or Mamru, who are grizzled vets, stare back eyes glazed, light automatic weapons in hand.

The scene, typical in its comedy and its realism, is one of seven in the first teaser of Fernando Leon de Aranoa’s awaited “A Perfect Day,” to which Variety has had exclusive international access.

Joining Del Toro and Robbins, Oscar winners for “Traffic” and Mystic River” respectively, are Olga Kurylenko (“To the Wonder,” “Quantum of Solace”), Melanie Thierry (“The Zero Theorem”) and Stukac (“In the Land of Blood and Honey”), who round up a top-notch ensemble cast. »

Penn Is Latest Hollywood Celeb to Take Home French Academy's Honor

28 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young – i.e., media friendly – Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on Feb. 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the teen comedy »

Sean Penn Set to Receive Honorary Cesar Award in France

26 January 2015 11:28 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Sean Penn is set to receive an honorary Cesar award in Paris during the 40th edition of the ceremony on Feb. 20.

“A mythical actor, an activist and an exceptional director, Sean Penn is a unique icon of American cinema. A living legend,” declared the Cesar Academie, France’s equivalent to the Oscars.

Penn has always enjoyed great popularity in France as an actor and a director. Nick Cassavetes’ “She’s So Lovely” earned him a best actor nod in Cannes, and the last film he directed, “Into the Wild,” was an arthouse hit in France. Penn served as president of Cannes Film Festival’s jury in 2008.

The actor, who won two Oscars for his performances in Clint Eastwood’s “Mystic River” and Gus Van Sant’s “Milk,” will next star in “Gunman,” Studiocanal’s high-voltage thriller directed by French helmer Pierre Morel. It will be released in March in the U. »

Review: Clint Eastwood’s ‘American Sniper’ Starring Bradley Cooper & Sienna Miller

16 January 2015 3:10 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The strength of idol worship depends on a denial of the fuller, more human picture, and after a lifetime of icon status, Clint Eastwood has had enough of dodging reality. His directorial efforts may vary in subject matter and time period, but they commit to stripping away public figures and groups to their flawed core, and starting the real story there. It’s what connects recent films like “Mystic River” and this year’s misfire “Jersey Boys,” and it’s what extends most prominently into “American Sniper,” Eastwood’s purest and most involving vehicle of tension in years. In fact, the film is a spiritual sequel to “Flags of Our Fathers,” in that it examines the reasons men enlist and go to war, followed by the untreated costs of returning home afterwards. Bradley Cooper plays Chris Kyle, the ultimate Navy Seal poster boy: as a sniper for over four tours in Iraq, »

Emmy Rossum on Sinking Her Teeth in Early Film Role and ‘Shameless’ Lessons

16 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As wild child Fiona Gallagher on “Shameless,” which returns for its fifth season this month, Emmy Rossum has shown off some serious comedic chops along with dramatic flair. But it was her singing voice that would land her a role in “Songcatcher,” a first mention in Variety — and take her to the Sundance Film Festival.

Did you see this review when it ran?

I remember how excited I was to see my name in Variety. I remember the picture, too, because I don’t remember it having been taken. It was one of those candid moments when I was methoding. I always really liked it because it was taken at a moment when I wasn’t trying to look like anything.

How did you get the part?

I was singing in the Metropolitan Opera children’s chorus, from age 7 to 13. The producers making “Songcatcher” came to the opera to audition young singers. »

What does the DGA announcement mean for Best Director at the Oscars?

13 January 2015 1:11 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

A few short hours ago, the Directors Guild of America announced their nominees, letting us in on the final precursor of the season. All that’s left is Thursday morning’s Academy Award nominations, but the puzzle is almost complete. Today’s announcement from the DGA brought a bit of clarity to some parts of the Best Director race, but the Oscar lineup is far from set, that’s for sure. More so than any other year I can remember, so much is up in the air at the final stretch of this first phase race. It’s exciting, but stressful all the same, at least for this humble prognosticator. A quick mention about this precursor. Normally, it does transition highly towards what the Academy will do, but there’s an exception this year due to scheduling. Oscar ballots had to be in before this Guild announced, so voters were flying blind. »
