After kicking off with such awards season heavies as “Black Swan,” “Gravity” and “Birdman” in recent years, the Venice Film Festival opted for Baltasar Kormákur’s “Everest” to open the 72nd annual festivities this time around.
At first blush, it seemed like a curious choice to me. It’s a great international staging ground for the film, so it made some sense. But even though Venice is certainly not as concerned with being a part of the awards season discussion as other fests, it felt like that spot was recently being groomed for certain kinds of splashes.
That’s just getting lost in the frivolous “meaning” of these things, though. Because at the end of the day, with a stacked cast and plenty of cinematic spectacle to go around, this harrowing account of the 1996 Mount Everest disaster is a perfectly fine way to get things going on the Lido. Not only that, »

Production is shortly to officially begin on the next Jason Bourne movie adventure, that sees Matt Damon returning to play the role for the fourth time. Also returning for the thus-far unnamed Bourne 5 is director Paul Greengrass, who to date has helmed The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum in the series.
Joining Damon in the cast? We already know that Julia Stiles is back for this one, and Alicia Vikander and Tommy Lee Jones have both signed up for duty too. Now Variety reports that Vincent Kassel (Black Swan) has joined the cast too. His exact role isn't yet known, short of the fact that he's going to be play an assassin who's trying to take Jason Bourne out.

The Venice Film Festival’s late-summer scheduling — a fixture since its inception 83 years ago — gives it sprocket-opera status it wouldn’t hold if it swapped places with, say, the Berlinale. (And not just because the skinny sandbar of the Lido is a lot less alluringly balmy in February.) As the American awards season has expanded, in the last couple of decades, into a six-month industry of promotion as restless as the speculation that surrounds it, this most venerably refined of festivals has become its near-accidental starting block.
Expense and distance protect it from the fever-pitch Oscar conversation that intensifies at Telluride and Toronto mere days after Venice raises its curtain, but these aren’t soundproof barriers: In an era when a film’s fate can be sealed on Twitter mere minutes after it first screens, contenders are swiftly anointed and annihilated in the Italian heat.

With production said to be taking place shortly on Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass’ return to the Bourne franchise, the rest of the cast is slowly coming together with Variety reporting that Black Swan and Ocean Twelve’s Vincent Cassel has come onboard for the villain role, playing an assassin on the trail of our favourite kick ass spy who’s not James Bond. Cassell joins the returning Bourne and Julia Stiles, swell as other new comers Alicia Vikander as the female lead and Tommy Lee Jones as high ranking CIA officer. Nothing much is known about this latest instalment of the popular franchise, but we do know we won’t be seeing a crossover between Bourne and Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross from The Bourne Legacy. Whatever it ends up being called, Bourne 5 comes our way July 29th 2016. »

Joining the likes of Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander and, following a brief spell on the sidelines while Legacy was in the ether, Matt Damon, there’s no word yet on who the esteemed French actor will be playing, though his casting is surely a major coup for Universal as it looks to get its Bourne action series back on track.
Throughout his career, Cassel has appeared in a variety of different roles on both sides of the moral compass. Chief among those is his part in the Ocean sequels, along with Darren Aronofsky’s adorned Black Swan. According to today’s report, he’ll be playing an asset, a mysterious figure who is tasked with hunting Damon’s titular agent. Across the course of the series, »

Who knew Mila Kunis was such a die-hard Bachelor fan?! Yes, we have the Black Swan star to thank for this epic photo of husband Ashton Kutcher standing in front of a TV screen for a side by side comparison with Bachelor in Paradise fan-favorite Jared Haibon....even if he was totally baffled as to why he was taking the amazing picture. "I'm trying to figure out why mila is making me take this picture," Kutcher tweeted on Monday night. "@ashleyiaco who are you? And who is this guy?" Clearly, Kutcher doesn't watch Bachelor in Paradise with his wife, because he would know it's because Ashley Iaconetti said Jared looked like a mix of the Two and a Half Men star and Joe Jonas, »
The only person standing in your way is you. With Fantastic Fest coming up very soon, MondoCon will be hosting their 2nd annual expo also in Austin, Texas. One of the big items Mondo will be selling at their own Con this year is a brand new vinyl pressing of Clint Mansell's Black Swan gorgeous score, for Darren Aronofsky's film starring Natalie Portman as a ballerina. The score is actually Mansell's own interpretation of Tchaikovsky's ballet Swan Lake, which is also unfortunately why the Academy decided to disqualify the score from Academy Awards consideration, even though it was clearly one of the best scores that year. Those who are dying to get their hands on vinyl, especially music by Clint Mansell, you won't want to miss this. Here's the artwork by Sam Wolfe Connelly for Clint Mansell's Black Swan vinyl release at MondoCon: Check out this »

Unpaid internships are no fun, but 40 current and previous interns of "Full House" alumni Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are now suing the twins' Dualstar Entertainment Group for wage theft. How rude! (Sorry.)
According to USA Today, the class action suit alleges Dualstar should have paid interns minimum wage because they were doing similar jobs as paid employees without receiving any academic or vocational credit. However, the Olsens have now responded to the lawsuit, via a statement from Dualstar's rep Annett Wolf to USA Today:
As an initial matter, Dualstar is an organization that is committed to treating all individuals fairly and in accordance with all applicable laws. The allegations in the complaint filed against Dualstar are groundless, and Dualstar will vigorously defend itself against plaintiff's claims in court, not before the media. Dualstar is confident that once the true facts of this case are revealed, the lawsuit will be dismissed in its entirety. »

Josh Trank’s debut, Chronicle, was a surprise hit of 2012. The film fused the found-footage genre with superhero tropes to create a coming-of-age story that was both fresh and exciting. Trank’s ability to transcend these tired trends and motifs made him an ideal candidate to finally do justice to the Fantastic Four franchise, one that had an unreleased early 90s film, and two poor mid-00s flicks. However, with production problems between Trank and cast members, and no advanced press screening, many pundits were concerned this would be a mess.
The results are in, and it is not only a poor film, but has been described as the worst reviewed Marvel film to-date. That’s not good. Trank responded openly via tweet to this, noting how Fox had – ah, »

Ballet-themed movies Red Shoes, Black Swan and Center Stage did not hit the mark, says Moira Walley-Beckett, showrunner/Ep of Starz's limited series Flesh And Bone, which follows Claire (Sarah Hay), a young ballet dancer with a distinctly troubled past as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York. "I think this is the first time we've really seen the underbelly of a ballet company,” she said at TCA today. “I feel like a lot of those movies have catered to the… »
