Cannes – Marvel Comics changed the face of Hollywood. Can legendary L.A. graphic novel publisher Humanoids now do something of the same for Europe?
Driving into international English-language live-action genre with American or international cast via a three-pic deal with Paris-based Full House, set up by former Wild Bunch and Films Distribution execs, the sweep of its ambition, France’s biggest genre push since Luc Besson, is fast becoming clear.
The slate takes in production pacemakers such as Spain’s Apaches Ent., behind Juan Antonio Bayona’s “The Impossible” and Liam Neeson-starrer “A Monster Calls,” as well as L.A. based Muse, producer of “Spring Breakers” and now “London Fields” with Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
Outside Full House, Humanoids — whose movie production is headed by CEO Fabrice Giger and Pierre Spengler, producer of Ilya Salkind’s “Superman” trilogy, announced April 20 a multipic production deal with China’s Jetavana, »

Floria Sigismondi is perhaps best known for music video work, which has seen her collaborate with musicians and bands like David Bowie, Sigur Ros, Fiona Apple, Leonard Cohen, and more. But in 2010 she unveiled her feature directorial debut, "The Runaways," a somewhat underrated picture about the cult rock 'n roll band anchored by a flamboyant turn by Michael Shannon. Since then, she's had a couple of projects brewing away, but now her next one is set up. Variety reports that Sigismondi will direct an adaptation of Alejandro Jodorosky and Francois Boucq’s comic series "Bouncer." While Jodorowsky is known for his more fantastical work, this is actually a straight up western about the adventures of a gunslinger and saloon bouncer. We're really intrigued to see what the visually stylish Sigismondi can bring the genre. Promising stuff and likely more news on the horizon as this will start production in early »

Cannes doesn’t officially start till tomorrow, but the news is coming in quick and fast already! The first big news to come out of the glitz and glamour is that music video turned feature film director Floria Sigismondi has signed up to direct The Delivery Man.
Sigismondi, known for directing music videos for artists such as Muse, David Bowie and Marilyn Manson, made her feature film debut helming the The Runaways, the 1970s rock band biopic starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning as Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. But Sigismondi will steer very clear from her music background with The Delivery Man.
Adapted from Joe McGinniss Jr’s debut novel, The Delivery Man tells the story of three childhood friends who have been negatively affected by their years growing up Las Vegas. The novel follows Chase, who goes from having a promising art career to becoming a ‘delivery man’ for his escort friend Michele. »

Read More: Watch: Elizabeth Banks Investigates Dakota Fanning in Chilling 'Every Secret Thing' Trailer When Dakota Fanning burst onto the scene at age seven in 2011's "I Am Sam," she already had the poise of a seasoned actress. Though she'd only appeared in small television roles, Fanning gave Sean Penn a run for his money as his astute daughter. (She stole most of their scenes together). For a while, Fanning had a corner on the market playing precocious children in bigger Hollywood productions. Now, with 55 credits to her name, Fanning has transcended that ability. Her recent choices have been decidedly risky: she's played a rape victim ("Hounddog"), delinquent teens ("Night Moves" and "The Runaways), and now a pregnant young woman alongside Richard Gere in "Franny," which recently premiered at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival. We caught up with Fanning to discuss her Hollywood childhood, her commitment to strong roles, »

Kristen Stewart turns 25 this week, and she's built up quite a résumé for such a young star - did you even remember that she was a child star? She had an early breakout role in Panic Room, turned into a megastar after Twilight, and proved to be an onscreen badass thanks to movies like Snow White and the Huntsman and The Runaways. To honor her birthday, take a look back at pictures of all the different roles she's played over the years. »
Kristen Stewart has come a long way since she appeared alongside Jodie Foster in 2002's "Panic Room." The actress not only went on to star in the mega-successful "Twilight" saga, she also took on a slew of indies like "The Runaways" and "Still Alice" along the way. Stewart even recently became the first American actress to win a Cesar Award (the Cesars are the French equivalent to the Oscars, by the way) for her work in "Clouds of Sils Maria." Kristen turns 25 on April 9, and for this week's #Tbt we're looking back at pics of her life through the years in the spotlight...

In just a few weeks the multiplexes will give way to the big, brash Summer blockbusters. Too late for last year’s Oscars (in the Us at least) is this historical true-life romantic drama, which, oddly enough, shares several figures and settings from one of last year’s award nominees. Mr. Turner told the story of one of the nineteenth century’s most celebrated painters. Many of that film’s scenes were set at the prestigious Royal Academy of Art, where the merits of different works were vigorously debated. One of the strongest voices was that of John Ruskin, fellow artist, historian, and critic. Now comes the story that didn’t make it into the Timothy Spall biopic, a scandalous tale concerning the marriage of Mr. Ruskin and the much younger Effie Gray.
At the film opens, the narration tells us of the courtship of now nineteen year-old Effie (Dakota Fanning »
