YNMS²: Foxcatcher & Gone Girl

19 April 2014 4:13 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Unless you count the Lego Movie's probable Best Animated Feature bid and the Sundance bow of Love is Strange (I'm still hopeful - it's playing Tribeca right now) 2014 hasn't seen much in the way of Oscar contenders just yet. Recent trailers are changing the collective shrug to raised eyebrows - between The Homesman (previously discussed), Jersey Boys (if you're feeling very generous), the Cannes lineup announcement and these two trailers from past nominated directors Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher) and David Fincher (Gone Girl) the body is ready for the first wave of Oscar predictions. We'll manage them before April wraps.

Both of these trailers have been around for a bit and both blissfully play more like teasers despite their length; the job of a trailer is to sell a future ticket, not to make you feel like you've already seen it so you don't need one.  Foxcatcher's traiser was actually »

Who Should Play Garbo and Dietrich?

18 April 2014 6:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

So it looks like indie-minded producer Megan Ellison of Annapurna Pictures, who backed upcoming Cannes entry "Foxcatcher" as well as such Oscar contenders as "The Master," "American Hustle" and "Her," is now developing her first TV series to be sold to the networks.  Set during Hollywood's Golden Age, the drama focuses on Nordic beauties Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich, who were known for their androgynous mystery. “The Swedish Sphinx” and “The Blonde Venus” could be both glamorous and alluring--and get away with wearing pants. Thus, much like one-time roommates Cary Grant and Randolph Scott, rumors swirled surrounded them.  Based at MGM, Greta Garbo ("Grand Hotel," "Ninotchka," "Queen Christina") never starred in a movie with Paramount's reigning diva Dietrich ("Shanghai Express," "Morocco," "Catherine the Great"), and the two so-called studio rivals claimed to have never met. (Back in Europe, they reportedly each enjoyed an affair with elegant aristocrat Mercedes de...

Steve Carell mentors Channing Tatum in this new image from Foxcatcher

17 April 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I.ve been not so patiently awaiting Bennett Miller.s Foxcatcher. What dragged me in? Aside from Miller? Was it Channing Tatum? No. You want to think that. It was actually another turn to drama for Steve Carell that hooked me. I think he can certainly step out away from his comedic roots to make a role like this one believable. I.m sure people though that Jim Carrey wouldn.t make the jump so well, but I think that The Truman Show disproved that theory. All that said, I.m rooting for Carell. »

Foxcatcher will debut at Cannes and might be on a collision course with Oscar

17 April 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

About a month ago, I wrote a piece here that speculated on some of the Academy Award hopefuls that might be debuting at the Cannes Film Festival. Well, the lineup for Cannes has been announced (at least the preliminary list of titles…look for some movies to be added in the coming weeks), and while a few flicks I mentioned in that article like The Homesman, How to Catch a Monster, and Maps to the Stars are set to unspool in France, the film that probably is the most anticipated, especially in terms of awards potential, is Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher. In fact, I’ve listed it as a Best Picture frontrunner in my Oscar predictions, if you haven’t already noticed. In case you’re not up to speed on this movie, it’s obviously directed by Miller based on a script from Dan Futterman and based on a true story. »

Cannes: Looking Past the Hype and Hate (Analysis)

17 April 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice.” Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups.” Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes.” Hou Hsiao Hsien’s “The Assassin.” Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys.” Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight.” Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow.” Stephen Frear’s untitled Lance Armstrong biopic. Thomas Vinterberg’s “Far From the Madding Crowd.” Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Birdman.”

The list of films and filmmakers once rumored to be hot prospects for the Cannes Film Festival, only to be go unmentioned during this morning’s official selection announcement, is, as usual, a long and tantalizing one — so tantalizing, in fact, that some festgoers may find themselves surveying the actual lineup today with a mild sense of deflation, even disappointment. I’ll be the first to admit that those of us fortunate enough to attend film festivals on a regular basis can too often lapse into a posture of whiny, »

Actors Turn Directors for Cannes 2014

17 April 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The U.S. will be represented by two films in the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or competition: Actor Tommy Lee Jones—who co-wrote the screenplay and directs fest select “The Homesman”—will also be acting alongside Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”), Miranda Otto (“Rake”), and William Fichtner (“The Dark Knight”) in this year’s competition. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” featuring a starry cast that includes Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, also made the Cannes competition cut.  The full lineup was announced by Thierry Frémaux in Paris this morning; it’s his seventh year as the festival’s general delegate. Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars,” starring Robert Pattinson—also in another Cannes select with Guy Pearce titled “The Rover”—is also in competition, as is fellow Canadian Atom Egoyan’s thriller “The Captive,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Rosario Dawson. »

Cannes 2014 Line-Up Led By The Rover, Maps To The Stars, Foxcatcher And More

17 April 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cinephiles, rejoice! The Cannes Film Festival has announced its 2014 line-up today and as usual, it’s pretty damn impressive. A lot of the movies announced were already expected to play at the prestigious fest, but there are definitely a few surprises as well.

Leading the way is Nicole Kidman’s Grace of Monaco, which will be the opener. Following that we’ll have David Cronenberg’s promising Maps to the Stars and Animal Kingdom helmer David Michod’s The Rover, two films that I absolutely cannot wait to see. Joining them will be Bennett Miller’s Oscar-hopeful Foxcatcher as well as Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria. The Artist director Michel Hazavanicius will be here too with his new film The Search, and Mike Leigh returns with Mr. Turner. But that only scratches the surface, and there’s still more to come, as next week will see the announcement of the Critics’ Week and Directors’ Fortnight line-ups. »

'American Hustle' Producer Megan Ellison Developing TV Series on Greta Garbo & Marlene Dietrich

17 April 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After making a big splash in the independent film community by personally financing, expertly producing, or generally saving art house driven films like "Killing Them Softly," "The Master," "American Hustle," and the just announced Cannes-inclusion "Foxcatcher," Megan Ellison is taking her first stab at television. Her company, Annapurna Pictures, is developing a TV series based around the lives of Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich, two iconic Old Hollywood actresses whose lives intersected not only with each other but also many important figures of the 1930s and '40s. Angela Robinson ("True Blood") and Alex Kondracke ("The L Word"), both of whom worked on HBO's "Hung," are writing the series with Ellison as executive producer and Annapurna's Stephen Feder overseeing production as well as day-to-day operations.  "We're so excited this project found a home at Annapurna," Robinson and Kondracke told Variety. "We couldn't imagine a better partner than Megan Ellison and the folks at. »

New Trailers and Posters for Foxcatcher, The Rover, and The Captive

17 April 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Earlier today, the lineup for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival was announced, which means that marketing materials are going online, or in the case of Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, back online.  A teaser trailer was released last fall, but then Sony pulled it shortly before announcing that the film would be pushed back to 2014.  Now that the movie is playing in competition at Cannes, the Foxcatcher trailer is back online, and I highly recommend watching it if you haven't already.  There are also new posters and trailers David Michôd’s upcoming thriller The Rover starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and for Atom Egoyan's The Captive starring Ryan Reynolds and Mireille Enos.  Both films look fascinating, and I'm eager to hear the reaction to all of these pictures after they play at Cannes. Hit the jump to check out the trailers and posters.  The Rover opens in New York and L. »

Complete 2014 Cannes Film Festival Lineup

17 April 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This morning the 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup was announced and while at least one Out of Competition title is still to be announced, along with the Critics' Week and Directors' Fortnight lineups, we have a look at what films make up the competition and it's largely a lot of the titles that were rumored heading into today's announcement. Among the competition titles you have Atom Egoyan's Captives, which we'll have to hope is better than Devil's Knot, Bennett Miller's highly anticipated Foxcatcher, Jean-Luc Godard's 3D feature Goodbye To Language, The Homesman from Tommy Lee Jones, Ken Loach's Jimmy's Hall and David Cronengberg's Maps to the Stars. I'm jealous I won't be there to see Xavier Dolan's first time in competition with Mommy, Mike Leigh is again at Cannes with Mr. Turner and Michel Hazanavicius returns to Cannes after The Artist took the fest by storm with The Search. »

“Anyone who makes a film of more than one hour in duration, has the right to submit a film to Cannes… this year we received some 1,800 films in total – all of which were screened,” said Fremaux.

He announced 49 titles in total from 28 countries and hinted a further two or three could be announced ahead of Cannes. [Click here for the full list.]

Fremaux, who tied up the line-up at 1am local time ahead of the announcement, said films were arriving later and later for consideration due to digitisation of filmmaking.

2014 Cannes Film Festival Lineup Announced; Foxcatcher, Maps To The Stars, How To Train Your Dragon 2, and More to Premiere

17 April 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup has been announced, and it has some heavy hitters.  Technically, the biggest is How to Train Your Dragon 2, but Cannes has played host to DreamWorks Animation films in the past in an attempt to give the festival a wider appeal.  Plus, that movie is playing out of competition.  Among the indies, the one I'll be keeping an eye on is Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo.  Other notable contenders include David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars, David Michôd’s The Rover, Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner, Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman, Ryan Gosling's Lost River (formerly titled How to Catch a Monster), Zhang Yimou's Coming Home, and Atom Egoyan's The Captive.
