They haven’t appeared on-screen since their 2005 effort Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but now a married couple in real-life, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have squared off in the upcoming drama By The Sea. We’ve just received the first By The Sea trailer, which you can see below.

Set in France during the mid-1970s, Vanessa, a former dancer, and her husband Roland, an American writer, travel the country together. They seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such »

London — France’s Arp Selection and Switzerland’s LookNow! Filmdistribution have acquired local distribution rights to Lars Kraume’s Nazi-hunter drama “The People vs. Fritz Bauer,” which world premieres at the Locarno Film Festival in the Piazza Grande next week.

The film starts in West Germany in 1957. Attorney general Fritz Bauer receives evidence about the whereabouts of Eichmann. The SS lieutenant colonel, responsible for the mass deportation of the Jews, is allegedly hiding in Buenos Aires.

London — World sales company Global Screen has picked up international rights to six-part political thriller “Capital Power.” It is directed by Friedemann Fromm, who won the German Television Award for “The Weissensee Saga.”
The show stars some of Germany’s leading actors, including Anna Loos, who starred in Stefan Ruzowitzky’s “Anatomy,” Thomas Thieme, who was in Oscar-winner “The Lives of Others” and the Oscar-nominated “Downfall,” and Burghart Klaussner, who appeared in the BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated “Good Bye Lenin!,” and the Oscar-nominated “The White Ribbon.”
The show centers on attorney Susanne Kroehmer, who is a candidate for the Conservative Party to become mayor of Berlin. She mounts an underdog campaign against reigning mayor Manfred Degenhardt. Kroehmer lags hopelessly behind in the polls. When someone starts playing dirty tricks on her and a muckraking journalist airs her family’s dirty laundry, Kroehmer and her spin doctor resort to dubious tactics themselves. »

Way back in 2009 at The New York Film Festival, a drool worthy conversation took place between Michael Haneke (who was doing the rounds for "The White Ribbon") and Darren Aronofsky at Lincoln Center. If you weren't there, well, you missed it. Thankfully, the Film Society Of Lincoln Center has gone into the archives to dig up the talk and put it online, and needless to say, this is a must listen for any cinephile. Haneke is in the hot seat for the discussion and fields questions while Aronofsky and others probe the director about "The White Ribbon," in which a series of eerie calamities beset a small German village in the lead up to World War I. Haneke explains why he chose to keep many of the events in the film enigmatic. Read More: Michael Haneke Drops 'Flashmob,' Working On New Film Set In France “I try to construct »

"Downfall" director Oliver Hirschbiegel returns to the setting of his greatest career achievement with the WWII set "13 Minutes." And once again, this is another story that revolves around Hitler, but this time, instead of focusing on the man, the tale revolves around someone else who nearly changed the course of history. Read More: Berlin Review: Oliver Hirschbiegel's '13 Minutes' Explores The Man Who Almost Killed Hitler "13 Minutes" tells the true story of George Elser, played by "The White Ribbon" star Christian Friedel, a mild-mannered carpenter who carried out a bomb plot against Hitler at a Nazi convention in Munich 1939. It's a portrait of a man who was seemingly non-political and explores what drove him to take such drastic action. Premiering at the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year, our critic had mixed feelings, but wrote in her review that as a "high-quality recreation of one of »

Given that flashmobs, by nature of what they are, are designed to surprise, perhaps the unexpected news of writer/director Michael Haneke dropping his long-developed Flashmob is only fitting. The one-time theatrical follow-up to his Best Picture-nominated Amour may be dead, but that doesn't mean the 73-year-old filmmaker isn't cooking up something to replace it. In an interview with Le Parisien, via The Playlist, Haneke revealed he dropped his proposed new movie, about a group of characters who connect through the Internet and an ending event, but he's now researching a France-set movie as a replacement project. Nothing else about this new movie is known. In fact, he even refused to say why he is no longer making his previously-stated next project. But that's not shocking. Haneke isn't really the talkative type, especially on his own projects. As of last year, Flashmob was expected to begin production during the summer, »

Michael Haneke’s next film will no longer be his previously announced project about disparate online characters brought together
When Flashmob was announced, it seemed like an eccentric idea for Michael Haneke to take on. A drama about a group of online characters brought together by a flashmob wasn’t what you’d expect from the director of The White Ribbon and Amour.

Winners were announced on Sunday for the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, and the top prize, the coveted Palme d'Or, went to Jacques Audiard's French film "Dheepan." This is the first time Audiard has won the award following three unsuccessful attempts ("A Self-Made Hero" in 1996, "A Prophet" in 2009 and "Rust and Bone" in 2012), though he did previously win a screenwriting award for "Self-Made Hero" and the Grand Prix for "A Prophet." -Break- His last two entries lost to films by Michael Haneke – "The White Ribbon" in 2009 and "Amour" in 2012 – so in his speech, Audiard thanked Haneke "for not making a film this year."

This year, Oscar-winning directors Joel and Ethan Coen presided over the jury, which also included international actors Rossy de »
At his highly-anticipated talk for the Kering Women In Motion series at the Majestic Hotel, Cannes festival director Thierry Fremaux kicked off proceedings with the statement, “This debate makes me furious.”
He then spent much of his talk bopping back and forth between his view that Cannes gets unfairly criticised for the lack of female filmmakers in the programme, while festivals such as Berlin and Venice avoided such reproach, while also claiming to welcome the discussion that has been sparked around the issue of female inequality.
“Yes, there are discriminations, but these issues are widespread across other cultural industries around the world,” said a disgruntled Fremaux.
“People attack us with extreme aggression, but if there is one place where female directors are welcome, it’s here in Cannes.”
Fremaux cited several factors to support his argument that Cannes supports women, including the fact that juries are, in large part, evenly split between »
