Image Source: Getty / Jon Kopaloff Robert Pattinson and Fka Twigs have been going strong for three years now, but as of late, the couple have been plagued by split rumors. It all began in July when Howard Stern asked Rob if he and Twigs are still engaged, and he replied, "Yeah, kind of." Shortly after, Rob was spotted having dinner with pal Katy Perry and Twigs was photographed hanging out with French model Brieuc Breitenstein in Spain. While neither Rob nor Twigs has publicly addressed any of the reports, it's also worth noting that the last time these two hit a red carpet together was in February at The Lost City of Z's premiere in London. However, a source recently told People that Rob and Twigs are "definitely still together." We're not entirely sure what is going on here, so we'll let you be the judge. RelatedThe Cutest Pictures »

The cast list for James Gray’s latest, sci-fi adventure, Ad Astra is gathering quite a cast with the announcement of the one and only Donald Sutherland now set to appear alongside Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, and Ruth Negga.
Stepping into an undisclosed role, Sutherland will join the story which centers on space engineer Roy McBride – played by Brad Pitt – taking on a voyage of our solar system to find his father who, 20 years previously, embarked on a one-way mission to Neptune looking for any signs of extra-terrestrial life. His father, a man who is classed as a renegade scientist, seemingly poses a threat to all mankind.
Sutherland, who played the evil President Snow in the Jennifer Lawrence lead Hunger Games adaptations, will soon be appearing on the big screen opposite Helen Mirren in Sony Pictures Classics The Leisure Seeker, »

Ruth Negga has finally booked a movie post Loving. We’ve been waiting for an announcement on a new project for her long before she was Oscar nominated. Basically since Loving premiered to raves for her performance at Cannes in May of last year. It’s a performance we are especially enamored with, hence the impatient anticipation for a new film with her.
Negga is joining Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones and Donald Sutherland in James Gray’s Ad Astra. The long in development project is a sci-fi adventure about a man’s journey across the solar system to find his missing father, a renegade scientist who might be a threat in a futuristic lawless environment. Pitt is the lead and Jones plays his father. Negga’s part is being kept secret which is a good sign since if she was playing the wife/girlfriend they’d be no need for the secrecy. »

Ad Astra is described as an adventure film and will see Brad Pitt as a man journeying across a lawless and unforgiving solar system in order to track down his father (Jones), a scientist who poses a threat to all of mankind. As yet, there’s no details on the role that Negga will play.

After July 2015 and 2016 saw increases from one year to the next, July 2017 took a step back, down 12.2% compared to 2016 with calendar grosses reaching $1.2 billion from 221 films compared to $1.37 billion last July. Leading the way was Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming, which topped all releases bringing in $280 million in July, earning Sony the #1 spot for the month with six films grossing nearly $390 million. Overall, this marks the third month in a row to show a decline compared to 2016 with the summer movie season struggling and showing no sign of improvement in the month of August with the season currently pacing 11% behind 2016. Overall, August is likely to become the sixth month out of the first eight in 2017 to show a decline from one year to the next with 2017 currently -2% behind 2016. Digging deeper into July, we'll start at the top with Spider-Man: Homecoming, which delivered $280 million since its July 7 release. The film is now approaching $300 million domestically, »

Ruth Negga will be reuniting with her World War Z co-star Brad Pitt in James Gray‘s upcoming sci-fi epic, Ad Astra.

By now, Robert Pattinson shouldn't have to prove he can act. Cosmopolis, The Rover, Maps to the Stars and The Lost City of Z – they all show that his brooding Twilight days have passed into teen-movie myth. But if doubters still need proof, check out the Pattinson tour de force in Good Time. The title makes the movie sound like a romp. Instead, it's a hellish ride through a New York night. As directed by the Safdie brothers, Josh and Benny, the movie rips through 100 minutes of screen time like Wile E. »
With Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones already set to star, the sci-fi thriller Ad Astra is filling out its supporting cast, with Oscar-nominated actress Ruth Negga signing on to star. Unfortunately, no details have been given regarding her character yet, and it isn't clear how many more primary roles still need to be filled out for this sci-fi thriller. This film continues the successful partnership between Brad Pitt's production company Plan B and New Regency, who have teamed up on critically-acclaimed films such as The Big Short, Best Picture Winner 12 Years A Slave and director Ryan Coogler's upcoming feature Wrong Answer.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the story centers on one man's journey across the solar system to find his long-missing father, a "renegade scientist who poses a threat to all mankind." The first report on this project back in June revealed that Brad Pitt is playing Roy McBride, »
James Gray’s sci-fi movie Ad Astra is a father-son story about Brad Pitt traveling through space to find his missing dad, a possibly evil scientist played by Tommy Lee Jones. Now, The Hollywood Reporter says that those two old men will be joined by Ruth Negga from Preacher, who has joined the film in some secret role. We don’t know anything about this secret role, but since we also don’t really know if this is a sci-fi movie like Valerian or a sci-fi movie like Interstellar, it’s hard to say if she’ll even be a human or some kind of space creature.

Amazon Studios is really starting to leave its mark on moviemaking in 2017. Just this year, they produced The Lost City Of Z and The Big Sick - and they’re already looking toward the future. Generally speaking, casting a screen legend like Cate Blanchett as another one named Lucille Ball seems like a smart bet.
Deadline broke the news that Amazon Studios has acquired the film rights to Lucy And Desi, a long simmering film production that has Blanchett attached to play Ball, the star of I Love Lucy. The project has long been of interest, not least of all because in addition to its Oscar winning star, it also has a screenplay by another Oscar winner, Aaron Sorkin of The Social Network, Moneyball, and Steve Jobs fame. »
Amazon Studios just landed a major in-development title with the acquisition of Cate Blanchett and Aaron Sorkin’s untitled Lucille Ball biopic drama. The actress has been in talks to star as the “I Love Lucy” comedienne since Variety first broke the casting news in September 2015, but now it appears the project is officially nearing a production start.

Casting is now underway for the actor to play Ball’s husband and screen partner Desi Arnaz. Deadline reports that Javier Bardem is an early contender. Sorkin will be handling screenplay duties and using the memoirs written by the two subjects for inspiration. The couple’s children, Lucie Luckinbill and Desi Arnaz Jr., are involved in the authorized biopic as producers.
The news comes just ahead of a busy fall for both Blanchett and Sorkin. »

Foreplays is a column that explores under-known short films by renowned directors. Peter Nestler's Death and Devil (2009) is available to watch on Mubi from August 2 - September 1, 2017 in most countries around the world as part of the retrospective A Vision of Resistance.Death and Devil (2009) holds a special place in the filmography of Peter Nestler, marking an intriguing crossroads. Nestler’s work is strongly associated with filmmakers including Jean-Marie Straub & Danièle Huillet, Alexander Kluge, and Harun Farocki. Like them, he is primarily concerned with history and politics, intent on unveiling the traces of fascism, documenting the processes of the industrialization of cities, and narrating the conditions and struggles of laborers. But here, Nestler turns his gaze to something more immediately personal: his grandfather, Count Eric von Rosen (1879-1948), a celebrated explorer, ethnographer, and archaeologist. The film seemingly presents itself as a linear biography, giving special importance to an African »
Based on author David Grann’s non-fiction bestseller, The Lost City Of Z is the incredible true story of pioneering British explorer Percy Fawcett, who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century. Starring Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, Sons of Anarchy, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) in the titular role, The Lost City Of Z comes to Est on 17th July and on Blu-ray and DVD on 24th July 2017, through Studiocanal, and we have three copies of the film to give away on Blu-ray.
Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as savages, the determined Percy Fawcett returns time and again to his beloved jungle; discovering evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region in an attempt to prove his case. Supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller – Foxcatcher, High-Rise), son (Tom Holland – The Impossible, Spider-Man: Homecoming, »

Two new theatrical releases took the top two spots on the national home video sales charts the week ended July 30, with one setting a new sales milestone for the fledgling Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc format.
Paramount’s “Ghost in the Shell,” a sci-fi action film starring Scarlett Johansson and based on the Japanese manga of the same name, rode its $41 million domestic box office gross to a No. 2 debut on both Npd VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and Npd’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
The film also generated 11.4% of its total first-week unit sales from Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc, the highest percentage ever for a film that earned more than $5 million in theaters, Paramount says.
Overall, “Ghost” sold 40.8% as many units as 20th Century Fox’s “The Boss Baby,” a computer-animated comedy from DreamWorks Animation that earned more than four times as much ($175 million) at the box »

Last week, rumors were swirling around that the last piece of the major New York Film Festival gala puzzle had been filled, namely that Woody Allen’s new project Wonder Wheel was going to be the Closing Night selection. Well, a few days later, that was confirmed, so the big three titles at Nyff are now set. Allen’s Wonder Wheel joins Opening Night selection Last Flag Flying from Richard Linklater and Centerpiece selection Wonderstruck from Todd Haynes to lead the way. We’ll have a full Nyff slate soon enough, but for the moment, the focus will be on Allen, his film, its Oscar possibilities, and the Closing Night selection historically. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, in terms of this particular festival, getting to be the closer is traditionally a pretty big deal for a flick. Nyff just seems to usually end on a bang. »
