The Tourist (2010)
Historical trends of smoking on screen
The idea of smoking on screen is not new. Even in older films, smoking has been used as a way to portray class in many different ways. For example, you will often see a villain with a cigarette between his teeth, or a rich man smoking a cigar. Both of these are at opposite ends of the spectrum, but both use the same idea. With the emergence of
In the grown-up world of film, a cigarette dangling provocatively from a character’s lips usually suggests either a rebellious or edgy nature or something dark and positively dangerous. So has cigarette smoking had its day on the silver screen? In Face/Off, for example, Nicolas Cage switches from bad guy Castor Troy to

The HFPA is a group of approximately 90 journalists hailing from around the world and now based in Southern California, mostly near Los Angeles and the film industry itself. Though the Golden Globes have risen to become the most highly watched movie awards other than the Oscars, most members of the HFPA are not individually well known — though some of their controversies are.
In 2011, for instance, the
Every year, the Golden Globes endure criticism when it comes to the film comedy category: why even bother breaking the categories into drama and musical/comedy when so many films end up blurring the lines? (This was perhaps most noticeable in 2010 when the Globes nominated “The Tourist,” along with stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, as a comedy.) But this year, they actually chose to do something about it, nominating two genuine musicals (“La La Land
Forbes recently published their list of overpaid actors for 2016 and just like in 2015, Johnny Depp came out on top. With movies like Alice Through the Looking Glass flopping at the box office, the actor managed to only bring in $2.80 for $1 he was paid for starring in the movie. That is an incredibly bad return and says a lot about just how far he has fallen. Even his more recent outings that were well received, like Black Mass, didn't bring in very much at the box office, but he was still paid a hefty sum for his services.
The TriStar film is based on the upcoming memoir “Shoot Like a Girl: One Woman’s Dramatic Fight in Afghanistan and on the Home Front,” which tells the true story of Major Mary Jennings Hagar, who served multiple tours in Afghanistan as a helicopter pilot. The Purple Heart recipient saved hundreds of men and women on and off the battlefield in the Middle East and was later helped eliminate the military’s Ground Combat Exclusion Policy, which kept female officers from serving in combat roles.
The film would mark Jolie’s first action project since “The Tourist” and “Salt” in 2010. She has since toplined Disney’s “Maleficent” and co-starred with ex Brad Pitt in the 2015 drama “By the Sea,” which tanked at the box office.
She is repped by UTA and Media Talent Group.
The 64th San Sebastian Festival (Sept 14-24) is to close with the world premiere of The Odyssey, a film based on the life of Jacques Cousteau, written and directed by Jérôme Salle.
The €35m film looks at the challenging relationship between the underwater exploration pioneer and his son Philippe. The screenplay is based on the books Mon père, le Commandant Jacques-Yves Cousteau, by Jean Michel Cousteau, and Capitaine de la Calypso, by Albert Falco.
Salle is perhaps best known for writing action romance The Tourist, starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, and directing both Cannes 2013 closer Zulu and César-nominated Anthony Zimmer, which starred Sophie Marceau.
The Odyssey stars Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney and Audrey Tautou in the parts of Cousteau, his son Philippe and his wife, respectively.
Wilson’s, known for performances in Xabier Beauvois’ Of Gods and Men and André Téchiné’s Rendez-vous, will make his
A film on the life of deep-sea explorer Jacques Cousteau, structured around his troubled relationship with his son, Philippe, “The Odyssey” charts not only Cousteau’s game-changing discovery of life at the bottom of the ocean, and near unique ability to communicate his excitement to others, but his halting understanding of the importance of his own family. Boasting a stellar French cast, six-time Cesar-nominated Lambert plays Cousteau, Tautou, star of multiple other French films such as “A Very Long Engagement,” limns his wife. Niney, regarded by many as the finest actor of his generation, portrays son Philippe.
