6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Haugesund, Norway– European powerhouse Studiocanal will roll into Toronto with a glam slate of cast-driven, English-language titles led by Luca Guadagnino’s sexy psychological thriller “A Bigger Splash” (Working Title)  and Max Joseph’s coming-of-age drama “We Are Your Friends.”

Wes Bentley has joined Zac Efron and Emily Ratajkowski (“Gone Girl”) in “We Are Your Friends,” a chronicle of a 23-year-old aspiring DJ who tries to find his voice in the electro music scene and bonds with an older DJ. Working Title is producing the film, which is shooting.

Meanwhile, “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson has joined the cast of “A Bigger Splash,” an edgy and contempo twist on the cult Alain Delon-Romy Schneider starrer  “La Piscine.” Johnson will play opposite Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Margot Robbie and Matthias Schoenaerts.

“Splash” centers on a glamorous couple whose holiday in Southern Italy takes an unexpected turn with »

Off the Carpet: Eastwood crashes the season as Telluride gears up for another edition

18 August 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been an interesting run of films for director Clint Eastwood in the 10 years since his "Million Dollar Baby" crashed the 2004 Oscar party and ran away with the gold. I say "interesting" because, at least in awards season terms, it's been a run particularly notable for lots of revving but nothing that ever materialized as a significant player. Right after "Baby" it was the one-two punch of "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters from Iwo Jima" in 2006, a bold play for the then-75-year-old filmmaker. While developing an adaptation of John Bradley's book for the former, Eastwood felt a perspective from the Japanese side of the WWII equation was warranted, so he quickly developed the latter. And it was "Letters" that felt like it had more on its mind, yielding surprise (for some) nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, as well an Oscar for Best Sound Editing. »

Tiff 2014: First Trailer for Susanne Bier's 'A Second Chance' Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

22 July 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A new film from Susanne Bier is always something to look forward to, but it's a little surprising the film chosen to have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival is A Second Chance (En chance til) and not Serena as this is now Bier's second film to be released since Serena (which stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper) completed filming. Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau ("Game of Thrones") and Ulrich Thomsen, Second Chance asks How far are decent human beings willing to go, when tragedy blurs the line between just and unjustc Written by Bier's frequent screenwriting collaborator, Anders Thomas Jensen (In a Better World), this drama is about how easily we lose our grasp on justice when confronted with the unthinkable, and life as we know it hangs by a thread. Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen co-star. Check out the trailer below. sb id="963485" height »

Here's What Happens When Katniss and Hermione Vie For Your Attention

8 July 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Charlize Theron, Emma Watson, and a rather tan Jennifer Lawrence all showed up for the Christian Dior Haute Couture runway show at the Musée Rodin in Paris on Monday. The ladies sat front row with Dior CEO Sidney Toledano to take in the Fall 2014 collection and later joined the brand's creative director, Raf Simons, to pose for photos and give their congratulations; actresses Marion Cotillard and Zhang Ziyi also popped up backstage to share their excitement after watching the show. While Charlize arrived on the arm of her boyfriend, Sean Penn - and looked as stunning as ever in a sparkly minidress - we couldn't help but geek out a bit over Jennifer and Emma posing for pictures together in their color-coordinated Dior ensembles. Jennifer pulled some of her signature goofball moves when she playfully tried to cover Emma's face from the cameras; looks like Katniss and Hermione won't be »

Cooper and Miller Reunite for 'Chef'

18 June 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys hits theaters this Friday and yet the 84-year-old filmmaker has already completed filming on his next project, American Sniper, the autobiography of Navy Seal Chris Kyle starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller. Now Cooper and Miller are preparing to reteam for Chef for director John Wells (August: Osage County) with a screenplay by Steven Knight (Locke, Eastern Promises). The film centers on a Parisian chef (Cooper) who loses his job and relocates to London, where he starts building a team to create the greatest restaurant of all time. Omar Sy (Intouchables) co-stars. I just wonder if they'll stick with that title after Jon Favreau's Chef, which was well received and hit theaters only this year. Miller will next be seen in Foxcatcher later this year, followed by Black Mass and Ben Wheatley's High Rise. Cooper has Guardians of the Galaxy on the way, »

Cooper And Miller Reunite For A New Film Called Chef

17 June 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Having just finished shooting Clint Eastwood's American Sniper, Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller have immediately signed up to work together again. They're both joining the Weinstein Company's Chef, along with Omar Sy.Not to be confused with this year's feelgood Jon Favreau movie of the same name, this Chef's director is John Wells (August: Osage County), who's working from a screenplay by Steven Knight (Locke, Hummingbird, Eastern Promises). The cursory plot details available so far give us a chef (surprise!) who loses his job in Paris and relocates to London, where he starts building a team to create the greatest restaurant of all time. We imagine that, given the warm welcome that Favreau's film received, this film might change title on the way to our screens.The busy Miller also has Scott Cooper's Whitey Bulger biopic Black Mass coming up, along with Ben Wheatley's High Rise. »

'Alice in Wonderland 2' Adds Rhys Ifans as the Mad Hatter's Father

29 May 2014 6:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Alice in Wonderland sequel Through the Looking Glass has brought on Rhys Ifans to play Zanik Hightopp, the father of Johnny Depp's The Mad Hatter. Rhys Ifans is actually four years younger than Johnny Depp, although their ages do not matter much since both actors will be covered in makeup and prosthetics.

Last month, Mark Rylance was in negotiations to play Zanik Hightopp, described as having brightly-colored hair like his son which cannot be contained under a top hat, but a deal was never reached. Rhys Ifans joins a cast that includes Alice in Wonderland stars Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen, with Sacha Baron Cohen joining the cast as a villain named Time.

James Bobin (Muppets Most Wanted) is directing from a screenplay by Linda Woolverton (Alice in Wonderland), with Joe Roth producing. It isn't »

2015 Oscar Predictions: 28 Early Contenders for Best Actress

2 May 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It just might be Amy Adams year, but then again being an Oscar favorite this early makes for a very hard road ahead, especially when your film doesn't hit theaters until Christmas Day. Such is just the case for Tim Burton's Big Eyes, which Adams leads, playing painter Margaret Keane in the story focuses on her success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband (Christoph Waltz), who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s after much of her artwork was originally sold under his name... Thus begins our first look at the Best Actress race for the 2015 Oscars. Yes, Adams sits atop my field of 28 early contenders, a list that is certainly too long at this point and is certain to change as category fraud will likely play a role and fresh faces will soon emerge, perhaps as soon as within the »

2014 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Main Competition, Un Certain Regard & Special Screenings

16 April 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With only hours ago before the official selection for the Main Competition is announced, we’ve narrowed our final predictions to the following titles that we’re crystal-balling as the films that will be included on Thierry Fremaux’s highly anticipated list. Despite an obvious drought of Asian auteurs (we’re thinking the rumored frontrunner Takashi Miike won’t be included in tomorrow’s list) who’s to say there won’t be some definite surprises, like Jia Zhang-ke’s A Touch of Sin last year.

Several hopefuls appear not to be ready in time, including Malick, Hsou-hsien, Cristi Puiu, and Innarritu, to name a few. But there does appear to be a high quantity of exciting titles from some of cinema’s leading auteurs. We’re still a bit tentative about whether Xavier Dolan’s latest, Mommy, will get a main competition slot—instead, we’re predicting another surprise, »

15 April 2014 7:51 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Australia hasn.t had a film selected for official competition at the Cannes Film Festival or the Un Certain Regard sidebar since 2011 and in the Directors. Fortnight section since 2009.

But the prospects are looking brighter this year. According to If.s straw poll among industry figures, David Michôd.s The Rover, Rolf de Heer.s Charlie.s Country and Zak Hilditch.s These Final Hours are promising candidates for one or more of the festival.s competitive sections.

The official competition line-up for the 67th Cannes festival and Un Certain Regard will be unveiled on Thursday night local time by fest director Thierry Frémaux.

Baz Luhrmann.s The Great Gatsby was the opening night film in Cannes last year, out of competition. Julia Leigh.s Sleeping Beauty was the last Australian film to screen in competition in 2011, the same year that Ivan Sen.s Toomelah was invited to Un Certain Regard. »

Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique Could Get Her Own ‘X-Men’ Spinoff

10 April 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anything Wolverine can do, Mystique can do better?

Following her increased role in “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” X-Men franchise producers said that Jennifer Lawrence’s shapeshifter could star in her own spinoff.

“I love what Jen Lawrence has done with her, and I feel like because she is in such a crowded ensemble, there’s so much more opportunity if you were to follow her solo,” “X-Men: First Class” writer-producer Simon Kinberg told Entertainment Weekly in this week’s issue.

Rebecca Romijn played the older version of the naked blue mutant in previous “X-Men” films.

Aside from a solo film with Mystique, Lauren Shuler Donner, who produced every “X-Men” movie, told EW that Gambit and Deadpool are also worthy of standalone movies.

“There was a regime (at the studio) that didn’t see the worth in (spinoffs), and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it and we »

8 April 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Susanne Bier doesn't stop. Already in post-production on "A Second Chance" starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (first look here), and with "Serena" forever dangling over her head as that completed but still somewhat shelved Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Lawrence joint, the director is already plowing ahead on new a movie, one that is aiming to shoot this fall, with a pretty big star attached. Screen Daily reports that two-time Oscar winner Cate Blachett is in talks to star in "The Dig." Penned by Moira Buffini ("Tamara Drewe," "Byzantium") and based on the novel by John Preston, the story follows amateur archaeologist Edith Pretty, who with the onset of World War II, leads a team in excavating the English site of Sutton Hoo, a cemetery site from the 6th and 7th century, with untold artifacts inside, including a full-blown ship used in a burial. The film is said to be in the vein of "The Remains Of The Day, »

The Hunger Games star left her bow, arrow, and Oscar award at home as she served as one of 11 bridesmaids during the event, looking stunning in an ivory-colored J.Crew gown. Despite the rainy weather, which Carson described as "crazy, epic, and very wet," Jennifer looked every bit as glowing as the bride as she posed for photos with her brother.

Although films like Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” and David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars” look like Cannes shoo-ins, the festival’s 2014 lineup is still very much a work in progress. That hasn’t stopped Variety’s top film critics from naming what they’d like to see included when the official selection is announced April 17.

When people talk of ambition in Hollywood, they usually mean big budgets and visual effects, but what impresses me about Anderson is his ability to render cinematic the most challenging of subjects — from Scientology to, in this case, a Thomas Pynchon novel.

It takes the Swedish master so long to make his meticulously composed absurdist satires that there have only been two in my lifetime: “Songs From the Second Floor” and “You, the Living. »

Jennifer Lawrence And Bradley Cooper Reunite In New 'Serena' Images

31 March 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's pretty hard to argue against the success that Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have had together. The acting duo first came together as an odd-ball romantic pairing in David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook (a performance that won Lawrence the Best Actress Oscar at the Academy Awards), but just last year they reunited when Russell hired them to play characters on opposite sides of the same story in the period comedic thriller American Hustle. That's two films in two years, but perhaps what's most amazing is that a third is already on the way. Director Sussane Bier's dark drama Serena will once again bring Cooper and Lawrence back together on screen, and while we still don't know exactly when we will get to see the movie, at the very least today The Film Stage has delivered a while bunch of new stills. Admittedly these perhaps aren't the most »
