"She has no problem turning on the bitch switch," said Nicolas Winding Refn of Kristin Scott Thomas in Cannes today. No kidding. In the writer-director's ultra-violent Palme d'Or contender "Only God Forgives" (he won Best Director at the festival in 2011), Scott Thomas deviates from the upper crusty roles we're accustomed to seeing her play in films like "The English Patient" and "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen," to deliver a showstopping turn as Crystal, a foul mouthed American matriarch to a drug empire with long blond hair and nails for days. Her scene-stealing performance is the best thing about the film, which unlike Refn's last existential noir "Drive," lacks just that. It's therefore no surprise she courted a ton of attention at the film's press conference. That and its star Ryan Gosling, who delivers a muted (literally) performance as her drug smuggler son, wasn't present, stuck on week three of filming his directorial debut. »

Am I alone in thinking Fox's upcoming new take on "Sleepy Hollow" looks like a helluva lot of fun? Check out these two new promos for the show, and let us know what you think!
"Sleepy Hollow" will air Monday nights on Fox at 9Pm.
What if you suddenly woke up from the throes of death 250 years in the future to find the world is on the brink of destruction, caused by unimaginable events, and you are humanity’s last hope? Welcome to "Sleepy Hollow," the thrilling new mystery-adventure drama from co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek and Transformers franchises, “Fringe”). In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. »

Screenwriters and producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are certainly busy these days; the duo currently have Star Trek Into Darkness in cinemas, with Now You See Me, Ender's Game, All You Need Is Kill and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 all incoming over the next twelve months. However, they're also set to extend their small screen output this fall with the new TV series Sleepy Hollow, and Fox Television has now given us our first look at the upcoming adventure thriller, which you can check out below.
Co-created and executive produced by Kurtzman and Orci, Sleepy Hollow is described as a "modern-day retelling" of Washington Irving's classic 1820 short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The series stars Tom Mision (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) as Ichabod Crane, who wakes up from the throes of death 250 years in the future to find the world on the brink of destruction and »

Egyptian auteur Ibrahim El Batout (“Winter of Discontent”) will this week start shooting Cairo-set action thriller “The Cat,” about human organ trafficking in Egypt, with Amr Waked (“Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”) producing and attached to star.
“Cat” has a topical hook. Egypt’s recent political upheavals have left a law enforcement gap in the country, allowing mob-led organ-trafficking rings to thrive, according to reports.
Also attached to star is Palestinian Mohammad Bakri (“Private”), Egyptian actress-model Sarah Shaheen, and Salah Al Hanafy, who played the sadistic security officer in El Batout’s “Winter of Discontent,” among Egypt’s first post-revolution pics.
“Discontent” will be sold by Canada’s Double Dutch at the Cannes Market.
Like “Winter,” “Cat” is produced by Waked and Al Hanafy’s Zad, which they launched after the 2011 Tahrir Square uprising to make pics depicting Egypt from new, uncensored angles.
Zad has also inked with Gallic producer »

Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

On Monday Fox unveiled their primetime slate for the 2013-2014 television season to the national advertising community during its annual Programming Presentation at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. The network announced 5 new comedies, 4 new dramas, a first event series, and an animated comedy from Seth MacFarlane.
Some of today’s most inventive directors working in film have smoothly segued from motion pictures to series TV and their new shows have found a home at Fox. What caught my attention were the sci-fi, fantasy shows bearing the names of Abrams, Shyamalan, Kurtzman and Orci.
Among the network’s lineup is M. Night Shyamalan’s new event series Wayward Pines. Set to premiere in 2014 and based on the best-selling novel, “Pines,” by Blake Crouch, Wayward Pines is an intense, mind-bending thriller in which nothing is what it seems. Also on the Fox schedule is the »

At today's upfronts, Fox released the trailer for their upcoming supernatural procedural Sleepy Hollow. The show takes the legend of Sleepy Hollow, and blends it with Grimm and National Treasure for an... interesting show. It looks better than the description sounds, but I am going to have to see a few episodes before I am sold. Sleepy Hollow will air Mondays at 9pm this fall on Fox (The Following will take the time slot over when it comes in mid-season). Check out the trailer and official synopsis below.

Lasse Hallström has had a long and storied career as a director, putting together films as well thought-of critically as What.s Eating Gilbert Grape and The Cider House Rules. In recent years, he.s directed titles like Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and this year.s Safe Haven. It is the latter movie the exclusive Blu-ray bonus clip above discusses, with actors Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel talking about working with Hallström and the improvisational processes the director prefers to use in order to keep things real. Safe Haven is based on a Nicholas Sparks novel and follows a young romance under unusual circumstances. After Katie (Hough) shows up in a brand new town, she finds solace in a new community and a young dad named Alex (Duhamel), but she.s certainly hiding something. The film wasn.t released worldwide, but still managed to make a fair »

What’s in a name? I know, a pop culture piece starting with a Shakespeare quote. Get used to it pal. We’re getting highbrow round these parts! But seriously, what is in a name? Specifically the name of a movie?
A good movie title should be your first way in to the film. It should tell you everything you need to know about the film and why you should see it. There are the titular film names like Forrest Gump, Erin Brockovich and Wall-e (God I love that little guy). There are bold broad brushstrokes of titles evoking clear images like Star Wars, Alien and 2001: A Space Odyssey. And there are the ridiculous like Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, or How The West Was Fun.
But you’ll be surprised at how some of the most famous movies of all time were meant to be known by the public as something else entirely… »

Welcome return to commercial form for actor Gerard Butler, but overall audience figures are down thanks to the spring sunshine
The winner: sunshine
The weekend before a big blockbuster is often quiet at the box office, as distributors are reluctant to release a major film, only to see it get clobbered seven days later. Consequently, with the summer blockbuster season officially kicking off this Thursday with Iron Man 3, the market is relatively becalmed. Even so, cinema owners could have done without the spring sunshine that finally arrived across much of the country on Saturday and Sunday, reducing audience numbers especially for matinees and early evening showtimes.
Including Wednesday/Thursday previews totalling £652,000, Olympus Has Fallen opened at the chart summit with £2.25m. Ignoring the previews, top title remains Tom Cruise sci-fi Oblivion, with £1.66m. For Gerard Butler, Olympus represents a welcome return to commercial form after his last film Playing for Keeps »
