‘Maps to the Stars’ Acquired by Focus World for 2015 Release (Exclusive)

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

After winning the best actress award in Cannes for “Maps to the Stars,” Julianne Moore was considered a strong bet in this year’s Oscar race for her turn as a washed-up star in the David Cronenberg drama. But the overdue actress, who has been nominated for four Academy Awards without winning, could be sitting out of awards season.

In a deal that closed last week, Focus World picked up U.S. distribution rights to the Cronenberg drama from Canadian outfit Entertainment One (eOne), sources tell Variety exclusively. “Maps to the Stars” won’t premiere stateside until early 2015.

Focus World is the alternative distribution division of Focus Features, and it hasn’t been decided if the drama will be released on VOD, play in theaters domestically or some combination thereof. “Maps” could get an Oscar qualifying theatrical release at the end of 2014, so that it would at least be eligible for Academy Awards nominations, »

Review: Garfield and Shannon spark in broad brush moral crisis drama '99 Homes'

28 August 2014 8:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice — The title treatment for Ramin Bahrani's Venice Competition entry consists of blood red letters on black. Filling the entire screen with blocky all-caps letters and numbers dozens of feet high, we read: 99 Homes. It looks more like the title treatment for a horror than a drama digging into a moral morass of foreclosure, subsistence level employment, and better paid but more spiritually costly work. As it turns out, it is also a horror movie of sorts. The first shot of the film itself is even a post-mortem scene, as Michael Shannon's predatory realtor Rick Carver -- and how's that for a horror movie name? -- gazes almost impassively at blood dribbling down tacky pink bathroom tiles. The contrast couldn't be more stark: Shannon in an off-white blazer so sharp it hurts (costume design by Meghan Kasperlik is on point throughout), gold watch glinting and not a hair »

Berenice Bejo Dwells on the Past; Replaces Binoche on Corbet’s “The Childhood of the Leader”

20 August 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Sometimes life doesn’t play out like in the movies, or rather, sometimes the movies don’t play out like in real life. Actor-director Brady Corbet can fondly look back at Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria as proof (he plays an author courting the A-lister) that Juliette Binoche was his first choice, but due to scheduling conflicts, a Cosmopolis-like reunion between the actress and Robert Pattinson will have no longer be the case. Variety reports that the matriarch role now goes to Berenice Bejo, the Oscar nominated actress who saw her last film (by hubby Michel Hazanavicius) get panned in Cannes, will next be featured alongside Melanie Laurent and Audrey Tautou in Tran Anh Hung’s Eternity. The Childhood of the Leader is now set for a November shoot in Budapest.

New UK trailer for David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars

11 August 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new UK trailer has been released for Maps to the Stars, the new film directed by David Cronenberg (The Fly, Crash), which has been getting some very good reviews on the festival circuit this year.

Maps marks the first time that director Cronenberg has filmed in Los Angeles, and also marks his first film in two years, since 2012 Cosmopolis. The film stars Robert Pattinson (The Rover), co-stars with the likes of Julianne Moore (The Kids Are Alright), John Cusack (High Fidelity), Mia Wasikowska (Tracks), Sarah Gadon (Enemy), Olivia Williams (Sabotage) and Carrie Fisher (Star Wars).

Here’s the official synopsis:

Led by the loathsome yet funny and touching child-star Benjie, we witness the convoluted world of shallow, selfish celebrities and their minions, all of whom are about to be manipulated and destroyed by the young woman who literally represents the fruit of their twisted machinations, Agatha, Benjie’s tormented, »

David Cronenberg Finds Hollywood in 'Maps to the Stars' UK Trailer

11 August 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After debuting at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, director David Cronenberg's latest film Maps to the Stars is headed to theaters in the United Kingdom this fall, and that means we get a new official trailer from across the pond while we wait to see when the film might end up hitting the big screen in the United States. The film shows the lives of several people in Hollywood as only a director like Cronenberg can deliver, complete with a diverse cast that includes John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska and more. There seems to be some great performances, but of course it's bizarre. Watch! Here's the new UK trailer for David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars from YouTube: Maps to the Stars is directed by David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, The Fly, Eastern Promises, Cosmopolis), from a screenplay by Bruce Wagner (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3). The »

Maps To The Stars UK Trailer: David Cronenberg Points To Betrayal

11 August 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

With David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars preparing to launch in UK cinemas on September 26, a new (safe for work) trailer has been prepared. It's very similar to the red-band trailer that came out earlier this year, before the film debuted at Cannes. Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, and Robert Pattinson star; Bruce Wagner wrote the screenplay. Our own Jason Gorber saw Maps to the Stars at Cannes and was not impressed: For the second film in a row, David Cronenberg has made a stinker. Yes, there were some bits in Cosmopolis that didn't suck, but it was hardly vintage DC. As I mentioned in my review for that other Robert Pattinson-in-a-limo movie, my biggest disappointment of late isn't that Cronenberg is trying new things...

Robert Pattinson reunites with Cronenberg in new Maps to the Stars trailer

11 August 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The UK trailer for Maps to the Stars has been released.

David Cronenberg's multi-stranded Hollywood satire follows a mysterious, celebrity-obsessed young woman (Mia Wasikowska), who comes to Los Angeles and takes a job working for neurotic actress Havana (Julianne Moore).

The two women's stories intertwine with that of a Justin Bieber-esque tween star named Benjie (Evan Bird), his overbearing manager mother (Olivia Williams), and his father (John Cusack).

Robert Pattinson reunites with Cronenberg following his starring role in Cosmopolis, playing chauffeur and aspiring actor-screenwriter Jerome.

Maps to the Stars, which is written by Bruce Wagner, premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Maps to the Stars is released in the UK on September 26. »

Week in Review: Is Studio Ghibli closing?

1 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Could the magic that has come from films like Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies be coming to an end? Thompson on Hollywood is reporting that Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli may be closing its doors because the cost of making hand-drawn animated films with the attention to detail they include might just be too cost prohibitive to continue.

Their source is a Japanese website that explains that the studio is considering becoming little more than a copyright management company, free of the obligation of actually making movies.

Toh! points out that Ghibli continues to experience high costs because they refuse to export their labor out to cheaper companies in pursuit of greater quality.

Robert Pattinson to star in Harmony Korine gangster film

30 July 2014 7:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Pattinson is to star in a gangster film by Harmony Korine.

The Twilight star has revealed that he cold-called the Spring Breakers director to ask about working with him.

"I never went to acting school, so this is just me trying to get better," he told Esquire.

"I've literally only done jobs which interest me. There have been two which I auditioned for and didn't get, but other than that..."

He added that he has turned down a couple of big franchise offers, wanting to avoid them after experiencing the success and demands of the Twilight Saga.

Pattinson will also be joining writer/director/actor Brady Corbet (Mysterious Skin) for the period drama Childhood of a Leader, about a future dictator growing up in the 1930s.

The actor has more recently starred in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis and Maps to the Stars and David Michôd's The Rover.

Harmony Korine Is Writing A Gangster Pic To Star Robert Pattinson

30 July 2014 6:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Twilight, Robert Pattinson has set about creating a truly intriguing filmography for a star his age. Already, the talented actor has worked with two extremely talented directors, David Cronenberg and David Michôd, on three thought-provoking films (Cosmopolis and Maps to the Stars with Cronenberg, and The Rover with Michôd). Next up, he’ll appear in films by Werner Herzog (Queen of the Desert), Anton Corbijn (Life), Olivier Assayas (Idol’s Eye), Brady Corbet (The Childhood of a Leader) and James Marsh (Hold on to Me).

Now, we’re hearing that Pattinson has added another appealing provocateur to his list of future projects – the star will be teaming with Spring Breakers writer-director Harmony Korine for a Miami-set gangster movie. Details are sparse, but Korine mentioned in 2013 that he was working on a “Southern Gothic crime family picture,” which is likely also his Pattinson collaboration.

Apparently, Pattinson’s collaboration with »

Syfy’s 12 Monkeys TV show reveals core cast

29 July 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Emily Hampshire and Tom Noonan will star in the TV adaptation of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys…

With Fargo proving that it’s possible to make great television out of excellent films (as we discussed previously), there are now plenty of other big-to-small-screen transitions on the way.

Of particular interest to the geeky-minded will be Syfy’s 13-episode televisual version of Terry Gilliam’s mercilessly mind-bending surreal sci-fi flick 12 Monkeys, which has now found itself a cast.

Cole, Bruce Willis’ time-travelling mental patient in the film, will be played on telly by Aaron Stanford, perhaps best recognised as Pyro from X-Men 2 and X-Men: The Last Stand, although he's also held roles in the 2006 version of The Hills Have Eyes and TV's Nikita.

Villain-duties will be handled by one of our very favourite actors, the hugely experienced Tom Noonan, who you might recognise from Heat, Last Action Hero or RoboCop 2, amongst others. »

The Big G returns in Godzilla.

Godzilla, the Big G himself, returns to stomp on big cities and kick the ass of any other super-sized baddies that may be hanging around in the 2014 science fiction action thriller Godzilla.

In this latest film featuring the overgrown, nuclear halitosis-challenged lizard, Godzilla  (who’s been doing what he does since his 1954 self-titled Japanese debut)  rises from the depths to do battle with a pair of malevolent creatures that, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten the planet’s very existence. The larger-than-life battle takes him to the U.S. mainland this time around, specifically San Francisco.
