Icon of Cool Charlotte Rampling Talks '45 Years,' Sculpting Her Acting Muscles, and Working with Woody Allen

9 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The longer you talk to Charlotte Rampling, the more you are drawn into her hooded eyes, her laid back insouciance, her mature strength. This is a woman who has lived. I want to read her memoir. Based in Paris, she's worked in English with Sidney Lumet ("The Verdict"), Alan Parker ("Angel Heart"), Woody Allen ("Stardust Memories") and Lars von Trier ("Melancholia"), French with Francois Ozon (Cesar-nominated "Under the Sand" and "Swimming Pool") and Italian with directors Luchino Visconti ("The Damned") and Lilliana Cavani ("The Night Porter"). Over the course of the year "45 Years" (Sundance Selects, December 23) has been blazing a festival trail from Berlin (where Courtenay and Rampling won Best Actor and Actress) to Telluride and Toronto. Haigh adapted "45 Years" from a short story by poet David Constantine, which anticipates the anniversary of Geoff and Kate’s seemingly long and »

Kirsten Dunst on Fargo and the Possibility of an Interview With a Vampire Reunion Tour

16 November 2015 8:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Kirsten Dunst has been something of a shape-shifter in Hollywood in the past few years, appearing in fewer projects, but far more ambitious ones, from her turn as the profoundly depressed Justine in Melancholia to ensemble roles in divisive indies Bachelorette and On the Road, and now as Peggy, a frustrated small-town hairdresser with a secret, in the second season of the critically acclaimed Fargo. While she seems a far cry from Spiderman's Mary Jane, it's only because she's grown far more selective with the years.  Vulture spoke to Dunst over the phone about getting the part on Fargo, Peggy Blomquist's current state of mind, and why films like Interview With a Vampire are an endangered species in Hollywood.How soon did you wrap shooting for Fargo? Was it a pretty quick turnover?We wrapped in May, but still it's the fastest turnaround of anything I've ever done. With »

First Image & Poster From Jeff Nichols’ ‘Midnight Special’ With Michael Shannon, Kirsten Dunst, and Joel Edgerton

13 November 2015 4:25 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Once set for a Thanksgiving release, Jeff NicholsMud follow-up, the sci-fi adventure Midnight Special, was moved to March, presumably to avoid the certain genre competition in The Hunger Games and Star Wars. Strangely though, Warner Bros. dated it for March 18th, 2016, a mere week before their little Batman v Superman film will tear up the box-office.

Since no one has seen it yet — the cast has spilled that it’s likely to stop by Berlin and SXSW — we won’t jump to conclusions, but considering it’s the studio debut by Nichols, we’re quite looking forward to. Ahead of likely trailer by year’s end, the first image has now landed courtesy of EW. Ahead of that, though, we have an exclusive synopsis if you missed it:

‘Fargo’ Season 2: Kirsten Dunst Talks Going From Film to TV

12 October 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Kirsten Dunst has only dabbled in TV in the past. There was a recurring role on “ER” here, a TV movie like “The Devil’s Arithmetic” there; but nothing on the scope of committing to a starring role in a 10-episode limited series like FX’s “Fargo.”

So what drew the star of movies ranging from “Spider-Man” to “Melancholia” to the small screen? The vision of showrunner Noah Hawley, whose Emmy-winning first season proved that the idea of using the Coen brothers’ celebrated 1996 movie “Fargo” as inspiration for an anthology drama wasn’t as crazy as it sounded.

The new season is a prequel to the first and set in 1979. Dunst plays Peggy Blomquist, a small town hairdresser in the Midwest with Hollywood dreams, opposite an all-new cast including Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Jean Smart and Jesse Plemons. Variety spoke with Dunst about what drew her to the series, the »

19 Oscar-worthy sci-fi movie performances

9 September 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A genre constantly overlooked at awards ceremonies, sci-fi cinema is full of stunning performances - like these...

Should we care whether the Academy likes science fiction or not? Does it matter that the genre and its best performances are regularly overlooked by most mainstream awards bodies? Probably not. But consider this: cinema is by now a long-established artform. Movies chart all aspects of the human condition: birth, death, happiness, sadness, ennui, fear, elation, empathy.

The best sci-fi movies arguably achieve the same thing. Where else is the sense of mystery and triumphant discovery felt more keenly than in, say, Solaris? What other genre could explore the nature of addiction with the same humour and pathos as A Scanner Darkly? Could the themes of ageing and disease in The Fly be transposed to a realistic drama and still be as thrilling, bizarre and tragic?

It’s still the case that science »

Stung, 2015

Directed by Benni Diez

Starring Clifton Collins Jr., Jessica Cook, Lance Henriksen, David Masterson, Matt O’Leary, Cecilia Pillado, Kathleen Renish


A fancy garden party turns into upper class prey when a colony of killer wasps mutates into seven foot tall predators.

Imagine if you took The Fly, The Thing, Aliens, Eight Legged Freaks and that cockroach scene from A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 and put them into a blood-filled blender and you get the idea of what to expect from the wickedly fun Stung.

Taking place in a stately home during a rather posh dinner party to remember a family’s dead father, a group of party-goers and the duo providing the catering are given the shock of their lives when they are attacked by killer wasps. But matters turn to worse when the stings from these wasps turn their victims into giant versions of these killer wasps, »

24 August 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

15 years ago today, the Toros stepped out onto the football field and put some serious cheer back into the atmosphere. To steal a phrase from the film: Bring It On's the poo - so take a big whiff.

But what have Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku and the rest of the squad been cheering about since then? To mark the movie's birthday, we put down the pompoms and find out what they've been up to since.

Kirsten Dunst

A Hollywood star from the age of 12 thanks to her breakthrough role in Interview with the Vampire, Dunst's star was burning brightly when she led the Toros as Torrance Shipman. Two years later, she went on to land her biggest role as Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi's three Spider-man films.

In recent years, she's reinvented herself as a critical darling, winning Best Actress at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for Melancholia, »

Spirit of the Wasp’s Nest: Diez’s Debut a Schlocky Creature Feature

African killer bees were once a common threat in disaster themed American cinema of the 1970s, reaching a penultimate plateau of ridiculousness with Irwin Allen’s famous 1978 celebrity packed stink bomb, The Swarm. Their aggressive cousins, mutant wasps, get a chance at bat in Stung, the directorial debut of Benni Diez. Previously a visual effects supervisor, whose most notable credit was Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia (2011), Diez utilizes his particular skillset to notable effect in his first feature. Unfortunately, some striking special effects are the only details saving the picture from being a complete waste of its audience’s time.

Julia (Jessica Cook) has recently had to take over control of her father’s catering business following his untimely death. She’s unsure if she’s up to snuff, relaying her fears to lone employee Paul (Matt »

Cannes: ‘Heli’ Director Amat Escalante Preps ‘Untamed’ (Exclusive)

13 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mexico’s Amat Escalante, whose “Heli” won Cannes’ 2013 best director award, is scaling up and branching out for sci-fi pic “The Untamed” (La region salvaje). To be made on a “significantly higher” budget than “Heli,” “The Untamed” will roll in the fall, shooting in Guanajuato, the director said.

“The Untamed” is lead-produced by Jaime Romandia’s Mantarraya, which also produced Carlos Reygadas’ 2012 best director winner “Post Tenebras Lux.” Jean Labadie’s Paris-based Le Pacte co-produces, as does Katrin Pors at Denmark’s Adomeit Film and Norway’s Mer.

Ndm, the Paris-Mexico City sales company launched by Mantarraya and Reygadas’ Nodream Cinema, will initiate pre-sales on “The Untamed” at Cannes. Manuel Alberto Claro, the d.p. on Lars von Trier’s “Melancholia” and “Nymphomaniac,” will serve as cinematographer. Peter Hjorth, the vfx supervisor on all Von Trier’s movies since “Dancer in the Dark,” will play a similar role on “Untamed. »

Sweden’s Film Industry Seeks More Tax Breaks

13 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sweden, with a celebrated film history of its own, has been playing an increasing role in hosting the production of both big- and small-screen projects. The country not only served as the location for the Millennium trilogy based on the novels of native son Stieg Larsson — it was also the shooting locale for the American adaptation of series’ first installment, David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”

The country also hosted Swedish and British versions of the TV series “Wallander,” as well as numerous films by Danish director Lars von Trier, including “Melancholia,” “Antichrist” and “Dogville.”

Not wanting to lose momentum, members of the Swedish film and TV community are now lobbying the government to establish a production tax credit similar to that of many other countries. “Our main argument is the increased competition from countries in Europe who have the tax incentives in place,” says Ingrid Rudefors »
