11 May 2011 3:37 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Updated through 5/11.

Suddenly, it's summer: trailers for X-Men: First Class, Transformers 3 and the final, no-really-this-is-it installment of the Harry Potter franchise have popped online in rapid succession, Fast Five "is racing towards a $79 million to $81 million weekend opening," and the first round of summer movie previews is out.

"As it celebrates its tenth anniversary with its fifth series entry, Universal's Fast and the Furious franchise should rightly be regarded as one of the more reliable popcorn pleasures of recent years," writes Scott Foundas at the Fslc's Blog, "and also, like the Harry Potter films, that rare long-legged franchise that has actually gotten better with age. A revved-up, nitrous-boosted makeover of the hot-rod movies of the 50s and 60s, the first Fast and the Furious (borrowing the title, though not the plot, from a 1955 Roger Corman quickie) followed undercover Los Angeles cop Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) as he infiltrated an »

Arthouse Audit: 'Jane Eyre,' 'Win Win' Continue to Impress

28 March 2011 3:49 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Jane Eyre led all limited releases thanks to its theater count advantage, and Win Win showed signs of growth potential. None of the weekend's new entries really stood out, with sports drama The 5th Quarter stumbling out of the gate and controversial drama Miral failing to leverage substantial press coverage.Jane Eyre finished in 16th place on the overall weekend chart, up 108 percent to $969,993. This gain was mostly attributed to an increase from 26 to 90 theaters, but the movie's per-theater average declined 40 percent to $10,778. The Mia Wasikowska-Michael Fassbender drama continued to outperform similar movies The Duchess and The Young Victoria, which ended their runs with $13.9 million and $11 million, respectively. With $1.9 million so far, Jane Eyre is set to expand to at least 150 locations this coming weekend. Win Win added 18 theaters for a total of 23 and was up 209 percent to $464,420. That's just a few thousand dollars behind what Jane Eyre did in its second weekend, »

Weekly Alternatives: 'Carlos,' 'Waste Land' and 'We Are What We Are'

18 February 2011 9:09 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Carlos I've given up trying to label Carlos -- the Golden Globes called it 2010's "Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television," while the La Film Critics Association honored it with awards for "Best Foreign Language Film" and "Best Director" for Oliver Assayas (in a tie with The Social Network's David Fincher) -- so I'll just call it "epic." Carlos runs 5 1/2 hours and features 11 languages filmed in 9 countries on 3 continents, all held together by Edgar Ramirez's masterfully charismatic lead performance. This is the definitive portrait of the Venezuelan international terrorist known as Carlos the Jackal, who had a legendary two-decade run that began in the early '70s.

If you like gangster flicks, I suspect you'll love Carlos. Because that's basically what Carlos is -- a gangster with a "cause." There's also a 165 minute "movie version" of Carlos that I haven't seen. I can't imagine it working »

[Oscar Anticipation] Talking With ‘Blue Valentine’ Director Derek Cianfrance

14 February 2011 1:11 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

What does it feel like to go from one under-seen Sundance competitor to a Harvey Weinstein-distributed indie smash starring two of the hottest actors in the business, the first disappearing in the middle of a booming independent climate and the second peaking during one of the biggest buying lulls in recent memory?

Tfs talked to Derek Cianfrance about this feeling, learning film from stuff like Creepshow and Airplane 2, stealing tape recorders and man-handling HBO via VHS tapes. There’s also his next Gosling project, The Place Beyond The Pines, his long-gestating Metalhead and the difference between film and video.

Tfs: How’d it all start for you? Where are you coming from? How did you break into the business? And how’d you find yourself making your dream project and getting an Oscar nomination [for Michelle Williams] out of it?

Derek Cianfrance: When I was a kid I always wanted to make movies. »
