Phoenix & Stone Get Romantic in Woody Allen's 'Irrational Man' Trailer

29 April 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You suffer from despair." Another year, another film from iconic writer and director Woody Allen. This summer brings his latest film, The Irrational Man, to theaters, but not before premiering at Cannes Film Festival in May. Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone star in the film that follows a small town college philosophy professor (Phoenix) in existential crisis who gives his life new purpose when he enters into a relationship with his student (Stone). As with nearly all of Allen's films, the lead character seems to be a variation on the director himself, but both Phoenix and Stone have their own narration throughout. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Woody Allen's The Irrational Man, officially on YouTube: The Irrational Man is written and directed by Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris, Blue Jasmine, Mahattan, Annie Hall). The story follows a Rhode Island philosophy professor (Joaquin Phoenix of Inherent Vice, The Master »

Emmanuelle Bercot.s La Tete Haute Will Open Cannes 2015

13 April 2015 4:56 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It seems somehow fitting that this year’s Cannes, which is already celebrating Ingrid Bergman, should select the first film by a female director to open the festival in 28 years. Emmanuelle Bercot’s Standing Tall (La Tête Haute) is that film.While the films in the main selection categories for the festival have yet to be announced, we do know that Standing Tall will have its premiere on opening day, May 13, and arrives in French cinemas the same day. It’s also the first time in a few years that a high-profile release hasn't taken the opening night slot, following such recent examples as The Great Gatsby, Midnight In Paris and, er, Grace Of Monaco.Standing Tall stars Catherine Deneuve, Benoît Magimel, Sara Forestier and Rod Paradot in the story of juvenile delinquent Malony, following his upbringing from childhood to adulthood, as a children’s judge and social worker try to save him. »

13 April 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Standing Tall (La Tête Haute), a film by French director Emmanuelle Bercot, is to open the 68th Cannes Film Festival on May 13.

It marks the first time a film by a female director has opened the festival since Diane KurysA Man in Love in 1987.

Surprising

“The choice of this film may seem surprising, given the rules generally applied to the Festival de Cannes opening ceremony,” said Thierry Frémaux, general delegate of the festival.

Cannes: Emmanuelle Bercot’s ‘La Tete haute’ to Open 68th Film Festival (Exclusive)

13 April 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

French actress-director Emmanuelle Bercot’s “La Tete haute,” starring Catherine Deneuve, has been selected to open the Cannes Film Festival on May 13, Variety has learned.

The film, which is being sold by Elle Driver and distributed in France by Wild Bunch, follows the experience of a juvenile delinquent named Malony from ages 6 to 18, with Deneuve playing a judge trying to intervene. It’s Deneuve’s second collaboration with Bercot after “On My Way,” which premiered in competition at the 2013 Berlin Film Festival.

It hasn’t yet been decided whether “La Tete haute” will premiere in or out of competition.

Bercot will be the first female director to open the festival since 1987, when Cannes kicked off with Diane Kurys’ “A Man in Love.” Although she began her career as an actress (with credits including “Class Trip,” “A tout de suite” and “Carlos”), Bercot has become better known in recent years as a writer-director. »

Cannes anticipation at fever pitch by Richard Mowe - 2015-04-12 16:11:03

Agyness Deyn and Peter Mullan in Sunset Song

With only a few days to go before the official launch of this year’s Cannes Film Festival selection for both the Competition and Un Certain Regard on Thursday (16 April) the rumour mill has been rife with potential titles to figure in artistic director Thierry Fremaux’s closely guarded secrets.

Educated guesses suggest that there are better than average chance of Woody Allen’s 45th film, Irrational Man, will be there. He has form – both Midnight In Paris and Match Point were included out of Competition. Apparently Allen turns darker in this one, which stars Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix.

Cannes regulars Terence Davies (Peter Mullan stars in his literary adaptation of Sunset Song) and French auteur Jacques Audiard who made A Prophet and Rust And Bone, and has been rushing to finish an emigré drama, Erran, both look likely.

The film will be in theaters on May 1, 2015.

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

‘American Hustle': A Nostalgic Look Back

18 March 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The past is complicated. It only exists in memory, and, while the truth of what occurred is fixed, these facts can be changed and warped simply because of perspective into what we know as memories. Nostalgia undoubtedly comes out of these warped views. It refers to a sense many have that times gone by were better than the time we currently live through.

It’s also a familiar topic for cinema, which ably tackles the topic in films like The Last Picture Show or even Midnight in Paris. These films question what it is about the past that fascinates us, and what we might hope to find there that we can’t seem to find in our daily lives. American Hustle is not a film that can readily be looked at through this lens. Upon its release it was compared to films like Goodfellas and Boogie Nights. It was met with widespread acclaim, »

'American Ultra' Stars Stewart and Eisenberg Reportedly Join Allen's Next Film Project

9 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

American Ultra stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg will be reunited later this year in another project: Woody Allen's next as yet untitled feature. Bruce Willis is the third cast member whose name has been publicly announced. The source for this information is an "exclusive" report via Deadline.com's Mike Fleming Jr. So far, as Fleming explains in his brief piece, Woody Allen and "his people" haven't confirmed the casting. In other words, things could change in the not-too-distant future. See also: Kristen Stewart Joins Kelly Reichardt Movie Project, also featuring Laura Dern and Michelle Williams. Unsurprisingly, no plot details about the upcoming Woody Allen project have been forthcoming. In fact, one wonders if Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and Bruce Willis – in case they have indeed joined the fold – know what the movie is going to be about. Allen's latest collaborators – Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson – will be producing the film. »

Hannibal Season 3 to Premiere on June 4th

6 March 2015 1:59 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Mark your calendars, make your dinner party arrangements, and sharpen your carving knives: NBC's Hannibal Season 3 will premiere on Thursday, June 4th, at 10:00pm Est.

The announcement was made via the show's Facebook page, on which a photo of the cycle-riding, on-the-run (presumably in Florence, Italy) Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) was posted (image shown below).

It was recently revealed that Zachary Quinto will star in a minimum of one episode in the upcoming third season of Hannibal. Quinto (NBC's The Slap, Spock in Star Trek: Into Darkness, American Horror Story: Asylum, Heroes) will play a "patient of Bedelia’s (Gillian Anderson)."

In other, previously announced Hannibal Season 3 casting news, it was revealed in late January that Glenn Fleshler (True Detective) will play Cordell Doemling, a familiar name to fans of Thomas Harris' books and the Hannibal Lecter movies. For those unfamiliar, Cordell Doemling is the verbally »

Week in Review: Academy considering move back to 5 Best Picture nominees

6 March 2015 8:54 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The experiment has failed. The Oscars simply don’t work. And no, I’m not just continuing to vent my frustration over Boyhood losing.

For the last six years, The Academy has experimented with a different number of Best Picture nominees, starting with 10, then a variable number between five and 10 based on first place votes.

That experiment could now be coming to an end. The Hollywood Reporter floated the rumor Tuesday that the Academy is seriously considering switching back to five nominees for Best Picture, and that the motion has support with a “significant fraction of the Academy”.

This is speculation at the moment, as the Academy’s Board of Governors isn’t set to meet until March 24. That said, this year’s Oscar ratings were down by 15 percent from last year, despite having one of the year’s biggest box office hits in American Sniper up for Best Picture »

StreamFix: 5 Weird Movies Starring Oscar Nominees on Netflix Now

18 February 2015 4:47 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There is only one correct way to prepare for the Oscars: resentfully watching every bad, dubious, or weird movie starring this year's honorees and feeling smug about it. StreamFix is here to help. Here are five weird choices streaming on Netflix to get you caught up on some of the 2014 nominees. "Chalet Girl" with Felicity Jones Felicity Jones would have more of a chance at an Oscar if she just called herself "the other Carey Mulligan" and dealt with it. Anyway, remember "Chalet Girl"? It was about Felicity Jones and Ed Westwick enjoying wonderful times on the slopes. Let us consult The New York Times' review for some insight into this cinematic journey: "'Chalet Girl' may not be particularly creative or genre busting or even a great example of a romantic comedy. But its premise might make you smile." I know I always go to the movies for »

Best Original Screenplay: Will Wes Anderson finally get a 'Grand' Oscar moment?

16 February 2015 2:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Screenwriters never have it easy, do they? They often complain they are seen as second class citizens to the director. Actors often get credit for improvising a line they wrote and, worse, producers will often play games with the media, insisting they came up with a key storyline or the entire project themselves. Things get even more complicated with the sometimes unfair arbitration rules that often find the wrong writer getting final credit for a project (often because of a contract he or she signed). Frankly, all of this adversity might be one reason why winning an Academy Award means so much to a working Hollywood screenwriter.   This year's crop of Original Screenplay nominees are all worthy of taking home Oscar on their previous merits. Without a true "first-timer" in the group*, it goes without saying whoever wins this year might find the spoils that much sweeter. "Boyhood's" Richard Linklater »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Every Thing Will Be Fine’

10 February 2015 12:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“We can only try to believe that there’s meaning to this,” murmurs Charlotte Gainsbourg midway through “Every Thing Will Be Fine” — voicing viewers’ thoughts for the first and only time in Wim Wenders’ labored, lumbering melodrama. An inglorious return to narrative filmmaking for the German master, this protracted study in grief and forgiveness does little to suggest his time hasn’t been better spent making documentaries for the past seven years. Imprisoning James Franco in the role of an emotionally constipated writer taking 10 years to process a fatal car accident, “Fine” is unlikely to arouse much empathy from auds, who may instead spend most of the running time wondering why Wenders chose to dramatize these dingy proceedings in advanced 3D. Despite this arthouse novelty and a name cast, the conviction of the title will not be echoed by’s conviction.

Berlin: ‘Night’ Producer Mediapro Launches Drama ‘The Mothers of Elna’ (Exclusive)

5 February 2015 10:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mediapro, the Spanish producer of Woody Allen, Roman Polanski as well as Berlin opener “Nobody Wants the Night” and competition player “The Pearl Necklace,” is selling one of its most ambitious projects yet: “The Mothers of Elna.”

Budgeted at €15 million-€20 million ($17 million-$23 million), and with financing in place, English-language “Mothers” will star four high-profile international actors, said Mediapro’s Jaume Roures, producer of “Nobody Wants the Night,” although he would not disclose names yet.

In an unusual reverse of most projects coming on to the market, its challenge is not to complete financing but to attach a first-class director, he added.

“Elna” is based on the true-life story of Swiss nurse Elisabeth Eidenbenz, who between 1939 and 1944 helped save the lives of 597 babies, many born to Republican women in squalid southern France internment camps after Spain’s Civil War.

Centering on four characters, a first draft screenplay of “Elna “ has been »
