Arthouse Audit: 'I'll See You in My Dreams' Tops Openers

17 May 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Mid-May, when most of the specialized industry is encamped on Cannes' Croisette, is not usually a prime opening date for new limited releases. Only "Frances Ha" in recent years has had a strong or better ($20,000+) per-scree- average this weekend, although later in the month around Memorial Day has seen some huge openings ("Midnight in Paris," "Moonrise Kingdom," "The Tree of Life" leading the way). That creates opportunities for enterprising distributors to take advantage in hopes of getting more attention, better access to top theaters and a clear shot at being top performer of the weekend. "I'll See You in My Dreams" (second release from Bleecker Street, who earlier this year opened "Danny Collins") was one of three older-cast movies in Sundance's Premiere section to be acquired (along with "Grandma" and "A Walk in the Woods," opening later this year from Sony Pictures Classics and Broad Green »

Cannes 2015: Woody Allen’s Irrational Man (Video Review)

15 May 2015 10:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

No filmmaker can quite match Woody Allen in terms of the constancy of his output. It’s less than a year since his last film hit cinemas and already we’ve had the world premiere of his latest.

There’s a lot of pressure on Irrational Man. The director’s forty-fifth film (depending on how you count), it comes encumbered with a peerless legacy as well as a desired peak in a recent career burst. In recent years the director’s been on an alternating scale, punctuating major successes (Midnight In Paris, Blue Jasmine) with some of his most middling work (From Rome With Love, Magic In The Moonlight). By that reckoning, Irrational Man should be a film on the up, but a non- committal trailer threw some doubt on whether it’d be just another case of Allen working on the back-burner.

Watch: Clip from Woody Allen's 'Irrational Man' as Cannes Reviews Arrive

15 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I was supposed to have seen Woody Allen's new movie Irrational Man a day before it screened at the Cannes Film Festival, giving me a chance to review it the same time as the Cannes crowd, but that review was swiftly canceled and perhaps the reviews out of the fest suggest why. Over at Variety, Scott Foundas calls it one of Allen's "more offbeat and ambitiously weird projects since the fragmented Deconstructing Harry in 1997, though less conventionally entertaining than recent home runs like Blue Jasmine and Midnight in Paris." At The Playlist, Jessica Kiang savages the film concluding her review writing, "As an unyielding, deeply fond fan of many of Allen's earlier films, some of which have combined homicide and humor to far, far, far greater effect, it gives me no pleasure to ask the question that buzzed through my brain at the end of Irrational Man: how »

Daily | Cannes 2015 | Woody Allen’s Irrational Man

15 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

Woody Allen's Irrational Man with Joaquin Phoenix, Emma Stone and Parker Posey, has premiered Out of Competition in Cannes and has been met with mixed reviews. Screen calls it a "modestly appointed but fiercely intellectual thriller," but for the Playlist, it's "an embarrassment." Variety calls it "one of the Woodman’s more offbeat and ambitiously weird projects since the fragmented Deconstructing Harry in 1997, though less conventionally entertaining than recent home runs like Blue Jasmine and Midnight in Paris." We've got more reviews and, of course, the trailer. » - David Hudson »

First Irrational Man Clip Has Parker Posey Trying to “Unblock” Joaquin Phoenix

15 May 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first Irrational Man clip has gone online. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as an alcoholic, melancholy philosophy professor who strikes up a unique friendship with one of his students, played by Emma Stone. In this clip, we see Phoenix’s character wrestling with his writer’s block and Parker Posey’s character who hopes to “unblock” him. I’m still not really sure what to make of the movie from this brief minute or even by the trailer, but hopefully Woody Allen has delivered another hit. Judging by Midnight in Paris and Blue Jasmine, he’s still got it in him. Check out the Irrational Man clip below. The film opens July 17th, and also stars Jamie Blackley. Via The Playlist.

Cannes Film Review: ‘Irrational Man’

15 May 2015 4:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After Alfred Hitchcock and his Gallic disciple, Claude Chabrol, has any filmmaker devoted more screen time to contemplating the mechanics of the “perfect” murder than Woody Allen? Allen’s latest, “Irrational Man,” adds to a tally that also includes “Crimes and Misdemeanors,” “Match Point” and the little-seen “Cassandra’s Dream” —  only, unlike those films’ homicidal protagonists, the philosophical anti-hero of Allen’s 45th feature kills not for love or money, but rather for a kind of existential clarity. That conceit puts a fresh spin on a familiar premise and marks “Irrational Man” as one of the Woodman’s more offbeat and ambitiously weird projects since the fragmented “Deconstructing Harry” in 1997, though less conventionally entertaining than recent home runs like “Blue Jasmine” and “Midnight in Paris.” Arthouse traffic should be decent but modest for the July 17 Sony Classics release.

In a role that suits his laconic, rum-soaked rhythms nearly as well »

From Adaline To Allen: Blake Lively Joins Woody Project

6 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

She’s been getting good reviews for her lead performance in immortal romance weepy The Age Of Adaline. And now it seems Blake Lively’s movie career is really taking off, with news she’s signed up for Woody Allen’s latest offering.

Untitled, as Allen projects usually are, the film sees the former Gossip Girl star appear alongside Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Bruce Willis in an as-yet-undisclosed plotline. Though the director’s output can vary in tone, he’s predominantly known for comedy. Heavier fare has been avoided in recent years – light confections such as Midnight In Paris and Magic In The Moonlight have been his staple, though he could be planning a drama this time round.

Either way, it’s a boost for Mrs Ryan Reynolds, who’s currently preparing to shoot All I See Is You for World War Z’s Marc Forster. Meanwhile, Allen’s »

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. »

Cannes: 'Standing Tall' to open 2015 festival

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

A female director will open the festival for the first time in nearly 30 years.

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.

Standing Tall stars Catherine Deneuve, Benoît Magimel, Sara Forestier and Rod Paradot, who plays the main character, juvenile delinquent Malony, following his upbringing from childhood to adulthood, as a children’s judge and social worker try to save him.

It was filmed in the Nord-Pas de Calais, Rhône-Alpes and Paris.

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.

This reference to a “surprising” choice likely refers to the recent run of star-powered openers including Woody Allen’s [link »

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.

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. »

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 »
