Rave Reviews For MacBeth As It Opens At Cannes 2015; New Clips Feature Michael Fassbender And Marion Cotillard

23 May 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

#Redcarpet MacBeth by Justin Kurzel #Cannes2015

— Festival de Cannes (@Festival_Cannes) May 23, 2015

Of all of William Shakespeare’s classic works, Macbeth must surely be amongst his most famous.

Certainly, in the more than 400 years since its first publication, it has been one of the most frequently adapted; revived regularly on stage and re-envisioned time and again in the age of cinema and television.

Now comes a bold and daring version starring Academy-Award nominee Michael Fassbender (12 Years A Slave) and Academy-Award winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose).

Directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown), MacBeth had its World Premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and was the final movie to screen in Competition.

In his review, Guy Lodge (Variety) praises the director’s “thrillingly elemental new adaptation. Fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it’s a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period.”

Michelle Williams To Mine For Gold With Matthew McConaughey

15 May 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Outside of her supporting role in blockbuster Oz the Great and Powerful, Michelle Williams has been keeping a relatively low profile since her Oscar-nominated turn in My Week with Marilyn. Now, though, with anticipated drama Manchester by the Sea in the can, the actress is lining up another highly promising project in mining drama Gold.

Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez are already attached to star in the “inspired by true events” pic, which dramatizes and takes some liberties with the story of the 1993 Bre-x Minerals mining scandal. Williams will be taking on the role of McConaughey’s wife.

Some may remember the high-profile incident, in which one part of the company fraudulently reported that it had unearthed a massive gold deposit at its Indonesian site. Stock prices soared, until gold samples were found to be a fraud, at which point Bre-x collapsed and its shares became utterly worthless.

Eddie Redmayne Now In Talks For Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

12 May 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A month ago, we learned that Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) was Warner Bros.’ top choice to play adventuring hero Newt Scamander in Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but now it appears that the British thesp has entered into official talks for the lead role.

When Redmayne’s name first came up in association with the high-profile project, J.K. Rowling had not yet completed the first draft of her screenplay for the franchise-launching pic, which takes place in New York 70 years before the Harry Potter movies and centers on the travels of a magizoologist whose eventual textbook (the source of the title) would go on to become required reading for Hogwarts students.

Rowling originally wrote a slim version of Scamander’s textbook back in 2001 to benefit the charity Comic Relief. When Warner Bros. approached her about continuing Harry Potter in some capacity, »

Michelle Williams Debuts New Platinum 'Do at Louis Vuitton Show

7 May 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Michelle Williams is one hot mama!  The actress attended the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2016 Resort Collection in Palm Springs, California on Wednesday, where she stunned wearing a patterned cocktail dress and black booties.  The "My Week with Marilyn" actress also debuted her even lighter, platinum blonde locks, which fell right above her shoulders. Williams finished her look with natural makeup and styled her short blonde tresses in loose waves.  While we've rarely seen the "Dawson's Creek" alum at public events recently, she definitely stole the spotlight sitting front row at the Louis Vuitton fashion show.  It does help that the 34-year-old is close with the French fashion house -- the "Blue Valentine" actress has starred in three of the brand's campaigns!  Michelle definitely looked like she was enjoying herself, too. Williams was spotted chatting with stars like Selena Gomez, Miranda Kerr and Catherine Deneuve at the high-profile event.  What do you »

Wamg Talks To Woman In Gold Director Simon Curtis

9 April 2015 7:37 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

After having robust box office numbers this past weekend and being praised by both audiences and critics, Woman In Gold opens in wide release this Friday, April 10. In his review, Jim Batts says, “Woman In Gold concerns a celebrated work of art, but it’s also about two inspiring lives also worthy of celebration.” Read his review here.

Woman In Gold is the remarkable true story of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt’s famous painting ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I’.

With Woman in Gold, the Story of This Famous Painting Is Finally Told With the Emotion It Deserves

31 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

The story of Gustav Klimt's painting The Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer (confiscated by Nazis, displayed as Austria's Mona Lisa in a Vienna museum, test case in the law granting reparations to Jewish descendants) has already been detailed in articles, a book, and several documentaries. What Woman in Gold has over nonfiction portrayals is emotion, and director Simon Curtis (My Week With Marilyn) milks every scene for its heart-tugging potential. Alexi Kaye Campbell's script makes it easy for Curtis: The relationship between Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), whose aunt is depicted in Klimt's famous golden portrait, and attorney Randol Schoenberg (Rya »

Review: Helen Mirren's 'Woman in Gold' paints by numbers and it could've been worse

31 March 2015 3:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's probably something of a compliment that a "Weinstein Company" movie has become its own genre. Back in the day this would be known, of course, as a "Miramax" movie, but Harvey Weinstein has managed to keep this trope alive even at his relatively new company. For those who are uniformed, a "Weinstein Company" movie usually includes a number of the following characteristics: (1) it's a period piece usually touching somehow on World War II, (2) it's primarily aimed at an over 25 and/or female demo, (3) it often features a meaty lead role that could lead to an Oscar nomination and/or (4) it features a previous Academy Award winner in some capacity.  This type of movie used to be the definition of Oscar bait, but over the last decade it’s become almost exclusively associated with a majority of The Weinstein Company’s releases (You can now argue Oscar bait’s meaning »

All that Glitters: Curtis Traps Compelling Kernel in Avalanche of Schmaltz

British television alum Simon Curtis graduated to feature filmmaking in 2011 with the incredibly problematic My Week with Marilyn. Apparently, whatever its faults, they were easy to overlook, as the film nabbed a number of critics’ choice awards, along with prestigious BAFTA and Academy Award nominations. Unfortunately, his penchant for mawkishness has showed no sides of abatement in his follow-up feature, Woman in Gold, also based on compelling true events but at least portraying subjects that feel imbued with less drastic measures of caricature since they aren’t ingrained in cultural pop subconscious with such sacred fury.

In the late 1990s, the Austrian government began to revamp its art restitution laws in reference to victims of WWII. Upon the death of her sister, Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), an elderly Los Angeles shop keeper who had fled Austria sixty years prior to escape the Nazis, »

Interview: Director Simon Curtis Fashions the ‘Woman in Gold’

30 March 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – The painting “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer” was created by Austrian artist Gustav Klimt, and was considered Austria’s greatest artwork. The remarkable journey of the painting, stolen from its original Jewish family by the Nazis during World War II, is the basis for the new film, “Woman in Gold,” directed by Simon Curtis.

Woman in Gold” is based on the true story of Maria Altmann (portrayed in the film by Helen Mirren), a Viennese immigrant in the United States who fought the Austrian government for rightful claim to her family’s paintings in the 1990s, including the famous gold leaf portrait of her Aunt Adele. Altmann brings in an American lawyer named Randol Schoenberg (Ryan Reynolds) to act as her lawyer, and their years of litigation to make this art restitution was one of the most high profile of these cases. The film includes flashbacks of the family in Vienna during those war years, »
