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.

The Conversation: One Never Cannes Tell… 2015 Cannes Film Fest Predictions

9 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With the world’s most prestigious film festival just around the corner, cineastes have been lasciviously salivating about what’s going to show up at Cannes, with wish lists appearing almost immediately after Berlin (a fest that had one of their most impressive line-ups ever) announced their awards. The remainder of the 2015 fest circuit looks to be a plentiful, diverse porridge, with many of the world’s most renowned auteurs’ sporting brand new titles. While many prognosticators will be sharing the same lists, more or less, hopes are incredibly high for a handful of sure bets, and a gaggle of hopefuls. The main competition always seems easier to postulate, though Thierry Fremaux always throws a few curves, (After the Battle in 2012, The Hunt in 2013 or last year’s Timbuktu, which won the Cesar for Best Picture recently, are a couple ready examples of under-the-radar titles).

Italy seems primed for saturation at the fest. »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #79. Emmanuelle Bercot’s La tête haute

6 January 2015 6:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

La tête haute

Director: Emmanuelle Bercot // Writer: Emmanuelle Bercot, Marcia Romano

Though initially an actress that appeared in films from Jean-Francois Richet and Benoit Jacquot (and more recently, two films from Maiwenn, including Polisse, which Bercot co-wrote), Emmanuelle Bercot has fashioned her own career as a director, most recently with the Catherine Deneuve headlined On My Way. Bercot reteams with Deneuve for La tête haute (Head Held High), and adds other exciting names like Benoit Magimel and Sara Forestier to the mix. Co-written by Marcia Romano, who penned delicious titles by Ozon, such as Under the Sand and Criminal Lovers, the film tells the story of Malony and his education as he grows from a six-year-old into an 18-year-old. A minors’ judge and a caseworker work tirelessly to try to save the young offender.

Cast: Catherine Deneuve, Benoit Magimel, Sara Forestier

Producers: France 2 Cinema, Wild Bunch, Les Films du Kiosque »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #89. Maiwenn’s Mon roi

5 January 2015 12:45 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Mon roi

Director: Maiwenn // Writers: Etienne Comar, Maiwenn

Actress turned director Maiwenn’s last stint behind the camera won her the Jury Prize at Cannes 2011 with the moving dramatic ensemble, Polisse.

The film, shot back in March, recounts, over the course of several years, the passionate and intricate love story of a couple with a child.

Cast: Vincent Cassel, Emmanuelle BercotLudovic Berthillot

Producers: France 2 Cinema, Les Productions du Tresor’s Alain Attal (Blood Ties), Studiocanal.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available.

Release Date: Pegged with an October release in France, with her last film playing in the main competition and winning a major award, »
