Tiff Trailer: 'Samba' Starring Omar Sy, Charlotte Gainsbourg & Tahar Rahim

29 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A few years back, all anyone could talk about at the arthouse was "The Intouchables." It was the third most watched film in France in 2011, sitting at number one at the box office there for ten weeks. And not only was it a hit in its home country, but it traveled abroad widely, earning a grand total of $444.7 million worldwide and scooping up awards, while The Weinstein Company snapped up the remake rights. And now writer/directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano are back with a followup. "Samba" brings together the attractive cast of "The Intouchables" star Omar Sy, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Tahar Rahim and Izïa Higelin to tell the story of the relationship that develops between an undocumented immigrant looking to get his legal working papers and a burned out executive. So, perhaps a bit of social commentary and a dose of romance to go with it? Sure looks like it. »

Samba’s” San Sebastian turn marks its European premiere after it is first seen as a Gala Presentation at Toronto.

Also starring “A Prophet’s” Tahar Rahim, “Samba” substitutes across-the-tracks bromance for across-the-tracks romance with Sy playing a Mali immigrant, Samba Cisse, and Gainsbourg a burnt-out exec recycling as an immigration worker. She »

X-Men: Days of Future Past extended director’s cut not arriving until next year

6 August 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back at the start of last month, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that an extended Director’s Cut of this year’s mutant superhero smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past would be arriving later this year. However, if you were planning on putting off buying the theatrical version – which arrives in October – in order to wait for the extended edition, then we have some bad news for you as 20th Century Fox’s Evp of Marketing Communications James Finn has stated via Twitter that the extended cut won’t be out until 2015. So, it seems any Anna Paquin fans out there are going to have to wait a little longer before they get to see Rogue back in action…

Will you be picking up the theatrical edition of X-Men: Days of Future Past, or do you plan on holding off for the extended cut?

Bryan Singer developing The Age of Heroes adaptation

11 July 2014 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having directed 3 X-Men movies (his latest being X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Superman Returns, you would expect Bryan Singer to be moving away from the comic book world before heading back in for X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. However, Tracking Boards show that his company, Bat Hat Harry, have acquired the rights to The Age of Heroes by James Hudnall for a big screen adaptation.

The Age of Heroes was released in the 1990s. Here’s the synopsis:

When the gods were born, they remade the world in the image of their dreams. This was known as the Age of Gods. When man was created along with other races of beings, fantastic cities were raised, insane magics were forged and unimaginable wars were fought, as the gods battled for supremacy over all creation. This was known as the Age of Wonders. When the gods fled and man was left to make »

Mood Indigo Clip Has Romain Duris Meeting Audrey Tautou Pre Flower In Lungs

7 July 2014 5:40 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Michel Gondry is something of an enigma in the film world, and one who reportedly found himself in an uncomfortable position during and after The Green Hornet. His latest, Mood Indigo, is hitting in limited release on July 18th, and its the film to see this summer, if you get the chance.

Returning to the wonder of his beginnings (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), and taking a lot of notes from the past thirty years of French cinema, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet (and, borrows his favorite leading lady), Gondry’s lastest looks like it could easily be one of the year’s best.

Check out the new clip below, which expands on their meeting, which is hinted at in the trailer above.

After helping the X-Men franchise to hit a combined $3 billion earlier in the week, Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has now pushed its worldwide total to $712.7 million this weekend, overtaking rival Marvel superhero movies The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($703.7 million) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($711.2 million) to become the highest-grossing movie of the year so so far.

Days of Future Past still faces some competition to close 2014 as the biggest earner, with Transformers: Age of Extinction, Guardians of the Galaxy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Interstellar, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies all likely to enjoy solid box office returns.

Good People Trailer: James Franco and Kate Hudson Stumble Upon Some Serious Cash

26 June 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Millennium Entertainment has released the first Good People trailer for director Henrik Ruben Genz’s crime thriller.  The film stars James Franco and Kate Hudson as a cash-strapped couple living in London who come across a duffle bag full of money when their downstairs neighbor turns up dead.  Initially thinking no one would miss the large sum, the two soon find themselves in over their heads.  The London setting allows the film to stand out amongst the glut of other generic gritty thrillers, and Omar Sy (The Intouchables) appears to be playing a rather menacing villain.  It’s still tough to tell whether Franco is half asleep or genuinely giving it his all, though.  He does make a lot of movies. Hit the jump to watch the Good People trailer.  The film also stars Tom Wilkinson and will be released in theaters and VOD on September 26th. Here’s the »

Kelsey Grammer on returning to the X-Men franchise as Beast

23 June 2014 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a promotional interview ahead of the release of his latest film Transformers: Age of Extinction, Collider managed to grab a few quotes from Kelsey Grammer about reprising his X-Men: The Last Stand role of Hank McCoy / Beast in this year’s mutant superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past:

“Actually I called Bryan [Singer]. I bumped into Hugh Jackman and he said, ‘Oh you’re gonna be in another X-Men, mate!’ and I said, ‘No I’m not, I don’t know anything about it.’ So I made a couple of inquiries, got a hold of the script, found out that it’s primarily dealing with the past and that timeline I don’t have a place in, but I saw that at the end there was this coda where he made an appearance. I said, ‘Listen, I really wanna be involved,’ so Bryan arranged for it and I had a lovely time. »
