First trailers for David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars

17 April 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

eOne has released the first two trailers for David Cronenberg’s upcoming Hollywood ghost story Maps to the Stars, which stars Mia Wasikowska (Stoker), Julianne Moore (Carrie), John Cusack (The Frozen Ground), Robert Pattinson (Twilight), Olivia Williams (Sabotage) and Sarah Gadon (The Amazing Spider-Man 2). Check them out after the official synopsis…

Led by the loathsome yet funny and touching child-star Benjie, we witness the convoluted world of shallow, selfish celebrities and their minions, all of whom are about to be manipulated and destroyed by the young woman who literally represents the fruit of their twisted machinations, Agatha, Benjie’s tormented, apparently psychotic sister. As much as it is a sharp, comic look at a vacant and corrupt world, Maps To The Stars is also a haunting ghost story.

Maps to the Stars will premiere at Cannes, and is currently without a fixed release date.

Robert Pattinson and Julianne Moore get it on in sexy-weird 'Maps to the Stars' trailer

14 April 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Robert Pattinson has re-teamed with his "Cosmopolis" director David Cronenberg, and you can get your first look at the result now. Mia Wasikowska appears to be playing a variation on her character from Park Chan-wook's "Stoker" in the international trailer for "Maps to the Stars," a Hollywood-set thriller in which Julianne Moore plays an actress named Havana Segrand whose new personal assistant (Wasikowska's Agatha Weiss) just so happens to be a pyromaniac recently released from a psychiatric hospital. Did I mention that John Cusack plays Agatha's dad and that Carrie Fisher plays herself? And that Pattinson's character is an aspiring actor named Jerome Fontana? Yes, this is promising. Check out all the sexy Cronenbergian weirdness in the trailer below. Exclu : la première bande-annonce de «Maps to... by Telerama_BA »

Review: Jarmusch Puts a Refreshing, Distinctive Stamp on Vampres in Only Lovers Left Alive

7 April 2014 6:36 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

When Only Lovers Left Alive was announced I think it was hard to not get at least a little bit excited. Here was have Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) and Tilda Swinton (We Need To Talk About Kevin) - two powerhouse actors playing vampires in a world crafted by the always underlyingly powerful Jim Jarmusch, the man behind Ghost Dog, Dead Man and Broken Flowers, among others. That’s a lot of heavy hitter roster to begin with. Throw in the always lovable Anton Yelchin (Fright Night), the rising star Mia Wasikowska (Stoker) and the infamous John Hurt (Alien, Hellboy) and you have a stacked deck. So the question was could the film possibly live up to the hype that the cast induces? Absolutely.

Fashion Face-Off! Nicole Kidman vs. Emma Watson in Sexy Suits

27 March 2014 | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Is there anything more chic than a woman in a perfectly tailored man's suit? We say no, and Nicole Kidman and Emma Watson appear to agree. The Railway Man star and the Noah actress stun with two slightly askew versions of the same black tie attire. So which works best? The Aussie beauty's cape cut and bow-tied top or the British icon's simple, Saint Laurent approach? There's an almost Houdini haute couture vibe about the Stoker star's winged jacket—like we wouldn't be surprised if she whipped it off and used it to reveal a rabbit. And yet the overall look is also more interesting than the Bling Ring star's more basic combo. But shouldn't the measure of excellent menswear »

‘Tracks’, with Mia Wasikowska, releases a new trailer

11 March 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the young actresses who has seen her star rise in Hollywood over the past few years is Mia Wasikowska. With roles in movies such as The Kids are All Right, Jane Eyre, Lawless, and Stoker, as well as the tv show In Treatment, her presence in a project increases its interest. It was no different with her newest feature, titled Tracks. The film is directed by John Curran, and the screenplay is adapted by Marion Nelson from a book by Robyn Davidson. Wasikowska stars onscreen alongside Adam Driver, Emma Booth, and Jessica Tovey, and a new trailer for the film has now been released. The trailer can be seen below.

Review: Haunt

11 March 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For his feature film debut, up-and-coming director Mac Carter gives us his own spin on various familiar haunted house tropes in the “better than its bland name would suggest” supernatural thriller Haunt.

It’s opening, ripe in self-awareness that we’re all more than familiar with every kind of supernatural story under the sun these days, establishes early that while Haunt may not be necessarily the most original horror movie you’ll see this year, that doesn’t mean it can’t be a well-crafted, finely executed and highly enjoyable one all the same.

Haunt begins by setting us up with a backstory to its tale, creating an early sense of tension after we witness a grieving man, desperate to make contact with his deceased family, unleashes something far more dangerous than he could possibly imagine via a mysterious box that can communicate with the dead. The story then catches »

‘Tracks’ Trailer: Mia Wasikowska Romances Adam Driver In the Australian Outback

7 March 2014 5:28 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Director John Curran’s Tracks had solid showings at both Telluride and Venice film festivals, and with The Weinstein Company having snagged the epic Aussie adventure for Us distribution rights, a theatrical drop date should be forthcoming. For now, we at least get our first look in a new trailer. The movie is adapted from Robyn Davidson’s autobiography of the same name, telling the story of her solo trek through almost two thousand miles of Australian desert, from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean. With only the companionship of four camels and her dog, Diggity, during her adventure she met the unique folk you’d only find making a home of the desert and also, eventually, National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan, who documented her journey. Screenwriter Marion Nelson handled screen adaptation duties. Tracks has had a strangely long gestation period, as talks of now 47-year-old Julia Roberts portraying Davidson, who »

Watch: Full Us Trailer for the Wonderful 'Tracks' with Mia Wasikowska

7 March 2014 4:01 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"When people ask why I'm doing it, my usual answer is: why not." The Weinstein Company has unveiled their full theatrical Us trailer for the film Tracks, from director John Curran (The Painted Veil), starring Mia Wasikowska as explorer Robyn Davidson, who hiked her way solo across the Australian Outback. It's a wonderful, extraordinary, beautiful adventure about the incredible journey of one woman, and it's a compelling and inspiring film to boot. Adam Driver co-stars, but it's mostly all Wasikowska and her dogs and camels. The trailer features M83's "Outro" and is basically a recut of the first international trailer from last year, but I'm still happy to highlight this film. In my Tiff review I called it a "beautiful, beautiful film." Here's the latest theatrical trailer for John Curran's Tracks, originally from Yahoo: Starring Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre, Stoker) and Adam Driver ("Girls", Frances Ha, Inside Llewyn Davis »

The Best Film Scores of 2013

2 March 2014 12:07 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With every awards season comes a flood of “best of” compilations and top ten lists, but film scores can be tricky in that department. After all, different composers are operating on different levels, each one working toward a separate goal in his or her respective picture. Brian Tyler aims for something propulsive and heroic in Iron Man 3, while Saving Mr. Banks’ score apparently features Thomas Newman doing his best Thomas Newman impersonation. Lists can be tough when scores operate so independently of one another

So without further ado, I present my favorite film scores from 2013. Unranked:

Philomena – Alexandre Desplat

Saying Alexandre Desplat likes himself a mean waltz is like saying Johnny Depp likes himself a little eye makeup: they’re both gross understatements. Scoring Stephen Frears’ loose adaptation of Philomena Lee’s search for the son she was forced to give up at birth, Desplat makes his affinity abundantly clear with the title track, »

Where My Girls At? Chastain, Farmiga, Kidman, Bening

27 February 2014 8:52 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

And now another edition of "Where My Girls At?" which occurs whenever Nathaniel is longing for actresses who have temporarily gone missing. I'm focusing this one on the beauties we won't even be seeing at the Oscars this year. 

Jessica Chastain

Did you see this photo Jessica Chastain posted to her Facebook account?

She wrote:

That's a wrap for me on A Most Violent Year. Working with talent like Jc Chandor and Oscar Isaac are the reason I love my job. I'm a very lucky girl. xxjes

Somehow I hadn't clocked this new project but it's an 1980s NY set thriller (so that explains the look) about an immigrant (one presumes that's Isaac, who seems to symbolize any "foreign" element these days to Hollywood) trying to capitalize on business opportunities but beware of Violence! Decay! Corruption! I miss Jes, don't you? I know that's insane since I saw her live »

Jameson Empire Awards 2014 Nominations Led by The Hobbit, Captain Phillips & The Hunger Games

24 February 2014 7:10 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This year’s Jameson Empire Awards nominations have been announced, and they are easily the most diverse of the awards season, celebrating not just the critically-acclaimed movies recognised in the more formal ceremonies, but also those beloved by mainstream audiences, with the awards themselves voted for by us, the cinema-going public.

The awards continue to recognise more genre-friendly categories like Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Best Horror, and Best Thriller, with plenty of British talent recognised across the board, as well as in the Best British Film shortlist.

It’s also very nice to see filmmakers like Edgar Wright and Peter Jackson recognised for their work in the Best Director category, alongside Alfonso Cuarón, Paul Greengrass, and Steve McQueen, with Cuarón and McQueen also up for the same category at the Oscars.

Greengrass will be receiving the Empire Inspiration Award at the ceremony for his work on the Bourne trilogy and more recently the Oscar-nominated, »

'The Hobbit' and '12 Years a Slave' lead Empire Award nominations

24 February 2014 4:35 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Academy may have long ago lost interest in Peter Jackson's Middle Earth exploits, but the same cannot be said of the readers of UK film magazine Empire. With seven bids, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" leads the nominations for the 2014 Empire Awards, which are entirely reader-voted -- resulting in an unusual list made up equally of prestige Oscar contenders and populist multiplex fare. By way of illuistration, "12 Years a Slave" is just behind with six nods, while "Captain Phillips" and "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" each notched up five. Among the Oscar nominees that also impressed the Empire crowd are Amy Adams, Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong'o, Sally Hawkins and, of course, Jennifer Lawrence -- nominated for both "American Hustle" and "Catching Fire." You'll have noticed less awards-season heat for the likes of Evangeline Lilly and Sam Claflin, both included here. »
