Kristen Stewart to Star in an Underwater Disaster Movie

22 February 2017 9:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Kristen Stewart has been on a roll lately as a prestigous actress of arthouse cinema. She was the first ever American actress to win a Cesar Award (the French Oscars) for her work in Clouds of Sils Maria and has been garnering stellar reviews for performances in such films as Still AliceCertain Women and Personal Shopper. But she hasn't fallen completely out of the mainstream genre fare she's most known for, occasionally showing up in, say, an action thriller like American Ultra (one of her many gigs opposite Jesse Eisenberg), and now she's about to be cast in her biggest movie since 2012, the year she finished up the Twilight saga and starred in Snow White and the Huntsman.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stewart...

Kristen Stewart Dives ‘Underwater’

22 February 2017 2:12 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ever since she wrapped up her work with the “Twilight” franchise, Kristen Stewart has gone pretty hard on arthouse and auteur fare, adding Olivier Assayas, Woody Allen, Drake Doremus, and Ang Lee to her Rolodex (that’s the old timey word for the contact list on your iPhone, kids). But she hasn’t entirely stepped away from blockbusters. There was “Snow White And The Huntsman” at Universal, and while she bowed out of the sequel, Stewart is heading over to 20th Century Fox for another movie that will bring her back to the multiplex.

Stewart rose to fame as the lead in the five-film “Twilight” franchise. Her credits include “Snow White and the Huntsman,” “On the Road,” “Still Alice,” “Equals,” and “Clouds of Sils Maria,” for which she won the César Award for best supporting actress, making her the first American actress to win a César.

With Funding From Universal, Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Looks for Reinvention

22 February 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Spielberg cleared the way for the latest iteration of DreamWorks Studios a year ago, shifting distribution from Disney to Universal and announcing new investment from Jeff Skoll’s Participant Media, Reliance Entertainment of India, and Entertainment One of Canada.

That financing influx, along with Spielberg’s unusual move to chip in $50 million of his own money and the adoption of a new name, Amblin Partners, signaled the start of an attempted reinvention of the company the renowned director founded nearly a quarter century ago with David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

With an additional equity investment last week from Universal (amounting to roughly a 4% stake in the new operation) Amblin Partners has its financial house in order. That makes 2017 the year the company needs to do the same with its creative house — delivering more hits more consistently than DreamWorks did in its spotty recent history.

The plan is for Amblin, »

The Latest 'Ghost in the Shell' Trailer Looks Like One of the Most Dazzling Movies of 2017

14 February 2017 7:06 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Pretty much anything is possible with visual effects these days. Giant, transforming robots are old hat at this point. The same goes for believable, talking animals and alien landscapes. When everything is a special effect, it becomes harder and hard for the effects to actually feel, well, special. So it's particularly noteworthy when we say, wow, Ghost in the Shell looks incredible.

Scarlett Johansson says a Black Widow movie is “just a case of timing at this point”

14 February 2017 6:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Scarlett Johansson is starting to make her way through the interview rounds for the upcoming live-action film adaptation of the popular manga/anime Ghost in the Shell, and naturally the actress was asked about the possibility – and potential – of a solo Black Widow movie.

Speaking to Total Film Magazine (via ComicBookMovie.com) Johansson stated: “We’re creatively really compatible. I think we both agree that the character is right for a standalone, it’s just a case of timing at this point for both Marvel and myself. If I did it, I would dedicate myself completely to making it amazing. It would have to be the best version that movie could possibly be. Otherwise, I would never do it. It needs its own style and its own story, and there’s a lot of great stuff that you could do with it.”

Many fans have long called for a Black Widow solo movie, »

Scarlett Johansson addresses Ghost in the Shell whitewashing accusations, new TV spot released

10 February 2017 2:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its release next month, a new TV spot has arrived online for Rupert Sanders’ highly-anticipated live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell, which you can check out below…

Meanwhile, during a recent interview with Marie Clare, star Scarlett Johansson addressed recent accusations of whitewashing aimed at the movie: “I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person. Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive. Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders.”
