Robert Pattinson’s career makeover is going… reasonably. Even before the “Twillight” series wrapped up, he was making an admirable move to work with people like David Cronenberg. Since it finished, he’s doubled-down on that, with “The Rover” and “Maps To The Stars” following in quick succession last year, and both proving pretty good, if a little divisive (he’s very good in the former, a bit forgettable in the latter). This year, Pattinson appeared in Werner Herzog’s “Queen Of The Desert,” and also has “Life” coming up for Anton Corbijn, with each movie premiering at Berlin. Verdicts on both were a bit muted, but we’re definitely more intrigued by the second, which follows the relationship between Life Magazine photographer Dennis Stock (Pattinson) and the legendary, ill-fated movie star James Dean (Dane DeHaan).

Directed by Sean Baker
Director Sean Baker (Starlet, Prince of Broadway, Take Out) was reportedly inspired to make Tangerine, after observing the customers of a donut shop in Hollywood’s red-light district. Tangerine’s stars are a pair of first-time actresses, Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor. They play two trans sex workers – Sin-Dee, who’s just been released from a 28-day stint in prison for drug possession – and her best friend Alexandra who prepares for a gig singing at a local nightclub. The film follows the duo over the course of a day – opening on a donut shop which serves as one of the key locations the two transitioning male-to-female call girls hang out. It’s the morning of Christmas Eve at the sketchy intersection of Santa Monica and Highland in Los Angeles and Alexandra and Sin-Dee are sharing a red-and-green sprinkled donut. »
Field revealed his plans on Facebook, prompting numerous offers of help from colleagues and friends of the much-loved actor who died in 2011, aged 71.
Close buddies for more than 25 years, Hunter and Field often discussed co-writing a book but never got around to it.
.We were having too much fun,. Field tells If. He may use the title suggested by Hunter, which trades on one of the actor's favourite expressions, .Stand Where and Say What?.
Field first met Hunter, whose credits include Newsfront, Gallipoli, Strictly Ballroom, Muriel's Wedding, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert, Road to Nhill, Crackerjack, The Pacific and The Cup, at the Belvoir Theatre.
They worked together twice, in Laurie McInnes. 1993 black-and-white drama Broken Highway and in Alkinos Tsilimidos.s 2004 film Tom White, which starred Colin Friels as an architect whose life unravels after a nervous breakdown. »

Greek distributors and exhibitors face uncertainty as the country’s financial future hangs in the balance.
As the future of Greece in the Eurozone and the EU itself acquires ever more dramatic dimensions, local distributors are bracing for the worst. Contracts signed with international sales agents are being closely scrutinised to decide whether renegotiations are possible in cases of need.
According to Rosebud 21’s Zinos Panagiotides, who consulted with other key distribution outlets such Odeon, Feelgood Entertainment and Spentzos before speaking to ScreenDaily, the distribution market will remain under control through mid-August in spite of the dramatic decline in admissions since the start of the year.
Industry forecasts for 10 million admissions for 2014-15 (an increase from under 9 million the previous three years) have been shelved in the wake of the current crisis.
While 70,000-80,000 admissions are an average for Greek weekends, this figure plummeted 47,000 in the first weekend of July, as the crisis »

The full trailer for Werner Herzog’s “Queen of the Desert” is here, which means Robert Pattinson fans need to go ahead and push play to catch a longer glimpse at his T.E. Lawrence impression. But don’t expect him to be the one swinging with the swoons in “Queen” because the romantic spotlight has actually gone instead to Nicole Kidman and James Franco (and sort of Damian Lewis, too). The pair portray Gertrude Bell and her lover, and while Franco might be the multi-hyphenate Irl, it’s her character that does all the things in the movie, including writing, archaeology, exploring, cartography, an . »

The latest film from iconic German filmmaker Werner Herzog chronicles the traveller's exploration of Bedouin communities in the Middle East at the turn of the 20th century.
Throughout her journey, she charms historic figures like archaeologist Te Lawrence (Robert Pattinson), the politician Henry Cadogan (James Franco) and military leader Charles Doughty-Wylie (Damian Lewis).
Herzog wrote the sweeping epic, before shooting it on location in both Morocco and Jordan.
Queen of the Desert had a high-profile screening earlier in 2015 as part of the 65th Berlin International Film Festival.
The film will open in the Us on September 15. A UK release is yet to be confirmed. »
The film tells the story of Gertrude Bell (1868-1926) who, as historian, novelist and member of the British secret service, played a decisive role around 1920 in setting the course for the new political order in the Middle East. As an educated young woman, for whom no suitable husband can be found in England, she journeys to Tehran. After a tragic love affair with diplomat and inveterate gambler Henry Cadogan, she decides to give up on her private life and discover the region as an explorer. Before the backdrop of the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire she learns languages, translates literature, meets with Muslim dignitaries in Cairo, Basra and Baghdad and earns their trust through her pluck and respect. »

Nicole Kidman is featured in all her glory as Gertrude Bell in a new trailer for Werner Herzog’s “Queen of the Desert,” a sweeping film about the early 20th century explorer who helped redraw the map of the Middle East following World War I. The emphasis in this clip is on sweep. Robert Pattinson plays Lawrence, Damian Lewis plays Charles Doughty-Wylie and James Franco plays Henry Cadogan. ...Read More »
The gender gap in Hollywood may be something that is only now being openly discussed, but it has never really been much of a secret. While progress can be seen, slowly creeping into many genres, it is perhaps the biopic that seems to be desperately clinging on to an unconscious love of white men. Every year, we are bombarded with tales of heroic, interesting and complex men – towering historical figures that have shaped and influenced the world we live in. In fact, if you drew your information from cinema only, you could be forgiven for believing that women have contributed very little – such is the extent of erasure on display. You might even get quite excited about the latest film from writer-director Werner Herzog, titled Queen Of The Desert.
Starring Nicole Kidman, the film tells the story of Gertrude Bell, and her fascinating life spent travelling and working as a »

After several documentaries, Werner Herzog returns to narrative features this year with Queen of the Desert. Nicole Kidman stars as Gertrude Bell, an English explorer sometimes described as the “female Lawrence of Arabia.” Along with the male Lawrence of Arabia (played here by Robert Pattinson), she helped shape the Middle East region as we know […]

Similar to today's movies, even the trailers for them are getting too long as domestic distributor Atlas Distribution has released a three-plus minute trailer for Werner Herzog's new movie Queen of the Desert starring Nicole Kidman as historian, novelist and member of the British secret service, Gertrude Bell, who played a decisive role around 1920 in setting the course for the new political order in the Middle East. Along with Kidman, the film co-stars Robert Pattinson, Damian Lewis and James Franco and as of right now does not have a planned release date as I expect Atlas will try and screen it at a couple of the upcoming Fall festivals before deciding where to ultimately place it.

Say what you like about Ashton Kutcher's Jobs movie, but it did hold one ace up its sleeve that the Danny Boyle-directed biopic doesn't - an actor who actually resembles the character they're playing.
We take a look at a handful of stars who don't look anything like the real-life people they played.
As brilliant an actor as the Shame star is, it's clear from the trailers for Danny Boyle's biopic that little has been done to make Fassbender look like the man he's portraying. Ashton Kutcher has him beat in that department (as does Noah Wyle if you go all the way back to Pirates of Silicon Valley), but with the talent involved here we're expecting Steve Jobs to be a cut above Jobs.
Intriguingly, prior to Fassbender's casting Christian Bale was circling the role before bowing out due to worries »
Nicole Kidman could have taken her career in a number of different directions, but after dipping her toe in some studio misfires in the mid-2000's she continues to make daring choices that many other actors with her notoriety would shy away from. In the past two years she's starred in the polarizing "Stoker," the art house hit "The Railway Man," took on "Grace of Monaco" (a film that had a dramatically different original screenplay), made kids tremble as the villain in the family blockbuster "Paddington" and played Gertrude Bell in Werner Herzog's "Queen of the Desert" which debuted at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival. But, wait. There's more. Kidman has already finished shooting the big screen adaptation of "Lion," has a significant role in Billy Ray's remake of "The Secret in Their Eyes" and stars opposite Jason Bateman in his highly anticipated drama "The Family Fang" (which has »

You may have just drooled over those recent Matt Bomer shirtless pictures, but come Friday, you'll get to see him take it off - take it all off yet again - in the sequel Magic Mike Xxl. I visited the set last year with a few other reporters, and when we chatted with Bomer, we made sure to find out if his character, Ken, would be talking this time around - you know, more than one line. The sexy star opened up about what else we'll learn about his character, as well as the unlikely movie he compares this one too. Check out Bomer's interview, then find out what Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello had to say on the set. Considering your character, Ken, doesn't have many lines in the first Magic Mike, how much more will we hear you speak this time? "Well, I mean, more, but it is »
