14 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

After being spotted courtside at a Lakers game, Zac Efron and Neighbors co-star Halston Sage are reportedly officially a couple, but who is Efron's newest leading lady?

“They are definitely an item. They were seeing each other a bit during filming of their movie together and ever since he went to rehab they got a lot closer. Her friends love him and say he is so sweet. He’s really good to her,” a source told E! News, confirming the relationship.

Who Is Halston Sage?

Sage, 20, considers herself to be a writer and held the title of editor at her high school newspaper. Aside from writing, she also participated in competitive horse ridding for eight years. She also has a passion for books, music – she’s currently listening to country and Lorde – and 80’s movies: her favorite is About Last Night (1986) starring Rob Lowe and Demi Moore.

We Are The Best!'s Lukas Moodysson is cinema's eternal teenager

11 April 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Swedish director's new film about a teen girl punk band is a coming-of-age masterpiece, but he's keen to remain an outsider

If you happen to be a teenage girl looking to modern cinema for a role model, you're left with two options: live your life by the meaningless platitudes of vest-clad, stern-faced warrior types from a bleak dystopian future (The Hunger Games, Divergent), or dedicate your existence to grabbing money, fellating Uzis and drowning your brain cells with James Franco (Spring Breakers, The Bling Ring). Both of which sound exhausting and neither of which are going to help you get a B+ in German. However, 44-year-old cult Swedish director Lukas Moodysson is about to buck that trend. His new film, We Are The Best!, is a coming-of-age masterpiece which recalls the perceptive comedy of Shane Meadows's A Room For Romeo Brass and Rob Reiner's stirring representation of friendship in Stand By Me. »

'Party Girl' to get the party started in Un Certain Regard at Cannes

10 April 2014 11:29 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hard to believe that the Cannes Film Festival is just a month away -- before you know it, people will be cranking up the Oscar conversation again. The full lineup will be announced in Paris on April 17, but another nugget was revealed this morning. The opening film of the theoretically secondary, but increasingly prestigious, Un Certain Regard competition will be a French title: "Party Girl," the joint directorial debut of Marie Amacoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis. In recent years, Cannes has sometimes kicked off Ucr with a big-name auteur title: Gus Van Sant's "Restless" and, last year, Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" both took the slot, as a kind of compensation for the directors being demoted from the main Competition. The more left-field selection of "Party Girl," says the festival, is indicative of the section's mission to expose fresh talent. The film is a mix of fact and fiction, »

French Film ‘Party Girl’ To Open Cannes’ Un Certain Regard

10 April 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A year after Sofia Coppola's “The Bling Ring” opened the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival, the festival has chosen a French film whose title suggests a similar dynamic to open the section in 2014: “Party Girl.” But “Party Girl” isn't a look at celebrity-obsessed youth, the way Coppola's film was; instead, the first feature from directors Marie Amachoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis focuses on a 60-year-old nightclub hostess who marries a longtime client because she's afraid it's time to end her partying ways.

Film Review: ‘La Creme de la creme’

1 April 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In France, the slang term for pimp is “maquereau.” In Kim Chapiron’s “La Creme de la creme,” a group of super-competitive French business-school students get a lesson in what sounds like “macro economics,” starting a prostitution ring that pairs eager young women with their socially awkward classmates. Loosely inspired by true events, then given a high-fantasy Hollywood-style polish in the retelling, this hip pic should have no trouble seducing young auds in Gaul, but proves surprisingly tame for export (with very little nudity, despite the racy subject), where a more risque treatment might have paid serious dividends on VOD.

Considering the sexually uninhibited reputation French movies have abroad, a shrewd distributor might be able to bait-and-switch audiences into taking this for an edgier Bret Easton Ellis-style satire of self-destructive bright young things. Truth be told, the film already feels like the American remake of itself, boasting a super-pro, »

5 Sex Scenes That Traumatized Their Stars

1 April 2014 1:39 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Studio Canal

Since at least the 60s, mainstream pop culture has become a lot more accepting of sexual content, expanding dramatically from the simple days of passionate kisses to full-out buck-naked lovemaking. Regardless of what everyone’s personal views are, these scenes will only continue to be more common and nudity may even find itself in PG-13 someday.

Something that a lot of people may not think about, however, is the actors involved in those scenes. It may be common for moviegoers to simply blow-off the intensity involved in creating such a moment due to the fact that both attractive actors are “lucky” to see each other nude, but that often isn’t the case. The comfort in making simulated sex relies on a number of factors, primarily the mutual respect both actors feel when with each other and the director in charge of crafting it.

Unfortunately, things aren’t »

Is Emma Watson Preparing To Go Under The Sea For Sofia Coppola’s The Little Mermaid?

27 March 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley might be the newest It Girls in Hollywood, but Emma Watson has consistently been atop our list of dream best friends since we first met her on the Hogwarts Express. We’ve loved her in everything from the Harry Potter series that made her a star to 2013′s The Bling Ring, which proved she could tackle edgier material and master the now iconic cadence of a former reality star. Watson has grown to become one of the strongest young actresses around, as well as an effervescent style icon we’d love to meet for coffee. Or wine. Or manicures. Or whatever she has time for! Really, we’re not needy.

Watson currently stars in Noah, an iconic bible story re-imagined for the big screen, opposite Oscar winners Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly. While Darren Aronofsky‘s big-budget biblical adaptation deserves all the attention, we couldn »

Criterion Collection: The Great Beauty | Blu-ray Review

25 March 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

In Paolo Sorrentino’s lavishly received Italian crime potboiler Il Divo, the stage is set with a world building montage that places us in a blood-bathed Rome ruled by politically backed hit men, and finally settles in, dollies up, and asks it’s leading man, Toni Servillo giving his best dead-eyed Giulio Andreotti impression, to stare straight into the camera and speak directly on how others seem to perceive him. Bizarrely, The Great Beauty begins almost the exact same way, but this version of Rome is not one of physical violence and political intimidation, but one solely focused on aristocratic appearances and the reciprocation of surface relationships.

Servillo, this time living in the skin of a facetiously jaded, secretly sulking part-time journalist and eternal socialite named Jep Gambardella, is found standing in the midst of his own lavish 65th birthday party, once again staring into the camera, memories of what »

Movie News - Emma Watson Lands The Little Mermaid Lead

21 March 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Movie News - Will Emma Watson have the lead role in 'The Little Mermaid'. She will if the director of the movie has his way. The 'Harry Potter' actress is being sought after by the director Sofia Coppola, who she has worked with in the past on 'The Bling Ring', to play the aquatic creature in the upcoming live-action movie. A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Sofia wants Emma, and the pair have such a respect for each other, it would be very surprising if they carry on without each other. ''Movie companies Universal and Working Title want to move quickly on this so expect an announcement soon.'' Coppola had her sights on Hans Christian Andersen's tragic fairy tale as her next project after 2013's 'The Bling Ring', and will be bringing the classic children's story to life on the big screen.

Listen: Film Composer Brian Reitzell's "Last Summer" ft. Kevin Shields From His Debut Album 'Auto Music'

21 March 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Brian Reitzell has made a name for himself for over a decade by composing the scores to over a dozen different films, most of which have been independent features. He has collaborated with director Sofia Coppola on three films ("Virgin Suicides,” “Lost in Translation,” “The Bling Ring”) and he’s also worked on television shows such as “Boss” and “Hannibal.” Recently he’s been working on a solo album that will further showcase his talents, called Auto Music. The album will be his debut and once it gets released this summer, there will no doubt be more directors begging for him to work on their films. So what exactly can we expect from this album? Well, as Brian Reitzell said via a press release, “I wasn’t making a pop record. I was experimenting with sounds to further my knowledge for creating music for my film projects and exploring new ways to make music. »

Sofia Coppola to Direct The Little Mermaid

19 March 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Universal Pictures is currently in negotiations with Sofia Coppola to direct their live-action adaptation of the classic Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale The Little Mermaid. The movie is currently being rewritten by Caroline Thompson (Edward Scissorhands).

The story was published in 1837, but I know most of you are familiar with the Disney animated version. It is about a young mermaid who is willing to give up her life in the sea and her identity as a mermaid to gain a human soul and the love of a human prince.

Coppola is a talented director who has brought us films such as Lost in Translation, Somewhere, The Bling Ring, and Marie Antoinette. The Little Mermaid would be her biggest studio movie to date, and I think she's a solid choice to develop this story into a film.
