Cannes - Entrepreneurs are looking to put Romania's capital Bucharest on the map as a production center in Eastern Europe. Bobby Paunescu and Jared Underwood’s Solar Entertainment Group has struck a partnership with real estate entrepreneur Dragos Savulescu to form production studio operator Solar Studios. The group will combine a film facility formerly known as Kentauros Studios, which Savulescu recently acquired, and Paunescu’s Mandragora Studios, the partners said in making the announcement in Cannes on Monday.

For decades its conspicuous excess dazzled the world, but film-makers are increasingly turning to television to show off their wares
When Carey Mulligan ditches the Tiffany spangles and Prada sequins of The Great Gatsby, in favour of a baggy jumper and the dingy folk music venues she favours in her role in the new Coen brothers film, Inside Llewyn Davis, it could be seen as a comment on this year's Cannes film festival.
Playing the unfussy singer Jean Berkey straight after her bejewelled portrayal of Daisy Buchanan, the actress appeared to have deliberately cast off the baubles and artifice that hang around the annual 12-day cinematic bonanza on the Côte D'Azur. And this year, the festival's 66th outing on Boulevard de la Croisette, the glittery trappings have strained more than ever to deliver the glamour the waiting world expects.
Conspicuous excess is de rigueur at Cannes and visiting stars fail to dazzle at their peril. »

Cannes Film Festival 2013 highlight? (Photo: Bérénice Bejo, Tahar Rahim in Asghar Farhadi’s The Past) So far, what’s the most memorable event at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival? Perhaps the screening of Asghar Farhadi’s Palme d’Or competitor The Past, starring The Artist‘s Bérénice Bejo (replacing Marion Cotillard) and A Prophet‘s Tahar Rahim? Variety‘s Justin Chang called Farhadi’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning A Separation "an exquisitely sculpted family melodrama in which the end of a marriage is merely the beginning of something else, an indelible tapestry of carefully engineered revelations and deeper human truths." (Scroll down to check out The Bling Ring cast Cannes 2013 photos.) Or perhaps Joel and Ethan Coen’s Inside Llewyn Davies, which impressed The Independent film critic Geoffrey Macnab with "the sure-footed way the Coens combine comedy, music and brooding film noir elements"? Or maybe the fact that Carey Mulligan had »

In her new film, The Bling Ring, she gets Emma Waston to swing around the upright. Indeed, in many of her films, there is a pole-dancing scene. Is it something to do with alienation?
It's the old distraction one-two, known in Hollywood as sexposition: if you've got a boring dialogue sequence – two cops yakking about a case, maybe – stick it in a strip club, where the sight of cavorting female flesh will cover up your thimble-brained story's deficiencies. Pole-dancing on screen is also becoming bit of a rite of passage for your classy, upscale actress (see Natalie Portman in Closer). But quite why film director-cum-fashionista Sofia Coppola should be so fascinated – even obsessed – is less clear.

Eva Longoria flashed the cameras at the 2013 Cannes Film festival, hiking up her gown to accidentally show she was wearing no panties underneath while navigating the red carpet in the rain in France. Longoria walked the red carpet at the 66th Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of Jimmy P. Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian in the rain and while trying to keep her dress from getting wet, she lifted on the bottom of the dress by her thigh high slit and hiked it up a bit too far and a quick snapping cameraman got the photo. That's Eva above in the same dress - the Nsfw photos of Eva's no panties flash are here at Moe Jackson. Eva is wearing Atelier Versace. Fashion is a big part of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and earlier this week, Emma Watson dazzled at the 'The Bling Ring' premiere. The 23-year-old »
You all know what I've been watching and I'm about to head out the door to go see Seduced and Abandoned and Blood Ties, but if you haven't had a chance to check out all the reviews yet, here's a recap of what I've seen here in Cannes so far: Heli (dir. Amat Escalante) read the review Jeune & Jolie (dir. Fran?ois Ozon) read the review The Bling Ring (dir. Sofia Coppola) read the review Fruitvale Station (dir. Ryan Coogler) read the review The Congress (dir. Ari Folman) read the review The Past (dir. Asghar Farhadi) read the review Jimmy P. (dir.

The Bling Ring, 2013.
Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the internet to track celebrities' whereabouts in order to rob their homes.
After Sofia Coppola justly earned plaudits for The Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation, a lot of good will remained for the less successful Marie Antoinette and, despite garnering the coveted Golden Lion in Venice, for the frankly mediocre and at times racist Somewhere. That good will may have come to an end.
The Bling Ring tells the true and sorry tale of a group of Hollywood teens eager to purloin the riches of the rich in order to live the Us dream. It all starts with young Mark (Israel Broussard) attending a high school for drop outs, where he is befriended by the »

I didn’t particularly enjoy Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring. I found it misguided, confused and a little too insistent for its own good, and the central message of the film was lost entirely, despite veiled aspirations to make some judgement at various points throughout the film.
The film is riddled with problems, from top to bottom, and though there is some perverse pleasure in watching this band of grotesques, as one would enjoy the vaguely entertaining disgust of a sideshow, the overall
Oh, and Emma Watson is not one of the problems. She is something of a revelation, despite the slight problems with her accent early on, and she quickly becomes the most interesting character thanks to the openly comical way she is presented by the end. Plus, she is absolutely gorgeous, and suits the air-headed dolly girl model of the character, while retaining some venom behind those pretty eyes. »

Nicole Kidman is here in Cannes, so is Ang Lee, and Audrey Tautou, and a second-generation Jagger, and Justin Timberlake, and Cindy Crawford, and Cheryl Cole, and Pelé, and all of them have been rained on, stubbornly, for days. Rain at Cannes used to be rare, regulars say. Russell Crowe has an anecdote about sitting in a screening wearing sodden zip-ups back in 1991, and Bruce Willis got splashed by a freak wave in 2006 – but for a couple of decades straight, at least, this festival was a dry deal, screenings and parties staged outdoors, everyone "cooked to a turn" (as F Scott Fitzgerald described the local way of sunbathing). Then last year the roof of the Soixantième theatre blew off. »

Send the Marine!
Cannes has a great tradition of introducing new sex symbols to the world. Following in the dainty footsteps of Bardot, Deneuve and Paradis comes Marine Vacth (as in "pact"), whose performance in François Ozon's Jeune et Jolie had everyone asking, "Who's that girl?" In the film, she plays a gamine, bourgeois 17-year-old who suddenly takes up prostitution. Vacth followed Kate Moss as the face of Ysl perfume La Parisienne having been discovered in a branch of H&M when she was 15. When she did her first undressed shoot, her lorry-driver father sued the magazine and won. In her first-ever English interview, she told me: "My parents now leave me to do what I want. They haven't seen this film yet. But there's nothing they can do about it now. »

Joel and Ethan Coen have never made a movie that didn’t have at least a few big bubbles of perversity percolating through it. That said, one of the ways that I divide their work in my mind is that there are the Coen brothers films in which the perversity stays, for the most part, just below the surface (Blood Simple, Fargo, A Serious Man), which tend to be the Coen brothers movies that I love best. And there are the ones in which perversity stands up and pokes you in the eye (Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, O Brother, »

Emma Watson enjoyed her first trip to the Cannes Film Festival this week for Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" debut and looked quite beautiful as she walked the red carpet with her director and co-stars Taissa Fariga and Katie Chang. While at the event, which marked just her second festival yet, Watson was asked to speak about the series that has defined her career until "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" (that would be "Harry Potter," in case it wasn't obvious) ... and, according to her, that franchise is a thing of the way distant past. View slideshow: Emma Watson hits Cannes for 'The Bling Ring' Speaking to The Guardian, she said, "'Harry Potter' feels like such a long time ago; so much has happened in the last three or four years, but obviously it's still very present, it's still being played in people's living rooms." Watson quickly »

"It seemed like something somebody would make up," author Nancy Jo Sales says on the phone from her New York home. "If you had pitched this as a movie, nobody would've bought it. It would've been too unbelievable." But the story of a bunch of young suburbanites who burglarized a string of celebrity homes in 2008 and '09 did happen. And somebody did buy it — director Sofia Coppola, whose upcoming film "The Bling Ring" (out June 14) is inspired by the Hollywood crime spree. It's also the subject of Sales' new book, likewise titled "The Bling Ring."
Coppola hired Sales as a consultant on the film after optioning her 2010 Vanity Fair article, "The Suspects Wore Louboutins." Realizing she had enough material on the case for a book, Sales started writing "The Bling Ring" last summer. It hits bookstores next week.
How much do you really get to know a college from an official tour? The pervading opinion is not a lot. But in new film Middleton, a campus visit leads two starkly different parents to get to know themselves – and each other – as they wander off from the tour group.
Shot in eastern Washington at Gonzaga University and Washington State University, Middleton had its world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival on Friday night. The film, which takes place all in one day at the titular fictional school, stars Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia as the parents who meet on the college tour. »

If you had gone to see every single one of the acclaimed movies from Iran that have played in the U.S. since the mid-’90s — the lyrically subdued Abbas Kiarostami films, like Through the Olive Trees and Taste of Cherry, that were hailed at the time as minimalist masterpieces; the feminist political parable The Circle; scrappy fables like The White Balloon, Children of Heaven, and A Time for Drunken Horses; the enchantingly colorful woven rug of a movie Gabbeh — it would be perfectly reasonable for you to come away from that experience thinking that Iran is a land of »

Emma Watson sat down with THR the day after the Cannes premiere of The Bling Ring, Sofia Coppola's film, in which she plays one of a group of high schoolers who steal from celebrities' homes. After joking about the strange coincidence that a Chopard employee's hotel room had been broken into and more than $1 million worth of jewels had been stolen from it in the hours after the premiere, Watson spoke about her experience making the film and on the red carpet at Cannes, only the second film festival she has ever attended.
