Ever since singer-songwriter Frank Ocean’s widely acclaimed debut “Channel Orange” back in 2012, fans have been clamoring for a new album. Four years have gone by and Ocean has remained mostly silent, releasing small snippets or hinting at an album entitled “Boys Don’t Cry.” But on August 1st, an endless live stream surfaced featuring Ocean woodworking and playing instruments. It was revealed yesterday that it was instead promotion for a 45-minute long visual album “Endless.” It is different than the teased album “Boys Don’t Cry,” and it’s rumored that Ocean will release another album this weekend but under a different time.

Watch: Sofia Coppola’s First Film ‘Lick the Star’ Flirts With Cliques, Punk Music and Growing Up

28 June 2016 3:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One year before “The Virgin Suicides” and four before “Lost in Translation,” Sofia Coppola moved away from an acting career she never wanted to have to telling her first stories as a director. Her 1998 film “Lick the Star” shows off the type of visual storytelling Coppola would come to make for herself: The slow-motion jump cuts, stylized performances and pitch-perfect choice of punk music.

American Honey [Cannes 2016]

15 May 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With every new Shia Labeouf movie, I wonder whether it would be more entertaining to see the film or watch Labeouf as he watches it. American Honey wasn’t on the bill when the former Transformers actor did a masochistic marathon of his filmography, but if he were to do another, this punishing and monotonous 165 minute-movie might be the one to make him snap.

Labeouf plays a James Franco-lite in the film, and director Andrea Arnold (Fish Tank) also seems to be emulating Spring BreakersHarmony Korine. In many ways, American Honey is like Gummo without the absurdist humor and Spring Breakers without the hallucinatory lyricism. It’s Kids for the post-subprime mortgage crisis generation.

Along with films like The Bling Ring, Dope, and Spring Breakers, there have been quite a few recent movies that use teenagers as a means to interrogate American capitalism – who it’s for, what »

6 Ways Emma Watson Is Adult Hermione Granger - MTV

20 April 2016 7:44 PM, PDT | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

Unlike most thespians her age (or any age, for that matter), Emma Watson’s very first turn as a proper ~actress~ landed her instant icon status. As Harry Potter’s brainy best friend Hermione Grainger, we grew up alongside her — even now, on her 26th birthday, Watson remains as beloved by fans as ever. Because although Watson’s done her darndest to shift the narrative of her career since wrapping the final Harry Potter installment with roles in adult films like The Bling Ring and This Is The End, in her real life, she embodies the exact traits (intelligence, compassion, altruism) that a grownup Hermione would have today. How so? Let us count the ways. »

Happy Birthday, Emma Watson!

15 April 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

A happiest of birthdays to former blockbuster youngster and now indie starlet Emma Watson! In one of the most charming bits of movie programming serendipity, her new film Colonia is also being released today.

Colonia debuted at last fall's Toronto Film Festival, and is now in select theatres and on VOD. Set during the factual Chilean military uprising in 1973, the film stars Watson as a young woman going undercover within a cult to rescue her lover (Daniel Brühl) from its terrifying captivity. The film looks to deliver morbid thrills against a political background, with Michael Nyqist's variation on an actual cult leader looking like the stuff of nightmares.

While Watson is still beloved by Harry Potter fans for her long-haul performance as Hermione Granger, her post-franchise work in smaller films has steadily shown new shades to the actress. Her best work yet is her turn in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, »

30 March 2016 7:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having departed Universal’s planned live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid, it looks like Sofia Coppola has found her next project, with The Tracking Board reporting that the director is set to remake the 1971 drama The Beguiled.

Directed by Don Siegel from Thomas P. Cullian’s Southern Gothic novel and starring Clint Eastwood, The Beguiled is set during the Civil War and takes place in an all-female Confederate boarding school, which takes in an injured Union soldier to help him recover. As he cons his way into their hearts, tensions rise as the women vie for his attention.

The site reports that Nicole Kidman will play the Head Mistress Martha Farnsworth, with Kirsten Dunst set to appear as a teacher and Elle Fanning a student. It’s said that the producers are searching for “a Chris Pratt type” for the Clint Eastwood role.

Coppola Remaking Eastwood's "Beguiled"

29 March 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following her backing away from the Chloe Moretz-led live-action "The Little Mermaid," Sofia Coppola has found her next film - she'll write and direct a new take on the 1971 Clint Eastwood-led period drama "The Beguiled".

Based on Thomas P. Cullinan's Southern Gothic novel and set at the end of the U.S. civil war, the original Don Siegel-directed film followed an injured Yankee soldier rescued from death by a young student at an all-girl boarding school in Louisiana.

At first the all-female staff and pupils are scared, but as he starts to recover he charms them one by one and the sexually repressed atmosphere becomes filled with jealousy and deceit. He soon gets his comeuppance in a quite painful way.

Elle Fanning is on board to play a student, Nicole Kidman will play the head mistress, and Kirsten Dunst to play one of the instructors. The key »

Women in Film: Janet Grillo Tackles Autism in Her New Film 'Jack of the Red Hearts'

29 February 2016 2:43 PM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

The origin of this project goes as far back in our women's collective memory to the time in the late 80s when Janet Grillo was head of Acquisitions for New Line Cinema and Sara Risher was head of production. I was buying features for Lorimar or Republic Pictures. We did not know at that time that one day, after Janet had completed her directorial debut, the lovely and loving film "Fly Away," that Sara would tell a certain writer-producer. to show her script to Janet as a possible director.

Janet liked it and together they developed it further at L.A. Film Independent. They then won the PGA Script Award. They hired an 18-year-old who had been a child actress and was a Nyu Freshman just finishing a TV Career. She agreed to star in January and the film was shot the following May 2014.

It premiered in Geena Davis’ Inaugural 2015 Bentonville Film Festival in May 2015 where it won the Jury Geena Davis’ new effort to celebrate the work of women and diverse voices in media also is the only festival to guarantee distribution for its winners’ project.

“The goal of the festival is not just to showcase women and diversity—it’s to really have a proactive and powerful effect on the industry,” says Davis, Bff co-founder and founder and chair of the nonprofit Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. “We’re intent on being extremely proactive in showing the films that include women and that are very commercial. Our goal is to show that this is the direction in which things are heading and we should get there sooner.”

"Jack of the Red Hearts” has now arrived in theaters nationwide as of February 26, 2016. "Jack of the Red Hearts”. Arc Entertainment and Trent Drinkwaer who founded the Bentonville Film Festival with Geena guarantees a minimum of one week in AMC theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Mimai, Minneapolis, Orlando, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa and Washington D.C.

On its opening night, Thursday, February 25, Geena Davis, Famke Janssen, Phyllis Nagy (writer, “Carol”), Catherine Hardwicke (director, “Twilight ”) and Danielle Carrig (Svp Lifetime) joined "Jack of the Red Hearts” director Janet Grillo, producer Lucy Mukerjee-Brown and writer Jennifer Deaton for a special screening of the film and Q&A at the YouTube Space in L.A. In conjunction with Broad Focus, Lifetime, the Genna Davis Institute on Gender in Media and the Bentonville Film Festival, the Q&A, moderated by the Wrap’s Sharon Waxman, will begin immediately followed the 7pm screening.

It will play on Lifetime April 20 which is Autism Awareness Month. It will show again at Bentonville Film Festival’s second edition May 3 - 8 of this year.

Bentonville’s strong affiliation with Walmart, the only vendor and the largest still selling DVDs will release it in its stores and on its VOD site.

Anna Sophia Robb portrays “Jack,” a tough teenage runaway on the lam from her parole officer. The conniving street kid brazenly impersonates a trained caregiver and forms a unique bond with an 11 year-old autistic girl named Glory, brilliantly played by newcomer Taylor Richardson. Famke Janssen, as the child's desperate mother Kay, also bonds with the imposter, as a surrogate daughter she can actually talk to. And the girl’s cute older brother Robert (Israel Broussard) falls in love. When the deception is exposed and the cops descend, loving father Mark (Scott Cohen) struggles to hold his family together as the pieces of this puzzle are reshuffled into a new, satisfying whole.

"Jack of the Red Hearts” is directed by Janet Grillo (writer/director of “Fly Away” and executive producer of Emmy®-winning “Autism: The Musical”) and written by Jennifer Deaton. Both have strong ties to the autism community as Grillo is mother to a child on the autism spectrum and Deaton is aunt to a child on the spectrum. The producers are Stefan Nowicki, Joey Carey, Lucy Mukerjee-Brown, and Morgan White.

The film stars AnnaSophia Robb (“The Carrie Diaries,” “Soul Surfer”), Famke Janssen (“X-Men”), Scott Cohen (“One Life to Live”), Taylor Richardson (“Annie”), Israel Broussard (“The Bling Ring”) and John D’Leo (“Unbroken”).
