'Assassin's Creed' Movie Finds Alicia Vikander's Replacement

24 June 2015 9:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

French actress Ariane Labed has signed on to join Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard in New Regency's video game adaptation Assassin's Creed. While no character details were given, the actress has landed the role that Alicia Vikander was once up for, before she was forced to drop out after landing a role in Universal's Bourne 5. The producers moved quickly to find a replacement, landing on Ariane Labed.

Michael Fassbender will star as a man who learns that he comes from a long line of assassins, after he is kidnapped by a clandestine organization which has ties to the Knights Templar. He is tasked with using his skills to travel back in time and recover important historical artifacts. There was a report that revealed Michael Fassbender is actually playing two characters in the adaptation, Michael Lynch in present day scenes, and an assassin named Aguilar de Agarorobo during scenes set in the Spanish Inquisition. »

'Assassin's Creed' Movie Adaptation Finds a Replacement for Alicia Vikander

24 June 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) was going to reunite with her The Light Between Oceans co-star Michael Fassbender in the film adaptation of the video game Assasin's Creed, but we learned only yesterday she will be unable to do so as she joined the cast of Bourne 5, which will be shooting at the same time. Well, it didn't take long for a replacement to be announced as Greek-born French actress Ariane Labed. Labed had a small role in Richard Linklater's Before Midnight during the dinner scene as shown above and starred in Yorgos Lanthimos' Alps in 2012 (pictured here) and made an impact in Cannes this year starring in Lanthimos' latest feature, The Lobster. There's still no word on which role Labed will be playing, but she joins not only Fassbender, but Marion Cotillard who is reuniting with both Fassbender and her Macbeth director Justin Kurzel for the film, which »

L.A. Film Festival Exclusive: Family Tension Explodes In Clip From 'Weepah Way For Now' With Aly And Aj Michalka

15 June 2015 7:36 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A younger generation of viewers likely know siblings Aly and Aj Michalka from the stints on Disney television, or as the musical duo 78violet, but the sisters have taken a confident step into the world of indie filmmaking with "Weepah Way For Now."

Arthouse Audit: Ghibli's 'When Marnie Was There' Best Opener, 'I'll See You in My Dreams' Expands Well

24 May 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

On most years, Memorial Day weekend launches the first or second weekends of several major specialized successes, such as "Before Midnight," "Moonrise Kingdom," "The Tree of Life," and "Midnight in Paris." Even last year saw the modest debut of "Words and Music" ($88,000 in 10 theaters). This year? The best of the openers was mid-level Studio Ghibli animated release "When Marnie Was There" (GKids). Second weekend "I'll See You in My Dreams" (Bleecker Street) expanded impressively, showing once again that older audiences will respond to a star-driven story. Other news this week was the confirmation that the New York Times' is continuing to cut back on their review coverage. This week, two they skipped -- Indian "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" and the VOD-showing "Chocolate City" --both actually managed decent results despite the slight.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s By The Sea Gets November Release Date

7 May 2015 4:20 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

While Angelina Jolie Pitt’s supposed first foray into awards fare as a director, Unbroken, was a bit disappointing, Universal Pictures is nevertheless bullish on her follow-up. The studio has given a prime awards season release date to By the Sea, slating the film for November 13, 2015. Competition is scarce on the pre-Hunger Games weekend, where Jolie Pitt’s film will square off against the Warner Bros. miners drama The 33, the horror reboot Rings, and the comedy Rock the Kasbah. Jolie Pitt started production on the drama By the Sea before Unbroken was released, rolling cameras in Malta last summer. She stars opposite husband Brad Pitt in the film as an American couple who arrive in a picturesque resort in 1970s France with their marriage in crisis. They subsequently spend time with fellow travelers and come to terms with unresolved issues in their own lives. The cast also includes Mélanie Laurent, »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Seymour: An Introduction – The Review

9 April 2015 10:52 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

You might assume that music takes center stage given the subject of Seymour, but Ethan Hawke’s look at the reclusive concert pianist is so much more. Composer Seymour Bernstein is the focus of Seymour: An Introduction. Like the title would suggest, we briefly get to know the journey of a man who studied piano, went over-seas to war, composed musical arrangements, and then suddenly stopped performing publicly due to crippling stage fright. But that is what’s so great about Hawke’s documentary debut. Like a classically trained pianist who effortlessly can glide his fingers across keys without a single misstep, Hawke guides the film across multiple subjects, bringing into question music’s true purpose, finding true happiness, and the pros and cons of becoming famous for your art.

Seymour Bernstein may be one of the greatest pianists in the world and yet most of us might not have »

Avengers: Age of Ultron: No Captain Marvel, and no post-credits scene

7 April 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Of all the rumours that have been floating around about Avengers: Age of Ultron, one of the most persistent has been the possible inclusion of Carol Danvers ahead of the Captain Marvel movie in 2018.

The speculation increased earlier this month when it was revealed that Julie Delpy (Before Midnight) and Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks) are set to appear in mystery roles (although they’re not a mystery any longer), but Marvel chief Kevin Feige has now ruled out an appearance, with the producer telling EW categorically that Captain Marvel will not feature in the film. Of course, there is the chance that he could be covering his tracks, but we’ll find out for sure in just a couple of weeks…

7 April 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week it was revealed that Julie Delpy (Before Midnight) and Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks) are set to feature in the cast of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now a Hungarian cast list has arrived online via the forums at Shh (via Cbm) which reveals who the two actresses are playing in the hotly-anticipated sequel.

'Avengers 2': Are One of These Actresses 'Captain Marvel'?

1 April 2015 4:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel is getting ready for the L.A. premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron in just a few weeks, with the studio sending out a media alert today that lists the cast members who have been confirmed to attend the red carpet event. Surprisingly, the list includes two actresses who have never been mentioned before as part of the cast, Linda Cardellini and Julie Delpy. Disney has confirmed that the actresses inclusion on the cast list was not a mistake, leading many to wonder if either of these actresses are playing Captain Marvel.

A report surfaced last week that Avengers: Age of Ultron will introduce Carol Danvers, to set up the character before her Captain Marvel movie hits theaters November 2, 2018. A few days later, that rumor was shot down by a "source close to the production," but we'll find out for sure in just a few weeks when Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters. »

What Exactly Are Julie Delpy And Linda Cardellini Doing In Avengers: Age Of Ultron?

1 April 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron has one of the most impressive principal ensembles we've ever seen, but apparently we've spent months not actually knowing the full extent of the roster. This is because both Julie Delpy (Before Midnight) and Linda Cardellini (Bloodline, Scooby Doo) have parts in the blockbuster, as has confirmed on a tip sheet for the feature's upcoming Los Angeles premiere. But what remains a total mystery is exactly who they might be playing in the movie. Given how late in the game the two actresses are entering into the bigger picture of Avengers 2, it's not hard to imagine that the extent of their parts in the film will be somewhat limited, but what's unknown and potentially exciting is the possible impact their roles could have on the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If we're really dreaming big, it's possible that either Julie Delpy »

Linda Cardellini and Julie Delpy are both in Avengers: Age of Ultron

1 April 2015 2:52 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Linda Cardellini and Julie Delpy apparently both appear in the upcoming Marvel epic Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The actresses' names have turned up on a cast list sent to the press in advance of the Avengers: Age of Ultron world premiere.

A spokesperson for Disney would only confirm that Cardellini and Delpy were intentionally mentioned on the premiere cast list, reports Slash Film.

French actress Delpy is a two-time Academy Award nominee for Before Sunset and Before Midnight, while Cardellini has most recently been seen in Netflix drama series Bloodline.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is Marvel's most star-studded film yet, with Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen uniting as the superhero team.

Writer-director Joss Whedon has also enlisted Marvel Studios veterans Don Cheadle, Paul Bettany, Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, Idris Elba, Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L Jackson for supporting roles. »

Julie Delpy and Linda Cardellini are in Avengers: Age of Ultron – Captain Marvel rumours true?

1 April 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Just when you thought the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron couldn’t get any bigger, two more names have been revealed.

The tip sheet for the world premiere of the movie has been sent out to the Us press and has revealed that Julie Delpy (Before Midnight) and Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks) are a part of the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast. They are at the end of the list so it’s likely they’re not large roles, but they’re important enough to mentioned.

Now, this could just be some speculation (this is the Internet after all), but this does tie into a report that we had earlier this month which suggested Marvel Studios had already cast its Captain Marvel and she would appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron. There was no word on who would play the character (or if it had even really been »

Our Favourite Fictional Bands: The School of Rock

8 March 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The School of Rock (School of Rock)

Say what you will about Boyhood and Before Midnight, but Richard Linklater’s most memorable legacy to this 2000s teen may be the lyrics to each and every fake song throughout School of Rock, from hearing how the Legend of the Rent was Way Hardcore to about the best parody of The Doors’ “Touch Me” you’re bound to hear. The film wouldn’t be nearly as good if the closing performance of The School of Rock wasn’t kind of great, and the kids throughout truly deliver. Chalk up another great musical capper for Jack Black, as well as just about the ideal closer to a blockbuster family comedy you could ask for.

Writers Guild of America predictions

12 February 2015 11:35 AM, PST | | See recent news »

This weekend, the last of the big precursors will announce their winners, essentially putting us into the final lap for Oscar. Also the final guild, the Writers Guild of America (or WGA) prize is notable for being the one place where oftentimes Academy Award nominees find themselves ineligible. The WGA has more stringent rules than most, so you’ll sometimes see excluded Oscar frontrunners, surprise nominations, and even this year differing category placement. It all makes for a hard precursor to predict, but a fascinating one to look at. Especially this weekend, they could have a bigger say than usual in terms of what the Academy winds up choosing in Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Screenplay. For comparison, last year we had a similar situation, where an ineligible made things interesting. That one was 12 Years a Slave, which wasn’t able to win Adapted with the WGA, so it went to Captain Phillips, »

Does ‘Birdman’ DGA Win Mean “Game Over” For Other Oscar Hopefuls?

8 February 2015 2:28 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Yes, Birdman is for real. If there was any lingering doubt that industry awards voters are dead serious about honoring a movie that is about a lot of things but especially about themselves, the DGA’s top honor erased those questions. Now after triumphing at the PGA, winning the SAG Ensemble Cast prize and DGA Directorial Achievement Award for Alejandro G. Inarritu this movie has flown past the competition and left what was thought to be a front runner, Boyhood, in its dust. It’s an important moment for the film as its victory occurred on the very weekend Oscar balloting begins.

The Boyhood momentum was created by critics and pundits based on its sweep through the critics portion of the season where it pulled a Social Network by winning everything right thru the Golden Globes for 2010, only to be trounced by The King’s Speech once the Guild prizes started rolling in. »
