And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

He’s been tapped as “the next Tom Hardy” but Jack O’Connell is storming out on his own in his rise from UK TV star to in-demand lead actor.

After turning heads in Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and tough prison drama Starred Up, O’Connell is running for his life in the historical thriller ’71.  O’Connell stars as Gary, a British soldier who inadvertently gets left behind by his patrol unit on the streets of Belfast during a deadly riot.  Left on his own, the young Gary must navigate the dangerous streets in an attempt to make it back to his base alive.

The film was released earlier in the UK and Ireland earning several accolades at the British Independent Film Awards including Best British Independent Film and Best Actor, as well as BAFTA nominations in the screenplay and Best British Film categories.

2016 Oscar Predictions: Early Look at 43 Movies Vying for Best Picture

9 March 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As always, March is too early to get any kind of firm grasp on what will or won't be an Oscar contender come the end of the year, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun to speculate. Last year, only two of the nine films I predicted out of the gates actually ended up receiving Best Picture nominations at the 2015 Oscars -- Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel -- which goes to show just how much we know in advance. In fact, looking at the films I had on the outside looking in, only Best Picture winner Birdman was listed. But hey, at least I had three of the top contenders in the early year conversation, that's something... rightc When it comes to this year, I feel even less certain than I did last year. I'm not sure that's saying a whole lot since only two of the 43 films on »

Giancarlo Esposito, George Clooney & Julia Roberts All Set For Thriller, Money Monster

6 March 2015 1:43 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jodie Foster has started production on her new film as director, the hostage thriller Money Monster. According to Deadline, it’s about what happens when a TV financial pundit and stock tip advisor is held at gunpoint, and the captor threatens to kill him if the broadcast is stopped. This means the whole world gets to watch as the stand-off plays out.

Clooney is playing the victim; Roberts is the producer of his show – also called Money Monster – and apparently a love interest; now Giancarlo Esposito is joining in as the NYPD lead office in charge of defusing the situation.

Also in the cast are Christopher Denham, Caitriona Balfe and Jack O’Connell as the gunman.

Without wanting to give too much away, there’s a lot in Money Monster that hits a nerve. It’s a topical story, and would probably pass for satirical too if it were less about tension and suspense. »

Giancarlo Esposito, known by Breaking Bad fans as the villainous Gus Fring, is continuing his transition into big-screen features with TriStar’s next star-studded drama. Directed by Jodie Foster, Money Monster has slowly been collecting A-listers to populate what’s expected to be a serious awards contender.

Written by Jim Kouf, Alan Difiore and Jamie Linden, the film delves into the world of insider trading through gregarious television personality Lee Gates (George Clooney). On his show, Money Monster, he offers stock market hints and tips to members of the public and miscalculates an estimate – causing stock to plummet. One member of the public whom is extremely dissatisfied with Gates’ behavior storms the TV studio with a gun in tow. The disgruntled man, Kyle Budwell – thought to be played by Unbroken‘s Jack O’Connell – holds Gates at gunpoint, demanding that he enforce a profitable stock rise by the end of the day, »
