Venice 2014: Get ready for buzzworthy 'Birdman,' Andrew Garfield and Al Pacino

4 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As previously reported by my HitFix colleagues, 2014’s fall festivals represent something of a battle royale for various heavyweight Oscar hopefuls. The oldest fest in the big four, venerable Venice, is up against younger Us counterparts Toronto, Telluride and New York in the perennial fight to deliver a truly memorable Competition. Which films will be left standing once the critics have had their way with them? Contenders hoping to emerge victorious from La Biennale’s royal rumble include Alejandro González Iñárritu’s opening nighter "Birdman" starring Michael Keaton, David Gordon Green’s Al Pacino vehicle "Manglehorn" and Andrew Garfield vs Michael Shannon in Ramin Bahrani’s real estate showdown "99 Homes." As far as awards season goes, for me the big hitter to beat from Cannes is "Foxcatcher," an extraordinary and illuminating piece of filmmaking from Bennett Miller, a director I’ve not been personally persuaded by before now.

Dakota Johnson Makes “A Bigger Splash” Than Margot Robbie; Guadagnino Finally Starts Lensing

30 July 2014 8:10 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

He slayed international auds with I Am Love, and now it would appear that Luca Guadagnino is finally moving back into feature films (docs and shorts preoccupied his output during this time) with A Bigger Splash. Joining the set troop of Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes is Dakota Johnson, who obviously brings some sales wattage to the project due to not her bit part beginnings a la For Ellen, but because of her Fifty Shades of Grey office girl. The actress will take over the seductress role that would have been assigned to Margot Robbie // technically the part that Jane Birkin played in the original 1969 Jacques Deray film. Shooting starts next month in Italy.

Gist: Written by David Kajganich and based on the 1969 title La Piscine, the story revolves around an uneasy triangle that forms between a couple and a younger woman during the couple’s vacation, leading to a sinister end. »

Venice Film Festival Lineup Announced; Includes Birdman And Manglehorn

24 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This morning in Rome, Biennale president Paolo Baratta and Venice Film Festival chief Alberto Barbera unveiled the lineup for the 71st Venice Film Festival, which features some extraordinarily exciting titles and intriguingly under-the-radar picks.

Twenty films will be competing in the main competition, 19 of which are world premieres with one international premiere out of the lot. Out of all the titles at Venice this year, Birdman, which stars Michael Keaton and features a star-studded cast including Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts, is undoubtedly the title with the most chance of gaining Oscar attention this year after making the rounds on the festival circuit (it’s heading to the Toronto International Film Festival next).

Also anticipated are Manglehorn, a collaboration between Prince Avalanche helmer David Gordon Green and Al Pacino, and Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill, with Ethan Hawke, Bruce Greenwood, January Jones and Zoe Kravitz. »

24 July 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This morning came the announcement of the 2014 Venice Film Festival lineup and we already knew Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman would serve as the opening night film and for the most part a lot of the more recognizable entries are those we already discussed as part of the Toronto Film Festival lineup. This includes Ramin Bahrani's 99 Homes, David Gordon Green's Manglehorn starring Al Pacino, Abel Ferrera's Pasolini, Barry Levinson's The Humbling and Andrew Niccol's The Good Kill. There are, however, some titles worthy of note such as the latest film from The Act of Killing director Joshua Oppenheimer, The Lord of Silence, Fatih Akin's The Cut, She's Funny that Way from Peter Bogdanovich, Lisa Cholodenko's Olive Kitteredge and a new film from James Franco in The Sound and the Fury based on Faulkner's novel.

James Ransone Joins Ethan Hawke And Karen Gillan In A Valley Of Violence

5 June 2014 4:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Blumhouse Productions is best known for its contributions to the horror genre, with such frightfests as Sinister, Insidious and The Purge in its body of work. But if you take one look at its upcoming slate, you’ll begin to understand that Blumhouse is looking to broaden its horizons in a big way. One of the most curious projects in the works over at the studio is a revenge Western called In A Valley of Violence. Though Ti West (The House of the Devil) scribed and also directed, the film still seems more than a little out of the way for the horror-leaning studio. That doesn’t mean, however, that we’re not looking forward to it, particularly with the cast West has lined up. Today, James Ransone joined the film, which already boasts Ethan Hawke, John Travolta, Karen Gillan and Taissa Farmiga.

I’m anticipating that additional details about »

Did Fifty Shades of Grey Change Dakota Johnson?

It's nice to know that Dakota Johnson isn't letting Fifty Shades of Grey go to her head. She was filming Cymbeline with John Leguizamo when she won the role of Anastasia Steele in the movie adaptation of the best selling Nsfw novel. "Here we're doing the movie and she's just Dakota Johnson and the next week it was announced in the trades that she's in Fifty Shades of Grey and all of a sudden we're bombarded," Leguizamo told me at the SXSW premiere of his new comedy, Chef. "But she still remained the same girl even though we had to protect her from the massive amounts of crazy." "Her life changed like that," he said while snapping his »
