It’s 1977, punk reigns supreme, and Enn (Alex Sharp) has just ended up at a party full of aliens. They don’t look like ETs – having assumed human forms and all that — but they sure do act the part, engaging in strange rituals, dressing in space-age latex and preparing for a bizarre ceremony.
One of the them, Zan (Elle Fanning doing a kind of manic-alien-dream-girl

Unbeknownst to Jimmy, he totally blew his chances at landing the Australian beauty; between his offering of brie cheese and corn chips, lack of communication, and the fact that he "put on a video game," Nicole admitted, "After about an hour and a half, I thought, 'He had no interest, this is so embarrassing.

Previous rumours have suggested that we’ll be getting a more “classic” looking Aquaman costume in the James Wan-directed superhero blockbuster, and from the above image it certainly seems like we’re getting more orange than we saw in last year’s Justice League. Hopefully we’ll get a better look soon with the release of a trailer.

The move is aimed at driving up subscriptions at Telefonica’s mobile and fiber-optic services in the Spanish-speaking world. But it also marks a potential milestone in the Spanish-language movie industry as Movistar + takes the lead on productions of big films that few other companies have the money or commercial logic to create.
Movistar +’s original films could prove catnip for Hollywood, which has seen big Spanish-language titles backed by broadcast networks Mediaset España and Atresmedia sometimes outearn Hollywood studio releases in Spain.
Movistar +’s inaugural film is “Mientras dure la guerra” by Amenábar, who directed “The Others” with Nicole Kidman, “Agora” with Rachel Weisz, and Oscar-winning “The Sea Inside” with Javier Bardem. Amenábar’s last movie in Spanish was
Unfortunately, though, we’ve yet to see a trailer for the James Wan-directed superhero flick. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who will be portraying villain Black Manta in the film, recently commented on the absence of it. He wouldn’t give us much, however, as when asked why he can’t, at the very least, tell us when the preview will drop, the actor playfully responded, “it would Ruin Everything…So… No. I won’t tell you.”
So, while we wait for the elusive first footage of Aquaman to surface, Warner Bros. has now revealed a new look at Jason Momoa as the titular superhero. The promo art on display at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas depicts
“Solo: A Star Wars Story” is looking to lift off with $130 million to $150 million at 4,380 locations over Memorial Day weekend. While that is down significantly from tracking earlier in May that suggested the film would open between $165 million and $175 million, some are still projecting the “Star Wars” prequel could make as much as $180 million over the four-day holiday weekend.
The film follows Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo, who befriends his future co-pilot and Wookie companion Chewbacca, and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Paul Bettany, Joonas Suotamo, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge round out the cast.
Ron Howard directed from a screenplay by Jonathan and Lawrence Kasdan. Howard replaced the directing team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who left the project in June of 2017, citing “creative differences.
David Fincher has been nominated for two Oscars for Best Director (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and “The Social Network”), and he’s already an Emmy winner for directing the premiere episode of “House of Cards.” But while that political drama sits out this Emmy cycle (its sixth and final season won’t premiere until later this year), Fincher has another Netflix series in the running: “Mindhunter,
After glacial-paced early trading, titles sold from Cannes’ first weekend both to the U.S. and abroad at a steady, though never spectacular, rate.
But if Cannes, like February’s surprisingly buoyant Berlinale, suggested there is still life in the international independent film business, despite a tepid Sundance and dire American Film Market, it also delivered a sobering snapshot of new theatrical market realities.
Whichever way the 2018 Cannes Film Market is taken, heartening signs of continued market traction have to be placed in a context of a longer term attrition in the independent theatrical market affecting many mid-sized English-language movies and arthouse titles alike.
“Boy Erased” is the second directorial effort from actor Joel Edgerton following “The Gift.” The drama is based on Garrard Conley’s memoir of the same name and stars Hedges as the son of a Baptist pastor who is outed as gay at 19 years old and sent to a conversation therapy program. Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman play Conley’s parents, while Edgerton takes on the role of gay conversion therapist Victor Sykes. The supporting cast includes Cherry Jones, Troye Sivan,
Focus Features has released three new photos from the upcoming film Boy Erased.
The drama tells the story of Jared (Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Kidman and Crowe) at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. Boy Erased is the true story of one young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity.
