Tribeca: Sarah Jessica Parker’s ‘Blue Night’ Gets Moody Poster (First Look)
With a cast that includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Renee Zellweger, and Common, “Blue Night” is one of the hottest projects at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Variety has an exclusive first look at the film’s moody poster, which features a forlorn-looking Parker in a sea of anonymous city dwellers.

The film follows Vivienne (Parker), a singer in New York City, whose world is shattered after she receives some bad news. It unfolds over the course of a day as she prepares for an upcoming world tour, navigates various personal and professional relationships, and reflects on her successes and failures, all while trying to find a private moment to share with others the news she has received from her doctor.

Blue Night” is Parker’s first film in three years. In addition to her work on HBO’s “Sex & the City” and “Divorce,” Parker has appeared in “Failure to Launch,

Will BFFs Nicole Kidman (‘Top of the Lake: China Girl’) and Naomi Watts (‘Twin Peaks: The Return’) battle at the Emmys?
Last year, Nicole Kidman beat her friend and “Big Little Lies” co-star and co-producer Reese Witherspoon for the Emmy. This year, she could defeat a pal again — but not just any ol’ buddy: her best friend Naomi Watts.

The Aussies are both in the running for Best Limited Series/TV Movie Supporting Actress; Kidman is currently in third place in our odds for “Top of the Lake: China Girl,” while Watts is just outside the lineup at seventh for “Twin Peaks: The Return.”

See Will Naomi Watts (‘Twin Peaks’) earn her first Emmy nomination 19 years after ‘Mulholland Drive’ was rejected as a pilot?

Since Watts’ breakthrough in 2001’s “Mulholland Drive,” the besties, who met on the 1991 film “Flirting,” have only been nominated against each other once for a major televised award: at the Critics’ Choice Awards for 2003’s “21 Grams” (Watts) and “Cold Mountain” (Kidman). They’ve had lots of

Movies New to Netflix in April: ‘Seven,’ ‘The Iron Giant,’ ‘Scarface’ and More

April showers might bring May flowers, but what to do during the rainy season? Why, modern movie-lover does when the weather outside is frightful, curl up with some Netflix. (Maybe get some chill in there, if you’re lucky). While not the most romantic of movies, classic crime lovers can enjoy Brian De Palma’s “Scarface,” which lands on the platform next month. After you get your fix of an infinitely quotable and smoldering Al Pacino, you can jump ahead to the equally as disturbing David Fincher classic, “Seven.”

A few tear-jerking Oscar winners also head to Netflix in April, including the Nicole Kidman, Renée Zellweger-starring “Cold Mountain,” and Roberto Benigni’s WWII drama “Life Is Beautiful.” For lighter fare, check out “The Iron Giant,” or both live-action “The Flinstones” movies (for my Rosie O’Donnell die-hards).

Hopefully, that’s enough to keep you busy until May. Check out

Will Renee Zellweger win another Oscar for playing an Oscar nominee? The “Cold Mountain” star is unrecognizable as Judy Garland in the upcoming biopic “Judy.” Production on the film began Monday in London, which Pathé, BBC Films and Ingenious Media marked with a first look at Zellweger as the “Wizard of Oz” icon.

Set in 1968, the film will chronicle Garland’s final string of concerts at London’s Talk of the Town nightclub, giving a behind-the-scenes look at her tumultuous battles with management and her family, juxtaposed with her public relationship with fans. Garland, who was Oscar-nominated for “A Star Is Born” (1954) and “Judgment at Nuremberg” (1961), died in London in June 1969 of a barbiturate overdose, 12 days after her 47th birthday.

Oscars 2018: Which 20 previous winners should present to this year’s 20 acting nominees?

Oscars 2018: Which 20 previous winners should present to this year’s 20 acting nominees?
One of the highlights of the 2009 Academy Awards ceremony was the surprise addition of 20 Oscar winners presenting to that year’s acting nominees. It started with five Best Supporting Actress champs (Whoopi Goldberg, Goldie Hawn, Anjelica Huston, Eva Marie Saint, Tilda Swinton) who gave out the award to Penelope Cruz, welcoming her to their club. While all of those presenting that evening had indeed won the category before, each one often had no connection at all to the person they were introducing.

The following year new producers followed a similar format of five people presenting to a new crop of five for the lead categories only. While all of them had working relationships with the nominees (like Michelle Pfeiffer for Jeff Bridges and Stanley Tucci for Meryl Streep), most of them were not Oscar winners.

2018 BAFTA Awards: ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ breaks Best British Film curse

2018 BAFTA Awards: ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ breaks Best British Film curse
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” won the very first BAFTA Award of the evening on Feb. 18 when it was named Best British Film. And it ended the night by claiming the Best Picture prize. That marked just the second time since the British academy reintroduced Best British Film in 1992 that the same movie won both awards. The only other double dipper was “The King’s Speech,” which went to win Best Picture at the Oscars in 2011.

It might seem odd that a film like “Three Billboards,” which is set in the American heartland, qualified for consideration as Best British Film. However, it was written and directed by an Englishman, Martin McDonagh, and co-financed by UK broadcaster Channel 4.

Christopher Walken and Elizabeth Debicki cast in neo-noir thriller The Burnt Orange Heresy

According to THR, Oscar-winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter) and Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) have been cast in the neo-noir thriller The Burnt Orange Heresy, which is being helmed by Giuseppe Capotondi, the Golden Lion-nominated director of The Double Hour.

Adapted from Charles Willeford’s (Miami Blues) novel and scripted by Scott B. Smith (A Simple Plan), The Burnt Orange Heresy takes place in Italy in 1970, with THR providing the following plot summary:

“The project follows the story of irresistibly charismatic art critic James Figueras (yet to be cast), who hooks up with provocative and alluring fellow American Berenice Hollis (Debicki). He’s a classic anti-hero in the making with a charm that masks his deep ambition, while she’s an innocent touring Europe, enjoying the freedom of being whomever she wishes. The new lovers travel to the lavish and opulent Lake Como estate of Cassidy,

When Elvis Costello Wrote a Song For ‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,’ He Understood ‘Avoiding Your Own Reflection’
Pop stars write closing credit songs all the time. But the story behind Elvis Costello’s moving song “You Shouldn’t Look at Me That Way,” about an older woman’s complicated allure, is crazy. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Peter Turner went to see his show at the London Palladium and were shocked to see a photo of Gloria Grahame on the stage. When they went backstage, they asked Costello to write a song for “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” starring Annette Bening as the aging Hollywood actress who has an affair with younger actor Peter Turner (Jamie Bell).

Just in Time for The Holiday! Kate Winslet and Jude Law Reunite 11 Years After Movie
It’s been over a decade since Kate Winslet and Jude Law costarred as brother and sister in The Holiday, but that doesn’t make their Christmas time reunion any less magical.

The actors attended a screening of her new film Wonder Wheel at The Soho Hotel in London, England, on Monday, sparking memories of the beloved romantic comedy about two women from opposite sites of the Atlantic Ocean who swap houses over the Christmas season, only to each find love.

Winslet and Law, who also appeared together in 2011’s Contagion, posed for photos with director and producer Stephen Daldry,

With a ‘Film Stars’ Song in Contention, Rock Star Elvis Costello Reflects on Moonlighting for the Movies

With a ‘Film Stars’ Song in Contention, Rock Star Elvis Costello Reflects on Moonlighting for the Movies
Elvis Costello wrote the closing song for the new movie “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” but it’s a classic from his own canon that director Paul McGuigan planted as an Easter egg for music buffs. Costello’s “Pump It Up” is heard early on in the film to establish the late ’70s time frame, right before a scene that has the American actress Gloria Grahame (played by Annette Bening) meeting her younger Liverpudlian boyfriend (Jamie Bell) for the first time. Just after “Pump It Up” is heard on the soundtrack, the two lovers-to-be dance to “Boogie Oogie Oogie” — a cheeky nod to one of the silliest awards upsets of all time, when the ephemeral disco group A Taste of Honey famously beat Costello for the best new artist Grammy.

“You know what? It didn’t register,” admits Costello, who didn’t get the embedded joke when he first saw the film, and whom the

Renee Zellweger Is Judy Garland in Post-Wizard of Oz Biopic

Renee Zellweger Is Judy Garland in Post-Wizard of Oz Biopic
Path&#233 and Calamity Films have set a February 2018 start date for principal photography on Judy, based on the true story of Judy Garland's final concerts in London. Actress Renee Zellweger, Academy Award winner and three times Academy Award nominee (Bridget Jones's Diary, Cold Mountain and Chicago), will play Judy Garland; and celebrated British stage director, Rupert Goold (a Tony nominee and two times Olivier winner) will direct. No release date has been set at this time and it remains to be seen how many more roles need to be filled out.

The story is set in Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform in a sell-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show,

Renée Zellweger to Play Judy Garland in “Judy”

Zellweger in “Bridget Jones’s Baby”

It’s been over a decade since Renée Zellweger starred as Roxie Hart in “Chicago,” but the actress seems poised to show off her impressive pipes in the near future. The Oscar winner has signed on to play Judy Garland in an upcoming drama about the “Wizard of Oz” star, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. Titled “Judy,” the film is based on the true story of the Hollywood legend’s final concerts in London, held in 1968. While THR doesn’t specify whether or not the pic will feature Zellweger on the mic, it seems likely that she’ll sing given “Judy’s” subject matter.

The project takes place “30 years since ‘the world’s greatest entertainer’ shot to global fame in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and as she prepares for the concerts, she battles with management, charms musicians, and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, while also embarking on a courtship with Mickey Dean, her soon-to-be fifth husband,” the source summarizes. “Yet Garland is also fragile, and having spent 45 of her 47 years working, is haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood and a desire to be back home with her kids.”

Written by Tom Edge (“The Crown”) and directed by Tony nominee Robert Goold, the project is backed by Pathe and Calamity Films and production is slated to kick off February 2018.

Zellweger won an Academy Award in 2004 for “Cold Mountain.” She’s also received nods for “Chicago” and “Bridget Jones’s Diary.” Earlier this year she was honored at Greenwich International Film Festival for her work off-screen: supporting research on Als and collaborating with an Austin-based org that aids individuals in the music industry who are affected by depression and mental health issues.

When asked about aging in Hollywood, the actress has responded, “I’ve never seen the maturation of a woman as a negative thing.” She explained, “I’ve never seen a woman stepping into her more powerful self as a negative.”

Renée Zellweger to Play Judy Garland in “Judy” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
