Cannes: Critics' Week unveils 2017 selection

Cannes: Critics' Week unveils 2017 selection
Mafia tale Sicilian Ghost Story to open sidebar, Sundance hit Brigsby Bear selected as closer.

Cannes Critics’ Week, devoted to first and second features as well as shorts, has unveiled the line-up of its 56th edition, running May 18-26.

Italian directors Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza will open the selection with their second feature Sicilian Ghost Story, a genre-mixing work following a teenage girl as she searches for the boy she loves after he is kidnapped by the Mafia.

It is inspired by the real-life tale of Giuseppe Di Matteo, the son of a former Mafia hitman-turned-informant, who was abducted in 1993.

Critics’ Week artistic director Charles Tesson described it as a “staggering crossover between cinema genres, combining politics, fantasy and terrible teen love.”

The directorial duo premiered their debut feature Salvo in competition in Critics’ Week in 2013, winning the €15,000 Nespresso Grand Prize.

The screenplay for Sicilian Ghost Story was developed at the Sundance Screenwriting Lab and went

A Cure For Wellness Review

Mortality. A constant unknown that plagues the human condition. We try to delay its effects, but no matter what – someday – the Grim Reaper will coming knocking. Sorry to start off on such a dark note, but these thoughts directly provoke Gore Verbinski’s cold-open for A Cure For Wellness. The director urges viewers towards personal fulfillment, breaking the shackles of our work-until-death mentalities. Do you want to be the guy who croaks at his desk just to earn one more Employee Of The Month award? Thus is the introduction of Verbinski’s cult-noir mystery with Lovecraftian appeal, wholly committed to resurrecting a cinematic weirdness that has escaped mainstream cinema for far too long.

On a serious note – who greenlit this picture, and how did Verbinski pitch such a strange big-budget puzzler? You just don’t see ambitious mindf&#kery like this being given studio priority anymore. Everything starts with a very Shutter Island vibe,

This Is What the Teen Choice Awards Looked Like in 2006

This Is What the Teen Choice Awards Looked Like in 2006
Life in Hollywood looked a heck of a lot different at the 2006 Teen Choice Awards! Jessica Simpson and Dane Cook hosted the awards show that year, fresh off the heels of their comedy Employee of the Month. Simpson and Nick Lachey had announced their divorce about a year beforehand, but both attended the event and turned it into an "awkward" experience for everyone involved. Lachey took home the award for Choice Love Song for "What's Left of Me," a song about the demise of his marriage, and gave an uncomfortable acceptance speech given his ex-wife was the host. "I just want to start off by saying...awkward?" he said, smiling. "A little bit!" What's strange in hindsight...

Does Saturday Night Live have something to prove heading into its final three-weak stretch of the year? In terms of recent weeks, yes, but this has still been a solid season overall. Ebbs and flows are part of the natural order of this show, even if that's hard to see in the moment.

The real attention on the show will start this fall, when the Presidential election will be in full swing. For now, we get Oscar-winner Brie Larson kicking things off for the May run. It took some time

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Viral Campaign Launches, New Secrets Teased

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Viral Campaign Launches, New Secrets Teased
When 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi opened earlier this month, it arrived with a surprise teaser trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, which many believed was a sequel to the 2008 thriller Cloverfield, a movie that arrived wrapped in just as much mystery. 10 Cloverfield Lane has since been called a distant cousin to Cloverfield. The two films are connected, but this new thriller isn't a direct sequel. Some believe it is more of an anthology film held under the Cloverfield banner. Whatever it is, it is arriving under a shroud of secrecy this March. And like Cloverfield, it is getting an extensive and somewhat bewildering viral campaign. In a recent interview, star Mary Elizabeth Winstead teased what the movie is actually about.

Speaking with EW, the actress opened up every so slightly about the tense drama, which takes place in a bomb shelter. She can't tell us much about the plot or its twists and turns.
