Elisabeth Moss in First Trailer for HBO's New Short Film 'Tokyo Project'

"You ever spend the night with a stranger?" HBO has unveiled a trailer for a short film they're debuting this October. Tokyo Project is a 30-minute short from director Richard Shepard (Dom Hemingway, The Hunting Party, The Matador), produced by Lena Dunham. Ebon Moss-Bachrach stars as Sebastian, a man on a business trip to Tokyo. He keeps running into a mysterious woman named Claire, as played by Elisabeth Moss. They eventually hook up, but also end up dealing with their own sordid pasts. Co-starring Shu Kakizawa. This obviously reminds me of Lost in Translation, but hopefully it's a bit different. I am always up for anything with Elisabeth Moss, because she is so talented, and this looks like it could be good. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Richard Shepard's short film Tokyo Project, from YouTube: On a business trip to Tokyo, Japan, Sebastian explores the city with

Cannes Film Review: ‘A Perfect Day’

Cannes Film Review: ‘A Perfect Day’
Welcome to Hell,” reads a piece of wall graffiti in an unspecified Balkan territory, though what we see onscreen feels more like a dry, over-tilled stretch of seriocomic purgatory in “A Perfect Day.” Taking stock of a nation’s war wounds through an outsider’s lens, this first English-language effort from Spanish director Fernando Leon de Aranoa casts a nicely jaundiced eye on five aid workers, struggling and mostly failing to do some badly needed clean-up work toward the end of the mid-’90s conflict. But despite the appreciably restrained, low-key approach, the character-driven humor never finds a proper groove in what amounts to a so-so retread of earlier mid-conflict comedies like “Mash” and “The Hunting Party.” Still, the prominent cast names of Benicio Del Toro and Tim Robbins will ensure additional festival duty and limited arthouse exposure.

Leon de Aranoa has proven no stranger to melding gritty social realism

Ed Sheeran takes 'X' to No. 1 on next week's album chart
Ed Sheeran will land his first No. 1 album next week as “X” easily tops the Billboard 200. It’s a good week to be a British singer/songwriter. Following Sheeran at No. 1 (with sales of up to 210,000), Sam Smith’s “In The Lonely Hour” will hold at No. 2 (72,000). The second of four debuts comes in at No. 3, as rapper G-Easy’s “These Things Happen” sells 48,000. Also bowing in the top 10 will be hard rock heavyweights Mastadon with “Once More ‘Round The Sun” at No. 8 (28,000), and Phish, whose “Fuego” swims in at No. 9 (28,000). This week’s No. 1, Lana Del Rey’s “Ultraviolence” will likely drop to No. 4 (45,000). The unsinkable soundtrack to “Frozen” remains afloat at No. 5 (40,000). Miranda Lambert’s “Platinum” falls to No. 6 (30,000) and Linkin Park’s “The Hunting Party,” drops to No. 7(30,000). At No. 10 is “Now That’s What I Call Music 50” (24,000), according to Hits Daily Double.

Mall Trailer - Directorial Debut of Linkin Park's Joe Hahn

Joseph Hahn is mostly known for his creative work as the beat master for the band Linkin Park. He's also directed several of the band's music videos. The guy is crazy talented and I know he's been trying to direct a feature film for years. I'm happy to report that it's finally happened for him and he just made a distribution deal for it.

The movie is called Mall, and it's based on Eric Bogosian's 2001 novel of the same name. The story revolves around "five disaffected suburbanites whose lives come together at a shopping mall following a seemingly random shooting." This looks like a solid movie. We actually have a trailer for it for you to check out below, and an international poster that I found above. Apparently, the film was already released in France.

Paragon Pictures picked up North American rights to the feature which stars Vincent D’Onofrio,

Lana Del Rey nabs No. 1 on album sales chart over Sam Smith, J-Lo, Linkin Park
Lana Del Rey earns her first No. 1 album as sophomore set "Ultraviolence" takes the top of The Billboard 200 with 182,000 copies. Her debut album "Born to Die" made it to No. 2 in January 2012, with 77,000 sold, according to Nielsen Soundscan. British singer-songwriter Sam Smith bows at No. 2 with "In the Lonely Hour," moving 166,000. Sales were driven in part by the popularity of his single "Stay With Me." Linkin Park's new "The Hunting Party" moved enough for No. 3, with 110,000. The vets last rocked the chart in 2012 with "Living Things," which made it to No. 1 with 223,000. The "Frozen" soundtrack falls No. 3 to No. 4 with 42,000 (-15%). Willie Nelson's "Band of Brothers" starts at No. 5 with 37,000, making it his highest charting album since "Always on My Mind" made it to No. 2 in 1982. Miranda Lambert's "Platinum" descends No. 2 to No. 6 (34,000, -45%) and Jack White's No. 1 "Lazaretto" album is now No. 7 (34,000, -75%). Jennifer Lopez' "A.

Lana Del Rey, Sam Smith and Linkin Park open big on next week's album chart
Next week proves to be a big week for debuts in the Billboard 200 top 10 as Lana Del Rey, Sam Smith, and Linkin Park all top the 100,000 mark. Though Smith’s “In The Lonely Hour” is coming on strong, heading into the weekend, Del Rey’s “Ultraviolence” has a good lead on the British newcomer, as the chanteuse’s second full-length album is on target to sell up to 190,000 copies and bow at No. 1. “Hour”is looking good for 160,000 and No. 2, but with the chart not closing until Sunday night, there could be a weekend surprise. Linkin Park’s latest, “The Hunting Party,” will slide into six figures, selling as many as 110,000 copies in its opening frame to enter at No. 3. Also bowing in the top 10: Willie Nelson’s “Band of Brothers” make a high debut for the troubadour, landing at No. 6 (40,000); Jennifer Lopez’s “A.K.A.” at No.

‘Dom Hemingway’ and the Art of Crafting a Likable Prick

Director Richard Shepard makes tonally risky choices. The Matador and The Hunting Party are broad comedies, but they also focus on characters with serious problems. Shepard doesn’t play those personal conflicts as jokes, either. He takes their predicaments very seriously, no matter how goofy his characters may act. These three dramatic comedies, including his latest film, Dom Hemingway, are driven by the loss of a loved one. In the case of Dom Hemingway, the narrative is also propelled by a potbellied, foul mouth, unhinged and egotistical safe-cracker named Dom Hemingway (Jude Law). This is a man who loves his name, himself, and, of course, his cock. You read that last part right. The film opens with Dom discussing what a wonderful piece of equipment he has. Needless to say, he’s a magnetic character who is, maybe not a good person, but someone you root for, if only because he knows how to talk about himself

Exclusive: Alfie, Queen of Dragons in 'Dom Hemingway' photos
Dom Hemingway just got out of jail. Dom wants what he's owed. That may turn out to be a tall order. Featuring a balls-to-the-wall performance by Jude Law, "Dom Hemingway" is the relatively new dramatic thriller from writer/director Richard Shepard. Best known for "The Matador" and "The Hunting Party," Shepard has spent a good amount of time in television recently, directing six episodes of "Girls" and the new Wgn series "Salem." He is a man of many talents, but when he is writing his own work on the big screen, it usually includes a significant amount of dark comedy. And when we say dark, we mean almost crossing the line dark (in the best way possible). After debuting at the Toronto Film Festival last September and earning a release in the UK in November, "Dom Hemingway's" self-destructive antics are heading to U.S. theaters next month.

New 'Dom Hemingway' Clip: Jude Law Has a Seriously Bad Hangover (Video)

Jude Law seems to be on a career upswing and we couldn't be happier. After being poised as the next big thing, Law starred in a number of huge (and hugely forgettable) movies like "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" and "Alfie." But now, he seems to be finding his footing again, costarring in two wildly successful "Sherlock Holmes" movies with Robert Downey, Jr. and getting a creative shot-in-the-arm from a pair of collaborations with Steven Soderbergh ("Contagion" and "Side Effects"). His next movie looks like a lot of fun, too.

The movie is "Dom Hemingway," and in it Law stars as the title character, a boozy, druggy criminal who has just been released from prison after serving 12 years. The film recently played at the Toronto International Film Festival and opens in the U.K. on November 15 and the in the U.S. in April 2014. In this new clip from Total Film,
