Jeanne Moreau, Star of French Film Classics, Dies at 89
Acclaimed French actress Jeanne Moreau, whose films include such masterpieces as “Jules and Jim” and “Diary of a Chambermaid,” has died. She was 89.

The mayor of the Paris district in which Moreau lived confirmed her death.

French President Emmanuel Macron called her “a legend of cinema and theater … an actress engaged in the whirlwind of life with an absolute freedom.” Pierre Lescure, president of the Cannes Film Festival, tweeted: “She was strong and she didn’t like to see people pour their hearts out. Sorry, Jeanne, but this is beyond us. We are crying.”


Celebrities Who Died in 2017

Moreau was honored with a 1965 Time magazine cover story, rare for a foreign actress, and was compared to such screen greats as Garbo and Monroe. Since her rise to prominence in the mid-’50s, she epitomized the tenets of the French new wave, boasting a womanly sexuality and a fierce independent spirit. Orson Welles,

Toronto Film Festival 2012: Walter Salles Working on New On The Road Cut

On the Road movie reedited for Toronto screening Based on Jack Kerouac's '50s novel, Walter Salles' Otr adaptation starring Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, and Kristen Stewart (above photo) will be screened at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival. We all knew that. What we didn't know is that Tiff 2012 will unveil a new cut of the film (via indieWIRE), which premiered last spring at the Cannes Film Festival to mixed reviews. The 2hr20m drama has been downsized to approximately 125 minutes. That's an interesting development, as Otr has already been screened in several countries, with varying degrees of box-office success. [Check out the On the Road trailer. Check out Kristen Stewart On the Road poster; Garrett Hedlund On the Road poster.] Otr movie reedit hardly unique On the other hand, different cuts shown in different countries is hardly something new. Whether as a result of poor critical/box-office reception, (perceived) local sensibilities, and/or censorship, the movie you watch in, say, Canada isn't necessarily the exact same movie watched by someone in Singapore,

Short Starts: "Water for Elephants" Star Robert Pattinson in "The Summer House"

As a shorts fanatic I get very excited about anthology films. These projects, like “Paris, Je T’aime” and “Four Rooms,” are great opportunities for multiple directors to work on the same theme and then bring it all together in a single collection. They don’t happen terribly often these days, probably because they’re hard to market well for the box office, but they’re often successful and always interesting. 2010’s “Love and Distrust,” while not a showpiece of famous directors, stars some pretty famous talent, including Robert Pattinson in the understated drama “The Summer House.” Set against the moon landing in 1969,…

False Advertising: Poster for Love & Distrust “Starring” Robert Pattinson, Robert Downey Jr., and Sam Worthington

While Steve was busy snapping photos at the American Film Market (Afm), he grabbed a shot of a surprising poster for Love & Distrust. The film boasted a star-studded cast featuring Robert Pattinson, Robert Downey Jr., Sam Worthington, Amy Adams, and James Franco. Somehow, we had never reported on or even heard of this movie. Of course, there was the standard note in the corner about “Credits Not Contractual”. They may not be contractual, but they can certainly be misleading. Hit the jump to check out the poster, and to learn why you’ve probably never heard of this movie and why buyers should beware.

After doing a bit of research, I discovered that Love & Distrust is already available to own on DVD in UK. Here’s the official synopsis:

Featuring a host of Hollywood A-listers, including Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga, Remember Me), Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man,

Watch Out, Kristen Stewart! Another Woman Is Saying That Rob Pattinson Is A Fabulous ‘Neck Nuzzler!’

Getty Images

R-Patz’s former co-star, Talulah Riley, admits the hunky Twilight star is pretty adept at cozying up to his co-stars. Should K-Stew be jealous?

Robert Pattinson is a man of many talents…and according to his The Summer House co-star, Talulah Riley, the 24-year-old Twilight actor has also mastered the art of cuddling.

“He’s a very good neck nuzzler,” the British actress said in an interview with Monsters and Critics while promoting The Summer House, the short film she appeared in with Rob in 2008. “I worked with Rob before Twilight. I’m very happy for his success. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. He’s a lovely actor and a lovely friend.”

We’d expect nothing less than incredible neck nuzzling from Rob. After all, isn’t that supposed to be a vampire’s specialty?

By Kim Palacios

Robert Pattinson’s 2008 short film, “The Summer House” dominated iTunes immediately following its recent release, topping movie sales charts in the U.S., Canada, Ireland, and Germany after a mere four hours. The July 13th iTunes release marked the first occasion on which the film had been distributed for mass consumption, having only been run on the festival circuit during the prior year.

The film is an adaptation of a coming-of-age story in which a teenage girl (Jane) summering at an aunt’s chateau in rural France discovers the complexity of romantic relationships—both those of certain family members, as well as her own. Rob plays the role of 18-year-old Richard, the love interest of Jane. Having broken up with her to date another woman prior to her departure for the summer, once dumped by the other, he appears unexpectedly at Jane’s retreat to win her back.

One of Robert Pattinson's earlier works, a short film entitled The Summer House, is available on iTunes today for $1.99.

Robert Pattinson-starring short, The Summer House, to release on iTunes

When it comes to the pre-twilight career of one Robert Pattinson, it’s difficult to picture anything beyond his work as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter. But before he sparkled and was alternately dead and undead (and before he won the hearts of millions with his two iconic roles), Pattinson had amassed a small, interesting body of work – including the short film The Summer House. Filmed back in 2008, the short stars Pattinson and Talulah Riley (Pirate Radio) as a pair of star-crossed lovers in the swinging sixties.
