Rumors have abounded for months, and we even picked our Top 10 wishlist, but today, the 67th Cannes Film Festival has announced its 2014 lineup – and although it’s high on European fare, there are still to come great inclusions for Hollywood’s rising stars. The biggest stars on the Croisette this year will be “Twilight” actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, who will be back at the festival following their debuts at the festival in 2012, and in competition in “Map To The Stars” and “Sils Maria,” respectively. The films’Read More
Jeremy Irvine is tortured and traumatized in the first trailer for WWI drama “The Railway Man,” starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman. Firth is clearly carrying some hidden trauma and via flashback, we follow his younger soldier self (Irvine) as a prisoner of war, where many atrocities were inflicted upon him and his fellow British soldiers. Jonathan Teplitzky directed the film based on the true life memoir of Eric Lomax, who, as a prisoner of war, was forced to work on constructing Japan’s Death Railway, a track which connects BangkokRead More
With “Stoker”, Korean horror director Park Chan-wook makes his long-awaited English language debut, and fans of his highly stylized, stunning visuals and ability to bring out a certain poetic beauty in violent imagery will be satisfied with this dark and twisted tale of family bonds that run a little too deep. Set in the aftermath of a funeral, Mia Wasikowska plays India Stoker, an introverted teen who has just lost her beloved father (Dermot Mulroney) and can’t stand to be touched, not even by her flakey, needy mother (Nicole Kidman).Read More
The footage and imagery that emerges from Park Chan-wook’s English language debut “Stoker” continues to be mind-blowingly beautiful and the new poster, unveiled today by Empire, is no exception. Mia Wasikowska, as troubled and abused teenager India, gets the close-up this time around, with the ever-ominous phrase “Innocence Ends” seemingly tattooed across her forhead. Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, also wonderful is the way this new poster links thematically and visually with the last poster released, which in turn was linked to the promo reel/music video, which built upon theRead More
We described the first trailer for Park Chan-wook’s English language debut, “Stoker”, as beautiful and spooky, terrifying and intriguing and today more marketing materials from the film released only further cement this as one of our most anticipated releases of 2013. There’s no floating heads against a generic background on the first poster for this creepy family drama that sees Mia Wasikowska as th bullied daughter of Nicole Kidman and object of something sinister from Matthew Goode’s Uncle Charlie. The hand-drawn, detailed and elaborate sketch of a poster adds toRead More
We saw some footage last week, and it was great. Today we have the full trailer for Park Chan-wook’s English language debut, the creepy family drama “Stoker”, and it’s actually even better. Mia Wasikowska plays India Stoker, the bullied daughter of Nicole Kidman, who’s legitimately scary with her piercing stare and menacing whispers, and the two are mourning the death of India’s father when Matthew Goode arrives in the form of the even creepier Uncle Charlie. He romances the mother, but eyes the daughter and makes no qualms that heRead More
Entertainment Tonight has aired the first footage from Korean director Park Chan-Wook’s English language debut, creepy family drama “Stoker”, and it looks beautifully atmospheric and spooky. Mia Wasikowska goes Wednesday Addams with black hair and pale skin to play the teenage girl whose father has just passed away. Nicole Kidman plays her “mother from hell”, and things are further complicated with the arrival of Matthew Goode as Uncle Charlie. Wasikowska mostly plays it straight, while the two adults attempt to out-creepy each other with deranged stares and giant smiles. LucasRead More
After not really finding his way doing the blockbuster franchise thing – “Transformers” were hits, but those giant robots stole the show, and “Indiana Jones” didn’t exactly reboot itself – Shia Labeouf seems to be taking a page out of James Franco’s offbeat reinvention playbook and seeking out smaller, much more interesting roles instead. THR reports the actor is in talks with director Lars Van Trier about taking a role in his follow-up to critically acclaimed “Melancholia”, “Nymphomaniac.” Labeouf won’t be playing the titular “Nymphomaniac”, that mantle belongs to CharlotteRead More
