Follow the line-up of titles as they are announced here…Refresh this page for the latest (titles now being announced)

The line-up of titles in Directors’ Fortnight, a parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival (May 13-24) run by the French Director’s Guild, is being announced at a press conference in Paris this morning.

It has already been announced that the opening film will be In the Shadow of Women, by Directors’ Fortnight habitué Philippe Garrel. The film revolves around a documentary-maker who drops his mistress, a trainee he met on a shoot, after he discovers his long-term partner also has a lover.

It has also been revealed that Arnaud Desplechin’s My Golden Days (Trois souvenirs de ma jeunesse) would also premiere there, as will Portuguese filmmaker Miguel Gomes’ Arabian Nights, a contemporary re-telling of One Thousand and One Nights.

Cannes: Directors’ Fortnight Unveils 2015 Lineup (Full List)

17 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New works by Jaco Van Dormael, Takashi Miike, Jeremy Saulnier and Sarunas Bartas will be presented along with the international premieres of Sundance entries “Dope” and “Songs My Brothers Taught Me” in the 47th annual Directors’ Fortnight program at the Cannes Film Festival.

As announced by artistic director Edouard Waintrop, the Fortnight will unspool 19 features this year — three of them directed by Portuguese helmer Miguel Gomes, whose six-hour-plus trilogy, “Arabian Nights,” was announced by the Fortnight last week, as was “My Golden Years,” the latest from French auteur Arnaud Desplechin. Both Gomes and Desplechin were turned down from the main competition and opted to take their films to the other side of the Croisette rather than accept slots in Un Certain Regard — a major coup for Waintrop that signals one of the most openly competitive years for the official selection and Directors’ Fortnight in recent memory.

My favourite Cannes winner: The Tree of Life

29 minutes ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Continuing our series in which writers choose their favourite Palme d’Or victor, Xan Brooks explores his overwhelming love for Terrence Malick’s brilliant, biblical domestic drama (also featuring dinosaurs)

The first rule of the Cannes film festival is that nothing exists except the Cannes film festival. The whole event is a gaudy soap-bubble, swirling with stretch limos and red carpets, oligarch yachts and precise, clockwork screenings, and hermetically sealed off from the real world beyond. Nothing matters so much as the next scheduled seance or that round table junket with the cast of The Expendables 3 and if the luckless critic is unable to gain access to the new Brillante Mendoza, well, he might as well hurl himself off the press room balcony right now because frankly it’s all over and there is no point going on.

A Little Chaos fails to bloom at the UK box office

1 hour ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Alan Rickman’s directorial effort starring Kate Winslet hasn’t wooed costume drama fans, while Fast & Furious 7 closes on Fifty Shades of Grey to become the year’s biggest movie

With its horticulturally-framed romance, period setting and Alan Rickman in the director’s chair, A Little Chaos could have been the year’s big costume drama – but UK cinemagoers, perhaps drained by the sight of Aidan Turner’s abdominals in Poldark on TV, have not flocked to see it.

‘Pitch Perfect 2′ Kicks Off CinemaCon With Big Laughs, More ‘Cups’

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pitch Perfect 2″ got CinemaCon rolling on a high note as the sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit received an enthusiastic reception at the exhibition industry confab.

Director, co-star and producer Elizabeth Banks promised the crowd of theater owners more of what they loved about the first film, and “Pitch Perfect 2″ didn’t deviate much from the formula. There were more a cappella riff-offs, more Fat Amy and a reprisal of “Cups,” the infectious pop song that broke out after its appearance in the first film.

“I encourage all of you to stand up and dance and to sing along,” said Banks, shortly before the film unspooled at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

The audience didn’t take her up on that offer, remaining seated throughout the film, which finds the the Barden Bellas kicked out of the collegiate a cappella league after an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction in front of President Barack Obama. »

Boyhood 2: Ethan Hawke Weighs in on Potential Sequel

3 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you told me that you thought that there’s a chance Richard Linklater would make a Boyhood sequel a few months back, I probably would have looked at you like you were crazy. However, then Linklater actually opened up to the idea. Linklater once told a Sundance audience that he’s got no plans to make another movie with the Boyhood cast, but back in February, he admitted that he started thinking, “The 20s are pretty formative, you know?” As someone who’s wrapping up her 20s, the idea of seeing Mason (Ellar Coltrane) move through that portion of his life certainly sounds very appealing, so while talking to Ethan Hawke for his upcoming movie, Good Kill, I opted to ask him if he heard anything from Linklater regarding another Boyhood movie. Here’s what he said: [complextv contentid="FkN3NtdDoKTGAFDdStg5Y66Ws0qPZtq5" sitename="collider" playerid="26aa5f02d93f4c05a4546f6d5ecb59b7" adsetid="67a3ff9d3a842ae818bb9de1badc5b0" width="600" height="360" keywords=""] “No. I feel that Boyhood was so unique and the reason why »

The Dope Trailer Is, As You Might Imagine, Dope

5 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The coming of age comedy is a genre that never gets old, but certainly gets tired from time to time. Thankfully, there's still some fresh lifeblood in the old genre yet, as you'll see in the trailer to the upcoming film, writer/director Rick Famuyiwa's Dope. With a retro flavor in a modern setting, as well as some comedic assistance from one of the three cast members of Workaholics, the first glimpse below looks to be quite promising. Open Road Films dropped this new trailer, and the film tells the story of Malcolm (Shameik Moore) . a really smart teenager with an affinity for 90's hip hop, a brain full of smart-ass remarks, and eyes for the girlfriend of a local drug dealer. All three collide when he and his friends are forced to fence some product that said drug dealer planted on Malcolm, and if this plays out like »

Thanking fans for turning out for the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice IMAX trailer event this evening, director Zack Snyder tweeted out the following hi-res look at Ben Affleck's Batman costume from the film, which appears decidedly buffer than the Batman in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. As for the trailer even tonight, it apparently was the same trailer that hit the Internet at the end of last week (see below) with an additional six seconds attached to the end. What were those additional six secondsc MTV has a report that says, "After cutting to the logo, we see a close-up of Superman's infuriated face. He starts to run. Batman starts to run towards him. They jump in the air, and as they're about to punch, cut to black." On top of the footage fans also received copies of the IMAX posters I featured last night »

Louis Ck And Kevin Hart's Animated Comedy Has An Incredible Cast

6 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It used to be that actors did animated films because that was the only work they were typically hired for. All of that changed once Robin Williams let the proverbial genie out of the bottle with his performance in Disney's classic Aladdin, and nowadays animated films are normally stuffed with heavyweight Hollywood names. In the case of The Secret Life Of Pets, Louis Ck and Kevin Hart are the anchors, and they've got some interesting back up checking off all of the other boxes. Courtesy of a report from The Hollywood Reporter, we learned that the recently rescheduled Universal Studios project is not only another one that sees them teaming up with animation studio Illumination Entertainment, it's also attracted the comedic likes of Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, Bobby Moynihan, and Jenny Slate for starters. As if that wasn't impressive enough, fellow laugh makers Lake Bell and Hannibal Buress have roles »

Christopher Nolan Says His Filmmaking Process a ‘Combination of Intuition and Geometry’

7 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Nolan described his filmmaking process as “some combination of intuition and geometry” in one of the Tribeca Talks series of public conversations at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

“I don’t write a story outline,” he told a packed house of festivalgoers during the discussion with fellow director Bennett Miller (“Foxcatcher,” “Moneyball”). “Usually my answer right off the bat is that I work intuitively, but I draw a lot of diagrams when I work. I do a lot of thinking about etchings by Escher, for instance. That frees me, finding a mathematical model or a scientific model. I’ll draw pictures and diagrams that illustrate the movement or the rhythm than I’m after.”

Intuition, he noted, comes to the fore in his editing process. “I’ve always edited in a huge hurry, tried to catch that lightning in a bottle, just so the energy is there,” he said. “I »

Roger Ebert launched a film festival in Champaign, Illinois 17 years ago and his indomitable wife Chaz has kept it going strong, with the support of the community where Roger grew up and a loyal crowd of movie lovers who come from near and far. My wife and I attended for the first time this past weekend and had a wonderful time. We met nothing but friendly, enthusiastic people and interesting filmmakers, and got to watch movies on a giant screen at the beautifully restored Virginia Theatre.  Because of my teaching schedule at USC, we missed the first two days’ activities, including a showing of James Ponsoldt’s The End of the Tour (with the director and his star, Jason Segel, in...
