hough the sci-fi drama Equals takes place amid a dystopian future where people have lost the ability to feel basic emotions, Kristen Stewart seemingly inspires curious affection from Nicholas Hoult in an exclusive clip (above) from the upcoming film.
The scene sees Stewart seated in what appears to be a cafeteria, gazing down at a bumble bee that has landed on the table in front of her. Hoult, seated opposite her, watches intently as Stewart traps the insect under a glass, musing on its physicality. “According to the laws of aerodynamics, they shouldn’t fly,” she says, the film’s hypnotic score beginning to surge. “But they don’t know it, so they fly anyway.”
The psychological thriller bowed at the Cannes Film Festival and will be released by the studio’s home entertainment group.
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has picked up the Kristen Stewart-starrer Personal Shopper, which reteams her with Sils Maria director Olivier Assayas, for a number of international territories.
UPHE will be releasing the movie in theaters, on DVD, digital download and TV in Scandinavia, Latin America and Eastern Europe, among other markets.
Personal Shopper received a four-and-a-half-minute standing ovation at the psychological thriller’s recent premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
Stewart and Assayas’ previous outing earned the Hollywood actress a Cesar award, France’s equivalent to the Oscar.
MK2 is handling international sales on Personal Shopper. Assayas penned the English-language script for Personal Shopper, which takes place in a fashion fantasy world.
I have add movie still fro the film Cafe Society to the gallery.
Here’s the trailer for Equals, in which Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult begin an illicit romance in this ice-blue, future-set romantic thriller directed by Drake Doremus (Like Crazy). The picture unspools tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival in its U.S. premiere following its unveiling in Venice last year.
Stewart and Hoult play co-workers Nia and Silas in a futuristic utopian society called “The Collective” where crime and violence have been erased through genetic Kristen Stewart in Equasengineering that also, by the way, got rid of all those messy human emotions and love is a crime. And yet. Nia and Silas can’t help noticing a growing attraction between them, leading them to a forbidden relationship at first tentative but then exploding into a passionate romance, provoking suspicion among their superiors. They’re forced to choose between going back to the safety of the lives they have always known, or risk it all to try and pull off a daring escape. Written by Nathan Parker (Moon), the film also stars Guy Pearce (Memento), Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Bel Powley (The Diary of a Teenage Girl) and Kate Lyn Sheil (You’re Next).
An A24 film, Equals is produced by Michael Schaefer, Michael Pruss, Ann Ruark, Jay Stern and Chip Diggins. It opens in theaters on July 15th, and will be available exclusively on DirecTV starting May 26.
Scoring a hat trick, Woody Allen will open the Cannes Film Festival with his latest comedy, Café Society. This is a record-breaking third time the director will raise the curtain on Cannes after 2002’s Hollywood Ending, and 2011’s Midnight In Paris. As is typical of Allen’s films, Café Society will run out of competition. The 69th Cannes fest opens on May 11.
Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Steve Carell and Corey Stoll star in the story of a young man who arrives in Hollywood during the 1930s hoping to work in the film industry. There, he falls in love, and finds himself swept up in the vibrant café society that defined the spirit of the age.
While Mars Films has French distribution — with the local release coinciding with the festival’s opening — this is the first time a film that Amazon will release domestically has been given such a stage. It also marks a first-ever teaming between Allen and legendary cinematographer Vittorio Storaro.
Kristen Stewart, Melissa Leo, Paul Rudd and Jon Stewart are among the stars who will be featured at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, which announced the first batch of its lineup on Wednesday. A third of the films are directed by women — more than any other time in the festival’s 14-year history.
Highlights include Demetri Martin’s directorial debut, “Dean,” starring Kevin Kline and Gillian Jacobs, as well as the anthology film “Madly,” which features sections directed by Gael García Bernal, Mia Wasikowska and Sebastián Silva. As always, holdovers from previous festivals, including Toronto’s polarizing “High-Rise,” round out the lineup.
I have add the AnOther Magazine photo shoot that Kristen did fir there 15th anniversary issue.
