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.
Fortitude will launch the project to foreign buyers at Berlin’s European Film Market; Justin Kelly is writing and directing.
Kristen Stewart, James Franco and Helena Bonham Carter are circling the biopic JT Leroy, a Hollywood-set transgender story.
Justin Kelly, who directed James Franco in 2015’s I Am Michael, will helm the film from a script he wrote. The true story goes behind the scenes of the hoax of JT LeRoy, a woman who pretended to be a man who identifies as transgender, tricking the rich and famous in Hollywood, the fashion world and elite literary circles.
The biopic will be based on memoir and life rights of Savannah Kroop, who was behind the complicated ruse. LBI Entertainment, Aquarius and Rabbit Bandini Productions are producing with Aquarius providing equity financing.
Franco is attached while Stewart and Carter are currently in negotiations. Fortitude International will launch the project to foreign buyers at Berlin’s European Film Market, with a 2016 production start date planned. CAA is repping domestic rights.
Kelly is no stranger to bringing fascinating real-life tales to the big screen. I am Michael, which was based on New York Times Magazine article My Ex-Gay Friend, centered on a man, Michael Glatze, a gay activist who renounced homosexuality after he became a Christian pastor. It screened at both Sundance and Berlin in 2015. He’s repped by CAA and LBI Entertainment.
Kristen Stewart has been named the new face of Chanel makeup, and will star in the 2016 “Collection Eyes” campaign.
Stewart posed for famed photographer Mario Testino, and while the full ad campaign won’t be released until March, the teaser photo at right should whet fans’ appetites. According to the esteemed brand, the goal behind the portraits is to showcase the “various facets of the contemporary Chanel woman.” Stewart herself has not yet commented.
The actress and Chanel have had a successful working relationship for years now, with Stewart becoming something of a muse for Karl Lagerfeld. Most recently, in December, she starred in Lagerfeld’s “Once and Forever” short film. Stewart has also modeled in several Chanel runway shows, been the face of the company’s eyewear campaign, and promoted everything from their handbags to designer duds.
