Rumors had been swirling for awhile that Woody Allen‘s next film, titled Cafe Society, would open the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. Today an official announcement confirmed those rumors, making this the third time Allen has opened the French film festival. Hollywood Ending and Midnight in Paris had the honor in 2002 and 2011 respectively.
Cafe Society, starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, will premiere at the festival on May 11th, and along with this news, we finally have an official logline. In traditional Woody Allen fashion, it doesn’t tell us a whole lot about what we can expect from the romance, but some details were recently revealed by cinemtographer Vittorio Storaro. In addition, a new photo from the movie was revealed that you can see below.

Whiplash was 2014’s little film that could: the $3 million picture took Sundance by storm, won three Oscars and got nominated for two more, grossed $49 million in all, and put director Damien Chazelle on the map as an up-and-comer to watch. No surprise, then, that Lionsgate is hoping Chazelle will be able to work a similar magic with his next film, La La Land. The studio has pushed the musical romance, which stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, from July 15, 2016 to December, putting it right in the thick of awards season. Read More »
Even though Brooklyn was nominated for big categories like Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay at the 88th Academy Awards, the film ended up going home empty-handed.

Teen Wolf – Wolf + Witch = How Did This Get Made?
Although dueling accounts exist with regards to the origin of Teen Witch, both versions credit their inspiration from the formula above (Teen Wolf – Wolf + Witch). Given its origin, one might expect that Teen Witch would feel dastardly derivative. But no matter how you feel about the movie—some absolutely, overwhelmingly adore it; while others view it as the quintessential ’80s bad movie—nobody can deny that Teen Witch feels unique unto itself. It has sincerity, it has heart. And it also has—unlike the original draft of the script—lots of music and dancing. How, exactly, did these ingredients enter the equation? And, one can’t help but wonder, does that explanation provide us with clues as to why this movie has aged the way it has?

For the past forty years, Woody Allen has reliably churned out one film per year. And for the past seven years, Sony Picture Classics has been faithfully by his side to put them out. But even Woody Allen needs a change of pace from time to time. So his next movie is going not to Sony, but to Amazon Studios, which also commissioned his first-ever TV series last year.
Come to think of it, Allen is basically living the plot of one of his own movies. Allen, of course, is the neurotic, intellectual older man who finds himself in a rut, and Amazon Studios is the lively, perky, much younger woman whom he doesn’t quite understand, but nevertheless proves to be just the person to help break him out of that funk.
