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.

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.

Kristen Stewart may have become a household name on the strength of one of the biggest studio franchises in recent memory, but since Twilight wrapped up in 2012 she’s established herself as an indie darling. Earlier this year she garnered tons of buzz for her turns in Still Alice and Clouds of Sils Maria, and next year she’ll be back with four or five more titles including Tim Blake Nelson‘s Anesthesia.
The ensemble drama, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, hinges on a violent attack against a well liked professor (played by Sam Waterston). The film jumps back a week to explain how the incident came to back, focusing on a seemingly disparate cast of characters played by Nelson, Stewart, Glenn Close, Corey Stoll, Gretchen Mol, Michael K. Williams, and more. Watch the Anesthesia trailer after the jump. Read More »
Just last week, Marvel Studios officially announced a sequel to this past summer’s Phase Two title Ant-Man. The follow-up will be called Ant-Man and The Wasp, following up the Ant-Man credits teaser revealing Hope Van Dyne (daughter of Hank Pym, played by Evangeline Lilly) would get her own superhero suit to join Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) on his Ant-Man adventures.
But if for some reason you weren’t satisfied with the more isolated, low-key superhero flick, you might find some playful jabs at the movie from the folks at How It Should Have Ended to be right up your alley. They point out some amusing details and shortcomings that the film kind of glosses over, but if you get lost in the film and ignore those elements, then it’s all good, right? Read More »

If you haven’t been impressed with the work Johnny Depp has been putting out over the past decade, with disappointments like Mortdecai, The Tourist, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence, and tired Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, it looks like Black Mass might restore your faith in the actor.
A new trailer for the crime thriller from Crazy Heart and Out of the Furnace director Scott Cooper has just surfaced showing off more of what appears to be an Oscar-worthy performance from Johnny Depp as the infamous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, who was given free criminal reign thanks to his brother (Benedict Cumberbatch) being situated at the FBI.
