Since directing the teenage thieving romp The Bling Ring, director Sofia Coppola has been pretty low key on the filmmaking front. While she was initially slated to direct an adaptation of The Little Mermaid at Universal, she fell away from the project back in June this summer. And the only definitely project she has coming up is a Netflix Christmas special starring her Lost in Translation lead Bill Murray.
However, some new information has come to light pointing to a new Kirsten Dunst Sofia Coppola project sometime in 2016, which would mark their third time working together following The Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette. Read More »

After setting the mood with a series of cryptic teasers, Fargo Season 2 has finally dropped its first real trailer. Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Jean Smart, Jeffrey Donovan, and more show up to tease the new season, which promises the same delightful mix of chilly weather, jarring violence, dry humor, and Minnesota nice that made the first one such a hit.

One of the best films of the new century is undoubtedly Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It’s an innovative, beautiful, mesmerizing, heartbreaking and simultaneously uplifting romance. The Charlie Kaufman scripted, Michel Gondry directed film is one of my five favorites of all time, and I’ve explored and read about every facet of the film.
But there might be some of you out there who haven’t dug as deep. That’s why I wanted to post this featurette that dives into the unique and quaint visual effects of the film. Michel Gondry is known for using some interesting practical production methods, but this featurette looks at the seamless digital visual effects that helped complete the film. There are some effects here that you probably didn’t even notice.

Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons are bundling up and heading up north.

More details on the Fargo season 2 Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst casting after the jump. Read More »
Last time we checked in on The Two Faces of January, the film didn’t have a US release date set. There was reason to hope for one, as the film stars Viggo Mordetensen, Kirsten Dunst, and Oscar Isaac in an adaptation of the novel by Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mr. Ripley).
This Two Faces of January trailer starts off a bit different than the last one — it introduces Mortensen and Dunst as an American couple abroad, and shows how they get into trouble when the past catches up with them. And then Oscar Isaac steps in to help, and things start to get complicated. Knowing Highsmith’s plots, there will be more twists than the ones promises here. Watch below! Read More »
If Inside Llewyn Davis whet your appetite to see a lot more from actor Oscar Isaac, the new Patricia Highsmith adaptation The Two Faces of January is hitting at just the right time. The film stars Isaac, Viggo Mortensen, and Kirsten Dunst in a story about a vacationing couple, not exactly squeaky lean folk, who fall into a business relationship with a scamming “tour guide.” When the couple gets into some serious trouble they call upon the guide for less-than-legal assistance.
Highsmith wrote many of her prime thrillers in the ’50s and ’60s, and like another well-known Highsmith adaptation The Talented Mr. Ripley, this film preserves the time period in which the novel was written. In this case, the setting is 1962, which gives director Hossein Amini (who wrote Drive) plenty of opportunity to photograph his attractive cast in great period costumes. Check out a trailer below, which also acts as a chance to see Mortensen in a relatively rare turn as an out and out heavy. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Briefly: Ridley Scott is prepping Exodus, his film about Moses, at Fox. Christian Bale is set to play Moses, and now Scott is looking to Joel Edgerton to play Ramses (or Ramesses II). The actor is in early talks now for the role. Adam Cooper and Bill Collage scripted the film, and Steven Zaillian did a rewrite. This is one of two high-profile Moses films that have been in development in the past year. The other is Gods and Kings, which Steven Spielberg was set to make for a while. He ultimately dropped out, and the film doesn’t have a director at this point.
Edgerton, as you can see thanks to the pic above, isn’t the first guy that comes to mind for an Egyptian ruler who is contemporary to Moses. Perhaps there’s some unexpected element in the script that makes Edgerton suited for the role in a way that isn’t obvious from afar. He’s a fine actor, no argument, but this choice will kickstart arguments about whitewashed casting.
A more obviously great placement for Edgerton is in Jeff Nichols‘ new film Midnight Special, which will feature him alongside Michael Shannon. Deadline announces that Kirsten Dunst has also signed on for the sci-fi tinged chase film. [THR]

No, that header image isn’t flipped — Kirsten Dunst‘s world is. She and Jim Sturgess are the stars of Upside Down, Juan Diego Solanas‘ sci-fi romance about star-crossed lovers in two adjacent planets with opposite gravitational pulls. Though the pair meet and fall in love in childhood, they’re unable to be together because strict laws forbid them from entering each other’s worlds.
We’ve been tracking the film since about 2009, and finally got our first look at some footage when the international trailer hit about a year ago. Now, at long last, we have a domestic trailer to share. Check it out after the jump.
