Hot on the heels of the release of a massive batch of films that will appear in the Toronto Film Festival, we’ve got the main lineup for the 68th Venice Film Festival, which runs from August 31 to September 10.

We knew that George Clooney‘s The Ides of March would open the fest (the trailer premiered last night and you can see it here) and this list confirms quite a few films that we imagined would be playing Venice. Our very much anticipated spy thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy from Let the Right One In director Tomas Alfredson is on the list, as is Roman Polanski‘s tense closed-room drama Carnage, starring Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly and Christoph Waltz. And there is Alps, the second film from polarizing Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, whose film Dogtooth shocked, entertained and angered festival audiences in 2009.

The full list is after the break. Read More »

The Exchange

Clint Eastwood unveiled his latest movie at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this week. The Exchange (which is being released under it’s former title Changeling in the U.S.) stars Angelina Jolie as a mother whose young son suddenly vanishes. Set in 1928 Los Angeles and based on one of the most notorious crimes in LA history, Jolie’s character is suddenly confronted, months after the disappearance with a nine-year old boy claiming to be her missing son. The LAPD turns the “successful return” into a publicity stunt, while Jolie is convinced that the boy is not her son and is thrown in an insane asylum for disagreeing with the LAPD.

The Exchange

Our friends at Ioncinema called the film “another formulaic endeavor from Eastwood – nice looking, expensive film that fails to stick”. We have new photos and you can watch the first video clip by clicking the link below.
