Quentin Tarantino has finalized the cast for his next film, The Hateful Eight. We already knew almost all of them: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Now two new names have been added. Yes, Channing Tatum is one of them. The other is Demian Bichir, the Oscar-nominated star of A Better Life and current star of The Bridge.

Oliver Hirschbiegel’s Diana has already been thoroughly panned by critics across the pond, but maybe the second of this fall’s two princess biopics will meet a better fate.
The first teaser has been revealed for Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman as movie star-turned-royal Grace Kelly. Olivier Dahan (La Vie en Rose) directs, and Tim Roth and Frank Langella also star. Check out the footage after the jump.

It’s easy to be pessimistic about the state of David Lynch‘s film career at this point. Outside the occasional fashion ad, music video or (admittedly pretty awesome) short film, the guy doesn’t now fall back to the movie camera as his primary creative device.
But there are signs that he’s not done with film yet. One is the revelation that he’s working on a new feature script. And the other is that his occasional acting resume will be bolstered with an appearance in the new film from his daughter, Jennifer Lynch. Read More »
The subtitles here are in French, so this trailer won’t give you many of the core plot details of the French thriller Mobius, but you’ll definitely be able to latch on to the film’s tone and catch a glimpse of the cast at work. The big draw here for some will be Jean Dujardin, last seen in his Oscar-winning turn in The Artist. But for me, it’s Cécile de France, who has been brutal in Haute Tension and simultaneously tough and tender in The Kid With a Bike.
Mobius was both written and directed by French filmmaker Eric Rochant (Love Without Pity, Long Live the Republic) and looks like a straight-up thriller with a potentially good mix of modern look and classic tone. Read More »

Sundance was several months ago, but for those of us who didn’t attend, these next few months are going to be a good time to catch up on this year’s crop of Sundance hits. Safety Not Guaranteed has already landed theaters in some cities, Beasts of the Southern Wild is hitting tomorrow, The Queen of Versailles is due out next month, and Robot and Frank is slotted for August. Add to that list Nicholas Jarecki‘s white-collar thriller Arbitrage, which is now getting the word out for its September release.
Richard Gere stars as a billionaire CEO whose success turns out to be built on little more than lies and deceit. When a horrible error threatens to expose him for a fraud, he finds himself sinking to ever-more-despicable depths to try and cover up his mistake. Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth, and Brit Marling also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

There are actors who seem like guys David Cronenberg simply must work with — James Woods, Peter Weller, Viggo Mortensen, Ralph Fiennes, and even Jeff Goldblum help define a ‘type’ that seems like the template that works for Cronenberg. Strong features, a particular mix of energy, chaos and both physical and emotional vulnerability, no matter the man’s stature. Tim Roth fits into that type pretty well, but actor and director have never worked together.
That, thankfully, changes now, as Cronenberg and Media Rights Captiol have picked Roth to star as surgical pioneer John Tattersall, who will be the lead character of the TV series Knifeman. Read More »

Great art is often derived from tragedy so it makes perfect sense that the economic crisis has been the subject of so many recent movies. Arbitrage, the directorial debut of Nicholas Jarecki, is the latest in a continuing line of films concerning the troubled economy and one of the best yet.
Richard Gere plays Robert Miller, a billionaire CEO who is trying to sell his company. He’s also cheating on his wife (Susan Sarandon), deceiving his co-worker/daughter (Brit Marling), and he eventually gets wrapped up in police investigation run by Tim Roth.
It all sounds so cliche, but Jarecki’s script transcends that by giving his audience real issues to chew on and characters to learn from. Arbitrage had its world premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and you can read more after the jump.
