The Immigrant
“I thought there was something very beautiful about exploring a melodrama from a female protagonist's perspective because all of a sudden I would be free from the constraints of, what I would call, macho posturing, male behavior and get straight to the emotional heart of it,” director James Gray said last fall of his upcoming drama “The Immigrant,” which stars Marion Cotillard.

As if the cast of John Hillcoat's "Triple Nine" wasn't awesome enough with Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Michael Pena, Teresa Palmer and Gal Gadot already on board, well it just got even better.

Two Days, One Night
Probably the closest the French auteur siblings have ever gotten to a "mainstream" film (though its French language will ensure its place in arthouses, instead of multiplexes), Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's "Two Days, One Night" is notable not just for being the next effort from the usually flawless filmmakers, but it boasts a major name in the lead role, in what sounds like an unusually topical movie from the directors.

Marion Cotillard Says She's Keeping Her French Accent For 'Macbeth' With Michael Fassbender

Marion Cotillard, Cannes
Michael Fassbender + Marion Cotillard + "Macbeth" = ticket sold as far we're concerned, and while we can't wait to see the result (it's one our 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2014... if it gets finished and released in time) we remain very curious about the approach. The Shakespeare play is one of the most frequently performed and adapted, though not so much for the big screen, and the Bard has always proven flexible to filmmakers who push his material to the edge. However, what we weren't perhaps expecting is that "the Scottish play" will have French flavor. Read More »

Review: R-Rated, Extended Cut Of 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues'

Earlier this week, Paul Rudd visited “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” to welcome Fallon to his new gig as host and, ostensibly, to plug the rerelease of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” which begins a weeklong run in an extended, R-rated cut this weekend. When the always-excitable Fallon asked Rudd what the longer cut was like, Rudd paused and said, “It’s just weird.” This is the easiest way to describe the new version of “Anchorman 2,” an oversized comedy so shapeless and bizarre that it borders on being experimental. Gone is any sense of pacing or propriety; in its place is sheer, go-for-broke goofiness. It doesn’t always work, but it’s probably the most fascinating thing being released in theaters this weekend.

Certainly, replicating the look of '70s New York City is easy enough — just make everything bigger. The hair, the jeans, the attitude...if you wear it all with confidence and a bit of flamboyance, you can pull it off. And while "Blood Ties" has the look of a Sidney Lumet or William Friedkin movie of the period, it doesn't quite capture the essence of those films. But there are plenty of reasons why should check out it.

The Immigrant
"... restrained, thoughtful filmmaking that satisfies on nearly every level" is how we described James Gray's "The Immigrant" out of the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, but due to the whims and caprices of Harvey Weinstein, the film has been held until 2014. With the picture now playing internationally there is no shortage of promo material popping up, and today we round up the latest batch.

Magic, prostitution, immigration and the American Dream—not exactly the most obvious ingredients to mix together, but James Gray has done just that with "The Immigrant." His look at the experience and hardship of traveling through Ellis Island in the early 1900s forms the basis of his new movie, one that is opening overseas after premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this year. For those of us eager to see the movie for ourselves, this new clip will have to suffice for now.

The Immigrant
Nope, sorry, James Gray's "The Immigrant" still remains without a firm U.S. release date so we'll just have to look overseas with envy as France gets ready to unveil the movie in their cinemas soon. And if there is one international language that all films speak, it's marketing and so with that in mind, a new clip from the movie has arrived.

The Immigrant
It's been slow going for James Gray's period epic "The Immigrant." The film, which stars Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner, debuted at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it was up for the Palme d'Or (it lost to "Blue is the Warmest Color"), but since then there hasn't been much news. The Weinstein Company is scheduled to handle domestic distribution, but didn't schedule the lengthy historical drama for awards consideration (some have speculated that the film will go directly to On Demand services) and aside from a few festival presentations, remains largely unseen. Thankfully a November release date is still planned for France, which has provided us with the first-ever trailer for the film (via Elle).
