Grace Of Monaco
Most films headed to the Cannes Film Festival keep their cards close to the chest, revealing as little as possible before making their grand premiere on the Croisette. Not so with "Grace Of Monaco." Olivier Dahan's upcoming drama overcame a rumored clash with Harvey Weinstein to land the opening slot at Cannes in May. And now a three-minute trailer and over fifty new images have dropped to show off the goods that Dahan and Weinstein are bringing to France in just a couple of months.

Upon introducing his latest film, “I’m So Excited” at the opening night of the Los Angeles Film Festival, Pedro Almodovar took care to explain that in Spanish, the title of his film has a double meaning— as he said, “horny.” And yes, the characters aboard his doomed flight are indeed, very, very libidinous. Almodovar also explained that “I’m So Excited” allows him to take a catastrophe and turn it into a party. With that idea in mind, it helps to see the bigger picture Almodovar is trying to paint with what seems like a silly sex farce on a plane.

Opera legend Maria Callas has been a talent many have sought to bring to the big screen, with a couple of biopics brewing in the past few years including one by Niki Caro that needs script work and has Eva Green on board, and another with Eva Mendes attached to star. However, before either of those projects come to fruition, it looks like Callas will first be played by Paz Vega in Olivier Dahan's "Grace Of Monaco" starring Nicole Kidman as "Rear Window" actress turned Monaco princess, Grace Kelly.

Pedro Almodovar likes to use talent who have worked with him before, from picture to picture if possible, and his next film, "Standby Lovers," ("Los amantes pasajeros") is proving to be no different. Thus far Lola Duenas ("Volver"), Cecilia Roth ("All About My Mother") and Javier Camara ("Talk To Her") are all part of the cast with Spanish comedians Carlos Areces and Raul Arevalo along with Jose Maria Yazpik rounding things out. But Almodovar isn't done putting together the actors for his movie, and once again he's gone into his contacts.

John Stockwell's movies as a director pop and fizzle like the sensation of opening a soda can. He's focused primarily, almost cynically, on the youth market, with films like "Blue Crush" and "Turistas" exploring the exoticism of sensual, almost exclusively American youthful exuberance. Unfortunately, the budgets and grosses have shrunk, and Stockwell finds himself on the periphery of a filmmaking culture, as someone who makes punchy cinematic candy that no one wants to consume.
