The Coen brothers latest movie appears to have a real chance of scooping the Palme D'Or this year.
The Coen brothers eighth placement in the competition for the prestigious Palme D'Or at the Cannes Film Festival could be their strongest chance since Barton Fink, which won the award in 1991. It's been six years since the filmmakers have been in competition at Cannes though it seems Inside Llewyn Davis could see the brothers back with a bang.
Llewyn (Oscar Isaac) At Jim and Jean's Apartment
The movie, loosely based on Dave Von Ronk's posthumously published memoir The Mayor of MacDougal Street, follows Oscar Issac as a singer-songwriter who navigates the testing New York folk music scene of the 1960s. The film, boasting an all-star casting including Isaac, Carey Mulligan (The Great Gatsby), Justin Timberlake (The Social Network), Garrett Hudlund (On The Road), Adam Driver (Girls) and John Goodman (Argo), Inside Llewyn Davis appears to have all the attributes of a possible Palme D'Or winner and the Coens appear to have spent time making it the best movie possible. It is believed the brothers could have rushed the film into last year's Oscar season though decided against it. Timberlake has contributed to the movie's soundtrack, as has Mulligan's husband Marcus Mumford and T Bone Burnett, who helped shift 8 million copies of the O Brother, Where Art Thou? score.
Watch The 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Trailer!
Llewyn Davis is a struggling folk musician attempting to find his place in the world by scouring New York's Greenwich Village at the height of folk in 1961. Along the way he meets old friends who are not particularly happy to see him because of his own unresolved mistakes in the past, and while he strives to find a venue to do what he loves doing, hitchhiking across roads in the freezing winter with a beat-up guitar and a homeless cat, he is forced to question not only himself as a person, but also where and what he really wants his future to be.
'Inside Llewyn Davis' is an emotional musical drama written and directed by Oscar winners Ethan Coen and Joel Coen, aka The Coen Brothers ('No Country for Old Men', 'True Grit', 'Fargo'). It has been very loosely based on the posthumous 2005 memoirs 'The Mayor of MacDougal Street' by the late New York folk artist Dave Van Ronk, and has been nominated to compete for the sought after Palme d'Or prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. This passionate story about love, music, finding oneself and learning from one's mistakes will hit screens in the UK on January 24th 2014.
James Franco may have let slip who’s on board to direct Fifty Shades of Grey. The actor was speaking to the Sunday Times at the Sundance Festival and revealed that he was under the impression that Gus Van Sant was on board to do it. And, he revealed, if the Good Will Hunting director was on board, he’d be in favour of stepping into the hotkey-contested role of Christian Grey.
“It sounds interesting,” said Franco, when asked about the forthcoming novel adaptation. “I heard Gus [Van Sant] might direct it. If he directed it, I'd do it.” It wouldn’t be the first time that Franco had been involved in a cinematic BDSM adventure, either. He produced the BDSM documentary Kink as well as playing the role of Hugh Hefner in the porn biopic Lovelace. Gus Van Sant is no stranger to a controversial subject matter, either, with movies such as My Own Private Idaho and Drugstore Cowboy under his belt. Interestingly, as Examiner.com reported, Van Sant recently finished filming Promised Land, with the very same production company being used on Fifty Shades of Grey.
Fans of Fifty Shades are starting get impatient, waiting to find out who will be cast in the movie, as well as who will helm the production from the director’s chair. A number of fan-made ‘trailers’ have surfaced, including one with Amanda Seyfried and Garrett Hedlund but excited fans will be disappointed to learn that the movie has not been cast yet.
On The Road has long since had its premiere, but it was still one of the most hotly-talked about films at the annual AFI Festival in Hollywood over the weekend, as the stars flocked to its showing. Taking center stage was Kristen Stewart, as she tends to do, but she was joined by several others including Amy Adams, who definitely won the style awards with a black shoulderless dress that billowed out in black and green leaf design.

Remember when Taylor Swift joked with Ellen DeGeneres about how many failed relationships she's had, and remember how it was kind of OK because she was going pretty strong with Conor Kennedy? Well forget that, forget all of that, because the once inseparable couple has now split.
Yep, after an intense summer romance that reportedly saw Taylor buy a home near the Kennedy family compound, the pair have decided to go their own separate ways. US Weekly were first to report the news, though there has been no immediate comment from Swift's representative. At least now the We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together singer has plenty of material for her next album. We're kind of sceptical about the whole thing, remember, Swift has an album to promote Red which is billed as her latest 'heartbreak record' and it's likely to debut at No.1 on the Billboard 200 next week. A little breakup story isn't going to hurt now is it? If it is true though, Kennedy will be sent to the Taylor Swift scrapheap - a remote location where Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Garrett Hedlund, Joe Jonas and Lucas Till huddle together and describe their terrible experiences in love.
It all makes sense, really. Taylor has been working non-stop to promote Red in recent months, while Conor stepped out solo earlier this month at the premiere of the HBO documentary on his grandmother, Ethel.

It was one of the most revered and respected tomes from the beat-era of the 1950s and 1960s, so it's no surprise that a film remake of it was going to be getting some particularly harsh scrutiny. Nevertheless, IFC Films will be a little worried about the reception that it has got, with reviewers seeming to fall on either side of the fence.
The Daily Telegraph are loving it. "[Garrett Hedlund] is a gritty revelation, desperate and magnetic." They say of the leading actor. "Dean's constant need for sex is understood as a sign of damage, part of the same compulsion that sends him all over America, bouncing between wives." Empire Magazine too are full of plaudits for it; "A decent, well-cast and mounted adaptation that hits all the right notes but plays them in a respectful, muted monotone" they say.
The New York Times though don't think that the film goes far enough. "Salles, an intelligent director whose films include "The Motorcycle Diaries," doesn't invest "On the Road" with the wildness it needs for its visual style, narrative approach and leads" they say. Variety are similarly unimpressed, saying "Despite the high level of craft here, it's an inadequate substitute for the thrilling, sustaining intelligence of Kerouac's voice." One saving grace for the studios is that the book of 'On The Road', written by Jack Kerouac, caused similar division when it was released back in 1957.
Despite the skill behind and in front of the camera, a badly constructed script flattens this film version of Jack Kerouac's iconic 1957 novel. It's beautifully shot and sharply played by the starry ensemble cast, but the repetitive structure leaves the film with no forward momentum. Instead of a voyage of discovery, it feels like a lot of random, pointless wandering.
Thinly autobiographical, the story centres on the young New York writer Sal (Riley). He's drawn to the charismatic Dean (Moriarty), a charming rogue who's married to 16-year-old Marylou (Stewart) but is having an affair with Camille (Dunst) while seducing every other woman he meets. And quite a few men as well, including Sal's friend Carlo (Sturridge). All of them are writers and artists, hanging out in clouds of hash smoke as they drive back and forth across America in search of something to write about.
Of course, Sal finds this in Dean as their friendship ebbs and flows over several years. Since this is essentially Sal's story, it's rather odd that the film abandons him from time to time to follow someone else, leaping jarringly into another situation, often marked by Dean's sudden reappearance after yet another bit of roaming. So while we understand how everyone is held in Dean's magnetic orbit, we can't quite see the point of it all. Sal may be obsessed with his thoughts of Dean, but he seems strangely willing to abandon him time and time again. There isn't nearly enough of the scene-stealing costars like Mortensen, Adams and Buscemi. And frankly, it should be a crime to waste Moss (of Mad Men fame) in such a fragmented role.

I could have written a similar book (though perhaps not when I was fifteen) but I never guessed that the Tolkien estate and Lucasfilm would have given permission to use all of their ideas. As one of Paolini's characters says, forgiveness is easier than permission, and everyone seems to have forgiven Paolini (up to a point -- we''ll see how well the movie does). That's good, because every major plot point in Eragon is ripped off from The Lord of the Rings or the Star Wars series (with occasional ripoffs, probably subconscious, from other sources, like The Wizard of Oz). In fact, Eragon is so derivative it's surprising that it even got published. Or it would be, if publishing houses still had standards.

Mark Wahlberg is perfectly cast in "Four Brothers" as an angry, scruffy Detroit greaseball who returns home for the first time in years to avenge his foster-mother's murder during a convenience store robbery.
While not an actor known for his emotional range, here his soft-featured scowl embodies resounding heartbreak without giving an inch on the kind of toughness and bravado that makes his character a loose cannon. How loose? He even tells the investigating cops (one an old friend played by the sublime Terrence Howard) who come to pay their respects that "I'm not here for the funeral."
Reunited with his three brothers -- fellow former delinquents adopted by the kindly but adamant Evelyn Mercer (Fionnula Flanagan), and played by Garrett Hedlund ("Troy") and talented rappers-turned-actors Andre Benjamin and Tyrese Gibson -- it isn't long before they're literally beating a path through the ghetto toward any suspects they can get their hands on. And it isn't long after that before a conspiracy begins to emerge (the details of which are never entirely clear) involving bankruptcy and insurance money, connections to the mob, and crooked cops and city councilmen.
