COMMENT DU JOUR
The BIG EYES Poster

"I didn't even notice the stars at first but that's why I like it. Tag line is clever. I hope Burton gone substance over style (while being stylish) with this one." - Jija

"The art is ugly creepy kitsch... that is, slightly above dogs playing pool and black-velvet Elvis. I have a hard time grasping why we should care who created it..." - Owen

The Festival They Inhabit.

Jose here to announce this year's Cannes Film Festival lineup.

As usual, Cannes will fill the Croisette with names we've heard year after year, but when those names are Pedro Almodóvar, the Dardenne brothers and Lars von Trier, you won't listen to much complains from our side.

This year the official lineup will include the following films:

Link As We Know It

i09 offers a look at the clockwork man in Scorsese's The Invention of Hugo Cabret
Gold Derby wonders if Oscar winner Estelle Parsons (Bonnie & Clyde) has a Tony Award in her very near future.
In Contention Guy shares his review plans for The Tree of Life in light of its premiere plans. And the new poster. Why yes, reader, here it is. Enjoy.

Gold Derby Academy to honor Sophia Loren in May
Playbill Kristin Chenoweth is coming back to Broadway. Details are unknown but bliss will surely follow.
Self Styled Siren 10 Films that the Siren Should Love But Doesn't. What a fun idea for a list. It's not classics you don't like that everyone else does... it's films you should like, given what you typically respond to, but just don't.

Finally...here's the Onion's vicious but laugh out loud funny Katharine Heigl tragedy "In Freak Accident, 34 Katherine Keigl Films Released At Once." Thanks to Glenn for pointing it out.


In Freak Accident, 34 Katherine Heigl Films Released At Once

So so funny though that Venus & Mars poster / concept reads 100% like a real movie. For a second I thought it was. My favorite bit was the 700% rise in self-blindings and the stressed EMT.

We're doing the best we can out here but the movies are just coming out too fast.

In truth I am one of those rare souls who kind of likes Katharine Heigl. BUT here is how I escaped the hatred: I didn't see all these crappy movies she stars in and I only watched like one season of Grey's Anatomy because it was a shlocky gooey mess. If there is one star in need of saying "no" unless it's a prestige project with A list director next time, it's her. She has enough money. A hiatus until a quality offer shows itself is the only answer to turn this ship around.

Handful of Link, Globe Fever

Stale Popcorn The best Burlesque review you may ever read. A delight.
THR Ridley Scott's Alien prequel is transforming into something else.
Guardian on the female villain rumors for The Dark Knight Rises. Although many strange assumptions are made in the article such as Chris Nolan would resist casting a non A lister. Okay maybe that last one is a safe bet but it's still weird. Nolan is a powerful enough director to cast whoever he wants and the franchise sells itself so one wonders why he does only cast big names. Why not make a star?
Variety France's Lumiére Awards went to their Oscar submission Of Gods and Men (Picture & Actor) and Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer (Director & Screenplay).


Deadline Ben Foster signed to Fernando Meirelles "loose" adaptation of La Ronde. Infidelity ~ a fresh new motion picture topic!
AV Club Banksy's identity for sale on eBay? Hee.
Movie|Line Jacki Weaver appeals to Tarantino's foot fetish. Amusing/strange bit.
24 Frames the great cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki on Terrence Malicks Tree of Life (coming soon).
IndieWire Luca Guadagnino reflects on I Am Love's success going into the biggest awards weekend of the year (other than Oscar weekend of course)

Golden Globes on The Brain
Towleroad A Golden Globe drinking game devised by moi. Dare I do it whilst live blogging Sunday? Will you join me?
MNPP has five wishes for the The Golden Globes that feel directly pulled from my brain even though JA's brain is surely inimitable.
Movie|Line 5 times the Globes were smarter than Oscar
