  • Variety
On Wednesday, Agc Studios founder Stuart Ford, director Roland Emmerich and producer and co-writer Harald Kloser unveiled to buyers at Cannes’ Carlton Hotel one of the biggest-budgeted movie projects ever to be offered on the open market: Emmerich’s “Moonfall,” a $150 million sci-fi action-thriller.

To raise “Moonfall’s” finance, alongside partners CAA, Agc Studios by Wednesday morning was “already immersed in a wide range of discussions and negotiations from sources ranging across major studios to the big independents to Chinese and international equity investors, to local Chinese distributors,” Ford said.

Agc held a standing room-only informational meeting packed with a reported 500 international attendees — hailing from Brazil, China, Japan and France, to name a few places — at a chandelier-lined ballroom in the Carlton Hotel, which overlooks the Mediterranean and the Croisette.

The team hopes to finish “Midway,” currently in the final stretch of post-production, by mid-September, then begin prepping “Moonfall” in

Feature: All Grown Up – From Teen Star To Adult Star

Sky Cinema

Every generation has them – the teenage actors who make it big, either on TV or in the cinema. But what happens after that? Some simply don’t make the transition to adult stardom, for a whole host of reasons. Others continue their acting career but never hit the same heights again. And then there are those that go all the way, right to the top. Like Jodie Foster. After regular appearances on TV since the age of seven, she was just 12 when she controversially played a teenage prostitute in Scorsese’s Taxi Driver. Or Natalie Portman. Discovered at the age of 11, she made her debut in Leon, while Leonardo Di Caprio was still in his teens when he stunned as the intellectually challenged boy in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.

All three – and there are plenty more – went on to be A-listers and all won Oscars. So could

Frameline 2019: Judy Garland, Virginia Woolf Movies Head Up San Francisco Lgbtq Film Festival

Two documentaries will round out the centerpiece and closing night screenings: “Gay Chorus Deep South,” and the world premiere of the Judy Garland focused “Sid & Judy.”

“People question the place of film festivals in a now media-saturated culture, but the Festival is about communities: bringing everyone together to celebrate and expand our knowledge of the world around us, as well as ourselves,” Frameline Executive Director Frances Wallace said in a statement. “Frameline’s Festival attendance increased in 2018, and we predict a continued expansion of our audience this year.

Gemma Arterton & Elizabeth Debicki in UK Trailer for 'Vita & Virginia'

"Does she make you want to write or live?" "Both." Thunderbird Releasing has debuted an official UK trailer for a film titled Vita & Virginia, a romantic drama inspired by the letters written between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West. "A daring celebration of an unconventional bond, and a vivid exploration of gender, sexuality, creativity and passion, Vita & Virginia details the love story of two women - two writers - who smashed through social barriers to find solace in their forbidden connection." The film stars Gemma Arterton as Vita, and Elizabeth Debicki as Virginia, and is set in the 1920s in London. Despite the odds, the magnetic Vita and the beguiling Virginia forge an unconventional affair, set against the backdrop of their own strikingly contemporary marriages - which inspired one of Woolf’s most iconic novels, "Orlando". The cast includes Isabella Rossellini, Rupert Penry-Jones, Peter Ferdinando, Emerald Fennell, Gethin Anthony,

Jordan Peele’s ‘Lovecraft Country,’ Joss Whedon’s ‘The Nevers’ to Begin Filming This Summer

Jordan Peele’s ‘Lovecraft Country,’ Joss Whedon’s ‘The Nevers’ to Begin Filming This Summer
What do Jordan Peele and Joss Whedon have in common? Both prolific producers have ambitious HBO series that will soon be going into production.

TheWrap spoke with Casey Bloys, the pay-tv channel’s programming chief, on Friday about the status of the “Us” director’s “Lovecraft Country” and the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator’s “The Nevers,” two projects eagerly anticipated by fans of the Peeleverse and Whedonverse, respectively.

And lucky for both camps, those series are about to start filming.

“[Whedon] has been furiously writing the scripts,” Bloys assured us, regarding “The Nevers.” “He’s been writing, he has a staff, and we’re shooting this summer.”

Bloys couldn’t give us an exact production-start date, “but it’s sometime this summer in London.”

The Marvel Movies Debrief: Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Recap, Legacy, and McU Connections

Juliette Harrisson Apr 12, 2019

James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 keeps the charm of the first and gives new depth to its characters.

This article contains spoilers for Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and the wider McU. This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 sits in a slightly odd position – narratively, chronologically, critically, geographically...

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 was released about halfway through Phase 3 of the McU, in between Doctor Strange and Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, if you’ve paid close attention to the movie, you’ll know that it sits much earlier in the timeline.

Guardians 2 takes place only a couple of months after Guardians 1, while Baby Groot is still a baby, only 34 years after Peter’s parents met. If you’re watching the McU movies in internal chronological order, Guardians 2 comes immediately after Guardians 1 and before Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Robert Pattinson on New Christopher Nolan Project: It's the Length of 3 Movies
Robert Pattinson says Christopher Nolan's New Movie is nearly the length of three movies. We're largely in the dark about Nolan's highly anticipated new project, but details are slowly starting to come together. Pattinson was recently announced as one of the stars of the movie, along with John David Washington and Elizabeth Debicki, and he recently revealed he was not able to take a copy of the script home and was only able to read it in a locked room, which is some Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm-type secrecy tactics.

In a new interview promoting High Life, Robert Pattinson briefly brought up the Christopher Nolan movie, which he is happy to be working on. After previously revealing the secrecy surrounding the project, Pattinson is shedding some light on what the movie will be like. He had this to say about working with important directors and Nolan's next movie.

Apparently Christopher Nolan's Mysterious New Film Is the "Length of Three Movies"

With Christopher Nolan’s new film being completely shrouded in mystery, any little bit of information that we get about it is worth sharing. After all, it is Christopher Nolan.

First of all, he says that the movie is one of the “craziest things” that he’s seen in a long time. He also teased that it’s the length of three movies! Here’s the full quote:

“Working with these important directors makes you feel more secure in the choices you’re making. Like, I’m doing a big movie with Christopher Nolan after this. It’s the craziest thing I’ve seen in years. It’s the length of three movies.”

So will the movie clock in at almost six hours long?
