Spider-Man: If Betty Looks Familiar, You Might Remember Her From Black Mirror

Spider-Man: If Betty Looks Familiar, You Might Remember Her From Black Mirror
Spider-Man: Far From Home shows us Peter Parker and his pals reeling from the shattering aftermath of Avengers: Endgame. Besides Mj and Peter's budding romance, there's another couple swinging into action: Ned and Betty. If your spidey senses are tingling about Ned's love interest, you've likely seen her around before. Betty's played by 18-year-old Australian actress Angourie Rice, who has appeared in a number of pop culture hits over the years.

Chances are that you've seen Spider-Man: Homecoming if you're tuning into the sequel. Rice also plays Betty in the first film, although her character is less fleshed out in the first Spider-Man movie. In the McU, Betty resembles the character Gwen Stacy, sporting a black headband. In the original Spider-Man film with Tobey Maguire, Betty was a newspaper secretary at The Daily Bugle played by Elizabeth Banks. Her character in the newer films is, obviously, a teenager, who reports

Elle Fanning Faints at Cannes Dinner Party

Elle Fanning Faints at Cannes Dinner Party
Elle Fanning, a member of this year’s Cannes jury, had a brief scare Monday night when she fainted at the Chopard Trophee dinner.

Festival director Thierry Fremaux had just introduced actor Francois Civil onstage when Fanning, star of “The Beguiled” and “Maleficent,” collapsed and fell off her chair nearby.

Fanning was sitting at a table next to sister Dakota Fanning, who helped the actress to her feet before security whisked them away.

According to eyewitness, the ceremony was briefly paused as a hush fell over the crowd.

Colin Firth, who was seated close-by, quickly leapt to his feet and offered assistance to the dazed actress. Another shocked onlooker, actress Marion Cotillard, placed a hand over her heart as Fanning was taken away by security.

Fanning later posted about the incident on her Instagram:

Beauty vs Beast: The Kindness of Strangers

Jason Adams from Mnpp here, using this week's brand new "Beauty vs Beast" poll to celebrate the 48th birthday of the great Sofia Coppola, which is tomorrow. We are so lucky to have her! Quite honestly I think the world's been under-valuing her directing career, which's given us one great film after another after another. Her last one, 2017's remake of The Beguiled, is where we're focusing today -- another entirely under-appreciated one if you ask me. While I've long been a fan of Don Siegel's sweaty 1971 version I consider Coppola's an improvement for how it spins itself off into a gothic fable of female empowerment gone to seed. It feels like a sister film to Nicole Kidman's other movie about haunted folks isolated during war-time, The Others -- seriously, go watch them back to back. That'll be an excellent evening at the movies. But until then...

Elle Fanning Reveals the Pop Anthem She Was Most Terrified of Performing in Teen Spirit

Elle Fanning Reveals the Pop Anthem She Was Most Terrified of Performing in Teen Spirit
Did you know that Elle Fanning can sing? And I don't mean she can carry a tune - I mean she can sing, sing. She has the type of raspy voice that turns a dingy small town bar into something far more intimate and could've launched her to buzzy pop stardom if she hadn't been so busy blowing us all away onscreen in films like 20th Century Women, The Neon Demon, and The Beguiled. And while the 21-year-old actress's latest movie, Teen Spirit, sees her tapping into the seemingly endless reservoir of depth and introspection she brings to every role, it also gives her a chance to show off a skill she hasn't really flexed for the world before.

The musical drama from first-time director Max Minghella blends the slick, neon-tinged allure of the music industry with the grit of what it really takes to make it as a star,

‘On the Rocks’: Marlon Wayans Joins Sofia Coppola’s Apple/A24 Movie

‘On the Rocks’: Marlon Wayans Joins Sofia Coppola’s Apple/A24 Movie
It comes as little surprise that Bill Murray is in Sofia Coppola’s upcoming “On the Rocks,” but the latest addition to the cast is a bit unusual: Marlon Wayans, who just joined the joint venture between Apple and A24. The actor, comedian, and screenwriter has mostly appeared in comedies throughout his career, from spoofs like “Scary Movie” and “A Haunted House” to TV series like “In Living Color” and his sitcom “Marlon,” but his filmography is not without auteur projects: Wayans worked with Darren Aronofsky on “Requiem for a Dream” and the Coen Brothers on “The Ladykillers.”

He’s also been involved with several Netflix projects of late, starring in 2017’s “Naked” and the upcoming “Sextuplets”; the streaming service also has exclusive rights to “Marlon” in many regions, advertising it as a Netflix Original outside the Us. Deadline first broke the news of his casting.

‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Trailer: Jim Jarmusch Unleashes Zombies on Adam Driver, Bill Murray, and More

‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Trailer: Jim Jarmusch Unleashes Zombies on Adam Driver, Bill Murray, and More
After the introspective drama of “Paterson,” Jim Jarmusch is ready to get wacky with his new feature “The Dead Don’t Die.” The latest from the indie film legend brings him back to the genre roots he explored in his vampire film “Only Lovers Left Alive,” only this time Jarmusch is putting his own stamp on the zombie movie. The film reunites Jarmusch with some of his biggest collaborators, including Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, and Bill Murray.

“The Dead Don’t Die” stars Driver and Murray as local cops who must spring into action when a zombie outbreak begins affecting the town’s citizens. Jarmusch shot the movie in upstate New York, and Murray has gone on record saying the director has “written a zombie script that’s so hilarious.” Further plot specifics are remaining under wraps, although Jarmusch has assembled his most star-studded ensemble cast to date with Driver,

Happy Monday to one and all, Jason from Mnpp here with this week's brand new edition of "Beauty vs Beast" -- enfant terrible provocateur Harmoney Korine is tossing another neon grenade our way this forthcoming Friday with his film The Beach Bum (reviewed at SXSW), twisting our sexual stoner preconceptions of Matthew McConaughey to suit his perverse needs. So for this week's contest, with Britney's voice still warbling in our heads, let's toss it back seven years to Korine's last much celebrated ode to the wacky Florida lifestyle, Spring Breakers.

Film Review: ‘The Sower’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘The Sower’
A different version of “The Sower,” Marine Francen’s poised and petite freshman feature, might have included the extended, rather remarkable story behind its literary source. Aged 84, former village schoolteacher Violette Ailhaud wrote her autobiographical short story “L’homme semence” in 1919, passing it to an attorney with clear instructions that it be given to her eldest female descendant in 1952, a full century after the events it documents; a curious, bittersweet tale of lost innocence and sexual conspiracy in a community of women, it remained in the family for half a century before being published, to steadily building acclaim, in 2006. Some manner of film adaptation was inevitable. Francen’s, however, honors Ailhaud by telling only the story she wrote, albeit with subtly modernized language and aesthetics, underlining its enduringly provocative gender politics in the process.

The resulting film is so delicately wrought and exquisitely visualized that the harsher, eerier details of
