The Little Prince Trailer


A Little Girl's Mother has high expectations of her daughter, given her own career success, and thus takes it upon herself to plan out her entire life, complete with a rigorous study and exercise schedule. The Little Girl agrees to knuckle down at first, but soon finds herself distracted by her peculiar elderly neighbour, The Aviator, who wishes to tell her the story of his encounter with The Little Prince - an other worldly being who lived on an astronaut before landing in the middle of a desert on Earth. The Little Girl is fascinated by the tale, and starts to understand what the most important things are in life, such as friendship. She starts to lament the idea of growing up and the idea of forgetting the significant things she understands as a child; that only the heart can give her a true vision in life.

The Interview Review


OK

There's half of a great satire here, as Seth Rogen, James Franco and Evan Goldberg combine that freewheeling mayhem from This Is the End with some more pointed political comedy. But in its second half, the script begins to repeat its less-funny jokes, wallowing in smutty gags and excessive violence. These things may please the chuckleheads in the audience, but they wear everyone else out. And they make us work to see the film's much more enjoyable brom-com plot and sharp social commentary.

The story is centred around swaggering TV personality Dave Skylark (Franco), whose chat show majors in shocking celebrity revelations like Eminem's homosexuality or Rob Lowe's baldness. Dave's producer Aaron (Rogen) is feeling like a second-class newsmaker when he discovers that North Korean despot Kim Jong-un (Randall Park) is a fan of Dave's show and is willing to be interviewed live on camera. Then before they can head off, two CIA operatives (Lizzy Caplan and Reese Alexander) convince Dave and Aaron to assassinate Kim with a deadly drug. And when they arrive in Pongyang their mission is complicated when Aaron falls for Kim's media director Sook (Diana Bang) and Dave falls for Kim himself.

Yes, the film has a fairly standard romantic-comedy structure, as Dave and Aaron's close friendship is strained to the breaking point by the arrival of another man. Virtually all of the dialogue is infused with gay innuendo, double entendres and full-on sex jokes. Some of this is genuinely hilarious, such as the first time Dave and Kim discover their mutual love of Katy Perry's Firework. Then that joke is brought back four or five times, so by the end it's not even mildly amusing. Pretty much every gag in the film is beaten to death, even the ones that weren't funny to begin with. Thankfully, the actors' energy never flags.

The Sundance Film Festival is currently in full swing, having begun on 22nd January, and wrapping up on 1st February. This year, something particularly special is in the air at Salt Lake City, as the festival is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. That's right, the Sundance Film Festival has been running for 30 years! Starting out back in 1985, Sundance screened 86 films with the help of 13 staff members. Last year, the festival showcased 186 films of 12,218 that were submitted. That sort of growth has helped Sundance become one of the biggest independent film festivals in, not only North America, by the world.

This year, 54 first-time filmmakers are having their films premiered at the festival, but there are plenty of well-known faces there, as well, as 200 films are being shown this year for the monumental anniversary. For the 12th year running, The Village at the Lift has been set up in Park City with a café, restaurant, nightclub and photo studio. And this photo studio has seen a host of celebrities for the festival flocking in to pose for pictures in promotion for their various films, taken by Larry Busacca.

Franco And Hill Have A True Story To Tell


Jonah Hill James Franco

James Franco has a True Story to tell and he wants to tell it to Jonah Hill. That's the premise of Franco's latest film, based on, ironically, a true story, as he plays one of the FBI's most wanted men, Christian Longo, convicted of murdering his wife and three children.

True Story
Jonah Hill plays a journalist desperate to get a story out of James Franco's convicted killer

Hill plays disgraced journalist Michael Finkel, who was fired from the New York Times and whose name has been used by Longo to escape police custody.

In 2001, Michael Finkel (Jonah Hill) was fired from his job at the New York Times for creating fictitious characters and using them in an article he published. Not long afterwards, he discovered that Christian Longo (James Franco) had used his name as an alias while on the run after murdering his wife and three children. Finkel confronted Longo in jail, whereupon Longo began to explain what happened and who was really to blame for the murder. As Finkel began to go deeper and deeper into the case, he realised that while this posed a chance to be his comeback, it could also ruin his reputation and career. He desperately hope that he was preparing to publish the true story.

Netflix Confirms 'The Interview' Will Be Available At The Weekend


Sony Seth Rogen James Franco

It’s been quite a turnaround for The Interview in the last month. A little over four weeks ago, the Sony picture had been seemingly consigned to the dustbin following the studio’s cancellation of its release in the face of threats from cyberhackers.

But following its resounding success in its limited digital release, the rumoured Netflix deal has come to pass. Late on Tuesday, the online streaming service announced that the comedy would be available to its US and Canadian subscribers.

The revival of The Interview, which so recently seemed to be doomed to the dustbin of movie history, continues unabated. Following the remarkable box office figures returned upon its limited release across the States, streaming service Netflix has tentatively expressed an interest in making the film available to its subscribers.

On Wednesday, Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a press conference “People want to see the movie and we want to be able to deliver the movie.” However, he would not elaborate on the details of any efforts to secure the film. Sony Pictures had no comment on the possibility of such a deal either.

Sony Leak: Sony Terrified Of "Desperately Unfunny" Movie 'The Interview'


Seth Rogen James Franco

There was absolutely an air of uncertainty about Amy Pascal's leaked emails to Seth Rogen. The comedy actor was unwilling to make edits to his controversial movie The Interview but, on the face of it, Pascal seemed a little disinterested anyway. 

The InterviewSeth Rogen [L] and James Franco [R] star in The Interview, though the executives have their doubts

The executives ended up getting their way and altering the gory final scene in the movie, during which Kim Jong Un's head explodes and is set aflame. However, in a new set of leaked emails, it appears the head honchos hate the entire movie anyway, calling it too offensive, "desperately unfunny" and likely to fail given the starring berth of James Franco.

'The Interview': Why It Could Only Ever Have Been James Franco And Seth Rogen


James Franco Seth Rogen Evan Goldberg Lizzy Caplan

'The Interview' has already become arguably the most controversial comedy of the moment, with its less than sensitive approach to the crisis in North Korea. Nonetheless, it's another tremendously funny venture from a comedy duo we just can't get enough of.

Franco and Rogen are the comedy duo of the moment

James Franco and Seth Rogen appear to be simply inseparable at the moment; having been best buddies since meeting on the set of late nineties show 'Freaks and Geeks', the pair have collaborated  on numerous projects such as 2008's Golden Globe nominated 'Pineapple Express', Evan Goldberg's memorable 'This Is the End' (in which they play themselves) and Franco's own film adaptation of William Faulkner's 'The Sound and the Fury' (yeah, we couldn't imagine them doing 'serious' either).

David Skylark (James Franco) is a worldwide celebrity. His talk show is watched everyone, including the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. Skylark's producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogan), is beginning to doubt the direction of the show and Skylark's sell-out nature. But everything changes when they organise an interview with Kim Jong-un. Suddenly, they are approached by the CIA, offering them a mission to assassinate the world leader. From there, they engage in a ridiculous secret mission, trying to arrange the interview with Skylark being alone in a room with Jong-un and allowing for the assassination.

Third Person Review


Good

There are moments when this three-strand drama almost ascends to the emotional resonance of writer-director Paul Haggis' Oscar-winning 2004 movie Crash. Perhaps even more ambitious, this film is exploring issues of creativity, attraction and grief, but Haggis puts so much effort into the literary trickery that he fails to create characters the audience can connect with. So the drama ends up being interesting but never moving.

The central plot-thread is in Paris, where blocked writer Michael (Liam Neeson) is holed up in a hotel after leaving his wife (Kim Basinger) and arranging to meet his whip-smart mistress Anna (Olivia Wilde). But their witty romance seems to get entangled with his struggle to write a new novel. Meanwhile in Rome, dodgy American businessman Scott (Adrien Brody) meets Monika (Moran Atias), a sexy Roma woman trying to rescue her kidnapped daughter from local gangsters. With his own haunting back-story involving a lost child, Scott offers to help. And in New York, fallen soap-star Julia (Mila Kunis) has hired a lawyer (Maria Bello) in an effort to get custody of her son from her wealthy-painter ex (James Franco). But her life has gone so far off the rails that it's unlikely any judge will see things her way.

There's a clear sense that these storylines are swirling around in Michael's head as he tries to write. Each character has parent-child issues, including the event that sent Michael's career into a downward spiral. But Haggis never quite defines all of this, leaving ideas and themes dangling everywhere without connecting them to authentic people or experiences. So it's very difficult to get involved in any of the story strands, even though the actors deliver open, raw performances. Kunis has the film's strongest role, a complex journey into the aching soul of a mother, and she plays it beautifully. And Bello finds some moments of consuming emotion in her smaller part. Everything else feels rather cliched, from Neeson and Wilde's cute-prickly romantic games to Brody's journey to the dark side of Italy.

Gia Coppola's Palo Alto Is A Next-Generation Movie


Gia Coppola James Franco Emma Roberts Jack Kilmer

One of the more striking things about the new multi-strand teen drama Palo Alto is how it features a series of second and third-generation artists and rising stars. It's certainly a film that looks forwards, crafting a very different style of teen drama than anything we've seen before.

James Franco & Emma Roberts in Palo AltoJames Franco & Emma Roberts in Palo Alto

Intriguingly, the film most closely resembles writer-director Gia Coppola's Aunt Sofia's debut film The Virgin Suicides (1999), another evocative teen movie that centred on emotions rather than overt plot points. Gia is also of course the granddaughter of master filmmaker Francis (of The Godfather and Apocalyse Now fame). Her famous cousins include Nicolas Cage and Jason Schwartzman, whose mother Talia Shire (best known as Adrian in Rocky) also appears in Palo Alto.

Palo Alto Review


Excellent

James Franco's collection of autobiographical short stories is adapted into a remarkably evocative film by Gia Coppola, granddaughter of Francis. And the film's next-generation credentials don't end there. It stars Emma Roberts (daughter of Eric) and Jack Kilmer (son of Val), superb young actors who bring their characters to vivid life even as multiple story strands weave around them. And what makes the film important is its willingness to present teens authentically, often in ways parents probably wish they didn't know about.

It's set in suburban Northern California, where high school teen April (Roberts) worries that she's the last virgin in her class. She's secretly in love with Teddy (Kilmer), and he likes her too, but everyone thinks he's having a fling with the class slut (Zoe Levin). So while babysitting one night for her soccer coach (Franco), she is both startled and thrilled when he makes a move on her. Meanwhile, Teddy's best pal Fred (Nat Wolff) is causing chaos everywhere he goes, as the school's teens go from party to party indulging in alcohol and drugs, testing the boundaries of authority. And their parents seem fairly oblivious to all of this.

Coppola shoots and edits the film in a way that's deeply personal, focussing on the inner lives of the characters rather than the gyrations of the various plot strands. This gives the film a surprisingly cohesive tone, linking everything together into a single tale of young people trying to work out a path to adulthood in a society full of mixed messages. And things rarely go as expected. For example, Teddy is sure he'll go to prison when he crashes his car while driving stoned, but he is given a second chance. And he discovers that doing community service is actually rather enjoyable.

Continue reading: Palo Alto Review

Palo Alto Trailer


April (Emma Roberts) is a shy young girl attending high school in Palo Alto, California. While she has an unrequited crush on Teddy (Jack Kilmer), a flirtatious relationship with her soccer coach, Mr. B (James Franco) is steadily developing into something more physical and altogether more dangerous. At the same time, in the same town, a girl named Emily (Zoe Levin) is the polar opposite of April. Emily indulges in sexual interactions with Teddy and his friend Fred (Nat Wolff) who are themselves engaging in acts of juvenile destruction. But as the kids are forced together as their paths collide, questions arise about the nature of love, lust, boredom, and recklessness in the modern youth culture.

Lindsay Lohan Comments On James Franco Claiming Her Sex-List Is Wrong


James Franco

Lindsay Lohan was left feeling embarrassed when a list of all the famous people she had slept with, which included 36 high-profile stars, was leaked to the public back in March. But to make things worse, someone on that list claims the 28 year-old actress is a liar.

James Franco And Seth Rogen's New Comedy 'The Interview' Pushed Back To December


James Franco Seth Rogen

Originally scheduled to release in October, The Interview is co-directed by Evan Goldberg (who also directed This is the End) and Seth Rogen, and is based around a celebrity talk show host (Franco) and his producer (Rogen) who are tasked with assasinating North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. The film has upset North Korea, who unsurprisingly aren't seeing the funny side, but as it turns out, audiences won't be seeing it either- at least, not for another two months.

Seth Rogen Vs. North Korea: Seth Rogen should be feeling a little nervous right now. The actor and funnyman, who is preparing for the fall release of new movie The Interview, has been threatened after North Korea issued an official complaint to the UN. The shady country raised its hackles over the plot of Rogen's new movie, which depicts a plot to kill dictator Kim Jong-Un. This is unbelievable. If you want to thumb your nose at the Supreme Leader, go giggle at the poster - it's hilarious.
