Ryan Gosling's 'How to Catch a Monster' and other pre-Cannes deals -- UPDATED

The Cannes Film Festival doesn’t begin in earnest until tomorrow, when The Great Gatsby opens the prestigious 12-day cinematic showcase and the shiniest of celebrities descend on the luxurious Mediterranean resort, but the Cannes film market is already revving on all cylinders. Warner Bros. is reportedly on the verge of acquiring the U.S. rights to How to Catch a Monster, Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut that he’ll also star in, along with Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan, and Christina Hendricks. The fantasy film is still in production, but as Deadline originally reported, the weight of Warner Bros. will likely boost interest in the film’s international rights when buyers convene at Cannes next week.

'Gravity' trailer: George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are stranded in space!

It’s been a long wait for anyone following the development of Alfonso Cuarón’s space thriller Gravity. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts on a Space Shuttle mission, was originally set to be released in November 2012, but despite years of buzz, it wasn’t until this week that some footage from the movie finally hit the web. Now, we have the film’s first trailer.

In the spot,  Bullock and Clooney bask in the striking view of Earth, while some soft piano and violin set the scene for the beautiful and serene surroundings — until everything changes. The space shuttle is destroyed while the two astronauts are on a spacewalk, and they’re left stranded in 372 miles above Earth.

Justin Timberlake gets backing for Neil Bogart biopic, 'Spinning Gold'

The long-in-development biopic Spinning Gold, about music producer Neil Bogart, has finally found a financier. Foresight Unlimited has come aboard the project to produce, finance, and handle worldwide sales.

Justin Timberlake is set to produce and also star as Bogart, a 1970s music industry icon who promoted the careers of such artists as KISS, Donna Summer, and the Village People before he died at age 39. His son, Timothy Scott Bogart, wrote the script for the biopic. Dreamgirls producer Laurence Mark, who earned an Oscar nomination for Jerry Maguire, will also produce. READ FULL STORY

'Man of Steel': Listen to clips from the score by Hans Zimmer

The official soundtrack for Man of Steel is now available for pre-sale on Amazon, and with the pre-sale comes clips of the score by epic movie music maestro Hans Zimmer.

Fans got an early listen to the score in the third preview for the movie, a rather nostalgic, adventure-ready trailer that brought to mind so many beloved moments in Superman’s story more so than the previous previews that highlighted the more gritty, Dark Knight-esque feel that Man of Steel seems to be introducing to the franchise. Helping evoke that tone was steadily building, triumphant music by Zimmer — that trailer music is the third track on the album. But judging from the brief clips now available of each track, the full score has both grand, epic and solemn, meditative tracks that should help create the action-packed yet also character-driven and contemplative movie Man of Steel is aiming to be.

Tribeca: The National documentary set to open film festival -- Watch the trailer

When the members of indie rock band The National set out on tour, the last thing they expected was for the brother of frontman Matt Berninger to tag along with his camera. But that’s exactly what Tom Berninger did for his directorial debut, Mistaken for Strangers, a “self-mockumentary” that follows the members of band around in every aspect of their lives on tour. From the stage to the shower, Tom spares no expense (or privacy) in his film. He also asks the hard-hitting questions: “How famous do you think you are?” “How fast can you play [the guitar]?” “What kind of drugs and how many drugs have you done?”

The result is a film just as much about Tom’s journey to complete a project as it is about the band. As Tom puts it in the film’s trailer, “I just want to make something good for him [his brother] as well as myself.”

Check out the trailer for Mistaken for Strangers below: READ FULL STORY

'The Great Gatsby' trailer: Beyonce covers Amy Winehouse. Plus: Lana Del Rey and Florence + The Machine

The new trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s glitter-bomb adaptation of The Great Gatsby features three songs from the Jay-Z-produced Gatsby soundtrack, and it’s an apppropriately eclectic and wackadoo anachronistic mix. There’s Beyoncé and André 3000 covering Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black.” There’s Lana Del Rey — certainly a minor character in her own tragicomic F. Scott Fitzgerald short story — with the heretofore unreleased track “Young & Beautiful,” which used to be called “Will You Still Love Me.”

Last up is Florence + The Machine, who have a song called “Over The Love” that includes the lyrics “I can see the green light/I can see it in your eye.” Somewhere, a high schooler is already adding that song to the end of their sophomore-English PowerPoint Presentation, “The Man With The Yellow Car: Color Themes in The Great Gatsby.” The point is, Fitzgerald would be proud/too drunk to care.

'You're Next' trailer: Check out the first clip for the home invasion horror-comedy...if you dare! -- VIDEO

I recently saw a screening of the excellent home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next and, for reasons which will become abundantly clear when the film hits cinemas on August 23, have had the Dwight Twilley Band’s why-was-this-never-a-hit? soft-rock classic “Looking For the Magic” on repeat in my head ever since. The movie’s first trailer features no Twilley — making highly ironic use of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” instead — and gives little indication as to the darkly hilarious nature of director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett’s film. But the clip does accurately tease the large amount of nerve-rending mayhem to be found in the movie, whose cast includes Sharni Vinson, AJ Bowen, Re-Animator star Barbara Crampton, and indie director Joe Swanberg, amongst  others.

You can check out the trailer below. Take a look and tell us what you think.

'Admission' star Nat Wolff applied early-decision for stardom

admission-nat-wolff

Paul Rudd and Tina Fey supply most of the romantic-comedy in Admission, director Paul Weitz’s new movie about a by-the-book Princeton University admissions officer (Fey) who is thrown for a loop when a charming old classmate (Rudd) suggests one of his most talented college-bound students just might be the child she put up for adoption years ago. But younger audiences who grew up watching The Naked Brothers Band will be delighted to recognize that Rudd’s academic prodigy, Jeremiah, is none other than a taller, less shaggy Nat Wolff, the older sibling from Nickelodeon’s hit musical-comedy TV series that ran from 2007 to 2009. Now 18 — and bound for college himself — Wolff is jumping back into movies in a big way. Admission is just one of five films he’ll star in this year, highlighted by upcoming roles opposite Selena Gomez, Lily Collins, James Franco, and Girls‘ Zosia Mamet.

What about the Naked Brothers, you ask? Nat and Alex, now 15, are still making music together (though they are no longer Naked and just go by Nat & Alex Wolff). “Since December, I’ve just been playing shows with Alex,” says the native New Yorker. “We’re a duo, and we’re working on the next record. It’s difficult to balance [music and movies], but we’re always writing songs.”

SXSW: Green Day presents world premiere of doc 'Broadway Idiot'

Perhaps the biggest standing ovation given by Paramount Theater audiences all week at SXSW was when Green Day took the stage Friday alongside director Doug Hamilton to present the world premiere of the documentary Broadway Idiot. Bassist Mike Dirnt did the talking for the group, thanking the audience for coming to the show. “Welcome to our nightmare,” he said happily, before handing off the microphone to lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. The crowd held their breath for a half second, waiting to hear him speak, but instead he tossed the mic to a festival director and the band made themselves scarce.
