See the poster for Anne Hathaway's 'Song One'

In Song One, Anne Hathaway plays Franny, an academic whose research in North Africa is cut short by an emergency phone call from home: her younger brother Henry has been hit by a car and is in a coma.

Henry was an aspiring Brooklyn musician, a career development that had soured the siblings’ relationship. But as she and her mother (Mary Steenburgen) reconnect around his hospital bed, she also gains a greater appreciation for her brother’s commitment to music from the songs he left behind. She visits the clubs he frequented, and when the opportunity presents itself, she approaches her brother’s favorite singer, James Forrester (Johnny Flynn), with a recording of one of her brother’s songs.

Serene and guarded, James is suffering in his own way. A wave of early success has left him paralyzed creatively, but his connection with Franny and her family sparks a healing relationship for both of them.

Flynn was cast perfectly as James, a folksy musician from England who’s a star in Brooklyn’s hip rock-folk scene. Flynn has released four albums, including Country Mile in 2013, and he’d already performed in Brooklyn clubs like Pete’s Candy Store before ever being cast in Song One. “When I read the script, I was like, ‘Oh, in some ways, this is almost my experience of New York,’” says Flynn.

The film is written and directed by Kate Barker-Froyland, who met Hathaway on the set of The Devil Wears Prada, where she was director David Frankel’s assistant. Song One debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and is the first film Hathaway has produced with her husband, Adam Shulman. Film Arcade is releasing the film in theaters and on-demand on Jan. 23.

Critical Mass: 'Interstellar' aims for the stars

Interstellar features Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Michael Caine, but it’s the rare Hollywood film where the director is the unquestioned star. This is a Christopher Nolan joint, from its epic scope, its tangled storytelling gymnastics, and its unrivaled insistence on NSA-level control and pre-release secrecy. The director, who made his name with the backwards-running Memento, and burnished his reputation with the Dark Knight trilogy and the mind-bending Inception, goes all in with Interstellar, an ambitious tribute to the film that most inspired him: Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Interstellar is a space odyssey. Onscreen, its stars—Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Chastain—are enveloped in this world, but how strong is their intergalactic knowledge offscreen? Entertainment Weekly tested the actors’ knowledge with a pop quiz at its cover shoot, asking a number of true/false questions: Do astronauts grow taller in space? Are black holes really black? See if you can keep up with Christopher Nolan’s crew.

Inside 'Interstellar,' Christopher Nolan's emotional space odyssey

They say we don’t go to outer space anymore. But Christopher Nolan is doing a pretty good job of faking it.

It’s October 2013, and we are on the set of code name Flora’s Letter, a.k.a. Interstellar, an epic sci-fi adventure that represents the beginning of the director’s post-Batman life. Working on the same soundstage where he once built a dank batty cave for Christian Bale to skulk in, the British-American helmer has constructed a starship to take Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway across the universe to find salvation for the human race. On screen that ship, the Endurance, will be composed of 12 interlocking pods. Right now it’s only three pods resting at a slant on a mammoth steel gimbal tilted at a 30-degree angle. It resembles a seesaw for giants. READ FULL STORY

Matthew McConaughey hasn't gone far enough in new 'Interstellar' trailer

Though initial Interstellar trailers remained relatively earthbound, the latest clearly shows where Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and company are headed in Christopher Nolan’s latest. And it’s a place with some waves that look like mountains. “Everybody ready to say goodbye to our solar system?” McConaughey says.

New 'Interstellar' TV spot clearly lays out the stakes

Christopher Nolan is famous—some say infamous—for building trailers and teasers that are their own dramatic narratives—red herrings that preserve the surprises of the actual full-length film. But the new TV spot for Interstellar, which opens Nov. 7, clearly establishes the stakes that previous clips have alluded to. “Your daughter’s generation will be the last to survive on earth,” intones Nolan’s good-luck charm Michael Caine to Matthew McConaughey’s good ol’ boy pilot. “Find us a new home.”

“You may have to decide between seeing your children again, and the future of the human race,” says Anne Hathaway’s astronaut, who joins McConaughey’s pilot on a hail-Mary mission to find an inhabitable planet. READ FULL STORY

'Interstellar' trailer: Matthew McConaughey has to save mankind -- VIDEO

interstellar-01.jpg

The first movie that comes to mind after watching the first revealing trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is Contact. No, Matthew McConaughey doesn’t play a hunky spiritual philosopher like he did in that 1997 film, but his hunky rural engineer has a special bond with his daughter not unlike the one shared by Jodie Foster and David Morse. This time, the roles are reversed, though, with the father rocketing through time and space.

In the clip, audiences finally learn the stakes driving Nolan’s latest movie, which he wrote with his brother, Jonathan Nolan. Basically, the Earth is running out of food, as environmental change seemingly has transformed the planet into a giant dust-bowl. “We must confront the reality that nothing in our solar system… can help us,” says Michael Caine’s professor, who aims to recruit McConaughey’s Coop for a vital mission. “We’re not meant to save the world; we’re meant to leave it.”

We’ll have to wait longer to understand why McConaughey is chosen, but he reluctantly volunteers to be one of the interstellar astronauts (along with Anne Hathaway) sent into the void to save mankind. Will he make it back to his daughter, Murphy?

Anne Hathaway to present at Oscars

Joining previously-announced Jennifer Lawrence and Daniel Day-Lewis, Anne Hathaway will present at the Oscars March 2, the Academy announced today.

The previous year’s winners typically return to the Oscars as presenters; Hathaway won the Best Supporting Actress statue last year for her role in Les Misérables. Will she attempt to sing again during this year’s ceremony, perhaps rushing the stage while Idina Menzel performs from Frozen? Unlikely. What is likely is that the actress will be perfectly lovely as a presenter, but the next day everyone will still say Jennifer Lawrence did it better.

Casting Net: Anne Hathaway may play Robert De Niro's boss; Plus, Jack Black, more

• Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) is in talks to star alongside Robert De Niro in The Intern for director Nancy Meyers (It’s Complicated). Hathaway would play a high-powered executive who gets assigned a senior intern (De Niro). Reese Witherspoon was previously attached to the role when Warner Bros. signed on, but dropped out due to reported scheduling conflicts. After a quiet 2013 (release-wise), Hathaway can be seen next in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (Nov. 7). She also just enjoyed the premiere of Song One (release date TBD) at Sundance. [THR]
