George Clooney is set to star in Money Monster, a thriller directed by Jodie Foster.
Money Monster will follow a TV show host (Clooney) who gets taken hostage by a gunman while on-air and is forced to reveal high-stakes secrets to his (steadily increasing) audience in order to survive.
Alice Guy-Blaché isn’t a name that many members of Hollywood recognize, and that is exactly what co-directors Pamela Green and Jarik van Sluijs are trying to change.
Green and van Sluijs, along with executive producer Robert Redford, recently reached their Kickstarter goal of $200,000 to make a documentary, titled Be Natural, about Guy-Blaché, the 23 year old who became the first female director in 1896. READ FULL STORY
In Elysium, director Neill Blomkamp’s political science-fiction follow-up to 2009’s District 9, Matt Damon plays a poor factory drone whose only chance at survival is reaching the utopian satellite that orbits Earth where the world’s richest people now reside in luxury. He only has five days to live after being exposed to radiation during a workplace accident, but Elysium isn’t about to share its medical technology with some Earthling peon. Jodie Foster plays Elysium’s frosty bureaucrat who sics her henchman, played by District 9‘s Sharlto Copley, on the desperate renegades.
In this scene, Copley’s heavily-armed team drops in on Damon and his crew. The mission is clear: extermination, and though the hero survives, one poor revolutionary isn’t fast enough to outrun Elysium’s explosive weapon-technology. It’s a gruesome sight, worth a warning in advance. Watch it below: READ FULL STORY
In the new movie Elysium (opening Aug. 9), written and directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9), Jodie Foster plays a sort of Secretary of Defense for Elysium, an elite satellite hovering above Earth, where the wealthy live apart from the wretched human life on a poor and polluted planet. Her character, Secretary Delacourt, is power-hungry and decidedly anti-immigrant. READ FULL STORY
Matt Damon sci-fi movie Elysium doesn’t hit theaters until August, but until then you can feast your eyes on newly released footage from the film in the latest trailer.
While previous trailers and reports have given us a good idea of what the future of Elysium looks like, this newest preview provides some more details on what Damon’s character, Max, is after and what his life is like before he decides to break into Elysium, the space station for the rich orbiting above a poverty-stricken Earth.
There’s more footage of Max fighting villain Kruger (Sharlto Copley, teaming up again with his District 9 director, Neill Blomkamp), and there’s also Max serving up smart-ass, mocking responses to a robot. Looks like this guy has a little bit of snark.

They grow up so fast.
Former child star Jodie Foster is now claiming a lifetime achievement award.
The two-time Academy Award-winning star of The Silence of the Lambs and The Accused will received the Cecil B. DeMille trophy at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards.
Jodie Foster’s first three films as a director have been, at their core, family tales — 1991’s Little Man Tate followed a mother and her genius son; 1995’s Home for the Holidays chronicled a dysfunctional family’s wild Thanksgiving; and 2011’s The Beaver traced how one man’s twisted psyche affects his entire family.
For her next step behind the camera, it appears Foster is in the mood for something rather different.
The two-time Oscar-winning actress is attached to helm the financial media thriller Money Monster, about Lee Gates, the host of a popular financial TV show who gets taken hostage on live television by a viewer who lost everything thanks to a bad tip from Gates. Naturally, the ratings skyrocket. READ FULL STORY
The Project: Elysium
The Panel: Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, writer-director Neill Blomkamp, producer Simon Kinberg
Footage Screened: Blomkamp prefaced the screening admitting that the only time he’s comfortable with the “salesmanship” aspect of his job is when he is screening footage at Comic-Con for true fans. And even though almost all of the visual effects were very much in the rough stages, he did not skimp on delivering some tasty new footage.
It’s 2154. Earth, explains some title cards, is “diseased, polluted, and vastly over-populated.” It’s a wasteland, packed so tight with people that roofs of major skyscrapers have been converted into slums. So the very wealthy have escaped to Elysium, a vast, circular space station in a far orbit around Earth where there is no poverty, no sickness, and no war. Over this explanation, we see a model-perfect woman in a palatial home getting scanned for, and cured of, cancer, in a matter of seconds. READ FULL STORY
