'Winter Sleep' wins the Palme d'Or at Cannes

The top award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival has gone to Winter Sleep, an epic-length family drama directed by Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan.

A jury including Gael Garcia Bernal, Sofia Coppola, Willem Dafoe, and Nicolas Winding Refn selected the winners from the 18 films in competition. Prizes were handed out during Saturday night’s closing ceremony.

Ceylan dedicated the award to “the young people in Turkey and those who lost their lives in the last year,” referring to a coal mine accident that killed 301 workers.

Italian director Alice Rohrwacher took home the runner-up Grand Prix prize for the coming of age story The Wonders. READ FULL STORY

'Mockingjay Part 1': First look at Julianne Moore as President Coin -- VIDEO

mockingjay-julianne-moore-01.jpg

Today Lionsgate unveiled the first images of Julianne Moore as District 13’s President Coin for the upcoming Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. For fans of the series, she looks just as you’d want her to as president of the resistance: severe gray-streaked hair, a solemn expression, yet eyes that reveal a well of emotions and experiences.

She is a character that is being largely invented by the filmmakers. Coin is a key figure in Mockingjay, but one that is predominantly seen through the distrustful eyes of protagonist Katniss Everdeen. Moore talks about the evolution of her character in a video that appears with the first images.

Moore and director Francis Lawrence spent a lot of time discussing who this woman is and what kind of leader she has become. In particular, Moore references a scene in the story when District 13 is bombed by the Capitol and Coin declines to retaliate. READ FULL STORY

Critical Mass: Does Liam Neeson's 'Non-Stop' crash or soar?

January and February are traditionally regarded as dumping grounds for Hollywood’s lesser movies — the time when studios release the films not good enough for Oscar season and not promising enough for the summer box office. But with a surprising string of winter action hits, beginning with 2009’s Taken, that window might also be termed Neeson Season. “Neeson’s imposing 6’4” frame, haunted eyes, and knack for snapping limbs like celery stalks have elevated throwaways such as Unknown, The Grey, and Taken 2 into something more than the sum of their parts,” writes EW’s Chris Nashawaty. “They may not all be memorable films, but they’d be utterly forgettable without the high-gloss patina of a class that he gives them.” Twenty years after playing Oskar Schindler, the 61-year-old Irish actor is the star of his own B-movie sub-genre, and in Non-Stop, he gets to take the gimmick to new heights.

Neeson plays Bill Marks, a sad air marshal whose transatlantic flight from New York to London is interrupted by a text message threatening to kill a passenger every 20 minutes unless $150 million is wired to an offshore account. Everyone is a suspect, including Marks. Might it be the pretty businesswoman with the window seat, played by Julianne Moore? The macho NYPD cop played by House of Cards‘ Corey Stoll? The other air-marshal on board, played by Anson Mount? Or is it one of the other dozen or so possible suspects? Suspense!

Reuniting Neeson with his Unknown director Jaume Collet-Serra, the film also stars Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery as a skeptical flight attendant, with 12 Years a Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o also making a before-she-was-famous appearance.

Click below to see what some of the nation’s leading film critics are saying about Non-Stop before buckling in for Neeson’s latest.

Box office report: 'Gravity' scores third weekend win with $31 million; 'Carrie' and 'Escape Plan' both underwhelm

Gravity.jpg

There’s no force strong enough to pull Warner Bros.’ $100 million smash Gravity back down to Earth. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, easily maintained its perch atop the box office in its third weekend, dropping just 28 percent to $31 million — good for a $170.6 million total after just 17 days.

Gravity is already the tenth highest-grossing film of 2013 in the U.S. (it surpassed Bullock’s other vehicle, The Heat, this weekend), and appears to be headed for a finish of at least $250 million, which would put it ahead of director Alfonso Cuaron’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which grossed $249.5 million in 2004. Worldwide, Gravity has already earned $284.8 million.

Sony’s $55 million Tom Hanks drama Captain Phillips spent a second week in second place, dipping 33 percent to $17.3 million for a $53.3 million total after ten days. The well-reviewed film is playing well ahead of Argo, which had earned $43 million at the same point in its run last year en route to a $136 million finish. Captain Phillips will need some major awards attention in the following months to reach those heights, but thanks to great word-of-mouth, it should reach (or get close to) $100 million domestically.

Chloe Moretz, Julianne Moore, 'Carrie' cast talk horror movies

Everyone has a movie they saw too young. It’s basically a rite of passage — being self-aware enough to know that what you’re watching is beyond your years, but suffering through it anyway. Why do you think we include it in our Pop Culture Personality Tests?

At the Los Angeles premiere of Carrie, director Kimberly Peirce’s re-imagining of Stephen King’s 1974 horror classic (and Brian De Palma’s 1976 film), stars Chloë Moretz, Julianne Moore, and Judy Greer recounted their own tales of the movies that traumatized them in their youth.

Julianne Moore cast as 'Hunger Games' President Coin

Julianne Moore, the four-time Oscar nominee who also played Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change, has been cast as President Alma Coin, the steely leader of the rebellion in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2. In Suzanne Collins’ best-selling books, Coin leads the fight against President Snow and the Capitol that began in the mysterious District 13. Katniss and Coin are reluctant allies at the beginning, due to the need to rally around a symbol — Katniss as heroic Mockingjay — but she begins to suspect that Coin is as untrustworthy as the man she aims to replace.

The third and fourth installments of the Hunger Games are slated for release in November 2014 and November 2015. Catching Fire arrives in theaters on Nov. 22.

'Carrie' trailer: Chloe Moretz causes some mayhem

Carrie-Trailer-2.jpg

Carrie just wants to be normal.

Unfortunately, that’s not in the cards for the telekinetic teenage loner. Not when your abusive mother tells you that all the kids are going to laugh at you, shames you with bible verses (and some non-textual religious zealotry), and occasionally locks you in a closet as punishment.

Chloe Moretz stars as the tragic title character in Kimberly Peirce’s update of  Stephen King’s novel and Brian De Palma’s 1976 film. Julianne Moore gets the lucky task of playing her psychotic mother.

Take a look at the latest blood-soaked trailer for Carrie after the jump.
