The 2015 Cannes Film Festival has announced part of their official line-up earlier today. It was announced that Rachel’s upcoming animated movie “The Little Prince” is selected for the festival. It will screen out of competition. The movie is directed by Mark Osborne and the running time is 1h48 according to the official website. Wild Bunch, who handles international sales, is reporting the following plot:
Long synopsis: Rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time. From Mark Osborne, Academy Award® nominated director of Kung Fu Panda, comes the first-ever animated feature film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s iconic masterpiece, The Little Prince. At the heart of it all is The Little Girl, who’s being prepared by her mother for the very grown-up world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator. He introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince. It’s here that The Little Girl’s magical and emotional journey into her own imagination – and into the universe of The Little Prince – begins.

The Japanese distributor Warner Bros released the first official poster for “The Little Prince” earlier this month. It features The Girl (voiced by Mackenzie Foy) and The Aviator (voiced by Jeff Bridges) character. You can find the full version of the poster in our gallery. The movie will be released in November/December 2015 in Japan. Be sure to also visit the official Japanese website: LittlePrince.jp because it features a very beautiful design which gives a good impression of the animation work in the movie.
The official website for France was also recently launched: LePetitPrince-LeFilm.com. The site also features a scholar section where schools in France can participate and win an early screening of the movie. The files at the scholar section give us a closer look at the movie. One of the files gives us an introduction of the (principal) character of the movie and describes The Mother as a loving and dedicated mother who wants to help her daugther achieve excellence at school. The movie will be released on July 29, 2015 in France. No release date has been set for the U.S. but it’s expected to be released sometime this year. Hans Zimmer recorded the score last month at the Air Studios. Variety recently predicted that the movie is a strong contender to premiere during this year’s Cannes Film Festival, but nothing has been confirmed.
The current issue (April 17-24, 2015) of Entertainment Weekly features their annual Summer Movie Preview and “Southpaw” is also featured with a the first official production still. We have added the digital scan in our gallery thanks to our friends Claudia & Luciana.
STARRING Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, Rachel McAdams
DIRECTED BY Antoine Fuqua
NOT YET RATED
RELEASE DATE July 24
Antoine Fuqua set the bar high. A boxer himself, he knew whomever he cast as Billy Hope, the lead pugilist in Southpaw, would need to impress him. Big-time. Billy is the emotional (and very physical) center of this drama about life in the ring—the story of an angry, undefeated light heavyweight champion who has to care for his young daughter when his wife (Rachel McAdams) dies. Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) originally wrote the script for Eminem as an unofficial follow-up to 8 Mile. After the rapper dropped out to focus on music, Fuqua (Training Day) had a hunch that Jake Gyllenhaal could play a dad out of his depth. But could he fight?
Once he got the role, his first stop was the gym. Gyllenhaal trained twice daily for four months and completely transformed himself into the ripped, tatted brawler. Appearance wasn’t his main concern, though. “You can’t play a boxer and just look like a boxer,” says the actor, last seen playing a rail-thin sociopath in Nightcrawler. “You have to believe that you can exist in that world.”
And he did. Fuqua shot the fight sequences in real time, using an HBO Sports crew as Gyllenhaal sparred with pro boxers like Victor Ortiz. “It turns out that he’s a pretty good fighter,” Fuqua says. “He’s got some skills.”
HBO just released the first teaser trailer for “True Detective“. Season 2 of the anticipated series will premiere on Sunday June 21 in the U.S. Rachel stars in the second season as Ani Bezzerides alongside Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, and Taylor Kitsch. We have added the teaser trailer in our video archive. The high definition screencaptures and first production still of are added in our gallery.
A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Highway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions, and billions of dollars.

The movie is now up against Pan, Paper Town, Pixels, Irrational Man, and The Vatican Tapes. Launching Films UK is reporting the movie will be released on July 24, 2015 in the U.K. The first trailer of the movie was released last week, so be sure to check out our previous post in case you missed it. The official trailer description has also been updated with a new detailed plot:
From acclaimed director Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY) and starring Academy Award® nominated Jake Gyllenhaal (NIGHTCRAWLER, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) comes a story of tragedy, loss and the painful road to redemption… Billy “The Great” Hope (Gyllenhaal) is the reigning Junior Middleweight Champion whose unorthodox stance, the so-called “Southpaw,” consists of an ineloquent, though brutal, display of offensive fighting…one fueled by his own feelings of inadequacy and a desperate need for love, money and fame. With a beautiful family, home and financial security, Billy is on top both in and out of the ring until a tragic accident leaves his wife (Rachel McAdams) dead and sends him into a downward spiral. His days now an endless haze of alcohol and prescription drugs, his daughter taken by Child Services and his home repossessed by the bank, Billy’s fate is all but sealed until a washed up former boxer named Tick (Forest Whitaker) agrees to take the bereaved pugilist under his wing so long as he agrees to his strict ethos. Relentless and utterly committed to a fighter that thinks as much as he throws punches, Tick rebuilds Billy into a new man: one that is agile, fearsome and uncompromising in the ring while thoughtful, loving and disciplined outside of it. Now, as he works to regain custody of his daughter and mounts a professional comeback, Billy must face his demons head-on as he learns that, sometimes, your greatest opponent can be yourself.
We would like to remind all the German visitors that Wim Wenders’ “Every Thing Will Be Fine” is released in theaters in Germany starting today. Rachel co-stars alongside James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marie-Josée Croze, and Rob Naylor. The movie premiered earlier this year during the Berlinale Film Festival (Out Of Competition). No U.S. release date has been set but the movie will be released on April 22, 2015 in France. We have added the German and French posters in our gallery and replaced the previously released production stills with better quality. Wim Wenders recently revealed why he casted Rachel in the movie:
On Casting Rachel: “[…] I cast Rachel McAdams because of that incredibly positive energy that she exudes in every role […] I knew that she would be the right one for the role, and that was based on two films, Terrence Malick’s To The Wonder and a science-fiction film that hardly anyone knows here, The Time-Traveller’s Wife. In both films, Rachel radiates an enormously positive energy which is also a wonderful quality for the role of Sara. Such characters are so rare in cinema! With them you get the feeling that everything they do is destined for good. They have this natural self-confidence and simply “a good heart”. Sara is such an optimistic person and, actually, it’s a disgrace when Tomas leaves her and probably he also realises this himself when he unexpectedly meets her again some years later. But the events almost force him to break with this part of his life. You sometimes ask yourself why you gave up the best thing that ever happened to you, but you nevertheless had to see it through at that point in your life. And it’s only because he gives up Sara that Tomas then has the chance for a relationship with Ann and Mina.”
The Weinstein Company released the very first trailer for “Southpaw” via the official twitter account for the movie. The trailer can be found in our video archive and the high definition screencaptures can be found in our gallery. Rachel co-stars alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, Oona Laurence, Naomie Harris, 50 Cent & Rita Ora. The movie will be released on July 31, 2015 in the U.S.
