Review: Claire Foy trades Elizabeth for Lisbeth
No, "The Girl in the Spider's Web" isn't a Spider-man spinoff about a young woman ensnarled by Peter Parker. But you'd be forgiven for thinking the latest, revamped iteration of Stieg Larsson's thrillers has some superhero DNA.
Phoenix suggested Mara for ‘Don’t Worry...’
Foy found Lisbeth Salander liberating
Joaquin Phoenix was "concerned" his dog wouldn't get along with his girlfriend Rooney Mara's pooch.
The 43-year-old actor's beloved pet is always "amazing" with other people but he was worried about introducing her to his partner's own canine companion.
Thankfully, after some time, the two mutts eventually became "best friends" and now the couple love curling up with their pets together.
He said: "I have a dog, and my girlfriend has a dog.
Rooney Mara’s spiritual journey
Lakeith Stanfield has joined the cast of 'The Girl in the Spider's Web'.
The 26-year-old actor - who has just starred in 'Get Out' and 'Death Note' - has joined actress Claire Foy, who is set to portray skilled computer hacker Lisbeth Salander in the new movie alongside Sverrir Gudnason, Deadline reports.

PARIS (AP) — Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren were the toast of Paris as the two septuagenarian actresses modelled for L'Oreal. The cosmetics giant transformed the Champs-Elysees avenue into a dazzling open-air fashion runway for a one-off event on Sunday.

Claire Foy confirmed to star in ‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’
Claire Foy is set to star in 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' sequel.
The 33-year-old actress has been confirmed to portray the skilled computer hacker Lisbeth Salander in 'The Girl in the Spider's Web', which was previously played by Rooney Mara, and the movie will be directed by Fede Alvarex, Variety Online has reported.
The 'The Crown' star had been tipped to take on the role back in May this year, and four months later the casting has finally been confirmed.
Rooney Mara never wanted to be a "child actor".
The 32-year-old actress made her professional acting debut in 2006 when she appeared in 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit', and while the star has revealed her sister Kate Mara knew she wanted to be in front of the camera at a young age, Rooney was keen to continue her education before she embarked on her career in the entertainment industry.
Rooney Mara is happy to "suffer for her art".
The 'Una' actress has admitted she would happily take on an interesting role, even if she knew it would be hard to make, because there is a lot to learn about having an "awful" movie-making experience.
Speaking to Empire magazine, she said: "There's something to be said about having an awful experience. You learn so much about yourself when you have a challenging experience.
This week in arthouse cinema: Nuns gone wild, ‘Reservoir Dogs’ and Deadheads unite
An unapologetically raunchy comedy about nuns, Quentin Tarantino's first film and a never-before-seen Grateful Dead concert are highlights of this week's specialty film scene.
NEW AT CIRCLE CINEMA
"A Ghost Story": Casey Affleck follows up his Oscar win for "Manchester By the Sea" with an unusual tale of a man who dies and returns as a ghost to haunt/comfort his wife (Rooney Mara), only to see her life, and his place in the world, change in his absence.
Do you like pie? Do you like watching people eat pie? Would you pay to watch Rooney Mara scarf down half of a pie before then relieving herself of said pie?
When watching as a film's star eats and then vomits up pie is the most memorable moment of a movie, something has gone wrong.
"A Ghost Story" is meant to be a lyrical ode to love and loss and our fragile existence and connection to one another.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Casey Affleck plays the ghost in the new David Lowery film, "A Ghost Story." For most of the movie, expanding wide Friday, he's silent and cloaked in a white sheet with eye holes cut out as he returns to his home to look in on his still-living partner played by Rooney Mara. It's a weird, wild, sometimes funny and breathtakingly gorgeous film that will leave you thinking about the big ideas of love, life, eternity.
Rooney Mara feels "grossed out" by pie.
The 32-year-old actress was forced to eat the sweet pastry treat whilst filming for David Lowery's 'A Ghost Story' in 2016, and has said the on-set snack was her first ever taste of pie, as well as her last.
STAMFORD—A showing of the 2016 biographical film, “Lion,” on July 8 will kick off a string of screenings in the third floor auditorium of the Ferguson Library’s downtown branch at Bedford and Broad streets through July.
The film which stars Rooney Mara, Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman and Sunny Pawar tells the story of an Indian man adopted as a child by an Australian couple who searches for his birth family. The film which is rated PG-13 runs 118 minutes. The July 8 showing is at 2 p.m.
Review: ‘A Ghost Story’ casts a bizarre spell
A fatal, off-screen car crash interrupts the picturesque, suburban lives of a young married couple in David Lowery's "A Ghost Story," marooning the deceased husband musician (Casey Affleck) in a kind of purgatory as a watchful, mostly benign ghost.
Claire Foy is reportedly set to star in 'The Girl in the Spider's Web'.
The 33-year-old actress - who is known for portraying Queen Elizabeth II in the popular drama series 'The Crown' - is believed to be in talks to appear in the next instalment of the 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' franchise, according to Variety.
However, the blonde-haired beauty has yet to receive an offer to play the role of Lisbeth Salander, although it is rumoured she will be asked to join the production in the near future.
Faye (Rooney Mara) is out to make it big in music, which explains her presence in Austin, Texas. The city seems to be an ongoing festival of sound, bursting with music-industry bigshots — including Cook (Michael Fassbender), with whom Faye becomes involved. He could be good for her career.
NEW YORK (AP) — Even amid the chaotic melee on the Dolby Theatre stage during the infamous best-picture Oscar flub, Ryan Gosling was typically unflappable. While most reacted with shock and confusion, there was the "La La Land" star — cool and bemused — chuckling on the side of the stage.
"What can you say?" Gosling said in an interview by phone from Los Angeles. "I was very happy for 'Moonlight' at the same time. It's such a wonderful film. It's great to see such great work acknowledged."
Review: Malick gets some life back in ‘Song to Song’
As filmmakers obsessed with his early work continue to ape his style, Terrence Malick has ventured beyond, reaching into territory that is stubbornly spiritual and anti-narrative. He eschews story conventions. He turns movie stars like Ben Affleck and Christian Bale into props, using them not for their acting but their broad shoulders that fill up the screen as ethereal women twirl around them. He has become his own genre and with experimental reveries like "To the Wonder" and "Knight of Cups," he has alienated some of his most ardent fans.
‘Dragon Tattoo’ follow-up coming in 2018 with new cast

It'll be based on author David Lagercrantz's "The Girl in the Spider's Web," the fourth book in the series created by Stieg Larsson. The film has been set for an October 2018 release.
Terrence Malick’s ‘Song to Song’ to open SXSW Film Festival
NEW YORK (AP) — Terrence Malick, whose films have regularly made gala premieres at the top European film festivals, will debut his latest in his Texas hometown of Austin.

Pirelli launches covered-up 2017 calendar with top actresses
PARIS (AP) — Pirelli on Tuesday unveiled the 2017 edition of its famed calendar, which sees photographer Peter Lindbergh mature beyond snaps of semi-nude models and set his lens on Hollywood.
The calendar, entitled "Emotional" and launched in Paris, stars 14 Oscar-winning actresses featured in black-and-white close up, in clothed poses with invisible make-up.

Pirelli’s starry calendar focused on acting talent, not skin
