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
Rooney Mara’s spiritual journey
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.
Other sought-after Hollywood actresses flew in to the French capital to see the collection marking a new chapter of a storied fashion house.
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.
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.
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."
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.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lisbeth Salander is coming back to the big screen in 2018, but she won't be played by Rooney Mara or Noomi Rapace.
Columbia Pictures announced Monday a follow-up to "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" will begin production in September with a new cast, and Fede Alvarez will be the director.
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.
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.
Malick's long-awaited "Song to Song," recently retitled from "Weightless," will open the 24th South by Southwest Film Festival on March 10, the festival announced Thursday. The film, starring Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman, is a modern love story set against the Austin music scene.
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.
The photos, while beautiful, show wrinkles, lines and imperfections.
LONDON (AP) — Pirelli has unveiled a star-studded lineup for its 2017 calendar that looks more like the ultimate Oscar red carpet than the stuff of salacious pinups.
Among the subjects announced Sunday are actresses Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman, Kate Winslet, Julianne Moore, Robin Wright, Rooney Mara, Lupita Nyong'o, Penelope Cruz, Jessica Chastain, Lea Seydoux, Zhang Ziyi and Charlotte Rampling. The youngest model, Alicia Vikander, is 27; the eldest, Helen Mirren, is 71.
