    IFC Goes On Cannes Buying Spree

    IFC Films is on a buying tear. They happen to be at Cannes, but they obviously had been talking about acquiring U.S. rights to Ari Posin's "The Face of Love" since its well-received debut (under the title "The Look of Love") at SXSW. The romantic mystery stars Annette Bening as a widow who falls har...

    Trailer Watch: Girl Most Likely - Written by Michelle Morgan and Co-Directed by Shari Springer Berman

    This is Kristen Wiig's first leading role onscreen since Bridesmaids. I hope people are not expecting Bridesmaids 2 because this looks a bit more intense. Formerly titled Imogene, Wiig plays a playwright who has a nervous breakdown and is forced to move back in with her estranged mom (Annette Beni...

    Trailer of the Week: Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening Make for One Dysfunctional Family in 'Girl Most Likely'

    Before the trailer, we thought: With Kristen Wiig's first post-"Bridesmaids" starring role, a supporting cast that includes Annette Bening and Matt Dillon in welcome comedic roles, all signs pointed to a return to form for "American Splendor" directors Shari Spring Berman and Robert Pulcini, followi...

    Watch: Kristen Wiig Is The 'Girl Most Likely' In Trailer For The New Comedy From The Directors Of 'American Splendor'

    Kristen Wiig exploded after the massive success of "Bridesmaids," but unlike Melissa McCarthy, we have yet to see the cinematic rewards be reaped. Her only notable post-'Bridesmaids' turns were a small part in "Friends With Kids" and another little bit in "Friends With Jolly!," but by the end of yea...

    Watch: Trailer For Comedy 'Girl Most Likely' (Formerly 'Imogene'), Starring Kristen Wiig & Annette Bening

    Now that she's gone from "Saturday Night Live," we're entering a new phase of Kristen Wiig's career. The actress already had a monster hit under her belt thanks to "Bridesmaids," but to her credit, she didn't rush into the first paycheck that came along, mixing big-time comedies like this Christmas'...

    Warren Beatty's Howard Hughes Project With Jack Nicholson, Annette Bening & Owen Wilson Still In The Works

    Not seen on the big screen since 2001's "Town & Country," and not having directed a movie since 1998's "Bulworth," any Warren Beatty news is cause for curiosity -- though optimism is something that you'll likely want to keep on hold. Remember last year when it loo...

    Guest Post: Looking at Real Women With Real Life and Body Issues in Yogawoman

    With the presidential debate including talk once again of women getting equal pay, it seems surreal to me that we are still having this discussion. In the 70’s, when I was a teenager reading books like Marilyn French’s The Women’s Room, I was so inspired and imagined how fast it wa...

    New Photos & Poster For 'Ginger & Rosa' Starring Elle Fanning

    There are few young actresses right now who are on quite the same trajectory as Elle Fanning. With directors like Cameron Crowe, J.J. Abrams, Francis Ford Coppola, Sofia Coppola, David Fincher, Tony Scott and Alejandro González Iñárritu already on her impressive CV, we can only imagine an Academy Aw...

    TIFF Review: 'Imogene' Is A Big-Screen Sitcom, But Elevated By Kristen Wiig & Annette Bening

    "Imogene" finds Kristen Wiig in victory lap mode, and that suits her just fine. Perhaps the most likable comedic actress to come down the pike since Diane Keaton threw on a Civil War-era vest and floppy hat, Wiig finds herself, post-"Bridesmaids," in rarified company. She is a beloved, in-demand act...

    Watch: Trailer For Festival Hit 'Ginger & Rosa' With Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks & Annette Bening

    Among some higher profile competition, one of our editor-in-chief's favorite films from his time in Telluride last weekend turned out to be "Ginger & Rosa," a coming-of-age tale from director Sally Potter ("Orlando"). Probably the most accessible film to date from a filmmaker whose last picture was ...
