    And 5 Other Things Learned From The Press Conference At NYFFThe New York Film Festival kicked off its 49th edition on Friday and we'll be spending the next few weeks digging into all that the lineup has to offer. The festival is curiously light on World Premieres this year (the only notable one being awards question mark "My Week With Marilyn"), but the fest makes up for it with some serious auteur power bringing in the latest from Alexander Payne, Lars Von Trier, Roman Polanski, David Cronenberg, Pedro Almodóvar and the city's own Martin Scorsese, who will unveil his new 3 1/2 hour two-part documentary "George Harrison: Living In A Material ...

    Kylie Minogue Has A Role In 'Holly Motors' The New Film By Leos Carax Starring Juliette Binoche

    While Kylie Minogue rose to worldwide fame thanks to the breakout album Fever, whose smash hit "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" finally brought the singer the kind of stateside notice Aussie and Europe audiences had already showered on the singer, what many don't know is that before Minogue strutted her stuff on stages around the world, she got her start as an actress. And for those down under, she is still just as well known for her role on the long running soap opera "Neighbours." Well, it seems Minogue is taking an earnest stride back into her first profession (and yes, she has taken roles here and there over the years, most notably in Baz L...

    After six years of legal battles and editing bay drama, Fox Searchlight finally released Kenneth Lonergan's long awaited "Margaret" this weekend in a handful of theaters. Pushed by a marketing campaign that could generously be called "modest," the film opened to fairly dismal numbers and even though it will rollout to more cities next weekend, the extended imbroglio seems to earned the movie a quiet death. Except, in the court of law, the saga of "Margaret" is not over (more on that in a second) but moreover, for anyone who has seen the film, the news that a longer version of Lonergan's film never made it to screens will be an added frustrati...

    The Mathematics Of Movie-Making, Hollywood Studio-Style! (Things That Make You Go Hmm...)
