    Anton Corbijn To Direct Coldplay Concert Webcast

    Longtime rock band photographer and music video director Anton Corbijn waited until relatively late in his career to try his hand at feature filmmaking. His first effort was the austere Ian Curtis biopic "Control," which he followed up last year with the masterful assassin tale "The American." However, it seems like big screen movies aren't quite a comfortable fit for the helmer. Last fall he admitted he may only have one more film left in him, and that may be an adaptation of John le Carré‘s political thriller "A Most Wanted Man," which he signed for back in June. Not much has been heard on that front since, but Corbijn is still plenty busy. Before he gets to that film, Arts Beat report he'll team with Coldplay and helm their upcoming concert webcast for the American Express Unstaged series.

    Trailer Watch: Michelle Williams Wows in My Week with Marilyn Trailer

    If anybody could do it, it's Michelle Williams. Check out the first trailer for My Week with Marilyn, featuring what looks to be a knockout performance by Williams as icon Marilyn Monroe. I'll seeing the film at its gala premiere at the New York Film Festival on Sunday, October 9. Williams is an Oscar perennial, so she should never be counted out of the Best Actress Oscar race.

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead Doubts She'll Be Back For 'Die Hard 5'

    Says She'll Be Playing Mary Todd From The Ages Of 19-46 In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'After a series of smaller parts in “Live Free or Die Hard” and “Death Proof,” Mary Elizabeth Winstead set geek hearts aflutter as the quirky, purple-haired vixen Ramona Flowers in “Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World.” Now Winstead is starting to step up to where she belongs: into leading lady roles. While her latest part is in the prequel, “The Thing,” that's just the first of the big projects on the horizon for the actress, ranging from a big-budget vampire flick to an indie dramedy.

    Patricia Clarkson Will Head To Eco-Terrorist Thriller 'The East'

    Patricia Clarkson is simply one of the best (and one of our favorite) actresses out there. And while the Oscar nominee can do dramatic work with ease, more recently she has been showing that she's just as adept at comedy, delivering memorable turns in "Easy A," "Friends With Benefits," and as Tammy One in a fantastic appearance on "Parks & Recreation" (sidenote: last week's episode was one of the best in the show's history). But for her next role, Clarkson is returning to drama and putting herself in the hands of a rising director.

    14 Minutes and 50 Seconds With Michael Fassbender

    A few days back I had the ridiculous pleasure of interviewing Mr. Michael Fassbender when he was in New York promoting both "Shame" and "A Dangerous Method" at the New York Film Festival. Clever, insightful and seemingly quite humble, I'm happy to report that Fassbender the person seems as perfect as Fassbender the actor. The full interview is up over at indieWIRE, but I've posted the audio below. It was actually more like 18 minutes but my recorder tragically died before the last two questions (and before all the lovemaking, of course):
