    'Tree Of Life' Star Jessica Chastain To Star In Guillermo Del Toro-Produced Horror 'Mama'

    It feels like Jessica Chastain is a name that we've been hearing about for years now, without much evidence to go by in terms of released movies.

(On the same token, its complete lack of an identifiable narrative/dramatic structure and emotional aloofness might drive you batty.) Looking into “The Tree of Life” (and beyond), though, you’ll find even more tantalizing q...

    Cannes is one of the biggest markets, if not the biggest, for acquisitions in the film calendar, with hundreds of deals made, ranging from pre-sales for star-laden properties to distribution rights to terrible B-movies.
