    Venice '11 Review: 'Shame' A Fascinating Follow-Up To 'Hunger,' With A Tour-De-Force From Fassbender

    As English-language directorial debuts in the last few years go, Steve McQueen's "Hunger" ranks up there as one of the most uncompromising. An award-winning, sometimes controversial British artist, McQueen chose to move into feature film by examining the life of IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands, managing not to flinch from any of the grim details, using takes of up to 20 minutes in length, and showcasing a tour-de-force performance from the now firmly-planted-on-the-A-list Michael Fassbender. It picked up an enormous amount of critical support, including the Camera D'Or at Cannes in 2008, and signified both director and star as major talents to...

    'Shame,' 'The Artist,' 'The Descendants,' 'Albert Nobbs' & More Journey To Telluride This Weekend

    'Tinker Tailor Solider Spy' Remains MIA On North American Festival ShoresWhile Venice has kicked off the fall festival season in grand style, the awards season really starts with Telluride. Reactions from the hippie resort film festival have proven to be a crystal ball at both box office and awards season performance and for many studios, cause to tweak and adjust their fall plans accordingly based on what happens in Colorado. Moreover, with TIFF right around the corner, a strong showing at Telluride can often put a previously under the radar the film into a strong spotlight in Toronto. "Up In The Air," "Juno," "Slumdog Millionaire" and "Brok...

    Carey Mulligan To Perform 'New York, New York' In Steve McQueen's 'Shame'

    Considering the fact that Carey Mulligan has for ages been attached to the long-gestating, going-nowhere adaptation of "My Fair Lady" alongside Colin Firth, we all knew there was at least some spark of musical talent in the actress. It now looks like we won't have to wait too long some to see eviden...

    Andrea Arnold's 'Wuthering Heights' & Steve McQueen's 'Shame' Get U.K. Release Dates

    International release dates can be a curious thing. With international box office making up bigger and bigger percentages of total grosses, many high profile films open abroad before they do in the States, with "Fast Five," "Thor" and "X-Men First Class" numbering among them. But then others, such as "Bridesmaids" and "Super 8," which require a little more work, get a steady roll-out, taking months to make their way around their world. And then there are the prestige pictures. The vagaries of international distribution mean that some pictures will sneak out abroad after festival bows -- "The Tree Of Life" opened in France weeks before the U.S...

    First Look: Michael Fassbender And Carey Mulligan In Steve McQueen's 'Shame'

    It's been a flurry of a morning with the awesome Toronto Film Festival line-up being announced. On top of that comes a ton of first looks at films that have been highly anticipated on our part. First up we have quite a few photos of Steve McQueen's "Shame," starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan. McQueen last directed Fassbender in "Hunger," a movie about the 1981 hunger strike in Ireland. "Hunger" was Fassbender's first shove into the spotlight, and he's now one of the year's "it" guys, knocking it out of the park in "X-Men: First Class" earlier this summer and getting ready for an awards push as Carl Jung in David Cronenberg's "A Da...
