    What In The Name of Jessica Chastain Is Going On With 'The Tree of Life' And Its U.K. Release Date?

    Probably the biggest controversy of the week (despite the efforts of Disney and Jennifer Garner) has come over "The Tree of Life," the latest film from Terrence Malick that has been whipping up near-religious levels of anticipation in film fans everywhere, ourselves included. The film was all-but-confirmed to be playing Cannes last week, something that's been rumored ever since Fox Searchlight announced they'd be opening it in the U.S. at the end of May. But a spanner was thrown into the works by Empire's story on Monday that Icon, the distribution company originally founded by Mel Gibson, and who have the rights to the film in a number of te...

    At the rate news is building around Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" you would think it starred a masked hero in spandex.

    'The Tree of Life' Gets A Running Time; Alexandre Desplat Talks The Score

    While the release schedule is starting to look a little less grim over the next few months -- most upcoming weekends promise at least one picture that doesn't actively insult our intelligence, which is a start -- the wait for the May release of Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life" still seems interm...

    The Playlist Foolishly, and Prematurely, Tries To Predict The 2012 Best Picture Oscar Nominations

    It would be safe to say that The Playlist is as sick of the just-wrapped-up awards season as anyone. The endless ceremonies, often with the same results, the blind guesses, the half-informed speculation; by the time it reaches March, we're kind of furious with the whole circus.

    Also Reveals That Terrence Malick Consulted With NASA For Footage Of The CosmosWith a little more than four months to go before its release, the details about Terrence Malick’s long-awaited “The Tree of Life” are continuing to trickle out bit by bit. The film centers on a father in the 1950s (Brad Pitt) and his son Jack (Sean Penn), now grown up, in the present day as they deal with the residue of their difficult relationship. We’ve been watching that beautiful trailer more than we’d care to admit and we’re starting to feel those images burned onto our brains. The man responsible for creating those images, Emanuel "Chivo" Lubezki, (ace cinem...

    The Playlist's 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2011 - Part 1

    That’s right, 2010 is already in our rear view and we’re looking far, far ahead into 2011. If 2010 was the year of audiences rewarding original, smart blockbusters (“Inception”) and punishing glossy, but empty big-budget tentpoles (“The Tourist,” “Tron: Legacy”) the new year will find studios hoping once again that comic franchises and sequels can bring in the big bucks. No less than five comic-book movies are on the way with “Thor,” “Captain America,” “Green Lantern,” “Green Hornet” and “X-Men: First Class” all swinging into thea...
