    Will Madonna's 'W.E.' Get A 10 Minute Trim Before Its December Release Later This Year?

    Well, TIFF is now over and Toronto is getting back to normal and for Madonna, who has journeyed to Italy and Canada with her sophomore directorial effort "W.E.," she's likely glad to have a moment to breathe and get out of the spotlight. To put it kindly, the reception to the film has been chilly. Our man in Venice called the film "a royal disaster" while others hoping to find something positive in the film have noted it's beautiful set and costume design, solid score by Abel Korzeniowski, with some much more optimistic folks saying it could possibly be an Oscar contender in those former categories. The Weinstein Company, who have set the fil...

    Watch: First Footage From Madonna's Venice Flop 'W.E.'

    The fall festival season had its first major league flop as Madonna's sophomore directorial effort "W.E." was roundly crucified and/or dismissed as an opulent folly after its premiere at the Venice Film Festival. Our own Oliver Lyttelton gave the film an F, saying that "despite a couple of solid performances, the film can’t be redeemed," pointing to a litany of gaffes from clumsy editing and shot blocking to the script itself, which offers very little reason to be providing two parallel storylines that seemingly have little to connect them. Naturally, the failure has grown curiosity about the film, and two clips have now landed online that gi...

    Venice '11 Review: Madonna's 'W.E.' Is A Royal Disaster

    Just as news of an actor excitedly announcing that they've got a definitely-not-a-vanity-project album on the way is generally greeted with a reaction somewhere between mockery and outright terror, news of a musician moving into the movies is rarely a good thing. But all in all, pop megastar Madonna...

    Madonna Reportedly Working With William Orbit & Abel Korzeniowski On Classical Score For 'W.E.'

    For her sophomore directorial effort "W.E.," Madonna is certainly surrounding herself with some solid talent. She's got Abbie Cornish, Oscar Isaac, Andrea Riseborough and James D’Arcy to lead the cast in the highly ambitious film, that tells the parallel stories of the love affair between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, which led to the royal’s abdication, and the contemporary story of a woman, Wally Winthrop, with romantic problems of her own, in addition to an obsession with the life of the Duchess of Windsor. And with all that pomp and circumstance going on, a classical score is unsurprisingly being prepped and the Queen Of Pop has ro...
