Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o in a movie all because of a meme...

Stories - May 24, 2017

To think it all started out as an internet joke…

Who remembers this picture of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o, front row at Miu Miu’s fashion show in 2014?
Many saw in it the perfect still shot for a movie where the singer would play a boisterous female hero and the actress her genius hacker bestie.

A few weeks ago, the two superstars even exchanged a few tweets where they said they’d be down to star in a flick along those lines.

Well, it turns out Netflix have just announced that a movie based on the meme was in development… with Rihanna and Lupita as the lead characters.

Ava Duvernay, the director of Oscar-nominated I Am Not Your Negro, will be in charge of directing the ladies starting early 2018 and Issa Rae from the critically acclaimed and Golden Globe-nominated TV show Insecure is set to take screenwriting duties.

Talk about girl power!

When Supergirl supports her friend Wonder Woman

Stories - May 25, 2017

The promo run for “Wonder Woman” is in full motion. Everywhere you turn you can see something related to the movie. After the MTV Movie Awards, the fierce hero is on TV again.

In a promo spot for “Supergirl” (another DC Comics project), Melissa Benoist – who plays the lead character – swaps her signature knee-high boots for those of her friend Wonder Woman.

Funnily enough, Lynda Carter who is none other than the original Wonder Woman appears in the video. She plays the role of president Olivia Marsdin in the show. All in the family!

With Supergirl renewed for a third season and Wonder Woman about to reign supreme over the box office, looks like 2017 is the year of the woman for DC Comics

... and the first gender-neutral award goes to Emma Watson

Stories - May 26, 2017

Emma Watson is back at it. After winning the very first gender-neutral award at the MTV Movie Awards she delivered another uplifting and inspiring speech about equality.

The concept of gender-neutral awards is amazing and a true step in the right direction… in theory. Our issue is that women still aren’t represented enough in the film industry, so awards like this one are bound to be given out to more males than females anyway.

Let’s not forget that Kathryn Bigelow is the only woman to ever win Best Director at the Oscars, so maybe we should wait a little bit before we make gender-neutral a “thing”

Jessica Chastain shares her experience as juror

Stories - May 23, 2017

We’ve saved the best for last for our special Cannes week: Jessica Chastain shares all about her role as a juror of the 70th Cannes Film Festival.

The American actress says she takes her duty very seriously and is very happy to be able to actually watch all the films of the selection – instead of walking the carpet to promote her own films.
She also talks about her first time in Cannes and what her criteria to pick the Golden Palm are.

Member of the jury in 2017, we wonder how long it will take for Ms. Chastain to be the president of her own jury. Her dedication and the choices she makes as an actress, should keep her around for many years to come. Well-done Jess!

The first pictures of Cannes 2017's jury

Stories - May 17, 2017

This is it, the first pictures of the 70h Cannes Film Festival jury are out. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the class of 2017 with President of the jury Pedro AlmodòvarJessica Chastain, Will Smith, Fan Bingbing, Paolo Sorrentino, Maren Ade, Agnès Jaoui, Park Chan-wook and Gabriel Yared.

To be honest, it looks like « The Avengers take Cannes » to us. We absolutely adore it, and it got us thinking : if these guys joined forces to work on a movie together, it would be the best thing to be released EVER.

Red hot tango between Monica Bellucci and Alex Lutz

Stories - May 18, 2017

Whether at the most high-profile clubs or on the beach in the middle of the night, the city of Cannes is constantly dancing during the festival. Obviously, Mistress of Ceremony Monica Bellucci and her sidekick Alex Lutz got the memo: they danced a fiery tango, which ended with a big Hollywood kiss.

Their song of choice? “Piensa En Mì” that could be heard on High Heels by Pedro Almodòvar. What a nice tribute to the president of the jury who seemed to enjoy every single bit of the action lead by former juror Bellucci, comedian Lutz and and their accompanying dancers…

Not even 24 hours and already so much has happened Cannes… Who knows what tomorrow may bring?

When Netflix debuts in Cannes...

Stories - May 19, 2017

As you know we’re big fans of Netflix (binge-watching forever), so we’re a bit sad to see that its presence at Cannes hasn’t had the best reception.

During the festival’s press conference, Almodòvar said: “I personally don’t perceive the Palme d’Or [should be] given to a film that is then not seen on the big screen”.
Will Smith, his juror, didn’t necessarily agree: “It has broadened my children’s global cinematic comprehension”.

But it didn’t stop there… At the screening for Bong Joon Ho’s Ojka – the first Netflix movie in the running for the Golden Palm – part of the audience started booing when they saw the Netflix logo appear and to make matters worse, the screening was interrupted after a few minutes due to some technical issues. Still, the film received great reviews!


Will it be Netflix productions’ first and last time under the jury’s consideration. Only time will tell? What we do know is that this debate is far from over

Clint Eastwood is the best professor in town!

Stories - May 22, 2017

When the master talks, everybody listens!

The mighty Clint Eastwood was in Cannes during the weekend to show a restored version of his classic movie Unforgiven. He took the opportunity to give a masterclass where he talked about his long career, he even revealed that a return to acting might be in the cards soon (his last movie as an act was 2012’s Trouble With The Curve): “I did a lot of it for a long time. I’ll visit it again someday” 

According to the former president of the jury, Meryl Streep wasn’t necessarily a fan of the book The Bridges Of Madison County but reading the script made her want to make the movie. He shared with the audience his vision of cinema: “Cinema is completely emotional; it’s not intellectual at all”. If you say so, Clint!

45 minutes of conversation, a 3 minutes long standing-o and 400 people who’ll brag about this until the end of their life. Thank you and well done, Clint!

The very orange atmosphere of the next "Blade Runner" movie

Stories - May 10, 2017

Although many big movies are to be released this year, a specific one already has us losing our minds, especially since we got a little preview of what to expect.

Ladies and gents, Blade Runner 2049 is around the corner… and ironically the dominant color in its trailer and poster is – you guessed it – orange! 🙂

Harrison Ford is back in the sequel for 1982’s Blade Runner. While Ridley Scott was the director of the original film, Denis Villeneuve is taking over directing duties and brought with him Ryan Gosling who stars with Ford as the movie’s main characters.

Granted, it’s only a picture and a 2 minutes clip and there’s still a lot of mystery surrounding the movie, still that was enough to have our blood boiling in anticipation… and the thought of Harrison and Ryan in the same movie too.
Roll on October 2017!

Disney princesses at the Met Gala

Stories - May 11, 2017

The Met Gala is THE event where movie and TV stars, musicians and people of the fashion industry all get together.
Obviously tired of being left behind, Disney’s princesses also showed up to the ball in 2017, at least they did on Gregory Masouras’ Instagram account.

#AnimationInReality Vs #MetGala Merida as @Zendaya in @DolceGabbana Alta Moda. #zendaya

Une publication partagée par Gregory Masouras (@gregorymasouras) le

The artist’s IG is filled with montages of Disney princesses’ heads on top of bodies of the trendiest celebs of the moment.
Ironically, our favorite ones are those of Merida from Brave. Whether on the red carpet (as singer-actress Zendaya) or on the cover of Vogue magazine (with model Mica Arganaraz’ body), she effortlessly steals the show with that fiery hair.

Special shout out to “Snow White” in that wonderful orange dress. WOW!
