INTRIGUING 'YOUTH' TRAILER WITH MICHAEL CAINE, HARVEY KEITEL, RACHEL WEISZ, JANE FONDA! MARION COTILLARD, VINCENT CASSEL, LEA SEYDOUX JOIN 'IT'S ONLY THE END OF THE WORLD'! HAILEE STEINFELD LEADS 'BREAK MY HEART 1000 TIMES' YA ADAPTATION

'IT'S ONLY THE END OF THE WORLD' TO FEATURE 
MARION COTILLARD, VINCENT CASSEL AND LEA SEYDOUX
It seems that Lea Seydoux and Vincent Cassel will star together again after BEAUTY AND THE BEAST since they've been just cast in last year's Cannes winner Xavier Dolan's new movie IT'S ONLY THE END OF THE WORLD! Rounding up the stellar cast are Marion Cotillard and Gaspard Ulliel. As 'Deadline' reports, the movie follows a writer who, after 12 years of absence, goes back to his hometown, planning on announcing his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, fits and feuds unfold, fuelled by loneliness and doubt, while all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people’s incapacity to listen, and love.

HAILEE STEINFELD 
TO LEAD 'BREAK MY HEART 1,000 TIMES' MOVIE ADAPTATION!
Yet another movie adaptation of a YA book will be the big screen version of  Daniel Water's BREAK MY HEART 1,000 TIMES which is going to star Hailee Steinfeld in the lead role. Described as a mix of 'The Fault In Our Stars' and 'The Sixth Sense' it is set after a cataclysmic event that has torn the barrier between our world and the next, leaving ‘Remnants’, ghost-like essences of the deceased, part of everyday life. After years of quiet coexistence with the living, a Remnant sends a threatening message to a young girl, propelling her on a mission with consequences that will forever change the course of her life. Scott Speer (STEP UP REVOLUTION) is directing!

INTRIGUING 'YOUTH' TEASER
 MICHAEL CAINE & RACHEL WEISZ
Staying in the field of foreign films, check out a rather intriguing teaser for Oscar Winner Paolo Sorrentino's YOUTH which stars Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel as two longtime friends vacationing in the Swiss Alps. Caine plays Fred, an acclaimed composer and conductor and Keitel is Mick, a renowned filmmaker. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. The two men reflect on their past, each finding that some of the most significant experiences can come later in life. Rachel Weisz, Jane Fonda and Paul Dano also star!

  4. Youth is the one I'm most interested in. I've loved Caine's work since I was a kid. The trailer is kind of odd though as it gives no sense of what the film's to be.

    As far as the house goes, I threw out every single thing we' own except for the beds and the musical instruments. We want no reminders of these last four hellish years. Also I had an 8 foot privacy fence put up around the back yard. And I've decorated it with tiny solar lights so it's like a fairy land back there.

    I'm back to reading blogs and catching up though, so I'll see you most every day.

    1. It is just a Cannes pre-teaser :) I hope I will manage to catch more of these artsy Cannes trailers this month.
      I do love walls and battlements around the house! Sadly, we only have wire fence in our backyard and the neighbours are constantly there and unavoidable

    2. I'm so glad to have that fence up as inside it I'm in my own private little world. One of my neighbors is an absolute horror. A few weeks ago their little boy came over to me and proceeded to tell me all the things "Mommy and Daddy" hate about me. I stood there and took it until he said "And this is what I hate about you" Then he launched into a diatribe about how I talk. He said he hates it that I don't talk like them and I sound funny He also hates me because I haven't tried to learn to "talk right" That's when I flipped my shit. Their yard is full of junk. They've broken down cars, a caravan, stacks of tires, rusted out steel drums, mouldy mattresses and various broken down shit in their yard. They also keep there dog locked up in a tiny cage outside all day and night. It barks constantly. So I then told him what kind of pigs I thought he and his family are. Then the fence went up. The battle is on and I'm going to win it.

    3. What the fuck? Such dastardly bastards they are... and to teach their hatred onto their kid... that is beyond disgusting. You shouldn't really care about the opinion of such nincompoops! It should probably come as a flattering remark if such mongrels say something bad about you. Wall the Feckers off!

  11. Great roundup of movies. Wow you had me at Gaspard Ulliel.:) It is only the end of the world looks like a big film to watch out for. The YA movie also looks very interesting.
