When your father is someone as prolific as filmmaker Ridley Scott, your directorial debut is bound to come up just a little bit short. But in Jordan Scott’s case, a little bit short is still very, very good. The younger Scott forges her way into feature film territory with “Cracks,” a period drama/thriller about a tight-knit group of girls at an English boarding school. At St. Mathilda’s, the diving team
Essentially, Perfect Sense is a romantic love story set against an apocalyptic backdrop. It tells of how a chef, Michael (Ewan McGregor ), and a scientist, Susan (Eva Green ), fall in love as an epidemic begins to rob people of their sensory perceptions. Kim Fupz Aakeson’s cunningly written screenplay imagines a world in which the inhabitants slowly lose their senses, one by one. The apocalypse is refreshingly personal and,

Tim Burton fans in Los Angeles can rejoice now that his LACMA exhibit is open. The Wrap took the chance to chat with the director at the exhibition’s opening. Of his Dark Shadows adaptation (currently in production), Burton says, “we’re sort of getting right in there.” He confirms the project has a “weird tone,” and will be somewhat soap-opera-esque (like the 1960s TV show that precedes it), but adds: “I’m
Thanks to George for the link. In a slightly alternate world not too far in the future a young girl called Rebecca (Ruby O.Fee) is embraced by Thomas (Tristan Christopher) her neighbor, in an undisclosed coastal town where she is staying with her grandfather.

What must the pressure be like for a first-time filmmaker with an uncle and a father that are both world-class filmmakers? For Jordan Scott, daughter of Ridley and niece to Tony, it must be pretty damn awesome, especially when your debut feature film is as surprisingly well crafted as CRACKS. Jordan Scott directed and co-wrote CRACKS with Ben Court and Caroline Ip, based on the novel by Sheila Kohler. What

Depp will play another pallid protagonist in the form of Barnabas Collins, a vampire, opposite other Burton regular Helena Bonham Carter, as well as Chloe Moretz, Jackie Earle Haley, Eva Green and Michelle Pfeiffer, while Danny Elfman will return for scoring duties.

Eva Green shattered the bubbly, sex-crazed Bond Girl stereotype with her eloquent and seamless turn as Vesper Lynd in 2006’s explosive blockbuster “Casino Royale.” But the French beauty has always been an indie darling at heart, first winning acclaim for taking us on a twisted romantic journey in Bernardo Bertolucci’s “The Dreamers.” Now Green returns to her roots with “Cracks,” starring as the sophisticated yet shattered Ms. G, who battles
