With all the talk of the rumors and news about the “Blade Runner” sequel/prequel/whatever and Ridley Scott‘s Cormac McCarthy penned “The Counselor” we kind of forgot about “Prometheus.” But Fox didn’t and just to remind you this film is still coming, a new viral clip of sorts has arrived.

Yesterday, rumors flew around that Guy Pearce would be playing Peter Weyland in the film and well, as it turns out, he is. In this Ted Talk the honcho behind the outfit more commonly known as The Company goes ahead and explains what exactly Prometheus refers to, in case you didn’t go to high school, or are unaware of common points of reference. It’s a bit gradiose (and dry) and thankfully this clip, directed by Luke Scott, won’t be appearing in the actual film. And to be fair, “Prometheus” does need some explicating for the non-hardcore audience so assume this fits the bill.

This Is Not A Film’ Is Jafar Panahi’s Highly Moving Depiction Of His Own House Arrest

The title of Jafar Panahi‘s “This Is Not A Film” is a nod to the fact that the 75-minute feature is shot on a Dv camera and an iPhone, and consists mostly of Panahi and his collaborator and friend Mojtaba Mirtahmasb hanging out in the former’s high-rise apartment over the course of a day. But it’s also a postmodern jab at the lousy circumstances that led to its own existence — this is not a film, because Panahi is banned from making films for the next two decades. He’s under house arrest, awaiting news of his appeal of the six-year prison sentence he was given for his actions in support of Iran’s opposition movement, forbidden from talking to the press and from leaving the country, silenced. For its premiere at Cannes, which Panahi wasn’t, of course, able to attend, it was reportedly smuggled out on a Usb stick hidden inside a cake

In recent years, rising French thespian Lea Seydoux has intermittently been crossing the Atlantic for Hollywood film roles, making appearances in “Inglourious Basterds,”Robin Hood,” “Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol” and “Midnight In Paris.” And while those films have only seen her play smaller supporting or cameo roles, it’s certainly brought attention to many of her films back in Europe including recent Berlin-opener “Farewell, My Queen” opposite Diane Kruger.

On the back of all that success, Seydoux has now joined Abdellatif Kechiche‘s “Blue Is A Hot Color,” an adaptation of Julie Maroh’s relationship-drama graphic novel “Blue” which will see her star opposite fellow up-and-comer Adèle Exarchopoulos for the story of a teenage girl who unexpectedly falls in love with another woman and faces her parents’ and friends’ judgment.

There are certainly some pretty horrible film titles that get churned out on a regular basis, and while they probably mean little in the grand scheme of things, naming a movie is still something Hollywood takes very seriously. On that note, it looks like a trio of highly anticipated films have had their titles put under the microscope recently, with two now set for changes and one gaining its first name.

For starters, Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s first attempt at simultaneously starring, writing and directing a feature — a project long in the works considering his ventures on website hitRECord — has been given a title, or at the very least now has a working title to go by. The film seems to be going by “Don Jon’s Addiction,” as recently reported by THR and detailed on the Voltage Pictures website. The title is of course a play on Don Juan, »

The Best & Worst Moments Of The 84th Academy Awards

How’s your Oscar hangover? We’ve all got the prosecco sweats in the Playlist offices this morning, but that’s about the norm for a Monday. Or a Tuesday. Or a Thursday. Anyway, the dust is settling post-Oscars, with the winners basking in their glory, and the losers digging through their script pile to find a disabled Holocaust survivor to play to give them another chance at the big prize.

But the question is: how was the ceremony? After one of the very worst last year, and the controversy after Brett Ratner was forced out (with original host Eddie Murphy following soon after), they were always likely to go for a safe year, and that’s exactly what we got: a dull ceremony that could have come from pretty much any time in history. It wasn’t the worst of ceremonies — there were quite a few good little moments, but there were also plenty of lowlights. »
