More than once in Woody Allen’s 1930s-set romantic comedy-drama – the opening film at this year’s Cannes Festival – he uses an elegant tracking shot: the camera glides through a swanky Manhattan nightclub, floating past polished Art-Deco tables and stylish patrons, while Allen’s voiceover fills us in on who those patrons are and what their crimes and misdemeanours have been. In a way, that’s what happens throughout the film. Café Society drifts from character to character, from theme to theme, and from subplot to subplot, and while it never fails to look gorgeous, it doesn’t stop drifting long enough to show us anyone or anything in detail.
Every Game of Thrones season premiere needs its shock reveal – and season six is no different. As the name of the episode – The Red Woman – hints, this one pertains to red priestess Melisandre, to whom, it turns out, there’s much more than meets the eye (don’t worry, no spoilers ensue).
Production is under way for a new, live-action Ghost in the Shell movie, which will be one the first mainstream U.S. adaptations of a beloved Japanese manga series. And today, the movie studio behind the film, Paramount, tweeted out the first image from the set, showing Scarlett Johansson in costume (and wig) as the film's lead character.
