News, The Light Between Oceans  •  By  •  0 Comments

The Light Between the Oceans is set to screen in competition in this year’s Venice Film Festival, which will run from August 31 to September 10.

The Venice Film Festival, the world’s oldest major film event, laid out the plans for its 73rd edition on Thursday, with a host of major names among the 55 features due to descend upon the historic Italian city next month.

Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals is among the biggest titles set to screen in competition, with the LA-set thriller’s stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams expected to attend. The film will compete alongside Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi Arrivals, giving  Adams double duties on the red carpet, plus Emir Kusturica’s On the Milky Road and Terence Malick’s Cate Blanchett-fronted documentary Voyage of Time. Audiences will also get to see the film that brought Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander together, Derek Cianfrance’s The Light Between Oceans, and also assess Natalie Portman’s turn as Jackie Onassis in Pablo Lorraine’s biopic Jackie.

The unlikely trio of Jason Momoa, Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves may drop by the Venice Lido for the premiere of The Bad Batch, Ana Lily Amirpour’s follow up to her critically-acclaimed debut A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and described as “a post-apocalyptic cannibal love story set in a Texas wasteland.” Also in the running for the Golden Lion is Martin Koolhoven’s Brimstone, starring Dakota Fanning, Kit Harington and Guy Pearce. As he previously been announced, the festival will open with Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, which will also compete.

Out of competition, the festival will close with Antoine Fuqua’s all-star The Magnificent Seven remake. Mel Gibson’s WWII drama Hacksaw Ridge will also screen, as will Philippe Falardeau’s The Bleeder, starring Liev Schrieber, Naomi Watts and Elisabeth Moss. Another actress likely to have repeat red carpet appearances is Portman, who stars alongside Lily-Rose Depp in Rebecca Zlotowski’s Planetarium, being given a special out-of-competition screening.

Alien: Covenant, Interviews  •  By  •  0 Comments

Collider’s own Steve Weintraub recently spoke with Fassbender by phone in anticipation of his upcoming collaboration with The Place Beyond the Pines filmmaker Derek Cianfrance on the drama The Light Between Oceans, and during the course of their conversation Fassbender touched a bit on Covenant. The main difference this time around, it seems, is that Ridley Scott is aiming to really heighten the fright factor.

“This Alien is going to be… I’m very excited to see it and everybody in the film was saying this is a film that we all want to see. It’s much scarier than Prometheus but it’s got the same sort of scope of Prometheus. It’s kind of got more of the sort of thriller, imminent disaster feel that Alien had, so it’s kind of a beautiful meeting of both of those films. I’m really excited to see it, I think it’s gonna be super scary number one and then again with the massive scope of Prometheus… Once it starts and the ball starts rolling, it doesn’t let up. It’s really gonna bring chills to the cinema.”
