American Hustle: Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner popped up in period garb on the streets of Manhattan recently, filming scenes for director David O. Russell's American Hustle, a tale of corruption set in the late 1970s. Bradley Cooper also stars in the movie, which is due out on December 13. [Vulture]
The Man From U.N.C.L.E.: Tom Cruise has dropped out of the starring role in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., the spy thriller based on the 1960s TV show. Instead, he wants to concentrate on plans for Mission: Impossible 5, which is moving forward with writer Drew Pearce and director Christopher McQuarrie. The studio will still move forward with U.N.C.L.E. Guy Ritchie is slated to direct, and Armie Hammer is set to costar. Now all they need is a star of Cruise's caliber. [Deadline]
Cannes Film Festival: With Steven Spielberg serving as chairman, the jury for the Cannes Film Festival awarded its top prize to Blue Is the Warmest Color, a highly acclaimed drama about the relationship between two lesbians; director Abdellatif Kechiche and actresses Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux were also recognized. Another major award went to Joel and Ethan Coen's folk music tale Inside Llewyn Davis, while Bruce Dern received the Best Actor for his performance in Alexander Payne's Nebraska. [Fandor]
Ain't Them Bodies Saints Trailer: After winning acclaim at Sundance early this year, David Lowery's Ain't Them Bodies Saints received more positive critical responses at Cannes. The movie stars Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara as an outlaw couple on the run in 1970s Texas, and the first trailer is absolutely mesmerizing. Look for it in theaters on August 16. [JoBlo]
