New ‘The Bling Ring’ clip: Emma Watson talks Angelina Jolie to Leslie Mann

Most of the marketing for ‘The Bling Ring’ has been focusing on Emma Watson’s character, largely because Watson is the best known name out of the cast. However, Leslie Mann’s character in the film is actually based on the mother of two of the girls in the ‘Bling Ring’ group.

A new clip from the film features Mann’s character talking with her two children with a board cut-out with Angelina Jolie’s images all over it. Mann asks her three daughters [played by Taissa Farmiga, Emma Watson, and another girl], “What qualities do you guys admire about Angelina Jolie?”

One of the daughters says, “Her husband.” Another says, “Her hot bod.” Mann replies, “Ok, well the hot bod is not a characteristic. But ok.” The clip segues into a montage of scenes from the rest of the film, including a brief scene where Emma Watson’s Nicki is checking out some of the workers in the house.

The Bling Ring just premiered at the Cannes Film festival to strong reviews, and it looks like it will definitely be a movie to watch come summer. ‘The Bling Ring’ releases on June 14th, 2013 and stars Mann, Watson, and Farmiga along with Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Gavin Rossdale, and Claire Julien.

Shake Your Tail Feather with First Musical Teaser Trailer for ‘Rio 2′

It’s time to shake your tail feathers again. After Blue Sky’s musical animated film Rio became a surprise hit, the blue macaws voiced by Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, along with a colorful supporting cast voiced by the likes of will.i.am, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, Jamie Foxx and more, are back for Rio 2. The film doesn’t arrive until next spring, but a teaser trailer has arrived that will have kids dancing in the theaters and tapping their feet. It’s a cute little trailer, but as someone who wasn’t impressed by the first film, this one has some work to do to get me excited. Watch it!

Rio 2 finds Jewel (Anne Hathaway), Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and their three kids leaving their domesticated life in that magical city for a journey to the Amazon. There they encounter a menagerie of characters who are born to be wild with voices provided by Andy Garcia, Rita Moreno, Bruno Mars and Kristin Chenoweth. In addition, will.i.am, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, Bebel Gilberto, Jake T. Austin and Jamie Foxx are all reprising their roles from the first film. The animated sequel is directed by Carlos Saldanha (Rio) and Fox and Blue Sky send it to theaters on April 11th, 2014 next spring.

Cannes 2013: The Bling Ring, review

Dir: Sofia Coppola; Starring: Emma Watson, Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga, Leslie Mann. 15 cert, 90 min.

Of all the new words to have entered our language in the last 25 years, is there any as sweet as ‘bling’? Say it out loud and savour the way it barges out of your mouth: a blubbery plosive followed by a feline arch and flick of the tongue. That one syllable bursts with all the joyful, crass show-offishiness of Sofia Coppola’s new comic drama, which opened the Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard programme this morning.

What is Un Certain Regard? In an interview with the trade paper Variety on Tuesday, Thierry Fremaux, the festival’s artistic director, described the strand as a home for films that “are not the films for competition” – perhaps less meaty, but certainly no worse, than the pictures selected to compete for the Palme d’Or. “It doesn’t mean that the films aren’t good,” he said, “but sometimes an author writes a 400-page novel and sometimes a 120-page novel. They are not the same, but both need to exist.”

Well, Coppola’s uproarious and bitingly timely film feels every inch a necessary artwork: the story is closely based on a string of true events that occurred in 2008 and 2009, but if it hadn’t actually happened, someone – Coppola, probably – would have to make it up. Her last film, Somewhere, showed us the showbusiness world from inside the bubble: this one has us on the outside, noses pressed greedily to the glass, thoughtfully fingering an ice pick.

The Bling Ring centres on some coddled Los Angeles high schoolers, played by Emma Watson, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien, who, for reasons of teenage ennui, take a shine to cat-burglary. While reading a gossip website they notice that Paris Hilton, the celebrity heiress, is making a public appearance in Las Vegas. Her Los Angeles home, therefore, will be vacant for the night; and they surmise that Hilton, who is not chiefly celebrated for her mind, would be the kind of person to leave an emergency door key under the mat.

Delightfully, so it proves, and in they sneak. (This is one of many jaw-slackening true-life details in Coppola’s script: in addition, the burglary scenes were actually shot in Hilton’s house, which at a stroke catapults the film’s prurience factor through the ceiling.) Every room seems to have an antechamber crammed with haute couture; every drawer and cupboard is crusted with jewellery. Hilton has so much of everything that taking a little bit of something, the gang decide, would be a victimless crime: so they do.

Nicki Minaj Makes Film Debut in Cameron Diaz’s ‘The Other Woman’

The cast already includes Leslie Mann, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kate Upton.

Nicki Minaj is in final negotiations to make her live-action movie debut, joining the cast of Fox’s revenge comedy The Other Woman.

Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kate Upton are on the roll call.

Nick Cassavetes is directing the comedy, which centers on a woman (Diaz) who finds out that she is “the other woman” in an affair. She teams up with the wife (Mann) to get revenge on the cheating cad of a husband, being played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

(Upton is another one of Coster-Waldau’s mistresses who ends up joining the other two in the revenge scheme.)
Minaj will play Diaz’s opinionated assistant — a woman on her third marriage — at a law firm.

The singer currently appears on American Idol as one of the judges and has voiced a character in Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift.

Julie Yorn is producing the project, which was written by Melissa Stack and will shoot in late spring/early summer in New York.

Minaj is repped by Gee Roberson and Brian Sher.

‘The Bling Ring’ trailer: Adderall, Facebook and ‘the lifestyle that everybody kinda wants’

“Girls! Time for your Adderall,” shouts Leslie Mann’s character to two sleeping teenagers in a brightly idyllic suburban Los Angeles home in the opening shot of the new trailer for The Bling Ring, before we smash cut to the teens acting cooler-than-thou at a dark club while Azealia Banks plays in the background and Paris Hilton and Kirsten Dunst make the rounds. These kids are way past pop tarts, orange juice, and movie nights.

Sofia Coppola’s (Lost In Translation) highly anticipated new film takes on the real-life teenage criminals who stole over $3 million in art, clothes, and jewels from Los Angeles-based celebrities like Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Rachel Bilson between October 2008 and August 2009.

In the trailer, below we see the origin — bored kids on Facebook noticing that Paris Hilton is hosting a party in Vegas. All it takes is one quick online search for “Paris Hilton address” and they’re off. “Let’s go to Paris’s,’” says Nicki (Emma Watson). “I want to rob.”

Check out the trailer below, and watch how things quickly spiral out of control for the label and celebrity obsessed teens who are all too skilled at explaining away their crimes.

“The Bling Ring” Joins Cannes Film Festival Line-Up

SOFIA COPPOLA’s The Bling Ring will show during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The film – starring Emma Watson, Katie Chang, Israel Broussard and Leslie Mann – will open the Un Certain Regard schedule on May 16.

The section is part of the festival’s official selection, and runs parallel to the main competition (where films battle it out for the coveted Palme d’Or prize), instead featuring a selection of original, unusual and often more obscure international productions. The category has been part of the festival line-up since 1978.

The Bling Ring tells the real-life story of a group of fame-obsessed teenagers who break into the houses of Hollywood celebrities. Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby will premiere as the opening night film on May 15 – but will not take part in either competition.

Other highlights from the Cannes schedule include Only God Forgives by Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn; Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace biopic, Behind The Candelabra; The Immigrant starring Joaquin Phoenix and Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard; and the Coen brothers’ latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis, with Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake playing the leading roles.

Kate Upton Joining Cameron Diaz in ‘The Other Woman’

Leslie Mann and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau already are on board the revenge comedy.

Kate Upton is in talks to join Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann as women seeking revenge against a philanderer in Fox’s The Other Woman.

Nick Cassavetes is directing the comedy, which centers on a woman (Diaz) who finds out that she is “the other woman” in an affair. She teams up with the wife (Mann) to get revenge on the cheating cad of a husband, being played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Upton is another one of Coster-Waldau’s mistresses who has no idea he is married and ends up joining the other two in the revenge scheme.

Julie Yorn is producing the project, which was written by Melissa Stack and will shoot in late spring/early summer in New York.

Other Woman is the biggest role yet for swimsuit model-turned-actress Upton, who has had brief appearances in Fox’s The Three Stooges and Tower Heist.

MovieWeb: Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow Talk This Is 40

Judd Apatow has made his directing career out of telling human stories that resonate with a lot of real emotion, while also being extremely funny comedies. He has a signature style that continues to shines through in his latest effort, This Is 40, which arrives on Blu-ray and DVD today, Friday, March 22nd.

This particular outing allowed him to once again work with his wife, Leslie Mann, and their two children Maude Apatow and Iris Apatow, in telling the continuing story of married couple Deb and Pete (Paul Rudd), whom we met in Judd Apatow’s previous comedy Knocked Up. Here, the husband and wife are struggling to make ends meet while keeping their relationship afloat. Its Judd Apatow’s most personal film to date, and a welcome entry in his long and storied career as both a writer and a producer.

We recently caught up with both Judd Apatow and his wife Leslie Mann to talk about the movie’s reception with critics, one of whom Judd had a very public battle with, and how their kids influence some of the choices they make in their careers as artists.

Will we see Pete and Deb again in another movie somewhere down the line? Here is our conversation with one of Hollywood’s most beloved and grounded couples.

I read a lot of the reviews that came out when the film was in theaters, and it seemed like reactions were all over the map. Which, to me, means the movie is really striking a cord with people. When you don’t see it sway completely to the left or right. Some people hate it. Some people love it. I take that as a sign the movie was done right.

Leslie Mann: Yeah, I think that’s good. I think that means we’ve done a good job. It seems a little strange. But good. I think we did a good job if people are able to have heated discussions about it. And care to have heated discussions about it. And disagree, and feel passionately about it, then great.

I think some of the negative reviews came from people who couldn’t stomach watching it. Some of the movie is a little bit hard to sit through. Especially if you are going through tough times in your own relationship.

Leslie Mann: Oh, yeah. Uh-huh. I can see that. Those people shouldn’t watch it. (Laughs) If they are going to have a hard time stomaching it, their relationship is clearly on the wrong path. (Laughs)

Maybe it’ll help them out. Maybe they will squeeze their eyes shut through the beginning, but stick with it…

Leslie Mann: Maybe…Wait, what’s in the beginning that’s hard to stomach?

Some of the fights, and the arguments. If you are going through something with somebody, this is not a fun time. This isn’t the movie to take your mind off your problems. But it helps. It’s therapeutic in some ways.

Leslie Mann: I say, don’t be such a puss. (Laughs) Don’t be such a fucking pussy!

That’s what the tagline of the movie should have been. Don’t be such a fucking pussy! Just sit down and watch it!

Leslie Mann: Maybe you should just watch this fucking movie, you fucking pussy! (Laughs)

I hope you aren’t talking to me. I don’t have a problem stomaching the fights in the movie. I’m purely going off some of the complaints I’ve read about the movie.

Leslie Mann: I like the movie, so…I’m really happy with it. If I’m not happy with it, which has happened before, then I believe all of that stuff. It might get me down. But if I genuinely like something, then I really don’t care. Not if somebody says something negative about it.

Leslie Mann talks ‘This Is 40′ DVD, ‘Girls’ and going back to ‘Modern Family’

Making “This Is 40″ was a family affair for Leslie Mann: Her husband Judd Apatow wrote and directed and their daughters Maude and Iris play her daughters on screen. They even filmed it in their own neighborhood.

While the film was conceived as a sort-of-sequel to “Knocked Up” — both Mann and Paul Rudd play the same characters they played in that 2007 comedy hit — “This Is 40″ stands on its own as an alternately raunchy and tender look at love, marriage and the ups and downs of getting older together.

In anticipation of today’s release of “This Is 40″ on DVD and Blu-ray, we spoke with Mann about working on the film, guest starring on her husband’s buzzed-about show “Girls” and possibly returning to ABC’s “Modern Family.”

It feels like this movie must be special for you because it’s so connected to your life. Does that make it more exciting for people to see or are you also a little nervous about what it might reveal?
Leslie Mann: It doesn’t really feel like that to me. When I watch it I don’t feel like I’m watching my family or what goes on at my house. By the time it winds up on film it’s like a soup of so many different things and observations and people’s relationships. A little bit of our relationship, a little bit of Paul Rudd’s, a little bit of my best friend’s, a little bit of my mom’s — it’s not just me or my family. So I don’t feel uncomfortable with that. I’m really proud of it and I’m really proud of everyone in it. I want people to see it because of that.

I’ve heard there are quite a few deleted scenes on the DVD. Was there anything that didn’t make it in the movie that you’re really excited for people to see?
There are a lot of deleted scenes but I don’t know what [exactly]. I wasn’t a part of that. Maybe the extended version of Melissa [McCarthy] ranting [in the principal's office], which she did for a very long time. That would be fun to watch over and over again. I’m not sure what else is on there but I’m sure it’s good. Judd really cares about that stuff and wants it to be good. He’s been working on the DVD extras for a year and a half now.

Did everyone in the cast have the freedom to improvise, including your daughters?
Judd started as a stand-up comedian and he’s the writer so he does something most people don’t do which is he rewrites as we’re rolling. He’s yelling out ideas and lines to us [during filming]. So it may have the energy of something being improvised and it is definitely being changed up, but it’s not really the actor just making s— up on the spot. If you have that going on at the end of the day the scene won’t make any sense at all. That’s what gives it the feeling of spontaneity. Sorry, hold on. [Yelling away from the phone] Judd leave! [Back on the phone] He keeps trying to eavesdrop. He’s hiding around the corner right now like a little mouse.
