One of the webloids is attempting to create a feud between Angelina Jolie and Penelope Cruz, but the alleged drama is completely made-up. The bogus article claims Cruz is upset about the fellow actress working with her husband Javier Bardem in the upcoming Bride of Frankenstein remake, but the story is inaccurate on several levels.

Aiming to make an impact this Oscar season, the inaugural Animation Is Film Festival from GKids, the Annecy International Animation Festival, Variety, and Acifa-Hollywood launches October 20-22 at the Tcl Chinese 6 Theater.
The festival will present a selection of new animated feature films from Asia, Europe, South America, and North America, with juried and audience prizes and filmmakers attending most screenings. Additionally, the festival will feature studio events, special screenings, short film programs, and a Vr lounge.
Aif seems well timed: The Academy now allows all members to vote for animated features, using preferential voting. However, it remains to be seen what the dynamic will be in terms of mainstream versus indie nominees.
GKids, which has nine Oscar nominations (including this year’s “My Life as a Zucchini”), has seven movies in contention this season; four showcase in competition at Aif. The highlight is “The Breadwinner” (October 20), a coproduction of Ireland, »

Another woman-directed film based on a true story has been added to the foreign-language Oscar race. On Monday Cambodia selected Angelina Jolie’s “First They Killed My Father” as its pick for the 2018 Academy Awards, and now comes word that Slovenia will submit Hanna Antonina Wojcik Slak’s “Rudar,” or “Miner.”
The former is an adaptation of human rights activist Loung Ung’s 2000 non-fiction book, and the latter is based on the experiences of a Bosnian miner who migrated to Slovenia. “In an abandoned mine, he discovers the remains of victims of post-World War II reprisal killings,” The Hollywood Reporter summarizes. “In his determination to fight for a decent burial of the executed people, he goes against his managers and loses his job.”
Other women-directed films submitted for consideration in the foreign-language category include Ana Urushadze’s “Scary Mother,” a psychological thriller, Annemarie Jacir’s “Wajib,” a dramedy about a father and his estranged son, and Agnieszka Holland’s “Spoor,” a crime drama about a woman seeking revenge after hunters kill her dog.
Slovenia Chooses Hanna Antonina Wojcik Slak’s “Miner” as Foreign-Language Oscar Pick was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

As the first trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie announces, Lara Croft's legend is beginning ... but it's clear from the first glimpse of Roar Uthaug's cinematic reboot of the video game franchise that this new version is going to be very unlike the Angelina Jolie vehicles of old. Heat Vision's Graeme McMillan and Ryan Parker try to get over their surprise at a desexualized Lara Croft and ask: Could this movie be better than anticipated?

The first trailer for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot has arrived and it didn't necessarily blow anyone's socks off. This is just a Lara Croft teaser, but this may not be the movie that winds up saving video game movies in Hollywood. The movie does, however, clearly take into consideration that many people aren't a fan of movies ignoring the story of the games. In this case, the Tomb Raider trailer is essentially one giant Easter egg for the 2013 Tomb Raider video game.
IGN decided to do a side-by-side comparison between the new Tomb Raider teaser trailer and some of the comparable game footage from the 2013 Tomb Raider game, which served as a reboot of the game series. To say that the two share some similarities would be an understatement. Shot for shot, the trailer is taking things we saw in the game and putting them on the big screen. »

Warner Bros. released the first action-packed trailer for the film on Tuesday, and we think it's safe to say, this is the 28-year-old actress' most badass role yet.
In the trailer, Vikander, dressed in a gray tank top and olive green pants, channels the fierceness of Angelina Jolie, who played the character in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and the sequel, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.
"Close the tomb once and for all," a voiceover says, as Croft leaps, ducks and slides around various structures. "The fate of humanity is now in your hands."

An action-packed trailer for the Alicia Vikander-led “Tomb Raider” reboot has landed. It’s clear that there’s plenty of violence, chase scenes, and CGI in the potential franchise, but the spot kicks off with Lara Croft (Vikander) making a quiet promise to her father (Dominic West, “The Affair”).
Lara’s father, an adventurer, is missing. When she finds her way into his secret quarters, a video is waiting for her. “If you’re listening to this, then I must be dead,” her father says. “I found something — a tomb called the Mother of Death. If Trinity succeeds, our world is in danger. Promise me you will stop them.” “I promise,” Lara says, looking at the image of her father. And just like that, the fate of humankind rests on her shoulders.
The heroine heads off to a destination her father has marked on a map, an island that, according to the film’s official synopsis, “might be somewhere off the coast of Japan.” To get there Lara will have to travel right in the middle of what’s called the Devil’s Sea. The trailer shows just how worthy of that nickname the sea is.
Angelina Jolie previously led a “Tomb Raider” franchise, starring in 2001’s “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” and 2003’s “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.” The films are based on one of the best-selling video games of all time.
Vikander’s “Tomb Raider” hits theaters March 16, 2018. She can currently be seen in “Tulip Fever,” a period romance in theaters now. The Oscar winner had two films screen at this month’s Toronto International Film Festival, Lisa Langseth’s “Euphoria,” a drama about two sisters, and “Submergence,” a story of two lovers who embark on dangerous missions across the globe from each other.
Check out the trailer and a feature about what playing the iconic character means to Vikander below.

Following a brief tease earlier this week, Warner Brothers have finally released the first full trailer for their upcoming Tomb Raider reboot.

“Your father’s gone. You can pick up where he left off,” Croft is told in the first official trailer. “I see so much of him in you.”
Following a shipwreck, Croft ends up in enemy territory. “You shouldn’t have come here,” Walton Goggins’ character tells her. “But I’m glad that you did.”
As the rest of the action-packed trailer plays out, Croft’s mission is made clear: “Close the tomb once and for all. The fate of humanity is now in your hands,” a voiceover says.
Roar Uthaug directed the movie based on a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Daniel Wu and Dominic West also star. The film is adapted from a popular video game. Angelina Jolie played the character in two films — one released in 2001 called “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” and »

If you were worried about Alicia Vikander being able to fill Angelina Jolie's cargo pants in the Tomb Raider reboot, worry no more. In the brief first look at the 28-year-old Oscar winner as the titular raider of tombs, Lara Croft, Vikander seems to be holding her own as she dives off cliffs into a choppy river and dramatically slides under razor-sharp booby traps. While that might be the same song and dance we got with Jolie in the first two films, Lara's backstory is getting an update. The action film, which isn't due out until March 16, sees Lara as a 21-year-old, fiercely independent bike courier living in London on her own seven years after the disappearance of her eccentric adventurer father. She sets out to solve the mystery of his death, which involves a dangerous journey to a mythical tomb somewhere off the coast of Japan. Dominic West, »

After winning a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Girl, Interrupted back in 2000, Angelina Jolie soon followed it up portraying Lara Croft in Tomb Raider. Now, Alicia Vikander is set to do the same. Following her win for The Danish Girl, the Ex Machina star will play the videogame heroine in a tentpole set for next spring and directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave), and the first trailer has now landed.
“She has all the fierce, tough, curious, intelligent traits,” Vikander tells EW, “but we’ve stripped away all of her experience. She hasn’t gone on an adventure just yet. She thought he was a stuck up businessperson living in the modern youth culture of suburban London, but then this whole box of information. This is the beginning.”
