For the past few weeks, Hollywood stars have flocked to the UK to attend the BFI London Film Festival. For many of them, it was the continuation of the film festival trail to promote their buzzed-about movies, including Sandra Bullock for Gravity, Carey Mulligan and Oscar Isaac for Inside Llewyn Davis, and Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan for Kill Your Darlings. The event kicked off with the BFI Luminous Gala, which was attended by the likes of Sienna Miller and Damian Lewis, and throughout the festival Kate Winslet made a radiant pregnant appearance, and Gracie Otto debuted the documentary she directed, The Last Impresario. It wrapped with the closing night gala and premiere of Saving Mr. Banks on Sunday night. For all the BFI Film Festival action, click through.
Daniel Radcliffe keeps expanding his post-Harry Potter career, and in the trailer for Kill Your Darlings, he's getting far, far away from the boy wizard. As 1960s beat poet Allen Ginsberg, Radcliffe is curly-haired and bespectacled in his freshman year at Columbia, where he's studying literature (if you remember from high school, he's the guy who goes on to write "Howl"). At school he meets Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan), who both entrances him and introduces him to other future literary stars, like William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston).
The trailer does take a dark turn about halfway through, and I'm curious about what dangerous misadventures Allen and Lucien get into with Michael C. Hall's character. I'm also excited to see Radcliffe's performance, especially since we know Ginsberg experimented with drugs and pushed the limits of poetry of his day, and I'm constantly impressed with DeHaan's work. Kill Your Darlings opened at Sundance, and it will also hit the Toronto International Film Festival The film opens in cinemas on Nov. 7. You can check out the trailer after the jump.
The 70th annual Venice Film Festival is in full effect! It's a big milestone for the event, and we've already taken a look back at all the glamour over the years. So far, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney have cruised into Venice to promote their upcoming film, Gravity, and have quickly become the golden couple of the event. Stars like Tom Welling, James Franco and Freida Pinto have also popped up, as well as Dakota Fanning, who walked the red carpet for the screening of Night Moves. Tom Hardy looked sharp at the premiere of Locke, and eternally stylish couple Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson attended a Jaeger-LeCoultre gala dinner.
