Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA. Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of “Game of Thrones”) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Akihiro (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), and Kameyo (Academy Award nominee Brenda Vaccaro). But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known. With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara), to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family, and fulfill his heroic destiny.
“Kubo And The Two Strings” opens on August 19th.
One drama expected to debut at this year’s Cannes Film Festival is Jim Sheridan‘s latest project, an adaptation of Sebastian Barry‘s The Secret Scripture. Featuring Rooney Mara, Jack Reynor, Theo James, Aidan Turner, Eric Bana, and Vanessa Redgrave, the story follows our main character writing a diary of her earlier years while in a Roscommon mental hospital. One of our most-anticipated of the year, we now have the first image thanks to Scannain. Featuring the Carol star alongside Jack Reynor, a highlight in this year’s Sing Street and a contender for the coveted role of young Han Solo, it gives us a glimpse at the romance to come. While Relativity Media has U.S. rights, with their financial troubles as of late, hopefully someone else steps in to distribute this year. Check out the synopsis below as we await the trailer and premiere details.
Roseanne McNulty (Vanessa Redgrave/Rooney Mara), a once vibrant and lively beauty in her youth, has spent the majority of her adult life confined to a mental hospital in rural Ireland. She has been institutionalized for so long, no one seems to remember why she was hospitalized in the first place.
When a new chief psychiatrist, Dr. Greene (Eric Bana), arrives, he takes a keen interest in Roseanne. He finds a hidden memoir, written over the course of decades by Roseanne, which unravels the mystery of her incarceration, as well as telling the tale of her passionate, yet tortured, life.
The Secret Scripture is expected to be released this fall

It’s hard to imagine any one better suited to bring Patricia Highsmith’s densely meditative novel The Price of Salt to the screen than Rooney Mara. Who but the girl formerly with the dragon tattoo could make so alluring the intense interiority of Highsmith’s protagonist, Therese? Even when Mara presents a frosty and furrowed façade, as she did in the incest-rotten arctic of Stieg Larsson’s Sweden, and does here in an Audrey Hepburn-y New York of the 1950s, she doesn’t reject the camera’s attention, but lets us see the horror or awkwardness or drama of the moment through her eyes. Guarded though her characters may be, Mara the actress allows us in, to be as flooded with the feeling as she is. It’s an engrossing thing to watch, and Mara’s performance in Todd Haynes’s film from the Highsmith novel, titled Carol, shared the award for best actress at Cannes, and it may be her best to date—candid and deep, but with a sort of lightness.
