You may not know Haley Bennett’s name yet, but by the end of the fall movie season you’ll certainly recognize her. The 28-year-old actress, who’s appeared in ‘Hardcore Henry’ and ‘The Equalizer,’ has been acting for almost a decade, but its her trio of upcoming films this year that are bound to put her on your radar.
ScreenCrush’s Matt Singer and Erin Whitney are back from the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. You can read all of their coverage so far here, but if you want the digest version, they compiled this list of some of the fest’s highlights: the best performances, the biggest surprises, and the worst disappointments. What are the movies people are going to be talking about this fall? These. (Except the ones they didn’t like, of course.)
If the human race ever dies out and we leave something behind for other live forms to learn about us from, can it please be narrated by Cate Blanchett?
Do you like looking at gorgeous imagery? Do you want to listen to Brad Pitt‘s voice in a darkened movie theater? Then you’ll probably like Terrence Malick’s ‘Voyage of Time.’
We’ve had two pieces of Terrence Malick news in less than a week and there’s three upcoming Malick movies to look forward to. What a time to be alive!

He can be imaginative, though a dreamer distracted by fantasy, a romantic, but selfish with desires for stimulation.

According to Salem Tarot, the “Knight of Cups” card “signifies a dreamy, caring, loving individual from your present. This Knight pursues his thoughts and fantasies, and intuitively attunes to the needs of others. He may signify a lover who does not...
