- On The Road
Kristen Stewart returns to the big screen this autumn with a new project that is different to anything that we have ever seen her in before.
It is perhaps the most risque role for the actress so far as she tries to move away from The Twilight Saga and the character of Bella Swan.
Directed by Walter Salles the movie is a big screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac's novel and sees the actress team up with Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley and Kirsten Dunst.
Just after his father's death, Sal Paradise, an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty, a devastatingly charming ex-con, married to the very liberated and seductive Marylou.
Sal and Dean bond instantly. Determined not to get locked in to a constricted life, the two friends cut their ties and take to the road with Marylou.
Thirsting for liberty, the three young people head off in search of the world, of other encounters, and of themselves.
On The Road is released 12th October.
- Rust & Bone
Another movie that is being praised left, right and centre if Rust & Bone - which sees Oscar winner Marion Cotillard lead the cast.
And Cotillard could be On The Road to winning a second Best Actress gong as she delivers another knockout performance in the Jacques Audiard directed movie.
This is a meaty role for Cotillard and co-star Matthias Schoenaerts to get their teeth in as they play two characters who try to find redemption in each other.
Stephanie (Cotillard) is a killer whale trainer who late one night meets Alain (Schoenaerts) in a fracas at the nightclub where he works as a bouncer.
Put in charge of his young son, Alain has come from Belgium to Antibes to live with his sister and her husband as a family.
Alain’s bond with Stephanie grows deeper after she suffers a horrible accident, bringing the two together once more.

Calvin (Dano) is a young novelist who achieved phenomenal success early in his career but is now struggling with his writing - as well as his romantic life.
