On Saturday, Meryl Streep and Jodie Foster joined forces at the Jacob Burns Film Center, where Jonathan Demme was presented with the 2014 Vision Award for his remarkable career as a director, producer, and screenwriter, as well as his significant involvement in the JBFC’s film, education, and outreach programs. Foster won her second Academy Award for her performance in Demme’s “Silence of the Lambs” (for which Demme won Best Director) and Streep played Eleanor Shaw in his 2004 of “The Manchurian Candidate”. The Jacob Burns Film Center is a nonprofit cultural arts organization that aims to present the best of independent, documentary, and world cinema, promote 21st century literacy, and make film a vibrant part of the community.

The Weinstein Company has released a first batch of production stills, featuring an image of Meryl as Chief Elder. You can watch the picture in full resolution in the image library. In a perfect world where there is no conflict, racism or sickness, every member of society has a specific role, and 16-year-old Jonas is selected to be the Receiver of Memory. As Jonas uncovers the truth behind his world’s past, he discovers that many years earlier, his forefathers gave up humanity in order to have a stable society. “The Giver” releases on August 15, 2014.

Update: A video esxcerpt of Meryl’s speech, as well as additional pictures have been added. Yesterday, Jane Fonda was honored as the 42nd recipient of the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award by a star-studded crowd that included Michael Douglas, Sally Field and Meryl Streep. Accepting the American Film Institute’s 42nd Life Achievement Award, Jane Fonda exclaimed, “I’m so happy to add another woman’s name to the list.” Pictures from the ceremony have been added to the image library, with additional information below.

Fonda also offered a bit of advice for the roomful of Hollywood celebrities gathered at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood Thursday night: “Ask questions, stay curious,” she exhorted them. “It’s much more important to be interested than to be interesting.” In recounting both Fonda’s career as well as her very protean life, those who gathered to pay her tribute – especially a blue-ribbon acting sorority led by Meryl Streep, Sally Field, Lily Tomlin and Sandra Bullock – certainly made the case that Fonda had been plenty interesting herself. Streep, who made her film debut in a supporting role opposite Fonda in 1977′s Julia, offered one of the evening’s most memorable descriptions, when she recalled her initial impression of the older actress: “She had an almost feral alertness, like this bright blue attentiveness to everything around her.” And she thanked Fonda for showing her the ropes.

Once again, a bunch of movie albums have been re-organized and updated with bigger resolution replacements and additional pictures. For a complete list, click any of the previews below. Enjoy the new additions.
