Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" was not the surprise screening at this year's New York Film Festival, but that didn't stop director Noah Baumbach from making a joke about the forthcoming... blockbuster.

Saint Laurent has had a major Hollywood revival this year, and we're not just talking about the A-listers who wear the fashion house's wares on the red carpet. Since January, two feature films have... been made about French designer Yves Saint Laurent - one biopic premiering just this weekend.
