A new international poster has debuted for the long-troubled western Jane Got A Gun, which you can view below:
Soon to be released after an almost three-year production history, Jane Got A Gun stars Oscar Winner Natalie Portman (Black Swan) in the title role as “a woman who asks her ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him.”
After it’s production and distribution troubles, The Weinstein Company are now behind the film’s release, which is soon to debut in some international territories.
Jane Got A Gun opens in France on November 25th, and is set for a Us release in February with Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) directing the film after original helmer Lynne Ramsey (We Need To Talk About Kevin) left the film the day before filming was due to start. The film also features Joel Edgerton (The Gift »

One would look far and wide to find a modern production that fell foul to numerous pitfalls in the manner of Jane Got a Gun. For the longest time, it seemed the troubled Western would never find its way out of development hell, with actor changeovers and the exit of director Lynne Ramsay at the 11th hour threatening to clip the film’s wings before it began in earnest; still, we’ve arrived at a point in time when the bandit thriller is finally nearing a release date, and The Weinstein Company has debuted a brand new poster to prove it.
Placing star Natalie Portman front and center as the titular heroine, the international one-sheet is a stylish, sun-kissed tease of what’s to come from the thriller. Supplanting Ramsay in the director’s chair (was she really in it in the first place?) is Warrior‘s Gavin O’Connor, »

On the heels of its 20th anniversary, Trainspotting is getting a sequel. Director Danny Boyle confirmed that the project is moving forward and all three of the film’s original stars – Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, and Jonny Lee Miller – are coming back.
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Boyle confirmed they are aiming for a May/June shoot with a release in late 2016. The symmetry would be nice since 2016 will be the film’s 20th anniversary. While the confirmation is likely good news for most fans, Boyle admitted that the original cast had some trepidations about doing a sequel.
“The actors were understandably worried about its reputation and not wanting to let people down or to just be cashing in,” he said.
McGregor was one who had been on record stating he had no desire to revisit the film. His attitude apparently changed and earlier this summer at the Edinburgh Film Festival, »

Trainspotting 2: Danny Boyle has confirmed that the Trainspotting sequel is really going to happen, so long as everything goes according to plan, with shooting set for next May/June. Boyle says it will be another very tight production given the schedules of Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle in particular and that this sequel won't be named after nor does it have anything to do with Irvine Welsh's sequel to her own book, which is titled Porno. [THR] Playmobil: Robbers, Thieves & Rebels: France's On Animation Studios (The Little Prince) is aiming for The Lego Movie level success with their own movie based on an iconic toy line. They've teamed up with Cross Creek Pictures (Black Mass) for an animated feature based...

Lionsgate U.K.’s increasing focus on investing in British movies to fill a major part of its distribution slate, alongside third-party acquisitions and titles from Lionsgate and Summit in the U.S., makes commercial sense, says Nick Manzi, head of production and acquisitions at Lionsgate U.K.
“There is an audience in this country for British films,” he says. “Every country wants to see stories about themselves, and we are lucky because we share the same language as America, so these films can travel — if you get them right.”
The aim is to give a wide release to the majority of its movies. “We look for stories that resonate with a broad audience,” he says. But Manzi warns that the distribution market has changed. “We are finding that there’s no in-between — there’s no middle ground. Films either work or they don’t.”

It's been 19 years since Danny Boyle introduced movie audiences to characters like Mark Renton, Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie. There's been talk of a sequel damn near ever since we first saw Ewan McGregor climb his way out of that nasty, nasty toilet, and though it is still moving forward, Trainspotting 2 is doing so with one significant change: the title. Danny Boyle talked to Coming Soon about his latest movie, the biopic Steve Jobs which has been gathering lots of awards buzz, and revealed that the Trainspotting sequel, based on Irvine Welsh's novel Porno, will wind up being called something else. The reason should be readily apparent. Talking about a potential new titled, the director jokingly said: No, we're going to try and call it 'T2' but there might be some issues there with James Cameron. I'll have to beg and we'll have to »
Next year serves as the twentieth anniversary of director Danny Boyle's breakout film "Trainspotting". For years there's been talk of a sequel, and now Boyle seems to finally have a timeframe in place.
In a new interview with Coming Soon today for the upcoming "Steve Jobs" film which he also directed, Boyle confirmed reports the other week that "Trainspotting 2" will be his next film. Now, he has dates set out:
"It's May and June next year we shoot and we've got a terrific script. We've got the four main actors all eager and willing to do it. I'm very happy because my only (concern) was that the script would be good for two of them and not so great for the other two, and they'd feel obliged to come back but they've all got good stuff, and it's a very interesting look at them again. Hopefully, we can get »

The film could even be released as early as 2016 should everything go smoothly and all the actors' schedules align.
"They only get this little window off, so either you wait for the contract to run down, which could be as late as three years, or you kind of try and do it in this window," he told The Hollywood Reporter.
"The actors were understandably worried about its reputation and not wanting to let people down or to just be cashing in.
"So actually the script, which John [Hodge] has written, has been put under a very fierce spotlight by everyone, and it's a good one."
The follow-up is to be based »
Speaking to ComingSoon.net, Boyle said:
“It’s May and June next year we shoot and we’ve got a terrific script,”
“We’ve got the four main actors all eager and willing to do it. I’m very happy because my only (concern) was that the script would be good for two of them and not so great for the other two, and they’d feel obliged to come back, but they’ve all got good stuff, and it’s a very interesting look at them again. Hopefully, we can get it finished in time to release it in 2016 which is the 20th Anniversary year, so yes, we’re on it, and it’s looking good.”
So, obviously the four main actors weren’t specifically mentioned, »

Danny Boyle's new film, Steve Jobs, doesn't make it until the UK until November, although it begins its Us roll-out early next month. The film, which stars Michael Fassbender as the co-founder of Apple, is already attracting awards attention. Fassbender, for either Steve Jobs or Macbeth, is expected to be collecting a fair few gongs in the months ahead.
Trainspotting 2 will be the director's new film, as he suggested earlier in the year. And in a new interview with Coming Soon, Boyle has confirmed that "it's May and June next year we shoot and we've got a terrific script. We've got the four main actors all eager and willing to do it".
"I'm very happy", he added, noting that »
Next year marks the 20th Anniversary of director Danny Boyle's breakout hit Trainspotting, and if all goes according to plan, fans may be able to celebrate that beloved film with the release of Trainspotting 2. Danny Boyle revealed earlier this month that the sequel will in fact be his next film, but today, during a new interview, the filmmaker revealed that he plans to start production next summer, and that he plans to release the follow-up later that year. Here's what the filmmaker had to say below.
"It's May and June next year we shoot and we've got a terrific script. We've got the four main actors all eager and willing to do it.

We’ve heard rumours in the past that Ewan McGregor would be coming back to the Star Wars Universe for a trilogy of movies based around his turn as Obi-Wan Kenobi, but a new rumour has surfaced that another Prequel Trilogy star is coming back to the fold.
According to Making Star Wars (who are usually on the money with their scoops), Hayden Christensen is going back into training and the UK team of Star Wars: Episode VIII is flying out to the Us to film scenes with him.
“This is a rumor I raise an eyebrow at incredulously. The rumor as I was told it: A team in the U.K. are soon heading to the U.S. to begin training Hayden Christensen for a Star Wars: Episode VIII appearance of some sort.”
So it should be noted here that even Making Star Wars are a bit skeptical about this rumour, »

Long-delayed Western Jane Got a Gun looks like it has finally secured distribution, having been saved by The Weinstein Company after original distributor Relativity Media filed for bankruptcy earlier this summer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Natalie Portman is one of the co-producers of the film, as well as the star, and has had to work hard with her fellow producers to keep it from falling apart over the last past years, which has been through the Hollywood mire.
Shot in 2013, the film was originally set to star Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs), but he dropped out after problems with original director Lynne Ramsey (We Need To Talk About Kevin). Jude Law (Spy) replaced him, only to leave himself after Ramsey dropped out. Bradley Cooper (Joy) was also attached at one point, but he left due to scheduling conflicts.

Next year, two live action films arrive from Disney that have roots somewhere in its animated movies. The loosest linked is Alice Through The Looking Glass, the follow up to 2010’s Alice In Wonderland movie (James Bobin has taken on the director's chair this time, instead of Tim Burton). Then there’s Pete’s Dragon, which is turning up late summer.
And then in 2017, there’s the small matter of Beauty And The Beast. The live action take on one of Disney’s best animated films is in post-production now, with director Bill Condon in the edit suite putting his film together. Not much imagery from the film has turned up online so far, but the first glimpse of the redesigned beast has come in the form of a crew T-shirt, »
Gavin O'Connor's "Jane Got a Gun," produced by and starring Natalie Portman, has had a hell of a time getting off the ground. After Lynne Ramsay flew the coop last year, the film went to director O'Connor, underwent a musical chairs of talent before wrapping, then was shoved off Relativity's 2015 slate after the company filed Chapter 11. It was inevitable the troubled western wouldn't make its September 4, 2015 release date, a placeholder if ever there was one. Now, The Weinstein Company has sealed a deal to release the film in Europe this November, and the Us next February, anticipating a heavy marketing push abroad. No awards-qualifying run this time around, though that was less-than-expected after the rigmarole the film has suffered, from lawsuits to scuttled actors, including Jude Law, who was replaced by Bradley Cooper, who then was replaced by Ewan McGregor. Was it worth the pain? We'll know once TWC, »

Filmed in 2013, and then shuffled around a variety of release dates including summer 2014, February 2015, and September 4th of this year, the troubled western "Jane Got A Gun" hit yet another speed bump when Relativity went belly up. Directed by Lynne Ramsay — who was replaced by Gavin O'Connor just as cameras started to roll — the movie has now found a new home and release date, and fingers crossed this one will stick. The Weinstein Company have snatched up the movie, and pegged it for a February 2016 release, which will be a few months after it rolls out in Europe in November. Starring Natalie Portman, Joel Edgerton, Ewan McGregor, Noah Emmerich, Rodrigo Santoro, and Boyd Holbrook, the story centers on a woman (Portman) who asks her ex-lover (Edgerton) for help in order to save her outlaw husband (Emmerich) from a gang out to kill him.

While one former Relativity film found new life Wednesday with a distribution deal with the Weinstein Company, another is continuing to fight in bankruptcy court for its freedom from the bankrupt studio.
The Weinstein Co. announced it would release the Natalie Portman Western “Jane Got a Gun” in the U.S. next February, after the film was pulled away from Relativity just before the company’s July 30 bankruptcy filing. But Im Global didn’t escape so easily and filed papers in U.S. Bankruptcy Court Wednesday saying that it should be freed from a previous distribution deal with Relativity so that it can find a new partner to release the thriller “Collide.”
Relativity has filed papers in the bankruptcy that would allow it to transfer contracts and leases to the winner of bidding for the bankrupt company in an auction set for Oct. 1. Dozens of producers and other partners are listed in the papers. »

Ahead of the film's world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival tonight, Emma Watson debuted the first trailer for Colonia on her Facebook page earlier today. The film doesn't have domestic distribution lined up at this time, but that could change after its world premiere screening tonight at Tiff. A chilling historical thriller, set in Chile in 1973, Colonia stars Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl as lovers caught in the crossfire of a murderous military coup - and eventually interned in a dangerous cult's compound from which there seems to be no escape.
Lufthansa flight attendant Lena (Emma Watson) is in Santiago to visit her boyfriend, Daniel (Daniel Bruhl), a talented graphic artist creating images in support of embattled President Salvador Allende. When Allende is violently ousted, General Augusto Pinochet's forces begin rounding up dissidents. Daniel is taken to the remote stronghold of Colonia Dignidad ("Dignity Colony"), home »
