It began with the black plague. Within weeks, the dead began to rise. Hunting for human flesh. Now, the few that are left have only one way to survive. They must bring the fight to them. This February, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy are going to have to put their life on hold as they battle off a horde of walkers in the exciting thriller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Today, we have the international trailer, which promises we'll see plenty of gore this Valentine's Day. We also get an epic new poster that brings these monster slayers together in fighting style.
Based on the iconic characters created by Jane Austen, this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel puts a unique spin on a literary classic. In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships »
This week is Thanksgiving, pushing us full force into the holiday season. And to celebrate, Adam Sadler is bringing an early present for everyone! No matter what your religion is, you've probably enjoyed listening to his iconic Chanukah Song. Now, he's updated it. And there are some surprising and hilarious new inclusions.
As the title might suggest, this reworked Chanukah Song is the fourth version that Adam Sadler has released over the past 21 years. And as you can see, he's not really into celebrating the catchy holiday theme on its anniversary, instead surprising fans unexpectedly with his revised take on the classic. He opens the new video by gleefully telling those in the audience that he is about to introduce a fourth list of Jewish individuals. Not all of them, whom, mind you, should be celebrated.
Probably the biggest laugh in this new version of the Chanukah Song comes when he mentions Jared from Subway, »
The "Star Wars" prequel trilogy has suffered many a critical attack over the years, a big part of that being due to not only George Lucas' writing but his direction of all three films - the latter taking proven great actors like Ewan McGregor and Natalie Portman and making them deliver performances that are never talked about as their best work.
At one time though, it seems Lucas didn't want to direct the films and spoke with several major directors about the possibility. Out doing promotion for his period whaling drama "In the Heart of the Sea," filmmaker Ron Howard revealed to MTV's Happy Sad Confused podcast that he was one of at least three directors contacted about the possibility:

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.
In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. »

“All those years, living the life of someone I didn’t even know,” mutters Christian Bale’s Rick in the poignant new trailer for Knight of Cups. Acting as Terrence Malick’s seventh directorial effort, the film charts the existential crisis experienced by Bale’s decorated screenwriter who, despite being surrounded by fame and excess, sleepwalks through life in search of a purpose.
Disorienting and visceral, the snippet for Malick’s latest can in many ways be seen as a reflection of the director’s own encounter with Hollywood, with the sombre voiceover and stirring music driving home the rapturous feeling experienced by Bale’s main lead. One thing’s certain: as this is the filmmaker’s first feature since To the Wonder almost four years ago – when Knight of Cups was shot back-to-back – we can readily expect his latest creative effort to draw the crowds.
In keeping with Malick’s M. »

Christian Bale is pondering the ever changing realities in Hollywood in the newly released trailer for his upcoming romantic drama, ‘Knight of Cups.’ The clip follows the Oscar-winning actor as he portrays Rick, a screenwriter who’s being pulled into the sexualized and hard-partying landscape of L.A. The video, which was released by the film’s distributor, Broad Green Pictures, also features the lead character’s introspective narration of his life, which is one of the signature styles of the drama’s writer-director, Terrence Malick. Besides Bale, Malick’s latest drama includes a supporting ensemble cast that features Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Teresa Palmer, Wes Bentley, Joe Manganiello, Nick Offerman, Imogen Poots, Antonio Banderas, Joel [ Read More ]

Last December, just months before its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, the first trailer was released for Knight of Cups, the latest from director Terrence Malick. We haven't heard anything about this mysterious project since then, but today, Broad Green Pictures has released the second trailer, which only features a few brief new shots that weren't included in the first trailer, amounting to roughly 10 seconds of new footage. Unfortunately, these never-before-seen moments don't give us any added insight into this story.
Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick's (Christian Bale) father used to read this story to him as a boy. »
"No one cares about reality anymore." Broad Green Pictures has debuted another new trailer for Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups, his latest feature which premiered at the Berlinale Film Festival earlier this year. It's slated for release next March, and it's another mesmerizing Malick creation this time focusing on the excessive culture of Hollywood by following a screenwriter around. Christian Bale stars, along with quite an impressive cast including Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots and more. I wrote in my review from Berlinale that it's a "gorgeous, mesmerizing, pensive trip into exploring who we are and why we act the way we do." There's still a few months until this opens, but worth the wait. Here's the new trailer (#2) for Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups, direct from YouTube: A screenwriter living in La tries to make sense of the strange events occurring around him. Knight of Cups »

Christian Bale finds himself in only the most strange ways in the visually stunning trailer for the upcoming coming-of-age film Knight of Cups. He gets down on all fours as a woman guides him by a leash at a wild Hollywood party, he engages in a "love experience" chasing a woman around an apartment, he submerges and suspends himself in water, he even hugs Brian Dennehy. In voiceover, the actor pontificates, "All those years, living the life of someone I didn't even know."

With an ensemble cast headed by Christian Bale and supported by Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman and Imogen Poots, "Knight of Cups" centers around a screenwriter and his spiraling odyssey in the sexualized, hard-partying and urban landscape of Hollywood. The new trailer features the hallmarks of every Malick picture — introspective narration and exhilarating camera work by Dp Emmanuel Lubezki — though a change in setting and subject matter (his last films have been rural-set explorations of love) looks like it should revitalize the director's trademark »

Director Terrence Malick (To the Wonder, Tree of Life) is known for making polarizing works of art that feature his (always good-looking) actors in beautiful or interesting settings, and the elements for Knight of Cups are Christian Bale as Rick and an excessive Hollywood backdrop. From the trailer, we can tell that his character is probably on some sort of journey searching for self and love, which a couple of his potential love interests (Natalie Portman, Imogen Poots, Cate Blanchett) remark on during the dreamy but intense preview. Given Malick's penchant for nonlinear, experimental storytelling, this mysterious trailer may actually be pretty telling. The long-in-production Knight of Cups will premiere in theaters on March 4, and you can get your first look now. »

Well, still no word of his untitled Austin music scene movie, or his documentary "Voyage Of Time," but Terrence Malick's "Knight Of Cups" is finally coming stateside after premiering earlier this year at the Berlin Film Festival. And now, a new U.S. trailer has landed. Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, and Natalie Portman are the leads in this movie (which yes, features appearances by many more familiar faces) about existential woes, but this time, it's set against the hedonistic backdrop of Hollywood. The final result isn't quite as majestic as Malick's best works, with Jessica Kiang writing, "the film was for me, just limbo: neither here nor there, neither great nor terrible, just an eternal dance of recollections in which nothing is answered, nothing concludes, and no one grows anything but older and more aware of the impossibility of holding on to all the fragments of time they rented throughout their lives. »

Count Natalie Portman’s turn in “Léon: The Professional” as one of the greatest young breakout performances in Hollywood history. Co-starring Jean Reno and Gary Oldman, the 1994 drama featured Portman in her feature film debut as Mathilda, a troubled girl who becomes the unlikely apprentice of a hitman (Reno) following the murder of her family. Intense and preternaturally focused, the actor gave the kind of wise-beyond-her-years performance that assured a prosperous film career; her Oscar win 16 years later for “Black Swan” was an inevitability. In her audition for writer-director Luc Besson, we catch glimpses of Portman’s budding skill. She can pull off nonchalance while maintaining naiveté, and something about the way she answers a question about seeing animals—a pause, then, “Dogs...all my life”—hints at some deeper mystery to her take on the character. Plus, is there anything more captivating than Portman’s sly smile? Child actors »
Following the first trailer and poster released last month, Sony Pictures has unveiled the second poster for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, set to hit theaters nationwide on February 5, 2016. Stars Lily James and Sam Riley are seen on this new one-sheet, both brandishing swords, preparing themselves for the zombie onslaught as the dead rise around them. Based on the iconic characters created by Jane Austen, this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel puts a unique spin on a literary classic.
In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, »
Paris — As France emerges from its third day of national mourning following Friday’s tragic attacks, the city’s theaters have all reopened, while film execs deliver homages and weigh in on film releases and festivities.
Although France President Francois Hollande has not yet raised the State of Emergency, the country’s biggest theater chain, the Gaumont-Pathe circuit, has reopened. However, many releases, notably Natalie Portman starrer “Jane Got a Gun,” have been delayed.
“Jane Got a Gun,” which was supposed to be released on Wednesday by Mars Distribution, has been postponed until early 2016, per the company’s boss Stephane Celerier. This week’s film premieres have also been canceled, including Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies,” Nanni Moretti’s “My Mother,” Universal’s “Steve Jobs” and StudioCanal’s Tom-Hardy starrer “Legend.”

The French release of Natalie Portman’s Jane Got a Gun has been pushed back following Friday’s terror attacks in Paris, representatives for the film told THR on Monday. The beleaguered film, which has had several release date changes in the U.S., had been scheduled to open in France next Wednesday, Nov. 25, well ahead of its U.S. premiere. It had been picked up for the U.S. by The Weinstein Company after Relativity filed for bankruptcy. Following the attacks on Friday, Portman and the film’s team called off press events and the film’s French premiere that had been

Most Paris cinemas were due to reopen their doors on Monday in the aftermath of terror attacks on the French capital that killed at least 132 people and left 350 injured, 99 severely.
In a campaign to mark France’s three days of national mourning, which entered its final day on Monday, the National Federation for French Cinemas (Fncf) announced it was making available a silent, seven-minute Dcp showing the “Peace for Paris” symbol and suggested cinemas played the clip ahead of screenings.
“Cinema theatres are among the most important places of culture in the heart of the city… Cinema must participate actively in fostering social links and national unity during this moment of mourning and solidarity,” said Fncf president Richard Patry.
The design incorporating the Eiffel Tower into the peace symbol, created by French graphic designer Jean Jullien in the wake of the attacks, has become »
