First International Poster Lands For Gillian Flynn’s Dark Places Adaptation

2 March 2015 2:58 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Before David Fincher’s Gone Girl even hit theaters, producers were scrambling to option other material from its author. Gillian Flynn might have published only three novels, but they’re each as deliciously twisted as the last. Whereas Gone Girl investigated the ruptured center of an insane marriage, Dark Places explores the dark beating heart of a misguided youngster. To mark the film’s imminent worldwide premiere in France, the first poster has arrived, which you can see in all its glory – along with the synopsis – below.

The adaptation bagged Sarah’s Key helmer Gilles Paquet-Brenner to direct and an impressive cast to star. Charlize Theron toplines the movie as Libby Day, a woman who witnesses the horrific ritualistic murder of her family as a teenager and testifies against her brother for the killings. Twenty-five years later, a group of over-zealous serial killer enthusiasts try to convince her that her brother was in fact, »

David Fincher scored a hit with its Gillian Flynn adaptation Gone Girl last year, and director Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key) will be hoping to repeat the feat by bringing the author’s 2009 novel Dark Places to the screen with Charlize Theron in the lead role. A first international poster has arrived online for the film, and you can check it out here…

First International Poster For 'Gone Girl' Author Gillian Flynn's 'Dark Places' Starring Charlize Theron

2 March 2015 10:51 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last fall, audiences were captivated by the outrageous adventures of Amazing Amy in David Fincher's "Gone Girl," so much so that it appears many forgot about another Gillian Flynn adaptation that has been in the can for a while now: namely"Dark Places," starring Charlize Theron. While you might think an A-list leading, big screen take on a best-seller from a hotly buzzed author might warrant a bigger campaign, the movie is getting ready to open overseas in just over a month, and the first international poster has arrived. Corey StollTye SheridanChloe Grace MoretzNicholas HoultSterling Jerins and Christina Hendricks co-star in the movie that follows Libby Day (Theron), who as a teenager witnesses the murder of her family and testifies against her brother when he is tried for the crime. 25 years later, Libby is brought before the secretive, crime-solving Kill Club which wants to uncover the truth. »

First Poster for New Gillian Flynn Adaptation 'Dark Places' Starring Charlize Theron

2 March 2015 10:27 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Gillian Flynn's name is no longer just a name on the list of New York Times best selling authors, she is now a name that generates feature film interest thanks to her work with David Fincher, adapting her very own Gone Girl for the screen and next up is Dark Places, an adaptation of her 2009 novel with Charlize Theron starring. The film was directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah's Key) who also adapted the novel for the screen, centering on a woman (Theron) who survived the brutal killing of her family as a child is forced to confront the events of that day by a secret society obsessed with solving notorious crimes. Christina Hendricks, Chloe Moretz, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Drea de Matteo and Corey Stoll co-star. No word on a domestic release date, though it has had an MPAA rating since last May. That really doesn't bode too well for the film's quality, »

Smith to Have One of His Worst Domestic Openings Ever: 'Focus'

1 March 2015 1:58 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after »

Adding Possible 2016 Oscar Contenders in 'Trumbo', 'Splash', 'Grind' and 'Face'

27 February 2015 3:15 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I know, I know... it's early in the year and the Oscars just ended and Oh my God what are you doingc Yet, the wheels keep turning and I like to be ahead of the game rather than playing catch up at the end of the year so I'm trying to make sure the database is locked and loaded for Oscar 2016 and I just got done adding a few contenders, contenders such as... Luca Guadagnino's A Bigger Splash, which Fox Searchlight just acquired for distribution starring Matthias Schoenaerts, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson and Aurore Clement. The pic centers on a high profile couple, a famous rock star and a filmmaker (Schoenaerts and Swinton), vacationing and recovering on the idyllic sun-drenched and remote Italian island of Pantelleria are disrupted by the unexpected visit of an old friend and his daughter (Fiennes and Johnson) - creating a whirlwind of jealousy, »

First look at Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne as a transgender artist in The Danish Girl

27 February 2015 11:52 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

There’s no rest for an Oscar winner.

Less than a week after taking home the Best Actor trophy at Sunday’s Academy Awards for his role in The Theory of EverythingEddie Redmayne is back on set of The Danish Girl, looking very un-like himself.

Redmayne stars as Danish-born Einar Wegener, one of the very person people known to have undergone gender reassignment surgery.  Born male, Wegener travelled to Germany and began gender surgery to become the artist known as Lili Elbe as early as 1930.  But the film looks at more than just Wegener’s transformation to that of a woman- it is a story of his marriage to Gerda (played by Alicia Vikander) in an intimate look at what it means to have the person you love desperately seek a dramatic change.

Redmayne seems poised to earn his second Best Actor nod with his role in the film »

Another Oscar? Eddie Redmayne Plays A Transgender Icon In The Danish Girl Image

27 February 2015 11:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Keaton should just take the year off. No matter how good the Birdman star is in this fall’s Boston Globe drama Spotlight, next year’s Best Actor Oscar could quite possibly be Eddie Redmayne’s for the taking once again. The first image from Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl, which stars the Theory of Everything actor (who last partnered with Hooper on Les Misérables) as a transgender pioneer, has surfaced online, finding Redmayne looking radiant as always.

Redmayne stars in the pic as Einer Wegener, who would later rename herself Lili Elbe, one of the first men to undergo a sex reassignment surgery. Adapting David Ebershoff’s novel, The Danish Girl specifically looks at the complicated relationship between Elbe and her wife Greta (Alicia Vikander), who became a famed artist for painting Elbe in drag.

The project has been a hot commodity for years, with such respected »

First Picture of Eddie Redmayne in 'The Danish Girl'

27 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Eddie Redmayne has what may be the first of many Oscars on his mantle after winning the statue for his performance in The Theory of Everything, but only time will tell if this will become a trend for the young actor. Then again, it looks like he is already primed for at least another nomination as he stars in The Danish Girl for Oscar winning director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) and just above is the first picture of the actor in character. Redmayne takes on the role of Einar Wegener, a Danish artist who became the first ever sex-change patient. The film tells of Einar and Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander) and how their marriage took a sharp left turn after Einar stood in for a female model that Gerda was set to paint. This film has seen plenty of changes over the years with Tomas Alfredson (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, »
