Time to play the name game, kids, though it will not be nearly as entertaining as it was during "American Horror Story: Asylum." Eliza Graves has gotten itself a new title, Stoneheart Asylum. Look for it via Millennium Films on October 24th.
The film is loosely based on one of Edgar Allan Poe’s early works, an 1845 short story titled "The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether." It's written by Joe Gangemi and directed by Brad Anderson (Session 9, The Call, "Almost Human").
The cast includes Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess, Ben Kingsley, Michael Caine, Brendan Gleeson, David Thewlis, Jason Flemyng, and Sinéad Cusack. Producers are Bruce Davey, Mel Gibson, and Mark Amin with David Higgins, Christa Campbell, Cami Winikoff, Mark Gill, and Lati Grobman executive producing.

The phrase “the inmates are running the asylum” usually isn’t meant in the literal sense, but in an upcoming film based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe, it could be accurate. Previously known as Eliza Graves and boasting a cast that includes Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley, Millennium Entertainment’s Stonehearst Asylum has received a new release date that perfectly fits its chilling premise.
Stonehearst Asylum, based on Edgar Allan Poe’s The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether, is now slated for an October 24th release, just in time for Halloween. Here’s the synopsis:
“A new doctor comes to apprentice at a mental institution and meets a beautiful patient that he falls in love with amidst a set of circumstances which may be more complicated and dangerous than they seem.”

James Marsh's The Theory of Everything starring Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking will have its world premiere at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival and today a few first look pictures from the film have come available. Co-starring Felicity Jones, David Thewlis and Emily Watson, the film explores the excitement of the 1960s for Hawking as he studies at Cambridge University. At the dawn of a brilliant life's work, he falls passionately in love with arts student Jane Wilde. Their relationship leads him through personal and scientific challenges and breakthroughs, and as his world opens up he opens up the entire world to new ways of seeing. Jane's memoir "Traveling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen" inspired the film with a screenplay by Anthony McCarten. Focus will release the film in theaters on November 7.

Several new posters have been released recently and I'll begin with the above banner for David Ayer's Fury (click for full size), which clearly has the makings of three separate posters so I separated them and offer larger looks directly below. Featured front and center is obviously Brad Pitt as Wardaddy, leader of the World War II tank crew and he's joined here by Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Josh Bernthal and Shia Labeouf. Fury is set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany. The film hits theaters on November 14, check out the individual posters below. »

The Zero Theorem, 2013.
Directed by Terry Gilliam.
A computer hacker whose goal is to discover the reason for human existence continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management; namely, they send a teenager and lusty love interest to distract him.
Terry Gilliam’s career as director has produced a filmography of varied result, from the highs of a modern classic like Brazil to total misfires in the shape of The Brothers Grimm and Tideland, but one thing has always been guaranteed; he has a unique sense for storytelling and an eye for visuals unlike anyone else. As such, The Zero Theorem is everything we could want from a Terry Gilliam film and much more; it’s one the year’s best films.
The story is a familiar one but has that likable Gilliam lead (think Jonathan Pryce, »

To mark the release of The Zero Theorem on 21st July, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray
From visionary director Terry Gilliam (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), The Zero Theorem stars two-time Academy Award®winner* Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds) as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management aimed at discovering the meaning of life – or the lack thereof – once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Joby (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom, it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that »
This will be my third year attending the venerable Fantasia International Film Festival here in Montreal, and this year’s slate does not disappoint. I was asked to pick the five movies I was the most excited to see. This proved to be a difficult task, seeing as how my original list had upwards of thirty titles. But here are the five that have got me the most intrigued.
Directed by Terry Gilliam
Even though this movie has been finished for a while and already released in certain territories around the world, there’s a sense that a new Terry Gilliam movie is some form of minor miracle. Stories of Gilliam’s distended budgets, lost projects, and squabbles with producers lend the director a kind of bizarre mystique. But by all accounts, this was the easiest time Gilliam had making a movie in a while. »

You can just feel the wheels in motion for the fall and the fall film festival season. While some of these films do not have U.S. release dates yet, many have openings just around the corner and many are already receiving international releases. And so we’ve collected a few new posters that have landed for a quartet of films that have already premiered elsewhere earlier this year, and will likely drop into theaters or festivals in the next six months. Let’s start with the earliest film, Terry Gilliam’s “The Zero Theorem.” It debuted way back at the 2013 at the Venice Film Festival (our review here). It stars Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, Lucas Hedges Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis and Matt Damon, and it’s about an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst in a dystopian future age, perhaps not unlike Gilliam’s “Brazil” but much more technologically advanced. »

"...'Qohen Leth' is a reclusive computer genius working on a formula to determine whether life holds any meaning, in this dystopian satire. He waits for a phone call explaining the meaning of life.
"Under instruction of a shadowy figure known only as 'Management', Qohen works to solve the 'Zero Theorem' a mathematical formula derived from 'Big Crunch' theory.
"Qohen works in the chapel that is his home, interrupted by visits from a seductress and the teenage son of Management..."

Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem, which stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen, an eccentric and reclusive computer hacker who is “plagued with existential angst,” will finally arrive in the United States in limited theatrical release in September. This week, a new U.S. trailer debuted online.
As the trailer indicates, Qohen spends most of his time in isolation; that’s because he’s hard at work on a mysterious project assigned to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at finding the meaning of life (or lack thereof). Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, and Tilda Swinton also star.

Terry Gilliam's "Orwellian triptych" is going out with a bang. 29 years after "Brazil" and 19 years after "12 Monkeys," the acclaimed director is returning to paranoid form with "The Zero Theorem," a dystopian sci-fi starring two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz as a reclusive computer genius attempting to unlock the meaning of life. Now a new trailer for the film has arrived, and based on the collection of colorful, slightly off-kilter images on display it appears the comparisons to Gilliam's two earlier sci-fi classics are well-founded. Also starring Melanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Lucas Hedges, Tilda Swinton, Matt Damon and Ben Whishaw, "The Zero Theorem" divided critics when it premiered at last year's Venice Film Festival (read Guy Lodge's review here), with Waltz's performance singled out by many as one of the film's highlights. It's slated to hit U.S. screens on September 19. Check out the trailer above, then let us know »

It’s director Terry Gilliam’s first film since The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus in 2009, and that one was barely released. His newest, The Zero Theorem, looks like vintage Gilliam with its eye-popping design and strange humor. Will Gilliam’s tale of a computer programmer in a dystopian futureworld city be his first hit since 12 Monkeys? That remains to be seen and while he didn’t cast any of his fellow Monty Python alums this time, any movie featuring Christoph Waltz, Matt Damon, and Tilda Swinton certainly has potential.
Check out the new trailer for The Zero Theorem:

Say what you will about how successful Terry Gilliam's movies are or aren't, no one makes movies that look like Terry Gilliam's and the new trailer for Zero Theorem shows that Gilliam is still in fine visual form. The trailer promises a movie where a computer genius (Christoph Waltz and his X-Box controller) is tasked with discovering the reason for human existence via the zero theorem, which states that everything adds up to nothing. I know Terry Gilliam's mind-bending movies aren't for everyone, but I'm pretty excited for this one. Despite the surreal tone, the movie looks to be pretty loaded with social commentary on how every-day life and work distracts us from asking the big questions. Zero Theorem is directed by Terry Gilliam (12 Monkeys, Brazil, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), written by Pat Rushin and stars Christoph Waltz, Melanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Matt Damon, Ben Whishaw, »

Ahead of its U.S. release, a new trailer has arrived online for The Zero Theorem, the latest film from Terry Gilliam (Brazil, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), and you can check it out below after the official synopsis…
Qohen Leth (Christoph Waltz) is an eccentric and reclusive computer genius who lives in an Orwellian corporate world and suffers from existential angst. Under the instruction of a shadowy figure known only as “Management”, Qohen works to solve the “Zero Theorem” – a mathematical formula which will finally determine whether life has any meaning. Qohen’s work in the burnt-out chapel that serves as his home is interrupted by visits from Bainsley, a seductive woman, and Bob, the teenage son of Management.
The Zero Theorem sees Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) leading the cast alongside Melanie Thierry (Babylon A.D.), David Thewlis (Harry Potter), Matt Damon (Elysium), Tilda Swinton (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Peter Stormare »
