Fox Searchlight has released a batch of new high-resolution images from director Zal Batmanglij’s (Sound of My Voice) eco-terrorist thriller The East. Brit Marling co-wrote the script with Batmanglij and stars as an undercover operative for an elite private intelligence firm who infiltrates a domestic terrorist organization in order to protect her corporate clientele. Once she starts living as part of the anarchist collective, though, she finds that her loyalties aren’t as solid as she believed them to be. I caught the film at Sundance and it’s a very solid thriller that poses some fascinating questions that don’t exactly have easy answers. It has a lot to say about the world we live in, but the film still manages to work very effectively as commercial entertainment, as evidenced by the most recent trailer.

As critics swoon over the British star's timbre and tone, it is clear that a great voice is still essential for any great movie actor
This week, Benedict Cumberbatch has been basking in praise for his portrayal of the villain, John Harrison, in Jj Abrams' new film, Star Trek Into Darkness – more particularly, his voice has been drawing raves.
"So sepulchrally resonant that it could have been synthesised from the combined timbres of Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart and Alan Rickman holding an elocution contest down a well," sighed The Independent's Jonathan Romney. "The deep-voiced Cumberbatch asserts fully self-justified treachery", asserted The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy. In The New Yorker, Anthony Lane launched a career-overview of Cumberbatch's "honeyed mellifluous voice", concluding: "The timbre remains in Abrams film." The Daily Mirror judged its readers so in need of a top-up of Cumberbatch's Burtonesque baritone, it linked to a video in which »

While this summer will see big films like "Pacific Rim," "Elyisum" and “Man Of Steel” stomping their way into theaters. they’ll be brushing elbows with indies like the latest film from Sundance darlings Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the thriller “The East.” And Fox Searchlight has released a new clip alongside two new TV spots. Co-written by Marling and Batmanglij, the thriller follows Marling as a private intelligence firm operative who infiltrates an anarchist organization led by Alexander Skarsgard and begins to question her ideals. The clip focuses on Marling changing her appearance in the lead up to her undercover assignment alongside a speech made by Patricia Clarkson to potential clients. Lean and mean, this looks like a no-frills thriller in the vein of Paul Greengrass’ work on the 'Bourne' films. Next up are two effective, if a bit disorientating, TV spots that do a nice job of drawing you in without. »

When it comes to nurturing the next generation of New York filmmakers, Marcie Bloom believes in the personal touch.
The former co-president of Sony Pictures Classics launched her own mentoring program, the Marcie Bloom Fellowship in Film, in 2007. It admits just four aspiring filmmakers a year, who meet once a month in her Upper West Side apartment.
The chosen few, typically college seniors or grad students, mingle and bond with guest speakers from the cream of Gotham’s indie community, in an atmosphere that’s as much social as professional.
“It’s a networking service,” Bloom explains. “We bring our fellows into contact with people that they wouldn’t otherwise get the chance to meet, and certainly not in such a casual and intimate way.”
Bloom hosts the salons at her home for a simple reason — she’s been wheelchair-bound since a brain hemorrhage in 1996 left her partially paralyzed. The »

And it seems to be a theme that fascinates them as their latest collaboration in the upcoming thriller "The East" also dives into similar territory. Marling leads the the film as former FBI agent Sarah Moss who takes up a job at an elite private intelligence firm headed up by Sharon (Patricia Clarkson). Sarah is assigned to go deep undercover to infiltrate the Anonymous-esque anarchist collective The East, who target major corporations guilty of criminal, moral and ethical crimes.

Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling team up for the second time in the espionage thriller "The East," which stars Marling, Ellen Page, Patricia Clarkson and Alexander Skarsgard. The pair previously collaborated on the screenplay for Batmanglij's debut film "Sound of My Voice," in which Marling also starred as a bewitching cult leader. Fox Searchlight picked up that film (along with Marling's "Another Earth") and also backed "The East." This time around, Marling plays an elite intelligence operative who goes undercover to blow the whistle on a group of anarchists. But like the undercover journalist in "Sound of My Voice," her character becomes increasingly entwined in a world whose dogma contradicts her own. Critics at Sundance 2013 were divided about the film, which premiered at the festival and later closed SXSW (read The Playlist's review). Watch the new trailer below. »

A solid new trailer has been released for the eco terrorist spy thriller The East, which I think some of you will want to see. I saw it up at Sundance earlier this year. I thought it was really well made and intense film. It was one of the few movies I saw at the festival that got a standing ovation at the end. You can read my review for the film here. Here's the synopsis:
In The East, Sarah Moss (Marling) is a brilliant operative for an elite private intelligence firm whose top objective is to ruthlessly protect the interests of their A-list corporate clientele. She is assigned to go undercover to infiltrate an anarchist collective known for executing covert attacks upon major corporations.
