20 August 2014 9:27 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. There are only two weeks left in August, and the summer movie season has started winding down. With that in mind, it’s time to start looking ahead to what’s coming out in the fall and winter. And this week’s Trailer Trashin’ examines what looks like a very promising November release – Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film Interstellar.

Premise: When a wormhole – which theoretically can connect widely-separated regions of space – is discovered, explorers and scientists unite to embark on a voyage through it, transcending the limits of human space travel. Among the travelers is Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a widowed engineer who decides to leave behind his two children to join the voyage with the goal of saving humanity.

My take: It’s strange to think that it’s been almost ten years since Batman Begins (2005) came out, and British filmmaker Christopher Nolan went from »

Ed Harris Rounds Out Superb ‘Westworld’ Cast as the Guy We Assume is the Yul Brynner Role

12 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

HBO’s Westworld remake has been on a roll when it comes to casting, nailing down Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and James Marsden in the last few weeks. Take a lesson, everyone else in Hollywood: if you’re going to remake something that really has no business being remade, the least you can do for everyone is throw in a few actors that can make it palatable. The latest addition to J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan‘s robo-cowboy epic is better than all those other schmucks combined (no offense, Sir Hopkins, but your role is almost 100% guaranteed to be non-robotic, so we’ve had to dock you a few coolness points). According to Deadline, HBO has snagged Ed Harris for a key role in the series (currently at just the pilot stage), as “The Man in Black.” Another actor was announced via The Wrap at the same time: Ptolemy Slocum, who »

Westworld finds its baddie in the shape of the mighty Ed Harris...

As production looms for the pilot episode of HBO’s televisual Westworld adaptation, the cast continues to grow. When you have to create a whole creepy theme park and fill it with people, a large cast is to be expected.

Last week we brought you the news that Jeffrey Wright (Boardwalk Empire), Rodrigo Santoro (both 300 movies and Dominion), Shannon Woodward (Raising Hope), Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Hercules), Angela Srafyan (The Good Guys) and Simon Quarterman (The Devil Inside) were all joining Anthony Hopkins on the show. Cyclops himself, James Marsden, also joined the ranks yesterday (although Film Divider had revealed his involvement some time ago).

Ed Harris has now been added to the mix, too. The actor, famous for roles in A Beautiful Mind, The Abyss, Apollo 13 and many more, will take on the part of The Man In Black, »
