Comic-Con International announced the Thursday schedule for 2014's San Diego Comic-Con and after a few years of slow movie days to kick off the event, this year looks much more intriguing. Thursday actually features a number of studios that haven't always been regulars at the annual pop culture event. The last time DreamWorks Animation came to Comic-Con was in 2010 when HitFix's own Drew McWeeny moderated a panel for "Megamind" with Will Ferrell, Jonah Hill and Tina Fey. This year they have a full hour in Hall H, but what they are promoting remains to be seen. The Weinstein Company made a rare appearance at the convention in 2012 for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." They return this year with a panel for their summer release "The Giver." Paramount Pictures used to be a mainstay at the convention, but took last year off. They return with a panel with scant details outside of a time and location. »

A bunch of new videos have gone up today starting with the U.S. trailer for what is my own personal favorite film of the year thus far - the British prison drama "Starred Up". After that comes an extended TV spot for the third "The Expendables" opening in a few weeks.
Next up, AskMen has released an exclusive clip from Luc Besson's upcoming action thriller "Lucy" in which Scarlett Johansson has first scored her drug-induced superpowers and escapes custody. There's also the trailer for the direct-to-disc animated movie based on the PlayStation "Heavenly Sword" game franchise.
Then, there's a new music video for Phil Noyce's "The Giver" set to OneRepublic's original song "Ordinary Human" which was created specifically for the movie. Finally comes the U.S. trailer for Terry Gilliam's trippy "Zero Theorem".

The Weinstein Company has offered fans of Lois Lowry's novel The Giver a new look at footage from this adaptation with a music video for OneRepublic's original song "Ordinary Human," which was created specifically for the movie.
Brenton Thwaites stars as Jonas, whose ideal world of conformity is altered forever when he is tasked with meeting The Giver (Jeff Bridges), the one man responsible for the collective memories of his entire community. Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgård, Katie Holmes round out an all-star cast in this young adult adaptation, arriving in theaters nationwide August 15.
The haunting story of The Giver centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community's memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the »
A pop-culture touchstone, a nearly all-purpose metaphor and one of the most beloved sci-fi franchises of the Seventies and beyond, the Planet of the Apes films do what all good what-if fantasies should do: hold up a mirror to humanity and reflect our own conflicts, issues and failings back to us through a wildly outrageous premise. The original 1968 movie mixes satire, social commentary, action and suspense, capped by a first-rate twist at the end. ("Damn you, damn you all to hell!")
Everything we've seen for Phillip Noyce's feature adaptation of Lois Lowry's The Giver points to a couple of noticeable shifts from the source material. The characters' ages are a prime example, as is the emphasis on Odeya Rush's character Fiona, who's seen in the above poster, positioned slightly behind star Brenton Thwaites. Meryl Streep (Chief Elder) and Jeff Bridges (the titular Giver) are pictured as floating heads, shown in black and white as a demonstration of colorless utopia in which these characters exist. The contrast between a monochrome world and a colorful one is also demonstrated in the new stills released for The Giver. In addition to featuring the faces of the four leads, the new poster shows off the promising cast of this adaptation. Along with Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites and Odeya Rush, the cast also includes Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift. »

What a shoddy looking first poster for the The Giver, the scan lines over the monochrome floating heads of Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep are laughable and what exactly am I supposed to take away from the back-to-back stance of stars Brenton Thwaites and Odeya Rush, and what are they looking atc Based on Lois Lowry's novel and directed by Phillip Noyce (Dead Calm), The Giver centers on Jonas (Thwaites), who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment.

Ewan McGregor is to get his gums around an American accent again as he takes the lead in American Pastoral, an adaptation of Philip Roth’s 1997 novel. McGregor will play Seymour “Swede” Levov, a Jewish businessman whose successful career is derailed by the revolutionary activities of his daughter during the Vietnam War. Though a period piece examining the attitudes of the time, the narrative also goes back and forth in recent history, so plenty for the actor and director Philip Noyce (Rabbit-proof Fence) to work with here.
Lakeshore Entertainment are producing, having brought two previous Roth tomes to the screen, The Human Stain with Anthony Hopkins and Nicole Kidman and Elegy with Penelope Cruz and Sir Ben Kingsley. Neither set the box office ablaze, so expect another complex and intelligent effort that will hopefully navigate that tricky path between honouring the book and creating something cinematic. John Romano (The Lincoln Lawyer) is writing the script. »

• The Fault in Our Stars lead Ansel Elgort will play the title role in Van Cliburn. The film tells the story of the Texan piano prodigy who has been credited as bridging the Cold War gap between America and Russia when, at age 23, he won the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow in 1958. Andrew Stern (Disconnect) is penning the script, and Elgort, a graduate of Laguardia High School of the Performing Arts, will perform the piano playing himself. [Deadline]

Australian director Phillip Noyce has been struggling to get his adaptation of American Pastoral off the ground for 11 years and counting. But it seems like at long last he's gearing up for production, having wrangled Ewan McGregor as his leading man. Coming Soon first snagged this curious bit of casting news while speaking with Phillip Noyce about his soon-to-open science-fiction drama The Giver, an adaptation of the Lois Lowry novel. Noyce, who has previously helmed such A-lister-fronted features as Angelina Jolie's Salt, Denzel Washington's The Bone Collector, and Harrison Ford's Clear and Present Danger, confessed that the inability to find the right actor for American Pastoral's lead role has been the main cause of its delays. However, with Ewan McGregor now on board, Noyce expects American Pastoral will roll into production by early 2015. American Pastoral will be based on the noteworthy novel by American author Philip Roth. »
Lakeshore Entertainment has tasked Phillip Noyce to direct, and Ewan McGregor to star in, the film adaptation of Philip Roth's contemporary classic "American Pastoral," which has been in the trunk for over a decade. McGregor would ostensibly play Swede Levov, a postcard-perfect upper Middle American athlete-star turned family man whose life is traced from high school, when he has godlike status-- through the politically tumultuous 1960s and 70s. Roth's beautiful 1997 novel shatters the American dream, and the life of the Levovs, when the Swede's eventual daughter dissents from his authority, and the nation's, in a violent act of terrorism. Intercut with fragments of the Swede's life are dispatches from Rothian alter ego Nathan Zuckerman, who encounters the grown-up Levov at a high school reunion in the mid-90s. Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will produce this adaptation of the arguably unfilmable Pulitzer Prize winner. Anyone who has read a Philip Roth novel knows that. »

In Lois Lowry’s 1993 book The Giver, we meet Jonas’ best friend Asher. In their highly controlled world, his energy, tardiness, and carelessness with words often results in disciplinary measures. He’s important in illustrating the different ways the restrictive society affects various personalities, but he is very much a side character.
In the Phillip Noyce-directed adaptation of The Giver (out Aug. 15), however, besides being aged along with the other main characters, actor Cameron Monaghan says, his character “has definitely been expanded.”
“At the start of the story he’s a little bit of a clown. He’s a »
