At Cannes, Magnolia acquired the promising sounding horror western, Bone Tomahawk. The film has a fantastic cast that includes Kurt Russell, Peter Sarsgaard, Timothy Olyphant and Jennifer Carpenter. S. Craig Zahler will direct the movie, which has the following synopsis:
“Bone Tomahawk” follows an outlaw who unknowingly leads a band of cannibalistic Troglodytes into the peaceful western town of Bright Hope. When the monsters kidnap several settlers, including a rancher’s wife, a small rescue party consisting of the injured rancher, the sheriff, his aging deputy and a strong-willed gunslinger, journey into hell to try and rescue them. They soon find themselves in dark unknown territories where savage inbreeds armed with the ultimate weapon leave no hope of survival.
Production begins in August. »

Written and directed by Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris), the film stars Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Louis C.K., Bobby Cannavale, Andrew Dice Clay, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg.
Blue Jasmine tells the story of the life of a fashionable New York housewife (Blanchett) amidst an acute crisis.
The poster, which bears a lot of resemblance to those that have been used to promote Allen’s other films, lands around four months before the film is expected to hit UK cinemas, and can be viewed below.

Woody Allen appears to be firing them out from every direction at the moment, sorry if that’s too visual, but after the wonderful Midnight In Paris and To Rome With Love, we’ve now got the first poster for Blue Jasmine. Once again, he’s gathered a great cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Peter Sarsgaard, Louis C.K, Sally Hawkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and a whole host of names.
Currently, there’s not much given over the plot beyond this little snippet that says it is “the story of the final stages of an acute crisis and a life of a fashionable New York housewife.” With one hell of a ensemble and more witty Woody, we’re always sure he’ll come up with something clever. However, at the moment it’s only set release dates for La and New York on July 26th, the best day of the year. »

Hugh Dillon is starting another television gig, but he'd be happy to revisit his last one.
The Canadian actor-musician plays a prison guard who matches wits with a death row inmate (Peter Sarsgaard) when AMC's "The Killing" returns for a third season Sunday, June 2. Dillon's trademark intensity also remains on view in his role as Sgt. Ed Lane in Ion repeats of the elite-police-unit drama "Flashpoint," which has finished its five-season run ... but he hopes that show hasn't seen its absolute end.
"It was one of those great events in life," Dillon tells Zap2it about his "Flashpoint" tenure. "Just yesterday, I was talking to Sergio Di Zio, who played Spike on the show. It's very much like family. Also, I learned technical things there that I could bring to 'The Killing,' things you aren't even aware you've learned that you just bring to the next project."
Details about Woody Allen's latest film, "Blue Jasmine," may be hard to come by, but we've got something that will give fans of the director something to ponder for a while: the official poster (below), featuring a strikingly pensive Cate Blanchett. What we do know is that the film tells the story of a fashionable New York housewife in the final stages of an acute crisis. Sure, this may raise more questions than answers, but that just makes you want to see "Blue Jasmine" more, right? The movie also stars Alec Baldwin, Peter Sarsgaard, Louis C.K., and Bobby Cannavale. Check out the poster below, and discover what "Blue Jasmine" is all about when it hits theaters July 26. Click to zoom »

AMC’s atmospheric murder drama, The Killing is back from the dead. After cancellation, a third season is in production now. One of the biggest shockers we’ve revealed about the upcoming new season has been the fact that Detective Linden, arguably the series’ most important star, isn’t a cop anymore. That is, she isn’t on the job when season three opens. Today we have more details on what’s been happening in Linden’s life. There’s a video!
Linden is wonderfully acted by actress Mireille Enos and the first two seasons of The Killing aren’t her only claim to fame. She stole a few scenes in her Gangster Squad role as star, Josh Brolin’s wife and she’ll play Brad Pitt’s bride in World War Z. How is that for high profile?
“In the last moments of Season 2, she really is adrift,” Enos »

A new extended featurette for the upcoming third season of the resurrected AMC drama series The Killing has been released online, offering up a bounty of footage and info about the crime show's return. Season three picks up a year and a half after the events of the season two finale, as Mireille Enos’ Linden is now working in an isolated job outside the police force and Joel Kinnaman’s Holder has a new partner. Linden gets roped back in when bodies start piling up and Holder realizes that his serial killer case may be connected to one of Linden’s past cases. New cast member Peter Sarsgaard—who plays a death row inmate—notes that the season has three different narratives that are connected, so it’ll be interesting to see if showrunner Veena Sud can successfully weave the storylines while maintaining momentum or if the show will get »

AMC's revived drama The Killing is back on the case. The series, which was canceled in January by the cabler and brought back mere months later, returns with a brand new murder mystery for Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder to investigate that centers on a new villain in death row inmate Ray Seward, played by Peter Sarsgaard.

The Killing returns early next month, as rainy and sweater-laden as ever. Will there be chewing? Will there be frustration? Will there be an intense cliffhanger that gets immediately resolved in the first few seconds of the following episode? We shall see. This season will focus on a serial killer in an attempt to erase the memory of two whole seasons of Rosie Larsen garbage. Give me back those two years, The Killing! Check your Bockmail, etc., and behold Peter Sarsgaard as a blood-splattered death-row inmate. »

AMC's "The Killing" survived its own brush with TV death late last year and now we're getting a sneak peek at the show's June 2 return. (Warning: the video above contains strong violence.)
No worries about loose ends this time, Season 3 promises to resolve its central mystery in a single 10 episode arc. And from the looks of AMC's advertising, viewers are in for a brutal storyline.
Opening one year after the resolution of the Rosie Larsen murder case, the season picks up with Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) no longer in law enforcement. Her former partner Holder (Joel Kinnaman) lures her back to detective work to help solve a grisly series of murders somehow connected to a case from Linden's past.
It still rains a lot. But everything else has changed in the damp and deadly world of AMC’s The Killing for season three. Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) has quit Seattle homicide and lost custody of her teenage son. Her ex-partner Det. Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) has a new suit, new partner and an improved outlook on life. And the central mystery that reunites them isn’t solving one murder, but numerous, as a serial killer has been quietly preying on homeless street kids.
Showrunner Veena Sud spoke to EW about the new season of the show, the fate of »

The summer season has, over the past few decades, become synonymous with movie blockbuster season, as studios have found the months of May to August to contain the most profitable release dates for big-budget tentpole features, leading to the summer of recent years being filled with superhero films, big budget CGI features, and other tentpole movies that draw in huge crowds. This year is no different, as Marvel’s Iron Man 3 is set to kick off the summer movie season as May rolls around. However, this doesn’t mean non-blockbuster features don’t make their way to theatres during this time, and for those looking for smaller features, there are plenty of viewing options. Here are ten of our most anticipated non-blockbuster features set to be released over the next few months.
Author’s note: All films were selected based on their release date in American theatres. »
