Yahoo! has the redband trailer and a poster for Inside Llewyn Davis, directed by the Coen Bros.
‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles — some of them of his own making.
The trailer doesn’t look a whole lot different from the first trailer. The movie’s main character reminds me a lot of Michael Stuhlbarg’s in the Coen Bros’ 2009 film A Serious Man. This is partly because of the verbal punishment he gets from an unrecognizable Carey Mulligan.
You don’t need to be a Folk fan to dig this movie, it looks worthy of watching for the performances alone. »

From Oscar-nominated writer and director Martin McDonagh (Best Original Screenplay, In Bruges, 2008) comes a star-studded, blood-drenched black comedy. Marty (Colin Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing »
When you think about the ridiculous behind the scenes problems that Men In Black III had - including long delays so that the script could be almost totally rewritten - the movie itself is actually not that bad. The story is fairly stupid and there are some gaping plot holes, but the whole thing is kept together by the never-yielding charisma of Will Smith and the spot-on Tommy Lee Jones impression by Josh Brolin (not to mention a funny supporting turn by Michael Stuhlbarg). Audiences responded as well, with the film making $179 million in the United States and a crazy $445 million internationally. Given that success, Sony is going to give it another go. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that upcoming screenwriter Oren Uziel, who scripted the Mortal Kombat: Rebirth short film as well as the upcoming horror comedy The Kitchen Sink, has been hired by the studio to write a »
We just barely learned that Colin Firth is going to headline Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class co-writer/director Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming Mark Millar comic book adaptation, The Secret Service, and now reports are in that the Oscar-winning actor is also making plans to co-headline Woody Allen’s currently-untitled followup project to his Summer 2013 release, Blue Jasmine.
The Woodmeister returned to his native U.S. shores to shoot Blue Jasmine, which is a comedy about a New York housewife (Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett) who must deal with “the final stages of an acute crisis.” Per usual for a Woody Allen project, the cast includes big names like Alec Baldwin and comedians Andrew Dice Clay and Louis C.K., in addition to such credible supporting talent as Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire), Peter Sarsgaard (Click to continue reading Colin Firth to Star Opposite Emma Stone in New Woody Allen Movie

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. »

Chicago – Michael Bay’s “Pain & Gain” tells such a ridiculous story that it has to be true. Based on the infamous case of the Sun Gym Gang, a trio of bodybuilders who committed some unspeakable, bizarre crimes, “Pain & Gain” nearly works through the sheer charisma and talent of its A-list cast. A bloated running time, Bay’s problems with pacing, and a pretty juvenile script hold it back from truly clicking but there is enough manic energy to this larger-than-life story that it could practically numb one into thinking it connects as well as it should.
“Pain & Gain” will inspire film goers to consider who might have done more with the same story. What would Joel & Ethan Coen’s “Pain & Gain” look like? (It would have been a dark, comic masterpiece and the lead role probably would have been played by Michael Stuhlbarg). What would Martin Scorsese’s “Pain & Gain” feel like? »

We’ve got some new stills from Woody Allen’s upcoming project Blue Jasmine. The movie plot is still a bit of a mystery, which is normal when it comes to Allen’s upcoming movies. The only thing we know about the movie is that it will tell us the story of the final stages of an acute crisis and a life of a fashionable New York housewife. On the other hand, we do know that an extraordinary cast is on board for the whole thing. Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg all star in it!...

The plots for Woody Allen movies tend to be state secrets as long as possible before the film is released, and as such, his upcoming "Blue Jasmine" is still a bit of a mystery. But one thing we do know: Cate Blanchett doesn't seem to happy (or her character anyway). Following the first image that dropped earlier this month, a few more have arrived, and she barely manages a smirk in any of them. Meanwhile, we get a first look at Alec Baldwin looking like Alec Baldwin, as well as comedian Andrew Dice Clay looking... actually, just as we expected. Comedy? Drama? Somewhere in between? Seems like it will be the latter but again, it's hard to tell. And the excellent cast which includes Sally Hawkins, Louis C.K., Bobby Cannavale (who looks amazing), Peter Sarsgaard, and Michael Stuhlbarg could really take this in any direction. We'll find out when "Blue Jasmine »

Hitchcock, the critically acclaimed biopic on the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock, is now available on Blu-ray. Directed by Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! the Story of Anvil), the movie deliciously delves into the behind-the-scenes drama that went into the making of Hitchcock's seminial classic Psycho. We recently caught up with actor James D'Arcy, who takes on the guise of Alfred's leading man Anthony Perkins and the persona of Norman Bates, for a quick chat about this provocative and insightful bit of cinematic history.
How many layers are there to Norman Bates and his alter ego Anthony Perkins? Here is our conversation.
The great innovators and popular entertainers of previous generations often fade from sight from they retire or die. A new generation discovers them afresh, either on their own, or someone has done some digging. In the case of the famed director Alfred Hitchcock, he has spawned a cottage industry with recent biographies and films. Hitchcock, with Anthony Hopkins nearly unrecognizable under the latex, is based on Stephen Rebello’s Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, and portrays a particular point of view about the Englishman.
Psycho is currently his best known work, especially with this week’s debut of Bates Motel on cable but critics tend to pick his other, earlier works as among his best. Sure, this thriller is terrifying and exciting and surprising thanks to the Robert Bloch story, direction, and performances. And the making of the film is worthy of exploration. Director Sacha Gervasi has a »

The first released image from Woody Allen's latest annual film, "Blue Jasmine," shows fashionable Manhattan housewife Cate Blanchett looking a tad malaise-stricken. Per usual the upscale comedy boasts a sprawling ensemble cast, including returning "To Rome with Love" star Alec Baldwin as a man in crisis, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard, Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Stuhlbarg and Louis C.K. For the first time in years, Allen shot the film on stateside locations (including San Francisco and Allen's native New York), as opposed to the director's recent preference for romantic European locales ("To Rome with Love," "Match Point," "Vicky Christina Barcelona"). "Blue Jasmine" is set to hit New York and La theaters July 26 via Sony Pictures Classics, in its sixth collaboration with Allen, including the auteur's best-performing film to date, Oscar-nominated "Midnight in Paris." »

Woody Allen's career is like a shark -- it has to constantly move forward or it dies. Which is another way of saying that Allen is ready to release "Blue Jasmine," his 46th feature film, later this year, and Sony Pictures Classics has unveiled a first look at the upcoming comedy.
Starring Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Cannavale, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg, "Blue Jasmine" is about "the final stages of an acute crisis and a life of a fashionable New York housewife." Whether that "fashionable New York housewife" is Blanchett remains to be seen, but the Oscar-winning actress looks to be in top form in the first still from "Blue Jasmine." (That's Hawkins in the background.) Check out the picture below. "Blue Jasmine" is out on July 26.

Forget J.J. Abrams, forget Christopher Nolan...no one knows secrecy like Woody Allen. The prolific filmmaker continues his one-movie-per-year work schedule this summer with the release of "Blue Jasmine," and what do we know about it? Nothing really except that it finds the filmmaker back on American soil after spending most of the last few years gallivanting around Europe. But a new image is here, so you can decipher all the clues you want. First up, it features Cate Blanchet looking well dressed, but none too pleased, while Sally Hawkins throws some shade in the background. So, are we seeing a return to dramatic territory for Allen? The presence of guys like Louis C.K. and Andrew Dice Clay would refute that, while the involvement of Bobby Cannavale, Peter Sarsgaard, and Michael Stuhlbarg offer the counter argument. The logline doesn't offer much help either, explaining that the movie is “the story »
