It’s looking fairly concrete that the next Ridley Scott film we’ll be getting is The Martian (after the upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings of course). The film will star Matt Damon as an astronaut who is stranded on Mars and must find his way back home. The script was written by the amazing Drew Goddard (based on Andy Weir’s e-book turned Crown novel). And it could be good, I’m looking forward to seeing Scott work in a somewhat smaller scope. I mean, it’s a sci-fi movie set on another planet but it looks as though it’s sort of an intimate film in the vein of Cast Away. Last week we had heard that Jessica Chastain and Kristen Wiig were in the mix to appear in the film. I’m not sure if that’s still the case (it’s possible that this movie has a big female cast, »

Aaron Sorkin didn’t know how “The Newsroom” would end when he began writing the final season "For most of the time, I didn’t know how the show was going to end,” he says. "I would have small images of what I wanted to see. But the closer I got to the end of the season in terms of writing, the more I was able to see the end of the season finale. Once we got there, it happened more easily than I thought it was going to.” “Godzilla” movie has a “Breaking Bad” easter egg For a split second in the opening credits, you can see Walter White’s name.

• Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston will take the chariot reins as the title role in the upcoming remake of Ben-Hur. Previously, Tom Hiddleston had been in talks for the role of slave Judah Ben-Hur in the Paramount and MGM picture. Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is directing the film adapted by John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) and Keith Clarke (The Way Back) that is said to be based more on Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ than the 1959 film that starred Charlton Heston. Morgan Freeman has already been cast as Ildarin, the teacher who helps make the slave Ben-Hur into chariot racer champion. »

One of the many films to premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival was director Liv Ullman's Miss Julie, a film adaptation of August Strindberg’s famous 19th Century play. In the film, Jessica Chastain plays an aristocratic woman who strikes up a relationship with her father’s valet (Colin Farrell). The film explores issues of power through the lenses of social class, gender, and family. Unlike most modern movies, Miss Julie is deliberately paced and takes its time exploring the characters through long scenes filled with dialogue and emotion. Those who choose to pay attention will be dazzled by the performances and absolutely transported back in time. Shortly after the premiere, I landed an exclusive video interview with Liv Ullman. She talked about the how Chastain, Farrell, and Morton approached their performances, the classic appeal of the story, her first cut and what she removed from the film, »

Matt Damon is getting some company in the sci-fi survival film The Martian. The Wrap reports that Halt and Catch Fire star Mackenzie Davis is in talks to join director Ridley Scott’s next film in a “small but crucial role”. Scripted by Drew Goddard based on an e-book by Andy Weir, Damon stars as an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars and must figure out how to return home. Jessica Chastain is set to co-star in the pic in another unspecified role, but one imagines Damon will hold most of the screentime by himself. Davis has proven to be a formidable talent to watch in films like Breathe In and most recently the romantic comedy What If, and The Martian is certainly her highest profile role to date. In addition to The Martian, The Wrap notes that Davis is currently filming Anna Axster’s indie A Country Called Home »

A new poster for the film, which debuted over at Empire, places McConaughey on a beautiful but alien landscape and comes with the tagline, “The end of Earth will not be the end of us.” If fits nicely with the first poster’s “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.”
As the trailers and posters have shown, the planet is clearly in trouble, and it »

Touch of Class: Ullmann’s Update of Classic Text Ultimately Lifeless
There are a scant few equals to the texts of playwright August Strindberg’s, his 1888 play Miss Julie still ranking as one of theater’s most celebrated and intelligent titles. A forerunner of a movement toward naturalism, director Liv Ullmann pares down the visual flourish which hearkens back to Strindberg’s initial contrivance. Her first film since the critically celebrated Faithless (2000), which was written by Ullmann’s longtime collaborator Ingmar Bergman, the passion that burned through that relationship drama is replaced by reserved bouts of class driven animosity. While true to the initial spirit of Strindberg’s text, the focus here is devoted nearly entirely to class issues, leaving some of the play’s more subtle motifs rather neglected. Considering the extravagant and mesmerizing 1951 version from Swedish filmmaker Alf Sjoberg, Ullmann’s adaptation is a chewy piece of meat, »

What we do know about the plot is that spaceman Matthew McConaughey is trying to find a new home for the residents of earth with the help of Anne Hathaway.

If you haven't seen the first season of HBO's masterful True Detective, you really need to get on that now. Unless of course you enjoy crap television; in which case please continue viewing those awful reality shows.
At any rate, the second season of True Detective is still trying to narrow in on a cast. Its looking very likely that Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch will appear in some capacity, there has been a lot of talk of who the female lead will be.
Early reports named Jessica Chastain, Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams, but now The Wrap has a list of seven actresses that Exec Producer Nic Pizzolatto is looking at, and those ladies are not on it; however, The Wrap does note that does not mean they're out of contention for the role.
Here's the list of actresses who have been called back this week to »

Empire has unveiled the all-new poster for Christopher Nolan’s hotly-anticipated sci-fi adventure, Interstellar. The ambiguous, space-set one-sheet situates Matthew McConaughey’s Cooper amidst an alien landscape and while it doesn’t exactly reveal much in terms of new information — this is Christopher Nolan, after all — this latest posters hints at the stark visual style we can look forward to come November. Interstellar will take place in the not-so-distant future, a time when Earth has essentially entered its twilight years and is no longer able to sustain human life. So, in order to find a new place and call it home, mankind rallies together a dedicated band of astronauts — Bruce Willis and co. were out of town, unfortunately — to venture forth into the far reaches of space. Joining McConaughey on the intergalactic voyage are Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow and Christopher Nolan’s own good luck charm, »

I really love the marketing for Christopher Nolan's latest film Interstellar. It's been every reserved and doesn't try to overexpose the film. The newest bit of promotional material is a poster and magazine cover that features its star, Matthew McConaughey, in a space suit. I'm not going to overanalyze why there is a second inverted mountain ridge and just chalk it up to a creative art department. This poster and and similar-looking cover come via Empire.
We also have an interview with Jessica Chastain in which she pretty much says nothing about the film, but does talk about how hard it is to keep things secret. Source: THR.

Warner Bros. and Paramount have released a new Interstellar poster online. The film stars Matthew McConaughey and revolves around a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole “to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.” Like the teaser poster, the tagline is a mix of fatalism and optimism, and I’m curious to see if that will mirror the tone of the picture. As for the shot of McConaughey in the spacesuit, his expression is inscrutable. Is it determined? Confused? Hungry? He’s a real actor now, so it’s layered. Hit the jump to check out the new Interstellar poster. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Timothée Chalamet, and Matt Damon.
