Dwayne Johnson Will Do Anything For His Son In Snitch Super Bowl Trailer
Taylor Kitsch was the front and center star of last year's Super Bowl trailers, with spots for John Carter and Battleship, but this year seems to belong to Dwayne Johnson. During Sunday's game we'll see the first preview of the upcoming Fast Six, where the action star returns as Dss Federal Agent Luke Hobbs, as well as a new look at Snitch, the new thriller from director Ric Roman Waugh. But while we still have a few days to wait for the sixth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise, the latter has already made its way online. It somewhat kills the specialness of seeing it live, but Summit Entertainment has unleashed their Super Bowl spot for Snitch a few days early - and without one of those silly little teases. Check it out below! Based on a true story and written by Waugh and Justin Haythe, Snitch tells the »
Jeremy Renner to Star in Real-Life CIA Story Kill The Messenger
Fresh off his turn as a blood-thirsty witch hunter in the aptly named Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, star Jeremy Renner is turning his attention to something a bit more serious. Deadline reports that Renner is set to star in the thriller Kill the Messenger, which is based on the true story of a news reporter named Gary Webb whose life was ruined when he linked the CIA to a scheme to arm Contra rebels in Nicaragua and import cocaine into California. After publishing his 1996 series “Dark Alliance,” Webb became the target of a smear campaign by the CIA that eventually drove him to depression and suicide. It’s certainly a meaty role for Renner, and one I’m eager to see him take on following his recent string of actioners. Michael Cuesta (Homeland, Dexter) will direct from a script by Peter Landesman, which is based on two non-fiction books: Webb »

Music Videos: Penelope Cruz Shimmies For Miguel Bosé & 'Junebug' Helmer Phil Morrison Directs Yo La Tengo
As crazy as this sounds, we don’t have the best memories of the last time we saw Penelope Cruz wearing little more than some lacy lingerie while singing. In fairness, that’s nothing to do with Cruz herself, but more that said singing in lingerie was taking place during Rob Marshall’s tedious musical “Nine.” Cruz is back singing in her lingerie again, and the result is an altogether more pleasant one – she’s teamed up with the Grammy-winning Michael Bosé on a single from his debut album, Decirnos Adios. You can watch Cruz performing the song (which was composed by her brother Eduardo) in the video below and see whether you think her singing is on a par with her acting. And though Yo La Tengo can’t boast a lingerie-clad Peneleope Cruz in their new video, “I’ll Be Around” does have the talents of “Junebug” director Phil Morrison, »

Casting Update for Stephen King's 'Mercy'
According to an update from Deadline.com, Mark Duplass (Zero Dark Thirty) has joined the cast of Mercy, the film adaptation of Stephen King's skin-crawling Skeleton Crew short story "Gramma," about two boys and their creepy bed-ridden grandmother, who turns out to have occult powers. The story, which is loosely tied to H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, was previously adapted by accclaimed author Harlan Ellison for the '80s Twilight Zone series, but this will be the first feature-length version. "Gramma" was adapted for the screen by writer Matt Greenberg (who previously adapted King's 1408) and directed by Peter Cornwell (A Haunting In Connecticut). Duplass will co-star with Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story), Frances O’Connor, Chandler Riggs, Joel Courtney, Shirley Knight and Chris Browning. The film is tentatively slated for a 2014 release. »

Jeremy Renner To Star In True Story Thriller 'Kill The Messenger'
Jeremy Renner had an interesting 2012. He featured in two major franchise movies -- "The Avengers" and "The Bourne Legacy" -- yet didn't seem to get much of a bump from either. And while "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" opened at number one last weekend, it's not a movie anyone involved is going to be proudly touting. However, 2013 may finally see him live up to that pair of Oscar nominations. He has a role in James Gray's period drama "Lowlife," and he's getting ready to shoot David O. Russell's Abscam project alongside Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Amy Adams, and now he's lined up another project that is also very promising. The actor has signed to star in "Kill The Messenger," a long developing movie penned by Peter Landesman ("Parkland") and set to be directed by Michael Cuesta ("Homeland," "Dexter"). And it certainly seems right up the alley of the helmer. »

Mike Judge's HBO Pilot 'Silicon Valley' Adds T.J. Miller & Thomas Middleditch
T.J. Miller and Thomas Middleditch are both familiar faces who you've seen pop up in various movies and TV shows during the last few years. Miller’s biggest roles have been in “Cloverfield,” “She’s Out of My League” and “Yogi Bear,” and we've already sung his praises for his turn in the short "Successful Alcoholics." Meanwhile, you may recognize Middleditch from “The Campaign,” “Fun Size” (where he was the best thing in it, by a country mile) and a whole host of CollegeHumor shorts. They’ve both already shown tons of comedic promise, and it looks like their faces are going to become a whole lot more familiar, after being cast in Mike Judge’s single-camera comedy pilot, “Silicon Valley.” HBO have ordered the dark comedy pilot from creator/exec-producer Judge and fellow producer Scott Rudin. The pilot will be set in the “high tech gold rush of modern Silicon. »

Actor Ezra Miller has rightfully earned a reputation for his willingness and ability to give fearless performances, including the one he gave as Patrick in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Recognized for his emotionally moving work in that film, he was honored with a Virtuosos Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (Sbiff). Collider was there to cover and attend the event, and we’ve compiled the highlights of what the actor had to say, both on the press line and during the Q&A. While there, Ezra Miller talked about how amazing it’s been that the film has been able to reach kids in the way that they’d hoped, his reaction when he first read the book at 14, how exciting it was to play a fully realized and confident gay character, the unfortunate reality of the American high school experience, the first time he saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show, »

Warm Bodies Review
In order to keep the zombie genre from rotting, it needs fresh life. 28 Days Later did away with the "z-word" and turned zombification into a virus. Last year, ParaNorman took a compassionate view of the undead by seeing that they were just misunderstood albeit terrifying. Warm Bodies moves in the direction of the latter to the point where it's straining to even be a zombie movie. Instead, Warm Bodies is more of a romance that embraces its reinvention of Romeo & Juliet, but with so much sweetness and charm, it's hard to begrudge the lack of brain-eating or flesh-rotting. R (Nicholas Hoult) is a zombie whose life (and/or death) is beset with a general malaise. He doesn't enjoy his lot of in life (and/or death), but he finds purpose after devouring the brains of Perry (Dave Franco), getting his memories, and falling in love with Perry's girlfriend, Julie (Teresa Palmer »

Zachary Quinto Wants To Know If You Care About Spock
Billy Eichner hosts "Billy on the Street," a gem of a television program on FunnyOrDie.com and on the Fuse Network every Friday. He recently hosted Star Trek's Zachary Quinto for a delightful game called "It's Spock! Do You Care?," in which Eichner runs around Manhattan with Quinto and asks unsuspecting Manhattanites if they care that the guy who plays Spock is right next to them.
And though we at NextMovie might trip over ourselves to wax philosophical with the Star Trek star, it turns out most New Yorkers wouldn't, necessarily, with a few exceptions. In fact, most of the people in this video are just horrified.
That's a shame, because Quinto and others will be starring in "Star Trek: Into Darkness" in May and we'd imagine he has a lot to say about it. We care, Zach. We Care! »

Denzel Washington Could Make August Wilson's Fences As His Next Directorial Effort
Denzel Washington chooses his directorial projects very carefully. Though he earned quite a bit of critical praise for his 2002 debut Antwone Fisher, it wasn't until five years later that Washington decided to step behind the camera again to make The Great Debaters in 2007. Now six years have gone by without seeing Washington work on a directorial effort, but that streak could be coming to an end soon. The star, who is up for an Academy Award this year for his performance in Robert Zemeckis' Flight, has revealed to Empire that he now developing his next film to helm and that it will be an adaptation of the Tony Award-winning August Wilson play Fences. Washington has deep ties to the production as he starred in the play when it was revived on Broadway back in 2010 (along with Viola Davis) and took home the Tony for Best Actor In A Play. »
