James Wan Set to Direct DC's 'Aquaman' Movie + Sony's 'Robotech'

2 hours ago

Well now we know what's in store for James Wan. Warner Bros has officially confirmed that James Wan will be directing the Aquaman movie based on the DC Comics superhero, with Jason Momoa already set to play the aquatic superhero (since he's supposed to potentially appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). Wan just came off of directing Furious 7, which is setting some epic box office records, and has also been confirmed for the Robotech movie (via THR). "The Aquaman film will be a major tentpole picture for us and James's span of work has proven him able to take on any manner of project, bringing his incredible creative talent and unique voice to the material," Warner Bros' Greg Silverman commented on the news. The announcement also included this rather brief and basic plot synopsis for the Aquaman movie: An icon for over 70 years, Aquaman is the King of the Seven Seas. »

Must Watch: First Trailer for Incredible Documentary 'Cartel Land'

2 hours ago

"I believe what I am doing is good, and what I am standing up against is evil." The Orchard has unveiled the first official trailer for the documentary Cartel Land, one of the best documentaries this year, hands down. This first premiered at Sundance and has played at numerous festivals all over the world, and is getting quite a bit of acclaim because it's a hell of a film. Cartel Land documents two stories, one from each side of the border, in the increasingly violent struggle between cartels and peaceful people on the Us-Mexico border. You may think you've seen and heard all this already, but the footage in Cartel Land is incredible, and he presents a devastatingly dire looking at the situation. And that's why this documentary must be seen. Here's the first trailer for Matthew Heineman's documentary Cartel Land, found via The Film Stage: Matthew Heineman's »

Disney Planning a Remake of 1992 Hit Musical Comedy 'Sister Act'

3 hours ago

Another day, another remake. This time I simply cannot get excited for this, just no way. THR is reporting that Disney is preparing a new version of Sister Act, but of course. Why not mine their entire collection of past live-action films that made a boatload of money and... remake them! All of them! The only good news is that they're hiring writers Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith and Karen McCullah, of the films 10 Things I Hate About You, Legally Blonde, She's the Man, The House Bunny, The Ugly Truth, Crazy Kind of Love, plus Expendabelles coming up. Disney is putting Cinderella producer Allison Shearmur on-board to develop it. Other than that, they're not sure if Whoopi Goldberg, who starred in the original, will even be back or not. Touchstone Pictures' 1992 film Sister Act starring Whoopi Goldberg was actually a completely original idea pitched by screenwriter Paul Rudnick. His original script »

Greta Gerwig in First Trailer for Noah Baumbach's 'Mistress America'

4 hours ago

"She did everything and nothing. Being around her was like being in New York City." Fox Searchlight has debuted the first trailer for Noah Baumbach's Mistress America, co-starring Greta Gerwig and Lola Kirke as oddball unlikely friends in New York City. This film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January to great buzz, and has been called a spiritual sequel of sorts to Frances Ha, the last film from Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach. Essentially it picks up with the character and another one of her friends, this time her "soon-to-be stepsister". This looks quite charming and quite fun, and perhaps painfully honest, but that's why it's getting such rave reviews. Get your first look below at Baumbach's other new film this year. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Noah Baumbach's Mistress America, direct via YouTube: Tracy (Lola Kirke) is a lonely college freshman in New York City, »

Go Rogue - Character Posters for 'Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation'

4 hours ago

Go rogue. And apparently get a fog machine and black jacket while at it. Paramount has debuted a set of four character posters for Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, starring Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt. Cruise gets one big front and center poster, where he's shrouded in smoke and mystery and darkness. Thankfully he isn't wearing a hoodie, but this dark brooding poster does seem to take a tiny hint from that poster for Ghost Protocol. There are three more posters: one for Alec Baldwin, one for Rebecca Ferguson on a motorcycle, and one for Jeremy Renner as Brandt. Update: both Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames posters have been added below as well, just released by the studio. Thank you to IMPAwards and Paramount for debuting these - click any image above to see fullsize versions. See the full theatrical trailer for Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation here. »

Carey Mulligan & Helena Bonham Carter in Full 'Suffragette' Trailer

8 hours ago

"This is a deliberate escalation... this has to stop!" Focus Features has debuted the full-length trailer for Suffragette, starring Meryl Streep as Mrs. Pankhurst plus Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, and Romola Garai. Suffragette is a film about the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. This powerful yet sensitive trailer shows how hard it was to be a part of this fight, both physically and emotionally. This looks like it might end up being really, really good - potential awards buzz and lots more. Here's the full-length trailer for Sarah Gavron's Suffragette, direct from Focus Features: Suffragette is directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) and written by Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady). The film tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who »

Watch: Nat Wolff & Cara Delevingne in Second 'Paper Towns' Trailer

19 hours ago

"If I don't find Margo, it's all for nothing!" 20th Century Fox has debuted a new trailer for the film Paper Towns, directed by Jake Schreier (of Robot & Frank), starring Nat Wolff. Based on the novel by John Green, the story follows three friends lead by Quentin (Wolff) that go on a search to find for Margo Roth Spiegelman, played by Cara Delevingne, who suddenly goes missing. We've seen one full-length trailer already that establishes the story, and this replays most of that same footage, but there's a few bits to keep us guessing about where she went. I'm intrigued, it looks good, they've captured my attention. Take a look. Here's the second trailer for Jake Schreier's Paper Towns, direct from 20th Century Fox: Paper Towns is directed by Jake Schreier (Robot & Frank) with a script by Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber (both of (500) Days of Summer and The Fault in Our Stars »

2 June 2015 3:36 PM, PDT

Thunder buddies for life. Universal has debuted yet another red band trailer for Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2, the return of everyone's favorite foul-mouthed teddy bear. This ain't even the first red band trailer either. They basically pack all kinds of jokes and ridiculous scenes into this trailer that they can't normally show to regular audiences. F-bombs, lots of pot smoking and pot jokes, and a little bit of the plot. Mark Wahlberg returns along with Seth MacFarlane as the voice of Ted, joined by Amanda Seyfried, who shows up in just about every scene of this trailer, plus Morgan Freeman and Jessica Barth as Tami-Lynn. Have fun. Here's the new red band trailer for Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2, direct from AMC's YouTube: If you want to see more footage, you can still watch the first trailer for Ted 2 right here.

Clint Eastwood to Direct Movie About Captain Sully for Warner Bros

2 June 2015 2:55 PM, PDT

"This is truly a dream team." Warner Bros has officially announced that Clint Eastwood will be directing the movie about Captain Sully, the pilot who was able to safely land U.S. Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River in New York in January 2009. The title seems to be Miracle on the Hudson, but that may change. The announcement was made official by Warner Bros via THR, with statements from Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger himself. "I am very glad my story is in the hands of gifted storyteller and filmmaker Clint Eastwood, and veteran producers Allyn Stewart and Frank Marshall. The project could not have found a better home than Warner Bros. Pictures," he says. Looks like a fine team, here's to hoping it turns out okay. Clint Eastwood has been on a roll, directing movie after movie after movie recently. He latest was American Sniper (which was nominated for Best »

'The Square' Director Quietly Working on Doc About the Sony Hack

2 June 2015 2:19 PM, PDT

It was going to happen one day. Someone had to make a film about the Sony Hack. Word from THR is that filmmaker Jehane Noujaim (seen above) of the Oscar-nominated documentary The Square, working with her husband Karim Amer, is already "quietly" developing a documentary that "explores the cyberattack". The Sony Hack was at the top of the news for weeks late last December, with new information being leaked almost every single day for a few weeks. It was crazy to watch unfold, then suddenly everything went silent, right before the VOD release of The Interview on Christmas Day. THR's sources say that "director Noujaim and producer Amer will put forth alternative theories about the hack’s culprit" but that's all they reveal. While I'm personally thankful this project isn't a Hollywood adaptation of a Hollywood disaster, and rather just a documentary, I'm very intrigued to see what their angle(s) will be. »

2 June 2015 10:24 AM, PDT

"One question... Is it too late to change the name?" We've been featuring numerous posters for Marvel's Ant-Man over the last few months, mostly because it's interesting to see the range of good/terrible artwork being released by the actual movie studio for this movie. On the other side of the spectrum is Poster Posse, a website which has just launched another fan-made gallery of prints and fine art made for Ant-Man. As always, their selection has some crazy unique design in it that I just can't help posting about. This time it's that trippy shrinking Ant-Man red poster, and it's awesome.

'A Royal Affair' Director Nikolaj Arcel Next to Take on 'The Dark Tower'

2 June 2015 10:20 AM, PDT

Another interesting update on the long-gestating adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower, and this time it might be some good news. Deadline is reporting that Danish director Nikolaj Arcel (of A Royal Affair, Truth About Men, Island of Lost Souls) is the latest to be handed the reigns to The Dark Tower adaptation, now in the works at Sony Pictures with funding from Media Rights Capital. Their intention is to turn the book series into a franchise of movies, of course, with a linked TV show in a similar fashion to the version Ron Howard was working on a few years ago. Arcel is a huge fan of The Dark Tower and knows the series well, apparently teaching himself English so he could read King's books. But will it actually happen? For years and years we followed development on The Dark Tower projects at Universal, where Ron Howard »

First Teaser for Pixar's 'The Good Dinosaur' Directed by Peter Sohn

2 June 2015 9:41 AM, PDT

"What if..." Disney-Pixar has finally debuted the teaser trailer for Peter Sohn's The Good Dinosaur, the next animated movie from Pixar due out in theaters later this year. Pixar's Inside Out is coming up in just a few weeks, and it's likely this teaser is attached to that release. This is the same teaser that Disney has been showing, setting up the basic backstory for the movie. What if the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs didn't actually hit Earth, and they went on to live for years, what would be different? Well, people would be pets, dinosaurs would be the dominate species. There's a hint at that story in the footage at the end. Fire it up! Here's the first teaser trailer for Pixar's The Good Dinosaur, originally from Yahoo: The Good Dinosaur is directed by Peter Sohn (director of Partly Cloudy, animator on The Incredibles and Wall-e).

Watch: The Academy's Look Back at Cheech & Chong's 'Up in Smoke'

1 June 2015 4:23 PM, PDT

"Nobody had seen any movies like this before - where the stoners were the good guys, and the cops were the bad guys." The Academy (of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences, that gives out the Oscars) has launched an online featurette profiling Cheech & Chong's Up in Smoke, the classic stoner movie that has influenced pretty much every stoner movie ever since. The video has interviews with Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, along with plenty of others, and it looks back at the film's release and impact on the comedy genre. There's a charming, laidback vibe to the video and their feelings about the film's impact. He really hits the nail on the head when Chong says: "it feels like you just smoked a nice joint, you know..." Yeah man, totally.

Dwayne Johnson Bringing Us the 'Big Trouble in Little China' Remake

1 June 2015 3:52 PM, PDT

Another day, another remake. But this one might actually work. Big news coming from The Wrap, where they're reporting that 20th Century Fox is in negotiations to sign on Dwayne Johnson for a remake of cult favorite Big Trouble in Little China. Johnson is looking at starring in and producing the remake of the John Carpenter film, which is getting a script from X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller & Zack Stentz. The original Big Trouble in Little China, released in 1986, is an action cult classic starring Kurt Russell as a trucker who gets dragged into some wacky weird mystical showdown in Chinatown. If you've never seen it, first order of business is finding an old VHS copy and having a blast. As for the remake, I'm actually curious. Big Trouble in Little China is the kind of film that is ripe for a remake considering it's a campy 80's cult classic. »

Vincenzo Natali Reveals Concept Art from Numerous Dead Projects

1 June 2015 2:23 PM, PDT

Let's take a look at some of the projects Vincenzo Natali has been working on. The filmmaker recently took to Twitter to share some of the concept art, and even pages of a script, for various projects that are now dead - or have progressed into different iterations. One of them is his Neuromancer movie, based on William Gibson's book, which Vincenzo had been attached to for years. Only a few weeks ago it was reported the film had financing to move forward, but without him. He also posted some pitch art (where a director creates art to show what their version of a movie would look/feel like) for a Predator movie and his take on Stephen King's It adaptation. The It movie also hit a snag, with the director leaving that, too. View below. Here's a look at some of the unique concept art for Natali's Neuromancer »

Watch: Official Us Trailer for Ramin Bahrani's Latest Film '99 Homes'

1 June 2015 10:46 AM, PDT

"Fifty dollars shouldn't be a joke to you, son!" Broad Green Pictures has finally debuted an official trailer for 99 Homes, the latest film from Ramin Bahrani, a very talented American filmmaker who has worked in the indie scene for years. A few years ago we were big supporters of At Any Price, but recommend any of Bahrani's previous films: Man Push Cart, Chop Shop, Goodbye Solo, etc. Also - see this one. 99 Homes stars Andrew Garfield as a young father, who decides to join the real estate business and work for the man that took his house from him. Michael Shannon co-stars, along with Laura Dern. The film is very powerful, and emotionally draining, but a very important film for these times. It's tough to watch, but so well made. Here's the official Us trailer for Ramin Bahrani's 99 Homes, found originally on YouTube: 99 Homes is directed by Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart, »
