Bruckner To Direct ‘Friday The 13th’ Reboot?

22 minutes ago

It looks like the reboot of popular slasher franchise Friday The 13th may have found its director in the shape of horror pro David Bruckner.

Bruckner already has genre films V/H/S and The Signal under his directorial belt, so if talks go according to plan he should be in prime position to bring Jason Voorhees (the monster who launched a thousand Halloween costumes) back to the big screen.

Of course, whether another reboot will be a worthwhile addition to the Friday The 13th family or just a cash cow remains to be seen. After all, we’ve had one pretty pointless reboot already in 2009. There’s no word on the direction the project will take yet either, apart from the obvious machetes, hockey masks and lashings of blood. But it’s definitely all new and not a sequel to the 2009 reboot – although is it a reboot of the reboot? »

Rom-Com With A Twist In ‘Obvious Child’ Trailer

54 minutes ago

Tired of all the summer blockbusters heading your way? Probably not, as there are some great ones this year. But, you may still find some time to enjoy the little folks, including this quaint little spin on the rom-com genre, Obvious Child. It follows a stand-up comedian in the middle of major life changes who gets pregnant after a one night stand. Starring former SNL cast member Jenny Slate as Donna, she must wrestle with her new found predicament as well as telling the father about her plans for an abortion.

Although stated enough in the trailer, it does look refreshingly honest with the kind of gentle laughs that don’t outweigh the more dramatic moments. It’s already built quite the momentum from appearances at a number of film festivals, and will be getting a wider release this summer in the Us.

Obvious Child is to be released on »

International Trailer For Paul Haggis’ ‘Third Person’ Released

1 hour ago

After a debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, and a slot booked at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, Paul Haggis’ latest venture Third Person now has an international trailer.

Set in Paris, Rome and New York, Third Person follows three different love stories, all connected with each other in some way. Michael (Liam Neeson), Sean (Adrien Brody) and Rick (James Franco), the three main male characters, are leading very different lives, each with their own problems. However as each story unravels, secrets are unveiled and relationships come under scrutiny, testifying to the complications of life.

The trailer doesn’t give too much away about each character’s story, however it does leave us wondering how the plot will link the individuals together. A release date for the Us hasn’t yet been confirmed, however it will be released this month in Italy and Belgium, and Japan later this year. »

‘Magic Mike Xxl’ Secures Summer Release

1 hour ago

The brilliant and hilarious stripper comedy Magic Mike, which sadly included no actual magic, was a bit of surprise hit when it first arrived in 2012. A sequel was quickly announced and now we have confirmation of the exact release date. The aptly titled Magic Mike Xxl will get people hot under the collar from 3rd July 2015. It’s a prime summer spot, especially in the Us where they’ll be celebrating Independence Day the very next day, and what better way to celebrate?

The original film was directed by Steven Soderbergh whereas the sequel will promote the first assistant director of Magic Mike, Gregory Jacobs, to the director’s chair. Channing Tatum is set to return, but there’s still no word on other cast members such as Matthew McConaughey. Tatum will also be contributing to the writing process, which is understandable as he used to work as a male stripper. »

New Poster For ‘The Immigrant’ Starring Marion Cotillard & Joaquin Phoenix

9 hours ago

The Immigrant made its debut at Cannes last year and has reunited director James Gray with Joaquin Phoenix for the fourth time, after they previously worked together on We Own The Night, Two Lovers and The Yards.

We already previously heard that Gray wrote this role specifically for Cotillard, who here plays Ewa Cybulski, a woman who sails to New York with her sister from their native Poland in search of a new start. However, when they reach Ellis Island, the doctors discover that Magda is ill, and they are separated.

Out on her own, Ewa quickly falls prey to Bruno (Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who takes her in and forces her into prostitution. The arrival of Orlando (Jeremy Renner) – a dashing stage magician  - restores her self-belief and hopes for a brighter future, becoming her only chance to escape the nightmare in which she finds herself.

‘Fast & Furious 7′ Recruits Paul Walker’s Brothers

10 hours ago

Last month production restarted on Fast & Furious 7, coming after the tragic death of the star of the series, Paul Walker, in November last year. However, today an official statement was issued confirming that Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, will be helping out director James Wan with the film. The statement says:

A Note to the Fans of Fast & Furious

The Fast & Furious saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans.

Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film.

We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. »

Entertainment One have given us the first UK trailer for the highly anticipated A Most Wanted Man, the new film directed by Anton Corbijn (Control), and based on John le Carré’s celebrated spy thriller.

Present day Hamburg: a tortured and near-dead half-Chechen, half-Russian man on the run arrives in the city’s Islamic community desperate for help and looking to recover his late Russian father’s ill-gotten fortune. Nothing about him seems to add up; is he a victim, thief or, »

Teaser Trailer And Poster For David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl’ Starring Ben Affleck & Rosamund Pike

19 hours ago

The new teaser poster and first trailer for David Fincher’s adaptation of Gone Girl is here! This is the big screen adaption from Gillian Flynn’s novel and highly anticipated, it stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Scoot McNairy, Missi Pyle, Casey Wilson, Emily Ratajkowski, and Neil Patrick Harris.

Gone Girl tells the story of a woman (Rosamund Pike) who disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, with all the evidence pointing to her husband Nick (Ben Affleck). Those who are familiar with Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel are in for a surprise, as Flynn has written a new ending for the film.

David Fincher’s last adaptation was Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo released in 2011. Fans of the books were a little disappointed as Fincher failed to finish the series that surrounds the dark heroine, Lisbeth Salander, played by Rooney Mara. »

Paul Bettany Confirms Vision Role In ‘Avengers 2′

14 April 2014 11:05 PM, PDT

Paul Bettany has been with the Marvel cinematic universe since the very beginning, taking on the role of Tony Stark’s AI butler J.A.R.V.I.S. However, it seems as though vocal work just isn’t enough, and although rumours have persisted for months regarding Bettany’s promotion to physicality in the form of The Vision in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, there was never any real official confirmation. Now Paul Bettany has gone on record commenting on his role during a live performance on the Jimmy Kimmel show to promote Transcendence:

It’s very exciting for me, but everything is a double edged sword, right? Because I was playing J.A.R.V.I.S. for years and my job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, and then they would give ma huge bag of cash and then I’d go home. »

14 April 2014 3:30 PM, PDT

It has been reported that Helen Mirren is seeking out a role in Trumbo, starring opposite Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston. Walter White, erm, Cranston has been attached to the project for a while, playing the lead role of Dalton Trumbo with Mirren said to be eyeing the role of Cleo, Trumbo’s wife.

With Jay Roach as director, Trumbo tells the story of famed screenwriter and author, Dalton Trumbo. He was blacklisted after refusing to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1947. However, he kept on writing under several different aliases and went on to winning Academy Awards for his efforts, he won for both Irving Rapper’s The Brave One and William Wyler’s Roman Holiday.

Mirren’s most recent screen outing was in Red 2 and will soon return to the screen again in Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred-foot Journey, which is due to be released in September of this year. »

Updated: Elizabeth Banks In Great ‘Walk Of Shame’ Trailer & New Posters

14 April 2014 2:32 PM, PDT

She’s currently known for Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games but I always remember Elizabeth Banks for her small, brilliant, role in The 40-year Old Virgin and an awesome turn as Avery Jessup in 30 Rock. Today we celebrate the funny lady in this first one sheet poster, alongside that great trailer, for Walk Of Shame in which she co-stars with James Marsden.

Banks plays Meghan Miles, a reporter who dreams of becoming a news anchor. However, her life is somewhat compromised after a one-night stand leaves her stranded in downtown L.A. without a phone, car, ID or money – and, so we’re told, has only 8 hours to make it to the job important for that big-time position. Banks is already a proven comedy actress, so we’re looking forward to seeing her (and no doubt various people) trying to find her way through the day for this film »
