As we all wait patiently for the Godzilla trailer to drop tomorrow, USA Today got its claws into the very first official stills from the flick, one of which features Big G himself getting a rocket-sized headache! Check 'em out!
“To me, he’s like a force of nature, like the wrath of God or vengeance for the way we’ve behaved,” Edwards tells the publication. “If this really happened, it would be like Sept. 11. I want it to be epic. I want to get the hairs on the back of your neck up.”
They also confirm that the Monster Island conceit of the 1968 Godzilla flick Destroy All Monsters also plays into Edwards’ film, with its exploration of mankind having to deal with a reality full of huge, deadly behemoths — the director teases that there is more than just Godzilla smashing around.

The first official trailer for Monsters director Gareth Edwards' Godzilla is to be released tomorrow afternoon, and today the viral site www.MutoResearch.net has teased the return of the iconic kaiju. For those yet to visit the site, it seems to be a pseudo-government research website with five garbled clips teasing the destruction. Check them out here...
Meanwhile, thanks to USA Today, we also have three first look images, including a teasing shot of the King of the Monsters...
And speaking to USA Today, Edwards discussed his approach to the character of Godzilla: "To me, he's like a force of nature, like the wrath of God or vengeance for the way we've behaved... If this really happened, it would be like September 11. I want it to be epic. I want to get the hairs on the back of your neck up. Godzilla is the closest thing to »

An epic rebirth to Toho's iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world's most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Stars: Ryan Gosling, Kristin Scott Thomas, Vithaya Pansringarm, Gordon Brown, Yayaying Rhatha Phongam, Tom Burke, Sahajak Boonthanakit, Pitchawat Petchayahon, Charlie Ruedpokanon | Written and Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn
Written and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Bronson), Only God Forgives was released earlier this summer to critical acclaim, but a mixed response from audiences across the globe. Some found the dark, mysterious and artistically minded style and pacing of the film to be beautiful, creepy, entertaining and thought provoking, while others found it to be patronising, obnoxious and, dare I say it, hollow.
It takes a certain kind of film to divide opinion so heavily, and this film is that certain kind of film. Winding Refn, here, has crafted a surrealist thriller that uses its long and personal shots of violence and landscape to fill in for its purposeful lack of dialogue. The cast is a remarkable assembly, with Ryan Gosling at the forefront, »

Marrakech — Attending the Marrakech Film Festival to receive a career tribute and present her latest film, Eric Poppe’s “A Thousand Times Good Night,” French thesp Juliette Binoche took the time to sit down with a handful of film journos at the Mamounia Hotel.
In “A Thousand Times Good Night,” Binoche – one of Gaul’s best-known actresses, whose credits include “Chocolat,” “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” and “The English Patient,” stars as a top war photographer torn between her family and her passion for her work.
Variety: While working on this film, how did you relate with the character you’re playing and what questions did it spark?
Binoche: I met with a war photographer who decided to stop, because it was too hard. Putting himself in such a dangerous place, there’s a moment where you think about your life, about why you need to go there. You can »

Gojira, Aka Godzilla: King of the Monsters, first came out in 1954. It seems that Gareth Edward’s new interpretation will also have scenes set in that same year. Cinematographer Seamus McGarvey gave an interview in the new tie-in book “Godzilla with Light & Sound”, and in his discussion about making the film, he spilled the beans about a section of the film taking place in 1954.
McGarvey says, “On ‘Godzilla’ I used the old C series anamorphic lenses, and for the section in 1954 I used really old vintage lenses from the early 1960s. They took the edge off of the very vivid, sharp sensors, and gave it a distant period feel.”
Will these 1954 scenes connect the new Godzilla film to the original somehow? »

Diana is in select theaters now.

The film Diana takes audiences into the private realm of one of the world’s most iconic and inescapably public women — the Princess of Wales, Diana (two-time Oscar® nominee Naomi Watts) — in the last two years of her meteoric life. On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of her sudden death, acclaimed director Oliver Hirschbiegel (the Oscar®-nominated Downfall) explores Diana’s final rite of passage: a secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews, “Lost,” The English Patient), the human complications of which reveal the Princess’s climactic days in a compelling new light.
Hirschbiegel directs from a screenplay by award-winning playwright Stephen Jeffreys, inspired by the book Diana: Her Last Love by Kate Snell, which was in turn drawn from extensive interviews with close friends and confidantes. The result is a window into the tumultuous, change-filled period from 1995-1997, in the wake of Diana »

While Princess Diana is among the most famous people in history, her last great love, Hasnat Khan, is barely known. A deeply private man and an accomplished heart and lung surgeon, Khan was devoted to his medical career and extensive charity work when he met Diana in Brompton Hospital. He has since spoken little to the media, only publicly acknowledging his near-marriage to Diana at Lord Justice Scott Baker’s inquest into her death.
For Naveen Andrews, who takes on the role, unveiling their hidden romance was irresistible. “I’ve been wanting to do very pure love story for a long time. The script reminded me of David Lean’s Brief Encounter in that it is a very pure and simple story of two people who come together and find a connection that turns out to be impossible,” he says.
He also became enamored of the Diana he uncovered in the screenplay. »

this photoshoot adorned many a wallRalph Fiennes's original heyday in the mid 90s pre-dated 99.9% of the online movie world we know today (including the existence of The Film Experience in any of its forms) so I've probably never revealed to you how hard I crushed in the 90s. We used to cut his pictures out of magazines to hang them on the wall. My best friend had an even bigger thing for him and thus a veritable shrine. We felt mutual guilt given that this started with, you know, Ammon Goeth. (Don't judge!)
I felt a tinge of that old eroticism again watching the Grand Budapest Hotel trailer last week ("I sleep with all my friends"... friends? what about your fans, Fiennes, your fans!?!). Now, Wes Anderson movies are not usually with the sexytime so I'm guessing Gustav's bedhopping exploits are strictly diegetic.
Those old tingly feelings returned the second »

Gareth Edwards 2009 re-imagining of the kaiju genre Monsters redefined exactly what a monster movie could achieve. It was intelligent, brisk and made on an incredibly cheap budget. This caught the attention of Legendary Pictures and he is currently working on the reboot to Godzilla with Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) all leading the monster movie epic.
Over the past year or so, small tidbits of rumours revealed that Godzilla may be battling against other kaiju and now details of a new toy has leaked, which may very well confirm that Godzilla will be fighting other monsters. Godzilla looks set to come up against a spider-like, eight-legged creature called Muto. For die hard fans, this may mirror the spider creature Kumonga in the 1967 sequel Son of Godzilla.

Match of the Day and Question Time are among TV shows that send viewers to sleep, according to a new survey.
The study by hotel chain Premier Inn found that the football highlights show, which airs Saturdays at 10.30pm, is the programme most Brits doze off in front of.
The 10 o'clock news came second in the poll of 2,000 adults, ahead of Question Time and The X Factor.
Meanwhile, the Lord of the Rings trilogy were the movies most viewers fall asleep while watching. Titanic and The Hobbit made up the top three.
A spokesman for Premier Inn said: "Falling asleep in front of the TV is something we are all guilty of, even if it is our favourite TV show.
"At Premier Inn we are committed to ensuring our guests experience a good night's sleep guaranteed – so if Match of the Day or Question Time are tired Brits' TV night caps, »

Hollywood is famously unkind to leading ladies of a certain age, but this is the reverse: Testino's airbrushed portrait is sycophancy
Kate Winslet is on the cover of this month's Vogue and the photo is unbelievable.
I mean, literally unbelievable. The 38-year-old, who does Ok without Mario Testino's help, looks in this portrait like a CGI version of herself. Her hair is detachable plastic; her eyes are like marbles. Her expression, which I guess is her own, albeit under Testino's direction, is sort of mysterious with a touch of, "Help! I've been laminated!"
It is abominably, thrillingly awful.
Like the plastic surgery debate, the airbrushing debate never gets us anywhere. Who, given the kind of scrutiny these women fall under, wouldn't beg and plead for a little help from the art department? Not that they need much encouraging. It's a catch-22: the movie and beauty industries won't change »

Ralph Fiennes will be wearing several hats at this year’s Hamptons film fest, appearing not only as a star and director, but also as a mentor to younger actors.
Over the course of a career that encompasses memorable performances of such literary icons as Emily Bronte’s Heathcliff and J.K. Rowling’s Lord Voldemort, Fiennes has always been attracted to darker material and conflicted, tragic characters. In his more recent role as director, he seems to be following a similar muse, tackling the fiery part of a tragic warmonger in his bigscreen staging of Shakespeare’s lesser-known “Coriolanus.”
His second film as director, “The Invisible Woman,” screens at the festival and also hails from a hidden corner of a celebrated writer’s past in its story of a young actress, Ellen Ternan (Felicity Jones), who in the 1880s met the famous — and famously energetic and controlling — Charles Dickens and became his secret mistress. »

Where last week's New York Film Festival gala tribute to Cate Blanchett focused entirely on the actress in question, tonight's event--purportedly a similar fête for Ralph Fiennes--went the kill-two-birds approach. First, there was the expected Q&A, which was truncated more quickly than last week's for a screening of the actor-turned-director's newest film, "The Invisible Woman." As if to back up this impression, my ticket for last week's event was marked 'Cate Blanchett Tribute"; tonight's read simply 'The Invisible Woman.' For the first half hour or so, the night focused on Fiennes the actor, kicking off with a video montage highlighting his work that featured scenes from "Schindler's List," "Quiz Show," "Strange Days," "The English Patient," "Harry Potter" and, of course, his directorial debut, "Coriolanus." Fiennes admitted to Kent Jones, Nyff's director of programming and the event's moderator, that he hadn't seen several of the films for years, »
