The cast also includes Mark Strong, Jason O'Mara, Guillaume Canet and Sam Keeley and comes from producer Alan Moloney (Brooklyn, Albert Nobbs, Byzantium), director Richie Smyth and writer Kevin Brodbin.

First Trailer for Stephen Gaghan's 'Gold' with Matthew McConaughey

7 September 2016 9:18 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"For better or worse, the ride had begun. And what a ride..." The Weinstein Company has debuted the first trailer for the film called Gold, the latest from screenwriter Stephen Gaghan, who also directs. Gold stars Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, and Édgar Ramírez as Michael Acosta, two businessmen who team up to search for gold in Indonesia. It's based on the 1993 Bre-x Mineral Corporation mining scandal, and almost feels like a Wolf of Wall Street sequel in a few ways. The cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Joshua Harto, Timothy Simons, Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bruce Greenwood, Bill Camp and Rachael Taylor. This looks solid, but there's a wacky side to it I wasn't expecting. It might be fun to watch. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Stephen Gaghan's Gold, originally from Vulture: Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey), an unlucky man, teams-up with geologist Michael Acosta (Édgar Ramírez) to »

First Look at New Pinhead in Hellraiser: Judgment

26 July 2016 6:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Next year will mark the 30th Anniversary of the original Hellraiser, director Clive Barker's scary classic that is still beloved by horror fans to this date. Nine sequels were spawned off of this original classic, but the franchise hasn't seen its best days, with the last installment, Hellraiser: Revelations, going straight to DVD in 2011, believed to be shot only so The Weinstein Company could keep the rights to the name. Next year, the series will scream back to life once again with Hellraiser: Judgment. Today we have a new photo from this thriller, featuring Pinhead (Paul T. Taylor) and the new villain known as The Auditor.

Bloody-Disgusting has this first look at The Auditor, although we don't know who is playing this character quite yet. The Auditor was described in a casting call as "the accountant from hell," who comes to Earth to study a persons sins, "before passing »

Watch: Second Trailer for Panamanian Boxer Movie 'Hands of Stone'

20 July 2016 8:18 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This is inexplicable!" The Weinstein Company has unveiled the full-length, official trailer for Hands of Stone, one of the two major boxing movies this year (the other being Miles Teller's Bleed For This). The film tells the true story of professional boxer Roberto Durán, played by Edgar Ramirez, who hails from Panama. Durán fought predominantly during the 80s and is still considered one of the greatest boxers of all-time, earning the nickname "Hands of Stone" during his career. The cast includes Robert De Niro as trainer Ray Arcel, plus Usher Raymond IV as Sugar Ray Leonard, Ana de Armas, Ellen Barkin, and John Turturro. The first teaser didn't show much, but this one gives us a good look at what to expect in this story about a legendary boxer. It seems as much about Durán as it does about Sugar Ray Leonard, too.

Underworld 5 Delayed Until Early 2017

30 June 2016 6:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, Screen Gems released the first teaser poster for Underworld Blood Wars, although it didn't featuring returning star Kate Beckinsale or any of the other cast members. Since the release date had already been set for October 14, most assumed that the first trailer was just around the corner, but the studio still hasn't released any footage as of yet. Today we found out why, with Screen Gems officially pushing the movie from October 14, 2016 to January 6, 2017.

Variety reported on the release date shift, but there was no reason given for why the date was pushed into 2017. In its new date on January 6, 2017, Underworld 5 will be going up against The Weinstein Company's Amityville: The Awakening, starring Bella Thorne and Universal Pictures' Mena, starring Tom Cruise. The first weekend of January is typically quite slow at the box office, but that could change next year, with three high-profile projects hitting theaters. »

Watch: Official Trailer for Creepy 'Clown' Horror Produced by Eli Roth

26 May 2016 4:58 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Lure people out of the villages into its cave with his white face and red nose..." The Weinstein Company has debuted a trailer for the horror film Clown, which is directed by Jon Watts, the filmmaker now set to direct the next Spider-Man movie. It's actually based on a fake trailer that Watts originally made in 2012 that included fake credits for producer Eli Roth. Roth actually saw the trailer, got involved, and helped them make a feature version and this is the final product. The concept is about a clown suit that a father finds that when he puts it on turns him into an evil child-eating clown, which reminds me a bit of Santa Clause or The Mask (though this is much, much more sinister). The cast includes Andy Powers, Laura Allen, Peter Stormare, Christian Distefano, Chuck Shamata, and Elizabeth Whitmere. See both trailers below. Here's the official release »

Director Lee Daniels Leaves Richard Pryor Biopic

8 May 2016 6:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lee Daniels has left the directing gig for the Weinstein Company’s Richard Pryor biopic.

TWC is seeking another director for the project “Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said?” in order to begin shooting in October. The cast includes Mike Epps as Pryor, Oprah Winfrey as his grandmother and Kate Hudson as Pryor’s widow Jennifer Lee Pryor.

The script has been written by Bill Condon. The title of the movie is taken from Pyror’s Grammy-winning live album, released in 1975.

TWC had no comment and Daniels’ rep did not respond to a request for comment. Sources indicated that Daniels, the showrunner for Fox’s hit series “Empire,” was not able to fit the movie shoot into his schedule.

Daniels had worked with TWC on the 2013 film “Lee DanielsThe Butler,” which had a successful run with more than $175 million in worldwide box office.

Michael Keaton Creates McDonald's in First Trailer for 'The Founder'

21 April 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There should be McDonald's everywhere! Franchise the damn thing!" This looks like it might be pretty damn good. The Weinstein Company has debuted the first trailer for The Founder, from director John Lee Hancock, starring Michael Keaton as McDonald's founder Ray Kroc. The story is actually about how Kroc sort of "stole" the business right out from under the McDonald brothers, played by Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch, who originally came up with the idea for a fast food burger joint in the 1950s. The cast includes Laura Dern, Linda Cardellini, Patrick Wilson and B.J. Novak. Keaton's performance doesn't seem better than his last few roles, but the film looks like it's definitely worth seeing when it opens.

Intouchables Remake Eyes Bryan Cranston And Kevin Hart For Key Roles

30 March 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite several false starts, it looks as though The Weinstein Company’s Intouchables remake is beginning to set the wheels in motion today, with Deadline reporting that Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart are in negotiations to headline.

It should be noted that, while neither deal is signed and sealed at the time of writing, talks are reportedly at an advanced stage, as The Weinstein Company is eager to fire up production on its remake of Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano’s French dramedy during the summer. Prior to today’s announcement, both Colin Firth and Tom Shadyac had flirted with key roles in the retelling. Elsewhere, citing sources close to the production, Variety claims that Simon Curtis has closed a deal to helm the western remake.

First released in 2011 by TWC, Intouchables has been ripe for the remake treatment ever since it pulled in a respectable $416 million overseas.

Such success »
