Total Film have released a new teaser trailer for Richard Ayoade's (The It Crowd, The Watch) The Double, his second directorial effort after 2010's Submarine. It's based on Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel of the same name, focusing on a government clerk descent into madness, obsessed as he is with the idea that a co-worker has stolen his identity. Jessie Eisenberg (Now You See Me, The Social Network) stars as both the protagonist and his doppelganger.
The movie still doesn't have a theatrical release date, but it has been doing the festival circuit rounds. It will be at Sundance next month and has already been screened at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year. Check out our ★★★ review of the movie here.
Oh, and here's that new trailer thingy too...

“After studying a wide variety subjects at school I narrowed them to Physics, Classics and Sculpture at college, then Architecture to degree level,” states Andy Nicholson. “After graduating I took a job at an Architectural practice in Toronto as I wanted to work in a completely different Architectural environment.” An alternative career path was taken by Nicholson. "Architecture wasn’t for me as a profession so I returned to the UK and volunteered on student films at the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield. I ended up practically sleeping on the floor there for six months whilst working on a variety of projects. Work on Commercials and Promos came to me through contacts I had made at the school; my career has developed through word of mouth and reputation from there. »

While Prisoners, Saving Mr. Banks, and The Spectacular Now have generated positive reviews at the box office, they also share one common distinction: They were all recognized on Franklin Leonard’s Black List, an annual compendium of the year’s most-liked un-produced screenplays as determined by the hundreds of executives in Hollywood that spend their lives reading scripts.
Leonard, 35, began the list in 2005 on a lark. As a young development executive about to leave for winter vacation, »

Have you all recovered from the SAG nominations? While there will be some more analysis regarding ensembles tomorrow, it’s time to turn our gaze on the Golden Globes, who are set to announce their nominees tomorrow morning. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is well-known for its boozy awards show, star loving nominations, and desire to predict the Oscars. This year’s race is no exception in any of those regards, but due to the campaigns of the studios, we could be in for one of the most anticipated Musical/Comedy races in some time.
American Hustle, Before Midnight, August: Osage County, Nebraska, The Wolf of Wall Street, Inside Llewyn Davis, Her, This is The End, Enough Said, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Way, Way Back, Don Jon, Frances Ha, The Spectacular Now, Black Nativity, About Time, Frozen, Best Man Holiday, The World’s End, The Heat, »

In the Fyc series, we're spotlighting our favorite fringe contenders. Here's abstew on Blue Jasmine's threads.
When it comes to the Oscar for Best Costume Design, the Academy's aesthetic seems rather limited. They go one of two ways: Period Piece or Fantasy. Having a tendency to confuse 'Best' with 'Most' the eventual winner is often whichever is that year's most elaborate or over-the-top design (Alice in Wonderland, really?!). Contemporary set films with well-thought-out clothes that define the character tend to get overlooked in the Season End Gold Rush. Breakfast at Tiffany's, Pretty Woman, and Clueless are all victims of this crime against fashion. So, hopefully when the nominations are announced on January 16th, Cate Blanchett's inevitable Best Actress nomination for Blue Jasmine will be joined by a nomination for Suzy Benzinger's meticulously designed costumes for the Woody Allen film.
As a Park Avenue socialite, Jasmine French's life is defined by labels. »
The film will showcase the kind of cutting-edge visual effects that have become the benchmarks of the Wachowskis’ films. Dan Glass (“Batman Begins,” “Cloud Atlas”) is the film’s visual effects supervisor, a post he has occupied for the Wachowskis since “The Matrix” Trilogy. Additionally, John Gaeta, the visual effects Oscar winner behind “The Matrix,” is contributing to the visual effects design.
Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks.

The movie, which was first announced in October 2012, is the first the actor has directed on his own and is also the debut project of Imaginarium, the performance capture studio he co-founded with producer Jonathan Cavendish.
Speaking at the Cinematic Innovation Summit (Cis) in Dubai, Serkis told ScreenDaily that pre-rendering had recently started on the feature.
"We've started pre-vis, which in the virtual world in many instances means you've already started shooting the film," he explained.
"Principal photography will take place in the middle to third quarter of next year."
The actor told summit attendees that he had directed the visualisation segments via Skype from his trailer on the set of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and that German concept artist Michael Kutsche (Alice in Wonderland, Thor, Disney's upcoming picture »
“We’ve started pre-vis which in the virtual world in many instances means you’ve already started shooting the film,” Serkis, told Screendaily on the fringes of the Cinematic Innovation Summit (Cis) in Dubai on Thursday. “Principal photography will take place in the middle to third quarter of next year.”
Serkis’ Animal Farm was first announced in October 2012, as the inaugural production of Imaginarium, the new performance capture studio co-founded by Serkis with producer Jonathan Cavendish, but there has been little news about the project since.
A speaker at the summit, Serkis told delegates that he had directed pre-vis work via Skype from his trailer on the set of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, in which he will reprise his role as rebel ape leader Caesar from Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes »
We may not have seen a single frame from X-Men: Days of Future Past yet, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t already get excited for its sequel. Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter to announce the arrival of X-Men: Apocalypse, coming in 2016.
Exhibitor Relations then followed Singer’s tweet up by confirming its release date from Fox, which is set for May 27th, 2016.
That currently puts it in direct competition with Disney and James Bobin’s Alice in Wonderland sequel, tentatively titled Alice in Wonderland: Into the Looking Glass. Tim Burton’s 2010 original took more than a billion dollars around the globe, and it would be incredibly interesting if these two blockbuster titans do end up fighting it out on their opening weekends.
Beyond the title, everything else remains speculation, and no doubt a lot of it will remain so at least until Days of Future Past has been released, »

Sensing it has a hit on its hands with “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” 20th Century Fox is prepping another installment in the blockbuster superhero franchise titled ”X-Men: Apocalypse” that will hit theaters on May 27, 2016, according to Exhibitor Relations. Director Bryan Singer confirmed the sequel in a vague tweet that read “#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!” 20th Century Fox is clearly confident about its “X-Men” franchise, as the new movie will directly compete against Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland” sequel. The first film grossed more than one billion dollars worldwide, though it was reviled by critics. “X-Men: Apocalypse” won’t kick-off the superhero season thanks. »

Universal Pictures has chosen a director for the studio’s adaptation of the Laini Taylor Ya fantasy novel Daughter of Smoke & Bone. Heat Vision reports that commercials director Michael Gracey will take the helm of the project, which revolves around a 17-year-old art student whose father sends her all over the world collecting human teeth for a mysterious purpose. The young woman soon realizes that she’s part of an ancient struggle between angels and demons, and finds herself in a love affair with a warrior angel. Stuart Beattie (Collateral) initially penned the screenplay with subsequent rewrites by Taylor, and Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and the Huntsman) will produce. Gracey had been developing a China-set take on Snow White at Disney before the Mouse House put a hold on that project. He’s expected to make his feature debut with the Elton John biopic Rocketman, starring Tom Hardy, »

Mia Wasikowska is a fantastic young actress that has a long successful acting career ahead of her. She's been in films such as Jane Eyre, Stoker, Alice in Wonderland, Lawless, and several more. She was amazing in all of those, and now she's basically going to carry a whole film on her shoulders with Tracks, which is based on an inspiring true story. This looks like a beautifully shot film, and I'll be checking it out when it is released.
Tracks is based on the inspirational and iconic true story of Robyn Davidson. Robyn's phenomenal solo trek from Alice Springs to Uluru and on to the Indian Ocean saw her traverse 2700km of spectacular yet unforgiving Australian desert accompanied only »

Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver are two of the most fascinating young actors working right now, and both have HBO to credit for their success. Wasikowska burst into the spotlight with Alice in Wonderland but had already gotten rave reviews for her striking turn on In Treatment, as suicidal gymnast Sophie. Meanwhile, Driver is the most electric part of the young adult ensemble on HBO’s Girls. His role as the ill-mannered but intelligent Adam Sackler is a constant, awkward delight. Wasikowska and Driver will be seen on the big screen in Tracks and the trailer for John Curran’s autobiographical adventure drama is now online.
Tracks tells the true story of Robyn Davidson, a woman who decided to walk through 1,700 miles worth of Australian desert to reach the Indian ocean, accompanied by camels and a dog. Wasikowska plays Davidson and Driver is Rick Smolan, a National Geographic photographer who »

An epic journey of wilderness travel and self-imposed isolation is at the heart of John Curran's ("The Painted Veil," "We Don't Live Here Anymore") new film, "Tracks." Mia Wasikowska ("Stoker," "Alice in Wonderland") stars in the true story of Robyn Davidson who in 1975 traveled 2700km across the Australian desert accompanied only by her dog and four camels.

National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver) intermediately breaks Davidson's solitude, forming an unlikely friendship.

A few months ago, The Weinstein Company picked up the North American distribution rights to John Curran's Tracks . While there's no release date for the North America yet, an Australian trailer for the film has come online and can be watched below. Starring Mia Wasikowska ( Alice in Wonderland ) and Adam Driver from "Girls," Tracks tells the true story of Robyn Davidson, who in 1977 trekked the 1,700 miles across the Western Australia desert accompanied only by four camels and her dog. It's adapted by Marion Nelson from Davidson's memoir with Driver playing the National Geographic photographer who documented Davidson's journey. The film will hit Australian theaters on March 6, 2014. »
This is where we start a war. We'll lose friends, and cause controversy. Because somewhere on this list below is something you're dying to see. In fact, you might be fanatical about some of these inclusions (Christopher Nolan fans, we're staring straight at you). But it's inevitable. And unavoidable. Hollywood is releasing hundreds of movies in 2014. Some of them will be good. Some of them will be bad. And some will be box office disasters. In compiling this list, we're not declaring that all, or even any, of these movies will be unwatchable. Some will be quite good. Maybe even a masterpiece or a classic in the making. There are a few that we're desperate to see ourselves. We really want them to succeed. But every movie here is a risk taker. And some of this shit? Hollywood should clearly know better. These are the 14 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2014.
Disney has crossed the $4 billion threshold at the 2013 global box office, the studio said Wednesday. With “Iron Man 3,” “Monsters University,” “Thor: The Dark World” and “Oz the Great and Powerful” providing the biggest boosts, the studio has posted its best year ever in terms of worldwide grosses. Last week, the studio broke its global box office-record of $3.79 billion established in 2010, when “Toy Story 3″ and “Alice In Wonderland” were the big films. The 2013 figure will keep moving higher. The Disney Animation 3D family musical “Frozen” opens Friday, and “Saving Mr. Banks,” the Tom Hanks-Emma Thompson drama about. »

Alice In Wonderland was a major surprise hit when it was released in 2010 and blew the box office away by grossing over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office. The film currently sits at the fifteenth spot in the highest grossing films of all time, which is incredibly impressive and no doubt pleased Disney executives to no end.
If the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise has taught us anything it’s that Disney loves to milk any franchise they can. So it came as no surprise when Disney announced last year that they had plans for a sequel to the fantasy juggernaut with Linda Woolverton returning to pen the screenplay. Tim Burton (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands) will not be returning to the directors chair for the second film but Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp will reprise their roles as Alice and the Mad Hatter. It’s now been confirmed that James Bobin (The Muppets, »
