Tim Burton's upcoming drama, Big Eyes, now has an eye-popping debut trailer. The film, out on Christmas Day, tells the true story of Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), whose striking portraits of children with massive eyes became a sensation in the Fifties and Sixties – though her husband, Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), took all the credit for her work, claiming no one would buy art created by a woman.
The trailer, released by The Weinstein Company, establishes the film's engaging arc – from Margaret's early development as a painter to her »
The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for Tim Burton’s highly-anticipated drama, “Big Eyes,” which opens Christmas Day. Starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz, “Big Eyes” tells the real-life story of Margaret Keane and her husband Walter Keane, who was credited with revolutionizing popular art in the 1950s and 1960s with portraits of waif-like children with huge eyes although it was Margaret who was the real, uncredited painter.

Next up to receive the televisual treatment from King’s vast back-catalogue is the short story The Things They Left Behind.
The aftermath of 9/11 is where the main plot of The Things They Left Behind takes place, with the story focusing on a duo of detectives as the central characters.
In this new golden age of television that we are currently living in, the television industry is poaching some of cinema’s greatest minds more than ever to create their own long form stories after being restricted to the hour and a half to maximum four hours that film allows. The gap is getting increasingly small between the two in terms of quality, and some would argue that TV has already overtaken film in some respects.
Steven Soderbergh, Guillermo del Toro, Eli Roth, Martin Scorsese, and Lars Von Trier have or are about to make the leap from the silver screen to the small screen with The Knick, The Strain, Hemlock Grove, and the upcoming Shutter Island prequel and The House That Jack Built. They’re not the first major filmmakers to create a show; both Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch famously did so with Alfred Hitchcock Presents »

Update: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just won't die, and hopefully the new cast will give it the breath of life it needs to make the parody film work. Lily Collins is now out, but Lily James (the new Cinderella) is in. Other new cast members include Sam Riley (Maleficent), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Douglas Booth (Romeo & Juliet) as Mr. Darcy's friend Bingley and Emma Greenwell ("Shameless") as Bingley's sister, and Jack Huston (Kill Your Darlings) as the handsome Lt. Wickham. It hasn't been clarified if Riley is playing Mr. Darcy or if that role has yet to be cast.
May 2, 2013: Lily Collins (Mirror, Mirror) will star in Pride, Prejudice and Zombies and, in doing so, brings the project back from grave. Burr Steers (17 Again) will direct, which - if you're counting - makes the project's the fifth director. The movie is based on Seth Grahame-Smith's reimagining of »

With the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' finally firing on all cylinders the project from director Burr Steers ('Igby Goes Down') has managed to nab another cast mate. 'Noah' star Douglas Booth (below), who played the eldest lad Shem in Darren Aronofsky's biblical vision, will take the role Mr. Bingley. Booth will line up alongside Sam Riley, Lily James ('Downton Abbey') and the ever gorgeous Bella Heathcote ('Dark Shadows'). The British actor can also be seen next year in the Wachowski brothers latest sci-fi epic 'Jupiter Ascending'. »

Eva Green never let her role as a Bond Girl typecast her, and, today, the actress is working more than ever.
After getting her start in an erotic Bertolucci film and breaking out in 2005's "Casino Royale," Green has played one captivating role after another. She was a standout in Tim Burton's poorly received "Dark Shadows" (2012) opposite Johnny Depp and is currently earning rave reviews for her mysterious and supernaturally-charged Vanessa in Showtime's "Penny Dreadful." This summer, she can be found as the sexy and manipulative Ava in Frank Miller's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For."

Arriving across the Us tomorrow is the highly anticipated action noir follow-up 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'. It's been 9 years since we last dipped into the live-action pages of Frank Miller's cult graphic novel and now Miller has reteamed once more with Robert Rodriguez to co-direct this sexy, slick, and violent sequel. Three new clips from the movie have been released each focusing on different characters from the comic book action thriller. The finely figured Eva Green ('Dark Shadows'), the haggered mush of Josh Brolin, the beaten up Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the intimidating Powers Boothe and the colourful Julia Garner ('The Last Exorcism Part II') are all spread out across the trio of clips which you can view below. Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson ('Trance'), Jaime King and Jessica Alba amongst many other also star. »
It may be in 3D this time around, but Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s monotone, monochrome comicbook universe feels flatter than ever in “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.” Rare indeed is the movie that features this many bared breasts, pummeled crotches and severed noggins and still leaves you checking your watch every 10 minutes. But that’s the dubious accomplishment of this visually arresting but grimly repetitive exercise in style, set against a sordid neo-noir landscape populated almost exclusively by tormented tough guys and femme-fatale fetish objects. Nearly a decade after the first “Sin City” grossed more than $158 million worldwide, it’s doubtful whether the directors’ overlapping fanbases can muster the same level of excitement for a picture about which the best one can really say is, “It sure beats ‘The Spirit.’ ”

An unnecessary sequel that’s empty and arduous, little more than vignettes on vengeance and cruel parades of sociopathic power performed as gleefully ultraviolent shadowplays. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film
I’m “biast” (con): didn’t see a need for a second
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
There’s the nihilism of Sin City. A place where wounded men have to remind themselves to “never let the monster out,” and a woman can “makes slaves of men,” and even “good men” are turned on by a woman’s tale of rape (which she invented, of course, because this is Sin City, where you can’t trust a dame). A place where men are nothing but how they can use their rage and women are nothing but how they can use their bodies.
And that’s none of it nice. »

The 51-year-old Dark Shadows actor will appear in Smith's action-adventure movie alongside his real-life daughter Lily-Rose Depp.
Smith's daughter Harley Quinn Smith will also act alongside the Depps, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Written by Smith, the film centers on 15-year-old yoga enthusiasts Colleen Collette (Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Smith) who have an after-school job at a Manitoba convenience store called Eh-2-Zed.
But when an ancient evil rises from beneath Canada's crust and threatens their big invitation to a Grade 12 party, the Colleens join forces with legendary man-hunter Guy Lapointe (Depp) to fight for their lives with.
The film is being labelled a "comic book movie". It will be Smith's follow-up to Tusk, the »
At 17, Chloe Grace Moretz is the It girl for movie geeks, thanks to her Comic-Con-approved resume of haunted houses (2005’s “The Amityville Horror”), vampires (2010’s “Let Me In” and 2012’s “Dark Shadows”), shy girls with secret powers (2013’s “Carrie”) and her breakout role as foul-mouthed avenger Hit-Girl in 2010’s "Kick-Ass" and its 2013 sequel. This Friday brings a romantic melodrama that takes direct aim at female devotees of young-adult fiction. In “If I Stay,” based on Gayle Forman’s popular novel, Moretz is a young cellist who must choose between life and death after falling into a coma following a tragic car accident. With Ya adaptation “The Giver” doing middling business with an estimated opening weekend gross of $12.7 million, the door is open for “If I Stay” to be a keeper if it pleases the book’s fan base as well as the underserved female audience. Signature line: “Okay you c**ts, »

Is Johnny Depp a movie star anymore? He is certainly famous, but he doesn’t have the box office clout he used to. The actor consistently does well internationally, but in the States, he hasn’t opened a major release in years, at least one that wasn’t already an established brand. Transcendence, The Lone Ranger, The Tourist, Dark Shadows and The Rum Diary all bombed here. Of course, the quality of those titles aren’t up there with his finer films, so that’s a slight hindrance. Maybe all Depp needs is simply a really good movie to win back moviegoers. Reuniting with writer/director David Koepp is a step in the right direction. The two collaborated on 2004′s Secret Window, which is an especially good Stephen King adaptation. It’s also one of the last times Depp pulled off playing an average joe. For some reason he couldn’t do the same in The Tourist and »

The actor has been cast as George Wickham in the mashup movie, which was recently put back on track with the addition of three cast members.
James will play heroine Elizabeth Bennett, while Riley will star as Mr Darcy, and Heathcote as one of the Bennett sisters.
According to Deadline, the film will enter production in September after Cross Creek Pictures acquired the domestic rights to the film.
Huston will start work on the film when he completes filming on the big screen adaptation of Nicholas Sparks's Longest Ride, which is being helmed by George Tillman. »
One of the books that started the mash-up fad has been in development for quite some time. Based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic, the film sees an old fashioned romance blossom in a world populated with the undead. The books have received mixed reviews, with many saying the story doesn’t get past the joke title, but there’s still a lot to enjoy, although my personal favourite would have to be Sense And Sensibility And Sea-Monsters. Writer Grahame-Smith has already entered the world of film with a script for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows and an adaptation of his own book Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.
Jack Huston has now been cast as George Wickham, joining the already cast Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy, and Lily James and Bella Heathcote as Elizabeth Bennet and one of her sisters. Igby Goes Down Director Burr Steers helms »
