Now they're both powerhouse behind the scenes in Hollywood, with Pitt producing films like "12 Years a Slave" and "Moneyball" and Jolie writing and directing dramas like "In the Land of Blood and Honey" and the upcoming "Unbroken." They're joining forces again on a new movie called "By The Sea," which Jolie will also write and direct. They will also produce the film. It will be a Jolie-Pitt cinematic overload!
There's not much detail about "By The Sea" except that it's an "intimate, character-driven drama." Although "Unbroken" is looking like a good horse to bet on in this year's Oscar race -- it's based on Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling book about the life of the late WWII hero, Pow, and Olympian »

A lot of people think EW writers spend their days boozing it up with stars. In the case of this week’s cover profile of actor Chris Pratt, that’s 100 percent accurate. The Parks and Recreation star already has one box office hit under his belt this year thanks to The Lego Movie, and he might well have another when the latest Marvel spectacular, Guardians of the Galaxy, arrives in theaters Aug. 1. On a break from shooting next summer’s dinosaur fourquel Jurassic World, Pratt hoisted some beers with EW’s Clark Collis in New Orleans while recounting his unlikely career trajectory. »

Following an Oscar nod for his work on American Hustle last year, Christian Bale could well be in line for similar recognition this December when Ridley Scott unveils his biblical epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings.
The film is set to retell the story of Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, and is sure to have one of the biggest scopes of any film this year.
Scott is directing from a script first co-written by Bill Coolage and Adam Cooper (Assassin’s Creed, Tower Heist), with Oscar winner Steven Zaillian (Moneyball, Schindler’s List) hired to do a subsequent rewrite.

Later tonight, the first trailer for Ridley Scott's Biblical epic Exodus: Gods & Kings will arrive. We've just gotten a first look at the film starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton as Moses and Ramses II respectively, and now the two stars are featured on some golden posters for the film arriving just before Christmas this winter. They're not all that great, to be honest, mostly because the head of Christian Bale looks poorly Photoshopped onto his body in both posters featuring the actor. Plus, we can't help but notice that Edgerton looks pretty odd as the Pharaoh on these posters, though we can't see his orange skin. Look! Here's the teaser posters for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods & Kings from Yahoo: Exodus: Gods and Kings is directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Robin Hood, Alien, Blade Runner) and written by Adam Cooper & Bill Collage (Tower Heist, Accepted), with a rewrite by Steve Zaillian (American Gangster, »

Foxcatcher has been managing a lot of hype since at least last November, and the release of the teaser trailer has caused quite a stir. The internet is throwing the name around, as well as both Channing Tatum‘s and Steve Carell‘s, connected with ideas like “Oscar contender,” and “Award worthy,” and while the trailer gives hope for a solid film, I have to wonder exactly where all the love is coming from.
To be fair, a lot of the discussion is obviously coming from people who have seen the film (it was at Cannes), but a lot of it is also coming from people who haven’t. The trailer gives us a Channing Tatum who stares very seriously, smacks himself across the face, and bashes his head into a mirror. Steve Carell is wearing a lot of latex on his face, and says, “Good,” while apparently doing a kind of Godfather impression. »

The tragic relationship between Olympic gold medalists with a multi-millionaire benefactor, John du Pont.
Based on shocking true events, Foxcatcher is a psychological thriller which tells the fascinating story of Olympic gold medal-winning brothers Mark and Dave Schultz and their tragic relationship with a multi-millionaire benefactor, John du Pont.
Foxcatcher is in cinemas January 2015. »
Sony has released two new trailers for Cannes Film Festival favourite, Foxcatcher.
The biopic, starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, follows the true-life tragic story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark and Dave Schultz. However things take a dark turn when their coach, John du Pont murders Dave.
The trailers show tension building between the trio and feature clips of some strong performances. They’re both quite similar, but trailer B seems a bit more ominous in tone. Bennett Miller won at Cannes for his direction of Foxcatcher and true life material is obviously an area he’s is comfortable with. Miller received an Oscar nomination for 2005′s Capote, which follows American author (and best mate of Harper Lee), Truman Capote during his research into the Clutter family murders for seminal novel In Cold Blood. He also turned to sports for 2011′s Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt, which focuses »

Sony Pictures Classics have released a new trailer and poster for Foxcatcher, the next movie from Moneyball director Bennett Miller. It tells the true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and his brother Dave (Mark Ruffalo) as they become involved with the erratic and eccentric millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell) after he agrees to help bankroll their entry into the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
As you can see from both the trailer and the lengthy synopsis below, things take a dark turn from there, and the film has been extremely well-received since it debuted at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. You can actually read our glowing review of Foxcatcher by clicking here.
Carell’s performance was praised, but much to the surprise of some, so was Tatum’s. There has even been talk of the 22 Jump Street actor getting some serious awards recognition for his role in Foxcatcher, »

The initial marketing push for Foxcatcher, the upcoming true story-inspired film by director Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball), has struck a decidedly unnerving and often chilling tone; the latest teaser trailer (see above) is no exception, culminating with Channing Tatum repeatedly smashing his head against a mirror. As downright strange it would’ve seemed a few years back, Tatum is now a fairly respected actor – one who’s even begun to earn accolades, for his work on Miller’s upcoming movie.
Backing up a bit - Foxcatcher tells the tale of how, in the late 1980s, competitive wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum) was recruited by billionaire heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to train a team to compete in the 1988 Seoul Olympics. However, the relationship that formed between the two men soon became destructive – fueled in no small part by their mutual obsession with ...

A second teaser for upcoming thriller Foxcatcher has been revealed.
The first Foxcatcher trailer was revealed in March.
Digital Spy recently deemed Foxcatcher to be one of the best movies premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
Foxcatcher is out in the UK on January 9, 2015 and on November 14 in the Us. »
One of the movies I’m convinced will stand the best chance of sweeping the 2015 Oscars is this fall’s Foxcatcher. Directed by talented Moneyball helmer Bennett Miller, the drama tells the true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), examining how their relationship with millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell) eventually turned deadly. It looks like a riveting, heart-rending story with stunning performances from Tatum and Carell, and I’m convinced that the Academy is going to favor it this fall.
A tense new trailer for Foxcatcher has hit the web today, focusing on Mark’s inner turmoil and hinting at the abusive relationship he had with du Pont. It’s a compelling watch that only teases the brutality and heartbreak of the Schultzs’ story.

"I want to see this country soar again..." Sony Pictures Classics has debuted a brand new teaser trailer for Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, and I would say it is indeed a must watch, it's an excellent trailer, coming in at just 60 seconds. There's an exciting intensity to it and I can't recommend the film enough, it was one of my favorites out of Cannes 2014. Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo star as wrestlers Mark Schultz and Dave Schultz, and Steve Carell plays their creepy, rich coach John du Pont, a real life story about greed and murder. This film is full of mystery and intrigue, incredible performances, it's going to be the talk of the town when it hits theaters this fall. More exceptional teasers like this and it'll be a breakout hit, too. Enjoy!

Sony Pictures Classics has released an intense new Foxcatcher trailer for director Bennett Miller’s (Moneyball, Capote) highly anticipated drama. The film tells the true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), and their troubled relationship with eccentric millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell). While many expected—and got—a standout dramatic performance from Carell when the pic debuted at Cannes, a heavy amount of praise was also heaped on Tatum’s turn as an Olympic-focused wrestler. Judging by the recent teaser poster and the focus of this fantastic new teaser trailer, Sony will be campaigning for Tatum in addition to Carell during this year’s sure-to-be-competitive awards race. Though we only see glimpses of Tatum’s performance in this new trailer, it certainly looks to be unlike anything he’s done before. Hit the jump to watch the new Foxcatcher trailer. »

On a December morning, in 2012, Steve James walked into a patient's room at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and immediately felt remorse. With his lower jaw removed from several surgeries related to a 11-year battle with cancer of the thyroid and salivary glands, Roger Ebert, the iconic film critic, was all strung up, looking rather helpless, sound asleep. "I remember looking [at him] and going, Aw shit, I dunno," the filmmaker recalls of the emotional first day of shooting Life Itself, his documentary on Ebert. "I don't know how people are going to feel about this. »

“My parents came as immigrants to Germany from Serbia, so working meant having a job that pays the bills,” remarks Branko Tomovic who has appeared in The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), Inbetween (2008) and Believe the Magic (2012). “I have been interested in art and films ever since I was a child but doing anything artistic as a job wasn’t really heard of. I can’t really blame them as every parent wants a secure life for their child. It wasn’t that my parents were not supportive but more that they didn’t know any differently. I have always been the black sheep in the family with everything that I did, so it was cool with me and have always done with my life what I thought was right.” Tomovic attended an acclaimed acting school. »
