A new poster for the film, which debuted over at Empire, places McConaughey on a beautiful but alien landscape and comes with the tagline, “The end of Earth will not be the end of us.” If fits nicely with the first poster’s “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.”
As the trailers and posters have shown, the planet is clearly in trouble, and it »

Following yesterday's awesome Poster Posse collection from Blurppy for this fall's release of Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan, an official poster from Paramount Pictures has debuted online. This one is a little more conventional as it merely shows Matthew McConaughey on another world, which we've seen glimpsed in the most recent trailer for the film as well. Some think that the most recent trailer showed too much, but considering it's all out of context and a Nolan movie has never been spoiled by trailers, it shouldn't be anything to worry about. Could we get one more trailer before the release? We'll see. Here's the latest official poster for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar from Empire: Watch the most recent trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar right here! Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. »

There are some directors whose work you can identify on the spot because of their films' style, look, music, or the actors involved. (Think Wes Anderson or Tim Burton.) And then there are some who can be I.D.d by recurring motifs that pop up again and again in their work. Alfred Hitchcock had a weird thing for blondes, yet compared to some of these other filmmakers' recurring obsessions, Hitch seems downright clean-cut. Let's take a look at some of our favorite directors and their … well, interesting proclivities.Christopher Nolan:Dead wives (Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception)Nolan is beloved by his fan base for the tightly calculated precision of his screenwriting and shooting styles. In that cool detachment, he may have been unaware of an increasingly disturbing trope that shows up time and again in his films: dead wives. The entire plot of Memento is driven »

Before he resurrected Batman and made us forever uncertain if we were actually dreaming, Christopher Nolan made Memento. A twisting tale of revenge told in reverse, the film was the first suggestion to many that Nolan was something really special (it was only his second feature film).
Widely regarded as one of the director’s best films (and also of the 21st Century as a whole), Memento has betrayed its indie origins and become a widely regarded masterpiece. It was incredibly strong at box office thanks to glowing word-of-mouth, but it’s on DVD where the film really exploded, becoming a must see for a whole generation of movie goers.
But what’s actually going on? Memento is intricately presented in a manner that require multiple rewatches to just pin down what’s going on, while Nolan himself has thrown irritatingly conflicting viewpoints out there that make unravelling the story incredibly tricky. »

“But no man moved me till the tide / Went past my simple shoe /And past my apron and my belt / And past my bodice too / And made as he would eat me up / As wholly as a dew…”
Whether or not this poem by Emily Dickinson, published under the title By the Sea, served as inspiration for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s new film of the same name, the spirit seems to match up with its story of a woman caught in an undertow of passion and rejuvenation while visiting a seaside village with her husband.

After the massive success of the BBC Series Peaking Blinders we’ve got the trailer for season 2. If you missed season 1, the show stars Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle and Joe Cole, and you could liken it to the British version of Boardwalk Empire (sort of!).

Check out the trailer for season 2 below. The show comes to BBC 2 in October.

London's incredibly varied architecture - encompassing Shakespearean and Victorian-era buildings, secret underground tunnels and modern skyscrapers - has seen the city double for everything from 19th century Paris in Les Misérables to outer space in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Digital Spy takes a tour of the capital to find out more…
1. Millennium Bridge, Thames Embankment
We're used to seeing tourists snapping photos and commuters walking briskly across this distinctive bridge, but on August 12 last year, onlookers stopped and gasped as a group of exotically-attired aliens ran across the suspension bridge. This was no prank or stag do, but rather a scene from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which can currently be seen taking the international box office by storm. Incredibly, the bridge was doubling for outer space, albeit with a CGI generated backdrop to hide St Paul's Cathedral and the Tate Modern.

THR caught up with Chastain at the Toronto International Film Festival, and asked her about her role in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Although her character is rumoured to be the grown up daughter of Matthew McConaughey's space-fairing lead, since that still hasn't been confirmed she plays coy with specifics -- simply stating that although she's "not a huge part" of the film, she does have a "great role".

Following his Oscar-winning performance in Dallas Buyers Club last year, Matthew McConaughey has the anticipated sci-fi drama Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan coming this fall (which could result in the actor getting yet another Oscar nod). And after that, another awards-worthy performance seems to be following next year with The Sea of Trees from Good Will Hunting director Gus Van Sant. We haven't seen footage yet, but the story follows a man who journeys into the infamous “Suicide Forest” at the foothills of Mount Fuji with the intention of killing himself. Sounds pretty powerful, right? And now we have the first photo from the film which also stars Inception and The Last Samurai actor Ken Watanabe. Here's the first photo from Gus Van Sant's The Sea of Trees from EW: The Sea of Trees is directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Elephant) and written by Chris Sparling (Buried). In the film, »

Tom Hardy has done everything from sports drama (Warrior) to sci-fi (Inception), however there's one genre the actor isn't planning on returning to anytime soon: romantic comedies. In an interview with USA Today, Hardy said "I love to do things I hadn't done before," which may explain why he starred in McG's This Means War. But Hardy goes on to say he didn't enjoy working on the film, and because of that, doesn't think »

With November Man out, excitement for Pierce Bosnan’s return to spying is at an all-time high for many James Bond fans. November Man, based on the seventh installment of Bill Granger’s book series called There Are No Spies, is about ex- CIA agent Peter Devereaux (Pierce Bosnan). While living a quiet life in Switzerland, Devereaux is ejected out of retirement for one last mission. Although the concept of the “one last mission/job” is not a new concept for Hollywood, it definitely has its place in cinema history, branching out to a wide range of reasons why our beloved characters are being pulled back into their past lives. From a retiree’s last gig, to the bad-boy-gone-good-and-then-bad-again mission, to the revenge premise, mythology of the ex-professional can surely delight and excite us to champion our heroes for one last fight. Here are scenes from ten incredible “one last job” films, »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at an up and coming A-lister, someone who’s a big star on his way to becoming an even bigger one. He’s Tom Hardy, an incredibly well respected and intense actor. It’s probably a shock to many that Hardy has yet to be cited with an Academy Award nomination (or even a Golden Globe nomination for that matter), but that speaks to how great the work is already. With another fine performance this year coming to theaters, now seems like a perfect time to take a look at Hardy, so let’s shine a spotlight on him right now! Hardy got his start when he was picked for a role in Band of Brothers, pretty much being plucked out of obscurity. He appeared in two episodes of the miniseries, which marked his debut as an actor. »

For someone with his immense range and talent, Tom Hardy has been a “one to watch” far too long. Years before he went toe-to-toe with Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Rises, he made his debut in HBO’s Band of Brothers in 2001, quickly graduated to Star Trek villain in 2002, and won the BAFTA Rising Star Award for Inception in 2011. Earlier this year, he carried an entire film, Locke, in which he just drove a car and talked on the phone.
Next year, all of that oozing charisma and alluring sense of danger that practically vibrates through his characters will »

Thanks to the latest issue of Empire, we’ve got our first look at Chris Hemsworth in Heart of the Sea, which reunites the star with his Rush director Ron Howard for an adaptation of Nathaniel Philbrick’s bestselling book and tells the true story of the whaling ship Essex, which came under attack from a giant whale (an event which would inspire the book Moby Dick) and left the crew having to resort to cannibalism to stay alive after being stranded at sea for 90 days…

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.
Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »
