I like to think we're pretty on top of casting news, so this one kind of came out of nowhere, but it still sounds interesting. A press release has announced that Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl (Rush) will star in Florian Gallenberger's new film, Colonia. The story takes place in Chile in 1973, and has Watson playing a young woman who must join in a cult in order to save her husband (Brühl), who has been kidnapped by Pinochet's secret police. As the press release notes, this will be Watson's first real starring role since Harry Potter (at most, she's had co-leads to this point; here it sounds like she's the protagonist and Brühl is the supporting character), so that makes this project even more exciting. Principal photography on Colombia is about to begin, and it will shoot until the end of the year. Hit the jump for the press release. »

When Daniel is abducted by General Pinochet’s secret police and carted off to a mysterious area in the south known as the Colonia Dignidad, Lena kicks off a quest to track him down.Though the man in charge of the Colonia, Paul Schafer, describes it as a charitable religious mission, it’s in fact in the grip of a cult – and Lena joins up »

Fleming: I found it interesting that audiences turned up their noses at A Walk Among The Tombstones, a thriller that had what should have been all you need for a hit — Liam Neeson on a one-sheet, holding a gun. The filmmaker Scott Frank made a throwback to the ’70s films he grew up loving. The title didn’t help: didn’t it evoke memories of being dragged to the cemetery to pay posthumous respects to Grandpa? In my view, it got maligned unfairly by critic squeamishness over grisly scenes that weren’t there. Kenny Turan called it Eli Roth torture porn, though Roth told me last week the critic told him he’d never actually watched a Roth film. »

Warner Bros. has premiered a new international trailer for Andy and Lana Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending, in order to get a jump on promoting the film's February 6, 2015 release. Back in June, you'll recall Warner pulled the plug on the film's July 18 release date, supposedly so the Wachowskis could finish effects work on the sci-fi epic, although it seems more likely in my mind, the move was a financial one, with Warner keen on wreaking havoc at the box office during the early-year doldrums. I'd love to see the Wachowskis churn out something great here, but when Warner still insists solely on using the The Matrix Trilogy to help sell the directing duo's films, I have to say I get a little disheartened. And with the film releasing so early in the year, well, you have to wonder if that's any indication of its quality. Jupiter Ascending stars Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones, »

Having pushed the film back from this summer to February, Warner Bros. has now resumed the marketing campaign for Andy and Lana Wachowski’s latest sci-fi fantasy Jupiter Ascending, with a new trailer arriving online today; check it out after the official synopsis….
Jupiter Jones (Mila 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 toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
Jupiter Ascending is set to open on February »

British star Lena Headey ('Game of Thrones') and Charles Dance (also 'Game of Thrones') are the latest to sign up for twisted Jane Austen adaptation 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'. The horror themed period mash-up based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith has been picked up for Us distribution by Screen Gems. It's been a long time coming and the projects been through all sorts of development but thankfully with Burr Steers ('Igby Goes Down') at the helm and an impressive cast setup the production should now be moving forward with some gusto. Headey (below) and Dance join Lily James ('Downton Abbey'), Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote ('Dark Shadows'), Jack Huston, Douglas Booth ('Noah') and Matt Smith ('Doctor Who'). »
Emma Watson spoke at the United Nations Headquarters on Saturday, and it had nothing to do with wizarding. The actress (Noah, the Harry Potter franchise) gave an address to mark the launch of the HeForShe campaign. The campaign is aimed at encouraging men to support gender equality. Watson, who was named a goodwill ambassador for U.N. Women earlier this year, called herself a feminist but said that the word has become "unpopular" among women because it is seen as carrying a stigma that someone is aggressive.

Based on the hit British play “Posh,” the Lone Scherfig-helmed “The Riot Club” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month (read our review here) and a new clip (via The Guardian) is here – arriving just in time as the film opens in UK theaters today – along with a ten-minute chat with the principal cast. Starring Max Irons (“The Host”), Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) and Douglas Booth (“Noah”) the film follows a pair of Oxford University freshmen (Irons and Claflin) as they assimilate into the rarified culture of the school, ending up in the exclusive Riot Club. Tensions come to a head, very bad decisions are made, and things go out of control in one night at a respectable establishment called The Bull Head. The nearly two-minute-long clip takes place before Irons and Claflin officially become members of the titular society, where the three leads are having a. »

Having recently wrapped “Fantastic Four,” in which he plays the evil Doctor Doom, Toby Kebbell may have found another bad boy role.
Based on Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel “Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ,” the epic drama follows a falsely accused nobleman who survives years of slavery to take vengeance on his best friend who betrayed him. Kebbell will play that best friend, who was portrayed by Stephen Boyd in the 1959 classic.

Jack Huston cast in 'Ben-Hur' remake? 'Boardwalk Empire' actor to follow in the footsteps of Ramon Novarro and Charlton Heston Jack Huston, best known for playing World War I veteran-turned-bootlegger-cum-assassin Richard Harrow in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, may star in the latest Ben-Hur "remake," to be jointly produced by Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. I have "remake" between quotes because officially this fourth big-screen version of the semi-biblical epic (more on that below) isn't an actual remake of either the multiple Oscar-winning 1959 Ben-Hur or its 1925 predecessor, but a direct adaptation of former Civil War general Lew Wallace's 1880 bestselling novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which happens to be conveniently in the public domain. Timur Bekmambetov, whose credits include the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller Wanted and the supernatural cult classic Night Watch, has been attached as director of what is in fact A Tale »

You know the classic "Fashion Face-Off" and the kitschy "Streetwalker or Starlet." And now thanks to Jennifer Connelly, we have a new brand new game to add to the mix! Can you figure out if those are the Shelter star's nipples we see through the lace or just an awkward placement of embroidered flowers? At first glance, we thought we were looking at the unfortunate result of a cool breeze on the Noah actress's top half, but then we found several contradictions. First, it's way too hot inside a full leather dress for a case of the chilly tatas. But even so, leather is way too thick of a fabric for a nip-pop even if it was somehow freezing inside the style! And then »
The film is based on Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel “Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ,” and follows a falsely accused nobleman who survives years of slavery to take vengeance on his best friend who betrayed him.
The pic is set to bow on Feb. 26, 2016.
“Ben-Hur” joins the long list of Hollywood’s recent interest in biblical stories that have either bowed or are set to bow in the next couple of years. Paramount had already seen success from this genre with “Noah,” Darren Aronofsky »
