New Trailer For ‘Transcendence’ – Starring Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy, Morgan Freeman…
Warner Bros. Pictures has set loose this latest trailer for Wally Pfister’s ‘Transcendence,’ the directional debut of the Oscar-winning cinematographer. The sci-fi thriller has a cracking cast in Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Cole Hauser, Kate Mara, Clifton Collins Jr, Cory Hardrict and Cillian Murphy. The film follows “three scientists, attempting work on stem cell and advanced computer technology, which will change the fundamentals of human life. Tension comes into play when they are met by protest and resistance.” Warner Bros will release ‘Transcendence’ on April 17th.
Dr. Will Caster (Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him.
From DreamWorks comes this new promo image (featuring Aaron Paul, Scott Mescudi, Ramon Rodriguez, Harrison Gilbertson and Rami Malek) and behind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming video game adaptation ‘Need for Speed.’ Directed by Scott Waugh and also starring Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Michael Keaton and Dakota Johnson, ‘Need for Speed’ is set for a March 14th release.
DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” marks an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when the authenticity of the world brought a new level of intensity to the action on-screen. Tapping into what makes the American myth of the open road so appealing, the story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country journey for our heroes — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, “Need for Speed” captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting, while bringing to life the passion for the road that has made our love of cars so timeless.
With Nas marking the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking debut album ‘Illmatic’ later this year, a half-hour series project loosely based on his life as a hip hop artist in the 1990s is getting off the ground with a deal at XBox Entertainment Studios. Titled ‘Street Dreams,’ the project, from Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell’s Electric City Entertainment (The Place Beyond The Pines), is set in the 1990s in the Queensbridge housing complex, where Nas grew up, and takes a look at music, family and the trials and tribulations of the rap game.
‘Street Dreams’ is being written/directed by Jonathan Levine, who also grew up in New York, spending his formative years in the 1990s. New York in the 90s was the backdrop for his coming of age feature ‘The Wackness,’ winner of the Audience Award at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. Levine’s previous projects also include ’50/50′ and ‘Warm Bodies.’ ‘Street Dreams’ is now being developed, with Nas - my favorite hip hop artist of all-time - involved in the writing and music. His manager, Anthony Seleh, executive produces with Patricof, Howell and Levine.
With the release of the film on the horizon, Warner Bros. Pictures has set loose this batch of clips from Akiva Goldsman’s ‘Winter’s Tale,’ which is based on the 1983 novel of the same name by Mark Helprin. Set in 1916 and present-day Manhattan, ‘Winter’s Tale’ follows the story of Peter Lake (Colin Farrell). Peter Lake is a thief who falls in love with Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), a dying girl who occupies one of the houses he breaks into. The film also co-stars Russell Crowe, William Hurt, Jennifer Connelly, Matt Bomer, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint and Will Smith, who will cameo as a judge. ‘Winter’s Tale’ opens on February 14th in the US and February 21st in the UK.
Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, “Winter’s Tale” is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. The film stars Colin Farrell (“Total Recall”), Jessica Brown Findlay (TV’s “Downton Abbey”), and Oscar® winners Jennifer Connelly (“A Beautiful Mind”), William Hurt (“Kiss of the Spider Woman”), Eva Marie Saint (“On the Waterfront”) and Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”). “Winter’s Tale” also introduces young newcomers Ripley Sobo and Mckayla Twiggs (both from Broadway’s “Once”). The film marks the directorial debut of Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (“A Beautiful Mind”), who also wrote the screenplay, based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Helprin.
