This first clip has landed online for Justin Simien’s ‘Dear White People,’ which premiered at earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival to stellar reviews and a special jury award for breakthrough talent. Starring Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Kyle Gallner, Teyonah Parris, Brandon Bell, Malcolm Barrett, Brittany Curran, Justin Dobies, Marque Richardson, Dennis Haysbert and Peter Syversten, ‘Dear White People’ follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African American” themed party thrown by white students.
With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world. ‘Dear White People’ opens on October 17th in the US. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this film, so fingers crossed there’s word on a UK release date shortly (it is showing at the London Film Festival on the 9th and 10th of October).
With the release of the film closing in, Focus Features has revealed this first trailer for Kevin Macdonald’s ‘Black Sea.’ Two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law captains the cast of the suspenseful adventure-thriller, which centers on a rogue submarine captain (Law) who, after being laid off from a salvage company, pulls together a misfit crew to go after a sunken treasure rumored to be lost in the depths of the Black Sea.
As greed and desperation take control onboard their claustrophobic vessel, the increasing uncertainty of the mission causes the men to turn on each other to fight for their own survival. Joining Law in the cast are Grigoriy Dobrygin, Konstantin Khabenskiy, Sergey Kolesnikov, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Sergey Puskepalis, British Independent Film Award winner Michael Smiley, David Threlfall, and Jodie Whittaker. ‘Black Sea’ opens on December 5th in the UK and January 23rd in the US.
Speaking to the good people over at Hey U Guys, Michael Caine revealed that Daniel Radcliffe will be playing his son in the sequel to ‘Now You See Me.’ Caine gave the following info, “There’s a sequel to ‘Now You See Me’ and we’re shooting in London. I shoot in December, the whole of December in London, and my son is Harry Potter. I thought it’d be funny, me and Daniel Radcliffe as father and son.”
The sequel to the 2013’s ‘Now You See Me’ sees the return of Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. ‘Now You See Me’ grossed more than $350 million worldwide and displayed staying power throughout a competitive summer. The film pit an elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against “The Four Horsemen,” a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists. “The Four Horsemen” pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits of their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.
After recently bagging the top prize – the People’s Choice Award – at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, this new UK trailer has arrived online for ‘The Imitation Game.’ Set for a November 14th bow in the UK (it will be opening the London Film Festival on October 8th) and a November 21st release in the US, the historical thriller stars the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Charles Dance, Allen Leech and Matthew Beard. The film offers a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of Alan Turing, one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, and one of the world’s greatest innovators.
Warner Bros. Pictures has set loose these first two images from Clint Eastwood’s Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller-starring ‘American Sniper.’ In the film, Cooper plays Chris Kyle, a Navy SEAL who has the most confirmed sniper kills in U.S. military history. The book that the film is based on, ‘American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History,’ spent 18 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list and 13 weeks at #1.
Co-starring the likes of Luke Grimes, Kyle Gallner, Sam Jaeger, Jake McDorman and Cory Hardict, ‘American Sniper’ lands in US theaters in a limited release on December 25th, before expanding on January 16th (the date it also arrives in UK cinemas). The film’s first trailer will be released shortly.
Back in June, Universal Pictures announced that they moved their upcoming fifth entry in the “Bourne” franchise from August 14th, 2015, to July 15th, 2016. At the time, rumors swirled around that the reason ‘Bourne 5′ got pushed back is because Matt Damon is set to return to play his signature role as Jason Bourne. In mid-September, Deadline confirmed these rumors, adding that Damon AND director Paul Greengrass are in talks to reunite for their third film in the “Bourne” series.
According to Deadline, the intention is to make the Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass re-team the next “Bourne” film to go into production to make the July 16th, 2016 release slot, meaning that it would step in front of the spinoff sequel that is to reprise Jeremy Renner and be directed by Justin Lin (Fast & Furious series). That film, which began with the Tony Gilroy-directed The Bourne Legacy,’ remains in development. The studio intends to continue that series and to broaden its franchise base, much the way that Marvel cranks out superhero films.
