Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled 17 new images for Alfonso Cuarón’s (Children Of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) ’Gravity.’ The sci-fi thriller, which stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as astronauts stranded in space after their shuttle is caught in a meteor shower, is pencilled in for a October 4th bow in 2D, 3D and IMAX.
‘Gravity’ is written by Alfonso Cuarón and his son, Jonás Cuarón. In the film, Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone–tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space. Source: The Playlist.
The Hollywood Reporter bring word that the ”Downton Abbey” star Jessica Brown Findlay has nabbed the female lead opposite Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming ‘Frankenstein.’ Paul McGuigan (Push, Lucky Number Slevin) is directing the movie, which retells the Mary Shelley horror classic from the perspective of Igor, the hunchbacked assistant to Victor Frankenstein. Radcliffe is playing Igor, while McAvoy is playing the doctor who has plans to build a human body. Findlay will play a trapeze artist who is saved by Igor after an accident, with the two becoming very close in the aftermath.
Based on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel, ‘Frankenstein’ is expected to shoot in the fall after Daniel Radcliffe’s run in the West End play ‘Cripple of Inishmaan.’ John Davis is producing the film, which is being described as a tale of friendship and redemption. The script by Max Landis (Chronicle).
UPDATE: Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo has confirmed via Twitter that the “pitch trailer” is actually footage for a videogame project that never came to be, which happened to share a name. Following the news that ‘Jurassic Park 4′ has been re-titled ‘Jurassic World’ and that the film will be released on June 12th, 2015, the following “pitch trailer” - which was apparently shown to Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy - has been released online. While producer Frank Marshall has already confirmed on Twitter that the trailer has nothing to do with the film, I think it’s pretty damn cool and worth a peep.
The video description from the person who posted it is as follows, “All I can say is this video was shown as part of Iain McCaig’s presentation at the recent Star Wars convention in Germany (he’s the fantastic concept artist and designer of Darth Maul). I can only presume it was part of a pitch for reigniting the JP movie franchise, if anyone can confirm please let me know. It was apparently shown to Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg. Mr McCaig actually said “it certainly got Steven interested in dinosaurs again…” I just think is so cool.”
Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz & Brad Pitt Featured In New Character Posters For Ridley Scott’s ‘The Counselor’
Little White Lies has revealed five new UK character posters Ridley Scott’s ‘The Counselor.’ The crime thriller features a top-notch cast in Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer and Goran Visnjic. The story for ‘The Counselor’ follows a lawyer, simply named The Counselor (Fassbender), who gets embroiled in the drug trade and ends up fighting for his life. Pitt is playing Westray, who helps Fassbender’s lawyer get hold of a $20 million stash of cocaine. Bardem is taking the part of Reiner, a criminal who brings The Counselor into the drugs trade.
The screenplay for the film comes from one of my favorite authors, Cormac McCarthy, whose critically acclaimed books have been adapted into ‘No Country for Old Men,’ ‘The Road,’ and ‘All The Pretty Horses.’ ‘The Counselor’ is set for October 25th in the US and November 15th in the UK.
In an interview released by Marvel today, writer-director Joss Whedon touched on the casting of James Spader in ’Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ who he says was his only choice, as the titular villain Ultron, “Spader was my first and only choice. He’s got that hypnotic voice that can be eerily calm and compelling, but he’s also very human and humorous. Ultron is not Hal (from 2001: A Space Odyssey). Spader can play all of the levels. He’s the guy to break The Avengers into pieces.”
Last month Marvel announced that James Spader will face off against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the villain in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ the sequel to 2012’s Marvel’s ‘The Avengers.’ The Emmy Award-winning actor will play Ultron in the Avengers’ much anticipated return to the big screen from writer-director Joss Whedon. The film comes to cinemas on May 1st, 2015.
In a recent chat with the good people over at Digital Spy, Jamie Foxx spoke about the origins of his ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ character Electro and his sympathetic backstory – which begins as downtrodden engineer Max Dillon. “I think with all of the Spider-Man villains there is a certain empathy to them. The way we crafted Electro, when he’s Max you definitely feel for him because he’s been sort of shut out and no one really cares about him. And it’s his birthday and even his mom forgot his birthday, so you will feel that. So when he does turn into Electro it’s serious venom, he really wants to hurt everybody, and when he feels like Spider-Man betrays him he really wants to hurt him bad.”
