The first two trailers have arrived online (one UK, one US) for the much buzzed about ‘The Imitation Game,’ which is penciled in for a November 14th bow in the UK and a November 21st release in the US. Starring the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Charles Dance, Allen Leech and Matthew Beard, ‘The Imitation Game’ 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.
J.J. Abrams Reveals An X-Wing On The Set Of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’; Update On The “Force For Change” Initiative
In a special video message from the London set of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ director J.J. Abrams has provided us with an update on the “Star Wars: Force for Change” initiative, which is dedicated to finding creative solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. The first “Star Wars: Force for Change” campaign intends to raise funds and awareness for UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and its innovative projects benefiting children in need. By pledging money through the Omaze fundraising platform, any eligible supporter will be automatically entered for a chance to visit the set, feature in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ and get an early screening of the film before its theatrical release in December 2015. Visit StarWars.com/ForceForChange to learn more about this charitable initiative and the work of UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and programs.
Paramount Pictures has set loose this new behind-the-scenes featurette and clip from the Dwayne Johnson-led ‘Hercules.’ Directed by Brett Ratner, ‘Hercules’ will be distributed worldwide on July 25th and co-stars the likes of Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Aksel Hennie, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal and Reece Ritchie. Based on the graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars,” the film is a revisionist take on the classic myth. I’m posting a bunch of interviews for ‘Hercules’ later this week, so stay tuned.
Open Road Films has debuted this new viral video for ‘Nightcrawler,’ in which a gaunt, desperate and wild-eyed Jake Gyllenhaal makes a plea for employment – perhaps teasing the path that sets his character in motion in the actual film. ‘Nightcrawler’ tells the story of a Gyllenhaal’s character, a young man who finds a home in the nocturnal world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles.
Opening on October 17th in the US and November 14th in the UK, the crime thriller is directed by Dan Gilroy (previous writing credits include ‘Real Steel,’ ‘The Fall,’ ‘The Bourne Legacy’) in his directorial debut. Alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, the likes of Rene Russo, Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmed also star in the film.
Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill lays out his 12% of a plan to the team in a new clip from Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ which opens in the UK and Ireland on July 31st before opening in the US on August 1st. UPDATE: 5-minute long clip added.
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is set in the far reaches of space, where a brash adventurer named Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous – and brilliantly named – Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace). In order to evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a ragtag group of misfits including Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Batista), and Groot (Vin Diesel). But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must rally his unlikely team for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

Director Peter Jackson recently confirmed that we should get some early footage from ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ “soon” – I’m guessing a teaser trailer later this month in time for Comic-Con (one can hope!). ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,’ the final chapter in Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy, will be released worldwide on December 17th.
