Ahead of the film’s premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival later this month, Miramax and Roadside Attractions have unveiled this first poster for ‘Mr. Holmes.’ From director Bill Condon, ‘Mr. Holmes’ is about a retired Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen) and is based on Mitch Cullin’s novel ‘A Slight Trick of the Mind.’ The film is the second collaboration between Condon and McKellen, who previously worked together on ‘Gods and Monsters.’ Written and directed by Condon, ‘Gods and Monsters’ won the best screenplay at the Oscars and earned McKellen a best actor nomination.
Tom Hiddleston has Tweeted the above first image from Ben Wheatley’s big screen adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s novel, ‘High-Rise.’ Also starring the likes of Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Reece Shearsmith, Peter Ferdinando, Stacy Martin and Dan Renton, the script for ‘High-Rise’ is by ‘Kill List’ and ‘A Field in England’ writer Amy Jump. A 2015 release is expected.
Set in a luxury high-rise building, J.G. Ballard’s unnerving 1975 novel follows a group of affluent tenants hell-bent on an orgy of destruction. Cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on ‘enemy’ floors and the once-luxurious amenities become an arena for technological mayhem. Human society slips into violent reverse as the inhabitants of the ultra-modern high-rise, driven by primal urges, recreate a world ruled by the laws of the jungle. The satire is a long-time passion project for producer Jeremy Thomas, who was a friend of iconic writer J.G. Ballard, who died in 2009.
Based on Jean-Patrick Manchette’s ‘Prone Gunman’ novel and a script by Peter Travis (‘Dredd’ director), ‘The Gunman’ follows Sean Penn’s Jim Terrier, an international operative who is betrayed by the organization he worked for, and must go on the run in a relentless game of cat and mouse across Europe. Helmed by ‘Taken’ director Pierre Morel and also starring Idris Elba, Jasmine Trinca, Mark Rylance, Ray Winstone and Javier Bardem, a March 20th release date has been set.
From Pathe UK comes this new TV spot for Ava DuVernay’s ‘Selma’ – without a doubt my favourite film of the last year. Out in cinemas now, ‘Selma’ is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (David Oyelowo) led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. ‘Selma’ tells the story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.
The film also stars Carmen Ejogo as Coretta Scott King, Andre Holland as Andrew Young, Omar J. Dorsey as James Orange, Alessandro Nivola as John Doar, Dylan Baker as J. Edgar Hoover, Giovanni Ribisi as Lee White, Tessa Thompson as Diane Nash, Colman Domingo as Ralph Abernathy, Stephen Root as Al Lingo, Jeremy Strong as James Reeb, Keith Stanfield as Jimmie Lee Jackson, Wendell Pierce as Hosea Williams, Tim Roth as George Wallace, Ledisi as Mahalia Jackson, Nigel Thatch as Malcolm X, Niecy Nash as Richie Jean Jackson, Stephan James as John Lewis, and Oprah Winfrey as Annie Lee Cooper. Award-winning cinematographer Bradford Young shot the film.
Closely following the release of the film’s second trailer, Universal Pictures have unleashed this new poster for the latest installment in the “Fast & Furious” franchise, ‘Furious 7.’ Continuing the global exploits of the franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of ‘Furious 7.’ James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring) directs this chapter of the hugely successful series that also welcomes back favorites Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black. The April 3rd release also features Jason Statham, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel, Djimon Hounsou, John Brotherton and a cameo by Iggy Azaela.
First Look At John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson & Isabelle Fuhrman In The Adaptation Of Stephen King’s ‘Cell’
Along with the news they’ve acquired the US rights to the film, Clarius Entertainment have set loose this first image from ‘Cell.’ The film is an adaptation of the Stephen King novel about an apocalyptic event that amounts to a pitch heard by anyone on a cell phone at a certain moment in time, which turns them into zombified beings with a herd mentality. Directed by Tod “Kip” Williams and starring John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson, Stacy Keach and Isabelle Fuhrman, ‘Cell’ will open later this year.
