Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted this first trailer for the upcoming conman romance, ‘Focus.’ The film, penciled in for a February 27th, 2015 release date, follows Nicky Spurgeon (Will Smith), a professional con artist who takes a young, attractive woman (Margot Robbie) under his wing. They get involved romantically but that becomes perilous in a business where they lie and cheat for a living. The complications of the encounter haunt them when they meet up again in the future.
First Poster For The Adaptation Of ‘Testament Of Youth’ – Starring Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Hayley Atwell…
Lionsgate has unveiled this first poster for the upcoming adaptation of Vera Brittain’s iconic and powerful WW1 memoir, ‘Testament Of Youth.’ The stellar cast includes Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton, Colin Morgan, Dominic West, Emily Watson, Joanna Scanlan, Hayley Atwell, Jonathan Bailey, Alexandra Roach, and Anna Chancellor.
Alicia Vikander plays the iconic writer, feminist and pacifist, Vera Brittain, and Kit Harington plays Roland Leighton, Brittain’s fiancé. ‘Testament Of Youth’ is directed by James Kent (The Thirteenth Tale, The White Queen) and produced by David Heyman (Gravity, the Harry Potter movies, Paddington) and Rosie Alison (Paddington, The Thirteenth Tale) for Heyday Films. ‘Testament Of Youth’ opens on January 16th, 2015, but will be screening at the BFI London Film Festival this coming week.
From Fox Searchlight comes this new poster for Jean-Marc Vallée’s (Dallas Buyers Club) ‘Wild.’ The screenplay is adapted by Oscar nominated writer Nick Hornby (An Education, High Fidelity) from author Cheryl Strayed’s New York Times #1 best-seller ‘Wild,’ the book that re-launched Oprah’s Book Club 2.0.
With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. ‘Wild’ powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her. The film also stars Laura Dern, Michiel Huisman, Gaby Hoffman, Thomas Sadoski, and Kevin Rankin.
Last month, Paramount Pictures announced release dates for two sequels to the upcoming ‘Terminator’ reboot, ‘Terminator Genisys’ (my spell-check is still scratching its head with that title). The second movie in the rebooted series will open on May 19th, 2017, while the third will follow on June 29th, 2018. With those dates being so close together, it could be that they’re shooting the second and third movies back-to-back. ‘Terminator Genisys’ opens on July 1st, 2015.
During a recent chat with The Huffington Post, Jai Courtney, who’s starring in ‘Terminator Genisys’ as Kyle Reese, shed some light on the first film in the new series, “What I can say is that we start in a place we’re familiar with from the early films and then, you know, circumstances change. It somewhat shifts the course of events from that point. It’s not necessarily a sequel or a reboot. I don’t even know how you brand it correctly. We’re not remaking one of the early ‘Terminator’ movies. And it doesn’t necessarily carry on from the point where we left off.”
From the Weinstein Company comes these new behind-the-scenes featurettes for writer/director Theodore Melfi’s much buzzed about ‘St. Vincent.’ Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, Chris O’Dowd, Kimberly Quinn and Scott Adsit star in the comedic drama, which is about a young boy (Jaeden Lieberher) who finds an unlikely friend and mentor in Murray’s character, St. Vincent de Van Nuys, a misanthropic, bawdy, hedonistic, war veteran who lives next door. The film opens in the US on October 24th and in the UK from December 5th.
Maggie (McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver (Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine – the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.
Footage From ‘The Imitation Game’ Premiere At The BFI London Film Festival – Featuring Benedict Cumberbatch
The likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Mark Strong and Charles Dance battled the elements last night at the gala premiere of ‘The Imitation Game,’ which opened the 58th BFI London Film Festival. The London Film Festival runs until October 19th, closing with the Brad Pitt-led World War II drama ‘Fury.’ Check out a sizzle reel of the action below.
The pioneer of modern-day computing, Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a “nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II.” Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on. Norwegian filmmaker Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) directs from a screenplay by Graham Moore, based on the book “Alan Turing: The Enigma” by Andrew Hodges.
