GKIDS has debuted the first English-language trailer for ‘The Tale of the Princess Kaguya,’ the latest animated film from the magical folks over at Studio Ghibli. The film, the first in fourteen years from Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata, is dubbed in English by Chloë Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Darren Criss, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges, James Marsden, Oliver Platt and Dean Cain. The film opened in Japan last November to critical acclaim and a hefty box office figure.
After a long and rocky road to production, Marvel Studios today send word that principal photography has commenced today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise, ‘Ant-Man.’ Originally scheduled to begin shooting at the start of summer, the production was delayed when it was announced in May – to much disappointment – that original director Edgar Wright departed ‘Ant-Man’ due to creative differences. Peyton Reed is now at the helm on the film.
Set for release on July 17th, 2015, the film is led by Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Michael Douglas as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym. The film also includes the likes of Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, John Slattery, Gregg Turkington and T.I.. The synopsis and production details for the film is as follows.
20th Century Fox have set loose this new clip from Wes Ball’s adaptation of James Dashner’s post-apocalyptic novel, ‘The Maze Runner.’ The story centers on a teenage boy who wakes up in a strange community remembering only his first name. He soon learns they are part of a mysterious test, and finds it is his destiny to join the ‘maze runners’ and lead them to freedom. The story follows his and his fellow prisoners’ struggle to unlock the secrets of the maze that surrounds this mysterious community. Starring Dylan O’Brien, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Ki Hong Lee, ‘The Maze Runner’ is set to hit cinemas on October 10th in the UK and from September 19th in the US.
From Artificial Eye comes this new clip and UK TV spot for ‘Two Days, One Night’ (Deux jours, une nuit), the latest film from multiple Palme d’Or winners Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne. The film follows Marion Cotillard’s Sandra, a woman who returns to work after suffering from depression to find out that her colleagues have chosen to take a bonus at the expense of her job. She has just one weekend to change their minds. After opening in France and Belgium in May to rave reviews, ‘Two Days, One Night’ will open in the UK on August 22nd. Expect a US release date shortly.
Hollywood has had a pretty deplorable history of “whitewashing” throughout its entire history, and the outcry surrounding ‘Exodus: Gods of Kings’ seems like it could be the film that finally breaks the camels back – especially in envisioning ancient Egyptians and ancient Egyptian royalty as white men and women (usually drenched in bronzer). If you take a look at any Hollywood film depicting characters from the Bible or ancient Egypt, you’ll find it almost impossible to find a person of color in any of the roles. And the same can be said with something like ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,’ where all of the leads, playing characters of Persian or Middle Eastern descent, were played by white actors.
With all this in mind, Joel Edgerton was questioned about the matter by SBS, replying that he empathizes with the #BoycottExodusMovie Twitter campaign surrounding ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings.’ Asked for his opinion on the debate, Edgerton, who plays Egyptian pharaoh Ramses in the movie, said it was “not my job to make those decisions,” adding, “I got asked to do a job and it would have been very hard to say no to that job.” He continued, “I do say that I am sensitive to it and I do, I do understand and empathise with that position.”
Tom Hiddleston Posts Images From The ‘High-Rise’ Set With Director Ben Wheatley, Luke Evans & DOP Laurie Rose
After directing the first two episodes of the upcoming new Peter Capaldi-led season of ‘Doctor Who,’ Ben Wheatley, one of my favorite filmmakers working today, is currently shooting his big screen adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s novel ‘High-Rise.’ With that being the case, lead actor Tom Hiddleston has shared these two snaps from the set of the film on his Twitter account. 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.
