IFC Films has set loose, via Digital Spy, this new UK trailer for writer/director David Lowery’s ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints.’ Starring the likes of Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Ben Foster and Keith Carradine, the film is penciled in for an August 16th release in the US and September 6th bow in the UK.
Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), an impassioned young outlaw couple on an extended crime spree, are finally apprehended by lawmen after a shootout in the Texas hills. Although Ruth wounds a local officer, Bob takes the blame. But four years later, Bob escapes from prison and sets out to find Ruth and their daughter, born during his incarceration. Set against the backdrop of 1970′s Texas Hill Country, director David Lowery paints a poetic picture, evoking the mythology of westerns and saturating the dramatic space with an aching sense of loss. Featuring powerful performances by Affleck, Mara as well as Ben Foster and Keith Carradine, AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS is a story of love, motherhood, and searching for peace while faced with an unrelenting past.
Working Title has revealed this new Brazilian poster for Ron Howard’s Formula One racing drama, ‘Rush.’ Set for a September 13th release in the UK and September 20th bow in the US, ‘Rush’ centers on the 1970s rivalry between Austrian driver Niki Lauda and British driver James Hunt. ‘Inglorious Basterds’ star Daniel Brühl is playing Lauda with Chris Hemsworth taking on the role of Hunt. The likes of Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader) co-star. Helmed by Oscar-winner Ron Howard, the script for ‘Rush’ is by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen).
Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda. The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. Also starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader), Rush is produced by Andrew Eaton (A Mighty Heart), Howard, Academy Award® winner Brian Grazer (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind), Eric Fellner (Senna, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Morgan and Brian Oliver (Black Swan) and executive produced by Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media, Todd Hallowell and Tim Bevan. Universal Pictures will distribute the film in North America.
ToHeavenOrHell has put together this cool fan-made banner poster for the hugely anticipated ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up/Superman vs Batman movie (you can check out the poster in hi-res here). ‘Man of Steel’ director Zack Snyder recently announced that he’s bringing together the two most iconic Super Heroes of all time – Batman and Superman – for the first time on the big screen. The Comic-Con announcement saw Snyder asking Harry Lennix (General Swanwick in ‘Man Of Steel’) to read an excerpt from Frank Miller’s graphic novel ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ before an image of the Superman logo, backed by the Batman symbol, flashed on the big screen. ‘Man of Steel’ has taken in more than $630 million at the worldwide box office to date, and climbing. Along with its star, Henry Cavill, the upcoming film brings back the likes of Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The new Batman has yet to be cast. Snyder is co-writing the story with David S. Goyer, who will then pen the screenplay. Production is expected to begin in 2014, with an anticipated release date in Summer 2015.
For those that aren’t already aware, the self-contained world of Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy will be left behind, and Zack Snyder’s Superman movie, ‘Man of Steel,’ will begin to open up a DC Movie Universe. A few weeks back Christian Bale reiterated that he won’t be reprising his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the future DC Movie Universe. “We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy,” says Bale. “Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time. And we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying ‘We’re about to make the third.’ We never really knew if we were going to get to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well.” Expect news about the upcoming film shortly.
The Wrap bring word that Vanessa Hudgens is in early talks to join the cast of Sony Pictures’ ‘The Kitchen Sink,’ which has also added Denis Leary. Robbie Pickering (Natural Selection) is directing from a 2010 Black List script by Oren Uziel, who Sony recently hired to write ‘Men in Black 4′ and rewrite ’22 Jump Street.’
Described as a monster mash-up movie in the vein of ‘Zombieland,’ the story follows a group of teens who form an unlikely alliance with vampires and zombies in order to take on an alien army. The likes of Nicholas Braun, Mackenzie Davis, Josh Fadem and Chris Zylka also star. Vanessa Hudgens is in early talks to play a popular teen who finds herself in danger when aliens invade her small town, which counts Denis Leary’s character among its wealthiest and smartest – if not exactly friendly – residents.
‘Evil Dead’ Remake Director Fede Alvarez Co-Writing & Helming A Top Secret Sci-Fi/Action Film ‘Machina’
According to Heat Vision, Fede Alvarez, who directed the blood-soaked remake of ‘Evil Dead,’ is moving forward with a sci-fi action project titled ‘Machina.’ Story details are being kept under wraps. It is known, however, that Alvarez will co-write the script with his partner Rodo Sayagues. Alvarez is also attached to direct.
Fede Alvarez is the South American director who caught Hollywood’s attention with the short film ‘Panic Attack,’ which featured giant robots attacking Montevideo, Paraguay. That garnered him deal with Sam Raimi’s Ghost House production banner to develop and direct an original project. While Alvarez was developing that project, he was offered by Raimi the chance to direct a remake of the filmmaker’s classic horror flick, ‘Evil Dead.’ Evil Dead’ was released earlier this year and grossed almost $100 million worldwide on a budget of $17 million. Check out ‘Panic Attack’ below.
Mista-M has put together this brilliant artwork for ‘The Wolverine,’ which is out in cinemas now. Mista-M’s description for the piece is as follows: “Wolverine suited up. I really enjoyed the movie it was a nice change of pace from the “epic” scope of most Comic Book Movies. Hugh Jackman has really grown into the character and Mangold brought a nice touch to the film. I was actually working on (or am working on?) a Man of Steel piece that got a bit too frustrating when I decided to do this. Experimenting with textures, and heavy use of black as well as the perpetual quest to improve my drawings and colouring. This almost had a totally different colour scheme: red,white and black as well as some cherry blossoms in the foreground but I decided to instead throw in some hopefully subtle reference to Logan’s traditional attire. The cherry blossoms turned out to be overkill for this but I think they would have worked with the other colour scheme because I wanted the them to be blood red.”
Alongside Hugh Jackman as the titular character, ‘The Wolverine’ stars Hiroyuki Sanada as Shingen, Hal Yamanouchi as Yashida, Tao Okamoto as Mariko, Brian Tee as Norubo Mori, Will Yun Lee as Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai, Rila Fukushima as Yukio, and Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper. ‘The Wolverine’ is directed by James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, Knight and Day), while the script is by ‘The Usual Suspects’ scribe Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback.
