Paramount Pictures has let out the hatch, via Total Film, these two new banners for the upcoming post-apocalyptic zombie flick, ‘World War Z.’ Based on Max Brooks’ fantastic novel of the same name, ‘World War Z’ features a top-notch cast in Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and David Morse. The story revolves former United Nations investigator Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop a pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Look out for the film in cinemas on June 21st. You can check out the two posters in hi-res here: Rome and Berlin. UPDATE: Sydney poster added.
The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech magic shows, first astonishing audiences by robbing a bank on another continent, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts. FBI Special Agent Dylan Hobbs (Mark Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes – and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he’s forced to partner with Alma (Melanie Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation he turns to Thaddeus (Morgan Freeman), a famed magic debunker, who claims the bank heist was accomplished using disguises and video trickery. One thing Dylan and Alma agree on is that the Horsemen must have an outside point person, and that finding him (or her) is key to ending the magicians’ crime spree. Could it be Thaddeus? Or Alma? Or could it really be…. magic?
As pressure mounts and the world awaits the Horsemen’s spectacular final trick, Dylan and Alma race to find an answer. But it soon becomes painfully clear that staying one step ahead of these masters of illusion is beyond the skills of any one man – or woman. Opening on May 31st in the US and June 21st in the UK, ‘Now You See Me’ features a top-notch cast of Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman, Common, Michael Kelly, Elias Koteas and Michael Caine. Louis Letterier (Clash of the Titans, The Transporter) directs.
What was it about your character Dylan Hobbs that appealed to you….?
Mark Ruffalo: Dylan Hobbs is a world-weary, career FBI Agent who is doggedly in pursuit of these Four Horseman, who are ripping off people – robbing banks. So, he doesn’t have any time for love or anything other than his obsession (laughs). I think he’s obsessed because he gets dogged by them, and that creates a lot of frustration in him. I think he wants to stay very close to this case and he becomes very personally involved in it over the course of the movie – deeply deeply involved in it (laughs). Dylan really does believe in the law – equal law for everybody. He’s a hard-ass about it. That is his principal motivation throughout the whole movie. But I loved his sense of humor and saltiness. My part in the movie could have been very procedural and uptight, but there’s fun there. It’s an interesting character, that’s for sure.
The Weinstein Company Acquires The Patricia Highsmith Adaptation ‘Carol’ – Starring Cate Blanchett & Mia Wasikowska
Following the recent announcement that Todd Haynes is set to direct the drama ‘Carol,’ The Weinstein Company send word that they’ve acquired US rights to the film, an adaptation of a Patricia Highsmith novel that will star Cate Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska. Haynes, the Oscar-nominated director of ‘Far from Heaven,’ will reunite with Blanchett, who starred in his acclaimed Bob Dylan biopic ‘I’m Not There’ in 2007, for which the actress won a Golden Globe.
‘Carol’ is an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novella, ‘The Price of Salt,’ which follows a relationship between two very different women in 1950s New York: a girl in her twenties (Wasikowska), who works in a department store but dreams of a more fulfilling life and a wife trapped in a loveless, moneyed marriage who is fearful of losing her daughter in the case of a separation (Blanchett). Playwright and theatre director Phyllis Nagy, who previously wrote the HBO drama ‘Mrs Harris,’ will adapt Highsmith’s story.
