StudioCanal has revealed this new trailer for Jonathan Glazer’s (Sexy Beast, Birth) soon-to-be-released ‘Under The Skin.’ In search of loners, Laura (Scarlett Johansson) drives around the exquisitely moody landscapes of the Scottish highlands. She’s an alien, sent from afar and equipped with enough human language and awesome seductive power to capture, destroy and presumably send home human males. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Glazer and co-writer Walter Campbell adapt Michael Faber’s acclaimed novel of the same name.
‘Under The Skin’ has already been critically-acclaimed at the Venice, Toronto and London film festivals. The score for the movie, which has also received lots of praise, is by Mica Levi. The film opens in the UK on March 14th and in the US from April 4th. ‘Under The Skin’ is a Film4 and BFI presentation, in association with Silver Reel, Creative Scotland and FilmNation Entertainment.
Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, ‘Winter’s Tale’ is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. The film stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, and Oscar winners Jennifer Connelly, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint and Russell Crowe. The film marks the directorial debut of Academy Award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), who also wrote the screenplay, based on the acclaimed 1983 novel by Mark Helprin. ‘Winter’s Tale’ opens on February 14th in the US and February 21st in the UK.
What in particular was it about this story and your character’s predicament that grabbed you when you first read the script?
Colin Farrell: For me, the level of intelligence in it is very present and very real. But the most significant thing about the story is the emotional world that it lives in, it’s not contained by the corporeal or quotidian reality that we live in everyday. I loved the script; it was a very unique read. It felt like a throwback, an old fashioned tale imbued with a wealth of naivety and innocence and love. It was something I had never done before. I had known Akiva for 10 or 12 years and when he told me about it, that was it really. It was incredibly moving and very, very beautiful, and a real old fashion love story – sweeping love story.
Total Film has unleashed these two character posters for Darren Aronofsky’s epically-scaled retelling of the biblical story, ‘Noah.’ Set for a March 28th release in the US and a April 4th bow in the UK, Ray Winstone will play the role of the nemesis to Russell Crowe’s eponymous hero. Emma Watson plays Ila, a young woman who develops a close relationship with Noah’s son, Shem. That role will be played by Douglas Booth, with Logan Lerman playing Noah’s other son, Ham. Jennifer Connelly plays Noah’s wife, Naameh. Anthony Hopkins is playing Methuselah, while Kevin Durand is playing a giant who helps Noah and his family. The likes of Dakota Goyo, Nick Nolte and Madison Davenport co-star.
Darren Aronofsky is the man behind some of my favorite films of the last twelve years in ‘The Wrestler,’ ‘The Fountain,’ ‘Requiem for a Dream,’ ‘Pi’ and ‘Black Swan’ – fingers crossed ‘Noah’ adds to that list. ‘Noah’ is Aronofsky’s follow up effort to the Oscar-nominated and hugely profitable ‘Black Swan,’ which grossed $315 million worldwide on a $12 million budget. The synopsis for ‘Noah’ is as follows: “NOAH is a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood.”
According to various sources, Hollywood icon Shirley Temple died on Monday (February 10th) at her home in Woodside, California, from natural causes. “She was surrounded by her family and caregivers,” a statement said. Temple found fame as a young girl in the 1930s in films like ‘Bright Eyes,’ ‘Stand Up’ and ‘Cheer and Curly Top.’ After retiring from films in 1950 at the age of 21, Temple returned to the public eye as a Republican candidate for Congress and as a US diplomat. She accepted the Screen Actors Guild Awards life achievement award in 2006
Her family issued the following in a statement: “We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and most importantly as our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and adored wife for 55 years of the late and much missed Charles Alden Black.”

Jai Courtney & Boyd Holbrook Eyed For Kyle Reese Role In ‘Terminator: Genesis’; Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke & Arnold Schwarzenegger Star
Deadline are reporting it’s between Jai Courtney and Boyd Holbrook to play Kyle Reese in the upcoming ‘Terminator: Genesis.’ In the 1984 original, that character, played by Michael Biehn, is sent back in time to protect Sarah Connor and ends up being the father to the savior of the future, John Connor. Courtney is coming off ‘Jack Reacher’ and ‘A Good Day To Die Hard,’ and will next be seen in ‘Divergent.’ He recently shot the Angelina Jolie-directed ‘Unbroken’ and Russell Crowe-helmed ‘The Water Diviner.’ Holbrook’s upcoming films include the David Fincher-directed ‘Gone Girl,’ the Scott Frank-helmed ‘A Walk Among The Tombstones’ and the Gavin O’Connor-directed ‘Jane Got A Gun.’
Emilia Clarke and Jason Clarke are already on board to play Sarah and John Connor, with Arnold Schwarzenegger expected to return to his iconic role. Alan Taylor, who worked with Clarke in the HBO series ‘Game Of Thrones,’ is directing. No plot details have been released yet, but a time travel element is probably expected since Emilia Clarke and the guys eyed for the Kyle Reese role are younger than Jason Clarke.
