Behind-The-Scenes “The Music” Featurette For ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ – Starring Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks & Colin Farrell
Walt Disney Pictures has unveiled this latest behind-the-scenes featurette for ‘Saving Mr. Banks,’ the account of Walt Disney’s twenty-year pursuit of the film rights to P.L. Travers’ popular novel, ‘Mary Poppins’, and the testy partnership the filmmaker develops with the author during the project’s pre-production in 1961. Two-time Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks plays Disney (the first time the entrepreneur has ever been depicted in a dramatic film) alongside fellow double Oscar-winner Emma Thompson in the role of Travers.
Before actually signing away the book’s rights, P.L. Travers’ demands for contractual script and character control circumvent not only Walt Disney’s vision for the film adaptation, but also those of the creative team of screenwriter Don DaGradi and sibling composers Richard and Robert Sherman, whose original score and song (Chim-Chim-Cher-ee) would go on to win Oscars at the 1965 ceremonies – the film won five awards of its thirteen nominations.
“Trapped By A Thing Called Love” Clip From Jim Jarmusch’s ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ – Starring Tom Hiddleston & Tilda Swinton
Torrilla has debuted this new clip from Jim Jarmusch’s (Broken Flowers, Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, Dead Man) crypto-vampire love story ’Only Lovers Left Alive.’ ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ is lead by Tom Hiddleston as Adam, an underground musician who’s deeply depressed by the direction of human activities. He reunites with his centuries-long lover, Eve (Tilda Swinton), though their idyll is soon interrupted by Eve’s wild and uncontrollable younger sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska). John Hurt, Anton Yelchin and Jeffrey Wright also star. ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ opens in the UK on February 21st. Expect a confirmed US release date shortly. Source: The Playlist.
Jim Jarmusch’s wry, tender and moving take on the vampire genre features Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as a centuries-old couple who watch time go by from separate continents as they reflect on the ever-changing world around them. A Sony Pictures Classics release.
Variety are reporting that the ‘Life of Pi’ screenwriter David Magee has signed on to pen the fourth ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ film. This hiring comes two months after Mark Gordon reached a deal with the C.S. Lewis Co. to jointly develop and produce ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair.’ The three “Narnia” films have grossed a combined $1.6 billion worldwide. Magee received an Oscar nomination for his ‘Life of Pi’ adaptation and for his 2004 ‘Finding Neverland’ screenplay.
“I have always loved ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ and I endlessly imagined myself finding my own passage into Narnia someday,” David Macgee said. “All these years later, I’m getting to fulfill that wish just a little bit by writing the film adaptation of ‘The Silver Chair’ and could not be more excited about it.”
20th Century Fox has revealed this second trailer for Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s horror-thriller ’Devil’s Due,’ which is set for January 17th. After a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, a newlywed couple finds themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. While recording everything for posterity, the husband begins to notice odd behavior in his wife that they initially write off to nerves, but, as the months pass, it becomes evident that the dark changes to her body and mind have a much more sinister origin. The film stars Zach Gilford, Allison Miller and Colin Walker.
‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Website Launches With New Promo Images; Trailer Screengrab Hints At 2 Further Villains
In light of the release of the first trailer for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ Sony Pictures has updated the film’s official website with a bunch of new promo images for the superhero sequel. The trailer reveals and hints a lot if you’re familiar with the Spider-Man universe – in particular with the Sinister Six and the dealings/ulterior motives of OsCorp.
One of the most interesting things about the trailer for me was the shot of Vulture’s wings and Doctor Octopus’ tentacles (it has long been speculated that Colm Feore would be playing Vulture, although there’s no confirmation at this moment in time). That shot could of course be an easter egg for further ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ installments. Additionally, you can also listen to some of the film’s score on the website, which is being put together by Hans Zimmer, Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger, and Dave Stewart.
Magnolia Pictures has announced the US release dates for Lars von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac,’ which will be released as two full-length feature films. ‘Nymphomaniac: Part One’ will open in theaters on March 21st, 2014, and be available On Demand as of March 6th, 2014. ‘Nymphomaniac: Part Two’ will open in theaters on April 18th, 2014 and be available On Demand as of April 3rd, 2014.
‘Nymphomaniac: Part One’ is the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood (portrayed in flashback by Stacy Martin). “Part One” also stars Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier.
