“Protect” TV Spot For Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’ – Starring Russell Crowe, Ray Winstone, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson…
Paramount Pictures has set loose this latest TV spot 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.”

During a recent chinwag with The Wrap, Oscar-nominated costume designer Michael Wilkinson opened up about working on Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman outfit in the tentatively titled, ‘Batman Vs. Superman.’ “It’s thrilling and slightly scary prospect. It’s so important to get her right. She really deserves to be presented on-screen in her full glory. So what I do is I look at the history of how the character has been presented on the big-screen, and the small-screen, and in comic books, and graphic novels. We process it all. Then we kind of put that aside and work out what is right for our film, for the cinematic universe that our director Zack Snyder is putting together. We try and create a Wonder Woman that’s relevant for today’s audiences.”
Asked if he thought it would be realistic for her to be fighting crime in her outfit, Michael Wilkinson said, “Absolutely! I mean, you just have to look at the gladiators from ancient Rome, they did their thing in little loin clothes and shield….It works for Thor, it works for 300, so let’s see what happens.” Check out the full interview after the jump. The ’300,’ ‘Watchmen,’ ‘American Hustle’ and ‘Man of Steel’ costume designer previously said that he’s made some “tweaks” to Superman’s costume for the upcoming sequel.
Teasing an impending announcement, the film’s official Facebook page has released this latest character poster for Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’ Accompanying the poster was the following message: “Hey, Cap fans – check back soon for an exciting announcement!”
Directing the film is the team of Anthony and Joe Russo (Welcome to Collinwood) from a screenplay written by the ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ returns Chris Evans as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America, along with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. In addition, film icon Robert Redford has joined the all-star cast as Agent Alexander Pierce, a senior leader within the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is set for release on April 4th in the US and March 28th in the UK.
Warner Bros. Pictures has set loose this extended TV spot for ’300: Rise of an Empire,’ the soon-to-be-released sequel/companion film to Zack Snyder’s ’300.’ Penciled in for a March 7th release, ’300: Rise of an Empire’ stars Rodrigo Santoro returning as Xerxes, Sullivan Stapleton as Themistokles, Jack O’Connell as Calisto, Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo, David Wenham as Dilios, and Eva Green as Artemisia.
’300: Rise of an Empire’ is based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel that takes Xerxes, the Persian leader who is an antagonist in ’300,’ and turns him into more of a pivotal figure. He’s a man in search of godhood after the death of his father, battling an Athenian warlord named Themistokles. The story takes place over the course of several years, but the focal point is the battle of Artemisium, which occured in 480 BC. Previous reports had Zack Snyder – who in my eyes done a fantastic job with ’300′ – pegged to direct until Warner Bros and producer Christopher Nolan signed him up to helm ‘Man of Steel.’ Noam Murro (five-time DGA nominated commercials director) is on board to direct the film.
‘The Rover’ Set For July (Starring Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson…); ‘Laggies’ Opens In September (Starring Keira Knightley, Chloe Grace Moretz…)
A24 have announced release dates for two of their upcoming films: David Michôd’s (Animal Kingdom) ‘The Rover’ will open in limited release on July 18th before expanding on July 25th, while Lynn Shelton’s (Humpday, Your Sister’s Sister) ‘Laggies’ has been penciled in for a September 26th bow. ‘The Rover’ stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson and is set in the Australian desert in a dangerous and damaged near future. The film was written by Michôd and based on a story conceived by Michôd and Joel Edgerton. The film also co-stars Scoot McNairy, David Field, Anthony Hayes, Gillian Jones and Susan Prior. Celebrated Argentinean filmmaker Natsha Braier acted as Director of Photography and Michôd also teamed up again with ‘Animal Kingdom’ Production Designer, Jo Ford.
‘The Rover’ is set in a world ten years following the collapse of the western economic system, where Australia’s mineral resources have drawn the desperados and dangerous to its shores. With society in decline, the rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows hardened loner Eric (Guy Pearce), who travels the desolate towns and roads of the Australian outback. When a gang of thieves steals his car they leave behind the wounded Rey (Robert Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that matters to him. ’The Rover’ opens this summer.
