First Teaser Poster For ‘Dom Hemingway’ – Starring Jude Law, Richard E. Grant & Emilia Clarke: “God Save Us All”
Fox Searchlight Pictures has unleashed, via Pop Culture Brain, this new poster for the black comedy crime tale, ‘Dom Hemingway.’ Written and directed by Richard Shepard, ‘Dom Hemingway’ stars Jude Law, Richard E. Grant, Demián Bechir and Emilia Clarke. The film is scheduled to be released in 2014.
Jude Law plays Dom Hemingway, a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse who is funny, profane, and dangerous. After twelve years in prison, he sets off with his partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) looking to collect what he’s owed for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss Mr. Fontaine (Demián Bechir). After a near death experience, Dom tries to re-connect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke), but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt.
With ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ set to commence filming in a couple of months, expect a number of casting reports and rumors coming your way. Today, Latino-Review are reporting that Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron are being eyed by Disney and Lucasfilm for the film, which will be directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Michael Arndt and is scheduled for a 2015 release. As for what role Efron would be playing, the outlet say they don’t know. However, they do believe that Gosling is apparently up for the role of Luke Skywalker’s son since the story takes place 30 years after the events of ‘Return of the Jedi.’ The report also adds that Leonardo DiCaprio met for another role earlier on, but he’s said to have passed because he wants to do another project: ‘Robotech.’ With Disney’s annual D23 Expo on the horizon, August 9th-11th in Anaheim, I’d expect some concrete word about ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ shortly.
While no cast members have officially been announced for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ over the past few months rumors have been pointing towards a number of characters from the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy, Episodes IV, V and VI, returning (in an unknown capacity) for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’; in particular Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher).
THR bring word that Andrew Garfield is attached to star in ’99 Homes,’ an indie drama that will be helmed by Ramin Bahrani, the award-winning filmmaker behind ‘Man Push Cart.’ The script, which Bahrani wrote, tackles recent economic headlines and would see Garfield play a man who loses his home to foreclosure. Desperate, he eventually finds work with the real estate broker who took his house and soon is not only evicting homeowners but helping the man embezzle money from the government. While his financial worries disappear, his conscience begins to break him down.
Ramin Bahrani has shown a propensity for tackling the harder edges of life. ’Man Push Cart,’ about a former Pakistani rock star turned Manhattan street vendor, won several international awards and was nominated for three Indie Spirits. His follow up, ‘Chop Shop,’ focused on a street orphan working in an auto-body repair shop. Andrew Garfield is coming off a successful appearance at Comic-Con, where he performed in character as Spider-Man to a roaring fanboy crowd. ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ is set for a May 2nd, 2014 release.

Simon is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams. The arrival of a new co-worker, James, serves to upset the balance. James is both Simon’s exact physical double and his opposite — confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simon’s horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.
Charles Logan has put together this brilliant Superman Vs. Batman painting centering on Henry Cavill’s Superman and Batman. Charles’ description for the piece is as follows: “The Dark Knight versus The Man Of Steel. As you might have noticed they are in their respective live action Nolan / Snyder outfits. I thought it’d be a nice take to see. This piece was pretty much inspired by Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel and its animation adaption (which is done very beautifully, mind you). Hence why Batman’s armor looks more metallic than rubbery. The pose reference is from Jim Lee’s Hush. The Characters of Batman and Superman belong to DC Comics.”
On Saturday, ‘Man of Steel director Zack Snyder 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 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.
