“Family Table” Clip From ‘August: Osage County’ – Starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch….
The Weinstein Company has set loose this new clip from ‘August: Osage County,’ the upcoming screen adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play by Tracy Letts. Starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Margo Martindale, Sam Shepard, Chris Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ewan McGregor, Juliette Lewis, Abigail Breslin, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Nicholson and Misty Upham, the film is slated to be released on December 25th in the US and January 17th in the UK. John Wells directs from Letts’ screen adaptation.
‘August: Osage County’ tells the dark, hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. Letts’ play made its Broadway debut in December 2007 after premiering at Chicago’s legendary Steppenwolf Theatre earlier that year. It continued with a successful international run.

First ‘Sabotage’ Trailer – Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello….
Yahoo! has premiered this first trailer for David Ayer’s action-thriller ’Sabotage’ (formerly titled ‘Ten’), which opens on April 11th, 2014. In the film, Arnold Schwarzengger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the world’s deadliest drug cartels. Specializing in complex mobile operations, the team executes a tactical raid on a cartel safe house. What looks to be a typical raid turns out to be an elaborate theft operation, pre-planned by the DEA squad. After hiding millions in stolen cash, the team believes their secret is safe – until someone begins assassinating them one by one.
The cast for ‘Sabotage’ includes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Dawn Olivieri, Joe Manganiello, Malin Akerman, Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Josh Holloway and Harold Perrineau. Described as a testosterone-heavy riff on Agatha Christie’s ‘Ten Little Indians,’ ‘Ten’ is from an original screenplay by Skip Woods. David Ayer’s writing credits include 2001 hit film ‘Training Day,’ which earned an Academy Award for Denzel Washington, as well as scripts for ‘The Fast And The Furious,’ ‘S.W.A.T.’ and ‘U-571.’ He also wrote and directed last years ‘End of Watch,’ ‘Street Kings,’ ‘Harsh Times,’ and the upcoming ‘Fury.’
Pathe has unveiled three new clips from the much anticipated Nelson Mandela biopic, ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.’ Based on the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s autobiography of the same name, ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ is directed by Justin Chadwick (The First Grader, The Other Boleyn Girl) and produced by Anant Singh.

The film tells the story of the legendary South African freedom fighter, spanning over seventy years, including his struggle against apartheid, 27 years in jail and his rise to prominence as a political leader and head-of-state. ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ arrives in cinemas on November 29th in the US and South Africa, and January 3rd in the UK.
