Delightfully Barmy Trailer For ‘The Voices’ – Starring Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick….
This first trailer has arrived online for ‘The Voices,’ which is directed by Marjane Satrapi and written by Michael R. Perry. Satrapi previously directed ‘Persepolis,’ based on her best-selling graphic novel, which was nominated for an Academy Award and won the Jury Prize in Cannes. Starring the likes of Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick, and Jacki Weaver, ‘The Voices’ marks her first English language film.
‘The Voices’ is a genre-bending film which centers around Jerry, a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for the attention of a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden turn, we follow Jerry’s perspective as his talking pets, a sinister cat and benevolent dog, lead him down a fantastical, murderous path. The film will land on VOD and in theaters on February 6th.
Reese Witherspoon is reportedly joining Matt Damon in ‘Downsizing,’ reuniting her with writer-director Alexander Payne, two time winner of the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, and a three time Oscar nominee for Best Director. ‘Downsizing’ was scripted by Payne with Jim Taylor, with whom Payne shared the adapted screenplay Oscar for ‘Sideways.’ Story details are currently under-wraps, yet the log line for the social satire is as follows: “the film is a social satire in which a guy (Damon) realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself.”
Dimension Films have unveiled this first trailer for ‘Demonic,’ which is led by Frank Grillo as a detective and Maria Bello as a psychologist, and follows what happens when the pair investigates a brutal massacre inside an abandoned home that took the lives of five college students. Co-starring the likes of Cody Horn, Dustin Milligan, Megan Park, Scott Mechlowicz and Aaron Yoo, the horror is produced by James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring, Furious 7) and directed by Will Canon (Brotherhood). Expect word on a release date shortly.
From Legendary Pictures comes this collection of clips from Michael Mann’s ‘Blackhat’ (which previously went under the title ‘Cyber’). Set within the world of global cybercrime, the film follows a furloughed convict and his American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Tang Wei and Wang Leehom, ‘Blackhat’ opens on January 16th in the US and February 20th in the UK.
Fresh from his critically-acclaimed performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘Birdman,’ Michael Keaton is said to be in talks to join Tom Hiddleston and J.K. Simmons in ‘Kong: Skull Island,’ which is set for release on March 10th, 2017. Based on the mythic origins of King Kong, where mutant giant creatures rule, the film will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer).
Skull Island is the name most often used to describe a fictional island first appearing in the 1933 film ‘King Kong’ and later appearing in its sequels, three remakes, and any other King Kong-based media. It is the home of the eponymous King Kong and several other species of creatures, mostly prehistoric and in some cases species that should have been extinct long before the rise of mammalian creatures such as gorillas, along with a primitive society of humans. With the success of ‘Godzilla’ and ‘Pacific Rim,’ Legendary Pictures certainly seem like they have their eyes on reviving the “gigantic monster” genre. And I’d say that it’s a safe bet that this will lead into a ‘King Kong vs. Godzilla’ throw down sometime in the future.
The official 007 website has revealed this collection of behind-the-scenes images from the set of ‘Spectre,’ featuring Daniel Craig, Léa Seydoux, and Dave Bautista. They add, “Daniel Craig (James Bond), Léa Seydoux (Madeleine Swann) and Dave Bautista (Hinx) were in the Austrian ski resort of Sölden for SPECTRE. Other Austrian locations for SPECTRE include Obertilliach and Lake Altaussee.”
The 24th 007 adventure also stars Christoph Waltz as Franz Oberhauser, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, Andrew Scott as Denbigh, a new member of MI6 and Whitehall, Ralph Fiennes as M, the head of MI6 and Bond’s superior, Ben Whishaw as Q, the MI6 quartermaster, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner, the MI6 Chief of Staff, and Jesper Christensen as Mr. White, an enforcer in the Quantum organisation. Director Sam Mendes returns from ‘Skyfall.’
