Theatrical Trailer For ‘Pompeii’ – Starring Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland & Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
FilmDistrict has loose this new full-length trailer for ‘Pompeii,’ the period-based action film from director Paul W.S. Anderson. Set for a February 28th, 2014 release, the film stars Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Jared Harris, Kiefer Sutherland, Carrie-Anne Moss, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Jessica Lucas. ‘Pompeii’ follows an enslaved Celtic gladiator (Harrington) who falls in love with a noblewoman (Browning) on the eve of a massive volcanic eruption that destroys Pompeii, an event that also brings him face-to-face with the man who slaughtered his family years earlier.
Accompanying Variety’s report on Gal Gadot landing the role of Wonder Woman in the tentatively titled ‘Batman vs. Superman’ movie, the outlet adds that the studio is currently in the process of casting a villain in the film. While Batman and Superman’s relationship will at one point be contentious in the ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up, the ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ and ‘300: Rise of the Empire’ star Callan Mulvey is said to be someone Warner Bros and director Zack Snyder has as a contender for the unknown antagonist role. Additionally, The Flash is still said to be a lock to appear “in some fashion, whether that’s a significant role or a cameo”.
Warner Bros. Pictures has set loose this new banner for ’The LEGO Movie.’ Scheduled for a February 7th release in the US and a February 14th bow in the UK, ’The LEGO Movie’ is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) from their own original screenplay. The film features the voices of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Cobie Smulders, and Morgan Freeman.
Chris Pratt stars as Emmet. Oscar winner Morgan Freeman and Elizabeth Banks will star as two of Emmet’s fellow travelers: Vitruvius, an old mystic; and tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest. She also calls upon the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure voiced by Will Arnett, with whom she shares a history. Will Ferrell will play Emmet’s primary adversary, President Business; Liam Neeson is the president’s powerful henchman, Bad Cop; Nick Offerman is a craggy, swaggering pirate obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Brie is a member of Emmet’s team with a powerful secret.
According to Deadline, director Alan Taylor and Paramount are looking closely at Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson to play the role of Sarah Connor in the ‘Terminator’ reboot . Connor was played by Linda Hamilton in the classic movies directed by James Cameron. The character is the future mother of John Connor, who grows up to be the leader of the human resistance in the war between humanity and cyborgs.
Both actresses have tested for the producers, and are said to be the frontrunners. Deadline have apparently heard that Emilia Clarke has an edge, and that would not be surprising. Before Alan Taylor helmed ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ he directed Clarke in HBO’s ‘Game Of Thrones.’ She, of course, plays the awesome dragon-commanding heroine Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series, and has demonstrated the mettle to capably play one of the screen’s most formidable heroines. Expect more casting news shortly.
Following the tragic death of Paul Walker on Saturday, Universal Pictures has just released an official statement on the status of ‘Fast & Furious 7.’ “Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul’s immediate family and our extended Fast & Furious family of cast, crew and filmmakers. At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise. We are committed to keeping Fast & Furious fans informed, and we will provide further information to them when we have it. Until then, we know they join us in mourning the passing of our dear friend Paul Walker.” A large portion of the film has been shot but is not yet complete. The film was originally set for July 11th, 2014.
Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted this new trailer for ’300: Rise of an Empire,’ the upcoming follow-up to Zack Snyder’s ’300.’ Planned 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. Snyder produces.
