IFC Films has set loose, via iTunes Movie Trailers, this first trailer for writer/director David Lowery’s ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints.’ Starring the likes of Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Ben Foster and Keith Carradine, the film is penciled in for an August 16th release.
Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), an impassioned young outlaw couple on an extended crime spree, are finally apprehended by lawmen after a shootout in the Texas hills. Although Ruth wounds a local officer, Bob takes the blame. But four years later, Bob escapes from prison and sets out to find Ruth and their daughter, born during his incarceration. Set against the backdrop of 1970′s Texas Hill Country, director David Lowery paints a poetic picture, evoking the mythology of westerns and saturating the dramatic space with an aching sense of loss. Featuring powerful performances by Affleck, Mara as well as Ben Foster and Keith Carradine, AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS is a story of love, motherhood, and searching for peace while faced with an unrelenting past.
In a surprising turn of event events, Deadline are reporting that Tom Cruise has exited as the lead in ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,’ the remake of the classic TV series that Guy Ritchie will direct for Warner Bros. Cruise was scheduled to star in the film with Armie Hammer, but he has stepped out of the picture to focus on producing and starring in ‘Mission: Impossible 5.’ Paramount and Skydance are now planning to begin shooting the latest installment of ‘Mission: Impossible’ franchise before year’s end. Warner Bros has a script they like, and a top director who’s expecting to direct ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ in the fall. The timing proved too difficult and so Cruise stepped out to focus on ‘M:I5.’ Expect news about a replacement shortly.
Based on the classic 1960′s TV show, the film has a script by Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum). Steven Soderbergh was originally lined up to direct the film, however due to budget and casting difficulties (George Clooney dropped out due because he needed surgery on his neck and back, and he wasn’t up for a physical role), Soderbergh passed on the project. The original ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ series starred Robert Vaughn as Napoleon Solo and David McCallum as Illya Kuryakin. They were agents of United Network Command for Law Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.) who fight the forces of Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity (T.H.R.U.S.H.).
Paramount Pictures send word that they’ve teamed up with Grammy Award-winning band Muse to feature the band’s music in the new film ‘World War Z.’ The tracks are from Muse’s latest album ‘The 2nd Law.’ Following the film’s world premiere in London’s Leicester Square on Sunday, June 2nd, Muse will perform live from Horse Guards Parade Ground, St. James’s Park. Tickets for the live performance will be available Tuesday, May 28th at 9:00 am BST. For more information and for tickets, head on over to http://www.worldwarz.co.uk/MUSE.
‘World War Z’ revolves around an ex-United Nations investigator Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt), who traverses the world in a race against time to stop a pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox and David Morse also star. Look out for the film in cinemas on June 21st.
A24 has unveiled this latest clip from Sofia Coppola’s (Lost in Translation, Somewhere) ’The Bling Ring.’ Co-produced, written and directed by Coppola, ‘The Bling Ring’ is based on the true story of a group of six teenagers who over the course of a year stole up to $3 million worth of goods from celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson, Megan Fox and Orlando Bloom. Set for June 14th in the US and July 5th in the UK, the film stars Emma Watson, Israel Broussard, Kirsten Dunst, Katie Chang, Taissa Farmiga, Carlos Miranda, Claire Pfister, Georgia Rock and Leslie Mann.

In the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, a group of teenagers take us on a thrilling and disturbing crime-spree in the Hollywood hills.

Their victims included Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Rachel Bilson, and the gang became known in the media as “The Bling Ring.”
‘Man Of Steel’ Producer Speaks On Lois Lane (Amy Adams) & Clark Kent’s (Henry Cavill) Relationship In The Film
Talking to the good people over at SFX Magazine, producer Deborah Snyder opened up about a number subjects relating to the upcoming Superman reboot, ‘Man of Steel.’ Asked about Lois Lane and Clark Kent’s relationship, and how it relates to previous incarnations of Superman we’ve seen, Snyder said, “I think that our Lois is a little feistier and stronger. I think both characters are more realistic to us, to society now. Clark to me was always too good to really relate to. He was a little too much this perfect boy scout, and although Lois was feisty and strong she was still always the one being rescued. Not to say that she doesn’t get rescued in our movie, but she rescues him right back, in so many other ways, emotionally. And in our film, in our last setpiece, she has a very strong position. There’s something that she needs to accomplish in this plan in order for it to work. I like seeing that she’s a really strong female character, and very proactive.” So she isn’t just falling off skyscrapers? “No! (laughs) And her apartment is a little more realistic to her job, I think. With the Richard Donner films I was always like “Wow, that apartment – how could she afford that? It’s amazing!””
Speaking on what the team behind ‘Man of Steel’ were looking for in the person that would bring their Lois to the screen, the producer said, “Amy [Adams] is an amazing actor. With all the casting we tried to get the best actors we could, because it just gives it credibility. In so many ways we didn’t look at it as a genre superhero movie – we looked at it as a great story that we were telling, and we wanted to get the best people. Amy embodied so much of Lois – she’s feisty herself and she’s so versatile, and she was really just perfect for the role.”
Accompanying the release of this new image, Deadline bring word that Entertainment One has acquired North American and UK distribution rights to the upcoming biopic, ‘Diana.’ The film, previously reported under its working title of ‘Caught In Flight,’ is directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (Academy-Award nominated for ‘Downfall’) from a screenplay by Stephen Jeffreys (The Libertine). Leading the cast is Academy-Award nominated actress Naomi Watts as the eponymous and iconic Princess. Joining Watts is Naveen Andrews as Dr Hasnat Khan, Douglas Hodge and Juliet Stevenson.
‘Diana’ is described as a compelling portrait of Diana, Princess of Wales during the final two years of her life. It charts how finding true personal happiness allowed her to achieve her defining successes, as she evolved into a major international campaigner and humanitarian. Deadline add that the story is about “Diana’s covert love affair with Dr. Hasnat Khan, a Pakistani heart surgeon. This happened in the last two years of her life, before she met Dodi Fayed, and the need for privacy led to her meeting her lover in disguises. This gave her a sense of living an anonymous life, but her incredible worldwide fame became an issue.” While there’s currently no official release date set for ‘Diana,’ expect the film to land in cinemas sometime during Oscar season later this year.
