Relativity Media has set loose this latest clip from Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, ‘Don Jon.’ Besides directional duties on the film, Gordon-Levitt wrote the script and stars as a modern day Don Juan who sets out to become a less selfish person after meeting a recently widowed older woman (Julianne Moore). Scarlett Johansson co-stars in the dark comedy alongside Tony Danza, Glenne Headly, Brie Larson and Rob Brown. Set for a September 27th release in the US and a November 15th bow in the UK, the synopsis for ‘Don Jon’ can be read below.
Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old-fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to “pull” a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn’t compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old-fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she’s determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old-fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Said to be in talks just over a month ago, Deadline today reveal that Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) has been confirmed to direct a new adaptation of the 1880 Lew Wallace novel ‘Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ,’ which in its time outsold every book but ‘The Bible’ until it was eclipsed by ‘Gone With The Wind.’ The 1959 feature adaptation of ‘Ben-Hur’ was directed by William Wyler and starred Charlton Heston, Stephen Boyd, Jack Hawkins, Hugh Griffith and Haya Harareet. It won a record 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, an accomplishment that was not equaled until ‘Titanic’ in 1997 and then again by ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’ in 2003.
This gives MGM its Biblical epic at a time when ‘The Bible’ was such a miniseries success that Fox is going to theatrically release the truncated movie-length version ‘Son Of God'; Paramount and New Regency ready the Darren Aronofsky-directed ‘Noah’ with Russell Crowe; and Ridley Scott ready to direct ‘Exodus,’ with Christian Bale playing Moses and Joel Edgerton, Ben Kingsley, Sigourney Weaver, John Turturro and Aaron Paul.
French Canadian & US Posters For ‘Blue Is The Warmest Color’ – Starring Adèle Exarchopoulos & Léa Seydoux
Co-written and directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’ won the top honor at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the Palme d’Or. The film is set to be released in France on October 9th, in the US on October 25th, and in the UK from November 15th.
‘Blue is the Warmest Color’ centers on a 15-year-old girl named Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) who is climbing to adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A handsome male classmate (Jeremie Laheurte) falls for her hard, but an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adèle imagines that the mysterious, blue-haired girl she encountered in the street slips into her bed and possesses her with an overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident older art student named Emma (Léa Seydoux), who will soon enter Adèle’s life for real, making way for an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction.

Warner Bros. Pictures has released this latest TV spot and behind-the-scenes featurette for Alfonso Cuarón’s (Children Of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) ’Gravity.’ The thriller, which stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as astronauts stranded in space after their shuttle is caught in a meteor shower, is pencilled in for a October 4th release in the US and a November 8th bow in the UK.
‘Gravity’ is written by Alfonso Cuarón and his son, Jonás Cuarón. In the film, Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone–tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
