YouTube announced today a special programming week from August 4-10 called “Geek Week,” and they’ve revealed that they’ll premiere the new trailer for ‘Thor: The Dark World’ in conjunction with the event on Wednesday, August 7th. Though nothing has been confirmed at this moment in time, the new trailer is expected to contain footage that was screened at Marvel’s San Diego Comic-Con panel.
In ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Kat Dennings, Rene Russo, Tadanobu Asano, Anthony Hopkins, and Natalie Portman reprise their roles from the first ‘Thor’ film, while Zack Levi is confirmed to play Fandril, Christopher Eccleston will play the villainous Malekith The Accursed, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will be playing Algrim the Strong and Kurse.
Warner Bros. Pictures has let out hatch, via Yahoo! Movies, this new poster for Denis Villeneuve’s (Incendies) dramatic thriller, ‘Prisoners.’ Led by Hugh Jackman and Jack Gyllenhaal, ‘Prisoners’ features an all-star cast, including Maria Bello as Keller’s distraught wife, Grace; Oscar nominees Terrence Howard and Viola Davis as Franklin and Nancy Birch, whose daughter Joy went missing with the Dovers’; Academy Award winner Melissa Leo as Alex Jones’ Aunt Holly; and Paul Dano as Alex Jones. ‘Prisoners’ is pencilled in for a September 20th release in the US and a October 4th bow in the UK.
In the film, Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His six-year-old daughter, Anna, is missing, together with her young friend, Joy, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but a lack of evidence forces the only suspect’s release. Knowing his child’s life is at stake, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. The desperate father will do whatever it takes to find the girls, but in doing so, he may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between seeking justice and becoming a vigilante?
‘Fruitvale Station’ Duo Ryan Coogler & Michael B. Jordan Team Up With Sylvester Stallone For The ‘Rocky’ Spin-Off ‘Creed’
I love this! Deadline are reporting that MGM is setting writer-director Ryan Coogler to direct ‘Creed,’ and the studio is in early talks with Coogler’s ‘Fruitvale Station’ star Michael B. Jordan to play the grandson of Apollo Creed in a continuation of the Rocky saga that Coogler is going to write with Aaron Covington. Sylvester Stallone will reprise Rocky Balboa as a retired fighter-turned-trainer. This comes in the wake of a strong summer platform opening for ‘Fruitvale Station,’ the film that won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Awards at Sundance, and captured Prize Of The Future at the Cannes Film Festival. Coogler intends for this to be his directorial follow-up to ‘Fruitvale Station’ so the intention is to make it happen quickly.
Much the same way that Ryan Coogler burned with the desire to tell the tragic story of Oscar Grant in his feature debut, this whole idea also came from Coogler. While Coogler already had the relationship with Michael B. Jordan, his agency put him together with Sylvester Stallone. Stallone, who is right now heavily involved in a stage musical transfer of his original Oscar-winning 1976 film ‘Rocky,’ loved the idea and felt it was strong enough for him to bring back his signature screen character. Stallone and Coogler then approached MGM’s Gary Barber and Jon Glickman, and they were down.
THR bring word that Abigail Breslin is joining Arnold Schwarzenegger in zombie flick, ‘Maggie.’ Based on the Black List script by John Scott 3, the film is set at a time when a “walking dead” virus which has spread across the country. Schwarzenegger, who recently closed a deal to appear in the fifth ‘Terminator’ movie, will portray the father on a journey to help his daughter (Breslin) come to terms with her infection as she slowly becomes a zombie. Set to start filming in the fall, ‘Maggie’ is directed by commercial director Henry Hobson. Chloe Moretz had been in negotiations last year to play the zombie lead but she is not appearing due to scheduling issues.
Abigail Breslin, who became an in-demand young actress following her starring role in ‘Little Miss Sunshine,’ most recently starred opposite Halle Berry in the thriller ‘The Call.’ She has a number of films in the can including franchise hopeful ‘Ender’s Game’ and The Weinstein Co.’s ‘August: Osage County,’ which already is generating awards buzz.

Dinsey has debuted this first poster for ‘Saving Mr. Banks,’ the account of Walt Disney’s twenty-year pursuit of the film rights to P.L. Travers’ popular novel, ‘Mary Poppins’, and the testy partnership the filmmaker develops with the author during the project’s pre-production in 1961. Two-time Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks plays Disney (the first time the entrepreneur has ever been depicted in a dramatic film) alongside fellow double Oscar-winner Emma Thompson in the role of Travers.
Before actually signing away the book’s rights, P.L. Travers’ demands for contractual script and character control circumvent not only Walt Disney’s vision for the film adaptation, but also those of the creative team of screenwriter Don DaGradi and sibling composers Richard and Robert Sherman, whose original score and song (Chim-Chim-Cher-ee) would go on to win Oscars at the 1965 ceremonies – the film won five awards of its thirteen nominations.
