Sony Pictures has debuted this new international TV spot for Jose Padilha’s upcoming remake of ‘RoboCop.’ In cinemas on February 7th in the UK and February 12th in the US, the film stars Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy/RoboCop; Michael Keaton as Raymond Sellars, the villainous CEO of OmniCorp; Samuel L. Jackson as Pat Novak, a charismatic media mogul; Abbie Cornish as Ellen Murphy, Alex’s wife; Michel K. Williams as Jack Lewis, Alex’s former partner; Gary Oldman as Norton, the scientist who creates RoboCop and finds himself torn between the ideals of the machine trying to rediscover its humanity and the callous needs of a corporation; Jackie Earle Haley as Maddox, a military tactician responsible for training RoboCop; Jay Baruchel as Pope, the head of marketing for Omnicorp; Jennifer Ehle as Liz Kline; and Marianne Jean-Baptiste as Karen Dean, Detroit chief of police. The screenplay for ‘RoboCop’ is by Josh Zetumer and Nick Schenk, based on the 1987 motion picture written by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner.
Well, this is disappointing. Twitch are reporting that, with pre-production already under way, Tom Hardy has backed out of ‘The Outsider.’ While the search is apparently on for a replacement, pre-production has been put on hold and with director Takashi Miike committed to multiple projects in 2014, they are also told that Hardy’s departure will push the film outside of Miike’s window of availability – meaning the film is also in the market for a new director.
‘The Outsider’ would have marked the English-language debut of Takashi Miike. The acclaimed director has helmed more than 60 Japanese-language films, including ‘Ichi the Killer,’ ’13 Assassins’ (one of my favorite films) and ‘Audition.’ Tom Hardy next stars in ‘Locke’ and the franchise reboot ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ He also stars in the Dennis Lehane-scripted and Michael R. Roskam-directed ‘The Drop’ opposite Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts and James Gandolfini, and in the Daniel Espinosa-directed ‘Child 44.’
Collider has revealed this poster for Marjane Satrapi’s (Persepolis) ’The Voices,’ which is set to premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and stars Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick, and Jacki Weaver. This genre-bending tale centers around Jerry Hickfang (Reynolds), a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, Jerry’s evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog lead him down a fantastical path where he ultimately finds salvation. Expect release details shortly.
This collection of behind-the-scenes “B-Roll” footage has arrived online for writer-director-star George Clooney’s ‘The Monuments Men,’ which is set for February 7th in the US and February 14th in the UK. Co-written by Grant Heslov, the film’s stellar cast also includes Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and John Goodman. Based on the book ‘The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History’ by Robert M. Edsel, the film concerns the story of the “Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program, an Allied group, tasked with saving pieces of art and other culturally important items before their destruction by Hitler during World War II.
The true action-thriller focuses on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys – seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 – possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.
Given that Zack Snyder’s tentatively titled ‘Batman vs Superman’ film has been moved from a July 17th, 2015 release to May 6th, 2016, it’s unlikely we’ll be getting a peep at Ben Affleck’s new Dark Knight digs anytime soon. That said, Affleck’s wife and fellow actor, Jennifer Garner, revealed to Entertainment Tonight’s Rocsi Diaz that she’s seen the new Batman costume that her husband will be wearing, and it’s apparently nothing like the previous incarnations of the uniform:
With the film’s US trailer set to arrive online on Tuesday at 1pm ET/10am PT/6pm GMT, Yahoo! Movies has unleashed this new still from ‘The Raid 2.’ Once again written and directed by Gareth Evans, ‘The Raid 2′ picks up right where the first film left off and follows Rama (Iko Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force. In addition to Uwais, the international cast includes Tio Pakusadewo, Putra Arifin Scheunamann, Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad and Roy Marten. Opening in the US on March 28th, the film will have its World Premiere this week at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
‘The Raid: Redemption’ premiered at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, where it took home the Audience Award in the Midnight Madness section. It went on to play at Sundance and SXSW, before a theatrical release in the United States through Sony Pictures Classics. Expect word on the UK release of ‘The Raid 2′ shortly.
