Second ‘The Imitation Game’ Clip; Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) Meets Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley)
This second clip has arrived online for ‘The Imitation Game,’ which stars the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Charles Dance, Allen Leech and Matthew Beard. The film offers a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of Alan Turing, one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, and one of the world’s greatest innovators.
The pioneer of modern-day computing, Alan Turing is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a “nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II.” Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on. Norwegian filmmaker Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) is directing from a screenplay by Graham Moore, based on the book “Alan Turing: The Enigma” by Andrew Hodges. ‘The Imitation Game’ is set for a November 14th bow in the UK and a November 21st release in the US.
Just in time for Halloween, Entertainment One UK has unveiled this official main poster for the horror sequel, ‘The Woman in Black: Angel of Death.’ Starring Jeremy Irvin, Helen McCrory, Adrian Rawlins, Ned Dennehy and Phoebe Fox, ‘The Woman in Black: Angel of Death’ continues the story four decades later.
Back in 2012, ‘The Woman in Black,’ starring Daniel Radcliffe and directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake), became the highest grossing British horror film of the past 20 years – grossing over $33 million in the UK and over $125 million worldwide. In ‘The Woman in Black: Angels Of Death,’ seized by the government during World War II, the sudden arrival of a group of evacuated children at Eel Marsh House awakens its darkest inhabitant. Tom Harper directs the film, which hits cinemas on January 1st, 2015. Harper’s also got a stellar movie called ‘War Book’ coming out, so look out for that next year.
Eric Bana & Ricky Gervais To Lead The ‘Special Correspondents’ Remake; Gervais Will Also Write & Direct
Bron Studios and Unanimous Entertainment send word that Eric Bana and Ricky Gervais are set to star in a remake of director Frédéric Auburtin’s 2009 French comedy ‘Special Correspondents’ (Envoyés Très Spéciaux), which Gervais will also write, direct and produce. The 2009 original had a Wag the Dog-style scenario of France mobilizing to gain release for two kidnapped journalists (Gérard Jugnot and Gérard Lanvin) in Iraq, which only the “victims” knew was a fake kidnapping. Gervais has given his adaptation a media-centric spin, with Bana’s character as an arrogant, struggling New York-based radio journalist who fakes frontline war reports from a Spanish restaurant in Manhattan as a desperate ploy to save his job.
Penguin has today unveiled this beautiful movie tie-in cover for ‘Inherent Vice.’ The new edition of the “part noir, part psychedelic romp, all Thomas Pynchon” novel comes out November 26th, while the film itself opens on December 12th in the US and January 30th in the UK.
Paul Thomas Anderson’s hugely anticipated crime drama stars Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Jena Malone, Michael K. Williams, Katherine Waterston, Martin Short and Maya Rudolph. Set in 1970 Los Angeles, ‘Inherent Vice’ follows the drug-fueled detective Larry “Doc” Sportello (Phoenix) as he investigates the case of a kidnapped girl. Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood scored Anderson’s previous two films – ‘The Master’ and ‘There Will Be Blood’ – and will again lend the director his sparse, foreboding melodies.
One of the big surprises at this past summer’s Comic-Con was Legendary Pictures’ unveiling of ‘Skull Island,’ a new feature by ‘Godzilla’ writer Max Borenstein based on the mythic origins of King Kong, where mutant giant creatures rule. Now we hear that screenwriter John Gatins, who was nominated for an Academy Award for the 2012 film ‘Flight,’ will pen the next draft of the script. Scheduled for a November 4th, 2016 release, Tom Hiddleston is pegged to star and Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) will direct the film.
First ‘Pride And Prejudice And Zombies’ Image Features Lily James, Suki Waterhouse & The Rest Of The Bennett Sisters
Our first look at the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ has arrived online today, showcasing the Bennett sisters: Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty Bennet (Suki Waterhouse). The project has been in development for a number of years, with David O. Russell originally eyed to direct, Natalie Portman starring and Lionsgate distributing. However, the script took too long to develop the proper tone, leading to Russell and Portman exiting because of scheduling conflicts. After those two left, the project went through a revolving door of directors including Mike White and Craig Gillespie, while actresses such as Scarlett Johansson, Mia Wasikowska, Lily Collins, Emma Stone and Anne Hathaway were all linked to star.
The revamped production, which mixes the 1813 Jane Austen classic ‘Pride And Prejudice’ with a legion of bloodthirsty undead, is filming now with a cast that also includes Jack Huston as Mr. Wickham, Matt Smith as Mr. Collins, Douglas Booth as Bingley. L, Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy, and ‘Game of Thrones’ stars Charles Dance and Lena Headey.
