Hammer and Entertainment One have unveiled this new US one-sheet 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 in the UK and January 2nd in the US.
With our time on Earth coming to an end, a team of explorers undertakes the most important mission in human history: traveling beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars. Directed by Christopher Nolan and opening on November 7th, ‘Interstellar’ stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Mackenzie Foy, David Gyasi, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Topher Grace, David Oyewelo, Matt Damon, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, and Michael Caine.
What really stood out for you working with Christopher Nolan on ‘Interstellar’ – this sort of very personal, yet spectacular story that has so many of its facets touch on universal themes, from the love of family to the thrill of exploration to what it means to be human…?
Matthew McConaughey: What is amazing to me is that while the excitement of the story lies in its scope – the thrill of adventure and discovery of the unknown – one of my favorite things about Christophe Nolan is the heartbeat of humanity he gives to his films. No one handles the sheer mass and scale of a world like he does because it always comes off as something personal and intimate. There’s no one else out there who does things the way Chris does. He has an original take on everything and works by his instincts completely. I also believe that he’s constantly letting his reach exceed his grasp. And when you see this film, you’ll know it’s true because I think it’s by far the most ambitious film that he has ever directed.
Entertainment One and The Ink Factory send word that they’re co-producing and co-financing the upcoming thriller ‘Message From the King,’ with Chadwick Boseman (42, Get on Up) headlining the film. Set in the underbelly of present day Los Angeles, the story follows Jacob King (Boseman) as he arrives in the city from South Africa, looking for his younger sister. He has a few hundred dollars in his pocket and a return ticket home in a week. Within twenty-four hours he has found out that she has been brutally murdered. ‘Message From the King’ is the story of the next six days.
Last week Marvel officially announced that Chadwick Boseman will play Black Panther in their Cinematic Universe. The character will make his debut opposite Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. in ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ which is due on May 6th, 2016, and a standalone ‘Black Panther’ movie will follow on November 3rd, 2017. ‘Black Panther’ will feature the first black superhero to anchor a studio film since 2004’s ‘Blade: Trinity.’
Just yesterday it was reported that Christian Bale has decided to pass on the lead role of Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle’s upcoming, untitled biopic based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography. Today, Deadline bring word that Michael Fassbender is the actor who’s currently being eyed by Sony Pictures and Boyle to play Jobs in the Aaron Sorkin-scripted film. The outlet add, “I don’t want to get carried away here, after all the heated press speculation about past courtship of other actors Christian Bale (twice) and Leonardo DiCaprio. But the filmmakers like this and it does look like space can be made in Fassbender’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ schedule to accommodate Sony’s hopes to get this into production in the winter….”
Ahead of the release of the film’s new trailer on Thursday, Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted this latest banner poster for ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,’ the epic conclusion to Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy. ‘The Hobbit’ films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ which Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson and his team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar-winning ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.’ ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ will be released in the UK on December 12th and in the US on December 17th.
With principal photography now underway on ‘London Has Fallen,’ Millennium Films and Focus Features have revealed the full cast and synopsis for the sequel to last year’s ‘Olympus Has Fallen.’
The story begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. However, what starts out as the most protected event on Earth turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.
