First Clip & New Pic From Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem’ – Starring Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, Matt Damon & More
This new image and first official clip has arrived online for Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem.’ Starring Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Peter Stormare, Lucas Hedges and David Thewlis, ‘The Zero Theorem’ is set for 2014. You can always count me in for a new Terry Gilliam flick. The synopsis for ‘The Zero Theorem’ can be read below. Source: Collider.
The Zero Theorem is set in a world that seems right in Gilliam’s wheelhouse. Living in an Orwellian corporate world where “mancams” serve as the eyes of a shadowy figure known only as Management, Leth (Waltz) works on a solution to the strange theorem while living as a virtual cloistered monk in his home—the shattered interior of a fire-damaged chapel. His isolation and work are interrupted now and then by surprise visits from Bainsley, a flamboyantly lusty love interest who tempts him with “tantric biotelemetric interfacing” (virtual sex) and Bob. Latter is the rebellious whiz-kid teenage son of Management who, with a combination of insult-comedy and an evolving true friendship, spurs on Qohen’s efforts at solving the theorem. But these visits turn out to be intentional diversions orchestrated by Management to keep control of Qohen’s progress. Bob creates a virtual reality “inner-space” suit that will carry Qohen on an inward voyage, a close encounter with the hidden dimensions and truth of his own soul, wherein lie the answers both he and Management are seeking. The suit and supporting computer technology will perform an inventory of Qohen’s soul, either proving or disproving the Zero Theorem.
New Clip & Images From ‘Kill Your Darlings’ – Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan & Michael C. Hall

This past week or so, there’s been a lot of gossip swirling around that Lucasfilm are about to make a big casting announcement regarding ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ and according to Film Chronicles, that casting announcement appears to be none-other than Benedict Cumberbatch, who was most recently seen in director J.J. Abrams’ previous flick, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness.’ With plot details under wraps, how the ‘Sherlock’ star potentially fits into the new movie is entirely open to conjecture. The speculation began when the actor recently left Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming film, ‘Crimson Peak,’ without giving reason.
On the promotional campaign for ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ Benedict Cumberbatch stated that he’s a huge fan of the original ‘Star Wars’ films, ‘I’ve already asked him (Abrams) if I can be a lightsaber and we’re in talks – about whirring sounds and the rates for the lights and everything [laughs]….. I was much more connected to [Star Wars] as a kid, in the way that a lot of kids are because it’s immediate storytelling, very simple – a beautifully, outrageously simple narrative in a way – and a wonderful three-act melodrama, opera. And I loved them. I really, really loved those films and I always wanted to be Han Solo. Everything Harrison Ford did I just thought was the coolest thing ever”. Expect an update on this story shortly.
Not long after the casting announcement of Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, Universal Pictures and Focus Features have revealed that Charlie Hunnam will star as Christian Grey, the lead male character, in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ Hunnam currently stars as Jackson “Jax” Teller on the critically acclaimed FX series ‘Sons of Anarchy.’ His feature film credits include ‘Pacific Rim,’ ‘Children of Men,’ ‘Cold Mountain,’and ‘Nicholas Nickleby.’
The Guardian has debuted this first trailer for Jonathan Glazer’s (Sexy Beast, Birth) ‘Under The Skin.’ In search of loners, Laura (Scarlett Johansson) drives around the exquisitely moody landscapes of the Scottish highlands. She’s an alien, sent from afar and equipped with enough human language and awesome seductive power to capture, destroy and presumably send home human males. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Glazer and cowriter Walter Campbell adapt Michael Faber’s acclaimed novel of the same name. Expect a release date shortly.
Universal Pictures and Focus Features send word that Dakota Johnson will star as Anastasia Steele, the lead female character, in the adaptation of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ The film, which will be released by Focus Features on August 1st, 2014 in North America, is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (‘Nowhere Boy’) and produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti alongside E L James, the author of the #1 bestselling book on which the film is based. The screenplay is by Kelly Marcel.
Dakota Johnson’s first notable screen role was in the multi-Academy Award-winning 2010 feature ‘The Social Network.’ Her subsequent movies include the upcoming feature ‘Need for Speed,’ ’21 Jump Street,’ and ‘The Five-Year Engagement.’ She also starred as Kate in the Fox Network comedy series ‘Ben and Kate.’ Johnson is currently shooting the feature film ‘Cymbeline.’
