First 2 Official Images From Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ – Starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain…
The official ‘Interstellar’ Facebook page has debuted these first two images from Christopher Nolan’s hugely anticipated sci-fi flick. Set for November 7th, the film’s top-notch cast includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine and Matt Damon. My hopes are incredibly high for this one!
Directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), the production will travel the globe and utilize a mixture of 35mm anamorphic and IMAX film photography to bring to the screen a script based on the combination of an original idea by Nolan and an existing script by Jonathan Nolan, originally developed for Paramount Pictures and producer Lynda Obst. The new script chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from the past, ‘X-Men: First Class,’ in order to change a major historical event and fight an epic battle that could save our future. Acting as a sequel to both ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and ‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ includes cast members from both: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, and Daniel Cudmore return from ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ while James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Lucas Till return from ‘X-Men: First Class.’
There’s a lot of emotion and built up anger between your Erik/Magneto and James McAvoy’s Charles/Professor X in this movie, especially considering what has happened in the time between that moment on the beach in Cuba in ‘X-Men: The First Class’ and now years later in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ What was it like exploring that dynamic between these two men with James?
Michael Fassbender: With James McAvoy it’s easy. Like duck to water, you know? He’s smart, he’s funny, he’s super professional, he’s intelligent and we’ve got a good rapport – don’t tell him all these good things (laughs). We’re very open and honest with each other and we share ideas and we try things out. Charles and Erik’s dynamic in the film is pretty antagonistic. There’s a lot of loss, hurt, turmoil, pain, love, anger. There’s both such a different means these two men have in terms of achieving what they believe to be the best outcome for mutant society. And that will mean that there will always be conflict there. But I think the respect is great, still. For me the main thing was abandonment perhaps, from both sides. A feeling of loss because what we saw in ‘X-Men: The First Class’ was two characters who realized that they were so alike and could speak to one another on an equal platform. So there was a great bond between these two men, and then of course the tragedy is that they can’t seem to agree on the means to achieve what both of them seem to want.
New International Trailer For The Wachowskis’ ‘Jupiter Ascending’ – Starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean….
From Warner Bros Pictures comes this new international trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s ‘Jupiter Ascending.’ Starring the likes of Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum,Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy and Tim Pigott-Smith, the film opens on July 18th.
From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, ‘Jupiter Ascending’ tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along — her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
From DreamWorks Animation comes this new behind-the-scenes featurette for ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2.’ The sequel checks in with Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his dragon pal, Toothless, five years after he brought humans and dragons together on the island of Berk. An outsider who’s now the village hero, Hiccup is on the verge of adulthood, with his chieftain father, Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), grooming him for responsibility. But he’d rather embrace what’s left of his carefree childhood.
Now here’s how you increase excitement for an already tantalizing sounding project. According to reports, Joel and Ethan Coen are on board to pen the script for DreamWorks’ Cold War movie which has Steven Spielberg set to direct and Tom Hanks starring. The Coen Brothers, who won screenwriting Oscars for ‘Fargo’ and ‘No Country for Old Men,’ are revising Matt Charman’s script.
The untitled project is based on the true story of James Donovan, who Tom Hanks will portray. Donovan was the American attorney enlisted by the CIA during the Cold War to surreptitiously negotiate the 1962 release of Francis Gary Powers, the U-2 spy plane pilot who was shot down over Russia two years earlier. This project would mark Steven Spielberg and Hank’s fourth feature film together. The two previously collaborated on ‘Saving Private Ryan,’ ‘The Terminal’ and ‘Catch Me If You Can.’ They also acted as producers on such projects as the acclaimed HBO miniseries ‘Band of Brothers.’
