This first image has landed online from the comedic drama ‘A Hologram for the King.’ The film reunites the ‘Cloud Atlas’ co-director Tom Tykwer with Oscar-winner Tom Hanks. Tykwer adapted the script from the novel by Dave Eggers. which was a 2012 National Book Finalist. Eggers is perhaps best known for his 2000 autobiographical novel ‘A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius,’ which focuses on his 20 year-old self’s attempts to bring up his younger brother, Christopher, after their parents both died of cancer within the space of a few months (I strongly recommend it). Alongside Tom Hanks, the cast for ‘A Hologram for the King’ also features Sarita Choudhury, Omar Elba, Tracey Fairaway, David Menkin and Tom Skerritt. The synopsis provided for the film is as follows.
With ‘Macbeth’ now in post-production, Film4 and StudioCanal showed off some footage to buyers at the Cannes market this past week. These new teaser posters have also made it online in low-res form for the film, which is directed by ‘Snowtown’ helmer Justin Kurzel and based on William Shakespeare’s legendary play of the same name. Lead by Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, ‘Macbeth’ features a top-notch supporting cast in Paddy Considine, David Thewlis, Sean Harris, Jack Reynor and Elizabeth Debicki. No release date as of yet, but I would imagine The Weinstein Company are eyeing a late 2014 release in time for Awards season, given the source material and players behind and in front of the camera.

This summer, the world’s most revered monster is reborn as Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures unleash the epic action adventure ‘Godzilla.’ From director Gareth Edwards (Monsters) comes a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance as humanity stands defenseless. ‘Godzilla’ stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson as US Navy Lieutenant Ford Brody, Ken Watanabe as Dr. Ichiro Serizawa, Elizabeth Olsen as Elle Brody, Juliette Binoche as Sandra “Sandy” Brody, Sally Hawkins as Dr. Vivienne Graham, David Strathairn as US Navy Admiral Stenz, and Bryan Cranston as Joseph “Joe” Brody. ‘Godzilla’ opens on May 15th in the UK and May 16th in the US.
I really enjoyed your role in this film and the father-son dynamic between your character Joe Brody and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Ford Brody. Joe can’t let the tragic events of 1999 go, and fifteen years after the event, when Ford travels to Japan for his uneasy reunion with his father, he finds Joe still consumed with the accident that destroyed his nuclear power plant and shattered his family…
Bryan Cranston: Yeah, it’s steeped in character, which makes the fantastic elements of the story more fulfilling because, as you follow these people through this adventure, you see good and bad decisions being made and relationships being pulled apart and brought together. All the elements of any good drama are here, wrapped up in big, epic monster movie. Joe’s spent his life trying to unravel the mystery of what happened that day, but the greatest casualty of his obsession is his relationship with his son.
