From Universal Pictures comes this first TV spot for Luc Besson’s action-thriller, ‘Lucy.’ Scarlett Johansson stars as the title character, a young woman who is forced to become a drug mule and is subsequently transformed into an ass-kicking machine when a highly-specialized drug enters her system. As Lucy races against the clock to survive, her new abilities allow her to see into the future, move objects with her mind and disregard pain and other emotions.
Luc Besson penned the script and will produce with his EuropaCorp CEO Christophe Lambert. ‘Lucy’ is the latest Besson movie to feature a strong female protagonist, following the likes of ‘La Femme Nikita,’ ‘Joan of Arc,’ ‘The Professional’ and ‘The Fifth Element.’ Set for July 25th in the US and August 22nd in the UK, the likes of Morgan Freeman and Analeigh Tipton co-star.
Walt Disney Animation Studios and Marvel have unleashed the new poster for ‘Big Hero 6.’ The film follows a brilliant robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada, who finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion — a robot named Baymax — Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city. Featuring the voices of TJ Miller, Jamie Chung and Maya Rudolph, ‘Big Hero 6′ is inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name and is set to hit cinemas on November 7th in the US and January 30th in the UK.
“Big Hero 6″ is a heartfelt comedy adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, clean freak Wasabi No-Ginger, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a cutting-edge robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6″ is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”).
Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them – and us – on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. The film – also starring Willem Dafoe, Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, Mike Birbiglia and Emily Peachey – explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love. Josh Boone directs from a script by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (500 Days of Summer).
Based on John Green’s acclaimed best-seller of the same name, ‘The Fault in our Stars’ opened this weekend in North America to a hefty $48.2 million at the Box Office. Opening on June 19th in the UK and Ireland, the romantic comedy-drama was made for roughly $12 million, so its already made a bucket load of money – drinks are on 20th Century Fox! Check out what Shailene Woodley had to say about the film below.
I understand this book and this script for ‘The Fault in our Stars’ grabbed you immediately — you even sent John Green a long email about how much you loved the book and how you had to play Hazel. But what in particular was it about the story that gave you that passion and made you want to play Hazel?
Shailene Woodley: I did (laughs). I read the book and I pretty much decided that I would do anything I could to be a part of this movie. It was truly one of the biggest honors of my life to be a part of this movie. I just thought the universal messages were so important and so integral for humanity to hear these days. And if we’re able to take such a beautiful lesson and deliver it to the world in an artistic form such as through visual media… very rarely do you go to movies and feel like your world has been completely rocked for the better. I was so profoundly moved reading the script and the book, and I felt like that myself.
