Lionsgate has unveiled, via Digital Spy, this new clip from the black comedy crime tale, ‘Dom Hemingway.’ Written and directed by Richard Shepard, ‘Dom Hemingway’ stars Jude Law, Richard E. Grant, Madalina Diana Ghenea, Demián Bechir and Emilia Clarke. The film will open in UK cinemas on November 15th and April 4th, 2014 in the US.
Jude Law plays Dom Hemingway, a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse who is funny, profane, and dangerous. After twelve years in prison, he sets off with his partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) looking to collect what he’s owed for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss Mr. Fontaine (Demián Bechir). After a near death experience, Dom tries to re-connect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke), but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt.
Speaking to Yahoo!, Michael Fassbender spoke on the development of the sequel to last year’s sci-fi blockbuster, ‘Prometheus.’ Asked what the hold-up was in returning to ‘Prometheus,’ Fassbender said, “Everybody’s asking this, it’s cool! You know, it takes time…. I don’t want them to rush it. I mean the reason that Pixar movies are so amazing is because they spend years throwing it out the window, re-jigging it, coming up with an idea, breaking it down, starting again, you know.”
“So to make it correctly, I think it’s actually very encouraging. Because a lot of the times they’re like ‘we made some money let’s jump on the back of this. We wanna make more money again as soon as possible.’ [But] it’s nice to actually have a little bit of time to develop it.”
Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence & Jeremy Renner Highlighted In New ‘American Hustle’ Poster
Columbia Pictures has set loose this new poster for David O. Russell’s ‘American Hustle.’ The film opens in New York and Los Angeles on December 13th before going wide on December 18th in the US. Written by Eric Singer and O. Russell, and starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Alessandro Nivola, Louis CK, Michael Pena, Jack Huston, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro, the drama is based on the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Christian Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Amy Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Bradley Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Jeremy Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden. ‘American Hustle’ is set for December 20th in the UK. UPDATE: another new poster added below.
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the States, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.

THR are reporting that Dan Aykroyd and Jill Scott have been cast in the Tate Taylor-directed ‘Get On Up.’ Aykroyd will play Ben Bart, the president of Universal Attractions, at one time one of New York’s largest agencies. The agency repped Brown for over 40 years. In a part that is being written specifically for her, Scott will play Brown’s (Chadwick Boseman) wife. Set for October 17th, 2014, Boseman, who broke out in a big way with his performance as Jackie Robinson in ’42,’ will play James Brown. Viola Davis, Nelsan Ellis, Lennie James and Octavia Spencer also star.
Based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film will give “a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.”
