Hilarious Red Band Trailer For ‘We’re The Millers’ – Starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis & Emma Roberts
Warner Bros. Pictures has released this new NSFW trailer for Rawson Thurber’s (Dodgeball) upcoming comedy, ‘We’re The Millers.’ A small-time pot dealer (Jason Sudeikis) hires a phony family as camouflage to bring two metric tons of weed from Mexico to Colorado. This plan includes working with a cynical stripper (Jennifer Aniston) as his faux wife, along with a homeless teen (Emma Roberts) and geeky neighborhood British kid (Will Poulter) as their offspring. Set for a August 7th release in the US and an August 23rd bow in the UK, ‘We’re The Millers’ also stars Ed Helms, Molly C. Quinn, Kathryn Hahn and Nick Offerman. The official synopsis for the film can be read below.
David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids—after all, he has his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty. Preferring to keep a low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms).
The 57th BFI London Film Festival send word that this year’s Opening Night will take place on October 9th at the Odeon Leicester Square, with the European Premiere of Sony Pictures’ ‘Captain Phillips.’ The film is directed by acclaimed Academy Award nominee Paul Greengrass (United 93, The Bourne Supremacy) and stars two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Philadelphia), both of whom are expected to attend the Festival.
‘Captain Phillips’ is described as director Paul Greengrass’s “multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is – through Greengrass’s distinctive lens – simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks), and his Somali counterpart, Muse (Barkhad Abdi). Set on an incontrovertible collision course off the coast of Somalia, both men will find themselves paying the human toll for economic forces outside of their control.”
Entertainment Weekly has just revealed a new poster for Marvel Studios’ upcoming sequel ‘Thor: The Dark World.’ In the film, the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Kat Dennings, Rene Russo, Tadanobu Asano, Anthony Hopkins, and Natalie Portman also reprise their roles from the first ‘Thor’ film, while Zack Levi is confirmed to play Fandril, Christopher Eccleston will play the villainous Malekith The Accursed, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will be playing Algrim the Strong and Kurse.
Set one year after ‘The Avengers,’ Thor battles to save all the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. However, a primeval race led by Malekith, who is out for revenge, intends to descend the universe into darkness. Confronted by an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot overcome, Thor must reunite with Jane Foster and set out on a dangerous journey that will force him to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Out and about on the promotional run for ‘Kick-Ass 2,’ Aaron Taylor-Johnson discussed with Total Film about the role of Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in ‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.’ While Taylor-Johnson was keen to point out that he was still in talks and had not officially signed on for the role, he has clearly been doing his research: “There’s years – over 50 years – of backstory on him all there to use, and I like doing that. Him and his sister [Scarlet Witch] have been abandoned by their parents and their father, and they grew up in Eastern Europe defending and looking out for themselves and each other. His sister really is his guidance – emotionally she’s the one who looks after him, and vice versa. He’s very overprotective physically – he doesn’t want anyone touching her.”
On the appeal of the character, Aaron Taylor-Johnson said, “He has real anger frustration – I like that. I always thought it’d be quite funny if you saw him eating loads and people asked him why and he’d explain it’s because he’s burning so much energy all the time. Or ideas that you’d see him come back round – but he’s already nipped out and got his lunch somewhere else. He just got bored – his attention span is so fucking quick.”
Variety are reporting that Zhang Yimou is in talks to direct ‘Quasimodo’ for Warner Bros. Pictures. The film has been in development for Warners for some time with Josh Brolin attached to star as the titular character. The classic Victor Hugo novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” follows a gypsy girl who is framed for murder, and only the deformed bellringer of Notre Dame Cathedral, Quasimodo, can save her. Kieran and Michele Mulroney penned the original script. Zhang has made a career for his visual style and incredibly choreographed fight sequences in films like ‘Hero,’ ‘Curse Of The Golden Flower’ and ‘House of Flying Daggers.’ He most recently helmed the Christian Bale-starring war pic ‘Flowers of War.’ The synopsis for the book is as follows.
Set in 1482, Victor Hugo’s powerful novel of imagination, caprice and fantasy is a meditation on love, fate, architecture and politics, as well as a compelling recreation of the medieval world at the dawn of the modern age. In a brilliant reworking of the tale of Beauty and the Beast, Hugo creates a host of unforgettable characters amongst them, Quasimodo, the hunchback of the title, hopelessly in love with the gypsy girl Esmeralda, the satanic priest Claude Frollo, Clopin Trouillefou, king of the beggars, and Louis XI, King of France. Over the entire novel, both literally and symbolically, broods the Cathedral of Notre-Dame. Vivid characters and memorable
