From 20th Century Fox comes this latest behind-the-scenes featurette for Wes Ball’s adaptation of James Dashner’s post-apocalyptic novel, ‘The Maze Runner.’ The story centers on a teenage boy who wakes up in a strange community remembering only his first name. He soon learns they are part of a mysterious test, and finds it is his destiny to join the ‘maze runners’ and lead them to freedom. The story follows his and his fellow prisoners’ struggle to unlock the secrets of the maze that surrounds this mysterious community. Starring Dylan O’Brien, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Jacob Latimore and Ki Hong Lee, ‘The Maze Runner’ is set to hit cinemas on October 10th in the UK and on September 19th in the US.
Earlier this year it was first reported that ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are set reunite on a 20th Century Fox project titled ‘The Ballad Of Richard Jewell,’ which is based on Marie Brenner’s 1997 Vanity Fair article ‘American Nightmare: The Ballad Of Richard Jewell’ (you can read it here). Today we hear that that the project may have found a director in Paul Greengrass (United 93, The Bourne Ultimatum, Captain Phillips). At this moment in time Greengrass is said to be circling the real-life drama, but has not yet made a commitment. His ‘Captain Phillips’ screenwriter Billy Ray is writing the script for ‘The Ballad Of Richard Jewell.’

The likes of Jason Isaacs, Scott Eastwood, Xavier Samuel and Brad William Henke co-star. The film will open in the US on October 17th and in the UK on October 24th.
In ‘Fury’, it is April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
The first official footage has arrived online from Paul Thomas Anderson’s hugely anticipated crime drama ‘Inherent Vice.’ The shots, which are brief, come courtesy of the trailer for the upcoming New York Film Festival. Based on the 2009 crime novel by Thomas Pynchon, ‘Inherent Vice’ stars Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Jena Malone, Michael K. Williams, Katherine Waterston, Martin Short and Maya Rudolph.
The film opens on December 12th in the US and January 30th in the UK, and Jonny Greenwood is again providing the soundtrack after scoring Paul Thomas Anderson′s ‘There Will Be Blood’ and ‘The Master’ (two masterpieces, in my eyes). Set in 1970 Los Angeles, ‘Inherent Vice’ follows the drug-fueled detective Larry “Doc” Sportello (Phoenix) as he investigates the case of a kidnapped girl.
Morgan Freeman is reportedly set to join ‘Ted 2,’ the comedy sequel which sees Mark Wahlberg back as the centerpiece in the ongoing saga of a man and his foul-mouthed teddy bear.

Amanda Seyfried has also joined the R-rated comedy, and several pop culture and A-list cameos expected in the sequel. Seth MacFarlane is back writing, directing and voicing the titular teddy bear.
