Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris & Seth McFarlane In New ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’ Pic
Universal Pictures has unveiled this new image from Seth MacFarlane’s western comedy, ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West.’ Opening on May 30th, MacFarlane directs, produces and co-wrote ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West.’ He also plays a sheep farmer named Albert alongside a cast that includes Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, Giovanni Ribisi and Neil Patrick Harris.
The film is described as a Blazing Saddles-style comedy that follows a cowardly sheep farmer (Seth MacFarlane) who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend (Amanda Seyfried) leave him for another man. When a mysterious woman (Charlize Theron) rides into town, she helps him find his courage. But when her outlaw husband (Liam Neeson) arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.
EW has revealed these first images from ‘The Giver,’ the adaptation of the Lois Lowry novel from director Phil Noyce. While there’s been a plethora of movies involving dystopian young adult novel storylines, ‘The Giver’ was ahead of its time, winning the Newbery medal in 1994. Starring Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgard, Odeya Rush and Taylor Swift, the film lands in cinemas on August 15th.
Jeff Bridges has been trying to make Lois Lowry’s 1993 classic ‘The Giver’ into a film for nearly 20 years. In that time, his kids became adults, his father Lloyd, who he’d wanted to play the Giver, died, and he got rejection after rejection from everybody in town until Harvey Weinstein came along. Jeff Bridges has took on the role of the Giver and is serving as a producer on the film.
Sony Pictures has unveiled 5 clips and over 15-minutes of behind-the-scenes “B-Roll” footage from ‘RoboCop,’ which hits the big screen on February 7th in the UK and February 12th in the US. ’RoboCop’ is directed by José Padilha and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. The screenplay is by Joshua Zetumer, based on the 1987 motion picture written by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner.
In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees its chance to build a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.
