From Universal Pictures, once the home for literature’s most horrifying characters, ‘Dracula Untold’ stars Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Diarmaid Murtagh and Samantha Barks. The story is a mix of mythology and history as it follows the story of Vlad III Țepeș (Evans), the inspiration for the Dracula character popularized by Bram Stoker’s novel. Set for October 3rd in the UK and Ireland and October 17th in the US, Gary Shore is directing the film.
The good people over at Film4 have debuted this new clip from Yann Demange’s critically acclaimed ’71. The thriller centers on a young British soldier (Jack O’Connell) who is accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot on the streets of Belfast in 1971. Unable to tell friend from foe, and increasingly wary of his own comrades, he must survive the night alone and find his way to safety through a disorientating, alien and deadly landscape.
Paul Anderson, Richard Dormer, Sean Harris, Martin McCann, Charlie Murphy, Sam Reid, Killian Scott, David Wilmot, Jack Lowden and Jim Sturgeon round out the cast. Written by Gregory Burke, ‘71 is Yann Demange’s feature debut after directing TV series including the award-winning ‘Top Boy’ for Channel 4. Recently seen in ’300: Rise Of An Empire’ and ‘Starred Up,’ Jack O’Connell’s portrayal of World War II hero Louis Zamperini in Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken’ is already generating award season chatter. ’71 opens on October 10th in the UK. Expect word on a US release date shortly.
The first trailer has arrived online for Tim Burton’s ‘Big Eyes,’ which is set for a December 25th release in the US and a December 26th bow in the UK. Starring Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Danny Huston, Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman and Terence Stamp, the film is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters 1950s and early 1960s. The artist earned staggering notoriety by revolutionizing the commercialization and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered though: Keane’s were actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret (Adams). The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a lie that had grown to gigantic proportions.
