Set for a August 9th 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).
Idris Elba’s Nelson Mandela & Naomie Harris’ Winnie Mandela Featured In New ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ Posters & Trailer
Pathe has premiered two new posters and the first trailer for the upcoming Nelson Mandela biopic, ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom,’ which is based on the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s autobiography of the same name. The film is directed by Justin Chadwick (The First Grader, The Other Boleyn Girl) and produced by Anant Singh. Golden Globe winner Idris Elba plays Nelson Mandela and Naomie Harris his wife, Winnie. ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ also stars Tony Kgoroge, Riaad Moosa, Zolani Mkiva, Jamie Bartlett, Lindiwe Matshikiza, Deon Lotz and Terry Pheto.
Anant Singh began communicating with Nelson Mandela about making a film based on his life while he was still in prison and acquired the film rights to Mandela’s book at the time of its publication in 1996 and development on the film began immediately when Academy Award Nominee, writer William Nicholson (Les Miserables, Gladiator, Shadowlands) signed on. The film tells the story of the legendary South African freedom fighter, spanning over seventy years, including his struggle against apartheid, 27 years in jail and his rise to prominence as a political leader and head-of-state. ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ arrives in cinemas on November 29th in the US and January 3rd in the UK.
With the release of the film on the horizon, Moviefone has unveild this new behind-the-scenes featurette for Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi thriller, ‘Elysium,’ taking a look at the origins and inspirations for the film. As a huge fan of Blomkamp’s ‘District 9’ – that film had style and substance in abundance – ‘Elysium’ is without a doubt one of my most anticipated of 2013. Further adding to my excitement is the top-notch cast the filmmaker assembled for the film in Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Wagner Moura, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, and Diego Luna. Look out for ‘Elysium’ on August 9th in the US and September 20th in the UK.
In the year 2159 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government official will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

Movies has unleashed this lengthy new clip from Guillermo del Toro’s action adventure movie, ‘Pacific Rim.’ Set for a July 12th 2D, 3D and IMAX release, ’Pacific Rim’ is set in 2025, the 12th year of a war against giant malevolent alien creatures who reside in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. To combat its annihilation, the planet must band together and use highly advanced weapons technology to eradicate the growing threat.

To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are synched via a neural bridge, called “The Drift.” But as the enemy grows more powerful with each attack, even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.
