Lionsgate has debuted this first poster and red band trailer for writer-director Jon S. Baird’s ’Filth,’ an adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s (Trainspotting) hugely popular novel. ‘Filth’ stars James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots, Eddie Marsan and Joanne Froggatt. Expect an official release for the film soon.
Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal. As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control. His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?

“NY Public Library” Featurette For ‘Oblivion’ – Starring Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko & Morgan Freeman
Following the “Sky Tower”, “World Of”, “Iceland”, “IMAX”, Earl’s Peak and “Bubbleship” featurettes, Universal Pictures has unleashed this “NY Public Library” featurette for writer/director Joseph Kosinski’s (Tron: Legacy) ‘Oblivion.’ Starring Tom Cruise (Commander Jack Harper), Olga Kurylenko (Julia Rusakova), Andrea Riseborough (Victoria Olsen), Morgan Freeman (Malcolm Beech), Mellissa Leo (Sally) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Sykes), ‘Oblivion’ is based on Kosinski’s own Radical Publishing comic book series.
In 2073, a former-Marine Commander Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed at Earth which was nearly destroyed by an alien invasion 60 years ago. As part of a massive operation to extract the planet’s remaining vital resources, he lives in an airborne “town” floating thousands of meters above the Earth. His mission nearly complete, Jack’s soaring existence comes crashing down when he rescues a female stranger (Olga Kurylenko) from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a series of events that forces Jack to question everything he knows about the war and its aftermath. ‘Oblivion’ is released on April 10th in the UK and April 19th in the US.

To the sounds of Florence and the Machine’s “Over the Love” and Lana del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful”, Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled this new extended “Secrets” TV spot for the much anticipated ‘The Great Gatsby’ adaptation. Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!) directs the ‘The Great Gatsby’ from a screenplay co-written with frequent collaborator Craig Pearce, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel of the same name – unquestionably one of my favourite books of all time. Lead by Leonardo DiCaprio as the title character, Jay Gatsby, ‘The Great Gatsby’ also stars Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Joel Edgerton and Carey Mulligan as Tom and Daisy Buchanan, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke as Myrtle and George Wilson, newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker, and Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan as Meyer Wolfsheim. ‘The Great Gatsby’ arrives in cinemas on May 10th in the US and Canada, with an international rollout on May 15th (May 16th in the UK).
‘The Great Gatsby’ follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
