UPDATE: trailer and poster removed – not the final versions.
This first teaser poster and trailer has hit the web for the fantasy/thriller ‘Horns.’ Directed by Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D, High Tension) and based on Joe Hill’s popular novel of the same name, ‘Horns’ follows Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his longtime girlfriend (Juno Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses – an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.
The widely acclaimed book was on the New York Times best seller list for six weeks, and has become an international bestseller. The likes of Juno Temple, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner, Max Minghella and James Remar also star. ‘Horns’ opens in theaters and on VOD this Halloween.

First Still From Werner Herzog’s ‘Queen Of The Desert’ (Starring Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Robert Pattinson); Film Has Been Completed
A couple of quick updates for a project I’ve been keeping my eyes on for a good while now: Werner Herzog’s ‘Queen of the Desert.’ Firstly, along with releasing this above still, producer Nick Raslan has revealed that a final cut has been completed. Next up, another producer on the film, Cassian Elwes, has shared on his Twitter account that they’re looking to debut the film on the festival circuit in the fall (Toronto?). Expect more concrete word on this front shortly – fingers we get to see ‘Queen of the Desert’ before year’s end.
‘Queen of the Desert’ is lead by Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Robert Pattinson and Damian Lewis. Kidman plays Gertrude Bell, the iconic explorer, writer, archeologist and attaché for the British Empire who is credited with helping to catalyze the formation of the Middle East at the dawn of the 20th century. One of the first women to graduate from Oxford at the turn of the 20th century, Bell traveled through the Middle East, defining the borders of Iraq, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
