First ‘Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ Image – Starring Steve Carell & Jennifer Garner
Disney has let out the hatch this first image from Miguel Arteta’s adaptation of the Judith Viorst book ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.’ Starring Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Bella Thorne, Dylan Minnette, Megan Mullally and Ed Oxenbould, the film opens October 10th.
‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life – a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his brother, sister, mom and dad all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one.
DreamWorks and EA have released two new stills from the upcoming video game adaptation ‘Need for Speed.’ Directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) and starring Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Kid Cudi, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Michael Keaton, Dakota Johnson and Harrison Gilbertson, ‘Need for Speed’ is set for a March 14th release.
DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” marks an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when the authenticity of the world brought a new level of intensity to the action on-screen. Tapping into what makes the American myth of the open road so appealing, the story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country journey for our heroes — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, “Need for Speed” captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting, while bringing to life the passion for the road that has made our love of cars so timeless.
