Paramount Pictures has just unleashed this latest TV spot for ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.’ Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans) is directing the live-action CG hybrid take on the classic 1980s characters which first debuted in an indie comic before going on to become a massively popular cartoon and merchandising line. ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is set for a August 8th in the US and October 17th in the UK.
From Universal Pictures, once the home for literature’s most horrifying characters, ‘Dracula Untold; tells the origin story of the man who became Dracula. Starring Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Diarmaid Murtagh and Samantha Barks, the film opens on October 3rd in the UK and Ireland and October 17th in the US. 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. Gary Shore directs.
Last month it was first reported that Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling were being courted to star in Shane Black’s 1970s-set noir flick ‘The Nice Guys.’ Today we hear that Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up the film for distribution, putting the studio back in business with the man who created the ‘Lethal Weapon’ franchise for the studio in the late 1980s and who made his directorial debut with ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.’
Set in smoggy 1970s Los Angeles, the story follows Jackson Healy (muscle-for-hire, recovering alcoholic) and Holland March (private eye, practicing alcoholic), who are brought together by the suicide of a fading porn star. However, the dead girl’s aunt is convinced she saw her niece alive and well after the highly publicized incident. March needs money, takes the case, and within days, it’s blossomed into a far-reaching murder conspiracy, bizarrely rooted in smog and the U.S. auto industry.
From Warner Bros. Pictures comes this new selection of images from the tornado disaster film ‘Into the Storm.’ Opening on August 8th in the US and August 22nd in the UK, the Steven Quale-directed flick stars Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle Davis, Jon Reep and Scott Lawrence.
Jim Belushi Joins Keanu Reeves, Gugu Mbatha-Raw & Renée Zellweger In Courtney Hunt’s ‘The Whole Truth’
Atlas Entertainment and Likely Story have announced that Jim Belushi will join Keanu Reeves, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Renée Zellweger and Gabriel Basso in the courtroom drama ‘The Whole Truth,’ which is directed by Courtney Hunt. The film began production this week in New Orleans and marks Hunt’s follow-up to her Oscar-nominated debut ‘Frozen River.’
In ‘The Whole Truth,’ Defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Reeves), faces a hopeless case defending seventeen-year old Mike Lassiter (Basso) who’s charged with murder. The evidence against him is substantial: a knife with his finger prints and a near confession. On top of that, Mike hasn’t spoken a word since the day of the crime. With no information from his client and little to work off of otherwise, Ramsay enlists the help of Janelle (Mbatha-Raw), a young lawyer determined to find out the truth about what happened that day. Jim Belushi plays Mike’s father and Renée Zellweger plays his mother.
