2 New Pics From Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Directorial Debut ‘Don Jon’ – Also Starring Scarlett Johansson & Julianne Moore
These two news stills have landed online from Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, ‘Don Jon.’ Besides directional duties on the film, Gordon-Levitt wrote the script and stars as a modern day Don Juan who sets out to become a less selfish person after meeting a recently widowed older woman (Julianne Moore). Scarlett Johansson co-stars in the dark comedy alongside Tony Danza, Glenne Headly, Brie Larson and Rob Brown. Set for a September 27th release in the US and a November 15th bow in the UK, the synopsis for ‘Don Jon’ can be read below.
Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old-fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to “pull” a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn’t compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old-fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she’s determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old-fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Relativity Media has let out the hatch this new image from Scott Cooper’s (Crazy Heart) upcoming revenge-thriller, ‘Out Of The Furnace.’ Christian Bale stars in the film as Russell Baze alongside Casey Affleck as Rodney Baze Jr, Russell’s younger brother. Zoe Saldana plays Bale’s love interest Lena Warren and Sam Shepard will play Red, Russell and Rodney Baze’s uncle. Woody Harrelson plays the brutal crime boss Curtis and Forest Whitaker plays Wesley Barnes, the Sheriff of Braddock. Willem Dafoe also stars.
‘Out of the Furnace’ is a drama about fate, circumstance, and redemption. Russell (Bale) and his younger brother Rodney (Affleck) live in the economically depressed Rust Belt, and have always dreamed of escaping and finding better lives. But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother is lured into one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast – a mistake that will almost cost him everything. Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother. ‘Out Of The Furnace’ opens in cinemas on December 6th in the US and on January 31st in the UK.
Awesome Photomanipulation Of Ben Affleck As Batman For ‘Batman Vs Superman’/The ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel
Alemarques21 has put together this great fan-made photomanipulation of Ben Affleck’s Batman. Warner Bros. Pictures recently ended weeks of speculation by announcing that Ben Affleck has been cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Zack Snyder’s still untitled ‘Batman/Superman’ sequel to this past summer’s ‘Man of Steel.’ Affleck and Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in Snyder’s as-yet-untitled project – bringing Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen and continuing the director’s vision of their universe, which he established in ‘Man of Steel.’ The studio has slated the film to open worldwide on July 17th, 2015.
Last month’s surprise announcement of the new movie featuring both Superman and Batman created a wave of excitement and immediately fueled discussion and debate about who would put on the cape and cowl of Bruce Wayne’s alter ego. Zack Snyder re-imagined the origin of Clark Kent/Superman in the worldwide blockbuster ‘Man of Steel,’ which has earned more than $650 million worldwide to date, and climbing. The director will now create an original vision of Batman and his world for the film that brings the two DC Comics icons together. Ben Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman/Clark Kent. The film will also reunite ‘Man of Steel’ stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
According to Heat Vision, Thai action star Tony Jaa is joining the heavy-duty cast of ‘Fast and Furious 7.’ The latest installment in the Fast & Furious franchise already has Jason Statham on-board as the villain, one of several new additions to a series that stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriquez and Dwayne Johnson. Ronda Rousey is also in talks to come in for a cameo. The ‘Fast and Furious 7′ script is still being written by longtime franchise player Chris Morgan so details are sketchy and Jaa’s part in the international action pic remains unknown.
Tony Jaa is a stuntman-turned-actor who’s perhaps best known for his three ‘Ong Bak’ films, which were global hits. ‘Fast and Furious 7′ will be his English-language debut as well as his first studio picture.
