With the film set to premiere this month at the Toronto Film Festival, EW has unveiled this new batch of images from 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 (Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend. 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. Expect a release schedule announcement shortly.
2 More Posters For Ben Stiller’s ‘The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty’ – Also Starring Kristin Wiig, Sean Penn & Adam Scott
Yahoo! Movies has revealed two more posters for ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.’ The film, directed by and starring Ben Stiller, isn’t precisely a new twist on the 1947 film starring Danny Kaye or an update of the 1939 short story by James Thurber. Instead, it’s a romance-comedy-adventure about a daydreaming photo editor (Stiller) who goes on a series of quests – ostensibly to locate a missing image (taken by a photographer played by Sean Penn), but in fact to find his true self. ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ is Stiller’s first directorial effort since 2008’s ‘Tropic Thunder.’ The film arrives in cinemas on December 26th. The likes of Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, Shirley MacLaine and Patton Oswalt also star.
Ben Stiller directs and stars in THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY, James Thurber’s classic story of a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker (Kristen Wiig) are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.
New ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Character Posters Highlight Christopher Eccleston’s Malekith, Chris Hemsworth & Natalie Portman
Marvel has just unleashed these new character posters for their upcoming ‘Thor: The Dark World.’ In the film, the likes of Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Jaimie Alexander (Sif), Idris Elba (Heimdall), Ray Stevenson (Volstagg), Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis), Rene Russo (Frigga), Tadanobu Asano (Hogun), Anthony Hopkins (Odin), Stellan Skarsgård (Dr. Erik Selvig) and Natalie Portman (Jane Foster) reprise their roles from the first ‘Thor’ film, while Zack Levi is confirmed to play Fandril, Christopher Eccleston will play the villainous Malekith The Accursed, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will be playing Algrim the Strong and Kurse.
Set one year after ‘The Avengers,’ Thor battles to save all the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. However, a primeval race led by Malekith, who is out for revenge, intends to descend the universe into darkness. Confronted by an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot overcome, Thor must reunite with Jane Foster and set out on a dangerous journey that will force him to make the ultimate sacrifice.
During a recent chat with SciFi Now, Jennifer Lawrence opened up briefly about Mystique’s character development in ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past.’ “I’m naked, but when I do get to wear clothes, I love the ’70s outfits. Some of the Mystique look is a little different, but we’re still using the same paint. But she’s different in this film too.” The Oscar-winner continued, “She was struggling – like a lot of normal humans – with the way she looked, and she was covered up a lot in the first movie, but this time she is Mutant and proud.”
Set for a May 23rd, 2014 release date, director Bryan Singer announced last month that production wrapped on ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ The seventh installment in the ‘X-Men’ film series began filming back in March in Montreal, Canada. ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ has the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning actor Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) playing the main antagonist in the film, Bolivar Trask. With Bryan Singer merging past and present ‘X-Men’ actors for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the director has Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Halle Berry (Storm), Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) returning for film – which is ostensibly a sequel to ‘X-Men: First Class,’ but will prominently feature actors from the first ‘X-Men’ trilogy.
Along with news that film has been set a November 29th release in the UK, Walt Disney Pictures has sent over this new UK trailer for ‘Saving Mr. Banks,’ the account of Walt Disney’s twenty-year pursuit of the film rights to P.L. Travers’ popular novel, ‘Mary Poppins’, and the testy partnership the filmmaker develops with the author during the project’s pre-production in 1961. Two-time Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks plays Disney (the first time the entrepreneur has ever been depicted in a dramatic film) alongside fellow double Oscar-winner Emma Thompson in the role of Travers.
Before actually signing away the book’s rights, P.L. Travers’ demands for contractual script and character control circumvent not only Walt Disney’s vision for the film adaptation, but also those of the creative team of screenwriter Don DaGradi and sibling composers Richard and Robert Sherman, whose original score and song (Chim-Chim-Cher-ee) would go on to win Oscars at the 1965 ceremonies – the film won five awards of its thirteen nominations.
Screen Daily bring word that director Bill Condon and actor Ian McKellen are teaming up for ‘A Slight Trick of the Mind,’ a feature film about a retired Sherlock Holmes. Based on a novel of the same name by Mitch Cullin, the screenplay is being adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher. The film is the second collaboration between ‘The Fifth Estate’ director Condon and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ star McKellen, who also worked together on ‘Gods and Monsters.’ Written and directed by Condon, ‘Gods and Monsters’ won the best screenplay at the Oscars and earned McKellen a best actor nomination.
Set in 1947, ‘A Slight Trick of the Mind’ follows a long-retired Sherlock Holmes, who lives in a sleepy Sussex village with his housekeeper and her amateur-sleuthing son. But rather than enjoying a peaceful retirement, the famous Baker Street detective is haunted by an unsolved case from 50 years ago. He remembers only fragments: a confrontation with an angry husband, a secret bond with his beautiful but unstable wife.
