Yahoo! Movies has revealed this first poster and batch of images for ‘Parkland.’ Based on the book ‘Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy’ by Vincent Bugliosi, the adapted screenplay is written by award-winning journalist and novelist Peter Landesman, who is making his directorial debut. ‘Parkland’ stars Zac Efron, Marcia Gay Harden, Billy Bob Thornton, Jacki Weaver, Paul Giamatti, James Badge Dale, Jackie Earle Haley, Colin Hanks, David Harbour, Ron Livingston, Jeremy Strong and Tom Welling.
‘Parkland’ recounts the chaotic events that occurred at Parkland Hospital in Dallas on the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, November 22nd, 1963. Part thriller, part real-time drama, ‘Parkland’ is described as a “ferocious, heart-stopping story of unexceptional people fighting for survival and reaching for heroism in an exceptional time.” The film is eyeing a 2013 US theatrical release around the 50th anniversary of the assassination.

Deadline are reporting that Kirsten Dunst is set to play the female lead opposite Joel Edgerton and Michael Shannon in Jeff Nichols’ ‘Midnight Special.’ Sarah Green and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones are producing with Nichols, who’s also writing the project. Warner Bros had previously acquired the script before setting Nichols to direct. The project would mark the filmmakers first studio movie with both ‘Take Shelter’ and ‘Mud’ successfully taking the festival route before being picked up for distribution by smaller distributors. In the film, a father and his 8-year old go on the run when dad realizes the boy has some kind of special powers. As an enormous fan of both ‘Take Shelter’ and ‘Mud’ I’ve got incredibly high hopes for this!
Natalie Portman Talks ‘Thor: The Dark World’ & Jane Foster’s Relationship With Loki: “I Don’t Think She’s Quite As Forgiving As Thor”
With Thor (Chris Hemsworth) transporting Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) to Asgard at some point in ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ Jane finds herself assisting the Asgardians as they face the evil Dark Elves in the Marvel sequel. As depicted in the trailers, the Dark Elves are so deadly that Thor must free his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) to help combat this new “greater” threat. Given what happened in both ‘Thor’ and ‘The Avengers’ this doesn’t sit very well with Jane who purposely slaps Loki in the face proclaiming, “That’s for New York,” a reference to the God of Mischief’s intended alien invasion of the Big Apple at the end of the Joss Whedon blockbuster. HitFix asked Portman if Jane feels this new evil is worth allowing Loki some redemption. Portman noted, “I don’t think she’s as quite as forgiving as Thor is. Often times we protect the people we love more than we protect themselves. But, he’s helpful in some places. Evil people can think like other evil people.”
Since the first ‘Thor’ film, Jane has always dreamed of visiting other world and her reaction to actually visiting Asgard turns out to be something of a surprise. “Things that she’s marveling at seem like high technology to her are like kids toys [to them] and they are such an advanced species that even though she’s this astrophysicist she’s totally inferior to all of them,” Natalie Portman says. “So, I think it’s a good humbling experience for her.”
Warner Bros. Pictures has set loose this latest behind-the-scenes featurette for the action-thriller, ‘Getaway.’ Directed by Courtney Solomon and Yaron Levy, the film stars the likes of Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez, Jon Voight, Rebecca Budig, and Bruce Payne. ‘Getaway’ is described as a “gritty, heart-pounding action thriller in which former race car driver Brent Magna (Hawke) is pitted against the clock. Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, Brent commandeers a custom Shelby Cobra Mustang, taking it and its unwitting owner (Gomez) on a high-speed race against time, at the command of the mysterious villain holding his wife hostage.” ‘Getaway’ arrives in cinemas on August 30th in the US and October 4th in the UK.
