Announced to premiere at Cannes earlier today, these first two images have landed online from Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut ‘Lost River’ (formerly titled ‘How to Catch a Monster’). Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Saoirse Ronan, Ben Mendelsohn, Eva Mendes, Matt Smith and Rob Zabrecky star in the modern fantasy-drama, for which Gosling has also written the screenplay. ‘Lost River’ weaves elements of fantasy noir, and suspense into a modern day fairy tale. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy (Hendricks), a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son, Bones, discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.
‘Lost River’ marks Ryan Gosling’s first time writing and directing a feature film. Gosling is an Oscar nominated actor having starred in films including ‘The Place Beyond the Pines,’ ‘Drive,’ ‘Lars and the Real Girl,’ ‘Blue Valentine,’ ‘Gangster Squad’ and ‘Half Nelson,’ for which he received his Academy Award nomination. No release date has been set, yet expect to see ‘Lost River’ on the big screen later this year.
First Trailer For John Slattery’s ‘God’s Pocket’ – Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins…
From Apple comes this first trailer for God’s Pocket,’ the feature directorial debut of ‘Mad Men’ actor John Slattery. Lead by the late and incredibly great Philip Seymour Hoffman, the film is adapted by Slattery and Alex Metcalf from the novel by National Book Award Winning author Pete Dexter. Opening on May 9th, the Academy Award-winner is joined in the film by Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins, Eddie Marsan, Caleb Landry Jones, and John Turturro.
Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christina Hendricks star in this deliciously twisted comedy directed by Mad Men’s John Slattery. When Mickey’s (Hoffman) crazy stepson Leon is killed in a construction “accident,” nobody in the working class neighborhood of God’s Pocket is sorry he’s gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy’s mother demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle between a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please and a debt he can’t pay. Also stars John Turturro and Richard Jenkins.
This first official image has arrived online from ‘Dark Places,’ the feature adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel starring Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll and Tye Sheridan. The film is written and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key).
‘Dark Places’ tells the story of Libby Day (Theron), a woman who, at the age of 7, survives the massacre of her family and testifies against her brother as the murderer. Twenty-five years later, a group obsessed with solving notorious crimes confronts her with questions about the horrific event. Told in a series of flashbacks from the points of view of Libby’s mother, Patty, and her brother, Ben, Libby is forced to revisit that fateful day and begins to question what exactly she saw – or didn’t see – the night of the tragedy.
Christina Hendricks Talks About Working With Ryan Gosling On His Directional Debut ‘How To Catch A Monster’
In a recent chat with E!, Christina Hendricks opened up about her experience working on Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, ‘How to Catch a Monster,’ a thriller about a mother and son trapped in a dark underworld. ”It was truly wonderful and probably one of the most creative things I have ever worked on and most collaborative,” Hendricks said. “[Ryan] was tremendous as a director. He knew exactly what he was looking for, set an environment for people to be truly creative in a way that I never experienced before.”
Christina Hendricks commented that her ‘Drive’ co-star gave the cast something very rare in Hollywood, “We had the extraordinary experience—you don’t always get this with a film—we rehearsed for a week and a half to two weeks before. So we felt like a tight unit family…We felt very close. We’ve all been talking since and I’ve seen a bunch of them since.”
At the D23 Expo, Disneytoon Studios announced ‘The Pirate Fairy,’ the latest film in the Disney Fairies franchise. From director Peggy Holmes, the voice cast includes Christina Hendricks as Zarina and Tom Hiddleston as young rogue named James, who is better known by his future title: Captain Hook.

However, in the midst of their pursuit of Zarina, Tink’s world is turned upside down. She and her friends find that their respective talents have been switched and they have to race against time to retrieve the Blue Pixie Dust and return home to save Pixie Hollow. ‘The Pirate Fairy’ sets sail Spring 2014.
