Now Playing: Wally Pfister's Transcendence / Sound Off
After landing the role of Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik's Blonde, it looks like Jessica Chastain might head into blockbuster action territory after that. If a rumor from Schmoes Know is accurate (and they've been on the money lately with certain reports), then Chastain is currently being sought for the female lead in Mission: Impossible 5 the next sequel of the Tom Cruise led action franchise at Paramount Pictures which is already slated for release on Christmas Day next year. That likely means that Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol female lead Paula Patton won't be back, but the series has never reused any females from the previous films, making Ethan Hunt a less sexually driven James Bond of sorts.
"I don't want 'em here, players don't want 'em here..." Bring on the Soviets. Sony Pictures Classics recently secured US distribution to this doc, titled Red Army, which will be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival as a Special Screening. It's actually a hockey doc, about "the Soviet Union and the most successful dynasty in sports history: the Red Army hockey team." The first trailer has been out for a few months and now we can feature it with the premiere just a few weeks away. The doc "tells an extraordinary human story from the perspective of its captain Slava Fetisov, the friendships, the betrayals, and the personal dramas, which led to his transformation from national hero to political enemy." This looks really, really good. Fire it up below!
After playing a cosmic superhero in Green Lantern, a villain for Robert Downey Jr. in Sherlock Holmes and a crime boss in Kick-Ass, British actor Mark Strong is heading back into the spy world, but this time with a comedy. Variety reports the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy star is currently in talks to join the cast of Grimsby, an action comedy about a British black ops agent forced to go on the run with his long-lost brother, a northern English soccer hooligan. As expected, Strong will play the dashing secret agent brother to the soccer hooligan played by Sacha Baron Cohen, which makes for a rather interesting pairing. Read on!
Despite dying in The Avengers in 2012, actor Clark Gregg has been rather busy as Agent Coulson on the ABC TV series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." We're not sure if he'll ever make it back to the big screen within Marvel's interconnected cinematic universe, but he at least found time to make it back behind the camera for his second directing effort Trust Me. The film follows Gregg as a down-and-out agent that comes across a hopeful new client that could blast him into the big time. Gregg also brought fellow Marvel star Sam Rockwell along for the ride as his nemesis, and while it doesn't look amazing, it's probably worth watching.
When news of a Jem and the Holograms movie that was looking for fan submissions to fill the cast as singers, dancers and more arrived nearly two weeks before April Fool's Day, we thought reported director Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Justin Bieber: Believe) might be setting up an elaborate prank. But here we are almost an entire month later, and not only is the project real, but the four main roles have been cast, and a first look at the relatively unknown actresses in the roles has been revealed. With all the nostalgia for the 80s that has been heading to the big screen, we're not surprised, but this seems to be happening quickly.
As we learned last fall, the surviving members of the legendary comedy troupe Monty Python were reuniting for a series of live shows at London's O2 Arena in July. However, for those who don't live across the pond or couldn't get tickets, you should have no problem seeing this anticipated reunion of some of the greatest minds in comedy history. Picturehouse Entertainment has announced (via Deadline) that they will broadcast the "final reunion, sort of" on July 20th to movie theaters in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia and Sweden. That's only one show out of the 10 performances, but that should be enough.
"According to mythology, that's the inscription over the gates of hell." Following in the footsteps of The Descent and throwing in a little Raiders of the Lost Ark, the new horror film As Above, So Below from Devil director John Erick Dowdle and his co-writing brother Drew Dowdle will make you feel a little claustrophobic. A team of explorers go looking in an ancient catacomb under the streets of Paris to unearth one of the largest mass graves in history. But of course, they get trapped, and stumble upon a much darker secret in the underground system of secret caves and tunnels. This looks pretty damn spooky. Watch below!
The last time we heard anything about the potential for Super Troopers 2 had the guys from Broken Lizard saying that they were hoping to shoot the film last summer. But the season came and went, it's almost a year later, and production still hasn't commenced on the sequel, 13 years after the original debuted in 2001. However, it sounds like they're not done trying to make it happen yet. Stars and writers Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme recently chatted on the “Chewin’ It With Kevin and Steve” podcast (via ScreenCrush) and revealed the script is finished, and a studio has agreed to distribute, but they need money.
"That thing on these tapes is not your mother." Last month we saw Mark Webber encounter some terror in the trailer for the SXSW selected thriller 13 Sins, but now he's venturing into the horror genre with Jessabelle. The film follows Sarah Snook as the titular character, a woman returning to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a horrific car accident. However, rather than finding peace there, she comes face to face with a long-tormented spirit that has been seeking her return. Webber plays a friend who tries to help her with this supernatural mystery. Looks like a standard horror film, but the main character being confined to a wheelchair changes things up since she can't escape easily. Maybe it'll be good? Watch!
Following a teaser trailer last summer, nearly a year later, a second teaser trailer for the horror sequel and franchise conclusion, [REC] 4 Apocalypse has arrived. The film hits theaters overseas sometime this fall, and this new teaser shows off the demonic infection spreading on an oil tanker where surviving reporter Angela Vidal (Manuela Velasco) has been taken for examination. The official synopsis says she's infected, but it seems like she's not the threat to everyone else on the ship, so maybe she's the key to finding the cure? Either way, this looks like a fantastic way to end the suspenseful international horror franchise. Watch it!
Hot on the heels of the most recent final theatrical trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is less than a month away from hitting theaters, there's a new Japanese trailer that has the same vibe, but shows off some bits of new footage, mostly with Asian superstar Fan Bingbing as the portal-making mutant Blink. It looks like she'll make the fight against the Sentinels pretty damn cool, and there's a good amount of Jennifer Lawrence showing off here as well. And while this Japanese trailer uses the same orchestral Led Zeppelin cue, the editing doesn't work with it, and feels oddly paced. But there's cool stuff to see. Watch!
"If the mailman has seen my vagina, we're moving." We've already seen some of the R-rated comedy that will be on display in Sex Tape, starring Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a couple who are desperately trying to track down and delete a homemade video of them having sex that accidentally got uploaded to the dastardly cloud. We weren't thoroughly impressed by the red band trailer because the comedy seemed to get a little too ridiculous and exaggerated at times. Now a new green band trailer has arrived that's somewhat better, but still hints at some of the over-the-top comedy that's in store. We're hoping for the best. Watch!
"It's Voldemort - he's hacking him!" Thank you, the internet and people of this world, for bringing us such awesome and crazy creations. This one is a mash-up of Harry Potter and, well, Akira, to create a badass cyber punk 80's anime. It's made by YouTube channel Nacho Punch and borrows heavily from Akira, but is similar to their other recent anime video parodying Star Wars. I happen to think this one is a bit better, and is not only funny in all the right spots, but has some nice animation for a YouTube comedy sketch. It's only just a quick trailer (if only it was the entire movie or even a short segment!) but damn is it fun. Enjoy!
"In 1954 we awakened something." The cool posters for Godzilla, the remake of the monster movie classic from director Gareth Edwards, just keep coming. The latest comes from IMAX to hype the release of the film on the giant screen, which will probably be worth seeing just for the sound alone, even if the film wasn't shot on IMAX cameras. In addition, there's a new international trailer from Japan that has popped up. This time we get a time frame for when we first encountered this giant monster and tried to kill it, and the year just so happens to be the same year that the original Japanese film was released, so that's cool. Watch now!
