First Look Photo: Matthew McConaughey & Edgar Ramirez in 'Gold'

Gold First Look

Time for a first look - just one photo via from the new film titled simply Gold, being directed by Stephen Gaghan. The film stars Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez as an "unlikely pair" who team up when they find one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle. The full cast includes Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bryce Dallas Howard, but none of them are seen in this shot. The photo is just Ramirez and McConaughey, face to face, in the jungle. We'll have to wait until a trailer debuts to get a better sense of where this is going, and if it turns out these guys are trying to save the jungle or profit from it. In the meantime, take a look below and stay tuned for more on this film from Black Bear Pictures/Hwy61.

First Look: Woody Harrelson as LBJ in Rob Reiner's New 'LBJ' Biopic

Woody Harrelson

Impressive. Rob Reiner's got a new project in the works that just started filming, titled LBJ, a biopic about LBJ – or Lyndon B. Johnson, the 36th President of the United States. Playing LBJ in the film is Oscar nominated actor Woody Harrelson, last seen in Out of the Furnace aside from The Hunger Games. Even though filming just started, has debuted the first photo showing Harrelson in full-on make-up and wardrobe looking unrecognizable, as Woody. He actually does pull off the LBJ look, seen in the comparison photo above. We should also mention that Bryan Cranston is also playing LBJ in the cinematic version of All the Way, which was a Broadway show that he won a Tony for appearing in. Two competing LBJs coming up.

First Look: Kellan Lutz & Daniel MacPherson in Sci-Fi Action 'SFv1'

SFv1 First Look

Nice guns. There's a new sci-fi action film in the works, and it's time for our first look. THR has debuted the first photo from the set of the movie SFv1, being directed by Shane Abbess. SFv1 stars Kellan Lutz and Daniel MacPherson in a time of interplanetary colonization. Lutz plays a "mysterious drifter" who befriends a "military contractor", played by MacPherson, in a "global crisis". Vague details, but at least the photo has some cool weapons in it. The project is currently being shown off at the Toronto Film Festival market, with footage being previewed for buyers, even though it's filming in Australia. XYZ Films is repping. See below.

First Look: Matt Damon Back as Jason Bourne on Set of New Movie

Matt Damon as Jason Bourne

Bourne is back!! The real Jason Bourne, not that "I need my chems!" guy. Even though the trilogy wrapped up nicely with The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, Matt Damon is back again and has started filming the new Bourne movie due out next summer. Producer Frank Marshall posted a photo on Twitter from the set, showing Damon in shape and looking like he's ready to kick some ass again. While there still is no official title for this new film, Marshall included the hashtag "#Bourne2016". The plot is being kept under wraps, but it's good to see him back. Hopefully this will turn out good as Paul Greengrass is directing. Take a look!

First Look: New Photos from Christmas Horror 'Krampus' Unwrapped

Krampus Photos

The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while Krampus is figuring out how to rip off their heads. The first photos from the upcoming Christmas horror Krampus have been revealed via USA Today. From the same director who reinvented Halloween horror with Trick 'r Treat, Mike Dougherty is next bringing us Krampus, starring Adam Scott, Toni Collette, Allison Tolman, David Koechner and many others. It's about the Krampus monster (seen in a shrouded silhouette below) who comes to haunt children. I saw some footage from this at Comic-Con and it looks damn good. Until the trailer hits, check out these photos.

First Look: Michael Fassbender in Costume for 'Assassin's Creed' Movie

Assassin's Creed Movie

Meet Callum Lynch. Fox has unveiled the first photo of Michael Fassbender playing the lead character in an Assassin's Creed movie. We've been covering this one for years, as they've been developing it for a long long time ever since the Assassin's Creed game series became a huge hit. Lynch is actually a new character created for the film, and they're telling a story that isn't from any of the games. "After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he's poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day." Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams and Ariane Labed also star, but are not pictured yet. Looks good so far.

First Look: Cate Blanchett, Robert Redford in James Vanderbilt's 'Truth'

James Vanderbilt's Truth

Get your first look right here! Sony Pictures Classics has revealed a photo from the upcoming film Truth, which is the directorial debut of screenwriter James Vanderbilt (of The Rundown, Zodiac, The Losers, The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2, White House Down). The film stars Robert Redford as Dan Rather, and Cate Blanchett as Mary Mapes, and presents a behind-the-scenes look inside CBS News during Rather's final days there. This photo only shows Blanchett in the make-up room with Redford as Rather, though you can barely see him only through a mirror. At least it's something, and puts this on the map for the awards season as we end the summer and head deeper into the fall. Blanchett is always one to watch. See below.

Photos from 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Provide a First Look at the Villain

X-Men: Apocalypse

"Who the [bleep] are you?" That's the first line out of Magneto when he first meets Apocalypse. "Come and see…" is his reply. It's unlikely that 20th Century Fox will release the Comic-Con footage for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, despite it leaking online. Instead, they've let Entertainment Weekly debut a new set of photos showing us a good look at Apocalypse as well as the rest of the cast. The mag also debuted a new cover, but it's Photoshopped so much it doesn't even look like Apocalypse anymore (refer to photos). Oscar Isaac plays the villain. We also can see: Michael Fassbender, Olivia Munn (as Psylocke), Alexandra Shipp (as Storm), Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne, James McAvoy + Evan Peters (as Quicksilver).

First Look: Paul Feig's New 'Ghostbusters' Team Official Cast Photo


Who you gonna call?! These women! To 'bust some ghosts, and clean up the supernatural haunting your neighborhood. Yesterday, a paparazzi shot of all four Ghostbusters stars in their jumpsuits leaked to the internet. So to follow-up, director Paul Feig has tweeted out the first full image of the four new 'busters in front of the Ecto-1 (also revealed this week). Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones star as the new Ghostbusters, and we get to see all four of them in this shot. I love the look of all of them, each one is unique, and it looks like this is going to be so much fun. This is our first official look.

First Look: Paul Feig's Vintage Ecto-1 from the New 'Ghostbusters'

Ghostbusters Ecto-1

What are they gonna drive? A truck? A car? Nah, the Ecto-1 of course! Director Paul Feig has revealed the first two photos of the brand new vintage Ecto-1 from new Ghostbusters movie in the works. The original Ecto-1 was a 1959 Cadillac professional chassis, this seems to be a slightly newer model, but not by much. This certainly looks like the kind of hunk of junk Melissa McCarthy's character has had in her garage since she was a kid, and they've requisitioned it to 'bust some ghosts. Feig also posted a shot of the backside of the car, which shows the classic Ecto-1 license plate clearly. I like the look of this. At least it wasn't modernized.
