After years of being in development, the adaptation of the period romance remix novel Pride & Prejudice & Zombies is finally in production, and a first look photo at some of the cast has surfaced online thanks to Entertainment Weekly (via SlashFilm). The film is directed by Burr Steers (17 Again, Igby Goes Down) and based on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name, following the classic romance we're all familiar with, but with the added complication of the undead putting everything and everyone in danger. Now a first look photo has revealed all of the Bennett sisters in the filmed, armed to fight zombies. Look!
Over the summer, we learned that Helen Mirren would team with Colin Firth for a military drone drama called Eye in the Sky from Ender's Game director Gavin Hood. Now some photos from the film have surfaced online from Empire showing off Mirren as military intelligence officer Colonel Katherine Powell, remotely commanding a drone operation to locate terrorists in Nairobi, and another photo with Captain Phillips star Barkhad Abdi. Meanwhile, Aaron Paul has also been revealed as American Steve Watts one of the drone pilots in the story who questions his mission when a 9-year old girl enters the kill zone. Look!
We already know production is complete on the forthcoming franchise reboot Terminator: Genisys, and now we're just waiting for the film to arrive next summer. Up until now, the only official photo released came from Arnold Schwarzenegger after shooting was completed, but now EW has given us a first look at Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Connor and Matt Smith playing a new character in the series. The new film begins in 2029 and finds Kyle Reese being sent back to 1984 again, however, the timeline is much different than when he was sent back in The Terminator.
Previously, we'd seen a colorful teaser poster for the comedy Absolutely Anything, a pseudo reunion of the infamous Monty Python comedy troupe with John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones voicing aliens who bestow magical powers on a secondary school teacher and watch what happens. Simon Pegg leads the film, and Robin Williams voices his dog Dennis in one of his final film performances. Now we have some first look photos showing Pegg in the film with his talking dog, and we even get a shot of Kate Beckinsale, playing a love interest. Will this pack a hilarious Monty Python punch?
Just a couple months ago we learned that Harry Potter franchise star Emma Watson would team with Rush star Daniel Bruhl for the thriller Colonia, unfolding in the midst of the Chilean military coup of 1973. Well, production is already underway on the film from director Florian Gallenberger (Honolulu and City of War: The Story of John Rabe) and a fist look photo has just been released, revealing that Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and foreign Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy star Michael Nyqvist also stars in the film. In the photo, he seems angry and threatening Watson in a church. Look now!
Just last month we reported on Dad's Army, an adaptation of a comedy series from the United Kingdom that ran on BBC from 1968 to 1977, taking place during World War II in 1944 as the Allies are poised to invade France and finally defeat the German army. The film stars Bill Nighy, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Toby Jones, Tom Courtenay, Michael Gambon and many more in the film from Johnny English director Oliver Parker. Production is underway in Yorkshire and the first photos of the cast have surfaced online showing off the Home Guard (volunteers ineligible for military service) at Walmington-on-Sea. Look!
Not only did the first teaser trailer for Disney's adaptation of Into the Woods hold back any of the musical elements of the film, but it also didn't completely show us what Johnny Depp looks like as The Wolf in the fairytale fantasy. But this week, Entertainment Weekly has plastered the Disney film all over various covers of the latest edition of their magazine, and we finally get to see Depp in full wardrobe. For better or worse (we're going with the latter) he doesn't look like a wolf, but rather just appears to be Johnny Depp with weird facial hair and a big hairy suit. I have a feeling that's not going to work very well at all. Look below!
Well hello there little friend! Pixar has a new character to introduce us to today, and his name is Arlo. He's a dinosaur, and he's a cutie, of course. Disney-Pixar has posted a short new video to their Twitter account @DisneyPixar with a message introducing us to director Peter Sohn and his lead character Arlo from The Good Dinosaur. The film was originally supposed to be out this summer, but ended up pushed back to November 2015, late next year. Word is the movie has been "dismantled" & "completely reimagined", which means we're not sure what to expect or if any of the early details hold up, but here's the latest little official tease. One note - you can see the lead human character in a frame in the upper right at the end of the video.
Meet Moana! Well, sort of, as she's off on another adventure and doesn't really have time to meet those of us landlocked in our homes and offices. Disney has debuted the first lovely eye-catching photo from their upcoming animated movie Moana, originally scheduled for 2018, now set for release in "late 2016" around the end of the year (this same time two years from now). The film is the latest from Ron Clements & John Musker, the two directors behind Disney classics like Aladdin, Little Mermaid and The Princess and The Frog. Likely inspired by Polynesian explorers, this film follows a "sea voyaging enthusiast" named Moana.
It feels like it's been forever since we've seen Will Smith in his own movie, but in actuality, he just hasn't done anything memorable. In the last two years, he's led Men in Black 3 and After Earth, both movie with their fair share of problems that people have mostly forgotten by now. Otherwise, he had small roles in Winter's Tale and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. But coming early next year, he's starring in Focus from Crazy Stupid Love writing and directing duo Glenn Ficarra & John Requa. Now the first photos from the film, also featuring Margot Robbie, have emerged online, and a trailer shouldn't be far behind.
Tomorrow, Disney is bringing a tease of Brad Bird's sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland to New York Comic-Con, and we'll have coverage of the panel shortly thereafter. In the meantime, it seems like a teaser trailer for the summer 2015 release might not be too far away as we finally have the first photos from the film starring George Clooney and "Under the Dome" star Britt Robertson. The film follows a Florida girl who dreams of the future while watching the launchpads of Cape Canaveral being disassembled. After getting into a bit of trouble while exploring, she finds herself in possession of a mysterious pin that reveals a vision of a place that gives her a glimpse into a better world. But finding it doesn't prove to be easy. Look!
One of the films sneaking up on awards season this winter is The Gambler from Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt. It's a remake of the 1974 drama of the same name about a college professor (Mark Wahlberg) with an unhealthy gambling addiction that puts his girlfriend (Brie Larson) and mother (Jessica Lange) at risk. Believing Wahlberg as an inventor in Transformers: Age of Extinction was tough, but the actor shrunk down 60 pounds to look like a legitimate teacher, and we have a first look at the film. Just like our glimpse at American Sniper came out of nowhere, expect the first trailer very soon. Look!
There's not much to offer this fall in the vein of films that will be in the spirit of Halloween, at least when it comes to major releases on the big screen, but there are some great indie horror flicks coming to limited theaters and VOD this season. One of those treats is ABCs of Death 2, the second horror anthology with gruesome and scary stories to go with each letter of the alphabet. We've already seen a twisted red band trailer for the flick, and now we have an exclusive first look at one of the segments, V is for Vacation, from director Jerome Sable. We'll also have an interview and a special guest blog soon. See photo below!
Nearly two months ago we learned that Clint Eastwood's adaptation of American Sniper would sneak into this years awards race with a limited release on Christmas Day before it goes wide in the middle of January. Now the hype machine on the film is starting with the first photos from the film starring Bradley Cooper. Based on an autobiography by Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the book recalls the soldier's own time spent as deadliest American sniper ever, called "The Devil" by the enemies he hunted and "The Legend" by his Navy SEAL brothers. Expect a trailer sometime soon too, but for now, check out the first photos below!
