A large portion of the official line-up of films playing at this year's Toronto International Film Festival were announced today. One of those films is Colonia, a thriller from German filmmaker Florian Gallenberger. Colonia stars Emma Watson as a woman on a desperate search for her abducted boyfriend. She's drawn to the infamous Colonia Dignidad in Chile, a "sect nobody has ever escaped from", where she also encounters Daniel Brühl. The cast includes Michael Nyqvist, Vicky Krieps and Jeanne Werner. Three photos from the film have been unveiled, to give you an idea of the feel of this real world thriller premiering at TIFF this fall.
"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).
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.
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.
It's Comic-Con this week! That means loads of previews from all kinds of different movies. USA Today has revealed the first two actual photos from the upcoming animated short film Sanjay's Super Team, the latest original creation from Pixar Animation Studios that will be attached to the release of The Good Dinosaur, in theaters this November (two new original Pixar movies in one year, plus short films, huzzah!). We've featured a concept art piece for this short before, but these two photos show us the actual finished animation and how it all looks. It's a preview for Comic-Con as director Sanjay Patel is hosting a panel on Thursday called The Super Story Behind the Pixar Short Sanjay's Super Team. Take a look below.
It's not "who you gonna call?" this time, now it's "what you gunna wear?!" Director Paul Feig has debuted the first photo via Twitter of the Ghostbusters uniforms (but no proton packs?) for the new Ghostbusters movie, starring an all-female team of 'busters. Shooting is now underway. You can see the various nametags on the uniforms for each of the actresses starring in this: Melissa McCarthy as Abby Bergman, Kristen Wiig as Erin Gabler, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan. These new outfits certainly have an old, gritty vibe to them, and they still are jumpsuits, so that's good news at least. Beyond that, I'm waiting to see any actual footage though I've got a strangely good feeling about this movie.
As usual, it's time to get a look one of next summer's movies as we're getting into the thick of this summer. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson took to his Twitter/Instagram to send out a first photo of him as "Bob" from Central Intelligence, a new comedy from Rawson Marshall Thurber, director of We're the Millers. The film is about regular guys recruited to become spies, and he is one of them. "The inspiration behind this character 'Bob' has always been Tom Hanks in BIG with an added twist. He's a grown man who's extremely childlike and views the world thru exuberant and enthusiastic teenage eyes…" Yet he's an elite agent for the CIA. He also "rocks a fanny pack which holds his Bruce Lee quotes and a condom (he's always prepared)."
The new Scorsese movie is on the way. There have been handfuls of paparazzi set photos and other leaked images, plus news about production troubles, but after waiting patiently they've released an official photo from Martin Scorsese's Silence, which finished filming in Taiwan earlier this month. EW.com debuted this photo from Silence, showing actor Andrew Garfield as Father Rodrigues, a priest who travels to Japan to confront the rumors that his mentor has abandoned the Church. He's seen embracing Shinya Tsukamoto, who plays a villager named Mokichi. It's one simple shot but it's powerful and speaks volumes about what kind of film we'll be seeing. And I can't wait. I've got a really good feeling this is going to turn out amazing.
Nice orange suit there, Mr. Damon. Coming to theaters later this year is Ridley Scott's next sci-fi movie, The Martian, adapted from Andy Weir's novel about an astronaut stranded on Mars. Matt Damon plays Mark Watney, that astronaut on Mars, and while we posted a "first look" a few months ago, this is really the photo everyone's been waiting to see. Well, everyone should wait to see the trailer for this - because the footage is going to be the most impressive part. Then again, if you're a space suit nerd this may be your moment to flip out. The shot (which looks like a magazine scan) shows Damon in his astronaut suit for his mission to Mars, on the ARES III. It's a cool shot, with some of the Martian landscape reflecting in his visor. Check it out.
Meet your new Arms Dealers, David and Efraim. After making three The Hangover movies, what is director Todd Phillips up to next? This is his next project, a movie called Arms and the Dudes, "based on a true story" of two young men who were contracted by the Pentagon to arm America's allies in Afghanistan. Miles Teller plays David, Jonah Hill plays Efraim, to friends who suddenly start bidding on military contracts, but then they end up in-over-their-heads with the Afghanistan deal. This sounds like it might be really good, especially coming from the comedic mind of Todd Phillips. SlashFilm found four new photos posted online.
Well aren't these two looking adorable? Pathé and BBC Films have debuted a first look photo at the film Florence Foster Jenkins, the latest from director Stephen Frears following Philomena, Lay the Favorite and Tamara Drewe. In Florence Foster Jenkins, Meryl Streep plays the legendary New York heiress who became an opera singer. Hugh Grant plays her partner St Clair Bayfield. The two can be seen riding in the back of a car, heading home from (what seems like) a night at Carnegie Hall. No release date is set yet, and the film just barely started shooting, so this is a very early first look and we likely won't see this until 2016.
For the Horde!! Finally, after years and years of waiting and buzz and details, we have an official first look at one of the Orcs from the upcoming Warcraft movie based on the popular video game. Moon/SourceCode director Duncan Jones is directing the Warcraft movie, about the Orcs vs the Humans, following various Orc and Human characters. This time we get to meet Orgrim the Orc, played by actor Robert Kazinsky, who we just saw as Chuck Hansen in Pacific Rim. Over at Wired, where the image is from, they explain: "Orgrim's likeness comes from the masterminds at Industrial Light and Magic, who took concept art from Blizzard Entertainment… and merged it with photographs and scans of Kazinsky to create the orc." Sweet.
Gather round for your first look at a new film starring Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams. Out of Cannes, THR has posted the first three photos from Manchester-by-the Sea, the latest feature written & directed by Kenneth Lonergan about a man who returns to his small Massachusetts hometown to deal with both his estranged wife and the consequences of his brother's death. Casey Affleck plays the lead, while Michelle Williams plays his estranged wife, and the cast includes Kyle Chandler (seen in one of the photos). This is a very early tease as they're still shooting and looking to drum up sales buzz. We'll keep an eye out for it.
This sounds like it's going to be so much fun. The first photo from the new Michel Gondry film has hit the web. Gondry moves quickly and quietly when working in France, we didn't even know this was shot yet. Microbe et Gasoil, as it's titled (or Microbe and Gasoil), is already filmed and stars Ange Dargent and Théophile Baquet as the two boys, along with Audrey Tautou. This first photo won't make sense until you hear the plot, then you'll have a big smile on your face when you realize. "As the summer holidays approach, the two friends don't want to spend two months in the company of their families, so they build their own 'car' out of a motor mower and some planks of wood, and set off on an adventure on the roads of France."
