While Matthew McConaughey has been schilling for Lincoln automobiles lately, we'll now get to see him on the big screen fighting for Abraham Lincoln in The Free State of Jones, a new Civil War drama from Pleasantville and The Hunger Games director Gary Ross. In the film, McConaughey plays a Mississippi man who defected from the Confederate Army and ended up banding together with a group of like-minded soldiers to set out to form their own state as the Free State Of Jones. And now we have the first photo of McConaughey in the middle of a Civil War battlefield, complete with a scraggly, grizzled beard. Look below!
After scripting thrillers like The Departed, Body of Lies and Edge of Darkness, in addition to making his directorial debut with London Boulevard, screenwriter William Monahan is back behind the camera for his sophomore effort, a new thriller called Mojave. The film was just announced as being part of the line-up at the Tribeca Film Festival next month, and with that news comes the first photos of the film with future Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac and TRON Legacy lead Garrett Hedlund. There's nothing too revealing, but Hedlund is sporting a new look, and the photos give off a pretty gritty, almost western vibe. Look now!
Production on Oliver Stone's drama about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden is already in production with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the lead role. The film is simply called Snowden and is already set for release on Christmas Day, so Open Road Films decided to tease the film early on with our first look at Gordon-Levitt as Snowden during his time in the U.S. Army in 2004, an element of his life that many people might not know about. With Stone behind the camera, we're not sure what to expect from this real-life since he's delivered presidential films like Nixon and W. on different ends of the spectrum, so stay tuned. Look!
What's next for the Oscar winner? How about another challenging role. The Daily Mail has revealed the first look photo of the most recent Best Actor Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne in the new film The Danish Girl, from director Tom Hooper (of The King's Speech, Les Miserables). In the film Redmayne plays Einar Wegener, a painter in the 1920s who decides to transform into a woman after he poses in their clothes when a model doesn't show up. He later became Lili Elbe, and this first photo shows Redmaybe in full make-up and clothing as Lili. It will make anyone do a double take. "We're looking at everything from a feminine perspective," Redmayne told them. "I think it's the most sensitive role I have played." Take a look.
A low quality image giving us a first look at the 80s cartoon come to life in Jem and the Holograms has been making the rounds after appearing in a magazine, and now Universal Pictures has released an official high-resolution version that we can check out. The original animated series began airing in 1985 and ran for three seasons, following the adventures of the Jem, the musical superstar alter ego of a young woman named Jerrica Benton who, with the help of a holographic computer called Synergy, is able to clandestinely perform rock concerts with her friends. But the movie may end up a little different than that. Look below!
We've already seen Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and of course, Henry Cavill as Superman. And now director Zack Snyder has given us another glimpse into the world of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice by posting the first image of Jason Momoa as the first big screen version of Aquaman. Snyder made the reveal on Twitter, just like he did with the Batmobile and the first photo of the new Batman, and this time the photo comes with the curious tagline of "Unite the seven." Could this be referring to the seven members of Justice League or maybe the seven relics of Atlantis? We're not sure.
Now that the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse has been expanded to include Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Mud star Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Drumline: A New Beat star Alexandra Shipp as Storm, it's time to focus on other aspects of the film as production looms closer. Director Bryan Singer just teased a piece of concept art from Grant Major (who previously worked on Green Lantern) showing a mysterious figure standing at the entry ramp to some sort of ship. At first glance, I thought this might just be the Blackbird, but many believe this to be Apocalypse's artificially intelligent vessel known as Ship. Look!
Last year, we heard about the new drama Spotlight, the latest film from Win Win and The Station Agent director Tom McCarthy. The film focuses on the story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe journalists who exposed the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of child molestation in Massachusetts, and a stellar cast was announced last year including Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, John Slattery and more. Now they all appear, along with Brian d'Arcy, in the first photo from the film which takes its title from the Spotlight Team of reporters who discovered this story.
Over a year ago, we got a teaser poster for Ben Wheatley's adaptation of High-Rise, the next twisted thriller after a series of masterful indies such as Kill List and Sightseers. And now the film is finally looking to hit theaters with sales happening at the European Film Market, which means we get a first look at the thriller starring Tom Hiddleston. The rest of the cast is pretty impressive too since it includes Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Elisabeth Moss, Luke Evans and Stacy Martin, though they aren't anywhere to be seen in this first photo. This is certainly one we're looking forward to whenever it may arrive. Look!
Right now, Liza Johnson's historical drama Elvis & Nixon is looking for international buyers at the European Film Market, and that means we get our first look at the film that stars Michael Shannon (Man of Steel) and Kevin Spacey ("House of Cards") as iconic rock musician Elvis Presley and President Richard M. Nixon respectively. The film tells the story of these two American men meeting at the Oval Office when The King asked the president if he could be made a special FBI operative. It's a true story, and one that has never been told on-screen before. Shannon looks weird as Elvis, but I really want to hear him speak. Look!
Coming this summer from producer Sam Raimi is the remake of the 80s horror favorite Poltergeist. This time it's Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt in the lead roles as parents who find their family threatened by a supernatural forced inside their new home. Monster House director Gil Kenan is at the helm, which seems all too appropriate, and now we have some first look photos from the film, including the iconic shot from the original film that everyone remembers. This likely means that the first trailer is on the way sometime soon, but in the meantime, these photos will have to do. But no sign of Jared Harris yet.
Disney has done a pretty good job of keeping the sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland under wraps. We've seen a teaser trailer and a Super Bowl spot, but we still haven't seen much from Brad Bird's summer sci-fi film, and most of the footage of the titular future city goes by so fast that we can't get a great look at it. But thankfully, three new images of Tomorrowland have appeared at the film's official website, and you can take a closer look at the city that still seems to be under construction. There's some gorgeous architecture here, cool vehicles, and clearly some things which don't have a clear function yet. Anyway, check out the photos!
Though we have no indication of when or if a sequel to the 2013 hit animated musical Frozen will actually come together at Disney, we'll get to see Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf back on the big screen soon enough. The gang will return in Frozen Fever, a new animated musical short that will be playing in theaters before the live-action adaptation of Cinderella coming on March 13th. And now we have some photos from the short that will have a celebration for Anna's birthday. It probably won't live up to the hype fans have created for more Frozen, but at least this is a theatrical short and not a cheap DVD cash-in or something. Look now!
From the wonderful teaser trailer to the most recent TV spot, Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have given us plenty of glimpses at Minions, the animated spin-off of Despicable Me. However, so far we've pretty much only seen the titular little yellow guys in action. But that changes today as we finally get a first look at Scarlet Overkill, the villain voiced by Sandra Bullock, who becomes the minions' new evil boss, before they end up meeting Gru. Director Pierre Coffin says, "Scarlet is an unusual supervillain. She is a dangerously charming woman, which could not have been easy in the late 1960s."
