First Look Photos: Antoine Fuqua's 'The Magnificent Seven' Remake

The Magnificent Seven

Ready to meet another line-up of Magnificent Seven? Sony has released four new first look photos for the upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven, directed by Antoine Fuqua. The new "seven" this time are: Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Martin Sensmeier. The first shot below shows all of them lined up together, but the main two characters are Denzel and Pratt, who also have some photos together. I don't have a problem with the cast, I have a problem with remaking a remake and doing this story all over again. They already remade Kurosawa's Seven Samurai into the original Magnificent Seven and it's a damn fine film, no need to repeat that all over again, but that's Hollywood. Seven gun men come together to help a poor village fight thieves.

Gorgeous Posters + Photos from Park Chan-wook's 'The Handmaiden'

Park Chan-wook's The Handmaiden

The official selection for the 2016 Cannes Film Festival was just announced, and one of the films playing there this year is the latest work from Park Chan-wook, who was last at Cannes in 2009 with his film Thirst. Park Chan-wook has been adapting a novel called Fingersmith into a Korean version of the story, titled The Handmaiden (or Agassi in Korea), about a Japanese heiress that falls in love with a petty thief who works as her personal servant. The cast includes Ha Jung-woo, Kim Min-hee, Jo Jin-woong and Kim Tae Ri. I'm looking forward to seeing this in Cannes. In the meantime, these posters are gorgeous, truly stunning and I hope they bring more attention to this film over the next few months once it premieres.

First Look: Tim Burton's 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children'

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

"It' a weird family." Burton gets back to being weird with his next film, titled Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, adapted from a series of young adult books about "bizarre tales and photos of levitating girls and invisible boys." Now we get to see some of those bizarre photos about a peculiar family, with a few first look shots revealed for the film arriving in theaters this fall. "Weird kids: It's something that I’ve dealt with and been interested in for a while," Burton tells EW. The cast includes Eva Green, Allison Janney, Judi Dench, Ella Purnell, Asa Butterfield, plus the kids: Lauren McCrostie, Pixie Davies, Cameron King, plus twins Thomas and Joseph Odwell. I like invisible kid the most. Meet them below.

Follow Production on Luc Besson's Sci-Fi 'Valerian' on His Instagram

Valerian

In production now is Luc Besson's biggest sci-fi epic since The Fifth Element and I am crazy, crazy excited for it. I don't know if it's going to be any good, but I'm just really happy that Luc Besson is making another big, huge sci-fi space opera movie. Valerian, originally titled in full Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets, stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne (seen below) as time-traveling agents investigating a galactic empire. Besson started filming in January and has been posting photos every day to his Instagram. They're shooting for 115 days in total, with 420 crew members working on the production in France (via Instagram). None of these photos are major reveals, but I love that filmmakers are open to sharing images while they're in the middle of making a move. It's exciting to get a glimpse of the process. Take a look below.

Check Out This Impressive 'Warcraft' Installation in Chengdu, China

Warcraft China

Now this is cool. Legendary Pictures has a knack for putting on epic events (like this Godzilla installation at Comic-Con a few years back) and they've put together another impressive fan-experience for the upcoming Warcraft live-action movie. It's common knowledge that all of Blizzard's games are extremely popular in Asian countries, so it makes sense this installation is in China, where it'll connect with many fans (and it's expected to play very well in theaters). At a mall (the "Joycity") in Chengdu, China, Legendary has installed a "Warcraft Experience" that they've dubbed the "biggest free movie-themed exhibition ever mounted in China." It looks pretty damn cool, better than any other setup we've seen for this so far. Take a look below.

First Look: Keegan-Michael Key + Jordan Peele + Cute Cat in 'Keanu'

Keanu First Look

Aw, what a cute little cat, I hope he makes it out okay. With 2016 just around the corner, Entertainment Weekly has debuted their annual first look preview, featuring a gallery of photos from many of the highly anticipated movies coming up next year. One film I'm suddenly very excited about is titled simply Keanu. While it sounds like it could be a reference to the badass actor Keanu Reeves (I still hope it somehow is), it's actually a story about two "blerds" (black nerds) who have to infiltrate a drug cartel to rescue a stolen cat named Keanu. Comics/actors Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key star in the film, which was also written by and directed by "Key & Peele" veterans making the leap into features. See the first photo below.

More Photos of Michael Fassbender in the 'Assassin's Creed' Movie

Assassin's Creed

2016 is going to be an interesting year for video game movies. Two of the biggest adaptations in a while are set to premiere in theaters - starting with Warcraft in the summer, and eventually Assassin's Creed in the winter. We've already seen one first look at Michael Fassbender in costume in the Assassin's Creed movie, but with filming now underway, a few more photos have appeared. The latest action set comes from Empire, showing Fassbender in his iconic assassin's cloak. "We're striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can… We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We’re working hard to make this something special." View below.

First Look: Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel's 'Doctor Strange' Movie

Doctor Strange

Here we go. Marvel has unveiled the first photos of actor Benedict Cumberbatch in costume as mystical superhero Doctor Strange, for the upcoming Doctor Strange movie which is currently filming in London. However, they're just getting underway and Cumberbatch is still working on the physicality of the character. He told EW: "I’ve got to keep throwing these poses, these spells, these rune-casting things, everything he does physically… We haven’t played any of those scenes yet. I felt really self-conscious." These images are basically early promo shots, to give us our very first look at the character as filming continues. See below.

First Photos + Poster for 'Legend of Tarzan' with Alexander Skarsgård

Legend of Tarzan

More Tarzan? Yes indeed. While Guillermo del Toro never moved forward with his version of Tarzan, former Harry Potter director David Yates has been working on The Legend of Tarzan for Warner Bros. The studio has debuted two first look photos and a poster for the new Tarzan starring Alexander Skarsgård as the jungle boy. He's now living in London and is called back to the jungle, where they "haven’t been [in] an awfully long time". Skarsgård explains to USA Today that "it's almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast… This is about a man who's holding back and slowly as you peel off the layers, he reverts back to a more animalistic state and lets that side of his personality out." Very interesting.

First Look Photo: Gosling & Crowe in Shane Black's 'The Nice Guys'

The Nice Guys

A brand new Shane Black movie?! Yes indeed! People magazine has revealed the first official photo from the upcoming Shane Black movie The Nice Guys, described as a "half whimsical private-eye movie" and "spiritual sequel" to Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, the 70s-set story involves a private eye investigating the apparent suicide of a fading porn star in Los Angeles who uncovers a conspiracy. "Really great actors will feed on the other actor," Black tells the magazine, and it seems like he found the perfect pair for this next caper. The full cast includes Matt Bomer, Kim Basinger, Rachele Brooke Smith, and Ty Simpkins. This photo doesn't show much, just the two sitting together. Take a look below.

Lubezki is Sharing Amazing Making Of Photos from 'The Revenant'

The Revenant Photos

The master let's us take a look through his lens. Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, known as "Chivo", is very likely going to win his third Oscar for filming The Revenant, the latest from director Alejandro G. Iñárritu (they also made Birdman together). The film opens in theaters later in December, but is getting early rave reviews for it's remarkable cinematography. Every last scene was shot using only natural, real light - no Hollywood tricks or lightbanks, it's all authentic. Lubezki joined Instagram a few years ago, but recently has been posting shots of various people and scenes from the filming of The Revenant in Canada (which went on for almost a year during late 2014/early 2015). Many of these characters are background characters, but they're definitely in it. Lubezki is a true master and every shot he takes is stunning to see.

New Photo from Refn's 'The Neon Demon' Along with Release News

The Neon Demon

The Neon Demon is coming to screens soon. Variety reports that Amazon Studios has picked up US release rights to Nicolas Winding Refn's latest film, The Neon Demon, which has yet to premiere at any festivals. The report states that Amazon is planning to release the film in theaters next summer (2016), so it's not just an Amazon Digital only release, it's them going all out standing behind this film. "One morning I woke and realized I was both surrounded and dominated by women. Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty," Refn said about the idea for this film. Elle Fanning stars, along with Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks and Jena Malone. See the new photo below while we wait for more.

Meet Newt Scamander, the star of the new Harry Potter spin-off series, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. With filming underway, Warner Bros and EW have unveiled a set of first look photos.

First Look Photo from Derek Cianfrance's 'The Light Between Oceans'

The Light Between Oceans

One of my favorite filmmakers working today is Derek Cianfrance, behind the films Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines. Cianfrance's next feature is an adaptation of M.L. Stedman's novel called The Light Between Oceans, about a lighthouse keeper and his wife living off the coast of Western Australia raising a baby they find. Alicia Vikander stars with Michael Fassbender as the married couple on the island, and the cast also includes Rachel Weisz, Emily Barclay and a few others. This first look photo of Vikander standing on a bluff over the ocean is a gorgeous photo and the only shot we've seen from this so far. This is a film I have been tracking closely and I'm already impatient to see, don't even need any footage.
