First Teaser for Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children
"A father must avenge his son!" Time for some Norwegian revenge. The UK trailer for Hans Petter Moland's new film In Order of Disappearance has debuted, featuring the always-awesome Stellan Skarsgård as well as an impressive Norwegian ensemble cast. The film's structure involves following the deaths of many people, with the madness beginning when Skarsgård's son is found dead. It turns out he was involved in a drug ring and Skarsgård goes a bit crazy and takes on the entire clan, single-handed. It's a very dark, but incredibly fun thriller about the cold, snowy world of Norway. I highly recommend the film after first seeing it in Berlin and I hope it gets a strong US release soon enough. We'll be following it. Until then - have fun!
Over the weekend, an unsubstantiated rumor claimed that Disney had plans to release the original cuts of the Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray, without all the "Special Edition" alterations made to the films when they were re-released in theaters in 1997. With the exception of a limited DVD release, the unaltered, original cuts haven't been available in high-definition, so that would be awesome. However, Badass Digest smartly pointed out that Fox owns the rights to those films, so it's not really up to Disney whether or not that happens unless some serious negotiations are done (and that's not out of the question). In the meantime, a video from Geeks are Sexy (via SlashFilm) shows some big fans have taken matters into their own hands.
Following a pair of breakthrough performances from Ezra Miller in We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being A Wallflower, we haven't seen the actor get nearly as much work as we want him to. But now he's lined up what could be a promising indie project with Billy Crudup and Michael Angarano in the Stanford Prison Experiment. Based on the social study of the same name, the film has been in development for over a decade and The Wrap reports it's coming together with C.O.G. director Kyle Patrick Alvarez at the helm. This certainly seems like timely subject matter considering what's going on in Ferguson, Missouri.
With the forthcoming adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey on the way, if you don't know much about the world of BDSM, then you might be interested in checking out the documentary Kink, produced by James Franco and directed by Christina Voros. The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and we got a saucy tease before the film premiered, but now a full trailer has arrived as the film is poised to hit limited theaters in just a couple days. The doc looks as Kink.com, the Internet’s largest producer of BDSM content, and aims to explore the driving force behind this seemingly misunderstood fetish. There's no nudity or sex in the trailer, but the subject matter alone makes this NSFW. Watch below!
"If you want to survive, you must stay with us." Just recently, we highlighted two teaser posters for an upcoming sci-fi flick called Automata, starring Antonio Banderas. Now the first trailer has arrived, and it definitely has our attention. It seems like a mix of Isaac Asimov's I, Robot mixed with Blade Runner and a hint of District 9. It's gritty, with practical robots, and some impressive visuals for such a low profile sci-fi project. Of course, the question is whether or not the big ideas teased in the trailer are effectively transferred to the big screen, unlike the Will Smith attempt to adapt Asimov's classic work. Watch below!
If you've been on the internet at all the past couple weeks, you've undoubtedly seen the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a charity trend sweeping the nation to raise money to fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Many people seem to think that Charlie Sheen delivered the best video of this challenge by dumping $10,000 in cash on his head, all of which he was donating to the cause. However, Dave Grohl and his band Foo Fighters have taken this fun, charitable trend to incredible new heights by creating an elaborate recreation of the infamous pig's blood scene at the prom in Stephen King's Carrie. It's awesome. Watch!
Following news yesterday that Benedict Cumberbatch would reateam with his The Hobbit trilogy motion-capture co-star Andy Serkis for his directorial debut on Jungle Book: Origins, the rest of the cast has been revealed, including the role of young Mowgli. THR reports Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris, Tom Hollander, Eddie Marsan and Peter Mullan have all landed animal roles in the film which is a new telling of the orphan boy Mowgli who is raised in the jungle by the animal kingdom. In addition, Rohan Chand, the kid from Jason Bateman's comedy Bad Words, will play the jungle boy.
In case you forgot, there's still a remake of the classical musical Annie coming this winter, just before families get together for Christmas. This time it's breakout Beasts of the Southern Wild actress Quvenzhané Wallis taking the titular lead as an orphan who gets upgraded to the big time when New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) takes her under his wing in a mutually beneficial relationship used to boost his approval ratings and give Annie an upscale home for awhile. But of course, they end up finding a unique bond, and Stacks ends up wanting to have a more permanent place in her life. This latest trailer from the United Kingdom goes into full-on musical mode in the Big Apple. Watch now!
For anyone who grew up when Nintendo 64 was new and popular, the James Bond game GoldenEye is easily one of the best games from that time. Today there are still plenty of people who held on to their system and play the game with their friends. But what if you could play the game with James Bond himself? Well, that's exactly what Jimmy Fallon did on "The Tonight Show" last night when Pierce Brosnan came on the show to promote The November Man, the film hitting theaters next week and that also just had a sequel announced to be in development. So did Brosnan hold his own against Fallon at all? Watch below!
15 miles from paradise...one man will do anything to tell the world everything. One of the formative films in my early years exploring cinema was City of God, about the impoverished and corrupt reality of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While the film has gone on to much acclaim, a new poster organization has decided to make their first artwork for Fernando Meirelles' City of God, released in 2002. "A business years in the making, FAMP Art was founded to bridge the gap between pop culture art and art house cinema, focusing on films that don’t get much love in the art community but are praised in the world of cinema (and that we ourselves love)." Sounds like they're challenging Mondo and Gallery1988 and I like it, especially debuting with this.
Last fall, Pixar Animation had to push back the release of The Good Dinosaur from an initial release this past summer back to November 25th, 2015. The news came just a few weeks after we learned Bob Peterson had been removed from the film as director and a brain trust consisting of John Lasseter, Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, replacement Brave director Mark Andrews, and Party Cloudy short director Pete Sohn were put in place to take over the project. Now we have word that Pixar has completely overhauled the film as voice star John Lithgow says the film has been drastically changed for the better.
In what feels like an effort to get audiences more interested in next week's release of the new action thriller The November Man starring Pierce Brosnan, Relativity Media has announced pre-production on a sequel. In the first film, Brosnan plays Peter Devereaux, a lethal and highly trained ex-CIA agent enjoying a quiet life in Switzerland. Lured out of retirement, he must protect valuable witness, Alice Fournier, (Olga Kurylenko), which suddenly marks him a target of his former friend and CIA protégé David Mason (Luke Bracey). Sounds like Brosnan has found a new franchise to follow his time as James Bond from years ago.
