Lars von Trier has a knack for bringing out the best in his actors. Both Bjork and Kirsten Dunst gave career-defining performances in Dancer in the Dark and Melancholia respectively. Expectations and anticipation are high for his upcoming film which reportedly has a theatrical version and an X-rated one featuring unsimulated sex.
Nymphomaniac recounts the sexual history of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after being found beaten in an alley by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard). He brings her home where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushy branched-out and multifaceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
The film just debuted a slew of character posters featuring Shia Labeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, Skarsgard, Gainsbourg and many more in a state of ecstasy. In other words, orgasm faces. No release date in North America has been revealed, but it is scheduled to debut on Christmas Day in Denmark and Norway. Check out the posters below.
For all you hardcore monsters, today is your lucky day. Lady Gaga bestowed a couple of gifts for you. The 27-year-old “Applause” singer unveiled the tracklisting for ARTPOP which drops November 8. Among the tracks included are “Sexxx Dreams,” “MANiCURE,” and “Swine” which she debuted at the iTunes Festival. A couple tracks that pique my interest are “Donatella” and “Do What U Want.” The latter features none other than R. Kelly. Interesting…
Beginning the 15-track aural journey is, appropriately enough, “Aura.” Gaga just debuted a lyric video for it. The clip could easily pass as a trailer for Machete Kills since it features plenty of dialogue from the film. Even with the lyric clip, it’s hard to decipher exactly what the final studio cut of “Aura” will sound like given all the film dialogue spliced in. Check it out below along with the ARTPOP tracklist.
At first glance, the clip looks like a Funny or Die sketch. Then you realize it’s an actual full-length movie. I have no idea how they’re going to stretch it out for over an hour and a half. I’m sure this is one of those cases where all the funny bits are spoiled in the trailer.
The Starving Games is another cinematic spoof from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. I’m certain you’ve seen Date Movie, Meet The Spartans, Disaster Movie or Epic Movie. Their latest pokes fun at The Hunger Games where their heroine is Kantmiss Evershot played by Maiara Walsh (Switched At Birth). Taking on the Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson roles are Pretty Little Liars alums Brant Daugherty and Cody Allen Christian respectively.
Watch the trailer below which includes jabs at The Avengers, Oz the Great and Powerful, Harry Potter, Taylor Swift and much more. The Starving Games arrives in select theaters, VOD and Digital Download November 8th, 2013.
Carrie has nothing on this bitch. Next time you bump into someone, causing a spill, you might want to consider giving a heartfelt apology. Otherwise, you might suffer severe consequences, especially if they have telekinetic powers.
A few unsuspecting customers at a New York City coffee shop were victims of an ingenious prank to promote the upcoming Carrie remake. Such a brilliant idea. Their facial reactions are priceless as this young woman moves tables, chairs and a man with the power of her mind. I’m surprised no one ran out of the coffee shop faster while yelling “DEMON!!!” Instead of documenting it with my phone like one lady, I would’ve headed for the hills STAT. Watch these pranksters mind f**k some coffee patrons below.
This weekend Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney opened in theatres for a record breaking weekend. The film set a new unadjusted opening weekend record for October, which was previously held by 2011′s Paranormal Activity 3 with $52.57 million. When ticket price inflation is considered, 2003′s Scary Movie 3 is still on top with an adjusted debut of $65.11 million (from an actual gross of $48.11 million).
Although the film pulled in many eager viewers, I’ve heard that it didn’t live up to expectations and it wasn’t actually as good as people thought it was going to be. That’s disappointing because I was really looking forward to seeing this one as well but perhaps now I’ll wait until I can rent it on Apple TV. Did any of you watch it? If so, share your thoughts on the film in the comments. Also, check out how Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake‘s Runner Runner did in the list below of the top 10 films at the box office this weekend.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson is trading one superhero franchise for another one. He’s graduated to the big leagues. The 23-year-old English actor has reportedly finalized a deal to play Quicksilver in The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. Taylor-Johnson is definitely kick-ass enough to tackle the role. Quicksilver is known for his lightning-fast speed similar to DC Comics’ Flash.
Joining the highly-anticipated sequel as Quicksilver’s sibling Scarlet Witch is Elizabeth Olsen. Mary-Kate and Ashley’s sister’s addition was spoiled by Samuel L. Jackson.
Marvel hasn’t made an official announcement, but I expect that to come in the coming days. The Avengers: Age Of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015. What do you think of Aaron and Elizabeth joining the franchise? Sound off below.
Can you believe it’s already OCTOBER? I can’t. But that means awards season is here in movie land and we’re in for some killer movies in the next couple of months. After last month’s abysmal screening of Getaway I was scared to ever see another movie. These movies, however, have got me super excited!
Without delay, here are my picks for must see movies this month (with some serious awards contenders)
There’s no denying Bradley Cooper looks pretty damn fine with his signature shaggy long hair. With an extremely tight perm, not so much. However, he does exude a douchey vibe which is surprisingly somewhat hot.
Cooper isn’t the only one serving 70s realness in a batch of new American Hustle character posters. Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale also channel the disco decade extremely well. Each sports an appropriate trendy hairstyle from the era. That is everyone but Bale’s character, who’s the proud owner of a receding hairline.
Expectations are high for David O’Russell’s upcoming film. The last time he teamed up with both Cooper and Lawrence, their collaboration earned numerous awards including a Best Actress Oscar statue for J-Law. Set in the late ’70s, American Hustle “tells the scandalous story of con man Irving Rosenfeld (Bale) and his British partner/lover, Sydney Prosser (Adams), who are coerced into working with federal agent Richie DiMaso (Cooper). The pair soon find themselves seduced by the wealth of New Jersey power players and the mafia — but Irving’s wife, Rosalyn (Lawrence), could be the one to end it all.”
American Hustle hits theaters on December 13 in limited release and everywhere on Christmas Day. Check out the rest of the posters below. It’s all about the hair.
