Did you love Gone Girl? If so, definitely check this out.
From the author who gave us that thriller, comes another movie adaptation based on one of Gillian Flynn’s books. Dark Places stars Charlize Theron as a woman who survived a brutal killing of her family when she was a child. She revisits those horrendous events when she is brought before the secretive, crime-solving Kill Club who want to uncover the truth about what happened.
A still of Dark Places was actually released long before we got out first look at Gone Girl. Not sure the reason for the release delay. In fact, it still has no US date and only scheduled to premiere in Paris on March 30. Is it that bad?
The film boasts a stellar cast including Nicholas Hoult, Chloe Grace Moretz, Corey Stoll, Christina Hendricks and Tye Sheridan. Check out the trailer below.
Malcolm Ingram, best known for his award-winning work in Small Town Gay Bar, is back with another documentary. The Canadian indie director, this time, puts the spotlight on the wide world of sports.
The documentary, Out To Win, features a collection of high-profile LGBT athletes- some who have come out during their career and others after. It’ll also chronicle the history of LGBT individuals in professional sports and showcase aspiring LGBT athletes from around the world.
Based on the trailer, Jason Collins, Martina Navratilova, Brittney Griner, Billie Jean King and Billy Bean are some of the athletes taking part in the project. Out To Win premieres at the SXSW Festival next month in Austin. Check out the recently-released teaser trailer below.
I wonder if Fifty Shades of Grey had bombed if Dakota Johnson would be so prominently featured in the Cymbeline movie poster. Me thinks no!!! She gets fifth billing but somehow makes it over Ed Harris and Milla Jovovich above the title and the former plays the titular character. Gotta strike while the iron is hot, right?
Cymbeline is modern gritty take on one of William Shakespeare’s lesser known plays. Formerly titled Anarchy, it’s a story about a take-no-prisoners war between dirty cops and an outlaw biker gang. Cymbeline, now a drug kingpin (Ed Harris) is driven to desperate measures in this explosive film.
The film marks a return for Ethan Hawke to Shakespeare. Fifteen years ago, he starred in a modern-day take of Hamlet. Lionsgate releases Cymbeline in select cities and on VOD on March 13. Check out the trailer below.
Lately, Reese Witherspoon has been all about showing off her dramatic chops in fare like Wild, Devil’s Knot and The Good Lie. She returns to comedy in the buddy film, Hot Pursuit. It appears it was a smart move. The film has the potential to be this Summer’s sleeper hit based on the trailer.
Witherspoon plays a police officer assigned to protect Sofia Vergara who is set to testify against a major drug cartel. Naturally, hilarious hijinks occur as crooked lawmen and drug dealers pursue them. Love their reactions as they learn how news reporters have been describing them. One gets a little older, while the other more diminutive. I’m pretty sure you can guess which one is which.
Hot Pursuit is slated to open in theaters on May 8 during Mother’s Day weekend. Check out the trailer below and weigh in afterward. These two have fantastic chemistry.
From the man who brought us Say Anything, Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous comes another romantic comedy that is bound to be another classic.
Cameron Crowe chose Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone to helm his latest film, titled Aloha, which previously had working titles Deep Tiki and Volcano Romance. Wise decision to ditch the other two, especially given the tagline. “Sometimes you have to say goodbye… before you can say hello.”
Cooper plays a defense contractor named Brian Gilcrest who falls for Allison Ng (Emma Stone), an Air Force pilot, after he is assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii. Complicating matters is the fact that Brian reconnects with a former flame portrayed by Rachel McAdams. For all you trivia buffs, you might be interested to know that Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon were attached back when the project was being developed in 2008-2009.
Aloha was originally slated for last December but was pushed back to May 29, 2015. I’m thinking Columbia Pictures didn’t want it to conflict with Cooper’s American Sniper which has been dominating the box office since its release.
Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Jay Baruchel round out the cast. Check out the first trailer below.
The big screen adaptation of the 1960s series, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., has been in the works for some time now. Numerous names including George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe, Chris Pine, Matt Damon, Channing Tatum, Jon Hamm and Tom Cruise have been attached at some point or another. In the end, Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill were the ones finally chosen to star in the spy-fi action comedy film.
Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s period of the Cold War, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. centers on U.N.C.L.E. agents Napoleon Solo (Caville) and Illya Kuryakin (Hammer). The two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.
Hugh Grant also appears in the film, playing Waverly, the head of U.N.C.L.E. Rounding out the cast in the Guy Ritchie-directed film are Alicia Vikander, Jared Harris, Elizabeth Debicki and Luca Calvani. Check out the first trailer released by Warner Bros. below. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. hits theaters on August 14.
Judd Apatow’s latest comedy, Trainwreck, makes its debut next month at this year’s SXSW festival. Earlier today, Universal dropped the first trailer of the Bridesmaid producer’s next comedy blockbuster.
Apatow tapped Amy Schumber as the film’s leading loveable trainwreck who doesn’t believe in monogamy. She’s joined by several SNL alums including Vanessa Bayer, Bill Hader and Colin Quinn. Basketball star LeBron James also stars in the film along with appearances from John Cena, Brie Larson and Tilda Swinton.
Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s (Schumer) head by her rascal of a dad that monogamy isn’t realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo – enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment – but in actuality, she’s kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron Conners (Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something.
Trainwreck crashes into theaters on July 17. Check out the first trailer below.
While performing for the President of the United States, Rebel Wilson ends up showing off more than she intended when her uniform splits. Poor girl dangles like a piñata during a “Wrecking Ball” cover. This is just one of the new hilarious moments shown in the new worldwide trailer for Pitch Perfect 2.
After getting suspended for Wilson’s indecent exposure, the Barden Bellas enter an international singing competition in hopes they get reinstated. Unfortunately, no American team has ever won. Check out the new trailer below. The highly-anticipated sequel hits theaters on May 15.
