First Image from Steven Spielberg’s WAR HORSE [Updated with More Images]
by Matt Goldberg Posted: March 11th, 2011 at 8:35 am
While it could be nice to say it’s too early to consider any movie as a leading contender in the 2011 Oscar race, I’m pretty sure a Steven Spielberg war movie automatically gets printed on every ballot. Spielberg’s adaptation of the World War I drama War Horse centers on Joey, a farm horse that’s sold to the military and sent to the front lines. With the brutality of the first great war as a backdrop, Joey struggles to make his way home to the farmer’s son, Albert (played by newcomer Jeremy Irvine). DreamWorks has released the first official image from the film and while it doesn’t feature Albert or Joey, it does show off co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock), Patrick Kennedy (Atonement), and Tom Hiddleston (Thor).
Hit the jump to check out the full image along with quotes from Irvine on the film’s production. The film’s impressive cast of British thespians also includes Emily Watson, Toby Kebbell, David Thewlis, Eddie Marsan, and Peter Mullan. War Horse opens December 28th. [Update: We have updated this article with more images from the movie. Hit the jump to check them out.]

First Trailer for J.J. Abrams SUPER 8!
by Jason Barr Posted: March 11th, 2011 at 5:41 am
Paramount has released the first trailer for writer/director J.J. Abrams’ Super 8. We will update with our thoughts shortly. In the meantime, we wanted to get the trailer to you ASAP. [Update: Matt here. I think the trailer looks fantastic. It really nails the Amblin vibe that Abrams is going for and I like that there's more of an emphasis on characters and mystery than on special effects. This is one of the few films this summer that isn't a sequel or based off an existing property so I hope that it works out.]
Super 8 stars Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Zach Mills, Noah Emmerich, Ron Eldard, and Amanda Michalka. The film opens later this year on June 10th. Hit the jump to check out the trailer.

Darren Aronosky to Produce New Drug Drama INTRICATE for Director Brad Furman [UPDATED]
by CJ Simonson Posted: March 11th, 2011 at 10:34 am
Darren Aronofsky is no stranger to drugs and movies coming together; his 2000 drama Requiem for a Dream is one of the most haunting portrayals of drug addicts ever seen on film. 24 Frames is now reporting the acclaimed director is returning to the world of drugs in a new movie he’s producing entitled Intricate. Brad Furman, the director of the upcoming thriller The Lincoln Lawyer, has been tagged to direct the film, which is based on a true story about a college basketball star who falls into the seedy underbelly of New York’s drug world in the 1990s. Protozoa Pictures, Aronofsky and Black Swan producer Scott Franklin’s production company, will be helping to fund the movie.
[Update: Franklin now tells 24 Frames that while he gave notes on the project and introduced Furman to a screenwriter, Protozoa is not currently attached to produce.]

New Photos From The Hangover Part II; Justin Bartha Says Doug Doesn't Get Lost This Time
published: 2011-03-11 14:56:17 Author: Eric Eisenberg
We've seen quite a few images and even a teaser trailer from Todd Phillips' The Hangover Part II, but each one has made us ponder the exact same question, a question first asked in the 2009 blockbuster: Where's Doug, a.k.a. Justin Bartha? Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helmes) and Alan (Zach Galifianakis) have all been part of the marketing, but we've been left wondering if Doug disappearing would play into the plot. While all signs would point to yes, the answer is apparently no.
The print edition of Empire (via The Playlist) recently ran a feature on the upcoming comedy sequel and Bartha says flat out that missing Doug won't be a part of the plot this time around. But just because someone's not lost doesn't mean that their absence doesn't play a part of the bigger picture, the actor saying, "There are similar circumstances, but he’s a little bit more involved." The story also features a bit about the cast's experience off the set in Bangkok, which apparently was almost as crazy as what their character's go through in the movie. Said Cooper, "I didn’t feel like we’d started the movie ‘til we were in Bangkok - things started getting crazy, people started getting sick. We needed to get it into our blood. Literally. On a bacterial level."
The article also came with two new stills which - surprise! - still don't include Bartha as part of the gang. You can check out one of the scans below and head over to The Playlist for the other.

Also on board are actors with more familiar film credits, and they're at the center of the first official image from the movie, which ran alongside an interview with Irvine in The Daily Mail. Check out Benedict Cumberbatch (of TV's Sherlock, Four Lions and Atonement), Patrick Kennedy (also of Atonement) and Tom Hiddleston (playing Loki in this summer's Thor) as soldiers on horseback in the image below.
