New Posters for LARRY CROWNE, PROJECT NIM and SALVATION BOULEVARD
by Adam Chitwood Posted: May 18th, 2011 at 4:18 pm
A few new posters have been released today. First up, the one-sheet for Larry Crowne has been unveiled. Co-written, directed by, and starring Tom Hanks, the flick centers on a laid-off middle-aged man (Hanks) who goes back to college and strikes up a relationship with one of his professors (Julia Roberts). Additionally, the poster for Tim Marsh’s (Man on Wire) documentary Project Nim has been released. That film follows the real-life project in the ‘70s that set out to teach a chimpanzee (lovingly named Nim Chimpsky) sign language in an effort to bridge the gap between man and beast.
Finally, we have the poster for Salvation Boulevard. The religion-centered comedy premiered at Sundance and stars Pierce Brosnan, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Greg Kinnear and Jim Gaffigan. Hit the jump to check out the posters and synopses for Larry Crowne, Project Nim and Salvation Boulevard.
First Clip from TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON Features No Transformers but Lots of Male Insecurity

The first clip from Transformers: Dark of the Moon has gone online. Does it feature robots punching each other? Robots coming in from outer space? Robots punching each other as they come in from outer space? None of the above. Instead we see Carly (Rosie Huntingon-Whiteley) leading her boyfriend Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) around her “Starship Enterprise”-like workspace and introducing him to her boss (Patrick Dempsey). The boss shows off how successful he is, how handsome he is, Sam notices that Huntington-Whiteley is a supermodel, and promptly wets himself. Okay, that last part isn’t true, but you can smell his insecurity. You wonder why Sam just doesn’t say “Yeah, I saved the world a couple times with my giant robot friends, but those little trophies are nice.”
Hit the jump to check out the clip. The film also stars Josh Duhamel, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, John Turturro, Frances McDormand, Peter Cullen, and Tyrese Gibson. Transformers: Dark of the Moon opens in 3D on July 1st.http://collider.com/transformers-3-movie-clip/91586/
Britton, Oswalt, Huebel, Lynskey, and More Join Steve Carell and Keira Knightley in SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD [UPDATED]

The cast for the pre-apocalyptic rom-com Seeking a Friend for the End of the World has just kind of exploded. The film was already set to star Steve Carell as a man who is joined by a woman (Keira Knightley) to find his old high-school sweeheart before the world is destroyed by an asteroid. Yesterday, we learned that the talented Gillian Jacobs had joined the film and now we’ve received a press release announcing that a truckload of other great actors have signed on as well. Check out this line-up: Connie Britton, Patton Oswalt, Rob Huebel (who yesterday signed on to another apocalypse-based comedy, Rapturepalooza), Melanie Lynskey, T.J. Miller, Melinda Dillon as well as Aaron Brown (The District), Tonita Castro (The Sarah Silverman Program), Mark Moses (Desperate Housewives), and Bob Stephenson (Jericho). And this is all in addition to the previously announced cast-members William Petersen, Adam Brody, Rob Corddry (also in Rapturepalooza), Derek Luke, and Lindsay Sloane. How can the movie squeeze in this kind of ensemble? It’s a road-trip picture, which means most of these folks will probably only have a scene or two, but it’s better than nothing.
Lorene Scafaria (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) is making her directorial debut from her own script. Production on the film begins this week. Hit the jump to check out the press release.
[Update: We've updated the article with a couple of set photos featuring Carell and Knightley. Check them out after the jump]http://collider.com/britton-oswalt-huebel-lynskey-seeking-a-friend-for-the-end-of-the-world/91579/
