George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright: that sounds like a very realistic hypothetical list of Best Actor Oscar nominees some year, but no, these are the male stars of The Ides of March. Femme things up with Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood, and Clooney has himself helluva cast for his latest directorial feature.
Sony has released the first trailer, which highlight’s Gosling’s moral struggle as an up-and-coming press secretary. It’s clear this is going to be an acting clinic, and likely a major Oscar contender. Can’t wait. The Ides of March opens on October 7. Hit the jump for the trailer and a new poster. http://collider.com/the-ides-of-march-trailer-poster/106180/
Promo Posters for Francis Ford Coppola’s TWIXT
by Jason Barr Posted: July 27th, 2011
If you were around these parts during Comic-Con, you may have already read about writer/director Francis Ford Coppola’s highly engaging Hall H panel for his new film Twixt. While I was off doing interviews somewhere with someone, the five-time Oscar winner was entertaining audience members with a live-cut of the film with the help of his iPad and musician Dan Deacon. It was also then that he revealed his plan to tour with the pic and essentially DJ the film via on-the-spot editing to be determined by audience reaction. Take that, 3D…
With all of this experimentation in mind, four promotional posters for Twixt have now landed online and can be viewed in all of their bloody glory after the jump. Starring Val Kilmer, Elle Fanning, Bruce Dern, and Ben Chaplin, the film will tell the story (in one way or another) of a declining writer (Kilmer) who becomes caught up in a small town murder mystery while on his book tour. The film will premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival which runs from September 8th – 18th. http://collider.com/twixt-posters/106148/
Casting Call: Jacki Weaver to Star in STOKER, Sarah Wright Joins 21 AND OVER, and Blair Underwood, Pam Grier and More in ON THE SEVENTH DAY
by Adam Chitwood Posted: July 27th, 2011We’ve got a few casting stories for you this evening. First up, Deadline reports that Academy Award-nominee Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom) is set to star in Fox Searchlight’s thriller Stoker. Directed by Chan-wook Park, the film centers on a young girl who encounters her mysterious uncle while mourning the death of her father. Weaver joins Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode and Mia Wasikowska. The script was penned by actor Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) under his pseudonym Ted Foulke, with Ridley and Tony Scott producing.
Additionally, Sarah Wright has landed the lead role in the R-rated comedy 21 and Over. Marking the directorial debut of The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the film centers on two friends who take their buddy out for his 21st birthday, which naturally spirals into an all-night adventure. The friends must ensure that the birthday boy makes his all-important med school interview the next day. Wright joins Skylar Astin, Justin Chon and Miles Teller in the cast. Hit the jump for the casting news of On the Seventh Day.
Set Photo Roundup: Len Wiseman’s TOTAL RECALL Remake and Woody Allen’s BOP DECAMERON
by Jason Barr Posted: July 27th, 2011 at 3:22 pm
Normally, I’m not the biggest champion of set photos. I just don’t understand what they prove beyond the fact that “Movie X” is indeed filming in “Location A” with “Talent C.” Nevertheless, when you give them a little context, I tend to care a little more. For example, director Len Wiseman (Underworld) told Steve at Comic-Con that his Total Recall remake was in the process of shooting a 15-day hovercraft chase scene (for comparison sake, chase scenes and other comparable action sequences generally take around 5 days to film). With that information in mind, I was actually kind of excited to see some images from that shoot pop up online.
In addition to the Total Recall images, we also have some pics from the Rome set of writer/director Woody Allen’s Bop Decameron. Granted, those pics fall closer to the somewhat bland example outlined above, but fans of Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, and Greta Gerwig may still find something worth checking out after the jump. Starring Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, and Ethan Hawke, Total Recall hits theaters on August 2nd. Allen’s Bop Decameron is currently eyeing an unspecified 2012 release.
