First Clip from Trent Reznor’s Score for THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
by Brendan Bettinger Posted: August 10th, 2011Along with the collection of new images and character bios, Sony uploaded a snippet of Trent Reznor’s score to the official site for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. In the clip, Reznor proves he can drone with the best of them, and I’m sure it accompanies a very tense, prolonged scene in the movie. Out of context, I just get a little creeped out.
This is the second feature collaboration between Reznor and director David Fincher after The Social Network, which earned Reznor an Oscar. Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig, and Stellan Skarsgård star in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which opens on December 21. Listen to the new music after the jump.
New Image of Liam Hemsworth in THE HUNGER GAMES
by Brendan Bettinger Posted: August 10th, 2011
I am very excited to see The Hunger Games, independent of however Lionsgate chooses to market it. The studio has unveiled new promotional material cautiously so far, careful not to overplay its hand too early. Lionsgate must have some stills in the vault that show off the audacious sets and colorful costumes featured in the book, but everything we’ve seen so far are fairly basic character images of Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth. For the most part, tonight’s new image of Hemsworth is more of the same save for the out-of-focus inclusion of a couple of futuristic cops. And I’m okay with that. The images and teaser poster are laying the groundwork for what I hope will be a flashy trailer that hooks those less familiar with the property.
Directed by Gary Ross (Seabisciut), The Hunger Games opens on March 23, 2012. See the new image after the break.

Morgan Freeman to Play Despised Ex-Magician in NOW YOU SEE ME
by Matt Goldberg Posted: August 10th, 2011Morgan Freeman will join Jesse Eisenberg, Amanda Seyfried, Melanie Laurent, and Mark Ruffalo in Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me. The story revolves around FBI agents trying to stop a group of magicians known as “The Four Horsemen” who pull off bank heists during their acts and then shower their audiences with the loot. Eisenberg will play the lead magician, Seyfried plays the technician who builds the contraptions used by the magician-thieves, and Ruffalo is the main FBI agent. According to Variety, “Freeman is in talks to play Thaddeus, an ex-magician who has made a career out of exposing other magicians’ illusions, making him a despised figure within the magic community.” It probably all started when he accidentally revealed the secret of the Aztec Tomb. It’s a shame because he demanded to be taken seriously.
Trailer for TANNER HALL Starring Rooney Mara
by Matt Goldberg Posted: August 10th, 2011
Tanner Hall played at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival but sat on the shelf of distributor Anchor Bay for almost two years. Now it’s getting released because of one person: lead actress Rooney Mara. Because Mara went and got herself cast in the juicy role of Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, there’s at least a name that can somewhat elevate the film’s profile and audiences can go “Hey, isn’t that the chick from The Social Network?”. It’s not much but it’s more than Anchor Bay had last year. .............. http://collider.com/tanner-hall-trailer/108537/
