New Images from BEL AMI Starring Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, and Christina Ricci

A batch of new images from the adaptation of Guy De Maupassant’s 1885 novel Bel Ami have gone online. The film stars Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, and Kristin Scott Thomas and centers on a man who uses his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth in 1890’s Paris. The images feature Pattinson in passionate embrace with both Thurman and Ricci (you dog, you), so I’m expecting the film to be chock full of Pattinson’s bedroom eyes.
Hit the jump to see the images. Directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, Bel Ami is currently without a U.S. release date. ........... http://collider.com/robert-pattinson-images-bel-ami/111771/
International Trailer for IN TIME
by Jason Barr Posted: August 26th, 2011
An international trailer for writer/director Andrew Niccol’s (Gattaca) sci-fi/thriller In Time is now available online. Starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, and Olivia Wilde, the film is set in the “near future” when time is used as currency and people only live until they’re 25 unless they acquire more of it. As the story goes, Will Salas (Timberlake) is accused of a murder he didn’t commit and goes on the run with Sylvia Weis (Seyfried) in an attempt to stay alive.
I’m a shameless fan of Niccol’s so I’ll most likely be checking this one out. That said, based on what I’ve seen from the film thus far, the action seems to fall a little flat while the sci-fi elements and explicit social commentary keep me interested. Check out the international trailer for yourself after the jump. In Time opens on October 28th.
Zoe Saldana To Be Half-Angel In Dominionpublished: 2011-08-26 17:24:34 Author: Eric Eisenberg
This week Zoe Saldana is hitting theaters in Luc Besson written/produced Colombiana. While Saldana isn't a novice in the action film genre - both Avatar and The Losers had the actress doing some pretty sweet moves, her newest does a pretty substantial job raising her career body count. Now, according to THR, she's signed on to a project called Dominion, but judging by her character description she probably won't be killing anybody.
While story details about the project are slim, Saldana will be playing a character that is "half-human, half-angel" (we can only pray that its better than the cinematic abortion known as Passion Play, in which Megan Fox played someone with a similar description). Saldana has also signed on to produce the project. The movie is based on a pitch by Dean McCreary and Chester Hastings, who seem to have a thing for partially-religious stories as the pair wrote an early draft of the upcoming Machine Gun Preacher also co-wrote a film called You're My Angel, which is also currently in development. The project doesn't seem to have a director attached, but Robbie Brenner is also signed on to produce.
