ladies-night

Here is another teaser trailer for director Ridley Scott’s upcoming film The Counselor [here is the first one] from a screenplay by Cormac McCarthy.  If that first sentence doesn’t tantalize you maybe Diaz’s back tats will.

The film tells the story of a lawyer, played by Michael Fassbender, who finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking.  The film also stars Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, and Javier Bardem in supporting roles.  Did you see Bardem’s hair?  It begs the question:  Who wore it best?

Trailer for Terrence Malick’s TO THE WONDER Starring Ben Affleck

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

to-the-wonder

We finally have the first trailer for Terrence Malick’s To The Wonder, and it’s pretty great.  There is little plot to be shared in the trailer but we know that Olga Kurylenko plays a woman who travels to Oklahoma to be with the man she loves (Affleck) only to discover that their relationship isn’t as strong as they previously thought as he reconnects with a woman from his hometown.

The trailer is very similar to his work on The Tree of Life which was dealing with the origins and meaning of life – now we seem to be dealing with love.

The film also stars Rachel McAdams, and Javier Bardem.  To The Wonder is set to open on April 12, 2013.

Click for poster.

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.  To say the people around here in the City of Films are excited for this would be an understatement; early reviews are even calling it the best Bond movie ever!

IMAX has an exclusive poster for Skyfall as the film will open one day earlier on IMAX screens than regular theaters. Movie goers will even be given this poster, lucky people.  A new trailer has also been released for Skyfall with little new footage but who cares?  It’s awesome to look at, and you can do so below.

The film also stars Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Helen McCrory, and Ralph Fiennes.

Skyfall opens internationally on October 26th, in North American IMAX theaters on November 8th, and in regular theaters on November 9th.

SKYFALL News: Runtime, Daniel Craig for Two More Films, and a Behind-the-Scenes Video

Skyfall-International

Well it seems Bond is back in a big way; not only is the longest running franchise celebrating 50 years but the latest installment, Skyfall, is set to go with a runtime of 145 minutes.  That would be a bit longer than Casino Royal and a hefty 40 minutes longer than Quantum of Solace.

There is also news that Daniel Craig will return for the next two James Bond films which leaves him slightly behind Sean Connery (6) and Roger Moore (7).  Sony Pictures will return to co-finance Bond 24 and 25, so let’s hope there isn’t another off again on again mess.

Skyfall also stars Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe and Ola Rapace.  The movie opens October 26th in the UK and November 9th in North America.

Here is a nice behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the opening of Skyfall with commentary from Mendes, Craig and more.

to-the-wonder

Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life) shot his “mysterious” romantic drama To the Wonder back in 2010, it stars Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Olga Kurylenko and Javier Bardem.  The film was shown this morning at the Venice Film Festival [read reactions here].

We have a lengthy synopsis to share for the film, and from what I’m told there isn’t much of a spoiler in here as Malick’s work is often hard to explain or up for interpretation anyways.

Two New Trailers for James Bond’s SKYFALL

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

daniel-craig

Two new trailers for Skyfall?  Yes please.  Bond is back people, and the folks behind Skyfall want to make sure we all know it.  All the Bond elements are here: big sets, gun play, sex, and action.  The one aspect I didn’t quite care for in most of the Bond movies is the not so hard to kill villain.  Well, Javier Bardem looks terrifying here and could very well give Bond a fair fight.

The film stars Daniel Craig, Bérénice Marlohe, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCroy, Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes, and Javier Bardem.

Skyfall opens November 9th.

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.

Warner Bros. Could Save THE DARK TOWER, As They Should

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

darktower

The road to The Dark Tower has been a bumpy one, last year Universal decided not to move forward with the adaptation of Stephen King’s epic series. Deadline reports all signs are now pointing to Warner Bros. as they are negotiating to finally bring the movie to the big screen.

We have heard rumblings of a movie trilogy and tie-in TV series set up at HBO with Ron Howard attached to direct the first film and oversee the other projects. The Gunslinger role was to be going to Javier Bardem, which would be perfect in my eyes.

Now Warner Bros. is paying screenwriter Akiva Goldsman to do a polish on Ron Howard’s script. The film is slated to begin production in early 2013.  More on the book series here on its Wiki page.

FYI: An adaption of King’s The Stand is also in development (to be directed by Ben Affleck) and could potentially see a crossover with Tower as the books both feature character Randall Flagg.
