The most unexpected Marvel character to hit cinema screens this summer has been Howard the Duck, who originally starred in his own George Lucas-produced film in 1986.

Angelina Jolie directing africa

Angelina Jolie‘s directing career is heating up fast. It was just three years ago that she debuted her first filmmaking effort, In the Land of Blood and Honey, and her second, this December’s Unbroken, is already getting great buzz. She’s working on her third film By the Sea as we speak, and now she’s gone and booked her fourth.

Interstellar

Great directors can get their actors to go to the ends of the Earth for them. In Interstellar, Christopher Nolan inspires his to go beyond.

Well — not literally, since we assume the film was still shot on Earth. But the film definitely sends them off-planet. And so does the new Interstellar ad, which shows star Matthew McConaughey in a strange alien landscape. Hit the jump to see the new Interstellar poster.

Update: We’ve now got two new Interstellar posters. One shows a vision dramatically different from the ice planet image. We’ll assume it isn’t a spoiler, given the fact that the shot is front and center on a new poster.

Force Majeure trailer

I literally just walked out of a screening of Force Majeure at Fantastic Fest 2014 and had to let you know about it. Thankfully for me, a new poster and trailer came out earlier this week.

Directed by Ruben Östlund, the film follows a family who are on a ski vacation. When an avalanche unexpectedly hits, everyone is forced into a life or death situation where they’ll reveal their true colors. In one case, they aren’t what they expect. That might sounds like the set up to some kind of horror movie, but Force Majeure walks an absolute stellar tightrope of tone, seamlessly going from uncomfortable to funny, then tense and human. It’s poignant, it’s hilarious, it’s beautifully shot and it’s totally unexpected. The film won a special award at Cannes earlier this year and has been slaying the festival crowd, myself included. Below what the latest Force Majeure trailer and see the new poster. Read More »

Low Down

It’s been a bad year for Elle Fanning and cinematic father figures. Her Maleficent dad sent her away as a baby, and her Boxtrolls dad mostly just neglects her. Her streak will continue with Low Down, in which John Hawkes finds himself torn between his love for her, his passion for music, and his addiction to heroin.

Directed by Jeff Preiss, the indie drama debuted at Sundance this year and is now headed for a theatrical release thanks to Oscilloscope. Also starring are Glenn CloseTaryn Manning, Flea, Lena Headey, and Peter Dinklage – which means we might actually get to see the two Lannister sibs share a scene without trying to kill each other. Watch the first Low Down trailer after the jump.
