Robert Zemeckis has been shooting his follow-up to Flight, and we’ve got the first look at the lead in costume, if not quite in character. The film is The Walk, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as daredevil Philippe Petit, who (with the help of a few conspirators) strung a wire between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in 1974, allowing him to do a 45-minute high-wire performance show above the streets of Manhattan. Petit’s act was chronicled in the doc Man on Wire, and now Zemeckis is crafting a dramatized take on the “the artistic crime of the century.” Check out the image of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Walk, below.

20,000 Days on Earth is a magnificent film. Mostly a documentary, the movie is a profile of Australian singer/songwriter/film composer/author Nick Cave. But the film is really about creativity, and songwriting, and memory. It’s a mold-breaking doc that willfully does away with the rigors of hardcore doc filmmaking by staging scenarios in which Cave can be provoked to reveal things about himself and his work. We see Cave in a therapy session, and driving around with people such as Kylie Minogue (above), Ray Winstone, and, crucially, former bandmate Blixa Bargeld. The setups may be artificial, but what comes out of them has a ring of real truth.
For your first look at 20,000 Days on Earth, check out the Nick Cave documentary trailer below, via the Australian distributor Madman. Read More »
After a few teasing images and a couple teasing video bits, here’s the first full-length trailer for the new season of Doctor Who, featuring Peter Capaldi as the twelfth regeneration of the Doctor. The first two episodes of the new season are directed by Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, Kill List), but most of what you’ll get from this trailer is a sense of unease on the part of the Doctor as he questions his own nature. Capaldi looks more clenched and intense than the last couple Doctors have been. Will he truly be a more introspective Doctor?
Oh, and there are Daleks, and also a T. rex trotting around in front of Parliament. So that’s interesting. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
OK, here we go: real details on what Vince Gilligan is doing with his Breaking Bad spin-off series Better Call Saul. We’ve known some basics, such as that Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks are reprising their Breaking Bad roles of Saul Goodman and Mike Ehrmantraut. And we’ve heard a hell of a lot of rumors, speculation, and “maybe” details from Gilligan, Odenkirk, and other participants. Now during a TCA press tour, Gilligan and AMC have offered up two new photos (that’s one above), a cast list, and new Better Call Saul plot details.
Now we know that the show is generally set six years before the events of Breaking Bad, before Saul was even called Saul. All the details are below. Read More »
Could it be career rehab time for Gerard Depardieu? Abel Ferrara, who made audiences see Harvey Keitel in a harsh new light when he made the original Bad Lieutenant, has cast Depardieu as a vague analogue of embattled IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Ferrara scripted with Christ Zois, and Jacqueline Bisset co-stars. While it’s difficult to pull too much story out of this Welcome to New York trailer, the edit is definitely not safe for work as it is a parade of partying, partial nudity, and shadowy dealings. Watch after the jump. Read More »
