See Bryan Cranston in ‘Trumbo’

Bryan Cranston Dalton Trumbo

Bryan Cranston is bringing a shameful nexus of entertainment and politics to life once again in the movie Trumbo.

Following the conclusion of Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston has been seen in Godzilla, and his biggest achievement has probably been a portrayal of  Lyndon B. Johnson in the play All the Way. That led to an HBO movie version of the play in which Cranston again plays the title role. But that’s not his only stint playing a significant figure from 20th Century American history. Cranston has also starred in Trumbo, a biopic about blackslited novelist and screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. Below, check out the first picture of Cranston in the film. Read More »

Starry Eyes clip

Starry Eyes is a great independent horror film that follows a young woman who goes further than she ever imagined possible in her quest for fame. Alexandra Essoe turns in a killer performance in the lead role, and we see her character Sarah go through real hell as she abandons all anchors to her past life in the pursuit of her dreams.

We’ve got an exclusive extended Starry Eyes clip, in which Sarah is invited for a meeting with her producer, and finds that she just might be in over her head. One unwelcome aspect to his overture is not entirely unexpected, but there’s a wrinkle that suggests Sarah is facing a weirder situation than most would be prepared for.  Read More »

Goodbye to All That trailer

One indie film that’s mostly flown under the radar is Goodbye to All That, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this past spring. But judging by the first trailer, it may be time to give this one a closer look.

Goodbye to All That is the directorial debut of Angus MacLachlan, screenwriter of the remarkable Junebug. Paul Schneider stars as a newly divorced dad trying to navigate the single life for the first time in years. Okay, so the premise sounds a bit familiar, but the execution looks far above average thanks to MacLachlan’s warm, honest approach and engaging performances all around. Watch the first Goodbye to All That trailer after the jump.

Birdman

We’ve already seen a bunch of trailers for Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman, but as the film continues its expansion across the country the team over at Fox Searchlight are trying something a little different.

The latest Birdman promo isn’t really a Birdman promo per se, but a (fake) trailer for Birdman Returns, the 1992 superhero sequel starring Michael Keaton‘s Riggan Thomson. Watch the Birdman Returns trailer after the jump. Read More »

Michael Shannon as Elvis

Elvis Presley has been portrayed by many actors over the decades since his death in 1977. That doesn’t make the idea of seeing Michael Shannon play the singer any less head-turningly odd. Pair him with Kevin Spacey as Richard M. Nixon and you might have something really… weird. The two actors have been cast in Elvis & Nixon, which is inspired by the unlikely photo op that resulted in the photo above, taken in 1977. Read More »

Luke Evans Free Fire

Ben Wheatley (along with writer/editor Amy Jump) has developed a career as one of the UK’s best up and coming directors. But he’s about to make the transition to shooting a film in the US. His next film Free Fire will be an “action shootout movie” with Luke Evans in the lead role and a healthy influence from Sam Peckinpah and hard-boiled crime movies. Read More »

Man Who Killed Don Quixote casting

Update: O’Connell has now officially been cast in Gilliam’s film. Our original article follows, and is updated with a new synopsis below.

Jack O’Connell may well be the next big guy to watch. After his stint on Skins, he showed up in 300: Rise of an Empire and ’71, and received rave notes for his work in Starred Up. Holding the lead role in Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken means that half the families in the US are going to know his face after that film opens at Christmas. And now he might be the man for Terry GilliamThe Man Who Killed Don Quixote. He would play, according to the most recent draft of the script, a guy who is connected to a Don Quixote movie which has had a fairly undesirable effect on some audiences. Read More »
