Ryan Gosling may get another chance at a modern take on an LA-set crime film (to offset Gangster Squad) thanks to Iron Man 3 director Shane Black. In the wake of last year’s huge Iron Man success, Black has been taking time to get his next film off the ground. While his Doc Savage film continues to simmer at Sony, his next now looks like it could be The Nice Guys. This one is a 1970s noir Black wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi.
Black is trying to get Gosling and Russell Crowe to sign on for the film, which is being produced by Joel Silver. Read More »

Nearly a decade has passed since the last time we dropped in on Sin City, but it doesn’t look like a whole lot has changed since then. Life looks as grim and brutal as ever in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which follows four noirish storylines as they unfold across the city.
Today, we have five new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For character posters to (re)introduce you the town’s gun-toting, knife-wielding residents, including Nancy (Jessica Alba), Marv (Mickey Rourke), Gail (Rosario Dawson), Dwight (Josh Brolin) and Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Check ’em out after the jump.

Denis Villeneuve‘s latest film, Enemy, is not for everybody. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a simple college professor who realizes there’s another man who looks just like him, the film is way more complex than it seems. It’s atmospheric, captivating and wholly engaging. From the first minute, it slowly feeds you fascinating information until a mind-blowing, very odd conclusion. Enemy is one of those movies you can’t wait to discuss after you see it. Then, the more you talk about it, the better it becomes.
Enemy opened in limited release last week and expands today into theaters in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Nashville and many others. To celebrate the expansion of this mind-expanding film, A24 Films has given us two cool, behind the scenes images to premiere. You’ll see Gyllenhaal, Villeneuve and more. Check them out below.

Earlier this week, Paul Thomas Anderson completed production on his seventh film, Inherent Vice. That means the excruciating wait now begins for Anderson to complete the film and get it in front of our eyes.
Based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon, the film follows a pothead detective (Joaquin Phoenix) who gets drawn into a complex crime plot when his ex-girlfriend comes back into his live. The incredibly impressive cast includes, but isn’t limited to, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Jena Malone, Kevin O’Connor and Martin Short.
While we wait for the film’s release, we can begin to imagine what Pynchon via Anderson will look like and a new photo might provide an idea. It’s of a very, very long stretch of dolly track Anderson used to shoot one scene. Read More »
