Charlize Theron in Prometheus

It seems everyone wants a piece of David Leitch and Chad Stahelski these days. Ever since the success of John Wick, the directing duo has seen their to-do list balloon to include such high-profile projects as Bloodshot and John Wick 2. Now here’s one more to add to the pile: The Coldest City, a spy thriller to star Charlize Theron.

Get all the details on Leitch and Stahelski’s new Charlize Theron Coldest City project after the jump.  Read More »

True Detective season 2 character posters

There’s a set of four new True Detective season 2 character posters, but they almost do more to obscure the quartet of new leads than they do to reveal them. We see the new leads Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, but their eyes are all cropped out of each image. There’s an ominous tagline, “We get the world we deserve,” and with these designs we have to wonder if any of these characters can see that new world coming.

See those posters below, and get some comments from creator/writer/producer Nic Pizzolatto about the new season.  Read More »

In the Tall Grass movie

We’re getting into a new age of Stephen King adaptations. The Stand and It are both being redone for the big screen, from directors Josh Boone and Cary Fukunaga — both very promising projects. And now Vincenzo Natali, who made films like Cube and Splice and is a director on Hannibal, is going to adapt In the Tall Grass, a “road movie” that turns into a nightmare, based on a story King co-authored with his son Joe Hill.

Jon Hamm High Wire Act

No, Jon Hamm isn’t planning some network television stunt to air after the series finale of Mad Men on May 17th. Instead, High Wire Act is the name of a new political action thriller that will be led by the star of Million Dollar Arm and Bridesmaids and, yes, Mad Men. And with a script from Tony Gilroy, the writer behind The Bourne Identity franchise, this should be a project to keep an eye on. So what’s the film about? Details on the plot after the jump. Read More »

The Nightmare trailer

Rodney Ascher made his big-screen debut with the documentary Room 237, which gave voice to crazy fan theories about The Shining, and in the process explored the ways we interact with films and our assumptions about filmmakers. Now Ascher is tackling a subject that is much closer to home for some people: sleep paralysis.

In The Nightmare, Ascher interviews subjects who suffer from sleep paralysis — where one is awake, but completely unable to move, and sometimes beset by hallucinations — and then recreates these very personal visions and terrors. The result is a film Germain called “absolutely horrifying” when it premiered at Sundance.

Legend starring Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy is all over the place this year. There’s so much of him to go around, in fact, that we’re actually getting two of him in one movie. Legend stars Hardy and Hardy again as Reginald and Ronald Kray, real-life twin gangsters who ruled London in the 1960s.

It’s the latest film from writer-director Brian Helgeland, who won an Oscar in 1998 for exploring similarly dark, stylish territory with the script for L.A. Confidential. Watch the first Legend trailer after he jump.  Read More »

Strangerland trailer

Here’s the first trailer for the tense Australian drama Strangerland which premiered at Sundance this year. Nicole Kidman plays a woman whose children disappear, leading her and her husband into a desperate search. Well, this is the first real domestic trailer; we saw another Strangerland trailer late last year that was quickly pulled. This one is better, so it works out for everyone.

Kim Farrant makes her directorial debut with the film, which also stars Joseph Fiennes and Hugo Weaving. Check out the trailer after the jump. Read More »
