Joe Wright‘s Peter Pan origin story Pan has a few very recognizable cast members. Hugh Jackman will play Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund will be Hook, and Rooney Mara is in talks to play Tiger Lily. But for Peter, Wright and his producers are looking at younger, new talent. And so Levi Miller, whose most recognizable role at this point is probably an appearance on Terra Nova, has been chosen as the new young Peter. Read More »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we rethink our decision to become terrorists on the open sea, open a recording studio in Wisconsin, get weirded out by a breathing disorder, derive some pleasure in the killing some woodland fauna with modern weaponry, watch a relationship completely implode on itself, and wonder how to be better friends with alcoholics.

Briefly: Remember Louie? FX comedy, critically acclaimed, last seen in the fall of 2012? Well, it’s finally coming back. FX announced today that it has set the Louie Season 4 premiere date for 10 PM on Monday, May 5. And to reward Louis C.K.‘s patient fans, the network is even throwing in an extra episode. Season 4 will run 14 episodes long instead of the usual 13, with two episodes airing per week through June 16.
By the time Louie returns, it’ll have been off the air for about 19 months. At the time that the hiatus was announced, C.K. told press that he needed “a little breathing room” so that the show could “keep getting better.” In a statement, FX CEO John Landgraf enthused that C.K. had done just that.
“Louis said he needed extra time between seasons three and four of his show because – even though Louie was the most critically acclaimed television comedy series in America – he needed to make it even better,” he said. “Based on the first three episodes we’ve seen, remarkably, he accomplished his goal.” [TheWrap]

Earlier this year Amazon posted a new round of ten pilots, offering viewers the chance to check them all out before voting on ones they liked best. Five of the pilots were aimed at kids, with the other five geared towards adults. Now four of the five “adult” shows have been ordered to series. Two are particularly notable: the new Chris Carter show The After, and Transparent, in which Jeffrey Tambor plays a father who reveals a truth about his own life, and in so doing really changes the family dynamic.
Also getting orders are Bosch, and Mozart in the Jungle. Details on each is below. Read More »

The case of the West Memphis Three has been thoroughly documented in no less than four non-fiction films. But here’s The Devil’s Knot trailer, which represents the effort of Canadian director Atom Egoyan (Chloe, The Sweet Hereafter) to dramatize the story. Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth star in this telling, which begins with the perspective of the parents of the children who were killed in Arkansas in 1993. Eventually, however, we see some of the perspective of the three young men who were wrongly accused of committing the crimes. Read More »
Between The Station Agent, The Visitor, and Win Win, we’ve developed a pretty good idea of what to expect from Tom McCarthy: low-key indies with touches of humor and pathos. But he’s shaking things up a bit with his upcoming The Cobbler by throwing fantasy and Adam Sandler into the mix. And now his next project after that could be an even bigger departure.
McCarthy has signed on to write and possibly direct the Tommysaurus Rex movie, based on an Image Comics book about a boy and his dinosaur pal. Get more details after the jump.
