Another promo poster/image I came across at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival marketplace is for the Adrien Brody thriller Wrecked. The film tells the story of a man “who returns to consciousness after his car crashes into a ravine, with no idea who he is or how he got there” and “must overcome incredible odds to survive.” The film is helmed by first feature from American Fim Institute-graduate and Montreal-born director Michael Greenspan More details, official plot synopsis, photo and poster, after the jump.

Casting Notes: Adrien Brody in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris; Zoe Saldana in Colombiana; Christopher Walken in Wild Oats
Posted on Monday, May 17th, 2010 by Russ Fischer
Adrien Brody has joined the cast of Midnight in Paris, the upcoming Woody Allen movie with a title that now, sadly, sounds far too much like a sex tape. As is so often the case with Allen, the cast is becoming quite impressive: it already featured Marion Cotillard, Kathy Bates, Rachel McAdams, Owen Wilson, Michael Sheen and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.
Allen recently said “the film celebrates a young man’s great love for Paris, and simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better.” Brody’s role is said to be ‘flashy.’ [THR]
After the break, Zoe Saldana kills people, and Christopher Walken gets some Wild Oats. Read More »

Now there is a second trailer that shows a little more of the story and amps up the tension as Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody create a new life form. Read More »
Kurt Russell, Sharon Stone and Adrien Brody Star to Recreate 1993 Siege on David Koresh’s Waco Compound
Posted on Tuesday, April 20th, 2010 by Russ Fischer
If we hadn’t just had word of the possible Benicio Del Toro / Cameron Diaz romantic comedy pairing, the cast currently attached to star in Rupert Wainwright‘s film Waco might seem like one of the strangest casting collections of the day: Kurt Russell, Adrien Brody and Sharon Stone are potentially teaming to recreate the ATF raid on the Branch Davidian compound outside Waco that was led by David Koresh. The siege and actions that led to it cost the lives of 82 residents of the compound and 4 federal agents. Read More »
One of our most anticipated films of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival was the stoner comedy High School. I attended a midnight screening of the film, and the crowd was hysterical with laughter. That said, I thought the premise was much more clever than the actual film. What’s the premise? Here is the official description from Sundance:
“Michael Chiklis plays a smarmy high school principal who suddenly institutes a zero-tolerance crusade, introducing mandatory drug tests for all students. Failure of which will result in immediate expulsion. Matt Bush plays a straight-arrow valedictorian named Henry Burke who normally would have nothing to worry about, except he just tried marijuana for the very first time. I’ll let the Sundance description take over: “With his college scholarship hanging in the balance, Burke begrudgingly teams up with charismatic pothead Travis Breaux to do the only thing they can think of to neutralize this threat—get the entire student body stoned.”
Twitch has discovered a trailer for the film online, which we’ve embedded after the jump. Watch it now and leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Vincenzo Natali‘s Splice, starring Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody as researchers who create a not quite human life form, has seemed like an exiciting prospect from the get-go. The film did well at Sundance, garnering good reviews and an appreciative, if appropriately befuddled reaction from our own David Chen.
Joel Silver, Dark Castle and Warner Bros. quickly made a move to buy the film, and shortly thereafter set a summer release date that surprised a lot of us. This looks like a crazy, dark, Cronenbergian genre film, and to have it bow in the summer? That’s confidence.
Now there’s a trailer for the film that shows the main setup of the story. Check it out after the break. Read More »
