20th Century Fox has also sent us a batch of 8 high resolution concept art from Rupert Wyatt‘s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. While the trailer, released this morning, featured some quick glimpses at WETA’s awesome visual effects work, the final sequences of the movie are far from rendered. But if you want to see some concept art of the Apes rising against the humans, hit the jump.

Last time we saw anything from the film Ironclad, in which Paul Giamatti plays King John as the monarch attempts to violently preserve his power after the signing of the Magna Carta, we were looking at a hastily-assembled ‘trailer’ culled from the first couple weeks of shooting.
Now there is a full UK trailer for the film, which shows Paul Giamatti, Brian Cox and James Purefoy all in their best, angriest moments.

I have just heard that Bob Weinstein and Dimension Films have acquired Kristoffer Aaron Morgan‘s H.P. Lovecraftian horror film The Home. I’m happy to hear that Dimension Films wants to release an original movie again. The Home seems like a film they would have invested in back in the mid-1990’s. It seems like now-a-days, they’re concentrating mostly on sequels, remakes and un-funny parody movies. No word on if Dimension will be releasing the film theatrically or just home video. I’m sure, at very least, The Home will have a film festival run.

I know there’s resistance to Red based on the fact that the film looks quite a bit different from the Warren Ellis comics upon which it is based. I haven’t read the comic, so can only approach the film based on what I see — and I really enjoy the stuff we’ve been shown so far. There’s one trailer already, and a second premiered today in conjunction with the film’s appearance at the San Diego Comic Con. Read More »

Eventually, AMC will release something for The Walking Dead that I think doesn’t look great, but it hasn’t happened yet. There’s a good piece of art to promote the show’s debut at Comic Con, which you can see in part above, from IGN.

Brian Cox will reunite with The Escapist helmer Rupert Wyatt in 20th Century Fox’s Planet of the Apes prequel Rise of the Apes. The Wrap reports that Cox will play “the villainous owner of a primate sanctuary who runs the facility without compassion for the animals that live there.”

This isn’t a gag: Pierce Brosnan and his son Sean Brosnan are teaming up to co-star in a film called Bonded, which will see them in an “Oliver Twist-esque” thriller based on a story that took place in California in the early ’90s.
Mo Ramchandani directs and wrote the script about “a Mexican teenager called Jesus who, after the death of his mother, is sold by his father and smuggled into America, where he’s forced to work as a bonded slave labourer in a Los Angeles sweatshop.” There he befriends a young woman who is soon sold into sexual slavery, leading Jesus to attempt to rescue her. Both Brosnans will play cops. [The Wrap]
After the break, new roles for Toby Kebbell, Lukas Haas and Walton Goggins. Read More »
I would never have guessed that the director of Flightplan and The Time Traveler’s Wife might turn out the most entertaining-looking under the radar comic book adaptation of this summer. But I grinned all the way through the trailer for Robert Schwentke‘s Red, which adapts Warren Ellis‘ graphic novel about a group of retired CIA agents. Check it out after the break. Read More »
