The Zookeeper's Wife trailer - Jessica Chastain

Focus Features has unveiled the first trailer for The Zookeeper’s Wife, the based-on-a-true-story World War II drama from Niki Caro (Whale Rider). Jessica Chastain and Johan Heldenbergh star as Antonina Zabinska and Jan Zabinski, who run a zoo in Warsaw. When Poland is invaded by Nazis, the couple heroically work with the Resistance to secretly shelter Jews who’ve escaped from the Warsaw ghetto — right under the nose of the Reich’s chief zoologist, played by Daniel Brühl.

‘God Particle’ is ‘Cloverfield 3’

10 cloverfield lane trailer images

In February, I wrote a post theorizing that the JJ Abrams-produced Julius Onah-directed space station set thriller God Particle might be the third film in a Cloverfield film series. I even asked Abrams this directly, which he slyly responded, “Well, that remains to be seen.” Today my prediction has been confirmed: God Particle is Cloverfield 3.

Daniel Bruhl as Helmut Zemo in Captain America Civil War

In the end, all those rumors about Daniel Brühl playing Helmut Zemo in Captain America: Civil War turned out to be true. However, the version of Zemo we saw onscreen wasn’t much like the one we know from the comics. He had a completely different backstory and a completely different look. Gone were the purple mask and militaristic outfit; instead, we got a normal-looking guy in everyday civilian clothing. Were it not for the fact that Brühl’s character is explicitly identified as “Zemo” in the film, you might not even know they were supposed to be the same character.

But it seems Marvel Studios did at least consider the classic Zemo look at one point. Artist Andy Park has shared an interesting bit of conceptual art that shows what a more traditional Zemo could have looked like in Civil War. Check out the Civil War Zemo concept art below.  Read More »

Daniel Bruhl in Captain America Civil War

Hot off of his villainous turn in Captain America: Civil War, Daniel Brühl is getting ready to launch himself into outer space. He’s the latest star to climb aboard the J.J. Abrams-produced sci-fi thriller God Particle, joining David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, John Krasinski, and Elizabeth Debicki. Julius Onah (The Girl Is in Trouble) is directing for Paramount.

civil war baron zemo

As the very positive reviews for Captain America: Civil War have begun to arrive on the internet, many critics have addressed how well the movie has been sold to audiences. It seems that the important beats, characters, and sequences have been left out of the marketing altogether, preserving more than a few surprises for audiences who buy tickets for the film when it opens in a few weeks. One those characters absent from every trailer, clip, TV spot, and poster is Baron Zemo, the old school Captain America villain who is played by Rush and Inglourious Basterds star Daniel Brühl in the film.

And while we’ll probably have to wait until the film is released to get a look at the character in motion or to hear him speak, the first official look at the character is here and…well, it’s not what you’d expect.

colonia trailer

The current career choices of Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl deserve some consideration. She is an actress known around the globe for playing a lead character in one of the most popular film franchises of all time. He’s the promising young star of Rush and Inglourious Basterds who will soon be paying his superhero dues as a villain in Captain America: Civil War. Both look to be straddling that fine line between being chasing movie stardom and doing good work in smaller films, carefully selecting projects and roles that won’t pigeonhole them or reduce them to a type. These two are increasingly exciting performers because they’re actively pushing themselves in new directions and genres, working under interesting filmmakers.

Colonia finds the two of them sharing the spotlight, playing a young couple who are find themselves trapped in a cult following a violent political revolution. More than anything, the new trailer for the film is a reminder that Watson and Brühl aren’t slacking off with easy material. This looks intense and mean and the kind of thing that you need to help balance out the Harry Potter and the Marvel on your filmography.

Colonia Trailer

Following the first trailer for Hulu’s cult-centric drama series The Path, we’re heading into the compound of another cult with a second trailer for the thriller Colonia starring Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl. Inspired by real events, the film takes us back to Chile in 1973 when a woman named Lena (Watson) sees her boyfriend (Brühl) taken to a stronghold called Colonia Dignidad, and the only way to get him back is to infiltrate the cult herself.

Spider-Man director

It’s long been assumed that Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man would make his debut in Captain America: Civil War — so long, in fact, that you’d be forgiven for thinking it was officially confirmed fact. But until now, it’s really just been a rumor (albeit one based on lots of circumstantial evidence).

So it’s with great relief that we can report once and for all that, yes, Spider-Man will be in Captain America: Civil War. That is, unless Marvel Studios changes its mind and decides to cut him out.

Burnt trailer

Bradley Cooper has already been nominated for an Oscar four times, and The Weinstein Company is probably hoping that he can get another nomination as a struggling chef desperately trying to make a comeback in a big way.

Burnt sees Cooper play Adam Jones, a former star chef who landed two coveted Michelin stars, and as one of the characters in the new Burnt trailer says, you have to be like Luke Skywalker in order to get just one of them. But what if he’s more like the Darth Vader of chefs? Either way, Jones now wants his third Michelin star, and he’s pulling out all the stops to make it happen. Read More »
