Brawl in Cell Block 99 trailer

Vince Vaughn looks like a force to be reckoned with and just an absolute beast in Brawl in Cell Block 99. Vaughn is a big guy with a towering presence, so he looks more than suitable to play the role of a former boxer trying to survive prison in writer and director S. Craig Zahler‘s (Bone Tomahawk) new crime film. Zahler might be showing a whole new side of Vaughn, whose performance looks incredibly promising.

Below, watch the Brawl in Cell Block 99 trailer.

Alex of Venice trailer

A family quietly disintegrates when a stay at home dad (Chris Messina, who also directs) decides to take a break, leaving his workaholic wife (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) to keep her son’s development on track, and deal with her father (Don Johnson) as she tries to move forward with her own personal life. Winstead and Johnson won raves for their work when the film premiered at Tribeca last year, and Alex of Venice does look like it has something all its own, based on this footage. Derek Luke, Katie Nehra, and Skylar Gaertner co-star in the film; watch the Alex of Venice trailer here.

From Dusk Till Dawn

Robert Rodriguez is a prime partner in the new El Rey Network, which is the new “genre-busting cable network” aimed at the Latino audience, and we’ve known that one of the cornerstones of the El Rey programming would be a new From Dusk Till Dawn series. Rodriguez isn’t just producing the series, either; as it goes into production in Austin, TX, the announcement has come that he’s directing the first two hour-long episodes.

The show will remake and expand the movie in ten episodes, with D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Seth Gecko, Zane Holtz (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) as Richie Gecko, Jesse Garcia (Sons of Anarchy) as new character Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez, and Don Johnson (Django Unchained, Miami Vice) as Sheriff Earl McGraw.

Today may be Halloween but I’m already looking ahead to Christmas. The family gatherings, the joy of giving, the religious celebration… it’s all important. But this year, there’s also Tarantino. Quentin Tarantino‘s latest film, Django Unchained, opens on December 25 and brings with it the kind of excitement generated by a filmmaker whose previous releases have been almost universally stellar. Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds and now the story of a slave (Jamie Foxx) trained by a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) to kill some evil brothers (including Leonardo DiCaprio) to save the slave’s wife (Kerry Washington).

Tarantino recently revealed, like is the case with many of his films, Django is going to have ties to his previous movie and that makes this new batch of images even more interesting. Besides new shots of several of the stars, we meet secondary characters played by Don Johnson and Walton Goggins. Most of the Tarantino movie connections are tangential so it’s possible these guys are more important than they seem. And if they’re not, it’s still a new look at the latest Tarantino film. Check out all the images after the jump. Read More »

The latest actor to flirt with Quentin Tarantino and his new anti-slavery ‘Southern,’ Django Unchained, is Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Aaron Eckhart has landed the lead role in Randy Miller‘s The Drummer, a biopic of Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson. The indie picture follows the last six years of Wilson’s life, leading up to his death in 1983 at the age of 39.
