Guy Pearce was last seen in Iron Man 3, and Felicity Jones will soon appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But in Drake Doremus‘ Breathe In, they’ll both ditch the superpowered world for a quieter, messier, more grounded one.
In his follow-up to 2011′s festival hit Like Crazy, which also starred Jones, Doremus once again delves into the complicated desires that connect and separate people. Pearce plays music teacher Keith, whose family plays host to British exchange student Sophie (Jones). A talented piano player — not to mention a soulful, striking young woman — she draws Keith’s attention, and a forbidden bond begins to form. Amy Ryan and Mackenzie Davis also star, as Keith’s wife and daughter, respectively. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

Briefly: Even a casual observer knows that women direct far fewer big Hollywood films than men. So it’s interesting to see that the developing adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey — an extended S&M-lite sexual fantasy that has been decried as “mommy porn” as it tops sales charts — will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. She has made only one major feature, Nowhere Boy, from 2009.
We don’t yet know much about plans that Focus is pulling together for the film, but if the movie is even vaguely as successful as the novel series, it’ll be huge. Read More »

After introducing us to a new, rebooted vision of the Spideyverse in last year’s The Amazing Spider-Man, director Marc Webb is planning to expand that mythology in a big way with next year’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Mary Jane Watson (Shailene Woodley), Electro (Jamie Foxx), The Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), and Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper) are among the classic comic characters who’ll be making their first appearances in the sequel, and now it looks like we can add Felicia Hardy a.k.a. Black Cat (Felicity Jones) to that number as well.
Since Jones boarded the cast earlier this year, there’s been no confirmed info on whom she’d be playing. However, the actress herself has seemingly given herself away in a new interview. Watch it after the jump.
