Update: A leak of the full trailer, in measurably better quality, is now available. Since it doesn’t seem to be the official release, we’ve just added it to this post and bumped. Look out for the official release, hopefully with HD, very soon.
Last night E! showed part of the first trailer for Tarsem Singh‘s Immortals, and a bootleg video of the segment is online. The footage seems to make up most of the film’s teaser trailer, and shows off a lot of post-300 action, filtered through Tarsem’s recognizable style, and shows off most of the core cast that includes Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Isabel Lucas, Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, John Hurt and Mickey Rourke. Check it out after the break. Read More »

There are five new character posters for Tarsem‘s Immortals, which tells a very Clash of the Titans-style story. These images dramatically play up the sort of imagery that became the accepted mainstream way of envisioning burly ancient warriors thanks to 300, but if you look at the actual stills for the film you’ll see the style is a lot more restrained. Tarsem’s strength has always been his visual sense — even when he was egregiously borrowing from other artists, so I’m hoping these posters are merely a ploy to capture the attention of an audience the studio thinks is attuned to 300.

Good news for fans of director Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor, Game of Thrones), as his new film Win Win will open on March 18 instead of March 25. The film stars Paul Giamatti as “Mike Flaherty, a senior-care attorney and high-school wrestling coach in small-town New Jersey, he compromises his ethics to better support his family — with consequences, of course.” Amy Ryan, Burt Young (Rocky) and newcomer Alex Shaffer also appear.

After the break, a new date for Lone Scherfig’s One Day, as well as the release date and some recap info on Tarsem Singh’s Immortals. Read More »
As MGM has come out of bankruptcy and inched closer to being a real working studio once more, we’ve heard a lot about the potential for The Hobbit and a new James Bond film. We haven’t heard much at all, however, about the completed remake of Red Dawn, which has been sitting on the shelf for six months. So enjoy this cast photo (which is likely a costume test, and definitely not a still frame) showing the new Wolverines, among whom is Chris Hemsworth (Thor).

Entertainment Weekly has revealed four new members of the cast of the 2010 Dan Bradley‘s remake of Red Dawn. MGM is producing the redo of the 1984 John Milius action war drama about a bunch of Colorado high school students who must run for cover then Soviet and Cuban troops invade their school. The students decide to wage their own guerrilla warfare against the invaders under the banner of their football team, The Wolverines.
- Josh Hutcherson (Journey to the Center of the Earth) will play the role of Robert, originated by C. Thomas Howell, the Wolverine’s tech geek and communications specialist who transforms into a warrior along the way.
- Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) will play Erica, a role originated by Lea Thompson, the Wolverines’ head cheerleader and Matt’s girlfriend who becomes incarcerated in an internment camp after the invasion.
- Edwin Hodge (Mental) will play Danny, a role originated by Brad Savage, no longer the young kid but the cool kid in school, the Wolverines’ wide receiver, and Matt’s best friend.
- Connor Cruise (son of Tom Cruise, appeared in Seven Pounds) as Daryl, a role originated by Darrne Dalton — The mayor’s son, the youngest Wolverine, and Robert’s best friend
The cast also includes previously announced cast members Josh Peck, Adrianne Palicki, Chris Hemsworth. More details after the jump.

It has been a few days since our last Transformers 2 Update. On Wednesday, filming continued at Laurel Hill Cemetery, where both Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and that Chevy Beat concept car (not pictured) were spotted in alt mode. [tflive]
The crew has been busy shooting scenes at UPENN, which will double as Sam Witwicky’s (Shia LaBeouf) college. Kendall Whitehouse has more photos of them setting up on Flickr. Kevin Dunn, who plays Sam Witwicky’s father Ron was spotted by fadedsilverscreen with a visitor sticker on his chest. This is the first confirmation that he is featured in the sequel. Julie White who played Sam’s mother Judy Witwicky in the original film, was no where in sight.
A banner outside University of Pennsylvania’s fraternity Psi Upsilon (known as “The Castle”) advertises a frat party, which was filmed later that night.
One extra describes a scene that was shot to TFLive:
“Shia was sitting on a old wooden chair when this girl in a green short dress (who I thought was an extra) was dancing in front of him and kept leaning into him. That’s it for the scene I was in but there is a lot more to it.”
The girl in the green dress is actually Isabel Lucas, who is playing Sam’s college friend (or maybe more?) named Alice.
A sequence involving Bumblebee racing down the street doing peel outs and 180′s was also filmed on 32nd and Chestnut. Jszack caught some of it on camera.
Later that night they filmed a scene where Isabel Lucas storms away from Bumblebee (in alt mode) after saying something to Sam through the passenger’s side window, leaving Shia LaBoeuf to talk to (or possibly yell at?) the car. Not exactly sure how this fits into the scene, but they were squirting this glowing green goo on Lucas. Thanks to zacklur for the photos. And yes, that is Michael Bay directing Shia and Isabel in the photo below.
