Jackie Earle Haley is a talented actor, and he has the sort of face that leads him to being cast in less than savory roles. His latest gig will see him leading people into bad acts in a new way, however. Haley will direct the indie Criminal Activies, and also take a role in the picture. Read More »

As remakes go, Jose Padilha‘s Robocop seems to be one of the more interesting ones. Not only does it promise a whole new spin on the core concept — by focusing far more closely on the toll that Robocopping takes on Alex Murphy for example — it’s assembled a great cast to help sell that story. Joel Kinnaman is the shining star, but he’s backed by the likes of Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Jackie Earle Haley, Samuel L. Jackson, and Abbie Cornish.
The latest batch of photos highlight some of those talented supporting players, while also showing off how damn cool Kinnaman looks at Robocop. Check ‘em out after the jump.

The latest film about the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy is Parkland, named for the hospital that received Kennedy after he was shot in Dallas. The film is the directorial debut of journalist Peter Landesman, and features a high-profile cast playing the many people who surrounded the President at the time: Ron Livingston and Billy Bob Thronton are secret service agents, Paul Giamatti is Arnold Zapruder, Zac Efron and Marcia Gay Harden are Parkland employees, and Jacki Weaver and James Badge Dale are Lee Harvey Oswald’s immediate family.
The first trailer clearly feels the weight of history, and you can watch it below. Read More »

As one Paul Verhoeven remake plops into theaters, another one is gearing up to start shooting. Fortunately for us, Jose Padilha‘s RoboCop already looks much more promising than Len Wiseman’s Total Recall ever did.
For one thing, Padilha is assembling a top-notch cast. Joel Kinnaman has been set to play the lead for some time now, but in the last few months Padilha’s been busy locking down some other interesting talents like Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, Samuel L. Jackson, and Hugh Laurie. The newest member of that roster is now Jennifer Ehle, a two-time Tony winner last seen in Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion and the CBS drama A Gifted Man. More details after the jump.

José Padilha has rounded up an impressive array of talent for his new Robocop remake, and the latest additions are no exception. A new report has surfaced today indicating that Jackie Earle Haley is now signed on, while Jay Baruchel is said to be circling a key role. The two join a cast that already includes Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Laurie, Abbie Cornish, and of course, Joel Kinnaman as Robocop himself. More details after the jump.

Here at last is the trailer for Dark Shadows, the most recent of many pairings between director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. The actor has wanted to revive the ’60s supernatural soap opera Dark Shadows for years, and he and Burton, after much planning, finally shot the movie last year. One of many questions about the project has been concerned with whether something that has come across like a bit of an obsession for Depp can translate into a movie that people want to see now.
The trailer premiered on Warner Bros.-owned The Ellen Degeneres Show today — appropriate, I suppose, for a film that adapts a soap opera — and we’ve got it below.

Is Warner Bros. mounting the most abstract trailer release ever? We’ve seen so many new photos from Tim Burton‘s Dark Shadows in the past week, it’s like the studio is just releasing the trailer one frame at a time. And it is a little bit weird that we’ve already got a trailer for the stop-motion version of Burton’s Frankenweenie, which opens in October, while we haven’ t yet seen a shred of footage for Dark Shadows, which is a mere two months away, with an opening set for May 11. (Not like the film is wanting an attention-getting cast, with the likes of Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green and Michelle Pfeiffer.)
So break out your zoetrope, print out these stills and assemble your own Dark Shadows trailer. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Here’s a new image from the other Tim Burton movie that will be out in the first half of 2012. While we just saw a trailer for his producing effort Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, this is for the movie he directed after many years of talking about the project: Dark Shadows.
This look at star Johnny Depp will already be familiar to those who have been following along with the development of the film. He plays the centuries-old vampire Barnabas Collins, originally introduced in the ’60s TV soap Dark Shadows. We haven’t seen much of Eva Green, however, other than in the first pre-shoot promo shot that introduced the cast. She plays the witch Angelique Bouchard, a character that has a very specific history with Barnabas Collins.
We can’t give you a much larger look at the pic, but after the break the screenwriter of Dark Shadows offers some clues as to just what sort of film we’re in for.
