One of the new offerings from AMC in 2014 will be Turn, billed as “the story of America’s first spy ring,” set at a point when there was just barely an America. Rupert Wyatt (The Escapist, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) directs the pilot, with Jamie Bell playing a New York farmer who forms the Culper Ring in 1778. The group of childhood friends becomes the nascent country’s first real spy organization, and aims to upend lingering British presence as the Revolutionary War goes on.

Last week, producer Peter Aalbaek Jensen revealed that the cut of Nymphomaniac that’d make it to Danish theaters wouldn’t be the one Lars von Trier wanted to make. His director’s cut was a butt-numbing 5 1/2 hours long, prompting distributors to whittle it down to a more marketable four hours.
However, Jensen now adds that the longer version could find a release after all, if von Trier really wants it to. It’ll just have to go through alternate routes. Hit the jump to read his explanation, and to check out two more steamy posters.

All you have to say is “Lars von Trier sex movie” to get someone interested in Nymphomaniac. The controversial director has told many visceral and beautiful stories over his career, often with a great sexual frankness, that the idea of him making full movie about sexuality just screams “potential.”
Speaking of screaming, fourteen character posters for the film have just been released that are sure to make even more people excited about the film. They show the film’s stars — actors as Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Stellan Skarsgård, Christian Slater, and Charlotte Gainsbourg – in their most intimate moments. I believe on The League they call it “Vinegar Strokes,” the moment right before, and during orgasm. Check out these provocative posters below. Read More »

We Americans are still waiting on a release date for Snowpiercer, Bong Joon-ho‘s English-language debut, but those in his native South Korea will get to see it next week. As part of that final marketing push, one final Korean trailer has dropped for the sci-fi film.
The film features a pretty fantastic ensemble, including John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko Asung, but it’s Chris Evans who plays the hero, and it’s Chris Evans who’s at the center of this latest spot. Check it out after the jump.

South Korean director Bong Joon-ho (Mother, The Host) makes his English-language debut with Snowpiercer, a sci-fi tale which features Chris Evans, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song and Ko Asung.
The film adapts the graphic novel Le Transperceneige, in which humanity triggers a new ice age, and takes refuge in a train that perpetually circles the globe. Class divisions fester on the craft, and revolution eventually brews as the underclass revolts. That’s more or less where the movie’s story kicks in, and this first international trailer for the film.gives a bit of plot background before devoting a lot of time to the revolutionary violence.
Update: The first embed we had for this trailer was pretty grainy. Now we’ve got a much better version of the same trailer, which you can see below.

We’ve still got a few years to go before Danny Boyle gets around to that Trainspotting sequel, but in the meantime Jon S. Baird‘s Filth should tide us over nicely.
Also adapted from an Irvine Welsh novel, the dark comedy stars James McAvoy as bad cop Bruce Robertson. And I mean bad: Bruce is corrupt, violent, drug-addicted, and just plain mean. He’ll happily stomp all over his own colleagues on his way to the top. Ultimately, though, he becomes his own biggest threat when his sanity starts to slip. Jamie Bell, Eddie Marsan, Imogen Poots, and Jim Broadbent also star. Watch the NSFW trailer after the jump.

Lars von Trier may have been banned (or “banned”) from Cannes two years ago for statements made while promoting Melancholia, but that hasn’t stopped him from having a presence at the fest this year. His new film(s), the two-part Nymphomaniac, weren’t finished in time for the fest, but the release of a new image (above) and a press release are keeping Trier in the global cinema conversation as Cannes kicks off this year.
Click the pic above for a larger version and you’ll be able to see actors such as Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Udo Kier, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth, Stellan Skarsgård, Christian Slater, and star Charlotte Gainsbourg, as well as the director. And hit the jump for a press release from Trier’s producer, announcing a Christmas Day opening in Denmark. Magnolia has the film in the US, and hasn’t announced a release date yet. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The Host and Mother director Bong Joon-ho makes his English-language debut with Snowpiercer, which adapts a French graphic novel about a train that carries the remnants of humanity through a snowy landscape. We’ve seen quite a few posters and images that show off the impressive cast but until now we haven’t seen any footage. (That cast includes Chris Evans, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song and Ko Asung.)
The new one-minute featurette below doesn’t feature any English dialogue, but does show off some behind the scenes shots, and a bit of actual footage from the film. It’s all stitched together with an interview with the director, but since that is conducted in his native language most North American viewers will just have to take in the images for now. Read More »
