A Cure for Wellness

Gore Verbinski‘s career has taken him all over the place, from romcom to horror to animation to big-budget blockbuster, and next year’s A Cure for Wellness sees him delving into psychological thriller. Dane DeHaan stars as an ambitious young exec who’s assigned to bring back the company CEO from a hydrotherapy spa in the Swiss Alps. At first, the place looks like a peaceful retreat, but when he gets stuck there himself, he realizes there’s much more to it than meets the eye.

At a press event earlier this month, 20th Century Fox treated us to the first 35 minutes or so of the movie, which looks intriguingly bizarre. Find out what we witnessed after the jump.

A Cure for Wellness

Gore Verbinski‘s The Ring is still one of the creepiest experiences I’ve ever had in a theater, so I couldn’t be more thrilled to see that, after several years of directing big-budget blockbusters, he’s back to trying to scare the hell out of us with A Cure for WellnessDane DeHaan stars as an ambitious young executive who’s sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from a hydrotherapy spa in the Swiss Alps. Once he arrives, though, it becomes clear the idyllic retreat isn’t exactly what it appears.

Director Gore Verbinski is coming off the biggest bomb of his career. Verbinski last directed The Lone Ranger, a movie which might’ve lost Disney $150 million. The western was greeted with a mostly negative response from audiences and critics, although it has some fans, especially when it comes to the film’s intricate, often dazzling third act set piece. For his follow-up to the Disney flop, The Ring director returns with A Cure for Wellness. Verbinski’s upcoming film stars Dane DeHaan (Life), Jason Isaacs (Green Zone), and Mia Goth (Nymphomaniac).

Agent Kallus Star Wars Rebels

The animated series Star Wars Rebels premieres on the Disney Channel tonight (at 9 ET/PT) and will then bounce to Mondays on Disney XD, beginning October 13.  The show is set in the period between episodes three and four — so between Revenge of the Sith and the original Star Wars — and features some original trilogy vibe as it tracks the rise of the Rebellion.

It sounds like we’ll see (or at least hear) the return of Darth Vader in the show — something that has been hinted at and rumored for months. And it seems as if James Earl Jones will be back to voice him. Below, check out that info, along with all these Rebels bits.

  • The official Star Wars site has an interview with producer Simon Kinberg.
  • Dave Filoni and Joel Aron talk about lightsabers in Rebels.
  • See a Rebels clip featuring Sabine Wren and Hera Syndulla and some creatures.

UPDATE: This article was written on June 18 but has now been confirmed by Entertainment Weekly. Update below with new video.

As fans speculate about the villains in Star Wars Episode VII, we know at least one bad guy created in this post-George Lucas universe. His name is The Inquisitor and he’s a lean, mean, lightsaber-swinging, Jedi-killing machine. In the Disney XD show Star Wars Rebels, set between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, he’s tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi.

The Inquisitor was the first character introduced from Rebels; since then, we’ve met the entire remaining cast and their human counterparts. During all that, we have yet to find out who will be voicing the Inquisitor. Now, a rumor has surfaced that Jason Isaacs, of Harry Potter and The Patriot fame, will be voicing the character.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

If you liked what you saw when NBC posted the first seven minutes of the first episode of Awake earlier this week, you can now watch the other thirty-six. The network has released the entire pilot online for free, weeks in advance of its March premiere date.

Created by Kyle Killen (of the critically adored but amazingly short-lived Lone Star), the drama stars Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy from the Harry Potter series) as a police detective who survives a devastating car accident to find that his life has been split into two realities. In one, his wife (Laura Allen, Terriers) survived the crash while his son (Dylan Minnette, Lost) perished; in the other, the reverse is true. Wilmer Valderrama, Steve Harris, Cherry Jones, B.D. Wong, and Michaela McManus also star. Watch the full-length episode after the jump.
