George Clooney‘s The Ides of March, based on the play Farragut North, is gathering steam. It quickly found funding, then was picked up for US distribution by Sony well before a frame of film had even been shot. (Cameras roll, or record to hard disk – whatever – next year.) Now the film has two more cast members to complement George Clooney, Ryan Gosling and Marisa Tomei: Max Minghella and Jeffrey Wright have both signed on. Read More »
Summit Entertainment has released the first movie trailer for Source Code, the sophomore feature from Moon director Duncan Jones. The script had high praise in industry circles and has a clever premise, basically a mystery thriller set in a ten minute span of time Groundhog Day-style. Jake Gyllenhall plays a soldier who is part of an experimental program to ferret out the origin of a terrorist attack on a train. His psyche is projected into the body of a passenger on the train, and he relives the attack multiple times as he tries to trace it back to the point of origin.
Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright are in the cast as well. The Source Code script has had some revisions done by Billy Ray but was originally written by Ben Ripley. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Thanks to the ongoing American Film Market, we’ve got a bit more info about Source Code, the sophomore feature from Moon director Duncan Jones. We should be seeing a trailer within the next couple months, but until then this long, and possibly spoilerish synopsis will have to do. Read More »

This is my favorite news so far today: Clint Mansell will provide the score for Source Code, the second film from director Duncan Jones. Mansell is the composer who has worked on all of Darren Aronofksy’s films, and whose score for Jones’ debut feature Moon was a tremendous contribution to that film’s atmosphere. Read More »
Liosngate has released a couple new production photos from Oliver Stone‘s George W. Bush biopic – W. The photo above shows George W. Bush (Josh Brolin, front) playing with his two dogs, Barney and Spot, on the White House lawn, as Karl Rove (Toby Jones) comes up with evil schemes on his blackberry (we can only assume).
The behind the scenes photo above shows Oliver Stone (standing, center) directing a scene in a facsimile of the White House situation room with (left to right, seated) Condoleezza Rice (Thandie Newton), Donald Rumsfeld (Scott Glenn), George Tenet (Bruce McGill), George W. Bush (Josh Brolin, seated on table), Colin Powell (Jeffrey Wright) and Dick Cheney (Richard Dreyfuss). Click on the images to enlarge. W. hits theaters on October 17th 2008.
Lionsgate has released a final trailer for Oliver Stone’s W, which is basically an extended version of the recent tv spots. I think this is a vast improvement over the teaser trailer, because you get a much better understanding of the comedic/dramtic tone of the film. The juxtaposition of the war images with Bush’s stupidity is pure Stone. I also love how they call George Bush Sr. “Poppy”. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
Official Plot Synopsis: Whether you love him or hate him, there is no question that George W. Bush is one of the most controversial public figures in recent memory. In an unprecedented undertaking, acclaimed director Oliver Stone is bringing the life of our 43rd President to the big screen as only he can. W takes viewers through Bush’s eventful life — his struggles and triumphs, how he found both his wife and his faith, and of course the critical days leading up to Bush’s decision to invade Iraq.
Cast: Josh Brolin, James Cromwell, Ellen Burstyn, Elizabeth Banks, Toby Jones, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Scott Glenn, Ioan Gruffud, Richard Dreyfuss, Jesse Bradford
W. hits theaters on October 17th 2008.
The full length theatrical trailer for Live Free or Die Hard is now online. Am I the only one who still prefers the original (now international) title, Die Hard 4.0?
