The future! We love movies about the future, in part because they give creators the chance to really play with convention and visual design. So we’ve got set pics from four films set in the near to distant future, thanks to the wave of sci-fi films that is hitting theaters and producers’ offices in the wake of successful superhero pictures.
After the break:
- Check out the rather colorful street set of Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem,
- RoboCop engages in a little offensive driving,
- Gaze in wonder at Tom Cruise in fairly mundane military dress for All You Need is Kill,
- Finally, see Jennifer Lawrence and other Hunger Games combatants in their new battle gear.

Winter’s Bone let everyone know that Jennifer Lawrence was one of the brightest new acting talents around, but it was the stepping stone of X-Men: First Class and, more crucially, The Hunger Games that made her a star. But she isn’t sticking exclusively to big-budget mainstream films. Lawrence seems to be balancing roles between those tentpole franchises and smaller pictures. Her latest attachment is to a true-life romance called Ends of the Earth, which The Weinstein Company has nearly picked up.
Chris Terrio, who adapted Argo for director Ben Affleck, is also adapting a true story for this film. The source is the history of Ernest and Lydie Marland, an oil baron and his adopted daughter, whose familiar relationship turned into a romantic one as Lydie grew older. Read More »
