project almanac trailer

We’ve been talking about Dean Israelite‘s Project Almanac for what seems like forever. Jumping back in time, the idea first got picked up by Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes in 2012. Cameras then started rolling Summer 2013 aimed at a February 2014 release date. In that time, the title changed to Welcome to Yesterday. However the distributor, Paramount, decided to hold the film back once that date got close. It was retitled Project Almanac and it had a pretty successful, buzzy screening at Comic-Con.

Which brings us to the present. A second first trailer for Project Almanac has been released with the film set to hit theaters January 30. In it you’ll see what a group of teenagers might do if they found out how to time travel in their garage. Watch the Project Almanac Trailer below. Read More »

Earlier today, we saw Jonny Weston pushing his girlfried into porn in the About Cherry trailer, but in the first trailer for Chasing Mavericks it’s Weston who’s the wide-eyed ingenue. Weston stars as real-life surfer Jay Moriarity, whose passion for the sport drives him to try and conquer the legendarily dangerous waves at Mavericks in Northern California.

He seeks guidance from local legend Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler), who’s initially resistant but — as it always goes in these stories — eventually relents he sees something of himself in the kid. Abigail Spencer, Elisabeth Shue, and Leven Rambin also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

The mantra that “sex sells” remains as true now as it ever did, but sometimes what sex is selling turns out not to be all that interesting. That appears to be the case with About Cherry, Stephen Elliott‘s flat-looking indie about a gorgeous 18-year-old who falls into the porn industry.

Ashley Hinshaw stars as said protagonist, who’s eager to escape a sad home life with an alcoholic mom (Lili Taylor) and an abusive stepdad (Stephen Wiig). She sees a way out when a rocker boyfriend (Jonny Weston) lures her into light porn, and before long she’s pursuing a more serious career under the guidance of star-turned-director Margaret (Heather Graham). Dev Patel and James Franco also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Joel Schumacher has confirmed in an interview that Halle Berry is in talks to take the lead in the tentatively titled The Hive, about “a female emergency line operator who, in trying to help a young girl, comes up against a killer from her own past.” While nothing is official at this point, the director said, he and Berry are both interested in working together and the producers of The Hive seem to be on board with hiring her.

The thriller is expected to begin shooting in February, though Schumacher has said that he may shoot another, smaller film before that. Berry will next appear in Garry Marshall’s limp-looking ensemble romcom New Year’s Eve, and is currently shooting Cloud Atlas with directors Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski, and Lana Wachowski. [Coming Soon]

After the jump, surfing biopic Mavericks gets a new title and two new stars, and 50 Cent lines up yet another acting gig.

Don Coscarelli is back! The director of the Phantasm films and Bubba Ho-Tep may not be the most technically proficient filmmaker around, but he makes films that have an undeniable appeal. I can’t imagine how anyone who likes strange films and genre stuff wouldn’t love Coscarelli’s movies — they create their own space outside the typical horror/fantasy sphere.

And now he’s back with John Dies at the End. I’ve avoided a lot of material about this movie, and prior to watching this trailer knew only that the film features Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown and a story about a new drug and subjective reality.

After watching the teaser trailer I don’t know much more than that, but I do know that I’m very excited to see the film, which appears to be characterized by a really bizarre story and some spectacularly gooey, very practical creature effects. Check out the footage below. Read More »

Michael K. Williams may have missed out on the lead role of Django Unchained, but it seems there may still be room for him to appear in a different capacity. In an interview with Shadow & Act (via The Playlist), the The Wire actor confirmed that he had just barely lost the lead role to Jamie Foxx, but that director Quentin Tarantino (or “QT, as I call him”) liked Williams enough to consider creating a new role just for him. “It’s not official yet but there’s a lot of talk that there may be a role coming back ’round my way,’” he told the site. “His people and my people have been in discussions in regards to a role that he is creating for me.”

The Playlist points out that the only major black role still uncast is that of Bartholemew, but that the hulking, silent bodyguard probably wouldn’t be an ideal fit for Williams. However, it’s possible that the character could be rewritten to better suit Williams, or that Tarantino will add a new character altogether.

After the jump, new gigs for Charlize Theron, Paula Patton, and Leven Rambin.
