‘Dom Hemingway’ Trailer: Rude, Crude Jude (Law)

Dom Hemingway

After a string of strong supporting roles, Jude Law returns to the spotlight in Dom Hemingway. And what a noisy, colorful return it may be.

The gangster pic stars Law as a safecracker who’s just spent twelve years in prison for keeping his mouth shut. Once out, he reconnects with his old life by trying to collect his due from his boss (Demián Bichir) and make up with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke). Richard E. Grant plays Dom’s best friend, who’s along for the ride.

The first trailer has just hit, and you can check it out after the jump. Be warned that it’s NSFW, unless your own boss doesn’t mind seeing Law’s bare bottom on your computer screen.

Bradley Cooper

The all-star lineup for Jane Got a Gun is changing again, hopefully for the last time. Bradley Cooper has just joined the Gavin O’Connor-directed Western in the villain role vacated last month by Jude Law — who was himself a replacement for Joel Edgerton, who switched characters when Michael Fassbender departed.

The troubled Western has seen some serious shakeups over the past few weeks, most famously when original director Lynne Ramsay quit by simply not showing up on the first day of production. O’Connor was quickly brought in to take her place. The one major player who’s remained steadily in place throughout is Natalie Portman, who plays the title character and also serves as a producer. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Jude Law

Jane Got a Gun just can’t catch a break. Yesterday, the indie Western suddenly found itself without a director when Lynne Ramsay failed to show up for the first day of shooting. The project quickly bounced back this morning by hiring Gavin O’Connor to take her place, but now it’s being derailed again as it’s lost one of its stars. Jude Law has abruptly departed the project, just one week after he initially boarded. Hit the jump to read more.

On Monday, Lynne Ramsay was set to begin shooting the western Jane Got a Gun, with Natalie Portman (who is also producing) as a woman who, with a former lover, defends her homestead and spouse against bandits that wounded her husband. Joel Edgerton and Jude Law are also in the cast, with Law replacing Michael Fassbender.

But when day broke on Monday and the cast and crew were in place, Ramsay was nowhere to be found. For reasons unknown to the public, Ramsay didn’t show up, and was effectively fired (or quit) as a result.

Producer/financier Scott Steindorff said yesterday that he and the cast and crew were committed to the film and that a new director would be hired. Now, Warrior director Gavin O’Connor is in talks to make the film, and will reportedly begin directing on Thursday.

Update: Jude Law has now exited the production. Details here.

With just weeks to go until shooting, Lynne Ramsay‘s Jane Got a Gun has just been hit with some very good news and some very bad news.

Michael Fassbender has just dropped out of the hero role in the Western, leaving Joel Edgerton to take over the spot. But as Edgerton was originally slated to play the villain, that opens up an opportunity for Jude Law to step into his old role. Star Natalie Portman, meanwhile, remains firmly attached to the lead role through this round of casting musical chairs. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Wes Anderson is shooting his new film, Grand Budapest Hotel, right now, with Ralph Fiennes and Saoirse Ronan in the lead roles. Fiennes plays the concierge of the titular hotel, and the cast also includes Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, and Mathieu Amalric.

Some set pics and videos hit the web last night, showing that the hotel of the title is grand, indeed, as are some of the costumes worn by the cast. Jeff Goldblum’s facial hair is no small matter, either. Check them all out below.

Update: At the request of Fox, we’ve pulled the images.

There’s no better place than the Oscars to see all your favorite movie stars assembled in one place, but the trailer for Jimmy Kimmel‘s Movie: The Movie V2 might be a close second.

In his post-Oscars show last year, Kimmel debuted an epic, star-studded 9-minute trailer poking fun at every obnoxious movie trope under the sun. This year, he’s back with an even more epic, even more star-studded trailer for Movie: The Movie V2. Because as Kimmel quips, “When you have a big success in Hollywood, there’s only one reasonable thing you can do, and that is cheapen it with a sequel.”

Watch Movie: The Movie V2 after the jump, followed by Kimmel’s other big movie parody, Life of Psy. Yup, that’s exactly what it sounds like.

Steven Soderbergh, so often adventurous over the course of his career, closes out his theatrical run with the relatively conventional thriller Side Effects. Though the ideas within are familiar, a winding narrative path keeps predictability out of sight, and prevents Soderbergh and screenwriter Scott Z. Burns from ever falling back to one simplistic message. Soderbergh’s own skill with the form allows him to pursue that path at length, without losing the plot.

Starting off with pharmacological paranoia, the two take clear inspiration from Rosemary’s Baby, and toy with notions that call back to Hitchcock. But this is no throwback. Soderbergh has crafted a smart but pessimistic film rooted firmly in fears that are becoming more and more common today.

The film is built around a woman (Rooney Mara) who suffers from severe depression and falls into the care of a potentially dodgy psychiatrist. Side Effects traffics in the tone of modern paranoia that defined previous Soderbergh/Burns collaboration Contagion, and revels in the duplicity that was a cornerstone of their first partnership, The Informant!. The three films define something like an informal trilogy in which we are chronically disconnected, dishonest, and perhaps eventually doomed.
