James Franco got pretty weird in Spring Breakers earlier this year, but Alien is a big old teddy bear compared to the unhinged meth kingpin he plays in Homefront. He’s so scary, in fact, that Jason Statham may be the only man who can take him down.
The Gary Fleder-directed, Sylvester Stallone-scripted thriller follows a former DEA agent who retires to a quiet rural community to start a new life with his daughter. But the peace is soon disturbed when he discovers the town’s secret, and the town discovers one of his. A new red-band trailer has hit, and you can check it out after the jump.

In most respects, Gary Fleder‘s Homefront sounds like a pretty typical action thriller. Jason Statham stars as a retired DEA agent, who moves to a small, quiet town for the sake of his young daughter. Once there, however, he quickly gets entangled with the local villain, a drug lord played by… James Franco. Wait, what?
It’s an oddball combination for sure, but it’s also an effective one in that it got our attention right away. In addition to those two, Kate Bosworth, Winona Ryder, and Rachelle Lefevre also star. Oh, and Sylvester Stallone wrote the script based on book by Chuck Logan. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Married couple Katie Aselton and Mark Duplass have worked together on a range of projects, including The Puffy Chair and The League, but their latest collaboration looks like a pretty sharp change of pace. Unfortunately for them, different doesn’t always mean better.
Directed by Aselton (The Freebie) from a script by Duplass, Black Rock centers around three women (Aselton, Kate Bosworth, and Lake Bell) on a camping trip on a remote island. They cross paths with a trio of war vets (Will Bouvier, Jay Paulson, and Anslem Richardson) who happily take up the girls’ invitation to join their cozy party. After one sexual encounter takes a very nasty turn, however, the ladies find themselves running for their lives. Watch the trailer after the jump.

The red-band trailer for Peter Farrelly‘s Movie 43 leaned hard on the shock factor of seeing big Hollywood stars revel in foul language and filthy jokes, but the poor green-band trailer is stuck trying to sell the exact same product by only hinting at what the NSFW version could actually show. Is Anna Faris asking Chris Pratt to take a dump on her still comedy gold when the word “poop” has to be substituted with a fart noise? Is Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts bullying their own kid still shocking when they have to keep their behavior G-rated?
Eh, truthfully, I think the answer is that none of this looked all that outrageous to begin with. But at least it’s not any less funny than it was before. Hit the jump to see Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Stephen Merchant, Emma Stone, Kristen Bell, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Duhamel, Terrence Howard, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloë Grace Moretz, Seann William Scott, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Bell, Richard Gere, and so, so, so many more celebs in the new SFW trailer.

For the past several years, Juno Temple has alternated between mainstream projects and indie fare. And though 2012′s shaping up to be her biggest year yet, her basic M.O. is no different. Temple is poised to make her biggest splash yet in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises as Catwoman pal Holly Robinson, but first, she’ll be leading the indie coming-of-age tale Little Birds.
Written and directed by first-time helmer Elgin James, Little Birds revolves around Lily (Temple) and Alison (Kay Panabaker), a pair of teenage best friends stuck in a dreary ghost town on the Salton Sea. When an opportunity arises for the girls to start more exciting lives in Los Angeles, Lily jumps at the chance and Alison tags along for the ride. Before long, however, they find themselves in over their heads as they get increasingly involved in their new friends’ life of petty crime. Leslie Mann, Kate Bosworth, and Kyle Gallner also star. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

Really, you could call any of the past few decades “The Age of Scorsese” — the timelessness of his best work is what makes him such a revered filmmaker, and he’s been working steadily since the ’70s. But every fashion photoshoot needs an inspiration, so for their latest issue, Harper’s Bazaar pulled together a bevy of stars to pay tribute to Martin Scorsese under that “Age of” title. The spread sees Chloe Moretz, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Michael Pitt, Sir Ben Kingsley and several other high-profile actors come together to recreate some of the director’s most iconic scenes. Flip through the photos after the jump.

While he waits for the 24 film to move forward, Kiefer Sutherland is going to romance Kate Bosworth in New York. A film called Fairytale of New York (which only conjures up memories of the Pogues song) has been written by Jeff Murphy and will follow an Irish standup comic who meets an American woman in a NYC art gallery while on a working tour of the States. I can’t get too bent out of shape about another romcom, but I’ll be pretty curious to hear Kiefer Sutherland’s accent. He was born and spent his early life in the UK, but I’m so accustomed to his distinctive voice that the idea of him sporting an accent seems unusual. [THR]
After the break, Seth Rogen gets company in My Mother’s Curse, and Bridesmaids standout Melissa McCarthy is the focus of two new projects. Read More »
I’m going to have to hold my thoughts on this footage for Rod Lurie‘s remake of the landmark Sam Peckinpah film Straw Dogs, because after watching the trailer a couple times I’m still second-guessing what the intentions are.
What I can see is that this trailer is selling a very straight-up thriller, in which James Marsden and Kate Bosworth (both looking better than I expected — this might be a career high for Kate Bosworth, not that such a thing means much) have to deal with the advances of a bunch of tough rednecks when they move back to her hometown in Louisiana. The trailer gives most of the structure of the film away — basically two acts of intimidation followed by one extended siege setpiece — but doesn’t really give away what the movie is doing. So is it really a straight thriller? I doubt it, because that’s not in the DNA of Peckinpah’s original, and I suspect Rod Lurie’s plans to remake the film were more ambitious than delivering a mere thriller.
Check the trailer after the break and see what you think. Read More »
