Crimson Peak, the new film from Guillermo del Toro, is the writer/director’s take on a gothic haunted house movie, with Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain as sibling residents of an old mansion who welcome Hiddleston’s bride, played by Mia Wasikowska, into their midst.
Actually, “welcome” isn’t the word to use at all, as this new Crimson Peak clip shows. While the first couple trailers for the film have been all atmosphere and effects, this one is mostly drama, as Chastain thoroughly denies any warm welcome to her brother’s new bride. Read More »
Alice Through the Looking Glass acts as both sequel and prequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 film, with James Bobin jumping in as director from a script written by Linda Woolverton. (Burton is still on as producer.) While story details have been thin so far, today’s D23 live-action panel revealed that the big tipping point is a problem with the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), which leads Alice (Mia Wasikowska) on a journey through time, aided by Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), “a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.” Read More »

Having already tackled Alice in Wonderland for Tim Burton and Jane Eyre for Cary Fukunaga, Mia Wasikowska has found herself yet another adaptation of a literary classic about a young woman looking for more.
Directed by Sophie Barthes and based on the novel by Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary stars Wasikowska as Emma. She marries a small-town doctor and then becomes bored with her provincial life. Her drive for glamour, excitement, and passion send her down a self-destructive road, as she engages in extramarital affairs and racks up massive debts.
Henry Lloyd-Hughes plays Emma’s husband, Ezra Miller and Logan Marshall-Green her paramours, and Rhys Ifans a local merchant. Paul Giamatti, Olivier Gourmet, and Laura Carmichael are also in the mix. Watch the Madame Bovary trailer after the jump. Read More »
There’s a film with Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, and Richard Roxburgh that US audiences haven’t had a chance to see yet.

But the anthology structure and long running time mean that has mostly been on the festival circuit for a while. Check out a trailer for The Turning below. Read More »
