Some of you — and you’ll know who you are immediately — just got plans locked in for your 2012 Valentine’s Day. That’s when The Vow will release, allowing us to watch Channing Tatum make one hundred minutes worth of earnest faces as he tries to win back the love of his wife (Rachel McAdams), who doesn’t remember anything of her former life after an accident. And then Scott Speedman enters the picture, and makes things even worse. The trailer below will let you know exactly what The Vow is promising to deliver.

The past couple years have been slightly confusing with respect to Terrence Malick‘s slate of new films. We knew he was making The Tree of Life, which opens limited this weekend after premiering last week at Cannes, where it won the Palme d’Or. For some time it also seemed like he had spun some Tree ideas off into a separate IMAX film (possibly a documentary) called Voyage of Time. But as the release of The Tree of Life approached, all talk of and info on Voyage of Time seemed to dry up. Had the movie been absorbed back into Tree, in the form of that film’s cosmic sequences?
Apparently not. Producer Bill Pohlad spoke to press in Hollywood this evening for the local premiere of The Tree of Life, and he said that Terrence Malick still wants to make the IMAX film. Actress Jessica Chastain was also on hand, and she spoke a bit about working with the director, and the small part she shot for his other upcoming film, a modern drama that has been tentatively called The Burial.

Briefly: Here’s the first news of the official lineup for what could well be a very impressive Cannes Film Festival. Woody Allen‘s Midnight in Paris will open the 64th incarnation of the festival on May 11. It’s an easy choice — the director is a French favorite, and the film is packed with actors that will look great on the opening night red carpet, including a handful of French stars. Sure, Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life might have been a more impressive opening, but hopefully it will spool out within a couple days of the festival’s opening.
The film, packed with a cast that includes Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen, Adrien Brody, Nina Arianda, Corey Stoll, Mimi Kennedy, Kurt Fullerby, Carla Bruni, and Léa Seydoux. The plot sounds like classic Woody Allen: “A romantic comedy about a family traveling to the French capital for business. The party includes a young engaged couple forced to confront the illusion that a life different from their own is better.” Sony PIcutres Classics has picked up the film already, and will release it later in 2011, most likely in the fall.
It’s that time again to present possible choices for a couple big roles in upcoming films. With Henry Cavill announced for Superman, naturally people are turning to speculation about other big roles in the film. Chief among them is Lois Lane, and there is a rumored shortlist of people who are in the running to play the intrepid reporter.
In addition, David O. Russell has mentioned a couple actresses that are of interest for the equally intrepid Elena in Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. Read More »
It’s a very Malick December 1, as we have detailed news on the director’s new film, tentatively titled The Burial, and trailer news for his other new film — the old new film, as it were — The Tree of Life.
JoBlo claims, via Twitter, that there will be a two-minute trailer for The Tree of Life on all prints of Black Swan opening this weekend. I haven’t had confirmation of this, nor any news that the trailer will arrive online at the same time. If you work in a theater and have the Tree trailer with your Black Swan print, let us know, please.
After the break, there’s an extensive rundown of the film Mr Malick recently wrapped in Oklahoma, which stars Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem and Barry Pepper. We’ve known next to nothing about that one so far, other than that Javier Bardem plays a priest, so this will expand your knowledge base on the film by a good margin. Read More »
