How things change in a year. The last time we got an update on The Last Days of American Crime, it was that Law Abiding Citizen director F. Gary Gray had signed on to direct Sam Worthington. Now it seems Gray and Worthington are both out, while commercial and music video director Anthony Mandler has entered talks to make his feature debut on the comic book adaptation. Meanwhile, on the other side of the camera, Noomi Rapace may or may not still be attached to star. More details after the jump.

I’ll say this for Jonathan Liebesman‘s Clash of the Titans sequel Wrath of the Titans: the movie really doesn’t look to skimp on the creatures and mythical monsters. Not only that, but it gives the returning Sam Worthington a haircut that is really worthy of the legacy of Harry Hamlin’s style from the 1981 Clash of the Titans. (Not sure that’s a good thing, actually.)
Anyway, the sequel has Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes reprising their roles as Zeus and Hades, and adds Toby Kebbell and Rosamund Pike, both of whom get a couple good shots in this new trailer. But most of what this new look affers is monsters, monsters, monsters. Which is a big part of what we really need from a movie like this, after all. Check it out below. Read More »
Does Warner Bros. not care if anyone watches the trailer for Wrath of the Titans? Less than an hour after the trailer debut for The Dark Knight Rises — the most anticipated trailer release in many months — and at the same time as Fox’s first look at Prometheus, the studio has also dropped the first footage of the sequel to Clash of the Titans.
Wrath of the Titans looks like it has gone all-out to include as much stuff as possible, but that may just be how the trailer is cut. Check it out below. Read More »

2011 was the biggest year ever for sequels, with a record-breaking 27 scheduled to hit theaters. And while it’s too early to say exactly how many we can expect in 2012 and beyond, judging by posts like this one it seems safe to say that the trend won’t be dying down anytime soon. After the jump:
- Entertainment Weekly unveils the first look at Sam Worthington in Wrath of the Titans
- Sony registers domain names for the as-yet-unannounced Insidious 2
- Steven Spielberg’s longtime producer Kathleen Kennedy says Jurassic Park 4 is still looking for “a great script”
- Kennedy also says the sequel to The Adventures of Tintin could hit as early as Christmas 2014
- Bradley Cooper reveals that The Hangover Part III could start shooting in L.A. in September

Warner Bros. is hedging its bets with the Clash of the Titans series. The first film — well, the first film in this current incarnation of the series — was directed by Louis Leterrier and earned nearly half a billion dollars worldwide despite becoming a poster child for terrible post-converted 3D. That was enough to put another movie into production right quick.
The sequel, Wrath of the Titans, is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, and written by Dan Mazeau, David Leslie Johnson, and Steven Knight with story credit given to Greg Berlanti. Warners must be happy with how that sequel, now in post-production, is shaping up, because Mazeau and Johnson have been hired to write a provisional Clash of the Titans 3. Read More »

Training Day director Antoine Fuqua‘s been attached to a great number of projects over the past year, but while some of those movies are actually coming together now, others have quietly fallen apart. Although it’s too soon to tell what’ll come of his latest gig, the Relativity drama Hunter Killer, today’s announcement of some possible casting for the film seems like an encouraging step. Gerard Butler has reportedly entered talks to star in the military thriller, while Sam Worthington is being “eyed” for a different part. More details afte the jump.

We’ll have to say this every time one of two films comes up for the next few months. Don’t get Man on a Ledge, the trailer for which you’ll find below, confused with The Ledge, the trailer for which we saw some time ago.
Man on a Ledge stars Sam Worthington as a man pushed to the breaking point when he is tagged as the perpetrator of a crime. Elizabeth Banks is the negotiator who tries to prevent him from taking his last step, and Jamie Bell and Ed Harris are involved in the story, too. But is it all cover for a heist of some sort? That’s how it seems, while Elizabeth Banks doesn’t seem smartly cast as the negotiator, I’m eager to see Jamie Bell doing a little criminal activity. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
The last time we saw footage from Texas Killing Fields, we were looking at a trailer dubbed into Italian. Now we’ve got a somewhat different trailer in English, which will give you a much better idea of what to expect from the film. Item number one: Sam Worthington‘s pretty dodgy Texas accent. Next: a tone that really does seem more like a TV police procedural than a feature film to stand up against giants like Zodiac.
And we wouldn’t normally be tempted to compare this to Zodiac, but the film is based on a script that Danny Boyle once called “almost too dark to get made ,” and the director who ended up taking it on is Michael Mann’s daughter Ani Canaan Mann. So there has been reason to hope that the film might be better than the one dubbed trailer made it out to be. Watch the English trailer below and see what you think. Read More »
Texas Killing Fields (also referred to as The Fields) has been in development for some time, once with Danny Boyle, who called the script “almost too dark to get made,” set to direct. The script passed into new hands, and the film finally shot under the direction of Michael Mann’s daughter Ani Canaan Mann, with Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chloe Moretz, Stephen Graham, Jessica Chastain and Annabeth Gish in the key roles.
The film follows a set of real-life killings in Texas and two cops, one a local and the other a New York City transplant, who pursued the killer. The film was recently one of the surprise announcements for this year’s Venice Film Festival — a surprise because it has flown under the radar so far, with the high-profile festival berth being the film’s first big PR splash — and a trailer, dubbed in Italian, is now available to go along with that announcement.
