Powers

After so, so many years of trying, Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming‘s Powers is finally coming to the screen this December thanks to Sony’s PlayStation Network. Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward lead the cast as two cops who specialize in cases involving “Powers,” i.e., people with superpowers.

Shooting on the sci-fi cop drama began about a month ago, and today the first pic of Copley and Heyward in character has finally been released. Hit the jump for your Powers first look.

Sharlto Copley

Actor Sharlto Copley and director Neill Blomkamp broke through on a global scale together with District 9, and then went Hollywood together with Elysium. Now they’re teaming up a third time for Chappie, which Copley says finally has them “finding our stride.”

In a new interview, Copley discusses his “child-like robot” character and the “poor man’s motion-capture” being used to animate him. Hit the jump to read his comments.

Maleficent Japanese trailer

The movie may be called Maleficent, but it’s really a spin on the classic Sleeping Beauty fable. And the new Maleficent Japanese trailer is all about Sleeping Beauty — both the character and the 1959 Disney movie about her.

The promo establishes its connection to the earlier film right away, showing us clips of the animated film. Then, with the help of some new footage, it emphasizes the weird bond that develops between Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) and the child she’s doomed (played by Elle Fanning as a teen). Watch it after the jump.

Maleficent trailer

It was only yesterday that we got our first look at Angelina Jolie‘s glorious wings, but if the new Maleficent trailer is any indication they play a key role in the movie. She’s doing all sorts of things with them in the promo — flying, fending off enemies, unfurling them for dramatic effect, and, most intriguingly, mourning their loss.

Not that she’s any less intimidating without them. The video also shows Maleficent at her most vengeful, putting a curse on a cute little baby and shoving the well-meaning fairies into a box. Watch the latest Maleficent trailer after the jump.

sigourney-weaver-2

Briefly: Neill Blomkamp is following Elysium with the film Chappie, in which a couple of gangster steal a robot named Chappie, which ends up adopted into ”a very strange and dysfunctional family.” Sharlto Copley is providing the voice of Chappie, and Hugh Jackman and Dev Patel are cast as well.

Now Sigourney Weaver has joined the cast of the film. We don’t know the specifics on her role, but given that “dysfunctional family” aspect of the story, it’s possible to imagine she’s the matriarch of that setup.

Sony has set a March 27, 2015 date for the film. The following is what we’ve known of the story so far: “Chappie tells the story of a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes. The film will star Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie, with Ninja and Yolandi Visser, voices of the South African Zef counter-culture movement and members of rap-rave duo Die Antwoord, as the two gangsters.” [Variety]

oldboy-aug-2

As fascinating as Josh Brolin‘s fierce Joe Doucett is, a story as dark and twisted as Oldboy needs a good villain to really tie everything together. So far, FilmDistrict has been playing coy with Joe’s demented tormenter, but that changes today with our first peek at Sharlto Copley as Adrian Pryce.

In addition, the marketing team has also revealed twenty more posters, one for each year of Joe’s captivity. They’re a great way to drive home just how long twenty years is — and a good reminder of how quickly we’re growing old. Has it really been two decades since Lorena Bobbitt chopped off her husband’s dick? Check ‘em all out after the jump.
