Crimson Peak clip

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 »

I Saw the Light footage

When a biopic depicts a major musical figure, one of the first orders of promotional business is to show the lead actor performing a key song. It’s the way to say “see? they can do it!” So here’s Tom Hiddleston as Hank Williams in the film I Saw the Light, in a clip that takes place in the studio when Williams lays down the classic track ‘Move it on Over,’ which was a watershed tune for the singer. (A song, by the way, about a guy literally sleeping in the doghouse after his wife locks him out.)

We don’t have a trailer for the film yet, but here’s the first I Saw the Light footage, complete with a little bonus glimpse of Elizabeth Olsen as Audrey Sheppard Williams. Read More »

High-Rise images

There’s no trailer for Ben Wheatley‘s High-Rise, seemingly in part because there’s isn’t a firm release plan announced in the UK, and no US distributor. We’re waiting eagerly for news of the film’s theatrical release. In the meantime, however, we’ve got two new High-Rise images showing Jeremy Irons, Tom Hiddleston, and Elisabeth Moss as they appear in the film.

And while images of Hiddleston’s character that we’ve seen in the past (like the one above) made the guy look like his life is pretty together, this new shot shows him in a different place. And then there’s a shot of Irons which is a bit mysterious, even ominous. Read More »

I Saw the Light

The choice to cast Tom Hiddleston as all-American country legend Hank Williams in I Saw the Light raised some eyebrows at first, but Hiddleston’s clearly been working hard to prove himself up to the challenge. Now the first batch of I Saw the Light images offer a good long look at Hiddleston in character, so audiences can begin to judge for themselves.

Fellow MCU-er Elizabeth Olsen co-stars as Hank’s first wife Audrey. Marc Abraham (Flash of Genius) directed. Flip through the new I Saw the Light images after the jump. Read More »
