7500 trailer

In the early 2010s, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was everywhere. You’d be hard pressed to find a romantic-comedy or a big action flick without his boyishly good-looking face attached. If the “Internet’s Boyfriend” term had existed when he was around, he was it. But suddenly, he kind of disappeared. Maybe Gordon-Levitt was just flying too far under our radars, but the last time anyone saw him in a major feature film was the poorly received 2016 film Snowden. Well it turns out he was flying high this whole time — with Gordon-Levitt’s big return to feature films taking place in an airplane. Gordon-Levitt stars in 7500, a thriller for Amazon Video that follows a soft-spoken co-pilot who must fend off an airplane hijacking. Watch the 7500 trailer below.

Statistically speaking, flying is actually one of the safest ways to travel — you’re much, much more likely to die in a car accident, for example — but you wouldn’t know it from the number of movies that involve horrible things happening aboard an airplane. The latest of these is 7500, a paranormal thriller from The Grudge helmer Takashi ShimizuRyan Kwanten, Amy Smart, Jerry Ferrara, Leslie Bibb, and Jamie Chung star as passengers and crew en route from Los Angeles to Tokyo when they begin to notice odd occurrences within the cabin. Watch the first teaser after the jump.

Steve Carell‘s been doing quite well for himself in his post-Office career. He’s already got several films lined up for the next couple of years, including Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher and the magician comedy Burt Wonderstone. Now the latest addition to his slate is Conviction, a heist film which he’ll produce and star in. Jonathan Herman‘s Black List script centers around a convicted bank robber who’s forced by the FBI to entrap his former protege.

Which sounds good, except that while Herman’s original screenplay had a tone similar to Heat, it’s now being reworked as an action comedy in the vein of 48 Hours or Ocean’s Eleven. That seems like a pretty major shift, though without having read the script I can’t say for certain whether it’s a terrible idea. The project has yet to confirm a writer to draft a new version of the script. [Deadline]

After the jump, Ben Kingsley, Julian Sands, and Jena Malone join a classic tale with a zeitgeisty twist, while Leslie Bibb, Ryan Kwanten, and Amy Smart board a flight with some paranormal issues.
