Alpha Gang

Alpha Gang, a new sci-fi comedy from sibling directing team David and Nathan Zellner, has put together a ridiculously good looking cast. Andrea Riseborough, Jon Hamm, Nicholas Hoult, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Mackenzie Davis, Sofia Boutella, and Steven Yeun are all set to star in the film, which is about aliens who come to conquer the planet, only to have a change of heart.

the snowman international trailer

While the first official trailer for The Snowman offered a tantalizing look at Michael Fassbender‘s hunt for a serial killer with a chilling trademark, the international trailer delivers even more gore and intrigue.

The adaptation of Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbø‘s novel by Swedish director Tomas Alfredson (of Let the Right One In and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy fame) promises to be more than just a typical murder mystery set in a desolate snowscape, which is beginning to become a startlingly popular genre lately.

The Snowman trailer

It’s been six years since we’ve seen a new movie from Swedish director Tomas Alfredson, the director of acclaimed movies like Let the Right One In and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. But now he’s back with The Snowman, an adaptation of the popular novel by author Jo Nesbø that centers on a dogged detective attempting to stop an elaborate serial killer’s twisted rampage. Check out the first The Snowman trailer below.

Every Thing Will Be Fine trailer

Every Thing Will Be Fine is the latest film from Wim Wenders, with James Franco starring in a film about a man whose life is thrown into disarray after a car accident. Marie-Josée Croze, Rachel McAdams, and Charlotte Gainsbourg also star in the slow-burn drama, and there’s a good Every Thing Will Be Fine trailer to check out below.

In addition to that, we’ve got the Wim Winders touring retrospective that features the 295-minute version of Until the End of the World. (You read that right; it’s a five-hour cut.) Read More »

Independence Day Sequel Cast

There have been a ton of casting announcements over the last month for Roland Emmerich‘s upcoming Independence Day sequel, some of which we have missed reporting on. With the news today that William Fichtner is joining the ensemble which is currently filming, I thought now is a good time to do a round up of the Independence Day sequel cast, giving you all of the details on who is involved, returning, not returning, and what roles they may have in the upcoming sequel.

Charlotte Gainsbourg in Melancholia

Independence Day 2 has added an unlikely source of star power. French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg is boarding the Roland Emmerich-directed sequel, joining Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, and Jessie Usher.

A big-budget sci-fi adventure is an unusual move for Gainsbourg, recently best known for being Lars von Trier’s muse. But maybe those von Trier movies are actually the perfect preparation for Independence Day 2. After the crap she’s been through in Antichrist, Melancholia, and Nymphomaniac, killer aliens should be a piece of cake.  Read More »

Nymphomaniac volume II trailer

The U.S. trailer for Lars von Trier‘s Nymphomaniac Volume II is now online and, finally, Charlotte Gainsbourg gets to shine. Nymphomaniac as a whole tells the story of Joe (Gainsbourg), a woman whose wanton sexuality has literally left her on the street. A man, played by Stellan Skarsgård, helps her out by listening to her story. Volume I focuses on her younger years, which means Gainsbourg is mostly a passive participant. (That film is On Demand now and hits theaters Friday.) Volume II gets into Joe’s older years, which means it features much more of Gainsbourg than the evocative, explicit and powerful first volume.

Nympomaniac Volume II hits theaters April 4 and on VOD Friday, March 21. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

Last week, producer Peter Aalbaek Jensen revealed that the cut of Nymphomaniac that’d make it to Danish theaters wouldn’t be the one Lars von Trier wanted to make. His director’s cut was a butt-numbing 5 1/2 hours long, prompting distributors to whittle it down to a more marketable four hours.

However, Jensen now adds that the longer version could find a release after all, if von Trier really wants it to. It’ll just have to go through alternate routes. Hit the jump to read his explanation, and to check out two more steamy posters.

Nympomaniac header

All you have to say is “Lars von Trier sex movie” to get someone interested in Nymphomaniac. The controversial director has told many visceral and beautiful stories over his career, often with a great sexual frankness, that the idea of him making full movie about sexuality just screams “potential.”

Speaking of screaming, fourteen character posters for the film have just been released that are sure to make even more people excited about the film. They show the film’s stars — actors as Shia LaBeoufJamie Bell,  Uma ThurmanWillem DafoeStellan SkarsgårdChristian Slater, and Charlotte Gainsbourg — in their most intimate moments. I believe on The League they call it “Vinegar Strokes,” the moment right before, and during orgasm. Check out these provocative posters below. Read More »

Lars von Trier may have been banned (or “banned”) from Cannes two years ago for statements made while promoting Melancholia, but that hasn’t stopped him from having a presence at the fest this year.
