Earlier today, we saw Jonny Weston pushing his girlfried into porn in the About Cherry trailer, but in the first trailer for Chasing Mavericks it’s Weston who’s the wide-eyed ingenue. Weston stars as real-life surfer Jay Moriarity, whose passion for the sport drives him to try and conquer the legendarily dangerous waves at Mavericks in Northern California.
He seeks guidance from local legend Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler), who’s initially resistant but — as it always goes in these stories — eventually relents he sees something of himself in the kid. Abigail Spencer, Elisabeth Shue, and Leven Rambin also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

The Hunger Games launched Jennifer Lawrence into a whole new level career-wise, and she’s got no shortage of promising new projects due out over the next couple of years. She’s already finished shooting David O. Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook and is currently tied up with Susanne Bier’s Serena, and beyond that she’s got sequels lined up for both The Hunger Games and X-Men: First Class. But her next big-screen appearance will actually be for a film she shot before she ever picked up Katniss’ bow and arrow.
Back in 2010, Lawrence shot a horror thriller called House at the End of the Street. Though it’s not a direct remake of anything, as far as I’m aware, it’s apparently influenced by Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho — according to a description that was floating around a couple of years ago, House at the End of the Street was intended to be for that film what Disturbia was for Rear Window. The Mark Tonderai-directed film also stars Elisabeth Shue and Max Thieriot. Watch the new trailer after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Jennifer Lawrence is really covering all the bases. She’s got a resume with acclaimed indies (Winter’s Bone, Like Crazy), the reboot (X-Men: First Class) and the giant blockbuster hit (The Hunger Games). But she has also shot a role in a somewhat old-fashioned looking horror thriller called House at the End of the Street.
Lawrence plays the daughter of Elisabeth Shue, and the two women move into a new home right near a place where a murder once took place. (The house of horrors helps keep rent down in the neighborhood.) The action looks like what someone influenced by Wes Craven’s early efforts might have cooked up. Think of Last House on the Left, perhaps without all the rape — this is a PG-13 thriller. The trailer isn’t quite as old-fashioned, however, as it summarizes the action of the film in reverse order, so we see Lawrence in scream queen mode right off the bat.
Check out the trailer below. Read More »

Joel Schumacher has confirmed in an interview that Halle Berry is in talks to take the lead in the tentatively titled The Hive, about “a female emergency line operator who, in trying to help a young girl, comes up against a killer from her own past.” While nothing is official at this point, the director said, he and Berry are both interested in working together and the producers of The Hive seem to be on board with hiring her.
The thriller is expected to begin shooting in February, though Schumacher has said that he may shoot another, smaller film before that. Berry will next appear in Garry Marshall’s limp-looking ensemble romcom New Year’s Eve, and is currently shooting Cloud Atlas with directors Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski, and Lana Wachowski. [Coming Soon]
