Tribeca Film Festival is brilliantly under way and they’ll be plenty of posters, trailers, and announcements during the festival. This one comes today in the form of Karl Mueller’sMr. Jones starring Jessica Dowdeswell and Jon Foster. The poster, images, and a clip of the film are down below. Check it out!
From the producer of the Sundance smash hit THE PACT and the writer of Xavier Gens’ THE DIVIDE, MR. JONES is a journey into a nightmare that’s so real, even daylight brings no relief.
Scott and Penny just moved to a remote cabin to escape the pressures of the world and breathe new life into their art. Their only neighbor for miles is a strange hermit who only comes out at night, under the shroud of darkness. As Scott and Penny get deeper into his world, they start to suspect that this man is actually an infamous artist known only as “Mr. Jones,” and they’ve stumbled across an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to document his bizarre existence.
Jaime Foxx has been having sort of a career renaissance lately, so why is he looking so blue? Well apparently it’s for his new role as Electro the villain in the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. The film is being shot in New York and like most things celebrity, photos were taken of the actor in full makeup walking around Times Square. Peep the large photo and Jaime’s comments on the costume after the jump! Read more on Blue (Da Ba Dee): Jaime Foxx channels Electro in Amazing Spider-Man 2…
George Clooney’s film, The Monuments Men, won’t be in theaters until December 18th, but today we are privy to a couple first look images from the movie. I am calling it the early frontrunner for awards season (read my Awards Profile here), so I find it a good omen that we get our first look at the film on the same day that AMPAS announced the date for the 86th Academy Awards. It goes without saying that The Monuments Men will be one of the more anticipated films of 2013. Have a look at the images (featuring Matt Damon in uniform and a mustached George Clooney) after the jump.
We are ramping up to the Oscars and the Academy has released some new poster art to celebrate the occasion. Olly Moss, the talented designer, was commissioned to create a poster inspired by past Best Picture winners and came up with the wonderful creation you see on the right. The poster was made in conjunctions with Gallery1988 and will include a final poster once Argo wins again a Best Picture is crowned on February 24. I’ve included some of my favorites after the jump but you can view the whole gallery here.
Paul Weitz, Academy Award nominated writer of About a Boy (2002) and the popular high school comedy, American Pie (1999) will be releasing his latest comedy/drama starring Tina Fey (TV’s “30 Rock”) and Paul Rudd (Judd Apatow’s This is 40). Admission, which tells the story of an admissions representative at Princeton University that goes on the road and manages to reconnect with family and friends. Even new connections are potentially made. Academy Award Nominee Lily Tomlin, Michael Sheen, and Wallace Shawn also co-star.
Admissionis scheduled to be released in theaters March 22, 2013.
The Academy’s annual Oscar luncheon took place on Monday afternoon. AMPAS always gets the group of nominees together for a sort of “class photo,” which results in a fun game of “Where’s Waldo?” to find your favorite stars and filmmakers. Who do you spot? Have a look at the bigger picture after the jump. Read more on 2013 Academy Award Nominees Luncheon Photo…
One of the most anticipated films of 2013 is Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines, starring Academy Award nominees Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper. In Pines, Gosling plays a motorcycle rider turned bank robber, while Cooper is the rookie cop out to stop him. Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta, and Dane DeHaan also star. Fortunately, the film opens March 29th, 2013, so we won’t have to wait until the end of the year for this one. Check out nine new images from the film (plus the one above) after the jump.
It’s that time of the year where we want to hear from all of you. There is a short 10 question survey for you to fill out and I beg that you take a few moments to fill out the survey in order to make the Awards Circuit a better place for all entertainment enthusiasts. Greatly appreciated!

In terms of cities being blown up/destroyed/at the center of global disasters, San Francisco is second only to New York City in most destroyed city in film. As someone who grew up in the Bay Area, I always find a perverse delight in seeing San Francisco at the center of destruction in movies so count me in the multitude of people who are enjoying the viral trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s new film. Pacific Rim, which had an enthusiastic reaction at Comic-Con this summer, is breaking it’s radio silence with a new viral video and blueprints for the robots that will fight the attackers, with rumors swirling that a first trailer will arrive in front of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Check out the cool video and poster after the jump!
Hitchcock is having himself quite a renaissance these days with the HBO special The Girl and Hitchcock set to hit theaters real soon. Coming in the spring we’ll be getting another reference to the mystery master with the A&E series Bates Motel. Based on the film Psycho, but not necessarily a direct prequel, the series cast Freddie Highmore as Norman and Vera Farmiga as his mother. Today the first official picture was released along with some spoiler scoop from Shock Till You Drop. Check out the full photo after the jump!
The alternate title for this post was going to be “Daniel Radcliffe is horny… in new movie role” but that’s neither here nor there, the first still from Daniel Radcliffe’s newest role in Horns has arrived online. The movie is based on the book of the same name about Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), a lost young man who wakes up one day with devilish horns growing out of his forehead. The horns give off certain powers, like causing people to open up and reveal their innermost secrets (he can also apparently communicate with snakes, a new requirement for a Radcliffe role?). Perrish decides to use these powers to discover who really raped and murdered his girlfriend. On paper this sounds like a fun movie and a great change of pace for Radcliffe, who has been choosing varied roles since the end of the Harry Potter franchise. Check out the full size image after the jump! Read more on Daniel Radcliffe gets devilish in first still for ‘Horns’…
Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp will team up to tame the West in next year’s The Lone Ranger. We have some new images and a poster for the new film produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Gore Verbinski. The trailer will debut on iTunes on Wednesday at 7 AM PST. Have a look at the images after the jump…
After the sour taste that the original Wolverine spin off left in our mouths, many speculated that the sequel might not happen. But thanks to the critical and box office success of X-Men: First Class and Hugh Jackman’s massive popularity, we are getting a Wolverine sequel in July 2013. Taking it’s plot from one of the most famous comic book story lines, this new movie will find Wolverine in Japan and follow his adventures there. The first picture of a totally shredded Jackman as Wolverine has arrived online and you can checkout the full size after the jump!
The habit that Terrence Malick has of cutting down the screen time of his A-list actors is almost a joke by now. With his new film ‘To the Wonder’, it appears that Ben Affleck is the latest to join the ever growing list (not to mention all the people who are just plain cut out of his flicks), though we have a new image from the movie that proves that he’s in more than that one still we’ve seen previously. We also get our first look at Olga Kurylenko, so there’s that too. You can see the image after the jump, and stay tuned for news on if the film is coming out this year or next. It all depends on who acquires the movie. Check out the full sized picture below…
It’s all coming together now for Peter Jackson. A few weeks ago it was announced that Jackson would indeed split his Hobbit sequels into a trilogy, and now The Hollywood Reporter has learned more about the sequels. The sequels will be titled The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again, to be released on December 13, 2013 and July 18, 2014 respectively. Whether that last title is a tongue in cheek reference to how we’re getting prequel film to a story we already have most of the information for is anyone’s guess. It’s interesting that Warner Bros. has put the third Hobbit film on the same day Fox was set to release the sequel to X-Men: First Class. One of them (most likely Fox) will have to blink and change the date right? Giving us another look into the film i09 and Gamma Squad have released images from the 2013 annual, including the first image of Lee Pace as Thrandruil, Legolas’ father, all of which you can see after the jump!
Regardless of what one might think about the remake of the classic horror movie Carrie (I, for one, am not a fan), the modernized version of the classic Stephen King tale is indeed going to happen. Thanks to Chloe Moretz’ instagram and Entertainment Weekly we get our first look at the mother-daughter combo of Moretz and Julianne Moore. It will be interesting to see the reception these pics, and ultimately the film will get considering the last Carrie remake was awful. In any case, these photos give us a good look at the main players so take a gander after the jump!
With The Paperboy set to hit cineplexes soon, Lee Daniels is hard at work on his next feature film, The Butler. Based on the Wil Haygood’s report “A Butler Well Served by This Election,” the film will tell the story Allen, who worked for eight presidents, starting with Harry Truman in 1952 and ending in 1986 with Ronald Reagan. Daniels has assembled quite the cast for the film (Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Liam Neeson, John Cusack, Alan Rickman, Jane Fonda, Robin Williams, James Marsden, Aml Ameen and Liev Schreiber are among it’s members) and now we get our first glimpse at Forest Whitaker as the title character via Coming Soon. Take a look at the first image after the jump!
As we barrel towards the fall movie season, more information is coming out regarding highly anticipated titles. Knowing that Summit Entertainment has released tons of new stills for two of its biggest films, The Perks of Being A Wallflower and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 2. Whether by shear coincidence or manufactured circumstances, these photos are arriving during a strange period of high public discussion about the stars of the movie, with Kristen Stewart’s dalliance with a director or Ezra Miller’s coming out. In either circumstance, these pics are a welcome look at movies that will surely be discussed a lot in the following months. Take a gander at the photos after the jump!
Perhaps no movie far down the pike has me as excited as Darren Aronofsky’s film ‘Noah’. A true passion project that the filmmaker has been working years to get off the ground, it’s currently in production (scheduled for release in March of 2014) and Aronofsky has been tweeting out fun little updates to tease us even more. In a USA Today story on his tweets (found here) they also managed to debut the first image of Russell Crowe in the title role. You can see the full image after the jump, but it looks more or less like you’d expect one who builds an ark to look, especially when played by Crowe. Take a gander below at the larger look.
If that sneaky on set glance at Daniel Day-Lewis walking with Steven Spielberg that’s been going around for a while isn’t enough for you, well today is your lucky day my friend. Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first true image of DDL playing the title role in ‘Lincoln’, and it’s a nice big picture that really hits home how transformative the man can be. You can see the full image after the jump, and I’m pretty sure you’ll be impressed. Stay tuned for a potential Trailer in the coming weeks, but for now this first look will have to do. You can check it out in all of its glory below…
First images have surfaced for Robert Lorenz’s film Trouble with the Curve starring Academy Award Winner Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, and Justin Timberlake. The film tells the story of an ailing baseball scout that takes his daughter along for one last recruiting trip.
This has been labeled the “final” acting performance from Clint Eastwood, whom has delivered when directed by himself in roles like Million Dollar Baby (2004). However, Eastwood has had a few hiccups in films like Gran Torino (2008) and Blood Work (2002). Is there a consensus out there for Eastwood to having an acting award to accompany his two directing Oscars? Either way, this is a project to keep an eye on for the rest of the season especially after the success of Bennett Miller’s Moneyball, which seemed to follow the same equation.
Though I was unable to attend Hall H due to the ridiculously long line, but the word out of the hall was that the Warner Bros. panel went extremely well. In addition to blowing people away with footage from Man of Steel, Pacific Rim, and a teaser trailer for a possible Godzilla remake, they released two new posters. While both are pretty basic, it’s nice to see some more imagery from Man of Steel, which will premiere a teaser trailer in front of The Dark Knight Rises. Check them out after the jump!
When it was announced that the character of Q would be returning to the James Bond franchise, I don’t think anyone especially minded (certainly not myself). Things were a bit more split though when Ben Wishaw was cast as the character. Personally, I never had an issue, but making the character so young didn’t sit well with some. Well, today you can see your first glance of Wishaw as Q, with the full image after the jump. I think he looks just fine, but time will tell I suppose. Check him out (with 007 in the background) below…
