Saoirse Ronan and Sam Rockwell, two actors with a lot of charm, are teaming up in the Searchlight murder mystery film, See How They Run.
The studio just released the film’s title and the first images this week. In addition to Ronan and Rockwell, the ensemble cast includes Adrien Brody, Ruth Wilson and David Oyelowo.
The film is set in the West End of 1950s London, where plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theater underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.
Tom George directed the flick. He’s directed several episodes of television, but it looks like this will be his first feature film, and what a cast to have for your first feature.
Production recently wrapped on the movie and it’s currently set for a release date in 2022. According to the report, it will be a theatrical release, so no streaming plan here.
Gotta say, I’m excited for this. I love a good murder mystery, and with Rockwell and Ronan sharing the spotlight? I’m all the way in.
You probably remember Ilana Glazer for her brilliant performance in the hilarious Comedy Central series, Broad City. She was absolutely perfect in the series, and now she’s taking her talents to the land of features.
She recently filmed a thriller titled ‘False Positive’ alongside Justin Theroux, Sophia Bush and Pierce Brosnan.
The A24 film, which was directed/co-written by John Lee, focuses on a couple struggling with fertility and the seemingly perfect doctor who wants to help them achieve their dreams of becoming parents.
After months of trying and failing to get pregnant, Lucy (Ilana Glazer) and Adrian (Justin Theroux) finally find their dream fertility doctor in the illustrious Dr. Hindle (Pierce Brosnan). But after becoming pregnant with a healthy baby girl, Lucy begins to notice something sinister through Hindle’s gleaming charm, and she sets out to uncover the unsettling truth about him, and her own birth story.
Sounds intriguing enough, yeah? The thriller flick is expected to drop on Hulu on June 25, 2021.
A trailer has not been released, but we have to imagine it’s coming soon, considering they just dropped the first images from the film.
When it was announced that Kristen Stewart would play Princess Diana in the upcoming film ‘Spencer‘ people were both confused and delighted.
Stewart probably wasn’t the first choice a lot of people had in mind, but she’s a talented actress, and this could be her most challenging role to date.
Now that production on the movie has started, the studio has decided to release a first look image of Stewart as Princess Diana.
The movie, which is being directed by Pablo Larrain, is set over the course of a single weekend in Diana’s life as she spends the Christmas holiday with the royal family.
The film tracks Diana’s emotional journey as she comes to a decision to leave her marriage to Prince Charles.
Larrain’s credits as a director include Jackie and Neruda, so it’s safe to say he’s super comfortable in the historical drama space.
He told Deadline that he’s really excited to be working with Stewart on this project…
Kristen is one of the great actors around today. To do this well, you need something very important in film, which is mystery. Kristen can be many things, and she can be very mysterious and very fragile an ultimately very strong as well, which is what we need. The combination of those elements made me think of her. The way she responded to the script and how she is approaching the character, it’s very beautiful to see.
They’re hoping to release the film this fall/winter.
A Ronald Regan biopic will be coming soon to a theater near you, and Dennis Quaid will be playing the former president.
The movie, which was directed by Sean McNamara, was adapted from conservative author Paul Kengor’s book, The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism.
It follows Reagan as a child, as a young man coming up in Hollywood (played by Wizards of Waverly Place alum David Henrie), and eventually as president, into the later years of his life. Reagan’s role as Screen Actors Guild president and the fight he led against Communism in the industry will also feature in the movie.
Entertainment Weekly talked to Quaid about being offered the role, and he admits that he was shocked at first.
I didn’t understand why they were offering me Ronald Reagan because I just didn’t see it. I admired him so much, and so I had a chill of fear go down my spine when I was offered it. That’s usually kind of a sign that maybe I should do it, because it’s out of my comfort zone.
Given that we’re in such a turbulent political climate, some people are worried about releasing a film like this right now, but the filmmakers promise that it’s not a partisan film.
The way the film is set up, it’s not Democrats-are-good, Republicans-are-bad or vice versa. it’s more about: There was totalitarianism in the world and Americans together helped to end that. My hope is that it’s a movie that doesn’t divide, but unifies.
Even though Sylvester Stallone is 73-years-old, he’s still in pretty good shape. Good enough shape to play a superhero in the upcoming film, Samaritan.
The film, which was directed by Julius Avery, follows a young boy who is on a journey to discover if a mythic superhero, who vanished 20 years ago following a tragic event, is still alive.
Avery talked to Total Film about how incredible Stallone is…
This is a big event movie – we see our heroes kicking ass. We’re going to see Sly do things he hasn’t done in a long time, and in a really inventive way. He’s 73 years old! I’m amazed by how much he actually does. I’m telling you, most guys in their twenties wouldn’t be able to do what Sly does in this movie.
We believe you. Stallone is one of a kind. There is no doubt about that.
Avery has also confirmed that this will be a grounded superhero flick, so if you’re looking for something that resembles the Marvel universe, this probably won’t be it.
The movie is scheduled to hit theaters in June. Hopefully a trailer is released soon.
Based on Greg Rucka and artist Leandro Fernandez’s comic book of the same name, The Old Guard tells of a small group of soldiers, led by a woman named Andromache of Scythia or Andy, who are inexplicably immortal and have been working as mercenaries through the ages.
But in the 21st century, the novelty of not dying is long gone as the group gets a jolt in their bones when they discover the existence of a new immortal, a black woman serving in the Marines, at the same time as a nefarious organization captures their undying actions on camera.
Did you get all that? I’m not sure I did, but I suppose it sounds interesting enough. Not a huge action-fantasy fan, but I feel the need to watch every film Theron stars in. She brings it every single time.
The movie is set to premiere on Netflix on July 10, which means a trailer should be coming soon.
As we’ve mentioned before, Timothee Chalamet is one of Hollywood’s most talented young actors. He has the potential to be the next Leonardo DiCaprio, which is a pretty big deal because Hollywood is in desperate need of the next star. Leo, Pitt…they are aging, but thankfully we have stars like Chalamet and Michael B. Jordan coming up.
Chalamet’s next big film is Denis Villenueve’s Dune, a film adaptation of the 1965 science fiction novel of the same name. Of course, it’s not the first adaptation of the written work, but fans are hoping it turns out to be the best.
The 1965 book was so seismic in its influence that its echoes still turn up in sci-fi and fantasy storytelling half a century later. Still, it has stubbornly defied appropriate adaptation itself.
Chalamet is playing Paul Atreides in the movie, and this week we were delighted with the first image showing him in character.
The noble Atreides family instead hails from the planet Caladan, the exact opposite of Arrakis in almost every way. It is a world of greenery, oceans, and rain; memories of it haunt Paul and his family throughout Dune as they struggle with the hellish conditions of Arrakis.
Dune is set to hit theaters on December 18, 2020, but of course that could change depending on how things play out with this coronavirus. By December, we should (SHOULD) be able to hit up the theater again, but you never know. If we see another surge in the winter, theaters might be forced to close again.
It looks like Dave Franco is trying to follow in the footsteps of John Krasinski. As you all know, Krasinski directed/co-wrote the horror-thriller A Quiet Place back in 2018. The movie starred his wife Emily Blunt.
Franco is attempting to do something very similar. He will be making his directorial debut with the thriller film ‘The Rental‘ starring his wife, Alison Brie.
In the film, Brie co-stars alongside Dan Stevens as a couple who set out on a double date vacation with two of their friends.
But things take a turn for the unsettling when secrets start to come out and it starts to feel like the four friends might not be alone.
Franco co-wrote the script for this film with Joe Swanberg, the creator of the Netflix series, Easy, which Franco acted in.
IFC Films purchased the rights to the film this week and for right now, they plan to release it on July 24, 2020.
Franco released the following statement:
I’ve admired the IFC brand and their films for as long as I can remember. I couldn’t be more excited about partnering with them for my directorial debut. They have such a strong track record when it comes to elevated genre films, which makes them the perfect home for THE RENTAL.
Dean Parisot, the director of the upcoming ‘Bill & Ted 3’ film is finally giving fans a little more information on this sequel.
In addition to sharing the first look image you see above, he also shared some much needed plot details. This third film, titled, ‘Bill & Ted Face the Music‘ was written by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, the same writing team from the previous installments.
During a little piece for Empire magazine, Parisot revealed Bill and Ted will be on a ticking clock during this sequel…
We’ve gone from a homework assignment to saving all space and time. We bypassed all those possible traumas in the middle. They have an hour and 18 minutes. So they’re in trouble. And let’s say that they have to travel all over the place to try and figure it out.
So this likely means the runtime of the film will be just one hour and 18 minutes, which is honestly a breath of fresh air. So many films are going toward a longer runtime now. It can be a bit exhausting.
This movie is expected to hit theaters on August 21, 2020.
