Josh Brolin Pops Out of the Box in ‘Oldboy’ Poster

oldboy

FilmDistrict has at long last decided to let Josh Brolin out of the box together with a rear glimpse of Elizabeth Olsen in a new poster for Spike Lee‘s upcoming remake of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy.

The poster, which is an actual shot captured from the film, comes from the designing mind of Neil Kellerhouse who has provided artwork for recent films such as The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network whilst the handwritten title was provided by Mr. Brolin himself.

Along with the release of the new poster comes the news that we’ll also get to see a red band trailer in all its glory this Wednesday, July 10.

As soon as the trailer hits the net we’ll be sure to share it with you. Oldboy is released in the US this October 25 whilst we’ll be able to catch the film here in the UK from December 6. In the meantime we’ll leave you with the aforementioned poster and plot synopsis.

OLDBOY_1st_poster[Click on the poster to enlarge]

Oldboy follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.

The First ‘Curse of Chucky’ Trailer is Out of the Box

curse-of-chucky-trailer

The first trailer for the upcoming Curse of Chucky starring Fiona Dourif (True Blood) and her father Brad Dourif has hit the net thanks to Mashable.

The production team certainly look to be aiming for the scares and style of the original rather than the wisecracking Chucky spoofs of late. Brad Dourif is back as everyone’s favourite demonic “Good Guys” doll which nefarious serial killer Charles Lee Ray possessed when shot and surrounded in a police shoot-out. If that wasn’t reason enough to get all excited, the creator of the 1988 original Child’s Play, Don Mancini has written, directed and produced Curse of Chucky so there should be plenty of old-school Chucky goodness and the trailer certainly hints at that.

Curse of Chucky will be releasing on VOD on the 24th of September and DVD/Blu-ray October 8 in the US. “Don’t forget Chucky.”

ARVE Error: id and provider shortcodes attributes are mandatory for old shortcodes. It is recommended to switch to new shortcodes that need only url

He’s back! From the filmmakers that brought you Chucky comes the terrifying return of the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of a notorious serial killer. When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif, True Blood), she doesn’t give it much thought. However, after her mother’s mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos. The return of America’s favorite toy, voiced again by Brad Dourif, is unrated and full of more blood-splattered thrills and chills.

First ‘Out of The Furnace’ Photos With Christian Bale and Woody Harrelson

out_of_the_furnace_2

After his debut Crazy Heart met great success, director Scott Cooper is is all set to follow it up with Out of the Furnace, now set for a limited November 27th release, with a wider release on December 6th. Whilst still quite the wait a number of first look images have now been revealed online.

The film stars Christian Bale as Russell Baze, who the actor describes not as “a slick action character….but he finds himself having to confront these people in order to do the right thing. He’s only got his own fortitude and will power, nothing else.” The film was shot in Braddock, Pennsylvania and, according to Cooper, to make sure he got the local accent down to a tee Bale recorded a local man and listened to the recordings “endlessly, even between takes.” Cooper went on to describe the film as “a testament to the steel workers who have suffered through trying economic times. It shows the plight of the citizens of Braddock. They have banded together and emerged stronger now. It’s much like the process of what steel undergoes — intense heat which emerges stronger as it comes out of the furnace.”

Following the release of the images we expect to be able to share the film’s first trailer with you soon which we hope will be backed up with some of the film’s original music composed by Eddie Vedder – Cooper revealed that the Pearl Jam track Release was an inspiration for him whilst writing the film. The film also stars Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Zoë Saldana, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe and Sam Shepard.

We’ll leave you with the exclusive first images and a poster for the film:

Guillermo del Toro Eyes Benedict Cumberbatch as Frankenstein

Frankenstein13_1833319i

The endlessly active Guillermo del Toro obviously can’t get enough of Benedict Cumberbatch, so much so that following their upcoming collaboration in Crimson Peak, he is already looking to collaborate with Cumberbatch on another of his impending projects – Frankenstein.

This news was confirmed when the director spoke to the Daily Telegraph about wanting to team up with the star of BBC’s Sherlock in a film version of Frankenstein. Del Toro has been preparing this project on and off for a good five years and in 2009 he was reported to have conducted a few shooting tests, chosing Doug Jones (“Pan’s Labryinth, Hellboy) to play Frankenstein’s monster although nothing came out of that.

Back to the present day and, given Cumberbatch’s recent appearance in Danny Boyle’s stage version of Frankenstein alongside another present day Sherlock, Jonny Lee Miller, with both actors sharing the roles of the monster and Doctor Frankenstein, del Toro’s choice was pretty much going to be made for him on a silver platter.

This is all just talk at the moment and, given the fact that Fox have confirmed the release of their own version of Frankenstein, starring Daniel Radcliffe, for October 2014, Universal will most likely avoid being too hasty in putting their take on the much loved novel into motion.

As we said, del Toro is quite the busy chap, as always, with Pacific Rim hitting cinemas this Friday, 12th July. Moving on from that he’ll start work adapting his series of novels The Strain for TV to go on to develop his next feature film, the gothic horror Crimson Peak early in 2014, starring the aforementioned Benedict Cumberbatch and Pacific Rim’s Charlie Hunnam.

We’ll leave you with a trailer for Pacific Rim which we are eagerly awaiting to catch in cinemas this Friday.

‘Only God Forgives’ UK Trailer, Clips & Featurettes

Ryan-Gosling-only-god-forgives-wallpaper-320078

Well today has been quite the featurette packed day and this post continues in that very same manner. If yesterday’s UK trailer for Only God Forgives wasn’t enough, four exclusive new film clips together with three featurettes have found their way online.

This is all great news but we must warn you before you go on that if you aren’t one for SPOILERS then continue at your own will.

Other than the odd spoiler here and there the footage certainly provides some insight into the pace and style of the film and those who are only familiar with Nicolas Winding Refn’s previous film might be quite surprised at how different it actually comes accross compared to Drive.

The aforementioned featurettes also finds Refn sharing some of his experiences from the shoot, describing what it was like to film in Bangkok and some of the fighting involved.

Only God Forgives reaches UK shores on the 2nd of August this year.

Pop that kettle back on and enjoy the videos below.

Snowpiercer Featurettes Aplenty

snowpiercer_1

Following Wednesday’s more than healthy dose of photography snapped from Bong Joon-Ho‘s highly-anticipated post-apocalyptic thriller Snowpiercer, set to storm South Korean cinemas this August 1st, a plethora of new videos have been unleashed.

They include a brand new trailer together with interviews with various members of the massive ensemble cast ranging from John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell to Ed Harris. We also get to enjoy some more than welcome exclusive film clips and behind-the-scenes footage and even an animation test from the movie.

Whilst US and UK release dates are yet to be revealed, the film’s distributors, The Weinstein Company, purchased the rights last autumn and held a test screening just last week so we hope to be able to bring good news sooner rather than later.

Go put the kettle on and enjoy the videos below as the relentless uprise begins:

First Trailer for Focus Features’ ‘The Boxtrolls’

the boxtrolls

Following previous releases Coraline and ParaNorman, Focus Features have released the first trailer to their latest animated movie, The Boxtrolls, inspired by Alan Snow’s bestselling children’s book “Here Be Monsters!”

The film follows a band of underground dwelling trolls who, along with the help of an orphan they raised called Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Write), find themselves fighting against an evil townsperson (Ben Kingsley) who wants to eradicate each and every one of them.

Whilst just over a minute long, the trailer clearly comes packed with messages to make, touting not only family diversity but briefly featuring same-sex parents – a hot topic of late given the Supreme Court’s recent decision to strike down Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act.

Both Coraline and ParaNorman were dazzling examples of the animation team working behind the films and the latest trailer shows we are in for the same kind of visual stunnery we have come to expect. Audiences will also be treated to quite the ensemble voice cast with the likes of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley and Tracy Morgan.

The Boxtrolls is scheduled for a September 26 release date in the US and we’ll leave you with the trailer.

Trevorrow Confirms Dedication to Jurassic Park IV

Jurassic park IV Trevorrow

To be or not to be? This has been the question plaguing the upcoming dino-sequel Jurassic Park IV. Some fans were happy when said sequel was announced whilst others rejoiced when the project was put on hiatus.


A recent interview with the film’s director/writer, Colin Trevorrow should put the doubters to bed as he confesses his absolute determination to create a film worthy of standing alongside the original. Although Trevorrow doesn’t delve into any plot details, as such, he does state ““we definitely want to honor what came before us” which would indicate that we are most likely looking at a direct sequel rather than a reboot. We certainly hope this is the case as the origins story has been handled so well before there really is no need for a rehash.

The interview was conducted with Schmoes Know, via Coming Soon which you can watch in full below.

If all goes to plan, we should be able to catch Jurassic Park IV at cinemas some time in the summer of 2015.
