New one sheet for The Lost City Of Z arrives online

StudioCanal have just released their latest one sheet for James Gray's (We Own the Night) The Lost City Of Z.





Adapted from David Grann's nonfiction tome, The Lost City Of Z follows Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who headed into the Amazon on a mapping quest in 1925. There, suffering from a nasty case of malaria, he claimed to have discovered a mythical city he called the Lost City of Z. When his adventurer peers roundly mocked the idea as a fantasy or fraud, Fawcett gathered up his son and some other companions and headed back into the jungle to prove his point. And that is the last anyone saw of the party...

Edward Ashley (In The Heart Of The Sea) is Arthur Manley, a young corporal who accompanied Fawcett on his apparently doomed expedition. Robert Pattinson (Remember Me) is Henry Costin, another bored corporal who answered Fawcett's advertisement to become his aide-de-camp. Tom Holland (The Impossible) plays Fawcett's son Jack, while Sienna Miller (Stardust) is Fawcett's supportive wife, Nina. The trailer points to the adventure being a truly risky one, full of dangerous encounters with fauna and arrows.

The Lost City Of Z is out in cinemas now.

New quad poster for Colossal arrives onlline

Neon Pictures have just released their latest quad poster for Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes) Colossal.





Directed by Timecrimes (2007) and Open Windows (2014) helmer Nacho Vigalondo, Colossal finds him putting his unique spin on the genre once again with a much more personal and humorous spin.

The film stars Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables) as Gloria, a woman whose life is falling to pieces thanks to a series of poor life choices and a bit too much boozing. When she loses her job and gets kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, Gloria has to relocate to her hometown, where she reunites with a childhood friend (Jason Sudeikis) and finds herself slipping back into her destructive patterns in no time. At the same time, a giant Kaiju starts pops up in South Korea destroying everything in its path, and Gloria starts to realise that she shares a psychic connection with the monster and her reckless behaviour threatens to destroy more than just her relationships.

With Dan Stevens (The Guest) and Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) also in the cast, Colossal is out in the US now and will arrive in UK cinemas on 19 May.

New banners for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 arrive onlne

Marvel Studios have just released a set of banners for James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2.











Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 finds the Guardians gelling a little more as a unit after their rough early days, but still more ramshackle than, say, the Avengers. They are also not exactly top notch when it comes to helping others, and an early screw up means they face the wrath of Elizabeth Debicki's (The Man From U.N.C.L.E) alien Ayesha. Plus they have to somehow team up with Michael Rooker's Yondu after his Ravagers betray him.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 will see the return of Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper and Karen Gillan, alongside new faces Kurt Russell (Death Proof), Nathan Fillion (Slither) and Sylvester Stallone (The Expendables).

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is out in the UK now and will arrive in the US on 5 May.

Paul Thomas Anderson adds Lesley Manville and Vicky Krieps to his latest

It was announced last year that Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood) were set to reunite for a new film. Now news arrives that the untitled movie is currently shooting and has added Lesley Manville (Maleficent) and Vicky Krieps (A Most Wanted Man).





Focus Features have announced that Anderson recently started production here in the UK on his latest film, which is a drama set in the couture world of 1950s London. And the story is specifically that of an uncompromising dressmaker whose clients include royalty and others in high society. Nothing else has been released about the film, but then it is Paul Thomas Anderson, so frankly we are happy to wait. The director has recruited several of his regular collaborators, including composer Jonny Greenwood and costume designer Mark Bridges.

Focus is handling the movie in the US and is aiming have it in cinemas later this year, with Universal Pictures taking international distribution.

Guy Pearce joins The Catcher Was A Spy

With Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) snagging the lead in the film, baseball based espionage drama The Catcher Was A Spy is bulking up its cast. News arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that Guy Pearce (The Hurt Locker) has signed on to co-star.





Ben Lewin (The Sessions) is directing a script written by Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan). Here, he adapts Nicholas Dawidoff's 1994 non-fiction bestseller about Moe Berg, an accomplished college graduate who spoke nine languages and spent 15 years as a player on baseball teams including the Chicago White Sox. What his teammates didn't know was that his sports career was a cover for his life as a top secret spy for America's pre-CIA intelligence agency the OSS, and he helped America win the arms race against Germany.

Rudd is on as Berg, while Pearce's role has yet to be revealed – though there is a chance he might be one of Rudd's colleagues. Or we could see him as his OSS handler.

Pearce has recently worked on TV mini-series When We Rise and is set to cameo as Peter Weyland in  Ridley Scott's Prometheus (2012) follow-up Alien: Covenant, due in cinemas 19 May. There is no word yet on when The Catcher Was A Spy will be released.

Billie Piper and Samantha Morton join Two For Joy

Dramas about family issues often tackle complex, difficult subjects. And Two For Joy appears set to join their ranks. Now news arrive via Screen International that Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful) and Samantha Morton (Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them) are attached to star in the film.





Tom Beard, who has come up through photography and music videos, is making his feature writing and directorial debut with the film, which will chart the challenging relationship between a teenage daughter, her bed-ridden mother (Samantha Morton) and her wayward younger brother. Screen International's story doesn't mention what role Piper will play.

"Two For Joy encompasses my professional development over the last six years. In that time I have worked closely with young people who have been through the care system with the drama therapy charity The Big House," says Beard. "This has given me a unique perspective on issues affecting them, issues that I hope to offer up an unbiased and profound representation of in this film." The film has Sadie Frost, Emma Comley and Andrew Green (Set The Thames On Fire) on board to produce via their Blonde To Black Pictures company, and should be shooting this summer.

Piper can currently be seen in London based noir City Of Tiny Lights, while Morton is part of the voice cast for animated fantasy Magik, due next year.

Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn set to star in police thriller Dragged Across Concrete

As police policy and incidents of brutality continue to be hot topics, particularly in the US, news arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that Bone Tomahawk (2015) director S. Craig Zahler is using the subject matter to fuel a new thriller, with Mel Gibson and his Hacksaw Ridge cast member Vince Vaughn set reunite for Dragged Across Concrete.





Craig Zahler – who recently worked with Vaughn on Brawl In Cell Block 99 – is in the director's chair, and wrote the script. The story finds two police officers (Gibson as the old timer and Vaughn as his volatile younger partner) who are suspended when a video of their overly violent tactics is plastered across the internet and on news channels.

With their income suspended and funds running low, they double down on the bad behaviour and head for the criminal underworld. But there, they find far more than they wanted...

Vaughn has recently worked on Roland Joffé's (The Mission) The Forgiven, while Gibson has been shooting The Professor And The Madman.

Leonardo DiCaprio set for crime thriller The Black Hand

A man who seemingly never found a book he didn't want to adapt, Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) is attached to star in yet another movie drawn from a tome. News arrives via Deadline that he is set to star and produce crime thriller The Black Hand.





Stephan Talty's book chronicles the real life story of Joe Petrosino, a driven New York cop who made it his life's mission to go after the dangerous gang spreading a kidnapping ring from Italy to America in the late 1890s.

Known as The Black Hand, the gang were ruthless and inspired fear among the local Italian immigrant population, but Petrosino won the citizens' trust and created a network of informers. He sent many of the gang back to Italy or locked them up, but was finally lured to his death, leaving behind a wife and children.

DiCaprio is working with The Gotham Group and Paramount Pictures to bring the story to the screen, and he is currently on the hunt for a writer to do Petrosino's life justice.

Denis Villeneuve confirmed as director of Dune remake

In was announced back in November that Legendary Entertainment – the studio Pacific Rim (2013) and Godzilla (2014) – had snapped up the rights to Dune, Frank Herbert's sprawling, complex series of science fiction novels. Not long after that, we heard rumblings that they wanted French Canadian wunderkind Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) to direct the new film. Now it looks as though it is official.





Frank's son Brian Herbert tweeted recently that Legendary "has signed the very talented Denis Villeneuve to direct the exciting new DUNE series film project". Intriguingly, the tweet suggests a franchise is planned rather than a single film – an ambitious scheme for ambitious material.


Much like the rise of the Atreides, Dune's cinematic history is legendarily chaotic. It languished in development limbo for most of the 1970s. Alejandro Jodorosky (El Topo) tried and failed to produce it, though his aborted efforts became a superb documentary in its own right. David Lynch eventually directed – and quickly disowned – the first completed adaptation in 1984, which starred Kyle MacLachlan, Max Von Sydow, and Sting.

Paramount Pictures were trying to get a new Dune off the ground for years, with names like Peter Berg (Lone Survivor) and Pierre Morel (Taken) attached to direct before moving on again. Paramount's Dune rights lapsed back in 2011, and Legendary Pictures were finally confirmed as the new rights owners late last year.

The curse of Dune could yet topple Villeneuve's efforts. But with the director shepherding another beloved science fiction project, Blade Runner 2049, into cinemas this year, we would wager he is certainly a safe pair of hands – and with a pedigree that includes bold, challenging, grown-up material like Sicario (2015) and Arrival (2016), this could be finally the adaptation that Herbert deserves. We will keep our ears close to the sand on this one.

New one sheet for Ghost In The Shell arrive online

Paramount Pictures have recently released a stunning new one sheet for Rupert Sanders' (Snow White And The Huntsman) Ghost In The Shell.





Adapted from Masamune Shirow's original 1989 manga, Ghost In The Shell sees Scarlett Johansson (Lucy) as a special ops cyborg at the head of an elite task force known as Section 9. The team, working for Hanka Robotics, is in charge of stopping dangerous criminals and extremists, and their prime target is Kuze (Michael Pitt), a terrorist dedicated to wiping out all of Hanka's cyber technology.

Johansson's Lucy (2014) co-star Pilou Asbæk is aboard to play Batou, the second best fighter in the section and her trusted lieutenant, with Juliette Binoche (Cosmopolis), 'Beat' Takeshi Kitano (The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi), Michael Pitt (Seven Psychopaths) and Kaori Momoi (Memoirs Of A Geisha) also appearing. The members of Section 9 are played by Chin Han (The Dark knight), Danusia Samal (Tyrant), Lasarus Ratuere (The Mule), Yutaka Izumihara (Unbroken) and Tuwanda Manyimo (The Rover).

With a script by Jonathan Herman (Straight Outta Compton), Ghost In The Shell is out in cinemas now. For more on Ghost In The Shell, check out our Ghost In The Shell crash course guide.

New one sheet for The Fate Of The Furious arrives online

Universal Pictures have just released their latest one sheet for F. Gary Gray's (Straight Outta Compton) The Fate Of The Furious.





Going by the much less unusual title Fast & Furious 8 here in the UK, the eighth movie finds the crew seemingly in a relaxed place. Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) are on their honeymoon, and the rest of the crew are enjoying a chaos free existence. But that is before a mysterious woman known as Cipher (Charlize Theron) somehow entices Dom back into a world of crime – and has him shockingly betray the others. And there are also struggles ahead for Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), who finds himself behind bars with Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw...

Soon, the team is splintering and facing trials that will test them like never before. And these are people who have driven cars out of planes and between skyscrapers...

Hopping between Cuba, New York and the icy plains near the arctic Barents Sea, the race is on to stop an anarchist and somehow bring home the man who made them into an unlikely family.

F. Gary Gray is in the director's chair with Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious 6) once again on script duties as the stunt team do ever madder things with assorted vehicles.

With franchise regulars Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Nathalie Emmanuel and Kurt Russell all returning, alongside new recruits Scott Eastwood (Fury), Kristofer Hivju (Game Of Thrones) and Helen Mirren (The Queen), Fate Of The Furious is out in cinemas now.

Creating Star Wars: George Lucas in his own words

On the first day of this years Star Wars Celebration, held in Orlando, Florida, George Lucas took to the stage. There he was greeted by thundrous applause and the image of thousands of lightsabers lighting up among the crowd, beautifully encapsulating the impact he has had on millions of fans around the world.





He was interviewed by Warwick Davis, who had been cast – at the age of just eleven – as the Ewok Wicket in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return Of The Jedi (1983). The first question on Davis' mind was the original conception of Star Wars, and what follows is Lucas' own reflection of what motivated him to create the concept in the first place.

"There was a moment [of creation], but it was like an idea, and the idea was I would like to make an action movie which is more like a Saturday matinee serial that I enjoyed as a kid, but imbue it with mythological psychological motifs, because we don't have any of those today. And so I said, 'Well, I want to take these two things and put them together.'

A few years later I ended up making a deal with United Artists. They said 'What other movies do you have?' I was making a deal for American Graffiti (1973); I said 'I have this sort of space opera thing.' They said, 'Okay, we'll do a deal for that.' The one thing you've got to learn about studios is that if you get your break and you say, 'I've got a script,' they'll say, 'We'll do that, but we want to own you. We want to do all the films you'll ever make in the world.' And you say, 'Well, that's fantastic,' until you get to the next level, and suddenly you realize you've signed away your life.

[But] I was mainly thinking about American Graffiti, that was the movie I was making. Then, what really happened was after American Graffiti, the studio considered it to be so bad they wouldn't release it. So, I was out of a job. I'd made one movie – THX 1138 (1971), which was a cult favorite, which I liked but nobody else did. And I did this other rock 'n roll film which wasn't even good enough to be released.

There's this other side of all this, which is, I say they want to own you for life. Well, if you have two films that aren't successful, they don't want to see... they don't even have lunch with you... they don't want to do anything. They don't even know who you are. But in American Graffiti, in an effort to get people to get behind it, we had all these screenings and at one of the screenings, the head of 20th Century Fox came – Alan Ladd, Jr. – and he just came up to me afterwards and said, 'I love this movie. I think this is the greatest movie of all time. I want to do your next movie. I don't know what it is, but you're a talented guy and I want to make the movie.'

I said, 'Well, I got this movie... it's sort of a space opera thing we have... I think dogs driving spaceships...' And he said, 'Okay, I'll do it.' And he followed me all the way through, even though the Board Of Directors said, 'What in the world is this?' Right up until the very end. And he fought for it, and he helped me make it, and that's when I began to own the idea.

I was still writing scripts, and any of you that read the books, you know I took an idea and I was looking for a story, or I was looking to make it be something. And so I went through a lot of different versions of it until I finally got to the one... and even when I was shooting in Tunisia, I was still re-writing. The idea was simply to do a high adventure film that I loved when I was a kid with meaningful psychological themes. I don't know what I felt. It was like a brilliant, cockamamie idea.

It's hard for people to realize – and I'm not supposed to say this, and I wasn't supposed to say it then – but it's a film for twelve year olds. It was designed to be a film, like, mythology. This is what we stand for; you're about to enter the real world. You're twelve-years-old, you're going to go on into the big world; you're moving away from your parents being the center focus; you're probably scared; you don't know what's going to happen; and here's a little idea of some of the things you kids should pay attention to.

Friendships, honesty, and trust, and doing the right thing; living on the light side; avoiding the dark side. Those are things that it was meant to do, and obviously, the real thrill was when I'd see some of those little fans. When we were in Spain shooting Padme's palace, there were ten thousand people right there, watching. They were all little, tiny kids. They were reaching through this set; it was a metal house... it was like the White House; it was a natural landmark, that palace. And they were all linked, their hands are – even little, tiny ones. They had no idea who I was, but all they wanted to do was touch my hand. And I said, 'You know, this is what I did it for. Everything... none of it makes any difference except this...'

In the real world, the critics... certain fan things... they're not very kind. But when you see all these little kids... when you see the look on their faces, what it means to them, it forgives everything."

New one sheets for The Void arrive online

Signature Entertainment have just released a new batch of one sheets for Steven Kostanski and Jeremy Gillespie's The Void.










"There is a hell. This is worse." So reads the delightfully pithy tagline for The Void, a mysterious indie horror with apparent lashings of science fiction and heavy dollops of practical effects gore.

The Void comes from writing and directing team Steven Kostanski and and Jeremy Gillespie, veterans of design and special effects in high profile productions like Pacific Rim (2013), RoboCop (2014) and the Hannibal TV series, now branching out on their own path.

The pair are "committed to introducing audiences to a unique horror-mythology" with The Void, which they claim will "combine the aesthetic attitude of modern horror cinema as it emerged in the 1970s with the splatter and sophisticated practical special effects that ruled the creature features of the 1980s and early '90s." It has already generated solid buzz in horror circles, with comparisons made to John Carpenter (The Thing). There can be no higher praise, really.

The Void is out in cinemas now.

New character one sheets for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales arrive online

Walt Disney Pictures have just released their latest one sheet for Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning's (Kon-Tiki) Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

















The fifth and latest Pirates Of The Caribbean film has undergone something of a subtitle change for UK audiences – what is called Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales elsewhere is now known as Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge here.

We suppose the new title makes sense, focusing as it does on Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), a ghostly former cohort of Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow. Freshly escaped from the Devil's Triangle, Salazar and his spectral crew are killing all the living pirates, and Jack is their primary target.

Jack's only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong sailor in the Royal Navy. The teaser features no Jack, but instead finds Bardem's ghostly, but surprisingly polite sort demanding that Henry finds Jack for him.

Kon-Tiki's (2012) Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning are at the helm for this one, which Walt Disney Pictures will be hoping can keep the successful money tsunami going and generate some better reviews than the last outing.

We will find out if that is the case when Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge docks into UK cinemas on 26 May.

New one sheet for Kong: Skull Island arrives online

Warner Bros have recently released their latest one sheet for Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings Of Summer) Kong: Skull Island.





Kong: Skull Island finds a group of explorers – including Tom Hiddleston (Thor: The Dark World), Brie Larson (The Spectacular Now), Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton), Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained), John Goodman (Argo) and John C. Reilly (Savages) – heading to the mysterious, misty island and encountering the titular giant ape.

With a script that has seen work by Max Borenstein (Godzilla), John Gatins (Real Steel), Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler) and Derek Connolly (Jurassic World), Kong: Skull Island will arrive in cinemas 10 March.

New one sheet for Alien: Covenant arrives online

20th Century Fox have just released their latest one sheet for Ridley Scott's Prometheus (2012) follow-up Alien: Covenant.





Alien: Covenant finds director Ridley Scott heading back to the Alien universe after Prometheus, and following a colony ship called the Covenant headed for a remote planet, a place that the crew initially thinks is an uncharted paradise but turns out to be dark and full of terrors. And the only inhabitant is synthetic life form David (Michael Fassbender), who claims to be the lone survivor of the Prometheus mission.

Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice), Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight), Amy Seimetz (You're Next), Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills), Billy Crudup (Watchmen) and Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down) make up the ship's crew, and it appears we will catch up with Noomi Rapace's Dr. Elizabeth Shaw. Plus we will be getting a double dose of Fassbender, as he is also playing another synthetic, this one named Walter.

Alien: Covenant, which was originally scheduled for 4 August, now seems scheduled for 19 May, which should be day and date both here and in the US.

StudioCanal just recently released a new batch of character one sheets for Ben Wheatley's (Sightseers) Free Fire.
































Free Fire is set in Boston in 1978.
