A comedy about...love?
There are plenty of jokes and humorous situations in the red band trailer for the upcoming comedy 3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom, and there's also a lot of people yelling at each other and partial nudity. What there isn't is a clear idea of what the plotline is, so we'll stick with the description cast member Lizzy Caplan gave The Playlist last year.
some trailers more naked than others
It's about a guy whose life has been ruined by a YouTube video that has gone viral and so he's been hiding out and he gets brought back into civilization — because he's been living in the middle nowhere — by his really manipulative, horrible brother. And everybody in his life is sort of terrible [and it's about] how he deals with that.

The family that robs together doesn't always stay together.
Germany has been the backdrop of most of Award-winning Austrian filmmaker Stefan Ruzowitzy's (The Counterfeiters) movies to date, but the cold climes of rural Michigan fill the camera lens in his latest movie, the crime drama Deadfall (formerly Kin and Blackbird). Conceived by novice screenwriter Zach Dean while a passenger aboard a "seemingly doomed flight" from Burbank to New York, Deadfall is described as a heist movie that also "touches on the themes of love and loyalty."
The movie stars Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde as Addison and Liza, siblings who successfully rob a casino only to suffer a car accident that leaves their get-away driver and a state trooper dead. Forced to split up and head for the Canadian border during a near whiteout blizzard, the pair reunite at the home of a retired sheriff (Kris Kristofferson), his wife (Sissy Spacek), and their son (Charlie Hunnam), an ex-boxer who happened to pick up Liza along the side of the road. The movie received mixed reviews after debuting at the Tribeca Film Festival, but the new trailer that was just released makes a case for Deadfall being a sleeper hit. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.17.12 by BrentJS
If you've seen Pan's Labyrinth or either of the Hellboy movies, then you know that director Guillermo del Toro prefers to use costumes, makeup, and practical effects whenever possible, rather than computer-generated imagery. Del Toro's predilection for doing things "in-camera" continues in the production of his latest movie, Pacific Rim. In the new issue of Total Film Magazine, del Toro revealed that "several blocks of Hong Kong" were created only to be destroyed during the conflict between the titanic "Kaiju" monsters that threaten to wipe out civilization as we know it and the enormous piloted robots called "Jaegers" that serve as the last line of defense for the human race. what did del toro say? >> Posted 06.14.12 by BrentJS
Earlier this month, we reported that Guillermo del Toro was interested in casting Luther star Idris Elba as the lead in his alien doomsday flick Pacific Rim. Today, Deadline reports that the casting has been confirmed. Son of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam will co-star. Elba has been cast in the role of Sensi, one of the human collective defending the Earth from alien attacks. The role was originally meant for Tom Cruise, who departed the project for unknown reasons. Who does that leave for Django? >> Posted 06.22.11 by reelz
Idris Elba is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood. An accomplished actor in his native Britain before gaining wider recognition for the role of Russell "Stringer" Bell in The Wire TV series, Elba impressed in a succession of supporting roles in movies like 28 Weeks Later, American Gangster, RocknRolla, and The Losers. Those movies earned him a spot in two big-budget movies based on Marvel superheroes, Thor, which is still in theaters, and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, which is currently in post-production.
Elba is currently filming Prometheus, acclaimed director Ridley Scott's highly anticipated return to the Alien franchise that he helped launch, and there's talk that he is in contention with Will Smith for the lead role in Quentin Tarantino's new Western, Django Unchained. Now, TheWrap has reported that Legendary Pictures is eyeing Elba to star opposite Charlie Hunnam in Guillermo del Toro's next movie as a director, Pacific Rim. more about Pacific Rim >> Posted 06.07.11 by BrentJS
Charlie Hunnam is most well-known for his work as Jackson "Jax" Teller on the FX Network TV series Sons of Anarchy, but, at one point, screentested for the title role in Marvel Studios' Thor. While Hunnam lost that role to Chris Hemsworth, the British actor is looking to land his first major lead role in director Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim.
Deadline reports that Hunnam is negotiating to star in the movie, which will be del Toro's first since dropping out as director of the The Hobbit and having his pet project, an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness canceled after Universal balked at the movie's budget and R-rating. More details on Pacific Rim >> Posted 05.10.11 by Ryan
Summit Entertainment, the company behind the Twilight Saga, is looking to stay in the vampire business — and has enlisted Brad Pitt and his Plan B production company to help.
According to THR, Pitt will produce Vlad, a script about the younger Dracula when he was a Prince known as Vlad the Impaler, written by Sons of Anarchy actor (who also screen tested for the lead role in Thor) Charlie Hunnam. The movie has been in development for a little while, and Summit is in negotiations to hire music video director Anthony Mandler, whose visual sense is drawing comparisons to 300 director Zack Snyder.

Kenneth Branagh offered an update on his comic adaptation to IGN:
Well, I'm working currently on Thor for Marvel and we're planning that one. We're having a great time at the moment. We're in intense pre-production. I shoot Thor in January of next year.
All this extra time allows Branagh to take his time in casting the Thor role. With Alexander Skarsgård seemingly out of the running, and Charlie Hunnam screen testing, Branagh is quick to mention that Tom Hiddleston is still a possibility:
Tom Hiddleston is a great actor and he, amongst a number of others, hasbeen part of the group we've spoken to and all that's still a work inprogress.
With Thor not shooting until next year, Branagh has plenty of time to make up his mind. Posted 05.03.09 by Ryan
There's good reason for Charlie Hunnam to be testing for the role of Thor, because it looks like Alexander Skarsgård is out of the running. While Skarsgård has met with director Kenneth Branagh, he doesn't feel confident about the part, responding to questions about his casting by saying, "No, I don't think so, I haven't gotten the call, so..."
Skarsgard will just have to content himself with his work on HBO's True Blood. Posted 04.24.09 by Ryan
