A trio of new theatrical posters have been released for movies of differing genres. For romantic moviegoers, we have the first poster for director Lone Sherfig's (An Education) new movie, One Day. David Nicholls (When Did You Last See Your Father?) wrote the screenplay, which is adapted from his 2009 novel of the same name. The story follows Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess), who meet for the first time the night they both graduate from the University of Edinburgh, and then get together on the anniversary of that meeting every year for twenty years. Romola Garai, Rafe Spall and Ken Stott also star. One Day opens July 8th. two more new posters >> Posted 02.20.11 by BrentJS
Popular entertainment news program Entertainment Tonight recently aired tantalizing sneak peeks at two upcoming movies and those videos can now be viewed online. The first ET exclusive is only a promo advertising a future behind-the-scenes feature on Marvel Studios' next big comic book movie adaptation, Captain America: The First Avenger, but the six-second video offers up a rare look at title actor Chris Evans wearing the iconic star-spangled costume beneath tattered military fatigues with Cap's original, triangle-shaped shield on his back. Eagle-eyed comic veterans will also be able to pick out Neal McDonough sporting the characteristic bowler hat of Howling Commando "Dum Dum" Dugan. more about Captain America, plus the Upside Down exclusive >> Posted 01.03.11 by BrentJS
A new, and most likely final, poster for Watchmen director Zack Snyder's upcoming 3-D flick Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole has been released online. The animated owl movie — from the same studio that made Happy Feet and set for theater release on September 24th — features an impressive cast of Hollywood voices, including Hugo Weaving (The Lord of the Rings), Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Geoffrey Rush (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Helen Mirren (The Queen).
The group of owls on the poster — each with varying degrees of cuteness — stand next to a piece of owl head armor. A fantasy-world landscape looms in the background, in what looks like a cross between Narnia and Middle Earth. But this is not a Hollywood mash-up. Legend of the Guardians is based on the first three books in the Guardians of Ga'hoole series, penned by Kathryn Lasky in 2003. The story follows a young Barn Owl Soren (voiced by 21's Jim Sturgess), who is snatched by evil owls from St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls. Soren eventually escapes to the island of Ga'hoole and joins other owls in the war against the Academy. Posted 08.09.10 by reelz
Zack Snyder is a busy director these days, working on both the fantasy-action movie Sucker Punch and the 3-D animated Guardians of Ga'Hoole, based on the children's novel series written by Kathryn Lasky, simultaneously.
Variety reports that Guardians is lining up an impressive cast of voices, including Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush, Hugo Weaving, and David Wenham. They're leading an equally strong group of supporting voice actors, such as Helen Mirren, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Emilie de Ravin, Ryan Kwanten, Emily Barclay, Miriam Margolyes and JayLaga'aia.
Guardians tells the story of how an owl named Soren (Sturgess), who is entranced with his father's stories about the Guardians of Ga'Hoole, protected owlkind. Once Soren is kidnapped, he gathers together a group to escape and join the Guardians. Posted 11.20.09 by Ryan
When it was announced that Across the Universe director Julie Taymor was developing a Broadway musical based on Spider-Man, many of us dismissed it as some sort of practical joke. When it was revealed that Bono and The Edge from U2 would be writing the music, we dismissed it as a really elaborate practical joke. But the joke's on us, it seems, as Spider-Man: The Musical is increasingly close to becoming a reality. Taymor even recently brought in Universe stars Jim Sturgess and Evan Rachel Wood to workshop an early version of it. At a recent press event for his new card-counting flick 21, Sturgess recounted the experience:
"We just kind of saw it as a fun thing to do for two weeks in New York City, writing songs with Bono and The Edge about Spider-Man. By the end of the two weeks we'd performed an entire structure of what the play is going to be to Marvel Comics and people from Sony and stuff like that. So it's there and Julie's definitely gonna make it. Whether I'll be in it or not, I have no idea."
No word yet on how the musical's story will differ from the Spider-Man movies, but we're hoping Emo Spidey at least gets a cameo. We loved his moves in Spider-Man 3. Posted 03.17.08 by reelz
