WARNING: The only way to experience the full effect of Some Velvet Morning, is to walk into the film knowing nothing at all. You have been warned.
After putting colossal productions like Star Trek Into Darkness and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on their resumes, Alice Eve and Stanley Tucci opted to do a complete 180 with Neil LaBute’s Some Velvet Morning. Eve and Tucci are the only two actors in the film, the entire narrative plays out in a single location and in real time, over the course of 83 minutes. Hit the jump for more.
The first official trailer, poster and synopsis for writer-director Neil LaBute’s Some Velvet Morning are now available. The filmmaker behind 1997′s In the Company of Men brings this new drama about a complicated love affair between Fred (Stanley Tucci) and Velvet (Alice Eve) to the screen. Fred arrives on his mistress Velvet’s doorstep after being apart for four years and claims to have finally left his wife, but his affection for Velvet quickly turns into obsession and the dark history of their past is laid bare.
Some Velvet Morning will be available on cable VOD and digital platforms on December 10, with a limited theatrical release starting December 13th. Hit the jump for the film’s trailer, poster and synopsis.
Another casting announcement for you tonight:
- Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) has landed the female lead opposite Chris Evans (Captain America: The First Avenger) in his directorial debut, 1:30 Train. The indie romantic dramedy was written by Oscar-winner Ronald Bass (Rain Man).
- Seann William Scott (Goon) will star opposite Jackie Chan (Chinese Zodiac) in Skiptrace, directed by Sam Fell (ParaNorman) in his live-action debut. Fan Bingbing (X-Men: Days of Future Past) also stars in this action-adventure film.
Hit the jump for more on both pictures.
The first trailer for the crime thriller Cold Comes the Night has landed online, plus the feature has secured distribution. Directed by Tze Chun (Children of Invention), the film stars Alice Eve as a struggling motel owner who is taken hostage, along with her young daughter, by a Russian criminal played by Bryan Cranston. The trailer is worth watching if only to see Cranston putting on a Russian accent, and Eve gets the chance to lead a film of her own. Sony Pictures Worldwide has acquired all domestic and international rights to the film, though a release date has yet to be announced. We also don’t know if this will be getting a significant theatrical release, or if SPWA will opt for VOD.

With J.J. Abrams Star Trek Into Darkness now playing around the world, we recently landed an exclusive phone interview with Alice Eve. During the interview, she talked about making the sequel, how things changed on set, who was the one who broke the most while filming, her reaction to reading the script for the first time, deleted scenes, and a lot more. She also talked about working with Bryan Cranston on Cold Comes the Night. Hit the jump for what she had to say.
There are those who boldly go where none have gone before on movie screens and those who do it in real life; you can chat with both during a Google+ Hangout with the cast and crew of Star Trek Into Darkness, plus real astronauts from NASA. Director J.J. Abrams, writer Damon Lindelof and stars Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho will join Chris Cassidy, who is currently on the International Space Station, and Earth-bound astronauts Michael Fincke and Kjell Lindgren to talk Star Trek fiction and NASA fact. More importantly, this is your chance to ask questions of both sets of space adventurers! (Just don’t ask what happens when you wring out a washcloth in zero gravity. It’s been done.) Hit the jump for all the details.
Star Trek Into Darkness also stars Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana,Benedict Cumberbatch, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and Bruce Greenwood and opens in IMAX 3D tomorrow, and in both 2D and 3D in traditional theaters on May 16th.
We’re just days away from the US release of J.J. Abrams’ sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, and to mark the occasion Paramount has released a batch of high-resolution images from the film. By now, you probably already know whether you’ll be seeking this one out or not, but if you’re a fan of Trek and just can’t wait another 24 hours before seeing the film, this image gallery should appease you for now. We’ve seen some of these images before, but a few of them are new and all of them are in glorious high-resolution. If you missed Steve’s spoiler-free video blog review of the film, click here.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Benedict Cumberbatch, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Alice Eve, John Cho, and Bruce Greenwood. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in IMAX 3D tomorrow, and in both 2D and 3D in traditional theaters on May 16th.
Paramount Pictures has released six clips from director J.J. Abrams’ upcoming sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. We’ve seen these clips individually before, but now they’re all together in one convenient place. If you missed any of our recent coverage, be sure to watch Steve’s spoiler-free video blog review of the film, the 3D trailer, three new TV spots that unveil an unmasked Klingon, and the final poster for the film.
Hit the jump to watch all the clips. The film stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Alice Eve, and Benedict Cumberbatch. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in IMAX 3D on May 15th and in 2D and 3D in traditional theaters on May 17th.
Paramount Pictures has released a new 3D trailer for director J.J. Abrams’ sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. If you happen to have a pair of red/blue 3D glasses handy, then you’re in luck. If not, well I hope you like slightly blurry images. This trailer is simply the latest theatrical trailer only refashioned in kinda-3D. I say kinda-3D because this is far from the quality 3D you’d see in a theater. Nevertheless, if you happen to have a pair of 3D glasses nearby, go nuts.

The Star Trek Into Darkness marketing blitz rolls on with three more TV spots for the upcoming sequel. A couple of the TV spots hammer home the same plot points we’ve seen before: Kirk (Chris Pine) needs to be responsible, the villain “John Harrison” (Benedict Cumberbatch) is really sinister, etc. But the third spot is an interesting evaluation of Uhura (Zoe Saldana) by Harrison. We saw this kind of evaluation before with Spock (Zachary Quinto), but the evaluation of Uhura sneaks in a couple frames of an unmasked Klingon. I’m not exactly sure why they needed masks in the first place, but as far as the design goes, it’s fairly subdued. However, in the TV series, the Klingons (from TNG onwards, which is when they got their distinctive foreheads) have different craniums. They have ridges, but the ridges vary from Klingon to Klingon, so we don’t know if that will be the case with Abrams’ film or if he’s gone for a uniform design.
Hit the jump to check out the TV spots and first image of an unmasked Klingon. The film also stars Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, and Alice Eve. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in IMAX 3D on May 15th and in 3D and 2D on May 17th.
Okay, so we just featured these same movies in a poster article yesterday, but the posters are new … I promise!
- Star Trek Into Darkness – The last character poster from J.J. Abrams’ sequel is for Dr. Carol Marcus (Alice Eve). Star Trek Into Darkness opens May 17th.
- Red 2 – Today’s poster features Mary-Louise Parker. The Dean Parisot-directed sequel stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins and Byung-hun Lee. Red 2 opens July 19th.
- CBGB – Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters is featured on today’s poster. Chronicling the quest of Hilly Kristal (Alan Rickman) to turn a small club into the legendary punk venue, CBGB also stars Ashley Greene, Malin Akerman, Johnny Galecki, Rupert Grint, and Stana Katic.
Hit the jump for the posters and synopses.
Some new U.K. character posters for J.J. Abrams’ upcoming sequel Star Trek Into Darkness have made their way online. We previously saw a few domestic character posters for Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and Benedict Cumberbatch, but in this grouping we see Alice Eve, John Cho, and Karl Urban get their own one-sheets alongside new posters for the aforementioned actors. The lack of Anton Yelchin’s Chekov in most of the marketing, though, is starting to become glaring, and I’m beginning to wonder about his character’s fate. Also, where’s Scotty’s poster? Surely Simon Pegg deserves a one-sheet of his own, especially as part of the U.K.’s marketing materials.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in the U.K. on May 9th, in IMAX 3D in the U.S. on May 15th, and in traditional U.S. theaters on May 17th.
A few minutes before the Star Trek Into Darkness cast hit the CinemaCon stage in Las Vegas, I landed a video interview with Alice Eve on the red carpet. While J.J. Abrams and Paramount have slowly been releasing more images and footage from the Star Trek sequel (click here to watch the new trailer), the cast is still very careful about saying anything specific about the anxiously awaited sequel. Knowing this before the interview started, I made sure to only ask questions she could answer like what it was like to film the bridge sequences first, working with the IMAX cameras, where she’ll be traveling to promote the film, what it means to be part of the Star Trek franchise, and you might even see a bit of singing with Zachary Quinto. Hit the jump to watch.
Paramount has released 24 hi-res images from Star Trek Into Darkness. These images come from Paramount’s press site, and going through them one-by-one, I noticed something strange: there’s no Chekov (Anton Yelchin). Perhaps it’s just an oversight on the studio’s part, but every other member of the Enterprise crew is in at least one photo. This could be nothing, but if Abrams were to kill off a character, he could possibly get away with Chekov (as opposed to a more popular character like Bones or Scotty).
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Peter Weller, and Alice Eve. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in IMAX 3D on May 15th, and 3D and 2D on May 17th.
Earlier today, Paramount released an exciting new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, and because they’re all about the secrets, they put in a devious little bit of added marketing into one of the shots. In the UK and Australian versions of the trailer, there’s a bit.ly link to the new poster. You may have missed it because it’s tiny, in the background, and also behind a scantily clad Alice Eve. So remember: if someone walks in on you ogling a freeze-frame of some starlet in her underwear, just reply, “I was only looking for a secret URL! And my pants are off because it’s warm in here!”
