Rumor: Christoph Waltz Could Play a Villain In JAMES BOND 24

I totally lost track of this but man that December start date for James Bond 24 is coming up quick. As a fan of Skyfall, I’m stoked that Sam Mendes is coming back, since that marked the first time in a long time that Mendes had made a film with any replay value for me.  The last we’d heard on this project Lea Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) had signed on to play the “femme fatale” with Dave Bautista in place to play a henchman character in the vein of the iconic “Jaws.” But there was still no one to really fill out the “mastermind” role.

Now it appears as though Christoph Waltz will be in the film as well (having just fallen out of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales).  While this is still technically a rumor, it comes from a source who is often right about these matters.  And the smart speculation would have him playing an adversary to Daniel Craig‘s Bond.  Hit the jump for more on Christoph Waltz in James Bond 24. The film also stars Ralph FiennesBen Whishaw and Naomie Harris  and will open on November 6, 2015.

We just saw Nick (Jason Bateman) unknowingly step into a sex addiction group therapy session and the guys go at it with Kevin Spacey’s Dave Harken in prison, but now it’s time for seven additional Horrible Bosses 2 clips.  They’re not all big winners, but the “kidnaping” gag from the film’s trailers works wells and the chemistry between Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis still packs the power to entertain and put a smile on your face.  This new batch of clips also includes some material with Jamie Foxx as Nick, Dale and Kurt’s personal murder consultant Dean “Motherf*cker” Jones and Christoph Waltz as Burt Hanson, the investor who steals Nick, Dale and Kurt’s big idea, but it’s Chris Pine as Burt’s rather unhinged son, Rex, who looks to be one of the more promising supporting characters on the roster.

Hit the jump to check out all nine Horrible Bosses 2 clips for yourself.  The Sean Anders-directed film is set to arrive in theaters on November 26th and also stars Jennifer Aniston.

New HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 Trailer: Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis Are Entrepreneurs

Warner Bros. has released a new Horrible Bosses 2 trailer for the upcoming comedy sequel.  Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis reprise their roles from the first film, and this time around they decide to be their own bosses by setting out on their own entrepreneurial venture.  When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) steals their idea, they decide to kidnap his son (Chris Pine) and hold him for ransom.  This trailer isn’t quite as funny as the previous one, but there are still some standout jokes thanks to the main trio.  While comedy follow-ups are incredibly hard to pull off, the chemistry of Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis is fantastically infectious so I’m optimistic here.  Moreover, between this and Stretch, Pine is proving himself to be quite the comedic talent.

Terry Gilliam Talks THE ZERO THEOREM, Working With Christoph Waltz, the End of the Universe, and Armageddonist Republicans

terry-gilliam-interview-the-zero-theorem

Terry Gilliam‘s new film The Zero Theorem touches on a lot of his established aesthetic signposts while exploring new thematic ground with its questions about the universe and how we all wait for permission for the wrong things. The film stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation.  Melanie ThierryTilda Swinton, and David Thewlis also star.

I recently hopped on the phone with Gilliam to talk all things The Zero Theorem, his reaction to the film’s philosophy as well his take on why people do what they do without thinking ahead.  Be sure to check out the trailer and hit the jump for my Terry Gilliam interview.

THE ZERO THEOREM Review

by     Posted 64 days ago

the-zero-theorem-review

The Zero Theorem is director Terry Gilliam-squared.  The sci-fi film features all of his trademarks—unhinged characters, oppressive societies, canted angles and zooms, colorful settings—and then pushes them to a level that would border on self-parody if Gilliam wasn’t already a self-deprecating person.  There’s something fearless inside the Zero Theorem in that the movie tries to wear its brain on its sleeve, which is good because there’s more pontificating than genuine romance.  The movie will inevitably invite comparisons to Gilliam’s masterpiece Brazil, but The Zero Theorem struggles to solve its own problem, namely, turning all of its subtext into text.

BIG EYES Trailer: Tim Burton Made a Real Movie Again with Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz

by     Posted 65 days ago

big-eyes-trailer-amy-adams-christoph-waltz

The Weinstein Company has released the first Big Eyes trailer for director Tim Burton’s upcoming drama.  The film revolves around the lives of artists Margaret (Amy Adams) and Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz).  Walter became famous in the 1950s and 60s for paintings featuring saucer-eyed kids, but it was the shy Margaret who really did the work.  Walter’s fraud eventually led to a divorce and a heated court battle to prove authorship of the paintings.  This looks to be a fantastic return to form for Burton after his flurry of CG-stuffed studio films, and honestly if I didn’t know this was a Tim Burton film going in, I might not have guessed it from this trailer.  The film appears to tackle issues like the commercialization of art and the marginalization of women both at home and in the workplace, and I would not be shocked to see Adams become a major player in this year’s awards season.  Big Eyes just skyrocketed towards the top of my most anticipated list for the rest of the year.

Exclusive Character Posters For THE ZERO THEOREM Introduce the Film’s Characters and their Philosophies

I finally got a chance to see Terry Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem and was mightily impressed by its ability to conjure some of the magic of Gilliam classics like Brazil and Twelve Monkeys (albeit in a far warmer, less brutal manner than the latter film).  So I’m really glad we’re debuting these character posters that don’t just showcase the performers in the film, but the philosophies of the people they are playing.  The movie is all about ideas, a philosophical dialogue.  And these get at that.

The Zero Theorem stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation; Melanie ThierryTilda Swinton, and David Thewlis also star.  The film hits iTunes today, August 19th and limited theaters on September 19th.  Be sure to check out the trailer and of course check out the film afterwards.  Hit the jump for our exclusive character posters from The Zero Theorem!

First BIG EYES Images Released: Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams Face off in Tim Burton’s Drama about Painters Walter and Margaret Keane

The Weinstein Company has released the first two Big Eyes images online.  Tim Burton‘s latest film focuses on the artistic coupling of Margaret (Amy Adams) and Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz).  Walter became famous in the 1950s and 60s for paintings featuring saucer-eyed kids, though it was the shy Margaret who really did the work.  Margaret eventually tired of the misplaced credit, which led to a divorce and a heated court battle to prove authorship of the paintings.  I would love to see Burton take on a worthwhile story again, and this one has the potential to catapult him back to making an interesting movie with real characters as opposed to Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter being weird for 100 minutes.

Wow.  My head must have been buried in the sand because, aside from a few cursory glances at a poster here and there around the net, I had been more or less unfamiliar with the new Terry Gilliam film, The Zero Theorem. Not anymore.  This new U.S. trailer is fantastic. It’s utterly striking and unique and reminds us of what Gilliam is capable of.  I’m so relieved someone gave him some money to play around with again.

The Zero Theorem stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation; Melanie ThierryTilda Swinton, and David Thewlis also star.  The film hits iTunes on August 19th and limited theaters on September 19th.

New Line has released the first trailer for Horrible Bosses 2, directed by Sean Anders (That’s My Boy).  Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis return to start a new business in the sequel.  When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) takes over, “the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son (Chris Pine) and ransom him to regain control of their company.”  I somehow missed the first installment from Seth Gordon back in 2011, but this new trailer makes me want to remedy that ASAP.  It’s also got the best use of “Turn Down for What” since, well, DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s video.

Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey also return in Horrible Bosses 2, scheduled for release on November 26th.  Hit the jump to watch the first Horrible Bosses 2 trailer.

3 New Featurettes for Terry Gilliam’s THE ZERO THEOREM; Plus Go Behind the Scenes of ENEMY Starring Jake Gyllenhaal

by     Posted 277 days ago

zero-theorem-enemy-slice

A few featurettes for two upcoming films have landed online.  Firstly, three new behind-the-scenes videos for director Terry Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem offer a look at the costumes, the main set, and Gilliam’s directorial process.  The pic stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation.  Also starring Melanie Thierry, Tilda Swinton, and David Thewlis, the film opens in the U.K. on March 14th and is currently awaiting a U.S. release date.

Additionally, a new 4-minute featurette for director Denis Villeneuve’s (Prisoners) twisty thriller Enemy has been released online.  The story revolves around a university lecturer (Jake Gyllenhaal) who discovers that he has a double, whom he tracks down and engages, resulting in “a complex and dangerous struggle.”  This new behind-the-scenes video offers a look at how Villeneuve managed to create two Gyllenhaals in the same scene.  Also starring Maline Laurent, the film is currently available on DirecTV and will open in theaters March 14th.

Warner Bros. Sets July 1, 2016 Release Date for David Yates’ TARZAN 3D

by     Posted 284 days ago

tarzan-reboot

Warner Bros. has staked out a July 1, 2016 release date for its big-budget adaptation of Tarzan, in 3D no less.  The film has been in development for over a year and at one point was put on hold due to budget concerns, but it’s been picking up steam once again over the past few months.  David Yates is onboard to direct, making this his first feature since helming the final four Harry Potter films back-to-back, and True Blood actor Alexander Skarsgard is set in the titular role as Tarzan.  Margot Robbie—who shined as the female lead in The Wolf of Wall Street—will make the leap to franchise films playing Jane, and Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz are confirmed to co-star.

Currently, Independence Day 2 is also scheduled to open on that 4th of July weekend in 2016 alongside the Angry Birds movie, but either ID4 or Tarzan will likely shift to another weekend to avoid cannibalizing each other.  With this new date for Tarzan, 2016 is shaping up to be a big year for Warner Bros., as the studio will also launch Batman vs. Superman in May.  Read the full press release for Tarzan after the jump.
