Opening this weekend in theaters and on VOD is director Peter Howitt’s drama, Reasonable Doubt. Per the official synopsis, “When up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden (Dominic Cooper) commits a fatal hit-and-run, he feels compelled to throw the case against the accused criminal (Samuel L. Jackson) who was found with the body and blamed for the crime. Following the trial, Mitch’s worst fears come true when he realizes that he acquitted a guilty man, and he soon finds himself on the hunt for the killer before more victims pile up.” The film also stars Gloria Reuben.
Last week I landed an exclusive interview with Dominic Cooper. During our wide ranging conversation we talked about how he got involved with the film, how the script changed during production, working with Samuel L. Jackson, just how cold it was filming in Winnipeg, and more. In addition, we also talked about his work in The Devil’s Double, getting to play Howard Stark in the Marvel universe, how he still hasn’t seen the Agent Carter one-shot, whether he would consider reprising the role if Agent Carter became a series, his Marvel contract, Dracula Untold, Fleming, Duncan Jones’ Warcraft, and more. Hit the jump for what he has to say.
Following a rather lengthy development period, the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally off and running. The adaptation of the sultry E.L. James novel was thrown a curveball when Charlie Hunnam abruptly dropped out of the male lead role, leaving director Sam Taylor-Johnson scrambling to find a replacement with an August 2014 release date looming. The Fall actor Jamie Dornan was eventually cast as Hunnam’s replacement opposite Dakota Johnson (Ben & Kate), but now Universal has understandably pushed the film’s release date back a few months. Instead of going head-to-head with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014, Fifty Shades of Grey will steam up movie theater screens on February 13, 2015. Happy Valentine’s Day!
In anticipation of production beginning very soon, the first images of Dornan and Johnson in character as the book’s sex-adventurous duo has been revealed on the latest cover of EW. Hit the jump to take a look and for release date news for the James Brown biopic Get on Up and the genre redo Dracula Untold.
Less than a day after Universal announced the title and release date for Jurassic World, the studio announced that Dracula: Year Zero has been retitled Dracula Untold. Director Gary Shore’s origin story stars Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6) in the title role of the man who would go on to become the infamous monster. The film is currently in production in Belfast.
Also starring Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Zach McGowan, Samantha Barks, Thor Kristjansson and Art Parkinson, Dracula Untold opens October 3, 2014.
