Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures have released a fantastic new trailer for The Matrix Trilogy and Cloud Atlas writers/directors Lana and Andy Wachowski’s original sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending.  The story follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who scrubs toilets for a living, but then discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe.  Channing Tatum plays an ex-military half-werewolf half-albino hunter tasked with tracking her down.  One thing is abundantly clear from this new trailer: the scope of Jupiter Ascending is positively epic.  The Wachowski siblings appear to have gone all-out with this sci-fi pic, and the result is an ambitious, colorful, and massive world that looks like a whole lot of fun.  Eddie Redmayne feels almost Shakespearean as the villain, and I’m incredibly impressed by just how big and other-worldly this thing is.

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  The film also stars Sean BeanDouglas BoothTuppence MiddletonJames D’ArcyTim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae.  Jupiter Ascending opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on July 18th.

Remember when there was a rumor that The Fantastic Four’s version of Doctor Doom (aka Victor von Doom) might be a woman?  Well, if a new casting shortlist is to be believed, it looks like that rumor doesn’t hold water.  The villainous role has apparently been narrowed down to these four blokes: Sam Riley (On the Road), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), or Domhnall Gleeson (About Time).  Whoever ends up with the part, it’s going to be a 30-something actor from the U.K. who goes up against Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell in the title roles.  Hit the jump for more.

First Trailer for The Wachowski Siblings’ JUPITER ASCENDING Starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s upcoming sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending.  The film follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who has to scrub toilets for a living, but then discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe.  Channing Tatum co-stars as a genetically engineered ex-military hunter who must track her down.  Judging from this trailer, one thing is abundantly clear about Jupiter Ascending: this is the Wachowskis going 100%, full-blown sci-fi.  Coming off the philosophical (and excellent) Cloud Atlas, this film appears to be something a bit more in the vein of The Matrix for the Wachowskis in that it appears to be lighter and a bit more adventurous in spirit.  The world building on display in this trailer is nuts, and though the footage is indeed very out-there, I have a feeling once audiences settle in to the JA universe it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Doona BaeJupiter Ascending opens in 3D on July 25, 2014.

We’re only a short week away from the 85th Academy Awards, and with the close of Oscar season approaching, we’d thought this would be a nice opportunity to take a look back at how some of the races have played out, chronicling the ebbs and flows of the past 12 months or so that got us to where we are today.  We’re kicking things off with one of the more open categories: Best Supporting Actor.

One important thing to keep in mind when looking at the Oscars is that the race is incredibly fluid.  A film could be the clear frontrunner in a category one week, then might stumble to second or even third place in the ensuing weeks.  With this series of articles, we’ll be looking at exactly how much each race has changed, starting with Best Supporting Actor.  Hit the jump to read on.

Working for 10 years in film and theater, British actor Eddie Redmayne is currently receiving attention and acclaim for his work as Marius in the Academy Award-nominated musical Les Misérables.  Honored for that performance, he was presented with a Virtuosos Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF), and Collider was there to cover and attend the event.

During the Q&A, the actor talked about what his crazy audition process was like, the ideas he had for his vocal performance, the thing he was most nervous about pulling off, working with co-stars Samantha Barks and Amanda Seyfried, who he’s learned the most from on set, and how the reaction they’ve gotten for the film is the greatest gift that he could ask for.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Opening today is director Tom Hooper’s fantastic adaptation of Les Miserables.  Loaded with great performances and top notch filmmaking, Les Mis is absolutely a contender for all the year end awards and it would shock me if Anne Hathaway doesn’t win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her incredible work as Fantine.  Her one take rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” was incredible and it’s the type of performance that’s unforgettable.  For more on the film, here are five clips and all our previous coverage.

At the recent NYC press day for the film I did an exclusive interview with Eddie Redmayne (Marius).  He talked about how he got the role, what it was like to go to school in Cambridge, the way he prefers to work, how he did his big song twenty-three times and it was the last take that got used in the movie, deleted scenes, future projects, and more.  In addition, we talked about what it’s like being up for big roles in Marvel movies and his thoughts on the superhero genre.  Hit the jump to either listen to the audio or read the transcript.

LES MISÉRABLES Review

by     Posted 1 year, 121 days ago

les-miserables-slice

Les Misérables is a musical of big emotions.  Characters are brought to their lowest, experience love at first sight, sacrifice their lives for revolution, spend decades in pursuit of justice, and believe their quests are ordained by God.  The songs and their context can come off as cheesy, but the non-stop music and story wrap the production in grandeur that sweep the audience into a captivating world.  Paired with terrific performances, the film adaptation of Les Misérables is almost unstoppable.  But director Tom Hooper throws up a barrier as he constantly blocks out the tremendous production values with far too many close-ups and editing that chases the music rather than guides it.  We still hear the people sing, but their voices should ring louder.

Though he ultimately didn’t land the Harry Osborn role in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it appears that burgeoning newcomer Eddie Redmayne  will be just fine.  The actor was in the running for the pivotal role in the Spider-Man sequel that eventually went to Dane DeHaan, but now the Les Miserables star has landed an equally (if not more) exciting role: a part opposite Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in writers/directors Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski’s sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending.  Hit the jump for more.

Casting is currently underway on Sony’s fast-moving sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and it appears that producers are changing course in filling the integral role of Harry Osborn.  Marc Webb is returning to direct with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone back as the film’s leads, but the follow-up is poised to include a tantalizing group of newcomers that should ring familiar to fans of the comics.  Shailene Woodley is set to play eventual love interest Mary Jane in what may amount to a larger role in the third film, and negotiations are underway to nail down Jamie Foxx as the film’s villain Electro.

We recently heard that Dane DeHaan (Chronicle), Alden Ehrenreich (Beautiful Creatures) and Brady Corbet (Melancholia) were under consideration for the role of Harry Obsorn, but now it appears that Sony is looking for a different type of actor to take on the part.  Hit the jump for more.
