Filming on Justin Kurzel‘s Macbeth is currently underway, and the first two images have been released.  The adaptation of Shakespeare’s play stars Michael Fassbender as the titular Scottish king with Marion Cotillard playing Lady Macbeth.  In an interview with the Daily Mail, Fassbender says all the cast speaks with Scottish accents except for Cotillard.  “We felt it would be unreasonable for her to put on a Scottish accent,” says Fassbender.  “It would not be unreasonable to presume that her character spent time in the French court.”  I’m willing to allow for that assumption when there’s a great actress like Cotillard in such a juicy role.

Hit the jump to check out the Macbeth images and to learn more about Kurzel and Fassbender’s take on the material.  The film also stars Paddy Considine, David Thewlis, Sean Harris, Jack Reynor and Elizabeth DebickiMacbeth opens in the U.K. in early 2015.

Earlier today, we heard that Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut would be premiering at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.  Previously titled How to Catch a Monster, we now have the first image from the re-titled film, Lost River.  The new name for the film apparently derives from its setting, a once idyllic town that’s now descending into a place of despair and dragging the families that live there down with it.  In addition to the first creepy look at the film, we’ve got some new info on the plot from star Iain De Caestecker, who you might know from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Lost River also stars Saoirse Ronan, Christina HendricksBen MendohlsonMatt Smith, Barbara Steele.  Hit the jump to check out the first Lost River image, and for more on the picture.

New Image and Plot Details for Woody Allen’s MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT Starring Emma Stone, Colin Firth, and Marcia Gay Harden

A new image has gone online for Woody Allen‘s upcoming film Magic in the Moonlight.  We previously reported that the movie “is a romantic comedy about an Englishman (Colin Firth) brought in to help unmask a possible swindle.  Personal and professional complications ensue. The film is set in the south of France in the 1920s against a backdrop of wealthy mansions, the Côte d’Azur, jazz joints and fashionable spots for the wealthy of the Jazz Age.”  The latest issue of EW reports that the “possible swindle” involves the Englishman trying “to expose a phony mystic (Emma Stone), only to end up falling for her.”  Furthermore, Marcia Gay Harden will play “Stone’s mother and co-conspirator.”

Allen says he had the idea for “ages” but it only recently clicked when he decided to set it in the south of France in the 1920s rather than the present day.  Allen also said that the reason for him shooting so many of his recent films in Europe is “By sheer accident because I was getting European financing. I’ve wound up being a foreign filmmaker.”  Hit the jump to check out the image.  Magic in the Moonlight opens July 25th.

First Trailer and Images for Tommy Lee Jones’ THE HOMESMAN Starring Jones, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld, and Meryl Streep

The first trailer and images have gone online for Tommy Lee Jones‘ western drama, The Homesman.  The story centers on a claim-jumping rascal (Jones) and a frontierswoman (Hilary Swank) as they escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa and battle the harsh elemental conditions of the prairie.  I loved Jones’ 2005 film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, which played like a modern-day western.  The Homesman looks more like a straight entry into the genre, but also an interesting one.  There appears to be a tricky balance between Jones’ slightly off-kilter character and the serious dangers he and his traveling companions must face.  Nevertheless, it has an outstanding cast, and I assume we’ll be seeing it later this year since it will be released next month in France.  It’s also a safe assumption that it will make its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, so I’m eager to hear the buzz on the picture.

Hit the jump to check out The Homesman trailer and images.  The film also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Meryl Streep, Tim Blake Nelson, James Spader, William Fichtner, and Jesse PlemonsThe Homesman is currently awaiting U.S. distribution.

Two new hi-res images from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have gone online.  In the new live-action adaptation, a city is in the iron grip of Shredder (William Fichtner) and the Foot Clan, and it’s up to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, along with the help of reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), to stop Shredder and save the day.  Both of these images were in the trailer, but they provide a nice close up on Leonardo (voiced by Johnny Knoxville).

First Look at Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson in Alex Garland’s Sci-Fi Thriller EX MACHINA

The first image has arrived from 28 Days Later and Sunshine screenwriter Alex Garland’s directorial debut Ex Machina.  The psychological thriller revolves around a billionaire programmer who invites a young employee to spend a week at his remote estate and to participate in a test involving an artificially intelligent female robot that he invented.  Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson star, and based on this first image it appears that Isaac is playing the inventor.  The actor previously told us that the pic is a “provocative, sci-fi sexual thriller” and described it as “a great three-hander with people torturing each other with their brains, in rooms.”  It’s certainly a fascinating premise, and Garland’s track record as a screenwriter (which also includes Never Let Me Go and Dredd) is great so I’m eager to see how he fares in the director’s chair.

Hit the jump to check out the first Ex Machina image.  The film also stars Alicia Vikander and does not currently have a release date, but this Ex Machina image debut may be a sign that it could pop up on the 2014 Cannes Film Festival schedule that goes up soon.

A new Maps to the Stars image along with the Italian teaser poster has been released.  David Cronenberg‘s upcoming film follows an archetypical Hollywood dynasty including a writer of self-help manuals, his wife who manages the career of their 13-year-old son, and their daughter, who was recently released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania.  The plot also includes Havana, an actress who wants to remake a movie that starred her now-deceased mother.  Mia Wasikowska plays the institutionalized daughter, and the actress is crushing the dead-eyed stare.

Hit the jump to check out the image and the Italian teaser poster.  The film also stars John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, and Sarah Gadon.  While the movie has received an R-rating from the MPAA, it currently doesn’t have a U.S. release date.  Maps to the Stars will likely premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month, and a domestic release date should be announced around then.

One of the films I’m really bummed I missed at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was Marjane Satrapi‘s The Voices.  Per the Sundance synopsis, “This genre-bending tale centers around Jerry Hickfang, a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, Jerry’s evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog lead him down a fantastical path where he ultimately finds salvation.”  In his review, Adam called the film, “joyously, unabashedly out of its mind,” and these images back that opinion up.  Now I want to see this movie even more.

Quicksilver Runs on Walls in New X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Image; Simon Kinberg Reveals How the Character Fits into the Film

A final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past is due to arrive next week, but to hold us over, 20th Century Fox has released a new image that focuses on what has become the most talked-about character from the film: Quicksilver.  Evan Peters plays the fast-moving mutant in what amounts to a small supporting role, but reaction to the character’s look has thus far been less than enthusiastic—it doesn’t help that the first footage of Quicksilver in action came in a Carl’s Jr. commercial.  In this new X-Men: Days of Future Past image, we get a peek at Quicksilver’s abilities as he runs alongside a wall, sporting a Pink Floyd t-shirt and a pair of wind-resistant goggles.

Additionally, screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg recently spoke a bit about how Quicksilver fits into the overall story, teasing whether they will address the character’s true parentage in the film and talking about the dual usage of the character in Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Hit the jump to check out the X-Men: Days of Future Past image and quotes from Kinberg.  The film opens May 23rd.

Paramount Might Be Planning to Release TRANSFORMERS 5 in 2017

transformers-5-logo-slice

The fourth Transformers movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction, isn’t due out until June 27th, but it won’t be the last one in the franchise.  No sequels have officially been announced, but no one at Paramount is going to say, “You know what, guys?  I think the Transformers movies have had a good run here.  Let’s go out on top.  We need to give this franchise the dignity and respect it deserves, let it lay low, and really take the time to develop a good, strong story.”

The studio hasn’t revealed future plans for the series, but we could be seeing the fifth installment in 2017.  According to TFW2005, Hasbro, the company behind the Transformers toys and a partner in the movies, has released promo material with “Q2 2017” alongside a Transformers 5 placeholder logo.  2017 could even be on the late side since there was only a two-year gap between the first three movies (2007, 2009, 2011, respectively).  Why wait three years for more exploding space robots when you could have them in two?  Hit the jump to check out Hasbro’s promo image, which teases a Transformers 5 release date.

New Images from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Provide another Look at Beast and Quicksilver

On our recent “Most-Anticipated” article, X-Men: Days of Future Past landed on all three lists.  While I understand why some people are skeptical, I think all of the right elements are in place for a great superhero movie.  That’s why I don’t mind reporting on X-Men stories (even when it’s those blasted trailer teasers).  Today, two new images from the movie along with a magazine cover have been released online.  The magazine cover (for Premiere) is kind of silly since it looks like Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is about to stab young Xavier (James McAvoy) in the neck.  But it’s not even half as silly as Quicksilver’s (Evan Peters) costume.  I can’t get over how awful that thing looks.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  X-Men: Days of Future Past also stars Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Lucas Till, Omar Sy, Adan Canto, Daniel Cudmore, and Bingbing FanX-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 2D and 3D on May 23rd.
