Jennifer Garner Surfs the Web in New MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN Images

Judging by the film’s first trailer, Men, Women & Children is going to be a rather striking departure for Up in the Air and Young Adult filmmaker Jason Reitman.  His previous feature, Labor Day, showed that Reitman was in the midst of evolving as a director, but Men, Women & Children looks to be worlds away from his other films, teasing a deeply dark, dramatic, and intense chronicle of living life in the digital age.  Based on the Chad Kulten novel of the same name, the picture revolves around high school students and their parents, and how their relationships, self-image and quality of life are affected by the internet.  A pair of new Men, Women & Children images have been released that feature stars Jennifer Garner and Ansel Elgort, and the photos continue the sober tone that was prevalent in the film’s teaser trailer.  I’m incredibly curious to see what kind of film Reitman has put together here, and I look forward to catching the world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival later this week.

Halloween is just around the corner, which means a new season of The Walking Dead is upon us.  While the show has gone through a number of creative changes behind the scenes, it appears that current showrunner Scott M. Gimple is poised to eclipse original showrunner Frank Darabont’s length of time in that position (assuming he makes it through Season 5 unscathed), as Gimple has held the role since he took over at the beginning of Season 4.  With a new batch of episodes on the horizon, AMC has unveiled a couple of The Walking Dead Season 5 teaser trailers as well as some high-resolution images to tide fans over until the show returns.  I bailed on the series midway through Season 3, but it remains one of the highest rated dramas across all networks and TWD fandom is as intense as ever, so I imagine these new teasers and images will be of interest to many.

Take a look at the new The Walking Dead teaser trailers and images after the jump.  The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on AMC October 12th.

David Fincher is one of my favorite filmmakers working today, and so it’s with great joy that I greet a new batch of behind-the-scenes Gone Girl images that have landed online.  Fincher’s new film is an adaptation of the page-turner novel of the same name by author Gillian Flynn, and revolves around a man (Ben Affleck) who becomes the lead suspect when his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.  Fincher has always been leading the charge when it comes to innovative filmmaking techniques, and one of these new Gone Girl images shows the unique way in which he photographed an underwater scene involving Pike.  Moreover, accompanying the images are some comments from Fincher, Pike, and Affleck about the film, with the latter explaining why he thinks it’s the perfect date movie.

New A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES Images: Liam Neeson and Dan Stevens Are on the Hunt

Universal Pictures has released some new A Walk Among the Tombstones images from director Scott Frank’s (The Lookout) upcoming dark crime thriller.  The film stars Liam Neeson as an alcoholic ex-cop who investigates the kidnapping of a heroin drug lord’s wife, teaming up with a heroin trafficker (Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens) and his brother to hunt down the men responsible for the crime.  While on the surface this could be seen as another cash-in on Neeson’s “badass hunting down bad people” movie genre, I’m highly encouraged by the involvement of Frank.  He penned the scripts for Out of Sight and Minority Report and I was a big fan of his previous directorial effort The Lookout, so it’s with some degree of anticipation that I’m looking forward to this one.   Moreover, Stevens proves in The Guest that he’s more than capable of handling a darker role, so his turn in Tombstones should be quite interesting.

Hit the jump to check out the new A Walk Among the Tombstones images.  The film also stars David Harbour and Boyd Holbrook.  A Walk Among the Tombstones opens in theaters on September 19th.

Paramount Pictures has released the first Selma images from director Ava DuVernay’s upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr. biopic.  David Oyelowo takes on the role of Dr. King in the film, which recounts the epic, dangerous, and terrifying civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama that resulted in President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  It’s a story that’s both inspiring and heartbreaking, as it evokes humanity at its best and worst.  Oyelowo is joined in the cast by Carmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson, Andre Holland, Omar J. Dorsey, Tessa Thompson, Tim Roth, Wendell Pierce, and Colman Domingo.  The film will open in limited release on Christmas Day before expanding nationwide on January 9, 2015.

Theodore Melfi’s feature directorial debut, St. Vincent, is just about two weeks away from making its world premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.  We’ve already got a trailer and a small handful of images, but now there’s three more stills from the film to go along with them.

St. Vincent features Bill Murray as Vincent, Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) and Oliver’s (Jaeden Lieberher) retired neighbor with a drinking problem, bad attitude and no money in his bank account.  When Maggie gets stuck working long hours, she lets Vincent watch Oliver while she’s gone, giving him a chance to make a quick buck.  Hit the jump to check out those new stills to get a sense of what babysitting means to Vincent.  The film also stars Chris O’Dowd and Naomi Watts.  It’s set to screen at TIFF on September 5th and will begin its theatrical run on October 14th.

New ROSEWATER Images: Gael Garcia Bernal Is Blindfolded in Jon Stewart’s Directorial Debut

A couple of new Rosewater images have been released for comedian and The Daily Show host Jon Stewart’s directorial debut as the film’s World Premiere looms closer.  Written and directed by Stewart, the pic stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Kim Bodnia and is an adaptation of BBC journalist Maziar Bahari’s memoir Then They Came for Me.  Bahari, who was born in Tehran, went to Iran in 2009 to interview Mir-Hossein Moussavi, but was arrested by the Revolutionary Guard and then interrogated and beaten for 118 days by a man known only as “Rosewater.”  Stewart had a personal connection to the story, as Bahari’s previous Daily Show appearance was used as “evidence” that he was a spy.  This has been high on my most anticipated list for some time, and I’m extremely eager to see what Stewart has put together when the film screens at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Hit the jump to check out the new Rosewater images.  The film will likely make its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival before screening at TIFF, and is scheduled to open in theaters on November 7th.

Sigourney Weaver Brings “Va-Va-Voom” to Ancient Egypt in New EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS Images

20th Century Fox has released a couple of new Exodus: Gods and Kings images from director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic.  One of these new images gives us a closer look at Sigourney Weaver, who plays Tuya, the mother of Joel Edgerton’s Ramses.  Costume designer Janty Yates tells EW that Scott wanted the character to be “va-va-voom,” likening her to Jessica Rabbit—a woman on the prowl.  It’s a curious choice for the Biblical epic, though the rest of the cast is a bit stylized as well, with Edgerton and Christian Bale’s Moses both wearing their fair share of eyeliner.

Hit the jump to check out the Exodus: Gods and Kings images and to see what Bale had to say about taking on what he describes as one of the most fascinating characters he’s ever studied.  Exodus: Gods and Kings opens in theaters on December 5th.

Timecrimes and V/H/S: Viral director Nacho Vigalondo has returned with the voyeuristic  thriller Open Windows, which stars Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey in a fan-stalks-celebrity game of cat and mouse that seems to be spurred on by a faceless psychopath.  Vigalondo has always been an interesting director, so I’m eager to check this one out (you can also read Perri’s review of the film out of SXSW).

This brief theatrical trailer adds a kinetic quality to the material that seemed to be missing from the promotional materials thus far.  I’m hoping the movie lives up to it because, from the looks of this, it could actually be pretty satirical and fun.  Hit the jump for the Open Windows trailer and images.  Cinedigm releases the film on VOD and Digital Download on October 2nd with a limited theatrical run scheduled for November 7th.

R.J. Cutler’s adaptation of Gayle Forman’s If I Stay is getting closer to that August 22nd theatrical debut, so Warner Bros. just released a slew of high-resolution stills and behind-the-scenes shots from the film.  The movie stars Chloe Moretz as Mia Hall, a talented musician whose hopes and dreams are decimated by a terrible accident.  I haven’t read the book, but based on the film’s promo materials, this one looks to be a serious tearjerker, possibly on par with Josh Boone’s The Fault in Our Stars.

You can check out eight clips from If I Stay right here, and hit the jump to take a look at those images covering the happier times in Mia’s life and a bunch that clearly come from the post-accident portion of the film as well.  If I Stay also stars Jamie BlackleyMireille EnosLiana LiberatoJoshua Leonard and Stacy Keach.
