Matthew McConaughey Splashes Down in Another New INTERSTELLAR Poster

by     Posted 4 days ago

interstellar-movie-poster

Paramount Pictures continues its marketing campaign for Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated new film by unveiling yet another new Interstellar poster—the fourth such one-sheet of the week.  While the first two posters were a diptych of sorts, showing Matthew McConaughey on an ice planet and back on Earth, respectively, the third poster focused on space at large.  This fourth and presumably final poster (of this week, at least) sees McConaughey trekking through yet another uncharted planet, knee-deep in a liquid substance (water?) while the gorgeous heavens paint the sky above him.  I’m wary of seeing too much footage from the film before it hits theaters, so if Paramount wants to just continue releasing posters that tease the epic scope and locations of the film without getting into plot, that would be fine by me.

Take a look at the new Interstellar poster after the jump.  The film opens in 2D and IMAX on November 7th and also stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bently, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Timothee Chalamet, and Matt Damon.

Matthew McConaughey Will Not Be Back for MAGIC MIKE XXL, Movie is “Very Different”

by     Posted 6 days ago

This isn’t entirely unexpected, but we can put a big R.I.P. on the wishful thoughts that every Magic Mike cast member would be back for Magic Mike XXL.  Despite the global success of director Steven Soderbergh’s original film (the $7 million budget was rewarded with a $167 million worldwide gross), co-star Matthew McConaughey will not be returning.  I’m not too surprised since the sequel is already shooting and we hadn’t heard too much about his involvement.

Magic Mike XXL is being directed by Gregory Jacobs and will be shot by Peter Andrews (aka Steven Soderbergh) and edited by Mary Ann Bernard (aka Steven Soderbergh).  And don’t worry, it still stars Channing Tatum.  Hit the jump for more on Matthew McConaughey not coming back for Magic Mike XXL.

Matthew McConaughey Looks to the Stars in Another INTERSTELLAR Poster, While Brad Pitt Is Bruised in New FURY Poster

New posters for two of the most anticipated films of the year have arrived online.  Hot on the heels of yesterday’s icy one sheet, another new Interstellar poster grounds Matthew McConaughey on Earth in director Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi film.  It pairs nicely with yesterday’s space-set poster, and also focuses on what looks to be the emotional hook of the story: a father-daughter relationship.  I’m more than sold on this movie already, so now I’m just counting down the days until the pic’s November 7th release in both traditional theaters and IMAX.

We’ve also got a brand new poster for director David Ayer’s original World War II drama Fury.  The story revolves around a tank crew in the final days of the war, as they battle a desperate German army.  This new poster puts Brad Pitt front and center as the tank’s leader Wardaddy, while also providing a snapshot of the tank crew in its entirety.  It’s tad over-photoshopped, but the film remains one of my must-sees of the fall.  Fury also stars Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena, and Jon Bernthal and opens on October 17th.  Hit the jump to check out both posters.

New INSTERSTELLAR Poster Will Not Be the End of Us

Warner Bros. and Paramount have released a new Interstellar poster online.  The film stars Matthew McConaughey and revolves around a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole “to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.”  Like the teaser poster, the tagline is a mix of fatalism and optimism, and I’m curious to see if that will mirror the tone of the picture.  As for the shot of McConaughey in the spacesuit, his expression is inscrutable.  Is it determined?  Confused?  Hungry?  He’s a real actor now, so it’s layered.

Matthew McConaughey Embarks on an Existential Journey in First SEA OF TREES Image; Talks Working with Gus Van Sant

Interest was high in what Matthew McConaughey would choose as his next project following his one-two punch of Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective (ie. peak McConaissance).  Refreshingly, the actor once again opted to do something a bit different, signing on to lead director Gus Van Sant’s existential drama The Sea of Trees.  The first Sea of Trees image has now landed online, giving us our first look at McConaughey and Ken Watanabe in the context of the film, which follows a man who enters the “Suicidal Forest” in Mount Fuji with the intention of taking his own life.  When he is interrupted by a Japanese man who is having second thoughts about his own suicide, the two begin a journey of reflection and survival.  Sounds about right for the guy who brought Rust Cohle to life in such vivid detail.

Hit the jump to take a look at the first Sea of Trees image and to see what McConaughey had to say about working with Van Sant and the poetic nature of the film.  The Sea of Trees also stars Naomi Watts and is currently filming in Massachusetts before moving on to Japan.

INTERSTELLAR TV Spot Repurposes Old Trailer Footage to Remind You That This Movie Will Probably Be Good

by     Posted 28 days ago

Warner Bros. has released a “new” Interstellar TV spot for writer/director Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film.  The spot doesn’t actually contain any new footage, but instead just repurposes footage from the latest trailer in a new 60-second cut—and that’s fine by me.  Nolan usually does a fine job of keeping the major aspects of his films out of the trailers, but even The Dark Knight Rises wasn’t immune to WB’s need to show footage from the third act in the trailers leading up to its release.  Regardless, Interstellar certainly looks to be one hell of a moviegoing experience, and with this absolutely stacked cast onboard I can’t wait to see what Nolan has put together.

Allison and Adam Predict the 2014 Primetime Emmy Winners

emmy-predictions-2014

It was another fantastic year for television, and the 2014 Emmy nominations mostly captured that (…more or less). But when it comes to winners, the Emmys can be a wily beast, as seen in last year’s bevy of baffling wins (Jeff Daniels for NewsroomBobby Cannavale for Boardwalk Empire, among others).  Expect the expected with the Emmys, usually — unless they go completely off the wall.

This year, I have requested the expertise of Collider’s own Adam Chitwood to assist me with picks, not only because he closely follows the awards circuit year-round, he also has a much better track record than I do for picking awards winners in general.  Hit the jump for our guesses about how the results will play out and why in our 2014 Emmy predictions.  The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers, will air live on NBC Monday, August 25th at 8pm ET/5pm PT.

Matthew McConaughey’s got an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for True Detective, he’s the star of one of the most anticipated movies of the fall, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, and now, on top of that, it looks as though he might be lining up three more projects.

About a month ago we told you that McConaughey was in talks for The Company Man and now it’s being reported that he’s also wanted for the adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand and Stephen Gaghan’s Gold as well.  Hit the jump for more on both films. [UpdateThe Stand director Josh Boone has taken to Twitter to clarify that he's actually be writing the film with McConaughey in mind for the role of Stu Redman and Christian Bale in mind for Randall Flagg.  More after the jump.]

John Lithgow and Alfred Molina Talk LOVE IS STRANGE, Prepping Without Rehearsals, Props They’ve Kept from Past Films, INTERSTELLAR and More

You’d think two prolific actors like John Lithgow and Alfred Molina would have worked together before.  The guys are good friends, but, it turns out, Love Is Strange is their very first movie together.  They play Ben and George, respectively.  They’ve been together for 39 years, but are only first making it official now.  But, as soon as they get married, the Catholic school where George works fires him leaving them no choice, but to sell their apartment and find a less expensive one.  However, until they find that new place, they need somewhere to stay and no one they know can accommodate them both, so Ben heads off to live with his nephew (Charlie Tahan) and his family in Brooklyn while George settles in with their former neighbors.

With Love Is Strange due for a limited release this weekend, we got the opportunity to sit down with Lithgow and Molina to talk about their experience making the film.  Hit the jump to hear about how they finally found a film to work on together, how they prepped for the movie without rehearsals, favorite props they’ve kept from previous films, Lithgow’s character in Interstellar and much more.

Production Begins on Gus Van Sant’s SEA OF TREES Starring Matthew McConaughey, Ken Watanabe, and Naomi Watts

“The McConaissance” continues as Gus Van Sant’s new project Sea of Trees starts shooting today.  As you may have guessed, the film stars Matthew McConaughey as well as Ken Watanabe and Naomi Watts.  Penned by Chris Sparling, the story follows a man who enters the “Suicidal Forest” at Mount Fuji with the intention of taking his own life.  When he is interrupted by a Japanese man who is having second thoughts about his own suicide, the two “begin a journey of reflection and survival.”

This sounds exactly like the kind of film I feel Van Sant should be doing and it makes me glad that 50 Shades of Grey dalliance ended for him when it did.  Hit the jump for the full press release on Sea of Trees starting up.  The film will shoot on location in Massachusetts and Japan with no release date set as-of-yet.

Earlier today Paramount Pictures released a third trailer for Interstellar, director Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi drama.  The film stars Matthew McConaughey and revolves around a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole “to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.”  We got such a nice, expanded look at the film’s world (and the worlds of the film) in the new trailer that we thought we’d put together an image gallery of some of the trailer’s highlights.

INTERSTELLAR Comic-Con Panel Recap: Christopher Nolan Surprises with First Ever Comic-Con Appearance; Debuts New Trailer

interstellar-comic-con-panel-recap

The Paramount panel at Comic-Con today was not packed.  The program didn’t specify what the studio was showing.  We assumed that they would be bringing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and then it wasn’t too much of a surprise when they also featured Project Almanac, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, and even Hot Tub Time Machine.  It was a nice bit of promotion when Dwayne Johnson came on stage to tell people he was hosting free screenings of Hercules tonight at three theaters.  People love Dwayne Johnson.  And maybe if he was announced on the program, it could have packed the hall.

If Paramount had announced the final panel of its presentation, I would have had to line up well before sunrise.  Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey were here.  Hit the jump for my Interstellar Comic-Con panel recap.

Though the Primetime Emmy Awards are the TV honors that everyone’s familiar with, when it comes to clout, the Television Critics Association Awards take the cake.  Voted on by over 200 professional journalists, the TCA Awards honor the very best in television regardless of which networks can afford the most expensive campaigns, and so the list of 2014 winners comes with a considerable degree of weight.  Breaking Bad took the “Program of the Year” title for the second year in a row, while the Outstanding Achievement in Drama award went to CBS’ critical favorite The Good Wife.  The Best Comedy award resulted in a tie between the blissfully explicit Veep and FX’s wholly unique Louie, while True Detective won both Best Miniseries and Individual Achievement in a Drama for Matthew McConaughey.  As for Best New Program, that honor went to Netflix’s swell Orange Is the New Black.
