Matthew McConaughey Splashes Down in Another New INTERSTELLAR Poster

by     Posted 13 minutes ago

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.

New AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW Images Reveal Kathy Bates’ Bearded Lady, Michael Chiklis’ Strong Man, and More

Ahead of the fourth season premiere next month, FX has unveiled a batch of new American Horror Story: Freak Show images.  Ryan Murphy’s anthology series returns with a new setting, hook, and cast of characters, this time focusing on the carnies of a traveling freak show in 1952 Florida.  These images give us a close-up look at Kathy Bates as the Bearded Lady, Michael Chiklis as the Strong Man, and plenty more additions to the ensemble.  This anthology format has been a suitable outlet for Murphy, who tends to expend all of his creative energy in a short amount of time.  Even so, portions of AHS seasons in the past have felt too crowded and overloaded at times.  My hope is that the Freak Show story will be a bit more streamlined this year, but regardless, seeing a bearded Kathy Bates and a two-headed Sarah Paulson should be quite entertaining.

Hit the jump to check out the new American Horror Story: Freak Show images and a disturbing new poster.  The series also stars Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Angela Basset, Emma Roberts, Denis O’Hare, Frances Conroy, Patti LaBelle, Finn Wittrock, Naomi Grossman, and John Caroll LynchAmerican Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on FX on October 8th.

A MOST VIOLENT YEAR Trailer and Poster; J.C. Chandor’s Film Starring Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac Opens Dec 31 in NY and L.A.

J.C. Chandor is definitely on the rise, with a surprising amount of people favoring his dark horse Robert Redford film All Is Lost over Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity juggernaut in last year’s “solo and in peril” sweepstakes.  And A Most Violent Year definitely looks like it could be the film that really solidifies his place on the map.  The film is set in New York in 1981 and revolves around “an American immigrant (Oscar Isaac) and his wife (Jessica Chastain) trying to expand their business as violence and corruption threaten to destroy all they have built.”

A24 has just released a trailer for the film that’s incredibly intense and foreboding and surprisingly successful in making you feel like you know these characters already.  Oscar Isaac is such a chameleon, I had to look twice to make sure this was in fact the same Isacc from Inside Llewyn Davis. And of course Jessica Chastain has never delivered a bad performance.  The trailer doesn’t even really show Albert Brooks, but after Drive I’m hoping he plays a similarly menacing figure.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster for A Most Violent Year.  The film opens in NY and LA on December 31st.

New INTERSTELLAR Poster Finally Features the Beauty of the Cosmos and a Positive Tagline

by     Posted Yesterday

Another Interstellar poster has gone online, and it’s the prettiest of the bunch so far. 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.”  The most recent trailer gave us a hint of how gorgeous the space scenes will be, and this poster is another glimpse at that promise.  It also doesn’t have a tagline that mixes the hope of discovery with the reminder that we’re all going to die unless we leave Earth.

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

by     Posted 2 days ago

interstellar-poster-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.

We’ve got an exclusive new poster from X-Men and Watchmen writer David Hayter’s feature directorial debut, Wolves, to share with our readers today.  Hayter wrote and directed the horror film, which stars Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class) as a young high school student who realizes that he’s slowly changing into a werewolf.  After the brutal murder of his parents, he sets off to uncover the truth of what he is, only to find there are many more like him—including a young woman named Angelina (Merritt Patterson).  The cast also includes Stephen McHattie and Jason Momoa, and this debut poster teases confrontation among the beastly creatures as well as some solid werewolf design.

Hit the jump to take a look at the new Wolves poster.  The film will be released VOD on October 16th and opens in theaters on November 14th.

A bunch of brand new posters just hit the web.  Here’s what’s coming at a glance:

  • Into the Woods – This one’s rocking quite the cast, but when you’ve got Meryl Streep on the roster, how can she not be the one front and center on the poster?
  • V/H/S: Viral – We’ve got a new poster for the third installment of the V/H/S franchise just in time for the film’s Fantastic Fest screening.
  • Dracula Untold – We’ve got a brand new IMAX poster for Dracula Untold, but it looks a lot like the one we got back in June.
  • Playing It Cool – This movie looks pretty ridiculous and now it’s got an odd international poster featuring Chris Evans to match.

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.

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES Banner Lays Out the Final Stand

A brand new The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies banner has been released, detailing the epic scope of the final film in director Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy.  This banner reminds of the one that was released for An Unexpected Journey before the adaptation was turned into a trilogy, which gave us a look at how this series would have been structured as a diptych.  Judging by this massive banner for Five Armies, Jackson plans on going out with a bang in his final foray into Middle-earth, but I’ll always wonder if this adaptation might’ve been more compelling if the director had stuck to two films.  Forget the extended edition Blu-rays, I’d love to see an abridged version that cuts the trilogy into two movies.

Anyway, hit the jump to take a look at the ginormous The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies banner.  The film stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lilly, Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Hugo Weaving, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Cate BlanchettThe Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies storms into theaters in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on December 17th.

Final THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 1 Poster and Trailer Teaser

The Hunger Games may be over and done with, but that doesn’t mean President Snow (Donald Sutherland) won’t find another way to punish Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) for sparking the rebellion and threatening to topple his regime.  The new trailer isn’t due for another five days, but Lionsgate has released a The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 trailer countdown and in it, Snow warns, “It’s the things we love most that destroy us.”  Based on his tactics in the last two films, that’s basically his M.O., so Prim (Willow Shields), Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth) better watch out.

On top of that, we’ve also got the final poster for the film.  Mockingjay – Part 1 doesn’t hit theaters until November 21st, so it seems a little early to unleash a final poster now, but we did get those two sets of character posters, so how many more do really need?  Plus, knowing Lionsgate, their marketing team will really ramp things up as we get closer to the release, so better make room for loads of trailers, TV spots, clips and more.  Hit the jump to check out the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 poster and that trailer preview.

Exclusive JOHN WICK Poster: Keanu Reeves’ Fuse Is Lit and Ready to Explode

john wick poster keanu reeves slice

With director Chad Stahelski and producer David Leitch’s John Wick set to premiere at Fantastic Fest this month, we’re happy to premiere the first poster for the action thriller.  In the film, Keanu Reeves stars as “an ex-hitman [who] comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.”  Click here to see a beat-up Keanu in the first image released last month.  While the film might not be on your radar yet, one of the reasons I’m extremely optimistic this could be something cool is the filmmakers.  While you might not know their names, you’ve definitely seen their awesome work in films like Speed Racer, The Bourne Legacy,The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and tons of others.  On some of what I just mentioned they did the stunts, and on some they directed second unit (which means they directed a lot of the action).  In addition to the films I just mentioned, they run 87eleven, which is the premiere action design team in Hollywood.  When an actor needs to be trained for an action role, they get sent to 87eleven.  I’ve heard the company’s name too many times to count over the past few years.

Anyway, John Wick is their feature debut and I’m willing to bet they’re going to pull out all the stops on the action scenes.  The real question is can they handle the script and the quiet scenes?  John Wick also stars Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Dean Winters, Bridget Moynahan, with Ian McShane, John Leguizmo, and Willem Dafoe co-star.  Check out the John Wick poster after the break.

A new full trailer for writer-director Sean Anders’ R-rated comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2 is now online.  This cut sees stars Jason BatemanCharlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis finding their groove as criminals who opt to take part in the more lucrative business of kidnapping and ransom rather than murderous revenge.  The change in plot points this time around seems like it frees up the trio to flex their comedy muscles even more than in the original film.  While Horrible Bosses 2 could easily suffer from the usual sequel pitfalls, it’s worth the price of admission just to have these three on screen together.  Be sure to check out the previously released trailer for even more hilarity.

Also starring Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Chris Pine, and Kevin SpaceyHorrible Bosses 2 opens November 26th.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer and take a look at the new poster.

Jason Reitman’s MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN Poster Reminds Us That Studio Poster Art Isn’t Entirely Dead

Ahead of the film’s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival later this week, Paramount Pictures has released the first Men, Women & Children poster and it’s kind of fantastic.  Up in the Air and Juno director Jason Reitman’s new film looks to be an incredibly dark departure for the filmmaker, as it follows the story of a group of high schoolers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, communication, self-image, and their love lives.  Aside from the wonderful folks at Mondo, the world of official movie poster art has been frustratingly dull over the past decade or so.  Thankfully, Reitman understands that the one-sheet can be an extension of the film’s creative expression itself, giving us this beautiful and slightly haunting Men, Women & Children poster.  More of this, please.

Hit the jump to take a look at the Men, Women & Children poster in full, and check back for Matt’s review of the film itself from TIFF later this week.  The pic stars Ansel Elgort, Kaitlyn Dever, Jennifer Garner, Adam SandlerRosemarie DeWittJudy GreerDean NorrisJ.K. SimmonsTimothée ChalametOlivia Crocicchia and Emma Thompson.  Men, Women & Children opens in limited release on October 1st and expands wide on October 17th.
