Relativity Media has released few new images from the upcoming comedy omnibus Movie 43. The film boasts a ginormous cast and multiple directors, as the central conceit focuses on a bunch of different people trying to track down “Movie 43.” Peter Farrelly spearheads the pic which includes a collection of shorts directed by Brett Ratner, Elizabeth Banks, Mike Judge, Bob Odenkirk, and many more.

If you like your movie trailers short on plot, heavy on the ad-libbing and redder than a Romney state, then you’ll love this new red-band effort from Movie 43. The Peter Farrelly ensemble comedy stars everyone you’ve ever heard of in Hollywood and even some you haven’t. Movie 43 has released another red-band trailer previously, but the new one mostly focuses on a stream of improv from Jason Sudeikis who is admiring Kristen Bell’s crotch.
Starring Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Bell, Halle Berry, Leslie Bibb, Kate Bosworth, Gerard Butler and everyone else, Movie 43 opens on January 25th, 2013. Hit the jump to see the new red-band trailer.
The first red-band trailer from the R-rated ensemble comedy Movie 43 has gone online. I ran out of room to list my thoughts because there’s so Goddamned-many people in this movie!

The first trailer and poster for the thriller Arbitrage have gone online. Richard Gere stars as a troubled hedge fund magnate desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire who makes a bloody error that forces him to scramble for help. The cast, anchored by Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth and rising star Brit Marling, is impressive and Arbitrage looks to be a fairly engrossing thriller. It’s obvious that there are two stories trying to be told at the same time, and I’m hoping the more intriguing character-centered one takes front and center. Matt noted this dichotomy in his review from Sundance, but I’m still quite eager to check the full film out once it hits theaters.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer and check out the poster. Directed by Nicholas Jarecki, the film also stars Laetitia Casta and Nate Parker. Arbitrage opens on September 14th.
There are two movies living inside Nicolas Jarecki‘s Arbitrage. Both films are about justice and a wealthy man’s struggle to elude it. They both appeal to our hope that one day the truth will out and that no one can hide their dark secrets forever no matter how desperately they might try. Both stories transcend class because we can all relate to a character who will stop at nothing when he’s at risk of losing everything. But only one story helps Arbitrage stand apart by intelligently showcasing a crime we rarely see depicted in film and embracing the rich drama of family betrayal. The other story is a dull episode of Law & Order.

The Double looks like it could have been a solid spy flick. You had Richard Gere and Topher Grace playing government agents trying to track down an assassin code-named Cassius. Nothing genre-shattering but it could be well executed. Well you know those irritating trailers that give away the entire damn plot? This trailer for The Double blows them all away. It gives you a major plot twist that would have been somewhat interesting if not wholly believable within the context of the movie. It takes you deep into the third act of the film. It shows you pretty much everything it can in a desperate big to make you want to see this movie and now any desire I had to see the flick has been extinguished by this trailer. Great job, whoever cut this.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer/condensed version of the entire movie along with the equally terrible poster. The film also stars Stana Katic, Stephen Moyer, Martin Sheen, and Odette Annable. The Double opens September 23rd.
Image Entertainment has released the first images from The Double. The flick centers on a former CIA operative (Richard Gere) who’s called out of retirement and must team up with a rookie FBI agent (Topher Grace) when a US senator turns up dead and bearing the distinctive trademark of a Russian assassin known as “Cassius”. I’m always up for a good spy thriller and I tend to think Grace is fantastic in everything. The film also stars Martin Sheen, Stephen Moyer, Odette Yustman, and Stana Katic.

Two upcoming Relativity Media films may not have titles, but they now have release dates. First up, James McTeigue’s Untitled Raven Project (previously titled The Raven) will open on March 9, 2012.

Relativity has also set the date for the Untitled Farrelly/Wessler Comedy that has an absolutely ridiculous cast starring in a series of interconnected stories.

We have two pieces of casting news for you this afternoon. First up, Variety reports that Diane Kruger and Lea Seydoux (Robin Hood) have joined the French period drama Les Adieux a la reine. The film is based on the novel by Chantal Thomas and centers on “the three decisive days of the French Revolution in July 1789, told from the point of view of Marie Antoinette’s reader.” Kruger will play Antoinette in the film, which also stars Gerard Depardieu and Noemie Lovski (The French Kissers). Benoit Jacquot will direct.

The cop drama is certainly no stranger to Hollywood and Antoine Fuqua, director of Training Day, is certainly no stranger to cop dramas. Although Brooklyn’s Finest has its similarities to Training Day, as far as corruption within the law goes, it seems to focus more on the struggles that take place within each of the main characters.
With a cast list that includes Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke, and Wesley Snipes, you might think this film was released sometime in the 1990s, but hit the jump to see if these guys have still got what it takes in 2010 and for my entire review of Brooklyn’s Finest on DVD:
Michael Brandt’s The Double has gotten a double-dose of hotness as Stana Katic (ABC’s Castle) and Odette Yustman (The Unborn) have joined the cast of the upcoming spy thriller. The story follows a retired CIA operative (Richard Gere) who partners with a young FBI agent (Topher Grace) to track down the killer of a senator. Stephen Moyer (True Blood) signed on to the project earlier this week.
Katic will play “a feisty Russian prostitute who fiercely protects key information.” You had me at “feisty Russian prostitute.” As for Yustman, she’ll being playing “Grace’s character’s wife, a strong woman who raises a family while coping with her husband’s Bureau career.” Filming is set to begin June 21st in Detroit. Hit the jump for images of these two actresses being all sexy and stuff.
