Earlier today, the lineup for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival was announced, which means that marketing materials are going online, or in the case of Bennett Miller‘s Foxcatcher, back online.  A teaser trailer was released last fall, but then Sony pulled it shortly before announcing that the film would be pushed back to 2014.  Now that the movie is playing in competition at Cannes, the Foxcatcher trailer is back online, and I highly recommend watching it if you haven’t already.  There are also new posters and trailers David Michôd’s upcoming thriller The Rover starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and for Atom Egoyan‘s The Captive starring Ryan Reynolds and Mireille Enos.  Both films look fascinating, and I’m eager to hear the reaction to all of these pictures after they play at Cannes.

Hit the jump to check out the trailers and posters.  The Rover opens in New York and L.A. on June 13th and goes nationwide on June 20th.  Domestic release dates have yet to be announced for Foxcatcher and The Captive.

First Trailer for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Starring Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Eva Green

Dimension Films has released the first trailer for co-director Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically-altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.  While I’m not crazy about the music they chose for this first cut, the character transformations are pretty damn cool.  Returning characters have a whole new look, which makes sense since it’s been almost a decade since the original film.  Newcomers to the franchise have been beat up, cut up, or dolled up to the point that they’re hardly recognizable.  A solid start.

Rosario Dawson Talks GIMME SHELTER, Coming Full Circle Since Her Debut in KIDS, Responding to the Screenplay, and Collaborating with Vanessa Hudgens

Rosario Dawson undergoes a startling transformation in Gimme Shelter and delivers a powerful performance as June, an angry, abusive addict and mother of a pregnant, homeless teenager named Apple (Vanessa Hudgens) who is struggling to survive.  Dawson felt a deeply emotional and personal connection to the story and her street-weary character.  Along with Hudgens, she was willing to go to the most unattractive places women can go because she felt it was something audiences needed to see.  Opening January 24th, the inspiring drama written and directed by Ronald Krauss also features James Earl Jones, Brendan Fraser, Stephanie Szostak, Emily Meade and Ann Dowd.   

At the film’s recent press day, Dawson talked about coming full circle from her film debut in Harmony Korine’s disturbing teen drama, Kids, where she played a character not too different from Apple, what caused her to respond so strongly to Krauss’ gritty screenplay, how she rarely broke character during filming, her collaboration with Hudgens, the fight sequences that left her bruised and exhausted, why she felt the film dovetailed well with the outreach work she does, and her latest projects including Raze, Cesar Chavez:  An America Hero, Sin City 2, Parts Per Billion, The Captive, and Finally Famous.

Rosario Dawson Talks TRANCE, Working with Danny Boyle, Playing a Female at the Center of a Male Dominated Story & a Nude Scene with James McAvoy

Rosario Dawson takes on one of the biggest acting challenges of her career playing an alluring hypnotherapist hired to help recover an amnesiac thief’s (James McAvoy) lost memories in Academy Award winning director Danny Boyle’s crime thriller, Trance, opening in theaters on April 5th.  When an adeptly planned heist at an auction house goes violently awry, the story quickly turns into a high stakes triangle where the painting’s thief, his partner in crime (Vincent Cassel), and the hypnotist all become trapped together in a mind bending puzzle of their own making.

At a roundtable interview at the film’s recent press day, Dawson talked about working with Boyle and helping to bring his vision to life.  She discussed preparing for the pivotal role, taking audiences on a fascinating journey into the world of the subconscious, finding a way to play a very complex character without giving away too much to the audience, holding her own as the female at the center of a male-dominated story, and her nude scene with McAvoy that is one of the movie’s most powerful moments.  Hit the jump to read more.

A new trailer for director Danny Boyle’s Trance has debuted.  This hypnotic crime thriller centers on James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) as Simon, a criminal mastermind behind an art heist who develops amnesia and forgets where he stashed the goods.  The mob boss, played by Vincent Cassel (Black Swan), is none too happy with this and resorts to torture to get his information.  Rosario Dawson (Sin City) also stars as a hypnotist who attempts to jumpstart Simon’s memory in another way.  This cut leaves out the bloody violence of the red-band trailer and focuses instead on the beautiful technicolor vision of Boyle’s latest thriller.

A new red-band trailer for Danny Boyle’s Trance is now available.  The crime-thriller stars James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) as Simon, a criminal mastermind behind an art heist who develops amnesia and forgets where he stashed the goods.  The mob boss, played by Vincent Cassel (Black Swan), is none too happy with this and resorts to torture to get his information.  Rosario Dawson (Sin City) also stars as a hypnotist who attempts to jumpstart Simon’s memory in another way.  This trailer certainly earns its red-band status with a combination of bloody torture, sex and violence and looks to be another Boyle classic.

Trance will open on March 27th in the U.K. and April 5th in the U.S.  Hit the jump to watch the new red-band trailer.

Four posters have been released for Danny Boyle‘s upcoming thriller, Trance.  The story centers on an art heist that goes sideways when its mastermind (James McAvoy) gets amnesia and can’t remember where he stashed the loot.  Vincent Cassel co-stars as mob boss leading the heist gang, and Rosario Dawson plays a hypnotist who tries to get the memories out of McAvoy’s character.  Three of the posters provide some nice optical illusions, and I don’t know if another recent major film has tried this other than Men in Black 3 and The Prestige.

Hit the jump to check out the U.K. posters.  Trance opens in the U.K. on March 27th.  A U.S. release is expected in the near future.

The first trailer for Danny Boyle‘s crime-thriller Trance has gone online.  The story centers on an art heist that goes sideways when its mastermind (James McAvoy) gets amnesia and can’t remember where he stashed the loot.  Vincent Cassel co-stars as mob boss leading the heist gang, and Rosario Dawson plays a hypnotist who tries to get the memories out of McAvoy’s character.  The trailer shows off the vibrant, twisty cinematography that has become a trademark of Boyle’s work, and McAvoy looks like he’s at the top of his game.  My only problem with the trailer is that I think it might give away too much of the plot.

Just yesterday we learned of a possible March U.K. release date for director Danny Boyle’s upcoming thriller Trance, and today the first official images from the film have landed online.  The story centers on an art heist that goes sideways when its mastermind (James McAvoy) gets amnesia and can’t remember where he stashed the loot.  Vincent Cassel co-stars as mob boss leading the heist gang, and Rosario Dawson plays a hypnotist who tries to get the memories out of McAvoy’s character.  Boyle notes that the film isn’t a straightforward thriller, and describes it as an “updated noir” that’s more emotionally charged than previous entries in the genre.  There also appears to be a love triangle aspect involving the three lead characters.

Hit the jump to check out the images and to read a few quotes from Boyle regarding the pic.  The film is reportedly set for release on March 27, 2013 in the U.K. [Update: The folks at Pathe Productions Limited have reached out to us to confirm the U.K. release date.]

Danny Boyle’s TRANCE Reportedly Set for March 27, 2013 U.K. Release; Film Stars James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel, and Rosario Dawson

We haven’t heard much about Danny Boyle‘s Trance this year, but that’s not too surprising since he was busy taking every British thing ever and putting it into the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics.  The movie centers on an art heist that goes sideways when its mastermind (James McAvoy) gets amnesia and can’t remember where he stashed the loot.  Vincent Cassell co-stars as mob boss leading the heist gang, and Rosario Dawson plays a hypnotist who tries to get the memories out of McAvoy’s character.  Boyle shot the film back in 2011, but he held off on post-production until he was done with the Olympics. Now that those are finished, work on Trance has resumed, and a U.K. release may have been announced.  Trance is reportedly set to open in the United Kingdom on March 27, 2013.
