While the summer has been awash with big action films, a heaping help of sci-fi and a trio of superhero movies, The Tall Man is coming to lead us into the fall. Director Pascal Laugier’s horror thriller centers on Julia Denning (Jessica Biel), the nurse of a small town which has been plagued by the recent disappearances of their children. Julia doesn’t put much stock in the culprit being the local urban legend of The Tall Man until her own son is taken. And though you’ve seen the trailer, posters and clips from the film, now The Tall Man is coming for you in this new motion poster. Also starring Jodelle Ferland, Stephen McHattie, William B. Davis and Jakob Davies, The Tall Man opens August 31st. Hit the jump to check out the motion poster.

Iron Man 2 may have shut him out, but Terrence Howard is in talks for the high profile role of Marvin Gaye in Cameron Crowe’s planned biopic of the renowned soul singer. Howard commented, “Nothing’s been signed on paper yet. Everybody who loves music will hate me if I get this one wrong.” Indeed we will, Mr. Howard, but there is reason to have faith: Howard was rather improbably nominated for an Oscar for his role in the hip hop tale, the music-heavy Hustle & Flow. Crowe (Almost Famous) has “secretly” been working on the film for three and a half years, somewhat prolonged by the fact that Will Smith reportedly rejected the role. The R&B legend is an obvious choice for a biopic, as Gaye is an icon whose life story has yet to be told on the big screen. [via Deadline]
