Film News From Total Film Magazine - 11 hours 6 min ago

Fox has released a trio of new featurettes for X-Men: Days Of Future Past online, featuring a glut of previously unseen footage.

The new videos contain a number of talking-head interviews with cast and crew, but the main draw here is the various snippets of new material, of which there are several.

Watch out for some more of Peter Dinklage then, and the towering Sentinels his character, Boliver Trask, is responsible for creating.

Take a look at the new featurettes, below…





Needless to say, across the many trailers, clips and featurettes that have been released, we have seen rather a lot of footage, but to be honest, it's only made us the more excited for the finished film! Not long to go now…

Directed by Bryan Singer and co-starring Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 22 May 2014.

Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Renner and Joaquin Phoenix star in The Immigrant trailer: watch now

Film News From Total Film Magazine - 11 hours 19 min ago

The first trailer has arrived from James Gray's period drama, The Immigrant, in which Marion Cotillard's Polish immigrant lands in 1920s America, alone and afraid after her sister is deported upon arrival.

When Joaquin Phoenix offers her a way to stay in the country, things appear to be looking up, until it becomes clear which line of business her new benefactor is involved in.

It turns out that Phoenix has embroiled her in the world of prostitution, with her only hope of escape coming in the form of his magician cousin, the dashing Jeremy Renner.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…



It's certainly a heavyweight central cast to take on the meaty subject material, and the swathes of gushing review quotes interwoven into the trailer seem to bode well for this one…

Directed by Gray and co-starring Dagmara Dominczyk, Jicky Schnee and Antoni Corone, The Immigrant will open in the US on 16 May 2014, with a UK date to be confirmed.

Gareth Edwards talks "serious" Godzilla in new featurette: watch now

Film News From Total Film Magazine - 11 hours 39 min ago

A new Godzilla featurette has been released online, in which director Gareth Edwards discusses the approach he took to the material, and his desire to treat it "seriously".

Edwards refers to the original film's allegorical references to Hiroshima and Nagasaki as touching points for how a monster movie can be both hugely entertaining, but also have a serious point to make.

With that in mind, for all the new film's mayhem and carnage, Edwards was determined to shoot it in as realistic a style as possible, so as to make the set-up more believable.

Check out the full interview, below…



It's encouraging that Edwards name-checks Spielberg as a key influence in his approach to this film, with the director keen to work as much suspense into the building-crushing action as possible.

Co-starring Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, Godzilla will open in the UK on 15 May 2014.

First trailer arrives for Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys: watch now

Film News From Total Film Magazine - 11 hours 53 min ago

The first trailer has arrived online for Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys, the big-screen adaptation of the hit stage musical following the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

Following the group's meteoric rise through the '60s, thanks to the likes of Walk Like A Man and Sherry, the film will deal with the good times before eventually moving on to the strife that came with their success…

And whether or not you're a fan of Valli's crooning, the dramatic meat on the bones of their rags to riches tale should be enough to keep things interesting.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…



Christopher Walken's involvement looks particularly enjoyable, although he's playing the group's manager rather than a shady, New Jersey hood. Booo!

Directed by Eastwood and co-starring John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza and Michael Lomenda, Jersey Boys will open in the UK on 20 June 2014.

Zack Snyder updates on Batman vs. Superman

Film News From Total Film Magazine - 12 hours 9 min ago

Zack Snyder has given an update on how things are progressing with Batman vs. Superman, revealing his excitement at seeing his titular heroes together for the first time.

"Even just Batman and Superman standing next to each other… " marvels Snyder. "It’s kind of epic. You do sort of sense the weight of the pop culture iconography jumping out of its skin when you’re standing there looking at the two of them and Wonder Woman."

"It’s crazy, but it’s fun. I mean, I have the first photo, I’ve got it in my archive because I was like, 'Okay, I better keep this, it’s gonna be worth something!'"

And with that level of excitement building, Snyder admits that the level of secrecy he needs to maintain can occasionally be a drag…

"I’m like, 'God, I want to send this to the Internet immediately,'" says Snyder, when talking about the new Batsuit. "But I know I’m not allowed to! I do value the sort of excitement of the way the film is revealed."

Co-starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, Batman vs. Superman will open in the UK on 6 May 2016.

Chris Pine May Clock In For The Finest Hours

Craig Gillespie is in talks to direct the coast guard drama

Though his last stab at screen heroism, Jack Ryan, didn’t exactly set the box office alight, Chris Pine has had better luck at the helm of a ship, even if it is one that traverses between the stars and not across the ocean. He may be hoping for similar success with a real-life naval tale, The Finest Hours.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pine is in talks to star in the film, which is drawn from the true story of two oil tankers being caught in massive Nor’easter storm off the New England coast in 1952. The ships split in two and their crews were thrown into the raging seas. The coast guard was called out and had to attempt a rescue in the tempestuous waves. Though his role isn’t specified, Pine would likely be leading the Guard crew.

Fright Night director Craig Gillespie is in talks to call the shots on this one, which was originally developed by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, adapting Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias’ book. Robert Schwentke had been attached to make the film, but he was lured away by the job of directing Divergent sequel Insurgent.

Pine has a few film roles in the can, including Z For Zachariah, comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2 and Rob Marshall’s new musical, Into The Woods.

Spielberg Plans The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara

Yet another potential directing job

Fear not, Spielbergers. The man behind Lincoln, Jurassic Park and so many famous films is not planning to snatch someone from the street and incur the wrath of Liam Neeson’s Bryan Mills. Instead, The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara is yet another potential project for him to direct.

There’s every chance the script will spend time cooling its heels in Spielberg’s development pile, though, and it’s still in an embryonic form. If he does decide to take it on, Mortara would see a reunion between the director and his Munich/Lincoln collaborator, Tony Kushner. The writer is adapting David Kertzer’s novel, which charts the true story of a seven-year-old Italian Jew thrust into controversy in 1858 when he was taken from his parents and raised as a Catholic by authorities of the Papacy. He ended up becoming a priest. Even if he doesn't end up making the film himself, Spielberg plans to produce it for The Weinstein Company.

We’re still waiting to find out which of Spielberg’s current floating future films will become a reality, though according to Variety, technofear novel adaptation Robopocalypse appears to be a strong contender now that its script has been polished and its budget has been tweaked, although there is also the historical drama currently known as Montezuma, which Steven Zailllian is at work on.

Steven Spielberg Eyes Religious Drama 'The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara'

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 17 hours 49 min ago

Steven Spielberg has signed on to produce and possibly direct the religious drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, a project which reunites him with his Lincoln and Munich screenwriter Tony Kushner. The project will be a co-production between DreamWorks and The Weinstein Company.

The story is adapted from the David Kertzer book that tells the true story of a seven year old Italian-Jewish boy, who, in 1858, was controversially removed from his parents by the authority of the Papal States, who raised him as a Catholic. He went on to become a priest in the Augustinian order.

Steven Spielberg has not directed a movie since 2012's Lincoln, and the filmmaker is reportedly anxious to get back behind the camera. However, Tony Kushner is currently in the early stages of writing the script for The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, which will definitely not be his next project.

He is currently deciding between Robopocalypse, which just received a new rewrite from Steven Zaillian, and the historical drama Montezuma, although that project likely isn't far enough along in development to be ready for production. Some sources claim that Steven Spielberg hasn't committed to either project, while some claim that Robopocalypse, which was indefinitely delayed back in January 2013, is the front-runner, with the budget close to being finalized.

Chris Hemsworth is still attached to star in Robopocalypse, and although he is currently shooting Avengers: Age of Ultron, sources claim the actor still wants to fit Robopocalypse into his schedule. Another reason Robopocalypse may come first is that the adaptation is a co-production between DreamWorks and 20th Century Fox, where current DreamWorks partner Stacey Snider is expected to land her next job after her contract expires in November.

Watch 5 'Million Dollar Arm' Clips Starring Jon Hamm

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 18 hours 47 min ago

In Walt Disney Pictures' drama Million Dollar Arm, the fate of JB Bernstein's (Jon Hamm) career as a sports agent rests with finding an exceptionally gifted young cricket pitcher in India, who can be trained for an American major league baseball team. Disney has released quite a bit of footage with 5 clips, 3 TV spots and a behind-the-scenes featurette.

Million Dollar Arm: Movie Pictures Gallery

Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein finds that business has changed and things aren't going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball's next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called "The Million Dollar Arm." With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint, he discovers Dinesh and Rinku, two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda, learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

Million Dollar Arm comes to theaters May 16th, 2014 and stars Jon Hamm, Lake Bell, Bill Paxton, Bar Paly, Alan Arkin, Aasif Mandvi, King, Autumn Dial. The film is directed by Craig Gillespie.

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 18 hours 52 min ago

Chris Pine is in talks to star in Disney's Coast Guard drama The Finest Hours.

The plot is based on the true story of two oil tankers who were caught in the middle of a vicious Noreaster storm off the coast of New England in 1952. Both ships were split in two, causing the crew members to be hurled into the sea, when the Coast Guard mounted a heroic rescue mission.

Tougias. No production schedule was given.

Chris Pine most recently starred in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and he will next be seen in Into the Woods and Horrible Bosses 2.

The Finest Hours comes to theaters in 2015 and stars Chris Pine. The film is directed by Craig Gillespie.

First Jersey Boys Trailer

Clint Eastwood's musical adaptation is heating up

Musicals and Clint Eastwood are not always a natural fit, as anyone who's seen Paint Your Wagon will attest. But Jersey Boys is another story, since the director won't be called upon to sing as much. And besides, the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons involves a heck of a lot of male bonding and tussling, as well as underworld connections that should be right up his alley. Here's the first trailer for the film, and a new poster.

Adapted from the hugely successful stage show, Jersey Boys follows the ups and downs of what would become the Four Seasons. Onstage, it's a story told through four sections themed around each of the seasons of the year, and narrated by each member of the band in turn. Tommy DeVito, Bob Gaudio, Nick Massi and Franki Castelluccio (aka Valli) all take their turn to discuss their rise, fall and rise again. On screen, that has been transformed into the guys talking to camera to explain their side of events. {Jersey Boys Poster}

Eastwood has recruited relative unknowns for the band members, with John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza taking the leads, but he has Christopher Walken in for support, with a script that has seen work from John Logan and the musical's creators, Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. It'll walk like a man into our cinemas on June 20.
