Here is the first official poster for director Chris Weitz’s A Better Life, which was promoted earlier as The Gardener. I love this image of the man and son, walking with the rolling streets of Los Angeles in the background.
You might be familiar with Weitz’s other movies, Twilight’s New Moon and The Golden Compass. They were on a much larger scale compared to A Better Life.
Obviously, this movie is simpler. We follow a hard-working immigrant, living in Los Angeles, as a landscaper for the rich. He struggles to raise his son free of gangs and immigration problems.
No release date is set and the trailer should be out soon. I can’t wait to see it.
Judd Apatow and Paul Feig are the producers of Bridesmaids from writer Kristen Wiig script. Directed by Feig, the movie includes Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper.
The comedy follows Annie (Wiig), who is a maid of honor. Her life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Rudolph), and a group of lively bridesmaids on a madcap roller coaster ride down the road to matrimony. The poster says it all: these girls are wild! It looks like a female version of The Hangover.
I am excited to present a brand new trailer and poster for the upcoming film There Be Dragons, an epic tale of jealousy, love, faith and redemption. Written and directed by two-time Academy Award-nominee Roland Joffé (The Mission and The Killing Fields), There Be Dragons stars Charlie Cox, Wes Bentley, Olga Kurylenko, Derek Jacobi, Dougray Scott and Rodrigo Santoro.
There Be Dragons tells the story of London-based investigative journalist Robert Torres (Scott), who visits Spain to research a book about Josemaría Escrivá (Cox), the controversial founder of Opus Dei. But Robert hits a wall, both professionally and personally, when his most promising source—his own father, Manolo Torres (Bentley), turns out to be his least cooperative source.
Robert begins to unearth his father’s toxic secrets when he learns that Manolo was not only born in the same Spanish town as Josemaría, but that they were childhood friends and attended the same seminary.
The two men take radically different paths in life, with Josemaría dedicating his life to his faith while Manolo is swept into the brutal and tumultuous Spanish Civil War. Manolo descends into a dangerous and jealous obsession when the beautiful Hungarian revolutionary Ildiko (Kurylenko) doesn’t return his affections and instead gives herself to the courageous military leader, Oriol (Santoro).
As Robert continues to unearth the secrets of Josemaría’s life and Manolo’s mysterious anger, their overlapping journeys are revealed with the truths and sorrows of their past choices, which compels Manolo to confront his own secret with one last opportunity of forgiveness.
This new poster for Jon Foy’s Sundance 2011 documentary film Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles caught my eye. I love a good mystery.
Filmmaker Jon Foy and Philadelphia-based artist and musician Justin Duerr began planning a documentary film about the Toynbee Tiles in 2000. Five years later, they began filming their investigation of these strange street plaques embedded in the asphalt of major U.S. and South American urban intersections that had held Duerr’s fascination for over a decade.
Having appeared on hundreds of reported examples from the mid-1980s to present, the cryptic four-line message of the Toynbee Tiles read: “Toynbee Idea / In Kubrick’s 2001 / Resurrect Dead / On Planet Jupiter.”
While the text on the plaques was clear enough, neither Duerr nor the numerous media outlets that had documented the phenomenon knew what these tiles meant, how or why they were installed, or who was responsible for them.
But as Justin starts piecing together key events of the past he finds a story that is more surreal than he imagined, and one that hits disturbingly close to home.
Those who happened to catch John Carpenter’s The Ward at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival might or might not appreciate that the movie is releasing in the UK on January 21, 2011. The director hasn’t secured US distribution rights yet.
The poster looks pretty simple with the key character Kristen (Amber Heard), a beautiful but troubled young woman, who ends up bruised, cut, drugged, and held against her will in a remote ward of a psychiatric hospital.
She is completely disoriented, with no idea why she was brought to this place and no memory of her life before being admitted. All she knows is that she isn’t safe. (No one is safe in a psychiatric hospital.)
The other patients in the ward—four equally disturbed young women—offer no answers, and Kristen quickly realizes things are not as they seem. The air is heavy with secrets, and at night, when the hospital is dark and foreboding, she hears strange and frightening sounds. It appears they are not alone. One-by-one, the other girls begin to disappear and Kristen must find a way out of this hellish place before she, too, becomes a victim. As she struggles to escape, she will uncover a truth far more dangerous and horrifying than anyone could have imagined.
I am sure you remember SAW 3D with all its motion posters, and Steve reviewed the horror flick, giving it a nine out of ten rating. According to Shockya.com, the 3D horror flick is opening in Spain this February, which calls for the wretched, bloody heart poster and SAW VII 3D title.
I am enjoying the Toy Story 3 Oscar campaign ads. They are clever and jokingly fun. It won’t be easy for Toy Story 3 to win the Oscar for Best Picture, but if they do that will be phenomenal and a deserving win.
Over twelve other ads are available to view at DisneyAwards Studio. Some of them are real clever, referring to movies that have won with an ideal image from Toy Story 3.
I like this international poster because it shows a lot about Paul and his two friends.
Paul has been hanging out at a top-secret military base for more than 60 years and it finally dawns on him to escape the compound. He hitches a ride on the first vehicle that comes his way, which is an RV driven by Graeme Willy (Simon Pegg) and Clive Collings (Nick Frost).
Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.
Other cast members include Kristen Wiig, Sigourney Weaver, Jeffrey Tambor, Bill Hader, Jason Bateman, Joe Lo Truglio and Jane Lynch.
