There’s been a lot of hype surrounding Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and this week saw the release of a teaser poster to accompany the trailer that hit the internet at the end of last year. As far as posters go, it’s a simple yet intriguing one which features two weighty sentences – ‘Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.’ Starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine, Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who use a wormhole to conquer the vast distances involved in a space voyage. The film will be released in UK cinemas in November. Check out the poster below:
From a new poster to a brand new trailer in the form of Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Based on the classic children’s book by Judith Viorst, Alexander… is, as the painfully long title suggests, a story about the worst of days for a family who apparently aren’t used to having anything but the best of days. Directed by Miquel Arteta and starring Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Coolidge and Bella Thorne…it’s probably not going to win any awards but might be a light hearted laugh. Emphasis on might. Dick Van Dyke makes an appearance as himself so that’s something.
Looks like it’s morphin’ time chaps! A new movie about the Power Rangers has been announced by Lionsgate, who are working with the original creators, Saban, to bring the coloured heroes back to life. After the initial Japanese TV series, a successful relaunch – which spanned 17 seasons – and two films, is there any need for a new Power Rangers film? If you were a 90s kid, the answer is simple. Hell yes. Lionsgate said of the new film: “With an extensive and extremely devoted worldwide fan base as well as a deep and detailed mythology, the Power Rangers are primed for the big screen.”
This week’s casting news features UK favourite Ray Winstone and one of America’s finest, Frank Langella. Winstone has joined the Point Break remake, taking on the role of FBI Agent Pappas alongside Australian actor Luke Bracey, whilst Frank Langella is set to star in Zachary Sluser’s The Driftless Area, which is an adaptation of Tom Drury’s novel. Also starring in the film will be New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel, Anton Yelchin and Ciaran Hinds.
Finally, a red band trailer for Bong Joon-Ho’s apocalyptic, global warming film has been unleashed. Starring Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt and Alison Pill, Snowpiercer has already been released in Korea and is based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. Get ready for plenty of blood, shocks and horror with this one.
