A poster for the dramedy arrives

Comedy is tricky genre, but every year there seem to be a few films in the genre that stand out among the rest as they genuinely entertain and speak to the human condition. We’ve already had the hilarious sleeper hit BRIDESMAIDS this year, but a little indie called 50/50 looks to join the crowd of admired comedies from 2011.

Based on real-life situations, 50/50 stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a man battling cancer; Will Reiser, whose circumstances inspired the film, also penned the script. A trailer hit some time ago, and now we have a poster, courtesy of /Film, that you can check out after the break. (more...)

The brief tickle of disappointment I felt when I learned that Kristen Wiig would be starring in and producing a passion project that is not a CLOWN GIRL adaptation was swiftly replaced when I learned a bit more about the star's latest project. Wiig will star in and executive produce IMOGENE, penned by Michelle Morgan. The film also has Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini on board to direct (they previously filmed such varied fare as CINEMA VERITE, AMERICAN SPLENDOR, and THE NANNY DIARIES).

IMOGENE will follow Wiig's character, "a playwright who fakes suicide to win back an ex and finds herself stuck in the custody of her gambler mother, trapped among family." The grimness of suicide aside, this sounds like it's right up Wiig's alley, and I can foresee a mix of drama, humor, and self-realization in the film. A bit like BRIDESMAIDS, no? (more...)

HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART IIisn’t only one of the year’s most anticipated films due to the franchise that it will be concluding, but because of a collection of trailers that it will be sharing the screen with.

Along with THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, the first trailer for SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS will bow with prints of the film, but in the meantime, it’s now online thanks to Apple, and it looks rather great. The film sees stars Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law returning as Holmes and Watson, while both Noomi Rapace and Jared Harris make their franchise debut here, both looking top notch in their respective roles.

While actress Ruth Wilson may not be well known around these parts, she’s looking to have one hell of an introduction to domestic audiences.

Best known for turns on shows like Luther and the Masterpiece Theater take on Jane Eyre, Deadline is reporting that the actress is in talks to star opposite Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp in Disney’s THE LONE RANGER. The film will be helmed by Gore Verbinski, and according to the outlet, she beat out actresses like Jessica Chastain and Abbie Cornish, so this is definitely an impressive debut for the up-and-coming thespian.

Despite chatter of being behind a cavalcade of projects ranging from a King Arthur project to a possible (if the second film does well) third SHERLOCK HOLMES, it looks like director Guy Ritchie may be doing something quite different instead.

Twitch is reporting that Ritchie is currently overseeing new drafts of the script for SGT. ROCK, and will be helming the project for WB. The last we heard of the film, it was in the hands of Francis Lawrence, but now it looks as though the film has reverted back to Ritchie. (more...)

Captain Kirk and now maybe Robocop? It's like Chris Pine is trying to get me to have a man-crush on him.

Since Jose Padilha signed on to direct the ROBOCOP remake, MGM has been laying low as the script was getting a final polish, and now it looks like the wheels are turning again. According to Twitch, the studio is beginning to compile its wish list of actors to take the lead role. At the top of that list? Chris (stubble-face) Pine. (more...)

Breaking news! THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is a movie, it has a trailer, and some dude has seen it.

We just received news that THE DARK KNIGHT RISES does, in fact, have a trailer. This coming on the heels of the first teaser poster which was revealed yesterday. Speculation has been mounting for some time now, as it seemed director Christopher Nolan had been working with some kind of cast and crew filming a mysterious movie about a caped man. We can now confirm that the movie is indeed THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Not only that, we can also confirm that a major motion picture will be getting its very own trailer, and someone has already seen this trailer and find the need to describe it to people!

The title of "white knight" belongs to the folks over at Collider and AICN, who both confirmed its existence. Check out the description of a trailer which will tease a movie that exists and is coming out at an unconfirmed date sometime in the future, after the jump. (more...)

Chock this one up as a rumor for now, but it’s interesting none-the-less.

Twitch is reporting that Mandate Films is eyeballing star Josh Brolin to take on the lead role of the newly minted Spike Lee joint, the director’s remake of OLDBOY. Offers have yet to be made, contracts yet to be signed, but it definitely is an interesting direction if this is in fact the face or type of face they want to lead this project with. Brolin has been one of the film world’s most interesting names for years now, and this would be a role unlike anything we’ve really seen from the guy up until this point in his career.
