Focus Features has released a new trailer for Sofia Coppola‘s new southern gothic thriller The Beguiled, which boasts an exceptional cast that includes Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning.
Oona Laurence, Angourie Rice, Emma Howard, Addison Riecke co-star. While a Beguiled film already exists, Coppola’s screenplay adaptation of Thomas Cullinan’s novel of the same name looks more twisted and seductive than 1971’s version by Don Siegel starring Clint Eastwood.
Takeshi Kitano returns as a hard-boiled yakuza in the third installment of his Outrage gangster saga, titled Outrage 0: Coda. Kitano, of course, is in front and behind the camera again.
Also starring Toshiyuki Nishida, Tatsuo Nakada, Nao Omori, Pierre Taki, and Ren Osugi, the film will be released in Japan this October.
Janus Films has released the new trailer for Criterion Collection’s 2K restoration of Andrei Tarkovsky’s brilliant science fiction classic Stalker.
The restored version will be screening in a limited theatrical run at the Film Society of Lincoln Center starting on May 5 (followed by Solaris), and will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on July 18.
Following the box-office success of the R-rated Deadpool and Logan, some fans are hoping that Marvel Studios should be jumping on that bandwagon too.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, however, sees it differently, and doesn’t have plans of making R-rated movie anytime soon. Speaking with THR, the studio head explained his own takeaway from those movies:
The Orchard has released the first official trailer for The Hero, starring Sam Elliott as an aging western actor who tries to cement his legacy with one final performance.
The film is directed by Brett Haley (I’ll See You in My Dreams) and also stars Laura Prepon, Krysten Ritter, Nick Offerman, and Katharine Ross. The Hero played at Sundance and at SXSW to mostly positive reviews.
Lionsgate and CBS Films have released the official trailer for their upcoming action thriller American Assassin, featuring The Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien as CIA black ops recruit who works with Michael Keaton to stop terror attacks.
Co-starring Taylor Kitsch, Sanaa Lathan, Scott Adkins, David Suchet, and Shiva Negar, the film is directed by Michael Cuesta from a screenplay by Stephen Schiff, and based on Vince Flynn’s novel.
Nikita Mikhalkov‘s production company Three T has released the 45-second clip from its upcoming sports drama film Going Vertical (Движение вверх). Based on the true story of the Soviet Union’s basketball victory over the United States in the championship game of the 1972 Summer Olympics, the film was directed by Anton Megerdichev (Metro). Nikolai Kulikov (Legend No. 17) wrote the script.
