The first trailer has emerged for Big Eyes, Tim Burton’s latest film starring Amy Adams as painter Margaret Keane, whose signature is the oversized eyes she gives her figures.
When she meets and marries Christoph Waltz, he suggests trying to sell the paintings under his name, reasoning that nobody is interested in buying “lady-art”.
Sure enough, the paintings are wildly popular, and the money begins to roll in, but Margaret finds that the lie becomes increasingly hard to live with, particularly as it begins to consume her marriage.
Take a look at the new trailer, below…
This looks like the most interesting Burton project for many a year, while Adams and Waltz look to have turned in brilliant performances, the latter coming across as particularly unnerving as he begins to take ownership of the paintings in private as well as in public…
Co-starring Krysten Ritter, Terrence Stamp, Jason Schwartzman and Danny Huston, Big Eyes will open in the UK on 26 December 2014.
Chris Nolan doesn’t do things by halves. This week there have been more Interstellar posters hitting the Internet than there are stars in the sky.
Not that we’re complaining, especially when we’ve got the best one yet - completely exclusively.
Nolan liked this image from his film so much he made it one of the US posters for his complex space-exploration epic, and we can see why - it’s a truly awe-inspiring shot, beautifully rendered, with a stunning mix of colours.
We really can’t wait to see the sequence - travelling through a wormhole - it depicts in motion.
Check it out below, and click on it to see the hi-res version.

The film is out on November 7 and we’ll see you in the queue at the IMAX.
Magic In The Moonlight is in cinemas tomorrow, and to mark the occasion we’ve got our hands on some exclusive behind the scenes stills.
Scroll down to see Emma Stone seemingly looking a bit baffled by Woody Allen’s direction, Allen apparently praying to a God we thought he didn’t believe in (“If God exists, I hope he has a good excuse.”) and more.
Set in the 1920s on the opulent Riviera in the south of France, Woody Allen’s MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT is a romantic comedy about a master magician (Colin Firth) trying to expose a psychic medium (Emma Stone) as a fake. What follows is a series of events that are magical in every sense of the word and send the characters reeling. In the end, the biggest trick MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT plays is the one that fools us all.
Directed by Woody Allen, the film stars Emma Stone, Colin Firth, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Jacki Weaver, Simon McBurney and Eileen Atkins.
Matthew McConaughey will not be returning for stripper sequel Magic Mike XXL, as director Gregory Jacobs claims the film will be very different from its predecessor.
With McConaughey’s slate positively groaning with offers, it always seemed unlikely that he’d be returning for round two, and Jacobs has now confirmed that that will be the case.
As to what we can expect to see from the new film, the director went on to stress that it will be something of a departure from the formula that served the original so well…
“What am I allowed to say?” he begins. “It’s a road trip movie and put it this way, it’s different enough that once you see it you’ll understand why we made a sequel. No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice.”
With original director Steven Soderbergh on cinematography duties, and Channing Tatum ready to disrobe once more, Magic Mike XXL will open in the UK on 7 August 2015.
Paranormal Activity 5 has received an official title, and has also been moved by Paramount into a brand new 2015 release date.
The latest instalment in the long-running horror series will be entitled Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension and will hit US screens on 13 March 2015.
The film had initially been pencilled in to land on 25 October in order to capitalise on the Halloween market, but has now been shunted back by some five months in the schedule.
No plot details have been confirmed as yet, although the film will mark the directorial debut of Gregory Plotkin, who was responsible for producing the last three instalments in the franchise.
The fifth film had initially been scheduled for October 2013, only to be bumped to January, and then replaced by spin-off The Marked Ones. Hopefully this latest release date will prove to be the real deal…
Bond 24 looks to have found a replacement for cinematographer Roger Deakins, with Dutchman Hoyte van Hoytema set to sign on as director of photography.
It was something of a disappointment to hear that Deakins would not be returning to the fold after doing such a stellar job on Skyfall, although van Hoytema certainly comes with real pedigree.
Having made waves with his work on the original Let The Right One In, he recently worked on both Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy and Her, and was also hand-picked by Christopher Nolan to shoot Interstellar.
It has also been rumoured that after making the leap to digital on Skyfall,Bond 24 will be shot on film, a technique van Hoytema also employed onInterstellar.
Directed by Sam Mendes and starring the returning Daniel Craig, Bond 24will open in the UK on 23 October 2015.
Alex Kurtzman has been discussing the forthcoming Venom spin-off, and while he stops short of giving too many details away, he does reveal that a lot of thought is going into the adaptation process.
As is the case with many comic-book characters, Venom has been presented in several different forms throughout the years, and choosing which of these iterations to adapt has been one of Kurtzman’s biggest challenges.
“I would not say [picking the incarnation of Venom is] an easy choice,” begins Kurtzman. “I would say that there are quite a few things about Venom that are interesting.”
“Venom had several different iterations, and there are several things that are very unique, interesting and specific. And so I think we all want to make sure that we’re making the right choices for a character that’s so beloved.”
“Before last Friday came out, we started kind of roughing out a story,” he continues. “Ed Solomon’s going to be writing it very soon. I can’t tell you too much, but I’m really excited about it.”
As is to be expected, he’s keeping his cards pretty close to his chest, but it’s good to know the appropriate amount of deliberation is being taken to make sure justice is done to the character. We’ll find out how successful he’s been when the film lands in 2017…
Sony is set to plunder the ‘90s for its next horror remake, with the studio set to breathe new life into slasher caperI Know What You Did Last Summer.
Written by Scream scribe Kevin Williamson, the original was part of the late-‘90s boom in teen slasher movies, bringing in $125 million at the box office and spawning a suitably half-baked sequel.
The story focuses on a group of teens who find themselves stalked by the hook-wielding figure they hit with a car and left for dead during a drunken night out.
According to the report, Oculus director Mike Flanagan will write and produce the remake, although it is unclear whether he will also be occupying the director’s chair.
Sony is thought to be planning this one as a low-budget venture in the vein of Oculus (which only cost $12 million), with the aim being to have it ready for a 2016 release date.
A new trailer has arrived for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay pt. 1, in which Katniss openly goes head to head with President Snow and his repressive regime.
The new teaser reveals Peeta’s position as a prisoner of said regime, forced into appearing as the poster boy for the status quo, in direct opposition to Katniss.
There are also appearances from series newcomers Julianne Moore and Natalie Dormer, while the action also takes a significant turn for the epic.
Take a look at the new trailer, below…
It remains to be seen how well the series finds its feet outside of the games-led framework of the first two films, but it’s exciting to see the story taking a different turn, with all-out war on the horizon…
Directed by Francis Lawrence and co-starring Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay pt. 1 will open in the UK on 21 November 2014.
