Darren Aronofsky’s Jennifer Lawrence Vehicle ‘mother!’ Bumped Up a Month

For a movie directed by a well-regarded arthouse stalwart with mainstream appeal and starring an actress who was the biggest movie star on Earth as recently as three years ago, it’s weird that mother! has remained almost entirely shrouded by secrecy. We know that Darren Aronofsky’s new movie stars Jennifer Lawrence, it’s some manner of home-invasion psychothriller, and the cast includes Javier Bardem, Kristen Wiig, Ed Harris, and Michelle Pfeiffer. We saw the poster, which finds JLaw ripping her own heart out in a lush vernal scene like Mola Ram on vacation in Argentina. But apart from that, it’s a big, strange question mark. Word on the street says a trailer is on its way, and yet it’s still impressive that a project this high-profile has gotten so far while remaining almost totally incognito.

Anne Hathaway Breathlessly Joins Sci-Fi Thriller ‘O2’

Sometimes all a thriller needs to be really exciting is one simple, intriguing concept. Like, say, a woman wakes up stuck in a cryogenic chamber and has to figure out how to get out of it before her limited air supply runs out. Sound good to you? Good, because it’s happening, and Anne Hathaway is starring in it.

Todd Haynes Follows Two Children Across New York in First Trailer for ‘Wonderstruck’

A new film from Todd Haynes is always something to look forward to.

With Wonderstruck, Haynes looks at the world through a child’s eye (or in this case, two children), and the first trailer has finally arrived to give us a taste of what to expect this fall.

‘Dark Tower’ Director Takes Matt Damon’s Robert Kennedy Biopic as Next Project

When a big studio tentpole comes out, it’s common practice for the personnel involved to take their next jobs around the same time, riding the crest of publicity generated by the release. Usually, the offers start coming in shortly after the film in question hits theaters and proves successful or less-so, and the news will follow that. But when, say, the director of the upcoming Dark Tower adaptation signs a deal for his next project weeks in advance of his big premiere, it’s a sign foretelling one of two things. It’s either so good that a studio made him an offer too appealing to pass up, or so bad that he just wants to sign a contract before word gets out.

Sandra Bullock to Go Post-Apocalyptic in Netflix Thriller ‘Bird Box’

Sandra Bullock has been relatively quiet as of late. She starred in Our Brand Is Crisis and lent her vocals to Minions in 2013, which means the last time anybody actually saw her face (sorry, Our Brand Is Crisis) was in 2013’s Gravity. Presumably, she’s been getting some quality time with the family while waiting for the right script, which has hopefully come in the form of the all-ladies Ocean’s 8 due next year. But today brings the news that the former Miss Congeniality has now laid plans for another future project, and this one’s going online.

Is This Harry Styles in ‘Dunkirk’? An Investigation

With Dunkirk hitting theaters this weekend, you’re probably well-aware that a certain mega-famous pop star has a role in Christopher Nolan’s World War II drama. Those unfamiliar have likely wondered, “Who the hell is this Harry Styles person?” But casting the former member of wildly popular British boy band One Direction (there it is) has the potential to attract a different sort of army: Thousands of Harry Styles fans who may not have been interested in seeing a war movie from the guy who made those Batman films. Sounds sensible enough, and yet if your familiarity — like mine — with Harry Styles begins and ends with a vague awareness obtained from Twitter, you might have trouble spotting him in Dunkirk.

Warner Bros. Is Making Another ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ Reboot

Invasion of the Body Snatchers is an undeniable sci-fi classic, the O.G. one-of-us-in-this-room-isn’t-human narrative, which is probably why it’s been remade so many, many times. The original 1954 novel The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney inspired the 1956 Don Siegel film, which was then remade in 1978, in 1993, and agin in 2007 with Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman (The Invasion). So it should come as no surprise that Warner Bros. is making plans to reboot the story for the modern era.

Jim Henson’s Son Says Steve Whitmire Made ‘Outrageous Demands’ and Flattened Kermit’s Character

The Muppets have been mired in a sort of scandal recently, started by the firing of Steve Whitmore, who had been the voice and hands of Kermit the Frog since the untimely death of Jim Henson in 1990. Now, Henson’s son Brian Henson has offered some more insight into the matter.
