Dark Knight Rises Set Photos
While The Dark Knight Rises did some massive exterior shooting in Pittsburgh, PA over the weekend, it seems that details of the film were exposed to passersby as they snapped their pictures. As a result, a floodgate of set photos and videos have been unleashed onto the web showing Tom Hardy in full costume as he will appear in the film as Bane, as well as a few glimpses of Batman’s new high-tech ride.It seems all going well in Gotham City, what do you think of these leaked pictures ?
Red State Trailer
Podcasts, poster auctions, self-distribution deals, roadshows… it’s safe to say that Red State has taken the path less trodden to the big screen. But are Kevin Smith’s innovations a glimpse of a brave new world for indie filmmakers or a one-off from a man who’s often cocked a snook in the direction of Tinseltown? The film is about a crazed preacher Abin Cooper (Michael Parks), a David Koresh figure with a similarly sized arsenal, is the man whose idea of Christian faith deviates just slightly from the norm. We can’t see Rowan Williams packing quite so much firepower under his cassock.Out in cinemas September 30th
Sushi Girl Trailer
The aftermath of a jewel heist. Thieves meeting in a warehouse. Sushi Girl’s premise may seem somewhat familiar from a certain Tarantino film about to celebrate its twentieth anniversar, but neither Reservoir Dogs nor City on Fire had the central hook of eating raw fish from the body of a naked woman. And they didn’t have Luke Skywalker and Candyman in the cast.The trailer for Sushi Girl snuck online a week or so ago, but we almost missed it in all the Comic-Con excitement. Which is odd, since its roster of Mark Hamill, Tony Todd, Michael Biehn, Jeff Fahey, Danny Trejo and Sonny Chibah is ridiculously Con-friendly. The set-up is that a gang of crooks, six years after a robbery, meet to celebrate their success but gradually spiral into violence and animosity over the actual whereabouts of their missing stash.The clip makes much of a van crash that we suspect represents just a fraction of the film’s running time, but that cast looks like a hell of a lot of fun, and we’re always happy to hear Roxy Music’s In Every Dream House a Heartache. Out Spring 2012
The Smurfs + Cowboys & Aliens share the top spot in the U.S.A
Now here’s something you don’t see every weekend – a near total dead heat between two brand new films of hugely varying genres. And while the final figures could tell a very different story from the studio estimates that arrive across the weekend, it looks like genre mash-up Cowboys & Aliens has arrived neck and neck with kiddie pic The Smurfs.Yes, the Jon Favreau-directed, Harrison Ford/Daniel Craig-starring pic that finds Western tropes blended with sci-fi action arrived with $36.2 million this weekend, with The Smurfs launching to the same figure. Wonder which one will win out in the end – or whether the final result will have them staying in place?
