Bradley Cooper leaves The Crow
The new film based on James O’Barr’s cult graphic novel The Crow is having a hell of a time flying through the cloudy skies of development. It’s had more than one director drop out, and now the latest star set to fill the title role has had to leave for scheduling reasons, with Bradley Cooper heading out the door.Cooper entered into talks to play tragic, vengeful musician Eric Draven back in April, but now it appears his commitment to David O Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook and Alex Proyas’ Paradise Lost means he’s passing on the part. Irony alert: Proyas was the man who brought The Crow to life the first time back in 1994.Right now, there’s no word on who will end up taking the part, though production company Relativity Media is already starting the search in earnest.
The Women in Black Trailer
The teaser trailer arrived in April, now the full trailer to Dan Radcliffe’s First Post-Potter film has been released.
Not much of the plot is given away, aside from the talk of the central house and its horrific spectre, so a quick refresher for anyone not up to speed: Daniel Radcliffe stars as young lawyer Arthur Kipps, who is summoned to settle the legal affairs of the recently deceased Alice Drablow. When he arrives, he soon discovers that her erstwhile home has a tragic history and a haunted legend, and is quickly enveloped by the mystery.If the finished product is half as pant-wettingly fearsome as this trailer, we should be in for something great. James Watkins’ film will be out on February 10 next year.
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Posters
On July 19, 2011, the internet came into possession of a Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy poster that showed Gary Oldman’s George Smiley transformed into numbers. It was universally acclaimed as “bloody good”.So it should come as no surprise that those clever folks behind the John Le Carre adapation at Working Title have released several other very similar characters posters, depicting Colin Firth’s Bill Haydon, Tom Hardy’s Ricki Tarr, Mark Strong’s Jim Prideaux and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Peter Guillam as lines of code too.
Underworld: Awakening Trailer
Does it really take two directors and a batch of writers to make an Underworld franchise entry? Apparently, in the case of Underworld: Awakening, it really does. Check out the results in the new trailer below.
Set 15 years after the events of Underworld: Evolution, the new outing finds Selene (Kate Beckinsale, back front and centre after sitting out prequel Rise of the Lycans) escape from years of captivity to discover the world is a very different place. Humans have discovered the existence of both vampires and werewolves and are on a campaign to make both species extinct. That has sparked off an all-out war that will see loyalties tested, super-Lycans created and Selene running around as usual, slitting throats, throwing weapons and generally being a badass in tight PVC. Oh, and she goes in search of the daughter she didn’t know existed until now, Lycan/vampire hybrid Eve.With Michael Ealy, Charles Dance, Stephen Rea and India Eisley also among the cast, Underworld: Awakening will chuck things at us in 3D on January 20 next year.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Trailer
The devilish directing duo that is Neveldine/Taylor have released Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’s first trailer, and we’ve got it here for you below.
As you can tell, it’s definitely not a simple sequel to the previous Ghost Rider – after all, this one has him vomiting flames at people’s heads and pissing like he’s got a broken flamethrower attached to his groin.Still, it’s very exciting stuff, and we can’t wait to see more footage. Can this not-actually-a-reboot-or-a-sequel work? Can Johnny Blaze ever be a proper “hero” on screen? We guess we’ll only find out when Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance tears through cinemas on February 22, 2012.
