The Lovely Bones

DreamWorks just released the first poster for Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. We posted the trailer way back in August, but this one is aiming squarely for award season, and as with most of Jackson’s work, it is visually stunning. The film also features Saoirse Ronan, who at 15 already has an Oscar-nomination for her work in Atonement, and the early buzz is she may be a contender for this as well. The Lovely Bones is due out December 11th, and I’m expecting big things. Poster (and a few stills) courtesy of Yahoo after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Loews Lincoln SqureThe cast is starting to round out for Oliver Stone’s sequel to Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps as Susan Sarandon has stepped on board. In the film, Sarandon will play Shia LaBeouf’s mother, what I am positive is a vital role to the story (note: not). In addition to the mother-son pairing, the film also sees Michael Douglas reprise his role as Gordon Gekko, and recently signed Frank Langella to play an aging mentor. Read the rest of this entry »

Photo Dump: Leaves of Grass

Half Poster

Let me make you a pitch: Edward Norton plays two characters – one a stoner, oneĀ  an Ivy League Professor. After the Ivy League professor returns home, his brother gets him caught up in a scheme to take down a local druglord. Susan Sarandon, Keri Russell, and Richard Dryfuss co-star, as does Tim Blake Nelson, who is also writing and directing.

It has win written all over it.

Because the film is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival, they have put up three photos from the film and it already looks great. It looks like it has a Pineapple Express vibe and lord knows I loved that movie. Norton doesn’t do a lot of comedy, but he certainly has the chops for it. Expect to read a lot more about this film, especially on this site closer to its wide release. Check out the photos, as well as the full poster, after the jump.
