Netflix has released a new trailer for their upcoming original movie War Machine, which is directed by David MichÃ´d (Animal Kingdom, The Rover) and stars Brad Pitt. The streaming service acquired the film back in 2015.
The movie is based on the book The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, and tells the story of the rise and fall of a four-star general (played by Pitt).
You can read a full synopsis for the movie and watch the new trailer below.
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Ben Affleck‘s Live By Night. Set in the roaring 20s during the Prohibition era, Affleck plays Joe Coughlin, the son of the Boston Police Superintendent, who has strayed away from his upstanding roots to become a gangster who will make a name for himself, even if that means going against some of the most notorious mobsters and crimelords.
Writer and actor Michael Bacall, who worked on the screenplays for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World with Edgar Wright, found footage party flick Project X, and the movie remake of the ’80s TV series 21 Jump Street, has been hired to pen the script for Weird Science for Universal Pictures.
The movie will be a remake of the 1985 comedy of the same name written and directed by the late, great John Hughes, which starred Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith as a couple of nerds who accidentally create the perfect woman using a computer. What they end up with, however, is much more than they ever expected. The original also starred Kelly LeBrock, Bill Paxton, and Robert Downey Jr.
A few new short videos have hit the web, and they have people trying to figure out whether they’re part of Warner Brothers’ viral marketing campaign for director Christopher Nolan‘s massive trilogy-maker, The Dark Knight Rises, or if they’re just a crafty fan helping to add some buzz to the movie.
All three videos were posted on YouTube by a user called The Fire Rises, which is the same name on Twitter that revealed the first image we saw of Tom Hardy as Bane not too long ago. Each video is very chaotic and hard to follow, but they do suggest that there has been a massive breakout at the infamous Arkham Asylum, and that anarchy now reigns. All three videos also use that haunting chant we heard on the official Dark Knight Rises website…which, interestingly enough, doesn’t seem to be there anymore.
You can see all three videos for yourself by clicking on over to the other side now, and let us know whether you think they’re real (and effective), or completely fake.
It’s being reported that a new movie in the National Lampoon series is now on the way, but it’s not quite the mindless processed generic college movies they have been making the last few years. No, this movie actually isn’t involved with the National Lampoon name at the moment, and will bring us right back to their roots with those lovable simpletons, the Griswold family. This new movie is planning to actually focus on the son in Vacation and its sequels, Rusty, and his family now going on a road trip of their own with references to his old family adventures. Wacky hijinks are sure to ensue.
New Line Cinema is currently meeting with writers to get a script going as soon as possible, and it is noted that places will be left wide open for the main draw Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) and his wife (Beverly D’Angelo) to appear in some fashion as the now grandparents. The movie is aiming to be more like Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Little Miss Sunshine instead of other road trip movie trash like and Are We There Yet? and RV.
