HBO has released a new trailer for Mosaic, an ambitious project from Ocean’s Eleven and Traffic director Steven Soderbergh and former Universal chairman and CEO Casey Silver, along with writer Ed Solomon.
Mosaic is an interactive story in which you can make choices to follow the story from different perspectives. It’s both the name of an app, which launched this week and is where you can choose different paths, and also the name of a six-part limited series airing on HBO in January. The limited series will be Soderbergh’s version of the story, and people will be able to compare how their experiences with the app played out compared to Soderbergh’s version. The cast includes Sharon Stone, Garrett Hedlund, Frederick Weller, Beau Bridges, Paul Reubens, Jennifer Ferrin, Devin Ratray, Michael Cerveris, James Ransone, Jeremy Bobb, and Maya Kazan.
You can read the full details in the press release, and watch the trailer and a cast interview video below.
The first trailer for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk from two-time Academy Award winning Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Brokeback Mountain, and Life of Pi director Ang Lee has been released online by Sony Pictures.
The movie, which is based on the book of the same name from author Ben Fountain, follows Billy Lynn who is being celebrated with some fellow soldiers during the halftime show of a football game after a battle in Iraq. It stars newcomer Joe Alwyn as Billy Lynn, as well as Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin.
Check out the trailer for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk along with a synopsis below.
Tron 3 (rumored to be titled Tron: Ascension) was so close to production that stars Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde were expected to report on set in Vancouver in the Fall. However, with the disappointing box office performance of Tomorrowland, Disney decided to shut down the Tron sequel before it even entered production. Fans refused to believe that Tron 3 would never happen, and even started a petition to get it back into production.
Disney didn’t even mention at the D23 Expo earlier this year if they were still considering releasing Tron 3, but for those who are still holding out on hope of it getting made, Hedlund has an optimistic outlook. According to what was told to him, the project isn’t dead, but rather Disney is still trying to find the right story. More on this below.
Recently, Disney had to announce that they weren’t moving forward with Tron 3 (better known by its working title, Tron: Ascension). The studio didn’t give any specific details as to why they decided to pull the plug, but despite numerous reports that the cast and crew were due to report on the Vancouver set this fall, they never actually greenlit the film. So now that Disney halted production on the film, loyal fans of the cult film have stepped up asking the studio to reconsider the decision and start preproduction on the sequel again.
