The first trailer for The Upside, a remake of the 2011 French film The Intouchables, has been released.
While the film, which stars Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston, was originally scheduled to hit theaters last year, it is just now starting its marketing campaign. This after the fallout of the Harvey Weinstein scandal that put The Weinstein Company into ruin. Check out the trailer below.
Adaptation of YA Novels are a dime a dozen. So few of the ones that do launch find their way on the path of a sequel. How City of Bones did it is beyond me. But Summit Entertainment hopes that the adaptation of Veronica Roth‘s Divergent series is one of those to join the ranks of Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games.
The film is set in a futuristic Chicago where all of its citizens are separated into classes based on their personality. Shailene Woodley plays Tris, a special breed of human who cannot be identified by her personality, therefore she is seen as a threat to society by the government. Hit the jump to see both the trailer and the poster.
The worldwide debut of the first footage from Divergent aired tonight during the live pre-show broadcast of the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, NY.
Watch the footage here below.
At SDCC back in July, we got a chance to see some footage from the film, which showed Shailene Woodley‘s character, Tris, about to choose which societal faction she will belong to for life. In this newly released trailer, the footage was more focused on the fact that Tris is a “divergent,” a person who cannot be categorized into one faction, which means she’s in danger of being eradicated.
It’s been difficult to get a film adaptation of Drake’s Fortune into production, and with Neil Burger taking himself out to direct the project, fans of the video game will have to wait a lot longer before they can see Drake seek a lost treasure. But Sony is hiring two writers who are familiar with the themes of Drake’s Fortune, which may help steer the adaptation into the right direction.
Variety reports that National Treasure scribes Marianne and Cormac Wibberley have been hired to write the script for the film. The recent hiring is a smart move as the two have had plenty of experience writing about riddles, puzzles, and ancient hidden treasures.
