'On the Road' one sheet: How do you sell the Beat Generation? -- EXCLUSIVE

Jack Kerouac’s On the Road is such a seminal, sui generis work of Beat Generation fiction that it’s taken 55 years since its publication for a feature film adaptation to make its way to movie theaters. Everyone who’s read the book has an idea of how the story of two friends on a meandering road trip across America should look. Perhaps the biggest challenge facing director Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) was distilling all those disparate ideas into a single, unified feature film.

Then comes an even trickier question: How do you sell it? The Beats weren’t exactly known for being commercially oriented artists, but when you have a film featuring stars like Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams, and Kirsten Dunst, you kinda want to have them on your movie poster. How do you do that without making it seem like a crass play to boost your box office?

The design team at Percival & Associates have come up with an elegant solution in the final one sheet for the film, and EW has an exclusive first look. Check it out below (click the image to embiggen):  READ FULL STORY

Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams to star in David O. Russell project

The cast for an upcoming, as yet untitled dramatic project from Silver Linings Playbook writer-director David O. Russell is official, and it includes A-listers Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams.

The trades had reported months ago that Bale had dropped out of the project, with Cooper taking on the true life role of a financial con artist. However, according to a press release from the upcoming film’s producers Atlas Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures, Bale will play the con artist, with Adams as his mistress and partner in crime. Cooper will play an out of control federal agent working with the pair “to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians,” according to the release. Renner will play the local hero and passionate but volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly, who is also the mayor of lower-income Camden. The film is tentatively set for release in late 2013, and will begin production on the East Coast in mid February.

'The Master' extended NSFW trailer features scenes cut from film -- VIDEO

Paul Thomas Anderson released the final trailer for The Master yesterday, revealing footage that didn’t make the final cut of his critically acclaimed film. The new scenes reaffirm Joaquin Phoenix’s character Freddie Quell’s erratic, unpredictable, and animalistic nature, while stressing Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character Lancaster Dodd’s charisma, charm, and perversion. Watch it below.

'On the Road' teaser trailer: Kristen Stewart, Jack Kerouac, and jazz, baby, jazz -- VIDEO

Instantly entering the race for the best trailer of the year, the new, dialogue-free teaser for On the Road mixes an expertly edited collage of shots from the long-awaited adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s seminal Beat Generation novel with a propulsive jazzy score and a key excerpt from the novel itself spoken by Kerouac stand-in Sal Paradise (voiced here by actor Sam Riley). Also: Some excellent fontage. Check it out below:  READ FULL STORY

'The Master' trailer: 'The only way to defend ourselves is to attack'

A new trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master continues the impressionistic tone of the film’s advertising campaign. There’s a bit of stirring oratory from Philip Seymour Hoffman. There’s Joaquin Phoenix going full Method, raging and strangling and smooching. And there’s Amy Adams, quietly whispering “The only way to defend ourselves is to attack.”

It remains unclear just how closely the Hoffman character is based on real-life virtuoso L. Ron Hubbard. But we can all agree he has a hell of a mustache. Watch the trailer: READ FULL STORY

TRAILER: Amy Adams plays rough with Clint Eastwood in 'Trouble With the Curve'

Amy Adams may play the first character to ever call Clint Eastwood a coward and live to tell about it.

Her feisty turn opposite the veteran tough guy in the film Trouble With the Curve starts out seeming like a slightly raunchy father-daughter baseball comedy, but — perhaps appropriately — the trailer throws a bend into the plot just when you think you’ve got it figured out.

Check out the trailer for the film, opening Sept. 21, below:  READ FULL STORY

FIRST LOOK: Clint Eastwood back on screen in 'Trouble With the Curve' -- EXCLUSIVE

fl-trouble-with-the-curve

Clint Eastwood is never out until he says he’s out.

Following 1992’s Unforgiven, the actor and filmmaker ended his storied Western career, and that was years after closing the book on Dirty Harry.

When he made 2008’s Gran Torino, and hinted he might be done acting altogether, and seeing as he was 78 years old then, it seemed very likely. He’d already quit performing for every filmmaker except for one ­ — himself.

But when his longtime cinematic sidekick Robert Lorenz took the helm of the family baseball drama Trouble With the Curve (in theaters Sept. 28), the iconic actor was persuaded to step in front of the camera once again — with another director behind the camera for the first time in almost 20 years.

All right, batter up! Check out the first photos of Eastwood’s return to the screen. READ FULL STORY

Behold 'The Master': Philip Seymour Hoffman surfaces in new tease -- VIDEO

Our first glimpse of The Master focused on Joaquin Phoenix’s squirrely Freddie Sutton. The latest spot for Paul Thomas Anderson’s forthcoming religious study casts the net wider but is no less intense. Anderson once again uses Jonny Greenwood’s spare-to-the-point-of-stress-inducing strum-and-drum orchestration underneath the interactions between Sutton and The Master himself, Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman).

Crackling volatility keeps their tug-of-war relationship taut as the “hopelessly inquisitive” Dodd bores into Sutton’s psyche. He may have smiling eyes and a lovely wife (Amy Adams), but it’s quite clear that Dodd is relentless. But is he a prophet or a Master manipulator? (Or both?) You’re going to need to take a few deep breaths after watching this one. READ FULL STORY
